18 and in Uni, last girl I was with introduced me to your Mongolian Cartoons with AOT. I actually really enjoyed it, thought I would hate it. I enjoyed Spirited Away a lot as a kid. I liked them both for their great writing and story (in my eyes). I want to try and get more into anime, but I'm not sure where to begin really (girl is no longer an option), can you help me out with some suggestions?

>>27423
coyboy bebob and samurai champloo and Black Lagoon are a good start here are some rec lists http://animu-mango.wikia.com/wiki/Anime_Recommendations
There is no reall wrong way to start. just watch whatever catches your interest and go from there
its kind of hart to recommend things with that limited amount of info
>>
>>27435
ok, thanks for the help. Would you be able to be more specific if I went more into detail with what I'm interested in? If not, I appreciate the help anyways, /a/ is just giving me a bunch of gay porn at the moment
>>
>>27436
Sure tell me what you're into
>>
>>27439
thank you! Well I'm not really into the animation part (the actual film) more into the plot and story itself. The more realistic it looks, the more I like it. I loved AOT because I felt like it had a great story and was well written. It wasn't just cartoons with huge eyes dancing around. Looking for things that get you involved into the story and characters, that goes into a lot of depth in the story. Hopefully this helped some, since I have seen very little I guess I'm not sure what I'm into.

>>27440
so no cute girls doing cute things gotcha
Do you care if its dubbed or subbed?
>>
>>27441
yeah exactly haha, I want realistic and captivating. I don't care, no, both are fine with me. As long as the english isn't butchered and I can still be involved in the story
>>
>>27443
Psycho-Pass
parasite
Princess mononoke
usagi drop
Trigun
fullmetal alchemist
Hope You find one of these interesting

>>27446
thanks man, I really appreciate it

>>27423
Do the following:
Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood- Great for beginners, English Dub
Steins;Gate- SciFi and easy enough yet complex
Cowboy Bebop- A classic with English Dub
Fate/Zero- its so well animated
Neon Genesis Evangelion- A classic...maybe wait a bit, it is essential eventually tho
Madoka Magica- Its super good (stick it out to Episode 3)
One Punch Man- This years AOT (HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION)
Toradora- if you want to try a good romance
Tokyo Ghoul- Good for beginners i suppose

As far as movies go:
5cm Per Second
Paprika
Sword of the Stranger
Girl who Leapt through time

>recommending madoka to someone who has never watched a magical girl anime
>recommending eva to someone who never watched a mecha anime
>>
>>27452
no idea what this means, what do you recommend?
>>
>>27454
You can still enjoy them blind but being familiar with the genres they are from adds to the experience is all.
>>
>>27457
ok cool, I'll try to do a little background searching for these, thanks

The thing is, there's this cultural difference that sort of impels anime to have depth, even the cute girls doing cute things ones. Western media tends to focus on what people do (plot stuff), with fairly simplistic characterizations. Designated hero is unrealistically good, designated villain kicks puppies for no reason. Eastern media tends to be more concerned with people, so whatever anime you watch should be dealing with its characters on deeply personal levels. This is a large factor in why many of us were drawn to anime to begin with, the greater level of moral complexity. You get villains who are, in effect, alternate viewpoint heroes. These paradigms have only in the past decade or two really begun to shift, to the great improvement of Western television.

You're going to see a lot of anime with a lot of talking. If you're okay with that, then good. Most /m/ stuff gives you wartime feels (conflict and comradeship). You should try romance stuff, Peach Girl or Toradora, and see if that's something you can stand.

The thing I recommend most, personally, is Ergo Proxy. Also, anything involving Satoshi Kon, most particularly Millennium Actress.

As for EVA, under the giant "robots" killing giant "aliens" is a long meditation by the director on his difficulties making meaningful human connections with the people around him. This and Welcome to the NHK are supremely depressing if you have these kinds of issues, which many of us do. Dare to dip your toes into dangerous waters; if you come out the other side, you come out clean.

Listen to this for the first time.

Bear in mind that Eva invented the angsty-robot genre.

Yes, it was a critique of Real Robot, but that's not really that important. You don't need to have seen any real robot shows to get Evangelion, and if you're utterly unfamiliar with the genre, just watch Pacific Rim.

It was loads of people's first mecha anime, because when it came out on VHS, it was loads of people's first anime.
>>
>>27452
you are right
>>27462
save Evangelion and Madoka for a bit, start with Full metal Alchemist and Steins Gate
