So this is probably as good a place as any to ask this question. I really like the way anime looks especially really dark, sinister-ass looking anime. But I really dislike melodrama and I assume that most anime is melodramatic (though I imagine I'm wrong). So what is good anime for someone like me?
you should give more specifics; any sort of genre specifically (sci fi, action, etc) or what?
I don't really have a genre I'm particularly interested in per se. I just want it to be 'good'. I guess the genre I'm least interested in are romance stories and if I were to narrow down my tastes I tend to enjoy sci-fi more then anything else. But I'm sort of open to anything.
Steins;Gate is a good recommendation (basically this crazy college student accidentally invents a time travel device); it starts off pretty humorous but it quickly ramps up. It has it's drama but it's totally warranted as well, and all of the characters are fantastic.
@Hailinel: I dunno I've always just heard it's super melodramatic and the ending is terrible
