I have a lot of friends who don't really appreciate anime for what it is but, anyone starting off usually loves Cowboy Bebop.



It's an interesting story about a group of Bounty Hunter's in the future flying around doing odd jobs and getting into trouble. The beats for the show are great and there's a lot of plot development throughout the series.



 



Another good one for the masses is Black Lagoon. It' a about a group of modern day pirates who operate out of a World War II torpedo boat in Thailand doing drug and people trafficking. Very cool.

Hiya! I'm newbie in the anime world and it is becoming very, very addicting. Would love to some recommendations as I am not to familiar with some of titles. So far I've watched:

Samurai Champloo

Try watching Cowboy Bebop, Outlaw Star, and Black Lagoon.

 

Fruits Baskets

Ouran Highschool Host Club

Aquarion (currently watching and liking it!)

<_<

Try watching Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. It's nothing like any of those, but it was my own gateway anime. If you want something to tickle your funny bone, I'd recommend Gurren Lagann, Desert Punk, and The Irresponsible Captain Tylor. That's my short list, anyway. For more recommendations, just click the link in my sig. ;)

I prefer more serious animes myself. Check out:

  • Steins;Gate
  • Kara no Kyoukai
  • Ghost in the Shell SAC (both seasons + specials)
  • Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki
  • Break Blade
  • Trigun
  • Katanagatari
  • Eden of the East (series + movies)
  • Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
I'm sure everyone has told you to watch the usual Death Note, Code Geass etc. Just thought I'd mention something different for a change.

I definitely recommend Cowboy Bebop which is one of the best... wait let me rephrase that. It is the best anime of all time and I think you should give it a chance.

New..... one thought.   Don't worry just watch every thing.  


Don't actually worry what any one says.  No offence the posters above. 


 


Instead just watch what you can.  Define what you like then search that out instead.  That as a first timer its more fun.

      One type of anime I have always loved are those Big Adventure Types (Hunter x Hunter, Monster Rancher, Sword Art Online, etc)

       

      However I have found not too many of them, if anyone has any recommendations that would be great.

       

      On a side note, I also love Samurai (post war) shows like Rurouni Kenshin, or Samurai Champloo. Anything good in this category would be nice too.

       

      Thanks in Advance.

      Hey guys...I was going to write something like "porn" or "sex" in the title..figured I'd get more views that way but then I thought it would just be removed or something

       

      Anyway, I'm looking for some new series that are more mature..something that has a good story and is aimed at an older audience. Something with action is preferred but I'm generally an all-round kinda guy so I'll watch most things. Shows like Claymore, Cannan, Deadman Wonderland, Deathnote, FMA Brotherhood, etc...

       

      Cheers guys

      Hi folks

       

      I was just wondering about what order to start watching Gintanama? There seems to be several different series..

       

      But most importantly where can I find HQ downloads for this anime?

       

       

      thanks:D

      I remember watching this anime but I cant remember its title nor find it in my lists

      Here some details that I remember:

      - it was supernatural theme with demons and monsters that were born from the contracts  

      - at some point main character got invited out to a forest or a school camp(maybe) in the forest.

      - one of girlfriends of the main character was demon while ?other(s)? were human

      - main character with ?friends? met with student president(who was a demon) in the forest at night to fight a monster and a monster was school presidents 'child' born from the contract (I think that president was on the bike)

      - I may be confusing something with some other anime but main character had trouble at school camp when a storm destroyed a bridge between student side and a teachers side, he and his friends may have been doing something in the forest day before that (it feels similar to a moment from Persona 4 but in P4 there were no demons in the real world)

       

       

      I remember a fight between the monster and somebody or something like that I also remember the conversation about how  monster needed to be killed, but its 'mother' (demon student president) didn't want to kill it, but its 'father' (human who signed the contract) wanted to kill it; like that or the roles may have been reversed.

       

      Its been bugging me as hell two days in the row! I can remember that scene and thats all, so frustrating........

      Any names would be appreciated! 

       

      p.s. its my memories, so if I didn't remember it properly do correct me.

      So recently I discovered a website called AnimeCF. The basic premise of the site is that you type in your MAL username and it spits out what series you will likely enjoy based on your previous ratings. So far it has been quite accurate for myself, so thought it would be nice to share. So far my ratings for shows it recommends have been off by about 0.5 or less.

       

      If you need a more in depth description of how it works, just click here for their info page.
