I feel like if I watched Clanaad, I'd be depressed for a month after finishing it. I had a friend who watched it, and he told me some of the stuff that happens in it (I gave permission for him to use spiolers), and I was depressed just picturing it. I may get around to watching it someday.

I'd recommend Kill La Kill. Seriously epic fights, a good story, good music and possibly the one anime where fan-service has a point beyond the obvious. GR only gave it a "Stream it" and said it didn't have any intellectual worth (to quote him - it is "Stufective").

Respectfully I disagree. The intellectual value here and the deeper message is that this is a show that explores society's relationship with fashion and clothing and its meaning to us. Yes, the show turns it up to 11 and beyond. Yes, the show is often silly and over the top but these qualities do not automatically disqualify it from having any intellectual worth. Personally, I highly recommend it. I was thoroughly entertained the whole way through.

For a more in depth look, I also recommend googling: Kill La Kill - the Fashion of Fascism. The blogger goes deeper into the meanings of several scenes and shows a deeper side that GR simply didn't see or comment on during his review.
