Okay, so I haven't been actively interested in anime in almost 10 years, but that doesn't mean I've cut out anime entirely (there's still some shows that I love) or that a new show can't pique my interest (but it's really hard). HOWEVER my tastes are really weird and specific???? So I'd love recommendations from anyone more in the know-how these days than me c:
mostly, I like slice-of-life with some kind of twist, usually paranormal. I've seen a TON more anime than this, these are just the...sadly short list of series that survived my disinterest, enough so that I bought the DVDs for them (if available) and still watch every once in a while.
- Dennou Coil
- Natsume Yuujinchou
- Nodame Cantabile
- Sakamichi no Apollon/Kids on the Slope
- Saint Young Men
and then on the opposite extreme, really good action!!!
- Gurren Lagann
- Outlaw Star
- Sengoku Basara
- Towards the Terra
- Eden of the East
not really into magical girls, minus the powerhouse trifecta of the 90's
(SM, CCS, Utena). don't care much for mecha except for Rahxephon.
I'm definitely interested in trying Ore Monogatari and Nozaki-kun, I've heard good things. I also love horror and gore, so I'm going to give the Bakemonogatari franchise a shot, too.
