Don't usually like Anime. Too cutesie tootsie. Only one I've watched all the way through is Death Note. But I've been watching Cowboy Bebop recently. About 4 episodes in. Very impressed so far.

Well, of course he has fans, he has plenty of fans. Naruto is in what's called The Big Three, isn't it? I'm just not of one of his fans. Shonen Jump is geared more towards adolescent teenagers, which I'm not. The material isn't written well as something such as seinen manga. Also I'm not waiting around 3 fucking years for one fight, which maybe a letdown anyways. That's ridiculous in of itself. Popularity doesn't equal being the best. As I said before, I understand why the show is popular. It is action manga/anime. That never ends and fans will eat up no matter what. Okay, I get it, but in long run, will people say it's worth watching 400 plus episodes or reading 500 plus chapters of Naruto? I don't think so. I'm not saying every long running series sucks, but obviously some can't go that long duration of time.

I concur with Omega Vik completely. I know teens that are complete Narutards. I also know teens that are Naruto's typical age group that stopped reading that just couldn't wait. It isn't long in an epic series kind of way. No one is saying Naruto isn't successful but it is almost becoming the Twilight of anime.

Most recent anime I've watched was Gankutsuou which was my third time watching the full series. I still love it. It deviates a lot from The Count of Monte Cristo but it is still recognizable in a good way. Pretty much the first part of the book is gutted and the setting is changed into the future and space. The count is a lot more ruthless to the point where at times he reminds me of Alucard from Hellsing. Certain character fates had been changed for the worse and some the better. For once I am a fan of CG though it can get gaudy.

Found out that Fios is cancelling the Funimation channel.

Oh and when I scroll down fast I keep thinking Omega's avatar is Tom from Toonami.

Plenty of mature and dark anime, it just isn't the current direction of most popular anime shows. Black Lagoon, Ninja Scroll, Akira, Fullmetal Alchemist (doesn't matter which one), Blood: the Last Vampire, Vampire D Bloodlust are just some of dark and/or mature shows.

moar. Downloading Black Lagoon right now. I tried Fullmetal Alchemist (not brotherhood). It's not bad, but it hasn't really given me a reason to keep watching. Got like 4 episodes in I think.

Give FMA a chance. You'll enjoy it.

Here are some more: Berserk, Battle Angel, Ghost in The Shell (the movie), Serial Experiment Lain (it's a mind fuck of a series), Boogiepop Phantom, Black Jack, Hellsing Ultimate, Gantz (although I didn't care for it that much), Now, Then, Here, and There.

I wouldn't say Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Umineko no Naku Koro ni or Another :P are cutsie either, more like psychological horror or something like that, there is some blood, but not like it's a slasher show, they shows just put up this tension that just gives you the creeps, that and you never know when a character will snap and go fucking crazy.

To be fair in the beginning of Higurashi it is cute then it turns into a sad cycle of death and gore.

I'd recommend Baccano, Gantz, Elfen Lied and Basilisk. Oh and Neon Genesis Evangelion which is the anime that defined mind fuck.

The dying cat is probably in the OVA's, but since I haven't seen in a long time I can't say. I just remember how dark that show is.

Eh, Higurashi, I never cared for, murderous moe characters isn't scary or fun.

Evangelion is one I forgot to mention. I've heard The tv series and End of Evangelion really put people into depression. That never happen to me though, although I think it's a great psychological series.

Oh, Rei Ayanami ftw.
