Finally went through and read everything and got all the suggestions (they were all pretty much good) And I've seen/am watching almost everything mentioned but:
House of Five Leaves
Gankutsuou (seen the original source and read the book though)
Ouran High School Host Club
Hello Kitty (gonna pass on that)
So I'm gonna need to check those out.
I agree (Does have a slow start though to be honest, but that is intentional).
I don't even like telling people anything about that show because of how interesting it was. It's one of those ones you really just got to watch.Shinsekai Yori (If you want to discover a pretty interesting post apocalyptic world) (Chars start as childs to introduce you to the world but they age as the episodes pass)
I noticed a lot of people mentioned this show and it's definitely one of the better ones. Along that vein is Natsume Yuujinchou.Mushi shi (If you want something relaxing and interesting to watch and dont mind episodic stuff)
That show is basically is like the anime version of Minority Report + Watch Dogs from the police's perspective. Really good thoughPsycho-Pass (Darker anime. Police themed in a city where people are assigned life carreers and constantly analysed by the Sybil system, an advanced computer system that pretty much dictates the people's life. People are usually arrested before they even commit a crime due to their psycho-pass showing their criminal intents. Storyline is worth it tho. I'd suggest against watching though if you get very uncomfortable when there's violence, it gets a bit creepy at times.)
I saw the posts about the three shows along the same vein (Log Horizon/Sword Art Online/.Hack//) and here's what I think about them:Log horizon / SAO ( If you want something MMO-Themed and don't wanna be stuck playing through the.//hack games) (Sao has horrible romance tho) (and as far as I'm concerned, both are lots worse than dot hack)
SAO had some cool concepts I'd like to actually see implemented in a game, but was kinda of average as an anime. The first season was better than the second, but had the best action scenes of the 3. That's all it had going for it in my book. 7/10
Log Horizion has a solid plot and gets a good grip on the aspects of traditional MMORPGs that are enjoyable/interesting. I also really like how it focuses more on the actual plot and the game elements in the show, such as the explanation of abilities and tactics you'd use. It has it's anime moments where it focuses on the stereotypical stuff and it doesn't get too serious, but it still stays consistent in quality overall. 8/10
.Hack I have mixed feelings about but overall love the series. Basically, I felt the games tell the story a whole lot better, since it's like you're getting a first hand experience of what the characters go through and the combination of the story mixed in with the gameplay and having to read though the in game BBS, or "The Board" was really interesting. The anime just doesn't do it justice but still interesting. 8/10
Durarara is one of those anime with plot convergences similar to Baccano! or in video games, Odin Sphere and even FFXIII to a lesser extent as far as quality, and I've always really liked that style. Because of that, I usually just go with telling people, "you should watch it, it's really good and I don't want to spoil it" lol. But yeah that show is hilarious along with a nice soundtrack and good plot and style.You could also check out Durarara, dunno how to describe it tho.
