Out of everything on my long ptw list Cowboy Bebop is the one anime I've been going back and forth on about whether or not to watch the most.

It's only 26 episodes and it's a classic. Why not?

I've been tired from homework, so I've been putting off these anime, because I've been in the mood for light-hearted anime.

Boogiepop Phantom
Dororo
Kurozuka
Perfect Blue
Maquia: When The Promised Flower Blooms



Perfect blue is pretty great, if you have a couple hours to spare I highly recommend

I just get the feeling I won't enjoy as much as most people do.

I getcha. I think either way it's an important anime to eventually watch at least. I think that for me at least its a show that resonates with me in how certain aspects of it makes me feel. I think if you judged cowboy bebop episode by episode it would just be a good show. But I think as a whole it's really something special. But when it comes to things like this, it's best to not think too much about how you're supposed to feel or think about it. Just enjoy the ride :)

This is true. Yea, I'll probably give it a try at some point.

I really want to see the Higurashi franchise, many people see it as a classic, but ... are too many chapters. I'm too much lazy. sometimes see a anime of more than 13 chap becomes difficult.


Don't watch it man, I had the same thoughts as you but the shows pretty much a mess. I regret going two seasons in.

I disagree, I found the show entertaining and the second season really made it come full circle.

Well, I did drop it a few episodes from the end, so maybe it does get tied together nicely like you said. Are the subsequent seasons any good?

Pretty much everything until I clear my DVD/BD backlog that's piling up right now.

I mean I'm not saying the ending is everyone's cup of tea, and I definitely don't know how well you enjoyed it but if you really didn't then I would recommend to just not watch it. I haven't watched any of the seasons after Kai.

I can't exactly remember what ticked me off about it, its just a general feeling, so maybe I'll go back and watch the last few episodes to refresh my memory.

Anything that has more than 24 episodes. Even sometimes I still think 24 episodes is still too much for me. Lately I've been busy with uni, so there's that.

Gintama, One Piece, Slam Dunk, Inuyasha, Sailor Moon are mainly the series I've been wanting to see but I can't since each series have more than 100 episodes! Even One Piece is still ongoing now lmao

I have watched some episodes here and there for all the series I mentioned except for Gintama. I really want to know the story all the way from the start till the very end.

Mainly Bakemonogatari, I've been putting it off forever.

I also need to get around to Cowboy Bebop and Boogiepop, both of which I just haven't been watching even though I thought they were good.

And I need to give stein's gate a second chance.

I only seen like 76 episodes and I like it, but it's just so long. There is no way I could ever catch up.

I can vouch for Code Geass & Hunter X Hunter for those who are trying to get into those shows, CG helped me get into anime and is still one of my favourites to this day, also a great time to get up to speed before the new movie comes out. Hunter X Hunter is IMO one of the best shows out there and this sentiment is seemingly echoed throughout many anime communities; including this one.

Personally I would love to get into Gintama, One Piece, Full metal Panic & Jojo but the length of these franchises is daunting atm although I'm sure I would like the shows. As I'm a bit of a completionist I tend to at least try to watch all relating shows, movies & specials so the more content a franchise has the more likely I am to put it off and watch an anime I deem "easier" to buy into.

Thank you for the advice, although I can see this anime later, but will not be soon. I don't think it could be worse than Elfen Lied the truth.

I really wanna watch Naruto, Naruto Shippuden and One Piece... I used to watch Naruto when I was a kid but I don't remember any of it, and I feel like to be a true anime fan, I should've at least watched Naruto and One Piece. I also wanna watch Gintama tho I'm not sure if it will be worth it or not. It's just that these shows are too long. :/

Well at least there's no relentless "NYUUU NYUUUUUUUUUUU"ing in Higurashi. Instead it is replaced with an almost as intolerable "NIPAAAAA".

If it was the violence/edge that you didn't like in Elfen Lied though, unfortunately for you there is a good deal of the same in Higurashi too, well maybe a bit less.

A couple animes I've been wanting to watch but never get around to is Bleach, and Baccano!
And tbh, I'm not like, dying to watch Death Note but it would be cool to see it for once, and be in the know.

Well, actually, the more violence the Anime/ Manga has better for me. What I did not like about Elfen Lied was the story and the characters. and of course I do not like the harem. Although it is not one, it is similar. I hope it is not so similar, thanks again for the advice bro.

You got it. Also, there is something of a pseudo-harem in Higurashi in my opinion, although to a lesser extent than in Elfen Lied.

If you do like a good amount of violence with your anime, I'm sure you've heard of it, but I would definitely point you to Psycho Pass. Your profile said you also like psychological shows, which Psycho Pass is, and fortunately there isn't a harem in sight.

Oh yes, I had heard that it is a violent cyberpunk, but that the sequel was bad. Well I'll take a look, thanks for the recommendation bro.

A lot of the classics / super popular shows

I like finding hidden gems, and if a show is already highly praised, it just kinda make me not want to watch them as much, almost as if being forced to watch

Maybe I'll get to it eventually, but it just doesn't feel as good to watch it.

I feel the same way but I watch them anyways because I'm afraid I won't find any gems. What are some of the lesser known titles you've come across?

gintama is one that i'd like to watch since is seems pretty popular, but there just so much of it. i just need to plan out how to attack that series.

another one is monogatari series. i started the first season but the pace of the show is just too weird to get into.

then theres ish i have no reason for like cowboy bebop, which i own on blu-ray and just haven't gotten around to it.

I pretty much watched everything I am interested in. Now only some untranslated older movies and series remain.

Eg this one:

https://myanimelist.net/anime/6942/Marine_Snow_no_Densetsu

Or this one:

https://myanimelist.net/anime/9546/Shirahata_no_Shoujo_Ryuuko

Or the full TV series of Jarinko Chie, directed by I.Takahata

In the mean time I have a lot to catch up with manga. It will take months.
