Use this thread for general anime recommendations! List shows you've seen, what you like about them, and respond to others with shows you think they'd like.

I myself am pretty uncultured when it comes to the anime world. Despite this, anime has produced some of my favorite works of all time. I will list them now:

>MSG Thunderbolt December Sky

>FLCL (only the og OVA)
>Serial Experiments Lain
>Neon Genesis Evangelion
>Howl's Moving Castle

I think I like mecha quite a bit, I also like psychological dramas, and Howl's Moving Castle is nothing short of beautiful.

Video Girl Ai

Nice little six episode OVA about a guy who buys a vhs, and gets quite a shock when a girl comes out of it.

Ai-chan is my fave. ^-^


Good recommendation.




I've been rewatching Silent Mobius. I'd easily recommend this one to those who haven't watched it here.

Anyone saw this? What did you think?

I finished earlier this month. I didn't think it was terrible, but I definitely don't consider it an anime. It shouldn't have been presented as such. I agree with >>618 on certain points about it not focusing on the deeper context of cyberpunk culture along with at the same time having to agree with >>616 with it being, "fun". I went in with pretty low expectations in the first place coming from Netflix. I hate Netflix and don't personally use it. I ended up downloading the series to check it out through curiosity. Overall I'd give it a 5/10.

Another thing I'd like to mention is the music was probably the most disappointing part. The opening and ending themes were extremely bad for what I'd want out of a cyberpunk animation. From the music to the animation from them. I did like seeing Lucy's tits in the ending video which is the only moment worth seeing once and then the rest can be skipped throughout the rest of the series to save time.


>but I definitely don't consider it an anime.
What criteria do you use to define "anime"? Some say it's the art style that defines it, others say an animation is "anime" if it was made in Japan.
>I hate Netflix and don't personally use it.
Ditto. It's sucked for years now.
>Another thing I'd like to mention is the music was probably the most disappointing part.
I thought the music was pretty good. But again, it's probably because I had different expectations. Considering I also liked the videogame (I waited until about version 1.5 where it was more stable), maybe I just have bad taste.


Well I guess I'm just a gatekeeping bitch, if you want to enjoy the show, enjoy yourself, but I'd much likely prefer to read more classical /cy/-/lit/, before I watch some neon coat spinoff.


Any literature or other media you would recommend? I've had a love of tech since I was a child and have despised it's over-centralization and corpratization since my teens, but I'm still relatively new to cyberpunk as a genre.


This page has neat recommendations for different types of media in its header. I've recently read a few of William Gibsons books. Really neat, Neuromancer is a must in this genre.

Evangelion is overrated, prove me wrong


I can't! It is.

I watched it a few months ago, it was fab but I haven't felt the need to return to it.

I heard someone say you have to "Watch Evangelion, just so you can say you've watched Evangelion."

That rings true to me.


You have to think in the context and time when it was released, thats like if you said lain is overrated but in the year 2138 when the internet has changed drastically, its all about the cultural zeitgeist and the effects on it.

Generally agree with the other sentiments expressed in the thread. Although it is overrated, I can't fully agree with that myself considering how the original ending made me feel. So I'd say it's still worth watching but I am more than satisfied with it all being over thanks to the release of 3.0+1.0, which was fine for what it was. I enjoyed the 'touch grass nerd' ending

i feel eva is something you should watch as a teenager so you can better level yourself with the angst. something about watching sexually frustrated children as an adult just feels uncomfortable so i opted not to rewatch it further :D

i wouldn't call the show overrated though, more like famous. people just know it. at least most of the people i know who've watched it didn't think it was anything that special apart from the weird shit going on in the latter half of the series which is just memed to hell at this point.


File: 1679155904798.png (761.11 KB, 640x853, an_impossible_whopper.png)

It's weird. Whenever I hear the term overrated, I have to pause because I don't often understand how things are rated or pay much attention to that back and forth. Aside from being pedantic there, sure, it's popular and the memes spread to fans of varying levels of interest, maybe, in part, due to a viral marketing push.
Anyway, I didn't watch it initially, so by the time I got around to giving it a chance there was already talk about it being a franchise where the creator was actively provoking his audience, so that was an interesting lens to view it through. Can't really say what I would have thought about it outside of that context.

I'm twenty + eps in already. It's just so incredibly dubbed, a fantastic distinctive voice cast across the board.
So who here has watched Yu Yu Hakusho: Ghost Files?

Yu yu hakusho dark torment on the ps2 had a cool token minigame


Childhood favorite, the suicide scene was cool as fuck.

I liked gundam IBO.


Any one has any nice recomendation for someone that really liked Mushishi? I really like anime with country side, slow paced, fantasy that feels as if it could be real.


A simple, honest life. I'm glad he enjoys games

A fried egg! I will hit the planet on the side of a teflon-coated frying pan, already heated. The juicy contents spilling out and sizzling as the proteins change conformation. Tasty tasty fried egg.

my buddy has been trying to get me to read BLAME!, is it even worth the time?


It is if you appreciate the art of drawing.


yes, as >>629 said, it has one of the mostly visually striking pages in manga and art in general, but the story can be a bit hard to follow, its on of these "out there" mangas


This thread made me check it out. It does have some really nice pages/art, but I do have a hard time parsing what's what and what's happening in combat.


Youre probably retarded, notify your loved 9nes immediately

I started watching NGE, every time I mention it to someone they say that the last two episodes sucked/are memes?
Is it even possible to appreciate all the episodes before it?

pic relevant?

Berserk is redpilled as hell


i've never sensed any sexual frustration in it, just her being a bit of a loner kid. none of her friends are even dating anybody in the show

what led to your conclusion?


not that anon but icons get adopted by certain cultures all the time regardless of relevance or meaning! quite literally the definition of cultural appropriation.

seems like members of certain communities think view lain as relatable so they connect it to their personal agendas, while it seems like lain is just a nerd who finds comfort in her own interests. those being her navi and the wired. seeing as the online landscape sits today anyone can make up a loose connection to the character of lain especially if they're a bit of a social outcast. while most of them probably see her as a comfort character i really don't think that everyone who pretends to be neurodivergent needs to have a god complex
