Well, what are your interests? Action, romance, fantasy.. do you like dragons, pirates, space explorers?
I mean, I'm pretty selective with just about anything that it has to catch my interest.

As far as short.. Fullmetal Alchemist and DN Angel are both kinda shorter (especially when compared to Naruto).

Start with Blood C, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Hellsing, Another or Mirai Nikki...
that is if you want to see the most fucked up side of anime (not in the sexual way)

Here's a list by basic genre of some excellent anime series that I recommend. Try doing a little research to see what interests you from this list first because my organisation of them into genres isn't particularily well-done and they really vary within said genres.
Action:
- Soul Eater (51 episodes)
- Noragami (12 ep)
- Gundam Build Fighters (25 ep)
- Blue Excorcist (25 ep)
Thriller-y stuff:
- Steins;Gate (25 ep)
- Death Note (37 ep)
Slice of life-ish or comedy:
- Bakuman (if the anime is anything like the manga, I've never seen it myself)
- Hetalia (52 ep but they're 5 or so minutes long and you really don't need to watch them in order)
- The Devil is a Part-Timer (13 ep)
- Ouran High School Host Club (26 ep)

ELFEN LIED ELFEN LIED ELFEN LIED <nvm that I did enjoy it alot altough it isnt the best anime, Still my number one.

But I suggest Durarara, Its just awesome and funny over all. Oh and afcourse Death Note and all that shizzle. And The Legend of Legendairy Heroe's. Its ending sucks so much. Its litterly the worst and it wants you to have never watched this anime. But - that its really awesome, I do recommend it even though its ending is just... *Shivers*. They arent the shortest of anime. But You will litterly enjoy every part of it. (- the ending of... you know what I meen.)

Goodluck watching anime!.

If you're into horror try Corpse Party Tortured Souls. I was having nightmares for days. They did a fantastic job on it.

Yu-gi-oh, Pokemon and Naruto are really not a good place ot start, considering they are over a hundred episodes long(Pokemon is like 800 and Naruto+Naruto Shippuden is about 900, dunno about Yu-gi-oh though).

Also Season 2 is already out, season 3 is coming 2016 (If you count the female titan arc as a seprate season, I think it counts).

its not

Post by Karasugaming on Sun Oct 04, 2015 8:10 pm

the female titan arc is not counted as season 2. just because it has a new introduction does not necessarily mean that its a new season. also the whole series of AOT that is out at the moment is classified as S1 S2 is about Levi and has nothing to do with the female titan arc. so as I said before S2 comes out 2016 and pokemon naruto and yugioh I know that they are all long anime but its a good series to get into im only suggesting not telling him and thats your opinion that they are not good.

Heh, you can always do what I do and pretend entire seasons don't exist when they don't meet my expectations. Naruto? Pfft- that ended after the chunin exams- and Yugioh- what are seasons 4 and 5?? ;p
ignore me I've very picky

Isn't pokémon a kids game and kids show? XD

I also suggest Kuroko no Basket if you are interested in sports anime.

Pokemon most definitely an anime however I take issue with your second point. Anime doesn't refer to the art style but the location in which it was made. Astro Boy is an anime, correct? Yet Avatar the Last Airbender is much closer in style to most anime. In fact, the deeper you go exploring in Japanese cartoons (anime), the more you find the art style differs from the "standard" shonen or shojo-type styles. Some examples that really change up the style are Ping Pong and Panty and Stocking (I've never actually watched either of those series though so don't hold me responsible for whatever is contained within them). So to recap, an anime is simply any animated cartoon to come out of Japan. Not Korea, not China, not America. Japan.

I have the answer to your problem.
I can't really recommend any anime if I don't know what you're looking for, so with this site you can search by genre, themes, ratings, et cetera.
So let's say I want to find "comedy NEET." It will show me every NEET comedy anime that they know of, like Welcome To The NHK and Eden Of The East! (Both are fantastic, but also rated MA, so don't watch them until you're seventeen, kiddos.)
