Favourite Anime/Manga(s)?

Recommended Posts

Hmm, can't say I've come across any BL that I actually like, but I don't really know much besides the popular ones like junjou and sekai ichi. Anything you would recommend, @aro_elise?

My rather obvious choice for today is Boku no Hero Academia.

It's a battle shounen series about a school for heroes in a world where most people have "Quirks" aka superpowers.

I like the character designs, the music is nice and it's was overall a alright experience, though I have to say I didn't enjoy it all the time.

I don't really care to much about some characters and outright hate others and they completely ruin every scene they are in for me. I don't particular care for the story at this point and it has a rather generic feel to it at times.

If you like battle shounen series and quirky characters though, I can really recommend this series and it is definitely worth a shot.

 

(Second page, yay)

Aaaaaahh so many things to say, so little time !

I'm an anime trash, so I've seen my fair share of anime xD

 

But if I have to choose, well :

 

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o: it's a 2 seasons anime following a boy who is sent to a fantasy world following his death, forming a dysfunctional party with a goddess, a wizard, and a crusader to fight against monsters. It's hilarious and  spews out pure joys and rainbows. A totally goofball kind of anime. 

 

Nichijou TV. This will be simple : there is No. Fucking. Storyline.Or.Plot.At.All. Well, it primarily focuses on the daily lives of a trio of childhood friends, whose stories soon intertwine with the young genius Hakase Shinonome, her robot caretaker Nano, and their talking cat Sakamoto.  You never know what’s going to happen next, be it a humorous dialogue scene, a fast paced action sequence, an amusing random still image or a hilarious but completely unrelated skit. This show is my jam when i'm depressed.

 

Psycho Pass :  " In the 22nd century, Japan enforces the Sibyl System, an objective means of determining the threat level of each citizen by examining their mental state for signs of criminal intent, known as their Psycho-Pass. Inspectors uphold the law by subjugating, often with lethal force, anyone harboring the slightest ill-will; alongside them are Enforcers, jaded Inspectors that have become latent criminals, granted relative freedom in exchange for carrying out the Inspectors' dirty work."  You add a criminal mastermind, super great protagonists development and relationships, with a lot of commentary on human nature, the natures of societies, law and governance, good and evil, and a top notch soundtrack. Then, you mix all of this and you'll have Psycho Pass.

OMG yes!

I have this sitting on my shelf. I loved it. So many log cakes. It is like a sweeter less insane version of Excel Saga (which I saw first so I compare everything to Excel Saga). 

and there is a plot! sort of. She want to go to school, she starts going to school!

update: after i finished free! (really liked it) i watched dramatical murder (not really my thing but if you like sci-fi stuff i recommend it) and yuri on ice--loved it.  i was told yuri and victor were together in it, which turned out to be...not exactly true, but i'm holding out for the next season.  anyway, if you haven't seen it yet, watch it.  it's going to be hard to top, for me.  i'll continue to update.

If you're looking for a really weird random comedy anime, Hetalia is one about personified countries (the english dub version is terrible and the first 4 seasons are...meh. Also each episode is 5 minutes, including the ending). The fandom is crazy. They/we even have a religion.

If you like supernatural (?) things, action, mystery, and comedy, I reccomend Bungou Stray Dogs. All of the characters are named after famous writers (most are Japanese but some aren't, like Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, John Steinback, etc) and their "abilities"/powers are named after the title/character/plot of their famous book. Almost every single one of them is good-looking except one but I don't even think he's human. Not reccomended for people who don't like blood, but there's not as much as Tokyo Ghoul.

 

wheeeeee

Please tell me I hallucinated this post because it's either that or I've fallen into a portal back to 2009

 

Anyway, as my username and icon suggests, I am a big fan of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. (I've read all of 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and some of 5.) But believe it or not, my favorite anime is actually Fullmetal Alchemist! I've been a fan since early 2009, when I was 11 years old. I run fma-facts on Tumblr, and the only forms of FMA I have yet to experience are some of the Japan-exclusive video games and books, although I have played the GBA games and the first Wii game. I'm a firm believer that both anime sucked in comparison to the manga and I could go on for ages about how Brotherhood ruined a lot of things, but I love all forms of FMA, and I also believe that anyone who would seriously tell people not to watch anime A because they prefer anime B is an idiot who hates fun. Seriously.

Aside from that, I love Hikaru no Go and Meganebu, and other series I've at least partially read/seen include Death Note, Soul Eater, xxxHolic, Boku no Hero Academia, Hunter x Hunter, Tokyo Mew Mew, Rose of Versailles, One Punch Man, and, unfortunately, Rurouni Kenshin. And, yes, I will admit I was really into Hetalia back in the day... I still love it in some ways, but I've Learned since then, so I don't really talk about it as much, lmao.

also Fullmetal Alchemist! I haven't watched the original anime (though I'm meaning to) but I've watched brotherhood and managed to slooooowly collect all the manga which I love to bits. Also Yonen Buzz which is this weird manga about some guys in a band that I honestly can't explain my attachment to? I also can't find the fourth volume in English which is sad, but I love the art style and there's a lot of really good music recommendations in the manga (for instance that's how I got into shonen knife)
