Hiya there! This thread is only for anime/manga lovers. Since I am a creator of my own manga with my sister I would like to find as many people on here who are interested in the two. I don't really have any outside friends who share my same interest so it would be nice to make some online.

Rules:
You can talk about any anime/manga that comes to mind.
I'm not really keen on yaoi, yuri, or hentai stuff so please keep those genres to a minimum.
Be curteous and respectful to other's ideas and opinions.
No offensive/foul language.

Thank You!!

To start off with the discussion please name your top three or favorite anime/manga and why. Also if you create your own manga or anime send me the link, I would love to check it out. XD

I actually don't like most anime/manga.

...but I like the animated Lupin the Third! Some of the plotting can get a bit strained and wonky, but DAMN if they aren't cool characters. Fukijo is sexy and dangerous, always a winning combo. I wish I'd had the power to make a live-action version starring Nicholas Brendon 15 years ago.

I also found a lot to enjoy in Expelled from Paradise, which I recently watched on Netflix. The script surprised me many times, which I tend to like, and the twist as to who was benevolent and who was the antagonist was really well done. It's been a long time since I got to eat Cheerios and watch robots I had never seen punch each other punch each other.

I'd love to get some recommendations for what a fan of Lupin the Third and Expelled from Paradise should watch next -- keeping in mind that I don't like Pokemon, Cowboy Bebop, or Macross Plus, and I have Netflix.

Haven't been able to enjoy the medium much, lately. Are they getting too repetitive? Am I just getting 'old'? IDK. I used to love me some of those classics. Namely Inuyasha, Trigun, and Fullmetal Alchemist. Manga can be great because the pacing feels more natural with less of the laughable animation or the "ON THE NEXT EPISODE OF DRAGON BALL Z!!!" cliffers.

The only newer series I watched and would recommend would be Sakamoto Desu Ga. It's a really short series; one of those over-the-top comedies about a model student who does.... things...
Basically just a bunch of this

The last anime I watched was that episode of the Kirby anime where a frog demon makes him commit grand theft auto and try to kill everyone.

What little I've seen of bnha was pretty good too.

KILL LA KILL

My favorite anime that isn't centered around Fujiko or Gundams.

Surprisingly deep for what initially appears to be a completely shameless vehicle for fan service.

That bit about Japanese school uniforms being essentially martial... is savagely on point.

I can never resist a chance to send some love to my fav because it gets no love-

Bokura no Kiseki -
If you're like me and are super weak to reincarnation stories, but are sick of weak psychology, complete romantic focus, no worldbuilding, and Gender Roles out your nose, this manga is amazing. It touches on all the "wouldn't it be cool if the story went here" for me. The adults are concerned and confused. People struggle with severe trauma, confused identity, and how feudal values conflict with... being in a high school where you can't just kill people or swear fealty. It's densely political, and is about slowly trying to unroll the mystery of the unremembered time leading up to all of their deaths. There's a bit of romance, but it's surprisingly light on dumb misunderstandings and terrible priorities, and filled with various parties acting on partial information, double agents, and shifting loyalties.

The biggest problem is keeping track of a huge cast, since there's about 20 characters who all have present identities and past identities, and you get the most out of the story if you can track all of them, but to me, it just makes the re-reads more fun.

I'm super picky when it comes to which anime or manga I would want to watch or read.

But my favorite ones tend to be obscure. Also a lot of these are shoujo.

Anime/Manga:
Vampire Princess Miyu, Ghost Hunt, Recovery of an MMO Junkie, How to Keep a Mummy, Blood+(shounen), Devil May Cry(seinen), Baccano!(shounen)

Manga:
Partner, Ludwig Kakumei, Gangsta(seinen)

I would second Gangsta, but if you don't like more mature themes, it's probably not for you, but otherwise, hard second.

Beelzbub- which is a comedy/action anime about demons, it got canceled sadly but it's still really good.
It's probably one of the most funny anime/manga I've seen and I love the characters.

Almost any manga by Junji Ito- horror manga tho some of them are so out there that they're funny. My favorite of his works is his Souichi stories, I find it funny how Souichi is trying to be this force of evil but he's like 12 so he almost always fails.

20th century boys & squeals- it's about a group of people trying to stop a cult that was inspired by their childhood games from destroying the world, it's a action/mystery manga. It's really captivating mystery ad has lots of interesting characters and themes, it's also amazing how the story takes place over a 50 year period.

The very last anime I was into is quite old and yet, ahead of its time. Mermaid Saga by Rumiko Takahashi (the same lady who wrote Ranma 1/2, Lum, Inu Yasha and many other treasures). What I liked about it was its obscurity and while it did deal with romance, it wasn't the focus. And I liked how she really took into a dark direction. It's a shame that she abandoned it really especially with where it left.

I actually haven't even heard of these. What genre are they? Are they big animes?

It seems you like comedy, action, and suspense like genres. I'm not really a fan of lupin and I've been wanting to watch expelled from Para but havent gotten around to it. I can recommend these that I think might be similar to those. Case closed, mushishi, xxxholicxxx, death note, and psycho pass. I absolutely love the last two. Two of my favorites. As for the first three I have not seen those completely through. I believe they should have a similar taste to lupin and paradise. I know for sure death note and mushishi is on netflix I don't know about the others. There are always free anime sites that let you watch for free. Sadly enough I don't really know any because I watch my anime on cruncyroll or funimation. :( Sorry. I hope you find and enjoy those.

