Good thread.

I generally prefer stuff that contains an engrossing and detailed 'culture' in it. A vivid and unique backdrop that frames and influences the characters and their relationships to each other. Gargantia is a pretty good example of that.

Obviously when the anime is set in a Japanese countryside where the background noise is always SKREEEEEE SKREEEEE SKREEEEE SKREEEEE SKREEEEEE.

Dystopian societys
>>
Grimdark futures (like old 80s postapocalypse anime, Regios, God Eater or Needless with evil corporations taking over the world) and generic medieval fantasy are kind of tied to me.

Basically because on those you can pretty much insert anything and still works, and the most important because those settings are more prone to adventuring which is what I actually seek, you know the traveling meeting places and characters.

- Dystopia, not soft dystopia like psycho pass but maximum despair dystopia like now and there, here and there.
- Medieval fantasy setting with some hight level technology mixed in like Escaflown or Utawarerumono. Generic medieval fantasy is fine too.
- Fun space opera following the crew of a little ship like outlaw star and captain Taylor.

Like beatiful girls that secretly work as superfamous idols, beatiful girls that secretly work as superfamous mangaka/doujinshi, beatiful student council presidents that lead interanational corporations, beatiful hacker girls that can easly infiltrate the CIA computers and beatiful girls that can cut a building in a half with a japanese sword?

I really loved Fractales setting. Eureka 7 is pretty dank too.

setting ranging from late 1800s, to early 1950s.

Preferably a lot of countryside, technological advancements and a general atmosphere of change. Things like magic or 'technology' are alright but I prefer realistic advancement.

>I will also sound like tumblr but I like too when women are not helpless and can get shit done.

What? Are you really talking about anime because its been decades since the female characters in anime can wreck shit, scroll any season and you will see a ton of shows were girls can beat several armed trained men by their own. In fact you can find more powerful female characters than male characters.

Males having the upperhand only happens in battle shonen and right now, those are very few compared with shows with overpowered girls. (Talking about anime and LN, I guess on manga things are more even)

In the last season mushi were lot more antagonistic than in the first one, I remember in the first one they were more like a natural phenomenom, a disease, in the last season they felt more like evil creatures wich only purpose is to fuck humans.

Not sure I'd call it my favorite, but I've been a fan of generic fantasy since forever and this "trapped inside a MMO" trend depresses me.

It's a fact that the best Anime series all take place in a Magical highschool with MMO-Esque Anime taking second place.

Sorry, I just read what I wrote and realized that with a small amount of effort, I could take that jumbled stream of consciousness and shape it into something comprehensible by others. One second:

Medieval/Victorian settings where everything is super comfy and chill but when shit goes down it becomes really tense.
Loved the hell of of Spice&Wolf and Gosick because of that to name a few.

>>133886821
To be fair lot of those highschool anime have solid settings with some interesting world rules and premises, problem is how the plot develops pretty much ignoring the setting and instead sit the characters inside the school doing barely anything.

>>133886573
This "trapped inside a game" is exactly the oposite, the plot trends to move well whith characters adventuring and facing hardships but the setting is poorly executed because it only creates game rules and battle systems that characters ignore most part of the time.
>>
Man, Gargantia had such a promising setting.
If only it focused more on the hideauze earlier and expand more on that rather than those filler episodes for more than half a cour.
>>
>>133884893
Those whores just ruined the anime dude. Instead of it being about Ledo wrecking shit with his robot it became a fan-service hippie festival anime.

If there's one thing Fractale did right, it was the setting.

>>133891166
I would've preferred if it just focused on the whole Evolvers vs. Alliance setting and how that escalated into one gigantic transhumanist fuckfest spanning how many solar systems.

I think they expected to have more than one season and it blew their faces.

Is the risk you take with this "lets move the story as few as we can so we can do a lot of seasons"
>>
>>133891308

This.
The Zergsquid/Terran conflict was far more interesting that whatever the main story devolved into.

Post-apocalyptic world, but most anime do it really bad.

My second favorite setting is something ghostbusters like with a gloomy atmosphere, where the MC has to fight supernatural monsters.
