I had my other thread that was meant to talk about Arakawa Under The Bridge, but I feel that using that thread for the purpose of finding new anime to watch is a little deceptive. Anyone recommend some anime they find as "great"? I like pretty much anything, that isn't yaoi -.-, so no need to ask for my specific tastes! Just post your favorite animes and as long as they aren't in my long watched list, I'll be sure to check them out!

You could always check out the new Dragonball Z Kai show that started airing on Nick Toons this week. Even if you've seen it, there's always time for DBZ :)

Fate / Staynight - Tsukihime - Kara No Kyoukai (Type-moon trilogy)
Nasu Kinoko has created a world spanning through several sagas, not directly connecting to each other, but are indeed attached. The shows get more mature as you pass from left to right. Magi, ancient warriors/ vampires, magi/ magi, ghosts.

Spice and Wolf
Economics and a wolf-girl need I say more.

Bakemonogatari
From the demented mind of Nisioisin comes a series shown by several arcs a story about a past-vampire and his dealing with the strange people he meets. Much philosophy ensues.

I just started watching Yozakura Quartet recently so I can't give too much of a synopsis or whathaveyou, but from what I can tell, if you like slice of life/supernatural junk, it should be interesting. :3

The most romantic work of them all would be Fujishima's 25 year old masterpiece, Ah! My Goddess. The TV show that aired between 2004-2006 was a fairly good adaption, only changing some cosmetic things, shortening it so that 26 volumes of manga could fit into 52 episodes (and a 3 part OVA). If you're not aware of the plot, it begins when a down on his luck college student accidentally calls heaven and is sent a Goddess who fills his one true wish. "I want a Goddess like you to stay by my side forever."

Thus begins the relationship of Keiichi, the kind hearted college student, and the woman who will ruin women for you, Belldandy.

I defy you to watch it without your heart melting even a little bit.

My bad $495.99 there are 50 DVDs not counting the movies. Netflix has all but 1 DVD so that is a more cost effective route.

As someone who loves Kare Kano to bits and pieces, I just have this to say about the anime:

DON"T DO IT!!!!!

Read the manga instead. Your sanity will thank you for it... Once you read it, if you really want to, go watch the anime; it starts out really good, but the last, like, 4 or five episodes are terrible. ;.;

Then again, I say that about most anime, these days...v.v;;;

Unfortunately, because the anime adaptations of so many romance comedy manga fail so epically hard, I can't really give you many anime recommendations for that genre...if you're looking for a good manga read, however...

I agree with Kaay....Read the manga. It is muuuch better.

Same with Fruits Basket.

At least the Fruits Basket anime had a satisfying ending....

But the voices in both the English and Japanese versions annoy the heck out of me, so there's really no winning. >.<

Honestly, there are some anime, like Fruba, where I'll tell someone to read the manga, but the anime isn't terrible. Then there's anime like Kare Kano and Loveless, where they just completely screw up and there's no redeeming it (the plot in Loveless doesn't really pick up until volume 5, and the anime stops on volume 4). If you ran into me at ACen, you heard my rant about how they screwed up Black Cat...*fumefume* *Demands a remake where they actually follow the mother-loving timeline*

Slayers/Slayers NEXT/Slayers Try/Slayers Revolution/Slayers OVA/Slayers Movie
Fantasy and slapstick old school style, featuring an awesome cast no matter which language you pick. This is my #1 favorite and is the series that got me into anime.

If looking for a good romance anime I can recommend the following:

Crescent Love
To Heart
Lamune
Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora

Comedy:

Puni Puni Poemy: This is a two episode OVA that will leave you no longer the same person before you watched it
Kodocha

and for the rest of them...

Blue Seed, Record of Lodoss War, 3x3 Eyes, Geobreeders, Clannad, Kanon (2006), Air, Phantom of the Inferno...
The Oni of Taiyaki

I really like Marmalade Boy!

This is not a romantic comedy, though there is some of it in there, Sgt. Frog.

Giroro is hilarious when his fellow platoon members tease him about liking Natsumi. lol See episode: "TV's Shooters and Practical Jokes". It's really really funny.

I like Ranma 1/2 as an anime, but the manga is better to me. I also enjoyed Fruits Basket, Love Hina, Aishiteruze Baby(sorry if that's not right),and Chobits. I'm also about to start watching Ai Yori Aoshi.
