    Default Looking for a new anime

    I am looking for an anime that is like the following ive seen.

    Chrno Crusade
    Mai-Hime
    Mai-Otome
    Scrapped Princess
    Mahou Sensei Negima

    -Possible plot sequence spoilers-




























































    The type of anime im looking for is like where it starts are all happy go lucky with funny moments and silly characters then takes a roller coaster to hell where things start falling apart and characters die or go insane or immense distress.

    Princess Tutu.

    Seriously -- it only starts out as the frilliest, mahouest mahou shoujo in existence.

    That sounds almost exactly like Shuffle!

    Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, it's more of a horror genre type, but it's pretty wicked and at the beggining it seems that every thing is quiet and peacefull.
    I also recomend Beserk and Battle Royale, but only as mangas, beserk's anime counterpart wasn't bad, but it's honestly just a prelude to the manga. And as far as I know Battle Royale doesn't have an anime (somebody should get on that) just a live-action movie
    Gunslinger girl has the kinda motif your looking for, but it's pretty even keel without too much light heartedness.
    I also recomend Gantz anime, it was just an explosive show with more gore and emotion then almost any other.

    Oh -- how could I forget? Revolutionary Girl Utena. Not that it's sweetness and light at the start, but by the end it -- and half the cast -- are fugbuck insane.

    Nana. Fairly happy at the beginning despite some serious moments, and then things take some seriously depressing turns.

    Gosh, I'm turning into the Cooler of Nana...

    Ayashi no Ceres has a chapter or two of fun... although since things gradually get worse, I'd point that out as an example too. For a shoujo, it's pretty dark.

    To some extent, I'd think of Fruits Basket and Fullmoon wo Sagashite, where extremely happy-go-lucky characters turn out to have some serious emotional trauma that they're running away from, as does practically every character. Still, they're even more typical of shoujo manga, so only read if you really do want messed-up characters. (Because we all know that suiciding by train and watching your mother smile as you die reeeeeeeally makes for a well-rounded person.)

    ...DGM? =D

    I don't know about these, though - they may be shoujo manga, or josei in the case of Nana, but most people are a lot more screwed up than they are in, say, Mahou Sensei Negima - by FAR.
