Really weird animation, but the story seems good

Aldnoa.Zero

Ben Jon

Derivative, but decent

Attack on Titan

Ben Jon

Speed watch it and try not to think too hard.

Bleach

Ben Jon

Way, way too long at 700eps+. Watch the first two arcs (70ish) if any.

Blue Exorcist

Ben Jon

Trite, but pretty to look at.

Case Closed

Ben Jon

A classic. Aka: Detective Conan.

Death Note

Ben Jon

Speed watch this. Actually, you can skip the whole second half.

Durarara

Ben Jon

Very innovative story telling. The first series/arc is the most interesting

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

Ben Jon

Watch the original Fate/Stay Night before this. I am the bone of my sword.

Fate/Zero

Ben Jon

Watch Unlimited Blade Works before this (or wait until Heaven’s Feel actually comes out)

Gargantia

Ben Jon

Twists and twists. First half is very slice-of-life though.

Glitter Force

Ben Jon

Unless you like butchered-moe pain up in your face, just watch PreCure

Gunslinger Girl

Ben Jon

Classic early 2000s, but super soul crushing.

Gurren Lagann

Ben Jon

Believe in the me that believes in you

Hunter x Hunter

Ben Jon

Way too long, but I’ve heard good things.

Inuyasha

Ben Jon

Too long with no pay off, but its a show that every high school girl has seen, so do with that as you will.

Kill la Kill

Kuro Mukuro

Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Ben Jon

If you haven’t seen much Magical Girl DON’T START WITH THIS ONE. When you do watch it, don’t read anything about it before you do.

Magi: The Kingdom of Magic

Ben Jon

Magi is pretty well trusted shounen

Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic

Ben Jon

Magi: Adventure of Sinbad

Ben Jon

Mushishi

Ben Jon

Atmospheric and moody. Episodic with no over-plot

Naruto

Ben Jon

So yeah, you can go for about 3 or 4 arcs if you want, stop after the waterfall fight, its bug farting all the way down

Nuka: Rise of the Yokai Clan (Demon Capital)

Ben Jon

Subtiles of subtitles

Robotech

Ben Jon

Classic robots, and nothing else. You’re better off watching Macross

Ruroni Kenshin

Ben Jon

Classic samurai anime, but the movies are better

Samurai Flamenco

Ben Jon

Silver Spoon

Ben Jon

FARMING

First half of season one is ok. Second half and beyond is bad. Why don’t you just go watch Log Horizon.

Ben Jon

More magical high school?!

The Seven Deadly Sins

Hard pass
