Ok, so I’ve been trying to find anime for my wife that we can watch together but she’s a not a big fan of the “crazy moments” in anime where the characters just have random moments of crazy behaviour, think Bleach or Naruto or even Xxxholic. See video below for point of reference…I don’t mind them and am used to seeing them but my wife…not a fan.
As another point of reference, she absolutely loved Death Note! Dark, psychological drama with zero crazy moments, just a tight script with awesome characters and excellent pacing. We loved it so much that we ended up buying all three live action movies and watched those as well 🙂 Another one that we’ve just got into on crunchyroll.com is Bombshells From The Sky which can have those “crazy moments” as well but they’re woven so well into the script that they’re forgivable and don’t seem as random as the other animes. It’s a cute romantic comedy with feline humanoids from space…what’s not to love?!?
So what I’m going to do is start another page on this blog which will hopefully help other people along the same path who are after anime without the random crazy moments! If anyone wants to email me or comment on this post with suggestions for animes, that’d be muchly appreciated as well 🙂
