This might be very vague in detail but there's two animes I'd like to try an find if at all possible.

Don't know if this'll help or not but they were both aired on SciFi channel back when they first aired anime during late nights during the mid to late 90's. An yes I've looked up the list they have on what animes they've shown but I think some are missing since I've seen some there that weren't listed .. same applies to what I'm looking for.

 

The first anime I only saw the ending of, but it had this group running away from some fort or something that was on fire and this evil looking guy watching outward from a post area with the fire ablaze behind him.

 

Second one I saw some of and it had these kids an some adults (I think) in this desolute city that looks like a major quake or war happened in it, and I remember this young woman an some others hopping on a jet an flying around to escape or something (don't recall the dialouge), only to find that they're on some flying turle looking thing through space and have nowhere's to go (sounds weird I know); other than that I don't recall anything else about that.

 

Both were either OVA's or movies.

Ok, my brain is about to explode.  I'm trying to remember this manga series.  The only thing I can remember was this guy can fight supernatural monsters because of his special ability.  Something to do with his one eye or something.  He fought them in this temple of sort.  And the series ended quite abruptly.  If you can figure out the title of this series with this little info, then you're my hero. :wub:   Thanks in advance. <3

Ok, I'm trying to remember this manga, it's about a guy who has the worst luck and the world, or I believe the world, is after him. He ends up finding a house with a demon in it. He explains his situation to the demon and after some events him and the demon start hanging out. In the end of the chapter, him and the demon plan to start a school for all and only demons. I know it's not the best description, but its the best I can do for now. -_-

Eh hmmm

The only things I know of that center around "Bad Luck" for a character is "To Aru Majutsu no Kinsho Mokuroku" and "Happy World!".

Futuristic sci fi manga I read a few years ago. The main character is this girl who gets possessed by evil/cursed sword. The sword was possibly made by her dad and it is also somehow made with new technology or something but it wants to kill. The art style is a bit rough/gritty and the manga is named after the sword.

 

Thats the most I can remember right now.

Maken X I believe is what your talking about. It's a manga based of the Sega Dreamcast game of the same name.

Thats the one. Thank you so much. Everytime I googled maken I would also end up with Maken-ki clogging the search. Now to figure out if I forgot about it or dropped it the last time I read it.

Can't remember the same of this slice-of-life series. It was a shounen, I think, where the only two characters in it are a male and female student. They both sit in the back of a classroom and the male student would do crazy/funny things to pass the time at his desk and the girl was constantly worried/annoyed/interested in what he was doing. It was pretty entertaining, but I can't remember the name of the series.

I don't get it. So it's not a manga? Because a long time ago, it was a featured manga on spectrum nexus, which is why I only have the image, I forgot to check the name. 

Do you also know the names of the characters in the image? 

 

edit: guess it's called Guilty Gear xtra or something xD

 

2nd: oh right, thanks
