Quick Anime Guide For Newcomers

Many people out there think that animated stuff is just for kids.But I assure you that the viewership of anime is much larger amongst grownups.Most of the plots and stories behind any anime is power with any top class novels, stories and movies.

Unlike live action films Animation lets your imagination go wild.
And as the saying goes:

"Some Stories Can Only Be Told Anime Style"

Here I'm gonna give you some quick direction on how to begin your anime experience.

Firstly,get it out of your head that anime is for kids-don't forget there's a kid inside anyone.

Secondly,it is extremely crucial to decide which anime you are going to start seeing.My suggestion would be to go in for anime not exceeding 100 episodes and most of all Start With The Most Popular. The following is link will help you decide:

My suggestion would be starting with:

1.Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (TV)
Plot Summary:Two brothers lose their mother to an incurable disease. With the power of "alchemy", they use taboo knowledge to resurrect her. The process fails, and as a toll for using this type of alchemy, the older brother, Edward Elric loses his left leg while the younger brother, Alphonse Elric loses his entire body. To save his brother, Edward sacrifices his right arm and is able to affix his brother's soul to a suit of armor. With the help of a family friend, Edward receives metal limbs - "automail" - to replace his lost ones. With that, Edward vows to search for the Philosopher's Stone to return the brothers to their original bodies, even if it means becoming a "State Alchemist", one who uses his/her alchemy for the military.

2.Fullmetal Alchemist (TV)
Stand alone story but deviates from the manga (Japenese Comics)
Plot Summary:After losing their mother, Alphonse and Edward Elric attempt to bring her back using the forbidden science of human alchemy. However, alchemy operates on the theory of equivalent trade, and breaking the human alchemy taboo carries a heavy price. Ed loses his leg, and Al loses his body. Ed is able to seal Al's soul inside of a huge suit of armor, at the cost of his arm. Years later, Ed (now with two mechanical limbs) and Al (still trapped in the armor) leave their childhood home, each brother concerned with the other's happiness. Ed, who has a natural talent and skill for alchemy, becomes nationally certified and is soon known everywhere as the "Fullmetal Alchemist." Their true objective is to search for any information on the fabled Philosopher's Stone, hoping it will allow them to regain their old bodies. All of their hopes rest with this mythical stone, which may not even exist at all. However, the brothers soon learn that they are not the only ones after the powerful stone.
3.Death Note (TV)
Plot Summary:Yagami Light is an ace student with great prospects, who's bored out of his mind. One day he finds the "Death Note": a notebook from the realm of the Death Gods, with the power to kill people in any way he desires. With the Death Note in hand, Light decides to create his perfect world, without crime or criminals. However, when criminals start dropping dead one by one, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down the killer, and a battle of wits, deception and logic ensues...
4.Avatar: The Last Airbender (TV Series 2005–20005)

Plot Summary:American animated television series that aired for three seasons on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008. The series was created and produced by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, who served as executive producers along with Aaron Ehasz. Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in an Asian-influenced world wherein some are able to manipulate the classical elements by use of psychokinetic variants of Chinese martial arts known as "bending." The show combined the styles of anime and American cartoons, and relied for imagery upon various East-Asian , Indian and South-American societies.

Lastly, after you get hooked to anime you could start with the epic saga's of Naruto, One Piece, Bleach etc.I mainly recommend these for later as they have large number of episodes 500+ and require a great deal of dedication and commitment.

Go Ahead and Give It A Try......Let Your Imagination Run Wild.....
