Need help in finding some nice Anime for the winter break

I've started watching Anime for ca 2 months ago, I haven't been able to watch alot since there is alot going on in school at the moment but I'm planning on watching more over the winter break. The thing is that I don't know alot about which series that are good (After watching the 'How many Episodes Topic' it seems to be alot of them). Also I'm limited by my finances, I'm planning on order some from the Internet since we don't have any store were I live that sells Anime.

I've watched:

Serial Experiments Lain (it was abit hard to understand now and then but it became more clear at the end - an intresting anime).

Hellsing (I really liked the begining and the 'mode' in it - thought the end was a bit dissapointing, everything up to that was great thought).

Rurouni Kenshin (I still haven't finished it, but I really like the story so far).

Akira, Spirited Away and Monoke Hime as well.

I think I'm looking for an, well, something different, how to put it. if there 'classic' that you know about I would love to hear about it, or maybe just an good serie that you have watched.

I'd prefer if it's Japanese (spelling?) speach with English subtitles, I don't know why but I like it that way more than having it dubbed in English.

Please do give some tips if you got any!

All help is highly appreciated!

(PS: My main-language is not English so sorry if there is alot of spelling errors and such).

Torrent is your friend in getting your hands on stuff If i understand correctly you are pretty much open for anything, right?

As for the series... with the mention of "winter" the first thing that came to mind was Kanon - currently airing (10 of 24 eps aired)... Sad girls in snow... Drama/fantasy with bits of romance. Beautiful story with marvelous animation. Torrents available right here on animesuki main page.

Air - Beautiful and sad story made by the same company making Kanon - so the animation quality is also at its highest. Opposite to Kanon this one is set in summer. Having a box of tissues in the nearest vicinity is highly recomended.

Death Note - i think you will definitely like this one. Currently airing. Watching the intelectual battle between the two masterminds here is something truly worthwhile.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - horror/mystery. No1 anime in my biased book Amazing plot and very interesting characters.

Gift ~Eternal Rainbow~ - currently ongoing, 10 of 12 eps aired. So far looks like on of the better romance/drama series out there.

A list of random series that i enjoyed the most myself:

Elfen Lied (large amounts of gore)
Scrapped Princess
Fullmetal Alchemist
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
Shakugan no Shana
Rozen Maiden and Rozen Maiden: Traumend
Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase (WTF face guaranteed after watching the OP )
Lamune (do not touch if you don't like slice-of-life type series. Otherwise jup right in. Truly heart-warming series)
Canvas 2

^ all of the above listed are among my favorites. Cheers.

Thanks for the posts, I looked through the links and all of the titles seems intresting. Even better is that they are really different from the stuff I've watched so far (it's always fun to watch new and different stuff!). I quess I got to check that torrent thingy out as well.

Hehe, I can't wait untill the winter break starts, it's gonna be great!

Neon Genesis Evangelion, if you can handle 95 animation. The plot is amazing, and has been at the top of my list for a long while, deeply psychological

Elfen Lied is astounding. The story may not be too original, but the blend of a lot of genres really makes it its own thing. However, lots of gore, and moderate nudity. As said by many people, if you can't handle the first half of ep 1, you shouldn't watch it.

For something lighthearted, i personally enjoyed school rumble. 2 seasons, 2 ovas, and a third season coming out, should give you a nice laugh over the break.

Mmm, I will take an look at those as well. Curious, what does '95 animation' stand for? Never heard about it before. If it means that it was lauched in 1995 do I have nothing against it - alot of older movies tend to be good as well. Thanks for the replies

Well, I haven't really watched alot of anime yet. So far have I only watched those mentioned above - I really liked all of them. Hm, I quess I would like to try to find the classics of some of the different genres. I would like to find which one of the genres I like best by trying out some of the 'classics', it could be any kind of anime really, I'm open for all suggestions (can't get to funny, romantic or violent). "You cannot know if you like/dislike something before you have tried it" (watched it), something like that.

So, if you know an anime (could be any!) that you really like, feel free to write the name of it here. It's really nice when you can get peoples own oppinions on the things (in this case anime) they like, I belive it makes it easier to find those treasures that you otherwise would have missed.
