    Blue Submarine no.6 is crazy... awesome animation, insane details etc.

    I don't have a clue why nobody mentioned the series around the Gundam universe. Ok, the story is nuttin' but the Mecha-Design rules.

    Already said, the animations/books by Masamune Shirow are a must-see.

    Cowboy Bebop has the coolest intro ever. period.

    Nothing comes even close in terms of color, soundtrack, and pure style.
    I think they made only one season. Killing the main guy, kinda put a damper on things. still he could be alive.

    I agree to R_M Cowboy bebop is my all around favourite anime... cņz? yeah coz of the stuff you don't usually see in kiddy anime cough*POKEMON*caugh <- Worst anime ever!

    Anywhoo I've seen alot of animes atleast 30 and then series etc, long list but lets just mention the maddast ones, here it comes the holy list with a lil synposis... more or less...

    Cowboy Bebop, bounty hunter action, mecha and the best all around and unique style in the history of anime, by the words of Cowboy Bebop 'The work, which becomes a new genre itself, will be called... "COWBOY BEBOP"' - Also seen movie aswell (tight ass) - A MUST SEE -

    A Kite, the most violent and action packing anime I've seen so far (haven't seen Akira I guess). Also asassins with a twisting story and tragedic end... (this is anime LOL)

    Hellsing, hardcore hell action with vampires, zombies, hellhounds, the full package... awesome action..

    Street Fighter Alpha, awesome story, and animation and movements to drool 4.

    The Vision of Escaflowne, the human animations are so-so, mecha designs are superb also the best adventure anime so far...

    List of new Animes
    s.CRY.ed
    Hellsing
    rahXephon
    Vandread
    Full Metal Panic
    Onegai Teacher
    Animatrix
    Wonderful Days (quite new) www.wonderfuldays.co.kr
    and so on.... visit www.point-blank.cc
    the only anime site that really is worth reading I guess..

    An artist cannot fail, it is a success to be one.
