What is the last anime you watched and do you recommend it?

Well, the title explains it self.

The last anime I watched was the movie Tales from earthsea. It is a studio Ghibli movie and directed by Goro Miyazaki (as in 'son of ...'). I was surprised to read a lot of bad reviews of this movie but I think that is because people expect another Howl's moving castle when seeing the names 'Ghibli' and 'Miyazaki'. It wasn't filled with magic and bizar events, but nonetheless I really enjoyed it. The graphics were beautiful and it had a good story. It does leave some questions in the end, but apparantly those are all answered in the original storybooks that the anime is based on. So I recommend this movie, and I think that even when it turns out you don't really like it, you won't consider it a waste of time either.

The last anime I watched, well currently still watching, is called Mashiro-iro Symphony. It's a Harem-Romance anime with lots of drama, romance, and mixed feelings that have you always wondering what's going to happen next. This is one of those animes that will suck you in and make you want more.

I'm currently watching Mushishi. It's a 24-episode anime series about supernatural entities called mushi. All throughout the series, these mushis interfere with human activities so as to cause harm or problems. A mushishi like the protagonist, Ginko, comes by to solve the problem and dispels mushi to solve the problem. Ginko believes that mushis are not essentially bad, they are like creatures just wanting to survive and live but sometimes in the process, the price is causing inconvenience to humans.

If you want to see more from Studio Ghibli, I can recommend some titles. Smile

I have watched Kiki's delivery service and Spirited Away, besides Howl's moving castle. I can recommend both easily, as they're both very beautiful and very touching. I'm building corage to watch Grave of the fireflies. Everybody keeps saying that it is so sad... Sad

As for other good movies, I have watched recently The girl who leapt through time and Perfect Blue. The first one is about a girl who gains the ability to... Well... Leap through time. It's a very lighthearted movie. The second is very dark and dense. I recommend it because it' a classic.

As for regular anime, I can recommend a lot. Just tell me what you prefer. Very Happy

Anything by Studio Ghilbi and the late Satoshi Kon is amazing. I like... er what was his name again... ah yes! Makoto Shinkai! They all make amazing anime movies. Summer Wars was very nice as well, even if a bit cheesy.

To me any cartoons are cartoons but the last thing that did quailifty as Anime is Avatar the last airbender

I currently follow Bakuman, an anime about the struggling of two youngsters to create mangas. This anime explains "the backstages" of our favorite manga's creator, thus, I recommend this title. It's on the second season currently, so if you want to understand the story better, you can download/stream the first season (24 eps) beforehand.

I'm currently watching Bleach and recommend it
Cosmoslayer
Mirai Nikki interests me up until now. I should also recommend Persona 4, Bakuman and Kami No Puzzle.

I think the last anime I watched was Yamato Nadeshiko. I was not able to finish it but it had me laughing every time I watched it. It sure did. If you'd like to have a good laugh and to look on some beautifully-illustrated characters, watch it. hmmm... I just might watch it again. Very Happy

I watched Sword of the Stranger over the weekend. It wasn't particularly special, but it was pretty enjoyable, with a good story. Animation was decent quality... and I quite enjoyed how they chose to end it.

Check it out.

LOL, you are probably the last person who should be recommending an anime if that is the case.

anyways, I finished watching Monster a while ago, (haven't watched too many shows recently), but I do recommend it. you need some patience and a lot of time for it though.

I also loved Avatar, the last airbender anime serials, but I dont think they finished it, and I believe that witht he movie release of -The last airbender- they will.
It was quite enjoyable episodes, though.

Although I really enjoy watching Aang, I don't think Avatar was anime enough to call it an anime.

I haven't watched the series but the movie, yes and I loved it a lot unlike most people I know.
Well, for me though I only know that there is a Airbender series, I for one think that it shouldn't be tagged as an anime. I think it more as a cartoon series.
loremar
Just finished watching Usagi Drop. It was sooooooooo cute!

Though I still think Ushio from Clannad is a million times more cute but Rin was cute as well.

Space Dany nice story with great director

Avatar was an anime-wannabe. You can argue whether an animation made outside Japan, but stylized to be one can be called an anime (probably not). But since Avatar doesn't even succeed in that, there is no issue here I think.

Not that I have anything against Avatar, it's a very good cartoon!
cybersa
The Legend of Korra.
Good one.
Waiting for next season.

Punch Line
And it's very funny

I've watched, and recommend Steins;Gate as your next anime:

The setting is our modern days Japan. You are following the story of a self-proclaimed mad scientist saving the world by breaching the laws of physics via modified common household appliances. (It is way more interesting than it might look like from the description)

I liked this anime, the art is quite good. The characters are very lovable. The hum or is corny/geeky but good nonetheless.
Exploration of interesting time-travelling concepts, some philosophical concepts, also moral problems. Anime is still enjoyable by people out of their teens.
The fan-service (boobs=views) is still there but doesn't dominate the plot, so it's bearable. Almost no fighting involved.
All in all one of the better anime I've watched(And I've watched a lot, I admit)

So, yes, I would definitely recommend it. If you like thinking of crazy scientific concepts and paradoxes and like catching scientific and technical inside-jokes, like some more mature emotional catharsis as which is usually presented by other anime, and don't shy away from laughing like a baby. Most reviews rate this anime among the better ones.
Also there is a standalone movie which you can watch when you've done with the anime series, which consists only of 2 dozen episodes(Compared to the behemoths that are Naruto, One Piece and Bleach).

Great Teacher Onizuka is an anime about a retired gangster that becomes a high school teacher.

It depicts important coming of age stories. A bunch of I wish my teacher was like that scenes.
DivineTurtles
Try watching Shokugeki No Soma, it's known as "food porn" but eh, it's good.
I wish people made food like that. Very Happy

I binge watched Baccano! yesterday and I really recommend it.
Great storytelling.

I have been watching One Piece lately and am on episode 660 now.
It has great characters, awesome fighting scenes, nice music, emotional scenes and a great storyline.
If you are thinking that watching 700-odd episodes is too much of your time, I will say that it is worth the time spent. As a matter of fact, I too was not willing to give so much time to just one anime series but I saw it eventually and have absolutely no regrets.
