    I really loved Death Note, and I would like to know if there are more Anime series like that.
    I also love Beyblade and Medabots, but that's mostly because I grew up with those.
    I've heard about an Anime called Monster, anyone familiar with it?

    Definitely Code Geass. It was the first anime I ever really watched and I watched it before Death Note. IIRC, they're coming out with R3 this year as well (even though most things were wrapped up in R2).

    Yeah, definitley Code Geass, also it's not a R3, and it's not based on Lelouch either
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    But a completely new character.

    I didn't really like Death Note, so I didn't watch the whole thing, but I know it had some psychological components, so you might like Serial Experiments Lain. I thought that was an excellent and pretty unique anime.

    Wonder if I should give Death Note a second chance, a lot of people seem to like it...

    Even for a spoiler that was too much of a spoiler. And yeah, I know the ending, I finished R2.

    I thought it was gonna follow the events after R2, not to mention there was kinda that little mysterious little cliffhanger with C2.

    But that Code Geass series, is that more childish like Pokemon/Beyblade or more adult like Death Note?

    Also, anyone know something about that Monster series? I've read somewhere it's very alike to Death Note, so I think I would love that Monster series too.
    I've found a link already for the whole series, but I want to know for sure if it's gonna be good or not.

    Big thanks already.

    I watched some episodes of Monster, and i can tell you, it's very good, you should watch the anime.
    Try it out.

    Childish? Oh God no. It's quite adult. Segregation, racism, massacres, blood, some language, nudity, the usual stuff.

    If anyone got some other suggestions, please share.

    Try a series called One Outs. It's about Baseball but it's very psycological between players of the team and the coach. Lots of people compare it to Death Note.

    as for series similar to death note, you wont get many by way of anime. as for monster being similar to deathnote, there isn't much except that its fairly heavy, its an okay series. seeing as you haven't seen many, i'll probably be steering way of more general recommendations.

    you should try out sayanora zetsubou sensei. its a comedy by shaft and does have a fair bit of childish comedy but it does explore a couple problems in society. heck the students alone are fairly representative of that.

    There's Eden of the east, while it doesnt explore as heavy themes. its very bourne trilogy-esque. very good series with a movie out and another coming out.

    you could try out Welcome to the NHK, its a story about a hikki/Neet (which pretty much is a person who is afraid to go outside, and is unemployed, not in education or training) and how he tries to cure his fear of going outside. also another very nice series.

    and you might like BECK, its a great series about a couple of guys who form a band and try to get a label. a very enjoyable series. both manga and anime are worth a read/watch.

    I accidentally opened the spoiler and read it, I feel so bad now [​IMG]
    I know from myself that I'll never forget these things, fuck, I ruined so much from the series now.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, I'm busy with Monster and Code Geass now, but I'll keep this thread bookmarked if I need a new Anime.

    Along with Death Note, I really enjoyed Fullmetal Alchemist. They aren't too related, but I figured I would throw it out there anyway.

    Well, now that we've all ruined the ending...

    Basically, C2 used to talk to Lelouch's mom (whatever her name was), even though she was dead. In the end, she's talking in the same manner she did to Lelouch's mom, but instead she says "Lelouch". Not to mention that the chick stated that her body was kept preserved in case there was a chance she could return to it. Not to mention that the same chick was also able to possess that Knight of the Round.
