what are good animes cc? i liked baccano the most and most other stuff cant hold my interest
Anonymous 05/24/17 (Wed) 03:14:37 PM 69
I never watched Baccano and to be honest I don't plan on watching anything in particular right now, but maybe I can recommend you Durarara!!, since the writer of the light novels is the same as for Baccano. I liked the first season, mostly because of the first arc, but I never watched the second season.

I really liked Mob Psycho 100 and just finished season 3 of the Jojo anime. I started watching JJBA in December and I'm still so obsessed with it, it's fantastic.

I've been told by a friend that the anime is great but that the manga is longer and that at some point it turns to shit, is that true? By the way, why do shojo manga that aren't magical girls manga seem to always have short anime adaptations? Or they straight get a drama but no anime? I wish we could have a decent Fruits Basket anime for example.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has been my all consuming interest for almost a year now so definitely seconded.

Yeah, the anime stops in the middle of the manga story. God knows why, as far as I know the anime was very popular in Japan, they even did a live version of it .
No I dont think it turns to shit. At all. You can read it online , its everywhere (only 25 or 26 tomes too so not super long).
Re: your last question, I can only think it is because magical girls have more fans (like watched mostly by children and also some adults) while the other types are mostly adults.

I really want to get back to watching anime online this summer. Maybe I should even read some shojo manga since they barely get anime adaptations and there are many of them I never finished reading (not counting Nana since it's on hiatus forever).
I'm going to start using netflix and pay for crunchyroll again so I can at least continue Gintama. I was really into it when the anime had only 250 episodes or so, I stopped watching at 210 episodes I think, and then new seasons got announced. I'm half asleep so I'll post some of my personal favorite manga and anime that I can recommend for you guys later. Anonymous 07/04/17 (Tue) 10:49:47 PM 614 >>603

I recommend Death Note, Haruhi, and Higurashi. They share similar aspects with Baccano and are overall good mystery anime.
If you're looking for something comfy, Azumanga Daioh, Maid Dragon, Lucky Star, K-On, and Haibane Renmei are good.
Other recommendations: Katanagatari, Lain, Arakawa Under the Bridge, Slayers, Black Lagoon, ef, Evangelion, Flip Flappers, Gakkougurashi, Hen Zemi, Hibike Euphonium, Kill la Kill, Konosuba, Bakemonogatari, Little Witch Academia, Kure-nai, Maria Holic, Nichijou, Nichibros, Ebichu, Galko-chan, Panty & Stocking, Paniponi Dash, Prison School, Sakamoto, Saiki, Youjo Senki, Rakugo Shinjuu, Zetsubou-sensei, Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru, Kuzu no Honkai, and Sakamichi no Apollon.
Hopefully you'll find at least one of these to your liking.

I just finished Princess Tutu and really enjoyed it. It plays with magical girl and fairytale tropes, so it's usually considered to be somewhat subversive/deconstructive of the genre but it's not grimdark and edgy like madoka. It has a good amount of fluff an feels, but a solid story. Really enjoyed the soundtrack as well.
Anonymous 07/19/17 (Wed) 11:30:04 PM 683
I'm very picky with anime. Might come off a bit pretentious but the series I'd recommend are solid plots 10/10.
>Berserk Best manga of all time hands down. The art/story/character developments is impeccable. The original 90's anime isn't that great whatsoever but the 2012-2014 OVAs are decent adaptions. The current anime covers the manga's plot more in-depth but definitely needs better animation. I'd recommend watching the three OVAs, then moving on to season 1 and 2 that were just released as they were intended to be viewed in that order. >Cowboy Bebop Perfect western sci-fi drama. Incredible soundtrack. Pretentious af but pokes fun at itself. The plot is constructed so neatly and well-executed. The characters are very complex and dynamic. >Samurai Champloo Not at all the same feeling as Bebop but written/directed by the same dude and therefore quality is on par. >Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine A short series that serves as a prequel to the rest of the Lupin saga. I never got into other Lupin series but this one is particularly engaging. The animation is top-notch and again there's a killer soundtrack. The themes are quite mature but it remains classy and the show comes to a great dramatic climax. Oh and the protagonist is a woman so the POV is very different than usual Lupin. >Serial Experiments Lain This one is totally different from my usual choices. The plot and characters are very subdued. It's a short 12 episodes but the concepts and themes explored are rather fascinating. It partially helped to inspire The Matrix and other cyberpunk animes. This thread reminds me I've been meaning to catch up on so many shows and movies, ugh!

