Probably about fifty or sixty since I started watching em in my early teens. Harder to find modern stuff that grips me like some of the best classics did (Cowboy Bebop, Evangelion, Hellsing, etc).
I gotta get to Hellsing, But Bebop was awsome. Music, animation, I like how its not that typical big eyed anime cutsey style. It has a badass style. Same with Akira.

Yep, Samurai Champloo is another great one (created by the same people that did Cowboy Bebop IIRC), but I'm guessing you've already seen that too.

Yeah, saw it.

Ghost in the Shell fuckin awesome animation too.


There's a sort of grittiness in old anime artwork that I like like in Bubble Gum Crisis

One as a kid - Pokemon - and in the last couple of years...some My Hero Academia.
That's it. I do watch My Mother's Basement (Geoff, the host) talk about anime, though, since he's funny.

Any suggestions on where to start?
pick one of the anime database URL we posted, and add the one you remember little by little :)

https://kitsu.io
https://anilist.co
https://myanimelist.net
https://anidb.net (you can start with "season chart", it'll be easier to remember what you seen by date/year)

a lot of people like myanimelist, but I always used anidb which I find easier to track file releases from each fansub group instead of just an anime list.
Anidb has applications (PC, or java web) to scan your file library, and add them all to your list using file checksum.
it's a "wiki-like" website, users can edit or add missing anime, group, description, episodes, releases (I did a few).

Anidb is more detailed, up to "release based", while other anime websites stop at "anime based" or "episode based".
Anidb can let you know which team made a fantrad, which language, file resolution, codec, etc.

But if you only want to track your anime/category count, or never keep your file archived (but anidb let you add them manually without scanning checksum too), then other websites are probably easier.


Edit:
Oh, and the thing I loooove from anidb, is the anime relation graph ! useful to know the season order when they don't have number or year attached to them.
it's automatically graphically generated based on anime relation (prequel/sequel, side story, spinoff, etc.)
for example :
https://anidb.net/anime/5101/relation/graph (Clannad)
https://anidb.net/anime/9541/relation/graph (Attack on titan)

which can become quite complex for crossovers !
https://anidb.net/anime/2733/relation/graph (Clamp relation graph)

Sweet! Does any of those help track Manga as well? (Sorry, off-topic for this group perhaps ;) ) but it would be nice to have both Manga and Anime listed at the same site (since they're often based on each other :P )

It sure is nice to have both on the same site.
I think anidb tried to integrate a mangadb once around 2007, but it's not there anymore. The developer said he caught the "not in the mood to do anything" sickness, oh I know that one too :whip::lol:
Understandable, as they envisionned something too big, like listing all released chapters from raw to scanlated groups etc., similar to anidb with anime releases.

I am re-watching, under the pretext of introducing them to my young son, some masterpieces of Japanese animation from the 1980s.
1) By the mythical author Gō Nagai, Mazinger Z, Great Mazinger, Steel Jeeg, Getter Robo/Getter G, Devilman/Devil Lady, Cutey Honey;
2) By the legendary Rumiko Takahashi, Urusei Yatsura, Maison Ikkoku;
3) By the great Yoshiyuki Tomino, MS Gundam, Z Gundam, ZZ Gundam and more recent Turn A Gundam and Double X Gundam;
4) By the memorable Masami Kurumada, Saint Seiya from the first series until the Hades saga.

Instead I watched alone, being violent genres, Hokuto no Ken and Berserk, both series and movies.😉
