In contrast to the recent shit tier anime thread, lets go for God Tier anime.
Let us commence.
My top favorites are Attack on titan, Sword art online, and Deadman wonderland. All are stellar but only watch the first 14 eps of sword art online. The ending is literally the best ending ive seen in a show
I was about to make my own thread
There's no such thing as God Tier anime. There are some anime that succeed in finishing without being too terrible.
That would be Cowboy Bebop and maybe a couple other things.
Great choices my friend.
Shoutout to Hellsing Ultimate
God-tier in the eye of the beholder etc.
Can't go wrong with Berserk. I occasionally rewatch it while waiting on manga updates.
Long stretches of the manga are spent inside action scenes, such that entire chapters go by at times covering only a few seconds. A shit-tier anime studio would stretch this out, but the Ippo series have been somewhat quickly paced.
It's harder to say that the manga doesn't feel "dragged on". Currently up to chapter 1086 (scanlated).
Maybe you're assuming no one here's actually familiar with HnK. It's not god tier. Certainly not after Raoh.
I'm not bashing it, though. It was a very influential shounen for its time.
I thought I was the only one who watched it
I always thought Ao no Exorcist was really good. Satan's story was pretty sad.
Both seasons are good, aciidently downloaded the second season again because i thought it was the 3rd ;-:
3rd season in the summer though lads
I'm a mangafag and usually am the first to call adaptations shit, but Hajime no Ippo is one of the rare exceptions where I'd recommend the anime over the manga. The only problem with the anime is they cut out and wrote around an important fight in the Rookie King tournament. Its absence creates some narrative problems.
By the way, Onepunch Man is 10/10, and the story beyond the current chapter is already published, so we know it's going to keep being absolutely glorious.
>Ghost in the Shell
>Neon Genesis Evangelion
>Full Metal Alchemist
>Yu Yu Hakusho
>1979 Mobile Suit Gundam
>Future Boy Conan
>The Tatami Galaxy
only decent one is Deadmen Wonderland, Sword art and Attack on Hype, are Bullshit.
Really God Tier:
Angel Beats (Drama/ Cry like a little bitch)
Neon Genesis Evangelion (Psycho, Robots)
Guilty Crown (Action)
Clannad (Cry like a little bitch)
Kaze no Stigma (It's meh, but i like a Strong Protagonist)
Death Note (Criminal)
Stop with the fucking -tier threads. Talk about weebshit. No one gives a shit that you like entry tier, or normalfag tier Bebop stuff. Those things aren't bad, but
>moefags and shounenshit amirite
Just. Talk. About. Weebshit.
Holy shit the tatami galaxy blew my mind and its only 11 episodes long.
Parasyte the maxim has been pretty cool so far!
The tatami Galaxy. Watch the pilot episode here. Its a fucking trip.
Called Working!!, show about people working at a family resturant. The characters and their interactions are quite good, also nice seeing Izaya and Shizuo (from Durarara) working together
We've seen Inami and Yachiyo when they was young, so I'm expecting to see Poplar too in S3
Log Horizon is really good, but it mostly focuses on the whole "Where trapped into an MMO" and try to sort shit out like the economy, what really happens when you die etc. I can see why people could get bored in the first season but it's pretty good if your into that kind of stuff
It confuses me but not in the way that you'd expect. You see, there's lots of onscreen metaphors and other concepts which is fine, but what I don't get is when the main character (Araragi?) gets into fights (rare) he never... Does anything... Just gets beaten to a pulp. It's not a big enough detriment for me to put it down, it's just not what I'm used to is all.
I think I'm up to S3 now.
I liked Bake-, but Nise- was just fanservice and fetish fuel to the max. Neko- was better, but not enough for me to keep up with the series after that.
Like, I don't mind ecchi series. I feel like we were promised something different with Bake-, however. So, I just kept wanting more out of the series.
There is so little anime that has a plot, decent characters and isnt 90% fan service for autists. .hack//sign, Ghost in the Shell SAC, and battle angel alita (pushing it tbh) are the only ones I can think of. Also Dead Leaves if that counts, that movie is art.
I'm really enjoying the Koroko no Basuke series, season 3 is airing and its really fun. It's weird since i've never seen a proper basketball game or knew the rules before
I'm in the same boat. I liked the fanservice in Nise- more than I should have... But I started watching for the story and the intelligent portions, not the butts.
I'd say Ouran Highschool Host Club is a solid 9/10 SoL
Read that shit in high school and was hyped as FUCK when the anime was announced, been watching it every single wednesday. Bit disappointed with the excessive wubstep, but that's honestly my only complaint.
