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.

      Hey guys, this is my first post. As the title states, i always have this problem: whenever I see a beautiful female character die or lose her beauty in an anime/manga, i get depressed. Therefore, i want to know if anyone has experienced this and if so, how did you overcome it.
      idk why but hurts to see it, I keep telling myself, "its not real, its just an anime/manga" or "she is human, she will get old and lose her beauty eventually" , but its not working for me. Having this problem made me unable to continue an anime series, to name a few; overlord, blood C and Sekirei. This does not apply to only female leads/MCs but also side characters.
      I hate to admit that i feel like a white knight but i dont think that can apply to me since im a girl? (maybe it does now that i think about it) I am an open lesbian, so this maybe one of the reasons why i cannot stand it. 
      Anyways i just want to express my feelings and to know if anyone has any tips on overcoming this problem because i do not want to keep dropping animes/mangas due to this...
      Edit: On a side note, when i see an ugly female character die, i literally do not care for some reason lol
      Thanks, FriendlyP.

      Hey, everyone, like many of you, I just started and would love to get some fresh titles to animes and add to my vast favorites.  I like nearly any type of anime genre but prefer reverse harems with strong female leads such as Yona of the Dawn, Snow White with the Red Hair, Twelve Kingdoms, and Ouran Host Club.  Females that doesn't have to physically stand out - if you get my drift - all the while strong personality wise.  I have seen Dance with the Devils, Amnesia,  and titles similar to those and didn't like them.  Anyway, thanks for the help!

      So Anime has been around for ages now. There have been new shows coming in every year. However, naturally, anime has significantly changed in the past decade or so. There are many changes that have occurred. So in your opinion, how has anime changed? Do you still enjoy anime? What things do you like/dislike about anime now?
      We decided to make a video on this topic if you are interested in our opinion.

      Hey Guys! I want a recommendations! so i want to see a anime where they girl and guy dislike each other or hate each other. also where they bicker a lot and fight a lot but slowly falls in love. ^^
      I want them to fall for each other slowly but not too much where they end up together at the very end. Shoujo etc is fine. highschool would be fine too.
      I want the leads to be good looking and male lead to be tall and hot.
      No hentai or ecchi please!
      love comedy and romance genre.
      I have seen 
      Maid sama
      Black prince and wolf girl
      Lovely complex
      Special A
      Kamisama kiss
      I prefer guy to fall first.
      AND PLEASE 
      No crybaby and annoying female lead. Kind of headstrong one.
      THANKS ^^
