SOUL EATER !!! It's great and totally amazing. I don't know you but it's like a anime that everybody likes xD

KUROKO NO BASKET. You definitely need to watch this if you haven't already. Although I'm not sure if it's your taste or not. But I didn't think I would like it and hey. I'm obsessed now.

Um... Soul Eater?

lol I don't really know you too well but I think it's great. :D

LoK is also really good :)

If you like Samurai Champloo you might also really like Cowboy Bebop. It's got that same mix of humor and style of fighting and is just really fun.

Legand of Korra is awesome! If you loved The Last Airbender then you love this :D
Tigress62 Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012
I don't really know what you're looking for or really what you watch already but if you end up liking LOK I think that you'll like DC's Young Justice. Both are brilliant at bringing in dark themes and a interesting, suspenseful plots. Also, I think that I would love you forever for drawing fanart from either. :) Enjoy LOK because it is a lot better than you think it will be (I was on the fence for a while but, it's worth it). :)

Although I don't watch anime all that often, I fully recommend Tora Dora. It's a pretty interesting and awesome(ly sweet) anime.
Manga-wise, I recommend everything from Godchild/Cain Saga and Vampire Knight, to Tail of the Moon and Faster Than a Kiss. Kaichou Wa Maid-Sama! (aka. Maid-Sama) is very interesting too. :)
I'm only naming a few right now, mostly because I read a ton of manga, and those are some of the ones that pop off the top of my head. :D

But, if you're interesting in reading books too, I always recommend City Of Bones, the first book of 6 from the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare; (there's 5 out, and the 6th/last one comes out in 2014).
The Summoning (1st of 3 in the Darkest Powers Trilogy) is also very good. All three of these are out at this time. :)

I've been deliberately putting off watching Korra. I sat down and watch the last air bender movie (yes that live action movie that was no where near as bad as people made it out to be) something like a year ago. that was the first time I saw anything Avatar (in motion). It piqued my curiosity enough that I found the series on netflix and marathoned the entire thing in more or less one sitting. then watched it again a month later. in the same way.

as such I'm wanting to wait until Kora is complete before sitting down to watch it.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica i'm juwst watching the series it's really good and its only at ep 2. short anime 12-13 eps..
GraphicManga Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Soooo many comments, so I have no idea if anyone has sugessted Darker Than Black or not. But it's a personal favorite of mine.. ^^
kat-Yes Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Legend of Korra ftw xD You won't regret watching the series ;) Although the old series is more amazing IMO :P
Have fun
Mimya Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmm.... since you're watching Samurai Champloo, i recommend Black Lagoon or Last Exile the story is kind of slow in the beginning but it picks up and its a really good anime :)
Leorunner7889 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2012
flcl one of my favorites :3
Kami5885 Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012
outlaw star is pretty good
afro samurai is awesome XD
StickyLeaf Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Like most probably have suggested already, here is a list:

Cowboy Bebop - easily my favorite, same director as Samurai Champloo
FMA Brotherhood
Baccano! - the novels are good too
Ghost in the Shell
Sherlock BBC - Nonanime
cocoawolf29 Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't know if this is your type (If I had to guess I would say no), but I personally love Phineas and Ferb. You don't mind kid's shows, do you?
Ice-Beast Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012
if you wanna see a world a bit different try Mushishi :)
XxblackblossomxX Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
OMRAPTORJESUS you just reminded me of what I wanted to watch!
Foxwar-897 Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ah Samurai Champloo! :love: I still need to watch that show! xD (And the Legend of Korra..)
SalyutSddW Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012
LoK is great, but it's even better if you've watched the original series. As for other recommendations... I would say GoT but you already like that. I'm also a fan of, among others, Doctor Who, Tiger&Bunny, Speed Grapher, Baccano!, Mushishi, Hellsing (the OVA's, not the anime) and Trigun.
peachibear Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012
Definitely Korra! and Avatar the Last Airbender!
Novenari Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
OHHH, Legend of Korra, that is good, you'll like it I'm sure :D I'm not quite sure on what else I could recommend however... Someone else mentioned One Piece and Trigun, I'd second those. I think Rurouni Kenshin's awesome too, and would probably be something you could like. Maybe FMA Brotherhood, or the original, but Brotherhood gets more love by most. Seems I did have some ideas after all. :XD:
Seki-Moshu Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If you're looking for an interesting watch, there's always Deadman Wonderland, Fractale, and if you're looking for a good comedy there's Level E
Tenchi-del-Dante Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012
There was some series before Cowboy Bebop I needed to get into, but I don't think it followed the "Setting x Music theme" like later works
Soffydream Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012  Hobbyist
if you watch legend of korra, you should also watch the last airbender. i love both :D
AtticCreationz2 Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Hell yes watch Korra! It. Is. AWESOME. :eager:
Demoniacs Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If you love weird, romanitic funny as hell teenages

