My favorite character from Umineko has to be Maria, such a cute and creepy litte girl, what amazes me is that it seems that no one in this show seems to find her creepy, and related to that, the mother/daughter relationship between Rosa & Maria has to be the best in this show
I found the sequel to Darker than Black very interesting Omega Vik, think there's a 3rd one now too this season.
So, I've almost finished Evangelion, quit Hellsing after 5 eps. Anything else I should find an excuse to watch before watching Daethnote?
Currently, I'm kinda mixed on the second season honestly. I'm not really feeling Suou as a main character, honestly. I feel like she was tack on tack to the show to give it a lighter tone, which didn't need to happen. But perhaps, in time, she become interesting. It's a decent show, despite my beef with it so far.
Try some comedies, such as: Slayers, School Rumble, and FLCL.
