Recommend me anime based on the ones I have watched

MeoTwister5 2013-01-17 20:37

I want to say Tatami Galaxy.

jedinat 2013-01-17 20:43

Hachimitsu to Clover
Juuni Kokuki
Gundam SEED
Kino no Tabi

Sackett 2013-01-17 21:03


Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun

Ano Hana

kitten320 2013-01-17 21:29

Clannad = Kanon 2006, Air, Angel Beats, Little Busters

All done by same person though LB will be the weakest of them all.

Also AnoHana will go well.

Daeth Note = Bakuman (same author but comedy this time), Code Geass (anti MC), Aoi Bungaku Series, Jigoku Shoujo

Elfen Lied = Ga-Rei Zero, Deadman Wonderland

FMA = D.Gary Man, Soul Eater, Hunter x Hunter, Magi

Love Hina = Mahou Sensei Negima (same author)

Steins; Gate = Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica (They are more similar than you might think), NHK ni Youkoso! (Both MCs believe that they are hunted by imaginable organization)

Usagi Drop = Natsume Yuujinchou (similar/calm atmosphere)

Thanks guys, I'll check some of these out. Will keep you updated.

Also, please recommend similar anime to the ones I rated at least 8 please :D

For me, 7 is just OK, barely allowing me to complete the series without dropping it (sometimes..)

Sackett 2013-01-18 09:10

Kimi Ni Todoke would be another I'd suggest.

Coldlight 2013-01-18 09:22

Since you've seen and apparently liked Spice and Wolf, I'll suggest the currently airing Maoyuu Maou Yuusha.

Features the same seiyuu for the main characteres as Spice and Wolf, and has economics too.

SeijiSensei 2013-01-18 11:33

Given your list, I think you might like Nodame Cantabile.

I'll also suggest the older show Hikaru no Go. Chihayafuru has many plot features that parallel events in Hikaru. The only downside might be that it has an almost exclusively male cast. For another show where girls play a game, I'll suggest Shion no Ou. I didn't find the murder mystery aspect of the show all that compelling, but Shion herself is a wonderful character.

Just finished season 1 of Kimi ni Todoke. I like the characters and their unique personalities and the chemistry between the four main characters. One thing that really brought the anime down for me though was the Chizu and Tohru episodes. Those were awful and made me drowsy for the first time in the anime. I also don't like how realll slow the relationship is going.

Overall, 8/10. Will be moving on to season 2

Updated anime list for anyone interested:

Kirito 2013-01-21 00:40

I think you'll enjoy Sora no Woto and Fate/Zero judging by your list.

Guardian Enzo 2013-01-21 09:00

I also thought of Hikaru no Go immediately based on your 10s. I'd also say Seirei no Moribito and Hourou Musuko.

kaitanuva 2013-01-25 18:26

Kimi ni Todoke 2 - 5/10

Sawako really tested my patience with her utter incompetence. Then there was that dude. The ending was really lackluster as well.

Currently on episode 18 of Nodame Cantabile. Absolutely awesome so far. I love Nodame! She's so wild and she kinda looks like Yuna from FF10! Her seiyuu really makes the character

Tries to imagine Nodame in a kimono saying "I'm so sorry" a hundred times a day.


Nope, doesn't work for me, but I'm glad you're enjoying the show! (I'm actually a pretty big fan of Yuna's, at least her FFX version. The gun-toting hot-pants version of her in FF X-2 was an abomination.)

I thought Kawasumi Ayako and Seki Tomokazu had great chemistry together throughout the show. I wondered if they performed in the studio together while recording. I also liked Tamaki Hiroshi as Chiaki in the live-action version, though my daughter thought he wasn't really handsome enough to play the role. However Ueno Juri as Nodame grated on me by the time the second movie (the equivalent of the "Finale" anime sequel) rolled around. Japanese live-action performers do a lot of "mugging" as compared to the more naturalistic style used in the West. I thought Ueno was cute and appropriate during the live-action version of the first season, but she got tiresome when it came to the movies.

(I recommend watching the live-action version if only to see Ogawa Shinji's performance as Stresemann. It's priceless!)

kaitanuva 2013-01-25 20:00

Streseman is a character so far. Thats what really makes this anime, the really interesting personalities

Ive only watched one live action version of an anime so far-GTO. Is it as good?

SeijiSensei 2013-01-25 22:26

I usually have problems with Japanese live-action adaptations because of the tendency to overact all the time. Nodame Cantabile pretty much keeps that under control during the television adaptation, but as I said, Ueno became more annoying than appealing in the movies based on the Paris-hen and Finale sequels.

There are also some slapstick events which rubbed me the wrong way as well. In one of the early episodes Nodame runs toward Chiaki to fawn on him. He sidesteps her advance and directs her head-first into a boulder. I didn't like the scene in episode one of the anime where he throws the Mozart score in her face, so you can imagine my reaction to pushing her into a rock. Slapstick violence, especially when the target is a girl, is a bit easier to write off in animation. It has more impact (for me at least) when the performers are humans.

Still I found the live-action Nodame much more watchable than the live-action version of Moyashimon that noitaminA produced a couple years back. I couldn't watch more than half of the first episode, and that's a show I enjoyed greatly when it was released as an anime.

As for Stresemann ...

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
Love that wig!

You liked Clannad - try Angel Beats since they're both Key titles.

You liked Cowboy Bebop - try Samurai Champloo since same director.

You liked Usagi Drop - Kurenai has a similar type of young girl character but in a harsher scenario.

kaitanuva 2013-02-09 22:59

Finished Nodame Paris and Finale 8/10 and 7/10 respectively. They were okay but it just kind of dragged and didn't end with a bang as I would have hoped.

Ano Hana was decent but tried really hard on the emotion parts at times. Got kinda cheesy. Also, I hated the constant "Jintan"ings. 7/10

I think I need a change in scenery now from these romance / slice of life shows. Three consecutive less-than-spectacular second halves in this genre (Kimi ni Todoke, Nodame, Ano Hana) has left a bad taste in my mouth.

I've just started Soul Eater and it looks very promising. It seems like a kiddier version of FMA at first impression.

Updated list for anyone with more recommendations:

*Note: The ongoing Chihayafuru 2 is still spectacular

jedinat 2013-02-09 23:06

You didn't watch any of mine, lol....

I'll get around it...I'm not a very fast anime watcher. And I don't really watch based on first recommendation, just whatever looks decent at first glance, sorry..

Also, a certain person has a pretty good track record with me, so I tended to look to him a bit more :X
