Hey there Riley, Yes I'm an anime fiend and never realized all this time you were here that you also like anime...cool! I take it, you've seen Sword Art Online which had a pretty awesome first season (I'm not a huge fan of the 2nd season) so I probably won't check out the rumored 3rd one. In order to provide recommendations, I'd have to know more of your background regarding personal tastes due to the genre variety but I'll try to wing it based off overall reception of the shows I've seen without being too subjective.
For starters there's the gateway shows that usually introduce people to anime such as Pokémon, Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Dragonball and to a lesser extent some would even consider Avatar the last air bender anime. Everyone everywhere probably knows what all of those shows are that I just listed which is why they're considered the gateway (introduction) to anime.
Next, we have the throwback/retro anime (I of course won't list them all but would name a few) Dragonball Z, Cowboy Bebop, One Piece, YuYu Hakusho, Inuyasha, Rurouni Kenshin and Neon Genesis Evangelion. I highly recommend DBZ, YYH and Cowboy Bebop if you're looking for nonstop action!
Some of my more personal favorites include: Death Note, Naruto Shippuden, Code Geass, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Tokyo Ghoul, Steins Gate, Ergo Proxy and Attack on Titan. I have plenty more favorites especially from some that I'm currently watching or have finished this year but for now we'll start with these for discussion. Death Note is arguably the best anime ever...following a character named Light that comes across a supernatural notebook giving him the power to kill anyone with the stroke of a pen. FmAb follows 2 brothers Ed and Al searching for a philosopher's stone to reclaim their bodies after an experiment gone terribly wrong and along the way find themselves in a conspiracy encountering several enemies. Attack on Titan is perhaps one of the most popular mainstream anime and for good reason, it follows main protagonist Eren who finds himself in a world where humans are being hunted by giant beasts made of flesh that stops at nothing to devour the human race. Last but not least, Naruto Shippuden continues from the prequel series Naruto and centers on ninja Naruto training to become leader (hokage) of his village someday while typically facing many powerful enemies on his journey-->there's much more to the story but that's the synopsis.
There's so many anime to choose from once you've found a good source or know anyone familiar on the subject. I'd say do a trial and error method by searching/googling best/popular anime and checking them out to see what fits your interest. You could find yourself highly fascinated with some and disappointed by others; also I must warn that a lot of anime having been established for a long time or completed a while ago contains hundreds of episodes: DBZ, Yu Yu Hakusho, FairyTail, Naruto Shippuden, One Piece, Bleach, Case Closed, Hunter X Hunter, Gintama and Hitman Reborn are some pretty good anime but filled with lots of episodes nearly impossible to finish...that's not to discourage you from pursuing these (it's just a warning just in case you were under the impression you could knock off some of these quickly to move onto the next). Feel free to continue communicating over the message boards although I don't check it as much as I used to...I still come back ;) have fun
Thanks Riles you enjoy the summer too!!!
Whats up? Why you disappeared?
Riley Cash, I give you the gift of The Cavalier...drink it in man!
My bad. This was on me. Daredevil season 2 was dope. Big improvement over the already awesome season 1. My final ratings is 9/10. Loved stories and fights with the Punisher and The Hand. What are your favourite moments?
Whats up Cash? Cool pic
Just chillin like a villain Riley. I'm in desperate need of a nice vacation somewhere since I racked up more than enough PTO to take a trip; I wanna spend this money and have a great time while doing it XD
Congratulations, my friend...you deserve it! And since I wished you luck before the vacation, I'll just take credit for the successful proposal ;)
Ahh you know me all to well Riley...The Cavalier will try to behave himself but makes 0 promises if provoked and it becomes open season XD PLease have a great time and hopefully you experience a lot of great things for awesome memories; I can't wait till you return.
Yeah haha, that was a crazy mood swing of mine. Don't mind that.
