Sup /a/?

Trying to keep a long post short:

Need some short anime series for a marathon, 30 episodes or less, that has some pretty good action but isn't totally retarded. I'm not picky, but my friends would hate something like Azumanga Daioh and prefer something like Naruto (which I hate) or Bleach (which I got tired of).

Already being considered:

Hellsing
Trigun
Cowboy Bebop
FLCL
Gurren Lagann

Elfen Lied is already ruled out so it doesn't need to be suggested, but it's also an anime we like.
>>
All of them, except Hellsing OVA instead of series.

Welcome to N.H.K is a great animu

Godannar, if you like tits and robots.

Noein is 24 episodes. Very nice action, great art-style, and LOLSCIENCE to keep you entertained.

Personally, I love the style. You'll see what I mean when/if you watch the first episode.

FUCK YOU. WATCH LEGEND OF GALACTIC HEROES, NEWFAG.

I thought the art style was a bit dull, but i guess it's nice to watch.

There are less than 5 episodes with true action (i.e., something that last more than 30 seconds).

Oh, fuck yeah. I was actually trying to think of that earlier.

As a marathon? I'm not fucking suicidal.

Hellsing is shit, haven't seen GL, the rest is nice. Might also consider Samurai Champloo.
>>
>>10195198
>>FLCL

Since your friends are retarded (obviously), don't make them watch it. They would RAGE.
>>
>>10195393
Why would they rage at a 6 episodes of lol so random XD?
>>
>>10195393
They've already seen it, and it'll only take up three hours to watch.

I think they just like the sexual innuendo and robots.
>>
only cowboy bebop

the rest re crap for starters

also sage for GL pic
>>
>>10195398

Watch 28 episodes a day.

>>10195303
'hey Yuu, what are you doing? Ai loves Yuu.'

I'm seconding Noein. Awesome series.

wat
>>
>>10195312
take Tsubasa Chronicle off the list, he might try to watch the fucking awesome OVAs
>>
>>10195441
I might seriously consider your criticism of the anime on my list if you weren't implying that the only anime on Earth worth watching is Cowboy Bebop. If you had suggested a few alternative series I might have taken you seriously.
>>
>>10195480
They like tits. I like understanding the allusions in Nana's Everday Life. Also cuteness.
>>
>>10195517
but seriously, watch cowboy bebop.

Trigun's pretty weak, though I guess the main draw is to watch Vash be ridiculous. GL's a good super robot homage, but do you like super robot anime? FLCL is also a watch now show, but only 6 episodes, you can finish it in like an hour and a half, so watch something else too.

If you watch Excel Saga, you can add Puni Puni Poemi to the list (sort of ep 27 and ep 28 of Excel Saga). It's only 1 hours length.
>>

Nice try.

GunSword
At first it looks like a mesh of Trigun, Big O and Cowboy Bebop. By episode 5, the show sets itself apart with the hero more opting to go the way of "The man with no name". The secondary characters who could have easily been cardboard cut-outs are rather fleshed out leading up to some fantastic resolutions at the end.

GunXSword is a parody.

By the way, it's from the director of PlanetES.
