lololololol Serial Experiments Lain lololololol

Also, try out Dennou Coil.

Both of those shows are concerned with the mind/body or virtual/empirical divide made even more pressing by the creation of the internet.

Hi everyone, I'm looking for some more anime to watch! Ones I recently enjoyed are Sword Art Online and Attack on Titan :)
I like animes with a point... I don't really like slice of life I think.. or things that are too boring and everyday. And I think both the animes mentioned above make me think deep you know? I don't really know how to explain, they both just are really good HELP ME FIND OUT WHAT GENRE I LIKE lol. T-T

I would like newer anime suggestions, because I really look at artwork and I like watching anime in good quality... and the recent ones are usually all super hq and nicely drawn~

Anime I watched and liked recently: SAO, Attack on Titan, Naruto, Detective Conan, Steins;Gate (kindof)
Anime I watched or tried to watch and didn't like: Hyouka, Accel World, Fate/Zero(it was just.. ok.), Bakemonogatari (too. weird)

Sorry I wrote so much, but I really want more suggestions because it's summer and I have nothing to do Thanks in advance!!


If you're looking for a specific genre to like, then you might be interested in the more serious seinen shows, which are typically aimed at 18+ guys, but have a lot of female crossover appeal.

Other seinen shows would be like:
Cowboy Bebop
Hellsing Ultimate
Black Lagoon
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
The Tatami Galaxy
etc... plus what the others have recommended

The idea being that they have more mature storylines, more serious themes, and just a grittier atmosphere in general. They're much more likely to make you think about what you've watched after it's over. Other things that count as seinen are serious romances like Clannad and really fanservicey shows like Highschool DxD. Those aren't really what most people mean by seinen though, they just fall into the same target demographic.

You might like (these aren't necessarily seinen shows, just some "deep" shows that I've seen and liked):
Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Psycho-Pass
Blast of Tempest
Humanity Has Declined
Shin Sekai Yori
Neon Genesis Evangelion (if you can forgive its age)

Also, I'd say to give Bakemonogatari another chance or two. It took about 5 or 6 episodes for it to grow on me, but it's one of my favorites now. Unless you've finished it already, then you know...

Have you seen "K" yet?

Hello, I would like to find some new anime to enjoy, I started to watch Sword Art Online and I do like it but id like to find something alittle more exciting as the mmo aspect cracks me up every so on.

My favorites have been Kenichi and Baki, but i also really love cowboy bebop, db-dbz, fullmetal alchemist. I like martial arts in anime but I also enjoy anything with a futuristic/space feel or science fiction, fantasy, love the comedy as well.

Hope my format was acceptable

I've watched and like all of these shows. I don't really think you can go wrong with any of them.

A Certain Magical Index (and especially its spin-off, A Certain Scientific Railgun) (Hulu or Funi)
-- It's essentially about a sort of unlucky everydude that gets caught up in an underground conflict between psychics (sci-fi) and mages (fantasy), and eventually he starts to find out that he's much more important than he could have imagined beforehand. A Certain Scientific Railgun is the spin-off that follows the coolest character from Index, and focuses mainly on the sci-fi side of things. I think it's better, too.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (Nowhere, legally *cough*)
-- This is the new adaptation of the first 2 arcs of the incredibly influential manga from the 80's. It's a bit silly (okay, it's really silly), but it's so freaking awesome you won't even care. It's got really good artwork, music, and action. It should be mentioned that if you like classic rock, then there is a whole new level of hilarious waiting for you, as the show is just full of shameless references to western music. Also, there should be a new season coming, but nothing official has been announced.

Ben-To (Nowhere, legally)
-- A normal dude goes to buy a half-price bento box, and gets knocked out out of nowhere. One thing leads to another, and he discovers an underground fighting ring revolving around daily battle royales for half-price supermarket bento. It's really stupid but it's really awesome and funny.

Hunter x Hunter (Crunchyroll)
-- This is a shounen long-runner revolving around Gon and three of his friends as they become Hunters (which are like professional awesome-people) to help fulfill each of their respective desires, and to become stronger. What makes this show awesome is that it's more brutal than other shounen shows (even though the atmosphere early on wouldn't tell you that). There's a complete lack of filler and a bunch of good fight scenes going on.

