    I never really watched any, expect for maybe some. I've heard of a lot from people I know and from looking around the internet. So what would you think would be the best thing to watch first?

    Looking through your mind
    Death Note is always a good place to start.
    Soul Eater started out ok, then got worse as it came near the end.
    Durarara!! is pretty cool, just finished it.
    Code Geass is like a longer version of Durarara!!

    I dunno if you're looking for REASONS as to why we recommend them, but these are mine. I assumed that you weren't looking for something ongoing.

    I saw School Days. I may look into Elfen Lied. Isn't that one really Bloody? Not that I mind, I just remember seeing a scene from that and it was pretty bloody

    - Gundam series before SEED and Destiny [although i've never watched anything other than SEED, Destiny and 00, people have told me that the other gundam series were much better]
    - Angel Beats
    - Code Geass
    - Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann ? [apparently this was very good as well]

    Cowboy Bebop and Full Metal Alchemist are more common ones I like. One obscure one I think is awesome is Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok.

    I agree, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, is pretty awesome once it gets started. However, if you've watched other series, it does take a while to adjust to the slower pace, but once it revs up, there aren't many show's that can match its awesome.

    Watch Baccano then Durarara.
    I wished I watched Baccano before Durarara since I would of enjoyed it more.

    Also Chaos;Head.

    Gintama is the funniest anime ever. And it's coming back in April 2011! [​IMG]

    Clannad/Clannad After Story is also a good watch in the romance/drama/comedy genre. It's a pretty sad anime [​IMG]

    I think 'Full Metal Alchemist' is the best start -

    Great characters, not too bizarre, brilliant story and lovely animation. Plus you have a choice of the original anime and the remake of it 'Brotherhood' (which has a closer storyline to the manga..if not exact!) I haven't watched Brotherhood yet but i plan to after the storyline goes from my head hehe. It's to do with alchemy.

    If you like bizarre things then I'd suggest 'Azumanga Daioh' - in Japanese! (dubbed is rubbish, the humour gets lost in translation and the voices are awful!) - silly school girls and slice of life.

    If you like things to do with robots, then Mecha - 'Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann' - funny, action packed, and a curving storyline. Also 'Gundam'..which i don't know much about.

    I'll stop there, but there are all sorts of genre, you can help your choice with what sort of things you like:
    Slice of life (everyday things, usually romance and humour are built into it)
    Mecha (robots, action fights)
    Sci Fi - futuristic
    Horror - violence

    Watch them subbed, they're so much better!..especially if you are fond of Japanese!

    There's loads more styles check this site out

    Where rockets don't fall.
    And one of the girls summons/pulls out single bullet guns from everywhere, even from under her skirt (which surprisingly is done in good taste).
