I don't really know what to put here so I'll just add whatever.

So I been watching anime since I was young; however, around 2006 or 2005 , I have a crap memory, I started getting more into anime. I recently took a break from anime but now I'm starting back.

I'm a really laid back person and like to chill I'm always up for watching some new anime that I haven't seen or heard of before, main reason I'm here. I really wasn't going to participate much when I first decided to join the site but for some reason I couldn't help myself.

Oh yeah and as you can see some of my personal information maybe vague but that's mainly because I'm paranoid.

I like all types of anime, pretty much open to all genres but I do prefer the slower more relaxing ones or something that makes me think. The more unique the better!

Since you can't tell what my top 5 are from looking at profiles yet I decided to list them here temporarily, might actually end up making a top 10 list.

Kino's Journey

Bartender

Comedy

Pale Cocoon

Diary of Tortov Roddle

I don't know what else to put so I guess I might put some more info later.

Thanks for replying back.  I too like psychological horror which is why I really wanted to like Boogiepop.  The 1st 3-4 episodes I thought were excellent, but I kind of lost it after that.  I didn't like the character designs.  They seemed to generic and I had trouble identifying each character.

Elfen Lied can be placed in the psychological horror genre in some ways.  However, the series which I think you'd love is Higurashi - When They Cry.  By the end of the 1st story arc (1st 4 episodes), you should be feeling quite paranoid and freaked out.  Higurashi also has a great non-linear storyline which provides some answers as it presents new questions.  The animation isn't the best, but I'll take a well-told story over beautiful animation anyday... just like Kino's Journey!

Great top 5 list.  Kino's Journey is an absolute masterpiece in episodic storytelling.  Gunslinger Girl's exploration of the varying fratello relationships, along with excellent animation, makes it a top 10 series for me too.  BTW, there's going to be a second season of GG next year!  And of all the Miyazaki films, Mononoke and Spirited Away are the tops.

The only one I can't agree with is Boogiepop.  I really tried to understand it, but found I was way off when I finished and read a synopsis.

If you liked Kino's, then you should watch Haibane Renmei.  Haibane is about the closest thing to a Miyazaki TV series you'll find... and I think it's even better than all of his movies.  It's an absolutely touching series with lots of symbolism and deep reflection.
