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
i`ll just be nice and post this.
>Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Meh, everything else is okay though.
> think, if anime appreciation was a course you could take in uni, what would be on its curriculum?
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.
clearly i'm going to the wrong college
>No hats on
Im new to anime but from what i gather this is the most recomended anime (and the one i will watch in the future)
neon genesis evangelion renewal
Ghost in the shell
Welcome to the NHK
Midori no hibi
Whisper of the hearth (dont really recomended but i will see it anyway)
5 centimeters per second
The girl who leapt throug time
Eve no jikan
If you're into moe and cute shit then add
Non non biyori
Watamote (its cute to me)
Shinryaku! Ika Musume
If you're into deep shit then Add Ergo Proxy
This are horrible recommendations, and i hope you kill yourself you piece of sjit.
Here are a few quick notes on "canon."
not for all the same reasons, but all are important in their own way.
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
That's an awful list. A couple of them are classics, but most of them are nowhere near that level.
You're a faggot spoonfeeding in a rec thread. Please kill yourself.
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.
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.
> Catching up with Shinji; or What the Hell is Shinji’s Problem?
This fucking course
dont need to be an asshole about it
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.
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.
Nobody recommends Boku no Pico because it's bad. We love BnP, actually.
