    That is the first episode.

    It is a very dark and bleak series revolving around supernatural dark spirits and ghost stories, as well as people with serious psychological and moral issues. Let's just say watching a child be gutted on screen is fairly common, as is incest, and suicide.

    How about Paranoia agent?

    Requiem is somewhat like that, but takes place in feudal Japan. And yeah I loved that anime, you should try and watch the ending sometimes it gets, beyond description.

    Not surprised about that. I'll see about it, though I'm not a big fan of what's been labeled 'gore porn' in the sense it seems to enjoy showing gore stuff. Like the saw movies and such :x

    It isn't gore/torture porn, I really dislike the saw series as well. It has some hard to watch moments yeah, such as watch women impaled on pikes being burned alive, realistically. But most of it is very psychological, and has to do with moral dilemma.

    One thing I really liked about the series was actually the main character. Despite being in feudal Japan, he isn't some warrior. He isn't some skilled monk, or magic user. He's just an author without any use in combat. More so his way of dealing with conflict is through talking to people, investigation, as well as sometimes fleeing. So there is a definite sense of conflict.

    I love One Piece though. Except the newest arc. They went on and on about some merman history thing that I dont care about. I just wanna see what a time skipped Luffy can do. Especially that Elephant Gun move.

    You should read the manga instead. It’s already on the next arc.

    I agree with Spur silly

    My verdict on Bleach and One Piece.. There's more talking in One piece, but that's only because of the style, it has more of a comedy vibe, while Bleach now has very little text, in fact now to the point where chapters are pointlessly short.

    I get through a chapter of bleach in like 1-2mins now while one piece usually takes me a good 5, which gives better quality too I wonder Shrug

    I'll also say about cowboy bebop: I enjoyed it, Spike is a very slick character. However, in terms of it being 'one of the best' animes of all time, I wouldn't agree. It's unique certainly in style, the way the whole screenplay is conducted by the jazz backing is brilliant, but beyond that effect, I didn't think it was so worthy of complete acclaim. A great series? Certainly. One of the best animes ever? I'm not so sure.

    Wolf's Rain, Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade, Berserk, Big O, Tenjho Tenge (manga was better), Texhnolyze, Steins;Gate, and Cashern Sins.

    Sword Arts Online is..... To put it kindly, subpar. The premise of the first half wasn't used to the fullest, the characters are flat, and it abuses every cliche like a crackhead would a mountain of cocaine.

    The fact that it's praised as "teh gretaest animu evar!" just makes me wonder how it's writer can watch it and not suffer 'old shame'.

    Edit: Oh and 'great necromancy is abound' etc etc...

    As well, I'ven't bothered to read any shonens (not til bleach FINALLY ends). Friendship speeches are par for the course with them so yeah.

    It's the hype Q, the hype and praise its been getting (doesn't help that it's always compared to .hack//, one of my favorite franchises)

    Cloud, I know what you mean all too well. Hype can ruin so much... Only thing I've ever encountered that lived up to its hype was "The Silence of the Lambs", and that's only because I get all hot and bothered over good villains.

    If people can post the english names as well? I prefer to watch in japanese but sometimes the name is translated so the show is difficult to locate.

    Any one know any funny shows (not necessary comedies)? I lean towards humor in character development. I shy away from shows like FLCL and hentalia. (characters like spirit in soul eater just anger me)

    Should of thought about that before.

    The english translation is Anohana: The Flower We Saw that Day

    Although I have no idea what the english translation would be for Nyan Koi.

    Pretty sure nyan is how the japanese language represents a cats meow. Koi means several things, most of which relate to love or kindness.

    based on this my guess is Love meow (IE meow of love) or kind meow.

    Any chance it involves cats?

    It revolves the main protagonist being cursed by a cat spirit and if he doesn't help 100 cats out he turns into one and dies because he has allergies to cats. It also seems that everyone in the show besides the protagonist has a profound love for cats too.

    So in answer to your question, yes it revolves around cats.
