Well as we all have a deep love of all things Higurashi I thought that maybe our tastes were similar. With that in mind Id like to hear what the rest of you are watching that you believe we here would also enjoy. I have a few series I can name but I'd like to see what the rest of you think first.

Well, as far as what's similar to Higurashi:
School Days (a bit of hentai in there, but totally worth it when you get to the end)
Death Note (psychology of serial killers is fun!)

If you wanna see all the anime I like, check out my profile. Don't feel like copying and pasting. I even color-coded it based on how good they were.

Baccano is pretty good. It just finished recently with 13 eps. It had some gruesome stuff mixed in with some mystery and supernatural. Its a bit confusing at first with all the time skipping and the large cast of characters, but its a good short series to watch. You can find it on Crunchy.

Here's the summary:

Baccano is Italian for noise, but Narita translates it as "stupid commotion." Each of the stories in the series involves several unrelated plots intersecting and crossing each other as events spiral farther and farther out of control. Immortal alchemists, mafia operated speakeasies, and many other elements of pulp fiction mashed together for a world straight out of the movies.

Well, besides the ones already mentioned Elfen lied is really good (has PLENTY of gore)

theres also Black lagoon, its not similar to Higurashi (its about a group of people who steal, kidnapp, and kill for money and stuff) it has alot of guns and explosions. though if anyone decides to watch this i'll start out by saying it doesnt start to get good till about ep 3-5

I recently found an INCREDIBLY good one (though not at all well known so it may prove troublesome to find all the eps) its called Bokurano, its about 15 kids who have to fight 15 aliens, and after each battle they... well i cant give away too much, lets just say there is alot of death (and a great out of this world plot, it may seem a bit bad to begin with but by ep 8 u'll love it (my fav ep lol)

Ive never heard of Bokurano....I'll see what I can dig up.


Edit*

Ive read the manga for this! I never knew this was animated.... It should be pretty damned good.....unless they pull a Gantz....

:O cool, i dont suppose u know any links to the manga? (my usual website is having issues so i cant check if its on there) also, i had to search through like 5 of my best anime websites to find the eps of Bokurano (and even though i found them all, i could only find eps 2-5 in spanish subs) anyway, if it gives u too much trouble i can send u (or anyone else interested) links to some sites, and i'm guessing the manga for gantz was really good but they screwed up the anime?

On a random semi-related note the OP for it is one of my fav's :X the closer I got to the end of the anime the more i liked the OP

It is a bit old, but I suggest you to watch Air Tv, It is very good...

Also, I don't know if the kodomo no jikan anime is a very good adaptation because the manga is very interesting despite the lolicon content...

It's been mentioned before, but Elfen Lied. I LOVE Elfen lied!
Futuristic-ish...but awesome.

Also good, especially simillar to this:
BATTLE ROYALE
Not an anime (yet) but a manga, novel and LA movie.
Basically it's Japan's Lord Of The Flies, only it pwns Willam Golding.

What I like too is Rozen Maiden, The Melencoly of Haruhi Suzumiya, .hack//(Anything), Emma (I'm a romance sap at heart )

Eh.. Well the purpose of this thread is to suggest anime that would interest someone who enjoys Higurashi..... Not every Series youve watched but....whatever.
You enjoy Inu Yasha? Really? I could never get into it.... Its like dragon Ball Z in its recycled Plot... but for girls...
Ex Goku/Inu is living life and doing whatever it is they are doing at that moment. Something happens and Goku/Inu gets his ass handed to him. Goku/Inu trains and or uncovers some hidden ability that only they possess and beats the threat so that everything is hunky dory again. Wash Rinse repeat and toss in a few fillers between threats.......... Now a lot of the time this isnt so Bad. I admit that other Series such as Bleach follow the same formula. The difference is that Bleach does it well and Inu Yasha doesnt but tries to throw in a lame love triagle between a corpse and Dog and a highschool girl to make up for it.....but it sucks...
