I need help to find an anime I saw years ago.

Recommended Posts

I once saw an anime (I think on Adult Swim) close to 10 years ago, I only watched 1 or 2 episodes and I cannot think of the name. I have already looked at all the anime shows that adult swim has played and I don't see it or I just don't recognize the name. I will try and explain the plot as best as I can remember it.

The main protagonist was a teenage boy that meets this strange girl, she explains to him that every human has a life force that resembles a blue flame burning inside each person, she tells him that his flame is burning out will be extinguished at midnight. As they sit on the roof of a house you see his flame going out and as soon as it does it relights and he doesn't die. The girl then acts surprised and calls him something catchy that explains that every night at midnight his flame will be re-lit. I think then she shows him that there are monsters living among the people disguised as humans, and thats about all I remember lol

 

If anyone knows what this show was please let me know, I know it isn't much to go on but this is all I can remember of it.

Hey I am so sorry but I am also looking for an anime I saw ages ago. It was on German television if that's any help. 

I think I just saw a few Episodes before the finale. It was a group of teens and tweens with different roles in the group and they tried to defeat a guy who collected time. 

The bad guy killed the boy (maybe even protagonist?) of the group and they were so devestated with his death but the fight against the bad guy went on and as they finally manage to destroy the mech the bad guy hid in they took the time the bad guy collected and activated it so they could return to a point before the guys death but the time he collected wasn't even enough to return to that point and as the (still alive) villain saw that the time wasn't even enough to turn back to that point he realised that all that he had done these past years was useless and he lost all his motives and broke down. 

 

 The anime can't be too recent. It should be before 2014. 

Does anyone have an Idea?

Well Hearts...I'm pretty sure...can't think of any other mecha/time traveling anime from 2014 anyways, that you are thinking of Buddy Complex.  I haven't seen it myself so I can't verify the plot info, but maybe check it out and let us know?  By the way, next time you might want to start up your own thread for a question like that.  A lot of people typically stop reading once they've seen that the original topic question has been answered already, so you might've lost some people who would've known before they even got to your question.  :)  Welcome to our little group regardless!  It's always nice to see new people on the forums.

      So i just finished reading a manga called 3D kanjoo, i finished it all in one night about 4 hours to read it all. the story ends in a happy ending but i have this weird lingering feeling of loneliness and sadness after i finished it. then after reading that i watch the last two episodes of Darling in the franxx, and idk why but my mind is starting to realize how lonely i am, reading and watching those to really messed me up. i have friends but i rarely see them as they each do their own thing and only on occasion do we meet , i have a job and i always put on a fake smile and act cheery around my co workers  but when i go home at the end of the day and in my room, reality hits and i go down a roller coaster of mental breakdown. i love anime and manga but whenever i watch them or read them this feeling always comes up. I live a life of solitude, im to shy to meet new people so i hole up in my room and as days go by i feel my mentality degrade. im alone and idk what to do.

      Hey all, so every now and then, I come across a song that just strikes a chord with me and an anime.  Sometimes, it's with a 'ship' (you know, an anime relationship between two characters that I want to happen but might not ever see in the anime) and sometimes it just reflects the anime to me.  The latest one that has grabbed me is Yours by Russell Dickerson.  To me, I can totally see it as a "ship-song" between Ichinose Tokiya and Haruka in Uta no Prince-sama (my personal favorite pairing ~whimsical sigh~).
       
      Anyone else have a song that has reminded them of an anime or ship recently?
