Sankaku Complex:"Even in Japan, many dismiss anime as being no more than cartoons for kids – Japanese anime fans looking to challenge this prejudice provide 25 anime titles they would unhesitatingly recommend to those poor souls who might otherwise languish under the terrible misconception that animation consists of nothing more than Disney flicks and Saturday morning cartoons…"

I have only heard of 3 or 4 of the anime of that list.

Obviously anime is not for kids, their are both adult and Chilterns anime. including pornographic anime called hentai like bible black

Instigator3147d ago

Anime just like any other media has something for every age range. I really find it ignorant when people write it off because of big eyes and bright colours.

I can't imagine a little kid sitting true an entire episode of Bakemonogatari, for example.

deep_fried_bum_cake3147d ago

What is bakemongatari like? Because I have it bookmarked as an anime to watch and I have absolutely no memory of even doing that, so it must have caught my eye somehow.

A harem-esque show about a dude with quasi-vampire powers trying to exorcise spirits from the girls in their respective narrative arch. Small fight scenes are sandwiched between long-winded monologues/ soliloquies about nothing and fan service.

Thanks, sounds interesting enough but I still can't figure out why I bookmarked it, must been recommended by someone.

Instigator3146d ago (Edited 3146d ago )

Like Lavalamp said, there's a lot of talking. It can be interesting, but a lot of people get bored with it. It also has a distinct art style that goes well with the psychological/supernatural theme.

You should note that if you don't like the first episode, the later ones won't change your mind.

Clannad is a great example of an adult anime and is one of the few animes I can recommend to anyone. Toradora though certainly isn't one i'd recommend for nay sayers.

Ranma13147d ago

ninja scroll is also great example so is bible black


MidnytRain3147d ago

Toradora! is my all-time favorite anime. Although I must say that Hanasaku Iroha's art is simply stunning. I wish I could find some mp4s to finish the series. Anyway, it's a shame Toradora! was so short, but that's better than those 500-episode series that don't seem to end.

I know about 20 animes on that list. Some of them good some of them bad.

Yugioh from the manga wasn't very kiddy, but yeah anime is like one of those types that can be G-A (A for Adults only).

I sometimes watch the kiddy ones for awhile, until I get bored because most of them don't keep me wanting to watch it.