Magi (Crunchyroll)
-- This show follows Aladdin (a Magi, destined to choose the world's great rulers) and Alibaba (a mysterious urchin, chosen by Aladdin to become a great king) as they travel throughout the world finding out different things about themselves and their apparent destinies. It's a shounen long-runner, but it only has about 25 episodes now, but you've got a new season to look forward to. The second ED is full of win.

Try the show Another It's a really good show, no murdering, but death, so it's more of a mysterious death(s) show. Give it 3 episodes, it picks up on the story pretty quickly though but you need to sit through the beginning. Also just as a little tip, I would pay attention to deatil if I were you, might make the show a bit more fun.

Hi ^^
Shows that are of the kind i want more off: Steins Gate, hunter x hunter and death note.

Death note is my absolute favorite so if you know something similar, please recomend it for me ^^

I mostly like series that are thought through, have a smart plot, buildup and surprising outcome or twists in it. escpesially ones that creates goosebumps even without action. I guess genre would be psycological (mind games) and kinda dark. I don't care in humour, quality or ecchi anime, and would be great if the series is alrdy finnished.

Sorry SenseiMinato, another request here..

I don't know if this has been covered yet, but I'll give it a shot anyway:

What anime do you know that places strong emphasis on human behavior and close human relationship? I doesn't necessarily need to be romantic, although I don't mind. Usagi drop is an excellent example of this, as is Tokyo magnitude 8.

I'm searching for something along the lines of:
Usagi drop
Tokyo magnitude 8
Clannad (well, part of it at least)
listen to me girls, I'm your father

I really prefer slice-of-life, but other genre is not a deal breaker :mellow:

Also, please include anime that is not on cr (no links, just names) because I'm sure that I watched most of the anime here that fits the description, (yes, I pay for my anime if I can and companies are willing to take it).

PS: Thanks cr for bringing back usagi drop. It's a really good show.

Kare Kano has already been mentioned, and that's a great option.

The primary theme of The Tatami Galaxy is the subjectivity of inter-personal relationships; thus that show should be exactly what you're looking for, especially if you're willing to sit down with a program for its full run in order to feel its full thematic force.

I'd say Monster fits the bill in a strange way. It's a thriller that follows a Japanese doctor in Germany as he tracks a serial killer for, well, personal reasons. The characters in the show are very closely examined, as you can imagine.

Since it's on crunchyroll, you've probably already seen Kids on the Slope, but, in case you haven't, that show also spends most of its time analyzing the central relationships. It had far more internal monologue than I care for, but I still thought it a worthwhile view, and it certainly fits your description.

For that matter, I'd take a gander at Michiko to Hatchin. It's something of an adventure comedy-drama that takes place in modern South America. The two main characters form a very powerful relationship that's easily the most appealing and interesting aspect of the show.

A Woman Named Fujiko Mine is a show I very highly esteem for its feminist critique (that becomes increasingly apparent the further one journeys into the show), but one of its main highlights is its fascinating main character. For the first time in the Lupin III series, Fujiko Mine takes center stage, and the results are wonderful. Her relationships with the other characters are a treat, and she is herself one of the more interesting characters in anime, in my opinion.

Cross Game is a wonderfully-written anime. It is ostensibly about baseball; ironically, I find that sport dreadfully boring. It is a testament to the characterizations that I stayed with that show for its full fifty episode run; the relationships are drenched in realism and poignance and subtle wit. When the show reveals its foundational emotionality, the tears start flowin', and it works (for me) because the show takes its time with its characters. I highly recommend it.

Finally, I suggest anything done by Takako Shimura - the two shows I have seen (adapted from her Manga) are Aoi Hana and Wandering Son. Wandering Son is on crunchyroll, so I suppose there's a high likelihood you've seen it. If you haven't, I couldn't recommend a show more highly - Wandering Son gaits at a pace too slow for some, but that's in service of some of the most poignant characterizations I have ever glimpsed. The characters are fully-realized, and their crises ring of deep and sometimes bitter truth. Aoi Hana is not so powerful a triumph, in my opinion, but it's still great.

Heh, Cowboy Bebop. Ya know, just in case.
