    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?

    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

    I don't mind Ongoing. And no, I'm not looking for reasons, just suggestions.

    - 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

    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).
