I'm new-ish to the anime market and I need help picking out some decent shows. Most of the time they last 12 episodes before I need to switch to a new show, and it's hard to constantly find a new show every 1-2 days.

I'm not well versed in the terminology either, so if you put a show genre please explain.

I like heart wrenching shows like clannad and h20, harem, and action with a small- medium side of romance. I'm partial to supernatural and sci-fi, and I get tired of everybody being in high school all the time. I'm open to anything, so if you have a favorite, list that shyt. The above criteria are a very basic outline, but I watch everything.

I have a page of most of the shows on CR, Combined Adventurous Links which, if you click on the link for a show you liked, it suggests several others to try that have some (perhaps seemingly random at times) similarity. It is meant to explore the possibilities of what is available here.

There is also an index page for exploring by tags, studios, etc., so if you find you liked a show, then you can easily explore for yourself by associated tags to get a list of shows with the same tag, and avoid tags you don't care for right now (like "school", for example). Although, since that is a primary target demographic age for the great bulk of these shows in Japan, that will limit your choices a lot, and may even cause you to miss out on some really good ones (like Parasyte, for example).

Thanks for the insight, I'll be checking those out soon.
I don't mind the "school" thing, but it's just nice every once in a while to watch something based somewhere else. lol
