Just read a manga called Mozuya-san Gyakujousuru. Interesting take on the old tsundere formula.

That list is probably the tame stuff. I liked death note but couldn't really get into it.. just anything that "pushes the barrier" Don't know anything about japanese society makes it kinda cool to watch anime with sweet action scenes but at the same time also with a cool plot/mind-**** device to keep you interested in the show.

neon genesis evangelion and samurai champloo are probably my favorite. Neon genesis had a cool plot, samurai champloo had epic fight scenes that were really well done.

Psycho Pass, Parasyte, or Katanagatari

TTGL or serial experiments lain. I'd second Katanagatari as well.

thanks I'll actually go look some of that stuff up, looking back some of the 90s and early 00s anime was really well done... love the political aspect in neo genesis evangelion as well that I hadn't even realized until I started watching the movie today. (didn't know there was one at the time just the shows)

If your into the political part, Legend of the Galactic Heroes is one of the best in that regard. Older show with quite a few episodes but one of my all time favourites. Also bakabt and nyaa are good sources for torrents

Samurai X Trust and Betrayal = best anime movie.

Hiko Sajuro = Bad @$$

Bandit: "Who are you?!"

Hiko Sajuro: "You won't be alive long enough to remember my name."

Loved Welcome to the NHK. Supposedly Misaki's character is a lot more twisted in the manga, really should get around to checking it out sometime.

I read the thread from time to time to get recommendations. It's how I decided to give Psycho-Pass a whirl.
