    Default Japanese Cartoon Suggestions

    I used to watch animes that were available on TV when I was a child, and I enjoyed a few of them. Sailor Moon and Gundam Wing are my favorites.

    These days, I feel like modern anime is all very similar. They all consist of recycled formulas, and the characters all look like trying-too-hard-to-look-cute 10-year-olds.

    The art detail and technique has decreased, the songs are all generic, and everyone looks and acts like they're 10. Can anyone suggest animes that are more diverse, mature, and less dumb pls?

    I like romance, magical girls, badassery, but not really a fan of super gory violence unless the storyline and art are really really good.

    I liked Cardcaptors when I was younger, but I think they're all ten year olds.

    Sword Art Online, Full Metal Panic!, Cowboy Bepop, No Life No Game, Ah! My Goddess. There's more out there but seems if you're only finding "trying-too-hard-to-look-cute 10-year-olds" than you are looking at those targeted for that age range group. Although there are some good ones but I can't remember them off the top of my head. You can always search for genre on http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/ or on http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=main .

    Edit: Ah Berserk is good but that is gory but very good story.

    We have a sub-forum specifically for anime discussion, the Anime Nation.


    Buuuut.

    Eden of the East
    Attack on Titan
    .Hack series (the first one, the others kinda follow the retarded chibii formula)
    BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad (one of my all-time favorites)
    Summer Wars (Awesome feature film)
    Any Ghibli film, especially Princess Mononoke.
    Heroic Age (actually, I think I might re-watch this soon now that I think about it)
    Break Blade (Magic, Giant robots, romance, kingdoms at war, basically everything a good anime needs)

    Off the top of my head.

    Eh, No Life No Game isn't all that mature and it's a comedy, so there's a lot of chibi, harem, ecchi crap. Ah! My Goddess is also a harem/comedy, so not very serious (tho it's kinda like Tenchi Muyo in that it's a comedy/harem but still has a decent semi-serious backstory that keeps it interesting and going).

    Well No Life No Game isn't mature, that can be ignore but so far the anime is quite interesting so despite the genre it's a good animation. It defies the "trying-too-hard-to-look-cute 10-year-olds".

    Ah! My Goddess is actually romance and does not have harem. The other characters followed for story development. The main character from beginning to end has only liked and confess to belldandy. Though it still have a comedy side to it.

    Edit: Beck is a hella good animation. Despite it being repetitive at times. The manga ended weird it was a good point for the animation to stop where they stopped.
