I finished Le Chevalier D'Eon. That was quite good. I'm still a little put-off by the changing loyalties and I'm not sure how well that was really developed in the story, but in terms of the feel and ambiance, it's the sort of thing I very much like. I also liked the occult aspect although the rules that applied to using the power were never very clear, but I can live with that.
Right now I'm watching Baccano and I'm really tempted to bail on this one. It's extremely confusing and some of the characters are way too over the top for me. I know that it's supposed to be several intertwined stories but it doesn't have a pace or rhythm to the plot. I'm on episode 3 at the moment. How far do I go before I decide it's not for me?
What do you think of Chrome Shelled Regios, Mushi-shi, Basilisk and Burst Angel? I think Elfen Lied is top contender also.
