Humor is great and all because I love to laugh, but there's only so much wordplay, meta-references, sexual humor, and yes even moe I can stand - where's the slapstick and dark humor... what about that?  When I laugh, I want a genuine belly laugh - not the same forced giggles I give everyday.  I don't mean to rant, it's just I feel there's a bit lacking in "funny" animu.

QuoteOh, and I saw DeathNote before it was on television and I wasn't very impressed. Sort of interesting I guess but it really tried too hard, don't you think? EVA is a little over rated if you don't care to look very hard, but it was pretty good.


For me, the characters in Death Note just weren't likable enough.  I didn't really like L at all, but I never understood what it was people liked about Light Yagami either.  For some weird reason, I really liked Near and Mellow, but still the main draw of the series was the theme - the concept that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.  I love watching cat-and-mouse games too, so all in all, I really liked the series.

As Toki mentioned, there's Paranoia Agent, and as I mentioned, Hell Girl.  I don't know about Darker than Black, but I wouldn't mind giving it a try.  There's also a classic for this category called Perfect Blue - it's a movie.

EDIT: I wonder if there's any Lovecraftian horror in animu, that'd be pretty freaking awesome...

No more like...
Crawling chaos, underground
Cult has summoned, twisted sound

Out from ruins once possessed
Fallen city, living death-

-Not dead which eternal lie
Stranger eons death may die

Drain you of your sanity
Face the thing that should not be

No, Metallica NOW=FAIL, 20yrs ago=WIN, but I think there was some dubbed anime that added music by Metallica... I'm not sure.

What I'm referring to is this:

Not my work, and I feel inclined to mention at this time that Fair Use Has a Posse, Chick!

For someone who likes to watch crunchy animes, Ultimate Girl and Mouse should be good... ^_^
