    I'm not a typical anime fan or anything like that, but every guy in the world needs to see Dragonball Z. It was recently remastered and re-edited with no fillers in HD as Dragonball Kai, so check that out RIGHT NOW if you haven't.

    I'm sorry, but I tried hard to get into Bleach but there is SOOOOO MUUUUUUCH FIIILELLLLLLER

    And Naruto is just... I can't. I'm sorry.

    I like Bleach though.

    If you're just getting into Anime you should avoid Naruto and Bleach and watch some others first, considering their length and the fact they are not going anywhere anytime soon...

    Try watching something with a more focused story or you may get turned off.

    Minimal filler
    Yu Yu hakusho is one of my favorites
    Kenshin is also a solid choice
    The original dragon ball is timeless

    And for filler heavy stuff
    Bleach
    Naruto
    Dragon ball Z
    One piece

    All great shows Worth watching all of them if you become a fan of amine

    Lol, HOW could I forget Yu Yu Hakusho? That's a good one. Kenshin is epic as well.

    as a first title, i think Death Note is perfect.

    high school of the dead ( zombie fest)
    Rainbow (drama)
    code geass (action-drama)
    Black Lagoon (action)
    Baccano! (comedy)
    GTO (comedy-Drama)

    obscure title:
    Aoi Bungaku (adaptation of different popular Japanese novel, great if you're interested in Japanese culture)
    Mononoke (supernatural - very artsy)
    Ayakashi - Samurai Horror Tales ( collection of Japanese traditional scary story)

    That is a typo, right?

    Death Note
    Full Metal Alchemist (Brotherhood) (I suggest watching the original first, then Brotherhood)

    Those 2 are good starter anime's.

    FMA: Brotherhood (don't watch the original, this series makes that one worthless)
    Cowboy Bebop
    The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

    One Piece

    Birdy The Mighty: Decode
    Death Note
    Tokyo Majin
    Basilisk
    Bleach (I thought it was alright. I've only seen the first 70 episodes atm but it still seems good)
    Soul Eater
    Paranoia Agent
    Casshern Sins
    Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom
    Ghost In the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
    009-1

    That's all I have to suggest at the moment. If you haven't watch FMA: Brotherhood then I'd suggest that too but it seems just about everyone and their mother has seen it lol

    Action:
    Naruto
    Bleach
    Outlaw Star (Sci-fi)
    Cowboy Bebop (Sci-fi)
    Ghost In The Shell: Standalone Complex (Really good series, might need a bit of a brain to keep up with the story)
    Ghost In the Shell: S.A.C 2nd Gig
    Mai-hime (Action/Romance)

    Romantic Comedy:
    Please Teacher
    Please Twins
    Love Hina
    Chobits
    Ouran High School Host Club
    Ah My Goddess!
    Shuffle!

    Other:
    The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya
    K-On!

    Probably a lot more I could mention, but thats all I could think of at the top of my head.

    Don't get into Naruto. It'll ruin your judgement for good anime and you'll be doomed to liking bad anime forever (unless you can somehow get out of that slump).

    I suggest Cowboy Bebop, One Piece (though the manga's better), The Law of Ueki, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Ouran High School Host Club, Kare Kano, Dragon Ball/Z (NOT GT!), and that's all for now.

    It really depends what you're into, but here are some I really like...

    Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - Just an amazing series. It's a must see for...well, just about everyone.

    FLCL - This one's a little wacky and it's kind of hard to get into, but it' only 6 episodes so it's definitely worth a shot. It's a coming of age story told through symbolism involving bass guitars, baseball bats, eyebrows and tv headed robots.

    Anohana - This one's really new, the 5th episode just came out today, but it's already getting a lot of buzz. Just a fair bit of warning, it's bound to make you so nostalgic you'll melt into a puddle, but the writing and animation is absolutely incredible.

    I would personally avoid the big 3 (Naruto, Bleach, One Piece) simply because there are so many episodes you're bound to get bored somewhere in the middle. Some people swear One Piece is incredible, and you may agree, but I would suggest watching some shorter series before you even try climbing that mountain.
