YouTube - Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit Trailer


I just finished watching "Moribito" after picking it up on a whim at Walmart. I've never been much for anime but I was seriously impressed with this one. It was a totally different vibe than American shows but was riveting to watch and truly artistic in nature. Can anyone recommend other anime shows like this one that are worth watching?

I haven't gotten far in Morbito, so I don't know many like it but I'll recommend you a few of my favorites:

Series/Miniseries:
Cowboy Bebop
Trigun
Planetes
FLCL aka. Fooly Cooly
Magical Arcade Abenobashi

Movies:
Spirited Away
Howl's Moving Castle
My Neighbor Totoro
Grave of the Fireflies


The Count of MonteCristo is pretty good so far (4 episodes in), and it's available on Netflix "play it now". Most of the rest of the netflix stuff is dross. Dead Leaves is okay, but a little weird.

Good idea's. Start with any Hayao Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli film, and then go from there. Mr Miyazaki's work is already very popular in the West and his work, has quite a unique and artistic style to it.

Monster (very good)
Naruto and Naruto Shippuden (Great, imo)
School Rumble (if you want to laugh a lot - it's on Hulu)
Ergo Proxy
Great Teacher Onizuka (love it)
Inuyasha
Bleach (probably my favorite)
Witch Hunter Robin
This is all that I can think of right now...

Also, I'd go on Hulu and check out all the anime on there. They have a great collection.

I agree. Anything by Miyazaki is a good place to start.