It seems that nobody has ever even heard of The Vision of Escaflowne and it drives me mad. If you're a fantasy-junkie like I am then it's pretty much the quintessential fantasy tale,with it ticking virtually every box throughout the progression of all 26 episodes. It's got forbidden romance, politics, adultery, swordplay, monsters, demi-humans, magic, assassination, a weirdly-high tech militaristic empire, floating fortresses, interdimensional travel, corrupt monarchies, rebellious princesses, dashing knights, a handsome rogue, beastmen, mecha battles, a lost civilisation etc.
It's such a rich and vibrant world and I almost feel like crying when I have to remind myself that it's unlikely that new content will ever be produced for it. There will never be another fantasy anime as good as Escaflowne. Anonymous 07/20/17 (Thu) 07:09:33 PM 688 >>687

different anon but I recognized it from twitter when my mutuals were freaking out about how morbid Harada's latest doujin was, so I read it, and it was
about Mob/Hijikata, I think it was just called 'Kabe' ('Wall'), where Gin is looking for a lost cat but can't fit through this hole in the wall to see the other side, so he asks Hijikata to do it. Hijikata agrees but then he gets stuck in the wall, where Gin rapes him but then leaves him in there while he goes to town in search of something to widen the hole and takes Hijikata's pants, and so Hijikata gets raped by a gang of burly old men who were passing by. Gin comes back on the other side of the wall, unknowing to what has just happened, with something to widen the hole, but the damage is already done and Hijikata is a mess.

I'm really not into anime or manga as much as I used to. I feel like it has to do with having a crappy laptop so it's hard to watch anything on it, not having my own TV, and fandoms being full of annoying SJWs, weebs who take their hobby way too seriously or people who post spoilers everywhere and all the time. I want to watch some anime I never finished or couldn't watch when they aired but I'm not really motivated. Last time I watched something it was Yuri!! on Ice I think. And only because my computer used to work a bit better at the time and I watched it with friends so it was more fun than watching it by myself.
By the way, how often do you watch anime? I used to wait until I had a lot of free time so I could watch as many episodes as possible at once for longer series.
While I'm here, I might as well recommend wsome of my favorite anime and manga:
>fruits basket and some other of the author's manga >black butler >jojo's bizarre adventure >nana >fullmetal alchemist >level e >yu yu hakusho (pic related) >space dandy >neon genesis evangelion, although I watched it when I was barely in middle school so I don't remember it very well >otomen >lovely complex, but like EVA I forgot a lot of things about the manga >yuri!! on ice >princess jellyfish >samurai flamenco >tiger & bunny >gintama, which I haven't finished yet >durarara!! season 1, I haven't watched season 2 yet >etc. there are a lot more I'm forgetting or I used to like and don't care all that much about now >>873
Sometimes I wonder what's going on in Harada's head when she draw things like that. It's not even her worse manga.

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is a cute, light anime that surprised me. I'm usually turned off by goofy character-driven plots bc they tend to go to shit, but this kept me entertained the whole time. Plus Seo is definitely my favorite female anime character I've come across in a while.

I extremely love anything with "cute girls doing cute things." My favorite shows lately are where a group of friends explore a new hobby together that I know nothing about. I loved Bakuon so much I want to get a motorcycle now. They don't sell Hane's sufour where I live and it would be really hard to come by used so I want to get a Honda cb500f cause that's the closest thing I can get to it.

Utena is pretty good, but it kind of suffers from ~magical creature~ lesbian syndrome. His other Work Yuri Kuma Arashi is much -much- worse though. I do value Utena, but it needs to be taken with caution since he puts lesbianism on a very very high pedestal and tends to treat lesbians as pure beings.

Oh no, not hating on anime lesbians. I just see so many people take his work as a super progressive take on lesbians in Japan, when in a lot of ways he paints them as fragile magical creatures. I know a lot of people who swear by Utena (including a 'former lesbian), and I guess I got defensive.

I think you misunderstand. The -characters- aren't 'pure' the author treats -lesbians- as a concept, as in any girls with other girls, as pure. Like, he thinks lesbians are somehow more pure than heterosexuals.

