Personal Recommendations

(image coming soon….i hope)

Ok so I have had a few people ask me for recommendations both on the about page and in one of my reviews so I decided it was about time to add this page.

Like anime but don’t know what to watch next? Never seen an anime but want to? Well why not get a recommendation for a few anime from some one who lives on it ^_^

There are just a few things i need to know to help you out.

1) A few anime that you have seen and liked:
(no more then 4 please and please stay away from the big 4 being naruto, bleach, Gintama, and one piece, I give out recommendations based off these and they help me get a glimpse into what styles you like. If you have never seen an anime/don’t remember the last anime you have seen don’t worry about this ^_^)

2) Genre’s you like/cant live without:
(so this is like action, romance, comedy, ect. if you don’t know anime wise tell me book/move wise what you like watching more of ^_^)

3) Is ecchi ok or not:
(simple question of do you care if there is ecchi in your anime, yes there is anime without ecchi…)

4) Other: (optional)
(the more information you give me about what you like and don’t like the better the recommendations will be such as whether you like sub’ed or dub’ed ^_^)

so just as an example:

1) Well there are a lot but a few of my favorites were air gear, Higurashi, Haibane Renmai, and School Days
2) I really like horror a lot but also like comedy every now and then.
3) No i dont have a problem with ecchi anime.
4) Not sure if this will help you but….
Just so you know I have seen the second season of/spin off of…
Cant think of anything else…
(just a few things you can put in that area ^_^)

This is how recommendations will look:

recommendation i just gave allyandnicky:

ok so I’m going to skip the bleach thing for now (may not come back to it as it is very hard to give recommendations based of that) but as for Saiunkoku Monogatari I have never watched that one my self but form what I hear The Twelve Kingdoms is a must see if you liked it and so is Hanasakeru Seishounen, both of those i have seen and are very well done. for Samurai Champloo i would recommend Seirei no Moribito aka Guardian of the Sacred Spirit, they have both have well done fight scenes, really good story lines, and if your really likes Samurai Champloo i can almost garantee that you will like this anime as well.

As for personal recommendations for you..hummmm…
ok here are a few I personally recommend you see if you have not already.
– Air (high on my list for romance lovers, it may be slow but very very good)
– Clannad (nice mix of comedy and romance that work really well together)
– Kaichou wa Maid-sama! (though it may be more on the comedy then you like it is very good in the developing romance area)
– Honey and Clover
– Nodame Cantabile
-Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka (this one im not sure if you would like…but i think it is a good romance/comedy mix even if it has the ecchi in it)

      ok sweet…though this probably does not count as the first one on the page as you are a fellow member of the blog and will eventually be helping on this but whatever….

      Gundam 00
      you need to watch Eureka Seven. NEED TO!

      Chrono Crusade
      I am hearing really good things about claymore but I haven’t seen it yet so i cant vouch for it.

      Ghost Hunt
      Shinrei Tantei Yakumo just because it is very very similer to ghost hunt and i would also say Higurashi Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and Jigoku Shoujo for the mind f**kery.

      Detective Conan
      Detective Academy Q and Spiral are some that i know people said were really good after watching detective conan.

      as for my personal recommendations for you:
      – clannad
      – Eureka Seven
      – Futakoi
      – Honey and Clover
      – and just for you School Days ^_^

      – Chi’s Sweet Home
      – Kaichou wa Maid-sama!
      – Vandread
      – Working!!
      – Nurarihyon no Mago

      – Bus Gamer though its only 3 episodes long
      – Chrome Shelled Regios
      – Nurarihyon no Mago
      – Togainu no Chi

      you may have seen some of these but they are very good and you need to watch them if you have not ^_^

      ok sweet ^_^

      Vampire Knight
      well there are two that you may like based of this anime
      1) Dance In The Vampire Bund not as much romance as Vampire Knight but still a very good anime with the supernatural creatures in it….
      2)Fruits Basket is another good anime it has a good balance of romance and comedy. This anime will grip you from start to finish.

