I adore just about everything Ghost in the Shell.  The films are superb and the SAC series were great too.  Arise wasn't quite as good though.
Cowboy Bebop is great as well.
Space Pirate Captain Harlock is a really solid movie.
Akira is a classic of course.

I really wanted to love Trigun and Full Metal Alchemist but they were just too campy for me.

EDIT: Appleseed is another good series of films.

I couldn't get into Full metal alchemist either.....it was the bad jokes. They got in the way of the story.(this is my opinion anyway.) I guess i can see why some like it though.

Yep, I guess Japanese comic relief doesn't translate particularly well.

Honestly, it was the constant flailing around and yelling that got to me....Yeah, i guess it doesn't translate well.

Yes that is precisely the sort of thing that annoys me.  Cowboy Bebop has a bit of that but it's applied sparingly.  The rest of the story more than makes up for it.

I never got into cowboy bepop, but I think it may be because i tried watching it after all the hype died down and I was kind of disappointed (I can see why people love it though) Funny, because there are a lot of anime who use that kind of humor, but for some reason with Full Metal Alchemist I noticed it more...

The voiceovers may make a huge difference. The few glimpses I've seen of English versions have to me sounded so overblown and unnatural that I've immediately either changed the channel or turned whatever machine I used off. The French versions, however, have been so true to the originals that I've found it uncanny. (I don't understand French, but the tone and feeling were there.)

There are nuances in Japanese that are easy to lose unless both the translator and voice actors are absolutely top notch. I believe the same is true of every language...

Although I love all of the older stuff, I have noticed that the english dubs have been getting better and better lately. Are they putting more money into it than they used to? As much as I love some of the older shows, some of the anime that i used to like had god awful english voiceovers

Mine are mostly main stream, but they are still fantastic!

1.) Fairy Tail (far and away my fav)
2.) My Hero Academia
3.) Dragonball Z
4.) Naruto (original and Shippuden, Boruto is kinda meh)
5.) Sword Art Online
6.) Assassination Classroom
7.) Attack on Titan
8.) Izetta the Last Witch
9.) Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid
10.) Seven Deadly Sins
11.) Black Clover (starting to like it now that I have gotten over Asta yelling all the time)
12.) Overlord
13.) Zoids (haven't seen it in forever though, might suck now  :P)

Semi-Anime Honorable Mentions (for the feels):
1) Pokemon (mostly the older series)
2) Digimon
3) Yu-Gi-Oh

Can't stress how influential Fairy Tail was in helping me through some dark times, planning on getting a tattoo for it eventually.  Plus the soundtrack is amazing.  :laugh:
