  1. Hi, I recently watched "Cyberpunk: Edgerunners" and loved the style and especially the music. I realized that I liked Cowboy Bebop for the same reason. I especially liked the Jazz/Blues/Rock theme music. Can anyone recommend stylish anime like those two? Thanks in advance! er
  2. I just finished watching Star Blazers 2199 - it was amazing! Thank you.
  3. I spent the evening playing music from Robotech on my acoustic guitar. It's beautiful. The unconventional choices of keys, the subtle key changes, and the unsettled melodies so often found in anime... So, I decided to come here to ask for recommendations for anime gems that I might not be aware of. Please recommend away! If you help me find something, it will likely make my summer better. - I've watched everything by Studio Ghibli - I'm looking for "special" anime series or movies that I may have somehow missed. Here are a some examples of what I have watched and loved: -- Robotech -- Vinland Saga -- Death Note -- Erased (Boku dake ga Inai Machi) -- Puella Magi Madoka Magica -- Slayers -- Radiant I have watched Dragon Ball, Cowboy Beebop, Steins Gate, Demon Slayer, Naruta - but those (maybe with the exception of Cowboy Beebop) were mostly only entertaining, not the "special" that I am looking for. Really good music is one of the things that makes it special. Thanks in advance, and if you happen to not have watched something in my list, then you're really missing something - so enjoy!
  4. Hi, I have not had any luck finding an anime that I could watch in recent months, so I thought I would request recommendations here. I like complex layered animes that make you think. Some of my favorites are death note, vinland saga and erased. Would anyone have suggestions on what I could try next? Thanks in advance! S
  5. We finished both seasons of Radiant. The kids loved it, and say this is their favorite anime series so far, better than Slayers and Robotech. Does anything else come to mind that we can watch of this type?
  6. We have been watching Radiant. it's a big hit. Thanks @Ohiotaku!
  7. > t’s been a while since I watched it, but think you might mean Roy Fokker (Rick’s big-brother figure). Again, if you can find the original Star Blazers (aka Space Battleship Yamato) there are some similarites. Ah yes, I misspoke. I meant Roy. > Yeah, best not to expose children to Naga’s cleavage Along the same lines as Slayers, they also might like Radiant. Yes, I figured I would wait Also I didn't like the movies that much myself. If something is truly good, then it's fine to explain around small amounts of dubious content, but not in this case
  8. Thanks, lots of options to try! Yes, my kids are a bit ahead of their years in their understanding and perception. But at the same time I don't want to expose them to overly bad language (some is ok), excessive violence etc. This makes the Miyazaki movies perfect - because they are thought provoking, inward and immersive, but also don't have elements that make it inappropriate for children. We enjoyed Ponyo, Totoro, Howl's moving castle and many others very much. Slayers was perfect - the main issue there was language. The violence is peppered with humor - and the series is very funny, especially for my kids' age. We also only watched the series, not the movies. Robotech (Macross) is another good example - they understood and enjoyed everything. And anyway, I watch these with them, so we talk about the content extensively - they were pretty bummed when Rick Hunter died in Robotech, and that triggered a general conversation on Death. But thanks a lot for these suggestions!
  9. Thanks! We watched a few episodes of Cardcaptors, and my kids thought it was a bit "babyish." We're going to try Code Lyoko next.
  10. Thanks! Just to clarify, by "Cardcaptors" are you referring to Cardcaptor Sakura?
  11. My 9 year old son and daughter love anime. We have watched all of the Slayers series, and Robotech (The Macross Saga). We have also watched most of what we could get by Hayao Miyazaki. We are now looking for the next series to watch. I would love to get recommendations from other members!
  12. I just finished watching Vinland Saga. Wow, it was beautiful. The moment, "Become a true warrior, son of Thors," is one to stay etched in the mind. I'm going to try one of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and Fullmetal Alchemist, next. Thanks for these suggestions, everyone.
  13. Thanks for the suggestions! Vinland Saga is available on Amazon Prime Video in the US. That's where we also watched Robotech. Yes, I feel lucky that my kids took into anime so eagerly. They are only 8, and your typical kids growing up in the US, but now they want to watch Slayers every evening, and they really enjoy the humor. I do know about Slayers Revolution. But I didn't know that there were three original seasons, I only new of two. Something to look into. Thanks for the tip on Demon School Iruma-kun, we'll give that a try. I would love to hear examples of more animes in that comedy/action space. Thanks again! Ernie
  14. Hi everyone, I am 39 years old. I used to watch anime growing up. I remember watching all of the seasons of Slayers, the three Robotech series, among others, and having fond memories of them even as an adult. Recently, since the lockdown began, I introduced some of my favorites to my kids, and we started watching them and enjoying them together. I also started watching anime that is not child-appropriate privately... and landed on the masterpiece that is Death Note. Now after having watched it through, I am blown away. What an emotional and spiritual roller coaster the artists who made it sent everybody through. But having watched it, I am left craving for more, which brought me to this forum. If you have suggestions on what I can add to my list, then I would love to hear. I'm looking for ones that are thought-provoking, along the lines of Death note. Best, Ernie
