Best Horror, Shounen, Seinen, Shounen Ai,Sports, Adventure, Weird anime last 5 years?

Hey, these are the genres I enjoy, and to be honest, I've almost avoided checing out new anime because the quality in production of the anime has in general dropped a lot, a long with the subbing qualtiy of many fansubbing groups, however, I feel like I should check out newer shows from these last 5 years.

I have watched some shows, like Giant killing, watching Shiki now, and I really enjoyed stuff as Hakaba Kitarou and Moyashimon ("weird" anime as I call them -- can't really place them). I also really like stuff like Loveless... From the last season I really enjoyed Rainbow and Full metal alchemist brotherhood, and right now I'm finishing Golgo 13 and started the new black lagoon ovas. Recently finished Darker than black 2 (which let me down a bit, but I finished it just for the sake of finishing).

I know how u felt in season 2 of DTB. Bit of a bummer

For Sports:
Cross Game-Love this anime. 1st episode was already so good. Very sad beginning and it just gets better. Very Satisfying and it has 50 eps.
Wierd:
Bakemonogatari-I love this. This anime is so wierd but good. Its had mysteries of spirits, gods etc. that take over people. This guy helps them. the first girl he helps suddenly becomes his girlfriend. Also it sometimes has these reality pictures for like 5 sec or a screen with just words and no sound or it just says black. I think it had 15 eps.

Highschool of the dead- I just wanted to add this because this is like my favorite anime. Also what other anime that has actual zombies and no superpower stuff? Its like a real crisis. Its a thriller so you will never get bored.

These are pretty new.

Also I have no clue what shounen, seinen, shounen ai is. Explain it and maybe i could help.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I watched Cross game. I have bakemonogatari on my hdd actually, so I guess that's next up
Shounen: Soul Eater, Naruto, Bleach, D.Gray man, Dragonball, etc.
Seinen: animes geared adults/youth that aren't "typical" shounen.
Shounen ai: "gay" anime...

Highschool of the Dead .. real crisis .. what? I highly doubt this is what the OP wants. Look any youtube vid on it and you'll see. Aside from zombies, it's FILLED with fanservice and theres more fanservice than there are zombies. The OP wants shonen-ai so it's unlikely she? wants to see almost naked girls with physics bending boobs with matrix style and stuff like that -.-

If you're gonna watch Bakemonogatari, watch also Katanagatari. From same author but a different story.. something about collecting swords and fighting enemies. It's more talk based than action based though, which means you might or might not enjoy it. But if you watch and like Bakemonogatari, chances are you'll also like Katanagatari.

For horror, try Ghost Hunt, Ghost Hound and Shiki. I'm not sure when the two first ones aired so you might or might have not seen them.

For sports you could try Saki? I don't watch any sports related animes besides this. It's ... mahjong with.. superpowers? Or something. It's quite entertaining. I don't even understand the rules of mahjong but I liked this series a lot.

For shonen you should watch Gintama if you already haven't. With the new season that just started and all, even more reason to start watching it if you haven't. If you don't like comedy however, it may not be your thing. I find it hilarious, and awesome with the action arcs/scenes at the same time.

As for what is airing right now.. Watch Steins;Gate. Seriously, watch it. It's science fiction with time machine related story and it's very interesting. Each episode leaves me anxiously waiting for more and waiting 1 week to get one more episode is painful..

Okay, thank you for the tip here, I've seen Ghost Hunt, Ghost Hound and watching Shiki now
Gintama is soooo long, though. I'm a guy, by the way, and surprisingly not gay, I just found the anime loveless facinating for some reason.

hotd? Shounen is typically for guys but not exclusively (see the examples I made earlier -- and to those you can add One Piece too)

HOTD may be shonen and it may be for guys but that doesn't mean everyone will enjoy series with excessive fanservice. I know I didn't.

I know Gintama is long, but it should not matter. Gintama does not have an ongoing plot. Only arcs that last for few episodes and shorter stories that last just one episode. That's why it's easy to follow and the story doesn't just go on and go on like in Naruto/Bleach/OP.

You should watch first few episodes and see how it goes.. If you like the comedy, as well as action in it, you really should watch it.

I'll post some more suggestions later, can't come up with anything right now lol.

I am currently watching deadman wonderland, I'm not sure if it fits exactly into your description but you said you like horror so...
I haven't watched much but so far the story line is excellent, and i should mention it is an ongoing anime and there aren't much episodes (I think there is around 12 so far) so it is pretty recent but i am enjoying it
