This psychological thriller is about Yuki, a loner who's not very good with people. He prefers to write a diary on his cell phone and talk to his imaginary friend, Deus Ex Machina – The God of Time and Space. However, Yuki soon learns that Deus is more than a figment of his imagination when he makes Yuki participate in a battle royale with eleven others. The contestants are given special diaries that can predict the future, each diary possessing unique features that give it both advantages and disadvantages. Within the next 90 days, the contestants must try to survive until there is only one left standing. The winner will become the new God of Time and Space

Has some great psychotic characters in this as well as some disturbing romance and some pretty good action too, Yukki finds out that he can't trust anyone

I think people have forgotten that there are actually anime out there that aren't Naruto, Bleach or One Piece..

Psycho-Pass

Score:

Really cool anime involving a lot of futuristic tech revolving around a world where people's emotions are monitored and if it becomes unstable they are labelled "latent criminals" and taken down by the Public Safety Bureau. The specialised guns they use are badass, definitely worth watching.

Fate/Zero

Score:

%

Fate/Zero is all about the 4th Holy Grail War which takes place every 60 years. 7 Magi are chosen to fight each other in order to claim the power of the Grail where it will grant a miracle of their choice. In order to help them achieve victory they summon a heroic spirit as their familiar which are powerful warriors chosen throughout history each with a different class (Archer, Berserker, Rider, Assassin, Caster, Lancer and Saber)

Though the first episode may seem slow it's necessary for the introduction of the wars and the families involved for anyone who doesn't know the Fate series. It has many great characters and action scenes
