Hi everyone!

It's been a while since I've watched and completed an anime. I recently finished Mushishi the second season and it was just as wonderful as the first season was years ago and now I am really excited to watch more anime, I just don't what to watch.

The four anime I've recently watched and finished are:

Mushishi
Nodame Cantabile (All the seasons.)
Chōyaku Hyakunin Isshu: Uta Koi
Shin Sekai Yori

The anime I've enjoyed in the past are:

FMA
FMA: Brotherhood
Baccano!
Durarara!! (Not sure if I want to watch the second right now since I feel like I have to rewatch the first first.)
Arakawa Under the Bridge (First and second seasons.)
Eden of the East (The movies too.)
FLCL
House of Five Leaves
Peguindrum

I just really want to enjoy an anime, one that could even maybe bring me to tears or have gasping throughout (like Mushishi). I've been thinking about watching Legend of the Galactic Heroes, but I'm not sure how to start it.

Oh and here's my ANN list of seen anime: List

I highly recommend Boku no Pico. It's the pinnacle of anime itself...

I've seen 5 centimeters, House of Five Leaves, and Time of Eve and thoroughly enjoyed them. I'm reading Monoke, Natsume, and Barakamon and dropped Usagi Drop. Anohana is in my to watch list so I might give it a try and Hell Girl looks interesting.

As for Boku no Pico, I'm not really looking for hentai right now, maybe later. Also if I was, Crunchyroll wouldn't be where I would ask.

Watch Clannad, if you want some feels. First season is good, second season is brilliant. (On Hulu)

Trigun is an action/sci-fi in the mode of many of the things on your list, and is a classic for a reason. (On Hulu and Netflix)

If you liked Eureka Seven, try Gargantia of the Vererous Planet. It's much shorter, but a similar mix of mech action with good romance and character development. (Here on CR or on Hulu)

The Monogatari Series (starts with Bakemonogatari) is a great mix of psychological drama and romance, with a bit of horror thrown in. It's also got an off-beat sense of humor, which it seems you might appreciate. (On Hulu; all but the last few episodes of the first season is on CR.)

Barakamon and Usagi Drop are both great, slower paced slice-of-life stories. They are easy watching and will make you feel good. (Barakmon is on Hulu, Usagi Drop (AKA Bunny Drop) is on Hulu or CR).

I noticed you Watched Rurouni Kenshin OVA, but not the regular series, I would suggest that right off the bat. Then go find the live action adaptation and get your mind blown at how awesome it is.

Trigun is also a really good action comedy.

I got bored of straight up action anime, so I've been watching romantic comedies recently, and some of them are really funny, and if you want some feelings, they work pretty well in that regard, too.

My Romantic Comedy Snafu is hilarious, and not much of a romantic comedy really.

Love, Chunibyo and other delusions is a really great romantic comedy, the first half of the season will have you laughing your ass off, the second will have you in tears.

Say I love You and Timi no Todoke are also really good, and actually pretty similar. The female leads in this shows are likable and goofy as hell.

I'd also suggest Sword Art Online if you haven't seen it. Some people don't like it because it kind of switches gears mid season, but the male lead is kind of a badass, and the action scenes are pretty awesome.

And as someone else mentioned, Bakemonogatari is really weird but amazing, even though the male lead has some weird fetish with feeling up little girls and his sister.

I don't usually watch the anime of a manga that I read unless it's brilliant like FMA: Brotherhood so I probably won't give Say I Love You, Kimi ni Todoke, Barakamon, and Rurouni Kenshin a try. Not sure I want to watch Usagi Drop because of the Tales of Genji feels I get from it.

I totally forgot about Trigun and will definitely watch that especially since it's on Hulu.

As for Clannad, I hear so many good things about it, but dammit I'm a bit scared to try it because don't want to cry so much that I need a tissue box next to me.

I'm definitely not going to watch SAO, the concept is interesting if a bit overdone I just don't like Kirito and Asuna that much.

I watched a few of the first few episodes of Bakemonogatari a long time ago and couldn't get into it, but I will definitely give it another try.

Thanks everyone.

If you liked Voice of a Distant Star and Eden of the East you may like The Princess and the Pilot (the movie here on Crunchy) and it's series sequel The Pilot's Love Song (also here on Crunchy). Another fun series here is Galilei Donna.
