Before long, they learn everything, including the bloody history that brought humanity to this state.

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..

Several dialogues and plot elements in Zetsuen no Tempest pay homage to the works of William Shakespeare.

Spring, 1998. Recently transferred to Yomiyama Kita Middle School, Kouichi Sakakibara (age 15) gets the feeling something isn't quite right with his class, who all seem to be afraid of something. He finds himself attracted to the strange yet beautiful Mei Misaki, but his efforts to get closer only confound things further. Then there is a horrible accident… What on earth is happening in this place? “Another” is a new kind of schoolyard horror mystery from Yukito Ayatsuji, the standard-bearer of the “neo-orthodox mystery” movement. The original novel was called a “new masterpiece” by its author, and the long-awaited TV Anime version will debut in January of 2012, ahead of the release of the live-action film version in summer. The main staff for the TV Anime version includes Tsutomu Mizushima as director, Noizi Ito handling character design, and P.A. WORKS in charge of production. The staff and studio have a succession of hits to their names, and have formed a fantastic team to tackle this definitive piece in horror Anime.

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.
