    Gurren Lagann. That is all you need to know.

    Free online. Should still be on the Youtube Manga Studio channel unless the official DVD release ruined that.

    Well I tend to find alot of free series on Funimation and Hulu. When those dont suffice I use GoGo anime though that site is shall we say questionable.

    If you need some direction on what shows you may enjoy, check out the internet review site Animerica. I find their cover to covers to be entertaining and informative enough on shows that I havent seen to decide if they will be my thing, though I dont agree with them on all shows.

    One would be a single series anime called Now and then, Here and there. Its a great coming of age story about a young man from our world thrust into a strange steam punkish post apocalyptic land with forced training of children into child soldiers for a mad mans army. It deals with some heavy subjects and might make one shed a few tears before it is over.

    Everything is free on the Interwebz if you know where to look. I have no idea if everything in this list is available on legit free sites or not though since I own a good portion of it and am too lazy to see if it's all on Hulu.

    Ghost in the Shell - all of it especially the laughing man incident (first stand alone complex)
    Blood and Blood Plus - but not Blood C
    Noir
    Stink Bomb - part of Memories. you can find a fan dub on youtube. If you find the sub, that's the better option.
    Claymore

    Nadesico
    Hellsing Ultimate
    Ergo Proxy
    Noir
    Bubblegum Crisis

    Appleseed - The movie. Haven't watched the series.
    Armitage III
    Ninja Scroll
    Perfect Blue
    Guyver - original. although I'm sure the remake is fine, but I think they edited out the blood and arm rippings

    Basilisk
    FLCL
    Fushigi Yugi
    Black Lagoon
    Danganronpa - based on the video game
    Persona 4 - also based on the game. there seems to be a newer series (golden) as well that I haven't watched yet

    Fate/Zero
    Witch Hunter Robin
    Full Metal Panic
    Blue Gender
    The Third

    Samurai Shodown - It was on YouTube at one point.
    Final Fantasy Legend of the Crystals - movie. It's on YouTube.
    YouTube - Steam - Twitter

    What? No recommendations for Cowboy Bebop and Full Metal Alchemist? For shame! :wink:

    But yeah, regarding Full Metal Alchemist - You should know (or maybe you do?) that there are two series with the same name. The one mentioned and FMA: Brotherhood. While the first series was created at the same time as the manga, it finally got to close to it and had to create a second season of fillers. However, now that the series is done Brotherhood is more "attuned" to the original source material. :smile:

    And for the record, I do strongly recommend some Lupin the 3rd. "A Woman Named Fujiko Mine" can be seen both for mature viewers, as well as an introduction to the main characters.

    Made in Japan. Based on Shirow's manga. Pretty sure it counts as anime.

    And Shirow is great.
    If CO had to be given some manga parts based on Shirow's graphic style I could even tolerate it.

    But then, Shirow's way of drawing faces probably isn't 'cute' enough for modern anime fans.

    You're Under Arrest! remains to this day as my favorite anime of all time. Creator also did Ah! My Goddess.

    Nothing too outrageous. Just a slice of life anime revolving around two female cops and their relationships concerning their professional and personal lives. A nice blend of humor, feels and police action. A lot of detail has been put in the animation and artwork involving the city of Tokyo and automobiles set in the 90's too and it has aged quite well.

    From what I have seen (the first 4 episodes), Fate/Stay Night is fascinating as a show.

    Basically the world has wizards who summon people to help them fight rival wizards to get the Holy Grail.

    Said people who are summoned tend to be either people who have unusual talents, or in many cases historical or mythological figures.

    The protagonist summons King Arthur. And ends up falling in love with *cough* him.
    And it's all sweet and awesome and the fights aren't as drawn out and silly as in some fighting-focused shows, and the soundtrack is pretty decent.

    Beyond FSN, the next show I would recommend is Ouran High School Host Club which, on its surface is everything I hate in anime, yet it somehow is a guilty pleasure of mine, and I will watch the entire series in a marathon on a friday night through to saturday morning from time to time, as I have done before. It's... bizarre, and I love and hate it for being so.

    Next show I'd recommend is Tsukihime. It's... Unusual. Basically, artist girl helps some manga artists save their home. She has a jellyfish fixation. The artwork as a whole is AMAZING.

    After that I'd recommend Welcome to the N.H.K, simply because it's actually surprisingly cerebral despite the first few episodes seeming like it's a simple concept. It pretty much follows the life of a severely depressed and a little bit manic NEET (basically the kind of nerd who has given up on the outside world) as he gets dragged out of his safety net by someone who actually spoiler is just as bad as he is, and also explores Japanese nerd culture quite interestingly to someone like me who figured it'd be much the same as in the UK.

