Top 25 Types of Anime You Want To See More Of!

gun-toting-homura-by-sakamoto-mineji.jpg

Anime fans quizzed on what type of anime they would like to see more of seem to be tired of the staple bishoujo anime formulas, instead craving more long-running originals boasting high production values – although they would say that, wouldn’t they?

The ranking:

1. Original anime (as opposed to adaptations)

2. Anime with more than 2 seasons

3. Emotional anime

4. Anime with gorgeous art

5. Continuations

6. Comedy/gag anime

7. Anime with all star seiyuu casts

8. Quality over quantity!

9. Heart-warming anime

10. Romance anime

11. Robot anime

12. SF anime

13. “Healing” anime

14. Adventure anime

15. Anime with appealing protagonists

16. Future anime

17. History anime

18. Freely distributed anime

19. Anime adapted from novels and light novels

20. Moe anime

21. Anime based on classic literature

22. War anime

23. Sports anime

24. Ghost & monster anime

25. Tsundere anime

“Ero” is also narrowly beaten by tsundere…

With most of the staples of the last decade evidently at saturation point, it seems what fans really think they want is more along the lines of Code Geass and Madoka – although unfortunately producing such hits is probably vastly more difficult and less financially rewarding than simply providing an endless succession of Type B schoolgirl anime, which it seems anime fans lap up irrespective of their vociferous complaints.

    I'd love a romantic anime that isn't typical shoujo garbage...

    To be honest Tsundere anime are abit annoying... They just use the "Tsundere" side of one character to overextend the anime.

    Saya No Uta? I like the VN, but I must say, I'm more interested in viewer response rather than the anime itself.

    Much tears and wailing to be had. Oh, yes.

    New season off Ghost in the Shell maybe?
    What about an Appleseed anime, i had heard some rumours about one being in the pipeline.
    Guest that wasn't true.

    I'm glad there is a second Last Exile season coming, hopefully that one will be good =]

    Looks wise it's rather disappointing.

    Story? Still too soon to tell, considering how the author likes his slow build ups.

    I can't believe I'm saying this but we don't need anymore ero. We need some anime with some damn solid plots for once. Anime creators are now thinking that flashing tits blinds us all to their shitty, cliche plots. The problem is that they have become SO cliche that it's impossible to ignore.

    I would actually like *more* ero, just not shitty ero. that means quality animation as well as original plot and characters (or at least not the same rehashed harem crap with the same obnoxious character types we've seen 1000 times already). have more "normal" body types, not just have the now overdone giant oppai on every other girl. no more bullshit censorship either. it really irks me when some conveniently placed object covers the goods. and probably as an addendum to better animation, fewer rehashed viewing angles. I actually don't want every pantsu or boob shot to be an ultra zoom in.

    and more lolis couldn't hurt either

    Myself? I would actually like more yandere. Even if we have another protagonist that I would like to punch repeatedly in the face like in School Days.

    Ero where the genitalia looks realistic would be nice, too. It kinda kills the mood if the point of the whole show is badly done, like a mecha anime with shitty mech designs.

    @Marine-RX179

    If I'm not mistaken, you're thinking of ecchi anime as being fanservicy. Anon 11:43 is correct in his descriptions of ero anime I believe. I could be wrong, but I've always understood that to be the distinction since 'ero' is short for 'erotic' and that definitely has sexual overtones.

    And I agree, personally I would love to see an ero anime that is given quality. One of the most sexy, romantic, and generally erotic moments in anime was the ending of Toradora when she's silently asking for one more kiss. I imagine that an actual sex scene with that level of sensuality and drowning in affection for one another could be a very poignant scene. Not that scene in particular, mind you, as far as I'm concerned that scene was perfect. I mean just attempting to give subtle motions and character to the sensuality of the moment to give the characters their own sense of the erotic AS characters.

    But I also must admit, sex in movies usually feels forced and stupid. When it exists for laughs and general arousal in anime, it's more funloving and there to make you smile, KNOWING they're pandering. In Watchmen I found myself wanting to slap the shit out of the director when there was the sex scene on the couch, which was tasteful, and then they save the people in the burning building, and then there's like a 5 minute scene devoted to his ugly ass thrusting. It was insulting to me that they wasted my time on a redundant and irrelevant scene.

    So it's a tough thing to decide where the context for sex belongs in any medium, and most especially how it's portrayed.

    "ero" anime means anime with lots of fanservices (i.e. pantyshots, nake girls etc)...what you are thinking is "hentai" anime.

    But yea...most people that watch KanojoXKanojoXKanojo watch it for Mafuyu, reactions to the other two girls are kinda "meh"...

    Just ask them to remake all the older animes like Berserk, Yu Yu Hakusho, or Hunter X Hunter in their original manga form. Blood, guts, and no fucking censoring. And hopefully they'll make an anime of Zetman.

    We need anime that avoids cliche and introduces totally original plot elements that nobody ever imagined before.

    Something completely and utterly original, and not in any way cliche.

    Something like... Russian Orthodox Christians conducting weaponized chemistry fueled by breast-feeding?

    If there was an anime like that, I'd most certainly watch it for the plot.

    One of the biggest things I've ever been upset about is how royally screwed up Hyakka Ryouran was.

    It had an ORIGINAL plot, it wasn't based off any manga, and it had such promise. The first 2 minutes of episode 1 really wowed me and I thought "man this is gonna be an awesome anime!"

    But then the next 286 minutes were just a bunch of harem crap and I cried nearly every episode at the massive loss of potential.

    I'm with ya on that one, but most people just laugh at us for wanting something more from Queen's Blade than tits. First they say "All anime that flashes tits at you is shallow!" Then we ask for some with more plot, story and character development and still get hated for it.

    It's like we men are not allowed to see perverted things while having an enjoyable plot running along side it.
