    Eeeehhh most of the anime I'm watching gets subbed and released on the day(s) that I would be busy, and not today (although I have watched Mawaru Penguindrum and Fairy Tail already).

    There will be some more good ones, i can assure you, specially the ones running on the noitamina slot, they are always "refreshing"...
    Take guilty crown for ex, i have no idea what i is about, but i do know it has a massive following already...
    Also from Noitamina, keep an eye on un-go, it might be a surprise this fall, i already watched a pv and liked...
    Last exile, huge expectation, those who watched Last exile should know it full well...

    Fall season just started a whole month earlier today, Working!! first episode just dropped out of nowhere just an hour ago and already watched it, the same good old wagnaria for those who watched first season...

    I just hope they can entertain me on Wednesdays and Thursdays, these past two seasons have been terrible at filling that free time, nothing to watch on Wednesdays specially and little to watch on Thursdays if not for horrible subs being fantastic with the noitamina anime...

    Edit: Loved Fairy tail today, didnt expect that development...

    See that? A responsible adult would not have recommended SG.

    I plan to be a responsible adult some day.

    As for the next lap dance, I had to think about it for about 30 seconds. Anything with 'vampire' in the title gets my vote just on principle. Into the 3rd or 4th ep. and I don't have a feel for it yet. I'd say it's equally likely to be average to awesome as it is to be average to terrible. That's not meant to imply there's anything wrong with it so far, it's just that it hasn't given me a reach-around yet.

    edit:
    there are a few things I did roll my eyes at like the initial explanation for breaking a few thousand years of silence and the think about having furries in with vamps. It might work, but it might not and they have to try harder since it's such a well worn idea.

    I personally found Dance in a Vampire Bund to be mediocre.

    If you want messed up read Berserk. It easily has the best dark fantasy world ever portrayed. It frells everyone and doesn't afraid of anything.

    @twilyth: Berserk (the anime) is also available English. Don't worry it's not "messed up", unlike the manga... It's also one of the few anime that I actually re-watch.

    Just read Gunjou. It's a psychological, yuri, seinen manga and now one of my favourites.

    So far every minute of every episode has been funny. Which is a first for me.
    Although Detroit Metal City comes close.

    Yeah, Shiki's so great that I read the manga as well, although I haven't finished reading the manga (haven't read the last 2 volumes yet), but the anime haven't strayed that much to the story apparently.

    I started reading the manga when the anime took a break in late-October to early-November.

    For anyone wondering what "garden of sinners" is, it's Kara no Kyoukai.

    Is Higurashi as entertaining as Shiki?
    I find horror boring btw but Shiki has enough dren getting frelled up and general bad-assery to keep me entertained.

    Higurashi has: Fine comedy, good suspense, and enough torture, horror and gore to satisfy anyone here an example http://youtu.be/5fm5BR-xKUc
    The mysteries are good, there's no knowing what will happen in the next 10 minutes while watching it...
    Also fantastic op http://youtu.be/3hHKmiRwyBU

    That's usually the case with people that like loli/pettanko.
    Cold Storm says thanks.

    Yeah. I don't know if I've seen enough anime to say mediocre, but I did find myself wondering when it was going to start moving along and realized that I was already on episode 9 or something.
    Messed up, twisted, etc is usually a reserved table with my name on it. I'm all about twisted. I do sometimes have an issue with gratuitous violence but it depends. Some things make me bust up. On the show Bones last season, there was one episode where a prisoner is being lead into court and a sniper nails her with a head shot that makes her head disappear into a fine pink mist. I laughed pretty vigorously before it fully registered. I know this because I was a little surprised at my own reaction - if that makes any sense to anyone. So I don't know exactly what factors are involved, but its not the violence per se - at least I don't think so.

    I found a dubbed version of berserk so I'll bump that to near the top of the list.
    When they cry/higurashi is also probably going to be high on the list.

    I don't think I've ever watched anything that caused me to have nightmares. But since I never remember my dreams, who knows.
