Bakemonogatari.

I don't know actually. xD That was the first thing that came to mind. The animation is amazing. And I love the story line. Some people say its boring though... I think its fascinating and vibrant.

Level E - It was really funny! The animation is great so are the characters. But it was VERY underrated :(
Gankutsuou - Unique animation, great storyline, and has a very meaningful message. I thought this anime was the best because it has everything from romance, comedy, revenge, and fantasy. I loved it!
Uhm...thats all I can think of now, but will add more later.

12 Kingdoms or Jūni Kokuki.

Incredible, incredible series. Also, the books (not mangas!) are brilliant! Lord of the Rings/Narnia/Game of Thrones feel when you read them.

Has the best of -

- SERIOUS character development (Think the main character is useless and annoying? Just you wait...)

- Characters with real personalities (No forced moe crap or fake cuteness here! *cough Clannad cough*)

- Intense, deep storyline (And interweaving, interconnecting plots.)

- Different storylines and point of view (Focuses on a lot of different characters, their relationships to each other, and their countries.)

- Shows the actual struggles of being a ruler of a kingdom (Despair, anger, murderous plots, failing to do what's right...)

- Political fantasy ( In every possible way.)

- Non-stereotypical characters (None of them fall into a particular category like *cough* other animes.)

- Incredible mythology (Borrows a lot from Chinese mythology.)





Others I'd like to mention are:

Saiunkoku Monogatari
- Somewhat like the 12 Kingdoms, but with a lot of well done romance, and more magic. Also far more funny. Has two seasons, but the first season is far better. Based on a series of light novels, now adapted to a manga. Sadly, it has a HORRIBLE ending.

Revolutionary Girl Utena - Older, but seriously brilliant. Made by the same people who made Evangelion so yup. Expect symbolism, an allegorical and metaphysical storyline - and a lot of brain fuck moments.

Adolescence of Utena - Anime wasn't screwed up enough for you? Check out the movie. I'm not sure what the creators were smoking when this popped into their minds.

Baccano Fantastic stories, realistic characters. Amusing, very well written and so out of the ordinary! Want an anime mafia? This is for you.

Princess Tutu This anime totally deconstructs the magical girl prototype anime - reminds me of Puella Magi Madoka Magica in a way. This anime is funny and cute, but gets darker, sinister, twisted and strange as it goes on.

I like to think that One Piece deserves all the praise it gets. Simply the best long-running anime in existence.

Anyway, I totally agree on the Twelve Kingdoms, Time of Eve and Baccano nominations.

Would also throw in Dennou Coil, NANA, Katanagatari and LOGH.

Daily Lives of High School Boys is definitely the most underrated anime of this year since many people completely looked pasted when I thought it was one of the most funny anime I've ever seen.

Baccano was definitely an awesome show. Hilarious and tons of action, while having good music characters and animation. Plus, Isaac and Miria sneak their way into Durarara!

The World God Only Knows (Kami Nomi). The sales in japan were terrible but I love the show. Finally a protagonist that uses his brain over brawn.

I agree with the Baccano! recommendation. I love that show.

I'd like to add that I think Ergo Proxy is a pretty underrated show.
