I have been going anime crazy lately. I have been watching so much netflix that I expended everything worth watching until I remembered that there is a whole section for anime. SO MUCH YES to this thread.
I'll just list a few I watched with a quick summary...
Rosario + Vampire - AWESOME (I really liked the Ice girl, Mizore... probably because she was like a mix between sub-zero from mortal kombat and Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Club... whick are my favorite characters in each)
Kaze No Stigma -Also awesome. Kind of like a japanese magic mafia thing going on in the story with all the family rivalries.
Angel Beats! - Also Awesome... but more depressing than the ending for Toy Story 3 and that feeling lasts for at least half the season. I cried. I am a grown man and I will admit it. Beautifully written though, really well done.
Elfen Lied - Pretty good... I didn't realize it was a horror anime going in though and it was also really depressing... but not in a hopeful way that Angel Beats! was. I'm not really in to that blood and gore stuff. I got nauseous through a good part of it. Also really well written though and if you like horror animes I recommend it.
