I'm looking for tips on ungeneric anime, series that have their own feel.
  • Mushishi
  • Tatami Galaxy
  • I guess Satomi Kuns stuff, even if it's self-similiar
  • Serial Experiments Lain counts I think
  • Monogatari series has a pretty unique tone
  • . . . have seen more but can't recollect at the moment.
Stuff that just seem to be their own thing, not just another variation. Gotten too much of that feel lately. Characters that are just another smug, or another tsundere, without even an effort to make them differ.

Please tip me anime that breaks the mold in some way, or totally disregards it

Last episode of Shokugeki got me really pumped up, finally the climax we've been waiting for, and more time spent on cooking and not lame high school shit. I'm a bit worried they'll rush the last episodes though, does anyone know how many episodes are left?

Check out Space Dandy if you haven't allready. Also, watch the English version.
Maybe One Punch man also?

Going to pop in here instead of making a new thread. I like adult themed cartoons but I've only just dipped my toe into anime.

I've seen: Starship Troopers OVA, Ghost in the Shell(mostly SAC), Blade OVA, and a few others I can't think of at the moment.

Tried the Tokyo Ghouls, Evangelions, and Cowboy Bebop but haven't been able to get into them. B the Beginning was okay.

Here is the only thing. It has to be dubbed in English. When I watch this stuff I am not in a state to be trying to read subtitles with one eye open.

I'm really into sci-fi especially spacefaring and also long story arcs as well as cyberpunk. I love things like Babylon 5, Space Above and Beyond, Trek, Stargate, etc.

You're beyond help, but try Akira, Ergo Proxy, Planetes, Guyver (the originals from the 80s), Appleseed, Space Dandy, Serial Experiments Lain, Elfen Leid, Aeon Flux, or Parasyte. Pretty sure you can get most of those dubbed, you degenerate savage.

One Punch Man was great. Haven't watched Space Dandy though, remember searching around for something to watch after Bebop and that was recommended, put it on the backlog and forgot about it. Will give it a go!
I actually started with that one some years ago but didn't remember to redown it after a disk format, it fits the bill from what I remember.

Thanks for the recs!

I'd wager you'd like Planetes, don't know if the dub is any good though

Its not like I mind watching things with subtitles sometimes but when I'm in the state that I enjoy animation/would enjoy anime I'm not in any state to read subtitles so without a dub I have no idea what is going on. Sorry if that offends you its just hard to read with one eye open nodding out.

I have seen both Akira and Aeon Flux and liked both of those and also Appleseed but I don't think I saw the two other Appleseed movies. I only really watched the first two eps of Cowboy Bebop before I posted so maybe I'll try it again.

I'll check out some of your suggestions. A couple of them look like something I would be interested in.

Whats FLCL stand for?

Thanks, I'll check it out. Sounds pretty decent.

Also Space Dandy is so far up your alley it should make you breakfast the next morning. The English dub is widely regarded as better than the Japanese dub, it has stoner friendly visuals, AND multiple dimensions, Buddhism, and the Singularity all are major themes. Yet it's presented under the veneer of boobies, alien hunting, and comedy. I've probably watched this series all the way through 10 times since it premiered 4 years ago. Although a couple of those times were cause it's basically like a bad trip cure for me.

I tried both and still found the Japanese better
One day I'll find a dub I enjoy and I thought this might be it, but it wasn't. But then maybe I'm just too fussy, I'm sure that for people who don't have a problem with dubs, then this one will be fantastic

Actually thinking about it, I have watched one or two episodes of Cowboy Bebop dubbed and didn't want to tear my hair out, so maybe there can be hope (I still like the sub more though, but hey it's something)

I just pick the VO that actually sounds like how I imagine the characters should.

The dub of Cowboy Bebop is better than the Japanese one because the dub has voices that actually sound like the grizzled John Wayne/Humphrey Bogart Western Noir characters the show is about.

Conversely, the Evangelion dub kinda sucks because they all sound like 30 somethings putting on whiny kid voices, not like the actual whiny kids the characters are supposed to be.

Sometimes, like with Serial Experiments Lain, they both have the required atmosphere and I go with english so I can pay attention to more than the bottom inch of the screen.

Imagine if all dubs from this moment forward had to be done with the original Japanese voice actors.
If they don't know English, they juat have to parrot the sounds without knowing what they're saying.

Too high to read all this crap, but I SERIALS commend watching the latest GRArcada video on spring/summer anime (who the fuck knows what season this is supposed to be).

I don't usually like this guy, but there's a LOT of good stuff going on I can even recommend to buddies who don't watch anime:

Golden Kamuy (11 episodes so far)
Gun Gale online (different writer and all)
Hinamatsuri (awesome comedy)
I liked the original Steins; gate, but I'm not a big fan of this new one though.

Anyway, watch that vid and decide for yourself, it's really a bit of a revival of good anime.

Watched Vampire Hunter D. from 1985 and VHD Bloodlust from 2000 just now. Bloodlust has some really neat animation. Kinda corny, but not that much by anime standards. Self explanatory by the title. D hunts vampires. Only one per movie though.

What's kinda fun is that they use mechanical horses. It's never talked about or anything, it changes nothing in any way except they're just machine horses. In a way it's really nice that they just put it in there and then just say "eh", shrugging their shoulders. But real talk it does look kinda silly.

I really struggle to get the appeal behind SEL. I tried getting into it multiple times since it should be right down my alley, but it just feels shoegaze bland. Yes, the art style is good, it's consistent and got a nice shoegaze soundtrack, but what do people with similar taste to me like about it? What makes it special? The characters and world feel so empty. GITS, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Steins; Gate etc. feel miles better to me. The most direct comparison in terms of genre would be GiTS, which I would place way above SEL.

