After having caught up to the latest episodes of the series i went looking for something more violent and people recommended Elfen leid, School Days and higurashi when they cry but to be honest these shows sucked. they spent too much time on boring and there wasn't enough violence.

Afro Samurai i checked out and its pretty awesome but the sequel wasn't as good i thought. eventually i found GANTZ which is amazing the anime is only about 2 season but the maga is much longer so i started that and its pretty awesome. GANTZ had lots of violence and sexual content.

So what are you guys into? also if you know of any ultra violent anime that isnt mostly boring crap let me know!

Other anime i have watched and enjoyed-
Hellsing + OVA
Gundam Wing
Mobile Suit Gundam 00
Code Geass
Bamboo Blade
Dragonball + Z
Devil may cry
Ninja scroll (Movie and series)
Soul Eater
Shaman king
Air Gear
Elfen Lied was only good for the first nine minutes of the first episode. That was pretty good.

For violent/actiony anime, I would recommend Ghost in the Shell, (movies and series) Ruroni Kenshin, Cowboy Bebob, Samurai Champloo, Ergo Proxy, Akira (utter mindfuck), Neon Genesis Evangelion, Afro Samurai, Trigun (though it is fairly silly sometimes). Also, for manga, go with Battle Royale, that's some of the sickest shit I've ever seen.

For comedy (it's fairly sparse, I don't like to many anime comedies) Welcome to the NHK, Midori Days, Cromartie High.

Edit time: I forgot some stuff.

Gunslinger Girls, Ranma 1/2 (read the manga, the anime is fairly shitty), Ghost Hound, Tsubasa, xxxHolic (it's not at all about sex), Darker than Black, Mushishi, Appleseed, Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit (gotta love that spear action <3). Also, ALL of the Evangelion movies. They can get pretty fucked up.
