I haven't actually seen any of those anime unfortunately, so I can't give you my opinion on any of them. I can understand you're not wanting to watch it on your laptop. The last time I checked, Code Geass, Cowboy Bebop, and Neon Genesis were all on netflix as was Eden of the East, Death Note, Elfen Lied and several others that I listed.

Speaking of which, if you look up a bit you'll find that I've given you several more anime recommendations as well as an in depth review (Or as in depth as I can get with 2000 characters per post) on both Neon Genesis Evangelion and Code Geass. Happy anime watching~

yeah theyre on the american netflix but as usual we get shafted in the UK. i'd buy crunchyroll but we dont even get that despite them saying they were planning to bring it here over two years ago. it seems like most of the other anime netflix has sucks because the few people ive spoke to havent heard of them/ never watched them, and the reviews arent too great either. i should just bite the bullet and watch them online, but the picture quality tends to suffer so much. do you have links for places to watch these? thanks

Just bear in mind with hellsing there's two versions, they both have the same characters in general, but the plot is different, hellsing ultimate is more canon with the manga and in my opinion, better. I might as well add on a couple, not to the detail as above though, no offense, but google them for more info.

Clannad- A slice of life (usually means a mostly realistic setting) anime about theirr relationship between two people from high school till afterwards (warning, this one will make even the manliest of manly men cry), great anime even if you're looking for something with less action and fighting.

Tora-dora- another slice of life anime worth the watch. About a guy with a scary face and an agressive pint-sized midget, good story with a few chuckles thrown in.

Spice and wolf- Fantasy set anime about the adventures of a travelling peddler and a wolf-goddess of the harvest, less on the violence but full of intrigue.

Black lagoon- probably heard of this one, a Quentin tarinteno inspired anime about a crew of misfit mercenaries in a lawless city, tons of guns violence and all that good stuff, another bonus is sony bought the production righs and only costs about half as much to buy a physical copy
User avatar #190 - silentark (11 hours ago) [-]
Fullmetal alchemist- Another of those 'everybody and his mom' type animes, deep plot, memorable characters with a bit of humor, just bear in mind that, like hellsing, theres two versions with brotherhood being more canon with the anime

Sword art online- another of those everybody ones. solid story set in an MMORPG turned death game, only real disappointment was the seasons ended rather spontaniously. Just bear in mind season 3 (gun gale online) hasn't been released in english yet.

Guilty crown- If you liked code geass, you will enjoy this one, rebel uprisings, MC has special power, mystery female lead, etc.
User avatar #197 - silentark (11 hours ago) [-]
Girls und Panzer- about rival groups of schoolgirls partipating in competitions where groups of tanks face off against each other, they got their history on the tanks mostly spot on, but probably give it a miss if you're not a tank-nut

Darker than black- Gritty anime involving people with supernatural powers, albeit with a sometimes grisly cost (e.g. the first ep there's a guy who can defy gravity, but has to break his own fingers as compensation, or an opera singer with a sonic voice, but has to eat cigarettes after use), pretty damn worth looking into.

Bake/Nisemonogatari- a series getting to two full seasons and a few movies, about a previously vampire- possessed student and the supernatural, tons of intrigue and lots of accurate refences to jap lore, worth the watch if you like supernatural flicks.

Fairy tail- another large, mainstream anime made by shounen jump (one piece) about the (mis)adventures centered around a guild of slightly insane, overpowered mercenaries, personally havent watched past season 2 but so far story is what to expect from Jump and the fillers have given me a chuckle

Persona 4 the animation - I rarely recommend animes or movies based on games but this one is worth it. about a group of students fighting in an alternate world to prevent murders in theirs, worth the watch and the two or three fillers didn't kill it.
User avatar #199 - silentark (11 hours ago) [-]
Last couple
Melancoly of haruhi suzumiya- likely heard of this one, two seaons, a movie and a spin off. about the main character and high school with a nonsensical girl who has the habit of making her delusoins real. Fun to watch, just beware there is a six episode black hole, you can skip episodes 13-18.

soul collector- set in a colledge where a controller and their anthromorphic weapons collect he souls of evil beings, interesting art style, zany characters and good action sequences across four seasons.

Lucky star- kinda love or hate, slice of life involving the random daily life of four schoolgirls, no real plot, but I found one of the main characters a bit TOO easy to identify with.

Chrome shelled regios- set in a world overrun with air polluting monsters and the only inhabitable places are giant, walking domed cities, good story with plenty of action

While I could keep going i'm going to stop, i'm hungry, got crap to do and getting bored.

ok well if you like kill la kill you absolutley fucking have to watch gurren lagann. People were excited for kill la kill to be gurren lagann succesor but it wasnt at all. kill la kill is good. but gurren lagann is fucking legendary.

also my little monster is really fun to watch and also my best friend who doesnt watch anime only watches hunter x hunter so im guessing its good
#120 - rdunc (15 hours ago) [-]
awesome, im really into kill la kill, so sounds like this is gonna blow my fuckin mind. i really wish netflix UK had a more comprehensive anime collection. i want to brush up on the classics, cowboy bebop, , evangelion, code geass etc but i dont really like watching stuff on my laptop
User avatar #111 - golnax (15 hours ago) [-]
Okay, so while I don' readily know what anime are on the netflix in UK (although I could find out pretty easily, I'm both lazy and tired) but seeing as how you have access to FJ, I'm going to assume you have a source of internet to watch it elsewhere and if need be, I can provide sauce for many of the anime I'm about to list.

Get ready for multiple replies, 'cause there's probably gonna be a couple.

