What's the one reccomendation you would give?

Hello, i'm looking for really good anime to watch since i happen to be having a good semester so far(even though it just started it seems easy going) so i can go back to watching lots of anime. I don't want to go back to watching everything nonsenselessy, i want to be able to fully enjoy the anime.

If you had to reccomend one anime to someone what would it be and why? I enjoy all types but prefer to stay away from the superb amount of fan service.

If you want to check what i have seen so far feel free to check my animelist:

Thanks in advance! Also unsure what anime are airing currently so is there any that look good so far?

I'd recommend Juuni Kokuki, which is on your plan to watch list... it's just a great fantasy story. It has a heroine that starts out weak and actually grows; it has two other girls that are extremely flawed that find their own path to growth before they all finally meat each other. It takes place in a fleshed out world full of history and character. There are some of my favorite type of plot elements--for example, where the protagonist is powerful/famous, yet she's working incognito... which facilitates those delicious "reveal" moments.. Finally, it's pretty much the only quality "classic" fantasy adventure story to be found in anime, imho...

Just one title? Hmm..that's hard, but if you really want a title with great story, decent action and interesting characters, look no further than Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. FMA: Brotherhood is a remake of Fullmetal Alchemist. The goal of this remake is to be more faithful to the manga's story in terms of adaptation. This doesn't mean that the first series is bad. The story is just bleaker than the remake. So, you're free to choose between FMA & FMA: Brotherhood.

As for the currently airing show, you should check out Zetsuen no Tempest, a fantasy-action-mystery anime with well-written story too. I don't want to tell you much about the story since the strong point of this anime is how the mystery reveal itself. Don't read any spoilers before you watch this anime. IMO it's one of the best series in 2012 which still airing today.

There's no significant fanservice between the two series.

I'd probably recommend Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Cross Game - A Story of Love, Life, Death - and Baseball. What more could you want?

The best anime in my library are 5 Centimetres per second and Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn: I was going to recommend CLANNAD, CLANNAD: After Story and Kanon, but you've already finished them In particular, Gundam Unicorn should convey the epicness of Gundam that AGE might have not (and I do apologise to AGE fans, but it isn't exactly the best Gundam series for everyone)

Was about to suggest Kokoro Connect going that you liked all Key works and AnoHana, but you already have it in your watching list.

Really hard to suggest anything here... I personally am into dark/mystery genres which don't seem to be your type of series.

If I am to suggest something light, engaging and emotional it would be Chihayafuru with it's beautiful art and energetic characters as well as simple but engaging story that won't leave you unemotional.

Anime focuses on a Japanese card game Karuta. The game on its own sounds boring but anime was able to show so many sides to it that it is hard to stay oblivious.

Monster. Go watch it now.

If that doesn't work for you, give Cross Game a try.

From the types of shows and pacings you seemed to lean to:

Aria the Animation. Has the kind of visuals, ambience and characters I think you would be into.

Just one title heh, ok I'll go for Noir.
Good action, interesting characters, mysterious plot and no fan-service.
