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.

Just watch FMA:B. You'll never regret it. One of my faves, of course.:beauty:

Just finished full metal , going on brotherhood story plot is quite the same . A NOOB asking "What's the difference between the two ?"

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.

      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've been watching the first season from Cartoon Network. The animation is a little rough (most likely due to being on a budget), but I've heard the Netflix seasons are decently animated.  
      Cartoons I've liked*:
       
       
      Honorable Mentions:

      Favourite Mappers
      Professionalbox - tech mapper, Aspire winner - 
      Handsome - unique mapper, kinda gimmicky lots of thematic/conceptual maps - 
      BarkingMadDog - Fun, difficult and clean aesthetics. A lot of his maps are over-mapped high SR for the song. - 7.09*, 7.1*, 5.85*
      Toybot - solid mapper with some interesting GD - 5.68*
      Jounzan - Great concepts and aesthetics, sometimes questionable playability
      honorable mentions, liking some of alonevpk/cyllinius maps as of late
       
      pp mappers
      pretty much nice flow + jump spam
      Monstrata - Triangles... very predictable mapping, he maps to an isometric grid most of the time, optimal spacing, usually easy to acc. Has some cool creative maps though.
      Example maps - 5.14* , 5.63* ,  5.44* , 7.4* has a few guest difficulties.
       
      Sotarks - lots of jump spam. really don't like the majority of his maps though.
      Example maps - 5.3* , 5.79* , 5.95* also has some guest difficulties.
       
      Taeyang - Most of his maps all have intuitive flow and use comfortable patterns, also has some great unranked maps.
      Example maps - 5.72* , 5.76*  also some notable guest difficulties e.g. 4.19*
       
      Kencho - Predictable, easy patterns, lots of jumps, has some nice DT farm maps. 
      Example maps - 5* , 3.75* also has a number of guest difficulties e.g. 4.8* , 5.25*
       
      A r M i N - Newer than most on the list but has some super farmable guest difficulties as of late.
      Example maps - 5.79* , 5.94*
       
      Fycho - Some pretty bad jump spam maps, but honestly one of the better ones on this list has a lot of nice maps too!
      Example maps - 6.1* , 5.71* , 6.24*
       
      There are plenty more pp mappers out there but I don't care to link them all, most modern maps that get ranked are farmable anyways so this list is most likely useless anyways. update spaced streams seem to be super overweighted now
       
       
      Cool Maps
      ranked
      Camellia - d:for the DELTA [Delirium] - map by ProfessionalBox - 5.66* awesome song, quite technical but still very playable, great flow, intuitive yet interesting patterns.

      unranked
      succducc - me & u [thiinggs] - map by Alonevpk - 5.61* song and map gel incredibly well together, split triples section is godly, really unique map one of the best I have played recently (prepare for finger-lock \o/)

      Tips for improving
      Streams
      Start out small and learn early! At first try playing maps with small bursts of notes at a lower bpm range (5 notes is a good place to start). Don't just go crazy and click as fast as you can, make sure you play with the error bar enabled and try and listen to the rhythm as you attempt the burst, the error bar will then show you whether you were too fast or slow and you can then adjust from there. Practice is key here as aim and reading also play a factor as well as shear rhythm/speed capabilities. Once you are comfortable with short bursts of 5-7 notes try playing songs that have extended bursts or small streams around 9-10 notes is a good aim here. Don't be afraid to play with NF on, as the amount of notes increase your evenness over each finger becomes more important so you must be controlled and consistent with your key presses. Once you are comfortable with longer bursts/small streams try playing practice difficulties with larger streams and just practice and work you way up the bpm values, speed is not everything here, finger control is in its own right a far more valuable skill, i.e. streaming 180bpm flawlessly is better than streaming 200bpm by fudging every note. After you get the hang of finger control the next thing you want to look at is reading and aim, these are very unique for streams as the they require a steady flowing motion unlike jumps which require linear bursts of movement, try playing maps that require more motion during streams with variable spacing and tight curves.
       
      Useful Resources
      For bursts (small or long), a lot of maps contain these anyway so I personally never had specific maps for this although there are some targeted at mid/high-level players e.g 7 bursts
      Practice sets - Spreadsheet
      Some slightly more Spaced stuff - 170bpm 6.53* , 160bpm 5.93*
      Crazy aim stuff - 175bpm 7.6*

      Before playing Jump force, how many episodes of an anime should i watch atleast? I've Seen One piece up Until 325 and Naruto (not shippuden) until 198. I've seen the other. The reason I'm asking this because i don't want to see any transformations of the characters before i watch it in actual Anime.
    • By AkihitoSenpai
      Is anyone as hyped up for the next season of Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyoujin). Who is your favorite character in the series?
