Need anime recommendation


kya

Question

Hi everyone! Does anyone know of a slow-paced brooding series with a female lead? Preferably with a journey as the main plot structure and mysterious (but not at all thriller) vibes, where they let you guess a lot and don't explain anything explicitly. I know these are very specific, but just on the off chance that this story is actually out there and someone here watched it

Haibane Renmei or Kino’s Journey (prefer the older version myself). Maybe Serial Experiments Lain too.

I'd second Haibane Renmei.  Lain is a bit hard-core.  (To put it mildly, and not in a sexual sense.. more like Inception-level mind-messing.  Plus there's a bit of gore and thriller-ness.)  Another one that might be what you're looking for is So Ra no Wo To, or maybe Girls Last Tour (少女終末旅).

I guess I'd throw in Gakkougurashi too.  It is technically a post-apocalyptic zombie psycho-thriller but you would never know it from the first few episodes.  It starts after the "event" and for most of the series it is just a sort of shoujo mystery.  Definitely "brooding" - or at least foreboding - for most of the series.  Only once or twice do you even see zombies.  Mostly they're just part of the somewhat hidden backstory.

hth..
