Anime Suggestions for Everyone :)
« on: 2011-02-02 20:51:04 »
So my g/f is becoming interested in anime and I am not an expert or addict and I wanted to know some suggestions of either good series or good movies.  I will provide some info.

She loved Rurouni Kenshin (we haven't watched Samurai X), She absolutely loved Elfen Lied, She hasn't seen many episodes, but she enjoyed what she saw of Full Metal Alchemist.  Now I have watched all the Adult Swim shows and I have seen some Ghost in the Shell and Deathnote and other movies, but I am by no means as familiar with anime as I am with say...Final Fantasy.  Those of you who are hardcore enthusiasts may scoff at some of the shows listed above, but she is interested in the genre and we are looking for some suggestions.  Hopefully I'm not killed for this, but I don't like Bleach much and am looking for some shows/movies containing some artistic quality and story with substance.  Any Not all suggestions will be appreciated.  Thanks.

Serious suggestions: Cowboy Bebop, FLCL, absolutely any series or movie related to Lupin III (The Castle of Cagliostro was particularly good).

When someone asks for anime, it's safe to assume they DON'T mean porn unless they explicitly say the want porn.

A quick google search will do wonders, and in an Anime thread, you bet your ass I'm gonna google everything people mention, because I'm constantly on the prowl for new anime to watch as well.

Thanks KM for trying to set the mood for me, but I dont think she would be into what Bible Black has to offer.  Perhaps if you had some suggestions that weren't ehh...sexually explicit?  Elfen Lied was packed full of boobs, but they were more like boobs in Boticelli's work than Hugh Hephner's work. I know you're keeping some good suggestions to yourself!

>implying you haven't watched Bible Black

So, an anime with extreme and needless gore and violence is OK, but porn isn't? You're American, aren't you?

I've recently become enamoured with Shinryaku! Ika Musume and would fully recommend watching it. Watch out for the third part of episode 5, however; it's
Spoiler: show
as sad as
the episode of Rozen Maiden Traumend where
Spoiler: show
Hinaichigo dies
.

Or you could just watch Lucky Star. I don't know if I've told you, but I like that anime.

Why would I want to watch that crap? According to the wikipedia article, it's all witchcraft and rituals and rape and stuff. Anyone who frequents the IRC (you should check it out sometime) knows that I'm obsessed with romance. Porn aside, I'd much rather see sex in the context of love than violence, and I don't particularly find the million and one anime that focus on dark magic particularly entertaining or unique. From the wikipedia article: "Sex, horror imagery and human sacrifice are common at the school and in the game." This just isn't a combination I find worth my time, when I could be watching lighthearted and fun things.

Now I shall suggest the only anime I have ever liked, .Hack//SIGN

Also, KM, I'm American but see no issue with porn, OR extreme/needless gore =D

Berserk, Samurai Deeper Kyo, lots of the gundam series, Samurai X is a given though you mentioned it (its a bit bloodier then rurouni kenshin though).

Ayashi no Ceres.

Also, Noein. And possibly Canaan.  But definitely Ayashi & Noein. At least IMO.

Chi-chigau yo! I'm not a paedophile, OK? We prefer the term lolicon and...ummm...NFI-kun wa baka!

Spoiler: show
Akshully, I has a confession: I'm not a lolicon at all. In fact, if anything I seem to go for older women


It is freakishly adorable though, isn't it?

I quite enjoyed bible black, story was one of the best i've noted in a hentai, albeit mildly predictable. that being said, the animation was rly weird in that - largely in the shading - highly toned ppl der :P

That's one of the reasons I didn't like it; they just didn't look sexy. They looked horrifying, in fact.

The other is that at first I didn't know I'd downloaded a dual audio version and was stuck listening to the BEST DUB EVAR!

(I saw Death Note Movie,OVA but don't like it so mutch)...

I don't really watch anime's, but if you want a completely serious anime that explains everything, you should watch girlchan in paradise.

I'll just leave this here
It's in my personal rating order. However expect lots of Loli/Ecchi/Otaku anime.

Also I agree with Kudistos Megistos, Bible Black is good, haven't watched the Hentai tho. But played the eroge.
I like their works Discipline more tho.

Highschool of the Dead. Best Short Series Anime I've watched so far. If you want gore/zombie sh*t, with a twist of sexiness, try this one. Note that this anime contains no porn.  :)
