In search of new material
« on: August 18, 2011, 06:50:38 pm »
I've been in an Anime/Manga rut lately.  I need help discovering new series. 

Types of Anime that I like:
Trigun
Cowboy Beebop
Appleseed
Ghost in the Shell
Samurai Champloo
Black Lagoon
Inuyasha
Bleach
Naruto

Does anyone have some good suggestions?  Would love to hear a shout out from the forum.  Thanks!!

Gun Sword! Go check that out. I bet you'll really like it. Very much like Trigun. I'm only a couple episodes in, but I love it so far. Very fun, with some nice action too.

Also, I'd suggest Speed Grapher, Afro Samurai, Basilisk, and Utawarerumono. Good stuff!

Saw Gun Sword (Van = Spike) and Speed Grapher....good stuff.  Thanks for the others!

Just watched first episode of Basilisk....looks good.

Just wondering, because it might help in knowing what to ~not~ recommend... what types of anime have you watched and didn't like?
This is my serious voice. Otherwise, I'm just another anime fan, not a moderator.

This is about all I could think of off the top of my head.


Outlaw Star  like Cowboy Bebop/Trigun

Kekkaishi like Bleach

Sword of Stranger like Samurai Champloo

Hellsing Ultimate like Awesome
Team Koga

I second Outlaw Star. That's a great one, with some awesome action, well-done drama, and hilarious comedy...and even some romance!

You know...you would probably make a great Dutch from Black Lagoon.

I still need to see Gankutsuo. The bad part is...it's been on our shelf, part of our dvd collection, for well over 2 years, lol. I'm a bad anime watcher....

Ha, just looked Dutch up...that'd be a fun one. I haven't seen the show, but I'll have to check it out now. Thanks.  :)

I don't like to watch anime but i love Gankutsuou. It's so amazing. It hurt my eyes at first with all the crazy patterns but then i got used to it XD my best friend and I found it at the library and watched the whole thing in one night.

They should have given Dutch more air time in the show then they did...he's a cool character.
