I really am not sure there is a thread like this. There are a few "I hate Naruto" threads, but this is a thread to tell Naruto/Bleach fans to stop bitching about licensing. There is more than just Shuffle, Hitman Reborn, and Gintama (YA RLY! THERE IS MORE!) There are more than just tasteless HAREM/Ecchi shows that give tons of fanservice. There is tons of anime out there that you CAN actually enjoy that will refill that whole in your head filled with just Naruto/Bleach and all those licensed anime.

Here are options:
Watch Dramas/Movies
Read Manga
Watch Anime


Watch Dramas/Non-anime Movies(they barely get licensed)


You guys may think "oh these are just girly shows with just tons of female fanservice, and tosn of guys that look like boobless dickgirls that these girls fall for". This is partly true, yet.. not 100%. There are non-girly dramas out there for guys to watch. And some girly ones that even guys can enjoy. (Same goes for movies.)

I recommend:

One Litre of Tears
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-521/One-litre-of-Tears.html

Girls gets disease... disabling her.. blah blah blah. Read the description in the damn link. You may go "not another disease show", but truthfully this show got me crying one litres for really real. Has a pretty girl guys may fall for (the main girl) and a guy you may fall for (the main guy.) If you can see this drama is recommended by an ARMY of mods. Obviously this must be some good shit.

Even though you may love Ryo and Erika for their acting: DO NOT LISTEN TO THEIR MUSIC. For Ryo he works for NewS (boyband with pure fanservice, and very shitty music. Popular, and crappy), Erika (I think she's a bitch RL, and her music sucks.) At least you can love the acting.


(This is ON Crunchyroll)




Crying Out Love, In The Center of the World
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-1451/Crying-Out-Love-In-The-Center-of-the-World.html

34 year old guy.. hasn't gotten over his lover for when he was 17 years old (17 years later he still isn't over her.) Girl with similar name aids him, since the guy is a just a wreck (the obvious happens later on.) 17 year old lover of his dies, and you go into their past seeing the events of their teenage life. Now, obviously she dies.. but it's agonizing as hell to know that she dies.. because you think she's such a cute/nice/pretty character. Episodes go on and it gives a "No don't do it" feeling. Until she eventually dies. Good drama, but agonizing to watch T.T.

(THIS IS NOT ON Crunchyroll, it's licensed buy the DVD's... I doubt they are dubbed, most likely come with subs. Or find them "some other way". Trust me if you buy it, it'll be well damn worth it.)

Tatta Hitotsu no Koi
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-1510/Tatta-Hitotsu-no-Koi.html

Poor guy falls for rich girl. "He's dirt poor" drama and all that shit. But you get Ayase Haruka and Kame. Sounds like a unoriginal drama.. but it's sweet.. and Ayase's character is so cute. (BTW she is the girl from Crying out love)

This is on Crunchyroll.

Nobuta wo Produce
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-511/Nobuta-wo-Produce.html

Appearing is Ryo, Maki.... and YAMAPI!! OMG OMG HE SO HAWT! /sarcasm
Ryo and Yamapi are in boybands, don't listen to their music. They sucks, I'm not saying this just because I'm a guy. Emo girl... 2 guys.... they try to make her non-emo. Obviously the obvious happens.. but it's sweet. Good stuff...

This is on Crunchyroll.

Kurosagi
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-585/Kurosagi.html

YamaPi is angry :(. He was swindled and now he gets revenge. But Maki is like "Hey brudda dat ain't right", but YamaPi is so teenage "cool" and is like "wuteva mom! GOSH I do wut i wunt betch". And.. he swindles.. I'm not sure if I like this much anymore... oh wel lyou might enjoy it.

This is not on Crunchyroll due to licensing. Buy the DVD's or find "some other way".

This is the cut from shows with tons of young people. But I recommend you go on and watch these.

Dr. Koto's Clinic
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-2505/Dr-Kotos-Clinic.html

Goto moves to an island as a doctor. He's nice happy and does a fucking good job. But nobody wants the doctor, because of sad incidents with others. But he is determined to fight on. REALLY REALLY sweet drama.. Has a sequel.. that hasn't been subbed yet.

Not on CR, find it "another way".

