I'm sorry you had to watch that. My twisted dorm roommate made me watch it in first year of university, and I nearly puked. I was rattled up for a couple hours after only watching a few minutes. I thought I was desensitized when it came to death, since I've seen some horrible things happen in front of me, but that was at another level...
I'm also filled with pure-hearted ulterior motives.

I'm not a racist, but I'm an artist haha.


Dude if you're an artist then that's pretty sad. I actually AM an artist and I find it extremely hard to believe that an artist would reject something just because of it's age.

I mean the works of Michelangelo, Van Gogh, Da Vinci... those are all like ancient history, but I don't think they're any less of art than something I sit down to draw today.

The racism thing was a metaphor, obviously.

No, I meant I'm an artIST, means I discriminate art. I'm not artist though.

Shit happens when I don't read wikipedia. I just watched Jin-Roh, and turns out it was a shitty anime. It's like the poor man's Ghost in the Shell, and hell I never even liked GotS in the first place. Geezzzzz. Jin-Roh is one anime I wish I could revert in time and read wikipedia for, since wikipedia has a very detailed plot synopsis for this bad anime. Furthermore, this anime was old, and the art was ewwwwwww.

I disagree, anime is quite time consuming, and I don't wanna watch something I won't like, so I do read wiki pages and shit as well.

You can't blame someone for that

You sure as hell can blame someone for calling an anime shitty or some other derogatory term when they haven't even watched the show though. Not wanting to watch something is one thing, but trying to criticize a show before watching it just makes him look like a fool.

Keep in mind this is just a summary of the show we are talking about. There is no way to accurately gauge the emotions, characters, and all that just from a wikipedia article. Simply because you aren't "in the moment".

Yeah, that's it. Unfortunately, nobody else seems to get it though.

Plot summaries don't convey emotions?! That's madness. I read plot synopsis for clannad, and was like "yeah, totally not worth 10 hours." Then I read into clannad after story and until I hit the word "dies," i'm like, "SRS BZNZ COMING UP!" then I go to that episode and start watching studiously to the end. Difference is, I just saved 14 hours of slice of lice and irrelevant comedy with wikipedia.

Come on man, you sure emotions aren't conveyed in wikipedia articles?

I know wikipedia tries to write in a non-biased, objective, and scientific manner, devoid of all emotions, but sometimes words inherit their own emotions, and those emotions from those words are enough for me to dive into an episode and start watching from there. With wikipedia, I can save hours upon hours and watch the meat of anime and not the shit. Sometimes an anime is just shit according to wikipedia and I can just not even touch it. Wikipedia tends to stay faithful to what happens in anime most of the time as well.

I wish wikipedia had saved me from watching Deadman Wonderland, but seeing that initial slaughter-fest made me stay for the whole thing, which was a complete waste of time. Same for Ga-Rei ZERO (as in I'd give this anime a zero if MAL had zero ratings hahaha!), I watched through the whole thing too. Damn you attention grabbers! Damn you! Wikipedia is powerful, but the power level of attention grabbers is over nine...thous....*dies from too much POWA*

But see, by looking at entirely what happens in Clannad, you ruined all the exciting, moment you've all been waiting for, twists. I mean,
So basically, you probably would've liked Clannad a lot more if you didn't ruin it by reading in depth into it. More importantly, how is watching one episode of a 52 episode series entertaining? Do you do that with everything you watch? I can understand skipping filler but...

In regards to the spoiler. If I read a wikipedia article I don't know the character in question, therefore I don't give a fuck what happens to them. I don't experience their expressions, their dialogues, the music that plays in a scene to add to the experience. It just isn't the same at all.

Also, those so called moments of "shit" you pointed out are necessary in order to develop characters and add to the weight of situations when the "important" stuff happens. Basically, for all your comments about "story", you don't even seem to know what that entails.

One question....Did you actually watch the anime on your favorites? Or did you just Wiki them and then watch when the show got to a part that grabbed your attention?

I'm a man of art as well. I sometimes have a hard time getting past older shows, with their overly detailed, grainy art and kinda awkward transitions and scenes. I'm just not a fan. I can appreciate them, but i don't always enjoy it. I love the simple lines and shadows used in today's art. So i can see the sentiment there. I won't skip an anime just because of art, but it does go lower in my backlog for poor art

But with story...why even watch anime? All it seems you're reading about it, then getting to the scene you want to watch. You're not only spoiling the surprise of whatever story, but you're also skipping the parts that potentially make a story excellent. Characters development is a HUGE part of story, and is something that is almost never covered in summaries. You miss all the character development, you miss all the small parts that make a character tick; all you get out of a summary is surface stuff about the overall plot. You could honestly be skipping some of the greatest shows just because of a crappy random summary.

