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

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)

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

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.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air
