Anyone got any suggestions for good anime? Not the usual plotless, boring, bunch of schoolgirls rampaging about town with guns and short skirts crap, but high quality, entertaining anime. Here’s a few recommendations of my own:
My all-time favorite series. Excellent fight scenes, interesting characters, and engaging plot lines.
Can be a little silly sometimes, but is otherwise a decent series. Pretty good soundtrack too.
Despite the odd premise, actually a good show.
All of the Miyazaki films, plus most of the other Studio Ghibil films that Miyazaki didn’t direct.
A Wind Named Amnesia:
An excellent film. A group of aliens cast a wind over the entire earth which makes everyone forget all aspects of their lives, including language and technological skills. A boy and one of the aliens in human guise drive across the United States, observing how people act. It’s a philosophical, but still very entertaining anime.
And oldy but a goody. This was made back in the '70s, and was probably one of the first animated films. It’s about a battle between two powerful wizards in a post-holocaust type world.
