Can't abide Anime much at all. Too much screaming, and slapstick for my tastes.

Ever seen 'The Devil Is a Part-Timer'? If not, give it a try. There are only 13 episodes because it didn't catch on very well, which is a shame because it was something different than most anime that I'd seen. The American voice cast really shines with the material they were given. Just understand that there were notable changes for western audiences, which is also a shame because there are times you can visually tell where minor scenes were missing or dialog wasn't fully cohesive amongst the characters.

If you are looking for atypical love stories, then here is one I mentioned before -[size=150] Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry[/size]. The protagonist is not a clueless idiot. Very well done, and a GREAT, although a bit surprising - ending.

There is a movie in the works following up on the anime, although I have no idea when it will air.

Almost forgot -Shingeki no Kyojin - also known as [size=150]Attack on Titan[/size]. A top tier anime, but it is ultra violent. If you can handle that, you are rewarded with a deep story, great character development, and an agonizing but amazing love story.

true - attack on Titan is an awesome Story and anime in General
but tell me - do you know any anime which actually has a romance like soa?
I mean, I have seen a few now but all I have seen was like either one of them died or one of them had a Mission which kept them from coming together

by the way been wtchung akame ga kill - great anime but typical ending

SNRK!

While anime and manga are two of my loves (I fell in love with anime when I was in Japan in the late 70s), I have by no means seem all of it.

Some series I have not seen that WILL surprise peeps;
One-Punch Man
One Piece
Bleach
Naruto
Overlord

Bleach and Naruto have been around for too long, too many episodes. Every time I look at Naruto's 543 epi's, I just can't get myself to start at the beginning...

Now, two series I HAVE seen all of the episodes that may surprise peeps;

All 4 series of Dragonball (first series, Z, GT, Super)
Inuyasha (all 166 episodes, plus the first two movies)

Some ANCIENT series that I have seen completely
Speed Racer
Gigantor * this one first released during WWII and was propoganda - I have only seen 5 of those episodes, and sadly the remainder may be lost forever. I have seen all of the remade series from the 60s
Tobor the 8th Man

I've seen most of Astro Boy (Not all of it; there are three series of Astro Boy, plus an upcoming prequel series)

As long as we are discussing anime, how about live action?

Anyone here excited about [size=150]Alita: Battle Angel[/size]? I am! It is an outstanding manga, well worth the read, even though it started in the 90s. This is the sleeper Dragonball Z manga! There is an anime, but it is a 1 hour movie, not a series. It is good, although not really super faithful to the manga. It looks like the James Cameron movie will be awesome, although not entirely faithful, to the manga. The series is named Gunnm in Japan...

The anime movie

Defintely an interesting one 🙂 Though I think it is good, that it actually is a movie and not a series because it would have been hard to keep that strong pace going 🙂

I'm adding it to my must watch list. have a bunch of suggestions from this thread.

Just finished Sword Art Online II. Had something in my eye during most of the last episode. I'm going to say it is one of the best anime's I've seen. wonderful story-lines.

I hear SAO III is coming out soon. until then I going to move on. Probably Overlord next.

one question:

did you watch the extra edition?
It is basically a lot of repetition of the first season but it is also a nice story wrapped around it AND
it has a few explanations added, which might give you an extra input and point of view 🙂

I started to but I thought it was just a repeat of stuff in movie form. I'll look it up. thanks

I've been watching this thread but had not seen any of those mentioned even though I love watching anime. I just finished the first season of SOA and am moving on to SOA II. Then I'll tackle Overlord, Rewrite, Hundred, Log Horizon, etc. 😀

Thanks for all the suggestions!

I am surprised to see people talk about Sword Art Online and Overlord but somehow not mention Log Horizon, in my opinion the best game->isekai anime ever made. The depth of the supporting characters is something that really amazes me. I know I could never in a lifetime write anything like that. I feel like you could make a dozen spinoff titles based on the major supporting cast, so complex yet well defined are they. And while the former gamers are resurrected automatically if they die, there is an unusual price to pay that makes it essential to be careful to survive unless something very precious is at stake.
Well, hopefully the reason it's not been brought up is that everyone has seen it so many times already... ^_^
