Very entertaining show

>>122566632
I know it can be intimidating, but it is separated in seasons of 24-26 episodes so you can watch one arc at a time (though you might not be able to stop once you start).
>>
>>122566047
To be honest, most of them that aren't huge in the west like Ghibli or Dragon Ball.
I've only gotten back into anime recently after a I stopped watching it in highschool so I've been marathoning tons of shit over the past two or three months.

Many classical mecha shows - Patlabor, Gundam, Macross.
This >>122566632
Utena
Akage no Anne

List goes on and on. I could spent hours remembering titles.
>>
>>122567187
embarrassing.

Lupin.

I don't really know where to start but I know it's long as hell and that sorta kills my motivation.
>>
>>122567256
>Patlabor

I watched like 20 episodes of Patlabor then got bored and quit.

Gundam and Macross are both good though.
>>
>>122567328
The first series or Miyazaki's film?
>>
>>122567157
TV series and EoE are as close as you will ever get to obligatory anime on /a/, might as well get that out of the way.

They're actually good.
>>
>>122567328
just watch Cagliostro and your good.
>>

>>122566540
Not a single show this season is worth watching.
>>
Nice recommendation thread faggot. Fuck off.
>>
>>122567330
You know you are supposed to watch Patlabor like the 7 episode OVA and then the two films right? The TV series is infinitely inferior.
>>
>>122567330
>I watched like 20 episodes of Patlabor then got bored and quit.
Watch the OVAs and the movies at least. The second movie at the very least.
>>
Haruhi.
>>
Cowboy Bebob is probably the big one i'm miss.
I did watch a few episodes many years ago but it's episodic story didn't appeal to me (i remember watching outlaw star back then so i guess i had my space western fix).
>>
>>122567328
Watch Cagliostro and then the new movie and then watch the new season that's coming out soon.
>>
>>122567388
Yuri Kuma most definitely is, the new Precure is, if we include ongoing from previous seasons Shirobako is and so is PriPara.
>>
if you can name it i've probably started it and not finished.

i hate when animes end

I stopped watching after yang wen li dies a pointless death.

It hit me hard and I just couldn't get back into the show.
Although I heard it turned to shit after that so maybe I made the right choice.

those all are shit.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer?

I'm at Episode 88, stopped for sort of the same reason.
>>
>>122567393

damn, i'm here like 34 episodes in feeling like this is another glasslip incident.
>>
>>122567492
Good point, nice talking to you.

>>122567497
No, why would it be a joke?
>>
>>122567500
started it never finished it.
>>
>>122567542
They are separate timelines anyway so you haven't done any damage. The two films are some of the best anime films ever made though.
>>
>>122567589
How long have you known Japanese?
>>
>>122567393
They're both great.
>>122567497
It's actually legitimately quite decent, this is coming from someone with very little interest in the franchise overall.
>>
>>122567667
how did you know

i never got past the kana
>>
GitS: SAC

I love the GitS movie. I don't know why I can't bring myself to finally watch it
>>
>>122567727
You can't watch Tom Sawyer without knowing Japanese only one goddamn episode ever got subbed and there is no dub.
>>
>>122567756
because of the jarring style and change in aesthetic
>>
>>122567767
oh what the fuck i thought you meant the book kek, i didn't even know there was an anime what the hell.

Never seen any version of Astroboy

>>122567814
It was part of the World Masterpiece Theater series in which tons of western literature classics were adapted into anime it was somewhat of a national institution in Japan. Rascal the Racoon for example got so popular that people started importing Racoon's for pets and upon realizing they made really bad pets the release them all into the wild like the kid does in the TV anime thus causing a huge invasive species Racoon problem in Japan. The series also included versions of Heidi, Girl of The Alps, Marco, Anne of Green Gables, Daddy Long Legs, Little Women, Tom Sawyer, Swiss Family Robinson, The Trapp Family, A Dog of Flanders, Princess Sarah. They are mostly really well made too.

>>122567898
The 2003 version is solid if you are willing to watch some fairly poor subs.
>>
i have trouble watching almost anything over 26 or so episodes
>>
>>122566047
Boku no Pico, no, i'm not joking, it's been on my backlog for a long time, I know it's a classic but for some reason I haven't got the feeling of doing so.
>>
Akira.
I've had it on both my laptop and PC at home for around 3 years and have been thinking I should watch it for more then that.
I think I'm afraid too watch it because I've hyped it too much for myself.
>>
Rose of Versailles
Wings of Honneamise
any Gundam
>>
>>122568152
You won't be dissapointed in hyping the animation but if you are hyping the whole thing the story will be a let down.
>>
Cowboy Bepop.

I hate episodic shows.
>>
>>122566947
I tried to watch Ideon once then I got bored but I was kind of newshit then and hadn't even seen all of UC Gundam so maybe I should retry it soon.

how is that even possible?

Not really a 'classic', but I regret leaving Sakesama no Patema until after all of the discussion about it had long passed.

>C.A.T

Forever shall live in my heart as the first manga that I fell in love with who had an abrupt ending without me knowing why.
I did not know what a hiatus was at that time. Thought that just nobody was translating it so I just had to be patient until someone translated the rest of it.
I now know better, but in truth, I'm still somehow hoping for even 1 more ;_;

Trigun and Outlaw Star.
