I am pretty new to anime. I really enjoyed the really funny ones like Slamdunk, GTO, and the thought provoking/ messed up ones like Parasyte and Attack on Titan.

I have no idea how to find shows similar to the ones I've liked. I tried to just randomly watch stuff... but not having much luck.So if any of you have suggestions,please let me know! Thanks!

Can't say I've seen any of the shows you mentioned, except for AoT, but if you're looking for a good anime to get into, I'd definitely recommend Gintama. It's a (mostly) comedy anime based in Edo era Japan (samurai era), but has been invaded by aliens. Sounds like a weird anime when written like that, but it's really good if you like comedy and action. Style of humour is usually 4th wall-breaking, parodies other anime, adult jokes, and just absolute randomness. Just got its 7th season premiere a few days ago actually (though Crunchyroll is for some reason listing it as Season 3).

I'd also recommend (though not quite as highly), Gurren Lagann. Really good mecha anime that doesn't hold anything back. Lots of comedy and action.

Hope this helps

Hi and welcome. I'll leave recommendations to others, but since there are two of this same topic started by you I'm closing this one (and leaving the other since it has more responses and it's got a more specific title.)
