General Anime Recs

This is for anyone who is interested in trying out some anime titles :)

Top Two Favorites
  • Fullmetal Alchemist: Action | Family | Adventure | Humor | Drama - go from anime to manga so you can enjoy both :) [ uploaded it here  - just join the comm! ]

  • Kare Kano (His and Her Circumstances): School | Slice of Life | Romance | Humor - one of the best school!animes around, good character development, super funny and favorite romantic couple EVER! [ uploaded it here ]
Other Favorites (listed alphabetically)
  • Beck: Music | Slice of Life - a complete surprise!favorite and one of my most rewatched shows. The development of a band and so much more :)

  • Oofuri (Big Windup): Sports | Slashy - sports with lots of sortof!slash moments :) The main character is not your typical protagonist (a bit of a scaredycat haha) but somehow that became a positive rather than a negative for me as I watched it ^^

  • Gakuen Alice: - Humor | Cracky | School - light and fun, the main character is a foil for the other characters who are AWESOME and hillarious

  • Mushi-shi: Supernatural | Life - the art turned me off initially but it's brilliant - the stories form a tapestry of life *_*

  • Natsume Yuujinchou: Supernatural | Slice of Life - you can watch this with slash goggles :) [ uploaded it here ]

  • Nodame Cantabile & Nodame Cantabille - Paris :  Music | Humor | Cracky | Romance | Slice of Life - my second favorite romantic couple! It also made me develop a new apreciation for classical music. The japanese drama version is also worth watching for the incredible crackiness :)
This is 'cause I just updated my completed anime list and thought it might be good to have this around as a pointer. There's something for everyone out there and it just depends on what genre and style of anime clicks for you.

You can download from anime_downloads or galanime or watch them streaming from various sites (just google them)
YOU'VE WATCHED BECK? Have you read the manga? Because it's really, totally awesome. It's one of my Top 5 favorites, actually. That and I'm completely in love with Chiba. XD
This is the sad thing about anime - its like Stargate SG-1 where I watch shows so many times and then sometimes the mangas too (like with Beck) and I LOVE THEM TO PIECES but I never actually mention them on LJ usually XD

Oh and I think Beck and the first things I hear in my head is "Sakuuuu" + sniffing (LOLOL) and the opening lines to Moon on the Water :)

Yeah, I get that. I've been guilty of doing that a few times as well. XD

Aww! :3

I had, once upon a time, what feels like a bajillion songs from the soundtracks and some that were ripped from the anime but I don't know what happened to them.
Hahaha, yes XD I'm trying to make note of it nowadays but *shrugs*

Usually, whenever I wanted to listen to them I just hooked up my external drive and played the eps, but then I downloaded them off gendou in the past few months :3
