Yeah I actually started with that AniDB diagram but then...

I think I'll start with the entries that are jumping out at me most, then if I get hooked, go and start from the beginning. Thanks.

where did u get sig on ur top about section profile?

I don't know if it matters too much. I think Leiji himself somewhere at some point has even said his intention is to make most stories self contained. I do think the second GE999 movie is a direct sequel. But the series is its own thing compared to the movie. Harlock is all over the place too, almost every installment is an alternate setting with characters differing in appearance or age and nothing connects to another series, etc.

Yamato is the only one with a very direct chronological order that you'd want to follow.

Your best approach might be release date order.

I always like to throw this out because it's hilarious:

Common question, I'm sure, but: Anyone have any strong opinions on Leijiverse watch order?

I watched the GE999 1979 movie a while back and that's it so far. I was thinking of looking toward, e.g., Maetel Legend, Space Symphonic Poem Maetel, and Queen Emeraldas, next, but given the complexities here I wanted to see if there's anything I'd need before those.

That's a good start. You'd probably be able to binge watch an action packed variety like Romeo's Blue Skies if you wanted to. I've been watching them for a long time, so the choice is always made for me now. Whichever gets finished next heh.

Nippon Animation is still around in a small capacity. They've mostly worked on some movies and shorts in recent years. I'm grateful that we got some really good entries during the short comeback. Les Miserables and Porphy specifically. It sucks that the long time president/producer died soon after and that was a wrap. But it doesn't seem like the ratings are very good these days as explained in this answerman. Makes sense.

Yeah, I think so too. I'm trying to select series that one might not think about or cross paths with much. Making more people aware was always the objective and even more so now that most of the more established titles have been used up already.

@HisokaHajime Not that many honestly, still got a lot to look forward to watch whenever. I've seen Anne of Green Gables, Dog of Flanders & Trapp Ikka Monogatari.

Is WMT/Nippon Animation still a thing these days btw?

Boltz | Dec 3, 10:40 PM
Good choice for AOTM. I'm definitely interested since I found Tokimeki Tonight to be quite fun. I think it's better this way - in general, people are passionate about their favorites so they don't always vote based on the merits of quality and uniqueness of the series.

We still have a ways to go before all of them are subbed. But the amount of progress over the last handful of years has been amazing. I truly believe we'll be at 100% at some point. Then I foresee some of these same groups targeting the ones that aren't under the WMT/Nippon Animation banner. TMS made a whole bunch of them. But you already have 20+ to choose from with a few more on the way. Which ones have you seen so far?
