    By "messed up" I mean when something shows things your generally never shown. For example, usually when an army pillages some place in some story somehow nobody gets raped. But every now and then there comes a piece of fiction where they're not afraid to say/show/depict the fact that people are raped, that is what it actually means to pillage.

    Also if you want nightmares Eden of the East has a person referred to as the Johnny Hunter. Now if that isn't nightmare fuel I don't know what is.
    Make sure you don't read a certain manga to do with a certain panda...

    If anybody gets this you are a sick bastard, lol.

    How about the "Neckless" (the one in Nurarihyon no Mago - reading the manga atm; the anime's too slow LOL)?

    Do watch shiki,
    second half, as twisted as twisted can be, and i mean a massacre, holding blodied ax in one hand and eating onigiri with other

    You get your your loli with higurashi, they are even cute, so much you'd want to take them home (i know someone who does...), but the thing is
    they all die, several times, and in the most brutal ways...

    Speaking of Johny hunter, she makes it easier to chop it off, she makes it stand out first...

    No it not bad, its a masterpiece, good political and economical history, strong cast, beautiful music and occasionally action too...

    Im loving the second season...

    Edit: Anime of the day
    Nurarihyon was fairly nice, watching the onmyouji fight, specially Yura, she is really strong and uses cool techniques...
    Ikoku meiro, great episode, very lighthearted, Alice and Yune looking fantastic, even more than usual...
    YuruYuri, i spent 24m laughing hard, the entire episode was a riot...
    And whats more interesting is the fan service amounts to ZERO, there are no high school comedies on this level anymore, except maybe K-ON, YuruYuri doesn't rely on fanservice to sell...

    I like the music, the voice acting, and the story in general but for a 2007 anime they can do better with the animation, pacing can be a bit faster (or its just me spoilt with good paced anime), action can be more refined, and my last criticism is that the cast, while distinct, the sheer number of people involved every so often makes it somewhat confusing at times.

    Overall, I would recommend it to people who like shoujo, new otakus, and people with nothing better to watch at the moment. People who have lined up better things like Bakemonogatari, Code Geass, Madoka should watch those first.

    "Guro" is short for "Ero Guro Nansensu", which is engrish for "Erotic Grotesque Nonsense". So your reaction is the correct one.
    Also the ending to it is amusing. They all become one big happy family, lol.

    I've seen most of them and the ones I haven't seen seem boring/fan service oriented.

    Edit: A fail on my part.

    I just remembered something very interesting, very original, it is called Noiseman, and you can check it out in youtube, although english subs arent available there
    Part 1 http://youtu.be/mJS6h1XOxpo
    Part 2 http://youtu.be/7S6qp0fzwdc

    It is only 14m, but it was produced by the renown studio 4c and music by Yoko Kano and staff that has had major roles in the production of such hits like Akira or ghost in the shell...

    I bet no one here has even heard about such anime...
