Ok, /a/, I need more anime. I've watched plenty of anime, to the point I don't see any more compelling anime out there to watch. I've been on anime hiatus for a while now, and would like to come up with some titles I can check out and download.

I've lurked in /a/ pretty much like one at a buffet, but unlike other boards, I could not find what I was looking for. I believe there is a reason for this, but I don't start a flame war.

So, if anyone can help me, that would be awesome.

What I don't want: typical teenage living ordinary HS life then going supernatural. Comedy that ruins dramatic moments. 'Everything will turn out all right' main, brash characters that don't have technique but always win out of sheer perseverance.

What I want: anime with interesting plots. Anime that isn't blatantly predictable. Drama that will make you cry, but not because of silly romance.

Some anime I consider good, ordered by genre:

Action - Gungrave, Black Lagoon, Shura no Toki
Sci-fi/suspense - Monster, Gankutsuou
Drama - KURAU Phantom Memory, NANA, Beck
Fantasy - Juuni Kokuki, Wolf's Rain
Comedy - Azumanga Diaoh, Genshiken

I've watched several titles, so yes, I've seen Evangelion, Death Note, FLCL, etc, etc, and no, I don't like them that much.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.
