    Enlighten you?

    "How long is the night to the watchman; how long is the road to the weary; how long is the wandering of lives ending in death for the fool who cannot find the path!"

    "If a fool can seee his own folly, he in this at least is wise; but the fool who thinks he is wise, he indeed is the real fool."

    "A wrong action may not bring its reaction at once, even as freash milk turns not sour at once: like a smouldering fire concealed under ashes it consumes the wrongdoer, the fool."

    These are from 'The fool' in the Dhammapada. use them wisely.

    Ooooo... Poetic. I have one too,
    The ancient masters
    Didn't try too educate people,
    But kindly taught them to not-know.

    When they think that they know the answers,
    people are difficult to guide.
    When they know that they don't know,
    people can find their own way.

    as for your manga...
    Well you can always try Under the Glass Moon.

    If you're looking for action, I would suggest Arjuna, although, the whole series covers a lot of things so it doesn't concentrate on the action fully, but the battle scenes, although they're not that many, are to be taken note of.
    I don't know if you would consider them action though, as the Ghost in the Shell does have a lot more action, but Arjuna is still recommendable. Perhaps you can try Vampire Hunter D, because from what I hear, it's more satisfying than Hellsing, which I have also watched myself.

    For horror anime, I'd recommend Boogiepop Phantom. The story can be a little hard to follow sometimes (it was for me the first time I watched it ), but it has a really eerie atmosphere and it's kinda dark. It's the only anime that's given me the shivers.

    "Blood: The last vampire" is a good mix of action and horror. I really enjoyed this one and the horror felt like it came right out of a hollywood movie... ok not exactly out of a hollywood movie, but it felt like it.
    I download anime, watch anime,
    download more anime, watch more anime,
    and download anime soundtracks because I have no life.

    As far as horror titles to try that you haven't all ready seen..... I'd sugguest Elfen Lied.
    It's a rather new title, only made in 2004, but it's all ready been licensed by ADV so the DVDs should be out fairly soon.
    It's got lots of blood and violence, as well as lots of nudity and creepy little girls.
    So if you like a series that's very VERY dark and moody, pretty horrific and gut wrenching but still enjoyable and entertaining to watch, I'd go with Elfen Lied.
    One of the best horror anime I seen in a while....
