Hey guys,
Just hoping I can get some suggestions for some new anime to watch, been struggling to find something new.
However, I can be a bit... picky. I dislike anime with an older style of animation, and I dislike Gundam, that being said...

I really enjoyed several action/comedy anime, such as High School DxD, Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, Blue Exorcist, Irregular in Magic High School. They all had some epic moments in them, while also having enough laughs to break up the tenser parts. One of the main tropes I like from these are that the MC is crazy powerful (at certain points at least) but really only shows their true power when they get ticked off.

On a different line of thinking, I enjoy several of the more comedic/ecchi type animes as well, such as Nisekoi, Saekano, Trinity Seven, Toradora, basically any where the MC has his own harem of girls, who he either openly acknowledges or is absolutely oblivious to.

When it comes to dub/sub, I personally prefer dub (if it is good) because I watch most anime while playing games, and that is quite a bit easier with a dub, however I still love it just as much in sub.

Well that's my current list of preferences, I may update later if I can identify any other tropes that could be found elsewhere as well.

Thanks all, and never stop watching anime!

Sounds like you like a lot of comic stuff. Supes and Hulk are the big characters when it comes to being OP when pissed off.

All 4 of those has the older animation style that I just can't get used to, but after I watched the first few, I could definitely see the humor in each of them.

Well Hajime no Ippo and Fullmetal Panic have sequel seasons in newer animation. Have you tried some older stuff that's renowned for it's animation. Like say Ghibli movies or Akira? Maybe you could get into older shows easing into it.

It isn't really a getting used to it thing, I have just only ever watched newer anime, and going back feels similar to playing an n64 or earlier game, it isn't that the game is bad, often far from it, but it is not easy to play for very long.

Around what to date is the cut off for a series being old? Because some of the the series I listed I don't consider old.
And I might as well give this another shot.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Devil is a Part Timer
Soul Eater
NLGL
Problem Children are coming from another world aren't they
Kaze no Stigma
Ao no Exorcist
Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple
