    Youve forgoten "planet der dinosaurier" as a german anime nerd you simply have to know that. Nostalgic tears, a lot.

    For laughter, watch school rumble.
    For slaughter, Elfen Lied.

    And for some unknown reason i am a big fan of inuyasha. The movies are great.

    I'm following My Hero Academia at the moment. I think I heard the next Attack on Titan is coming soon. And I'll watch the last part of Digimon Tri sometime.

    Phew, I was waiting for someone to mention Samurai Champloo. Sunichiro really is the master of this kind of short form fusion stuff for me. Anyone seen Space Dandy yet?

    I have also enjoyed most Studio Ghibli stuff, although I've not seen Tales from Earthsea which I suspect is considered the be their most ill-judged work. I used to think I'd enjoy anything with music by Joe Hisaishi, but I was probably not in the right mood when I saw Ponyo, and didn't click with The Wind Rises at all really. But the Tale of Princess Kaguya was glorious, and When Marnie was There was a straightfoward yet charming return to form. Anyone seen the Studio Ponoc film yet, Mary and the Witch's Flower? That studio's made up of a number of animators and storyboard writers from Ghibli who've left as the work at that studio, as it's being ramped down.

    The last I liked: Aggretsuko. really good although the art and animation are simple, it is the story of an office lady who sings death metal at the karaoke to release the steam from her horrible work days.

    I also enjoyed Dagashi Kashi, a slightly over the top anime about an old style rural town's sweets shop.

    Among the classics, I really love Samurai Champloo, and the Animatrix. And Golden Boy is a guilty pleasure of mine as well :D
    One anime that a lot of people like and that I couldn't enjoy even though I tried hard was Excel Saga. The only part I really like about it are the ending credits with the dog's song.

    I've watched most of which been mentioned here, obviously some of the classics I enjoy and they should be watched, but there have been some newer ones I've been watching and enjoying like Golden Kamuy. Stein;Gate, now with another season. The 2012 Yamato/Star Blazers reboot stands well on it's own and does justice to the original. A Certain Magical Index / A Certian Scientific Railgun spin off was fairly good even though I didn't expect much out of it when I first got into it.

    I don't really have any other friends that are into Anime, so I just blindly get into a series and make my own opinions on them. Have to say I've seen a lot of garbage, however there are some gems in there.

    I have been watching anime for around 25 years. And I can recommend like 4 or 5 series.
