Hey everyone, I just recently started getting back into watching anime and need some help. I have realized that while I really enjoy watching anime, I find myself extremely picky. I was hoping by listing some anime that I like and some things I don't like, I could get some good suggestions for shows on Crunchyroll.

A few examples of what I like:

Cowboy Bebop
Wolf's Rain
Elfen Lied
Attack on Titan
Black Bullet
Akame ga Kill
Parasyte -the maxim-
No Game No Life
Samurai Champloo


I tend to lean toward mature, graphic and intelligent series. I really try to stay away from anything that is overly focused on "school life" or has hundreds of episodes.

Looking forward to your suggestions :D!

Well you would probably like Zankyou no Terror, Death note, Code Geass, Fate/Zero, Tokyo Ghoul, Mushishi, Guilty Crown, Blue Exorcist, Mirai Nikki, Steins;gate, or Darker than Black.

Ah, I just started Mushishi tonight and that has been great so far. While it is mild, I think the storytelling is outstanding. I will definitely check out your other recommendations even though I don't think they are all on CR. Thank you!

Hi, we have a special thread for requesting recommendations, so if you'd like more than what has already been suggested, please ask in the Recommend Me an Anime thread "stickied" near the top of the Anime forum.

Right now, I'll be closing this thread but I leave you with the recommendation of Flowers of Evil. It's pretty different from the shows you mentioned, and the animation is rotoscope (which a lot of people did not care for), but the story is mature, dark, and intelligent, even though the main characters are high school students (it is not focused on "school life").
