it sounds like you did not find anime with interisting story ... then you found death note but dropped it ? Well thats kinda hard to come by .. but you might check out my anime top vids[posted here] ... since my first priority for anime I watch are story&characters (which exclude perv stuff] no real focus on romance ....GibbGeralt said:The only Anime that ever kept me interested was Elfen Lied. It had some of the major presentation qualms i've always had with anime (pervy fanservice, weird facial expressions etc.) but the concept of the story was terrific, and the themes were really deep. The theme song was fucking hauntingly beautiful aswell.
I've tried getting into a few that i can't remember the names of, and they bored me to tears. The only one i remember was Deathnote, which had an interesting concept, but soon lost me as soon as they turned the protagonist into a mustache twirling, sociopathic hypocrite within the first few episodes. The maniacal laughter got so old; i'd expect to see such a character as an Evil Wizard in a 90's D&D game.
Yeah, i haven't had the best experience with anime. But i don't regret watching Elfen Lied, i thoroughly enjoyed that one.
