I like Durarara, Baccano is on my list. I agree with Wykked on two things: Gantz and long anime. I hate that History's Strongest Disciple was restarted just so another female character could be added in (not that I don't like female characters, just that it is purely for fanservice) and then took to to 400+ chapters. That said, Vagabond is at around 300 chapters.

Why has no one mentioned titles like Captain Harlock or Black Jack yet. They are CLASSICS, in storytelling, plot, and character.

On another vein, the fact that no one has brought up Fist of the North Star is a crime. That anime was GREAT,  for both atmosphere and characters. Things got wierd, but it was in a good way, regardless.

And for real depression, watch Grave of the Fireflies. A REAL antiwar movie.

One more thing: xxxHolic. It's one of CLAMP's better words, IMO.

I love the Rouni Kenshin manga. But not the anime. The anime was bad and the dub was horrible.

Wanna know a really horrible dub? Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (a.k.a. When the Cicadas Cry). The English dub was so bad that they didn't even finish the first season. IIRC they had to hire a 30-year-old narrator or something to voice Keiichi (the main male teenage lead), and it gets worse from there. Personally, I liked the anime, but it's definitely a cult favorite. And also on the gory side.

One of my favorite "horror" anime is Hell Girl. It's not quite horror but it is definitely a drama, and a very good one at that. Basically, there's a "Hotline to Hell" that can only be accessed online at midnight, and by entering a person's name there, you can send their soul directly to Hell. However, by sending their soul to Hell, your soul will also go to Hell when you die. The person who sends them to Hell is called Hell Girl (Jigoku Shoujo). The best thing about this show is that 99% of the time, you don't have to watch the episodes in order. They are all stand-alone episodes with their own storyline and situation.

I'm fairly sure I remember watching a episode of Hell Girl on something obscure for anime, I almost want to say it was IFC.  In fact I remember a few obscure animes coming on certain channels, like Tehjo-Tenge on Fuse, and a number of series like Soul Taker, Dual!, and Read or Die being on G4's Anime Unleashed late in the night during the mid 2000's.

Anyone remember Descendants Of Darkness? It was trippy as hell and put forth the idea of a soul society long before Bleach did it.
Matthew 22:39 "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." God's own "don't be a dick" rule.

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.

Yeah I saw it at the uni anime society. We generally took the mic out of it (ending lines with "from behind" for example).

Hmm... For me, Yu Yu Hakusho, Ranma 1/2, Inuyasha, Saiyuki, Fushigi Yuugi, Azumanga Daioh, DB/DBZ (no GT!)...

I also love Yu-Gi-Oh... at least when it's the original Japanese release. They didn't even release the first season over here because the Pharaoh was sooooo brutal in the beginning, and they cut out the part where the bodies of the villagers of Kul Elna were put in a pot and boiled in order to forge the Millennium Items.

I wish they would make an anime based upon CLAMPS Wish manga. It's interesting in that it deals with God, Angels and Devils without becoming preachy or dull.

Another favorite of mine was one I didn't even KNOW was an anime until much later... ASTROBOY!!!

Just bought myself Redline, which is kinda like if you take the speedracer movie, turn it back into an anime, and drown the discs in acid and various other hallucinogens.

Also picked up the complete series of Card Captor Sakura, which managed to put the entire 70 episodes on three DVDs. the quality is... better than i would have expected, considering the amount of compression that must have been required.

Oooh, just thought of a really bad anime, if you count it as anime. The much reviled Transformers Kiss Players. Optimus Prime was a pedophile, more or less. Megatron kept trying to play rape-rape revolution and there was penis tongue.

Wh-what? My mind refuses to admit that this is real...

I can admit that it exists, as a quick Google search reveals, along with the truth of all the above claims. Given all of this, I will... move on to something else.

Actually, I should move on to a question: I am six episodes into Serial Experiments Lain, and whilst I saw the scenes where Lain was upgrading her Navi, I'm a little confused about the exact point where it went from bog-standard desktop to scale model of the ZooTV stage. Any pointers?

Considering that its Serial Experiments Lain, just go with it. Its ambiguous on purpose.

Click it if you dare. Though the tropes page does say I got a detail wrong. Kiss Players is set between the 86 movie and the 3rd season of G1. So I should have said Galvatron instead of Megatron.

A picture of the cover art, which I'm linking because I don't hate all of you. http://media.animevice.com/uploads/1/13254/403017-kissplayers_collection_cover_large.jpg

And penis tongue complete with oozing fluid from the tip. http://media.animevice.com/uploads/1/13254/339433-legion_large.jpg

This should go without saying, but I wouldn't look at those if you're at work.
