Anime and/or Manga

Recommended Posts

I got into the whole anime thing with Dragon Ball Z, and currently enjoying Naruto Shippuden. Have watched Naruto since episode 1, not so great with the names but i liked the way the series has grown. I do not read the manga because i would much rather see the action. I watched Bleach but was disappointed at the way it ended. I have watched Blue exorcist, Death note, Soul eater, and some more names that i can't recall at this moment. Currently looking forward to Attack on Titans season 2, and hopping to looking into some other titles while i wait for season two of Attack on Titans.

 

So what anime have you been watching or looking forward to watch and what manga are you currently enjoying?

Yeah, I really wish they would get back into the lore of bleach. They left so much unanswered about Ichigo's dad, the whole royal court of the spirit realm. It could have been such an amazing series. Naruto needs to die though, for real.

If you like DBZ and Naruto/Shippuden check out One Piece, Fairy Tale, and Katekyo Hitman Reborn.  All three have awesome character buildup throughout the show and have the same comedy yet badass  fighting like DBZ and Naruto.

 

I have watched so many different animes over the year I couldn't list them all off the top of my head but I will list a few.

 

Cowboy Bebop

Trigun

DBZ

Naruto/Shippuden

Fairy Tail

One Piece

Hitman Reborn

Tenjou Tenge

Bleach

High School of the Dead

Death Note

Full Metal Alchemist

 

I know I am forgetting A LOT of animes I have watched but these are some that just jump into my head.

There were rumors of Naruto ending in 2014 but this has been proven false.  There is no end in sight currently for Naruto.

 

Also if you are looking for a place to watch anime I recommend http://www.animedreaming.tv/ I have been watching/streaming anime on this site for 5+ years with no problems.

NEVVVEERR!!! Well at least not until we see the older version of Naruto. See em as a Hokage and hopefully in

his older days. I just hope it doesn't end how DBZ GT ended..

As for Ichigo i was hoping to see the Soul King in some form. I agree, so much left unanswered.

@[member='bustacol3'] Samurai Champloo is really good.

 

Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040 is a slightly newer version of the classic Bubblegum Crisis,

 

Sekirei is a good ecchi fighting anime.

 

Blade of the Phantom Master is a good movie, and its on Netflix.

 

Zillions of Enemy X Ignition isn't bad, only released up to episode 6. It kind of bounces all over the place time/plotwise.

 

Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai is a good martial art anime w/ecchi and harem >.>

 

Shikabane Hime Aka, aka Corpse Princess and its second season are really good.

 

Tenjou Tenge is only rated 8.65 on animeplus but I really enjoyed, about two delinquets trying to take over a school

 

Mutsu Enmei Ryuu Gaiden: Shura no Toki, if you like martial arts animes its a must watch. About a hand-to-hand style that is reported to be invincible.  Has two story arcs, the first one imo is amazing and second one ok. The end fight of the first arc with Miyamoto Musashi is awesome.

 

Area 88: About a shanghaid fighter pilot fighting in what seems to be based on Israel's six day war, trying to stay alive and make it back to japan to his girlfriend. animeplus has it at 8.29 but I'd say its close to a 9.

 

Dog Days, what can I say, this anime is definitely for the kids but I really enjoyed it. In the land of Fronaldo, the Republic of Biscotti has been aggressively attacked by the Lion Kingdom of Garette. Facing potential defeat, Princess Millhiore summons a hero who can save the country. What she gets is Izumi Shinku, a middle-school boy from Japan. Awaiting him in Fronaldo is the task of becoming hero enough to defeat his enemies while learning the peculiar rules of battle in this strange new world.

 

Machine Doll  wa Kizutsukanai, must watch can't wait for season 2.

 

Inuyasha, its a classic but personally I havent been able to get past 5 episodes or so.

