    I have a Top 50, but if I had to pick just the one, it'd likely be Baccano! :yes:
    I'm leaning towards baccano! too and I just finished it 3 days ago haha, which character is your favourite ?

    That was me, I though a few of the people from the 'Best anime of all time?' thread might like it here. So welcome to the society!

    I first watched it soon after it aired, then a second time at my university's Anime Society (I was on committee and recommended it!), and recently marathoned it a third time. Still as good as I remembered!

    Baccano! has an amazing cast of characters, considering it's so short and there are so many of them! Hard to pick just the one, so I'll cop out by saying Isaac and Miria (they're very much a double act anyway :p:)

    Haha yes, I hate how it was so short lived, but if it was too long, the quality may have suffered, it deserved a second season more than durara, or whatever it was, my favourite character is Jacuzzi, idk why he just had an element of coolness to him.

    I first watched it 4 days ago, but I feel like a series veteran, I'm not sure whether I prefer this or ohshc... Despite them being such different anime

    I just started that yesterday, so I'm probably not the best person to make suggestions based on the plot; however, it felt very similar in style to the director (Yuasa Masaaki)'s other works, so if it's the quirky animation you liked then I'd recommend starting there. Kaiba and the movie Mind Game are particularly good. :yes:

    I'll watch virtually anything other than blatant fanservice shows with no redeeming plot or characters. I do have more of a preference for good stories and well animated action over romance and comedy though, and an interesting sci-fi/fantasy setting always makes things more interesting.

    I really liked it. The dialogue is so fast, it must have some sort of record for that.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Ahhh I see, I did watch one romance/comedy called my little monster but I am somewhat embarrassed when watching it like so cringey but it is very sweet and cute (also because the comedy was a huge factor too),

    hmmm do you have any recommendation somewhat similar to psycho pass/tk/dmwl like dark theme idk how to describe my preference?

    Oh not too much episodes max 24, but prefer 12 ish

    I want to watch Mononoke but it's tagged as horror and I'm a bit of a scaredy cat. Is it actually a horror because stuff like Parayste is tagged as horror when it's not really.

    One more question. Can anyone recommend a good show with a super intelligent MC? Or a show with a House of Cards vibe.

    Hmmm shows with a darker more mature sort of theme that spring to mind would be:

    Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
    From the New World
    Darker than Black
    Claymore
    Phantom - Requiem for the Phantom
    Now and Then, Here and There

    It's only 12 episodes long though. I just finished the first season recently and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
