Need New Anime
I just need some new stuff to watch. I have a wide range of tastes, and will try most things at least once. Here's a list of some of my favorites (In no particular order):
1) Full Metal Panic! (And Fumoffu)
2) Cowboy Bebop
3) I My Me! Strawberry Eggs
5) Gunslinger Girl
Stuff I don't like:
1) Excel Saga. Can't stand it.
2) Dragonball and its various incarnations.
And I'm currently downloading:
2) Full Metal Alchemist
because I saw a few clips of each and thought it would be great. Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

a few good ones on animesuki
Da Capo : Basically a highschool romance story about one boy and the women around him who all have something going for him. One day, Junichi's cousin and childhood friend, Sakura Yoshino came back from America all of a sudden. To Junichi's surprise, she looks exactly the same as the girl that moved away six years ago, and hasn't aged one bit. And she came back to remind Junichi of their childhood promise... It is a bittersweet tale of magic, love, hidden desires, and unattainable dreams. First half is rather light, second part is very tragic and dramatic and something you can't stop watching ...
Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien : A love story (very dramatic and at times depressing) about a triangle relationship between a boy and 2 girls. Takayuki is together with Mitsuki and just when their relationship starts to grow, tragedy strikes, what follows is a very tragic story of a guy being torn between 2 women and the suffering this brings upon those women and his environment. It was considered as one of the best anime of 2003 and I completely agree with that.
