Nanoha if you are willing to watch past three episodes when it actually gets off the ground.

Cromartie High School is hilarious and has 2 or 3 stories per episode (like mitsudomoe) so you don't have to watch the whole episode in one sitting (in case you only have a finite amount of time).

I started it back when Brightside recommended to to me a few months back; I didn't get the humor. I saw 4 episodes or so and didn't find it funny :(

You didn't watch Rozen Maiden, Neonie? For real, I am surprised. There are two seasons, the second is called Rozen Maiden Traumend. (which I have not seen. :sadface:)

The majority of it is surreal humour, so it's not everyone's cup of tea. I love surreal humour though, so it was amazing for me. XD

Ergo Proxy

This remains one of my favourite animes.

Oh, I also highly recommend Speed Grapher. It is amazing.

Might I suggest 'Kino's Jurney'. It is by far one of the best philosophical anime out there. I recently re-watched and it still was vary entertaining.

Looking for recommendations, please.

Since you've finished Gunbuster, your next assignment is Diebuster.

Really trying to get into Diebuster but this change to Moe, along with this terribly annoying lead, is rubbing me the wrong way :(

Well you could say the same for Gunbuster. Tough it out, it gets epic.

Hmm well The two main leads of Gunbuster and Diebuster have the same personalities and relationship between them.

@Fryfry
Check out the series Blade of the Immortal and the movie Blade of the Phantom Master. I really liked both.
