Requesting some nice animes to watch.
 
I am going to download a lot of animes this week, but I'm not sure what to download. Can everyone list their favorite animes here.

Give you an idea, I love comedy. Like Seto no Hanayome, I laughed so hard. Give me some anime suggestions, I'll download them and watch through it!!

KholdStare 2008-03-23 21:36

#4: Elfen Lied (10.0)
#5: SaiKano (9.7)
---
#6: 5 Centimeters per Second (9.4)

^ Those ones.

And for "funny", I'd say Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu! is one of the funniest anime I've ever seen, though you have to watch the first season to get a lot of the jokes (but the first season is good too, it's a mecha action/romantic comedy type thingy.)
Lucky Star is also really funny if you can get most of the jokes and get around the 6-minute food conversation and the overly loli 18-year-olds.
eh. Hayate the Combat Butler.

andromeda0201 2008-03-24 08:17

Second FMP Fumoffu, it was hilarious!

Also, you might want to try Midori no Hibi, Lovely Complex, Ouran High School Host Club, Azumanga Daioh , Gintama, School Rumble, Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu

mcruz1014 2008-03-24 08:31

Thirding FMP! Fumoffu, seconding the entire FMP! series as a whole. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Clannad also supplied me with a lot of laughs, although they aren't comedy first animes.

Ichihara Asako 2008-03-24 08:48

If you want stupidly funny:

Shinobuden
Muteki Kanban Musume
Yakitate Japan
School Rumble
I second FMP Fumoffu+++ though you really should watch the first season to truly understand how absurd it is.
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
Cromartie High School (Though this is hit and miss, some people hate it, others love it.)

Plenty more, but there's a solid start for comedy gold.

AuditionEX 2008-03-24 11:49

Actually, I can never laugh so hard when I watched Seto no Hanayome.. :/

But I can recommend you much closest like

Minami-ke
NHK ni Youkoso!
Midori no Hibi
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei [12 episodes]

Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei [12 episodes] 6 are subbed

AznTri-Angel 2008-03-24 14:01

Thank you for all your replies. I have seen some of them, but too lazy to write out the list xD. Here's my thoughts:

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien - I had watched 10 or so episodes on it. It was interesting in the beginning, but it kind of got too dramatic for me. I dropped it, when the male lead had to pretend for the girl back in the past. If it's good from there on, tell me and i'll continue it.

Cardcaptor Sakura - Watched it. Great series actually, even though it was girlish xD.

Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal - Again watched this, but I loved it. I watched the whole series and the OVAs.

Elfen Lied - Stopped after a while, when youtube decided to get rid of it =/. Anyways I might continue this if people think it's worth watching.

SaiKano - How good is this anime?

5 Centimeters per Second - Is this worth watching? The summary doesn't appeal to me.

Haibane Renmei - Never seen this, the summary sounds iffy. Tell me more about it :D.

Air - Watched like 3 episodes and stopped. Couldn't bring myself to watch it.

Bokurano - Sounds interesting, is it a good series that's worth watching?

The Place Promised in Our Early Days - Sounds really interesting. Can anyone link me the torrent for this?

Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu! - Watched it, and all the FMP series. I loved it alot. Especially the part where he tries to train the football team. That was priceless, they dress up as bears and go hunting!!

Lucky Star - Watched up to episode 22 or so, then stopped. Couldn't bring myself to finish it!! I'll finish it when I have time.

Hayate the Combat Butler. - I'm actually currently watching this anime.

Midori no Hibi - Need more opinions on this, The summary sounds awkward.

Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu - How good is this. The drawings don't really convince me to watch it.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - Currently downloading, but I can't find a good torrent for this. All the torrents I have were slow. Anyone can link me to a good one?

Your loss.

No. It's licensed.

Quote:

One of the funniest animes ever made until they leave the jungle near the end.

Quote:

Baccano! - Describe more of this to me =x.
Mixes 30's US gangsters and alchemy. Anything more is a spoiler. One of the best series of 2007.

Quote:

Hidamari Sketch - Little middle schoolers, doesn't look interesting.
Actually they're in high school (an arts academy). A fun, cute show drawn in an abstract, occasionally psychedelic style. A prototypical "slice-of-life" show since hardly anything actually happens in any episode. One episode, for instance, concerned the main character having a fever, staying home from school, and being comforted by her friends. This episode alone is worth watching for the rendering of Yunocchi's fever dreams.

Quote:

Kare Kano - Is this good?
The ending and the artwork are controversial, but overall I liked this show.

Quote:

REC - Doesn't really appeal to me.
Again, your loss.


There are a lot of shows in my signature that aren't on your list. Perhaps one of them will tickle your fancy. If you're looking for comedies, try Moyashimon or Nodame Cantabile.

Miko Miko 2008-03-24 14:45

Maybe Negima or Chobits might suit your tastes...

well you could give those a try. ^_^

Yes x 3

You don't watch 5 cm for the plot really, the presentation and direction is just stunningly beautiful and heartfelt.

I understand that for some series, the drama is just too much for me to handle and I end up taking a break. However, I thought that Kimi ga Nozomu Eien's drama was well paced, and that it's worth it to finish the series. Of course, our opinions might differ, but since it's my favorite anime, I will recommend it with bias.

If you don't like it until wherever you stopped, then chances are you won't like the rest of it.

This is one of the best anime I've seen. It may not be my favorite, but it is the most meaningful second only to Haibane Renmei.

The same director directed this and The Place Promised in Our Early Days, so you could watch the latter first, then see if you will want to watch this one. The summary won't matter, since the styles of both are the same. But yes, this is a good series, but not one for casual viewing.

This series I won't recommend you. If you don't like Air, then you won't like Haibane Renmei.

You seem to not like Clannad also, which is also by KyoAni, so it seems that you just don't like fantasy/drama.

Well, it's not going to be a very "fun" watch, but I think it's worth watching.

As said above, it's licensed, so we can't directly link you to any website. You seem to know how to stream anime, so...take it from there.

I suggest skipping SaiKano and watching Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu. They're similar story-wise, except Iriya does it better even though it's much shorter. Iriya also has one of the best confessions in anime and an ending that doesn't depress the hell out of you. :p

AznTri-Angel 2008-03-24 18:45

I'll watch both of those. The UFO one i watched one episode I believe.

Edit: What program do you use to view your videos, ex. like replayer, jet audio, windows media player ,etc. Somehow I downloaded ef a tale of memories, and my screen is frozen, but the voice is playing, or sometimes the screen is white, and the voice is moving, anyone know how to solve this? The videos are .avi, that's all i can supply.
