Berserk (1997)
My take: If your into action pack animes, then this is a must watch anime. Warning anime is incomplete! Also, the English Dub is decent to watch too.

Synopsis: Gatsu is a skilled swordsman who joins forces with a mercenary group named 'The Band of the Hawk', lead by the charismatic Griffith, and fights with them as they battle their way into the royal court.

My Take: This is one of the best samurai action anime ever! The story is very compelling and visually stunning. Also, note the English Dub isn't that bad.

Synopsis: Himura Kenshin is a vagabond with a dark past and sunny disposition. Not a ronin but a rurouni, he was never a samurai, but an assassin of utmost skill in the Meiji restoration, who in the turning point of the war simply walked away. His travels lead him to Tokyo in the 11th year of the Meiji era, where he befriends a female Kendo master, a former thief, a brawler and a doctor all with their own secrets. Together they fight off the enemies surfacing from the dark past that Kenshin cannot escape.

Black Lagoon (2006)
My Take: Black Lagoon is one those animes you don't know what you're getting into, but after watching it I didn't regret it. Must watch action anime. Also the English dub wasn't that bad.

Synopsis: Okajima Rokuro is a Japanese businessman…in a town full of Japanese businessmen. His normal day consists of social drinking with clients and being kicked around by his bosses. He finally gets a break though, as he’s sent by his company to the tropical seas of Eastern China to deliver a disc…only his boat gets hijacked by a band of mercenaries that were hired to steal it. “Rock” (as he is newly dubbed by his captors) catches the interest of the only female merc “Revy” as she thinks he’s worth a ransom, taking him hostage. However, the disc turns out to be more trouble than its worth, and complicates things both for Rock, and the mercenaries known as Black Lagoon.

My take: although I never played the video game, this anime rock. Its a very good action anime with a great story.

Synopsis : A long time has passed since the end of a massive war between humans and monsters. A new type of energy named "aer" was discovered. When crystallized, this substance became the energy source for "blastia", an ancient civilization's technology that provided a wide array of essential abilities for humanity. Despite it's manipulation, mankind still has little knowledge of what exactly is "aer". On a mission to eradicate a horde of monsters near the town of Shizotania, a group of knights comes across a strange surge of "aer". Yuri Lowell and Flynn Scifo are two new members fresh out of the academy of this knight division. Both are childhood friends who went separate ways, but ended up meeting each other once again while enlisting to serve the Empire.

Elfen Lied (2004)
My take: Elfen is one the most saddening,gory anime I have ever watched. Beware very mature content. But depsite its gore, its is also one of the most compelling drama anime out. If you can handle the gore, bottom line its a must watch anime.

Synopsis: The Diclonius, a mutated homo sapien that is said to be selected by God and will eventually become the destruction of mankind, possesses two horns in their heads, and has a "sixth sense" which gives it telekinetic abilities. Due to this dangerous power, they have been captured and isolated in laboratories by the government. Lucy, a young and psychotic Diclonius, manages to break free of her confines and brutally murder most of the guards in the laboratory, only to get shot in the head as she makes her escape. She survives and manages to drift along to a beach, where two teenagers named Kouta and Yuka discovers her. Having lost her memories, she was named after the only thing that she can now say, "Nyuu," and the two allow her to stay at Kouta's home. However, it appears that the evil "Lucy" is not dead just yet...

Black Butler (2008)
My take: Black Butler is a very funny super natural drama anime with with a hint of seriouness. It left me wanting a butler with super natural powers to do my chores around the house. If only I can find one on craig list *sigh*

Synopsis: One of the noble families of England - Phantomhive, has a butler, Sebastian Michaels. He has unquestionably perfect knowledge, manners, talent with materials. martial arts and much more. But for some reason, he serves a 12 year old master...

Hellsing (2001)
My take: Now this anime is how a vampire should be. Hellsing is an all out action vampire anime that does everything right. unike twilight, warning there are no glowing vampires in this anime.

Synopsis : The Hellsing Organization relies on Alucard, a rogue vampire with a really big gun, to defend the British Empire against armies of undead “freaks”. When policewoman Seras Victoria is cut down in the line of duty, Alucard can offers her salvation in the form of his curse. Reborn as the monster’s blood-sucking servant, Seras is trapped between humanity – and her vampire urges.

My take: I would never had thought I could sit and watch an anime about boxing. Fighting spirit is a great anime that compelled me so much about boxing, I signed up and started boxing only to find out I suck at boxing... Thanks Fighting spirit for the beating I received!

Synopsis : Ippo, a timid highschooler, is one day saved from being beaten up by Takamura, a boxer. Enthralled by Takamura's skills Ippo begins to learn boxing, soon finding love for the sport and a drive to challenge the boxing world.

My-HiME (2004)
My take: Its very rare I like drama heavy theme animes, but this anime was that exception. Overall, My-Hime is a great drama action anime with a great story.

Synopsis: Mai Tokiha transfers to Fuka Academy and learns that she along with several other girls at the school are HImes. Initially, the girls face off against monsters and a nefarious foreign organization. But when they learn of their true purpose at Fuka Academy, the girls must fight to save the world and protect what's most important to them.

My take: Bakemonogatari is a Scfi, super natural, drama anime, and warning it can get a little boring at times; however, visually it is one of the best animes I have ever seen.

synopsis: Bakemonogatari centers on Koyomi Araragi, a third year high school student who is almost human again after briefly becoming a vampire. One day, a classmate named Hitagi Senjōgahara, who infamously never talks to anyone, falls down the stairs into Koyomi’s arms. He discovers that Hitagi weighs next to nothing, in defiance of physics. After being threatened by her, Koyomi offers her help, and introduces her to Meme Oshino, a middle-aged homeless man who helped him stop being a vampire.