Also, just finished Megalo Box. From start to finish, just fucking sick. It felt like a long badass movie with a bunch of unexpected things happening. So many REALLY good anime this season, but I think this one deserves the top spot. I don't even like boxing or much of sports but 10 minutes into episode one and I was sold.

I don't like your usual waifubait anime, but I do want to watch anime where I might end up crushing on a character. The thing is, when it comes to fictional characters, I tend to like ones (usually but not always women) who are kind of... bad people, especially amoral, slightly deranged free spirits.

Like my biggest fictional crush is Cheryl Tunt from Archer, for example. The closest any anime I've ever seen has gotten was Lina Inverse.

Any annie moo you can recommend based on that?

Oh, and my favorite anime series ever are Slayers, Samurai Champloo, and Samurai Flamenco.

So how'd y'all feel about FLCL: Progressive? I'm honestly too drunk right now to give a decent review, but I did watch the whole thing. Aiko (?) was this season's Ninamori, IMO.

There's a kind of osmosis jones-y show airing this season and the first episode was pretty fun. Seems like it's gonna be a crime of the week kind of show and I hear the manga is gud

Boku no hero is a boring and predictable shounen anime. but if you ignore the shallow Mc, the token angry cunt, and the yaoi bait you'll find decent entertainment in all the side characters.

I stopped watching this season
First two seasons were alright I don't really understand the hype but they were just OK for me. Watched like five or so episodes of season 3 and started to question why I'm even watching it if I don't thoroughly enjoy it
All power to those who do though. I've never been a huge shonen person in the first place

If you want more straight comedy, try Excel Saga.

I wouldn't say Excel is Cheryl Tunt on drugs, but she's certainly her voice actor on drugs.

Since the topic is Chinese anime, I'll give a recommendation.

"Uncharted Walker" (Mi Yu Xing Zhe)

It's your typical survival game type show done right. The animation is pretty decent too for actual chinese cartoons. I'm hyped for a season 2 if there is one.

Watched the first episode of "Overlord" due to someone posting a webm of it on /b/

Ended up binge-watching the whole of Series 1, 2, and the first episode of Series 3. Very much enjoying it. So much so that I've ordered the first volume in light novel and manga format in order to see which one I like reading best.

I don’t really watch anime but I watched the first episode of Dropkick on My Devil! since it was playing in /wooo/tube as the joshi promotion Stardom has involvement with the show. It’s a comedy I get that but what a weird show it is.

Watching comedy anime is like looking into an alternate cultural timeline in which Ingmar Bergman moonlighted as a Looney Tunes director.

Incidentally, my favourite comedy anime at the moment is Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.

Tried it. Not sure how I feel about it yet. Needs a few more eps.

So what's everyone watching this season? Here's my list:
>Asobi Asobase: 3 cute girls make reaction faces
>Happy Sugar Life: yanrezu loli mindbreak hentai
>BanG Dream: chibi idols are cute for 3 minutes a week
>Cells at Work: the meme show of the season
>Chio-chan's School Road: girl gamer does dangerous and autistic things
>Sunoharasou no Kanrinin-san: innocent shota raped by buxom blonde
>Grand Blue: t-totally not gay comedy about being in a frat
>Backstreet Girls: 3 kakkoi yakuza get magically transformed into 3 kawaii idols
>Lupin the III Part V: Lupin doesn't try to fuck the teenage girl who wants to fuck him
>Yama no Susume: a poor man's Yuru Camp
I think the one I'm looking forward to most right now is Chio-chan because it feels so fresh. Still not crazy about this season, but I guess 3 hours a week of above average TV is plenty.

Watching some Blue Submarine No. 6, and it's putting a lot of force behind that first impression. Nothing like that oldschool anime edge. Hits you straight in the gut.

. . . this CG. It's almost so bad it feels like they stuck anime in a PS1 game, which almost makes it feel okay.

Fuck, it's actually endearing at this point.
Never thought I'd enjoy bad CG this much.
Like nostalgia for a game that never existed.

Too many characters for so few episodes. The stories between Ide and Hidomi/Haruko and Julia should have taken more precedence over the side characters. Nothing really got laid out besides Haruko is still chasing Atomsk.

"How Not To Summon A Demon Lord" is great, it's another isekai but more in the vein of Overlord and Kono Subarashi.
Just wanted to pop in to recommend it, only 2 episodes so far but it's great.

Even Haruko seemed more subdued than she was in the first series. I hoped they'd play with more animation styles, speaking of which, what happened to the photocopied Medical Mechanica hand? Most of the animation style changes came during Hidomi's short dream sequences. I hope they're just setting up for season 3/

Think I might drop Island. The plot seems like absolute nonsense.
Current favorite is either Hataraku Saibou or Hanebado. I didn't think a show about fucking badminton of all things could be so well put together

God I hope there's something watchable this season. Spring had soooo much good shit. Well, watching Darling in the Franxx now after seeing Gigguk's complete annihilation of the show. 4 episodes in and looking good. Even though it's clearly ripped off a shit-ton of things from Eva it's really enjoyable so far. Also pretty nice to have the MC actually not be useless pussy for the duration of the entire series.

I just enjoy the fact that it made tumblr and shippers rage.

Also my hero academia manga has people losing their shit right now.
Its kinda interesting as I watch the anime being caught up with the manga. Academia managed to actually be almost near hxh in terms of its world being pretty brutal and characters flawed as fuck.

Currently starting naruto subbed from the start.

Don't do it man! That's approx 2 million hours of your life you're never going to get back! Think of your family!

Also I really like Ichigo's voice, was surprised to see that she didn't do voice acting in any other anime.

I heard people say that, but I honestly didn't think it was that bad. Maybe it's because I came in prepared to be disappointed though.