Great Teacher Onizuka

This is a classic, one GUYS CAN BE SURE TO ENJOY. Comedy... Teacher.. Teacher is a good teacher. He teaches in odd ways, watches porn in the teachers lounge. But gets his job done and teaches kids good life lessons. Some people disagree, but he still does it anyways. Onizuka also tries to win the heart of a girl <3 rawr... (they actually married in real life.. and didn't divorce.. yeah... somehow these celebs didn't divorce in the first 2 months!) Really good stuff here. Also has an anime which is also said to be nice. It's a classic! GTO has a special and a movie. They're all pretty nice.

This is on CR
Long Love Letter
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-1234/Long-Love-Letter.html

As much as this show seems like a total love story... it's not... It's actually Sci-Fi drama... Romance does happen but it's mainly "survival". And stuff.. ending is confusing. This is one GUYS sure would/could enjoy (this doesn't mean you won't enjoy the others) There is a manga for this.. which I haven't got to reading. It's also called the Drifting Classroom. So... yeah.

THIS IS ON CR

Live Movies:

Hana-bi - Movie
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-5310/Hana-bi-Movie.html

Nishi is a cop whose wife is slowly dying of Leukemia. One of his partners gets shot on the job and is confined to a wheel chair for the rest of his life and becomes suicidal. Nishi, feeling guilt over his partners accident, tries to help him in any way he can. At the same time, Nishi leaves the police force to spend more time with his dying wife. However, in order to do the right things for those he loves, Nishi must do wrong things. Spiraling deeper into desperation and slowly building up to tragedy. --imdb.com

Epic action and amazingly sweet love story.. Shit is the best. The main guy = the director. The director = amazing. HIGHLY recommended, also soundtrack is awesome too.

THIS is on CR

Voice
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-8172/Whispering-Corridors-IV-Movie.html

OH SHIT! THIS BE KOREAN! Girl dies.. she's like "Wtf!?" and she's a ghost.. her friend can hear... they try to find out what happened. Creepy shit happens... hmm.. how long will this friendship last? "horror" but it's not so scary.. still good.

On CR

Reincarnation
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-2429/Reincarnation-Movie.html

In 1970 eleven murders occur at a certain hotel in Gunma prefecture including the murder of a young girl. With his motives still unknown, the murderer himself then meets a mysterious death.

35 years later a new string of dissappearances are shocking the people of Japan and the only thing linking each dissappearance is that the victims are all under 35.

Could it be that each of the disappearing people are the reincarnation of people who died at the hotel? And if each of them is headed back to the hotel, could it be that the events at the hotel are still ongoing?


Basically the italics. BTW... I'd like to help you guys here. "Together Forever" isn't hard to understand, take it literally. And you should not be confused.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Read Manga: "It doesn't move!! It musn't be good!", wrong.


Gantz
http://www.crunchyroll.com/showmanga?id=112
http://www.onemanga.com/Gantz/ (preferred)

Action and survival. Moments that make you go "WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT!?" and "WHY THE HELL DID THAT DUMB ASS DO THAT!?"... yeah it shows you idiots and somewhat smart people trying to survive. Gets really graphic, has nudity... sex (not hentai.. just close to it.) and licking a dick through the undies... but the main part is the amazing survival of these people, and their deaths. Good stuff.. has an anime.. but manga is good shit. Plus Gantz anime is not on CR.

On-going and on CR (for now), and I prefer you use Onemanga. Good shit!

20th Century Boys/21st Century Boys
http://www.onemanga.com/20th_Century_Boys/
http://www.onemanga.com/21st_Century_Boys/

Basically a manga where a guy named "Friend" is taking over the world. Kenji is normal guy.. who realizes his being and all these events that occur has a link to his childhood. Find out who exactly is "Friend". What are his motives? This one is amazing... phew.. it IS good stuff and is expecting a live-action movie. Epic.


On CR and FINISHED. Remember I prefer you use Onemanga than CR!

NANA Manga
http://www.onemanga.com/Nana/
Nana meets NANA. One is a girl who can't stop falling in love (some say she's a slut.. but ey.. I don't think she's a slut) and other is rocker famous girl to be. Has an anime not on CR (expecting it's second season after manga finishes it's arc.. or finishes completely. It's not on CR.) Manga is on CR but you know what.. CR manga sucks. It's licensed and you CAN find it in book stores if you want hard copies. It'll be worth the money.

