Topic: Anime Recommendations
My favorite resource, The Shana Project: http://www.shanaproject.com/season/Fall … ?sort=date
The Shana Project is a listing of current and past shows. As new episodes air, it updates. With an account, you can create a list of your favorite shows and they will update as new episodes become available. The show pages include torrent links and several information links. You can also review previous seasons.
Recent shows (all complete seasons for binge-watching):
Samurai Flamenco. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samurai_Flamenco
A young male model is inspired to become a costumed hero. The second series reboots itself and explodes off the rails in a completely different genre with the same character (and it is still entertaining).
Outbreak Company. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outbreak_Company#Anime
An otaku is selected by the Japanese government to carry otaku culture to a parallel world which features elves, dwarves, cat-girls, etc. The central concept is well developed.
Literally, 'stray god'. Yato is the low man on the totem pole in the spirit community. Part hobo, part lazy teen, he's a former war god who now lacks even a shrine. The intro to the story is a girl who has one foot in the spirit world.
No Game No Life. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Game_No_Life#Anime
A fantastically weird show about a pair of shut-in teen gamers who are transported to a fantasy world where every conflict is resolved via games. Refreshingly weird.
Sword Art Online. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sword_Art_Online#Anime
Without Spoilers: The show deals with issues surrounding the first full-immersion video gaming in the future. While the writing has a few hamfisted or sloppy moments, the series has a lot to offer. The second part of the first series is the fallout from the first half. A second series with new stories is currently airing.
Psycho Pass. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psycho-Pass
Follows a law-enforcement group in a dystopian future where a computer makes all major life decisions. People with abnormal emotional states are either detained for 'therapy' or executed on the spot. The second series starts a new storyline.
Fishing. And aliens. Not much action but great characters. Hugely fun and mellow. Also, Enoshima is a real island. "Enoshima bowl!"
Black Bullet. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Bullet
Post-apocalypstic Japan with monsters. Yes, it has lots in common with other anime. What it excels at, however, is raising the stakes. This show does more by episode 3 than most shows do in their entire run.
Private detectives with powers. There's lots of characters, lots of action, and mysteries to be solved. I love the season 1 cliffhanger. The series concludes with a second series: Re_Hamatora.
MekakuCity Actors. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kagerou_Project#Anime
A difficult show to summarize. The first 3 or 4 episodes all circle the same event with different character viewpoints for each. This focus on character makes for some very emotional stories.
Attack on Titan. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attack_on_Titan
Giants attacking the last human city. The pacing is a bit awkward but the horror is strong. There also seems to be a many-layered mystery that the manga has yet to reveal.
Please list some shows you have enjoyed.
