amylian2084252-san,
I think the answer to that question would really depend on your tastes and/or purpose of watching anime.

I think SAO is a good choice.

Hi there,

It really does depend on what you are into. But I quite like the somewhat romantic ones with a somewhat stronger female role. Not that I am even close to being a teenager anymore, but I am female :D Also if they have some sort of Japanese supernatural concept, then all the better.

kamisama hajimemashita

inu to boku

kimi ni todoke

kaichou wa meedo sama

Fairy Tail

Let me know if you watch any of these and if you like them. We can talk about them together if you want to.

Watch Clannad. Prepare to ball your eyes out. It's my #1 anime of all time and I've seen thousands of hours of anime.

I recommend "Free! (Iwamote Swim Club)" - its about a group of hot guys in a swim team, what more could you want :wink: You can watch it free (legally), with ads, on crunchyroll.com.

I saw someone else has already recommended Sword Art Online - I also really like this anime.

Has anyone else seen these two and have any similar recommendations?

Seconding Free!

I personally can't stand Sword Art Online or Clannad, so I'd actually advice avoiding those. :P

I'd recommend:
- Nana (I'm not a huge fan of this one myself, but it is good I just don't like one of the leads)
- Black Rock Shooter (OVA & TV) (Somewhat overly dramatic perhaps, but I enjoyed them both)
- Red Data Girl (Traditional Japanese magical stuff, gods, romance, what's not to love)
- Nishi no Yoki Majo: Astraea Testament (Been a while since I watched this one, but I remember loving it)
- Escaflowne (Currently watching it, more shoujo should include mecha)
- Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou (sounds like a harem, but it's actually a sweet love story with no panty shots or other harem antics!)
- K-On (It's cute and funny)
- Kyousou Giga (because everyone should watch it. Just make sure to watch the tv show, not the OVA)
- Ouran Koukou Host Club (this one is so funny, I highly recommend the manga as well)
- Otome Youkai Zakuro (Meji era Japan, kitsune, magic and bishies)
- Sakamichi no Apollon (Wonderful realistic drama set in 60's Japan. Also that soundtrack <3 <3)
and one I personally loved when I was a teenager Noir. Two female assassins set to a Kajiura Yuki OST. <3

I'm pretty sure you're going to like the Hakuouki series:
Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan

The characters are just lovely and the story is really good. I played Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom for PSP (which I loved) and afterwards I started watching the anime.
It's a lot of fun :flower:
