Feudal, epical -> Record of Lordoss War, Berserk, Bastard(6 OVAs, but fantastic) and Slayers(all them)
Mutants, near future -> E's Otherwise, Hellsing, Full Metal Alchemist, X (TV and the OVAs), Witch Hunter Robin, Gantz...
Fight -> Airmaster (amazing!), Samurai X, Shadow Skill, Condor Hero (great chinese martial art story), Saint Seya, Shura no Toki(really, really amazing), ninja scroll(the OVA is the better).... Samurai 7...
Cute -> Girls Bravo, Love Hina...
Special indication: Hikaru no Go, Flame of Recca, One Piece, Naruto and Hunter x Hunter!
Definately worth your time (if you're into the action/comedy genre):
One Piece - Always and forever my #1 favorite. Pirates, slapstick, adventure and drama that has brought most of my guy friends to tears. XD
Grenadier - New! But it does feature a girl kicking more a** than the male lead character.
FullMetal Alchemist - Funny, smart, and great animation. What more do you need?
Samurai Champloo - Nicely animated with a touch of humor. Plus you get Samurai action? What else do you need? Plus Kazuya-sama does some voice-acting in it. XD
Nice (if you're into serious action):
Berserk - If you haven't seen this, you're missing an epic. The manga is WAY better than the series, plus there's a beautious game coming to PS2.
Pretty good (if you just like blood and shameless nudity):
Elfen Lied - A short but sweet series in the horror genre. I didn't find it very scary, but cute girls ripping men (and women) limb from limb is pretty entertaining. Plus the first episode is like %90 nude women. Come on guys, you know you wanna watch it.
Tenjou Tenge - The manga is borderline hentai, but I love it. Chicks (like me) enjoy the action, guys like the shameless shower scenes. XD The anime was pretty good, 24 episodes, but they better continue the series eventually. o.o;
Tsukiyomi - Moon Phase - I'm starting to like the series, the cute girl as the vampire and the guy as the damsel in distress is a pretty neat twist.
Everything else (that I enjoy):
Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO) - I like this series alot, but some say it's an aquired taste. It's education like you've never seen it before! XD Plus there's some great scenes in the anime. The manga differs ever so slightly.
Tactics - It reminds me of Yami no Matsui, and I enjoy my (kinda) Shonen-ai series. It's got great animation and many bishies. Plus it's cute and funny.
It's a buddist-themed demon-beat-'em-up with what seems to be a deep plot.
Kyou Kara Maou! - I eagerly await each episode of this hilarious Shonen-ai show. Guys should check this out as well, it's just so...wrong! I love it, and I get alot of laughs out of it, plus the story seems to be pretty deep (I hope), and I wish it'll keep going after 26 episodes (currently 23 available, thanks AonE).
That's it for now. XD Just some of my personal faves, plus there are the obvious popular series like Naruto. And others that are good, but I didn't go into detail, like Sunabouzo. Anyways, there's alot out there, you've just gotta try 'em out.
I'll stop rambling now, it's my habit to post short essays rather than small messages. XD You should see me in a chat room.
Golden boy - Ecchi/Comedy/Romance
DNA^2 - Ecchi/Comedy/Romance
Graveyard of the flies - Its a realistic story of two siblings during a war
Pom Poko - Watch how raccons save their village "Henge no jutsu!"
My Neighbor Totoro - two sibling just transfered to a new village and they came face to face with weird animal.
Shinchan : Adult Empire Strikes back - A naustalgic anime which tries to bring the past back but its a complete laugh trip
Yeah, Studio Ghibli is usually a good bet. Spirited Away is my favorite (though I have yet to see Totoro, yeah I know I know, its near the top of my list (but I was gonna buy it when Disney released it... oops they didn't.... well maybe in February..... oops gotta wait some more (better be worth the wait)).
huh, so many titles...
Ranma 1/2 - comedy/fight/romance, my fav series, it has it ALL :>
I's - simply great romance...
Azumanga daioh - funniest comedy ever!
Dragon half - old, but still great comedy
Slayers - a must-see if you like fantasy
Full Metal Alhemist - just read some posts above
Kanon - greates drama ever!
Initial D - who doesnt like racing ?!
Hikaru no Go - it made me want to play GO
and many more like: Cowboy Bebop, Evangelion, Chobits, Love Hina, Kimagure Ornge Road, Hack Sign, Digi Charat, Ghost In The Shell, Shingetsutan Tsukihime, Oh! My goddness... theres even more :>
Hikaru no Go (Who knew anime about the game of go could be this good?) Grave of the Fireflies (Very sad. Mentioned earlier) Hunter X Hunter (Kinda reminds me of dragonball, but deeper, more touching, and without the rabid fandom. Short synopsis: boy goes on quest to find father he never met) Gankatsuou (Just got into this myself. Anime Count of Monte Cristo) Genshiken (An anime series about the members of an otaku club. Cute)
For those who like mythical/fantasy, I recommend Juuni Kokki AKA Twelve Kingdoms. Early eps may confuse you but if you stick with it the story will begin to explain itself and keep you utterly gripped to the end. Fantastic story set in a very detailed world.
