  1. Let's start with this proxy, technolize and the cycle about the megastructure of Nihei Tsutomu raises the issue of technological immortality and its impact on society.(blame, sidonia no kishi)
    Let's add the entire isekai genre as the embodiment of the dream of a simple society and escape from civilization.
    Separately, we will include the sins of Kassyan, the journey of cinema, the space dandy, which in principle affect almost all aspects of life. I recommend it.
    And then there's the recent ” I shaved, then brought a high school girl home.” Despite the provacative title, this is probably the most moralistic creation that I have ever seen in my life, a kind of play on the story of the good Samaritan in the entourage of modern Japan. The hero, out of humane considerations, sheltered a high school student who ran away from home and was engaged in prostitution, and found himself in a situation where his good deed could destroy his life every second and end in prison and public censure.

    In fact, this anime is such an underrated Russian-speaking community. In English, everyone already understands how deeply the topics of the concept of personality, spiritual development, the embodiment of humanity, the value of life, soul, religion, drugs, alcoholism, society, fear, love, friendship, greed are revealed – and this is not all.
    Most viewers misunderstand this anime from the very beginning, as it creates the illusion and atmosphere of a children's cartoon, about a cheerful child with a big goal, who will have many adventures. However, this is only partly true and mostly false fiction.
    In fact, if you watch it to the end, read the continuation in the manga, and analyze what you've seen at least a little – the true idea of this anime can be compared to the Mariana Trench.
    And what all this teaches is that each viewer draws conclusions for himself. But I will say a few words: a lesson in the power of the spirit and the price of life. And you can say a lot of things about this for a long time and without boredom. These are very broad topics. I won't spoil anything, but if you put “Hunter x hunter psychology” on YouTube after watching the anime, all your thoughts will be occupied only with analyzing everything in the anime, because literally even the smallest details say a lot.
    Good luck! I hope it was useful and interesting.

  3. It will take a long time to list, since any anime, except for a frank rogue, reveals not only gg, but also minor characters, and even the villain may not be a bastard, but a victim of circumstances!

    I started watching anime because of the opportunity for the viewer to decide for themselves what is good and what is bad/who is right and who is wrong! unlike ordinary movies, where you are poked in the face by caricatured bad guys,and these are good just because)

    In this regard, the notebook had the potential to become a masterpiece,but the realism of the work led to total censorship, and the interesting confrontation between the ideals of L and Kira turned out to be devils! L, who doesn't give a damn about justice(which he sometimes used to hide behind)the game of reason itself is important to him /the police serve the state, which also deals in terrible things and legalized such a right and against the background of this madness, a person who, at the cost of his life and reason, decided to radically solve the problem of crime (and even within the framework of censorship, the results were), but do not try to empathize with him an attempt has been made on the sacred ! monopoly of the state !only the state has the right to punish crime/kill them if it wants and not only that!

    In general, thanks to censorship, we are taught that no matter what your intentions are, if you are not part of the state, then you are interfering with its monopoly and you are wrong by default! hence the main mistake of Kira,he did not try to negotiate with the state or use force to completely subordinate it to his interests,in any case,having the opportunity to take the lives of all key figures of power in all countries,no Ly if there were at least 100 of them,he would not be interested,except that new faces in politics will drown for humanism and collect the electorate, and then if Kira does not do as they want, then he will easily be written down as a devil and destroyed(by that time enough will know about him and conditional L could easily get close to him, but if you do not make the villain stupid, then tetrad lets you erase memories and come out clean(I'm really surprised how a supposedly smart schoolboy managed to merge with such a tool,however censorship…) in this regard, the gias code, where gg was allowed to roam in view of the fantastic and unreal nature of what is happening, is much closer to a masterpiece(especially the ending…just a top unlike a notebook)

    1. Naruto.

    There are many philosophical questions raised, such as: lack of understanding by society, loneliness, difficult choices, and so on. First of all, this anime teaches you to understand other people, not to judge by appearance, not to laugh at other people's dreams and try to make the right choice.

    2. Van Pease.

    In general, this is a very large universe and philosophy is often found there, serious questions are raised and ways or impossibility of solving them. Van Pease teaches a lot like Naruto, which is based on friendship.

    1. Echo of terror.

    This anime can definitely be called philosophical. Who does not know, it tells about two schoolchildren who, by their actions, want to show society its flaws and reveal the truth.

    Well, as in many answers before me, I want to mention such anime as Steel Alchemist and Code Giass. I will also add here Attack of the Titans-an amazing anime where many profound questions are raised.

    In conclusion, I will say that in every anime there are questions raised by the author, even in some humorous anime. The main thing is to find and understand them.

  4. And, well, the chainsaw man of course, there is the most modern world made on the basis of Platonic eidos and the mutual attraction of power and rebellion is revealed 100%.

