As thoroughly disturbed as I was after watching the first 10 minutes or so of this anime, I definitely have to give it my respect for its story content and the feeling of uncertainty that it leaves you after every episode. Many of us have watched shounen anime where the main character has a goal in mind and by sheer willpower or hard work it always works out in the end. But Deadman Wonderland is different, it is at almost the complete opposite end of the spectrum because not everything goes right for Ganta in this series and he's not a strong character, but a determined character... read more
I feel that Highschool of the Dead had a great theme, but due to its short length I didn't feel that it was enough to fully develop the characters and a solid story. The actions scenes I will give an A+, however, if you look at the anime I have given 5 stars, you will notice that in order for me to fully classify this as a great anime it needs develop all elements of it (e.g: story, characters, etc.) in the way that they are meant to be developed. Highschool of the Dead I felt was meant to be a much deeper anime than I felt it actually was.
I know many people compare Death Note to Code Geass and vice versa, and the two series are very similar, but both with their own distinct style and tone.

On the topic of an evil main character (or at least I think he's evil), the most entertaining aspect of this series is the battle of wits that ensues throughout this anime's entirety (SPOILER: Though one of... read more
Code Geass truly is a masterpiece anime due to the uniqueness and lovability of the characters and the depth of the storyline. Unlike Death Note, a very similar anime, Code Geass takes a much lighter tone but as a whole not any less serious. What I find most entertaining about this anime is that both Lelouch and Suzaku are trying to change the world and do the right thing, but must go a route that is not necessarily right. As a result, neither one of these characters can be classified as the true antagonist. It is also interesting when a character's greatest weapon is not his fists... read more
