    So I'm finishing up Gungrave right now, and I need something new to watch....

    I've already watched or already am watching:
    Naruto
    Bleach
    Berserk
    Baccano!
    Last Exile
    Hajime no Ippo
    Cowboy Bebop
    Samurai Champloo
    Gungrave
    Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
    Initial D
    FLCL
    uhh... if I've forgotten others, they're probably too crappy anyways

    Oh, and I enjoy series with deep storylines (like Serial Experiments Lain, maybe? I've only heard about it)

    Slam dunk.
    Give it a try, and absolute classic anime. You can't go wrong, good story line, outstanding characters, touching sportsmanship, and very funny comedy.

    Ghost in the Shell and Full Metal Alchemist are 2 very epic animes. (The former having a very complex story line)

    Ever tried Trigun?
    Can't go wrong with it, it's pretty good in terms of character development and twists.

    Yes, but give it a chance. I didn't like Basketball either, but this anime is simply amazing.

    I read the manga and it was a little overwhelming (perhaps it was because I read it at 1 in the morning), is the anime much better?


    Thanks for the replies.

    Outlaw star is good stuff.
    Ranma is always fun.
    Patlabour giant robot revolver for the win.

    I can recommend a couple excellent movies...
    Appleseed and the more recent appleseed ex (great cgi)
    Vampire Hunter D
    Akira (a classic)
    Ninja Scroll

    uhmm... what else
    Elfen Lied
    Gantz (I really liked that series)
    Ghost in the Shell (2nd gig too)

    Girls Bravo wasn't bad, though I still haven't figured out what ever possessed me to watch it after the first episode. Can't say I really liked the Naruto line of stuff, though I did like DragonBall and Inu Yasha.

    edit:/ all else fails, there is always Sailor Moon [​IMG] (and yeah, I'm definitely kidding on that one)

    Ranma was REALLY repetative, and none of the characters were developed much...
    Flame of Recca is a much better choice! ^^
