    I feel that the vast majority of anime is complete garbage, but I have seen enough amazing anime to think that the artform is capable of some INCREDIBLE feats.

    I am hoping OT anime crew can point me to something new that I haven't seen before but would like.

    Examples of animes I have loved (more or less in order):

    FLCL
    Cowboy Bebop
    Wolf's Rain
    Ghost in the Shell
    Trigun
    Reign the Conqueror

    I also watch Bleach every week. The creativity of the fight dynamics is top notch and makes the show fun, but it has slowed down to the point of exhaustion and I have little interest in DBZ- Hecho Mundo Edition.

    Any suggestions? I was just sitting here wondering if I might be missing out on something incredible...

    I liked elfen lied, watched it all already though.

    I'll have to check of Initial D.

    FMP was good for teh few eps my ex-gf made me watch, but I lost interest shortly thereafter. Maybe I should give it another shot.

    FMA: Hell yes.
    Rurouni Kenshin: Also pretty good
    One Piece: Trash, don't bother
    Never seen the third, I'll have to check it out
    TTGL: Awesome!

    Overall solid suggestions.

    I also liked World Destruction

    I only mentioned One Piece cause he said he watched Bleach. One Piece is not on the same level of those others I listed, but for an ongoing series like Naruto, Bleach, ect. it is pretty well done.

    Are you fucking serious :ugh: :ugh: :ugh:

    Don't listen to this douche canoe, One Piece is one of the most amazing series.

    Would I suggest this anime to you? No. You seem like a very casual anime fan, and One Piece definitely isn't for the casual fan. It's at 380 episodes or so, and every episode is :bowdown: And it's been the most amazing thing watching this journey unfold. But it does require quite a bit of dedication to keep up with the series. So unless you think you can stick with one piece for the long haul, I would probably not bother :dunno:

    Really? Well, maybe you should give One Piece a try. A lot of people are turned off by the style :hs: I'm not going to lie, I initially went :ugh: to the series, but after sitting down and watching it, I couldn't stop, the style really grows on you, I love it. The fillers so good, you wouldn't even know you were watching a filler episode unless you read the manga. I've watched One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach, and while I think naruto and bleach are awesome, One Piece is definitely a couple steps above them.

    Some other animes I would suggest that actually end are Escaflowne, Hajime No Ippo, Gungrave, and TengenToppaGurrenLagann. I think they've already been mentioned in this thread.
