    Default Looking for a new Anime to watch~

    Well, I just finished Guilty Crown and it was decent but pretty short. Here's what I prefer in my Anime's but I'm willing to look at others if they sound like I would be interested:

    *Dubbed. I know most people like Subbed but I hate reading and watching them at the same time, regardless if the Voice Actors suck or not.

    *Action/Romance It doesn't have to include Romance but Action is a must.

    I'm not a big fan of Mecha but It's fine if it's not the main focus.

    * Swords and magic are my favorite weapon types but it's not a MUST. I just prefer them over guns and pew pew.

    Animes I've watched so far include:

    Inuyasha
    Guilty Crown
    kaze no stigma
    Bleach
    SAO
    Dot Hack

    There's probably more but I forgot them. I've already downloaded Princess Mononoke so that's on my "To Watch" list. I heard it's fairly good. I usually stay more interested in Anime's when there's a connection with the main character and some girl. Don't ask me why, I've just always enjoyed a good story and this usually adds to it.


    So, any suggestions on some that I have missed? I'm sure there's plenty.

    Log Horizon and Accel World have a MMORPG theme to it like SAO and .hack//. Log Horizon is still ongoing right now and I rather like it. I never finished Accel World because the main character is a midget whiny fat kid with self-esteem issues that is always crying which is really irritating. It's quite popular though for whatever reason that is so should give it a try.

    Magi is also another one of my favorite that is still ongoing. It's all magic and swords.

    I can give you few action. Includes mostly guns and i wont check if they got dubs ( i hate dubs ) .

    Hellsing Ultimate ( pure action )
    Psycho-Pass is a really good anime.
    Fate/Zero ( Fate/Stay night ) have sword fights. Also has romance ( i guess -ish )

    Oh my gosh, you haven't seen Princess Mononoke? Just watch all the Ghibli movies (not ponyo).

    Watch all Ghibli movies, even ponyo.

    My favorite type of anime is sci-fi, specifically mecha sci-fi :P So I can't recommend many. BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad is an anime I recommend to everyone, though. Also, Summer Wars, Eden of the East, and Lelouch of the Rebellion (Mecha, but not the main focus).

    actually from the past we had soo many such threads ... that taking a bit of your time and searching trough this board would help you find your answer or anyones ... on other hand you could just use MAL by ... searching the anime you like and scrolling down to Your favorite anime > recommendations for that anime ...

    Or best one is always check past 2 seasons ... or current season.
