Hi, I'm looking for a new anime to watch. I like it more on the serious side, don't get me wrong but I'm not really into that school-girl-boy-theme or magical-cute-girl. I enjoy more of the psychological and thrilling stuff, gore/blood or horror elements are okay too.
I'm not a total anime-pro, so please don't go off on me for having a certain taste:laugh:

Here are some I've already watched:
Ghost in the Shell (favorite anime/movie, great story, themes, animation)
Attack on Titan (great animation, story, characters)
Death Note (great and absolutely thrilling)
Cowboy Bebop (funny and cool)
Steins;Gate (different, but entertaining)
Psycho-Pass (reminded me of GitS)
Afro Samurai (story is okay, cool animation/characters)
Hellsing/Hellsing Ultimate (okay, watched it for animation and gore^^)
ElfenLied (okay, watched it cause everyone told me it is great)
Eden of the East (okay, kinda slow, had hoped for more^^)
Neon Genesis Evangelion (okay, but not as great as everyone says)
Samurai Champloo (okay, could've been more thrilling)
Black Bullet (okay, but too rushed and not that exciting)
Another (okay, great atmosphere)
Gantz

I've tried:
Code Geass (someone said it's like Death Note, but I'm not really into Mecha/Gundam, animation/design is not my type)
Darker than Black (okay, but lost interest)
Kill la Kill (everyone says it's great, for me it's too exagerrated, didn't like the animation style)
Black Lagoon (was interested in the mercenary-theme/characters, but it's the worst I've tried so far^^)
Ergo Proxy (liked the 1st episode, but the rest is kinda slow and boring for me)

Right now watching:
Ghost in the Shell Arise (cool, not as cool as the first 2 seasons, but still cool :))
Tiger & Bunny (it's okay .. kinda funny :))
Zankyo no Terror (absolutey great so far, love the animation style, characters and the whole atmosphere etc. :) BIG HOPES !!^^)

Some ppl told me Higurashi and Mira Nikki are some good animes, what do you think ??

THIS. Tokyo Ghoul is currently airing and really damn good. Judging from your tastes, you should appreciate it. Also, Btooom is really good. Or at least, I really liked it.

Not a genre set I'm good with but I'll try


Basically including non-school setting with serious nature

Fate/Zero
Monogatari Series (Bakemonogatari, Nisemonogatari, Monogatari Second Season) <- Haven't seen but j believe it fits your requirement
Madoka Magica (magical girl but dark, tragic story )

I just recently finished the manga ;;; I didn't expect it to be this good.

I think you might be like Puella Magi Madoka Magica (cute magical girl), Fairy Tail ( magic)

The anime is a little bit of a let down though.

I don't really like the time skips and how they don't exactly explain everything as clearly. On this one I would have to say the manga was definitely a lot better.

As I said, I'm NOT really into that magic girl/highschool-stuff.
Nevertheless, thanks for answering, samie. :)

I think I will give Tokyo Ghoul a try. Does anyone know where I can watch this show uncensored ??
Monogatame-Series sounds weird, but maybe it's worth to check out.

Thanks again for your quick answers.
Cheers.

You can't find Tokyo Goul uncensored, and Madoka Magica isn't a cute, childish, magical girl anime. It's a dark story and is usually referred to as a "twist to the magical girl genre".
