It is very very creepy, and well-told. The last couple of episodes are seriously scary imo, and also quite shocking, really.

I was recommended by a friend to check out "Bungaku Shoujo" ("Literature Girl"), which consists of two OVA series and a movie. It is so goddamn weird, but seriously, it was good. Aya Hirano being psychotic, who'd turn that down?
There's a hint of magic/fantasy, but it's just a tiny medium to convey the story, and it's quite pleasant.
Music was awesome.
If anyone wanna just jump right into it and watch it, I have links to it all:
First OVA episode
Second OVA series, consisting of three episodes
Anime movie, which is the main thing. The OVAs are warm-ups kinda.
[close]
I'm happy I watched it. It's one of those good shows that for some reason leave you wondering what the point of even making it was, but make you realize what a fun way you've just spent your time.
What I especially liked about Bungaku Shoujo was that there was that shock value, similar to that of Higurashi, that I honestly haven't gotten to experience in years.
I probably won't get into it, but I think there's a lot more to the series, as it's adapted from a novel series that is much bigger than the parts adapted into anime.

It's like looking at a mirror.

"Strobe Edge" is amazing. Prime exemplar of the kinda shoujo manga that'll make you totally depressed when you catch up to it..

Finally started Cowboy Bebop. Get to see what I was missing.

I've been meaning to start a new anime, and now that winter break is coming up I might actually have enough time to do it. So far I'm thinking about:

Fullmetal Alchemist (not Brotherhood)
Naruto (my friend really wants me to start this but I'm not so sure)
Diabolik Lovers (another one from my friend...but again idk)
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Gin no Saji (only because the title character dresses like Professor Layton lmao)
Steins;Gate
Clannad: After Story

And my cousin recommended something called Gargantua? He wasn't too sure of the name himself and he didn't tell me any of the plot details (so I wouldn't be spoiled) so I really have no idea what it is.

NGE isn't that good, it was amazing when there was nothing else to compare it to, but nowadays it kinda falls under the water.

FMA original is not nearly as good as Brotherhood, but it's still a pretty good show even though the ending was absolute garbage.

Naruto is my guilty pleasure anime. The total number of episodes so far is 561. Even if you don't count filler, there's about 120 episodes of the original series and about 250 or so of Shipudden, so it'll take you awhile to catch up. But I do highly recommend you at least give it a shot.

BUT if you want an AMAZING series you can watch in one sitting, watch Afro Samurai. 5 episodes and a movie but it's one of the best animes I've ever seen.

I have about five friends who swear by NGE, and Yugi is the first person I've heard say it's not good. So going by recommendations, I'd watch that. I've also heard Steins;gate is really good, which is next on my list.

Oh, and if you want slice of life, try Sakamichi no Apollon (12 episodes) or Kokoro Connect (17 episodes). They're now two of my favorite anime. I feel like you'd like Kokoro Connect better of the two.

the ending was absolute garbage.

Honestly, I haven't seen brotherhood (I know, shame on me), so I can't compare, but I don't really think the ending was that bad. Sometimes I wonder if getting attached to the manga (or its specific storyline, in this case the one in Brotherhood) is what makes an anime that doesn't stay true to it seem so bad. That's why I watched the original anime first, to kinda try to bias myself in the opposite direction to see if the hype about brotherhood is warranted when I watch it over break.

Clannad After Story is the best one on the list, but it's the second season of Clannad, so watch that first.
Gin no Saji is great, it's really new.
Steins;Gate is amazing.
I haven't seen Diabolic Lovers.
The rest really isn't of much quality, and they are undoubtedly over-rated (because of popularity), to some degree anyways. Fullmetal Alchemist isn't toooo bad, but..

I recommend Space Brothers, as it is the best anime ever created.

EDIT: And Suisei no Gargantia (the one your cousine recommended) is pretty bad.

ANOTHER EDIT:

I also think NGE is bad - it's so hard to get into, and it's only popular in the first place because it's already popular (that didn't make sense), but in relation to everything else, it's not that good.
I can comfirm what slow says about Sakamichi no Apollon and Kokoro Connect - they are really amazing.
And Steins;Gate, which I've posted loads aobut before, is very very amazing - just hard to get past the two first episodes without getting slightly bored.

just to support that statement:
So I just found this thing called Space Brothers, and it's the best fucking show I have seen in my live, anime or not.
Space Brothers(best show in the world - anime or not!!! - ongoing).
63. What is your favourite anime?
Uchuu Kyoudai
"Uchuu Kyoudai" - now, I'm just mentioning this because it's my favorite anime right now, and it really is the best thing I've ever seen. And I've seen A LOT of anime..! Note that this show could make a serial killer cry, no joke. It's ongoing, like 39 episodes in or something..
subbed.
Space Brothers has the exact same feel to it, but is a lot better..!
It is, today, one entire year since "Uchuu Kyoudai", the greatest show ever, started airing.
And it still is magnificent, even now at episode 52!
I hope this show will continue on forever! :D
Uchuu Kyoudai is amazing!! :D
We all know of my undying love for Uchuu Kyoudai, right?
Well, that show is still ongoing of course, but another anime by the same studio, A-1 Pictures, has started airing - it's called Gin no Saji, or Silver Spoon in English, and I can tell it's gonna be very much like Uchuu Kyoudai - which is a good thing. A very good thing. Like they even got the same guy to do the OP and ED.
It's only one episode inn so far, but check it out people - it's slice of life at its best.
And "Space Brothers", the best show in the entire universe, continues, as it has been doing for the last three seasons (it's at episode 76 now).
I recommend Space Brothers, as it is the best anime ever created.
After I found Uchuu Kyoudai, I've never said that anything else is the best show.
