i recommend a anime called Tokyo Ghoul.

The story of Tokyo Ghoul follows Ken Kaneki, a college student who meets a woman named Rize Kamishiro at a coffee shop known as Anteiku. They share an interest in literature and plan a date. While walking Rize home, Ken is attacked by her. Rize reveals that she is a ghoul, a human-like creature that hunts and devours human flesh. As she is about to finish him off, she is crushed by a falling platform. Kaneki is taken to the hospital in critical condition. The doctor decides to transplant Rize's organs into Ken. He then must deal with life as a half-human/half-ghoul, including interacting with ghoul society and its conflicting factions, while striving to keep his identity secret from other humans

Now that's the summary of it from the internet. my summary is just like this it is a badass anime great fights, awesome soundtrack, great character development. PS. the anime did skip quite a bit of the manga after you finish the anime i recommend you read the manga.




Crunchyroll dose not have this anime you can find it on hulu plus.

Season one is 1-12 ep while season two is set to release this january

Recommendations... I guess I'll try to provide a somewhat broad selection:

Samurai 7 - Standard action/adventure type of show. What it lacks in originality, it more than makes up for in its execution.

Sgt. Frog - Action, Comedy, Science Fiction. The dubbed version actually makes the narrator more entertaining to listen to, and even pokes fun at itself once in a while for being in English.

Mawaru Penguindrum - Comedy, Drama, Romance, Tragedy, Psychological, Supernatural, Magical girl. It's an unusual series to follow that effectively balances silliness with seriousness.

Shiki - Supernatural, Horror, Mystery, Fantasy. Strong story with a few truly dark, sometimes even scary moments, and not always by the monsters, either.

GA Geijutsuka Art Design Class - Comedy, Slice of life. It's cute. It's fun. It's sometimes educational. I love listening to the opening.

Kimi ni Todoke - Romantic comedy, Slice of life, Drama. Sweet girl is ignorant of friendship and the happiness that comes with it due to a misunderstanding that relates her to Sadako, the dead girl from the horror move The Ring. The romance aspect of the series feels more authentic than what is commonly seen in anime, and the main character, Sawako, is impossible to hate.

Welcome to the N.H.K. - Comedy, Drama, Romance, Psychological. Heavily praised by numerous reviewers over the years, NHK is a semi-serious series about those who struggle to associate with others and succeed within society.

I agree with Shiki. It is underrated, but there is also Fate/Zero which lives up to the hype.

Hmm I'm probably not the best at recommending anime, but oh well, here goes.

Devil Survivor 2 the animation.

Genre: Action, Drama, Supernatural

Summary: Basically a calamity happens and the main character and his friends are forced to participate in a 7 day survival war to see if humanity is worthy of survival. A mysterious phone app is revealed to have the ability to show your friends "death scene" before it happens effectively providing information to try and avert the death. This same app also gives humanity a way to survive but nothing is set in stone. The true enemy is not so apparent, and sometimes fate is cruel but despite that the survivors must persevere and endure the hardships that come with living even as they watch others die in vain.

Also imo the opening the ending are great, in songs and animation.

I can recommend Watamote (otherwise know as Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui!) although how much you like it will vary. I wrote a review for it on MAL but I'll just copy it here for convenience;


Now I want to preface this by saying I'm not strictly reviewing the series. I find it hard coming from my perspective to be able to objectively rate the show overall. This is because I believe that whether you like or dislike this show heavily depends on how much you can relate to the main character, therefore your mileage my vary.

**The impressions I give do contain some minor spoilers however I do not believe they effect your enjoyment of the show**



The reason I really like Watamote is because it takes a particularly dark and depressing condition and gives it a light-hearted twist. See many people seem to misinterpret Tomoko (the MC) as being introverted, however I have to respectfully disagree. Being introverted does not mean that one is socially inept, as Tomoko is. Instead it means that the introverted person in question is energized by doing things by themselves but are quickly tired when participating in things involving a group. While it can be somewhat true that those who prefer to spend time by themselves are not as socially able as extroverts, it is not the 'default' for an introvert to be bad at conversations or unable to recognize social ques.

