Hello fellow Crunchyroll members,
Hazi here Known as Plazabroski on Crunchyroll,,
I want to know "Whats your Ideal Anime?" meaning what things do you expect in a anime best suited for your eyes?
But please, don't include anything above the 18+ mark please. Don't want the younger members to know...Even if they know already.
Anyways. Fill Free to Enter your responses.


My Ideal Anime will be a Comedy Romance. Anything that makes someone laugh and cry and say AWWWWWW, will be a good anime for me like The Pet Girl of Sakurasou

Something like Zetsuen no Tempest or Fairy Tail. Fantasy + action + bonding relationships.

I think anime like The Pet Girl of Sakurasou is my type of anime I love how its a laugh-out-loud romance, but it can also make me sad and have those really cue moments! I found I also liked Sword Art Online for its relationships between players and is one of those dramas that makes you think what you would do in a similar situation

Something like Hiiro no Kakera. It has a good backstory to it, leading into what happens at present. I like the idea of the tamayori princess and takuma (Has the power of the underworld demon Oni) falling in love. A reincarnation of past events.

I also like anime like fairy tail and hayate no gotaku

STORY STORY STORY.

I'll watch any genre if the story is well written, with good character growth and development. I also enjoy original themes and concepts. I also look for intensity. If there is some lost in translation, I can accept it if the show is intense. And I don't think that looking for quality is asking too much. However I feel as though I have to "sift" through the hundreds of mediocre excuses for anime shows, to find a few good ones. But when you do find a good one they really kick ass!

I'm also a fan of shorter series, and movies. I believe that having a smaller set number of episodes in which to work with, the artists are forced to give us their best, or get lost in the tidal wave of animated things to watch.

Where the girls are cheerless, main character is an aloof pessimistic, evil is brilliant and corrupt.
The characters are all well thought out and developed with great depth. Evil characters aren't evil for the sake of evil, good characters can be good for the sake of being good, though. And at some point, the main character mutters "urasai" during a villains speech and proceeds with slayage.
All that, and every character wears a hoodie at some point, and lots of scenes in the rain.

Whoa! That sounds pretty scary. I'm messed up, aren't I?

But, anyways...
Anime like Steins;Gate, Code Geass, Clannad, Darker than Black, and 1st half of Sword Art Online. Seinen-(like) stories is what I like.

For me it has to have a bit of romance, action/adventure and comedy that has me in tears. A mixture of one piece and kenichi and ouran high host club.

I watch almost every kinda anime out there but i must say my favorite is something with intense action dark themes and well developed charecters sometimes the story might suck but if i really really love a certain protagonist or even antagonist for that matter i will enjoy it.

This is a tricky question, but a good one. I like so many genres. But my ideal Anime would have to do with Fantasy/Myth/Religious. Something like Fate Zero, Highschool DxD (Devils and Angels etc.). Good character building and a good well thought out story to it. Amazing artwork like Fate Zero is a plus.

Essentially, what I expect most out of an anime is balance; balance between character development, story-telling, action, emotion, etc., etc.
Something like that just seems to really appeal to me, and it could appeal to many people. Would an anime like that appeal to everyone?
Hell no, nothing can; but at least a show like that could come really damn close to, what with how well-structured it would be as a result.
My personal best example of a show like this is Fullmetal Alchemist: Broth--
*BBBBBBOOOOOOOOOOOOO*
Alright, alright, I admit, I really do kick this horse dead, but it's still a good example! Brotherhood had great, growing characters, a multi-layered, well-told story, and action that, while not necessarily flashy, had drama to them, which is more than you can say about a show like Devil May Cry.

I SAID THE SHOW!

Bottom line, the more balanced an anime is, the better......well, in my opinion.

I've really gotten into anime recently (like, in the last five months) because a lot of anime is willing to embrace not just surrealism, but subjectivity in general, in a way a lot of Western shows (Louie aside) just aren't willing to do, tethered as they are to realism.

Thus, for me, my favorite animes aren't connected by genre, but by willing to experiment with form and frame in the service of illustrating themes or characters. Shows like Kare Kano, Serial Experiments Lain, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and Bakemonogatari are examples of what I'm talking about. Those shows don't just thought-provoking characters or themes; they are, down to the frame, fascinating.

anything with good characters, character interaction, and story. I said it before in a similar thread, if Tales of Vesperia were an anime, it would be the perfect anime, in my opinion. also, if SAO had actually been like the novels, it also would have been perfect. or at least near perfect. but it also would have been twice as long.