I hear there's more pedoservice as it goes along, and even confirmation that Arararagi has legitimate pedophilia rather than just molesting minors as a joke.
Again, it's no the fanservice itself that I have a problem with, but rather I feel it cheapens what the series could be.
>I hear there's more pedoservice as it goes along
Yes, yes it does.
>confirmation that Arararagi has legitimate pedophilia rather than just molesting minors as a joke
Yes, yes it does.
>I feel it cheapens what the series could be
Yes, yes it does.
It's lolicon m8. I'm not implying that they're different, but come on. You're larking about weebshit, and complaining about fanservice and
Seems pretty normalfag m9
Man I love this anime. The animation is almost realistic and the fight scenes are better than dragon ball Z
adult 3D to child 2D love is loli.
adult 2D to child 2D is canonical pedophilia
Your list is shit. If you wanna go the "I like teh cool anime, especially if they're old" route, at least cite some good ones like NGE. At least you didn't add the overrated shit god that's FLCL to your list.
Well, at least one item on your list is good
I completely agree. I've only watched like 4 animes with GC being one of them, and it was really hard to like. The art and music were insanely good, but the story after the first 12 episodes was terrible and the characters were abysmal aside from the one character who died.
Black Bullet was so much better.
Fuck you guys. Those are all great, except Berserk which is pretty good, but devalued by how good the manga is, but fuck. Why ya'll niggas only gotta give a fuck about anime that don't have the
>hurr lol it doesnt hav that dumb weird japan pervness so its super good
>implying the ending pissed me off
The timeskip was overall meh, the actual idea of a timeskip and they marry, I have no problem with.
Alright guys take notes.
This guys list plus
Legend of the galactic heroes

And Zetsuen Tempest.
You didn't have a face, so here you go. I'll give you this one.
>mfw when faggots won't read the original OPM or Mob Psycho
If you're getting your friend into anime (or are just getting into it yourself) and they arnt ready for Jap dubs, try Soul Eater english dub. Its pretty good as far as english dubs go, Laura Bailey does a good job .
Its also 52 episodes long so if you can push through that your pretty much set for most things
It's alright, they can wait for Murata. He's is doing an incredible job. The manga's headed into the Garou arc now.
I hope some day OPM gets an anime and they don't fuck it up.
Captain earth, infinite stratos, nisekoi, rail wars, total eclipse, aldnoah zero, terraformars, star driver, fairy tail, sword art online, log horizon, kill la kill
I know it's not an Anime, but Avatar the last airbender was pretty fucking cash
what animes do you reccomend? you dont gotta be mean bro, this whole thread is about opinions so list some shows you think are god tier instead of insulting other people opinions
If Airbender was actually anime, it would be the best shounen ever created. Sad but true.
Unfortunately the Elevens can't ever seem to make shounen anime without fucking it up eventually. (such as how they fucked up Korra S1, for example)
In no particular order
>Kuruko no Basuke
>No Game No Life
10 listed because screw you
I felt obligated to watch Korra because I loved the universe so much. But it was getting too futuristic and mecha for my liking. There were some good moments though.
all I need right here
>Grow up in Japan
>move to Cali at 9
>try to watch every single good-epic anime for 20 years..
My favorites list:
Ninja Scroll, Evangeloin 1-3 and end of, Fate/Stay Night/unlimited blade works, Kara No Kyokai, Elfen Lied, Gurren Laggan, Akira, CowBoy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Guilty Crown, Baccano, Durarara, Berserk, Death Note, Kill La Kill, Darker than Black, Gungrave, the Hellsing OVAremakes, Full Metal A, anything Hayao miyakazaki or type moon or shaft studio's, Welcome to the NHK and FLCL., Michiko to Hatchin, Fist of the North Star, Golden Boy, JoJo's Bizarre adventure, Higurashi When They Cry or Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, clannad
It got better as it went along. The final two seasons were almost Airbender-tier. It was really only the first season that dropped the ball, then the second season had to spend half its time just reiterating and fixing everything.
Correction, One Piece is the best shounen manga.
Toei Animation can eat a dick.
The only anime anybody should watch. Fist Of The Motherfucking North Star.
Second season had the First Avatar Wan sidestory, which is probably the best part of the entire series.
The final season gets points for General Zelda, Bolin finally proving himself, suitably high stakes, and ending with best ship. Loses points for shitty 3D and not having the balls to do anything with best ship before the end.
