I didn't really search cause I'm too lazy to see if this type of thread exists but what the hell..

Anyways, I really love anime and manga. Right now I'm watching a few currently.. My favorite one at the moment is One Piece though. I always laid it off to the side cause it never really caught my attention, until recently. Now I know why it has been going on for so long now.

Basically I made this for people who love anime and manga to discuss and talk about everything anime.

So anyways my favorite anime of all time would probably include a few; Bleach, Death Note, FMA: Brotherhood, H.O.T.D., etc.

I would add some older ones too but meh. Btw this isn't just to talk about your favorite anime or whatever, you can discuss about them too.

I've seen SAO, Guilty Crown, HotD, Bleach, Dragonball Z, Accel World, Kimi ni Todoke, Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, Trigun, and Fullmetal Alchemist (including Botherhood).

I'm currently watching Gungrave and Watch To Aru Kagaku no Railgun (ep1 for now) and currently reading 3x3 Eyes. hehe..

Any recommendations?

Code Geass, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Shakugan no Shana fit in very well with the genre of anime you listed.

I've finished Yu Yu Hakusho. Code Geass is on my "to finish" list as of the moment. Haven't found time to finish it because of reliving the good old days of Gundam Wing. hahaha

I might try Shakugan no Shana. Thanks for the recommendations.

My favorite has to be Hetalia, I pretty much like all the seasons, especially the new season The Beautiful World. I haven't read the manga yet, but I plan on starting it soon.
I also watch Naruto (everyone always says how cliche it is but idc), Kuro****suji (Black Butler), Fruits Basket, The Prince of Tennis, Sengoku Basara Samurai Kings, Ouran High School Host Club, and a bit of Hellsing.
I pretty much read the manga if they were available. There might be a few more and I just kind of forgot about them.
Personally, I prefer to read manga because I can pretty much do it whenever I want to, or because it takes me less time to read than to actually watch.

Manga over anime* You don't add an s to them if they're plural. Just so you know in the future


no, i meant animes. not plural. the only animes i watch are mostly movies.

Rule of thumb for fillers: If you couldn't tell it was a filler, it was good (you mostly only find out if you go and read the manga and find that that never happened...).


the problem is that i read the mangas so i know when i see a filler...

Well, I currently watched over 700 anime and read twice as much manga...I believe I passed the borders of an otaku and became a God.


only 700? i am glad that i live in a dimension without time...i watched over a million different animes and i read thrice as much manga...

I can't believe I have never seen this thread before. I watch and read a lot of anime and manga, although it seems that no-one I know is into anime/manga at all. I enjoyed stuff like death note, SAO, beelzebub, naruto, one piece, hayate no gotoku and a couple others. Anyone know a good anime/manga similar-ish to these?

no, i meant animes. not plural. the only animes i watch are mostly movies.

I'm pretty sure that it is only anime no matter how you're using it.
Looks like there's a large amount of people on this forum who watch/read anime/manga. Yay.

I tend to read a lot of manga and if you were to ask what I'm currently right now, you'll get a really long list. As for anime, I have watched SAO, Accel World, Fairy Tail, Bleach, Btooom! and Mirai Nikki. I'm trying to watch Shakugan no Shana, Code Geass, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagen and Oreimo but I haven't found the time to watch them yet. Feel free to recommend some animes to me.

Anyway, I thought I'll come here and ask you guys what new animes are you going to watch in the Spring Season?

I've just started into this whole world of stuff, and so far I have to say Hetalia. I haven't watched anything else yet [which is why Hetalia is my favorite], so recommendations for funny animes would be appreciated.

Dog Days, Hayate no Gotoku, Nagasarete Airantou, R-15, and Zero no Tsukaima all focus on comedy and I laughed while watching them.

I don't usually enjoy pure comedy though, and all of those follow a semblance of a plot. Having never watched Hetalia, I can't say whether they're similar or not.

I would have to agree with kasic's suggestions. I also recently found an anime/manga that made me laugh heaps called Gintama, which I would definitely reccomend.

Gintama


Ah, this one. From what I saw, it makes fun of a lot of other anime. I've been holding off on it so I'll get the references.

If we're talking about pure comedies, Azumanga Daioh and Nichijou are two of the funniest I've seen. They're probably the only anime that have actually made me laugh on a consistent basis.

Hyakko and SKET Dance (which is heavily influenced by Gintama) are also solid titles, though, in my opinion, they're more amusing than they are funny. They also have more serious moments interspersed.

For more abstract and/or "mature" comedies, Detroit Metal City (which is sometimes favorably compared to Metalocalypse), Cromartie High School, and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei are classics.

This is a pretty good blog post to reference for more, though a caveat: some of the anime in the list aren't truly comedies. The comments also give additional titles.

Yea, that's true, it does make quite a few references to other anime(which can be really funny as long as you've watched the mentioned anime) but as long as you've seen a fair few of the popular ones(Death note, one piece, that kind of popular anime/manga) then you'll understand most of it.

Anime and manga is very important to me. I feel like it is so. . .stereotyped against, I guess that is a way to put it (correct me if that is the wrong way to put it)? When I say "I like anime." people automatically say "You are a pervert." or "You are weird" or "Weaboo alert!" Which offends me. I guess people only take things for what a few make them out to be. Yes, I am aware some anime are like that. But in all honesty can people really say that is all to anime? I always seem to experience this and I wonder if many others have had the same experience?
My favorite happens to be Hetalia. If i listed all the ones I did like, it would take way too long. So far right now I am reading: Say I love you, Kami-sama Hajimema****e, Soul eater, Black Butler, History's strongest disciple kenichi, Vampire Knight, Skipã»Beat!, Heart no Kuni no Alice, and like I said, the list goes on and on.
