Re: Anime Recommendations
If you're talking about the demon and magic type shit as being odd, then just check out the anime. It takes place during a part of the story where that stuff is basically non-existent at that point. There is still a little bit, but it's pretty rare. By that, I mean there's three incidents total, I believe. And two of them are really short. I highly recommend it. Honestly, I can't imagine anyone not thinking Berserk is awesome after checking it out.
And awesome. I've seen about half the stuff on your list, and liked most of them. G.I.T.S. being one of my favorites. I'll probably look into everything you've got listed there eventually. Good shit, man. =D