/a/ is full of anime snobs that just argue about waifu's all day
All is forgiven. And I'm sorry for calling your waifu shit. She's probably a very nice lady
I got this in the mail the other day and put it on and went to a rave party.
I got like 20 compliments.
I prefer it to you fags who can only like toonami stuff. Like damn nigga, they had some pretty good stuff, but fuck off faggots. I like this medium, and all it's shit, fanservice and tropes.
Nothing happened in any of the seasons except season 3. I was waiting for some godlike boss buildup and an end to some huge conflict like in airbender. They spend the whole time trying to beef up the avatar and ended up with an awesome as fuck ending where as korra was just meh.
.hack is a FUCKING amazing series. People may shit talk the novels or shows or even the games for being so dragged out and grindy - fuck these peasants. They suck down SAO like the god damn LOTR fanbase. Log Horizon is infinitely better than SAO indefinitely. But one thing I will speak, and that is the bullshit surrounding attitudes against .hack once SAO was produced. It was made in 2002 around when FLCL kicked the shounen/kawaii/deepstorylinebro pushovers and brought the new wave - Insanity, absolute.
You have helped spawn a smile from my face. A nice, lukewarm smile. Long time, /b/, long time.
NOW, you niggers thought you fucking knew anime movies? Let's GO - shitty list kicking it off with my favorite two
>Dead Leaves (Same director/creator as FLCL)
as a newcomer to anime (ive only watched 4 so far)
so il rate them as needs be
Great Theme, decent animation if deliberately sloppy at times, virtually all the characters are enjoyable. and despite it being the most adult it felt like a true gateway to anime really to me.
>neon genesis evangelion
cult classic helped me see all the anime tropes in a better and more positive light, good story if fucked up ideas at times.
i actually liked the orignal ending, wish they brought it back in the end of eva but just reiterated on it. and had an epilogue (though thats possibly the remakes)
>Zoom the white dolphin
decent noblebright feels like a low budget cartoon but hey it was made by the 70s and was actually the film of my familys childhood as well as my own
perfect example of what hold me back. there is time and a place for lewd fanservice but all the time is not the time.
>not the time
Not that I'm saying it was good, but are you retarded? You were supposed it as a dumb zombie and tits fun action flick. Like a Michael Bay movie. You enjoy it for what it is, it being very little, but fun.
Parasyte is fucking beast so far
Death parade is pretty dope as well so far.
i loved its moments when it remembered its a b-zombie series.
but that felt too little for me in the sea of lewd and pantsu shot
the other three had much fewer moments in their series then 1-2 episodes of hsotd.
if i want to see so much fanservice i would rather have the theme be relevant to it.
if it was an anime set in anbrothel or strip joint or something, then good id expect fanservice.
thats what made me like hellsing, it chose its fanservice moments carefully
jojo, one piece, nichijou, hunter x hunter, and fist of the north star are some of my god tier pix
>like a brothel or stripclub
m8 that's just this medium. It tends to have a bunch of fanservice, relevant or not. Besides, pretty sure it counted as ecchi, which means it's probably gonna be mostly fanservice. Don't group things up like that. It's a medium, with genres within it, not a genre. Don't expect an anime made to be dumb fun with fanservice to be on the same level as one made to be a bot more serious. While I'm not saying you can't have both, expecting it is retarded.
m8 I hope you don't think it was good. It wasn't. It was dumb, fanservice, pandering, and I love it for it, because I enjoyed it for what it was, instead of pretending that because I like something it has to be good or have a deeper meaning. Besides, I'm not sure how credible they were, but I heard some loliservice got cut in the adaptation, though i haven't read the novels so I wouldn't know.
>back in da day
>dat ryoko nude scene
>boner the size of panama canal
>imprinted ryoko onto cousin due to similarities
>teased and "harassed" her about it
>that was over 10 years ago
>I like something but it isnt good.
Interesting thoughts there friend. I for one think everything i like is good since you know the basis for it being good is if I like it or not. Unless your talking about artistic quality or some shit.
true i just meant those genres were the very reason that ive only watched anime recently.
i have a friend who pretty watches all the fetish fuel animes (not hentai) you can find
another who watches all kinds though prefers Moe
(yes hes asian)
and another who loves all the shonens and action packed animes(yes he loves naruto, funnynthing is hes the most normalfag of them all)
Everything is good in it's own right, in some way. I can enjoy a most things, long as I'm in the right mindset. But people always overestimate things they like. Is Bebop great? Yes. Is it the best thing ever? No, it was overall good, with some exceptional episodes that stood out and brought up the quality since it was episodic. BUT becuase it didn't have any
stuff, normalfags and people like it, and because they like this easily watchable show, they overestimate it.
