Absolutely nothing happens.

Haruhi Suzumiya,

25 episodes of pandering to a socially-retarded brat.

Tenga Toppa Gurren Laggan, Black Cat, Nichijou,

Never watched these, but if they're like the previous two I'll take this as a warning not to watch either.

(Yeah yeah; opinions and shit. Bite me.)

Digimon is really good. I recommend the third season/series, AKA Tamers, as it's actually kinda dark, and takes place in a different reality then the earlier ones, so you don't have to watch those.

The only anime i've ever actually enjoyed (besides Dragonball/Pokemon when I was little) is YuYu Hakusho. So that's going to be my recommendation.

Highschool of the Dead
+ Lots of action
+ Excellent English dub
+ Likable characters
+ Realistically talks about the social and political impact of a zombie apocalypse
+ Deliciously evil antagonists
- Too much fanservice
- Male to female character ratio is cliche
- Dialogue is occasionally cheesy

School Rumble
+ Kenji Harima
+ Kenji Harima
+ Kenji-mother-fucking-Harima
+ Extremely funny situations, even funnier characters
- Many interludes and subplots are boring

Sgt. Frog
+ Funny dubs
+ Tons of episodes
+ Huge nostalgia for anyone who read the manga
- Breaks the fourth wall a bit too much
- Geared toward kids a little too much for my liking

Haganai
+ Every characters is extremely interesting
+ Dialogue and character interactions are funny
+ Some awesome references
+ Great balance of humor and drama
- The male to female ratio is a bit cliche
- First episode is a little slow
- Some plot devices are reused

Black Cat is about a bunch of bounty hunters pandering to a annoying little girl because she would kill them if they don't give her what she wants (few years later she winds up in Toloveru). Tenga Toppa Gurren Lagann was about an orphan kid and his older brother figure who talks about random things while hanging out with a freakishly developed 14 year old girl who talks about anime, yeah, Yoko is a massive otaku. Nichijou was a poor attempt to mix Azumanga Daioh, Lucky Star, and a music video of Billy Joel's song "Allentown" together.

Meh

didn't make some of the characters any less annoying.

Bullshit.

More like cheap sex appeal every five seconds.

- Male to female character ratio is cliche

The whole damn series is cliche.

- Dialogue is occasionally cheesy

Is it.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Is eMOE shit guaranteed!

Then there's Monster, City Hunter, Hokuto no Ken, Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Great Teacher Onizuka, Saint Seiya (thought it was plagued with crap load of fillers), DB series in general except for GT, YYH, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Cowboy Bebop, and Trigun.

Trigun needs to be remade, I mean the only reason why it ended that way was because the manga wasn't finshed that time.

That was the only thing the anime really had going for it. And yes, it did that pretty well.

+ Excellent English dub

"Sarah-fuckin'-Palin"

Not even close.

+ Likable characters

Cliche

+ Realistically talks about the social and political impact of a zombie apocalypse

"realistically"
"zombie apocalypse"

I personally thought the moral lessons and stuff came across very forced as well. They might as well be saying "We're going to give the viewers an unsubtle life lesson now!" in some parts.

+ Deliciously evil antagonists

Go play Dead Rising.

- Too much fanservice

It was one panty shot away from a hentai.

- Male to female character ratio is cliche

It was almost a harem, there were literally only two guys in the whole main cast. Takeshi almost got as many "action" scenes as he did actual action scenes.

- Dialogue is occasionally cheesy

Frequently, especially in their butchered attempt to cater to the Western crowd in the English dub.

"Sarah-fuckin'-Palin"

Gonna have to disagree with you here. Okay anime if you just want straight-up action, wasn't great though.

Go play Dead Rising.

Looks like you just nailed 90% of all animes, Kudos to you.
But what about the "Guy lost his memory and now has to Fall in love with the cute girl he found while he discovers himself so he can save the world"?

You have Afro Samurai as your userpic and you didn't think to recommend it?

Anyway, I'm gonna throw xxx-Holic in as my suggestion. The protagonist is a bit annoying sometimes, but it's well done overall.

Ao No Exorcist (Just watch it d00d.)
Bakemonogatari (Harem with lolis, lesbians and shy girls without being eechi and what not.) /Nisemonogatari (FUCKLOADS OF INCESTUAL SUGESTIVE MATERIAL. Seriously, in one scene the guy brushes her sister teeth in an erotic manner, of course, hilarity ensures.)
Full Metal Alchemist (Mainstream suggestion)
Afro Samurai (A black version of samurai Jack with a stereotyped black person cut shit.)
Zetsubou Sayonara Sensei (Good fo' shitz and giggles.)
Along with that list, I give you this image. That way you can easily say yes, no.

If he hasent seen Afro Samurai then he shouldn't even be in existence lol
But i guess i just assumed he'd had watched it, its kinda hard to know about anime if you have seen that and Samurai champloo.

Oh man I loved that show. I never saw it past the tournament season though, the one with the huge guy and the sunglasses.

Me as well. I would download it, but it would be too tedious, plus my internet is the best to begin with. But it was a great animu.
