I just bought crunchyroll, and i was expecting it to be easy to get into it, but it's really hard to choose from all these different titles.
I want an anime that leaves me on the edge of my toes.
Any recommendations?

Erased is nice to start with.

Serial Experiment Lain (If you are a casual watcher and don't want to use your brain too much avoid this one)

Fate/Zero (Because why the hell not?) Then go watch Fate/Stay Night UBW. The former being especially good according to most anime fans. You don't know what's gonna happen.

Re:Zero is good. Not my favorite show but it's entertaining and it keeps you on edge.

Parasyte The Maxim is excellent. Definitely keeps you gripped.

My Hero Academia is the best shonen ever. Keeps my attention, idk what it'll do for you lol.

Idk if you've seen any of these, but if you haven't, check them out and enjoy! Welcome to CR.

If you're looking for some horror style, you might try /another, or for gore, /terraformars (both censored and uncensored are available for the first season, they act like separate seasons in the show display). Tough call, though, any particular genre/style you prefer?

I don't know what you have seen already but if you want suspenseful shows these are all good:

/code-geass


Code Geass is a psychological, action, mech, thriller with so slice of life thrown in. It's major strengths are a compelling main character, a large well orchestrated plot, and the best anime ending I have yet to see.

/puella-magi-madoka-magica


Don't let the art work or even the first episode fool you; this show is incredibly dark, ominous, and suspenseful. It's known for being a meta breaking twist on the magical girl genre.

/another


I'll echo MakotoKamui's recommendation of Another as I also believe it fits what you are looking for; it's an ominous, mystery horror thriller.

/attack-on-titan


I kind of hate recommending Attack on Titan because it's so obscenely popular you will likely end up watching it at some point if you are in to anime but it fits your request for an edge of your toes show and I do like it a lot.

Oh no baby what is you doing? You gotta judge an anime off of 3 episodes at least! Even then, that's still a bit early lol.

Naruto and Hunter x Hunter are both kind of long, but they are really good.

Akame ga Kill (you never know what will happen in this series)
Aldnoah.zero (one of the sweetest alien invasion rides ever taken)

Personally I find the 3 ep rule stupid.
Anyway try Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor.
