I feel like Little Witch Academia exists specifically to make people happy. It is the best, I've decided.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

I'm looking for a recommendation. It's been awhile since I've been pleasantly surprised by an Anime. I feel like I've seen most truly good Animes already but I know that's not true. It can be any anime with an interesting story, I'm not a fan of clichés. The last anime I finished was My Hero Academia and it felt really stale and unoriginal to me.

Here are some of the anime series I can currently come up with that did stood out for me:

Hunter X Hunter
Monster
Death Note
Steins;gate
Full Metal Alchemist
Attack on Titan
Fate/Zero
Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works
Clannad: After Story
Nichijou
Code Geass
Rurouni Kenshin: Tsjuiokuhen
One Punch Man
Tiger and Bunny
Kill la Kill
Another
Toradora!
Your Lie in April

I really appreciate all effort put in suggestions, but I'm not easily pleased haha

@Sir_Anthony Ah, an easy recommendation for you: Seven Deadly Sins. That should fit in with what your list, especially if you're a fan of the likes of Hunter X Hunter.

I'm looking for recommendations too. Currently watching Gurren Lagann, which I'm enjoying despite myself. Generally can't stand mecha stuff, but the story, characters and humour are just about endearing enough to get me through. Apart from Nia. Her "little girl lost" voice sets my teeth on edge.

@Sir_Anthony @Krull Made in Abyss
Thank me when you're done watching it.

And I'll second Seven Deadly Sins, but be aware that the transition to the second season (which is airing in January) is likely gonna be incredibly...janky. The series is good, but some really dumb changes from the source material hold it back a bit. I'm usually not the type to mind something to deviate a little from whatever it's based on but in this case it just lessens a few characters and the ending they created straight-up does not make sense with how the story is gonna continue.

What a beautiful signature.

@Sir_Anthony Silver Spoon is from the same writer as Fullmetal Alchemist, and I really enjoyed it. It's set on an agricultural school, which is obviously a large departure from the fantasy world of FA, but if you look closely you can still see the fingerprints of the author in it. The first episode didn't absolutely blow me away, but I found it to be a really engaging and refreshing world to get acquainted with. It's a humbler setting, but the characteristic mix of charm peppered with angst is still there.

I've also been rewatching Ping Pong: The Animation, which is partly standard sports anime fare, but with enough doglegs in the story and quirk in the characters to make it interesting. It's also got an endearingly wonky animation style which I just quite like looking at.

And then more in line with the full-on action shows you've listed might be Bungō Stray Dogs, which I think has some interesting flourishes (mixed in with some more derivative derivative elements, and a less the subtle depiction of the protagonist's complexes - I still like it though).

I'm not sure how many of them will hit the mark, but I hope it's some help at least.

@Krull @Maxz @Tsurii Thanks for the suggestions! I'll try each one of them. I'm going to start with Made in Abyss that one really appeals to me. Made in Abyss was actually the first anime I planned to watch when I was getting back into anime but I somehow forgot all about it? lol

@Tsurii Cheers! I will look for Made in Abyss. I'd heard of it, but know nothing of it. Might be time to invest in a subscription service somewhere - I've almost rinsed UK Netflix.

Pani Poni Dash is a weird comedy anime I watched once. It had a child teacher for some reason.

This is the extent of what I remember about Pani Poni Dash. Oh and that the Opening song is really good.

Trying to keep up with Toonami, but HunterXHunter is really the only thing I've been able to catch every week. Also try to watch Jojo & Iron Blooded Orphans when I can.

Haven't watched any on Netflix in awhile either (KuroMukuro was the last thing I watched there), due to a variety of reasons (I've been working longer hours, got a Switch, and it's been spotty getting it to work when I do want to watch it...).

I've watched season 1 of Made in Abyss. Here's my overall impression of this series so far, regarding later scenes especially:

Happy New Years everyone, I always feel obliged to stop by here at least once a year (sorry lol, wish I could be a more consistent person lol)

I've been on a somewhat "retro-anime" binge as of late - currently watching Rose of Versailles and Urusei Yatsura, and I have plans to go back for further 70's and 80's shows next. I also was watching Zeta Gundam a while back, which really is a great show too. Honestly, I think some of my strongest interest in anime has become quite meta - like, I still adore watching anime for all the same reasons (ideas, character design, animation, characters and stories, directing, writing, dumb fun, etc) but I also have taken a lot of interest in trying to place anime I'm watching into the broader real-world picture. After all, no anime was ever made in a vacuum - they came out of a specific time and place, and what led to their creation and influences, and their subsequent influences on the industry and fanbase (Which are related but different categories - the history of anime fandom is not the same at all as the history of anime, but of course they are intimately related) going forward. It's all pretty cool.

Also I still want a Switch...trying to make a small living while at college and budgeting is not fun lol. Being an 'adult' is a weird existence. Come this Spring I'll have been a semi-constant anime fan for five years, beginning with when I began to take a big part on this very thread & watched Fullmetal Alchemist way back at the tail end of my freshman year of high school. Perspective is weird.

There was this one anime I watched recently that really bugged me, I won't name it because of spoiler reasons, but arceusdamn it, you set up a sort of love triangle between 3 characters and at the very end she ends up with a character who had maybe like 4-5 lines of dialogue and grows up to be the most generic looking person ever that when I first saw them I thought he was just a background filler character...

I finally watched Your Name. I'm glad this actually lived up to the hype.

Looks like Kyokai no Rinne has finally finished it's run with 398(?) chapters. Not sure if I'll ever get to finish it myself, though, as whatever fan group(s) were translating it stopped somewhere last year (or even 2016, it's been awhile) in the 210's.

Looking forward to whatever Takahashi's next work is, though. I'd actually like to see her retire from long running series, and focus on shorter length mini-series (maybe even returning to Ranma and/or InuYasha, for a short little "what are they up to X years later" kinda deal).

@RR529

Have you ever seen Urusei Yatsura? That was one of Takahashi's earliest works and the only one I've really tried to get into, and so far I really love it.