Sure, it's bad to fetishize anything, but sis, are you aware of how often lesbians are portrayed as psychotic and crazy with relationships doomed to tragic endings (or they "grow out of it")? I can deal with one person who fetishizes them as pure.
Furthermore, I always take "feminist" or "lesbian" media written by men always with a grain of salt anyway. I'm not saying I think it's right of him to idolize lesbians, but for the love of god, I prefer that to the general state of lesbian stories. If lesbians being pure was thrown around a lot more, I'd be more upset, but that isn't the case.
Anonymous 10/20/17 (Fri) 03:49:00 PM 1443 >>1442

I recommend Kaiji, Ouran High School Host Club, The World God Only Knows, Shinsekai Yori, Uchouten Kazoku, Toradora!, and Hunter X Hunter (2011)
If you have a poor attention span, try Ouran. Kaiji is also good at holding your attention once it picks up some momentum, but the art style and overwhelmingly male cast can be difficult to get past for some.
In my experience, anime recommendations aren't very trustworthy. A lot of people into the medium are young teenagers, and often they'll latch onto pretty derivative, mediocre stuff because they don't have much to compare it to. Most of the suggestions in this thread are good though.
You have pretty good taste. If you like Higurashi, you should try reading the Umineko VN.

If you watched Tatami Galaxy and loved this, this is another movie which features some of the same characters but a different scenario. Finished Anthem of the Heart which had it's moments but was overall meh, and getting through Up On Poppy Hill now. Anonymous 02/07/18 (Wed) 10:57:37 PM 2254 >>66
Are mangoes allowed ITT? Couldn't find a manga general thread in the catalog.
I read Oniisama-e many years ago and was bored out of my mind, maybe I should give it a second try.
I'd like to read more female oriented manga bc most of the ones i like tend to be borderline misogynistic. The only shojo I genuinely love is really short, it's Iguana no Musume by Hagio Moto.

DID YOU? Omg I just finished the anime and holy shit was it FUCKED. UP. I was crying episodes after - you know who- died,
which incidentally in the anime they make it an accident while i know that in the manga it was suicide. I'm dying to read how it happened tho, I mean what took Rei to that extreme since she looked/sounded happy . Anonymous 02/08/18 (Thu) 03:16:51 PM 2261 >>2259
Yeah i vaguely remember that one of the girls that looked like boys had some serious
dramu going on with the other lead girls… tbh i find that type of character a bit obnoxious and unrealistic. The anime might be better, in the manga the drawings and especially the facial expressions were a bit ott, it was pretty but didn't feel like human beings.
The only part of the manga that i remember clearly after these years was when the poor girl was mocked for her reading inexperience, because that made high school me pick up some books lol.
I don't dislike classic shojo though, it's ridiculously charming having characters that are able to feel so intensely, it's like they'll break if you barely touch them and that's just beautiful, but the problem with that is that it can very easily come off as overly dramatic and annoying if your characters aren't human enough. And it doesn't help that to me the "girls drawn like boys" type characters feel super artificial and not human at all, they're basically reverse traps.
I just didn't connect with these characters, either i was too immature when i first read it or they're just not for me. But i liked the classic vintage sorority vibes and how educated and ladylike everyone was so i promise i'll give it a second look with an open mind.

Have you seen (or read the manga) Versailles no Bara? Same author, characters look practically the same (but one of them is actually a man, and the other one - main one, and funnily enough the one that looks exactly like Rei- lives as a man most of her life). Its very fucking good and not as"girly" as Oniisama E.
And yes, the anime was OTT as fuck. Sometimes to the extent of being ridiculous but what else can you expect from an old shojo lol

You should watch the anime version of Oniisama. It's seriously amazing and a very wild ride. The manga is too short to explore the plot that well even though the ideas were solid, honestly. The anime mostly follows the manga but with a LOT of new stuff added in and all of it is great.

