    I have been trying to get into anime for a while now, but I just can't connect with the show enough to actually care what happens and watch more than 5 episodes.

    Do you have any suggestions as to which animes were REALLY good, so maybe I will like them?

    I've tried the basics: DragonBallZ, Yuyu hakusho, One Piece

    and some fancy ones: Trigun, etc.


    Any suggestions?
    P.S. What is the name of that anime whose main character is dressed in an all green jumpsuit? I think I remember liking that one, but I forget what it is called.

    I like the kinds with fighting, but superpowers are a little out there for me.

    Yuyu hakusho was cool. It is the show that I would theoretically like, but there was nothing that pulled me toward it, it was just cool to watch.

    It seems as though you have short attention span.

    Fighting, shooting, no superpowers, relatively concise arcs that keep you interested. Try Black Lagoon, typical suggestion but one that's pretty surefire.

    I like comedy shows, and some action shows, but since most anime isn't comedic, I have been looking for more action.

    Shows that I watch: Simpsons, South Park, The Office.

    I also liked Drive, but it didn't last long (cool action show that was cancelled after two weeks).

    Some cool action movies that I liked were: Matrix, Fight Club, Minority Report

    Hope this helps

    I actually recommend you finish YuYu Hakusho, if you haven't. It starts off pretty mediocre, but if you stick with it, it has some pretty kick ass fights. In fact the later episodes is just one big tournament after another.
