Naokia Urasawa's Monster:
A fairly well known anime as far as the psychological suspense/criminal genres go, Monster is about a skilled Japanese neuro-surgeon working in Germany named Kenzo Tenma. The story takes place a short while after the Berlin Wall collapses and the spoiler-free summary consists of Tenma scouring Europe for a serial killer who framed the murders of at least three people on him. It can be drawn out, but overall its an excellent show.
Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt:
Yep. It's very hard to describe because it kind of fits into its own genre (if you've seen it, you know exactly what I mean). It has a Western-style take on animation and uses a LOT of toilet humor and cursing, along with some funny parodies and an awesome soundtrack. It doesn't really have much of a story besides the two main characters (Panty and Stocking) are angels cast down from heaven for being immoral, and must hunt ghost to repent. Each episode is loosely connected and usually consists of two different sections, like many Western cartoons. Hilarious and definitely worth the watch.
Serial Experiment Lain:
This show is really hard to follow. It follows a young girl named Lain, as she becomes more and more engrossed in the ever-present "Wired" (the equivalent of the Internet). Its interesting in that the Wired is essentially able to interact with reality because it is hosted through the Earth's magnetic field (something to do with the Schumann resonance property, lol wikipedia). Lain begins to drift away from her normally shy and introverted self and becomes more outspoken and connected to the Wired. I can't even begin to try to explain this storyline properly. I made it to the last episode and still barely understood all of the plot devices going on, (mostly because of the narrative style) since huge story events can be passed over without even noticing.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann:
Mechs. Really, really, REALLY big mechs. The story takes place on what seems to be a post-apocalyptic Earth where nearly every surviving human has been forced to take shelter underground. Simon, a young boy and the main character, lives in one such village as a driller. One day when him and Kamina (Simon's pseudo-brother) are being punished for an attempted escape, the ceiling suddenly collapses and a gigantic mecha (they're called Ganmen in the show) falls through with a red-haired sniper named Yoko in pursuit. The episodes follow their adventures as they try to destroy the forces of the repressive Lord Genome so that human's may once again dwell on the surface. It can get VERY excessive and cheesy, but its almost ironic in light of itself. It is definitely a watch for any mecha fans who haven't already seen it.
Speed Grapher (Pretty unique as far as plot goes)
Rurouni Kenshin (post samurai x)
Winds of Stigma (meh)
I just realized how few animes that I've watched fall under M-Z
I won't make the wall of text any larger....yet. I might write some stuff about Steins;Gate if/when I finish it. Same thing goes for Redline as well.
Uhh......I guess that means you should....discuss these animes along with others in the thread?
Become what you are.
