[size=18]Thought Provoking Anime… They DO Exist![/size]
By: Kuuhaku

Usually I love to come home after work get comfortable and not have to think anymore – so I generally decide to watch something a bit mind numbing. This isn’t always the case though. There are times when I need something to stimulate my mind and get me thinking.

And much to the surprise of those who are NOT very familiar with anime – there are thought provoking anime shows to watch. Some of the things that these shows revolve around are society and politics. One of the underlining themes that I love about these sort of titles is when they shed light on the fact that sometimes there’s no clear line between good and evil – right and wrong. So, here are some thought proving anime shows to watch this weekend:
