such as mecha, echie(?), etc..etc...??? Im confused as fuck. :noob:
ecchie - softcore hentai?
mecha - big robot things
shounen - ninjas / fighting ones (they have some set of plot characteristics, dont know what they are)
romance - romance
umm... yeah im probably mostly wrong, just wait for TUN to come.
there's romance, and there's everything else
but seriously, there are many many genres.
the ones you might not know are
ecchi - sexual in nature. e.g. lots of fanservice (showing off the girls' bodies), and perverted situations.
Ghibili - the japanese word for homosexuality. you don't want to look at any of these obviously.
shoujo - anime geared towards shoujo (young girls)
shoujo ai - anime about subtle themes of girl x girl love
shounen - anime geared towards shounen (young boys). so it doesn't exactly have to be ninjas or fighting like soymilk said, but that is a majority of it.
shounen ai - the opposite of shoujo ai
yaoi - overt male homosexuality
yuri - overt female homosexuality
ecchi sounds pretty hot.
don't be a faggot TUN, just because your narrow view on what is considered to be 'good' anime doesnt include these genres doesn't mean others wont enjoy it.. jeezus grow up would you?
ghibli is like japanese disney but WAY better.
i wouldnt call ecchi, "softcore hentai"
some series do it good, like Negima
I like Shota (people in love with young boys), especially straight shota (women in love with young boys)
i like the ones where grown men are in love with baby boys
Don't listen to TUN
there's a girl from japan that goes to my school named Yuri
don't make me post it
it's a common name for girls. it means lily. as for how it became used for lesbians in anime, read
well, i did say i was probably mostly wrong
I'v just stated getting into this as well.
What would anime crew recommend I watch?
Do you like action, romance, comedy, drama, horror, what?
A handful of examples. There's tons more.
Mecha - Gundam Seed
Romance / Shoujo - Aishiteruze Baby
Action / Shounen - Naruto, One Piece
Ecchi / Comedy - Ranma 1/2
Fantasy / Shounen - Fate Stay Night
Overall = Otaku No Video or Genshiken
Mecha = Eureka Seven or Macross Plus
Action = Black Lagoon!
Romance/Comedy = Urusei Yatsura or Kimagure Orange Road
Hentai = Bible Black or Discipline
maybe something like Bible Black or LA Blue Girl if you want something that you can get into easily.
also Night Shift Nurse is another good one to check out
I second this.
sweet shit guys. now i need to free up some hd space.
