great thread! I always wanted to open a thread like this but thought
I was the only otaku around here
my top favorite animes are Death Note
, Tsubasa Chronicle
, Full Metal Alchemist
and Detective Conan
for sure, and in my younger days I liked Naruto
and One Piece
but now I don't have the time to follow them anymore, and here are some animes I'd like to recommend for all:
Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle
I know I already mentioned this in my top favorite ones, but I can't recommend this enough for all anime lovers, it's a magical anime with a great deep story, characters and epic, masterful OSTs by the legendary Yuki Kajiura (the song in the video above is hers and the main theme song of the anime).
this anime transcended the typical magical girl genre with a deep emotional plot, well-rounded characters and wonderful OSTs, shame the sequel (My-Otome) didn't live up to the original title.
also known as X Clamp
(Clamp is the creator behind it, famous for their other works like the one above along with RG Veda
, Chobits and xxxHolic) , really epic anime for those who like dark themes and stories, Kamui Shiro the protagonist of this series is the one in my avatar btw
for fans of the romantic comedy genre I recommend this great anime, really funny and never boring, it's actually one of the rare animes I watched more than once, too hilarious
WARNING: NOT FOR THE WEAK HEARTED!!!!
, this is a dark anime that is really brilliant if you don't mind the gore, nudity and blood, a true masterpiece of artistic psychological horror.
