@Kanon78 -- Infinite Ryvius looks cool. I like that kid's spandex. Thank you very much!

@TinyRedLeaf -- Thank you for the Ghibli suggestions, they both look wonderful. Anything featuring a pig gets an automatic watch from me, and Only Yesterday looks particularly good. The background information is great to know too, thanks again -- and I'll be sure not to miss that sunrise.

@Kafriel -- I've seen Death Note and FMA, though I didn't bother with the second season. (There's a handful of other stuff I've seen and didn't list because I'm lazy and inadequate.) But Casshern SINS caught my eye months ago and I never got around to it -- I love its old school look. I'll add it to my list, thanks. Glad to hear you're following Monster too -- it's all kinds of awesome.

This looks like a good time. Will definitely watch; many thanks. :>

I don't have a problem with fanservice, except when it's gratuitous or it detracts from the plot -- which, imo, was the case with Elfen Lied. I didn't hate the anime, but I think I read too many reviews and was expecting something else, I guess. The fanservice was far from the only problem I had with it, but it sounds like the manga might be closer to what I expected -- especially if there's some semblance of a plot and it's not so damn cute all the time. I might check it out later -- thanks again.

In Higurashi there really are only two* lolis, and one of them is definitely not what she seems. Every other major character is either an adult or a teenager. The story does get lighthearted at times, but that only makes the depravity and darkness hit that much harder later on.

Spoiler for spoilery!:
Spoiler for kya~:

Higurashi still seems intriguing, but I think I might wait a while before I decide on this one. Chances are I'll end up checking it out when I've depleted my growing list of series to watch.

Thanks again to everyone for all of your awesome suggestions!

Boogiepop Phantom is my all time favorite anime. It's a mind-screw.
Perfect Blue also, a mind screw.

If you like Honey and Clover I'll recommend Maison Ikkoku.

Fullmetal Alchemist is pretty thought provoking. (Both the first series and the current one)

Cross Game is currently airing, and has a lot of the baseball nostalgic air about it. (Plus a pretty big twist in the first episode)

Chrono Crusade is a possibility, not sure how you'll react to it, but it's certainly a little bizzare with plenty of, WTH?? moments.
