I'd suggest all the Macross franchise. More mechas in there than you can shake a pair of pantsu at.

For a modern short series Susei no Gargantia has an interesting take on the mecha theme. Very likeable characters as well.

 I'm watching quite a few different animes at the moment.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, I've really enjoyed  so far and some of the names in the first two seasons have made me giggle. Robert E. O. Speedwagon, TonPetty, and the Doobie monster to name a couple of them.

Akame Ga Kill looks like it might be pretty good. First episode would've been better without the opening it's a little spoilery and kind of ruins the surprise a little at the end of the first episode.

Invaders of the Rokajyoma that just started has had me laughing. First 15 minutes were a little slow but I was laughing a lot by the end.


Some mecha anime I would recommend taking that I enjoyed and you might want to take a look at in addition to Haibane's sugestions are:

Linebarrel of Iron which I just finished and thought was pretty good.

Asura cryin' wasn't bad either, it's a supernatural and mecha fusion.

I watched Breakblade some time ago and some of the combat scenes were really good. Format is a little different with 6 hour long episodes instead of 12 or 13,  20 minute episodes.

Finally Total Eclipse is worth a look as well. I didn't finish it because of some real life things but I got about halfway through the season  and I enjoyed what I saw. Been meaning to go back and finish it.

They're all up on Crunchyroll as well which is nice.

I'm not a library of Anime shows, so this is a difficult task for me.

Find a show that has;

*Great, enjoyable plot.
*Well designed characters.
*DOESN'T constantly tease the viewer with a potential relationship that never delivers.
*Isn't just comedic relief or completely bonkers.

No Game No Life has a very unique plot and should be checked out. The two main characters go from playing a poker game for a bag of coins to blowing up the universe in 6 episodes and then finishing it off with a coin toss to determine the fate of nations in the last episode.

Another great one, easily the best anime of the past 5 years, is Shingeki no Kyojin. It is basically survival horror but replace zombies with 4 stories tall retarded naked giants that only want to eat all of humanity.

I would recommend Gundam 00 personally.  Unlike most mecha anime, this has such a realistic and believable story and you have to pay attention to every detail as nothing is considered "minimal and doesn't affect the story in its own way."

Gundam 00 is just a bad rehash of the plot in zeta gundam. Stick with the UC universe for your gundam needs.

I don't know exactly if it's everyone's cup of tea, but Arpeggio of Blue Steel- Ars Nova is a good, self-contained series that works well as a means to ease into the manga it is adapted from.

Meditations on what it means to be human, wrapped up in tense WWII-inspired submarine action, a nice bit of humour, and some cute girls mixed in.

My favorite Anime will always be Vision of Escaflowne, I enjoy the story and the characters. Gundam wise my fav is War in the Pocket, I also enjoyed G Gundam as well...

Need to sit down and rewatch RahXephon, while I wait for the next part Ranma 1/2 to be released. Glad they are re-release them in uncut form....

Can you be a bit more specific on what genre you enjoy?

Since you mentioned 'no teasing with a non-delivering relationship' are you looking at romance stories?

Some ideas:

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - 2 series and a movie. A high school relationship tale with a difference. Make sure you watch the first series in the broadcast order which is a non-linear order and makes the story more confusing but adds much more impact.

Mawaru Penguindrum - a family crisis of bizarre proportions and causes. Same director as Revolutionary Girl Utena so expect a weird and wonderful ride.

Hyouka - very cute and with a lovely ending. Very pretty artwork.

Usagi Drop - something very, VERY different. A slice of life story of a 30 year old single man suddenly facing bringing up a 6 year old girl. I found this terribly touching, made me cry a lot!

Koi Kaze - a rather blunt and at times disturbing look at older brother/younger sister incest. Not for the sexually prude!

Outside of Koi Kaze, which caught my interest, I would follow through on each of these as I've rated them highly form personal reviews.

There's Cowboy Bebop which is a landmark. First episode on, you can tell a journey is going to begin

Stein's Gate is right there in a time traveling thriller and making you care of the characters from start to finish.

Terror no Zankyou- This anime has started on the tenth of July this year and it involves terrorism. Coming from the same director Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Kids on the slope and Macrosse, he has made multiple works to stand out as classics. This is one I'm hoping to continue the trend and the quality of the animation is Hollywood movie budget worthy. The first three minutes of the first episode would blow the budget of normal anime studios.

Finished Black Lagoon Roberta's Blood Trail... The Black Lagoon's are a must watch, though the Hansel and Gretel arc is really disturbing. No real romance to speak of, but the characters are interesting and a series full of badasses. The soundtrack is great as well, the story is done in arcs so no real big storyline to speak of.

I'll throw in a recommendation for Air as a nice bittersweet story with strong characters, interesting weaving of plot and a tearjerker ending. It also has some truly beautiful music.

I've watched too many anime's to list, unfortunately.  :-[
The most recent one I've been watching is Space Dandy. I don't know why but I just think it's so funny since it makes no sense at all. My favorite episode thus far is the one with "all the dandy's".  ;D

I watched 12 episodes of No Game, No Life.  It is still ongoing and is an awesome anime. It is about a brother and sister gamer pair that are teleported to a fantasy world where violence is forbidden and all disputes are settled with games.

Love Hina.

I was quite flustered with how the makers designed Narusegawa so "maturely" (she was endowed like a motherf$&#er), yet she was just out of Highschool.

Still, nice slice of life show.

Enormous breasts on teenaged females is just one of those things with anime. *shrug* A lot of anime is made by males for males, you just have to deal with it.

Yoko Littner from Gurren Lagann is 14 years old, apparently...

I call bullshit on that statement. You got to remember that most of the 'anime' we have in the United States are targeted for certain groups. In Japan their are loads of anime shows for every gender and age group. I have watched and enjoyed shows that didn't fit in that mold. Detective Conan and A Little Snow Fairy Sugar  to name two.

I watched it, not knowing what I was walking into.

It was funny, it was dramatic, it had it's sexual innuendos. But above all. It had it's story.

I literally cried on the final episode.
