So, I just watched my first anime...

Princess Jellyfish :D What I liked about Princess Jellyfish was how funny it was and how I could relate to the main character ^_^; It was kind of absurd and had this crossdresser who fell in love with this girl and there was a love triangle and and and it was just cute

It was good but there was only 11 episodes, it was discontinued...

I'm wondering if any of you could share what animes you've watched and summarize them/tell me their genres (comedy/dramatic/mainly romane/etc)? I want to get into watching more.

LOL at the first two responses.

I looked up Princesss Jellyfish and it sounds funny. If you like romantic, slice of life comedies like that then I'd reccomend:

Toradora: Centers around 5 interesting and kind of strange high school students. It is your typical slice of life/romantic comedy in some ways and you can already tell who's going to end up with who before even finishing the show, but I liked the weird characters in this one.

Paradise kiss: A dutiful and studious female student gets caught up with a group of amatuer fashion designers, eventually becoming their model, though acting snobbish towards them at first. Again, sounds a little typical, but the characters are great. Never actually finished this but it was good from what I had seen.

Eden of the East:Sort of slice of life with a supernatural element. While visiting The White House, Saki Morimi runs into a strange man who is completley naked, holding only a gun and a cellphone and has no memories of his past. The phone has 8.2 billion yen in it and allows him to do pretty much anything. Hilarity and action ensues. Honestly the ending to this anime sucked, but it wasn't that bad.

As for my personal reccomendations:

Code Geass, Mirai Nikki, Elfen Lied, Ranma 1/2 (all action/drama anime), and The melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (slice of life with a little supernatural). You can look up descriptions on Wikipedia, I'm no good at summaries. Have fun.

DBZ. Studio Ghibli. Manga Entertainment. Sunrise Entertainment. Good stuff. Ninja Scroll, Trigun, Street Fighter Alpha, Gundam, Vampire Hunter D, Big O (Showtime!), Yu Yu Hakusho, Steamboy, Rurouni Kenshin, Samurai X Trust and Betrayal, and so on and so forth.

Le Chevalier D'eon is my favorite anime. If you feel like watching a suspenseful, supernatural, mystery anime, I wholeheartedly recommend it. It's about a french spy whom is investigating the bizarre murders of young women, the investigation leads him on to greater intrigue. It's very loosely based on the historical figure D'eon de Beaumont.

others I recommend:

Kurau: Phantom Memory

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex & Second Gig

Last Exile

FLCL

Cowboy Bebop

Trigun

Escaflowne

Xam'd: Lost Memories

Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi

Azumanga Daioh

Don't listen to this heavily biased individual. Look at his sig and avatar. This guy basically preaches about the that damn horrible anime 24/7 Now, if you really want to watch one of the best anime shows around, go with Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. My old anime club always recommends anime virgins to watch it. And I personally recommend Eureka 7.

I was always a huge fan of Rurouni Kenshin. Samurai action, light philosophical musing with elements of comedy and romance mixed in. I recommend you only watch the first 62 episodes, as they follow the comic almost panel-for-panel. Beyond that, though, they strike off on their own, shred continuity and are pretty terrible all the way'round. There are also 2 prologue films subtitled Trust and Betrayal, and an epilogue film title Reflections. Reflections tells more of the real story after episode 62, but for the whole story(which is amazing) you'd have to read the comics. I thought Bleach was pretty good, but I lost interest after the second story arc was resolved.

Yes, I highly recommend the prequel. Why is Princess Jellyfish the first anime that you watched?

Sorry for this being the third reply in a row... Um, I saw a gif of it on tumblr and it looked interesting, so without hesitation I just youtubed it and was surprised by how much I liked it! Now I'm all picky and I keep watching the first few min of diff animes and I click away because I'm just comparing it to Princess Jellyfish, which I shouldn't do, so yeah I need some convincing of a new anime so I can just stick to it.

Currently watching Zetsuen No Tempest... it's pretty good so far. For a beginner Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood is a good anime to start if you want action plus solid secondary characters.

Hajime no ippo is my favorite anime. It's a sports series, boxing specifically, the fights are pretty cool but it isn't really focused on the actual boxing but on the main character growing so most of it is about him training and making friends and trying to get this girl to notice him. The music is awesome, the characters are good, most the fights aren't always bad guy vs. good guy but every character has their own story and reason for fighting which makes the matches more interesting. Also there isn't only a focus on the main character as the side characters get their time in the spotlight which is cool.

This is all based on the 76 episode first run, and the 2 ovas or movies. The manga is slow as fvck and the other anime has better animation but the music is worse and it's a weird section of story to start up again as the first run is a good ending point but the second run ends with you knowing there should be more but there is none and I don't know if they are making more.

edit: Also the humor is more jock humor, I think it's one of the more humorous animes I've seen.

Even though that is my all-time favorite, I wouldn't even suggest it because while it is charming the first episode alone would get someone weirded out. So if she doesn't like any form of ecchi she should just stay away. :P But on to ones haven't been mentioned: Nana - a anime about two girls with the same name randomly meet in a train and end up being roomies. Love, music, drama circles around it. This is one of my favorites as well. Also has a live action movie. Be warned, the series isn't completely finished and the manga goes on but it isn't finished either. anohana - a sad story about a group of friends and how they cope on a friend who died years ago Honey and Clover - a drama and sometimes sad about a group of college students trying to make it until they meet a girl

There is no dub for Toradora. NIS America only released it subtitled. You can watch it on Hulu you know. You have to sit through a few commercials but its high quality, legal, official subs. Steins;gate is on there too.
