One day not too long ago a new icon appeared on my AppleTV. Crunchyroll? What’s that?
Turns out it’s a service for watching Anime, and it didn’t take me long to get addicted. The first series I watched was Sword Art Online, in which people are playing a super realistic MMORPG in which they wear headgear to become totally immersed in it. Turns out some bad dude is behind it all and nobody can leave the game or they will die. They have to beat the game to leave. Yeahhhhh can’t stop watching that!
Then I moved onto Attack on Titan. Huge giant humanoids (titans) essentially cover the world and humans have been forced back into a triple-walled city to survive. But all the sudden this SUPER big titan shows up and starts knocking down the wall. Humans need to step it up and fight. So good.
But now I’m caught up with that (it’s an on-going series right now) and looking for the next addiction. I was thinking Naruto Shippuden but…
@chriscoyier don’t get into naruto unless you are willing to watch 400+ episodes. Shippuden won’t make sense without the back story. IMO

I’m going to document a few more recommendations from Twitter friends:

@chriscoyier "Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet", "Zetsuen no tempest" & "Psycho Pass" are pretty good recent shows.

@chriscoyier If you're watching on CrunchyRoll, I started Hunter X Hunter after catching up on Titan. Didn't expect to like but not bad.

@chriscoyier I'd recommend Gargantia, it's entirely finished and on their site, so no cliffhangers.

Possibly not on Crunchyroll…
@chriscoyier I don't know if it's on Crunchy Roll, but I also recommend Angel Beats. Pleasant surprise, interesting plot, great score.

@chriscoyier I just noticed some new Full-Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood goodies on Netflix. It’s glorious if you haven’t watched it yet.

@chriscoyier Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood <= Better bestest best

@chriscoyier Don't you think you are a bit too mature for a show meant for japanese teenagers?