Watch School Rumble :3
WarriorNun Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Asterous! :D
Pipe-stream Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Like other people on here, it'd be great if you watch the original Avatar series before Legend of Korra! You'll see how Republic City came about and you'll understand the older characters more and you'll be introduced properly to the whole bending/magic concept :)
Larxiel-XV Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012  Student General Artist
Guilty crown?
one of my favorite animes of all time :)

(yesssssss, overloaaaaad ;w; )
ObsidianVelvet Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012
No wait, I just remembered that Fushigi Yuugi isn't in English on

So if you're not ok with that then here's this! ---> [link]

Enjoy ^.^
the-Modest-Godess Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I didn't like the legend of korra at first but it is actually very interesting toward the end. Samurai champloo is one of the best anime series I've ever seen!!!! I watched it 3 times :meow:
I think you would like "Cowboy Bebop" and "DN angel"
lady-leliel Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012  Student General Artist
Have you watched the original Avatar series yet? XD
Well so far all the anime you like I like, so I'd recommend.. Neon Genesis Evangelion (watch a bunch of kids all go insane, just 26 episodes and they've been condensed and re-made in AMAZING new movies :p) and Mushishi (super pretty, just one main character to remember, really original and interesting and another short series).
My mommy just bought me the Samurai Champloo box set, after having just a few episodes on random dvds, happiness >:3
Darth-Sparrowhawk Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Hm, suggestions?
The Wallflower (the animation's not so great, but the humour is awesome)
Wolf's Rain (uh, makes you cry)
Cowboy Bebop (as others have suggested)
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (I personally prefer to watch it in chronological order, but some people say watching it in the TV release order is better, makes it more intriguing. I also personally hate Haruhi's personality, but it's worth it for Kyon and I think Haruhi grows on you...eventually...or maybe never.)
Are You Alice? (Interesting take on Alice in Wonderland. First of all, the majority of the characters are male, including Alice. Veeery cute. And slightly creepy. I prefer the manga, but it's an anime too.)
Asagi-K-Kurosaki Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012  Professional Writer
You'll LOVE LOK :D As for other ideas, Pandora Hearts is good, also Psyren, you might also like Detective Conan if you haven't already tried it :)
ObsidianVelvet Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012
Big O an Fushigi Yuugi are old and cheesey but I think that's part of what make them soo great! Seriously, give them a try!

Find both (and much more) at
HatakeHinata Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012
Fuu X Jin!
X-itachisgirl-X Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012
Yes, you will absolutely LOVE LOK!!!!!
And I would give you ideas of anime to watch, but I have no idea what you like.......
Honguna Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012  Student Digital Artist
The Avatar world is really great. I suggest seeing the first series before moving to LOK. You'll have some time before the next season of LOK airs. I think LOK will be much more enjoyable after you watch ATLA (so you can rage and fan-girl and blah). Plus LOK is only meant to be a mini-series.
Aeylita-9 Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012
Just a mini series?? :iconshockplz:
Honguna Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012  Student Digital Artist
The Secret of Kells! Sorry, saw your avatar and just had to comment. Saw this movie just last week.
And yes sadness! I wish it was a full series and I'm hoping they'll make more than just two books.
Aeylita-9 Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2012
Secret of Kells is my all time favourite movie! \:D/ Hope you enjoyed it. ^_^
and yeah, I hope they make all three books, although I wonder what they will do. Maybe some catastrophe in each nation? *shrug*
At least we know book two is on the way :iconhappytearsplz:
Honguna Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I watched it since the artwork reminded me of The Thief and the Cobbler (you should check it out!).
So I looked up the wikipedia page for the Secret of Kells after watching the movie and it was apparently inspired by the Thief and the Cobbler!
I really do hope we get more books. New villian in each book apparently but I do want them to clear some things up about Amon like how he "took bending away" and such.
Aeylita-9 Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012
wasn't that explained in the last episode of book 1?
PassionateStar Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
If you fall in love with LOK I suggest watching the original series related to it, Avatar: the Last Airbender because that is all kinds of amazing (the animated series of the 21st century in my opinion) even if it's 3 seasons. Ask any fan and they will say 3 is not enough haha :D

Also Soul Eater is very awesome if you wanna watch something japanese, it's completely shounen and very funny~
RengokuAkashi Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hmm... Are you into distopian stuff? Because if you are, Ergo Proxy is pretty good so far.
MajinNeda Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012  Hobbyist
Sorry if anyone has already said this, but have you watched Avatar: The Last Airbender? If not, I HIGHLY recommend you watch that before Legend of Korra.

Other recommendations (excuse them if you've already watched them): Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (yes, both), and Soul Eater. Maybe Blood + (pronounced Blood Plus). I can't think of anything else right now. =P
Ariemea Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012
Well, to state a few.....Durarara, Darker than Black, Kuroshitsuji (read it, don't watch it), Baccano, hmm.....

And yes, Samurai Champloo is great.... definitely adult though! XD
