can anyone tell me what anime this is, I watched it a LONG time ago but i forgot what it was called

It was about girls with horns on their heads who have long invisible hands coming out of their backs and can kill people people instantly. And the government keeps most of them in big cells and they gave them numbers to identify them but 2 escaped. And one of the guys in the government happen to be the father of one of those girls, but then happens to be the father of some other girl with horns which the government sent to capture the 2 girls who escaped.

ring any bells anyone?

Elfen Lied, and you should read both the manga and Anime.

The plots of both really differ that much.

I don't do a whole lot of reading/watching anime/manga, what would you say is your favorite though?

Gunslinger Girl is among my favorites.

It's not just about girls shooting guns and beating bad guys like other manga.

Rather, it's focuses

on the individual characters and how girls lost their innocence (not anything adultish.) and their humanity basically.

I haven't seen any manga magazines in stores, they might not sell them here. But whenever I think of Japanese TV shows, I think of 4kids.

Ah yes, anime. :) I'll say my favorite ever was Bomberman Jetters, one of those which is based of a game, and doesn't suck hard. :lol: Very touching anime, IMO. (Made me cry. :( )

Dood, I just tried reading FLCL...that things ten times crazier than the anime, and thats pretty crazy in the first place!

Seriously, go check it out. The whole thing has a sketchy kind of style that matches the feel of the novel perfectly :D

No mention of Cowboy Bebop? :shock:

IMO, Bebop is one of the best anime series I've ever watched.

Some other favorites:

Full Metal Alchemist

Big O

Ghost in a Shell

Yeah.

I hear alot of people mention Cowboy Bebop when it comes to anime.

I just never got around watching it.

I hear lots of "FMA is awesome"

I don't know what big O is.

Ghost in the Shell. The 1 anime that influenced the creation of the Matrix trilogy.

Also, gunslinger girl so far is a great show.

I stopped watching after episode 5 for some reason. But it was awesome. It's not entirely action oriented or lolicon like the title would imply.

Currently watching...

FLCL (For the hundredth time :arrow: )

Currently reading...

FLCL

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Blood the last Vampire

Might read/watch...

Tenchi Muyo (I watched the original anime, but haven't read the manga yet)

FLCL, I saw episode 1. Single greatest crazyness since Jojo's bizzare adventure.

Evangelion, OMFG TEH REI!!!!!

Blood.........., sounds interesting. But I just never looked at vampires ever since Twilight or Moon Phase.

Tenchi Muyo............ Nothing to say.

I liked the original Ghost in the Shell (I don't like Stand Alone Complex too much though), but I haven't really seen much of Cowboy Bebop

If you can handle staying up late enough, watch Adult Swim every Saturday. They have an EXCELLENT anime lineup ;)

We don't get Adult Swim over here :(

We don't actually get any anime on TV over here actually. I watch it all on the internet
