A lot of some time passed since I saw one (I'm getting older :D) but the ones I remember right now and loved the most are samurai champloo (my first anime) and death note. After those, I tried some others but never really got into it.

 

My advice is watch samurai champloo if you didn't ;)

I liked Attack on Titans, too. I watched it subbed and loved the original japanese voice-over which is very ambitious and enthusiastic. Warning, story-spoiler:

But I'm not sure if I liked that it turned out that the titans are just transformations of humans. Although this provides lots of potential story plots.

Lastly I'd like to mention the Dragonball saga which will ever be one of my favorites :)

Spice and Wolf is one of my favorites. It's about a trader that meets a wolf goddess named Holo. They get into long-winded discussions about trading and taxes and the prices for gold. It's rather unusual.

To be honest I prefer the one where Ryu kicks the shit out of Fei Long but yes the movie is awesome.

 

 

Sadly every other Street Fighter movie I've ever seen has been truly awful.

cant beleive no one has mentioned Bleach yet, probably one of my favorite all time anime series!

also, the original Guyver series, not the remade series.

Almost anything by studio gibli (spirited away, howls moving castle, princess mononoke), other anime films/series - appleseed, macross plus, dominion tank police, akira, battle angel alita, ghost in the shell, Madox 01: metalskin panic, im sure theres loads more that i just cant think of atm, but certainly my favorites are Bleach and Guyver.

This movie is full of amazing fights but I just picked one to be honest.

Because Bleach is pretty well-known; along with Naruto they are the most famous anime nowadays.

I have a hot friend that likes anime, and one of my pals is interested in it too.

I'm kinda meh about it but I've thought about watching/reading Attack on Titan

Also, Avatar the Last Airbender (I don't care whether you count it or not!) and Teen Titans* (Ditto!)

*Original, not this Go crap

Yes! You are totally right! Its gross and misogynistic and you know, in general, i'm not a fan of just shameless sexualisation. 

 

But in Evangelion's case I think it brings a nice levity to the otherwise dense subject matter.

Attack on titan

 

Baccano! - Don't worry if you have no idea what's happening after the first 2 episodes. There's no main character, just a bunch of events seen through the eyes of many different people.

 

Claymore - Ironically the manga really takes off from where the anime ends.

 

Death note

 

Ergo proxy

 

Ghost in the shell

 

Grave of the fireflies - Don't watch the English dub, the voice actors are ok, but not great.

 

Kill la kill

 

Patlabor

 

Samurai shamploo

Cowboy Bebop

Sword Art Online

Intial D

Vampire Hunter D (the first one)

Samurai Champloo

Basilisk

Bleach

Rurouni Kenshin

Death Note

 

What I put in bold is on Netflix streaming right now (others might be, not sure).

 

I would check out Sword Art Online, its easily one of the best.
