Ok, so my brother just started to get into Anime, he used to watch all the old dark Manga videos, loved them - always been a fan of the comics too.
He watched Naruto recently and has loved it (though, wasn't greatly impressed, some parts of the series he wished were different).
He wants to find other Anime series to watch.
He likes fight scenes, especially sword fights. Gore and well animated fighting, sweet effects. He likes characters with energy (like can play with energy balls and stuff), decent story line - not cheesy at all, but something you can really enjoy watching. Odd creatures maybe.
No like female magical characters or anything.
He would like some recommendations, if series you enjoy contain any of the above or you may think he'll enjoy watching it, please list them and places to watch them.
