PostSubject: I need help picking an Anime to watch   Sun Feb 24, 2013 8:18 am

Okay, recently I've really bee getting into Anime, however now I've caught up with Hunter X Hunter, I'm stuck with just Naruto to watch. Can anyone reccomend something decent to watch?

To give an example of the sort of show I like, I'm a big fan of Black Cat, Bleach, Death Note, Dragon Ball, Hunter X Hunter, Naruto and Shaman King. And out of those, my favorite by far is Hunter X Hunter.

There is one restriction though, I watch on a Roku, and the only Anime channel on the UK edition is CrunchyRoll, so any anime you pick has to be available there.

You mean Neon Genesis? It's not on CrunchyRoll.

Some of the popular series are Sword Art Online, Shugo Chara, Space Brothers, Eyeshield 21, Beelzebub and Cardfight Vanguard, there are others, but they either look crap or have barely any episodes.

Open your horizons a lot more. It is definitely worth it to watch Neon Genesis. I'd also recommend the following:

If you are interested in ecchi/romantic comedy, check these out:

EDIT: Also, don't watch an anime called Boku.

I watch in my room, and it's a lot better to sit on my bed watching it on a TV than in a chair on a monitor.

It's not a case of opening your horizons, I don't like watching anime on a PC and I really don't like torrenting.

I also have tried Ecchi, and couldn't get into them. Out of the ones listed, CrunchyRoll has Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, so I'll try that. I like anything that has the British take over the world Razz

The top anime I have ever watched:
-Angel Beats: A story about an afterlife (which is basically a school campus) for teenagers who died before they could really make anything out of their lives. Once they accept their deaths they "disappear" from the world and are supposedly reincarnated back in the real world. If you were to die in this afterlife, you simply wake up in the nurse's office of the school several hours later. The main characters are all fighting against the "god" of this world, claiming that he unfairly took their lives and that they don't want to disappear from the world. Easily the best anime I've ever watched, 13 episodes.

-Mirai Nikki: Merc explained this pretty well. 26 episodes.

-Ano hi mita hana no namae wa bokutachi wa mada shiranai (AnoHana): this is hard for me to tl;dr so i'll just post the wikipedia thing:
Quote :
A group of six childhood friends drift apart after one of them, Meiko "Menma" Honma, dies in an accident. Ten years after the incident, the leader of the group, Jinta Yadomi, has withdrawn from society and lives as a recluse. One summer day, the ghost of an older looking Menma appears before him and asks to have a wish granted, reasoning that she cannot pass on into the afterlife until it is fulfilled. Since Menma does not remember what her wish is, Jinta gathers his estranged friends together once again, believing that they are the key to resolving this problem. However, hidden feelings, internal conflicts, and lingering feelings of bitterness from Menma's parents result in complications for the group as they struggle to help not only Menma move on, but themselves as well.
11 episodes, you will probably cry at some point in the last two episodes

-Mawaru-Penguindrum: Three siblings, Shoma (male), Kanba (male), and Himari Takakura (female) live alone after their parents disappeared a while back, supposedly having committed horrible crimes against humanity. They visit the aquarium one day, and quickly after Shoma buys Himari an empress penguin hat, Himari randomly collapses and dies. In the hospital, while Shoma and Kanba are fighting, Himari suddenly wakes up, apparently having her life extended by the soul inhabiting the penguin hat. She informs her brothers that if Himari is to survive her illness, they must bring her the Penguindrum. A lot of messed up stuff happens along the way.
24 episodes.

-Black Rock Shooter: An anime about the character who was the base of one of the most famous Vocaloid songs. Basically there are these five girls who all "control" these other characters in an alternate dimension. The alternate dimension characters (Black Rock Shooter and the others) are embodiments of the girls' emotions, and if one is killed, the corresponding real-world character loses sense of their strongest emotions (going so far as forgetting loved ones, etc). While the main plot is going on in the real world, the events take place in their own way within the alternate dimension. 8 episodes (and one or two unrelated OVA's which came out before the full anime), seriously worth a watch.


SAO is definitely worth watching too.

As far as current anime goes:

Tamako Market is pretty amazing (it's where Dela Mochimazzi and Mochizou came from), it's about a girl whose family runs a Mochi shop (mochi) and then a talking bird named Dela Mochimazzi shows up, claiming he hails from a far off land and is searching for a bride for his prince. Mostly shenanigans. 7 episodes so far.
Sasami-san@Ganbaranai is probably the most confusing anime made in a long while. If I said much about the plot it'd take away the effect, so basically it's about a shut-in girl whose brother teaches at the school she should be going to, and her brother does literally everything to make her life as easy as possible. Except this is literally only what happens in the first episode; I'd seriously suggest at least watching through episode two or three before making a decision on this because it only really gets to the actual plot a bit later.


Although I didn't like these two, they're some of the most popular anime around, so:

•Gurren Lagan:
-YOURS IS THE DRILL THAT WILL PIERCE THE HEAVENS
-MANLY MANLY MANLINESS MANLY KAMINA SHADES MANLY
-BUT WAIT BOOBS
-GIANT ROBOTS
-BIGGER GIANT ROBOTS
-GIANT ROBOTS THAT THROW GALAXIES AT EACH OTHER

•Puella Magi Madoka Magica:
-High school girls
-Kyubey can make one of your wishes come true and give you magical powers but you have to fight "witches" for him
-Witches destroy the world
-If you die or run out of power you become a witch
-Some terrifying things happen??

in that case, you're either going to have to buy a lot of box sets (which are ridiculously expensive for most anime) or miss 99% of the best anime ever created

CrunchyRoll isn't illegal, they get the licences, PS4 is going to have a CrunchyRoll app, they wouldn't do that if it was illegal.

That's it.

BTW Ganon, Baccano! is another I'd recommend. Really good storytelling there with multiple timelines and such. And you won't find many characters funnier than Issac and Miria.

I've seen both, and I have to say it really fits the time era and genre much more in English considering the setting is America in the early 30's. I mean, Maiza and Firo's accents are pretty damn good in the English version.

Baccano! Is actually on Netflix UK Very Happy

They actually have only just updated their anime, and over here then just added D-Gray Man, so I'm going to try that too.

Cowbow Bebop says hello. It's no longer licensed here in the US, though. And I assume the same applies to the other non-aisan markets.

if you're going to watch fullmetal alchemist (which you should), you have to watch brotherhood because the original messed a lot of stuff up
brotherhood is 52 episodes and matches the manga almost perfectly

I've seen Brotherhood on Toonami, and while it has its faults, it's a great series that's definitely worth your time. I never saw the 03 version though.

I'm going to put together a list for myself of the anime I'm interested in that were discussed here. I don't know which to star with, preferably a shorter one. In fact, I think I'll try Angel beats since I know it's really good and have seen a few episodes already.

after you finish Angel Beats, move on to Black Rock Shooter; since it's 8 episodes, it only takes a few hours to binge.

I've done 12 hour binges before, I think I can handle both all at once next weekend. Though I'll probably end up watching them throughout this week.

EDIT: Also, a quick thing about Mirai Nikki: the music is incredible.

isn't toonami dubbed
when I was a weeaboo I watched fmab dubbed at first but was incredibly bored by it
then I switched to subbed and started enjoying it

I was on the penultimate or next to penultimate manga volume though so that may have been a factor

I prefer dub over sub, even if the show is set in Japan. English just sounds more natural for me.
