Any recommendations for good anime?
I left the anime scene about 2 yrs ago, recently discovered bittorrent but I'm overwhelmed with so many new series out there! Can someone recommend a few good series for me to start out with? I downloaded a few but was quite disappointed so far. e.g. Kanon, St. Luminous Mission High School, Cinderella Boy seemed to be much inferior to the older animes.

These are some of my old favourites:

1. Cowboy Bebop
2. Vision of Escaflowne
3. Kenshin (esp the OVAs)
4. Noir
5. Kimagure Orange Road (loved the movies)
6. Trigun
7. Hellsing
8. Jubei Ninja girl (?) Can't remember the exact title

Currently watching Gunslinger Girl and Full Metal Alchemist. Gunslinger girl is stylish and dark, but doesn't have strong characters (IMHO). I almost gave up on FMA until ep 7 changed my mind. Still don't really like the juvenile humor though.

i would recommend

gungrave (licensed)
Shingetsutan Tsukihime (13/13) - dark anime with vamps, non-humans
Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien (13/15) - Romance, but be ready to get yourself blown away
PlanetES (9/??) - Story about department in a space company in charged of collecting space junks
Twin Spica (6/??) - Story about little girls journey to become an astronaut in Japanese space academy
Hundred stories - weird story like boogiepop phantom, something like ghost stories in ancient jap.
Peacemaker kurogane 13/26? - samurai stuff set in shinsengumi age - just like kenshin, but so far hasnt picked up pace yet
basically all these are new animes of october/november 2003

and join the rest to watch the popular naruto, hunter x hunter, one piece. (chrno crusade is interesting too)

There is a forum here especially for suggestions, and there are several threads about which new anime are recommended based on different tastes. :)
