    It sort of reminds me of Shiki (minus having the creatures that kill people). I like the pychological thriller genre of anime.

    Basilisk/Spirited Away are still the greatest anime to me, but I will make sure to see this one too. it looks interesting.

    the best anime movie is ghost in the shell, it has the coolest scene in anime history when the major is fighting the tank, when she is trying to rip it open even though its braking her to pieces she still keeps going, her arm and legs break but she still looks coolicon_biggrin.gif

    My favorite anime is hetalia,
    basically each country's stereotypes are embodied into single characters, the story mostly revolves around WW2.
    gives a totally different meaning to the terms "invade" and "conquer" icon_twisted.gif

    Grave of the fireflies and Evangelion will severely ruin a child >.>. Though my issue with a lot of anime is it's always some kid (11-14) who has to save the world and deal with complex adult emotions THAT CHILDREN CANNOT PROCESS. It's like anime writers are afraid of using adults, or breaking outside of anime character archetypes (hyperactive cat girls with giant tits, hyperactive little kids who like being assholes, creepy teachers, bouncy tits).


    RahXephon is literally what Evangelion could have been (good), had it dropped all the pretentious bullshit.


    Deadman Wonderland follows more of the "little kid (14 years old) is thrown into a horrific situation and has to be the hero, but it's characters (minus Shiro) are interesting and realistic...ish.




    Highschool of the dead has zombies and boobs...like really if I you are pitching it to a straight guy, that's all you need. It's also a freaking awesome zombie anime. (and it's on netflix!)


    Persona 4: The Animation...I honestly can't talk about this anime without bursting into rainbows and gushing about how much I love it..I have a problem. All the characters are fleshed out and feel like real people and the animation is top quality.



    Guilty Crown is another pretty decent anime...nothing special except for the animation and action (which is damn good). The opening is kind of epic too.



    No.6 is pretty awesome if not for the simple fact that the love between the two characters is interesting, complicated, and believable. Also, they are totes gay.




    Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, pretty much if you don't watch this and like anime, you're a terrible person.



    Night Raid 1931 is another good one, the characters are interesting, the story is solid, AND it's on netflix and hulu icon_biggrin.gif



    Guin Saga takes everything you thought you knew about anime, and makes it more awesome. It's like...Conan meets lord of the rings meets...um...some stuff, but it's AMAZING (and is on netflix icon_biggrin.gif)




    Moribito will make you call you're mom (or loving big sister) and tell her how much you love her....granted you're mom (or big sister) was a spear wielding badass who defended you from an entire country who wants to see you dead. (On Netflix AND Hulu)



    The Legend of The Legendary Heroes is essentially X-men, set in medevil times, and instead of super powers there is magic.

    OH GOD, I left out Ghost In The Shell Stand Alone Complex (1st, and Second gig are both on Netflix). This show has everything, government conspiracies, cop drama, courtroom drama, military drama, mechs, cyborgs, sociology, and intelligent conversation you've never heard in an anime that wasn't drenched in pretentiousness. (Plus the voice actress for Major Motoko Kusanagi is one of the best female voice actresses I've ever heard)




    I also left out FLCL >.> This show is awesome, only 6 episodes, and introduces you to an awesome band icon_biggrin.gif

    Your anime choices are awesome though. I'm still waiting on Legend of the Legendary Heroes. They just have to make another season!



    Apart from the Ghibli movies, my favorite would have to be The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.

    Don't forget Paprika also written by Yasutaka Tsutsui, and then adapted by the late Satoshi Kon. If you guys like Inception, you might enjoy this anime too, except it is more surreal. Even Nolan said it was one of his influences.



    Any Ghibli film directed by Hayao Miyazaki is gold. I have to watch Princess Mononoke at least a couple times with passing year.

    Oh yeah, that Gyo trailer, i`m disturbed for the next couple days icon_eek.gif

    Not a movie technically, but I really enjoyed Death Note.
