Black Lagoon and Psycho-Pass. They seemed like shows I'd enjoy, and they wound up in my top 5.

Jeez, I also have to say brotherhood. I was looking to try my first anime a few years ago, and somehow picked FMA:B. It was just such a great adventure.

Also, NANA. I heard some good things about the story, and I really got sucked in. I loved the "grown-up" vibe that much of the show had.

Attack on Titan. Nobody would stop talking about how good it was, they would rave about the animation and the characters and the fighting and everything. When it came out I hadn't watched anime for years, but I heard a lot about it and it was on netflix and I was bored one day, so I decided to give it a shot..and it was better than they said it was. I really, really love this series. It was good enough to remind me why I love anime and bring me back to experience all these great new shows coming out these days.

Psycho Pass: I didn't know too much about this show going in, but people said it was INCREDIBLE and that it would ruin me. Well it was, and it did. That show really messed me up, but it also made me think. The characters were super likable and easy to relate to, and it was hard for me to predict what was going to happen next. The last few episodes were like a roller coaster ride.

Hunter x Hunter!


I instantly fell in love with it and it became my favorite anime! And Gon and Killua are two of my all time favorite anime characters now! ^-^

Mine would have to be Log Horizon, I was pretty hyped for it when I was reading up on it and when I finally watched it; I was just overall blown away.

Sure like all anime's there's some minor flaws but overall it's an amazing anime.

White Album 2

I loved the VN so I expected a good adaptation, but it wasn't good. It was great.

Fate/Stay Night, I like the Visual Novel and I like the anime even more. All of the characters were well-rounded and had depth. Plus it had incredible substance and even successfully combined all of the routes while still keeping it original in an amazing way. Plus a lot of tear jerkers regarding Archer, Illya and near the end Saber.

Fate.Zero on the other hand could use a lot of work, enough said.

I highly reccomend watching FSN and skipping zero .

I really liked Fate/Zero. I think it is definitely worth watching. Now, I haven't read (watched?) the visual novel nor have I watched the first FS/N anime. Every time I look at it I'm just put off by the fact that there's going to be teenage angst and romance and that everyone says it's different than F/Z. I liked the fact that F/Z was more about adult characters.

Now you see your reasons for not wanting to watch it make sense. Because it is in fact about romance (albeit a tragic one) and angst. Although not teenage angst but rather fantasy/action angst. I personally like myself some angsty/emotional anime. But I still think zero's only worth watching if you prefer style over and substance and realize it's not a real prequel to FSN since Nasu never approved. If you really wanna get an accurate idea of what happened in the events before FSN, I'd say play the Visual Novel.

But yeah it is different from zero as it actually focuses on it's characters depth and story rather than just looking cool.

One Piece and Hunter x Hunter for sure. I always used to think they were just typical long-ass fighting animes, but nooooo, they are super amazing.

Akame Ga Kill

My friends kept talking about it and I just kept seeing the cover art for it on Crunchy Roll.

I decided to give it a shot and now it's one of my FAVORITE shows!!

I thought Kiritsugu had a good bit of depth. It went into how he formed his philosophy and showed the flaws in it. I really liked that exploration of 'ends justify the means' and pragmatism.
Some of the characters were a bit flat, but that was either side characters or ones that sort of had to be flat (e.g., Berserker).

Attack on Titan. Great characters, outstanding comic-like animation, and great storyline. At first I tought this was going to be an ordinary anime, with a male protagonist with superpowers, but AoT went beyond that point.

i think people are misunderstanding the point of this post, ANIMES THAT EXCEDED HIGH EXPECTATIONS

not animes you liked or animes that are great

for me, Akame ga Kill, since the manga is amazing and they are doing a perfect animation