*Takes in a huge breath*

Attack on Titan - Figured I'd get this one out of the way. Yes, everyone and their mother likes this show. Yes it's probably overhyped. But you know what? It's still worth the watch. Amazing animation, and amazing story, a stellar musical score and, best of all, it's going to have lots of episodes but not an enormous fuck ton like One Piece, Bleach or Naruto (Which I'll also go over). Currently there's 25 episodes in total, some of which are in English if you prefer to watch it dubbed. I went ahead and watched it subbed, and I normally hate subs. That's how good this anime is. 10/10, watch that shit.

Death Note - another anime that everyone and their mother loves to death, but again for a reason. Where other anime might be filled with action, this one isn't as much and in fact, the entire thing plays out like a battle of wits. With an excellent antihero as the main character, the story will make you question just what is right in terms of justice and wielding power. Not to mention this anime is unique in that it has two endings. Episode 25 is ending one, and if you're not satisfied with that there's always ending two which ends on episode 37. 10/10, get on that shit.

Continued.

Next I'll cover the big 4 - Naruto, Bleach, One Piece and Dragon Ball Z

Naruto - This anime is about ninjas in its own... unique way. It's not at all like the ninjas of our world, but then again it doesn't have to be. This anime is actually split into two parts, the first half which is over 200 episodes, and the second half which is currently ongoing. The story is, I think, fantastic in its own right but it can drag on a bit and seem to linger around events that are seemingly unimportant, but in the end connect with the story as a whole. It's got a lot of filler episodes too, so you'll have to skip those. 8.5 out of 10 going on 9, worth the time if you want to sit down and watch it all.

Bleach - Here's an anime that'll make you pumped up, frustrated and exhilarated, sometimes all at the same time. The story is... all over the place, unfortunately, but its easy to follow and it definitely has its moments. The action is great, animation is unique in its own right and the main villain is outright genius in scale to others. Interesting and memorable characters are everywhere and the sound track is unique. Where it falters is the filler. Where Naruto had filler episodes, Bleach has filler seasons. Yes, entire seasons of filler. Beware. I'd take it with a grain of salt though and just skip over these personally until after the main story is concluded, then watch the filler seasons afterwards as they can be watched then and still make sense. 7/10, worth your time if you can stand to skip filler seasons.

DBZ - The one that started them all. Big action, suuuuuper long fight scenes, stellar animation that holds up to this day, super simple story and really all around a fun time. Won't make a huge impact in your life as in make you rethink your existence like Death Note or a couple of others I'll mention might, but you'll want to be a saiyan by the end of it. 8/10, watch that and Dragon Ball some time. Don't watch GT though.

Continue?
User avatar #121 - golnax (15 hours ago) [-]
One Piece - This anime is in of itself fantastic. Unlike the other three super giants, this anime extremely little filler. Yes it has episodes that are not in the manga and these can be considered filler, but the anime is constructed in a way that it's next to impossible for there to be filler. In fact, in the 300 episodes I've watched of it, only 2 have been outright filler and even then those were funny episodes. It's a show about a merry group of rag tag pirates all chasing their dreams. Feel good, actiony, with lots of memorable moments and characters and character development for days, this is arguably the best of the big four. If you can stomach over 500+ episodes, 700+ chapters of manga and live to tell the tale. 8.5/10, give it a chance matey.

Now on to some smaller anime:

Afro Samurai - 5 episodes, 2 movies. That's it, the shortest anime I've ever seen other than FLCL. What makes it so special though? Samuel. L. Jackson. The nigga himself voices the main character and his wacky, white haired ninja side kick. The story again isn't overly complicated, nor is it very serious. But if you're looking for a short action series with lots of action and a killer voice actor as the lead, this is where you need to go.

FLCL - otherwise known as Fooly Cooly! This nonsensical anime is what put nonsensical anime on the map (I think, could be wrong). Filled with seemingly random events and a non linear story, FLCL will keep you guessing, laughing, and asking what's happening throughout - unless you pay really close attention and can wade through the almost satirical overtones. If you like Kill la Kill, you'll love it's predecessor. 8/10, it's a Fooly Cooly dream thing.

Eden of the East - Not gonna lie, you'll probably either love or hate this one. A crazy story about a guy giving strangers seemingly all powerful cell phones and telling them to change the world, it's a slice of life anime with a bit of a twist. 11 episodes and 2 movies, it's little known show but good.
User avatar #123 - golnax (14 hours ago) [-]
Hellsing - Here's another one everyone and their mother likes. This is arguably one of the most iconic anime out there. Lots of gore, action, swearing (God the swearing), big world themes like religion and war, the story follows Alucard, a seemingly unstoppable vampire helping the British government... for some reason. The anime itself is 13 episodes I believe, but it has an OVA that covers the story as well. 9/10, watch this and the abridged series you cheeky cock waffle.

Elfen Lied - following the theme of gore, here's Elfen Lied - potentially the goriest anime I've seen. It's definitely the first that comes to mind when I think gore and anime. With a short listing of 13 episodes, this is another one of those you'll either love or hate. Other than the main antihero, the characters aren't very memorable but the music certainly is, and the story is downright heartbreaking at times. If you're in the mood to cry and potentially cringe, this one's worth your time. Also boobs. 8/10.

Gun Grave - Now here's a little known diamond in the rough. Gun Grave is about a man brought back from the dead in an almost Frankenstein like manner who is hellbent on one thing - getting his memories and life back. A mafia filled story of loss, friendship and regret, this show will have you loving, hating, then loving one of the main characters again and again until the very last episode which is so, so satisfying to get to. Of all the anime I've suggested so far, this one potentially has the best pacing. 9.5/10

Trigun - Another relatively little known anime, this show follows the story of Vash the Stampede, a man who wherever he goes trouble seems to follow, but he just wants love and peace for the entire world. A heartbreaking story of misfortune, this anime will get you addicted to its quirky themes in no time and make you sad that it ends the way it does, or maybe satisfied depending on your point of view. 9/10, watch this show sometime.

