Hit my scrotum with a hammer and I'll consider it.

Or just stop after Cell, just like the series should have.

You shouldn't. But if you do, watch Samurai Champloo or Cowboy Bebop.

I should point out I've been recommender Welcome to NKC or something and may watch it in the near future. Apparently it sums up my life quite well and from what Youtube clips I've seen it looks pretty good. As I said before. I like to stay well tuned into reality as possible and I find fantasy boring anyway so most anime doesn't appeal to me unless I get scrot pics.

If you want to try, go for the (relatively) popular shounen anime. Then, if you liked what you saw, you may want to move on to deeper, more meaningful stories.

Though if you want to watch 'The big 3', it would take around a year, if you don't marathon everything.

Oh, and Full Metal Alchemist and Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood are pretty much the best gateway anime around. You might wanna start with them.

If given a chance, I'd tie you up, take out a rusty knife and cut you all over and douse you with a peroxide.

I watched all of DBZ years back.

I enjoyed it at the time, but I'd rather stick my head in the toilet than go through it again.

That's obvious. The series should have ended at Dragonball Z. After that it was just powerlevels and nonsense.

It was going to end after the fight with Frieza only to kept going due to popular demand. Goku was going to die when Namek exploded, so much for that.

Then again, Toriyama was going to finish the series after Dragonball, makes you wonder how many times the series was going to end at first.

I'm not here to get noticed so don't worry bout it. If I saw you in real life I probably wouldn't pay attention to you either.

Good for you, I wouldn't have paid much attention in IRL since we don't even know each other anyway.

so you can pretend your bonding with the japaneese. Seriously though get into it if you're interested personally I can't find myself caring about any anime outside of DBZ and Yu Yu hakusho cause all the others have terribly boring story-lines.

Even DBZ is boring. I cannot pay attention to any animes besides Dragonball, Cowboy Bebop (for the music), and Death Note (for the premise, but I couldn't even finish it)

It's not about the style, it's about each individual show. Like any other style, some are good, and some aren't.
