I haven't watched it yet, but I know enough to say Fate/Zero should not be watched first. Watch Fate/Stay Night (2006) first, then Fate/Zero. Zero will probably ruin /Stay Night for you.

Fate/Stay Night is weird in that the original game had three 'games' in it. You played thru once and then if you did it right you unlocked an entirely new way 'path' to play thru the game and then if you did that playthrough correctly you got the third path. The first show, "Fate/Stay Night (2006)" is an adaptation of the first path (basically). Fate/Zero is based on a novel made much later that acts as a prequel to the whole thing. There's also a film adaptation of path two (not great), a 2 season tv series adaptation of path two (good), and an upcoming film trilogy of path three.

There's also Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya for the pervs, which is non-canon, which is based on a manga, has three seasons and multiple OVAs.

also also, most of Type-Moon's stuff takes place in the same world, so, Tsukihime, Kara no Kyoukai, all that stuff. (except the aforementioned kaleid liner and other non-canon spin-offs).



I now see this is a week old post I'm responding to, hope it wasn't too late!

How is it related to the original? Is it a remake?
it's a re-adaptation of the novels, meant to be more faithful to the novels? include more of the stuff they left out of the OVAs? is what I'm reading. I dunno how they'll include more than a 110 ep + sidequels and movies series but whatever. animation by Production IG so it should look good at least.

yo anybody alive.

Fudanshi koukou seikatsu is solid so far go watch it. about a highschool bruh who's totally not gay but really into BL manga. also, the eps are 4min. no complaining go go. here's a tweet about it https://twitter.com/EternalGay/status/7 ... 4126468096

also, y'all seen Space Patrol Luluco? why not, it's amazing. It's by Trigger and it references all of their other works so that's probably a stumbling block for most. Clip of one of the best bits JUSTICE IS A MIRACLE https://coub.com/view/dd6qm

I've been busy watching Nirvana in Fire, but after I finish it, I might watch an anime (I haven't decided which one yet).

two recs you'd probably dig Amanchu, this season, 2 eps so far, original manga by Amano Kozue (who did Aria) about scuba diving and from last season, I'm waiting for the last episode, Flying Witch, 12 eps, which is like Aria or Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou, got that whole Iyashikei thing going on, about a girl, 15, moves in with her relatives who live in Aomori (northern most point on mainland Honshuu) does normal chill stuff, hanging out with her cousins, walking around with her cat, but also she's a witch but she's real chill about it guy.

Oh no it wasn't a late responce at all. Haven't started anything yet.
Thanks for the info. Never realised that there was a prequel or whatever it is. I just saw that fate zero had a good rating.
Will follow your advice, but to be honest now I think I won't watch fate zero at this point. Maybe later.
I want to watch something stupid and crazy fun instead. Don't know what yet. I am watching some more Gintama now until I find something that seems interesting and stupid fun enough.

Oh nice!
I have seen One punch man and loved it!
If Kill la kill is like the first cour of TTGL then it will be great. I didn't really like the second cour.
Never heard of many of the others you posted but I will check them.
And... Freddie Mercury you say? I am intrigued!

kingink two more recs of things I've just started so don't hold me to them but for these first few episodes I'm finding them recommendable

Parasyte - the Maxim has that kind of Monster vibe to it but with space pollen slugs and a talking hand. I remember reading the manga forever ago and this is a great adaptation, bumping it into the present day but with very little evidence of rewriting. animation by Madhouse, what did One Punch Man.
Osomatsu-san, reboot of a sixties show about identical sextuplets absolutely bonkers comedy really popular in japan not very big anywhere else I don't know if it's that translatable. I guess. but still very funny.

oh and quick note about Osomatsu-san, maybe skip the air order episode 01, or just note that it's intentionally against (what will be) the typical style. it's an episode poking fun at the developments of anime in recent years and how a show from the sixties and the characters from it are antiquated and won't fit into a modern show and why would anyone bother watching it.

in fact, the blu-rays of the show dropped that first episode entirely and they took it off streaming services it basically doesn't exist anymore outside of torrents. (probably more for its blatant copyright infringement issues more than a contextual thing but whatever)

Thats 80/100 for me. Quite a bunch of awesomeness remains, it's good to know.

Sweat Punch is 5 shorts

Kigeki is good the rest weaker and weaker. 7,6,5,4,3 is how these are rated by me. Digital Juice is the 6.

I've seen all except 9. 7 of those 9 are based on TV series (there are also about 10 others based on TV series that I have seen). The other 2 are OVAs (Gyo and Dallos).

I've seen 44, list looks very good and from a proper expert critic as well. This should be a priority for adoption by iCM even if I would have preferred it to be longer.

Yo, can anyone recommend a bit more mature anime shows to me. Preferably recent-ish, as I would likely have seen older shows (20 to 15 years ago, I was big into anime).
But I still take such recommendations too, because of course I could have missed something.

More mature because I just can't stand most of the angsty high-school teen stuff anymore these days. With nearly 35 I have just outgrown the demographic.
Otherwise I don't care much about the genre, it can be comedy, fantasy, sci-fi, whatever, as long as it's good.

I think the last series I enjoyed was Samurai Champloo and that is over 10 years old. Around that time I stopped actively seeking out new stuff.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Well, Netflix is coming with an adaptation of the Blame! manga later this year. I've avoided trailers so far, but that might be worth a shot.
I've also been watching some Ajin on Netflix, but that has its fair share of teen angst (though none of the highschool stuff).

And not what you'd call mature, but if you don't mind crazy comedy Kill La Kill and Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt are definitely worth checking out. It's basically Dead Leaves-type anime in series form.

metaller, you seen Legend of the Galactic Heroes? it's not new, from the late 80s thru the 90s but it's pretty universally regarded as a top of the top of the anime heap.

(if you are interested, watch this first http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?sh ... e&aid=1307, it's a movie pilot, of sorts. and then the series. http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=584

and here's a relationship graph of the series and prequels http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=rel&aid=584 )


newer stuff, generally regarded as great include Mushishi and its sequels, sort of a period piece, based around a guy who helps people deal with shinto god and yokai problems. top notch. really any series under the mono no aware tag is recommended (except NieA Under 7? I haven't seen that).

The directed by works of Yuasa Masaaki (from Mind Game on down), all recommended.

One Punch Man isn't necessarily "mature". But it's a ridiculous and over-the-top satire of typical anime with better than movie quality animation. and it's pretty funny.

I'll echo Onderhond's crazy comedy recs (Kill La Kill is a satire on anime culture and on the japanese education system a la Battle Royale, revolving around a fashion/fascist wordplay, Panty and Stocking is almost Verhoevenian satire as the thing satirized of the perversity of anime culture. they get naked and fuck around a lot but also solve angel/demon crime cases, kind of cocaine + meth + Scooby Doo) + Space Patrol Luluco, a very brief series (13x8min). By the same company that did Kill La Kill, Trigger.
(The works of Trigger et.al. started with Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, a series about two boys, one younger, one nearing adulthood, living in a post-apocalyptic society where they've been forced underground who break thru to the surface after a giant mecha crashes thru their ceiling. the mecha is piloted by an anthropomorphized creature, a species who start out as the bad guys. the bombastic mecha fights are the immediate focus but ultimately the relationship aspect is key. the series is pretty wonderfully structured, narratively and literally, around spirals and it just keeps spiraling, especially in terms of scale... again, not exactly what you're after, but still, a notable, influential, acclaimed series from ~10 years ago).

Personal favorite of mine is Bakemonogatari and its sequels (very essential to keep watching) even if, at first glance, it doesn't seem like the thing you're after. it is about a highschooler but it's much more literary, psychological, and certainly meta, than your average series.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is an absurdist, highly stylized meta parodic comedy about a high school teacher who is "the world's most negative person". Constant wordplay and references might make this a challenging pick if you're not familiar with the language and culture (or, you don't want to read all the footnotes/endnotes/blog posts/&c. ...)


Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu is highly rated as well but I haven't seen it so I can't vouch for it personally.


I have some other recs, but I have to leave for a bit, so, maybe a response about which of those interests you and I might figure something else out.

@metaller: Do you have a list of what you've watched? You haven't checked many on iCM, so I guess you don't use iCM to keep track of what anime you watch?

I recommend starting with Mushishi, Kino's Journey, Cowboy Bebop, and The Tatami Galaxy (or are you looking for something newer?).

I generally rarely check tv shows, that's why likely most of the anime I've watched won't show up on ICM.
Some stuff mentioned here are solid recs that have been on my watchlist for quite some time.

Some of my faves, in no real order:
Evangelion, Record Of Lodoss War, Trigun, Cowboy Beebop, Rurouni Kenshin

Overall I prefer shows with short arcs that don't go on for season after season until infinity.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

This might've been mentioned already somewhere else, but there's a website recently launched from the Tokyo Museum of Modern Art with a load of vintage Japanese animation to mark its 100th anniversary:

It's been a very long wait, but finally it's here! Almost... A few days away if i am not mistaken.
It was pretty great. I don't remember where they left us though. I need to check it out.

I've actually heard that name tossed around sometimes. So it has been on my extended radar. I see it also just has one season which is a plus in my book.
I think I wouldn't be able to watch something like Dragonball anymore these days like in did in my youth. Just filler after filler and things drawn out until eternity.

I know what you mean. I love One Piece, but starting it now would be impossible. Or Naruto, or dragonball, or bleach... lol... i love my long series but i started them years ago.

I'm into the 1xx episodes in One Piece (just left Alabasta with Nico). I expect I'll lose my interest and either take a long break and watch other stuff, or skip most and watch select episodes and movies

It's a great show that can really keep your interest, but the plot is going very slowly with only 20 min episode from which only 10 minutes are usually into the story. But there are some great arcs coming so I think you will be hooked, even if you will fast forward some scenes or even whole episodes.

Steins Gate is awesome. Starts of as light hearted but it isn't until mid way till shit hits the fan.

Hasn't anyone here watched Princess Tutu? I even have to fix the IMDb episodes for it.

I don't think this is going to fall out of my anime series top 20 ever. And that's a lot considering it's a girly show.
Love Ahiru's voice. Soooo cuuuute. :wub:
The story is original, a bit repetitive during conclusions in a way though and journey-over-destination in the end.
The art is artsy.
Must see.

Just completed watching Clannad + Clannad After Story. While Clannad is merely decent, After Story holy fuck is so emotionally powerful, devastating and fulfilling. During the later half of After Story I found myself bawling even at little things. Its a simplistic story but what an experience it is. A mixture of joy and sadness bundled together. What a riveting roller coaster of varying emotions!

Anyone here with the Project Itoh trio of films?

The Empire of Corpses was okay but somewhat of a letdown, Harmony is way better (Studio 4°C / Michael Arias / Takashi Nakamura) and I'm looking for Genocidal Organ right now. Hadn't heard from Itoh before, but it's clear he'll be missed. Anime has been in dire need of conceptually interesting films like these.
