After thorough analysis of how characters do look (), I began watching Shakugan no Shana. It will take some time to complete, and afterwards, I can watch Oreimo to relax for a bit of fresh air.
I'm planning to continue with Shana too after completing Natsume Yuujinchou San recently. Such a change, right. XD I'm also planning to check Ghibli series and movies by Makoto Shinkai soon.
Just finished Aoi Bungaku. Masterpiece. Psychological anime at its finest (it helps that it using some of Japan's most highly regarded short stories and novels as its source). The animation is gorgeous as well, in addition to superb expressive voice acting and music. 6 episodes have character design by Takeshi Obata (Death note), 4 episodes have character design by Tite Kubo (Bleach), and 2 episodes have character design by Takeshi Konomi (The Prince of Tennis). So you get quite a bit of variety in presentation, however all of it is top notch. Pity it is only 12 episodes long, and doesn't have a US release.
Last night I finished DRRR!!, one of the best anime I have ever watched. In some ways it reminded me of the Monogatari Series; quirky, hip, with uniquely memorable characters, and a deep, multilayered story line. One of the best casts I have ever seen too, with nearly all of my favorite VA's performing major roles. Next I am going to rewatch Bakemonogatari, something I have not done in years. I'll probably rewatch Nisemonogatari and Nekomonogatari too, while I am at it.

Finished Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai last night and i have to say that it is one of the few titles in the last few years where i regret not following it weekly and not watching it earlier. The story is well thought out, both thematically and character-wise and is overall an interesting mix of romance, drama, humor and a simple but important message.
after i finish baka test, i am finishing clannad and then ore-shura
Since Psycho-Pass ended, I have been casually watching Magi, K and The Unlimited - Hyoubu Kyousuke. Now I am looking for a couple of good series to watch. 2nd season of Magi and K are coming out in Fall, so I need more anime to follow till then.
Finished Planetes. The appeal is in its great empathetic characters, primarily its two leads, in addition to a very realistic portrayal of space. It could very possibly be what humanity's real future is like. Though the humor may seem typical for anime, the plot is highly original though.
Well next is Legend of Galactic Hereos.
Finished Clannad... Now I'm watching Bakemonogatari... After that Toradora will follow. :3
Finally I'm finished with JoJo's Bizzare Adventure - a great anime adaptation and I really don't mind if it is running for more than 26 episodes. I'm not sure what I'm going to watch next, but probably I'm going to watch Idolm@ster since I'm currently in the mood for something lighthearted and doesn't need much attention span to enjoy it to the fullest.
Mind game like anime, so what's with Mind Game?
Could One Outs be something for you? I've got no big interest in sports, even less in Baseball, but it felt worth watching. Kaiji is there for the gambling fans, Monster for the nice plot[but who hasn't seen/read it yet...], GitS in all versions[if you missed something yet]. The often mentioned Legend of Galactic Hereos has both mind-games as well as dark moments.
Finished Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT, which was overall slightly better than the first season, finally it's moving somewhere. Tamako Market was such a nice lighthearted trip, all I need is an Kanna special now.
Time to watch Unicorn - 06, bye.
