    As for as Action goes you are going to get all the usual Naruto, Bleach, One Piece etc.
    But some I reccomend are:
    Still airing:
    -Heroman
    -Highschool of the dead (OTT on fanservice but I like it to say the least.)
    -Katanagatari (Really nice art style, airs monthly though.)
    -Nurarihyon no Mago (Whilst the Anime is pretty bland at the moment it should start getting a lot better soon.)
    Completed:
    -Senkou no Night Raid
    -To aru Kagaku no Railgun
    -To aru Majutsu no Index
    -Black Rock Shooter (OVA)
    -Code Geass
    -Cowboy Bebop
    -Darker than Black
    -Death Note
    -Durarara!!
    -Fullmetal Alchemist (Brotherhood)
    -Higashi no Eden (Not so much Action but still great.)
    -Gintama
    -D. Gray Man
    -Soul Eater
    -Trigun

    And the list goes on...

    Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann would be perfect for you if you like action.
    It's a great anime, and one of my favorites, too.

    action anime, huh?

    some old ones i have watched thousands of times before:
    flame of recca
    yu-yu hakusho (ghost fighter)
    samurai X (rurouni kenshin???)
    dragon ball/Z/GT

    ...

    FMA: brotherhood (brotherhood is better than the first iteration, much closer to the manga)
    naruto (seems there's no love for naruto here, but if you're tired of the classic ninja in black thing, try it)
    hajime no ippo (this one is ongoing, i think)
    any gundam anime (the whole point of the mech genre is to have big robots fighting)
    the law of ueki (kinda weird anime, but there is quite a lot of action)

    hope this helps. enjoy the anime, man (uh, miss? not sure)

    I'd second FMA: Brotherhood. Even if you didn't read the manga (I didn't) it's still very easy to understand.

    I'd also say Soul Eater. It's a lot like Bleach in terms of action, but it has an actual ending to it.

    i third this notion

    i just loved kaminas catch phrase "just who the hell do you think i am"

    i sometimes freak people out asking them this when someone walks up to me to ask me a question once some one ran away

    Also, if you'll like TTGL, then I would highly recommend Needless.
    Even though there's a lot of fanservice, it's a great anime with a great story and plenty of action.
