Okay /b/ I decided im going to get into anime. Any suggestions?
Dont. Friend did the same thing. Dropped out of school and lost his girlfriend within 5 months. Room is decked out with cum stained anime figurines. Computer is filled with adware because of all the hentai hes tried to download. Just recently lost his job too.
Avoid the new shitty anime full of retarded lolis and such, start with easy to understand and short shows like Death Note if you'd prefer, but get into deep heavy stuff as soon as you can so you don't get alienated by modern japanese culture, stuff like Evangelion, Mushishi or Berserk, it really depends on your tastes though so pick themes that you like for example SciFi, Medieval, Real life dramas or whatever, you'll find yourself googling stuff alot, I can't really recommend an ideal show to start with cuz my tastes are fucked, but I think Full Metal Alchemist would be a good start, also remember NOT TO WATCH SHITTY WAIFU ANIME OR YOU'LL BECOME A WEEABOO AND THEN YOUR LIFE WILL GO DOWNHILL REALLY FAST. Check some movies too like Ghost in the shell or Cowboy Bebop, maybe even Akira. Ok.
aside from already posted stuff
Welcome to the NHK if you feel like you need some motivation in your life
Space Dandy (watch after Cowboy Bebop if you wanted more)
Working!!! if you want some Slice-of-Life with a work setting (because we can all relate)
FLCL (Fooly Cooly) for a very odd but down to earth anime
Haganai for some ecchi and generic high school club setting
Sakurasou no Pet no Kanojo for another ecchi-ish generic high school club setting but with much more meaningful characters with a more post-depressing tone for the protagonist
/b/ has a surprisingly good taste in anime, wasn't expecting that
I don't like 99% of anime because it just seems to be a bunch of bright colors and loud noises to me, but there is one I followed pretty closely because it had an awesome fucking story and that was pic related, Cowboy Bebop
Some things I see suggested here are good like full metal alchemist and serial experiments lain.
But sometimes mindless comedy and lewd characters are nice as well, I'd recommend high school dxd if you just want something interesting to watch that doubles as lewd.
Yeah but Serial Experiments is much more than that, I meant stuff like those ecchi harem anime where there's a bland protagonist surrounded by shallow girls with big tiddies
>a bland protagonist surrounded by shallow girls with big tiddies
>high school dxd
its actually not that bad at all anon. quite bad ass honestly.
and space dandy has big ol titties but very fucking deep by the end
i know theres another ecchi harem thats really deep by the end but cant think of it
space dandy isnt harrem but still

you gotta know what you wanna see and then you have to look kinda hard if its pretty specific
which you can ask these theads for
but I agree, I have a hard time finding a decent one
Also OP if you feel like dying you should watch Texhnolyze, it's definitively one of my favorite shows of all time though it'll bring you down to the dirt, so stay away from that kind of stuff for now, but keep it in mind.
>tbh with you anon i love them mainly for the romance.
Tbh you're the biggest faggot here.
None other shows have the romance I want.
They all seem to forced.
and batman are the only shows and stories that do love stories right
that ive seen
>record of lodoss war
>dominion tank police
>ghost in the shell
>vampire hunter d
>kill la kill
>magical shopping arcade abinobashi
>rin: daughters of mnemosyne
>no space battleship yamato
the fuck is wrong with you infants, this board is for grownups. come back when your voices have cracked.
jokes aside, this list is fairly solid though
Space battleship Yamato 2199.
Fucking Macross, thanks man I knew I forgot something. To add onto that:
>tenchi (take your fucking pick)
>samurai x (the mini series not the rurouni kenshin bullshit)
>fate/stay (take your pick)
>the cat returns
>little witch academia
Ain't nothing wrong with watching an anime for the sole purpose of fan service. Just as long as you recognize that's what you're doing and not delude yourself with the idea that there's a plot.
No im doing it and it doesnt matter i dont have a job and my girlfriend cheated on me so why do i care about that? Lastly im not planning to be completely into it i plan on just watching a few animes and keep up on a series ill enjoy
Is that a challenge?
Ive noticed hellsing is been mentioned a bunch so ill for sure keep that one in mind.