Merged Doublepost:

Bolderousness:The most recent anime and manga I've watched and read are what I'm just going to write down.

One Punch Man - So OPM is definitely better watched because I think the outstanding and comical animation helps accentuate what is a very active manga. Not to say the manga isn't bad. It's pretty good stuff no matter how you experience it. I just feel it's obligatory to list it because I've been keeping up with it.

Mob Psycho 100 - So out of the four stories I've seen, this definitely ranks number 1. From the creator of One Punch Man, Mob Psycho 100 is a more character driven story with silly dialogue, indepth characters, and impressive emotionally delivered takeaways. The anime is definitely better looking than the manga because the manga's art is pretty mediocre in the first half while the anime was drawn by wildly professional animators. Overall, it's my favorite anime to date because of how well written it is. I'd recommend starting with the anime and then read ahead with the manga.

Cowboy Bebop - It's an experience. Diverse and memorable events in every episode, an awesome soundtrack, and decent writing. Overall enjoyable.

Devilman Crybaby - So this is some Netflix anime, and my god is it a thing. I wouldn't recommend it to the squeamish toward boobs and violence. It pulls no punches. I will leave it at that.

Merged Doublepost:



Pretty sure that's just the OP's signature.


I actually haven't even seen mob psycho Ive been wanting to give it a try. I heard so many good things about it. I really liked One punch man as well. Didn't know it was the same creator. You learn something new everyday. ^~w~^

Merged Doublepost:

I haven't read a lot of manga but here is some that I have. lovely complex, highschool debut, most of naruto shippuden, afterschool nightmare, I'm currently reading crimson hero, and there's this other manga I can't remember the name of it but I remember the author is korean and it was based on two females who look identically alike and one had to take the place of the other girl because they try to assasinate the royal/famous girl. Famous girl hires the look alike and the guy she is engaged to falls in love with the look alike. It's bugging me!!! I'm open to more manga suggestions. I like romance obviously. I probably would be more interested in one shots. If it's ongoing I tend to fall off and then take forever to start reading again.

the 20th century sounds very interesting. I think I might have to give it a try. Do you know if it is on Crunchyroll?

I've read plenty manga but there's too many out there I tend to forget the titles that I read because some of the titles are too long.

The ones that I could recall on top of my head and particularly enjoy reading includes Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun, Kumo Desu ga Nani ka?, Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken, Marry Grave, etc.

Wow. Top three...

evangelion mind blowing when I saw it as a young teen. I don't care if the mystery ran out of juice. I don't care if it's the obvious choice. It was great.

berserk horror, tragedy, blood, madness, homo romance. All the angst you need really.

excel saga absurdism, silliness, trying to fit the same characters into a different genre each week and still make a narative up on the fly. Awesome stuff.

4, because I'm scum
Death note just an exquisite show. Great idea.

@tibbitz

If you liked lupin the third, castle of cagliostro etc. You might like other old cop anime stuff, maybe gunsmith cats. I remember that being gritty and cool, but I was like 10.

Another I loved was Dirty pair flash, back in the day. Sounds like a porno I know but I think they were trying to evoke the idea of dirty harry. It's a space cop show with two detective partners. On revisit the first arc is crap but I'm sure there was some reason It's stuck with me.

80's madcap sci fi cop stuff your thing?

edit what am I thinking? Watch ecxel saga, please. The guy who adapted it from the manga loves lupin the third and put himself in the show as a main character wearing the pink zuit suit. The first episode involves him highjacking the plot by having the manga artist assasinated.

Ah yes, I really like bersek and fullmetal alchemist. Lately i've been watching attack on titan too. I understand it may be overrated, but I'm enjoying it. The titans are pretty fascinating.

I really need to take a moment to mention my favourite anime movie, Arashi no yoru ni (one stormy night.) It's the most beautiful love story i've ever seen, even though its a pretty straightforward starcrossed thing about a goat and a wolf, and most of it is just them talking so I'm not sure why it works, but... Argh, it really does. the music and animation is gorgeous, and the characters' friendship/relationship is so cute. The ending gets me emotional too. Its just a really good movie. It was never officially dubbed, but I believe there is a legally permitted fandub that can be found on youtube. I recommend.

Sadly 20th century boys never got a anime, tho you can find it on most manga sites.

A Y Y Y Y Y

so i'll basically watch any anime with good characters and pretty faces, my favorite genres are shounen/psychological but i'll watch some other stuff too

i can't really pick my three favorites off the top of my head, but let's say Kuroshitsuji and Death Note??? idk
i also love Kekkai Sensen, Zetsuen no Tempest, Assassination Classroom, and even though it's totally different from these, Gekkan Shoujo eheh

but is discussion of other anime-style japanese media relevant because gosh do i love Danganronpa and Kagerou Project (i mean both DO have an anime..... but i wouldn't say they're great -- haven't watched dr3 yet though)

i haven't kept up with recent anime at all though so if there's a new anime with pretty boys and psychological elements hit me tf up

oh yeah... i don't read manga though, i don't have the attention span;; wish i did...
