    I have watched bits and pieces of various anime in the past...and I enjoyed it. But now I find myself more and more interested in it. There is sooo much to choose from out there, I was hoping you folks could give me some tips as to where to start...

    Which series' should i check out first, where can I go for release/series info, best torrent site for anime, and finally...what would be considered the best Gundam series?

    Anime, like any type of media, is quite varied. What kinda stuff are you looking for? Action? Comedy? Romance?

    And I really don't know anything about Gundam.

    gundam wing was awesome and what i grew up so that's my recommendation. also, bleach and naruto both are huge and probably the most mainstream.

    I've seen i bit of naruto here and there...and it kinda reminds me of dragonball, which i don't like.

    Maybe it needs another chance.

    :cool:

    gotta read the manga though, and i don't think i'd recommend it for anime newbs unless they're really interested in it.

    Cowboy Bebob is the best "First Anime" imo. Especially because you can enjoy it dubbed.

    Great...that gives me a lot to go on. It will take me awhile to track that stuff down and give it a watch.

    I am DLing Gundam Seed & Wing right now. I want one of those Gundam models very bad, thanks to ramenoodles.

    Cheapest place to get those?
