I just finished this. It is the fourth anime I have ever watched after Naruto, Neon: Genesis and Attack on Titan.

I know it's widely acclaimed so I will probably get shit for posting it, but whatever. This was a beautiful anime and it really tugged at my heart until it broke, then put it back together again.

Everything was perfect, the characters were amazingly realized and all had a specific personality and something dear to them they were fighting for.

There were so many different themes, relationships, goals and so much was both lost and gained. I can't find a single valid complaint about this anime and I truly believe it is the best I have seen yet.

To those of you who have been here before... Where do I go from here? I know this is incredible but I feel like there is way more I can experience...

I hope people here will be welcoming and helpful to someone like me, who is so new to anime. I look forward to your responses. :)

Try Boku no Pico. It has a lot of deep themes and relationships as well.

Well at least you didn't post about SNK or Baruto.

Anyway, just to explain the shit you're about to get from everyone, recommendation threads make /a/ angry. And no, not joking angry. Very, very angry. They'll tell you to go out of /a/, lurk more and sometimes wish your family to die in a horrible accident.

But that's how it is. All you can do is go out, watch animu on your own and join back here once you know enough not to ask for "what's next". Blend in, newfriend.

/a/ is deathly afaraid of new people.
>>
>>101313520
Lurk more. You can never lurk enough. Don't post on /a/ without an understanding of its culture and wonder why they're being mean to you.
>>
>>101313542
>/a/ is deathly afaraid of new people.
There's a difference between afraid, and hate because they are lazy shits who can't use google or think for themselves.

sage, report, etc.
>>
I see, at least I predicted those people would show up. Should I watch 30 or 40 more anime before I am worthy in your eyes? Maybe read a couple mangas as well? It's not very nice to outcast someone before you even know who they are.

I just want suggestions, and since you seem to be so well informed couldn't you spread that knowledge? Talking to people becomes such a chore when they are so obtuse...
>>
Seriously though, did any of you did something as stupid as invite all of your facebook friends to /a/?
>>
>>101313520
Look...
/a/ is elitist.
I feel bad for OP, but... that is just the reality of it. I hope he, at the very least, realizes the people here are being jackasses and doesn't accidentally take anything to heart.
Lurking is for the benefit of new users as well, they learn how to spot shitposting and they learn (hopefully) that opinions are subjective.

Try around 200.

>>
>>101313605
yup, using a search engine to find other people's recommendations is the antithesis of lazy isn't it?

I think the real problem is you're too much of an asshole to get over yourself. If someone walked up to you and started a conversation about what anime they liked, would you spit in their face?

I won't be bullied over such a simple question as recommendations. This board is not solely for you to bask in your own 'heightened and mature' anime knowledge.

It has nothing to do with laziness, if anything, you are the one being lazy by refusing to acknowledge someone new.

Now I know you're trolling.
>>
>>101313615
You don't owe anyone here anything, there is no 'number of anime' you need to watch. Recommendation threads have overstayed their welcome so you aren't going to get a lot of serious replies if you go about it too directly.
Here is a hint: there is a list of /a/ recommended anime. It is off site and not too difficult to find. Good luck.
>>
>>101313605
I hope you're not forgetting to either.

>>101313615
/a/ doesn't want new people. It's as simple as that. if you want in, do so without telling others you just got in.

Anyway, go watch something /a/ really likes. Madoka, Bakemonogatari, or any of kyoani's show. Kyoani is a studio.

Now you can go out and stop replying. This thread is now a shitposting thread until the janitors come in.
>>
>>101313747
>If someone walked up to you and started a conversation about what anime they liked, would you spit in their face?
Fucking yes.

Can you just give me good recommendations? I'm tired of this elitist neckbeard attitude. Either give me something or I will report you for trolling. :)
>>
>>101313793
Or maybe it just makes you feel better to label me as one. I came in here with good intentions, as I have found a love for something new and I wanted to talk to people who are also interested and find out what they think.

However, it is painfully clear that the community does not always reflect the material. If I'm going to continue to be labeled as a troll and if you're going to continue to bring down this great feeling I had just now, then I guess there really is no point in posting yet.

Spongebob Squarepants - One of the more popular animes, but it is a brilliant comedy/slice of life about a sponge and his friends, despite the clear lack of plot and it being very episodic, it's worth it.

Batman Beyond - I haven't seen it myself but I've heard it's very similar to Naruto OP, give it a try

Rocket Power - Sports anime, haven't seen it in a while, kinda eh but try it for the variety

Finally you must watch Peter Pan, it is the pinnacle of anime man. My favorite anime movie of all. There's a reason it's withstood the test of time and only further proves how wacky those japanese are with their ideas.

Lurk moar before posting here.

Glad you're enjoying your new hobby, but in order to truly enjoy anime you need to find your own way, otherwise you'll end up hassling /a/ every time you finish an anime. It's not like we're sending you on a vision quest to the deser, it's as simple as googling "anime recommendations" and looking at the 3rd result.

You'll understand one day.

You still don't understand that just because there is some other opinion or list on google does not mean I have to use it.

This is a board for anime! You are an individual with your own opinion on what's good, and I wanted to hear it. I guess just redirecting someone to Google is just easier for you, and you don't see my point.

If you don't want to recommend something, why don't you just let it fall to the bottom of the thread list? Either there is someone who is willing to talk to me, or there isn't. But it has just become flooded with people calling me a troll or idiot when I'm not trying to be.

by killing recommendation threads, you discourage discussion, and often times /a/ blurs the line between the two,because for /a/, if you can kill a thread, you should. You're scared to death of anything new or different, and the board as a whole suffers from the same shortcomings as the media it obsesses over - it's stuck in rut and can't stop defeating itself for it's own sociological ends.

Stop using emoticons, get rid of the name, and generally stop posting all together. As for anime, good shounenshit is extremely hard to find.

>>101313854
You should really branch out, but put TTGL, Code Geass, and Hunter x Hunter (2011) on your list.

If you're set on shounen, you have to see Dragonball then Dragonball Kai. For completeness, more than its own merit. One Piece is the king of all shounenshit and definitely worth watching. Power through the weak start, and stop watching after Enies Lobby were the manga adaptation goes to shit.

If you're going to stick with shounen stubbornly, you'll have to move into manga eventually.

Actually this is a very entry level board, it's /b/-tier at worst.

Really it's an okay board to discuss current airing anime but only for that. It's easier to have normal discussions on /m/ (and our culture is funnier).
