Do you have any anime recommendations?

This year I got into the habit of watching Natsume's Book of Friends before bed. I've found anime in general to be good for helping you unwide when you're otherwise entirely busy with work. Natsume seems to tick the right boxes for me in providing escapism with self-contained stories that make you think. Previously I've enjoyed Mushishi and Kino's Journey for the same reasons of relaxation.

Bartender - A series of vignettes centred around a hidden bar, occasional visiotors, and the famous cocktails that shaped their stories. Somehow manages to make lager look classy.

Watch yourself, as another lad rightfully pointed out in a /emo/ thread long since passed such things are the harbingers and hallmarks of the chantard. I doubted his wisdom at first but then the great /britfeel/ invasion happened and his drawing of correlation was indisputable. Never again.

Wasn't the Britfeel invasion because 4chan went down? I can't see the /r9k/ bothering us again after last time.

Anyway, on topic, I like Kiki's Delivery Service and that's about it.

That’s a little like saying the First World War happened and they fought for 4 years, because Duke Ferdinand got shot.

They came here because they thought this was a safe place, It wouldn't have even register as a choice if they hadn't scoped the place out previously and decided they liked it, we aren't that high up on the list of placed you go to. We gave them quarter and they returned with their kin.

If they'd scoped the place out here you'd have thought they'd have known better than to make posts like "HEY LADS, REMEMBER WHEN FREDDOS WERE ONLY 10P? REMEMBER TOFFO BARS? LADS."

Thanks lad.

>Bartender

This takes make me back. I should really do another watch making the drinks as I go.

iirc the Britfeel we had were offshoots who wanted to find a new home but ended up going to 8chan. For whatever reason I was awake when they were doing this and told them to fuck off.

>Anyway, on topic, I like Kiki's Delivery Service and that's about it.

I'd recommend checking out some of the other stuff like pic. There's a few gems in anime if you look for them.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is good if you like over the top action and "cool" characters. It's the pinnacle of shounen anime.

I've been trying to get myself into anime, I was always put off by the horrific people who used it as a substitute for a personality in school, but I like japanese shite and I like comics and that so I should probably like this too.

I really like Cowboy Bebop, but I have a soft spot for anything space related. I'll watch the Ghibli stuff over the weekend, but if anyone has other sci-fi-ish recommendations I'll take them.

It's the same reason I keep it a secret irl aside from people I'm very close to. You can't openly tell someone that you enjoyed an anime without all the baggage that comes with it because most anime is pretty bad and aimed at children. Although saying that I did enjoy K-On

>if anyone has other sci-fi-ish recommendations I'll take them.

I'd start with either:

1. Planetes for hard sci-fi about the near future of space and how fucked it is for the little guy. JAXA even provided technical advice on this.
2. Legend of Galactic Heroes if you want a space opera that touches on political theory.

I try to avoid anything with mecha in it so this is what comes to mind for me.

It's short, but it's got a really comfy early 90s vibe that reminds me of getting up early to watch TV and go on the playstation when I was a lad.

If anyone has recommendations of things with a similar feeling to them I'll be most grateful.

The only Space one I can think of right now is "Tytania", but it's actually really disappointing, considering it's by the Legend of Galactic Heroes author.

On the other hand, "Real Drive / RD Sennou Chousashitsu" (by the same writer as Ghost in the Shell) takes a laid-back approach to Sci-Fi. It's set on an artificial island somewhere in the South Pacific, using a fully connected AR-based society which makes use of saltwater as a data storage medium. Some residents of the island have found ways to hack into this "Meta-Real" system for the purposes of pleasure-seeking and crime, and so an investigation team uses a "diver" to catch them like something out of The Lawnmower Man.
Many of the stories are self-contained but slot into an overarching narrative of social quandaries and plutocratic backstabbing. There's a lot of stuff there that would appeal to someone who is into the kind of stories that fetaured in 2000AD, for example.

Made in Abyss has a nice episodic story telling style. It's a bit like Kino's Journey in that there's "mild peril" in it, but it has that feeling of exploration that seems to only scratch the surface of the world it lives in.

I should say that another anime that I'm watching right now is Re:Zero. It does have cliché elements being an anime about a NEET transported into a fantasy world but there's an interesting idea around how fucked up it would be to live with a particular superpower.

Spoiler for what that is ruins episode 1 but I assume you will have watched it already if the above were enough: When he dies he returns to a save point. Every 3-4 episodes is him facing off against some challenge and mostly having to watch all his friends die over and over until he gets it right.

I really enjoyed this. I'd say its really more a political thriller in !NOTJapan if it never formed a unitary state because you have elements that fit strongly with the past and present of Japanese monarchy and an underlying allegory to the Japanese succession debate.
