I was really excited about anime a year ago but that excitement seems to have ebbed. The last anime I got all the way through was Eva, and that was quite awhile ago. After that I started Serial Experiments Lain but my computer's fan died before I got all the way through it and by the time I got a new one I'd lost the interest the series built in me during the time I watched it. I know I'd love it but I don't know if I'll actually enjoy watching the rest of it now. Awhile after that I read a few manga series and they were enjoyable but they didn't do much to arouse serious interest in reading a lot of others.

It's like that with a lot of things for some reason, there are a lot of books I own I haven't gotten through simply because I stopped halfway through them to read something else or lost interest, and a lot of them are ones I know I'd like. I'm not sure what anime to watch, because the ones that sound really appealing are ones I usually get halfway through the first episode of and then either get bored or feel obligated to get through, which paradoxically kills my desire to watch the rest.

Are there many anime series which are interesting enough to grip you from the beginning? If so I'd appreciate hearing what they are.

I think the last thing I watched completely through was Texhnolyze.

I read way too much manga, but I can never really stick to anime. I just gave up on Kill La Kill a few weeks ago, and K-ON about a month before.

Oh, wait. I finished a comedy series called Senyuu, probably because each episode is about five minutes long. I'm trying to find more tiny anime now.
I'm also watching something called Selector Infected WIXOSS etc. etc. Long Title, but I'm getting the same "I don't want to finish this" vibe.
Anime doesn't have as much payoff for me. It takes too long for things to happen, and when they do, they're so stereotyped and trite.

So, um. Senyuu, Texhnolyze, that's about all I've seen recently.
Fast-paced comedy and glacial depression, take your pick. Since you presumably enjoyed what you watched of Lain, I suggest Texhnolyze.

Serial Experiments Lain was amazing. I bought the limited edition lunchbox DVD set and the wall scroll and everything.

If you'r into surreal, heart tearing, beautiful and weird stuff watch Kaiba

I marathon once a year Kanon and Air, beside that I'm more of a manga guy. Another one I liked is Lodoss, mostly for the nostalgia factor (dungeon master reporting in).

Why does literally every short anime besides one have to be comedy and/or slice of life? Can't they make like a horror/sci fi slice of life or something?



Plenty of horror slice of life - lives get sliced all ove the place.

There aren't too many good full length anime of either genre to begin with anyway. I'd guess that it'd be especially hard to make a 5 minute one.

yuasa is my favorite director for sure. If theres one thing I can say to help out people in OPs position, Id say look for the really creative stuff like this. Thats hard to explain what constitutes "creativity" but really, anime is best in its hidden gems. The kind of stuff that you hear of on a small imageboard by pure fucking chance and decide to look at it.

The same went for ultra heaven.


Oh damn, thank you, anon.

>>784 Probably you should try Mushishi, Kinos Journey or Monster, if you search for Animes that are not so stereotyped
