Big Adventure Recommendation?

Recommended Posts

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.

Most of these should fit into that category.


 


One Piece


Fairy Tail


Log Horizon


Bobobo


Both the new and old Hunter x Hunter and all the OVAs if you havent seen them yet.


 


Also for samurai anime, maybe try Shigurui Death Frenzy.

Aside from the ones already listed, >>

Magi; the kingdom of magic, is kind of adventure? I enjoyed it. (watching the currently airing season 2, still enjoying it)

FMA; Brotherhood, it's kind of adventure, again. ahah.

MÄR, that's an adventure one! (new world to explore yayay)

Dog Days, same as above. (new world and all)

Then there's the oldies that I used to watch as a kid. a bit childish, but they're definitely 'adventure'.

Pokemon

Digimon

Inuyasha

Glad to know you liked it! :3
Since you liked, Dog Days. You might like to know that there's also Dog Days' out. (dog days 2). It has also been announced that there will be a Dog Days 3, but no airing date has been given.

Anyway, glad I could help in some way! -^__^-

Nice thread I have been looking for some new adventure anime. I see Sword Art Online was mentioned, I liked that one. Does anyone know anymore like it? Adventure, Virtual World kind of thing.

Log Horizon is what you're looking for! Persona 4 - The animation and Accel World might also fit in your criteria.

Those are the only ones that come straight to mind, though.

I have seen Accel World but not the other two. Thanks for the recommendation will definitely check them out!

Finished watching MAR, it was pretty good, not as much as Dog Days but still good. Tried to watch Shigurui Death Frenzy but just could not get into it. Recently started looking at space westerns like Cowboy Beebop. I am watching Bones right now but then I am gonna give "Magi; The Kingdom of Magic" a try.

Sorry! Just realized I gave you the wrong one. You want:

Magi; The Labyrinth of Magic

 

Magi; The Kingdom of Magic is the second season. (Sorry!)

12 Kingdoms, about a girl in modern japan who ends up in an alternate world based on feudal china with magic and monsters. Has a good story and I think it fits the big adventure idea fairly well.


 


Slayers, take any season and it will fall into the big adventure category, but it is a bit dated. Comedy, fantasy, and action, and a fairly good overall plot in spite of the goofy antics.


 


Spice and Wolf, this is not an action series but it is a big adventure, where a merchant teams up with a local wolf deity to help her get back to her home land. Good story and excellent presentation, and it has its bits of thrills and dangers in spite of the lack of action and fighting.


 


Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, This is a tragic romance series related to xxxHolic and Card Captor Sakura, but is nothing like either series beyond that the original comic books were all tied together. Without giving away the story, it involves a group of companions traveling from alternate world to alternate world on a long journey to save princess sakura. Has plenty of action and comedy, and a bit of drama (its not overemphasized but its always there). Edit: Oh yeah, I should warn you, it starts breaking down a bit in the second season, and the series ends without any real resolution.


 


Basilisk, its dark and bloody and about 2 ninja clans fighting a secret war. If romeo and juliet were to meet hamlet in an anime, this would be it, and I would say it meets the big adventure requirements if memory serves.


 


Unfortunately that's all I can think of off the top of my head that involve big adventures rather than having everyone stay in a specific area with a familiar setting. There are always the large mainstream series like Inuyasha of course, and technically if you think about it, pokemon, but with some of them it varies from season to season as to weather there is a big adventure.

      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.
