Looking at your I-have-not-seen-yet list, there would be several that I would recommend, such as Bubblegum Crisis and Rewrite, but the one YOU HAVE TO WATCH ASAP is [size=150]Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry[/size] - Chivalry of a Failed Knight. This was a pinnacle anime, well done in every attribute. Once you see it you will be joining the chorus demanding a season 2! It starts off kind of Fan-Servicey, but don't let that stop you from watching one of the best anime's ever done.

say, have you heard if there is any chance that there will be a 2nd season?
I mean, unlike other animes with a romance plot this one has an ending which work, so it is not that what I am looking for but it still would be interesting how he does in the 7star tournament 🙂

One of the producers said they were working on an anime movie based on the Seven Star tournament, but that was in 2015, and no word since. They had no plans for a season 2. I have no idea why they stopped production, this series was very popular in Japan, as well as in the west.

Oh and here is another one I just saw

got to admit, I was kind of curious when stumbling over it, because it has such an unusual title

Ms. Vampire who lives in my Neighbourhood

It is kind of juvenile innocent humour I got to admit but when you do not put to much expectations into watching something this one is quite entertaining and light-hearted and just something for raising the mood 🙂 (not everything must be as deep and philosophical as Death Parade).

So basically it is about a girl who meets a Vampire (body of a 13 year old) and in a quite funny way is becoming friends with her and going through everyday-live which leads to a lot of hillarious situations because of the culture clash (like summer break is leading to complications because everything in the human girls summer plans has to do with flowing water and/or sun which are basically both not to great for vampires in that oldschool interpretation of vampires; or different types of food and such things) and the fact that the girl is not afraid of her being a vampire at all and with her excitement actually scares the vampire girl more than vice versa 🙂

I did watch "Death Parade". While it is a good anime, it can be depressing at the same time. One of those "you'll just have to see for yourself" shows.

Oh and there is actually another one I really DO recommend ! 🙂

Anyone heard of Death Parade? (I guess so, but still am asking)

a very deep an intelligent series about people having to deal with their inner darkness after they died (not knowing it at the moment) and also a lot of tragedy and questioning of right or wrong of what evil or bad really is and what motivates humans. So a quite fascinating series which makes people reflect and think - absolutely great made and a very interesting idea!

I would throw in The Rising of the Shield Hero, My Hero Academia, Goblin Slayer, Log Horizon and all of Full Metal Panic, which runs from humor in one series to gripping adventure in another. That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is also fun to watch, just too bad that they don't add in the Dragon's perspective on the story like they do in the manga. Mob Psycho 100 is another fun anime dealing with a junior high boy with psychic powers. Black Clover is hit or miss, it gets better after awhile but you have to stick to it long enough to see that.

Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody the anime was good but the light novels are better.

I would recommend reading the light novel version of many of these including Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon.

I would also recommend the light novels Reborn as a Vending Machine, I Now Wander the Dungeon. This throws pretty much every trope for that "I died and now am a hero in another world" out the window. The main hero is a vending machine, hence the name of the series, and sell various vending machine products to help out people and can only say a few stock phrases. It is a hoot!

So, about doing a list 😉 well as mentioned before there are
Record of Lodoss War (with following Chronicles of the Heroic Knight)
Silent Moebius
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Bubblegum Crisis
Saber Rider
Galaxy Rangers
Defenders of the Earth (a must for a fan of the old Silver Age Comics 🙂 )

and now, since I mentioned, that I checked a few, which I have been recording or which I read in resemblance to SAO here it goes 😉

Yona of the Dawn - typical "Princess learns of the world" story but nice to see though it would need a
2nd Season in my opinion
Is it wrong to pick up girls in a Dungeon - already the title is hilarious but it is also in concern of story and action worth seeing and has characters which are easy to like
Tsubasa Chronicles - nice story with great music background
Rokka - Braves of the Six Flowers - Another one of those medieval/fantasy stories and another one whichwould need another season
the Monogatari Series (Bakegomnogatari, Hanamonogatari, Tsukimonogatari)
Interesting plot and characters - sometimes quite strange but also kind of funny
Akame Ga Kill - Has nothing to do with the aforementioned Search-Concept but is something I recorded
and definitive a great series
My Cultivator Girlfriend - interesting anime style, story and music (seems like its not from Japan actually)
Infinite Stratos - not too deep but still nice to see if one likes the SciFi/Mecha type of stuff

So that much for beginning 😉

My recommendations: (In no particular order)

Full Metal Panic: Fumoffu (probably the funniest anime I've ever seen)
Kaguya Sama: Love is War (not action oriented, but still pretty frickin' good)
Tonari no Seki-kun: The Master of Killing Time (just for fun)
Sword Art Online Abridged (We must save my family)
Rising of the Shield Hero (decent story so far)
High School of the Dead (LOTS of fan service, but a good zombie story behind that)
DBZ Abridged (because...c'mon)

Thanks for posting here 🙂
Agree with High School of the Dead and Fairy Tail
and of course with the Abridged stuff 😀

they are just awesome (though I actually like the SAO Parody more and hope they will eventually go on).
Got to admit, in some cases I thought the dialogues would have even fit better than th original ones - not just for the fun aspect but seriously 🙂

Fist of the North Star and Akira are absolute classics, so G.A. do watch them (more darker stuff, than most we wrote here yet but still absolutely worth seeing)

Addendum:

In your list, "Record of Lodoss War" is great.

I tend to watch more comedy based anime as it seems harder (IMO) to find decent action based ones. Some will start off light-hearted and turn into some serious wtf?!? episodes.

Also recommend:
KonoSuba: God's Blessing on this Wonderful World (transported to another world hijinx)
Food Wars (don't know why, but I like it)
Azumanga Daioh (really, just a cute story)

Movies:
Akira (would actually be surprised if you haven't seen this one already)
Fist of the North Star (see above)

I liked "Fairy Tail" too, just sooo many episodes.

since I started that one I think I have to add some input, so to avoid that some of you who might take my idea to watch something which they later might feel disturbed by (you never know).

So about me mentioning that series "Still the Blood" I was pretty impressed by the Soundtrack and liked the action and general idea. It is not a really deep story and idea but still kind of entertaining. The only thing was that typical Harem Thing which basically would not have been needed though where good for some more or less funny scenes (and be serious that word can also be used with Sword Art Online thinking about his romantic entanglements, so it is nothing which prevents me from watching something).
The second season though (and that is why I am writing it) they got a little bit too far into the semi-erotic aspect which definitely would not have been needed but for some reason somebody felt it necessary to show breasts repeatedly no matter if fitting or not just so you have them onscreen.
So if somebody got the feeling he/she feels disturbed by that kind of stuff and wants to avoid it, I wanted to mention it - it is still nice Fighting Action but they have that sexual implication part included there too (which are absolutely unnecessary by the way and sometimes feel like being forced down your throat).

During my week off I have decided to watch a few episodes, since I haven't watched a lot of anime recently.

I started with a couple of episodes of an old series, "Spice and Wolf" which was intriguing, but failed to capture my attention. I will probably pick this up again at some point, though when that is is hard to say.

I then tried again to get into "My Hero Academia" but was again reminded that I actively dislike the main character. Despite the high regard it is held in, I don't think this one's for me.

I am now five episodes into "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime." Honestly I did not expect to like this one, but it has been recommended to me by several people. It is now 22:30, and I think I'll load up episode 6. Gotta love not having to get up for work.
