Suggestions of Good Anime to Watch
Hi, I'm new to this site and I am interested in getting into a couple good shows.
I love anime, but I am also really picky about it. If I can't stand the humor, the characters, or the pacing of a show/movie, I just will not watch it. Sometimes I can stomach it though. For example, I absolutely could not stand Vash's goofiness in Trigun when I started watching it, but I saw the depth to his character that would end up shining in the second half of the series, so I stomached through it, knowing the payoff was worth it. If I can watch it through to the end, then I like it.
The anime I do like are more character-driven, atmospheric shows with brilliant writing, smart or well-pulled off goofy humor, and great, stylistic action. Anime I don't like have bad dubs, flat characters, annoying voices/humor, and incomprehensible or jumbled plots.
For reference, here are animes I like:
Any Hayao Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli film I have seen (even Ponyo, I thought I would hate that one)
Ghost in the Shell movie
The Matrix and Pacific Rim kind of count since they are heavily influenced by Anime
Aquarion Evol (The show that actually brought me to this site, saw a preview of it on the copy of Akira I bought)
Animes I don't like:
Naruto, One Piece, Black Butler, and Hetalia (I don't like the humor and/or my sister and her friends like them and I can't stand what they like).
