    Looking for an anime in a particular style...

    School Holidays. I'm bored and need some shit to do.

    I'm looking for an anime that's along the lines of something like Code Geass or Deathnote. Those kind of animes where there are a lot of things that all come together into the one final piece that effects the plot. The kind that has people plan and stratagize against each other. I would call these kind of anime's 'smart' animes but all it takes is a little bit of understanding and you've got what's going on so I won't. I can't think of a good way to describe it but you guys will know what I mean. So, any help?

    you are describing Danganronpa Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei The Animation my friend its an awesome anime i recommend it

    Synopsis
    A group of 15 elite high school students are gathered at a very special, high class high school. To graduate from this high school essentially means you'll succeed in life, but graduating is very difficult. The school is presided over by a bear called Monokuma, and he explains to them that their graduation hinges around committing a murder. The only way to graduate is to kill one of your classmates and get away with it. If the other classmates discover the identity of the killer, the killer is the only one executed. However, if they fail to catch the killer, only the killer graduates and the others are annihilated. Which of the 15 will survive the bloodbath to come?

    Hmm, for anime with intellectual main characters then I'd suggest Steins; Gate, One Outs and Psycho Pass. For a more Shounen-esque main character that's smart then I'd recommend Hyouka and Phi Brain. If you haven't already, then I think Darker than Black is the anime you should watch.

    I took a look at Darker than Black, the animation style isn't really my thing, there's something off about it to me. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    My suggestions are:

    1.Another (Definitely worth a shot)
    2.Danganronpa (Definitely worth a shot)
    3.Higashi no eden (Doesnt pull much to wathc even though its close to waht you want)
    4.Steins;Gate (You can follow series and the more the series advance the deeper the mistery. In order to really follow the story, follow my tip; NEVER FORGET 1ST EPISODE)

    Sorry, I should have said before. I'm not a huge fan of subtitles so I'd prefer a dubbed anime, subtitles just isn't my jam.

    If you're wanting dubs then you're better off reading manga since there's tons of anime that don't get dubbed.

    Man, that one year of no updates really made me forget where I'm at. This author is also the same one as One Outs which is pretty sick.

    But anyways, one really good anime you should watch is K-On. Though it's quite gory and a little violent. Not many can handle the anime that is K-On.

    I'm not sure if this is a hardcore trull but the only K-On I could find on Google was some anime about some girl in a musical band and everything seemed rather lovely and nice.

    It's incredibly deceiving, you have to be careful with it. It's been known to flip on a dime and turn into a murder fest.

    Lots of strategy too, though its about 4 episodes in till the good stuff.

    Thats the scanlators. One Outs finished like 4-5 years ago and the scanlators take about a year per volume because it's not super-popular.

    At least the author is working on it, not like Hunter X Hunter coming out with like a volume every 3 years now.
