Anime/Manga.

So anyone got any suggestions/favorites?

So far I’ve only really watched some of the really well known ones and I’d like to have some more to watch.

Also bonus points if you can get some creepy/spooky ones for October.

Animes:

Bleach (All but last 7 episodes or so I like watch in blocks.)

Naruto (Watched like 120 episodes or so, may start it up again.)

Gurren Lagann

Code Geass

Gundam Wing

Zero No Tsukaima

Nichijou

Berserk (Would recommend the Manga over the anime)

DBZ Kai

Sword Art Online (Just started pretty awesome.)

Deathnote

Utawarerumono

Blue Gender

Hellsing Ultimate

Manga:

Berserk

Corpse Party: Blood Covered (Not even sure how I got into it)


(Kei) #2

Anime

Gurren Lagann

Cowboy Bebop

Samurai Champloo

Guilty Crown

Birdy the Mighty

Soul Eater (Great for October. Not “scary”, but is Halloween themed (kinda))


#3

Anime:
Full Metal Alchemist
Full Metal Panic (no relation whatsoever to Full Metal Alchemist)

(Kei) #6

YES!
Its an awesome series.


#7

If you want to be afraid of spirals for life read “Uzumaki”.
My all time favorite manga of all time is Bremen. Its unavailable in english, so you have to read the scanlations online. I reccomend it to everyone. You will not be dissapointed. Please please please please read it.


#8

dear lord the first 7 volumes of YUGIOH is awesome. It has nothing to do with the cards, this making it for all audiences. Still one of my favorites, as is Hikaru No Go. I to this day don’t understand Go xD

#11

Oh yes, I love that anime! Vash has got to be the coolest guy ever.


#12

Naruto Shippuden
Beelzebub (rip-roaring hilarious)

I don’t have much time to explore and get sucked into any more.


#13

The first 16 books of Dragon Ball were great. But then they started Dragon Ball Z and everything in my opinion went downhill from there…

My Japanese friend made watch Puella Magi Madoka Magica. I’ve never watched any other magical girl anime but I doubt many of them are like this one… It’s pretty dark and some parts creeped me out but I enjoyed it. Definitely worth a watch - it’s not that long anyway.


#15

I’ve heard of that show I should watch it too.

Also watched 4 or 5 episodes of Soul Eater and it’s pretty awesome.


#16

Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop, and FLCL are all great. Fullmetal Alchemist is pretty good, but if you watch it, be aware there are two different series: Fullmetal Alchemist, and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Both start off with more-or-less the same story, but they diverge significantly partway through. FMA created an original storyline when it caught up with the manga it was based on, and Brotherhood follows the manga to the end. Both are pretty good, and different enough to watch both if you enjoy one.

Of stuff not already mentioned:
Rurouni Kenshin
.hack//SIGN
Durarara!!
Ghost in the Shell
The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi (though it’s not at all action-oriented like a lot of what you have watched; if you do try it, you might want to look up “Endless Eight” when you get to that part to see what it is, because you might want to skip those episodes)

I think Bleach manga is considerably better than the anime, especially after the Soul Society arc (where the Bount arc starts in the anime). Soul Eater also has a pretty good manga, from which the anime diverges about halfway through, so it might be worth reading in addition to watching.


#17

Yeah I may have to read through Bleach sometime.

And I’ve heard Ghost in the Shell is pretty much a classic.

I’ll have to look at all of these and start making a list. xD
