Topics I've Started

In search of some good anime recommendations

31 May 2018 - 05:25 PM

So let me start by saying that I didn't used to like anime for a long time, but then I came across some gems and am now quite the fan.  I really love anime for their immersive stories and incredible casts of characters, and would be fond of any series that plays to these elements.  Here are some that I like, to give you an idea of my taste:

 

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (just everything about it, really, from its storytelling to its suspense, and I loved the characters)

Death Note (I loved the suspense and immersive story)

Erased (It was very intriguing and similar to Death Note in a lot of ways.  I also found the characters to be especially relatable)

Aldnoah.Zero (I enjoyed the political intrigue as well as the storyline, but it was also amazing in terms of soundtrack)

Gundam Wing (for essentially the same reasons as Aldnoah, excepting maybe the storyline.  I liked the politics and the characters)

Fate/Stay Night (and rest of Fate series, though Stay Night is my favorite.  I love how beautiful this anime is, from its graphics, music choice, and overall storytelling and emotion.  I felt that this was a well-rounded series that I just enjoyed immensely.)

Yu-Gi-Oh (nostalgia reasons)

 

Things that I typically dislike in an anime:

 

High-school settings

Slice of Life

Anything too oriental

 

I've tried Fairy Tail and didn't really care for it, and while I somewhat like Sword Art Online I feel that it has its fair share of problems.  I've also tried Code Geass but I just couldn't get myself into it, though I know that it is popular and well loved.  Does anyone have some suggestions on what I may like that is similar to the ones that I mentioned enjoying?  Thanks!

I want to wish a very special friend a very happy birthday today.  To a person who's smart, funny, caring, and always such a joy to be around.  Our friendship has impacted my life in many positive ways, and I'm quite certain that you have had quite a similar impact on others as well.  The world needs more kind and wonderful people like you. : )  I'm glad that you were brought into the world on this day all those years ago!

 

Happy Birthday, Wakeless!
