Anime Recommendation
« on: February 21, 2019, 06:38:17 PM »
I have limited anime experience. I've seen Death Note, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and Avatar (if you count that).  All were good and I'm looking for more.  Ideally it wouldn't be available on Netflix.  As a side note I am not a big fan of anime that sexualizes the female characters  when they look like they are teens.

Any suggestions?

I guess I should add that I don't want to have to watch a gazillion episodes to get through the series.  A ballpark limit might be around 100.  I see that a bunch of them are we'll over 400 episodes. I have to imagine that I would be sick of the show way before I got to that point.

The two I would recommend are Neon Genesis Evangelion and Cowboy Bebop. The best 2 by far. I'm also very offput by the sexualization of kids angle of so many anime.

The three I mentioned where good.

@Lego: The two you mentioned are not available on Netflix but I will keep an eye out for them.  Prime has season 1 of Neon but that is it.

I thoroughly enjoyed Trigun some 15 years ago! Only 26 episodes.

How many episodes? It was a short run series, I think only 27-ish episodes.

Amazon Prime searching is crap.  You want to see what is included and they slip things in that cost.

Sadly I was wrong about Neon, not available in either place.  Same with Trigun

Ping Pong
Baccano
Kara no Kyoukai
Death Parade
Shirobako
One Punch Man

those should be palatable to western tastes
you can watch most shows on crunchyroll for free
