    Find an anime, suggest an anime.

    Remembered posting this on an anime board a good while ago and it was useful for a good few people, so figured I'd post it here, hopefully it'll help at least someone find something new.

    Well basically, we all know that sometimes finding a new anime right after you've finished an awesome show, so what this thread aims to do is help people find some new shows and or suggest some new ones.

    Your posts should be a bit like this

    Name a few animes that you really liked
    - I suppose we can leave out outlaw star? I mean we all love it right? -
    list a few that you're not such a fan of.
    then if applicable, list 1-3 you've been eyeing up, and people can tell you their opinion of it.

    I guess Ill start then?

    Love FullMetal, Trigun, Elfen lied, liked The gundam series, Dragonball z, fairy tail etc.
    Dislike Naruto. Just. Naruto.
    Been SERIOUSLY eyeing up Cowboy Beebop and debating Claymore.

    I suppose I'm guilty of only really liking the more popular ones, but I'm pretty open minded

    Anyone else?
    Chang Wufei: I do not intend to fight. Now hurry up and retreat

    Duo Maxwell: The god of death shall rise again but for now. I need some sleep...

    Gildarts: Fear is not evilů It tells you what your weakness is. And once you know your weakness, you can become stronger

    RE: Find an anime, suggest an anime.

    Fullmetal Alchemist or Full Metal Panic!?

    1. Desert Punk - Great action/comedy with plenty of crude humor to keep any guy laughing and great action.

    2. Nadia: Secret of Blue Water - An oldie, but goodie. Great story with a lot of thought provoking plot.

    3. Neon Genesis Evangelion - The standard for giant robot anime. Real deep and complicated story about three teenage pilots with their personal struggles of who they are and fighting angels out to destroy humanity.

    Thanks to Netflix and Hulu I can't think of anime I'm currently wanting to watch. I just see it listed and just start watching.

    As for anime to avoid I can name a few:

    1. Angel Cop - No matter the amount of violence can not make up for lack of story.

    2. Nadia: the Motion Picture - This piece of sh*t could ruin have the whole series if it weren't for the fact that ADV did a limited the release of this monstrosity. One third is just flash backs of the TV series and the rest is just crap. Avoid if at all possible.

    RE: Find an anime, suggest an anime.

    I did indeed mean fullmetal alchemist ^^" As I've never got round to watching Panic either!

    But I've never watched desert Punk! So I could very well give it a try

    I Agree with you on Neon, it is was hell of a great show.

    As for netflix and Hulu, you guys are so lucky ):, in the UK Netflix's anime section is abysmal, and I don't even think we can get a proper Hulu account over here without some proxies etc ):

    RE: Find an anime, suggest an anime.

    Well Netflix has dropped the ball when they lost the contract with Starz Ent. and Geneon went tits up here in the states. So, yes the anime selection is a lot smaller now than it was five years ago. Hulu here has a pretty decent anime library of fairly new and old anime. I'll be honest I watch a lot of the fan subs of currently airing anime in Japan. That way it gives me an idea of what anime when it comes over to be dubbed that I would buy.

    If you like NGE you probably would like Nadia. Produced by Gainax and written/directed by Hideaki Anno. It's basically NGE light and with a lot of familiar plot devices that carried over to NGE. Desert Punk is a must watch and give Full Metal Panic a try it is a good series.

    RE: Find an anime, suggest an anime.

    The two animes that have really jumped out at me the past couple months were Colorful and Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. I was in a humor mood after going through EVA again, and I stumbled across Colorful (a show about guys weaving for the perfect panty shot) and P&S (feels like a TV-MA Powerpuff Girls). I highly recommend both of these.

    Fun Fact: Panty & Stocking was created from Gainax studio.
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.

    Haven't seen P&S yet, but seen Colorful classic from ADV about how far discrete pervs will go to see a little of white heaven.

    RE: Find an anime, suggest an anime.

    Watched all of Medabots a while back. Been meaning to get around to ZoE Dolores, I and possibly ZoE Idolo as well.
    Fighting through Aliens, Robots, Insane sick people, demons, plants, dragons, fish, squids, jellyfish and more for the good of the forum!


    When I play a game, I usually want to see lethal amounts of death and destructive amounts of ruination.

    Watch ZoE Idolo first it is the prequel to both the games and anime.
