    If it's stuff on Netflix you're after then Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood and Death Note are the absolute essentials.

    Fate/Zero is on there too think.

    Watch the first Full Metal Alchemist series, its amazing and tells you a lot. I also suggest Soul Eater, Hellsing, Sword Art Online, Bleach, Death Note, Blue Exorcist amongst some.

    I'd highly suggest googling the top animes and 9/10 they are what most Westerners watch so that's the best place to start.

    Attack on Titan is another awesome one, can vouch for Hellsing and Sword Art Online as well.

    All the above..! I've just finished re-watching death note and the FMA brotherhood series. So worth it.!

    Depending on your humour you might like one piece as well, early ep's can be a bit of a drag but gets better. over 500+ ep's though.

    Do check out Jojo's Bizarre Adventure if you seek the manliest anime of the year. It's best compared to Dragon Ball Z but without all of the waiting for spirit bombs and Namek to be destroyed.


    I have only seen all of FMA:Brotherhood, and can say that it has the most satisfying ending any anime could hope for. So thats why I recommend it over the original which went with an original ending.

    The manliest anime ever is Berserk. Guts is something else. With the Berserker armor, akin to Alucard from Hellsing. Absolute death.

    The movies are increasingly violent and the demon scene is one of the most violent and disturbing scenes I've watched, ever.

    I've gotta get past episode 1 of Berserk but there's just too much anime to watch

    Binging TV is fantastic and it sucks when it take all attention to everything else.

    I may just do that.

    Speaking of which, anyone thinking about watching Neon Genesis Evangelion have the very good choice of watching the films over the (troubled) series.

    The only terrible thing about the Eva films is that you dont get the very great intro song.





    Best anime advice to give anyone is: If the intro song isnt appealing then the show probably wont be too. Though there are the exceptions to the rule.


    And you'll have to check for yourself but I dont think Crunchyroll requires you to have a premium membership. I payed for it without even trying the PS4 app first I think I just get syndication immediately rather than having to wait.

    There's only movies up to the end of the first story arc ending with Casca going batshit insane. There is talk of more, but nothing concrete. Would love it to continue.

    Animes have intro songs? I generally just skip that shit.

    No spoilers!

    They doooo!

    Jojo finishes each ep with this!



    And Ergo Proxy (top 5 anime right there) finished eps with Paranoid Android.


    I'm glad this thread has taken off now

    Trust me Manny, there's nothing I could say to you that could possibly prepare yourself for the aural and visual assault that is the ending of the last movie. Enjoy the ride.

    Such a funky song!

    Samurai Champloo has excellent intro music.



    Two more suggestions, the above Samurai and Cowboy Bebop. Everyone should start there.

    Darker than Black, Btoom!, Claymore, Afro Samurai, Avatar, Code Geass - Lelouch of the Rebellion, D.Gray-Man, Deadman Wonderland, Fairy Tale, Gungrave (honestly loved Gungrave, I almost cried at one point, beautiful story), Kill La Kill, Tokyo Ghoul and Trigun are also suggestions.

    And if you want to watch something over the top from One Piece, watch the newest movie, One Piece: Film Z.

    I've got more anime than I am able to watch.

    Golden Arc I was pretty good. Not sold on the animation of it just yet though. The 3D kinda makes everything feel 2.5D.

    Great to finally see the inspiration of Dark Souls finally


    I've seen the start of Tokyo Ghoul too. Found one of my new favourite bands because of it

    The animation is very strange, but they make it work for the movies imo.

    Was Berserk the inspiration behind Dark Souls?

    Demon's Souls and Bloodborne too, but the strongest connection is with Dark Souls.


    I've now also seen part 2. It's all falling into place now! I think the anime should still be seen because I think the films are only about a young Guts.