Here's my small collection. Ignore Battle of the Gods if you want, wasn't anything special. Mostly everything else on there is amazing.
>The fact that Gurren Lagann, aka best show of all time without a doubt has only been mentioned once disappoints me. I thought we were better /b/.
Still though. Gurren Lagann is the greatest anime I have ever witnessed.
That show was 100% autism anon. Most anime is. The entire thing was a combination of everything i hate about anime.
The only GOOD thing about the show is its message which is believe in yourself and create your own destiny which as it happens is in every single anime ever made
>That show was 100% autism anon. Most anime is. The entire thing was a combination of everything i hate about anime.
Cutting yourself and listening to Linkin Park or watching Future Diary isn't healthy anon.
>the only anime i ever liked was cowboy bebop
Stop. My sides can't take much more.
Cowboy Bebop: as tons of people have said, is amazing. It actually won awards and put anime in general in a different light. Samurai Champloo, Wolf's Rain, and Space Dandy are made by the same people, so if you like Bebop, you will like the others.
Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z: The others are not as good as this story. This entire series covers three generations of Z fighters, and watching them grow up is insane and weird. Plus, lots of fighting, yelling, and constipation that causes your power level to rise.
Ghost in the Shell: All of it, it's all good. It's a serious show though, so don't expect much humor minus the serious, dark jokes they add.
Gundam Wing and anything before it: Anything after loses the feel of "It's a mech suit"
Outlaw Star: Watch it.
Kenshin, YuYu Hakusho, and Escaflowne
Vampire hunter D: Bloodlust
Afro samurai (best one imo, both the movie and the series)
Ghost In the shell
Terror in resonance (tthis one is also really good)
Old myazaki films (nausicca, princess mononoke, porco rosso)
But the one film you.must watch no matter what, is "Akira" it is honestly one of the best films I've ever seen
This guy knows what he's talking about,
Anima is being mass produced now, and there are so many shitty weeaboo shows you must steer clear of
People will try and tell you weeaboo anime is good but you must not listen, it will ruin your perspective of good quality anime
ewwwwwww, normie television
I suggest you not get into anime.You do not wan't to get into the rabbit hole that is anime cause you will obsess over it, and it will ruin your life. If you care about ever having a meaningful relationship with another human being or having a life in general then just turn around, run, and never come back.
"I'm in love with the Koko"
Shin Sekai Yori. Shit was dank. I felt sorry for the faggotrats.
watch evangelion/Hellsing Ultimate OVA, psycho-pass and steins;gate, then decide further which of these tolerable genres you want to dig in deeper.
If you directly want to move towards general weebness, try watching yuru yuri or kissXsis "for the humor" / "for the plot".
practically anything from studio Ghibli- Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind is probably my favorite
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Neo Tokyo (Manie Manie)
Ghost in the Shell
Memories (90s film, includes "Magnetic Rose")
Dragonball (the manga has a lot less filler)
Detective Conan (I actually only ever read the manga to this, can't vouch for the anime)
Ah My Goddess
Tokyo Godfathers (one of my Christmas standards)
Death Note (tho overrated, still very good)
Attack on Titan
Gotta check out Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
It may not look like it, but it's hardcore, and one of the oldest long running manga. Its super fresh and the action/suspense is top tier.
Had me edging.
In all seriousness, the series is essentially one giant beautifully drawn fanservice to established, post-GAINAX, ensemble-cast, hand-to-hand combat anime tropes. I grew desensitized by its over-the-topness every few episodes and had to come back to it a week or two later
if any anon has the dutch subs for that serie, that would be awesome
If you like rollercoasters of feels and slice of life romance, Your Lie in April is perfect. If you're a musician, that anime in particular will really hit close to home, but if you aren't it's still just as enjoyable.
Ultimate Anime List That Is Objectively Not Shit, go!
