I’m sure there are a bunch of people around here who would be able to help with this.
I have no real clue about anime and manga, but for some of the films and series I’ve seen, I have enjoyed them thoroughly. I’ve watched Ghost in the Shell, the movies and the 2nd gig series. I’ve also watched of course Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Akira… But that’s all really, and I honestly don’t know where to start when it comes to finding other stuff like it.
What I liked about all those that I’ve watched so far, is that they tend to have deeper spiritual and supernatural, as well as philosophical elements, and I would really like to watch more like it. I’m not really interested in anime for the sake of entertainment, but as an art form, so I’m looking for the good stuff, that will leave an impression on me like the movies and series I’ve watched so far have.
Oh, I’ve also watched Full Metal Alchemist the series. That was ok, but bordering perhaps a bit too much on the entertainment side. It still was very enjoyable of course.
So, any tips? Oh, and it doesn’t matter if it’s only in Japanese, as long as I can get subs.
