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. ›››
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 ....
