In the meanwhile, I've been getting a weekly dose of the Vampire Knight's second season, Guilty. For an anime, there are layers to the story and I've enjoyed it a lot. I mentioned it to Anne Stuart and she said the last anime recommended to her was too bloody.
This one has a little bit in it, it is a vampire series, but overall not much. I think this series, since it is written by a woman (I think), leans more to the love story and the push-pull of a love triangle too.
