Something supernatural and psycological
Ok. I'm ready for more anime. :)

I don't want an excact copy of Elfen Lied, but not an every-life-type story. I want something interesting... related to the topic title.

Ghost Hunt: Supernatural and arc based. Not really that violent or anything though.
xxxHOLiC: Also supernatural, and rather episode based with developments along the way.
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni: Violent, rather horrofic, supernatural and psychological. Yeah, I think this might be a good choice if you haven't seen it already.
Narutaru: Don't let the beginning fool you, this along with the currently airing Bokurano are rather psychological anime involving children.
Jigoku Shoujo: Just throwing in another title but this is a episodic supernatural anime.
Monster: A psychological thriller! Not really anything on the supernatural side but yeah.

What's an "every-life-type story" :confused:

Supernatural and psychological would have to be... Haibane Renmei!

crystar 2007-05-25 19:57

I assumed s/he meant every-day-life type of story. Which I interpreted as those episodic anime that focus on the problems individuals face with the supernatural whatever in that show. Like Witch Hunter Robin, Jigoku Shoujo, etc. Well, just a guess anyhow. :D

I believe the more commonly used term would be "slice-of-life".

Either way, I'll toss Mushishi at you.

Reno 2007-05-26 05:36

Hmm thanks. I think I'll try Haibane Renmei first.

Asai 2007-05-26 06:31

Speed Grapher may also be an option.

Reno 2007-05-26 07:04

How many episodes and seasons in Haibane Renmei by the way?

johnthesifu 2007-05-26 07:36

Da capo would be a nice choice :)

Crovax 2007-05-26 10:17

Haibane Renmei is a nice suggestion, but that's to be expected from jedinat. :)

It has 13 episodes, and as far as I know there is only 1 series/season. For this and more info you could have a look at anidb:

Personally the words 'supernatural' and 'psychological' made me thinks of Serial Experiments Lain. Though perhaps it is more technological-supernatural and philisophical-psychological.

(One of those annoying/great animes that makes you think about stuff, rather than just drool with brains in decay-mode until there's an unambigious happy end.) ^_^

Anidb entry:

Try Bokurano or Generator Grawl

Reno 2007-05-26 17:19

By the way I'm loving Haibane Renmei at the moment. I don't think it's very psycological but it's still great. :)

Spoiler for later eps:

Reno 2007-05-28 10:39

I've just finished watching it. Thank you it was lovely ^_^. I didn't cry but I had a tear in my eye....

White Manju Bun 2007-05-28 20:53

Death Note is psychological. I second Ghost Hunt and xxxHolic. Also Ayatsuri Sakon is good but its not done being subbed yet.

Ice Climbers 2007-05-28 22:26

Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni is definitely psychological and supernatural (but very bloody!! Be warned!!)
Nevertheless a great anime though

Reno 2007-05-29 09:47

Hehe Crystar already suggested Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni. Hehe I don't mind if it's violent. But, er, I can't find it on youtube, as well as half of these. :(

Klashikari 2007-05-29 09:57

because they are licensed.
you might try to google them, and see how the editor present them, that should give you extra information, and if it is worthing or not to buy.

I don't know... I mean Elfen Lied's licensed isn't it but I could still find that.

Shana 2007-05-29 19:01

I'm the second Higurashi. It's licensed, so you can find it in an shop ;)
