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.

- Mushishi
- Dennou Coil
- Natsume Yuujinchou
- Nodame Cantabile
- Sakamichi no Apollon/Kids on the Slope
- K-ON!
- Ouran
- Saint Young Men

and then on the opposite extreme, really good action!!!

- Gurren Lagann
- Outlaw Star
- Sengoku Basara
- Evangelion
- Escaflowne
- Towards the Terra
- Eden of the East

not really into magical girls, minus the powerhouse trifecta of the 90's Razz (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.

ZOMG! If you're into much older shows, I can recommend lots!

- Dog of Flanders
- A Little Princess Sara
- Alps Stories: My Annette
- Alps no Shoujo Heidi
- Ristorante Paradiso
- Ie Naki Ko Remi (both 1977 and 1997 versions)
- Bokurano
- Figure 17: Tsubasa and Hikaru
- Futatsu no Spica
- Hitohira
- Isshukan Friends
- The Tale of Princess Kaguya
- When Marnie Was There
- Les Miserables: Shoujo Cosette
- Tamako Market
- Tsuritama
- Windaria

Some of these are really old, from the 70s-80s-80s old, but they're very very good, while others are relatively new. Feel free to check them out if you want! And you're an Escaflowne fan, too?! Awesome! Who's your favorite? Mine's Dilandau, no contest!

HAHAHA the shows on the list tend to be older just because of the time frame of when i was actively into anime or still trying to reignite the interest. i liked kill la kill okay! and sakamichi no apollon is only a year or so old. i'm not sure i'll like 70's or 80's stuff much, but i'll still give them a look! c:

ohhhh for me it's Folken. dang son.

For me, the time it came out doesn't matter. If it has a good story, good characters, and keeps me interested, then the dated art, music, and other things don't matter to me.