  5. I believe that certain philosophical questions were raised in such anime as (From the first, most philosophical):

    1. DXD school (season 1, 3, as they were not raised in the second one)
    2. Goblin Slayer(4 series)
    3. Valor of a Failed Knight
    4. Magus Healer: A new start

    In all of these animes, one question was raised: why can't small dwarves become big? What is their limit???… and if so, how do they reproduce?…

  6. The best anime in the genre of philosophy isThe Elite class. This anime is just top. You have to be a little smarter to watch. Another animeThe rosy time of my school life failed. Other than these, I do not know. If that advise similar anime in the school of the genre and at the same time to have philosophical thoughts that makes you think.

  7. In general, “Oregairu” and “Stein's Gate”, the first about youth and school (romance) life and gg who put a bolt on everyone, and Stein's gate tells that any choice will sometimes have unexpected consequences, also “If you are not busy you will save me from the apocalypse”, they tell that no matter how bad life is, you can always get out, and “April Lie” – tells that even on the threshold of death you can enjoy life.

  8. Everyone named the classics of the genre-death note, Naruto, steel alchemist, code geas, and so on.�

    Without a dispute, these are gorgeous works that make you think about many things,but as for me, they missed something.

    Hellsing Ultimate is one of my favorite titles. At first glance, it may seem a bit trashy,but if you look a little deeper, you can find more than one layer of different meanings that are competently interwoven into each other. Nazism, a question of faith, religion, betrayal,the rigidity of this world. I advise everyone.�

    Only necessarily OVU, and not the old slag of the noughties.

    1. Ergo Proxy is very philosophical and with references to Rene Descartes.

    2. Tehxnolyze… just take a look.

    3. “An Elven song.” a lot of violence, but also meaning.

    and this is not to mention the classics like “Evangelion” or “Berserk”.

    you are the criterion for your philosophical questions, and you can find them everywhere, even in One-Punch Man.

    Good luck!)

  9. This or that philosophical thought can be seen, probably, in every anime.�

    Most often, Death Note is compared to Code Geass. Both of these animes are in my top five, which one is better-it's hard to say. Death Note is interesting and exciting from the first episode, but the second half is much inferior to the first. In Code Geass, everything is the opposite, the second half of the second season is at the level of the first half of Death Note.

    Kaiji. Anime about what people really are and what they are ready for in a difficult situation. The drawing is not impressive, the first episode is too, but everything is very high-quality in terms of the plot. The message is similar to that shown in the “Death Parade”, but conveyed more “strongly” and harshly.

    Fate/Zero. Best anime I've ever seen. The topic of donating for the salvation of many is raised. But” Stein's Gate ” (Stein's Gate) – the opposite situation, what to sacrifice for the sake of saving loved ones.

    From the long ones-Bleach, Naruto, One Piece. The latter is most focused on the emotional component.

  10. Mushishi and Mononoke are unique in this regard. They destroy the naive realism, the atmosphere of fantasy, in some ways even frightening. Irrational behavior of people is described by external influence, and more often not intentional. At the same time, you can see a lot of metaphors, from the fact that the monster under the bed should be friends, to the fact that sometimes the most terrible monster for a person is himself. Mushishi is also about harmony, about our attitude to the unknown, our xenophobia.

    I agree with incrd blegh, because good anime often carries a philosophy. Only it doesn't always build throughout the anime in the same way as the idea of “Am I a trembling Thing…” in Death Note. But you can throw stones, even such seemingly purely entertaining anime as Fate, Naruto and Sailor Moon have a lot of strong ideas, and they can teach you a lot (in individual characters, storylines, most often in antagonists).�

    Studios almost always screen manga, the manga does not have a bright visual effect, it should have an idea that it would become interesting and the idea hit the screens. I think this is a factor in the presence of philosophical questions in the anime. Sometimes there are styles imbued with philosophy, the same cyberpunk.

  11. Almost any decent senen title (especially seinen) addresses philosophical, existential issues.

    The list of titles I've viewed is very modest, but one of those that made you think:

    • Steel Alchemist: Brotherhood (principle of equal exchange, interconnection of everything in the universe, causal relationship)
    • The city I'm not in (how something you were afraid/embarrassed to do could change the lives of others)
    • Deadly Parade (the influence of fear on the level of humanity)
    • New Generation Evangelion (philosophy of introspection)
    • Stein's Gate (what is “choice”)
    • Parasite: The Doctrine of Life (here, rather, a question of evolution)
    • Ghost in the Shell (soul, consciousness, and other partly philosophical things)
      Obviously, there's a lot missing here. I would have added it myself, but I don't want to add anything I haven't looked at.

    What the title will teach you-it's hard to say, people are different. I will only add landmarks to the titles that you can think about for a long time.
