I've only ever dipped my toes into anime, but I'd like to go further. I like fantasy, samurai, cyberpunk, and emotional stuff, and things with nature, shinto spirits, etc. I like:
Weathering With You
Samurai Champloo
Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence
Vampire Hunter D
Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal
Digimon: Last Evolution Kizuna
Lupin III
Princess Mononoke


What do you mean by going further? Do you want to watch increasingly obscure titles? Or just more animes? The director of Weathering with You made Your Name. which is somewhat similar but in my opinion better, you could watch that. I could list some anime films I enjoyed but I'm not sure how enticing just a simple list of titles would be.


Either. I've seen Your Name and it's great, but I actually have a slight preference for Weathering With You because the main character resonates with me more. The thing that's always been a block for me is that I've never liked the really cutesy or unfunny, goofy parts of anime, but I love a lot of the cool, mindblowing stuff.

I guess if you just name the most popular things I'll already know them, but I don't need the most obscure stuff ever. I'm just trying to get things that might appeal to my tastes, with good art, topics I like, etc. Even though I've already seen Your Name, that's the right type of suggestion.



>nature, shinto spirits

Mushishi, Noragami for the spirits, not so much nature, Haibane Renmei


Cyberpunk edgerunners, ghost in the shell, serial experiments lain

>emotional stuff

Like what emotions? romance?
if you wanna be depressed: 3 gatsu no lion, you lie in april
If you want to live the love you lack in real life: Spice and wolf, Golden time (fuck you it's better than toradora), Sono Bisque Doll, Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou
if you wanna feel utter calmness: Aria the animation, my neighbor totoro


Samurai Champloo, Katanagatari

Half of the fun of anime is watching weird shit you never though you would like, but yet you do, so don't take your categories too seriously


Thanks! I'll dig through these. And good point about exploring.


Well, you got enough recommendations from that other anon to last for a while, but I am curious, what do you mean by "cutesy or unfunny, goofy parts of anime"? Something like Yuru Yuri?


Basically chibi stuff, stuff about schoolgirls acting "zany," stuff that's "kawaii uwu," that whole thing has always driven me away a bit. Or at least it did growing up. But there are so many great films, and anime runs so deep, that I really regret not spending a lot more time on it before. I grew up with things like YuYu Hakusho, Lupin III, Rurouni Kenshin, Digimon, Gundom Wing, etc., and from exploring classics I found some great films like Ghost in the Shell, Akira, Barefoot Gen, but while I always liked a lot of it, enough of it didn't resonate with me for being too goofy that it was a little bit of a block. Now I'm investing a lot more time in it.

Bro watch Houseki no Kuni. It's a short series.


Nice, thanks! I really like the images you posted.


the melancholy of haruhi suzumiya


Ergo Proxy
Shigofumi: Letters from the Departed


That's like recommending 2001 a space Odyssey to the person who has seen 5 movies in their life


Haibane renmei


So, how did you like what was recommended here?


I like a lot of it, I'll give a thorough response in the next couple days, I've just been crazy overwhelmed with work the last few days


watch love stage!!!


honestly the dubbed version of love stage is so relatable and actually its a really good dub which isnt afraid of sounding faggy so be sure to watch it



That show fucking shreds hard


i never thought overworked anime studios would be an anime plot but i certainly appreciate it

consume more loopman the thrid until your eyes explode, then you will have achieved peak animation


serious answer: if you like Ghost in the Shell 1&2, you'll like the rest of Mamoru Oshii's work. Check out Angel's Egg, Patlabor 1 & 2, The Sky Crawlers, and Jin-Roh.

Do not watch Oshii's post-Sky Crawlers work.


This is the closest thing to a relevant thread I could find.
I don't watch anime but I saw vidrel on youtube and I really like the animation, but the concept (guy whos power is being stinky I guess?) Is less than interesting to me
is it worth watching? I believe its called Memories


It's called Stink Bomb, it's the second out of the three short-films that make up Memories. It's been recommended on /anime/ before ( >>12062 and >>13724 ). Personally I liked it but in my opinion Stink Bomb was by far the best out of the three but people usually prefer Magnetic Rose so maybe my opinion is not to be trusted.


Oh yeah, Memories is great. Watch it if you haven't.


Memories is certainly worth watching especially Magnetic Rose (Stink Bomb was a bit too silly for me idk). If you want to try out similar stuff, there's a few other great anthology films like Neo Tokyo, though they're not going to have as good animation as Memories.


black lagoon, if you like it jormungand too
code geass / death note if you havent watched it / like the big brain no moralz main char
berzerk film trilogy
psycho pass, planetes for cyberpunk

good advice

Just watched and can recommend Tekkonkinkreet. The plot didn't do much for me but the soundtrack and animation is great.


Where can I watch shigofumi?



Im watching texhnolyze and its been a really slow burn but im starting to see why people regard it so highly. However i will say that i didnt like it at first. I thought the first 8 episodes or so were boring. Theres key plot developments and worldbuilding but it was too slow paced for my liking. Now that im through that though theres some spicy action and philosophical concepts like nihilism and a meaningless existence that are an awesome vibe. Im gonna watch the last two episodes tomorrow. Ive heard the last episode got people depressed and scared so im pretty excited.


well the ending was depressing but it wasnt quite what i was expecting. i didnt really get it. all i knew was the general direction that everything was headed towards, but i didnt really understand the culmination if that makes sense.


It's not about nihilism that's just the backdrop. It's about being a hero. This vid explains in depth of what's up with the setting and ending.


>mouse utopia
More like cringe LIBERALtopia.


the scientist that did this study is honestly such a fucking hack, he literally put mice in a retarded burger dystopia imagined version of gommunism just to prove an ideological point about how having food and shelter is le bad actually


I thought the point was more to do with population density and limit of resources not really some message about communism.
