For those into anime and adult cartoons, do you have sugggestions?

Asked by Army0f0n3 (148points) February 2nd, 2010

Can you make suggestions for good, more graphic or violent anime? I’m out of ideas. I have yet to see Ghost in a Shell, but I have seen things like Vampire Hunter D and Elven Lied, so stuff like that is good.

I have a suggestion:

Watch Ghost in the Shell, and stop watching violent Japanese anime rape-porn.

Army0f0n3's avatar

I have seen Samurai X. It was quite good Blackberry.

And Monkey, Elven Lied was not rape porn, quit being stupid please. It was an amazing story about the evils of mankind and our treatment of those different from ourselves. Don’t buy into what other people say.

Takes ‘Blood’ as an example. But you needs to make your own original anime. It’s not about the anime but also the story. a not-very-good-anime with good story is much better than good anime with lame story.

Army0f0n3's avatar

True. But what is a good story to some is a horrible story to others. I mean come on, you know there are people out there that think Jerry Springer, Survivor, and Lost are good shows.

Ninja Scrolls, Akira, Afro Samurai, The Maxx, Ghost in the Shell,

Mariya+Holic is really good. It’s more funny than violent, but there should be enough blood and gore to satisfy you. :) It’s also very visually interesting.

Oh, and East of Eden.

@Army0f0n3 True. But you can only cares about the majority not the minority if you wants to produce it for public consumption. Unless if you wants to make it for certain group of people(minority).

Does it have to be violent?

Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal OVAs
Samurai Champloo (which really isn’t that violent)
Princess Mononoke

Other ‘adult’ anime with ‘themes’ or whatever:
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Cowboy Bebop
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
Paranoia Agent
Serial Experiments Lain
Oh, and Akira, but it’s a movie.

These are off the top of my head and by no means represent a good list of what you’re looking for, but you may enjoy them.

@efritz: You mean Eden of the East. :p

Ninja Scroll is awesome. Not much of an anime fan otherwise, there’s most likely better stuff out there. But yeah, soaring ninjas and rains of blood; own.

Monster is a killer anime. It keeps you on the edge of the seat. Lots of blood an gore.
Its a bit dark and its usually not what I like but the story telling was laid out extremely well with a lot of twists.

Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal OVAs (Seen it, IT WAS AMAZING)
Samurai Champloo (which really isn’t that violent) (Didn’t think it was that great =/ )
Princess Mononoke (Love it)

Other ‘adult’ anime with ‘themes’ or whatever:
Neon Genesis Evangelion (Seen it, was good. The whole “Lost in shinji’s mind thing confused me XD )
Cowboy Bebop
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
Paranoia Agent
FLCL (hated it TBH)
Serial Experiments Lain

Ill look into the others, Thank you.

Welcome to the NHK – generally a feel good anime, by the time you finish. series.

Serial Experiments Lain – an anime that requires multiple viewings to fully understand. it’s that deep. series

Paprika – to spark your interest in dreams and an overall trippy anime movie.

Gurren Laggan – teaches you to become a man with mechs and cute chicks. series.

Princess Monoke Hime – a must. you will love yourself and the world so much more. movie.

Sprited Away – use this to find your true child and whatnot… i forget the theme… i should rewatch it. movie.

Evangelion – unique depressing mindfuck sad story. series.

Army0f0n3's avatar

@dr34m3r Princess Monoke Hime?

El_Cadejo's avatar

Elfen lied was fuckin amazing

If you’re going to watch the hellsing anime, i highly suggest you go for the OVA series and not the original series that was put out. The original was good, but doesnt stick to the manga much after episode 7 or so i believe and then just gets blahhh. The ova’s on the other hand are bad ass.

i know its not anime, but if you havent read it already, i HIGHLY suggest you read the battle royale mangas. This will fill your thirst for violence whilst delivering an amazing story. :)

dr34m3r's avatar

@Army0f0n3 its about some guy who fights a demon, but then gets infected. he is then sent on a journey to heal.

the theme is basically industry destroys nature and pollution is bad.

good movie. highly reccomend

efritz's avatar

Army0f0n3's avatar