If all you want is the gore and cool art, why not just read the wiki and youtube the "good" bits. Skip all the other "shit" that way you don't have to waste your time

I only keep watching an anime from the start if the question of "why the hell is this relevant?" doesn't come up. When that question comes up, I go to wikipedia.

That's what happened in Clannad. I was attached to the MC's depressing speech of why he hates his town so much, as well as how he got to know this weird girl. An interesting start. But then it got all comedic and stupid when this girl does the Way of the Thousand Kick Move on this blond guy and I just couldn't take it.

Anyway, I hope u guys realize that this's a rec thread. I hope more useful recs come up.

You're right, calling an anime shitty from a summary IS stupid.

BUT!

People have different opinions on anime, if they want to read to plot and find that they don't like the initial summary, they're not gonna waste 12 hours or so to watch the series.

For example:

If I find a protagonist that is as wimp, I'll drop the anime straight away. For example. Evangalation.
I hate pussy characters, so I'm not gonna sit through shinji whining and crying all the time.

Haha, it's funny how everyone says that. I think why I love Shinji so much is because of the irony. By that I mean the fact that he's a total bitch, yet still by far the strongest and most crucial mech pilot that saves everyone's ass and beats the angels to a pulp.

Shinji is still one of the worst characters anime has thrown at me. I mean I know why they have him as a bitch, and its all very psychological and all, but man is he hateable, not to mention the many imitations that he's spawned.

To the contrary. I would've dropped Higurashi because of the stupid first arc. But I read up on the first arc and skip to the second arc and now it's one of my favorite anime.

Dropped gunslinger girl and watched the rest except vampire knight, which seems like a kiddie vampire story (PG-13 rating, that's how I tell).

I can't understand your logic. It literally hurts my head to try and think the way you do. How can you verify whether or not something is stupid, without actually seeing it for yourself. You read an arc summery, and decided it was stupid? This is like trying to reason with my 7 year old nephew.. the first two episodes have the best hook I've seen in an anime. But you are just gonna say, "but yeah, different preferences... didn't actually see it, but I know exactly what happened."

Actually, I watched the first arc of the first arc where the guy went "RAMPAGE" and then everything is back to sunshine and flowers. Didn't make sense and got annoying so I read the wikipedia summaries.

Logic? This brainiac is just about the least logical person I've ever encountered here on MAL. I'm pretty sure now that he's just trolling us because it's hard to believe a person could be this dense. Either way stanklem you are way beyond help if you want to continue trying to enjoy anime good luck cause no one here can really understand your twisted critical perspective.

And by the way if you really appreciated high quality art, animation, action and gore, you would enjoy Hellsing Ultimate. Period. Nobody is saying it has the best plot because quite frankly the storyline isn't even close to being the best unlike Berserk and Texhnolyze. However it's completely contradictory for a person to say he enjoys the above and somehow end up trashing Hellsing. And then to end up shitting on 'merciless gore series' with actual amazing well thought out and diverse plots is even further mind boggling.

Hellsing Ultimate was dropped because it never finished, and I don't think it ever will. I don't want to waste time knowing that I'll reach a cliffhanger. The art is decent. It's not good and it's not bad. It's mediocre.

I never finished Hellsing ultimate and my judgement on it as of episode 3, is that it sucks, end of story. Your judgement? it doesn't matter to me. You shouldn't let your emotions run you over because my judgement is the way it is.

Yes because you enjoy merciless gore anime so much yet Alucard mowing down an army of people in all sorts of fucked up ways, and a main character getting two of his limbs hacked off in texhnolyze, and berserk an amazing merciless series that's just a bit old, none of that interested you AT ALL. And what's more each series is completely different from one another in every single way except for the merciless gore part. Not to mention you didn't even like the first arc of Higurashi. The only masterpiece 'merciless gore' anime that's left is Monster which you seem to think is mediocre as well so now you're 0-5 in a genre you supposedly really like. Guess what pal, it doesn't get any better than that.

It doesn't exactly effect me emotionally to know your bullshitting us, I'm just calling it like I see it is all. Perhaps you're the one getting emotional considering you judge anime you haven't actually seen and speak as if your word is fact. Claiming that an anime 'sucks' because you didn't like what you read on a wikipedia page? How exactly does that work again?

