When I'm not watching foreign horror films(with subs!!), watching good bad movies(think Troll2), painting, writing, working, or blogging, I can usually be found scouring for some new Anime. I'm not quite at the Otaku level, but I have started to catch on to some of the Japanese Language simply from watching show. 

     I'll pretty much try to give anything a chance. I like weird and osbscure the most, not that I'm not a big Naruto Shippuden fan as well. Also I love dark stuff that makes one utter the phrase WTF?  I guess you know stuff like Higurashi or Evangelion. The important things I look for in both cinema and Anime- Good Story, Likable Characters(or even ones I hate but are very complex) and production value. The last more of the animation detail.

list of stuff I like at the moment

Hyouka

Evangelion

Mysterious Girlfreind X

Full Metal Alchemist

Toradora

Black Lagoon

Kenichi

DBZ

PetShop of Horror

Kino's Journey

Basically I'm rather eclectic in my anime viewing.

thanks and Im currently watching Konari- I've been watching too many action/horror types and thought I'd watch some slightly shoujo/comedic stuff.

as for recs based on what I saw in a skim of your watched list

I'd say 

Black Lagoon

Hellsing Ultimate OVA's - very action packed with decent story(1st season of black lagoon though)

Chaos Head was the Predecessor to Stein Gate so I recommend that for a horror/head trip. other head trip stuff with decent story- BoogiePop Phantom(I still have to this day no idea wtf happend) Petshop of Horrors, and Perfect Blue

good solid story telling would be Mushishi, Kino's Journey, If you don't mind slightly gory stuff you really need to watch the orginal Berserk series.

I also saw you haven't seen the new Evangelion movies yet either- I'd recommend them -I was hesitant at first, thought the 1st just ok but 2.22 took it in a new direction that left me wondering what would happen next.     Also if you can get past the  main them of Mysterious Girlfriend X(drool) you may like it. or Sankrea(deals with girl zombie)  

I really should write a whole lot more reviews considering I amassed a fair deal of viewing. I'll get on that in the coming weeks

hello, I am horriblengineer, i simply watch and use anime planet to find others animes, but i dont contribute and i feel a gratitude to those who do and thank a member every month at random, thank you for your wonderfull reviews and rec. also i recommend Tonari no Kaibutsu kun, it is currenltly coming out and it has a nice approch to love, instead of "i confess" and it is all smooth from there" it is a clash of desires. also, i wonder if you know any other animes as good as cowboy bebop or stein gate, i also recommend durarara.
