Himiko-Den/Legend of Himiko Give it a watch, so far to me it seems quite good.

Also, it's an older anime so no [trope]ConspicuousCG[/trope].

Bakemonogatari. Whatever it is that makes a good story, this has it. Lots of it.

There's quite a bit of text that's only visible for a fraction of a second, so if you want to read it you'll need to be ready. (You're not missing too much if you skip it.)

My only problem: the last episode isn't out yet and nobody knows when it will be.

It seems NisiOisiN (the author) also wrote Katanagatari, so I'm going to try watching that as well.

Katanagatari has been wonderful so far


And yeah, Bakemonogatari is great. Could've been a bit longer though.

It's fifteen episodes long, and we're still waiting for the last episode. I think you might have missed some.

Uhm, nah.. seen the 14 episodes that's out and it kind of saddens me that's it going to be over in just one more episode, plenty of characters with great depth that I wouldn't mind seeing more of tbh.

There are several more stories written, although there's no guarantee they will have animated adaptations.

Yeah those are the ones I'm hoping for.. I'm not having very high hopes for them ever being animated though. Which is somewhat of a pity.

On another note a new Darker Than Black OVA was recently released. Great stuff.

I have a habit of reading the subtitles and not watching the show.

Anyone who doesn't like Kaiji or Akagi is a humongous faggot and should kill themselves. Just saying.

Kaiji
Down on his luck bum gets wrangled into a life or death gambling scenario.

Akagi
Young mahjong protege psychologically torments opponents in the game. Eh gets man gan hands and doesn't afraid of anything.

Fucking watch them, I just... Fucking watch them.

So, I decided to look into Kaiji due to TAP's suggestion, and I have to say, it's really good.

First of all, the art style is quite striking, especially considering how subtle the differences typically are between anime. It feels almost refreshing to see such a distinctive style used in a serious anime for this first time in recent memory.

Second of all, the show does a surprisingly good job at invoking the same emotions in the viewer that the protagonist is feeling, which is something I can't even identify in another show off the top of my head. When Kaiji gets angry, the viewer feels angry. When Kaiji feels the suspense, the viewer feel the suspense. It's certainly different, but I think it works well.

Finally, the games in this show and the strategies the characters come up with are very well thought out. Usually in shows like these, I can think up more effective strategies and/or point out logic errors while watching it for the first time, despite that the characters typically have much more time to think and that they're often supposed to be ridiculously intelligent. In this case, however, I haven't been able to do either (so far), and the strategies they came up with caught me off guard more often then usual as well.


In short, even if you don't think you'd like this, I would still highly recommend this.

TRS: Just wait until you see Akagi too.

I'd dare say that it's far better than Kaiji, and that says a lot.
