Please advice me some anime like Kaiji or DeathNote
« on: June 21, 2012, 06:17:10 AM »
Please do not suggest something like BlackButler, one out, code geas, Elven Lied, Monster, when the Cicadas Cry etc.
What I want to watch is an anime the plot of which is based on intellectual challenge, psychology. A gamble or something else. It must be really deep, realistic, intellectual. Be, not to seem)

Anyways, Akagi, Kaiji 2, Monster (yes, it is rather realistic, intellectual, if you want it to it will be quite deep too).

why not add kaiji and death note to the do-not-suggest list while you're at it?

anywayz, the closest thing to kaiji is zero which is an on-going manga, not an anime.

Ergo Proxy was pretty good when I try and compare it to what you seem to be looking for. =>

+1 to Akagi, IIRC it's by the same guy as Kaiji, and it's very good. It focuses almost entirely on mahjong though, and goes fairly in-depth, so my advice would be to quickly read up on the rules of Japanese riichi mahjong before watching. The subtitles have lots of notes, and it's fairly easy to pick up details from watching, so you don't need to be an expert to understand what's going on; but a basic familiarity helps.

If you like Akagi, then Legendary Gambler Tetsuya is very similar, so is worth trying. You might also want to consider Hikaru no Go; in some ways the anime itself isn't particularly deep or intellectual, but it spends most of the time focusing on Go matches in great depth, which is a very thoughtful, strategic game with a lot of depth to it; so you might like it (again, might be worth reading up on the rules of Go first - but they're so simple, it's probably not really necessary. Surprisingly simple, in fact, when you consider how deep a game it is).

The two are similar in setting, but I don't think it really fits the criteria. Tetsuya was mostly about ridiculous and impractical cheating
(click to show/hide)

It probably doesn't help to watch Akagi first, honestly. Tetsuya doesn't compare very well.

Monster
Akagi
Shion No Ou
Eyeshield 21
Kage No Yojimbo
Shintei Matantei Yakumo

Would also recommend this one. Deep plot, very interesting characters, dark, and at times, unpleasant and sad.
The problem with the world is that the intelligent  people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.
