What happenend to all the high quality Anime?
 
This is what I like:

Death Note

Code Geass

Hikaru No Go

Samurai Champloo

Fate/Zero

Any recommendations? Seriously, it seems like their just releasing animes now to just release them...

NoemiChan 2012-12-23 23:17

Just thought what animes that might be close to what you have set as examples plus the "high Quality thing"..

Btooom!
Code Gease Akito The Exiled
*ongoing OVA
Helling OVAs *ongoing?
Dance in the Vampire Bund
Ergo Proxy
Guilty Crown: Lost Christmas OVA
Muv-Luv Alternative Total Eclipse
Psycho Pass


High Quality Animation, IMHO depends on....

1. The Company making it.

2. The Budget

3. The Director's Skills

Heh heh. Watch Shigurui and Texhnolyze.

These two shows weren't released just because. Watch them.

Eragon 2012-12-24 01:24

Instead of looking at new shows why don't you search the old ones?
Anywho,
Berserk - pretty much the best show.
Baccano - From the creators of Samurai Champloo
Monster
Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Human memory sucks and people don't remember the ton of forgettable eroge adaptations that was being made at the same time as death note and code geass.


Anyways:
Psycho pass ,Phantom requiem for the phantom,Madoka Magica ( all by the writer of fate/zero)
Zetsuen no tempest
Lupin III: woman named fujiko mine
Shiki
Shin Sekai Yori
Chihayafuru
Michiko to Hatchin
Jormungand
And yeah in the "classics" there's always Monster

Yeh, try to check some oldies.

You seem to be more into darker stories so try the following:

Aoi Bungaku Series - set of small series, some better than others. First 4 episodes give a bit of a Death Note vibe because of designs and animation.

Baccano! - great action series with well thought out story. A simple train robbery turns into a real treat.

Berserk - good oldie with interesting character developments and strategic battles. Anime is better than new movies.

Claymore - not the best of the best but pretty good/dark action with some entertaining characters and nice build ups.

FMA and FMA:Brotherhood are a given. One of the best well thought out stories and character developments. I usually hate MC but Edward is an exception.

I'm a bit reluctant with suggesting this one but still I would recommend to give Ga-Rei Zero a go. First episode blew my mind away and series had a good and strong build up towards a very memorable final. Besides you kind of have an anti MC just like in CG and DT.

Ghost Hunt - if you are fine with taking a break from action. Series are about ghosts and are set in detective kind of setting where characters investigate and solve the cases. Some arcs are better than others. My most favorite one is Bloodshed Labyrinth which is the darkest of the bunch. First arc is the weakest.

GTO - awesome comedy that covers some dark and daily topics of life.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica - don't let the cute art deceive you. Series are much darker than you think. At least watch first 3 episodes.

Monster - detective kind of setting. Surgeon saves a boy and later learns that he became a serial killer. Feeling responsible he tries to stop him and eventually ends up as suspect himself.

Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom - good series about assassins and underworld. Main character was robbed of his memory and given a choice: Kill and live or get killed.
Series are not afraid to show cruelty of a life as assassin aka MC is not the nicest person when it comes to work.

Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin - not action orientated but deep/dark series about hardships of group of friends who met in prison. Series follow their life while in prison and outside.

Shiki - by the same author as Ghost Hunt. Villagers suddenly start to die and epidemic is suspected but is it really the case?

Steins;Gate - gets better in second half, series focus on how small changes in the past can change everything in the future.

I didn't watch Hikaru No Go yet so don't know much about it except on focusing on a game. However, I think you could give Chihayafuru a go. This series are lighthearted and comedy orientated but main subject is karuta, a Japanese card game. Sounds boring but series managed to give this game depth and make it look very entertaining.

Hope this will help.


P.S. You could try to check an ongoing series Magi. Series have a lot of comedy but they also cover some dark themes and tend to do some things differently from stereotypes.

xxanimefan4_ever 2012-12-24 20:11

Watch welcome to the NHk. It was my favorite anime from 2006. I loved every minute of it. I totally know what you mean... I really am perplexed that people actually watch those shows

And I'm going to assume you alread saw haruhi

I highly recommend Hikaru No Go.

