Just finished FT, and need something else to fill the void it left behind. Took some time to read the thread of general discussion on anime but didn't find what I was looking for.


Someone recommend me some good animes, preferably comedy/fantasy/thriller/action or whatever.


Nothing too long though please, preferably sub 70 episodes.


Recently I've seen Baka to Test series, FT, Mirai Nikki, Zetsuen, IS+IS2, Fate series and Noucome.

Stupid Ones That I Used to Waste Time:

G Gundam (add up all the time that the main character spends saying his moves/catch phrases. See what you get.)

Yu-Gi-Oh! (Barely finished first season, not going any further)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal (See above)

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX (decent storyline starting from late season 2 and onwards)

Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds (decent storyline for once)

Pokemon (I watched the first 10 episodes or so, wondered how the hell I liked this as a kid, then never came back again...I do however occasionally use search engines to find out if our aptly named protagonist keeps frying girls' bikes...maybe it's a new way to pick up ladies??)

Science Fiction:

Accel World

Gundam Wing

Gundam Seed

Gundam Seed Destiny

Infinite Stratos (both seasons)

Macross Frontier

Sword Art Online

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagaan


DNAngel (was actually decent to my surprise)

Date a Live

Freezing (a bit graphic, stopped after season 1)

Hayate no Gotoku (all seasons)

Kore Wa Zombie Desuka?

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha (terrible storyline, yet somehow kept me hooked)

Omamori no Himari (actually...it was kind of...ehhh...)

Samurai Harem (actually decent)

The Devil is a Part-Timer

The Familiar of Zero (all seasons)

Tsukyomi: Moon Phase


Attack on Titan

Aria the Scarlet Ammo

Avatar: The Last Airbender (does this count??)




Buso Renkin


Chrome Shelled Regios

Dragon Crisis!

Elemental Gelade

Fairy Tail

Gash Bell!

Horizon in the MIddle of Nowhere (really confusing)


Inuyasha: The Final Act

Katekyo Hitman Reborn!

Kaze no Stigma



Medaka Box


Naruto Shippuden

One Piece

Soul Eater

Shakugan no Shana (seasons 1 and 2)

Others (the ones that really make you think and therefore stand out):

Mawaru no Penguindrum

Puella Magi Madoka Magica

In Progress of Watching:

Tokyo Ravens

Strike the Blood

Valverave (or however the heck you spell it)

Considering Watching/Finishing (should I watch these or not):

Angel Beats!


Deadman Wonderland

Death Note

Dragonaut: The Resonance

Gintama (I don't really go for anything that is PURE comedy...)

Guilty Crown (but but....it's so flobing sad I want to kill the director!)

Gundam 00

Rave Master

Shakugan no Shana (season 3)

Stein's Gate


Watched and Hated or Gave Up:

Full Metal Alchemist (I don't know what it is about it, but it just gets me depressed and lethargic)

Vampire Knight (I keep thinking they will kill each other and we get to see some nice action...only later I realized its meant to completely be a love story...what a freaking let down, the plot wasn't even any good)


I posted this on another thread. I think this might be one of the largest singular list on the sub-forums. Surely you can find something from all of these...

To Aru Majutsu no Index and To Aru Kaguku no Railgun. They're sort of twin series that focus around different characters in same overarching story. Index was technically the first one to be made, but the events of the first season of Railgun happened first and the events of the first season of Index line up with the events of the second season of Railgun. They're planning to continue the series for both after the manga gets a bit further.

Recently watched the entire series of Paranoia Agent with a friend (it's just one season). It was far more existential than I had anticipated and reallllllllllly flobing dark.


I think it makes much more sense to non-westerners because of the way eastern cultures internalize emotions, but the themes, art and characters were all very well done.


Fair warning: it has the most annoying intro song on the planet. I'd rather hit myself in the face with tack hammer than listen to it again.
