In this thread, you recommend Anime. The rules are simple.

You post what Anime you would like to recommend

-or-

You recommend Anime to someone who wants to see a certain type of genre or plot.

-or-

You recommend an Anime you really, really like -- and tell us why we should consider watching it. ssmile.gif


Same rules apply for Manga.

I think Shojo-ai and Shonen-ai are ones that are not to be mentioned.

First thing is first. I recommend the Yu-Gi-Oh manga. Before you start to tear my lungs out, the first series (that was never dubbed) was cool, as it was people killing each other in violent ways. Better if you can get the Japanese version.

O-Parts Hunter/666 SATAN isn't a bad manga either. Despite the story revolving around the Catholic Devil, it makes no mention of Jesus, and has some pretty beasty fight scenes.

I've seen Princess Mononoke. I forget what it's about though.

If we are talking about Anime Movies, Samurai X is a must see. More blood in that then at a blood drive.

The Ranma manga has an interesting storyline, bigeyes.gif, and I will always recommend all forms of Naruto...

Samurai Champloo is a fun anime to watch too, ^_^.

Feudal Japan...but it's mainly based around a girl and two swordsman. It's extremely humorous while keeping things alive and action-packed.

In "most" cases, it's pretty realistic too... ssmile.gif

Nah, samurai champloo isn't that bloody. It was pretty good for an anime.

If you wan't bloody anime, then watch stuff like Hellsing.
As for good anime: One Piece is a good adventure one, Mushishi is pretty good, And for those people who like robots and sci-fi stuff, Eureka 7 is pretty good too.
As for mange...i don't really read that much. :O

One Piece is only good if you have access to the Japanese Anime. The English one is raped beyond all recognition.

The voices in Naruto dub where disgusting. I'm sticking to the manga so I can see Kakashi impale people in the chest with his freaky lightning jutsu.
