So here's an initial list of anime recommendations.
Some from "The Criterion Collection"
Samurai Champloo - Crunchyroll
About samurai and hip hop. Music slaps. RIP Nujabes.
Cowboy Bebop - Crunchyroll
About space cowboys, bounty hunting, and there's a cute corgi. Music also slaps.
Carole & Tuesday - Netflix
About two girls trying to make it in the music industry. Same universe as Cowboy Bebop. Music definitely slaps.
Akira (movie) - Hulu Plus
It's kinda gory, but it's a classic!
Every Ghibli Movie - HBO Max and wherever else you can find it
They're masterpieces. 'nuff said.
The Eccentric Family - Crunchyroll
This show is pretty interesting and about tanuki. Fantasy set in contemporary times.
Recently Hot Stuff
Spy x Family - Crunchyroll
Great show to watch with the family.
Chainsaw Man - Crunchyroll
Don't watch with your family! LOL
It's the highlight of its season.
Ya Boy Kongming! - HiDive
Reverse Isekai. Fun show to watch, music's not bad. Some great rap and hip hop as well. About people trying to make it in the music industry. Kongming's a great character.
Call of the Night - HiDive
About vampires and a teenager that discovers their world. Music slaps IMO.
Raven of the Inner Palace - Crunchyroll
Romantic Chinese show about a consort and a new emperor where the consort mostly deals with ghosts and curses and stuff. Supernatural. Very pretty show.
Shadows House - Crunchyroll
Interesting mystery-filled anime. Just go in blind. Pretty good show IMO.
Made in Abyss - HiDive
Gory anime, I honestly stopped after a while because I couldn't take it anymore. However, I still recommend people try it out and see if it's for them.
Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju - Crunchyroll
Great show, recommended for mature-minded audiences. Period drama with some really good Rakugo as well. Music slaps.
Victorian Romance Emma - Crunchyroll
Period romantic drama set in England. It's very charming, and the author is an Anglophile, so be prepared for interesting minute details.
Another - Crunchyroll
Thriller anime. Great if you like spooky stuff.
Boogiepop and Others - Crunchyroll
Supernatural mystery anime set in Tokyo. I don't know how to best describe it, but it's pretty good.
More Light-Hearted Stuff
Kaguya-sama - Crunchyroll
Multiple seasons. Really good and funny rom-com. Music slaps.
Horimiya - Crunchyroll
Cute boy-meets-girl story and about their classmates as well. Must-watch if you're into romance.
Poyopoyo - Crunchyroll
Great for kids and people with short attention spans! Cute cat.
Konosuba - Crunchyroll
Isekai. Very funny show, I highly recommend this one.
Laid-Back Camp - Crunchyroll
About high school girls camping. Very relaxing and educational.
Ghost Stories (dubbed) - Crunchyroll
If you're gonna watch this, watch the English dub. It's pretty funny.
Flying Witch - Crunchyroll
Real light-hearted fun anime about a witch in the countryside of Japan. If you want to just relax and have a good time, this is the show to watch.
Sekko Boys - Crunchyroll
Short-form anime with some really funny skits. I recommend watching it if you have a few minutes to spare every now and then.
Chihayafuru - Crunchyroll
Multiple seasons. Really refreshing story about a card game named Karuta and the development of the characters in the story about it.
March Comes in Like a Lion - Crunchyroll
Drama about Shogi players. It can be pretty melancholic and uncomfortable at times, but the story is really good IMO.
ODDTAXI - Crunchyroll
Mystery drama, pretty good. Full of animal characters. Don't get spoiled! 10/10 writing.
The Perfect Insider - Crunchyroll
Pretty good murder mystery, music slaps.
