My anime viewing history is not that great. My entire watched anime would be Naruto, Naruto Shippuden, High School DXD (am not sure of which series),Attack on Titan , Death Note ,No game NO Life, SAO (Season 1) , Knights of Sidonia and that's it , as you can see when you type in good anime to watch in google I am pretty sure this list pops up. I want to expand my viewing base and genre . I am begging/open for suggestions . Ohh! and I tried MAL got some recommendations but I am looking for some recommendation from the community.

Try Magi, Noragami, Soul Eater and if you're into long animes then also One Piece and Fairy Tail.

Personally I'd start with Fairy Tail first so when you finish Fairy Tail, other animes will hype you better.

Planetes .. you will not regret it, an underappreciated gem.

 

If you are done, just ask me another recommendation.

I'd love to recommend you something, but we got no Idea what you like, so it's kind of a shot in the dark. You've listed some anime in the opening post, but not said whether you liked those what you thought of them. Since you are looking for more anime, I assume you liked most of them, but maybe you really hated High School DxD, for example? Also, you mentiond that you want to branch out a bit more, genre-wise. What genre(s) most pique your interest? Romance, Mecha, Drama? A bit more info would make it easier to give you meaningful suggestions.

 

There's something I can tell you, tough: If you've only watched the first season of Knights of Sidonia, you don't need to bother with the second one, the show really falls apart there.

Sorry for not fully explaining  myself. I enjoyed every show listed above, and as for genres under every category "Naruto, Naruto Shippuden, High School DXD (am not sure of which series),Attack on Titan , Death Note ,No game NO Life, SAO (Season 1) , Knights of Sidonia" these fall under. I really enjoyed High School Dxd , even checked put the sequel s .

 

Not having a huge background in anime I found out season 2 of knights of sidonia good . What I really liked is the concept and animation of this show.

Ok, let's see... It seems like you enjoy combat-heavy shows and don't mind Mecha or lewdness. In terms of Mecha, I suppose the go-to recommendation would be Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, a ridiculously over-the-top action series that is also really well animated. Alternatively, you could try Code Geass, which sort of sits in between the mind games of Death Note an and the mecha action of TTGL. For some non-mecha action, you could try out Black Lagoon if you want guns, or Berserk for medieval sword fights. I'm not really into salacious anime, but maybe you'll like Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance. I'd say thematically it is basically a carbon copy of Highschool DxD, even if the fight scenes may not be as polished.

Really? I thought the characters suddenly became so focused on themselves that it got in the way of the narrative. That would've been fine if they had used that time to develop the characters a little more, but by the end of it they were pretty much the way they were from the get-go. Maybe I'm not the ideal person to recommend you stuff :/

I have watched death note and I enjoyed it so much that I revist the the series every year , I even checked out the Japanese drama and the live action English movie as well along with it. I read good things about code geass and just 10 episodes in , it's mind blowingly  awsome , even the intro song.

 

Are you familar with that episode in "how I met your mother" in which the gang points each others annoying habits and glass pane breaks inside their mind. Literally the is going to happen to me the next time I watch knight of sidonia.

      To those new to anime and to those who've watched plenty of anime alike, what decides the type of anime you watch and what factors decide how you rank an anime? This doesn't need to be too complex. It can range from the genre, animation studio, or more specifically; how an anime establishes their characters, how certain common anime tropes are used, the uniqueness of that anime compared to another that may be similar. Open to anyone, what preferences/opinions decide anime for you?
       
      I personally rank anime based off how well an anime separates itself from others as well as how unique the world and story are compared to past works and how specific characters are established to fit the overall story. Nonetheless, my preferred genres are Shounen, Action, Adventure, Romance, Comedy and Psychological. I frown upon anime that overuse common anime tropes that I've consistently seen done, but depending on how that world is established and the characters in it may change my mind otherwise. For instance, the rising of isekai (another world) anime is being over saturated and becoming a cliche plot point to do in anime, but there are still several that separate themselves from the rest that make me feel they were great anime in their own right (Ex. Re:Zero, Sword Art Online, Konosuba, The Devil Is A Part-Timer, No Game No Life, OverLord).

      I'm fairly new, so I haven't had the time to take good look around, but since I haven't seen it talked about much on r/anime or twitter, I just wanted to praise Endro! here.  While at first glance it appears to be nothing more than a moe slice of life that is a cookie cutter show with nothing to offer but cute girls, it has shown itself to be much more. It doesn't take itself seriously nor does it try to force anything as it parodies rpg games. The characters represent common roles in jrpg games while retaining a personality of their own that is far from lackluster, they have traits that separate them from each other without seeming out of place. Without spoiling anything, I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good laugh and a good show to watch.

      I just thought I'd share with you which cartoons I've liked, which cartoons I haven't liked, and which cartoons I plan on watching.  I'd like you to tell me which cartoons you'd recommend to me!  Feel free to "second" the ones on my list, too.  It gives me a better idea of what kinds of cartoons you like.  Keep in mind that while I have watched a handful of anime and adult cartoons, I am generally not interested in them, so there's no need to mention them.
       
      Currently watching:
       
      Dreamworks Dragons I'm finally making some headway again, after a long time of procrastinating and waiting to download the special episode that takes place between the Cartoon Network and Netflix seasons. The Netflix seasons are so much better animated, it isn't even funny. Goes to show you what a little budget will do, huh?  
      Cartoons I've liked*:
       
       
      Honorable Mentions:
       
       
      Cartoons that I plan to watch**:
       
       
      Cartoons I might watch if enough people recommend them:
       
       
      Cartoons on hold:
       
       
      Cartoons that I stopped watching due to a lack of interest:
       
       
      Cartoons that are objectively bad:
       
       
      *List is in approximate order of favorite (top) to least favorite (bottom)

      Bold: Still getting new episodes
      Italic: Uncertain future

      Yo, I'm Kaiten99. I'm somewhat new to Kametsu. I've been a hardcore otaku since my freshman year in high school and am now a sophomore in college. However, I respect anime to a great degree whether I've watched a great anime, average anime, or turned out to be trash. I analyze them in great detail and watch from multiple perspectives I'm looking to connect with some otakus who share the same heartfelt love for anime that I do and share opinions on quality anime, manga, and light novels and maybe make some good friends. I'm not judgmental, just a little social group that talks about anime. I'm also helping my brother make a light novel in the hopes of becoming an anime so detail in your descriptions would be appreciated. I'll literally watch almost any type of anime. Any one interested please lay on me any recommendations you have on anime, manga, or even light novels! Please ask away! Let's start our own group!
