Hey, I haven't done one of these in a while.

Tales of the Abyss: Basically just like the game in most respects, apparently, so handy for anyone who can't be bothered to actually play all the way through. Also, Takehito Koyasu as Jade, so that's a bonus. As I have not managed to finish the game myself, I am not sure how much is being left out, but I have it on reasonably good authority that it's at least not making any substantial deviations.

Level E: The basic premise of this one is that the Earth is positively rife with all kinds of alien visitors, and everyone knows it except the Earthlings. The primary example is the Prince of Dogura, the trollingest troll who ever trolled; almost every storyline turns out to have been brought about by him messing with someone's head in some fashion or other. As such, the level of crazy is quite high.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Your basic magical girl series gone horribly, horribly wrong. I can't really say much about this one without spoiling the twists, but suffice to say that the perpetual stuffed-animal cat smile of the obligatory cute animal mascot gets more and more disturbing the further you get into the series.

Haiyoru! Nyaruani: Remember My Love(craft): A Flash anime about anthropomorphized moe versions of Lovecraftian abominations such as "Nyarlko." 5-minute random gag spots, basically. Has no point whatsoever.

Wandering Son: Middle-school slice-of-life drama about a boy who identifies as a girl, a girl who identifies as a boy, their classmates, and their various and increasingly tangled relationships with one another. Rather than standard anime cross-dressing, it seems to take a much more serious approach to the subject matter and things like the double standard that applies to boys who dress like girls as opposed to girls who dress like boys. Looks like it was painted in watercolors. Not precisely my cuppa, but worth a look.
