Hello everyone, this is my first "megathread" explaining on how to start watching anime, so I decided to make one single thread for all of these questions. If you're about to make a post something like this:

"What anime do I watch?", "Anime recommendations?", "____ kind of anime?", this is the thread where you can ask me or someone else for recommendations.





I'll write down a few examples, and you can ask your questions here. I or someone else will try to reply in a timely manner.

(Keep in mind I'm a lazy ass, so the list probably won't be as large as you're hoping.)

EDIT: Spoilers seem to be broken. I've changed it.






My recommendations.

Code:
- Monogatari Series
- Fate Series
- Kaguya-Sama: Love is War
- Kimi no Na Wa (Movie)
- Koe no Katachi (Movie
- Psycho-Pass
- Neon Genesis Evangelion
- ERASED
- Princess Jellyfish
- Angel Beats
- Clannad
- Parasyte

I think Cowboy Bebop is the "least anime-like anime" i've ever watched, meaning, it's not that intense like a lot of other animes, becuase let's admit it, some animes can be a bit too much for someone who is new in the genre. Let's just say that Cowboy Bebop is much more American/European style than Japanese, so it's a good start. And, it's a cult-anime, so everyone should watch it at least once who watch animes regularly.

That's a great and thorough selection - I think I'll definitely find a lot of inspiration in this list, even though I've seen quite a lot of anime already, so thanks a lot!

Do you think you would ever find the time to make a small selection of, like, the three best out of each genre or something like that? That would be really helpful as well.

This is indeed a megathread.

How about you just put all those into a MAL account to have it more organised?
