    Well Some Anime i like now are....

    Naruto (all versions)

    Dragonaball z(All versions)

    Beyblade

    I like anime with alot of action and that has a plot that runs deep. I also like to have some set in different dimensions and univeres and what not..Oh if it has creatures that could be any choice.

    Wow... you need to see some good stuff (though DBZ is pretty decent)

    Start out watching FLCL also known as fooly cooly, its only 6 episodes long, but its amazing and mind blowing, simply put the greatest anime ever, I honestly believe that.
    The next anime I would recommend is Noeinn. This one has an awesome story involving the idea of the multiverse, that at any moment one can do infinite different things, and in some universe each one of those things happens, meaning their are infinite universes. This is actually what many scientists believe to be true as well. Its 24 episodes long, and I'd say to watch it all is very rewarding.

    Those are probably my two favorites, but I've seen some other great stuff that I can't remember the names of cuz they're too japanese. Bleach is pretty cool, but I'm not as into it as some of my friends are, there are a lot of filler episodes is my understanding.

    Berserk, Escaflowne, Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop, FLCL, Rurouni Kenshin(the Remembrance OVAs), Now and Then, Here and There, Twelve Kingdoms, and Last Exile are a decent short list of options for you.

    Errrr. FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST (and Brotherhood). Brotherhood is MUCH better in my opinion.

    Also, FLCL, Samurai X, Yu Yu Hakusho, CODE GEASS (EPIC), and uh... those are enough.

    WATCH THEM ALL. NAO. They should keep you busy.

    Check out my sig link for more I have watched and loved.

    I came here hoping to catch a recommendation and ended up lol'ing.

    But seriously... Narutard's plot is so completely transparent it's not funny.

    Things with the deepest plots probably aren't action based.
    Since action based animes, people watch more for the action then anything. Not to say some don't bend boundaries though, but I couldn't name one easily.

    If you want a very good, seemingly messed up story, try When They Cry.
    Won't make any sense until the second season, but it's pretty amazing overall. There's...fucked up violence. Buut not 'action'.
    If you're even the slightest bit curious, I suggest watching the opening. I've hooked a few people on it by makin' 'em watch it.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Either way i'll say right now, you're gonna want to choose if you want

    1: good story
    2: lots of action
    3: try both

    cuz I doubt you'll find both TOO often.

    You could also try Valkyria Chronicles.
    It's an abomination against mankind if you've played the game...but the anime itself is pretty good if you completely ignore it butchering everything the games story worked towards, lol.
    It's a war story. So it has action, and an interesting story. Though compared to the game...focuses a bit too much on a love triangle they threw in. Still, good enough to watch.

    and if you'd prefer pure action with a crap story like DBZ...I got no suggestions. Only anime I watch are visual novel and videogame based (both story driven...so yeah).

    Pardon the language, but there's really no other way for me to get the point across in so few words.
    Stay the FUCK away from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni ("When They Cry - Higurashi", higurashi being a type of cicada). It is so damned fucked up and batshit insane it's not even funny.
    The story, if you can call it that, is so.... WEIRD and confusing. The first season (and the first half of the second season?) are based off a computer novel game and is broken up into 'chapters' that each contain a path of the story. Each chapter is it's own story, but adds pieces of the background. The second season tries to 'fix' the confusion... by adding more confusion. And time travel. Because adding time travel to a confusing story fixes everything.
    The problem with Higurashi no Naku Koro ni is, by the time it starts making sense, it's too late and it seems the staff decided to say 'fuck it' and spell everything out for you. The story loses any shred of mystery that kept you watching despite the confusion.

    Now... not to say it's BAD, because it's really not, but I wouldn't call it good. Decent is more what I would describe it, and it's definitely not something I'd recommend to someone who's new to anime.

    I can also second Death Note. The only anime I ever really got into, after trying 10+ other animes. I don't really like anime.

    Lol twiztidsinz what the hell are you talking about.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Comprehension has nothin' to do with being new to anime or not. WTC was the 3rd anime I ever watched.

    aand I guess before I post, i'll throw the majority of that in a spoiler since it...well, could be considered one.

    katekyo hitman reborn is by far one of the best animes, the 1st 20 episodes are like gag.. only comedy, after the 20 episodes the anime gets more fights, etc.... for me the best anime i've ever watched and i loved it... hope that it comes back this year

    i also watched Giant Killing - loved it and i watch bleach - love it too [​IMG]

    what do you mean it comes back this year? you don't need to wait or it to be localized if that's what you mean. there are some fansubs you can watch online.

    i love the new vongola gear in the manga, can't wait to see it in anime. it just gets better and better.

    Gintama FTW if you like full-fledged comedy. Also some action and 'tear-jerking' scenes. It parodies a LOT of DBZ.... and more. [​IMG] It's pretty amazing how a character-driven (not so story-driven) comedy anime spans more than 200 episodes and the fifth season just started recently.

    it's about this samurai, Sakata Gintoki, who does all kinds of odd jobs to pay his rent along with his apprentices. The setting is in an Alien-conquered Edo (old name for Tokyo) where the use of swords is prohibited.

    Full Metal Alchemist. (Brotherhood) It doesn't matter too much which one you watch first and which one you watch second. Although I'd recommend watching the original first, then brotherhood. Brotherhood is much better, but you'll have a better overall experience if you watch the original, then brotherhood.

    Deathnote is a must watch if you enjoy thriller or mystery.

    Fruits Basket is also pretty good, I'd definitely recommend it.
