Although recently retracted from the Crunchyroll lineup, "The Mystic Archives of Dantalian" is one of the most inspired anime I've ever seen and I want everyone else to know about it. This show has a brilliant musical score, beautiful drawings, and a simple story to follow. It can be incredibly creepy and chilling, but also very light-hearted and cute. Some have compared it to Gosick. The key difference between this show and that one is that this one can feel less serious since the underlying plot doesn't involve a little girl being captured and forced into a war. I think it could actually inspire kids to take an interest in reading, though there's significant violence in it so I'm not sure how the censors would react.

I'll second everything you said about Dantalian. Pity it had to be archived, because it was worth re-watching.

I managed to get the first Blu-Ray disk set, which has the first two episodes of the series! The first episode is probably my favorite because the poem used to summon Sheol.