I finished watching made in abyss recently, I went in mostly blind and I was very pleasantly surprised.
It's kind of scary, but not a horror movie type of scary, but rather I was afraid for the well being of the characters, it FEELS like they're in terrible danger, it FEELS like they're on a suicide mission. spoiler: when they decided to go down to the abyss I was shouting in my mind "NO! you MORON! you will DIE THERE!", I felt genuine anxiety The whole fantasy style to the world feels very original and creative, it looks beautiful and the entire mythos around the abyss feels so original and fresh I was glued to the screen. I recommend this, probably one of my favorite animes of all time. Expect some gore, well, not OUTRIGHT gore since they always "show" it obstructed from view, but there are strong depictions of painful things happening, with the VAs doing an excellent job screaming in agony.

i just started watching Asobi Asobase - workshop of fun and i really like this show. if any other miners have a crunchyroll account they should check it out. The Daruma Otoshi puppet show at the end of the first episode was one of the skits that made me think of y'all.

I don't understand how some of you manage to watch so many animes, I've watched 2 and a half this entire year lol
Currently I'm watching Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan, it's about a super powerful psychic (as you can see from his name) highschool boy who just wants to live normally and not attract any attention but his psychic powers and his classmates make that hard for him. I really love it.
I know you might not see this but a manga similar to this is Danberu nan kiro moteru (translates to how much do the dumbells you lift weigh but I like to call it "do you even lift") it's about girls starting to go to the gym and learning new exercises. I love the characters, and it's funny and ridicolous.
Oh, another unrelated manga that I would reccomend: Tomo-chan wa onnanoko, it's a comedy/romance or whatever, about a tomboy girl trying to make her crush fall in love with her - or at least acknowledge her as a woman. But the plot is not the reason I love it, it's the characters and the stupid things they do. The picture I attached is from this manga.
This post got a little long didn't it? I hope you don't mind.

Saiki is so fucking hilarious. It just kinda came out of nowhere with no hype or reputation and became one of my fav comedies with ease.

It was like that for me too, I'd never heard of it before I saw this photo on Facebook. Then I decided to check it out and I'm really glad I did

I kinda picky when it comes to anime and my taste might be kinda boring but my absolute favourite anime is Legend of the Galactic Heroes. I literally binged it over the course of two weeks. I legit couldn’t stop watching. The plot, the characters, the backstory and even the aesthetic were amazing. I’d say Cowboy Bebop, Rurouni Kenshin and Angel Beats are up there too. Slam Dunk, Angel Densetsu and Gantz are probably my favourite mangas of all time. As for shoujo, I’m not super into it but I’d say My Heavenly Hockey Club, Lovely Complex and anything by Yuu Watase are bretty good. Smutty josei like Hapi Mari are my guilty pleasure tho.

Haikyuu, Erased, RElife, Steins gate and Yuri on Ice are my favorites. I haven't watched much so if any of you could give recs from those it would be nice

Thanks for shilling this, I ended up loving it after only the first couple of eps and proceeded to watch all of S1 in 3 days. I instantly burst into giggling fits every time the chuuni's theme plays. Best boy.

I put this on my list after readin this reply and I just watched it, I love it, it's so crazy. I like how the opening animation couldn't be more different from the actual show. Also the ending animation is my favorite of all anime I've seen yet

I started watching ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept. recently and I've been enjoying it. I like it when I find anime that doesn't have same-face-syndrome, and I think the stylization is interesting. Plus, the main character kind of has that cool-guy-sherlock-holmes vibe without being over-the-top about it. If he didn't smoke, he'd be on my husbando list.
Although I guess since he's 2D then he doesn't have to worry about lung cancer… Anonymous 08/14/18 (Tue) 01:02:01 AM 3163 >>3072
I'm glad you like it, anon! The opening animation had me thinking it was going to be a completely different type of show, too. I was like, 'this looks cute but…generic….'
However, I was pleasantly surprised! I felt like the characters had way more realistic relationships with one another than the ones that I usually see in slice of life anime.
Anonymous 08/14/18 (Tue) 04:56:22 AM 3164 >>3163
I love their relationship too, one minute they're like scavengers picking on each other and the next minute they're so happy and supportive. I think it's nice that they showed that girls aren't always perfectly adoring and supportive of their friends and that they also mess with each others.

I started watching Shojo Kageki Revue Starlight. It looked like an average idol anime at first but it's heavily influenced by Takarazuka theater and Utena, so it's been pretty intriguing so far. One of my favorites this season for sure.

I'm in love with the zuka/idol mix. It's funny, I was just wondering if there was a thread about Starlight Revue here and your image was right on the first page. Comfy.