    There is a show I vaguely remember being awesome, it was called Occult Academy or something. Basically a tech and camera wielding guy from the future is sent back in time to prevent a major cataclysm, seeking the help of a daughter of a magic academy in the past. Or something. I remember enjoying it mostly because it had an assertive female character who wasn't necessarily a tsundere archetype for a main character.

    In a similar vein, Speedgrapher was decent, not least because its opening theme is "Girls on Film" but because it had a very much supernatural-psychological thriller theme going on, and the action in particular was well done, with characters looking dynamic and amazing, and the villains being kind of horrible and horrific and terrifying and in a way the main character is kind of not all good too and just watch it okay?

    Then I'd round it all off with watching Dennou Coil. The show itself is kind of dull, the plot is weak in my opinion, but it's the most interesting depiction of augmented reality glasses in fiction i have ever seen, so from a "what is kind of possible at least in overall style with future tech" perspective it's fun, but from an entertainment perspective, eh, you can give it a miss I suppose.

    You didn't state what types of anime you were looking for so people are just throwing names out all over the place. There are a bunch of anime genres some of which you may want to avoid. However the number one anime must see by your eyes only is clearly:

    Boku No Pico


    Okay I lied, don't watch that. Don't even type it into Google. Just forget about it and move on.


    If you want some currently airing anime there's a few different types at the moment.

    Sabagebu! - Comedy, one of the funniest anime's I've watched too be honest however may not be for everyone.

    Zankyou no Terror - Psycho Thriller, a really good anime some of the scenes in it are amazingly done and it really keeps you on your seat.

    I'm watching a few others however I doubt you would like them much. As for the more popular ones I am watching currently airing there is.

    Akame ga Kill! and Sword Art Online II


    If you want to know of a full list of my favourite anime's that I'd suggest to you I'd kinda have to know what you like because it'd take me a while to list it all out and in catagories so it isn't too random looking name wise. I like something in most genres, the only real one I never got into that much is mecha and... Hentai. <_< Don't see a point in it.

    If you want something that will get you ostracised and considered a pervert if watching in public, I recommend Kiss X Sis, which perplexes me a lot.
    It's basically your standard little sister fetish story, blah blah blah, half siblings blah blah blah hormones and shenanigans, but completely stripping it of everything that is actually porn and just leaving the basic plot of the story that people see time after time.

    It's like if the "hot pizza guy meeting hot customer on a delivery" plot on a live action porn ust turned into a thirty episode series about a lady repeatedly ordering pizza, getting to know the delivery man well, but without any sexy shenanigans, just mild flirting if that.

    It's strange and because of that it's worth a recommendation from me because seriously, what is this?

    Here are some of my favorites. There are not many friends of mine who don't at least "LOVE" some of these choices.

    Watch them. Judge for yourself.

    Psycho Pass
    Black Lagoon
    Ninja Scroll
    Gunsmith Cats (My personal favorite)

    Gunsmith Cats (ガンスミス キャッツ Gansumisu Kyattsu?) is a Japanese seinen manga series written and illustrated by Kenichi Sonoda. It was published in Kodansha's Afternoon from 1991 to 1997 and was followed between 2004 and 2008 by a sequel series Gunsmith Cats Burst which included the same characters and situations.

    The series describes the adventures of young women fighting crime in Chicago, Illinois.
    There are a series of three videos.

    Definetly NOT WATCH Sword Art Online! I Disagree

    The Protagonist of this anime is the Biggest Mary Sue/Gary Stu I have ever seen in anime, the writers don't know how a MMORPG work and they try to throw as much as Fanservice and Tentacle Grape as they can
    All the Girls in this anime are complety Idiots who constantly need to get Rescued by their Boyfriend who is apparently an antisocial kid genius who builds a Harem and everyone Love him

    Watch Log Horizon instead or .Hack// Series.

    I also Suggest
    1. Death Note
    2. D-Grey Man
    3. Soul Eater
    4. Elfen Lied (you will stop feel Sympathy for the Heroine, she is worst in manga)
    5. Kill la Kill
    6. Attack on Titan
    POWERFRAME REVAMPS, NEW POWERS and BUG FIXES > Recycled Content and Events and even costumes at this point

    well to be honest Kill la Kill is mostly Whimsical, it combines Action, Humor and Drama alright

    and the Nudity is just a Running Joke/Gag (NUDISTO BEACH~!)
    Besides it has "Fanservice" for everyone since Male characters also get Attention

    I really Enjoyed that Anime and I was Surpised by it
