Hey all,

I havnt set up my anime list yet, but I have been watching anime for years now and I'm looking for a new one to sate my hunger.

What I am looking for is an Anime which has characters pursuing a goal or striving towards something. Previous animes which I have enjoyed like this are FMA, Eureka7, Code Geass, Gurren Lagann, Macross Frontier, Soul Eater, etc..

All of those shows obviously run quite long with 26-52 episodes or multiple seasons, I am hoping you all can recommend me another long-ish one which has excellent character development.

The art style isnt too important, but I would prefer something from the last 5 years or so.

Any help is appreciated, thank you.

Not sure if you have seen it yet, but the best (aka. My Favourite) Adventure anime I have seen so far is "Spice and Wolf" - 2 Seasons (12-13episodes each) and about 3years old. It's a very verbal/story heavy anime with good character development.
Will you be able to do.... what must be done?

No I havent, Always got the impression that it was geared towards the yougner audience more than late teens.

I really can't do much without a list to work from. Please feel free to go to my list and take a look at my 10's, 9's, and 8's. I found them all extremely enjoyable. 7's are good, just nothing too special to me.

definitely watch one piece it may seem like its for kids but it is not. there is a reason why its so highly ranked on here both anime and manga. you must watch it trust me you wont regret it. the first 226 episode are really good however starting at ep 227 the water 7 arc it becomes truly amazing and the last arc that just finished omg holy crap it was by far one of the best things ive ever seen.
one piece has real depth characters have pasts that drive them forward they face real desperation. the villains some cheesy like buggy but most are not. also the straw hat crew arnt dogooders they wont go out of there way to help people witch i like they realize hey were bad guys.
also there is so much to the one piece world out side of the straw hat crew goal of finding the one piece. there are so many mystery's that im not sure where this is going
So I don't have a signature and well its sad but I don't have the skill to make one myself and need help.
If you can help hit me up
