making a list of the must-watch classics of anime. think, if anime appreciation was a course you could take in uni, what would be on its curriculum?
(note: this is different from anime history which would have to include quite a few shows that i definitely wouldn't put on this list - Dragonball, Naruto, Astro Boy, etc.)

so far, i've decided on Cowboy Bebop, Neon Genesis Evangelion, FLCL, and either Castle in the Sky, Nausicca, or Princess Mononoke.

a few that i'm on the fence about include Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, .hack//Sign, and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Actual curriculum of a T20 undergrad anime appreciation course:

technically, it's a bit narrower than mere recommendations. i'd say OP's in a bit of a gray area here.

Im the only fucker who actually recomend shit here.
If you think this is shit you should instead make something constructive and post your own shit faggot
>>
>>100944088
That's an awful list. A couple of them are classics, but most of them are nowhere near that level.
>>
>>100944720
You're a faggot spoonfeeding in a rec thread. Please kill yourself.
>>
>>100944723
I said im new to anime and thats a list i make with the shit i want to download and watch. I put shit like Midori no Hibi because i feel like watching that, its pretty random i know.
>>
>>100944845
If have watched less than 200 anime then work on your backlog, lurk more, and don't post until you are more familiar with the medium.

This fucking course

>>100944921
dont need to be an asshole about it
>>
>>100944563
that's more like it. though i disagree with a couple of those. Death Note in particular had a tripped over itself about halfway through which makes it difficult for me to rec in any more than a casual context.
>>
>>100945085
he kinda does have a point though...

also, asking people on image boards to not be assholes about things is like asking fish to get out of the water.

Adult swim baby.

Honestly, I think /a/ would be a lot better if everyone had to watch Boku no Pico before posting along with the classics. Sure, I could be posting this because it's a HILARIOUS IN-JOKE, and I kind of am, but I also think everyone should watch Garzey's Wing, Mars of Destruction, MoMH, etc. Before you specialize, you must have minimal exposure to the whole range.

>>100945350
Nobody recommends Boku no Pico because it's bad. We love BnP, actually.
