* I love [[{{Nasuverse}} Kinoko Nasu's]] writing to death. Yes, two-thirds of his works are porn with plot, but the plot is not only the focus, but a '''well done plot''' on top of that. Deep and interesting characters that all have their time in the spotlights, an easy-to-read yet well-laden writing style that mixes purple prose into near undiscernable amounts, and a [[WorldOfBadass 'Verse of '''badass''']] that still manages to make life interesting beyond explosions of power. The only thing wrong with the Nasuverse is arguably the [[FanDumb fandom]].

** Death Note is also one of a very small number of shows that have geniuses as main characters that also has those genius's intellects believably demonstrated, rather than relying on it being an InformedAttribute

*''Manga/DeathNote'' and ''PlatinumEnd'' writer Tsugumi Ohba is godlike when it comes to writing thrillers - especially when it comes to writing twists and gambit pileups. Not to mention that he's amazing at pacing. If all that wasn't enough, it's even more impressive when he uses all of these skills and applies them to writing a normal different genre of manga like ''Bakuman'' - which is much more of a SliceOfLife manga, but it's also written and paced like a thriller.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' has some thoroughly engaging writing, even if it does get a bit verbose sometimes. The characters bounce off eachother amazingly, and it has a humor and charm to it that is great. And the use of the bottom screen for narration is neat, and it becomes even neater with 5 words, [[spoiler:"He knew because ''I'' knew."]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'' and how it averts {{stereotype}}s. Gomez is a father with quirks and enthusiasm but not a BumblingDad, the Addamses are rich but don't mistreat their servants or people who are not rich, Fester is oblivious but intelligent, Morticia and Wednesday are solemn, but not killjoys, the family aren't constantly at odds with one another, Morticia doesn't nag Gomez, Wednesday & Pugsley don't call their parents "embarrassing", Morticia respects Grandmama and she's not a DamselInDistress, and above all, DarkIsNotEvil.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/MarthaSpeaks'': The talking dog sees the world from a dog's point of view and it averts ViewersAreMorons. Plus, there's no stereotyping.

** In that same vein, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' is amazingly well-written. Every episode just keeps getting better and better, with more twists and turns than a maze. In addition, the dialogue gives me so many feels at once.

* GreatBigSea does do some traditional music and the occasional cover, but their original pieces are what make them amazing. From the exuberant "When I Am King" to the haunting "Widow In the Window" to the TearJerker "Recruiting Sergeants", they prove over and over that they can tackle anything and not only do it, but do it brilliantly.
* Pretty much any song by TheOffspring is made of awesome! Their songs are intelligent, with healthy doses of dry humor and/or pathos as necessary. Their songs cover just about every topic under the sun, from personal relationships to political plays, and they do it all flawlessly.

* Ian Anderson of JethroTull has written some of the most poetically brilliant lyrics I've ever encountered. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ojt4aAw2PQ "Heavy Horses"]] (a moving tribute to the equine race) and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1EsfxjDWRk "Broadford Bazaar"]] (a poignant description of a marketplace and a comment on economic strain) are two of my personal favourites. Even if you just read the lyrics by themselves, they seem like beautiful poems in their own right.

* LightNovel/TrinityBlood has the most amazing writing staff ever. D: I'm in love with that show/manga, honestly (though more the anime, since manga's so pricy D:) I'm not a very emotional person but Gyula's death made me [[TearJerker cry]].
* Anime/CodeGeass has a lot of good dialogue in both versions, but after [[spoiler: Lelouch beats Schneizel]], his speech all over the world is EPIC.

* Rika Nakase definitely must have had Steven Foster as an influence for writing ''Manga/{{Kanamemo}}'', because the dialogue is no doubt the most clever dialogue I've heard in an anime comedy ''ever''. It feels exactly like watching an English dub, with some notable small slang uses in some scenes, already with the hilarious slapstick, and also the fact that she wrote the MusicalEpisode entirely by herself. She was no doubt like a Japanese LaurenFaust here.
