I have seen a lot of animu, but Gunslinger Girl takes the cake.

The animation is subtle, the colors are drained, as if to instead of enhance reality it is meant to make it more real. The character art is well done and not over the top in any way, and not to mention the awesomeness of the basic premise of the show.
The plot development ranges from "This is meant to show that children shouldn't be put in these situations" to "Maybe this would work.."
On top of that, there seems to be a great balance of 'moe' and 'action'.

There are moments where you will chuckle, and moments where you will cry. The rest are either fuzzy feelings or adrenaline.
