Fullmetal Alchemist - or FMA, also known as Finally, More Angst! Brilliant, plotty, painful anime. IMDb suggests Tragedy, Violence, Racism, Genocide, Hypocrisy, Gore, Impalement, Serial Killer, and Breast Squeezing. I just like it when cute girls cling to me and whimper while watching it.

As for my personal relationship with the fandom, er, see 2005. And add a batch of brilliant people, some of which I still chat with, and a metric ton of wank. Go figure!