More later, I'm getting a bit of shut eye.

Continued.

Cowboy Bebop - Space cowboys. That is the general theme, and it's fucking awesome. Spike and his small rag tag crew are bounty hunters just flying throughout the solar system collecting bounties. Dull as that might sound, it's really exciting to watch. In the short time frame that they focus on each character, they all get developed surprisingly well - even the side characters that you don't see much of, Like Edward's father for example. This is the only anime I know of that has won awards as well, not including movies of course, sot that alone should tell you it's worth the watch. 9/10, see you when you're done watching space cowboy.

Paranoia Agent - Oh boy, this anime. This is one of my personal favorites and for good reason I think. This is a very... subtle anime. And at the same time, it's not subtle. The premise of the show is that a young character designer is attacked one night by a young boy with a golden bat and skates, and pretty soon other people are attacked as well, leading the police on a merry go round to find this person and eventually the entire country/world. This anime focuses heavily on themes of paranoia, rumors, and psychology and is often over looked because of how its structured. But, like FLCL, if you pay attention it all makes sense - and it's brilliant. 10/10, get your paranoia on.

Digimon - Now here's a curve ball huh? Contrary to the other anime I've listed so far, this is a show specifically targeted at kids. However, it's time tested and Digimon is more mature than it might seem. It delves in themes of unity, friendship, and more mature topics like divorce and the death of a family member, all from a child's point of view and of course while trying to save the world. I'll admit this is a childhood favorite of mine, but as I said, it's time tested and I can watch it year after year and still find something to enjoy. If you're looking for something light hearted, here's your show. 8/10, easily.

More to come.
User avatar #208 - golnax (11 hours ago) [-]
Durarara!! - Now here's a fun little show. Ryugamine has just moved to the big city of Tokyo, Ikebukuro to be more specific, and his best friend is showing him around. But lots of weird and amazing things happen in this city, like a headless motor bike rider and a guy who can throw guard rails like they were nothing. Never a dull moment in this anime, and the climax drawing between three rival gangs is rather tense towards the later episodes, all coming up to a satisfying conclusion at the end. 8.5/10, worth the Russia Sushi it promotes.

FMA - Full Metal Alchemist is another one of those unique animes. Yes everyone's seen it and yes it's as good as it's made out to be. How it's unique is that like Hellsing it splits in two, the original series and Brotherhood. If I were to have you watch these two one at a time, I'd have you watch the original first. The first 15 episodes or so are spot on to the manga, where as in brotherhood the initial episodes are more recaps of these 15 and feel rushed. After that though, brotherhood would be the better anime. They're both good in their own right, but there really is no comparing them. Watch 'em both or watch one, this is one not to miss. 9.5/10

.hack -This is the series that SAO and Log Horizon want to be - and this came first. Seriously, the premise is the same but just... better, more fresh I think. Virtual reality MMO, things happen to people in real life, etc. I'll be honest, I haven't seen all of this - there are 4 series of it I believe, but it's on my to do list. .hack was the first and is probably going to stay the best out of this trio of MMO anime. Since I haven't seen it all, I'll give this a ??/10 with a positive outlook.

Devil May Cry - Oh yes, there's an anime for this. 13 episodes, same voice actors as in DMC3 and 4, if you like DMC you'll like this. Lady makes and appearance as well a couple of times, which was nice to see too. Don't remember much about this, only that dante doesn't go devil mode. 7/10.
User avatar #212 - golnax (11 hours ago) [-]
Monster - This anime is really fucking good. How good you ask? HBO has been pondering with the idea of making this a live action series, that's how good. Monster takes place in Germany and is about a young and upcoming genius of surgery who one fateful night saves the life of a child rather than a politician. This child, as it turns out, was a killer though and went on to kill more afterwards. Once the surgeon found out, he made it his mission to end the life of that boy to make up for all the lives he indirectly took. A masterful anime with a downright chilling villain at times, this is a slightly longer anime that I blazed through and I'm sure you will too. 10/10, heil Johann.

GunXSword - Another little known anime, GunXSword takes place on a planet called the Endless Illusion and follows a couple of wayward vagabonds Vaan and Wendy as they hunt for The Claw, a man who took Vaan's one and only love and Wendy's brother from them. This is a bit of a light hearted show... at first, right up until around episode 15 or so I think. Lots of laughs, plenty of action, it's a fun adventure to follow up to the end. 8/10, DAMN IT'S SPICY!

I'm starting to run out of anime to list, so I'll finish this off with a fully dedicated post to two of my favorites - Neon Genesis Evangelion and Code Geass, one for each. These are the big wigs in my book, and I'll explain why shortly.
#217 - golnax (10 hours ago) [-]
Neon Genesis Evangelion - Now this is an anime that I often find you either love it or you hate it, and I fall into the former group. There are so many reasons to love this anime, but let me point to what drew me to it at first, first. When the creator of Neon Genesis was making the show, he was diagnosed with clinical depression. Like, full on suicidal thoughts clinical depression, and for the first half of the anime he was on medication to help deal with that. The second half, he drops the meds. And it shows.

The premise of the show is that 10 years in the past, beings known as Angels appeared and almost systematically destroyed everything in their path. When they had passed, humanity decided to make a contingency plan should they ever return, thus the EVA program was born, in which titanic robotic beings that need to be piloted by 14 year old children. Now, 10 years later, the Angels are back and it's up to Shinji and two others to stop them from destroying it all again.

Now, without spoiling anything, let me just touch up on how the creator's depression showed as the show progressed. At first, it's easy fighting off the Angels and balancing every day life. But as the Angels keep coming it keeps getting harder and harder, and Shinji's mental state slowly deteriorates as does everyone else's with the threat of annihilation hanging over them. In case it wasn't obvious, religion is a theme in this anime and was a point of tension for the creator, hence his inclusion of it in the show.

