Anime Series Recommendations

There are thousands of possibilities and anime series to look into and visit, and these series are the ones that I recommend to any of my friends depending on their various tastes or preferences. You can also take a look at these to get a sense of what I like as well!

  1. Air (A great KyoAni series.)
  2. Angel Beats! (Envisioned by Jun Maeda, director of famous Key works, such as Air, Kanon, and Clannad)
  3. Aoi Hana (A sweet shoujo ai romance story. Highly recommended!)
  4. Azumanga Daioh (A classic slice-of-life comedy!)
  5. Bakemonogatari (Senjougahara fascination, indeed!)
  6. Black Lagoon (A dark anime with great action. Moral and ethical themes at play here.)
  7. Cardcaptor Sakura (An original CLAMP classic.)
  8. Clannad (Another KyoAni work with great romance and drama.)
  9. Clannad: After Story (Sequel to Clannad. True tear-jerking emotional moments here. :cry:)
  10. Cowboy Bebop (An old classic series set in a rich sci-fi jazz, beat, and rock styled universe. Best to watch at late night.)
  11. Darker than BLACK (A very interesting series involving contractors who has strange powers.)
  12. ef – a tale of memories (Very nice visuals and drama.)
  13. ef – a tale of melodies (A sequel to ef – a tale of memories. Still has great visuals and drama!)
  14. Fate stay/night (An unique story and some great action scenes. Also, Unlimited Blade Works as well.)
  15. Genshiken (All about otakus!)
  16. Jigoku Shoujo (Hell Girl, Enma Ai, takes revenge on behalf of clients by sending people to hell.)
  17. Lucky Star (A great KyoAni slice-of-life comedy.)
  18. Kanon (A KyoAni and Key work. Need I say more?)
  19. Mawaru Penguindrum (Directed by Ikuhara, who worked on Sailor Moon and Revolutionary Girl Utena, this series will make you think with all its tantalizing allusions and symbols.)
  20. Neon Genesis Evangelion (The classic mecha anime famous for its psychology and gigantic EVAs.)
  21. Puella Magi Madoka Magica (A departure from mahou shoujo norms, this is where the main character doesn’t turn into a mahou shoujo until late in the show.)
  22. Ranma 1/2 (Extremely funny gender-bender martial arts anime!)
  23. Seto no Hanayome (An extremely funny mermaid comedy that had me laughing every episode!)
  24. Shakugan no Shana (A war between forces of balance and imbalance of existence. Also, Flame-haired Red-hot Eyes Shana. That is all.)
  25. Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu (Quite possibly the most famous. Every self-respecting anime fan should know about this anime. Haruhi is God. Even if she did cause the horrid Endless Eight…)
  26. Tenchi Universe (The classic original harem sci-fi series.)
  27. Welcome to the NHK! (A series about a hikikomori who has a relationship to a girl trying to reform him.)
  28. xxxHolic (Supernatural mystery series adapted from the manga by the famous authors, CLAMP.)

I may update this list once in a while to reflect the number of anime that I have seen up to now, so check by for any new recommendations!

  1. Nice to see you finally got it up and what a nice listing it is. I should have mine up in a few more days, since I am planning to add manga, video games, and other things to the list. I’ll also add you to the “Recommend List to check out” section once I am done. ^^

Come. Share your dreams...
