I didn't see this topic before because I was at an anime convention.

I'm such a nerd.

Anyway, QuickTidal is right about Rebuild. I'd already watched the series of Evangelion and the End Of movie, but just saw Rebuild parts 1 and 2 at the con this weekend. They're awesome. Especially on the big screen.

One of the first animes I watched was Elfen Lied. It was instrumental in dispelling the idea that animated stuff is for kids.

I also really like Ergo Proxy. It's weird, but good.

I just saw Paprika and loved it. Trippy and creepy.

Cowboy Bebop is one of my favorites. Has lighter moments, but can get really serious. Samurai Champloo is from the same author I think? It's a bit lighter in tone most of the time.

Rurouni Kenshin is kinda hit or miss. It also kinda loses steam after the Shishio arc. The Samurai X OVA's are amazing, though.

Fullmetal Alchemist has its up and down moments. It can be a bit... kiddy... at times, but parts can be really dark.

Just started watching Gundam Wing, and so far it's really good.

Anything Miyazaki is great, in my experience.
Permaban or bust.

Can I haz Telorast & Curdle plushies?

Alright, now I'm annoyed.

Two full 'seasons' of the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. And one movie (which, incidentally, WAS FREAKING GOOD - I could probably gush for half a page, but that would involve copious spoilers as to make said gushing nigh-unreadable to most of you). And now...now? NOW I AM OUT OF HARUHI SUZUMIYA TO CONSUME. FUCK.

I'm seriously in a spiraling withdrawal cycle right now. It was pretty bad after I finished WHR, and that was partially averted by re-watching things a lot, and getting my favourite seasons of Doctor Who to watch. But now...now I'm screwed. I mean, seriously, I have exams in less than a week, and my time is completely taken up by either watching individual tMoHS episodes again, or cruising the TV Tropes page for the series. While listening to the collected soundtrack/character image songs. And IT'S NOT ENOUGH. I WANT MOAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dammit! Where is season three?!?!??! Where are the translated light novels BEYOND THE SCOPE OF THE ANIME? They're like...only just up to Disappearance in novel-form! ARGH!

This is killing me. And I'm trying to balance it out with more WHR/tMoHS rewatching...but this is really distracting me worse than if I had another season to watch or something. Procrastination OVERWHELMING.

Fuck.

@silencer. im gonna play devils advocate and recommend rorouni kenshin. Both movies will entertain you. Try sword of the stranger while your at it. Its a good example of fresh story telling and very fluid animation. Samurai champloo is also worth a mention in that regard. Cant think of a better mix really. Samurai theme aside you could also enjoy ghost in the shell, but thats really a hit or miss show. Lastly canaan. I hate the support characters but canaan herself is quite an original and likable character. All these are finished extremely well. They should cut the edge off while u wait :-)

I'm trying to pace myself at the moment, which isn't too hard with work getting in the way still I can see your predicament I was like that after I watched Fruits Basket all those years ago. You could give Death Note a try, it has a completely different feel but it is extremely good.

Ah, I feel your pain, been through that on a couple series. My Baccano! withdrawal was even worse, though, because they never made more than a season! All that potential set up and possible follow-on material and I *knew* I would never see it. -_-

Tried watching Blue Gender today, but the American media castrated it (took out all of the mature content) and then dubbed it.

Also I'm going to confer with my younger brother (who is my go-to guy for animus and mangos) and between the two of us we'll try to compose a list of what's not awful and what's setting the woman's rights movement back a hundred years. (quick tester, there's a 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% that is it's set in a high school it's atrocious tripe, and yet there's more than one school-setting animu that isn't terrible. THAT'S HOW MANY THERE ARE)
Hello, soldiers, look at your mage, now back to me, now back at your mage, now back to me. Sadly, he isnít me, but if he stopped being an unascended mortal and switched to Sole Spice, he could smell like heís me. Look down, back up, where are you? Youíre in a warren with the High Mage your cadre mage could smell like. Whatís in your hand, back at me. I have it, itís an acorn with two gates to that realm you love. Look again, the acorn is now otataral. Anything is possible when your mage smells like Sole Spice and not a Bole brother. Iím on a quorl.

personaly if you're not sure what to watch, id try death note. People who aren't into anime love it, so you can't really go wrong.

Honestly, I got so completely and utterly frustrated waiting for new seasons of stuff to come out, I just started reading the translated manga. Which, I discovered, I can read conveniently on my phone from anywhere.

UNFORTUNATELY - this means that I am now caught up on all of those. And most of them are monthly issues (and some of them are even less frequent).

If you've never experienced this feeling before, imagine for the moment, that instead of a two-volume wrap up for the series, he put out 15-30 pages a month. NOW THAT'S FRUSTRATION.

Also, Death Note is enjoyed by people who don't like anime (which does not mean that it's something you'd enjoy if you DO watch anime).
I enjoy anime, and find Death Note to be a terrible show. That is, of course, a single data point.

Oh, I've been through it before. Heck, this is the second time in two months. And then there has always been that issue of Awesomeness Withdrawal from various other things in the past.

I considered the manga angle, but as I said, this stuff is taken from Light Novels, and they are only up to the same place in the English translation of those as the anime. UGH. I think the one that releases on the 7th of July mostly hasn't been covered in the anime, so I might get that, but in the meantime I screwed for this particular series, unless I seriously brush up on my Japanese (I'm thinking a year's worth of high school is not enough to let me read Japanese, let alone enjoy it while doing so! XD).

At least with Witch Hunter Robin, I KNOW there will be no season three. It's over. Aside from a now-almost-certainly-dead live action adaption rumour, the end was the end, and there's no manga to go with it, either. With Haruhi Suzumiya, I know there is at least enough content for another four seasons!




Anyway, I digress. Bitching is not the purpose of this thread (though, come to think of it.... :)). Thanks for the recco's guys, I'll find one on Tropes and go from there. I've been told to read the Death Note manga (by a friend who is very into manga), but AS is right in that non-anime-watchers liking it doesn't mean anime watchers will. -_- Of course, I'm only barely in the 'watcher' category - though we can safely say I am clearly very obsessive about the shows I do watch. :)

(Illybro here) A month? You're lucky you get pages a month, reliably. The author of Berserk, one of if not the best manga, tends to have gaps in his issues. Like "Out May 21st, next chapter whenever! (it's September)" to the point where people joke he spends more time playing Idolmaster than drawing huge elaborate two page spreads that embarrass most other authors out there. It's been going for twenty years, and it's still great. Read it.

(Illy returns) I've read Berserk as well, and DW can go suck it, Berserk is great. Extremely NSFW but that's only a marginal issue.

i said people who arent big into anime love it. That doesnt mean people who are into anime hate it.... Its a series that has a good reception. The fans are retards but you shouldnt let a bad fanbase get in the way of something that is genuinely good.
@stormy, what was it about DN you hated?
