    That's Gantz. If you like over-the-top sex and violence go ahead and watch it, that's all the show is about really.. I found it to be stupid and silly.

    Hikaru No Go is really good. The concept just screams "BORING" but somehow it totally rules and is one of my absolute favourites ever.

    So, does anyone know a good deep animé with a strong focus on the story, I mean, as in not too episodic where there's too much unnecessary bullshit between all relevant events?

    Death Note is the best I've ever seen, by the way.

    You might wanna check out Basilisk, pretty straight forward as far as storytelling goes, awesome animation too.

    When They Cry = MINDFUCK.

    I watched the first 6 episodes of the Japanese version (named Higurashi) (subbed) and got confused.

    Princess Mononoke pwns hard core, I saw it a few years ago, but I would love to watch it again. I wanna check out spirited away as well, I heard it was really good. Other than that I kind of really dont like anime.

    you should watch every movie he has done they are really good. I'd say you should watch Nausicaa of the valley of the wind next.

    Sprited Away is a fantastic movie. It's definately one of my favourites.

    hell yeah. he makes these kid's movies, or at least they seem like kid's movies, but they have this very bizarre feel...melancholy, uplifting, trippy, and awesome at the same time.

    Nausicaä shouldn't be watched btw, it should be read. BIG fucking difference. The story is totally different and the anime version makes much more sens and has LOTS LOTS more depth and twice as epic. It is my tips for today, you won't find anything near it in terms of reading experiance when it comes to comic/manga books.

    I liked Utawarerumono a lot. Kiddy Grade was also very interesting, with the whole reincarnation theory.

    Oh, and Full Metal Panic was incredible.

    Anyone ever seen Grave of the Fireflies? I was depressed for about a week after watching that movie.

    My favorite Miyazaki film was Princess Mononoke. It was a really interesting take on the negative effects of industrialism.

    I think my favourite Miyazaki is Laputa: Castle in the Sky. I really like the theme and setting. I've always been a fan of fiction dealing with "Atlantis style" lost civilizations. When it comes to Miyazaki I generally prefer the epic adventures to his more surreal tales like Totoro or Spirited Away.
