Interesting Anime

These are the anime that I've come across that I would recommend to others. All of these I have rated 3 stars or higher.
1 07-Ghost image

Magic, pretty boys of all ages, super nazis, Draco Malfoy in anime form... a cute little pink creature that I want as a pet. This anime has it all. I just wish the ending hadn't been so "meh". Definitely worth a look.

Japan has a thing about girls saving guys from death, and then forcing them into immortal contracts. But this one deals with some pretty supernatural BS, and I really need to find time to watch the second season, because this one ends on a bit of a cliff hanger. 

3 Ah! My Goddess image

This is the beginning of a much larger franchise. It's got goddesses, demons, one poor guy that just wants to work on his motorcycle, and angels. This is definitely for the 20-something male dreaming of settling down with a nice girl (even if she is an all powerful goddess).

I have to admit, this anime wasn't the easiest to understand, so I recommend watching the movie and the OVA that are attached to it. It's melancholy, kind of supernatural, and has pretty good artwork. 

5 Air Gear image

This anime takes extreme sports to a whole knew level. Imagine someone created super-powered skates, and then immediately, people turned them into weapons. That's like Tony Hawk and COD combined. It's the teenage boy's dream, right?

I wouldn't recommend this for someone that hates non-linear storytelling. But if you can handle the story jumping timelines and protagonists, this one has a whole lot to offer. There are so many little hidden gems in this anime. 

7 Black Blood Brothers image

I'm kind of sad that Group TAC went backrupt, because this anime is actually pretty good. It's got vampires, revenge, adventure, the works. It's highly underrated in my opinion. 

8 Black Lagoon image

This is probably the most high-octane anime I've ever seen. There are very few spots where the anime slows down, and even those are filled with tension. It's probably ever white-color workers dream to say "screw the rules, I'm becoming a pirate!" and this anime shows why that is a dangerous idea. 

9 Blue Exorcist image

I would definitely recommend this to the teenage/younger 20s crowd, and anyone who likes a good shounen. The interactions are interesting, the cast is really diverse, and it's got some good comedy. I also have a thing for devils, so that's why it's here. 

10 Chobits image

This anime is kind of polarizing. Either you really like Chobits or you can't stand Chobits. There is some middle ground, but not a whole lot. I personally, love the stories in Chobits, because it's not just Chii and Hideki's stories being told. There are some parts that aren't explained very well, but overall, I found it be an interesting anime. 

11 Claymore image

A battalion of blonde, female super soldiers? What is to not love about this anime of action, horror, and so many emotional bits. I mean, for an anime about monster girls, this sure does like to touch on human issues. 

12 Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion image

If you haven't watched this, go watch it. I don't care if you don't like mechas, this is a beautiful game of chess. And don't stop with this one because the second season is considered the better season. 

13 Dantalian no Shoka image

This one has a very interesting concept. I wish they had explored the concept a little more, but with the short episode count, the studio did pretty well. There is some comedy, plenty of action, and it's an all-around enjoyable watch. 

14 Darker Than Black - Kuro no Keiyakusha image

This anime intrigued me because of the creativity of the contracts. The concept of powst-apocalyptic Japan being terrorized by super beings isn't new, but this anime definitely gives it a fresh spin. It has a sequel that I have yet to watch, but I've heard mixed reviews about it. 

15 Durarara!! image

While this anime does do a LOT of advertising for other animes, it also has a cast of unique and often very strange characters. There is a reason this anime has spawned the multitude of sequels that is has. It's quirky, it's funny, and the stories all knit together in creative ways. 

16 Eden of the East image

We must make Japan GREAT AGAIN! Too much? Well, that't the concept behind this anime. Several individuals are given a great deal of money and told to find away to make a better Japan. Their ideas on how to improve Japan vary quite a bit. The only downside is that this anime ends with a lot left unanswered, so you will need to watch the movies to get the ending.

Do not let the frequently naked characters fool you, this anime will put a blood-stained handmark all over your brain. The storyline is actually pretty decent, dismemberment aside, and I found the characters to be really interesting.
