    Anime heaven, help me out! Please? ;)

    Hey:wave:

    I need some new animes, badly. I made a thread a few months back asking, pretty much the same thing and now i'm back and i need more:thumbup:

    I been thinking about an anime I saw when I was living in Singapore and I bloody remember what it was...It was based on magic, evil, good and what I recall, a tournament with loads of different characters and it was by far the best anime i had ever seen! Any idea's what it was?:grin:

    Also, any idea's for some new gory, fighting, blood, sadistic, dark anime's I might enjoy? (Rate them out of 10 if ya can:thumbup:) I know many will say elfen lied and yes I have seen it and it's amazing!

    Also, any other people who like the same type of anime's can use this thread to look for new anime's aswell:yes:

    Thanks!

    Regards,
    BK,

    Well, I could send you another huge list of stuff, or post it here.
    As for animes that are like Elfen Lied, I'm not huge on that whole genre, as I'm more of a comedy/slice of life guy, but I have seen my fair share of action type animes.

    Black Lagoon, both the first and second seasons are key. It's a terrifice anime, and definitely one of my top ones to recommend to people who enjoy they kind of anime you do.
    Uh... Darker than Black is solid. Takes a while to really get into it in my opinion, but it's really cool.
    Ooo, Baccano is excellent. A really great anime to watch, really dark, pretty damn bloody and gory.
    The Gunslinger Girl series is actually really cool, not insane amounts of action, but the story is excellent, and it's a great anime to watch.
    I guess obligatory mention of dark/action animes like Death Note, Cowboy Bebop, uh... Ghost in the Shell.
    Oh man, David would murder me if I forgot to mention Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. Incredibly bloody, gory, and a dark anime. Both the seasons are amazing, though I do find the first season a lot more sadistic than the second one.

    Like I said, I'm not huge into the crazy action type of anime, though I do enjoy them once in a while when they're really good. When you want something along the lines of comedy, slice of life, drama and what not, I can mention a lot more stuff.

    Oh, and something else that's bloody and gory. School Days.
    :grin:

    *high fived turtle*

    Thanks man!
    I have watched some of those, such as, Death note, Amazing anime but slightly dim around mid series but got really good again :D If you like a bit of drama in your anime's try Air if you have not done so already.
    Thanks again! :D
    (Thanks for the invite!)
    If anyone else has anymore suggestions please say so :)

    Re: Anime heaven, help me out! Please? ;)

    Im very suprised to not see the following anime in anyones list :

    D.gray-man!

    Pretty lenghtly serie, not finished yet: Great quality overall. Reasonably darkish, don't expect Vampire Hunter D stuff, but still a very serious overall tone :)

    side note:

    Another great and pretty length anime, but certainly not for everyone tastes is Ginga Densetsu Eyu. Legend of the Galactic heroes. Absolutely crap graphics since it's pretty old and an unusual backround/story (space military Prussian vs Allies kind of stuff), Great serie.


    side note 2: A certain hit would be Claymore : That's moody and gory and what not :)

    Yeah, if you notice most of the anime on my list isn't that hardcore dark-type anime. Unless it's really good and people constantly bugger me to go watch it, I usually only read the synopsis on ANN and leave it at that.
    I have had several people tell me to watch D.gray-man and Claymore though.
    Not sure why, but every time someone says Claymore I think of Saber from Fate/Stay Night.

    Re: Anime heaven, help me out! Please? ;)

    Claymore = must see, though the manga is better so I'd advise to look into that, even though the anime is awesome to of course. 10/10

    Berserk, totally epic, often teamed up with claymore when reccomending animes. Manga is however way better then the anime, so go with the manga. 10/10

    Higurashi, first season is indeed better for sadism. Rena is the most awesome. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeeJxefijoY
    The story isn't in league with the above so maybe 8 or 9 overall, but some very good (/gory?) scenes. More sadistic then the above.


    I could direct you to some more mangas, finding good bloody animes is for some reason harder then mangas :cloud9:

    That's cause they can go a little overboard with the manga without having to worry aboy broadcasting standards. I mean, look at what happened to Kodomo no Jikan.

    Oh, and it's all about Hanyuu. :azn:

    I've been saying anime adaptation for High School of the Dead since I finished the first chapter for that yo. If they don't water it down for the tiny childrens to view, it would be excellent.

    I would really recommend d.gray-man. Really. It's somewhat different than the other long still running animes, not as easy to digest as one piece naruto or bleach.


    I would never recommend bleach or naruto, I do still watch em but they are kinda mweh.

    One piece gets another big heads up from me : Still a brilliant serie: Check it out if you haven't (just 360 eps and still going strong).



    edit; Just a random recommendation: Hajime no Ippo: Fightning Spirit, if you like sports anime, then check it out.

    I'm not a big fan of the long running anime series. Just something about having hundreds of episodes seems kinda boring... I did watch Dragonball though, original, Z and GT, but other than that, the longest series I've seen would be Cardcaptor Sakura and Monster, both with 70-ish episodes.

    Most of the anime I've seen are just the short series with 13-26 episodes.

    Re: Anime heaven, help me out! Please? ;)

    I have one big problem with those short series; The moment I get some feeling with the main characters is the moment the serie ends. I just can't stand that. I only watch humorous short animes now, I just can't take dark animes that are just 20-30 eps long, it just leaves me feeling dissapointed.



    Just another heads up for Full metal alchemist btw: Suits the darker anime type greatly and is like 60 eps long :thumbup:
