    Well truth be told i mainly read/watch the darker stuff when i;m doing well lately well more like for about a year and a quater or more i;ve been having some problems identity issues nervous breakdown basically the stuff most people deal with as a teen and am having some real problems mentally. Though i;ve been getting better lately i keep havibg flashbacks so i;ve been watching series like you mentioned more than i would in the past. Hell the whole mess with the site we were talkinga bout a few oages back has been my big issue lately. Heh i just wanta free world where the iodea of fantasy as fantasy exists instead of all these crazy laws.

    edit oh yeah and if you think those are dark ypou should see some of the hentai i've read you might wanna kill yourself after those. But again that was in the past and i need to rebuild myself mentally before i can go back.

    I like any anime that has interesting characters that get me involved with the story. Whether it is dark and disturbing, or light and fluffy, I'll watch it. I like the darker stuff because it is a perfect counter for people who say that "cartoons are for kids". Anyone who would let their kids watch Higurashi, Umineko, Bokurano, or Narutaru, not to mention countless others, has no right to be a parent imo. No way I would let my children, when i have them :/, watch that stuff until they were older. But, it gets my friends who don't like anime off my back. My watch list is quite an even mix right now I think.
    Watching:
    Freezing (not really dark...kinda darkish i guess. Serious i guess you'd say)
    Kore wa Zombie Desuka? (through and through comedy, with random bouts of seriousness.)
    Infinite Stratos (typical Harem, looking like it might have more to the story than they are making obvious atm.)
    Star Driver (epic mecha meets mahou shounen O.o)
    Index Season 2 (fantasy/sci-fi action anime, good fun to watch)
    Kimi ni Todoke S2 (slice of life/dramedy)
    Dragon Crisis (fantasy action/harem, really good ending song ;D )
    Puella Magi Madoka Magika (dark mahou shoujo, incredible, kinda sad it is almost over )

    So yea, I like my dark and dreary as much as my bright and cheery (cwutididthar?).

    I try to be tough though. Just like how I can not eat spicy food and Ill try to order something mild and still sweat like a pig and my nose will run like crazy and everyone in the restaurant will be looking a me... I try to see if I can handle some darker or maybe less rainbows and unicorn anime but it usually doesn't end well. Im sorta into darker appearing stuff but thats just it I'm just in it for looks really and I guess some psychological things too. I was so excited when i first saw and heard about Elfen Lied. I saw the art of it and I was like I can handle this but then my head almost exploded a few times. Im just realy sensitive I cant differentiate fictional happenings from reality at times so keeping it light hearted is what I learned works the best. But I still cry during about every pixar movie and even the most random things. I think I was geneticist created to make sure tissue brands never go out of business but probably have killed a whole rain forest by myself > <Sorry to hear about some of the issues you are facing. I'm sure you considered it already but maybe if you avoided darker anime do you think it might help? I know its likely no where related but I have dealt with depression for a while now and I learned I need to avoid certain things one in particular country music, that stuff is just really depressing if you ask me. That stuff just ruins my day somehow not sure how people thing its wholesome and beautiful its all about sad things or cheating stealing drinking lying.... I might as well listen to gangster rap than country. Are you into skelanimals or like the brand Tokidoki? Thats about as dark as I get =D

    Ok cya guys. Im gonna try to read some more of The Elegance of the Hedgehog so I can get back to manga for the weekend.

    MM not quite my issues stem from a medical test messing with my self perception. That combined with odd phsyiology/neurology means that even that test that messed me up could be wrong even slightly. Add in that every time i started to recover more shit hit me my mind just about gave u[. Truth be told i'm almost fully healed mentally or i was then some other stuff came up. As my therapist says i seem to be unusually resiliant fact is i've seen and experienced shit in my life that some people are traumatized by into their 30s and 40s if not for life and i'm mostloy pover that. Just lacked time alone to recover.

    As for the depressing stuff getting to me yeah they did but after about 1-2 days at most i'm better. Just imagine having issues keep coming at you RIGHT as you're getting better that's what got me. Then again so,me shit happened in regards to one of my main hangouts in the past with someone saying it was illegal and that caused some more problems. I should be better mentaly by end of next month at the latest.