I really can't stress enough how you can just see the creator's depression manifest as the show goes on. There was a point in episode 19 when the EVA goes out of control that flat startled me because of how different it was to everything else thus far in animation and in violence. This anime is a first hand look into the mind of a clinically depressed person, and it's a thrilling experience at that. 10/10, get in the damn robot Shinji.
#220 - golnax (10 hours ago) [-]
Code Geass - Lelouch of the Rebellion R1 & R2 - Where do I even begin? This is by far my favorite anime of all time thus far, and I can't see anything replacing it any time soon. There are so many things I love about this anime, the music, the animation, the characters, the story, the pure emotion - and I cannot stress this enough, this is an emotion fueled anime. There is anger in Lelouch's voice, sorrow in Suzaku's, rage and conflict and depression and disappointment - I've never seen so many character convey such a wide array of emotions over the course of 50 episodes in an anime before and so welly executed.

Lelouch Lamporogue, also known as Lelouch Vi Britannia, is an exiled prince of the Holy Britannian empire. He and his crippled sister Nunally, abandoned by their father and their country, now live in Area 11 - the formerly known country as Japan, taken over by the Empire 8 years prior. When Lelouch gets mixed up in some rebel terrorist activity, he is given a godlike power from a mysterious woman - the absolute ability to compell anyone to do anything for him. With this power and nearly a lifetime filled with hatred for his country, Lelouch sets out to destroy the Holy Britannian empire and recreate the world into a kinder, more gentler place for his sister.

Now, there are a couple of things I'd like to point out in all of this. This premise, the Holy Britannian empire, and even the Knightmare Frames, the show's version of a gundamn - this could have been our reality had two things in history been different. Had the Dark Ages never occurred, we would have the technology now to make Knightmare's a reality, and had Britain won the war for American Independence, the USA and likely the rest of the Americas would be the Britannian Empire as it was still known back all those years ago.

That in itself is incredible, that we could have lived in this reality instead of our own, aside from the supernatural of course. More in the next post.
User avatar #225 - golnax (10 hours ago) [-]
A small clip and slight spoiler. Helps illustrate the rant.

Lelouch Kills Charles and Marianne (English Dub)

Throughout the two series R1 and R2 (round 1 and 2), several themes are thoroughly explored that are controversial at best. Racism, oppression, political corruption, family affairs, military duty, honor, the ends justifying the means, the list goes on and on and on. The show was almost taken off of the air at one point when in it one of the characters, Meena, is shown masturbating in a dark room on the corner of a table to a picture of on the the Britannian princesses Euphemia. The fact that Code Geass had the balls to show a character's lesbian sexuality in such a risque way just goes to show how unafraid the producers were when going into this show. And the result?

For not skimming on the details, for not taking out the human element that is quite frankly almost if not entirely missed in several of the anime I've listed before this, Code Geass creates characters that almost feel alive in how human and emotional they are. Everyone is important in their own way in this show, everyone contributes to the story. There are no useless characters, no one is there just to be there. It all fits towards an emotional end game, a whole that is uncompromising in it's message - "You can't change the world without getting your hands dirty."

I'll stress it one more time, emotion is what makes this anime so good. Strip away layers of the show, the gundam aspects, the drama, the plot even and what you're left with is almost child like in its emotional values. A son abandoned by his father and forced to take care of his sister on his own, that is the core of this anime and the very soul of its nature. Neon Genesis displayed raw depression, Code Geass displays the resulting emotions of a child abandoned and practically destroyed. Infinity/10, I can find no flaws with this anime no matter how hard I might try, no matter how many times I watch, it's still by far my favorite anime of all time.

wow i really appreciate the effort man, i'll keep this bookmarked for later. do you have any thoughts on the ones i listed up in my previous comment? theres a bunch i want to watch on my laptop e.g. evangelion, code geass, cowboy bebop etc but im not really into watching stuff on the internet if i can help it, hence why i wanted to know if the netflix ones were any good. i recently watched akira online and it detracted from the it so much that i had to watch it on a laptop screen rather than my actual tv

Bake/Nisemonogatari- a series getting to two full seasons and a few movies, about a previously vampire- possessed student and the supernatural, tons of intrigue and lots of accurate refences to jap lore, worth the watch if you like supernatural flicks.

Fairy tail- another large, mainstream anime made by shounen jump (one piece) about the (mis)adventures centered around a guild of slightly insane, overpowered mercenaries, personally havent watched past season 2 but so far story is what to expect from Jump and the fillers have given me a chuckle

Persona 4 the animation - I rarely recommend animes or movies based on games but this one is worth it. about a group of students fighting in an alternate world to prevent murders in theirs, worth the watch and the two or three fillers didn't kill it.

Last couple
Melancoly of haruhi suzumiya- likely heard of this one, two seaons, a movie and a spin off. about the main character and high school with a nonsensical girl who has the habit of making her delusoins real. Fun to watch, just beware there is a six episode black hole, you can skip episodes 13-18.

soul collector- set in a colledge where a controller and their anthromorphic weapons collect he souls of evil beings, interesting art style, zany characters and good action sequences across four seasons.

Lucky star- kinda love or hate, slice of life involving the random daily life of four schoolgirls, no real plot, but I found one of the main characters a bit TOO easy to identify with.

Chrome shelled regios- set in a world overrun with air polluting monsters and the only inhabitable places are giant, walking domed cities, good story with plenty of action

While I could keep going i'm going to stop, i'm hungry, got crap to do and getting bored.

It kind of starts off as a "meh" anime. But ironically, when Kamina dies , it gets light years better. Funny thing since he was the only reason I kept watching.

Then there's the second major arc (ep. 16 and on I believe?), which is just amazing all around from the start.

you used the spoiler tag correctly, but no one actually uses it for spoilers so it was probably spoiled for him
User avatar #106 - golnax (15 hours ago) [-]
Yes, Gurren Laggan is good, and lemme tell you why.