Angel's Egg/Tenshin no Tamago
Grave of the Fireflies
5 Centimeters Per Second
One Punch Man
Ghost in the Shell
Erased (one of best the best new anime)
Beautiful Bones (kinda interesting :/)
Bakemonogatari (don't no with others from this series, not as good)
Flowers of Evil (manga is better and completes story, literal 10/10)
Jin Roh The Wolf Brigade
Voices of a Distant Star
The Place Promised in Our Younger Days
I'll stop there. Basically, you can't really go wrong with any of these. There's probably more, and you'll likely get tastes the more you watch, but I'd say all of these are my watch for sure.
Yes, actually. While it does have some elements of weeb trashiness, if you can fly by that, its an interesting story, which cant be said for works with the same levels of garbage.
I actually really liked the Flowers of Evil anime for some reason. The rotoscope was eerie and gave the story the perfect atmosphere it needed.
Also I feel like the anime ended at the right place more or less. Everything after that in the manga feels kind of drawn out and doesn't really fit the story. There were a whole ton of chapters where it basically feels like it's a completely different manga. Although to be fair, it's possible the publishers forced the author to wrap up the story, and he had a wider plan for how the story was supposed to go that he didn't get to write.
Either way I can forgive it, the manga and anime are in my top 3 favorites, with Oyasumi Punpun somewhere in there too.
OP, if you want to consider suicide, definitely read Oyasumi Punpun
I determined the items for this list by story/character/art quality. These are my personal baseline requirements.
While I would say there are items which have hints of weeb, I would also say those are certainly palatable.
So there I guess. Justification.
Yes but in my opinion, someone new to anime should get a fat hit of that good good, before they're exposed to weeabooish shit, because it may taint their view of anime as a whole (and might even turn them into a greasy pillowfucker)
Glad to finally meet someone who enjoyed Flowers of Evil. I also thought the rotoscope was a good choice, I just enjoyed the remainder of the manga story. Although I do agree it got pretty lighthearted and the ending felt a bit off. You might be right about the publishers forcing it.
I'll have to check out this Oyasumin Puppun, never heard of it, so thanks for that.
>Naruto< personal bias
The Future Diary-strickly watching yuno psychotic nature is amusing
Deadman Wonderland (As long as you don't mind a protaganist that doesn't grow balls at all, also has no ending)
Deathnote-10/10 no complaints
Kill la Kill-Ecchi madness, just fan service imo
heard cowboy bebop is gud
Bleach was good up until after 300 episode where it got repetitive and ichigo lost his powers
Full Metal Alchemist. Either or, both amazing.
and last but not least,
>Clannad and Clannad after story< Never have I ever had an anime hit me this hard. This show will fuck your feels like Pill Cosby fucks your ass. Quite literally.
> greasy pillowfucker
Kek. Gotta remember that one.
I will say I'm in agreement with you. I just figured those had low to acceptable levels of weeb. But I giess you're right.
I guess it comes from my own experience growing up with a lot of anime (much of which was good, so) and not turning into a weaboo freakazoid.
Space battleship Yamato 2199, fuckin oath. If you want some spirit raising, manly single tears of joy, fucking EPIC DEEP SPACE BATTLES - I recommend this shit.
I love space opera genre, and 2199 is THE space opera that defines the genre. I loved every minute of it.
Also steins; gate if you want grown up, yet scientific feels.
Technolyze or Ergo proxy if you want that gritty, dystopic, grown up kind of feel. Although I wasn't a huge fan of Ergo proxy it seems to have quite a following, and I give it credit.
If you liked Texhnolyze I would recommend "Now and then, Here and there". Not cyberpunk but same general atmosphere and also brutally depressing.
Look at all those faggy suggestions
Go watch love stage. After that look around and pic something for yourself. Do some legwork faggot.
the irresponsible captain tylor
martian successor nadesico - shit first episodes good last half
the twelve kingdoms
ghost in the shell series
bubblegum crisis 2040
full metal panic!? fummofu
Damn dog were you my old video store?
Same, sadly my older sister is a bit of a weeaboo, but my older brother acted as a filter and only showed me high tier anime while growing up. Which led to my anime superiority complex and hatred of all things weeaboo
>not Hellsing Ultimate OVA
because the Gonzo TV series is one of the biggest fuck-ups in the entire history of chinese cartoons compared to the already finished OVA production