I'm thinking at least 1 of these 3 things are true -

1. Anime isn't for you
2. You're a troll
3. You got a bit emotional and now don't want to admit that the anime we suggested might actually be better than most of the crap you've already seen

Your list suggests that you don't even like anime, don't get pissy just because all 6 of us have noticed that.

What's wrong with me disliking Hellsing Ultimate, Berserk, and Texhnolyze? Why you gotta hate someone for disliking those anime? I won't like them no matter what anyone says.

The kind of anime I'm asking for is something like Another, Higurashi (minus first arc for boring plot), and Highschool of the Dead.

I'm not looking for old-school anime like Berserk and Texhnolyze, and Hellsing (which I think the art is adapted from old-school ways of anime drawing, despite its young age).

Oh your looking for anime like Highschool Of The Dead and anime that look good on wikipedia. Okay well that clears it all up. LOL

The reason you're catching flak is that you're saying things like 'this anime is shit' 'this anime is boring' 'i won't like them no matter what', when you literally have not even seen Hellsing, Texhnolyze, or Berserk. You have not seen them. Your opinion of them therefor can't be taken seriously. That's all we're saying, if you wanna shoot yourself in the foot go ahead. You've seen like 3 episodes of each series when in fact each series gets better and better until it peaks in a glorious fashion during the latter half of the show (the part you haven't even seen).

You shit talk anime that have amazing plots. Berserk is like a Shakespearian epic of trust, love, and betrayal and evil and Texhnolyze is like an insanely creative cyberpunk gone wrong written by David Lynch and yet still you say they suck after 3 whole episodes and name drop Highschool Of the Dead and extremely cheap generic school anime in it's place. It makes no sense. The 2 anime I've suggested to you are so beyond the scope of imagination compared to schoolkids running from freaking zombies, both series have extremely insane and fucked up unique endings that left me breathless by the end of them. I'm talking goosebumps, hair standing up on the back of my neck, "what the fuck did I just witness", accompanied by a very slow return to reality as I sat there with wide eyes and a racing mind. I first watched Berserk when I was 14 (not a good idea, these anime are for adults), and Texhnolyze 7 years afterwards. They both changed my life, and most definitely changed my view on anime and storytelling in general. I've never been effected more than these series by any other books, movies, tv series, anime manga etc. (except for maybe One Piece)

But yeah, wikipedia says they suck so it must be true.

There's nothing wrong with you disliking those anime, but there is definitely something wrong with the way you worded your initial request. I think it's clear that "Mercilessly violent/gory anime with a good plot" is not quite what you are looking for. I suggest trying to re-think what it is you are looking for, and re-phrasing your request so that it is more accurate.

This was further demonstrated when you said:

Gore and good plot? That's what I see.

I guess you guys take "mercilessly gory" as something like Deadman Wonderland (bad/incomplete plot). Yeah it's splendid if I can have something like that AND a good plot AND modern art. idk if such things exist.

Mercilessly gory certainly wouldn't describe those anime you listed, that's precisely why you need to change your request. And rather than asking for something with a good plot it would be more beneficial to specify what type of plot you like most. It sounds to me like you are looking more for a modern horror/thriller type anime with a fun story, rather than a serious story, and some violence. That would at least be a good starting point in changing your request.

I think he meant Horror/merciless/gory.
You should try Shiki and Mirai Nikki

That's crazy. Granted it takes a while to get to the gore, but "merciless" would be the perfect way to describe the last several episodes of that show (as well as the special episodes, which are especially fucked up)

Cool poem bro. Jingle Bells and Merry Christmas to you too.

Now I need some recs instead of people ranting about my tastes.

Geezus Christ. That trailer is what made me watch Blood-C. Turns out, the anime's a piece of crap preview to a movie.

Note that quoting isn't working...lol

Your list suggests that you don't even like anime, don't get pissy just because all 6 of us have noticed that.

If there is ever a thread that needs to die it's this one. I'd rather just forget it exists tbh.

I understand you want useful recommendations, but so far all things recommended to you are shit you say. Listen your looking for a good story, do you know what makes a good story?

You said you start reading Wikipedia summaries when the happy shit starts, well by doing that you are skipping some of the most important parts of the series you watching. A good story had both good and bad parts, happy and unhappy, ligt and dark. It's about the contrast between those two, which make a story good. You need to get in the mood and get to know the main character, this makes the dark and gory parts stand out more and makes you actually FEEL the emotion.

You said a series is just shit or stupid because you've read the Wikipedia summary, god no... -___- Facepalm moment here... If you can't stand happy parts then why are you even watching anime, anime is full of these so called happy parts and comedy stuff because that's a part of it. I agree with most people on this thread, we can not help you any further.