Use Onemanga instead of CR

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Watch Other Anime:
Reideen
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-2464/Reideen.html

Guy become chosen one. He has to pilot a legendary mecha.. action isn't fast or anything.. first few episodes are bleh. But slowly the thing gets better and better. This anime is similar to RahXephon due to the fact that show took aspects of the original Reideen on it's anime (hint: This Reideen is a remake.) The ending is nice, not the greatest.. but middle episodes are awesome.

This is on Crunchyroll

Serial Expiriments Lain
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-120/Serial-Experiments-Lain.html

Lain is a slow ditsy girl.. who recently experiences some odd situations. A girl commits suicide, and yea.. you know what read this instead.

The first episode opens with the mysterious suicide of a high-school girl, Chisa Yomoda. Chisa-chan was a classmate of Lain Iwakura, a quiet, 14-year-old high-school girl. One of the other girls in the class has been receiving e-mail messages from Chisa-chan, and Lain discovers she also has mail from Chisa-chan. In the mail she explains to Lain that she just abandoned her flesh. She assures lain that she still is alive in the 'wired' world. After getting a new 'navi' and adding a 'psyche' circuit, Lain spends more and more time in the wired. It seems that Lain has at least 2 personalities, and Lain's first personality is changing even now. Who is lain? Who are the 'knights'? Can the wired influence the real world with a prophecy? Is the real world nothing but a hologram of the information in the wired?

Old show, but really nice artwork.. I say it's better than the new ultra bright annoying anime colors... Good story.. yeah... Not like mainstream anime.

On CR

Denno Coil
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-3679/Denno-Coil.html

The story takes place in the fictional Daikoku City. It follows a group of children as they use illegal AR visors called Dennou Mégané "computer spectacles" to unravel the mysteries of their half real, half Internet environment. The world displayed in the internet-connected visors contains games, virtual pets, and also internet viruses. The children interact with and reshape the digital landscape with the help of software tools.

It's like a sweet story at the start.. but this sweet story.. goes bad later on. Still it is somewhat of kid friendly... but awesome.

On CR

Higurashi no Naku Kori ni/Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-70/Higurashi-no-Naku-Koro-ni.html
http://www.crunchyroll.com/series-4930/Higurashi-no-Naku-Koro-ni-Kai.html

Scary shit happens... then we travel to a different version of the old story.. then on and on. Learn new things... hear old things again. Go "Wtf?"... Kai isn't as gorey or anything.. it's more "finding out". I was disappointed in it.. but maybe it'll redeem itself. First season is great, second is good. Third season to come, will it kill itself? Maybe...

On CR (for now), licensed and has DVD's I think it has subs. Plus a dub with good voices and bad ones.

OK, I'm too lazy now. Read my favorites watch them at your own risk.. some aren't masterfully good storylines but I enjoyed them for reasons. Some of you may not like them. There you go CR.... There you go. Hope this isn't a duplicate. Just so you guys know there are other GOOD action shows out there, don't just watch Naruto/Bleach and 1000 Harems/Ecchi shows and say Naruto/Bleach is the best. This isn't meant to be a favorite threads.. it's to tell you there is more out there children... NOW STOP BITCHING ABOUT GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK! Thank you :)

Should've put this in the anime section... oh well.. I don't give much of a fuck.

Don't care about Dramas, and I agree that Narutards should STFU, and just find something new.

P.S: Naruto, and Bleach suck.

If only that actually happened. Plus this isn't a just a recommend me thread.. it's a "Shut the fuck up and read the recommendations" thread. Different :), this may also be another thread talking about the licensing. But this one isn't about "AHA YOUR SHOW GOT LICENSED".. although I do lol at it. But I want people to shut up.

Wow, the effort and contribution to CR is undeniable. I may stop using CR for top-hits anime, but i won't get fire up over that. But anyway, thanks for reminding me there are still tons of jdorama that i can catch in CR.

The "watch now" category at netflix has "Air Gear" it looks like they are putting in a lot more anime, starting with "A".

I do not work for netflix, lol. I just think that sort of service is great to view licensed anime while giving money back to the creators. I just wish they would release things a bit sooner sometimes, sigh.

I watch Naruto and Bleach and other Animes of course.. I've never bitched about it.. this just seems like a huge waste of time.. I mean most of the people who do bitch about it just get flamed and shit from other people so I think they should know when to keep their mouth shut...

well w.e I'm bored.. I'd say this thread might have a use... or maybe not..

edited : color and underline :lol:
