never watched anime before, always thought it was gay as fuck like MLP but I have nothing to do today so maybe I'll try some
I've whittled it down to 3
>Ghost in the Shell
dubs decides which one
woke up at 2 today, got all night
Haven't seen the other two to be fair, but Cowboy Bebop is one of the better shows to watch for people that aren't really into anime and all the awful tropes and perversions that come with it.
thats the thing that turned me off to it in the first place
the stupid waifu shit, the little asian girls with white faces and the stupid facial expressions and lame jap noises they make
i want to watch something somber
Well I think that's all of those shows to some extent. Bebop is space noir, GitS is dystopian crime scifi, and Berserk is medieval fantasy. A lot of shows can have serious or somber moments, but almost all of them will fall prey to some sort of trope, be it a reflection of their culture or some sort of fanservice. Paranoia Agent was an interesting psychological thriller, but if you can't get over the tropes, you're gonna have a bad time with any of them.
>the stupid waifu shit
Has nothing to do with anime itself.
>the little asian girls with white faces
In the vast majority of cases they're teenagers, and in almost every case Japanese. And they don't have white faces. Nor do they have Japanese faces, or any other faces that belong to any real people.
>and the stupid facial expressions and lame jap noises they make
>i want to watch something somber
Guess what: they speak Japanese in the "somber" anime as well.
It seems like you're more into regurgitating memes than watching anime.
im not into watching anime, can you not read? ive never watched it before, why the fuck would i know about it
all i see about it is cancerous faggots on here posting about cute dicks using anime pictures
>we're talking about the stupid fucking noises they make.
>im not into watching anime, can you not read?
Then what in the fuck are you doing here asking what anime you should watch?
>ive never watched it before, why the fuck would i know about it
Then why are you spouting all these memes about it?
>all i see about it is cancerous faggots on here posting about cute dicks using anime pictures
So you relate to the world entirely through 4chan posts. Great.

where do you think you are, faggot?
/r9k/ has been my only form of social outlet since i was 15 years old
a lot of my views come from here
Uh yeah, and in this case I'm talking about anime tropes which is clearly not what OP is into. So if he can't look past those tropes, then it will hold his appreciation of these shows back.
OP, since you haven't seen any anime before you haven't seen Welcome to the NHK, but you really need to. You'll enjoy it more than anything else on your list.
That or Ping Pong the animation.
Of those three I'd say go with Ghost in the Shell
I'd also highly recommend Texhnolyze if you can deal with really slow pacing (especially at first). It's incredibly depressing though, just to warn you, but it's probably my favorite anime
Jojo's bizarre adventure
the most masculine anime there is
