    Default Recommend things like Slayers = not stupid

    (Apparently the new format for all new thread titles involves an equals sign.)

    A friend asked me for "anime like slayers only yanno *good*". When prodded for clarification, she added "not lame" and "not stuuupid" -- so I don't know if she's looking for not-stupid fantasy adventure or not-stupid fantasy comedy. Either way, I couldn't think of much. She rejected Princess Mononoke as historical and Spirited Away as contemporary, so she specifically wants otherworld fantasy, but hadn't seen Nausicaa. And none of those are comedy.

    Can anyone help out here?

    .......... Slayers is one of the greatest action adventure fantasys!! Its one of the favorite series, even if its a bit silly. just had to clear that up.

    Well if your looking into the fantasy genre id say try Demon Diaray, or King of Hell, but these 2 are mangas.
    for anime try Guruguru Mahoujo or Last Exile was a good fantasy, but no magic.

    yes I noticed that too. I think Be0wulf's started a fad.

    Has she seen Escaflowne or the twelve kingdoms? Those are two of my favourite fantasy anime set in other worlds. Record of lodoss war is also good (though riddled wih D&D cliches) and so is mahou shoujotai alice, though it sounds as though she might consider it stuuuuupid from the premise.

    Escaflowne! I should have thought of that. And Fushigi Yuugi.

    I'll also try Twelve Kingdoms on her. Thanks!
