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.

      Hello, I need help figuring out what anime I have seen as a kid. It's been awhile but what I can remember is that the main protagonist is a high schooler, I believe he lives in a shrine as well. He able to transform into a red armour figure with a green gem. Something happens that resurrects an evil god that appears to have similar armour but it was blue. They fight and then they become giants, and the main protagonist looks like a priest with two daggers. I remember having three burnt CD's of three different eps or movie, they were also dubbed. 
       
      someone pls help me find this anime

      hi, i'm caue, new here and joined the forum just to share my little anime quest with you. i haven't read any other topic (mostly because i could not quickly find anything related to my quest) and won't stay much longer.
      when i was a kid (in brazil), probably back in the 80s (since i was born in '81), i've watched this feature film anime. over and over again. on tape. come to think of it, i also watched a lot of juspion on tape and that wasn't a feature film... so perhaps this wasn't either - although i do think it was just 1 big episode in an SP 2 hours higher quality tape in this case and not an 8 hours EP tape.
      now, the only thing i can safely remember is "nora" being sung in a downbeat tune while she dies. literally the only sure thing. it could be a mecha or futuristic or fantasy and it could be a very childish shonen, seinen, kodomo or moe. or none of that. but it sure had a sad song mentioning "nooooraaaa onikonokoni... nooooorikoooo kikadookaioh.", or something, with this very precise amount of syllables.
      over the years, every now and then i recall about it for whatever reason. then i fail miserably while seeking for it. nope, parents, brothers and childhood friends don't help. none of them like anime as much as i do as well, except for youngest bro who was born in '88 so no way. today was yet another one of those days...
      google gives some nice hints, but perhaps it was released in the 90s... or 70s! at least from the 80s listed there, i think it's none of them. at least clicking in the ones i don't recognize having watched and looking at the 4 character names on the bottom, i could find no nora. and almost none of them reminded me much of the style i very vaguely have in mind, which would be closer (if mamind isn't tricking me) to zillion (i also thing it's none of those alternatives "people also searched for"), the oldest one i remember watching (again, if myself ain't tricking my other self). and i didn't go through all the hundred ones in wikipedia because, well, i don't care that much.
      as an addendum, i haven't watched gundam or macross as far as i recall, so perhaps it would be one of those? 
      now if i can find it, i'll be sure i did because of that song!
      can you help?