>the basis for it being good is if I like it or not
You and the rest of the idiots online.
Sometimes things are good, but they're just not your thing. I'm pretty sure Shakespeare is a good writer, but for some reason I'd rather watch a Rob Schneider film.
And, of course, you can watch, like and enjoy something, but at the same time acknowledge that it's probably not going to win any Oscars any time soon.
Shounen is pretty easy for normalfags to watch assuming they don't already have some
>ur gay animes
attitude. For example, everyone likes DBZ. Obviously not everyone, but it's well like. Relatively normalfags, and lots of black and hispanic weebs love battle shounen, especially DBZ. Anyways, I'm
faggot who watches eveything.
watch some modernized plays if you can, unless its the language barrier that puts you off.
i believe there was one production with Christopher Ecclestone (one of the docter who actors had the shortest career as a Dr who actor ever)
I'm pretty sure this is the Shakespere equivalent of watching a 4kids dub.
by that i mean the setting or timezone rather then the language and wording.
much like the filmed romeo + juliet except being a play it can actually get away with keeping ye Olde English
I'd prefer it like this:
Anime I've watched and ratings:
Dragon Ball: 9/10
Dragon Ball Z: 8.2/10
Death Note: 8.6/10 (would be higher but second half sucked dick)
Code Geass: 9.3/10 (Slight flaws but solid)
Samurai Champloo: 9.5/10
Cowboy Bebop: 9.4/10
Kaze No Stigma: 7.3 (Meh but I liked Kasuma as a character)
Stein's Gate: 9.2/10 (Good, takes a bit to get started)
Sword Art Online: This one is a bit hard to give a rating on. The first 14 were pretty good, a bit faggy at points, but good. After that it went to shit though. So I guess like a 6.5?
too many... and you put some pieces of shit with good anime.
I'll separate the shit
Shingeki No Kyojin
Sword Art Online First 12 episodes
Ao no Exorcist
Mobile Suit Gundam 00 (this shit doesn't deserve to be called gundam yes I'm hardcore gundam UC fan)
Ao no Exorcist
Panty and Stocking
For me basically every single shounen is shit tier
I don't know why it's so rare for Japanese to actually understand humor. They literally consider irony to be a foreign concept.
is gintama actually worth watching
Eh.............................. Sure. It's probably the best straight up Japanese comedy you'll see. Everything else is just sitcom, absurdity or manzai.
I recommend Cromartie High dubbed.
Alright, will start watching it tomorrow.
I can forgive dragonball because is old as fuck (not Z)...
Bleach is a piece of shit generic shounen
Sword art online is a piece of shit that wants to make you care about the dead of undeveloped characters, undeveloped romance, undeveloped main character made especially for losers that think they are edgy as fuck, seriously the fucker has like 6 personalities depending on how the writer wants things to happen... no seriously this fucking show has to many sins
Anime fucking sucks – ALL OF IT.
It’s drawn like shit – stupid big eyes, stupid little noses and mouths.
Why the fuck do the backgrounds always go flying past while they’re just standing still? Why do their mouths and eyes always twitch? The fuck is that?
The lip syncing is shit – even if they were speaking Japanese it would be shit lip syncing because their mouths are drawn with two positions, open or closed. Mouths are much more complex than that.
All the story lines are shit – ALL OF THEM
>INB4 some dumb weaboos say, “no, you need to see blah blah blah, it’s good!”
No, no it’s not.
Weaboos are fucking forever alone virgin faggots.
Welcome to the NHK
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
C: Money of Soul and Possibility Control
Dusk Maiden of Amnesia
SAO was ass
AOT is meh
Deadman I genuinely enjoyed but that's just me. It would help if they would finish the damn thing but they never will. Guess I have to settle for the crappy mangos
Yosuga no Sora. Twincest. It was adapted from a VN, so considering the omnibus format they did, it was pretty good all things considered. Though the source was better of course. Anyways, the only anime with a little sister win are Koi Kaze, YnS which is twins, but fuck you it counts and was adapted from a VN, and Oreimo adapted from the LN, where the author wasn't allowed to go all out so had to do a lot of implying for the end. Not sure if Koi Kaze wa adapted from anything though.
Not much point in recommending things that people here are never going to watch, is there?
The last one depends. If you do it properly, you can get to point of no fucks given. Not the bad kind, where you're shit, but where you don't give a fuck and you're happy with your weebshit. The little girl part is likely, but unnecessary. You can substitute it with wanting to be the GARest.
