Prede's Anime

Still working on filling in all the anime I've seen. Not even close to done.

My favorite genre is drama, specifically character dramas, war dramas, crime dramas, police dramas (and mysteries of course) and the like. But I also enjoy the more "slice of life" type dramas and Romance as well. Another favorite genre of mine is Thriller/Suspense, although sadly there's not many anime or manga series in this genre. Other genres I really enjoy include: Horror, Sci-Fi (specifically "Cyberpunk" ), and the Surreal (including the more artsy stuff).

I have nothing against very well done Action, Mecha, Adventure, Comedy , Supernatural, Magical Girl, or Fantasy series though. But I do tend to watch less series from these genres then the others.

Seen all Rating Comment
5 Centimeters per Second (movie) Excellent A slow, beautiful, and thoughtful look at love from both a child and adults point of view.
Akira (movie) Good
Alien Nine (special) Very good Goes childish and cute, to dark, disturbing and gross in no time flat. A really interesting anime, with some really compelling characters. Very psychological.
Animation Runner Kuromi (OAV) Excellent A cute and funny anime series about how anime is made. A really amazing OVA that will have you rolling on the floor with laughter. Also it's not at all stupid, you learn something by watching this great anime. Must watch for fans of the comedy drama and otaku culture.
Animation Runner Kuromi 2 (OAV) Excellent Surprisingly this sequel captures everything that made the first OVA so good, and does it all over again. Another must watch for comedy fans.
Appleseed (movie) So-so A rather flawed effert, but I admire the attempt. Nothing amazing though. Vexille is much better.
Barefoot Gen (movie) Masterpiece A heartfelled, disturbing and horifying war movie, about how war effects everyone. It recalls the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Yeah not at all a fun movie. But truly gripping, emotional, and a must see. A perfect war drama if there ever was one.
Battle Skipper (OAV) Weak *bangs head against wall*
BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad (TV) Excellent A very realistic drama about the life of the members of this band just trying to get by. One of the stronger dramas out there by far.
Black Jack (OAV) Excellent A gripping and dramatic medical thriller. A one of a kind series. Must watch for drama fans.
Black Lagoon (TV) Very good Dark, disturbing, and action packed. Interesting characters, intense fight scenes, and very grounded. Inferior to the sequel series
Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage (TV) Excellent Incredbly fun, very dark and yet creepy at times. Amazing fight scenes, perfect aniamtion, great art style, and distubring. Much better then the first season.
Blood: The Last Vampire (movie) Excellent
Case Closed The Movie: The Time Bombed Skyscraper Good
Case Closed: The Fourteenth Target (movie) Very good
Castle in the Sky (movie) Good
Chibits (special) Worst ever This is worse then waterboarding
Chobits (TV) Worst ever God I hate CLAMP. This is a terrible, terrible show. Boring, offenseive, and downright stupid. Also naked chick for no reason.
Connected (OAV) Good Uh...it was a good music video, I liked the music and well animated...what more can I say?
Cowboy Bebop (TV) Excellent
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie Excellent
Cyber City Oedo 808 (OAV) Excellent Manga UK's dub is excellent. Gritty, unapologetic, dark, and kinda campy. Great action scenes, deeply flawed characetrs, and great concept. Also VAMPIRES IN SPACE!!!
Dead Leaves (OAV) Decent Off-the-wall crazy. A fun little show, that's never boring. However it felt kinda hallow. But it's worht a watch because it's unlike anything you've ever seen. I don't think I'll be rushing to re-watch this anytime soon however.
Death Note (live-action movie)
Death Note (TV) Masterpiece Simply put, the best suspense-thriller ever made. Deep, intellgent, exciting, unique, and involving. Top notch animation, amazing artwork, and beautiful soundtrack. How can you hate this?
Death Note Relight - Visions of a God (special) Excellent
Domain of Murder (OAV) Very good Mature, unique, and great mystery. A good detective drama, with great characters and good production values. Some small flaws in the plot, but they are forgivable.
Dominion Tank Police (OAV) A true classic. Smart, cool characters, sexy, and just pure fun. This is why I like older anime.
Dragon Ball Z (TV)
Dragon Half (OAV) Very good Funny, crazy, and hyper. ADV's dub is a keeper. A little pervy and shallow, but hey it made me laugh.
Ergo Proxy (TV) A dark, brooding, and gloomy series with some great twists along the way. Some episodes drag a little, but on the whole it's an excellent series with a lot to say. Plus R-el is hot.
Eureka Seven (TV) One of my favorite mecha series. A great coming of age story, that tells a very compelling story about war. PLus the mechas surf the sky! How can you hate it?
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (movie) Decent
Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (US CG movie)
FLCL (OAV) Perfect. The best thing human kind has ever and will ever create.
Gantz (TV) Gripping, dark, and interesting series. It's gory, sexed up, ultraviolent, sadistic and I love it! It's also thought provoking and nihilistic. Some huge pacing problems however. The ending is also a huge middle finger to the viewer.
Ghost in the Shell (movie)
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society (movie)
Grave of the Fireflies (movie) Poetic, depressing, and intelligent. One of the most important animated films ever made. Recalls the firebombing of Kobe...yeah not a fun time.
Gunslinger Girl (TV) Dark, disturbing, and yet beautiful. Tell the story of children turned into weapons for the italian government . Studies each and every character, and their relationships with their handlers perfectly. Beautiful landscapes, top of the line animation, and perfect dub/music. Emotional and thought provoking. Deconstructs the girls with guns genre. Very sad ending.