It's a very layered anime, for starters. You'll get lots of people telling you that it'll make a man out of your anime collection or whatever, but there's more to it than a manly story. Although it is manly enough to make Major Armostrong proud.

Throughout the show there are overlaying themes of things like racism, never giving up, the choices one has to make in the event of genocide and when faced by an ultimate oppressor, so on and so forth. But these themes are presented in a way that it's not overly complicated or even where it makes you think of them at first - in fact, the show doesn't really make you think at all. It's straight forward and it's to the point, with relatively simple yet memorable dialogue and extremely memorable characters.

Other things of note would be it's bright color pallet and interesting choice in colors for both the back ground and foreground, an all around splendid animation style, the absolutely hilariously proportionate parts of the show to help balance out its seriousness (The bathhouse episode comes to mind) and it's quite frankly unexpectedly heartbreaking moments in the story.

All in all, I give Gurren Laggan a 10/10, would watch again, highly recommend it. Get on that shit after you're done with that piece of shit kill la kill (By comparison, of course.).

They have in addition to those already mentioned: my little monster, kotoura-san, hunter x hunter, arpeggio of blue steel, wakfu, samourai flamenco and knights of sidonia

thanks.

ok well if you like kill la kill you absolutley fucking have to watch gurren lagann. People were excited for kill la kill to be gurren lagann succesor but it wasnt at all. kill la kill is good. but gurren lagann is fucking legendary.

also my little monster is really fun to watch and also my best friend who doesnt watch anime only watches hunter x hunter so im guessing its good

awesome, im really into kill la kill, so sounds like this is gonna blow my fuckin mind. i really wish netflix UK had a more comprehensive anime collection. i want to brush up on the classics, cowboy bebop, , evangelion, code geass etc but i dont really like watching stuff on my laptop
User avatar #111 - golnax (15 hours ago) [-]
Okay, so while I don' readily know what anime are on the netflix in UK (although I could find out pretty easily, I'm both lazy and tired) but seeing as how you have access to FJ, I'm going to assume you have a source of internet to watch it elsewhere and if need be, I can provide sauce for many of the anime I'm about to list.

Get ready for multiple replies, 'cause there's probably gonna be a couple.

*Takes in a huge breath*

Attack on Titan - Figured I'd get this one out of the way. Yes, everyone and their mother likes this show. Yes it's probably overhyped. But you know what? It's still worth the watch. Amazing animation, and amazing story, a stellar musical score and, best of all, it's going to have lots of episodes but not an enormous fuck ton like One Piece, Bleach or Naruto (Which I'll also go over). Currently there's 25 episodes in total, some of which are in English if you prefer to watch it dubbed. I went ahead and watched it subbed, and I normally hate subs. That's how good this anime is. 10/10, watch that shit.

Death Note - another anime that everyone and their mother loves to death, but again for a reason. Where other anime might be filled with action, this one isn't as much and in fact, the entire thing plays out like a battle of wits. With an excellent antihero as the main character, the story will make you question just what is right in terms of justice and wielding power. Not to mention this anime is unique in that it has two endings. Episode 25 is ending one, and if you're not satisfied with that there's always ending two which ends on episode 37. 10/10, get on that shit.

Continued.
User avatar #119 - golnax (15 hours ago) [-]
Next I'll cover the big 4 - Naruto, Bleach, One Piece and Dragon Ball Z

Naruto - This anime is about ninjas in its own... unique way. It's not at all like the ninjas of our world, but then again it doesn't have to be. This anime is actually split into two parts, the first half which is over 200 episodes, and the second half which is currently ongoing. The story is, I think, fantastic in its own right but it can drag on a bit and seem to linger around events that are seemingly unimportant, but in the end connect with the story as a whole. It's got a lot of filler episodes too, so you'll have to skip those. 8.5 out of 10 going on 9, worth the time if you want to sit down and watch it all.

Bleach - Here's an anime that'll make you pumped up, frustrated and exhilarated, sometimes all at the same time. The story is... all over the place, unfortunately, but its easy to follow and it definitely has its moments. The action is great, animation is unique in its own right and the main villain is outright genius in scale to others. Interesting and memorable characters are everywhere and the sound track is unique. Where it falters is the filler. Where Naruto had filler episodes, Bleach has filler seasons. Yes, entire seasons of filler. Beware. I'd take it with a grain of salt though and just skip over these personally until after the main story is concluded, then watch the filler seasons afterwards as they can be watched then and still make sense. 7/10, worth your time if you can stand to skip filler seasons.

DBZ - The one that started them all. Big action, suuuuuper long fight scenes, stellar animation that holds up to this day, super simple story and really all around a fun time. Won't make a huge impact in your life as in make you rethink your existence like Death Note or a couple of others I'll mention might, but you'll want to be a saiyan by the end of it. 8/10, watch that and Dragon Ball some time. Don't watch GT though.

Continue?
User avatar #121 - golnax (15 hours ago) [-]
One Piece - This anime is in of itself fantastic. Unlike the other three super giants, this anime extremely little filler. Yes it has episodes that are not in the manga and these can be considered filler, but the anime is constructed in a way that it's next to impossible for there to be filler. In fact, in the 300 episodes I've watched of it, only 2 have been outright filler and even then those were funny episodes. It's a show about a merry group of rag tag pirates all chasing their dreams. Feel good, actiony, with lots of memorable moments and characters and character development for days, this is arguably the best of the big four. If you can stomach over 500+ episodes, 700+ chapters of manga and live to tell the tale. 8.5/10, give it a chance matey.

