    Arrrgh... since the other one was years old and was merged into this one, it ended up being tons of pages of junk posts. Starting over now.

    Post here with anime you don't remember and want to identify.

    Well I guess I'll start off.

    I'm not even sure this was an anime but the mental image sure seems like it.

    Character (probably girl) floating backwards spinning a weapon (probably a sword or two-sided knife) using it to deflect a barrage of something (either solid or "energy-shots"). At least a couple graze her (like leg and arm in typical anime-style). I wanna say it's something like a Fate/Stay Night setting (kind of grainy dark atmosphere), but I can't recall at all.

    That's pretty super-vague. Is it an older animation style? Would you think it was something aired in the 80's, 90's, or 00's? Fate/Stay Night was set in a modern period with fantasy themes, is it similar to this or closer to something like Claymore which is set in a medieval/fantasy setting? Any further thoughts would help tons..

    Like I said, I'm not even sure it's an anime (might be from a game). However, the image in my mind would definitely put it in the '00s, not '80s-'90s. I can't really recall much else (thus why the description is still the same after a couple of months).

    That sounds a lot like Busou Renkin. I recall a couple scenes where Tokiko used her blades on her legs to reflect projectiles. Don't know what other anime it could be, Busou Renkin really stood out in my mind when you described it.

    OK, other two possibilities I can think of, and really not too sure on them since I haven't seen them myself in quite a long while, are All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku & Trouble Chocloate.

    Hmm, could be. It's been a LONG time since I've seen Busou Renkin, but I can see Tokiko in that scene in the reddish demolished building background at the beginning. I'll have to look into that.

    The only other things that come to mind are Fate/Stay Night, Tsukihime, Touhou, and VPM. And I couldn't put it down in any of them. In fact I think I mentioned to Roxas that I wasn't even sure when I first thought of the scene if it was a made up scene in my head of Sakuya or Rider.

    Ive posted this one before but ive now got a few extra details and there have been some new mebers so they might know

    Story: Interplanet war, invading army attacks planet. Boy discovers big mecha and somehow ends up fighting for his planet, later on his friends join him and the also become mecha pilots. Later on the serries he find or is given a knife thing that allows him to call forth this legendary uber powerfull mecha which seems like he is the only one who can drive it and of course badguys wan't it.

    The mecha design are along the same lines of Gundam and ZOE or a mix of the two.

    It was aired in Malaysia during 1997-2000 so im guessing that would be quite simmilar to the time it was aired in japan. Was aired on cartoonnetwork i think or one like nickalodeon as i didn't watch the malaysian channels.

    I'm pretty sure this is taken from Blood, not sure if it's from the original movie or Blood + though.

    Mines really vauge.

    I was watching it about 5 months ago and only caught a little bit of it.

    What I got from it was...

    They weree students and somethinwas going on between this guy and girl.
    The guy went to the school at night time and in one of the classrooms was a giant creature about as tall as the room, it was brown and looked very demonic...

    after that my memory fades out, but i would really like to know what its called if anyone can figure it out becuase it was very interesting from what i saw.

    -thanks.

    That is Blood+, that is part of the 3rd op.

    @Skeleton King.

    Hmm, was the creature trying to attack them, or was it just chilling in the room?
    If it was trying to attack them, girl at first, then boy soon after, then it might be one of the first episode of Blood +. If it is not that, then I have no clue.

    *edit* This was the best image I could find of the Chiroptera(monster).

    Boy, girl, man, it was attacking everything. Check out the first episode of Blood+ because I really think that is the anime you are describing.
