Hi guys, I'm a pretty big fan of a good anime series, recently i've been watching:
Bleach
Ghost in the Shell

What i want to know, is what you guys watch, and also ones that you think that I would like if i like Bleach and Ghost in the Shell. There are heaps of other anime's out there but alot of them suck and dont really grasp me.

So yeah, any help as to what good anime series are about that i could watch.

Thanks guys!

I agree.My point was that I love the anime..I just don't get why the creator couldn't have done more than that.And the weird thing about it is.It seems like there is more than 6..but there isn't.
#21 Posted by Hell_D3mon (50 posts) -

I'm suprised no one said (that I've seen) Outlaw Star.  Probably one of the only ones I'd ever watch if I got back into anime.  Recent animes just make me want to hurlllllllllllllllll.

Death Note
Afro Samurai
Bleach
Naruto
Full Metal Alchemist
One Piece

#23 Posted by Civvie (97 posts) -

Desert Punk is definitely worth a watch. It's got a lot of adult humor and a lot of gun battles and such to keep you interested.

#27 Posted by Oriental_Jams (3072 posts) -

Oh, forgot to say Afro Samurai.

#28 Posted by twenty0ne (3056 posts) -

Pokemon is the only anime worth watching.

ReTarDedFisHy's favorite anime series:
Trigun
Wolf's Rain
Naruto
Bleach
Death Note

Trigun is his favorite anime series of all time.

#37 Posted by pause422 (6263 posts) -

Not too big into anime in general, a lot seem to be aimed at like the  teen audience,with going a bit darker or violent,only to have certain cliche's of childish moments or humor that feel awkward(just the way the japanese do things I guess)..but I'd have to say the ones I like most are GitS and Death Note.

For number five did you mean to right Air or did you mean Air Gear?
#45 Posted by TanKLoveR (337 posts) -

Cowboy bebop and Evangelion are the best anime ever made EVER. Now with that said the ones im watching right now are Code Geass R2 and Macross Frontier =D, Geass is damn awesome imagine if Kira but a little less evil piloted a gundam and was trying to destroy an evil empire(the whole world) with a small army, the writing in that show is pure genius T_T. And Macross is just very robotech which is nice if u like that type of shows.

There are a ton more i could recommend but i sugest u start from here.

#46 Posted by pause422 (6263 posts) -

Bleach doesn't bother me much,I've watch a bit of it and its ok.. but I'll never get Naruto's appeal. Not bashing it to any fans to like it so don't flame me or something,i'll just never get it. A lot of people say it has a "amazing" story that is definitely not  "childish",but when the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of the show is a 12 year old looking kid in an orange jogging suit(looks like one at least) said to be a ninja with the kind of dialogue you would hear from a 2nd grader,it just doesn't do it.

No, I believe it's called AirTV, but I call it Air.

I've seen them both.. I still like Naruto and Bleach but I enjoy most anime more.. And I hate the fillers.


Currently, I'm watching Neon Genesis Evangelion and Clannad.
