The world of anime can be an overwhelming if you’re new to it (and a bit much even if you’re a hardcore fan). Don’t give up! As baffling and strange it can seem, it also contains some of the most memorable characters and best stories to grace any medium. Tales with heart, humor, romance, and awesome action. And space dogs. Sometimes there are space dogs!
Geek and Sundry along with Funimation want to help you with our new show Anime Gateways. Each episode is going to have a different theme: everything from Giant Robot anime to Romantic Comedies. The shows have a tremendous amount of diversity of them so we figured that different themes is a more accessible way to find shows that may interest you.
On this episode, we will be taking a deep dive into these series:
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Dragon Ball Z
If you’re an anime fan, there’s a 99.9% chance that your favorite anime isn’t on that list. BUT THIS IS ALSO WHERE YOU COME IN!! Please recommend your favorite anime in the comments below or post it on social media with the hashtag “AnimeGateways.” One of anime’s strongest aspects is the community behind each show, so please share the things that you love!