      Death Note
      wow there is so much i can recommend that you go see with this anime….but honestly there are two that if you really liked this anime you will love….probably…
      1) Jigoku Shoujoaka hell girl is a very, very good dark anime. it has a similar premise to Death Note as well but the major difference is instead of one person having the power to kill anyone does through a web site that will send the person you name to hell.
      2)Darker Than Black this is one of my few all time favorites. this has a little more action then Death Note but everything that happens happens for a reason. this is so close to Death Note in the puzzle aspect that it is scary. honestly you will more then likely love this anime.

      i would say the same for Shiki

      Code Geass
      this one is a little harder as there is nothing really like it out there….but here are a few that you might like…
      1)Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann honestly if you have not seen this it is a must! This anime gets really weird in a good way but it has some similarities to Code geass (other then mechs) that you might like.
      2)Eden of the East AKA Higashi no Eden. This anime is about a kid that has been given a chance to save japan. There are a few similarities but its not as long as Code Geass so everything happens in a shorter amount of time. still worth a watch though ^_^

      Romance that make you think….ok here are a few of my picks, let me know what you think.

      – Air this is a very nice dram romance, it is a little slow paced but the ending is worth it

      – Kasimasi Girl Meets Girl It may start off like just a comedy but as the anime progresses there is a lot of romance and it does make you think a bit.

      – School Days A very, very, very dark romance anime that I think you will really enjoy. if you dont know where to start in this list WATCH THIS FIRST

      sorry this took so long….i had it typed out but have been so busy i forgot to post it….again sorry, hope you are still around and still want this ^_^

    1) A few anime that you have seen and liked:
    Kanon 2006, Clannad, FLCL, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, seitokai no ichizon (sorry about doing 5 haha)

    2) Genre’s you like/cant live without:
    Comedy, Dark animes, psychological.
    3) Is ecchi ok or not:

    4) Other: (optional)
    I have seen the second season of Higurashi, I have Monster, I have seen almost all super popular animes. I really like animes with symbolism. I only like animes with character development. I don’t mind watching animes without any action, I think they are better sometimes.

      07/21/2011 at 5:17 PM

      cool ^_^ hope you like some of these

      so lets start with kanon
      1) Air another must see, great character development and symbolism through out.
      2) ef – a tale of memories i watched some of this and it really is good just haven’t had the time to finish it to let you know everything…
      3) Myself; Yourself good anime with similar attributes to Kanon

      Clannad: (loved this anime but didn’t quite like season two as much…)
      1) Toradora! i think these two are very similar though this one has a bit more comedy.
      2) Angel Beats! one of my top ten anime it starts off as a comedy then slowly starts becoming more serous. the character development is great too. (i teared up at the end….just be warned)

      FLCL: great anime
      1) Dead Leaves movie. the randomness in both are the same…was still fun to watch.
      2) Paranoia Agent similar in that fact that you have no clue whats going on till the end. little more coherent though.

      Higurashi: my all time favorite anime
      ok so this branches off….
      if you liked this anime for the violence I would say watch Elfen Lied though not meny people liked it after the first half of the first episode I thought it was good enough to finish.

      if you liked it for the sure mindfuckery and characters then…
      1) Shiki has a lot of characters but it does a good job of developing the main ones.
      2) School Days very good mind fuck, also has several endings you can find on youtube if you don’t see them with the anime

      seitokai no ichizon:
      I have not watched this yet though it is on my to watch list as soon as i can get too it so im not positive what would be a good fit but it was recommended to me after watching Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka so i would check that one out.

      dark…right not actually a genre as it can be used to describe horror, mystery, psychological, Gore, ect. but ill give you some horror ones….

      – Ghost Hound
      – Ghost Hunt
      – Ookami Kakushi
      – Shiki
      – Umineko no Naku Koro ni

      these are some of my personal favorites


      – Akagi
      – Chaos;Head
      – Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
      – Kaiji
      – One Outs
      – Paranoia Agent
      – and the last two from the horror section as they are also psychological animes

      – Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan
      – Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu (second season…was the funniest though and worth the watch)
      – Great Teacher Onizuka
      – Kaichou wa Maid-sama!
      – Ladies Versus Butlers!
      – Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt (be warned very very perverted)
      – Skip Beat!
      – Vandread
      – XXXHOLiC

      thats a wide range of different comedies that i liked and hope you do too ^_^
