Minimal Filler.

Iím looking for either:

A) Anime that has finished along with its manga counterpart and followed the original creators story to the very end.
B) Anime that is on-going but loyally following the story of a concluded manga.
C) Anime that is following a still unfinished manga but by a team that is renowned for staying dedicated to the original creators work.

Conclusion: Least filler possible.

Genreís = Horror or Shounen.

Thanks!

I don't really read shounen, so I don't think I have anything else to recommend.

You know... manga often has filler also

...Are you bitter over Naruto?

What about original anime?
I mean fillers ARE what makes a shŰnen story...

Actually Yakitate Japan is the closest to "fillerless" shŰnen I can think of right now. But I haven't seen it all, so I'm not sure...

Monster, so I've heard. Not so much "horror" as it is Mystery.
Otherwise I can't think of anything. Well, besides cutting down on the elitism and taking a good look at the shonen genre as a whole.

Already watching, but thanks all the same.

Humm, don't really think it's my cup of tea. I may give it a try, I'll see what others suggest before I start downloading anyway.

Thanks.

You should try Monster. I only read the manga, but that's a real classic. A perfect thriller. Hellsing might be good, too, sure...

And sorry, I should have guessed you were already watching yakitate.

you could try hunter x hunter if you didn't come to like naruto. it's been yet the only shounen anime who has reached over 70 episodes with no fillers followed. the anime is similar to naruto, DBZ, yuyu hakusho but without a endless scenes fight from every episodes. hunter x hunter is also being popular fo being really unpredictable meaning that what you would see won't always conclude to what you thought you would believe.

Yeah, HxH is probably my favourite. Manga and anime. But this is right on the mark of what I’m looking for.
I guess I should have made a list of what I've seen/read...

Erm, just leave out all the really popular ones as I've most likely already seen them.

Don't take it personnally, but then, what you ask from us is quite inhuman. I sum it up :

a shŰnen manga that has been adapted into anime (i.e. popular), ongoing (i.e. long, so popular) or finished ( short, so "unpopular", because short popular shŰnen series doesn't exist. Short = unpopular in terms of shŰnen...) that you wouldn't know yet, though you've been watching anime for a very long time now...




Sorry, I quit.

Get Backers (but as I warn everyone, don't watch the last 3 seconds of the final episode after the credits roll, it's a bit heart-breaking in a AI sort of way T_T....)

Yeah, I think I'm wishing for things that don't exist...

Awww, c'mon, don't get depressed like that. There will be brighter days, when popular shônen=good quality, I can tell you!

Watch Ebichu instead, that will cheer you up, believe me!

Or Gakuen Alice, or Animal Yokocho. These aren't shônen (though GA has some shônen gimmicks to it, IMO) but they will definitely make you believe in cute and funny anime again, more than endless filler stinking mainstream shônen stuff. ^^
