    So I went outta the whole anime thing for quite some time but looking to start watching it again, can anyone make any suggestions.

    Stuff I've watched and enjoyed before are stuff like death note, elfin lied, shuakuna no shana, rurouni kenshin, dokuro-chan, chobits and love hina. And never got on with cowboy bebop before anyone suggests that. Would like action comedy type stuff

    Cheers guys and gals

    Gokukoku no Brynhildr, it was made by the same man that made Elfen Lied (Okamoto Lynn). It's a horror anime with some comedy and ecchi elements here and there. The anime has 13 episodes, and the manga is still ongoing, with 130 chapters so far (highly recommending you to read the manga if you like the anime).

    I've recently watched Samurai Champloo, from the same studio as Cowboy Bebop (that's what I'm watching next). And it's a great action / comedy! (/ drama)

    If you want some pure comedy, D-Frag and Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, the latter is pretty recent and read the manga if you can't get enough laughter.:rofl:

    Nozaki is funny in very unexpected ways. It's like they send sudden right angle hooks every time.

    Not a big anime fan really, but I enjoyed Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and Attack on Titan.

    Here are some I recommend:

    - Amagi Brilliant Park
    - Nanatsu no Taizai
    - Log Horizon
    - Durarara!!
    - Kiseijuu
    - Akatsuki no Yona
    - Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
    - Gugure! Kokuri-san
    - Sword Art Online
    - Attack on Titan

    If you're a fan of Slam Dunk, then why not watch Kuroko no Basket.

    There's also the one and only Dragon Ball Z.
    As they always say: "Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy every Season of Dragon Ball Z which is pretty damn close."

    Ninja Hatori
    Doraemon
    Crayon Shin-chan
    Kiteretsu
    Dr. Slump
    Kochikame

    What all these anime series have in common is that they're hilarious and quite oldie, although for the likes of Doraemon & Shin-chan they still get new episodes and have way over than 2k-3k now (it's The Simpsons of Japan).

    Sounds like you're all set now but I feel obligated to recommend Konjiki no Gash Bell, it's action+comedy, usually not at the same time.
    And the action's not like villain of the week type, the fights are actually worth watching and fan-service is nonexistent.

    Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood
    Baccano! (And then perhaps Durarara)

    Everything else would depend on what you like.
    Toradora? It seems like a good match for your taste (romcom).

    Also, you could take a look at Red Line, it is a movie, I would say it is Wacky Racers on LSD. It has action and comedy for sure, it is nothing serious but it can be quite enjoyable.

    There are a lot of good anime out there, but I can't think of any other else right now that might suit your taste.

    PS: the first season of JoJo's bizarre adventure (part 1+2)
