If you are looking for the kind of Anime that will leave you sitting at the edge of your seat Hunter x Hunter (2011) is the right one for you.
The story might seem a little childish at first but as soon as the plot develops the (very) dark nature of the story becomes obvious. The characters are unique and and incredibly well developed, with the show not being afraid of testing them psychologically in a way that not many animes are willing to. The fights are intense both physically and psychologically and as the Anime progress they tend to become more violent and over the edge.
The soundtrack is beautiful. From the intense/epic classic orchestras to the guitar riffs, everything seems to fall into place. Even the show's "intros" and "outros" are very consistent and worth listening to.
All in all, this is the kind of Anime that a true fan of this Japanese art will not want to miss.
