Hey Guys! Wondering if you can recommend something binge-worthy.
Here's the skinny:

My favorite anime (in no particular order) are:

(Older)
Samurai Champloo
Death Note
Gurren Lagann
Full Metal Alchemist
X

(Newer)
Attack on Titan
One Punch Man
Boku no Hero Academia
Sword Art Online (season 1 only) - Season 2 seemed LAME

I love smartly written, gripping, epic, story-driven shows that also throw in humor sometimes, like the best live-action shows do (Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, etc.)
Shows that have you NEEDING to watch the next ep and the next.

Only caveat is they can't be too "kiddie" or formulaic (where the same thing happens every episode) - (eg. Bleach, Soul Eater, Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru, etc)

Can you recommend any shows (newer preferred) like that???

Thanks!!

Angel Beats is probably up your alley. It's starts off dead serious (heh) then zig-zags to comedy and back from there (sometimes from scene to scene.)

Library Wars' very premise is absurd, but it's played pretty straight action-wise and has some light moments.

If you liked Gurren Lagann you should see Kill la Kill.

One Punch Man and Mob Psycho 100 are instant classics with plenty of action and humor.

The Devil is a Part-Timer and Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid have more humor but there's some action in there, while Durarara is more action with some good humor.
