I'm watching samurai champloo for the first time.
I'm pretty new to anime, i'm almost entirely caught up on naruto, about 200 episodes into one piece.
Was told to watch samurai champloo, it seems neat so far, watching ep. 1 right now.
I watched Zach bell a long time ago, but didn't really like it. Also liked the full metal alchemist a lot, but wasn't a fan of the english dub, which is easier for me to watch (i know i know) because I watch anime when i go to bed a lot, and i can't see the tv to read subs without glasses.
Any other recommendations for a relatively new anime watcher?
cowboy beebob and hellsing Yu Yu Hakusho
Space dandy have good dubs
not sure about dubs
Hunter x hunter is a good show. Attack on titan isnt a great show imo but I imagine its good for newfans
He's an /a/utistic elitist who knows that the anime Sekrit Club on 4chan doesn't allow using emoticons and you don't know it so basically he's trying to say "haha look people he's a newcomer let's bully him".
The anime board is full of a bunch of fucking idiots.
(Although it is gut-wrenchingly obvious how new to anime you are. I really haven't tried out Naruto but I just can't imagine watching 200 episodes of a "fighting teenagers" show bringing you forth very much in life. Then again I'm speaking as someone who watched all of Gintama.)
In the end of the day, watch whatever the fuck you enjoy. Could be about the daily life of school girls doing silly things like K-On! or Nichijou, could be about ultra-brutal crime, warfare and suffering like Fate/Zero or Psycho-Pass.
As a very general rule though, what tends to get popular among young adults in the west tends to be frequently of very low quality, because they gobble up edgy shit for being edgy and oh so mature. (Attack on Titan and Elfen Lied might be two examples, maybe, I haven't really watched the former and it's been 7 years I watched the latter, so I can't really judge.)
Browsing through all the shit in /a/ might give you some ideas on what's good after all, or not, I'm not sure. If I knew any good anime communities I'd tell you but I don't know any.
That isn't why that poster said to go back to reddit. That poster was greentexting an emoticon, specifically this one :) and then telling them to go back to reddit. They made no mention of hating /a/. I invite you to please read more carefully before throwing out flippant accusations. You're a little on edge right now and it's helpful to take a deep breath and relax so that you can view the world more sensibly. Everybody makes mistakes. Thank you for trying to help make this board the best board it can be. In the future, please examine your actions and what effect they have on other people and see if that's what you're trying to accomplish or if you're working against your best wishes. Good luck out there.
Anon, I think it's you who needs to take deep breaths. What's ambiguous about
>Go back to Reddit
Clearly, they were telling me, the one complaining about /a/, to go back to Reddit, for no other reason than complaining about /a/.
And then you try to be all high and mighty. Sheesh, it's like I'm in kindergarten.
Heyo! Samurai champloo is very nice! You may like Gurren lagaan, but the dub isnt that great. Cowboy bebop has an excellent dub and its quite nice!
You may like seeing trigun as well. Its quite fun and the dub is very serviceable. I would suggest looking into some anime movies or ovas, as they tend to have both good scenarios and good dubs! plus they arent 200+ episodes (a plus for me, and when you have a lot of things to watch it will probably be a plus for you too).
This one is pretty noob friendly, and yet devoid of most popular noobtraps.
cowboy bebop you fool, can't believe they recommended you samurai champloo over it, it's not bad but cowboy bebop is one of the best (if not the best) anime ever made from the same creator.
Thanks. Anything you'd like to see changed?
At first these charts were posted here (on /a/) by other anons to be made fun of, but after a while (and proving that it's me) I've gotten some valuable input about my other works (pic related, old screencap of an outdated version of the other project). So if you have any objections about the rainbow-colored chart, go ahead.
