Would like some reccomendations


Recommended Posts

I find myself downloading a bunch of animé fansubs these days, and I'm wondering what would be good to watch.

I also read the occassional Manga, simply because.

Recently I've downloaded, and watched, every fansubbed episode of Love Hina that I could get my hands on, and I thoroughly enjoyed them.

I think I'm about to do the same with the subbed version of Chobits.

So, post. I need reccomendations.

PS. I've become addicted to some Anime theme songs. It's amazing what J-Pop can do to your head when you've heard enough of it.

Shaman King, DragonBall and InuYasha are good. Personally I think One Piece is ridiculous.

some other good choices:


Tenchi Muyo


CardCaptor Sakura(aka: Card Captors)

Ghost in the Shell


oh my goddess!

Ranma 1/2

Yu Yu Hakusho

whew! I didn't think I'd be able to list that many.

A few good anime movies are:

Princess Mononoke

Vampire Hunter D

This show is hilarious, but doesn't make much sense. Then again how many shows so you know of where the main character dies 10 times in the first episode that does.

"you dont have to be crazy to watch this show, but it helps."

Excell Saga

And another hilarious show that will make Excell Saga look perfectly normal and storyline based:

Puni Puni Poemy

It depends on what you want in your anime. I've never been really big on comedy anime. It's not that it's bad, it's just often too weird for me.

So for comedy anime, listen to other people, though I should probably mention FLCL, since none of them have, and its generally well loved.

Anyway, good stuff that's worth getting your hands on:

Cowboy Bebop


Rurouni Kenshin

Neon Genesis Evangelion




Vampire Hunter D and Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust

Macross and Macross Plus

My personal favorites are in bold.

I'm most open to Comedy (Romantic, Action, and other varients), Action, Historical, Fantasy and Sci-fi.

Romantic Comedy: Onegai Twins ("Please Twins" in English), Chobits (since you have already watched all of Love Hina)

Romantic Action: Sailormoon Sailor Stars (it's Sailormoon Season 5)

Action Comedy: Lupin the 3rd, Trigun (though the last half of the series is incredibly dark and depressing)

Pure Action: Chrono Crusade (though it has a good bit of comedy relief in it, it is very much an action piece),

Historical: Graveyard of the Fireflies

Fantasy: Read or Die (yeah, it's action also, I know)

Sci-Fi: AKIRA!!!, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell: SAC

I will watch Dramatic, Horror, and Thriller, but only if they're reccomended.

Pure Drama: Graveyard of the Fireflies (also), Mobile Police Patlabor

Horror: Hellsing (also a thriller), Berserk, Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge

Thriller: Case Closed (Detective Conan)
