"Anime recomendation, please!!!" , posted Wed 20 Jul 03:26post reply

i liked anime in the visual side but then when i realize how dramatic they are i started to have conflicts Looking for an anime to watch.

I asked this question in other forum with not success. Letís try if you guys understand me.

I donít like any of the ďnewĒ popular anime in sites like animefreak or animeratio. Code gias, no wayyyyyyyyyyyy, I consider the English vs Japan thing so stupid I almost vomit and its too dramatic.

My prefferences Papuwa and cawboy bebop:

Papuwa, because of the humor and crazy stuff and cowboy bebop because of the science fiction, humor and not so dramatic plot, its was too creative. Strangely when I saw it well its reminds me futurama, obviously 100% better (I wonder if that anime inspired futurama creators).

Any anime recommendations?

Not quite sure I understand exactly what you'd like to watch, but I'll just recommend some of the stuff I liked:

Story and/or visuals: Eve no Jikan, Kara no Kyoukai, Katanagatari, Spice and Wolf, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Comedy: Minamike (season 1 only), Lucky Star, Maria+Holic, Ika Musume (starts slow, gets better), Nichijou

I've been told that Madoka Magica and Durarara are good.

I can't recommend Abenobashi Mahou Shotengai enough - if Excel Saga's "something different gets parodied every episode" structure appeals to you, this certainly will, but it has a more serious and down-to-Earth story behind that to even things out.

This may not be what you're looking for, and I may be putting my rugged, masculine reputation at MMCafe on the line by recommending a shoujo manga (if I had such a reputation, anyway), but NANA is pretty great and you should watch it.

It certainly indulges in some melodrama as the series progresses, which isn't exactly my thing, but it's still just really solid and watchable. There's a vicious hook to keep you watching in the way they frame the story, but I can forgive it one because it's clever and makes for good drama, but more importantly because the characters are great and do interesting things. Madhouse really nails the production, as well. The sound design and (Japanese) voice acting are fucking exceptional.

I found it randomly on Netflix and started watching it with my wife, and was really, really surprised at how much I liked it. Along with Death Note, this is the only anime I've seen in forever that I would actively recommended.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that, like the central characters, I moved from a small town to the big city in my early 20s in the late 90s/early 200s. The experiences and emotional texture just feels very familiar and real to me.... so your experience may vary.

Also from a male perspective, while there are a lot of anime chicks I've thought about sleeping with, in that abstract way one thinks about having sex with a fictional character, I actually fell in love with Nana O.

But hey, since you're a girl (that's my impression, at least), you're the "target demographic". So go forth and consume this fine product!

...

Man, I really unloaded some personal feeling here. Anyway, try giving it a give a few episodes.

The first oav is taken from a chapter of the manga during the jinchu arc. It is undeniably excellent. However, the second oav, Reflection, I thought was very terrible and even Watsuki said he didn't like it.

Anyway, a new Kenshin anime is coming out soon and I hope it covers the jinchu arc.

Is this sarcasm? Lowering testosterone levels is considered good? HAHAHAHAHAHAH (i am going to pretend i never pay attention to this) hehehe

I give NaNa a try the first 3 episodes and I canít deny itís caught me, its well developed, liked that metro life setting. The drama is kind of modern and realistic, I knew some girls who had this drama issues.

But by MY girl point of view it remind me why I cursed the day I got in puberty.

Whenever I see an anime recommendation thread, I want to un-recommend stuff that people have recommended. But that's just rude.

On the subject of NANA, I really loved the manga for a while, but I eventually got too angry at the characters. In the same way that I get frustrated at friends who ignore good advice and wreck their lives, I got frustrated with...pretty much everyone in the series. On one hand, I hated to see bad things happen to them, but on the other hand, I resented them for doing bad things to themselves. It was like "Do you even DESERVE a happy ending anymore?"

That doesn't detract from the quality of the series...just the opposite, really, but it made me have to step back from it and I never returned.

I never saw the second movie. I was pleasantly surprised with the first. Having already read (much of) the manga, I wasn't too excited about the anime, but I enjoyed the opening and closing themes enough to try to learn "Rose" on bass.

I was being honest/"funny"
And yes I'm still watching Nana on a daily basis. I don't regret it. As Polly said I would hate to see such situations unfold in real life. But I just like the characters, the settings and the overall production values too much to ignore this anime.

Tatami Galaxy and Kemonozume are my two favorite shows of recent years.

You can watch Tatami Galaxy for free (legally!) here:

http://www.hulu.com/the-tatami-galaxy

I dunno if it'll be your cup of tea, but try to stick with it for at least 3 episodes. It's really good!

Tiger and Bunny is also pretty cool. I watched a few episodes of it and it was fun.

If you want an awesome movie please pick up Redline when it comes out on DVD. It's fantastic beyond words.

Have you gotten to Lunatic yet? I love him so much. I'm just on my toes whenever he shows up. He was the focus of a recent episode, and I feel like the show can only go downhill from there.

When I started watching the show, I thought it was pretty mediocre, but strangely addictive. Even though I wasn't really pulled in, for whatever reason, I kept watching. I'm glad, though...it's only gotten better and better. If you were happy with the early episodes, I would enthusiastically encourage you to keep watching.

The show has "star power". I would recommend it to anyone, whether they were into anime or not. I'm glad it has some meat to back up its natural charm, though.

Have you seen Sacred Seven? If T&B is Sunrise's shot at American Superheroes, Sacred Seven is the Japanese side. Very much like an old tokusatsu show. You in particular should check out the first episode, at least. The animation in the big battle is totally amazing. I was so-so on the show, but the final battle in that episode just blew me away. I thought "if there's only one more battle like this in the rest of the show, it'll be worth watching every episode just so I don't miss it."

I've only seen the first couple of episodes of Tiger and Bunny. I liked it! It wasn't moving or anything, but it was fun and just felt like a good story. I like the idea of corporate sponsored Super Heroes. Previous takes on this sort of thing have been very political and cynical. I like how sunny the show is so far. I agree that it's the kind of show anyone can enjoy, not just anime fans.

I will give Sacred Seven a shot, thanks for the recommendation! I'll watch anything if it has fun fights. I finally got an HD TV recently, so I'm all excited bout movies, shows and games again.

Got me totallllly hooked. I remember I started watching the series on a lark fansubbed on VHS (!!!) and I got instantly hooked. It didn't have a big budget, it wasn't animated that well, but it was paced very well, the music was fantastic and the characters came through incredibly well. When I got to the ending my jaw was agape for the entire half hour, culminating in the biggest cliff hanger everrrrrr.

I immediately sought out the comics, which was a slow process that involved saving up money then going to visit my brother in NY and hitting up the Kinokuniya every few months. Worth every penny!

Good times!

The proper thing to do after watching Redline is to reach deeply into your soul, converse with your inner child and find out what you've always really wanted to do. Then spend the next 5 years pursuing that thing with intense vigor. Whether you reach your goal or not is secondary to whether you tried or not. Plus in the process you will meet a kindred spirit and fall into passionate earth shattering love and maybe make/adopt some babies who will carry on your burning spirit.

I watched, of all things, Evangelion 2.22 last night and I've got to say-- it's just freaking gorgeously animated. So much so that I spent I don't know how much longer after watching it watching the 'creation of' reel where the different stages of its animation are presented in a split-screen manner. I suppose it's some minor kind of spoiler, so...


Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
There's a scene where all three Eva units are running across the landscape, and the impression of speed and scale is fantastic. Little tiny cars and subway trains are thrown into the air and huge power lines are leaped over like hurdles. Even in the original I was fascinated by how much of Tokyo 3 was built to support Evas running around like mad across it, and it's been made even more so in the remake: huge bunkers rise up from the ground to provide a platform for Evas to run around on and leap off of.

End of Spoiler



Also, I will second (or third) the suggestion that someone made way back about Tatami Galaxy. While I found the speed of the subtitles to strain even my relatively fast reading speed, it was beautifully done in a completely different way from a monster like Evangelion.

Also also: Eden of the East was enjoyable recently as well, but I'm surprised to see that the movie has not yet made it to the US market, at least not in a way that I can find that doesn't involve a torrent and has me actually trading a few dollars for it.

For anyone interested in cyberpunk stuff, I'd recommend the Mardock Scramble trilogy. So far, only the first entry of the series has been released, but IIRC, the second one should be out in theaters soon.

The story is a bit archetypical, albeit quite refreshing due to some plot devices and good, somewhat original characters that make the film engaging and enjoyable. Don't expect another GitS, but it probably is the closest we are going to get to for a while...

I warn you though: the first film ends in a major cliffhanger (even worse than the ending of 1995 Mortal Kombat). If you are the kind of person who hates this, I'd suggest to avoid it until the sequel is out...

For anyone interested in cyberpunk stuff, I'd recommend the Mardock Scramble trilogy. So far, only the first entry of the series has been released, but IIRC, the second one should be out in theaters soon.


Just did a quick google search and found some gorgeous art by my favorite illustrators:

Katsuya Terada

and

Range Murata

Delicious!



Wow, thanks for the pics, Nobi!! Despite being a mere thumbnail, Terada's cover looks awesome, as (almost) everything he does.

Now that you mention Terada, you made me recall I have yet to purchase Saiyukiden Daienoh vol.2 . Did you get a look at it already? In case it's any good, I don't know whether I'll be able to wait for an English release...

And what about your essay on researching Asura's Wrath's art influences? I'm eager to read it, and I bet I'm not the only one...

I was browsing through independent anime on YouTube a few months ago. Like with indie games, it's interesting to see what people come up with.
Here's the search tag, for anyone else who's interested.
