    Well, anime is sort of diverse in genre. What's your poison for entertainment?

    Cowboy Bebop is good if you're looking for a mature, sci-fi adventure with tones of noir and western in it.
    More recently, Black Lagoon is also a good choice for action.
    Gunbuster and Diebuster are pretty good options if you like mecha.
    Great Teacher Onizuka is good for nice mixture of comedy and drama centered on teaching life lessons.
    There's also a number of movies like Perfect Blue, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, and Barefoot Gen.

    Try Crunchyroll or Hulu as streaming sites. They're sanctioned by companies who own the anime in one way or another, and you won't get cut into with cooldown times (although there are short commercials).

    Some of my favourites:
    Naruto - Generic I know but I can't resist it.
    Naruto Shippuden - Generic I know but I can't resist it.
    Air Gear - If you like ecchiness, humour, romance and sweet "action" scenes then this is a very good watch.
    Inazuma Eleven - I love this Anime, it's about Football but it's brilliant.
    Cowboy Bebop - Funny and lovable characters with abit of sauce on the side [​IMG]
    Angel Beats! - Not really sure how to sell this one, all I can say is I throughly enjoyed it (T.K. FTW).
    Avatar: The Last Airbender - This is a must see for any anime fan, it may have been created in america but it's pure genius (It's not on MAL sorry [​IMG]).
    Nabari no Oh - Another Anime with ninjas and samurai in it only this one is pretty good, the story is kinda dark but it has it's humourous moments.
    They Are My Noble Masters - Pure ecchi and humour toss in a little romance on the side and this is what you get.
    TOKKO - Another ecchi anime this one has a darker story to it though with its demons and gore.
    Fairy Tail - Brilliant characters great story (so far I've recently started watching it) and the humour is pretty good.
    Basquash! - It's about Basketball.....with MECHA ROBOTS!!! FUCK YES it's actually pretty clever, I found myself laughing hard alot of the time, there's also abit of romance in there and sometimes I found myself wanting to screen "OH FFS JUST KISS HER".
    Eureka Seven - Loved it, great humor, good romance, amazing story and the characters are very well created.
    History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi - Where do I begin, typical weakling doing everything he can to learn how to become stronger and defeat any opponent in the name of "justice" (also to oggle a certain persons chesticles)...yes it's another ecchi one but it's hilarious.

    I'm not going to say anything aboiut the movies list I'll let you decide for yourself here, all I will say is check out anything and everything by Studio Ghibli (and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time [​IMG]).

    Sky Blue
    The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
    Origin - Spirits of the Past
    Cowboy Bebop - Knockin' on Heaven's Door
    Castle in the Sky
    Eureka Seven: Pocket Full of Rainbows
    Final Fantasy VII - Advent Children: Complete

    My Neighbour Totoro
    Princess Mononoke
    Spirited Away

    Hopefully you can find something from this bunch that will interest you!

    This isn't all the anime I've watched, there's a tonne more but these are just some of my favourites that I've rewatched a few times or more (or is still watching cause it's still airing).

    I'd sincerely recommend, Hajime no Ippo, Great Teacher Onizuka, BECK, Master Keaton, MONSTER, and perhaps something along the lines of Code Geass. (out of all I've watched)(Mostly Action/Suspense)/Shonen etc.

    http://myanimelist.net/animelist/SunSage (Click Anime/List for summaries/reviews).

    Hajime no Ippo - Boxing/Shonen, Highly Entertaining.
    Great Teacher Onizuka - Slice of Life-Life-Lesson / Comedy-Ecchi
    BECK - Slice of life-lesson / dream chasing
    Master Keaton; Older Artistic Style, Episodic, one of my personal favorites overall.
    Monster - Suspense/Horror
    Code Geass - Mind Bender/Puzzle, Action/Shonen, Keeps you guessing.
    Saikano - Love Story / Venture, extremely sad.
    Golden Boy Short-Hilarious
    FLCL - Short-Hilarious
    One Piece = Great, but slow-start, picks up once character arcs start becoming more revealing.
    ie) ~ Nami/Arlong (etc) ep 50? or so. If you're interested, skimming is okay, but doesn't help
    see the progression of characters/personalities etc.

    Nuraihyon no Mago

    Rikuo Nura is part human and a quarter yōkai (demon). He lives in a house full of spirits along with his yōkai grandfather. Trying to escape his fate of acting like a yōkai, he does good deeds in order to avoid becoming one, despite his grandfather's wish to succeed him as master of the Nura yōkai clan. He eventually comes to terms with his demon blood and decides to take up the position of Young head of the Nura house. Multiple factions aim to stop him or overtake his position, and he must gather friends and allies, a new Hyakki Yakō under his banner of "Fear".

    Here are a few that haven't been mentioned. I quite enjoyed Planetes. The story is good, the attention to detail and realism is awesome. [​IMG]
    The other two aren't bad either.

    Where rockets don't fall.

    Kidding aside, my recommendation
    *Minami-ke (13 eps) - a comedy series about three sisters (there are 3 seasons but you should avoid the 2nd and the 3rd they are atrocious because in the 2nd season the studio changed and it went downhill from there).
    *Excel Saga (26 eps) - crazy hilarious anime.
    *Legend of the Galactic Heroes (110 eps) - space opera with giant space battles and plenty of characters you'll love in hate and has plenty of food for thought.
    *Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin (currently 20 eps out of ???) - occurs after WWII, 7 guys go into jail, bonds are created, people getting beaten and crazy plans are being made.

    Have tried twice to watch Excel Saga... Both times, the first episode caused me an actual migrane. I have not watched more.

    I think you should watch Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. It's about two brothers. Simon and Kamina, and their super blazing souls of pure fighting passion! Also, the union of a man's fighting passion!


    but you should watch it. Like Darkway said, Basquash is a epic anime that i enjoyed. Some moments really touched my heart, And others made my heart warmmm..

    I think you should watch Kiba and Kekkaishi, those are both classics and are in my anime Top 5. both are set in a fantasy world, Kiba is pretty serious but sneaks in humor once in a while. In Kekkaishi, well... Yoshi's jealousy is pretty hilarious
