What anime should I purchase?

I'm going to have the opportunity to pick up more anime than usual a little later this month, and I thought I would turn to you guys for some help.  August 19th is my birthday, and I plan on asking for anime as much as possible! There are a few series/movies that I know I want, but I'm always open to new ideas as well.  That's where you guys come in!

Do you have any suggestions for anime that you consider must-see?  It can be movies or series, it doesn't matter to me.  Obviously I'm looking more for self-contained series in box sets or something like that.  I can't exactly ask for Lupin the Third or Bleach!  I'm not sure anyone likes me enough to buy me that much anime, nor should they!

Leave a comment here, or on the Twitter account or even my email to let me know what you recommend.  I'm trusting you guys with this one!


  1. Hey RMC! This is my first post on AYW, so I hope I don't let you down. From what I can gather, you already seem to own so many, but perhaps Grave of the Fireflies? Also anything else Miyuzaki/Ghibli that you may not already own.
    Besides Miyuzaki/Ghibli, I personally own FLCL, Cowboy Bebop, and Neon Genesis Evangelion, but I think you own all of those already :(.

    P.S. I wish you a very awesome birthday!

  2. That's a point... Have you listed anywhere what anime you already own? Apart from that video you posted, but not all titles are easily visible.Apart from the ones I just tweeted, Gurren Lagann is interesting and the Appleseed movie is brilliant (first one; careful not to get the second).

  3. Angel Beats
    High School of the dead
    Baka and test
    The Count of Monte Cristo < Really Cheap on Amazon

    Clannad and Clannad The After Story.

  4. Like the others said, I am not sure what you have, so I can offer these suggestions if you haven't owned them. Baccano, Eden of the East, School Rumble, Full Metal Panic, Oh Edo Rocket, Shakugan no Shana, and Genshiken would be my suggestions based on what you have expressed interest in on this site.

  5. I recommend Soul Eater, Highschool of the Dead, Supernatural: The Anime Series, and Trigun.

  6. Sorry if you already have these in your collection but here my suggestions.

    Higurashi When they cry, D.Gray Man, Clannad.

  7. You really need a My Anime List account :P

    But anyway yeah just some random 4 off the top of my head, High School of the Dead, Clannad, Afro Samurai, and Samurai Champloo.

  8. What to recommend to the guy who has everything...
