Fate/Stay Night (i found the main character to have a very confusing power although the plot isnt exactly "unique" but it is a good anime)
Karin (theres blood but... not exactly "gore" blood, more like "lawl" blood... basically about a vampire girl who instead of sucks blood, she releases blood... and sometimes.. too much :3, i find that unique)
Lucky Star (either like it or you don't)
Shinigami no Ballad (Dunno, never watched pass ep1, it bore me but it might interest you... about some... shinigami girl who goes and.. takes peoples lives? Not anything like Bleach or anything... its more... drama or so it seems from episode1)
Ef - Tales of Memories (what i find weird about this plot for this anime is that it switches characters a lot and how one of the main characters can only remember for a limited amount of time, drama anime with how i should say.. beautiful artwork?)
Sola (I find this anime similar to many animes, especially Ef Tales of Memories due to the artwork, i havent watched pass episode 3, so im not to sure what its about at the moment but i still like it :3)
I've watched FSN, Lucky Star, Ef, and Karin.

I'll go check out Sola...

I've watched the dorama version of Shinigami no Ballad lol... if the anime is similar to the dorama then... err x.x

O yeah..forgot about that..
I really like the anime, even it only got 6 ep..
It is about a Shinigami girl helping people about their loss of the love ones..
What about?
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (first season)
Zoku Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei (second season)
Plot:
Itoshiki Nozomu is the world's most negative person. To his way of thinking, there is no hope or meaning in this existence. Even the three kanji of his name become the two-kanji word zetsubou, "despair", when compressed. What an ironic twist of fate, then, that he becomes teacher to a class containing his precise opposite, the invincibly positive-minded Fuura Ka***a.

You can try MONSTER, thats a criminal/ detective styled anime with loads of gruesome killing scenes. So if you're a Miyuki styled person, its an anime you SHOULD watch.

I don't think there are many. Anime whose storylines stand out as something different for reasons other than a little gimmicky twist here or there do exist, but there's not much original, especially not in the action or romance genres.

Two I can think of at the moment are:
Monster (saw it back in '04 and I'll still recommend it)
Seikai no Monshou/Seikai no Senki (this one's a bit older, but the story is heavily character-driven, something most new series aren't these days)

Something my World History professor said once: The Japanese aren't great innovators; they're great emulators.

So, a lot of series won't give you anything new, but you'll find tons of reinventions of old ideas. Anime isn't exactly the medium you look to for something unique.

Hmm....the only anime I can think up is that's unique and hasn't been suggested is:
Hayate no Gotoku(I think the plot is pretty unique, having a dept ridden butler)

I always really enjoyed Sailor Moon's plot 8D Really gets into heavy stuff later throughout the series.

I dunno if it ever got turned into an anime but I remember the .Remote manga was a really fascinating detective type thingy.

@ kago & broken: I'll go check Monster out... though I can't say the same thing for 12 kingdoms(</3 that anime)

@ fieryshadowcard: Lol... I agree. Though every once in a while, there'll surely be a unique anime =O

@ igneus: no thank you... </3 bloody animes

@ chobits: err... @.@

Thanks for the suggestions.

hmm.. how about...

Bokurano ( I didn't see much of the anime, but I've read a lot of the manga)
The Macross series (like Macross Frontier, Macross 7, ect ect)
I agree with Monster of course, that anime is just epic (epic to the point that a english live action movie may be released next year D: )
Tower of Druaga: aegis of ark (the anime's first episode is really deceiving, mind you, either way its pretty awesome)
Gintama if you're into epic lulz even more epic then Lucky star D:
and uh I forgot all the others

oh wait

Fafnir of the Azure (forgot the romaji title 8| )
