started watching magi and im enjoying it, it seems to have a good story line and the animation is good
Have you watched Death Note (or something like that)?
Just after watching Soul Eater, its actually fairly good, I know it wouldn't be every ones taste but it was really entertaining. Apart from the terrible ending.
trying to watch deadman wonderland.. seriously. like im trying to but its so damn dark from all the heavy censoring because they decided to air a show with a shit ton of gore in the middle of the day.......
Hey I am in the same boat, I am generally new to watching anime, only been really watching non-toonami/adult swim animes for a little over a year. Our lists are similar, but there are a couple in particular you haven't seen that i think you will enjoy, here is my full list so far and i will try to bold some animes you would like that you haven't watched, I will try not to overlap:
Yu Yu Hakusho
The Wandering Son
Birdy the Mighty Decode
Avatar the Last Airbender
Full Metal Panic/Fumoffu
Darker Than Black
This Ugly yet Beautiful World
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Castle in the Sky
Grave of the Fireflies
so i am about to finish sankarea, and i am enjoying it, pretty much about a boy with this zombie fetish (not really, just obsessed with them) and ends up with a girl who becomes a zombie through some interesting means.
anyway it was good enough that hopefully they come out with a second season and they probably will eventually.
Reading the A song of Ice and Fire series is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere and shoots the puppy, then punches you in the face
so i finished sankarea, this is based of a manga so the ending to the 12th episode can in no way be interpreted as an ending, im hoping a second season comes out but id also have no problem reading the manga if one does not come out.
You need to watch Space Brothers. Don't let the title fool you.
I see you haven't watched Ergo Proxy. I just finished it and I absolutely loved it. There are certainly, at times, WTF moments, but in the end it is all described. Go watch it, it is extremely entertaining.
Although the series is on the darker-themed side, it is quite philosophical and... enlightening in a sense. Very real questions are asked and can be applied to the real world. Although some questions in the anime are far-fetched, it almost feels like you are taking a philosophy class. Ergo Proxy is one of the first animes I have watched of that kind. I would rate it at an 8.5/10 (or a 9/10... hard to decide). Indeed it is worth watching. (Oh btw, episode 15 seems like a stupid filler when you begin watching it, but I learned that it isn't and there is really relevant data in it. You won't understand the information that is described at that time, but by the end you will link pieces together... almost like an epiphany and the anime just makes sense!). Some people rate this anime lower due to not linking together the plot, but hey, not everything is designed to be likeable by everyone.
Now onto Welcome to the NHK!

started watching kotoura-san which started for this winter season, a pretty good show, not something thats you know exceptionally awesome but its far from bad, pretty much about this girl who has ESP and the problems that come along with it and w/e. if your keeping up with this seasons animes and havent picked this one up id recommend it.
I just finished watching Welcome to the NHK and I loved it. It is a VERY different anime, I have never encountered one like it. What can I say... what can I say? At times, it was aggravating to watch, seeing how the main character is a NEET (Not pursuing Employment, Education or Training), he is very socially in-adept. However, I thoroughly enjoyed the story's progression and felt that this is definitely one of the better animes I have watched.
A very nice aspect of this anime was that there was an actual ending. So many animes have vague or ambiguous endings, which seems to be over-done/cliche.
For anyone who has not watched this anime, I strongly suggest it. The characters begin to mean a lot to you very early in the story and nearing the end (past ep. 19 or so) they become much larger driving forces in the plot. Rating this anime I would definitely give it a 10/10 for it's originality and humor. Welcome to the NHK introduces many philosophical questions, some are answered, some are ambiguous. Indeed this anime was littered with dark themed stuff, but humor was abundant and Welcome to the NHK is a must-watch, in my opinion.

Did the other request an anime thread get locked or something?
