Claymore, amazing with a dominant ladies cast, contains one of the most shocking scenes in anime history, definately top 10. Ill give you a Hint: The one with the faint smile. lol
Berserk 1992 anime or the Redux version available for free on youtube that blends the two together. When you finish go straight to the manga as the anime doesnt cover enough arcs as it should.
Tokyo Ghoul one of the most popular animes, you have probably seen it, if not you should, very original and crazy outlook at what could happen in an anime world. In a strange way i found myself to relating to alot of their problems. Weird
The best vampire anime since Vampire Hunter D, Hellsing combines horror, vamp lore with great action with an Anti Hero its main Hero lol. Great stuff.
If you grew up in the 90's you may have heard of Castlevania, an amazing Konami game about the Vampire Alucard who wants to help humanity from his father Dracula. My personal favourite game in the serious is Castlevania Lords of Shadow 1. Amazing story, gameplay and graphics.
Netflix adapted these series and they are great have a look. The creator is also a big fan of Berserk and has expressed interest in adapting it, that would be great.
X the anime. Dont be fooled by the title this is one of the most immersive anime's you will ever watch and completely encaptulates the atmosphere of most of the worlds mentality in the 90's where people though the world was coming to an end by the of the 1999. Its an amazing anime that will grip you from the beginning to end from its cutting edge action and story. You know the end is coming, but you dont know how it will happen and how it will end. Amazing.
Samurai Champloo, is a great anime and although its achieved alot of popularity some may have missed it. It has one of the best soundtracks ever on the anime, with late but never forgotten producer Nujabes, a great music maker along with force of nature and Fat Jon, whose songs feature through out the anime. It has an excellent pace, its playful but then develops into one of the most serious stories and high stakes fighting anime's you will ever see. But my favourite thing, is the loyalty and love the characters have for one another, even when they try to hide it. It gives me hope.
Samurai X the original OVA series, what can I say, its amazing and completely out of this world. One of the most badass quotes to ever come from a character in an anime. "Tell me your name boy". "Shinta", "A childs name, too soft for a swordsman, as of today, your name will be Kenshin...consider yourself fortunate" And with that one of the greatest anime journey begins. Enjoy... after your done go to the original anime its not as pretty but covers alot of plotholes.
Ninja Scroll! amazing if you havent watched it go watch it now! You done? great.
Great protaganist, great enemies, intriguing storyline and wonderful art, this movie is still ahead of its time. Waaaatch it!!!
Scrapped Princess- I watched mainly because a friend whos opinion i respected, recommended it, I did and its actually very good. Again its similar to X in the sense that its based around an impending doom and how to stop it, to find out how it unravels you will need to watch it because i wont spoil it. But i can tell you its not predictable.
Kurokuza, I havent come across many people who have heard of this anime. I cant really write too much about it without spoiling it, maybe you can? if so give a comment lol. I will leave you with this, ever heard of the term "bros before h*ES?" THIS IS THE MAIN PREMISE OF THIS ANIME LOL but on overdrive. Enjoy.
