suggested anime

ilbran  asked:

Helloo~ I want to get my cousin into kamen rider, and I'm thinking of using Fourze since its the most shounen anime esque. Any other/better recommendations?

I can think of almost no better place to start than Kamen Rider Fourze!  That’s such a good choice to introduce someone to the franchise, especially if they are coming from anime fandom.  It’s got your high school hijinx, the concept of defeating your enemies and making them your friends we see in shows like Dragon Ball Z and it has that sense of increasing power levels and bigger threats without ever getting truly ridiculous and out of hand.  That’s a great starting point!

Another good suggestion for someone coming from an anime background might even be the current series, Kamen Rider Ex-Aid.  Especially if that person is a gamer or like video games, they could get into the idea of using video games to transform and fight evil manifestations of game characters who have invaded the real world. It is another show with a great cast of characters, a hero who makes some of his enemies into friends and moments of great humor as well as shocking plot twists.

Plus, the head writer is the one who previous wrote the excellent Lupin III Series IV so he’s got a head for anime style writing and characters.

Sketching out the son—because I’ve suddenly gone into a teenie, tiny art block, but we’ll see how long it lasts. Drawing Prompto usually helps get me out of that rut, but sometimes he doesn’t…Maybe I need to change the pace a bit—watch some good ol’ anime or something LOL Oh well, hope you like the sketches tho! Might add color to them later!

-The Most Interesting Stories Aren’t Always Action-

Here​ ​is​ ​a​ ​list​ ​of​ ​a​ ​few​ ​of​ ​my​ ​favorite​ ​engaging​ ​stories​ ​with​ ​a​ ​little​ ​less​ ​action.


Shouwa​ ​Genroku​ ​Rakugo​ ​Shinju​​ ​​-Drama- Shouwa​ ​Genroku​ ​Rakugo​ ​Shinju​ ​keeps​ ​me​ ​so​ ​invested​ ​in​ ​the​ ​story​ ​at​ ​all​ ​time,​ ​with​ ​loveable characters,​ ​just​ ​enough​ ​drama,​ ​great​ ​music,​ ​and​ ​well​ ​directed​ ​scenes,​ ​it​ ​proves​ ​it​ ​doesn’t​ ​take an​ ​action​ ​packed​ ​fight​ ​to​ ​make​ ​your​ ​heart​ ​race.


Sakamichi No Apollon -Drama-
Maybe my opinion is slightly biased because of my love for jazz, but the way sakamichi no apollon explores romance, music, and the everyday drama and lives of these characters, had me hooked from episode one.


Beast Player Erin -Fantasy-
Now technically there is a bit of action in this series. BUT I would argue that the majority of the series is a coming of age/political story, with love both familial and romantic, and a touching story about the relationship between a girl and a magical beast, i’d say it’s worth a watch.


Mushi-shi -Fantasy-
Mushi-shi is a great story for those who enjoy the feeling of exploring in a world of fantasy. As it follows a man wandering the world following rumors of possible mushi, and helping others, you’ll find yourself sucked deep into a well built fantasy world with background music that you only WISH you had IRL.


Ristorante Paradiso -Romance-
This one is a little different from most others on this list, the story revolves around a woman off to find her mother and the man she left to marry. She finds herself uprooting into a new life working in the strange restaurant her mother and secret stepfather run, making friends, and falling in love, all the while no one knows she’s even her daughter.


House Of Five Leaves -historical drama-
This show has great characters and unique art and atmosphere that set it apart from other shows instantly. And if you’ve ever wondered “what would a show about samurai be like without all the actiony fights all the time?” this show answers that question.


Sora No Woto -Military-
Though it’s a military show, it rarely ever has all that much action. The show IMO focuses a lot on themes of hope in times of war, showing how it affects the people involved. It also focuses a lot on characters overcoming their problems and building relationships with one another in a kind of bittersweet way.


Hozuki no reitetsu -Comedy-
It felt to me like a good idea to throw in a nice comedy at the end of a list with so many bittersweet titles. Hoozuki focuses on “life” and Business in hell, with a dark and sometimes dry adult sense of humor, in a strange slice of life setting i found this show to be an enjoyable and a relaxing watch.

a rant, aka “why everyone should watch ohshc”

my favorite thing about ouran is the complete lack of heterosexuality in the main cast, like

  • the main character is literally an asexual (and possibly agender) crossdresser raised by a flirtatious transvestite dadmom and everybody just goes with it, like no one ever gives her a hard time about it (except for tamaki but we later found out that he only tries to remind her that she’s a girl because he’s genuinely worried about her) or tries to tell her she needs to change. 
  • and as for the host club members, most if not all of them seem to be pretty laid back and flexible when it comes to sexuality (tamaki definitely was into haruhi even when he thought she was a guy, the twins act gay af half the time, kyoya and tamaki have that weird “mommy and daddy” thing, ect.). 
  • there’s an entire school full of singing lesbians.
  •  gender roles apparently don’t apply either; haruhi is tough and mature and independent and never feels like a damsel in distress.
  • did i mention the transvestite dadmom who NOT ONLY works to support his/her daughter and rocks at being a single parent, but is respected and accepted by haruhi’s friends.
  • that one story arch where kasanoda had a crush on haruhi but thought she was a guy and he just accepted it like “ok i guess i like guys now that’s cool”
  • (in the anime at least) haruhi never has a *sexy* bra and panties shot (she gets walked in on while changing a couple of times but it’s never a fanservice type thing), and remains independent and uninterested despite being surrounded by hot guys 24/7. because, you know, it’s possible to be just friends with someone even if they’re physically attractive. 
  • haruhi and hikaru go on a date and share a couple of romantic moments, but things don’t really work out and they both accept it and stay friends without either of them being bitter or resentful.
  • and none of this is even treated like a big deal? it’s all just accepted as the way things are? 
  •  basically this show is the best. end of story.

Thank you so much, and I’m sorry I answered this so late. I’m so happy you like my style, though I hope this is okay as my style is never quite the same and always changing as I tend to experiment until I find a style I love. And YES, Freed is an awesome character and I totally see him as a bartender! And I’m not exactly sure why but Lucy and Gajeel are one of my top BROTPs, so there’s that. :’) Anyways, I hope you like this, anon. Thank you for the ask! ^o^
