Apocalypse Zero is a fucking masterpiece with legit great humanistic politics if you read the manga, also gets super in-your-face about Japanese war crimes and anti-nationalism. Anime focused more on the action-comedy but it's still good.
It's a perfect optimistic companion piece to Shigurui.>>3680
Mad Bull manga is fantastic, anime is pretty good, Crying Freeman sadly sucks and removes a lot of the comedy from the manga >>5169>>3608
Geist is legitimately good too though definitely very rough; I feel that its "beginner director" traits help as much as harm it though.>>3622
Devilman Crybaby is flawed but worthwhile (just read the manga first), Spriggan is super underrated and anti-imperialist in a great way.
