I was also thinking about I watching Fullmetal alchemist, because I noticed that it's pretty popular. Id also like to see some good horror anime
Even before the other recommendations mentioned I would go for Another, packed with disturbing imagery and final destination style deaths in every episode. It's over the top at times but a very sincere attempt at horror.
A less direct recommendation but Perfect Blue is a masterfully made film, very dark and violent, and focusing on losing one's grip on reality. It's by the same mastermind as Paranoia Agent (which sense-offender mentioned), the late Satoshi Kon.
And I can never pass up a chance to recommend my favourite anime by far, Neon Genesis Evangelion. It's a mecha anime on the surface but gets significantly darker as it goes on with several bouts of pure psychological horror throughout. I think it's one of the most truly dark and disturbing works of fiction but it's more subtle about it than most, especially by anime standards.

Love this one, maybe my favourite comedy anime from what I've seen. There's lots of cringe humour that usually only shows up in british shows like the Inbetweeners and Peep Show. Still disappointed we'll most likely never got a watamote season 2 despite a fairly vocal fan base.

Once again, thanks for spoiling the show, now i have no reason to watch it.
Well, I'd still recommend it. It's a bit melodramatic and a bit of a slow burn, with whole episodes dedicated to single music performances done with an intensity as if they're the most epic DBZ battles, but it's a worthwhile payoff. Coincidentally I had the series spoiled while I was watching it which I could have done without, but the later episodes were still just as effective I think. It's one of the very few recent series I went and bought a figure from.
Many episodes also run directly into eachother which gives it a nice flow and doesn't feel like it wastes any time. Helps make it feel shorter than it is I think. It's one of the highest rated recent shows on MAL if that's anything to go by.

Any of you guys watch the Monogatari series? I just started watching Bakemonogatari several days ago.
None yet but it's up there pretty high on the ever nebulous watchlist. Bakemonogatari might be one of the next series I tackle when I get back into the swing of it.
