Hiya /a/. I am a newfag as far as anime goes but do to recent unemployment, I have decided to devote some of my near infinite free time to an anime. Pic related is pretty much the only anime I have seen.
Tldr; recommmend me a good entry level anime
Also I already know what boku no pico is, so you dont need to try and convince me to watch it.
>>
I dunno OP, I REALLY think you should give Boku no Pico another shot, it seems right up your alley.
>>
Requests belong in /r/.
>>
>>101243472
Action:
Gurren Lagann
Baccano!
If you've only seen the original series, watch FMA: Brotherhood
Kill la Kill
Attack on Titan
Death Note
Puella Magi Madoka Magica

If you want to watch some good anime that isn't actiony like FMA:
Spice & Wolf
Watamote
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

/a/ doesn't take well to requests for recommendations and it's full of assholes, but please stick around. First-timers to anime are rare and this is a once in a lifetime chance to chronicle going down the rabbithole. Talk to us about your experiences as you start watching anime.
>>
>>101243719
Don't watch these, OP. This is a troll list.
>>
Fuck off.

>>101243472
>>101243719
I'm 99% sure this is the same person. They make this shitty thread to get /a/ angry, then provide recs to make /a/ even more angry.

Just stop.
>>
>>101243923
This anon has the right idea.
What kind of stuff do you like OP?
>>
>>101243856

Whaa whaa I want to be a super sekret club and shut out any possibility of new additions.

>>101243988
The only one that could be a troll is Baccano!, seeing as it's confusing as shit due to being told non-linearly
>>
>>101243923
>>101244056

Nope. Both of you need to leave.
>>
>>101244113
>and shut out any possibility of new additions.
Why would we not want to shut out any new additions like you? Look how cancerous you are.
>>
>>101244051

It's better then posting pics of your waifu going "Why is she so perfect" when the thread clearly belongs on /c/. So until mods crack down on that you can fuck off. At least I want to be welcoming.

Not really sure, as I have said I only have seen FMA and bits of other stuff that adult swim used to air. I remember watching one called blood+ i think but I am open to anything. Also this is my 2nd post in this thread so the guy accusing of samefagging was wrong.
If this thread really doesnt belong here I can delete it. I just prefer asking actual opinions from picking a random anime from some list on a wiki.

No you can't. Just stop posting and leave. Here's a helpful guide.

>>101244205
You're assuming I post in garbage threads like this. You being welcoming further attracts the garbage you complain about.

Kill yourself.
>>
>>101244205

I'd rather have waifufags than cancerous garbage like you which attract more cancer.

The image is only applicable if the people who own the apple tree are 10 feet tall and could just grab an apple and give it to the guy with no effort.

/r/anime tends to be welcoming to newcomers, and I'd love to read a writeup of your first impressions of whatever you choose to watch.
>>
>>101244266
You should watch Boku no Pico.
>>
>>101244395
Do you not see the ladder in the third panel?
>>
>>101244395

Except that's retarded. It doesn't matter how tall the people who own the apple tree are, the equipment is still there, available for the other person to use, if he so chooses to grab an apple. Does he expect the people who own the apple tree to constantly look after him and feed him every time he wants an apple? Is that reasonable?
>>
>>101244205
Waifu thread are shit, but not as shitty or cancerous as you.

Get out you disgusting cis scum.

>>101244395
Protip: the ladder represents google.

>>101244412

Then go fuck off to /r/anime along with him.
>>
>>101244266

Puella Magi Madoka Magica is good if you want the same kind of horror FMA had.

Gurren Lagann is a must-watch anyway, so you might as well watch it now. Lots of testosterone and explosions, but even if that isn't normally your thing you would still want to see it.

Attack on Titan is the most recent big action series, it only ended a little while ago.
>>
>>101244205
My god. Have you EVER lurked?
>>
>>101244499

In that case, hide the thread and move on. Getting mad doesn't create anything of value nor does it make these threads any rarer. I doubt a newfag knows or cares about your attitude towards them, but getting butthurt makes troll threads more likely.
>>
Ok so I have decided to watch kill la kill based on the one actual recommendation I got. Sorry for interrupting your... Whatever you do here, you can let the thread die now.
>>
>>101244395
>I can easily grab some apples but meh
>better lets bother these people who doesn't own me anything!

Sure son.
>>
>>101244651

I wouldn't watch Kill la Kill before seeing Gurren Lagann first. They were made by the same people and watching Gurren Lagann first will clue you in to the general attitude.

Fuck off, if you don't do shit to tell these fuckers to fuck off, then you're part of the cancer.
>>
>>101244266
Honestly, you would enjoy reddit. Just go to /r/anime. I'm not even trolling; it is literally perfect for someone new to anime.

This is as much as I will spoonfeed you.
>>
>>101244645

>In that case, hide the thread and move on.

Wouldn't be a problem if faggots like you weren't here out to help them. If no one says anything then it'd just be your posts helping out the OP, and then he'll think it's okay to make more threads like this. Then it continues, more and more come, and they get comfortable here. By that time we're full of retards like you.

Not telling people to fuck off is like not voting. It's unmerican. So fuck you.

You could've done without this, though.

>>101244788

I honesty don't know why people try so hard to post on here when there are so many more helpful alternatives available, even while they already know that /a/ is a shitty place for recommendations. Why are they so retarded?

Do you think this shit is as easy as you think? thanks to you little piece of shit know we have to deal with shitposters who where attracted thanks to you faggot.

Op here, you guys throwing a shitfit over this make it seem like I asked you to suck my dick or something. I assure you, I did not mean to shit up your awesome board, and if my one thread that you willingly chose to enter and reply to somehow offended you, I'm sorry.

Fuck off, idiot. You are adding nothing to this board. This type of thread being acceptable will turn /a/ into "/a/ - recommendation and anime reviews". Just fuck off. You come here to discuss anime and manga, not to ask us for recommendations are what we think of a certain anime so you can choose whether to watch it or not.

There are other websites on the internet designed for that exact thing; /a/ even has it's own fucking wiki which you can easily find with Google.


Kill yourself, newfag.

I admit I should have checked the wiki, but how does stirring up shit in this thread help? You guys seriously act like I fucking killed your parents or something. I know that being edgy is cool but it doesnt make sense for you to create a shitstorm and then blame me for degrading your board.
Again, I am sorry for making this thread, I will make sure to never ask the anime board about anime again.

Here I'll tell you what a rec thread is like:

>OP here pls tell me what should I watch because I can't use google.
>inb4 BnP

>Try boku no pico

LOL why sooo mad /a/? I just asked for some epic anime for me to watch
>implying rec thread are worst than waifu threads
>you gays r no better than /r/anime

etc etc, this kind of threads always attracts shitposters and newfags, I we have to fucking deal with them so they don't spill the rest of this fucking board and make it more cancerous.
>>
>>101245185

>Again, I am sorry for making this thread

Why the fuck are you still here? You've already been helped, given PLENTY of alternative websites which would be much more suited to you and your tastes. Just fuck off, never come back, and tell your friends to do the same.
>>
>>101245185

Because this happens

Sure, let's discuss recs and have a good thread!

Welp I will take your advice and fuck off now. Sorry for apparently being the cancer that is killing /a/.

Also, would definitely recommend Little Witch Academia. Made by the same people but with a different vibe (and also better than Kill la Kill imo). Plus it's only a half-hour special, not a full series, so it's easy to get through.

Holy shit. I never saw that. I remember a mod in a recent rec thread telling people not to spoonfeed, but he also said that "we can't make it a rule not to spoonfeed."

I thought Kino mod was gone, though. That's amazing to see.
