Yes, yes; it's the 2020s if I remember correctly. However, I guarantee that we won't have the technology necessary for viable VRMMORPGs by then; I wonder if I'll see it in my lifetime. Taking the short route and going to the SAO world seems like an easier solution.

I, on the other hand, did not like Another at all. I felt that the show was lacking in character development. After someone died instead of going "Oh no! What's his nuts is dead!" I'd go "What does that make, 5?"

I adore Another entirely. It's held an unwavering spot as my second favorite anime of all time since my first watch. I've since seen it repeatedly, largely through introducing friends to the show, and continue to discover more and more nuances and subtleties within the plot. The fact that it's a well-executed horror story alone wins it stars in my book, but the narrative style, coupled with its uncanny ability to deliberately mislead the viewer only to counter their generic expectations never ceases to entertain me.

I could go on for hours about Another; I love it.

Nope; you can tell by the red bikini and outrageous bust. Although, it is an extremely close match. However, the first time you see Shirley is in that exact bikini, on a lawn chair with Lucini.

1) Spice and Wolf

Tact and Wit—sorry, Spice and Wolf, is one-of-a-kind. The entire 24-episode series is founded solely on the art of conversation between two intelligent adults and the strategy involved in manipulating an economy. These two characteristics are excruciatingly rare in anime, but work together extremely well. I have yet to find a more entertaining pair than the main characters of Spice and Wolf, Kraft Lawrence, a merchant, and Holo, a human-form (and, occasionally, wolf-form) wolf goddess. Aptly named, Spice and Wolf depicts a well-paced story of camaraderie, romance, and economic hardship in a medieval world. The music choice is brilliant, characters are beautifully drawn, and, as you can imagine, the writing is impeccable.

However, the show's true magnum opus is Holo herself. At first glance, she's a young girl with ears and a tail—nothing new to anime. However, you'll quickly find that Holo, as a character, is a series of contradictions, each more entertaining to discover than the last. Naive, yet wise; childish, yet mature; bold, yet reserved; seductive, yet modest; honest, but manipulative; and, most importantly, rigid, yet fragile. Holo is the most colorful character I've yet to come across, and compliments her travelling companion perfectly. Aptly named, the pair of Spice and Wolf is an inexhaustible source of sarcasm, friendly jabs, and banter so witty that you'll dread the possibility of seeing the two apart as though it were a plague.

Kudos to anyone who made it through my rambling. With any luck, you'll have gotten something out of it.

7) Toaru Kagaku no Railgun

Oddly enough, I enjoyed TKn Railgun, a spinoff series, more than its namesake, the core series TKn Index. The science-fiction premise of a city of Espers remains, but the main character is a side character from Index, Misaka, a teenage girl who's also one of the highest-ranked Espers in the city. The animation is fantastic, the main cast (a group of four girls) is varied and well-developed, and the show is simply well-written, in that every climactic moment feels climactic and satisfying.

6) Clannad/Clannad After Story

Surprised to see it come in at #6? I enjoyed the original Clannad, but fell in love with After Story, and for many of the reasons you'd expect. Never before had I been so emotionally involved with a cast, only to be repeatedly shattered, broke, and numbed at seeing the darkest sides of life unfold. Sure, it's little more than a glorified "Kill the Cutie" trope, but the animation is great, and the use of lighting and music is incomparable. I can only hope that everyone has also seen the extra/bonus/special episodes which drastically affect the plot.

5) Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo

I'm not too big on school anime, simply because the vast majority are wholly monochromatic. However, alongside Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Toradora, ane the like, SnPnK shines as a distinguished member of the genre. The most impressive aspect of the show, in my opinion, is it's use of scarcity—a tactic that is woefully underused in anime. A lack of drama adds value to that which does occur. Scarce anger makes even a raised voice something to remember; scarce tears make legitimate sadness genuinely impactful; and scarce happiness (particularly in the case of one character) leads to a moment of actual significance, rather than a coy smile and a cutaway.

Oh yeah, there's still more.

I'm not saying they're bad. They're both amazing. Its just he wouldn't call them his favorite if he didn't watch only popular shows. He's seen about like 10 Anime total, and refuses to watch anything more than 50 or so episodes.

It annoys me a little bit. I've recommended quite a few different anime to my friend who also seems to watch quite a bit of it. Steins;Gate, Shingeki no Kyojin, and Shinsekai Yori. He just said that they were shit the next day, and I don't recommend things unless I really enjoyed them. My 2 closest anime-watching friends (that guy included) actually reject things because of their names.
For example, Me: "I just started watching an anime called Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai. Gotta say, I'm really liking it so far."
One of them: "Chu- what? Why do you even watch this shit?"
I'm not exaggerating. That actually happened. I don't mind constructive criticism, but it's pretty annoying when the person criticising is the kind of person who skips looking at the books cover and judges a book by it's title.
#51 - astriatus (06/28/2013) [-]
Oh, absolutely. I recommend anime to friends all the time, and can understand the annoyance. My friends are as nerdy as I am, though, so my recommendations are scarcely met with disagreement. In fact, I spend more time discussing the positives of shows we've all seen than anything. However, I, too hate worthless and shallow criticism.

I approach anime as a unique form of media, and evaluate it as such. I look for choices in style, writing, animation, music, etc. and enjoy discussing those aspects. So, obviously, "it sucks because I can't pronounce it" would piss me off too.

Also, season 2 and movie confirmed for Chuunibyou. Hooray!

What anime do they watch? Do they only watched dubbed ones with english titles?
