Standard anime answers of:
Deathnote,
Naruto,
Bleach (which i know is bad, but watched it for the hype about it)
I like basilisk as a short anime

Im currently watching one piece and am loving it. about 300ish episodes in and it’s really getting good now.


(Randal Octagonapus) #6

I think I have to give One Piece my top spot, been watching it religiously every Sunday for about 5 years now and never not been entertained.

Favourite short anime is definitely Afro Samurai too.

Big fan of:

Deathnote
Code Geass (< this)
Naruto
Attack on Titan


(Mark Dornan) #7

Grave of fireflies
My neighbour Totoro
Akira
Ninja Scroll
Afro Samurai

Probably never watched 5 different ones. Does Dragonball Z count? I’m struggling to think of any others I have watched.

Struggled through Deathnote, the “first” season was good but it got shite when the intros switched which is what I can only assume is the next season.

Top 5 Animes

Akira.


(Scott Miles) #10

Cant decide on five but my favourites are:

Code Geass
FMA:Brotherhood
Bakemonogatari
SNAFU
Psycho-Pass
Toradora
TTGL
Hyouka

Halfway through Durarara!! atm pretty good so far.

I genuinely don’t like Naruto and Bleach, I guess they’re alright as gateway anime though.

Tears everywhere.


(Matt) #12

Literally can’t watch the intro to grave of the fireflies without getting emotional


(Mark Dornan) #13

If fireflies doesn’t choke you up , there’s something wrong with you.


(Sanchez ) #14

Bleach, never used to read it until the anime stopped .


(Gavin Rainey) #15

Afro Samurai is uber indeed, great music by the RZA!

GITS is cool too.

Anyone watched Ergo Proxy?


(Adam) #16

I still haven’t gotten around to watching Afro Samurai. I dunno why, everything about it looks great, I’ll probably get on it after I’ve finished Kill La Kill.


(Josh) #17

I have watched afro samurai, I preferred the first to resurrection.


(Richard Bowman) #18

I don’t watch too much anime but I do really like what I have watched so far. I kind of just rely on what my mate tells me to watch as he really likes it. So far my favourites have been, in no order -

Gundam Wing
Dragon Ball Z
Attack on Titan
Ghost in the Shell
Cowboy Beebop
Fairy Tale

I think that is all I have watched, can’t WAIT for Attack on Titan to start up again, it is some seriously awesome stuff.


(Blake) #19

Going to start watching FMA:Brotherhood…

So what are the best animes so far this year? I need some new action/seinen to watch


(Adam) #20

You watched Kill La Kill yet?

I’m getting pretty behind on anime myself to be honest. Haven’t watched anything new in ages.
