Im a car nut, so my favorite is Initial D. Other than that, Appleseed was a good one, Neon Genesis Evangelion was also good (made me question my sanity a few times at the end, but good nonetheless). Gundam was ok, I loved DBZ when I was younger. Other than that, I never really got TOO far into anime.

I rely on the intarwebs for my anime (aka AniDB).

FLCL doesn't "suck." Its certainly better than your catgirl-tentacle-schoolgirl anime, kayosoni Laughing

My personal favourites would be:

Full Metal Panic (biased heavily towards The Second Raid)
Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex
Macross Zero
Gundam 08th MS Team
Hellsing
and possibly Blood+

(PS - can I give a shout out to Exosquad anyway?)

In no particular order...

After Century Gundam X. Probably the best of the G-Wing-X triad of AUs; I'm still struggling to get myself to like Zeta Gundam, and while I do enjoy Gundam SEED and SEED Destiny, I recognise that my reasons for doing so are pretty shallow (Lunamaria Hawke <3).

Rune Soldier. Same creator and world as Record of Lodoss War, but it definitely has a more comic bent to it. This is every D&D session you've ever played (and survived) while drunk.

RahXephon. Superficially, it's an Evangelion clone, but where Eva descended into a dark, blood-drenched angst-fest buried under pseudo-religious trappings and a lot of unnecessary philosophy, RahXephon never lets its own mythos lose its fantastical, inspiring quality. Oh, and it has a more varied and likeable cast. And a lead who you don't want to smack in the mouth by midway through the series. And an ending that leaves you feeling content and at piece rather than as if someone just punched you in the gut and stole thirteen hours of your life.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. Smart, inventive, funny when it wants to be, dramatic when it wants to be, with some of the best-balanced action sequences in any modern anime. Frankly, if you don't like this you're probably a hater.

Azumanga Daioh. I'll let Dark Shikari sing this one's praises. Suffice to say it's some of the most relaxing fluff I've ever had the joy of watching.

Full Metal Panic. Modern day mecha/espionage/high-school comedy series. It doesn't do anything particularly new or ground-breaking, but what it does do, it does so well that you really don't care that it's not treading any new ground.

The Vision of Escaflowne. Epic fantasy romance/action/drama with mecha elements. It's not simplistic or childish by any means - Escaflowne's world is a rich, complex, and dangerous one where violence and death are stark realities - but I found that it appealed strongly to my inner child and aroused the same sort of feelings as Mysterious Cities of Gold did back when I was five.

Uchuu no Stellvia. High school in space; it's one of the few genuinely feel-good anime that doesn't leave your teeth hurting, and the ship movements are very much akin to EVE's, although the world itself is not. I defy anyone to watch this and not love Arisa Glennorth.

Witch Hunter Robin. Modern day occult drama. Slow-paced, but it has a dreamlike, lanquid quality instead of simply seeming to drag on. The whole show has a slightly unreal quality to it, and the characters - Robin herself especially - seem just a little fragile and disconnected from their world. It's not for everyone, but it's the sort of show where there's no middle ground in its fandom: you either don't care for it, or you love it.

Bubblegum Crisis. Whether it's the Megatokyo 2032-33 OAV series, or the Tokyo 2040 TV series, this is an enduring favourite of mine simply because the characters that drive it are so well-crafted and likeable. Avoid Bubblegum Crash like a hostile HAC with leprosy and the plague, though.

Interesting story about NGE- They ran completely out of money by episode 20. They couldn't afford animators, so they used stock footage, storyboards, and discarded footagee from earlier episodes. They managed to snag on the Voice Actors because they had full contracts, but most artists were paid by the hour.

I'm quite disturbed that no one has mentioned Jungle Wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu. It is clearly the best anime of all time, no questions asked!

Incidentally, it is also the only anime I have watched every episode of and found entertaining.

Ah! I've heard of it. I have to disappoint you, though, I've not seen it. Razz

A friend of mine kept recommending it to me, but I never got around to watching any. Now that you've reminded me, I just might.


You could just ask where I live and get here with portable USB-HDD Wink.

For me I like animes that are unique and different from normal usual anime. Naturally I watch all kind of anime (harem animes ftw). If you like not-so-mainstream ones, try these:

----------------------------------
Now and then, Here and there (One sick puppy)

Green Legend Ran

Elfen Lied (Brutal violence ftw)

Legend of the Galactic Heroes (Based on a novel series, extreme well made series for more mature audience)

Trigun

Zipang (New series, very intresting anime. There is some talking on certain forums about how this anime will never be released in USA and I think I know why Laughing)

Space Ship Aggaruter (I think I typoed name Laughing)

Ranma (Well what can I say? Harem AND comedy. Currently rewatching all those kazillion episodes)

Juuni Kokki (If you havent watched it, you have missed alot)

Scrapped Princess (Nice refreshing story and not so typical after all)

Azumanga Daioh (Embarassed)

FLCL (When you watch you go: WTF. When you stop watching your even more WTF)

Great Teacher Onizuka (O M F G! There is even JDrama of this series!)

Infinite Ryvius (Nice space anime)

Vandread (another very nice space anime)

Maison Ikkoku (Very fun and generally speaking "normal people and no magic or mechas"-concept)

Excel Saga (Another WTF anime series. All Hail Ipalazzo)

.//hack-Sing (For us MMO addicts. "How come I must know, when the obsession needs to go" ..)

Video Girl AI (You know.. for your needs you rent a videotape but..)

Record of Lodoss War (Remember, second part of show is better than first one Wink)

Kimagure Orange Road (80'ish Harem animes rules!)

RahXephon (Better than NGE but same genre)

Stellvia the Universe (As someone already said, very good stuff)

Battle Athletes Victory (If you favor sports anime .. with SPACE theme Wink)

Irresponsible Captain Tylor (Utterly silly spaceship series. Must for EVE fanatics)
----------------------------------
Hope people find something new to watch from this list. Cool

I'm sure I mentioned Guu in my list, and How can I forget FLCL! great anime.


As for Neon Genesis this is what I heard:

The REAL NGE ending is the movie "end of eva", but due to it's contents (huge bible references and Shinji ****ing) the TV people deiced not to show it. Thus at the last minute they had to put together a new ending for the show (EG the "TV" ending). This is the one made form stock footage and storyboards.

The wierd thing is if you watch the real ending and then watch the real ending a few times and then watch the TV ending you can see how they were trying to put the same mesage across.

Any one watch Monster, I've only just started watching it but it;s by one of my fav Manga writers.

Evangellion was very good, sadly the abysmal ending to it really spoiled the whole thing for me. Took me months to finally work out what happened in the end.

Actually, that was mostly down to the director going proper medically bat**** insane, and gainax running entirely our of money. Which is why they had to wait a while to release the 1st version of the ending, and then the second part, which were then semi-merged into the final version of the ending movie - no cash to do the animation with, and a director that made the mad hatter from alice in wonderland look well-balanced.

My favs:
(don't kill me)

Crest of the Stars
(Which has 3 series:
1. Crest of the Stars
2. Banner of the Stars
3. Banner of the Stars 2)

Trigun
Cowboy Bebop
Inuyasha
FullMetal Alchemist
Robotech (Macross Saga)
Voltron (The first one, not the crappy digital remake)
.hack//sign

And that's about it for me... I frequently watch Adult Swim on Cartoon Network if I am up at the time, and there's something good on. Though, I don't sit there and wait for something good to come on, either. Razz
