Being an otaku I love finding new shows to watch, so there are some recommendations that I enjoyed a lot that I don't think many people have seen. Check them out, comment with your recommendations, and let me know if you've watched any of these!
★ RahXephon ★
If you took Evangelion and made Shinji give a crap. Giant mechs fighting giant monster mechs and a lot of musical mystery and weirdness. It's Bones what else do I need to say.
★ The Twelve Kingdoms (Juuni Kokuki) ★
Super interesting anime focused on political intrigue and world building, definitely ended before the creators were done with it but it's still worth watching.
★ Log Horizon ★
Kinda like Sword Art Online except the protagonist is a megane character and the focus of the show isn't on "beating" the game or returning to the real world, instead the characters are focused on living in the fantasy world they wound up in.
If you haven't seen or heard of SAO basically a bunch of people get trapped in a fantasy MMO.
★ The Mystic Archives Of Dantalian (Dantalian no Shoka) ★
★ Gosick ★
Tsundere Gothic Lolita Sherlock Holmes.
★ Space Battleship Yamato 2199 ★
If you liked Battlestar Galactica but wished there was more fighting alien bad guys and less interpersonal BS this is the anime you want. Space battles, intrigue, interesting characters, so cool.
