I'm down to the last couple of series that I want to watch (be done tomorrow or the day after) and I'm now looking for suggestions of new material (any suggestions welcome) to watch.  I've seen all of Bleach, Inuyasha, Full Metal, and Naruto that I care to.

Thank you.   8-)

Ah My Goddess!, Burn Up Scramble, Banner/Crest of the Stars (all), Blood+, Blue Gender, Burst Angel, Chobits, Claymore, Code Geass, Devil May Cry (watching currently), DN Angel, Escaflowne (to be watched tomorrowish), Fate Stay Night, Gunslinger Girl (all), Hellsing (all), High School of the Dead, Love Hina (all), Slayers (all), Spice and Wolf (all), Trigun, Witch Hunter Robin, UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie.

Well, one that I could certainly recommend is Higurashi (English dub by Funimation is titled "When They Cry"; it's actually well done). It can be a bit confusing at first, but I absolutely love it.  ;D

Damn, I wanted to recommend Higurashi but now you beat me to it.

I've mostly only read the manga of Higurashi and only watched the episodes of the Tsumihoroboshi, Saikoroshi and Hirukowashi arcs, but I read that it suffers quite from Adaptation Decay (at least the first season). I've never played the Visual Novels, though, so I can't say how different it actually is. What I can say is that it is one of the greatest mangas, I've ever read. The fact that I hear the Shmion Image Song and use a Takano avatar is a direct result of that.

Anyway, I don't watch many animes (I read mangas more), but Noir is a great series.

Oh, you wanted to recommend Higurashi? I never knew you liked it~.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes is just epic, though its a bit slow paced and its animation is dated as hell.
Yang Wenli Hute!

Desert Punk is always good for shits and giggles.
Desert Punk bloopers

and Sengoku Basara is so ridiculous that its awesome
Basara - PUT YA GUNS ON

As for others I really like .hack/SIGN, Gunbuster, Age of Aquarion, seitokai yakuindomo is a good new one.

I recommend Eden of the East and Durarara. They're both quirky and have an interesting pace to them; I also quite enjoyed the soundtracks, which is a big factor for me with media arts.

I'll look at these next week, as I got 'distracted' and finished the first part of my Claymore storyline (found in the storytelling section).

And keep them coming.  ^_^

*Drums fingers.*

Fairytale
To Aru Majustu No Index (Takes awhile to pick up,  but there is violence/death(I believe) in that series.) I only saw season one, haven't watch season two yet.
Tenge Tenjou(or something like that) School martial arts/tournament base/comedy.
Tsubasa Chronicle(I highly recommend this series) It is martial arts base/world travel base. It is hard to explain, cause I don't want to spoil it.


It will really take me forever to list everything. I have habit of bouncing from one anime and then then the next. If you tell me what type of genre you are leaning more too, I am sure I can help you out with some other older series that hadn't been westernize or if so, didn't get enough hype/popularity to be widely known.

I am not too familiar with many 09 - 10 yearly released animes, I slowed down watching anime in 08. (Mostly because I seen a lot of series and got bored with anime.)

well a loootttt of anime has been suggested, so I wont list off all of them again. But the one series I will recommend is Gunam Wing. My favorite of the Gundam franchise for sure.

By the way, how is Escaflowne? I remember seeing a few episodes a while ago and thinking it might be good, but never following up on it.

Would that be Full Metal Alchemist or Full Metal Panic that you've seen, Hunter?

Let see, if you want unadulterated silly and ridiculous then Excel Saga might be up your alley.  Magic Users Club is another goodie if you like grade school high-jinks with a pinch of magic.  Of course if you have a fuzzy spot for the mecha genre then there's Vandread and Mars Daybreak which plays out bit like Nadesico underwater on Mars.

Both.

Let see, there's also Gatekeepers and Gatekeepers 21 which are pretty light-weight entertainment.  If you want something shoujo then there's Skip Beat about the merry adventures of a girl who will Japan's top idol to spite her ex-boyfriend.  Or Ouran Host Club for some reverse-harem situations with a pinch of cross-dressing.  Also Full Moon is good for a bit of seriousness.

Gundam Wing is far and away the worst of the series, and the least true to the concept presented.   Escaflowne feels like RayEarth Magic Knight.

Really? You like it less than Gundam 00? Because that was just god awful, in my opinion. Meh, maybe I just have a soft spot for Wing since it was really my first anime.

You really hate Wing that much hey? Well, to each their own. But you wont like 00 then. It seemed to me like a crappy (really crappy) remake of Wing.

Out of curiousity, what is your favorite Gundam?
