Amuri in Star Ocean

Amuri in Star Ocean

Eighteen years ago, the sun's radiation caused new types of children to be born with special abilities. Amuri Kakyoin is one of these "Adapters" with a very unhelpful trait: her body physically repulses anything that approaches her. Lonely and solemn, Amuri has drifted through life in solitude; but one day, when the spaceship she is traveling on is destroyed, Amuri's luck finally changes; bouncing back and forth between space debris, she finally bounces into Uterus, a medical recovery capsule, where she is joined by a quiet girl and her robotic bunny. Alongside her new Adapter companions, Amuri will help defend the enemy in the skies with her new ability-amplifying suit.

Now, I haven't seen the Demonbane TV series, but Amuri strongly reminded me of watching the Demonbane OVA. Both are extremely bizarre mixes of "comedy" (sort of) and action, with mecha or robots of sorts and various sci fi battles. Each is animated in an especially strange way with weird segues and humor that often isn't funny at all. I strongly preferred the Demonbane OVA to Amuri, but you might enjoy one if you liked the other.

Battle Programmer Shirase

Battle Programmer Shirase

Shirase Akira is a genius hacker who has earned the nickname "Battle Programmer Shirase" (or BPS for short) for his incredible talent. From saving corporations to global security, BPS is always willing to help a hand -- for the right price. But for skills like his, money is not an option, so be sure to have specialized computer parts, sold-out tickets, or huggable life-sized cat girl posters to spare! With BPS in charge, no computer is safe! That is, if he can manage to stop being a complete slacker...

BPS and Demonbane both have a remarkably campy, but incredibly entertaining feel that will have you laughing. The interesting animation helps too! I think you'd like this.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?

If you like animes with dark type of theme, where the main character, a guy, gets his entire life changed and gets a new resolve in life right after he meets that one girl. Code Geass and Demonbane, both have characters that have their entire lives changed and are willing to risk it all, because they have been granted power by the girls they met.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2

Area 11 is still under Britannian rule and the Elevens remain brutally oppressed; what’s more, their saviour, Zero, is nowhere to be found and all of Britannia believes the rebellion is finally over. Elsewhere, having lost the battle, Lelouch sets his sights upon winning the war – but the task is no easier since the Britannian forces have learned some valuable lessons all of their own. Not only have they discovered his identity and captured many of his Black Knights, but they now manipulate the memories of all of his friends. Worst of all, they have taken the most precious thing in his life – his dear sister, Nunnally. With his hatred for the Britannians stronger than ever before, Lelouch must now recuperate his forces and bring their rule of terror to an end.

Read or Die

Read or Die

Secret agent for the British Libraries, Yomiko Readman, has an infatuation with books. When she purchases one of the books that contain the notes for a plan to purge the world of humanity, Yomiko (along with the help of Ms. Deep and Drake) uses her powers of paper manipulation to stop a group of resurrected men from fulfilling the plan.

What's great about Read or Die and Demonbane is the fun, campy, entertaining feel you get from watching them. Whether it's the eye candy animation or the humor, it's a fun watch no matter what. Demonbane and Read or Die are very similar on that aspect, and I think if you liked one, you'd like the other.