As someone who has experience with social anxiety in the past I can tell you that Tomoko most certainly suffers from social anxiety herself based on her actions throughout the series. Indeed her main goal through the show is to have lots of friends and be the interest of all the boys. If she was truly an introvert this would be in conflict with the idea that she wants to be the center of attention and be at the social peak of the high school she goes to. I feel like this needed to be explained because some dislike towards this show comes from people perceiving her as being an introvert and then subsequently stating that her behavior is unrealistic and exaggerated because 'introverts aren't like that'. Your enjoyment of the show will be enhanced if you can recognize that she has social anxiety, she is not introverted.

With that in mind I want to say just how accurately the show depicts social anxiety at it's worst. Tomoko frequently struggles to even say 'Hello' or 'Goodbye' to any of the characters in the show despite them actually being more than willing to interact with her. This really is an accurate representation in my opinion. For someone with social anxiety just saying things as simple as hello and good morning are monumental tasks. Since I can relate to this it is one of the main reasons that Watamote resonates so much with me. See Watamote takes this experience and others like it and utilizes the animation and sound to make it comedic, so that I can sit back and watch this show and laugh at all the unfortunate things that happen to Tomoko. It makes it so I can laugh at my own experiences and that really is relieving. It's nice to see such a condition portrayed in anime and not instantly be depressed by it which is a challenging thing for an anime to achieve and it adds a whole new level of appreciation for me towards Watamote and what it does. On one hand it gives an oddly realistic and mature look into the life of someone with social anxiety while simultaneously parodying it, which is fantastic.

In addition to this I really loved the fact that Watamote did not show Tomoko overcoming her social anxiety. One major criticism held against the show is that it does not have an overarching plot and the status quo that is set in episode 1 is still there by episode 12. While a series being too episodic is a valid complaint with many anime shows in recent years, I feel that Watamote is one of those anime that actually really benefits from being episodic. See social anxiety is not something that can simply be overcome in the period of a school term, shyness maybe, but social anxiety no. I feel like if Watamote had shown serious progression or even Tomoko outright beating her condition then it would have been unrealistic and immersion breaking. So for that I commend Watamote for not going down the idealistic route and instead sticking with the 'status quo' it portrays of Tomokos life. It really adds to my enjoyment of the show on the whole.

Like I mentioned earlier your enjoyment of this show may heavily depend on how much you can relate to the experiences of Tomoko. If you can, then I highly recommend this show for you. If you can't, then you may still like it for its charming animation, good use of sound and quality 'cringe' humor. Equally however you may dislike watching a show that is basically about someone who can never do things right and is constantly messing up because of her warped view on events surrounding her. It's certainly not the best anime out there nor my favorite but to me it really had an emotional impact unlike any other anime I've watched making it worth noting for any anime fan.

So as I mentioned in my introduction, I've enjoyed a lot of Key's animes! Little Busters! and Clannad stand out above them all - so start with those if you want a great experience! They're very emotional - don't know if any of you need to be warned about that before watching!

Others I really enjoyed?

Berserk - I almost hesitate to put this one down. It has some truly dark, horrific stuff in it. Like, I'm not too thrilled with the idea of re-reading/re-watching certain parts horrific... but if you can get through those portions, there are some of the most epic, awesome moments with the protagonist that make the series great.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes - this one I simply must re-watch someday soon. It's around 200+ episodes if you include the Gaiden... but it is so good in terms of how intelligent it is, in detailing the conflict and history of the Free Planets Alliance and The Empire. It makes lots of great parallels with human history, sometimes too-close-to-truth observations on the nature of politics and governments, and manages to have great character development as well. I felt like I was saying goodbye to a whole set of friends when I finished this one.

Darker Than Black - This anime is the one that started it all for me (after DBZ as a kid, of course!). I watched this through with a friend of mine in college, and he had me hooked. This one is an action anime that deals with people who have somehow become something called "contractors". Contractors have special powers they can use at will, but have to "pay a price" for whenever they use them (for example, one guy can control ice/water, but must smoke cigarettes everytime he finishes using his power. He hates cigarettes a lot, therefore, it's his "payment"). It was a great ride for me with some interesting twists!

I'm thinking about starting Aldnoah Zero - that looks good!

Gangsta, hands down, is exactly what you are looking for. The title sounds pretty strange, but if you give it a chance you won't be disappointed! It includes almost all genres. These genres include, action, drama, seinen (kinda dark like Tokyo ghoul) , and romance. I do want to warm you however, the show hole that this anime leaves you with, is quite depressing...
