Please recommend a good anime series- not ones wid gory violence or a boring story but one wid good action or a cute love story or both.
Here’s a nice mix of show for you to check out.
True Tears (slice of life/romance/drama)
True Tears revolves around a high school student named Shinichiro Nakagami. He lives with his mother, father, and fellow high school student Hiromi Yuasa who moved into his house after her father died. Her father had been a close friend of the family, so it was natural for Hiromi to come stay with the Nakagami family; one year has passed since she came to live in their home. Shinichiro has known Hiromi for years, and had always treasured her smile, but lately she acted coldly when at home and he cannot bring up the nerve to talk with her either. When she is at school, Hiromi is popular, always smiles, and is talented in sports, but Shinichiro knows she must be hiding things inside her. As the story goes on Shinichiro meets a strange girl named Noe Isurugi who wishes him misfortune after he teases her. After a bit of bad luck, he reconciles with Noe by crafting a chicken out of a tissue box and finds out from her that she “gave her tears away”.
Yukito Kunisaki is a showman traveling across Japan, continuing his late mother’s search for the “girl in the sky”. Yukito comes across a small seaside town where he tries to earn money by putting on a mysterious puppet show where he manipulates a doll magically without strings. Yukito meet three different girls in this town and as he spends more time with them he start to notice that they all have some kind of connection to the “girl in the sky”.
The Show holds true to the air theme as many stories, events, and feelings of the character deal with the sky, flying, or things that move through the air like bubbles. The show is very interesting and deep as every character has to deal with there own complicated relationships and emotional dilemmas. It’s a pretty good romance/drama
Fate Stay Night (Action/romance/fantasy)
the show is about the Holy Grail War which involves a series of battles among powerful sorcerers to fight for the possession of a relic that will grant one’s wishes, the Holy Grail. There are altogether seven “Masters” who can summon their respective “Servants” from different classes known as Saber, Archer, Rider, Berserker, Lancer, Caster and Assassin. These “Servants” have to hide their names in order not to reveal their weaknesses to the enemies because each one of the servants is an epic hero from earths past. The main character, Shirou Emiya, treat treats Saber just like any other woman and not like a servant which is something that she is not used too. Saber feels that she must fight without any care for what happens to herself, but Shirou, feels the exact opposite. He tries everything to keep her from getting hurt and often times ends up hurting himself in the process.
My-HIME starts out with the main character, Mai Tokiha, and her younger brother heading to Fuuka Academy after receiving a scholarship to attend school there. On the way there Mai becomes mixed up in a fight between two HIMEs, which are girls that can materialize weapons and creatures to fight. In the melee the ferry is literally split in half. As the fight continues Mai accidental get in between the fight and discovers that she also has powers and is HIME too.
The show has some of the best character development I’ve seen in a series; especially in a series with such a larger cast. The characters are quiet realistic as far as their reactions to the events around them. This is one of the things that really pulled me into the series. There’s plenty of fan service, great fight scenes, decent comedy, romance and drama drama drama (those who’ve seen this know what I mean). What more can you ask for.
Shakugan no Shana (action/romance/supernatural)
It was a normal day in the life of Sakai Yuuji. When all of the sudden, his life changes when a Monster called “Tomogara” attacks him and everyone around him. He was confused and shocked because everyone around him was turned into a blue flame and being consumed by the monster. Yuuji’s life was then saved by a girl in a black coat, with Burning Eyes (also known as Shakugan) and flaming red hair holding a long sword. Due to the confusion and chaotic mess Yuuji gotten into, he follows the girl with the flaming red hair and finds out the truth about everything around him. Yuuji find out that the truth is that the people around him have blue flame in their chests are not real people and that he was not a real person. He is a torch and torches are temporary replacements for people that have died and had their existence consumed by the monsters.
