Really cool anime involving a lot of futuristic tech revolving around a world where people's emotions are monitored and if it becomes unstable they are labelled "latent criminals" and taken down by the Public Safety Bureau. The specialised guns they use are badass, definitely worth watching.

The story revolves around Mahiro Fuwa, a teenager whose family was mysteriously murdered one year before and his friend Yoshino Takigawa. Mahiro is contacted by Hakase Kusaribe, the leader of the Kusaribe clan who was left stranded on an unknown desert island by her followers, and agrees to help Hakase in exchange of her help to find out the culprit for the death of his family. Upon learning of his friend's intentions, Yoshino joins him on his quest to stand against the Kusaribe clan who intends to awake the "Tree of Zetsuen" whose power can bring ruin to the entire world.

Several dialogues and plot elements in Zetsuen no Tempest pay homage to the works of William Shakespeare.

The school romantic comedy revolves around a second-year high school student named Sorata Kanda who lives in Sakurasou, the dormitory for problem children at Sorata's school. One day, Mashiro Shiina - a cute girl who happens to be also a cosmopolitan, brilliant artist - moves into Sakurasou. 

Sorata thinks to himself that he should protect Mashiro from the weirdos at Sakurasou, but Mashiro has a surprising secret: she has no idea how to take care of herself. She gets lost if she goes out, and her room is a complete mess. Sorata's dorm mates designate him as the "master" of Mashiro, and thus, an ordinary boy and a brilliant girl must live like "a master and his pet."

Fukn love this show m8. Majorr Pingazzz.

The only way to escape is to 'clear' the game. Death in game means actual 'death' ---- The ten thousand who have logged onto the as of yet mysterious game 'Sword Art Online' using their Nerve Gear have been forced into this perilous death game and are trapped inside. Protagonist Kirito, one of the many gamers, has greeted this 'truth'. He plays as a solo player in the giant castle that is the stage for this game ---- 'Aincrad'. To meet the conditions of clearing the game and leaving this twisted virtual world, he must get through all 100 floors. Will Kirito have what it takes to clear the game, or will he die trying?

really? this anime is broken plot wise, the characters are bland, and this show is relying completely on visuals. Watch Log horizon it's much better

Wouldn't log horizon be more lacking in the plot area than SAO? I watched log horizon before but nvr really got into it since it doesn't really have any risks in the story. They just somehow randomly woke up one day into a game where you can't die or get harmed in reality. So then what's the point of it? They don't even really know what to do in order to get out either so in my opinion there's really no plot in the story at all

Spring, 1998. Recently transferred to Yomiyama Kita Middle School, Kouichi Sakakibara (age 15) gets the feeling something isn't quite right with his class, who all seem to be afraid of something. He finds himself attracted to the strange yet beautiful Mei Misaki, but his efforts to get closer only confound things further. Then there is a horrible accident… What on earth is happening in this place? “Another” is a new kind of schoolyard horror mystery from Yukito Ayatsuji, the standard-bearer of the “neo-orthodox mystery” movement. The original novel was called a “new masterpiece” by its author, and the long-awaited TV Anime version will debut in January of 2012, ahead of the release of the live-action film version in summer. The main staff for the TV Anime version includes Tsutomu Mizushima as director, Noizi Ito handling character design, and P.A. WORKS in charge of production. The staff and studio have a succession of hits to their names, and have formed a fantastic team to tackle this definitive piece in horror Anime.

This psychological thriller is about Yuki, a loner who's not very good with people. He prefers to write a diary on his cell phone and talk to his imaginary friend, Deus Ex Machina – The God of Time and Space. However, Yuki soon learns that Deus is more than a figment of his imagination when he makes Yuki participate in a battle royale with eleven others. The contestants are given special diaries that can predict the future, each diary possessing unique features that give it both advantages and disadvantages. Within the next 90 days, the contestants must try to survive until there is only one left standing. The winner will become the new God of Time and Space

Has some great psychotic characters in this as well as some disturbing romance and some pretty good action too, Yukki finds out that he can't trust anyone

I think people have forgotten that there are actually anime out there that aren't Naruto, Bleach or One Piece..

i'm just gonna point out here, you criticize main stream anime when one piece is on your list and so's fairy tale, which is in my opinion very poor, but hey each to their own, the actual anime you're recommending here sounds promising.

I've watched Guilty Crown, One Piece, Sword Art Online, Naruto, Clannad, Btoom and other animes everyone thinks of as the best. But for me, Angel Beats made the best experience in an anime ever. This is a complete work of art for me, and the world needs more animes like this. Someone please bring this to top 10.

Synopsis


A ruthless arms dealer on a quixotic quest for world peace. A child soldier born into chaotic conflict. Their lives will intertwine as they journey together through the seedy underbelly of the world's arms market.

(Source: FUNimation)

Probably one of the most underrated series of the year. Action's great, characters are interesting, and it's extremely well-researched considering this is about arms dealers
