    Hey ;)
    So I made a thread asking for advice last year when I was pretty much starting watching anime, and I got some good suggestions from here!
    Now that I watched a decent amount of anime (not as much as most "weebs" tho lol), Im looking for some advice again since I dont really find new ones that look interesting to me when I just browse MyAnimeList.
    Here is a link to MAL: https://myanimelist.net/animelist/IncarnationT1?order=4&order2=-8&status=2
    I guess you can see quite clearly what kind of anime I enjoyed and plan to watch so I would appreciate suggestions that you think I would enjoy and why :D

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Judging from your list it seems you like the super/supernatural power esk stuff. I would look into Baccano, Durarara, and K Project. Baccano and Durarara are written by the same person so the styles are similar in the sense that there are many "main" characters and the perspective shifts a lot. Baccano is also one of the few anime i recommend watching the dub of because it brings the characters to life more considering half of them are Italian gangsters and its hard to pull of an Italian accent in Japanese. But be warned its confusing as all heck until the end but its is so worth it. Durarara isn't bad as a dub either. K Project has a lot of super powered fights happening and is really just a pretty anime to watch. Baccano and Durarara lean more towards a supernatural power while K Project has more of a super power feel to it.

    Seeing from what you've watched you might enjoy these:
    from watching Erased and Life in a Different World from Zero you might like Steins;Gate. Similar time travel theme, with its own story that can be quite emotionally draining to experience. Looks like you're already watching log horizon after SAO? Log Horizon unfortunately may not see a continuation due to the author evading taxes. Other than that, I'd recommend Overlord for its different approach on getting stuck in a virtual MMO. I'll also recommend Accel World since that was written by the same author as SAO.
    And looks like you also like adventure related stuff? Maybe you might like Kino's Journey. Quite a unique anime, a bit on the philosophical side though.

    Your list mainly looks like lighthearted, action shonen. I'd probably suggest Hunter x Hunter. It reminds me of MHA because of the unique characters and powers you see and the cast interaction is pretty good. 3rd season is probably my favorite. 2nd season is good because there's more fighting in it.

    It's some 100 episodes and not finished because the author takes super long hiatuses, however. But it's a very fun show.

    Im gonna try Hunter x Hunter ;)
    How do the version from 1999-2001 (https://myanimelist.net/anime/136/Hunter_x_Hunter?q=hunte) and the one from 2011 (https://myanimelist.net/anime/11061/Hunter_x_Hunter_2011?q=hunte) relate to each other ? Should I watch both ? Is the 2011 version a sequel? There are also a few movies I see...
    If it's better to watch both 1999 HxH and 2011 HxH + the movies, in which order should I watch them? :p
    I have Akatsuki no Yona, Mirai Nikki and Rokka no Yuusha on my list already.
    About One Punch Man, is it pure fist fighting / martial art with a super muscle man ? Not a big fan of this... is that the case for one punch man?

    Pls LOL I nearly got baited with Boku no Pico the first time but then read the synopsis and... I was right to do so, always read synopsis before watching xDDD
    School Days is with girls but I dont like harem/boobs/hentai anime

    First, don't think martial arts, think superheroes. Superman, Batman, that sort of thing.

    Second, One Punch Man is a parody or deconstruction of the fighting/superhero genre. It intentionally takes apart superhero tropes and things like that. It is about as non-commercial and non-standard as you can possibly get due to its origins. I mean, let's be clear, the name and main character's costume is a riff off a Japanese children's book series about a dude with a bean pastry for a head.

    OPM is an elevated shitpost viral meme thing. OPM was originally a humour webcomic with fairly basic art. Then an actual professional manga artist became a fan, and contacted the webcomic creator asking if he could adapt OPM. And now, years on, it's gone from this weird Internet thing to an actual anime. But you see, this isn't something a big media company thought it would sell toys, this isn't something created to sell video games and make movies. And so it's really really different. Silly yet deeply intelligent and thoughtful.

    The protagonist of One Punch Man is a fucked up Superman. He's a caped hero, on some level he's a decent guy, on the other he's a weirdo with zero social skills and charisma. In OPM, Saitama is invincible. Unbeatable. The title is literal, he's so strong he can defeat anything - and does, when he eventually bothers - in one punch.

    As such, in OPM, fundamentally the combat and battles...kind of don't matter. 'cause you know Saitama can murder explode anything. That isn't the point. This is not a story about dramatic battles where the hero struggles against impossible odds. This is the story of a Superman...who no longer gives a fuck.

    EDIT: Actually, I should probably admit - I don't actually personally like OPM that much. I've only seen/read bits and pieces here and there. But it's a brilliant concept in principle and I think everyone should at least look into it and see what it's about, yeah?

    HxH '99 and '11 are the same story, no need to watch both. '11 is essentially a redone/remastered version. I didn't see much of the older one but I recommend '11. Haven't seen the movies yet. I just started season 5 of HxH which I think is close or around the 100 episode mark.

    I recently watched this. And I found it very interesting because the storyline is deep.
    The title of the anime movie is "Empire of Corpses".

    Let me know what's your feedback when you finish watching. :)

    It's actually a pretty good movie. Would've liked it better in series form but it has a nice take on the whole Sherlock & Holmes story. Or should I say, prequel? lol

    If by mature you mean hentai or retarded Ecchi/Harem with 80% boobs 15% girls 5% plot Im not interested :rofl:
    If not then go ahead
    PS: Since last post I watched Hunter x Hunter, Kateikyoushi Hitman Reborn!, OPM and currently just started Code Geass at episode 6 :)
    Loved the first two, liked OPM and for now enjoying CG a lot as well (would put em all between 8-10 rating)

    Dunno what to watch next when Im done with Code Geass, I still cant get myself to watch FMAB :( might switch to manga with plans to read HxH, Reborn!, BNHA and maybe Magi/Pandora Hearts, unless someone comes up with suggestion(s) that look interesting

    Watched DanMachi, not my favourite but was fine, annoying boob godess xD
    And yeah forgot I should watch Attack on Titans so Im gonna watch that and prob try Deadman Wonderland.
    Dropped Log Horizon a while back dont remember why so if I have time I guess I'll check it out again
    Im still not sure I'll like stuff like "Your lie in april" since it looks like pure romance/regular life...

    Thanks for the recommendations :p

    Yeah. I hope they make a series out of it or something but the anime movie is 2 years old. Still hoping tho. :)
    There's another Sherlock and Holmes anime tho. It's entitled "Vampire Holmes". I don't fancy the 3D graphics tho. Or it might just take getting a little used to like Ajin. lol

    Ajin has a good story but yeah as you said the 3D takes some getting used to, it makes it look cheap. If you got netflix (lets be honest who doesn't?) Check out Blame, same 3D type of animation but actually looks pretty good
