So I just finished watching Code Geass (amazing) and need something new to watch/read.
Any recommendations?

    Off the top of my head. 

    Anime : Kara no Kyoukai, Fate/Zero (if you have played Fate/Stay Night), Ergo Proxy, Noein, Aldnoah Zero
    Manga: Full Metal Alchemist, Vinland Saga, Tsubasa Chronicles, Berserk

    Recent favorites (anime):

    Blue Exorcist
    Fate/Zero (Probably my fave in a while)
    Deadman Wonderland
    Kill La Kill

    The above are all action/supernatural. If you want something funny and lewd, though, Sgt. Frog is fucking hilarious.

    Some that have already been said, but my all time favourites, that I can think of atm:

    Ao No Exorcist (Blue Exorcist),
    Tokyo Ghoul, 
    Tokyo Ghoul:re, 
    The Breaker, 
    The Breaker: New Waves (this is the sequel to The Breaker. Both have amazing art, stories, and excellent fight scenes), 
    Soul Eater (The manga - the first half of the anime was good, the second half was a let down. The manga is amazing), 
    Deadman Wonderland, 
    Full Metal Alchemist (The manga. If you watch the anime, make sure you watch FMA: Brotherhood. It's closer to the manga than just the original FMA anime which went along its own direction), 
    Boku no Hero Academia (new manga, only 29 chapters in. Very cool though), 
    Yu Yu Hakusho (manga - it's amazing), 
    Hunter x Hunter (my favourite adventure anime/manga of all time. Much better than one piece imo), 
    Mushishi, 
    Kill la Kill, 
    The Gamer,
    Anohana (a short, 11 episode anime series. It's pretty sad but the animation is brilliant and the story is moving).

    I think you will like Black Lagoon given all the action anime you have seen. Also want to recommend cowboy bebop since it is one of my favorites but it is kinda episodic at times. Also love Outlaw Star.

    In reverse order: 2) The same folks that did F/Z (and Kara no Kyoukai) are doing F/SN. <3 Ufotable. 1) <3 Kara no Kyoukai. It's a touch absurd in ways, but it's freaking cinematically beautiful, and Shiki x Kokuto is my legit OTP (and a vague inspiration for Nim x Iocun). :c

    Even if I may sound nostalgic, I remember Tiger-man (the wrestler) and Ashita no Joe (the boxer) as one of the best written manga of all times.

    i mostly read manga, hadn't watched a single episode of anime since high school until a week ago, when i watched all of aldnoah zero that's come out on recommendation.  still not sure if i like it very much, much too similar to other things.  my favorite anime ever is probably honey & clover.

    manga/hua/hwa i read: kingdom, hajime no ippo, vagabond, bartender, a fair amount of the weekly shonen jump lineup, arslan senki, attack on titan, uq holder, fairy tail, tower of god, vagabond, berserk (saying that i read berserk is like saying that i read hunter x hunter - hiatus city), vinland saga, otoyomegatari.

    stuff that's complete, is very popular, and i can remember a good deal about but hasn't been mentioned yet (all manga, didn't watch the anime for these though they do exist for all of these): rurouni kenshin, hokuto no ken (lol), mahou sensei negima.
    And as he slept he dreamed a dream, and this was his dream.

    Amine like Code Geuss?

    I can't believe no one has suggested Death Note. It's like CG just without the mechs but with death gods.

    Also an amine I find to be similar was Stein's Gate, which is a time travel paradox type thing. Very well done. 
  • JovoloJovolo EnglandPosts: 3,148Member @@ - Legendary Achaean
    I found Death Note to be really inconsistent. The first half was outstanding, but I didn't like the second half so much. The final episode kind of came out of nowhere, too. Definitely worth watching, though!

    Bakemonogatari, Nekomonogatari, Nisemonogatari in that order.. Those are my all time favs. A lot of the stuff already mentioned are really good! There's really so much out there it's hard to narrow it down..
  • CresilCresil Posts: 37Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    If no one has said: Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan). Tokyo Ghoul and the second one (Re?). I also like Noragami.

    Jovolo and @Yae recommended, you should also look into Kubera, The Tower of God, and ReLIFE. First two are much more fantasy, while ReLIFE is closer to a slice-of-life school story with a minor fictional plot device.

    I also highly recommend reading Feng Sheng Ji and Ruler of the Land. Frankly, Feng Sheng Ji should be read just because of how well it looks (not so much for Ruler, although that just could of been bad scans of it I've seen)


    You know, that one thing at that one place, with that one person.

    Yea, that one!

    I didn't see an anime/manga general discussion thread, so I'll just put this here. I bought my first licensed manga!! I can hold the book and read the pages and enjoy it so much. I was actually looking for something else in the used bookstore that I got the manga on, but I was so happy I found it <3.

    I love Aria, at least the anime! It's so pretty and relaxing to watch.
