Anime to watch?

    I like to watch anime sometimes. I've listed some titles I've seen over time and wouldn't mind some recommendations based on it.

    You're free to discuss anime in general as well.

    Title Rating Quick review
    Anohana 4/10 "Only a select lot see you" cliché is so overused and the tear-jerking stems from that quirk. I would've loved more drama, since the ingredients were there.
    Naruto 5/10 Excluding Shippuden as it hasn't finished. I like the character development. This anime is immature, for example characters don't die, or extremely rarely do.
    Death Note 6/10 I find the "invisible shinigami follows you" - idea intriguing. The plot is overly contingent on wits, which is too arbitrary to my taste. Not that I'd like the genre to begin with...
    When They Cry 6/10 The premise and execution are nice. Maybe less iterations would've sufficed, although it remained a frightfully riveting story through both seasons.
    Elfen Lied 6.5/10 The plot plays out disappointingly; Lucy conveniently gets her powers right in the nick of time. Although I must admit I like how graphic it is.
    Parasyte the Maxim 6.5/10 Parasite invasion is executed nicely, and overall the execution is nice. I like the gore in it.
    Clannad 7/10 Second season is a tear jerker without parallel. But the first one consists of arcs which put me off, and wasn't too compelling overall, sans Fuko arc.
    Kimi no Na wa. 7/10 Very good development and execution in less than 2 hours. Needed more romantic elements, since the relationship was the story's driving force besides magic.
    Koe no Katachi 8/10 It's a must-see movie if you share my preferences. However, side characters were gray and lacked development. Left me yearning for romantic advances between characters.


    Edit: Formatted the list a bit
    Edit 2: Added a few titles.
    Edit 3: Changed wording.

    The following are all short anime

    Eureka seven
    is an interesting twist on a love story. A boy falls in love with an alien/robot hybrid who is the captain of a giant machine samurai bandit... Gay people tend to love the story and I found it particularly interesting simply because they show what I would deem as true love(conquers all)

    Basilisk is a love story with a twist. Two ninja clans and two head of their clan ninja's fall in love, but just when they fall for each other their clans announce war. Bound by honour they swear to kill each other for their clan!

    Hellsing I didn't really like this particular anime, the story line sucks, don't watch it

    Uhm... that's all I have for now. there was also this one anime which I forget the name of, I think it was 'one of them is not related'??? It was also a kinda love story. This guy wakes up one morning with two extremely hot girls claiming to both be his long last sister. Thing is he only had one sister. He ends up falling in love with both of them but know he can not marry his sister, so what can he do???? I never watched that one to the end but it was defiantly entertaining.

    Ok I finished Parasyte, it's like 6/10 - above average, in my eyes.

    Edit: As to clarify, I find single season animes annoying. But something like One Piece is ridiculous.

    Edit2: Well in my list it's 6.5 cuz it's definitely better than Death Note in my eyes, but I hate the lack of episodes too much to give it 7.

    Keep the suggestions coming hehe :)

    Yes, but I hate reading it from monitor screen. Something like Naruto I can find from my local library, but the chances of me getting a physical copy get slimmer beyond that.

    I prefer anime, I like the sounds and animation very much. But when we get to the garbage quality such as Code Geass, manga would be better.

    Ew. Really dislike that one.

    ____________________________

    Code Geass, it's basically like Death Note, mind games galore.
    Tokyo Ghoul is pretty much Parasyte but better. IMO

    Yes I could rate Tokyo Ghoul better than Parasyte easily, I see it has multiple seasons. I'm all for content.

    I will give it a try soon-ish!

    Well as I said already I can't stand the visuals of Code Geass, if I find physical manga collection of it I might read it.

    The manga pre Tokyo Ghoul:re is indeed better story wise.
    Though I want the fights to be animated.

    My favorite is probably Requiem for the Phantom. Though it's really close between Death Note and Code Geass as well.

    Diabolik Lovers,

    A little bit of romance and some damsel in distress and something I can't explain in english. Though I find it lacking, it is kinda good watching the girl being drank by seven vampires (if you watched it) :>

    I already read it though, an I still think you should upload it here on hive.

    You can make chapter two to it.

    I have decided to include anime movies on my list here as well.

    I watched Kimi no Na wa., which takes the top position it seems. It had a lot of elements I enjoy, so some bias is potentially at play there (but then again, this is my list..).

    Then Spirited Away I must give another watch, or all of the Studio Ghibli movies to be honest.

    Oh, Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (TV Series 2009–2010) - IMDb 60k votes
    9.1 on IMDB

    Not a movie but it's one of the best anime, easily.

    Also Avatar the last airbender, I might have a bit childhood bias on it, but it is the best non-japanese cartoon I've watched by miles. 9.x on IMDB I think
