Anime Thread

Recommended Posts

Now that I've finished watching Golden Time I'm rewatching Toradora. I still love this show.

 

Kickstarter? Maybe I should stop living under a rock so I'll actually know about these things.

 

Do you use Crunchyroll? The announcement was posted on there back when it happened; http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2013/07/08-1/little-witch-academia-2-kickstarter-page-now-live

 

Their anime/culture news isn't always worthwhile but in recent times it's become pretty good.

It's more that I just ignore news of all kinds. I guess I've never really been interested in sifting through all the news stuff just to find things that interest me.

 

 

How to like anime??

First, think of the kind of shows/movies/books/whatever you like. Then look for recommendations of good anime in those genre.

My 10 year old has taken up an interest in anime so since I know nothing, would you community experts be able to recommend something age appropriate?

Nothing too overly childish.. but nothing with tentacles doing bad things either...

He just wants a really good story to read.

Thank you in advance.

All of what I'm going to suggest are for the most part PG at worst, but feel free to double check by taking a peek; it's been a while since I've seen most of these titles. They're also a pretty good start for those interested in the medium, and I'd recommend this list to just about anyone.

Case Closed/Meitantei Conan

Uchouten Kazoku

Girls und Panzer

Katanagatari

Kyousougiga

Little Witch Academia

Cromartie High School

Summer Wars

The Girl Who Lept Through Time

 

How did you find Golden Time?

 

I don't know about TouchFluffyTail, but I'm halfway through it, and it was amusing. I hear the drama gets crazy later on in the series.

Most of the earlier episodes keep the drama down a bit and tend to be more amusing than anything else, and like what teh_chris says, once you get to the last 4-6 episodes the drama goes nuts and leaves most of the funny stuff behind.

It does have a nice ending, but you might not like it too much. No one suddenly runs off for strange reasons though.

I havent heard anyone say anything about Hitsugi no Chaika.  Decided to watch it yesterday and was extremely pleasantly surprised.  Chaika is like the best character ever, AND the story/plot/background seems promising (those parts could just as easily turn to shit though, cause anime)!  definitely excited to see what this turns into. will watch regardless cause chaika is super cool.  I think the sniper rifle was a bad choice though, but w.e, only bothers me a little.  If you read the LN don't be crushing my dreams n stuff pls.  Also I can't decide if/howmuch CR subs are misleading me >_>

I read the Light novel of chaika, black bullet, and No Game No Life.

 

Chaika and NGNL went a bit flat in 2-3 volumes.

 

Black Bullet only got better.  It's almost like Attack on Titan but with loli and more messed up characters, and NTR.

I couldn't take it. Stopped at the half way point.

 

I can't stand characters that are completely broken, lack any redeeming qualities and do nothing but cause drama for themselves. Only reason why I tried the show out in the first place was because of the name tied to it, but I found that I hated the female lead of it even more than I hated Ami from Toradora. And Lynn Minmay. And Sheryl Nome and so on...

Ami best girl indeed. Never watched Golden Time. I might depending on what this forums says about it.

It's a medium. Look for genres that you would like. It's good to gain a wide exposure to different kinds of anime though. You can start with the top 50 by bayesian estimate on ANN if you just want some good stuff to nomm on.

 

If you can read Chinese, I can introduce you to the Chinese ACG community. The resources available are very good indeed.

Chaika the Coffin Princess is one of the highlights of my Wednesdays.  Looks like things are going to start getting interesting but I like Chaika as a character non the less.  Carefree in many ways yet serious when it counts, also her broken speech pattern is amazing.

I'd like some sources. Frankly even though I can read and write I don't browse Chinese sources much.

Eh. It can be worse. At least you don't seem to hold heavy preconceptions of how all cartoons are 4kids. I recommend the following by type:

 

Lots of Talking:

Spice and Wolf

Bakemonogatari

 

Romance:

Clannad

Toradora

 

Mecha:

Break Blade

Macross F

Gurren Lagann

 

What did I just watch:

Evangelion

Serial Experiments Lain

Kara no Kyoukai

 

Happiness in a bottle:

Nichijou

Non Non Biyori

 

Leaves a strange taste:

Hibane Renmei

Penguindrum

 

I would squeeze Haruhi in there somewhere but I can't be bothered to come up with a category.

Bilibili.tv as first choice and Acfun.com as second. They have pretty much everything you'll look for/need except for some of the really old stuff (you can try your luck though) and cartoon porn. They also update quickly and comes with a neat tracker of what is released on which day of the week.

 

Some of the more sensitive series (due to copyright or borderline softcore) require an account. If you are not logged in, some of the search results will 404 or not show up at all. Acfun registration is free and easy. Bilibili.tv has a 100 question quiz but you can just google the results.
