i'm new here and somewhat new to anime. i watched evangelion a while ago and absolutely adored it..but it wasn't until i watched boogiepop phantom that i completely and totally fell in love with a series!
now i'm looking for some more anime that i might also enjoy to that same "OH GOD I LOVE IT!!" extent. lain was suggested to me, but something about it wasn't as captivating as bp and eva. same with paranoia agent and ghost in the shell (although i seem to enjoy the series more than the movie?). on the contrary, fullmetal alchemist the movie was fantastic, but the series seemed to drag a bit.
it's not that darker anime appeals to me either..i've seen hellsing and thought it was only "okay." same with vampire hunter d and blood.
i think i will greatly enjoy bleach and pet shop of horrors from the manga i have read, but bleach hasn't come out yet (?) and i can't find psoh.
and i bought the entire ayashi no ceres to be VERY, VERY disappointed. apparently, i am not a romance fan.
this is probably confusing! but is there anyone that can make some suggestions for anime i might enjoy? that was: philosophical, not romance-based, and not trying too hard to be "dark." ..i think.
thanks a million!