Saw Berserk. I tried watching Monster a long time ago but that anime scared the hell out of me.

Trust me, I remember the anime timeline of Code Geass and DN era clearly... there weren't any good animes besides those two. (Unless you're into The Melancholy of HS etc.)

They become more frequent; since 2010 my Anime list has jumped considerably in numbers and I'm certain I'm not the only one.

It's pretty arrogant to think that only shows that you like are 'high quality', or that only a certain genre are labelled as 'high quality'.

I would say it slides a bit more towards ignorance rather than arrogance, based off of the original post. IMO the OP uses the term 'high quality' too loosely. I am not sure if he is speaking of 'high quality' anime from his own point of view or from say, GenjiChan's point of view;

Because of this I have trouble giving an appropriate suggestion. I need some clarification on this, otherwise I would just suggest anime similar to Code Geass, Death Note and Hikaru no Go regardless of whether or not they are 'high quality' enough to fit the OP's standards.

Like the others I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "high quality." Unless one is attempting a purely objective categorization based upon a prexisting set of standards it is impossible to classify something as high or low quality without subjecting the article being classifed to one's personal bias.

A quick glance at the your list of titles that you suggests two things: 1.) That you primarily enjoys shows targeted at the shonen (young teenage boy) demographic, and 2.) That you're probably very familiar with Cartoon Network/Adult Swim. Only one of the titles you have listed has not aired on Cartoon Network/Adult Swim (Fate/Zero) and most likely never well.

Other users have given you an ample anime to select from so I won't retred that ground, but I would like to take a moment to address your claim that no other "high quality" anime was released in the "DN era" (i.e. 2007-2008). That is so ridiculously funny that it's laughable. I pulled up a list of shows released in 2007 and 2008 to refresh my memory of what I watched in those years, but I only needed a quick glance to spot numerous titles that are highly regarded:

Baccano!
Denno Coil
Gurren Lagann
Heroic Age
Mononoke
Nodame Cantabile
Saiunkoku Monogatari
Seirei no Moribito
Blade of the Immortal
Casshern Sins
Ga-rei
Hell Girl
Macross Frontier
Mnemosyne
Time of Eve
True Tears
Xam'd


That's not to say that your shows, Death Note and whatever else, are not good, but you may find that broadening your horizons will lead to better things.

That's pretty funny considering 05-07 is easily the best period of anime from the last 12 years.

Eragon 2012-12-25 06:57

People, try not to gang up on him.
And this is Suggestions thread, discussing merits/demerits of shows would go in another sub-forum.

Given the vagueness of the words he is using, I don't think it's wrong or off-topic to try correct him or/and ask for clarification.

Eragon 2012-12-25 07:22

Yes, of course it not wrong. Although, apart from first few posts this thread seems to be heading into discussion rather than suggestions.
Perhaps it needs to be moved as from his replies, it doesn't seem like he wants any suggestions.

MisaoFan 2012-12-25 07:29

Am I the only one who thinks this thread reminds me of another thread due to the OP's attitude ?

Anyways, I think I'm going to throw some of the following suggestions :
Zetman
Jormungand
Sword Art Online
BTOOOM!
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (the 2012 TV series)
Code: Breaker
Psycho-Pass

I second Rosalena's Modern Golden Age (2007-2008) titles.

iBeast 2012-12-25 10:43

Lol thank you all for your suggestions.

1. Graphics
2. Voiceovers
3. Storyline

These 3 things make up the quality of an "Anime".

You changed.

I loved every minute of it. I totally know what you mean.http://www.wengmj.com/a128.jpg

Vexx 2012-12-26 02:42

I think the arrogance of asserting sole judgement of "good" precludes me from offering much. This is why its hard to justify doing someone's research for them. It appears that the examples given are purely in the "anime designed for young boys" demographic anyway o.O.
