Is there essential /a/ recommended tryhard philosophical "deeeeep" shows? I just finished Ghost in the Shell 2nd Gig and I'm in the mood for more stuff that makes me think
Serial Experiments Lain, Paprika, stuff like that with a minimum depth of like Bebop or Eva
Master of Martial Hearts. You have to pay really close attention to the story or the end wont make any sense.
Aku no Hana
I'd recommend the dubbed version.
No need to keep recommending anything at this point, watching this will keep you in thought for weeks.
>minimum depth of Bebop or Eva
Those are two wildly different levels of DEEPness.
Paranoia Agent has the same director as paprika (and is better imo)
If you don't mind mango, check out Nijigahara Holograph.
YOU FUCKING SHITHEAD, YOU FUCKING BUMPED IT
I started with the subs, is it as good as the dub? will I miss anything with the it?
In my honest opinion I'm not a big fan of dubbed because when I see the lips out of sync it really messes with my immersion; however, just like Bebop and Baccano, the dub is just too good to watch. I'd also recommend buying the dubbed version to keep supporting both the anime and the VA studios' works.
Boogiepop Phantom, Bokurano, Alien Nine, Paranoia Agent, Shigofumi, Denpateki na Kanojo. The manga for Bokurano and Alien Nine are superior, and Alien Nine and Denpateki are short OVAs that are nice on their own but more like teasers for the manga and light novel respectively. Boogiepop's central plot is a little hard to get from the anime alone because it's based on a novel/movie series, but the episodic bits are perfectly enjoyable. It's an atmospheric/soul twin to Lain.
Fate/Zero isn't traditionally Deep but it's got a decent amount of people fighting over their ideals and philosophy.
Psycho Pass plays with dystopia, and Ghost Hound deals with more physical psychology rather than interpersonal.
Bakemonogatari probably isn't what you're looking for since it's more reading implied conversation/camera angles/body language than direct psychology, but it's a fun ride if you like looking into things.
Have fun, deepbro.
Alien Nine is deep? It didn't feel like it when I watched it.
Princess Tutu was fantastic
Definitely looking into these
Thanks for all the recs! Is Psycho Pass really worth it? I've always heard it unfavorably reviewed as a GitS ripoff
>a minimum depth of like Bebop
At what point is any part of the narrative in Bebop 'deep'?
Did we watch a completely different series?
I dunno where you read that.
they both explore futuristic societies in a different way.
There was a pretty good bit of philosophy in the serious episodes, pontificating on like the influence of the past or fate/free will issues or whatever
I don't know, I just didn't want people coming in and saying like Lucky Star or something
I haven't found any shows as straightforward with their depth as for example Lain so I was just looking for a minimum cutoff point
I wouldn't call it deep, but there's a theory that says that the whole show is about rape.
It's got more of an artsy depth, but Angel's Egg is a great watch, if only for the atmosphere.
Check out everything else by Satoshi Kon.
