  • Mermaid's Forest - A dark and twisted tale about the evils that men might do in quest for immortality. Just when you think you've seen the worst, you'll discover that there are depths yet to be plumbed. This is seriously messed up. Curiously, it is by Rumiko Takahashi, the creator of Ranma 1/2, Urusei Yatsura, Inu-Yasha and others. It proves that she can create something very serious and deep when she tries.
  • Fullmetal Alchemist - Lots of fun, lot of action, lots of really enjoyable characters. Just to top things off it even has a good bit of its own brand of philosophy. Not a bad mix, it is light and fun with enough seriousness to keep me coming back for more.

If you're looking for an action / samurai show, try out Peacemaker Kurogane. It's a bit more of a comedy at times, but the fight scenes are pretty awesome when they do happen. As for dark: Monster is awesome. It's not samurai related at all, and is more of a drama / thriller / detective story, but it's truly a terrific and oftentimes haunting series. Not sure why but I think about episodes of it long after I've seen them.

And, of course, I agree with the others that posted before me. Naruto is tremendously good at times, and Full Metal Alchemist can go from funny to traumatizing within seconds. When it goes dark, you feel it.

A good one thats not licensed yet is Peace maker Kurogane its in the samurai genre and its a good watch throughout. Lunar and some other groups released this so finding it is fairly easy.

A dark anime to watch thats been suggested is Mermaid's forest, I think its season 2 for a series called Rumic theatre, though I havn't seen the 1st and have no idea if its anything to do with mermaids forest (I don't think so as mermaids forest gives you all the details in the series and the story seems like it starts from that season anyway) but they are both available for download might as well check them both at the same time.

And my favorite anime right now to watch thats action packed is shadow skill tv (the ova's are licensed I think) but the sereis is not check it out the release from the group is at ep 23 out of 26 so not long off to the end I highly recommend it.

Cheers
Rob