 

Murder Princess, I really enjoyed this one: a coup d'état has occurred and the princess, after witnessing the death of the King, is on the run. She meets with battle-hungry bounty hunter Falis, and with a twist of fate they both switch souls, making Alita the maid of the now princess Falis. Named for her bravery in confronting the enemy as ‘Murder Princess’, Falis must continue to be the princess as well as confronting any new opponent that comes to her way.

 

One piece is another highly rated classic I can't stand.

 

Break Blade is definitely worth the watch: Rygart Arrow is an un-sorcerer, a rare individual who is unable to levitate even the smallest crystal. Living with his brother on a farm, he receives a letter from an old friend, Hodr, the current king. Close companion of the king and queen when they were students at Assam Military School, Arrow is informed that a war is about to occur. Hodr called him because an ancient type of Golem has been found in a mining shaft. No one has been able to move it and Queen Sigyn, an expert engineer, suspects that maybe an un-sorcerer might be the key to activate it.

I watch anime in the same season they air, averaging about ~15 shows each season. Legend of Galactic Heroes is definitely one of the greatest anime I have ever watched. Although quite old (1988), it makes up for its dated animation in its presentation of the two main characters on opposite sides of a war that spans the galaxy. One aspires to rule it while the other just wants to earn his paycheck and survive until retirement. It's full of space opera greatness.

Baccano! is very good and actually where I got my username from. It's unique in how it tells a story as well as its setting, which is based on the 1930s in the United States.

For a more recent show, I'd recommend Girls und Panzer, Arpeggio of Blue Steel or Gundam Build Fighters. The latter is blatant advertising for the Gundam franchise but it has stunning animation and action. Girls und Panzer is a show about high school girls practicing the art of tank warfare as a sport. Arpeggio uses an uncommon technique for animating (3d computer graphics) but it works nicely for its ship battles, of which there are a lot.

I totally forgot about Baccano!

An awesome series with a great charackter setup and amazing story telling. Cheers man.

 

@[member='Nessa']:

Seriously Nessa, blame the industry for including that much "fan service" into animes. They got on the "sex sells" train since years.

Apparently some have quite a good storyline or setup like Desert Punk which has some quality moments and turns 180° at the end of the series.

But I am with you, it is realy annoying  watching Animes like OP and getting absurd DD implants of EVERY female character waggleing all over the place.

And of course the plot goes down the drain.

Oh I'm not upset about the volume of ecchi that exists, just that there are alot of ecchi recommendations in this thread. There are so many different kinds of anime, and I see the majority of recommendations being ecchi is all. 

 

I'm guilty of only liking a few genres too so meh.  :mellow:

Well, instead of condamn this thread would you enlighten us simple minded primates  with some of your recommendations? :)

I am always looking for something new and refreshing out of the mainstream pool. Some old classics would also be much apreciated.

Yeah the fan service at the end is a little stupid but ignoring it the rest of the show is really good, and I'd only say about 1/4 of my recommendations are ecchi. Ecchi covers a lot of ground though, technically Beezelbub is ecchi, and it is a hilarious show. Elfen Lied is "Ecchi" because at the start there is nudity but it's totally badass.

 

Strike the blood is "ecchi" but I don't recall any nudity in it, the only "ecchiness" is when the main character has to drink blood, but its not like Seikwan no Qwaser which is pure retardation imo. Ikkitousen and Queens blade both seemed like they could have been, but Ikkitousen's humiliation of the characters is way over the top and Queen's Blade is pretty stupid with unnecessary over the top ecchiness.

 

I also labeled ecchi as such so if its not your thing you can ignore it, and I like a wide range of anime mainly ignoring the romance genre unless its mixed in with comedy/action.

LOGH is one of the greatest works of Scifi/space opera around, period, but its definitely not for everyone. It can be pretty dry at times.

I highly suggest Rurouni Kenshin, Highschool DxD (an ecchi harem anime), and Mobile Suit Gundam.  All of those are highly excellent anime for different reasons and I won't spoil anything about them other than they are awesome.