Now on to some smaller anime:

Afro Samurai - 5 episodes, 2 movies. That's it, the shortest anime I've ever seen other than FLCL. What makes it so special though? Samuel. L. Jackson. The nigga himself voices the main character and his wacky, white haired ninja side kick. The story again isn't overly complicated, nor is it very serious. But if you're looking for a short action series with lots of action and a killer voice actor as the lead, this is where you need to go.

FLCL - otherwise known as Fooly Cooly! This nonsensical anime is what put nonsensical anime on the map (I think, could be wrong). Filled with seemingly random events and a non linear story, FLCL will keep you guessing, laughing, and asking what's happening throughout - unless you pay really close attention and can wade through the almost satirical overtones. If you like Kill la Kill, you'll love it's predecessor. 8/10, it's a Fooly Cooly dream thing.

Eden of the East - Not gonna lie, you'll probably either love or hate this one. A crazy story about a guy giving strangers seemingly all powerful cell phones and telling them to change the world, it's a slice of life anime with a bit of a twist. 11 episodes and 2 movies, it's little known show but good.
User avatar #123 - golnax (14 hours ago) [-]
Hellsing - Here's another one everyone and their mother likes. This is arguably one of the most iconic anime out there. Lots of gore, action, swearing (God the swearing), big world themes like religion and war, the story follows Alucard, a seemingly unstoppable vampire helping the British government... for some reason. The anime itself is 13 episodes I believe, but it has an OVA that covers the story as well. 9/10, watch this and the abridged series you cheeky cock waffle.

Elfen Lied - following the theme of gore, here's Elfen Lied - potentially the goriest anime I've seen. It's definitely the first that comes to mind when I think gore and anime. With a short listing of 13 episodes, this is another one of those you'll either love or hate. Other than the main antihero, the characters aren't very memorable but the music certainly is, and the story is downright heartbreaking at times. If you're in the mood to cry and potentially cringe, this one's worth your time. Also boobs. 8/10.

Gun Grave - Now here's a little known diamond in the rough. Gun Grave is about a man brought back from the dead in an almost Frankenstein like manner who is hellbent on one thing - getting his memories and life back. A mafia filled story of loss, friendship and regret, this show will have you loving, hating, then loving one of the main characters again and again until the very last episode which is so, so satisfying to get to. Of all the anime I've suggested so far, this one potentially has the best pacing. 9.5/10

Trigun - Another relatively little known anime, this show follows the story of Vash the Stampede, a man who wherever he goes trouble seems to follow, but he just wants love and peace for the entire world. A heartbreaking story of misfortune, this anime will get you addicted to its quirky themes in no time and make you sad that it ends the way it does, or maybe satisfied depending on your point of view. 9/10, watch this show sometime.

More later, I'm getting a bit of shut eye.
User avatar #195 - golnax (11 hours ago) [-]
Continued.

Cowboy Bebop - Space cowboys. That is the general theme, and it's fucking awesome. Spike and his small rag tag crew are bounty hunters just flying throughout the solar system collecting bounties. Dull as that might sound, it's really exciting to watch. In the short time frame that they focus on each character, they all get developed surprisingly well - even the side characters that you don't see much of, Like Edward's father for example. This is the only anime I know of that has won awards as well, not including movies of course, sot that alone should tell you it's worth the watch. 9/10, see you when you're done watching space cowboy.

Paranoia Agent - Oh boy, this anime. This is one of my personal favorites and for good reason I think. This is a very... subtle anime. And at the same time, it's not subtle. The premise of the show is that a young character designer is attacked one night by a young boy with a golden bat and skates, and pretty soon other people are attacked as well, leading the police on a merry go round to find this person and eventually the entire country/world. This anime focuses heavily on themes of paranoia, rumors, and psychology and is often over looked because of how its structured. But, like FLCL, if you pay attention it all makes sense - and it's brilliant. 10/10, get your paranoia on.

Digimon - Now here's a curve ball huh? Contrary to the other anime I've listed so far, this is a show specifically targeted at kids. However, it's time tested and Digimon is more mature than it might seem. It delves in themes of unity, friendship, and more mature topics like divorce and the death of a family member, all from a child's point of view and of course while trying to save the world. I'll admit this is a childhood favorite of mine, but as I said, it's time tested and I can watch it year after year and still find something to enjoy. If you're looking for something light hearted, here's your show. 8/10, easily.

More to come.
User avatar #208 - golnax (11 hours ago) [-]
Durarara!! - Now here's a fun little show. Ryugamine has just moved to the big city of Tokyo, Ikebukuro to be more specific, and his best friend is showing him around. But lots of weird and amazing things happen in this city, like a headless motor bike rider and a guy who can throw guard rails like they were nothing. Never a dull moment in this anime, and the climax drawing between three rival gangs is rather tense towards the later episodes, all coming up to a satisfying conclusion at the end. 8.5/10, worth the Russia Sushi it promotes.

FMA - Full Metal Alchemist is another one of those unique animes. Yes everyone's seen it and yes it's as good as it's made out to be. How it's unique is that like Hellsing it splits in two, the original series and Brotherhood. If I were to have you watch these two one at a time, I'd have you watch the original first. The first 15 episodes or so are spot on to the manga, where as in brotherhood the initial episodes are more recaps of these 15 and feel rushed. After that though, brotherhood would be the better anime. They're both good in their own right, but there really is no comparing them. Watch 'em both or watch one, this is one not to miss. 9.5/10

.hack -This is the series that SAO and Log Horizon want to be - and this came first. Seriously, the premise is the same but just... better, more fresh I think. Virtual reality MMO, things happen to people in real life, etc. I'll be honest, I haven't seen all of this - there are 4 series of it I believe, but it's on my to do list. .hack was the first and is probably going to stay the best out of this trio of MMO anime. Since I haven't seen it all, I'll give this a ??/10 with a positive outlook.

