Too many series, too little time.

Postby KonokoHasano » Wed Jul 06, 2011 5:50 pm

I'm trying to consider an anime series to watch, but there's so many choices that I honestly can't think of which.

Was kind of hoping people could have some recommendations. ^^;;

Suggestions
A Certain Scientific Railgun
Gakuen Alice
Dai Mahou Touge (Finished)
Revolutionary Girl Utena (Finished)
Aria
Ouran High School Host Club (Have mostly read the manga, and have seen a bit of the anime, though not finished)
Hoi Hoi San
Yume Tsukai
Black Lagoon
Kurokami
Dragonaut
Princess Lover
Cromartie High School,
Azumanga Daioh,
School Rumble,
Saint Seiya,
Hokuto no Ken,
Captain Tsubasa,
One Piece (Currently following the series)
Welcome to the NHK
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Key the Metal Idol
Galaxy Angel (First season finished)
Shugo Chara
Hayate no Gotoku
Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu
Nichijou
Beelzebub

A Certain Scientific Railgun was good
Gakuen Alice was promising, but its continuity was badly broken
Dai Mahou Touge was twisted like a pretzel, but interesting
Revolutionary Girl Utena has a new release - it's 39 eps, a classic, and very worthwhile
Aria is four seasons of pleasant relaxation; luxurious
Ouran High School Host Club is peculiar fun
Hoi Hoi San is one episode of win
Yume Tsukai is what Sigmund Freud would have done if he were Japanese, and did anime instead of psychiatry

I'd most highly recommend Aria if you want relaxation, Utena if you're looking for intensity, and HoiHoi San if you only have one evening to play with.

I'm not picky, really. XD

Might give those a try. Gakuen Alice and Ouran High School are two I read as manga, but ended up losing track of. XD

Personally, thought Index, Index II, and Railgun ok, but not overly great. Specific arcs and characters were well done though. Not bad for watching, though I was quite disappointed with both Index II ending, and Railgun ending. Index II because he failed to keep his promise and in doing so failed to team up with someone whom really could have caused them to be a major difference to all sides. Railgun because they failed to cover the single most important aspect of Misaka's like, the network... Major bummer.

Revolutionary Girl Utena has a new release - it's 39 eps, a classic, and very worthwhile

Wait... remake, or merely rerelease?

Aria is four seasons of pleasant relaxation; luxurious

Crud... You got my hopes up, I thought you meant Hidan no Aria, not Aria... Sadly, HnA is still only one season of 12 eps.

There is also the Black Lagoon OAV's, which just completed. If you like seedy it is good, though knowledge of the manga or anime is required.

And there is Kurokami aka Black God. I've only seen part of that so far, but it is interesting. Full season, plus OAV.

I recently watched Dragonaut, that was not too bad.

Going back a bit further (I watched it late last year), if you are looking at a harem romance with some action, there is Princess Lover.

And that's the bottom line 'cause Dumbledork said so.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys, I'll look into several of those sometime after finishing Hare+Guu.

My personal favorites:

One Piece (been very into this for a while)
Welcome to the NHK
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Key the Metal Idol (which, in my opinion, is one of the most underrated animes)

Well, those are some of mine

I just finished Revolutionary Girl Utena. I thought the series was definitely awesome~ <3

Currently, I decided to start on watching GoLion. Haven't bothered much with CrunchyRoll for a long while, but found out that there's some good series on there.

Yeah, One Piece is one of the four series I follow each week, and is one of my top four favorite series. XD

Well, now that you've watched the TV series, the movie should be somewhat more comprehensible. It did very poorly by Nanami, though.

One Piece

Warning: it's 507 episodes long and still seems it is barely halfway through its main plot!
Five. Hundred. Episodes. It'll take you a year just to catch to the present point if you start watching it from the start.

Oda did mention once that the series was only at its halfway point at around chapter 500 to 600, so it's going to be a long one.

I'll have to watch that sometime later when I get the chance. XD

Galaxy Angel.

Watch.

It.

I'm watching you. U_U

On a more serious note (or not?):

Shugo Chara
Hayate no Gotoku
Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu
Nichijou
Beelzebub

...And Dororon Enma-kun (But it's a dare, not a recommendation! :P )

.... I really do need to finally get around to Galaxy Angel sometime.... >//>

I finished Captain Harlock a couple days ago, and I started on Space Battleship Yamato. Been debating what to watch after that. ^^;;
