Well I can't quite decide between these anime and its always annoying to decide which one to pick, so I'm asking you guys decide

Ill have this go on till I finish Fate/Zero so probably till like sunday-tuesday or something

Also I'm very in the mood to watch any of em so don't let that stop you from voting

Ill probably watch em in order of how many votes they got

also leave reasons if u want because that could sway as well

and if you have reason to give another option, go for it!

thanks!

It all depends on which genres you like the most, or what genre would you like to go next
For example if you like sci-fi, watch psycho-pass or ghost in the shell.
If you like shonen you should watch magi, and so on.
I hope this was helpful and I hope you enjoy the most of the next show you watch.
Well then, I bid you farewell.

Please watch Natsume Yuujinchou, it's different from the rest on the list (well probably not so different from Mushishi), and it's beautiful.

But then again, depends on what kind of anime you're in the mood to watch.

Interesting way to ask for recs, I like it!

Full Metal Panic! (don't forget season 2, FMA:The Second Raid, and Fumoffu, the comedy series based on FMP!)

This series strikes a good balance between romance, comedy, action, story, and interesting characters. There is actually positive character progression. Fumoffu is pretty hilarious as well, really I have never seen a comedy series quite like it. It will have you rolling.

Seconding Natsume Yuujinchou. And as much as I do I would watch Magi first, I think it's a damn masterpiece (so far)

Watch Hatarakou Maou-Sama the first 2 episodes are extremely funny. Sadly the rest of the episodes that I've seen so far are kinda lackluster.

Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu - it has the best cast of characters an history that ive seen in anime so far, besides you liked Code Geass so its highly possible that you d like Ging Eiyuu Densetsu as well

I highly recommend Neon Genesis Evangelion - it's said to be the bible of all anime. You'll see what I mean when you watch it. :)

Do you mean as in how old it is? Or maybe the fact that you either worship it or think it's complete rubish? Oh well but yeah seconding.

Sadly, over 50% of the series are fillers, from what I heard.

My vote goes toward Texhnolyze but I'd also recommend Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

I'd imagine the latter, as it's not old and is still an active franchise today.

I just finished Psycho-Pass and really enjoyed it, so my vote went to Psycho-Pass. I wish I'd watched it sooner.

Darker than Black and Psycho Pass are easy to marathon through, while the other ones (notably Natsume Yuujinchou and Mushishi) are slower paced.

Watch everything in the end, but my vote is on the first two.

I would say MAgi I was not expecting much from it and after finishing the 1st season and waiting for the next ep from season 2 I must say I'm enjoying watching MAGI a lot.
It's a really fun adventure and a bit different due to the arabian nights theme which makes it a bit more unique in the art department.

Lol since you're already watching F/Z why do you still need opinions?

Anyway, I am watching Texhnolyze now, it feels a little too heavy for me, so I watch it side by side with House of Five Leaves, (episode ratio 4:1). They are both really slow pace, Texhnolyze focus on building the atmosphere and tension, while House of Five Leaves gives off the slice of life feelings.

I recommend Magi or Hatarakou Maou-Sama. Keep mind that second season of magi is even better than the 1st

Psycho-Pass and Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu are also good, but I didn't finish watching Ginga yet

As for darker in black, I think it is overrated. I only watched about 7 episodes and dropped it. I don't like episodic shows.
