Coppelion looks promising - just watched the first episode. Anyone else following?
Seems like a fancy trend.
Steins;Gate is quite possibly my absolute favourite anime.
BTW if anyone wants OP OP then check out things like the Tenchiverse(OVAs and Dual specifically as well as Isekai aka Geminar)...
Then there is Ichibasn Ushiro no Daimaou, Needless, Hellsing(I suggest Ultimate), Aesthetics of a Rogue Hero and MANY others...Give me time and I can likely find more from my shelves alone....
As for why drain has become so popular it's probably because it's the new it thing...Every so often we get an "it" thing be it settings, power/character types and so on. Besides not half as common as some other things have been.

Oh and add Legend of Legendary Heroes to that list of OP as fucking hell protagonists...Then Slayers with Lina Inverse.
ok, guys I NEED some anime to watch after a very long time not watching one. Being unemployed grants too much free time
I've watched (in no particular order):
Fairy Tail, Death Note, Cardcaptor Sakura, Pokemon, Digimon, Ao-no Exorcist, Yugioh, Sword Art Online... I must have watched more, but I can't bring them up atm, it's rather late.
I generally like:
Anything magical/magey, card games, mages, some humour, drama, the friendship concept. I'd also be very open to horror and dark themes.
I generally don't like:
Futuristic stuff when the whole thing is based on such a theme, meaning that if the story itself has nothing to do with the post-modern etc theme while the setting is in it, I got no prob. Pure romance animes (I am on the edge about that one, since I haven't ever watched any because I got this negative predisposition of thinking about them being a waste of time somehow... it's automated, don't judge me).
What I would like to watch is something magey, with romance involved (think of something like fairy tail, where the romance is constantly dropped for example). I'd like to instead watch some development on the subject and not 176 episodes of Gray not getting that he's liked by Juvia.
Then harem wise Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou(ok more sci fi fantasy hybrid but it has a drill breathing dragon and a demon lord who bears him in a brawl) and Aesthetics of a Rogue Hero.
Also there is Campione, Soul Eater, Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles(related to CCS), Orphen, Negima, Escaflowne, Full Metal Alchemist, Log Horizon which is airing right now, provides you don't mind some Yaoi stuff there is Kyo Kara Maoh
Oh Nabari no Ou should work as should Tales of the Abyss....
Tower of Druaga and the Legend of Legendary Heroes as well LOL.
Oh and in the sci fi fantasy vein look into Broken Blade...More fantasy then sci fi...
Shakugan no Shana
annnd those should keep you going for awhile LOL.
Oh almost forgot Problem Children Are coming from another world aren't tjey.
I found the last one (Little Garden?) yesterday and started watching it. Seems generally nice! Thanks for all the recommendations. Will be sure to check them out. Could you please be so kind to provide me with a very good watch online anime site for personal use? I'm getting rather tired of the bad quality in randoms.

Also i noted that Baccano! and Durarara was not on your list. I can wholeheartedly recommend those two (Baccano! more so).
