Anime Recommendations by Genre

Action
[/size][/b]
Image
Black Lagoon (ブラック・ラグーン - Black Lagoon)
Episodes: 12
Studio: Madhouse
Directed by: Sunao Katabuchi
Original Airdate: April 9, 2006 - June 25, 2006

Description: Black Lagoon focuses on the misadventures of a group of mercenaries, but the only one you care about is Revy. Car chases, gun fights, explosions, dark humour and gritty dialogue make Black Lagoon an action series that has it all for fans of the Hollywood-esque style of action.


Image
Cowboy Bebop (カウボーイビバップ - Cowboy Bebop)
Episodes: 26
Studio: Sunrise
Directed by: Shinichiro Watanabe
Original Airdate: April 3, 1998 - April 24, 1999

Description: Join bounty hunter Spike Spiegel as he drifts across the universe with his companions in his ship, The Bebop. Its episodic nature, style over substance direction and heavy homages to western cinema make it incredibly easy to get into for both inexperienced anime watchers and veterans.


Image
Fullmetal Alchemist (鋼の錬金術師 - Hagane no Renkinjutsushi)
Episodes: 51
Studio: Bones
Directed by: Seiji Mizushima
Original Airdate: October 4, 2003 - October 2, 2004

Description: Alchemist Edward Elric searches for the Philosopher's Stone in the hope that he can use its power to restore his brother's body. One of the most widely acclaimed shonen series of all time, Fullmetal Alchemist was remade in 2009 under the title Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. Brotherhood sticks more closely to the plot of the manga while 2003 deviates fairly heavily as the series progresses, so the preference here is down to opinion.


Image
Hunter x Hunter (ハンターハンター - Hunter Hunter)
Episodes: 62
Studio: Nippon Animation
Directed by: Kazuhiro Furuhashi
Original Airdate: October 16, 1999 - March 31, 2001

Description: 12-year-old Gon leaves home to take the Hunter Exam, a test that will declare him an official Hunter if he passes, in the hopes that in doing so he will reunite with his father. He is joined by the assassin Killua, the doctor Leorio and the not-trap Kurapika. While this series was also remade in 2011 by Madhouse, the '99 version is objectively superior unless you are bad at looking at things.


Image
Kyousougiga (京騒戯画 - Kyousougiga)
Episodes: 10
Studio: Toei Animation
Directed by: Rie Matsumoto
Original Airdate: October 10, 2013 - December 19, 2013

Description: A young girl named Koto wanders into an alternate dimension Kyoto known as the Mirror Capital, where youkai and humans live together. Absolutely on a level of its own in recent years when it comes to visuals and action sequences, Kyousogiga blends gorgeous detail with an utterly bizarre setting to create this Alice in Wonderland-esque series.
Comedy
Image
Azumanga Daioh (あずまんが大王 - Azumanga Daiou)
Episodes: 26
Studio: J.C. Staff
Directed by: Hiroshi Nishikiori
Original Airdate: April 8, 2002 – September 30, 2002

Description: Adapted from a manga often considered to be the master of the 4-koma format, Azumanga Daioh chronicles the lives of a group of high school girls. Effectively plotless, the charming and frequently funny character interactions have made this one a staple in discussions about comedic anime, like some kind of Japanese Seinfeld with a cuter cast.


Image
Cromartie High School (魁!!クロマティ高校 - Sakigake!! Kuromati Koukou)
Episodes: 26
Studio: Production I.G.
Directed by: Hiroaki Sakurai
Original Airdate: October 2, 2003 – March 25, 2004

Description: Non-delinquent Kamiyama is enrolled in a class at a school populated entirely by delinquents, and things only get weirder from there. A truly bizarre cast of characters including Freddie Mercury, a gorilla and a robot results in a show where everyone feels like the comedy foil to everyone else. A show of genuine wit and unexpected humour that can have you laughing at the absolute dumbest of punchlines.


Image
Detroit Metal City (デトロイト・メタル・シティ - Detroit Metal City)
Episodes: 12
Studio: Studio 4°C
Directed by: Hiroshi Nagahama
Original Airdate: August 8, 2008 - October 28, 2008

Description: Poor Soichi Negishi only wants to write soothing indie pop songs but seems to have found himself as the frontman for a vulgar satanic death metal band, DMC. Completely unrelenting with its sheer explicit and excessive nature, Detoit Metal City isn't a show for everyone but if you can look past the jokes about killing your own parents or the ridiculous amounts they say the word "rape" in this series you're rewarded with something quite unique in its lunacy.


Image
FLCL (フリクリ - Furi Kuri)
Episodes: 6
Studio: Gainax
Directed by: Kazuya Tsurumaki
Original Airdate: April 26, 2000 - March 16, 2001

Description: Welcome to a town where nothing happens. An exceptional soundtrack and gorgeous visuals complement a totally absurd and disjointed story of cynical highschooler Naota and the energetic Haruko Haruhara. Join them as robots battle with guitars, cataclysms are solved through baseball, and everything is a penis reference.


Image
Nichijou (日常 - Nichijou)
Episodes: 26
Studio: KyoAni
Directed by: Tatsuya Ishihara
Original Airdate: April 3, 2011 – September 25, 2011

Description: Three schoolgirls, a child genius and a robot. Nichijou presents an absurd fusion of numerous different styles of humour across its many sketches. The characters are adorable, the jokes are simple, and KyoAni truly bring their showmanship A-game, resulting in one of the nicest looking TV anime in recent memory.

Image
5 Centimeters Per Second (秒速5センチメートル - Byousoku 5 Centimeter)
Episodes: 1
Studio: CoMix Wave Inc.

Description: A romantic drama split into three parts, Makoto Shinkai's astounding visuals and lush sceneries work with a gorgeous soundtrack to create a film that can only be described as mesmerizing.

Thing is the manga trails off in quality supposedly and after reading it the "ending" to the current "arc" is a bit off tbh plus the manga itself hasn't actually ended yet so it could all go tits up.

Hoping it doesn't tho because currently I kind of love it

also nice to hear KFG doing its OP
Thing is the manga trails off in quality supposedly and after reading it the "ending" to the current "arc" is a bit off tbh plus the manga itself hasn't actually ended yet so it could all go tits up.

Hoping it doesn't tho because currently I kind of love it
The animes doing a good job so far imo. Liking the angle with the mc reliving out his childhood and I've always been a fan of event altering plots when its done well

That list reminds me, finally got round to reading through Berserk. Shocking review: it's pretty good, I really like the art style, it's a shame it borrows so much from things like Dark Souls though

KEEP IN MIND this is just a list to show some readily available and easy to get into(for the most part, with the exceptions of the super long stuff like LoGH and the more psych-y stuff like that entire section and Utena). I'm not saying these are the best stuff in each category nor am I saying they're the best stuff available there's actually a TON of great stuff I wanted to recommend but had to leave out because I couldn't fit them into any specific category.

clearly this means I just need to make more gooseberry fool lists.

fmab versus fma is down to opinion so I named the original and talked about brotherhood in the description
