Any suggestions?

Postby neo2407 » Fri 08.25.2006 11:55 am

Hi. I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for good animes to watch. I'll give a list of the animes I've seen and like to give you an idea of what I like. (BTW the list is no actual order)

Tenchi Muyo! (All series except GXP or the Pretty Sammy stuff, not seen them yet)
Onegai Teacher (or Please Teacher if you prefer the english title)
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Dragonball (All series)
Shaman King
Naruto (only seen up to episode 20-30 of season 1, that's all that been shown on TV in the UK.)
Love Hina
Ichigo 100%
Chobits
And I've started to watch Ah! My Goddess (Or Oh My Goddess! or even Ah! Megami-sama, why does it have 3 names? I understand the Ah! Megami-sama, but why 2 english names?)
There may be a few more but I can't remember them right now.

Preferibly I'd like to watch them on YouTube or a similar website. I don't want to buy a DVD then find out I don't like it.
Now this next bit is probably suicide, but here goes...
I'd prefer to watch english dubs, but that's because I'm dyslexic and one symptom causes me to either miss words or transpose words causing me to missunderstand the sentence. Then later on in the story I think "Wait when did <insert character name> say that?" and it confuses the story for me. But I will watch subs if neccesary (eg. If the show hasn't been licenced in the US, so no dub. Or if the dub isn't posted on a website).

Thanks in advance to anyone who suggests any anime(s).

Umm...ok. I'm not sure if this is right, but are you saying that you watched Tenchi Muyo when you were 12 years old and that was 11 years ago? (or the numbers could be the other way round.) I'm not sure if that's right. I used a program on my PC to translate it but I'm not sure how accurate it is.
Sorry if I got it wrong.

When Tenchi was first released I was only a couple of years old, but here in the UK we got it about 5-8 years ago and I found the OVA series (the only series on DVD in the UK) on DVD earlier this year and I remembered how much I loved it.

Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo. Blew me away. There's a Cowboy Bebop movie that's really good, both have their series available on DVD.

I've heard the dubs for Bebop are great.

FullMetal Alchemist. Great series :) And I know they have the subs version of YouTube.. Not sure about the English, though. Sorry.

Sometimes I think that I'm afraid of thinking, and that scares me.

How about one titled in 3 languages, and uses 4:

Latin: Magister Negi Magi
English: NEGIMA![/url]

I'd say...go with Stg Frog(keroro gunso) for comedy. Its a bit childish but I still love it.
For action try Samarai Champloo or Cowboy Bebop both have many similarities.
Um it seems u like romantic comedies so Maburaho...just don't mind a lot of adult jokes...more than Chobits...a lot more.
And if u want some(more like a lot) bloodshed with some freaky undertones( I don't even understand what that means) go for Hellsing or if ur okay with nudity, Elfen Lied.
And thats about all. U've seen most of the others that i'd have suggested.

If I recall correctly that had a reasonable start but a crappy, crappy finish.

Some recomendations from my side: Saikano (a complex history but a great show), FullMetal Alchemist, Vandread and Vandread 2nd Stage, Cowboy Bebop. Some movie: Macross do you remenber love? OVAs: Angel Santuary, the ones of Samurai X (i can't remenber the name now). B)
