    Default Recommend me an anime, Sher Khan! (Version 2)

    The old thread has passed the 10,000 post limit, so here is the new one.

    So let's discuss. Take some time and check out something new, expand your horizons, and all that jazz.




    Hi. I'm Sher Khan. I've seen a lot of anime, read a lot of manga, and I believe I can help you guys with questions and concerns about anime and manga. To put it simply, most of it is crap. That's just how everything is nowadays, from Hollywood to Bollywood. You have 10% of awesome mixed in and hidden within 90% of utter crap.

    And, with a medium as diverse as Japanese animation, you might be overwhelmed to find just what is 'good' and 'must watch.' And instead of regurgitating the same names over and over, you may just want to find a show that speaks to you. A show that you will enjoy depending on what you want from it.


    This is where I come in. I'm your intermediary, your go-to guy. If you have no idea where to begin, let's discuss where to begin. If you're not well caught up with the newer shows out there, and the extent of your knowledge is whatever they aired on Cartoon Network when you were younger, I'm here to help.

    And if you just don't care for anime in general, but are open enough to see a show that you might actually like, let's get talking.


    This will be a personal, hands-on approach, rather than us listing what we thought were the greatest anime shows ever. Because that never gets anything done, does it?

    The only thread is more than 7 years old anyway.

    By the way when the new Robot Girls Z come out? I heard it is postponed.

    This is technically like v3, since there was some similar attempt months ago but it crashed and burned quietly.

    I hope we get the new Lupin III before then
    Also, shouldn't this thread just be called the Anime Thread?

    While I could certainly have changed the title, I chose to keep it out of respect for Sher Khan who managed to create a thread that remained relevant for 7.5 years.

    Finished watching Fullmetal Alchemist and I couldn't help noticing that they didn't solve some plot points. So where do they continue with this, is it Brotherhood or that movie (or never)?
    Otherwise what was the point of bringing that stuff up in like the last 3 episodes if they weren't going to do anything with that.

    Brotherhood is tge faithful adaptation to the manga. You want a resolved story? Watch Conquest of Shambala

    ​Watch Brotherhood. The story is much better. The atmosphere of the original is better than Brotherhood though.

    If someone were to watch both FMA and FMA:BH, which one should come first?

    I am watching Brotherhood right now. The first 13 episodes are basically the first half or third of the old show. From there it branches out into its own story.
    That said you might want to watch FMA first as it takes longer to get into those points and they take their time which does wonders for the subject matter and the show. However after that you should watch Brotherhood to compare and see how the story changes.

    Thanks Lord Oda. I suppose they should be watched one after the other for the best comparison.

    I'll just say that so far with what I have seen Fullmetal Alchemist gives the best portrayal, drama and emotional scenes but as far as overall alchemy battles and well connected story elements Brotherhood might be the winner. Some things from FMA I wish they would have kept though but as the story and characters are being unraveled I think Brotherhood is better.
