    Most of the big ones have been mentioned.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spirit_of_Wonder
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wings_of_Honneamise
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gunbuster


    If you want to go way back when they first made OAVs try Iczer 01 - http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/ency...ime.php?id=684 .. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fight!_Iczer_One it's a landmark because this was the first one made.

    Speed Anime that will make you laugh: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon_Half - makes fun of the RPG genre pretty well back in its time.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cromartie_High_School although I've seen the whole set of eps being played on youtube this is worth a purchase.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Boy_(manga) OAV series, great comedy.

    These have been recommended already, but I'd like to reiterate them.

    Akira
    Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust

    Akira is actually one of the most amazing films I've ever seen, animated or not.

    Whoah! been looking at some trailers and clips of some of these recommendations ( thank you kind dwellers of CA), can honestly say i am going to be poor from here on from buyin them all.

    The animation is so good to look at and work out, real simple effects but used well giving off a much greater "detail", lighting in some of these scenes has so much depth and then u pause it and see its a simple effect just used really well! pretty cool shit!

    oooo another Guyver <--------that suit is the shit



    Looking for work experience - let me show you what I can do

    Karas is pretty goddamn cool looking. Worth seeing parts of at least.

    Also yes, anything Satoshi Kon is gold, and Tekkonkinkreet and FLCL are fantastic.

    It's been said, but Gurren Lagann is pretty great. It lies in the "brains off, balls out fun" category, but it does so with so much energy you can't help getting dragged along.

    I think the best ones have been named already. Now you've got enough metarial to watch for the next few months...

    I could maybe add "The girl who leapt through time" and the "Arjuna" series, which is way to green for me, but some of the rotoscoped animation looks really awesome...


    Oh, and be sure to watch FLCL!

    many good recommendations here- I'll add

    appleseed- the original, the remake isn't bad though

    ----and maybe just for some old school fun

    new dominion tank police

    bubblegum crisis

    also for those berzerk fans who still have a PS2 there was a game called Sword of the Berzerk which was based(loosely) on the series. I recommend playing through at east once.

    edit: oh crap I think it was just for dreamcast! damn.

    There are 2 Beserk games. One was for Dreamcast, the other was for PS2.

    The Dreamcast one picks up where Guts has just rescued Caska (I know her name is with a C in certain translations, I just think a "K" is sexier) and is taking him with her on his journeys.

    The PS2 one covers the Guts' "scoobies" arc. Basically where you see him form a new group. This one as far as I know is only for Japan release. http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...rserk+ps2&aq=f "Berserk PS2"

    http://www.art-of-war.co.jp/english/...list.php?gid=1

    Can find more info on Berserk on http://www.skullknight.net/final.html

    Also in the anime the Berserk Outtakes are like...the best ever for anime bloopers.

    Anyone mentioned Barefoot Gen yet?

    Also whilst I'm at it does anyone find Naruto,... an okay show? I liked it till episode 1030, and then it just lost the plot. (Even if it explained it to me in painful detail, at every corner.)

    I generally lost interest in anime series that are over 2 seasons (basically 50 or more episodes). That's also why I stuck with OAVs or movies for longer. I only liked Ranma 1/2 for 2 seasons barely enjoyed Sailor Moon, I only like Dragonball and hated Z (because I liked the adventure aspect). Z became "drag...ooooooon ball" it was ridiculous to see something like 20 episodes of a character charging up to do a big attack. They did that with the first Street Fighter anime tv series too.

    Other good series:
    Haibane Renmei http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haibane_Renmei -I'd also say it's one of the safest anime to watch without having to explain "anime-isms" or stuff that might be inappropriate to a person that doesn't watch much anime.

    I recommend Elfen Lied, especially since you most likely won't be put off by the gore.

    My knowledge of scientific biological transmogrifications is only outmatched by my zest for Kung-Fu treachery.

    - Baccano (had to 2nd this)
    - Trigun
    - Full metal alchemist
    - NHK ni Youkoso (I 2nd this one too!)

    Ranma 1/2 makes me feel sick how sexist that series was. Personally I think Takahashi is completely overrated, 2D characters, little plot development, along with artwork that varies in quality... (Though this is getting onto her Manga work, rather than the anime adaptations which look incredibly dated today.)

    Hahahaha I was at this murder mystery dinner thing, and apparently the guy playing the detective did the voice for Void in Berserk. Hilarious.

    Oooh and I don't know if it was mentioned but Kakurenbo (Hide and Seek) is pretty hardcore. The best part though is the downward scrolling intro sequence.

    Seconds Texhnolyze (I believe someone mentioned it earlier). It's a slow, cerebral anime at the beginning but once it picks up, things just get crazier. If you're into Lain, this will be right up your alley. It also has one of the best endings I've ever seen.

    Mushishi is a must. So is Haibane Renmei. Check out Sky Crawlers, too if you're into dogfighting anime along with Yukikaze.

    I just finished watching all of Cowboy Bebop the other day. It was very good. The setting along with the music is just perfect. It couldn't of been done better!

    Now, some anime I would recommend:

    Cowboy Bebop
    Samurai Champloo
    Animatrix (the varying art styles made for a cool effect. I also liked how they made the movie about multiple people's story with the Matrix)
    Princess Mononoke (great creativity)
    Howl's Movie Castle (great creativity)
    Castle in the Sky (it's been a lot time since I've seen this one.)

    I have yet to see Outlaw Star. A friend of mine says it's really good and could be compared to Cowboy Bebop.

    I also have yet to see:
    Spirited Away (all the way through)
    Grave of the Fireflies
    Ghost in the Shell (movie)
    Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' on Heaven's Door

    I'm also thinking of a movie I saw 4 years back. I have no idea what it's name was but the story's protagonist was able to manipulate paper as a weapon... I don't know if that helps at all.

    Edit: It appears a rumor is going around that a live action Cowboy Bebop is in the making. I don't know if it is true, but if it is I'm excited for it!

    Also by the same artist, Makoto Shinkai, I would recommend are:
    - 5 Centimeters Per Second
    - The Place Promised in Our Early Days

    The art is just stunning.
