I'm looking for a witty anime. Something that the audience usually doesn't predict or at least has a character that's extremely intelligent and shows it off. Lelouch for example. Mastermind that whips out things the viewer doesn't see coming in his plans.
Or Kanzaki Urumi from GTO. Or Yuno from Mirai Nikki.

Death Note (I have a feeling you've already seen it though, lol)
Legend of the Galactic Heroes http://myanimelist.net/anime/820/Legend_of_the_Galactic_Heroes
Un-go

Hopefully, someone can give u more recommendations just in case.


Haven't seen Galactic heroes or Un-go. Un-go looks interesting, and I'll take up your recommendation. Thank you for your help.

I'd recommend Last Exile - the one about airships and countries at war. Very involving and epic.

Also check out Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040. I'd definitely classify that as an anime where you won't be able to figure out where it's going after a few episodes. Or maybe you will but the ride is very exciting nonetheless.

Both of those series are easily available via low-priced classics box sets.

There is a habit of people when they are recommending series for them to go for obscure series or ones that may not be immediately obvious. Since you mentioned you were somewhat new to anime, I'd like to personally recommend a series that I've used to convert several of my fellow anime-virgins, Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood. 64 episodes of action/romance/horror/epic war/comedy/magic/conspiracy. It's truly blissful and amazing to watch especially if you get the blu ray or have a way to watch it in hi def.

I've seen many people ask about what is a good horror anime and I haven't seen anyone mention Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack, so I'll offer my personal recommendation to that :)

I read the manga way back in college in 2004 after learning that the creator, Junji Ito also wrote the manga Uzumaki, from which the seminal horror movie is based off of. Gyo the movie is a short 70 minute well-animated horror anime that I make a point to show people when I really want to give them awful nightmares for the next few days. Once you think you know what it's about, it throws curve ball after curve ball your way, until all you can do is sit back and marvel at the sheer insanity unfolding before you.

I recommend it!

Er... who are u replying to in these posts? When giving recommendations in this thread, it's basically a-must to "quote" the user so everyone knows who u are speaking to and recommending those animes to. Also, as AnimeKami had pointed out, it's generally a good idea to use the edit button if u have other things to add onto your last post, as it's a bad idea to have consecutive posts.

Anyway, thx for the recommendations!

Generally the more well known animes are more likely already seen by the person. So by naming the more obscure but still awesome animes it increases the chance that they haven't seen it.

Well yes that's a fair point. My point is that - and I think everyone does this - when a newbie asks what series or movie they should watch it's habit to point out the (relatively) obscure titles. The Gurren Laggans, the Azumanga Daiohs, etc. On that note, how often do you find yourself recommending Akira? Or My Neighbor Totoro?

I recently had a conversation with a step-sibling about this sort of thing after she expressed an interest in anime. I was watching Eden of the East (the crisp-looking blu ray version), which I loved warts and all, at the time. So yeah, my initial instinct was to say 'by all means, start with Eden of the East, then watch Macross Frontier, then Fate Zero and then Serial Experiments Lain' but then I held back and realized that in that case it may be better to start with the indisputable greats of anime. Just to expose their minds to just what anime can achieve. FMA Brotherhood is one of those rare occurrences where budget meets creative freedom and births a long, engrossing, ejaculatory series. To a young person this day and age, I imagine that the experience of watching no anime whatsoever until FMAB would be like my first experience with anime, Neon Genesis Evangelion back around 1997.

Me personally? I've seen FMAB and loved it. And I've since moved on. It wasn't my first anime so it didn't have that "first high" effect. Currently I'm watching Penguindrum and loving every psychotic minute of it. I have comparatively few friends who would respond positively to Penguindrum as a first experience with anime, I think, at least without proper preparation. I think a frame of reference for the magical girl anime would be necessary, and the tropes including the gratuitous magic costume changes, magical catch-phrases, and shameless cosplay fodder would have to be explained. But of those people who may otherwise be skeptical of Penguindrum? None of them could possibly hate My Neighbor Totoro. Show me someone who hates My Neighbor Totoro and I'll show you someone who hates life. But seriously..

..sorry for rambling. Introducing people to things I love is something I'm passionate about. People's - at least those who become lifelong anime fans - first experience with anime is often extremely memorable. I had the good fortune to watch Princess Mononoke at our sleepy town art house theater with a packed audience on a Friday night in 1999, and the audience ate it up. It was a joyous experience, and one I hope others can have themselves.

Does Anyone know any great anime dealing comedy and action.
Shows like this would be awesome: Reborn, Hayate no Gotoku, Ixion Saga, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
Shows that bring me to laughter please.
I would greatly appreciate it.
