    [Anime] need new anime

    just recently started getting into anime and have seen quite a lot this past year!

    i can watch almost anything just as long as it is well written or is funny enough to make me finish it.

    i have seen a few animes that i did not like but finished anyway just because.

    in any case, ill jot down the ones i have seen this year, so no one suggests anything i have already watched.

    as far as length goes, as long as it is an amazing story i can deal with a show that stretches past 24 episodes.

    -Steins gate***********
    -The UNLIMITED hyogu kyosuke (ongoing)

    (probably atleast 10 i am forgetting or have forgetten the names)

    there are a few i have started buy need to finish but this is the main gist of it, im actually not sure if this would be considered a lot for a years worth of anime lol, im sure some would find it small.

    but anyway as you can see a big majority of these have recently come out, so anything thats older but not too old thats similar to anything i have stared would be great.

    then ofcourse, but not this year

    samurai champloo
    cowboy beebop
    death note
    naruto/bleach/fairy tale - ongoing

    i keep up with naruto/bleach/fairy tail even though i mainly read their mangas.


    ok, i pretty much will watch any genre of anime as long as its good, or funny enough to have me finish the series. here is my personal breakdown of each genre

    ACTION/ADVENTURE - now these can be in 2 separate categories, but typically adventure usually always has action. for these i look for a good plot, good animation (because crappy animated action scenes are grrrr) and good character progression. there are many animes that fall into this category. a few of my favorites are code geass, samurai champloo, FMA: BH, cowboy beebop, trigun, sword art online, and other shows such as these.

    SLICE OF LIFE - now for me, slice of life means a few simple things, it is typically a story of a group of 4-5 highschool girls and what they do on a daily basis. for me slice of lifes have literally NO PLOT. it is just what they do, sort of like the show friends, but minus the plot and all girls. 2 shows to me that promote these ideals are lucky star and yuruyuri, both enjoyable but i love lucky star much more. just pure entertainment with no plot that you need to keep up with over the course of the season(s)

    DRAMA - to me is a slice of life with a plot, same sort of idea of a group of highschool kids, which usually has a male or 2 involved. these can be much more dramatic (duh) and usually give a much more in depth character background to its cast than what i would consider a slice of life to be. for me DRAMAs incluse clannad and kannon 2006. shows like those are what i consider to be dramas.

    HAREM - the dreadful harems! the shows that plague every single season of animes sense forever lol. it can be very tricky for a harem to be good, its 99% of the time about 1 guy with 4-5 girls who want his piece, with only actually 2 of them wanting him for who he actually is, and 1 of those 2 being the victor in getting him. most harems try to develop some half ass plot just as an excuse for the animator to show close ups of bouncy unrealistically large breasted 16 year olds. i have seen a lot of harems but i honestly have only like maybe 2-3 of them because they actually had a decent plot to follow. one of which is boku wa tomodachi ga sukunai and a bridge to the starry skies, there is also 1 i am forgetting.

    then there are shows where i honestly have no idea where to place them. such as the monogatari series, considering its a mix of fantasy, drama, action, and adventure(in the sense of all the trials the main character goes through in the people he meats)

    Have you seen Inuyasha? I like it although it can be a bit tedious during filler episodes but there are plenty of guide/reviews out there on which are the filler episodes so you can skip them.

    Looks like you're far enough down the rabbit hole to enjoy Fate/Zero. It's old but you might like Escaflowne and I always recommend Claymore.

    You liked Chuuni, so more Kyo Ani like K-On! and Haruhi should be up your alley too.

    Oh yes, Claymore is a good one, as is Death Note if you like a good story. I liked Fate too, couldn't get into Escaflowne personally. I actually saw a pretty cool one called Elemental Gelade, I liked it although it got quite weird towards the end and in my opinion it has a pretty standard anime story.

    So few good animes that comes out nowdays. Out of every new show that starts maybe 1-2 are even decent. I can only recommend SAO from this season and you have already seen it.

    I could recommend the new Hunter x Hunter but it might not be for you judging by your list of watched shows. Maybe have a look at Zetsuen no Tempest and Btooom!.

    yes i have seen all of inuyasha, hard to forget seeing as it is like 200 episodes lol

    and ya i forgot to also mention death note and claymore haha.

    Honestly suprised that you liked Code Geass but not Zetsuen No Tempest, but try out Guilty Crown.

    Looking at the list you didnt watch the original series of Full metal alchemist. It is really worth watching and imo it is better then brotherhood. Btw they both actually follow fairly different stories by the end, so while it will be similar to begin with, by the end it will be a very different story. Also Death Note is really good. But then again my knowledge of anime is probably very lacking compared to other posters so their advice would probably be more worth while

    Don't worry, you aren't missing much. Escaflowne is a show that started off kind of cool, got all kinds of awesome later on, and then ended with a total clusterfuck of BS plot holes and deus ex machina.

    I didn't pay much attention to your list so maybe i will repeat one or two.

    Welcome to N.H.K
    School Days
    High School of the Dead
    Samurai X
    Death Note
    Devil May Cry

    Don't you like One Piece? You refer Naruto, Bleach and Fairy Tail but not One Piece. You are losing a hell of an adventure.

    Ps: Wow, when i see your lists guys i feel like i am a starter in the anime world. I think i didn't saw more than 10-12 animes and i think it's too much, but then i see your lists here on mmo champion, not necessarily this thread, and... OMG!
