Getting back to watching anime
 
Lately from this new semester as a Senior I have been worrying way too much and stressing myself out that I haven't really got into anything the last one was Katekyo Hitman Reborn. And it was all good until I finished it and I couldn't bring myself to watch anything else.. I lost a little of my fangirl self, lately. :(

I stopped watching Bleach and Naruto long ago and I feel maybe I should start again or with something new..any Suggestions?

MeoTwister5 2011-12-21 00:04

Any particular genre or other preferences?

Flower 2011-12-21 00:15

Also wondering what length of eps you enjoy watching. 12-13 your speed for a series, or you can go for a series in the 70s or 90s eps wise, etc.

I'll just toss out a few excellent titles from various genres. The number of episodes is in parentheses:

Seirei no Moribito (26) - fantasy drama set in a fictitious Asian empire
Nodame Cantabile (23 + sequels) - college-aged professional music students begin their careers and look for love
Claymore (26) - beautiful women use giant swords to kill demonic beasts
Welcome to the NHK! (24) - a young woman offers to "cure" a young man of his hikikomori ways
Baccano! (16) - American gangsters in the Prohibition era encounter immortals

If you're open to longer series, here are two:

Monster (74) - Japanese neurosurgeon practicing in Germany encounters the remnants of the recently-fallen Communist regimes
Cross Game (50) - high-school baseball players learn about life, death, love, and friendship

Fairytail?

Masuzu 2011-12-21 09:49

Are you looking for more recent ones?

How about Steins;Gate then, but if you want something a little lighter how about Haganai?

CMHerrera 2011-12-21 11:53

Genre is more action, something with a long storyline. Supernatural, Fantasy kinda thing.

Seirei no Moribito and steins;Gate sound interesting I'll look into it.

Full Metal Alchemist - All around well done except lack of closure at the end.
Ergo Proxy - Cyberpunk themed and a bit hard to get into.
Texhnolyze - Quite similar to Ergo Proxy in terms of a setting but more action.

If long storylined fantasy and action genres are your thing you might give The 12 Kingdoms (45 eps) and Kemono no Soujo Erin (50 eps) a try if you have not already.

Thanks :D I haven't seen them.

If you're looking for slice-of-life and comedy try Sket Dance.

Steins;Gate is also good if you want to try something... different? imo.

Angel Beats is good as well. Although it is a bit of a tear jerker. :P

Angel Beats? Well if its a tear jerker then I can see myself crying alot... XD Thanks for the suggestions.

Well here is the list, though it is late and I don't feel like describing each one. Just type the names in google or myanimelist and you will get the description. However, shows with a * are of higher priority in my opinion:

Ao No Exorcist
Baccano* - a bit more modern but excellent story telling
Berserk*
Claymore*
D.Gray Man
Fate/Stay Night
- it has a prequel named Fate/Zero which is 10 times better. But if you watch prequel first, you'll kill all enjoyment in this series
Full Metal Panic - a good/ funny Mecha show
FMA(both seasons)*
Ga-Rei Zero*
Inuyasha
Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica*
Mai HiME
Nurarihyon no Mago
Soul Eater
Sword of the stranger*
Tales of the Abyss
Toaru Majutsu no Index


Hopefully you'll find something of your interest.

Try Darker Than Black it's got action, supernatural and fantasy. Just the way you like it. However, it has only 2 seasons: 1st season- 25 eps 2nd season-12 eps
Death Note is also a suggestion,that is if you haven't seen it. It still fits your criteria and is 37 eps long.

Hope it helped :D

MUAHAHAHAHAHA 2012-07-30 12:24

Old thread, peeps

Tiger & Bunny: meant for people who don't watch that much anime and are watching foreign (American) films.

I know. I just can't help helping. There's no way i'm letting a thread go dead. :p Back to the topic....you saw Death Note already? Well...i expected that. It's a challenge i am willing to accept. Try this: The Vision of Escaflowne (or just) Escaflowne. It's got action, romance, adventure, fantasy but is only 26 episodes long and is kind of old but once you get past that fact, you're good to go.:)

P.S. I know you like bishies and there are some in this show. xD
