If you thought Erased was good, Steins Gate will make you have a multi-orgasm.

Yes Steins;Gate is amazing, you should be able to find it somewhere online.

Steins;Gate would be my recommendation also. It's definitely worth owning so I world recommend purchasing the DVD or Blu-Ray from Amazon or Funimation. It's not that expensive.

Like everyone else, Steins Gate. I would recommend buying it on DVD/Blu Ray, perferably Blu Ray because I watched the whole series at least 3 times already. Eden of the East is a good series too. Though not overly complicated, the story and concept is pretty good and even the movies were very well made.

The lost village (here on crunchyroll) is looking pretty amazing currently It's very mysterious and creepy it has this happy feeling to it but you can just feel theres something very dark under that happiness and it slowly comes out each episode..

Have you seen Higurashi no naku koro ni? It's a complicated horror/mystery where a small village is caught in an endless time loop, and people keep going crazy each phase. I sadly just found it myself, and will definitely need to research it. It's extremely well written.

As for The Lost Village, it's OK. The cast is too large ~30 or so, which means only a few get developed and the rest stay obnoxiously one-dimensional. You have "chickenshit no Judgeness" the poser, the crazy girl that clutches her head and screams about killing people, the lovey-dovey couple that does nothing but clutch each other and talk about their love, the clueless bimbo, and that's just off the top of my head for the terrible one-notes.


Aldnoah has tactical fights. MC-kun fights more like MacGyver than [insert generic NAKAMA POWAH hero here], but is cold and seemingly emotionless (he actually does have emotions and even emotional development, but it's subtle and lost on most). I've heard many people get put off by this. Otherwise, the overall story was very gundam-esque. You have the naive princess trying to prevent war and the various factions trying to use her and/or control information. The enemy has the best mechs, though, hence the emphasis on outsmarting enemies. It gets a little old how MC-kun is the only soldier who can think up battle tactics beyond "stand your ground, shoot wildly, and scream," but his fights are imminently satisfying when his plans come through. I never really understood the hate for it. Sure, it's flawed, but it commits the same sins many other anime commit without being half as demonized. It's definitely worth watching at least the first few eps.

Ofc, if we mention A/Z we have to bring up Gundam's Iron-blooded Orphans. Many say it's Aldnoah done right, but to me it's just different flavors. It's one of the better Gundam's with political intrigue and a focus on the darker sides of war. Child soldiers who keep on fighting cuz they don't know any better, nor anything else for that matter.

I don't see how Erased is something deep and complex, the story is really easy to understand and the characters aren't very complex. But still I have some recommendations that I hope you may enjoy if you happen to watch these shows:

Steins;Gate

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni

I think between these three you'll find something to love, especially if you liked Erased.

BTW, Higurashi is known as "When they cry" over on Hulu, but they lack both the second season and sister series. The first is "When the Cicades Cry," and the second translates to "When the Seagulls Cry." Seagulls isn't the second season, though. That is just the first but has "Kai" (for Restoration) at the end.
