When i say RL-based, i mean what anime is your favorite that does not involve unrealistic situations, like mid-air-screaming-constippation-power-ups or having-demons-give-you-power-from-your-belly-button?

We've all seen tons of anime with superhuman abilities (which i love btw) but at the same time, i want to see more anime that's a tad bit more on the realistic side.

_____________________________


My fav's right now are:
-Bartender = States actual cocktail mixes, gives you history behind them, but unless you're really into the storyline, it's quite boring. (I loved every second of it but my friends have found paint drying a lot more entertaining).

-Confidential Confessions = A series devoted to the dark-side of human nature particularly in japan. Rape, Peer Pressure, Drugs, Pedophiles, Blackmail/Extortion, Sexual Harassment, it's all there and it gets peoples' blood boiling because not all the stories have a happy ending. A great wakeup call in my opinion.

-Strawberry Panic! = Shoujo-Ai/Descriptive romance makes me happy.

Hajime no Ippo - Its the story of a guy who often gets bullied, but one day a boxer saves him and he decidesto get into boxing himself.

Histoy's Strongest Disciple Kenichi - Dunno if this can count as a realistic anime, but its about a boy who has always wanted to get into martial arts but when he joined the karate club at school, he was simply their to get beaten up. That was until he met Myu who told him about a special dojo.

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien - If your up for a sad story, you could watch this.

Genshiken - Kinda random, its an anime about Otaku in university and what they do in their club

A few nice little romance/drama anime:
Lamune
REC (very short but i loved the story)
Suzuka
Yoake Mae Yori Ruri Iro Na ~Crescent Love~

I think this goes to unreal category. His masters are monsters.


yea, thats what i was thinking... but appart from that, Kenichi isnt that over-powered and you don't see his masters fight that much.

So that means, Kenichi is the only realistic one? ROFL


lol yea you can say that

Myu obviously can't be realistic, Niijima i wouldn't even consider. Probably some of the "bad guys" are realistic.
