What do you want to want? Genre? Fantasy, comedy, romance, action, thriller, etc?

Regardless of what you say I'm still going to tell you to watch cowboy bebop though.

I've already watched Golden Boy and FLCL, loved them both. Thanks for the other suggestions.

I've been kinda slow with my anime. I can't seem to find any good series on Neflix and the ones I usually watch are all series so those can take a while.

Any suggestions?

Any suggestions of Anime that are just as funny/sad like Angel Beats! or Rosario + Vampire? (Considering R+V is just fanservice, it's got an alright plot.)

High School of the Dead (MAJOR NSFW FANSERVICE)
Clannad ~After Story~ (Will make you cry.)

Baccano, I guess. It's on Netflix.

Since it's that time of year, anyone have any horror recommendations?

I can't think of much in the way of actual straight up horror as far as anime goes, but I can recommend some anime that's fitting for Halloween.

There is one horror that I strongly recommend, though, and that's Hundred Stories. It's fantastic and has a great, unique art style. Also, the first story arc of Ayakashi: Japanese Classic Horror is definitely a good horror story. I don't think the other two arcs really count as horror, though, but they're pretty good. The last one became its own series called Mononoke.

Anyway, here are some horror and/or "Halloweeny" type animes.

Hellsing Ultimate
Vampire Hunter D
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
Blood: the Last Vampire
Paranoia Agent
Hell Girl (only saw one episode, but it seems quite good)

Hey guys, I've watched some entry-level anime, Deathnote, FMA(+Brotherhood), Cowboy Bebop, Naruto(+shippuden), DBZ, Elfen Lied, Code Geass, FMP, Samurai Champloo, Afro Samurai, Bleach, One Piece and maybe a few others I can't remember

I'm looking for something a little more serious now, any suggestions?

More serious huh? Monster's pretty good, give that a go. A thriller about a doctor who choses to save the life of a child instead of the mayor, and... well, just watch it.

Planetes is a pretty great hard (realistic) sci-fi/slice of life about people clearing up space junk in low-earth orbit in the near future, gets pretty awesome and keeps it realistic in regards to how they live up there (ie momentum, gravity etc etc).

Uhh, what else. Perfect Blue is just a movie but it's a fantastic psychological thriller. Think Black Swan but thirteen years earlier.

If you're up for something long, Legend of the Galactic Heroes is a grand space opera depicting a war between the empire + rebels from both sides, it's hard to get over just how glorious it is but just fucking watch it.

Gunbuster is one of my favourite OVAs, it's gainax (evangelion, flcl, gurren lagann)'s first anime afaik, absolutely superb. 6 long episodes.

In fact since you've listed none of those, watch Neon Genesis Envagelion (psychological mecha), FLCL (slice of life comedy action thing), and gurren lagann (comedy/mecha).

If you want something a bit slower and more chilled, watch Mushishi, it's a laid back anime about a spiritual doctor. Great shit right there.

That'll do for the moment.

Oh yeah monster, started that, seemed really promising until about ep 30 I think when they started the whole orphanage backstory stuff, it really lost steam for me then, does it pick up much after that or does it just decline ala death note?

I've only read the manga, though I hear it's pretty similar to the anime. (Unrelatedly check out the manga 20th century boys by the same author, it's excellent.) In the manga it still performed well after that backstory, the last volume or two were a bit odd perhaps, but it ended very strongly. I'd definitely recommend giving it another shot if you have the time

Any of you guys seen this yet? I remember hearing about a Kenshin film a while ago but it's nice to see some footage.

Finally got a replacement charger for my laptop so I can watch anime from my HDD.

Fuck have I been living under a rock. It came out two months ago in summer (well, winter for the Japanese) but I really hope it gets a US/international release. The staff themselves said they'd like to release it internationally but there hasn't been much more news besides that; nonetheless, I'm hopeful. I'd definitely pay to see it in theaters because it looks great.

So I've been watching Dragon Ball Kai lately (because Dragonball Z is nostalgic for me) and I got to thinking about some of the lessons the Dragonball series teaches, such as "hard work pays off, but people with natural sill are going to have a head start." Granted this is a show aimed at younger boys, so it's fairly obvious about this, but I thought maybe we could get a discussion going about the morality and ethics of various anime. At the very least it's a break from the tedium of "I watched (insert anime here) what else should I watch?"

I usually take shit at face value when it comes to anime, but some anime I've watched have multiple 'layers' that I can notice.

Most of the Gundam series I've seen (both Seed series, 00, G) are usually black-and-white with no in-betweens. There are bad guys and good guys, that's it. Durandal and Master Asia were the most interesting of the bunch and not just batshit crazy like Rau or the Trinity siblings.

LoGH is the best in this regard because it's not just that -- the characters actually seem 'real.'
