    Default Onrpg's Anime Essentials List

    This way we can cut down the repetitive threads asking the same question - looking for an anime.

    We'll use a voting system. You can only vote for one anime once. You can vote for as many anime as you like.
    You can also vote negatively. If an anime goes into the negatives- it'll be completely removed from the list.

    When stating the anime you don't need to include Genre Tags.
    Please note whether you're voting for the manga version, or the animated version - You can vote for both - They count as separate anime.

    Do not edit your posts - please just make a new post or it won't be noted.

    Genre Key
    The anime below are tagged with a genre. If you're looking for anime of a particular genre, use the tag (ex: [ACTION]) in your web brower's search/find function.

    • Action Anime [ACTION]
    • Adventure Anime [ADVENTURE]
    • Anime Films [MOVIES]
    • Comedy Anime [COMEDY]

    Lol. Of course I need to edit to update.
    People posting anime cannot edit or else I cannot count their votes.

    I organize in OpenOffice - and note where I leave off.. for no confusion.
    Then will update daily to weekly. I'll note when I last update on the Opening Post.

    One word... Miyazaki

    Many long masterful anime is always compared to Miyazaki. Basically stories that intertwine the involvement of human, spirit, and worlds of nature.

    Well his films are really amazing.. I love spirited away. But you can only tag two things.. so you can't tag Miyazaki and Movies, you need fantasy or something describing the type of film it is. Because he also does series so it may be confusing.

    So I think I'll keep it as film/movies.
    But could you please vote on your favorite films and series from him to add to the thread. Even if it means listing all of them, because thats fine too. Haha.

    LMAO, I cant just name one and dare not too (lazy). I love them all!! But yes, you can use Miyazaki as a genre. Almost everyone in the entertainment business does.

    I don't want to go into too much detail with the genres.. needs to be more general.

    So instead of Maho Shojo, Maho Shonen - I added supernatural and Magic - because thats what they are.. but with a gender.

    I'm debating adding harem or just keep comedy, and ecchi - because that basically covers all Harem series.

    I'm really debating Shojo-ai, Yuri, Shonen-ai, Yaoi - because romance doesn't really cover peoples particular taste. So how can the list help then search or a certain genre.

    I think if I add them all.. thats a little too much.. but then again maybe not.

    Someone help me decide that.


    There seems to be more genre discussion then actual voting. lol.
    At the end of the day I'll update after work.

    I'm going to edit and let you add 3 genre tags, its the only real way to compromise, and everything will work out better that way.
    Yes I think I can add more genres this way.
