I have never watched a single Anime nor read a single Manga in my entire life. Where should I start, what are the essentials? What is the "State & Revolution" of Anime and/or Manga? Don't reply EVA, I hate that little twink Shinji.naxaliteNaxalite

The popular franchise Boku no Pico is a good place to begin. It's almost an epic in the way of the old Greeks. If that is not based then try the Himegoto , which is more anticapitalist themed.bolshevikBolshevik

I got filtered by the first episode. It was overtly trying to be dramatic for characters that haven't been established yet and even an insert song as if there was any real drama.

It's like going on a date and the other person pledges their undying love for you and wants to get married immediately or they kill themselves.

>It's like going on a date and the other person pledges their undying love for you and wants to get married immediately or they kill themselves.
A really good analogy for why I genuinely dislike Utena, it feels like it tries too hard for a concept that was never supposed to be complex - magical girls doing girl things while fighting enemies.

Is it? The first episode shows us that Utena challenges the green boy to a duel, because her best friend Wakaba was humiliated by him, and suddenly gets dragged into different stuff she didn't expect or anticipate. Reminder that she didn't give much fuck about Himemiya and planned to get rid of her and all that duel stuff. A fairly reasonable plot.

>and even an insert song as if there was any real drama.

Utena's narrative is more complicated than in a usual anime. The episode are meant to later be included into an unexpected bigger picture (and things like songs are supposed to subtly forshadow/gain new meaning later).

Original Gundam and the sequel Zeta and Char's Counterattack are classics, I hear LotGH is also quite good. Akira is one of the best movies ever made.

Uzumaki is probably the best manga I've ever read, and if you like Shounen YYH (up until Dark Tourney) and HxH are the heights of the genre.accelerationAcceleration

>Uzumaki is probably the best manga I've ever read
Really? It feels a bit lame to me TBH, but maybe it's because these kinds of 'scary' manga feel too absurdist to evoke anything other than slight confusion and shrugged shoulders.
>HxH is top of the game
while I agree about Gundam, Akira, LotGH and YYH, HxH is overrated as hell, people are too caught up in the decade(s) old hype of the show to realize that they've essentially been bamboozled by rereading YYH crossed with (original) Dragon Ball and some Naruto thrown in. Not bad, but way too overhyped.

I mean Tomino is known for writing quirky -or highly mentally unstable- characters, but that's a huge charm of the show so whatever. Same anon went all rage-tier in the other gundam because he recycles love triangle tropes or somethingaccelerationAcceleration

He's not wrong, Gundam and especially Tomino's Gundam series are full of insane or stupid characters. A better mech show for a newcomer would be Gunbuster or Macross DYRL.

I mean I did recc it earlier, just pointing out that Gundam is a good show and characters being erratic and weird is hardly the worst thing that can happen to a show.

 No.9233

>>9232
The characters do dumb shit, but the setting also is dumb to allow the dumb behavior to happen. For example, why was it so easy to sortie without permission in Zeta Gundam and why did this shit happen multiple times? One would expect a paramilitary organization to have some degree of discipline and punish disobedience. It's tiresome seeing this stupidity repeated over and over for 50 episodes. Which is another reason why Gunbuster is great since it's only 6 episodes.

>a paramilitary organization to have some degree of discipline and punish disobedience
Buddy, you have no idea how utterly undisciplined the military can be when they don't want to. Besides, for a fictional story like this I can suspend my disbelief, because there's plenty of good, interesting moments and good writing.
>this stupidity repeated over and over for 50 episodes.
They're selling the show, it's like girl punch boy gags in an anime, it's there because they need to extend run-time, or in this case, kick off the episode's plot, that's what corporate meddling can do.

It's not that I'm struggling with examples, I know they're there, but I haven't seen Gundam in a while. I think I'd name most of the episodes such as the dropping of a Colony on Australia and the death of the MC's friend/love interest 'by his own hand' etc. I also really enjoyed Chars, and thought he was a rather well written fascist.