Devil May Cry - Oh yes, there's an anime for this. 13 episodes, same voice actors as in DMC3 and 4, if you like DMC you'll like this. Lady makes and appearance as well a couple of times, which was nice to see too. Don't remember much about this, only that dante doesn't go devil mode. 7/10.
User avatar #212 - golnax (11 hours ago) [-]
Monster - This anime is really fucking good. How good you ask? HBO has been pondering with the idea of making this a live action series, that's how good. Monster takes place in Germany and is about a young and upcoming genius of surgery who one fateful night saves the life of a child rather than a politician. This child, as it turns out, was a killer though and went on to kill more afterwards. Once the surgeon found out, he made it his mission to end the life of that boy to make up for all the lives he indirectly took. A masterful anime with a downright chilling villain at times, this is a slightly longer anime that I blazed through and I'm sure you will too. 10/10, heil Johann.

GunXSword - Another little known anime, GunXSword takes place on a planet called the Endless Illusion and follows a couple of wayward vagabonds Vaan and Wendy as they hunt for The Claw, a man who took Vaan's one and only love and Wendy's brother from them. This is a bit of a light hearted show... at first, right up until around episode 15 or so I think. Lots of laughs, plenty of action, it's a fun adventure to follow up to the end. 8/10, DAMN IT'S SPICY!

I'm starting to run out of anime to list, so I'll finish this off with a fully dedicated post to two of my favorites - Neon Genesis Evangelion and Code Geass, one for each. These are the big wigs in my book, and I'll explain why shortly.
#217 - golnax (10 hours ago) [-]
Neon Genesis Evangelion - Now this is an anime that I often find you either love it or you hate it, and I fall into the former group. There are so many reasons to love this anime, but let me point to what drew me to it at first, first. When the creator of Neon Genesis was making the show, he was diagnosed with clinical depression. Like, full on suicidal thoughts clinical depression, and for the first half of the anime he was on medication to help deal with that. The second half, he drops the meds. And it shows.

The premise of the show is that 10 years in the past, beings known as Angels appeared and almost systematically destroyed everything in their path. When they had passed, humanity decided to make a contingency plan should they ever return, thus the EVA program was born, in which titanic robotic beings that need to be piloted by 14 year old children. Now, 10 years later, the Angels are back and it's up to Shinji and two others to stop them from destroying it all again.

Now, without spoiling anything, let me just touch up on how the creator's depression showed as the show progressed. At first, it's easy fighting off the Angels and balancing every day life. But as the Angels keep coming it keeps getting harder and harder, and Shinji's mental state slowly deteriorates as does everyone else's with the threat of annihilation hanging over them. In case it wasn't obvious, religion is a theme in this anime and was a point of tension for the creator, hence his inclusion of it in the show.

I really can't stress enough how you can just see the creator's depression manifest as the show goes on. There was a point in episode 19 when the EVA goes out of control that flat startled me because of how different it was to everything else thus far in animation and in violence. This anime is a first hand look into the mind of a clinically depressed person, and it's a thrilling experience at that. 10/10, get in the damn robot Shinji.
#220 - golnax (10 hours ago) [-]
Code Geass - Lelouch of the Rebellion R1 & R2 - Where do I even begin? This is by far my favorite anime of all time thus far, and I can't see anything replacing it any time soon. There are so many things I love about this anime, the music, the animation, the characters, the story, the pure emotion - and I cannot stress this enough, this is an emotion fueled anime. There is anger in Lelouch's voice, sorrow in Suzaku's, rage and conflict and depression and disappointment - I've never seen so many character convey such a wide array of emotions over the course of 50 episodes in an anime before and so welly executed.

Lelouch Lamporogue, also known as Lelouch Vi Britannia, is an exiled prince of the Holy Britannian empire. He and his crippled sister Nunally, abandoned by their father and their country, now live in Area 11 - the formerly known country as Japan, taken over by the Empire 8 years prior. When Lelouch gets mixed up in some rebel terrorist activity, he is given a godlike power from a mysterious woman - the absolute ability to compell anyone to do anything for him. With this power and nearly a lifetime filled with hatred for his country, Lelouch sets out to destroy the Holy Britannian empire and recreate the world into a kinder, more gentler place for his sister.

Now, there are a couple of things I'd like to point out in all of this. This premise, the Holy Britannian empire, and even the Knightmare Frames, the show's version of a gundamn - this could have been our reality had two things in history been different. Had the Dark Ages never occurred, we would have the technology now to make Knightmare's a reality, and had Britain won the war for American Independence, the USA and likely the rest of the Americas would be the Britannian Empire as it was still known back all those years ago.

That in itself is incredible, that we could have lived in this reality instead of our own, aside from the supernatural of course. More in the next post.
User avatar #225 - golnax (10 hours ago) [-]
A small clip and slight spoiler. Helps illustrate the rant.

Lelouch Kills Charles and Marianne (English Dub)

Throughout the two series R1 and R2 (round 1 and 2), several themes are thoroughly explored that are controversial at best. Racism, oppression, political corruption, family affairs, military duty, honor, the ends justifying the means, the list goes on and on and on. The show was almost taken off of the air at one point when in it one of the characters, Meena, is shown masturbating in a dark room on the corner of a table to a picture of on the the Britannian princesses Euphemia. The fact that Code Geass had the balls to show a character's lesbian sexuality in such a risque way just goes to show how unafraid the producers were when going into this show. And the result?

For not skimming on the details, for not taking out the human element that is quite frankly almost if not entirely missed in several of the anime I've listed before this, Code Geass creates characters that almost feel alive in how human and emotional they are. Everyone is important in their own way in this show, everyone contributes to the story. There are no useless characters, no one is there just to be there. It all fits towards an emotional end game, a whole that is uncompromising in it's message - "You can't change the world without getting your hands dirty."