    As for anime and manga(gotta keep my post somewha on topic not like this is well the site i was reffering to above) anyone else here really like Isekai no Sekishi Monogatari?

    LOL ok just get ready for a very old school style series. It wasdone by the guy who did the tenchi muyo series as well as dual. It's alot of fun though most episodes are more comedy/plot oriented while the battle episodes a fairly few but so damn badass. It's sorta aced like the original tenchi ovas if you've ever seen em.

    Ya, I really liked it as well. I liked all the characters and the high quality animation. My only complaint was how long a gap there was between each episodes release date. It'd be awesome if they made a series out of it, I'd watch it for sure.

    It would be cool but i want the guy to malke a dual sequal first. Then maybe continue this series and after that finish off GXP. Sorry but i wanna see more Zinv/Genbu(depending lanquage either on is correct in america zinv was known as genbu while in japan zinv) and Idol wieldin gravitic god weapon powers.

    edit also as long as it didn't go the way of tenchi universe and in tokyo.

    I watched the first episode of Isekai no Sekishi Monogatari. I liked it, but didn't bother following up with the rest for some reason. I might jump back to that after I finish Kanon 2006 and Ergo Proxy.

    It's pretty fun and plays out like old tenchi series in that it's mostly comedy and then a few bits of SUPER BADASS action. Hrem oriented of course but it;s nicely paced. Story wise it;s nigh identical in more thana dew areas to My-Otome only ya know done damn well. SO be ready for some school comedy and harem stuff ala lets say zero no tsukaima and later on around episode 7 he goes fucking badass and then some more relaxed stuff fo an episode and then the war starts and well ya get the idea. Basically it's a nice mix but majoring in comedy.

    all this talk about Tenchi makes me want to go back and watch it again. One of the first animes I ever watched, and I don't think I ever finished GXP or In Tokyo... should really get on that. I also love that one of the first animes shown on network television not for little kids was a harem anime... good old America

    LOl yeah i was about 10-13 when it first aired and at the scene where ryoko pulls of ayekas towel i was going WTF for two reaosn 1) is how ayeka had a swimsuit on and 20 is how she said she wasn;t an exhibitionist like ryoko and i knew what that was so i was going wat but she's got a swimsuit on. Ahhh good old censoring. Anyways what really sucks is i'm gonna hafta rebuy classic once funi rereleases it cause my copy is sadly a bootleg. Though with that bootleg and my download of monogatari i have ALL of the etnchiverse covered right down to even owning the pretty sammy and mihoshi specials on dvd as well as Mgical Project S. Best part othe than the movies,monogatari(which you CAN'T get legit in the US) and classic series all are legit.
    As for GXP yeah it ends pretty damn well say hello to a new Zinv from dual. Also tokyo really is among if not THE worst of the tenchi series.

    Oh and another funny bit of it being aired on CN was that it was not only highly censored and cut down to fit in their time slot but also that it was an OVA in japan thus not even MADE for TV. Though it WAS later aired in the vhs/dvd version here on international channel/AZN. Sadly AZN is gone now and i miss it same for international channel.

    you really dont like that thing do you...

    anyways someone go read EDEN NO ORI so im no longer the only person here to do so, some of the things in this manga are just so brutal , however a lot of the ways the characters react within it are all mostly believabel

    Buy YEAAAH about that i own as in have BOUGHT over 10k worth easy with amnga i'm easily over 18k if not 20k. I'd post pictures if i wasn;t scared i'd kill he server plus well they're always oudated since i pretty much always have at LEAST 3 series on preorder and even more being ordered plus the fact that i tend to buy at LEAST 100 dollars worth of manga month. Though this onth MIGHT be an exception but tha would just be cause of the 3DS.

    EDIT my backlog alone of purchased series i should add is over 60 series i havn;t seen includin ones i HAVE seen before but not on retail dvd o on blu ray then it's over 80. And remeber that's just my backlog.

    Have you watched macross zero yet?...it is linked with zero through the legend they even have an ep in frontier where they are making a film based on zero.

    And has anyone seen Tokyo magnitude 8? given whats happened in Japan i think the anime was a little lacking.
