There was some talk about it earlier - I'll pitch in and say that the monogatari LN translations are actually really good. I definitely recommend them!

Monogatari is amazing but it could have a bit less fan service.

On the other hand, the opening shot of the series tells it all I guess...

After half a year of watching, I finally finished all 9 Seasons of The Office and was left with wondering what I should watch next.

Thanks to the 30 day Crunchyroll trial it was the perfect time to get back into Anime. Next thing I know I watched all Episodes of Darling in the Franxxx in a single week. Can’t really remember the last time I binged a series that fast.

As a total Anime newbie are there any similar shows on Crunchyroll? I wasn’t really into the fighting and mech parts but I guess I’m a sucker for romance. Zero Two being the best waifu probably played a big part of why I liked it so much.

Please watch "Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso" aka "Your lie in April". It is so damn good.

If you like romance animu, this season we have Fruits Basket.


Last season we have Kaguya-sama.


And the season before that we have seishun buta yarou


Kaguya-sama and Aobuta are my personal favourite. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the suggestions! Oh man I don't know where to start they all look very interesting.

I'll add them to my Queue and go from there. Oh boy Animu is going to consume my life.

I've been following Watanabe's new anime and it's captivating.


It has really good usage of music, out of his recent works. Probably the best I've heard since Bebop.


Sadly Netflix has the streaming rights so the western world will have to wait months for it.

Blu-rays for Fate/Apocrypha and Last Encore are on the way! Hope to get through those soon while I'm in a Fate/ kinda mood since I've been playing Extella LINK lately.

I know I'll like Apocrypha at least since I liked the novels. I am curious how certain parts were adapted...

============
My dad binged all of Legend of the Galactic Heroes in under a week. What the hell.
That's really funny, but at least your papa has good taste! :p

I'm just going to assume that he saw the original OVA (and not Die Neue These) which was 110 episodes in total. If so, he's a machine. It took me months to finish it.

If there's any anime that can transform into a total asshole, then my assholenites are Terror in Resonance and Ergo Proxy. I just hate these shows so much I will never miss an opportunity to say how awful they're, and it has been more than a decade since I saw EP. Some things never change, no matter how much time passes.

I liked the first few episodes of EP, but then they've started to bombard viewers with various philosophical ideas that rarely landed well and episodes that didn't add anything to the narrative or characters (tv show episode?). It's not entirely dreadful like ZnT, but it's one of the few shows that I think is a little bit on the try-hard side of things.

I remember liking Ergo Proxy when I watched it way back then.
I also remember never really understanding the story, or at least the ending.
Definitely more of a journey instead of goal thing.

All of your recommendations are region locked for me but at least I can watch them in the browser with CR-Unblocker. Kinda annoying I can't watch with the Android TV app without a VPN.

This show has been great so far! I'm really loving the classical music

Glad i binged at the right point. lol.

Glad you are enjoying it. It is one of those "feel good" + "cry a lot" shows.

They were fucking rad.

From the suicide charge and Levi destroying the monkey titan to Armin dying and Mikasa nuking Reiner inside out, it was so heavy on pay-off and fast pacing, followed up with that real somber, low-key drama afterwards. 👌

I remember when the first season aired, i thought the show was fairly mediocre compared to the hype it had. 😹

Levi is a beast and i was initially expecting him to become the titan. That would have been too OP and this is the ideal result. But really sucks that we lose Erwin. Dude was one of the coolest characters. :cry:
I really agree with the pay-off in the last two episodes; really made up for all the shit happened prior.
As soon as i watched the first episode of AOT, i knew this is something i would love.
Anyone here watching Kimetsu no Yaiba aka Demon Slayer? If not, you should. Nice art, great animation, amazing soundtrack and an above average shounen story.

It's the only show I'm watching this season. The manga is one of my favorite things running currently and the adaption is awesome.
And we haven't even reached the parts where it starts getting really good yet!

It looks so good.

I read the manga too and ye the current arc is pretty damn awesome.
I got no clue how they are gonna beat Kibutsuji and top 2 demon moons.
The anime is gonna be so good, if they keep the same quality when it comes to the more action heavy arc which is almost all arcs.

I got my Fate/Apocrypha and Fate/ Last Encore blu-rays the other day. Binged F/A already. It was great overall, really loved the action scenes too. Atalanta and Astolfo were great. Semiramis had exactly the voice I imagined for her too. I was surprised at some changes they made from the books tbh, but nothing overall that I could deem as truly negative since well, you always lose things from adaptations of books.

Next up is Last Encore. So far I'm 5 episodes in and actually, the SHAFT style is annoying me to death this time I must admit. I feel like I'm watching monogatari with a Fate skin pulled over it. :face-with-cold-sweat:

This forum is filled to the brim with good people. EP was amazing. I don't pretend I understood half the plot but the sense of journey was amazing.

I remember Texhnolyze in all its Yoshitoshi Abe fucked-up-ness. Quite a whiplash from Haibane Renmei and I can't say I loved it.

My dad binged all of Legend of the Galactic Heroes in under a week. What the hell.
Can I clone your dad or something? Asking for a friend.

The only show I'm watching right now is Kimetsu no Yaiba and it's one of the best anime I've seen in recent memory. It's not just the visuals but the sheer atmosphere. I can't quite articulate it, it's the feeling the overall works gives through the way everything from the world to the characters are portrayed and conduct themselves. It's the kind of show that makes me feel better just watching it, there's a goodness to it.

The fact that it is a manga adaptation, meaning they aren't winging the plot (wink Darling) also greatly helps. Last but not least, soundtrack-wise this is the best and most impressive show since... I don't know, Code Geass?

Yaiba is so good. And the anime hasn't even reached the parts where I actually started really getting into the manga yet! (Soon though),

High Fives

The adaptation is so good I've held back on reading the manga because I think it's the best way to experience the story for the first time. And for once it's 26 episodes, meaning a proper full-length season!

I didn't really like Fate/Last Encore at all really.

SHAFT really botched this one. Felt like they couldn't make up their mind on style/directing cuz it was just all over the place and filled with Madoka/Monogatari scenes. Nero is a great character but even she couldn't save this...

maybe someone can help me remembering a title i watched, i don't know, 94 maybe? Afair it wasn't something obscure but something known and liked back then. but if you search on google for anime, ova, astronauts,... nothing shows up obviously. only macross and gundam stuff. so does someone know what i'm talking about? more drama and grounded afair and not scifi or robots stuff.

Edit:
It was Wings of Honnêamise you nerds! Thanks for nothing!

My first time watching Eva was from English dubbed VHS back in '98. Before that my anime menu consists largely of Dragon Ball Z lmao.

Is the netflix version based on the newer blu-ray cuts? Cuz I have the blu-rays and quality wise, they're pretty dang great.

I guess if their licensed from one of the English or non-Japanese pubs, it wouldn't be. Since the BR's haven't been released outside of Japan yet to my knowledge.

Is this Rahxephon? I don't 100% remember how it ended though, so maybe I'm wrong...
Started writing the post thinking of Rahxephon, but finished with Eureka Seven in mind.
All three pale before the greatness of Space Runaway Ideon
