Deathnote.

How do you decide good world building?
>>
NGE
>>
>>121332852
SnS and Angel Beats! Not best but nobody else will mention them. Top-tier.

LoGH is also an obvious answer.
>>
>>121333106
>logh
>good worldbuilding

Pick one, the only parts that make it remotely sensible are in the novels and didn't get into the anime.

The correct answer is probably Universal Century gundam, 0079 and shit.
>>
>>121332852
I think Psycho-Pass has done a decent job.
>>
Gargantia
>>
>>121332852
I personally liked Space Adventure Cobra's world building alot.
>>
type moon
>>
LOGH, Juuni Kokki or Kemono no Souja Erin had good worldbuilding.
>>
Aria
>>
Shinsekai Yori has amazing world building. Psycho Pass does a pretty good job too.
>>
Dragon Ball
>>
>>121332852
from the new world
gargantia on the verduous planet
planetes
terror in resonance

If it does this shit well.

To mention one not already posted, I was pretty impressed with Log Horizon's world building. It was the first time an MMO anime felt remotely interesting to me, despite the one-dimensional characters.
>>
Sora no Woto
>>
Fate
>>
>>121332852
this season, it would be Akatsuki no Yona
>>
If you put together the original Gundam's timeline it makes for some great worldbuilding.
>>
>LOGH
>good world-building

That's a good joke. The world is too bland and falls close to a dichotomy. It's not good world-building. It's mediocre at best.

From a New World is a good example in anime about decent worldbuilding.

on SSY

>Physics
Cantus, PK (death feedback)

>Cosmology
queerat colonies administration committee (mostly politics), the coming of age ritual/sign

>Geography
Same, Dystopian Earth

>Culture
Karma Demon, the handling of problem child, taboo library (false minoshiro) , fiend, karma demon
>>
Seirei no Moribito was pretty good in that aspect.

Have you read the novels, or even got past the first dozen episodes of the anime? LOGH doesn't explain everything up front; it assumes you are paying enough to fill in the blanks. Later on it has a number of episodes about the more mundane aspects of life in the Empire and Alliance, as well as a few info dumps presented as historical documentaries.
>>
>>121336977
I agree, but I really wish to see what happened outside of Japan.
>>
>>121332852
Shinsekai Yori and Eureka 7
Also nice recs guys
>>
>>121336977

the cultural shit is all explained by the end of the series but how do i decide that this is a decent or even good worldbuilding?

didn't they search for psychobuster in USA?
>>
>>121337291
Who, Kiromaru's clan? I don't remember that being mentioned.
>>
>>121332852
S&W looks pretty good in my opinion. Not sure about best, this would be outside my knowledge.
>>
One Piece

>>121337291

Only two years later I realize Squealer was an animal farm reference.

Last Exile.

One of the best examples of show not tell worldbuilding in anime.
>>
>>121337087
Yes? The entire backstory to the war makes no sense with anime only information dude.
>>
>>121337291
No. The psychobuster was developed in the US and brought to Japan. They searched for it there.

Last Exile I. Rewatching it is very rewarding. I picked up all the little things I missed.

Last Exile II? Haha.

No, of course I meant the first series.

Fuck Silver Wing, I am still mad.
>>
Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon has some ridiculous amounts of worldbuilding. Raildex also has quite a lot, maybe Mahouka if you consider magic explanations to be a form of worldbuilding.

Madoka and Rebellion were pretty tight.

>>121337998

thinly veiled rec thread is rec thread?
>>
>>121338050
Jizzey is the only good thing from it.

And seeing crippled MC who we still don't know why he is crippled. At least Lavie won.
>>
>>121332852
As I'm currently rewatching Texhnolyze, it is definitely a master at world building, and it does so by not taking its audience for retards, following the rule of showing not telling.
>>
>>121332852

Ghost in the Shell
>>
>>121338114
Gisey was cute, and Millia's character development was decent.

But yes, the rest was terrible.
