    Searching For a New Anime

    Hihi! I'm currently looking for a new series to watch

    I haven't finished Bleach yet, but since that's still going, I want something to watch on the side.

    Preferrably something with action and romance mixed there I like a little drama too, just the works would actually do.

    I enjoyed Death Note, Code Geass, Inuyasha, and Samurai Deeper Kyo if that helps. ^_^

    So please suggest!

In the future the recipe to create the elixir is concealed amongst two of the surviving immortals. Though the potion grants immunity to disease, physical harm and age, those who have consumed the potion can take the lives of another who has drank it. As the immortals scatter across the world many live in fear that one day they may eventually lose what they have been clutching to for the past years. Baccano is set in a world of the mafia, where gangs fight for territory and others just kill for pleasure.

However after countless battles it is inevitable that she too will soon cease to live. As a reward for her services she is granted the choice of spending her remaining time the way she pleases. By leaving the stressful world of combat she is able to prolong her existence for just over a year. Mahoro chooses to enjoy the time she has left as an ordinary human. She soon moves in with Suguru a junior high school student living in Tokyo. Though at first Suguru doesn’t realize any connection between him and his new found maid Mahoro, it is soon revealed that his father was actually a commanding officer in Vesper, the one who had responsibility over Mahoro when she served as a battle android.

By having a “Torch” replacing the original person the world is kept at peace and the secret of the existence of these monsters are kept hidden. After the torch replaces the victim the torch slowly disappears and everyone forgets the existence of the original person.

    School Rumble: School Rumble is like a love triangle at its best, the characters all fall in love with one another but none of them seem to match. Tsukamoto Tenma is like any other ordinary girl, like normal girls she has a person she likes. Unfortunately her dream guy Karasumaru doesn’t feel the same way towards her as she does for him. To make matters worse Karasumaru plans to leave the school at the end of the year. With the help of Yakumo (Tenma’s sister) Tenma tries to confess her love. Harima Kenji is a delinquent who holds strong feelings for Tenma. Harima like Tenma is unable to express his feelings and to further confuse and mess up the situation Tenma is thick. Unable to realize the subtle hints of Harima’s feelings Tenma becomes confused in his actions. Yakumo on the other hand has the ability to understand what others are thinking about her and therefore rejects the many boys that attempt to ask her out. As Harima’s feelings lie towards Tenma, Yakumo begins to fall for Harima due to Harima’s personality and compassion towards animals. However as mentioned before Tenma is thick and believes Harima has fallen for her sister. The love triavle soon turns into a love web, a web of confusion that spawns comedy.

    Both Eureka Seven and Shakugan no Shana are good choices. I personally could not stand School Rumble, but that may just be me. For more of a pure romance series, I would suggest either Toradora or Lovely Complex. Both very funny with a really good romance story and a solid ending.

    And I cannot ever let one of these threads go by without mentioning Hayate no Gotoku. Funniest. Series. Ever.

    I always recommend Basilisk and Gurren lagann. If you liked Samuaria Deeper Kyo I think you will enjoy the series Basilisk. I don't give spoilers, but it is excellent. Gurren Lagann is one of the greatest anime in my opinion and you will probably love it.

    It looks like you're into the 'Dark Side' of anime... I would recommend the award winning series 'Gankutsuou', the Sci-Fi remake of the of the classic novel 'The Count of Monte Cristo'

    The Official Count of Monte Cristo: Gankutsuou Anime Site from FUNimation Productions

    The site Anime News Network currently has the first 4 episodes for video streaming viewing from a US/Region 1 location...

    I hate when they turn a classic into an anime like Romeo and Juliet and now the Count of Monte Cristo. A good darkish anime is Gantz, a funny one is Golden Boy ,and an action one is Rurouni Kenshin.

    These are probably not even worth mentioning since they are so popular, but have you seen Fullmetal Alchemist, Cowboy Bebop, or Neon Genesis Evangelion? They all fit the bill pretty nicely with action, drama, and romance.
