    Default The Anime Thread

    Apologies if there is one of these already (I looked and couldn't find anything).

    So...long story short, for years I only watched science fiction, but after Atlantis I couldn't find a sci fi show I could really sink my teeth into. For a good few years I tuned into other shows, but none held my interest for too long. Then during a period of ill health where I was bored out of my mind, a friend of mines recommended some anime to me. At first I scoffed cos "it's for kids"...then I got hooked!

    Anyhoo...I'm just wanting to know if there's any other anime fans out there on Gateworld. If so, post with your recommendations! Please also give any manga recs if they've never been adapted!

    For me? I love

    Naruto (and Shippuden and yes Boruto as well)
    Attack on Titan
    My Hero Academia
    Yuri on Ice
    ReLife
    Digimon Adventure
    Digimon Tamers
    Death Note (not finished watching it yet!)

    and a few others besides these

    Part 2 coming very soon!! (this is a fic btw, not the Fandemonium novel)

    Digimon is one of my personal favourites and I used to love Death Note but kinda got over it a little when I got to my mid-twenties and became much less Emo. I've tried getting into Attack on Titan but there's something about it that I just find terribly unsettling. My parter is a huge fan of Yuri on Ice and I gotta admit it's a great one. Plus I am obsessed with the opening for it.

    My partner also got me into some "Slice of life" animes. One called "Kids on the slope" (or "Apollo on the Hill") Which is about a group of school kids in 1960's Japan coming together because of their love of improvised Jazz music. That has some great tunes in it. And also another called "Beck - The Mongolian Chop Squad" which is about the journey of a rock band as they go from their lead singer first discovering his love of music to their final gig together. It's really touching and again some great music and tunes (though while I usually don't mind either the Japanese or English dubs in anime in this case I strongly suggest the English dub.)

    My favourite anime has to be Full Metal Alchemist though, particularly FMA Brotherhood. If you've never watched it I highly recommend it. Great imagine and a really fantastic plot. The original FMA came out around the same time as the Manga but quickly outpaced it so it ended up going its own way, whereas Brotherhood is the same story as the Manga.

    I've also been getting into one I've found on Netflix (InEurope anyway) called Dragon Pilot. It's this really cute coming of age story about a girl who becomes an airforce pilot of a dragon that can disguise itself as an F-15 Fighter jet...

    Gundam Wing was one I was a huge fan of as a kid and the Gundam franchise in general has a lot of great series in it, though most of them all deal with the same concept of the horrors of war in more or less the same way.

    I can't recommend the series RWBY enough to people as well. It's a Western animation rather than Japanese but it's in the Japanese Anime style. It is off the wall fun and though the first season is a little ropey animation wise as they're still finding their feet, by the time you get to the third season it is just awesome.

    If you are on a bit of an anime awakening at some point I would say you need to watch Neon Genesis Evangelion... Just cos everyone has to watch that at some point.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.

    My collection of Anime is quite dated, like me
    Hellsing (original and the OVA's)
    Bezerk
    Steel angel Karumi
    Bubblegum Crisis
    Robotech/ Macross
    Starblazers
    Cowboy Beebop
    Full metal Alchemist
    Trigun

    I think that's about it that I actually own, but I have probably watched more either online or via streaming. I highly recommend all of them. Anime tells great stories, people just need to get over the fact it's, well, animated. Disney produced classic tales for decades in the animated format, so does Anime.