I'll stress it one more time, emotion is what makes this anime so good. Strip away layers of the show, the gundam aspects, the drama, the plot even and what you're left with is almost child like in its emotional values. A son abandoned by his father and forced to take care of his sister on his own, that is the core of this anime and the very soul of its nature. Neon Genesis displayed raw depression, Code Geass displays the resulting emotions of a child abandoned and practically destroyed. Infinity/10, I can find no flaws with this anime no matter how hard I might try, no matter how many times I watch, it's still by far my favorite anime of all time.
#124 - rdunc (14 hours ago) [-]
wow i really appreciate the effort man, i'll keep this bookmarked for later. do you have any thoughts on the ones i listed up in my previous comment? theres a bunch i want to watch on my laptop e.g. evangelion, code geass, cowboy bebop etc but im not really into watching stuff on the internet if i can help it, hence why i wanted to know if the netflix ones were any good. i recently watched akira online and it detracted from the it so much that i had to watch it on a laptop screen rather than my actual tv
User avatar #227 - golnax (10 hours ago) [-]
I haven't actually seen any of those anime unfortunately, so I can't give you my opinion on any of them. I can understand you're not wanting to watch it on your laptop. The last time I checked, Code Geass, Cowboy Bebop, and Neon Genesis were all on netflix as was Eden of the East, Death Note, Elfen Lied and several others that I listed.

Speaking of which, if you look up a bit you'll find that I've given you several more anime recommendations as well as an in depth review (Or as in depth as I can get with 2000 characters per post) on both Neon Genesis Evangelion and Code Geass. Happy anime watching~
#239 - rdunc (2 hours ago) [-]
yeah theyre on the american netflix but as usual we get shafted in the UK. i'd buy crunchyroll but we dont even get that despite them saying they were planning to bring it here over two years ago. it seems like most of the other anime netflix has sucks because the few people ive spoke to havent heard of them/ never watched them, and the reviews arent too great either. i should just bite the bullet and watch them online, but the picture quality tends to suffer so much. do you have links for places to watch these? thanks
User avatar #242 - golnax (1 hour ago) [-]
Yes, as a matter of fact I do. I could link you to each show individually if you liked. Where would you want to start?
User avatar #179 - silentark (12 hours ago) [-]
Just bear in mind with hellsing there's two versions, they both have the same characters in general, but the plot is different, hellsing ultimate is more canon with the manga and in my opinion, better. I might as well add on a couple, not to the detail as above though, no offense, but google them for more info.

Clannad- A slice of life (usually means a mostly realistic setting) anime about theirr relationship between two people from high school till afterwards (warning, this one will make even the manliest of manly men cry), great anime even if you're looking for something with less action and fighting.

Tora-dora- another slice of life anime worth the watch. About a guy with a scary face and an agressive pint-sized midget, good story with a few chuckles thrown in.

Spice and wolf- Fantasy set anime about the adventures of a travelling peddler and a wolf-goddess of the harvest, less on the violence but full of intrigue.

Black lagoon- probably heard of this one, a Quentin tarinteno inspired anime about a crew of misfit mercenaries in a lawless city, tons of guns violence and all that good stuff, another bonus is sony bought the production righs and only costs about half as much to buy a physical copy
User avatar #190 - silentark (11 hours ago) [-]
Fullmetal alchemist- Another of those 'everybody and his mom' type animes, deep plot, memorable characters with a bit of humor, just bear in mind that, like hellsing, theres two versions with brotherhood being more canon with the anime

Sword art online- another of those everybody ones. solid story set in an MMORPG turned death game, only real disappointment was the seasons ended rather spontaniously. Just bear in mind season 3 (gun gale online) hasn't been released in english yet.

Guilty crown- If you liked code geass, you will enjoy this one, rebel uprisings, MC has special power, mystery female lead, etc.
User avatar #197 - silentark (11 hours ago) [-]
Girls und Panzer- about rival groups of schoolgirls partipating in competitions where groups of tanks face off against each other, they got their history on the tanks mostly spot on, but probably give it a miss if you're not a tank-nut

Darker than black- Gritty anime involving people with supernatural powers, albeit with a sometimes grisly cost (e.g. the first ep there's a guy who can defy gravity, but has to break his own fingers as compensation, or an opera singer with a sonic voice, but has to eat cigarettes after use), pretty damn worth looking into.

Bake/Nisemonogatari- a series getting to two full seasons and a few movies, about a previously vampire- possessed student and the supernatural, tons of intrigue and lots of accurate refences to jap lore, worth the watch if you like supernatural flicks.

Fairy tail- another large, mainstream anime made by shounen jump (one piece) about the (mis)adventures centered around a guild of slightly insane, overpowered mercenaries, personally havent watched past season 2 but so far story is what to expect from Jump and the fillers have given me a chuckle

Persona 4 the animation - I rarely recommend animes or movies based on games but this one is worth it. about a group of students fighting in an alternate world to prevent murders in theirs, worth the watch and the two or three fillers didn't kill it.
User avatar #199 - silentark (11 hours ago) [-]
Last couple
Melancoly of haruhi suzumiya- likely heard of this one, two seaons, a movie and a spin off. about the main character and high school with a nonsensical girl who has the habit of making her delusoins real. Fun to watch, just beware there is a six episode black hole, you can skip episodes 13-18.

soul collector- set in a colledge where a controller and their anthromorphic weapons collect he souls of evil beings, interesting art style, zany characters and good action sequences across four seasons.

Lucky star- kinda love or hate, slice of life involving the random daily life of four schoolgirls, no real plot, but I found one of the main characters a bit TOO easy to identify with.

Chrome shelled regios- set in a world overrun with air polluting monsters and the only inhabitable places are giant, walking domed cities, good story with plenty of action

While I could keep going i'm going to stop, i'm hungry, got crap to do and getting bored.
