    I like romance, magical girls, badassery, but not really a fan of super gory violence unless the storyline and art are really really good.

    Fate/Stay Night is a really nice one, as well.

    I've seen Cardcaptor Sakura and I own the manga. The anime is good and still good today. The manga is better.

Although there are some good ones but I can't remember them off the top of my head. You can always search for genre on http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/ or on http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=main .

    Edit: Ah Berserk is good but that is gory but very good story.
    I saw the first ep of SAO a long time ago and it has art that is exactly what I don't like and the story is lackluster and annoying to me. Didn't watch anymore after that.

    I've seen Cowboy Bebop and I saw some of Ah! My Goddess.

    I've known about Berserk for years but never watched it. I watched the first two eps last night. Seems boring so far, but the art is great. I'll continue it and see where it takes me.

    I've heard of Full Metal Panic! but I've never watched it. It may be a future consideration.

    No Life No Game looks incredibly dumb. Probably won't be a consideration.

    Buuuut.

    Eden of the East
    Attack on Titan
    .Hack series (the first one, the others kinda follow the retarded chibii formula)
    BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad (one of my all-time favorites)
    Summer Wars (Awesome feature film)
    Any Ghibli film, especially Princess Mononoke.
    Heroic Age (actually, I think I might re-watch this soon now that I think about it)
    Break Blade (Magic, Giant robots, romance, kingdoms at war, basically everything a good anime needs)

    Off the top of my head.

    Eh, No Life No Game isn't all that mature and it's a comedy, so there's a lot of chibi, harem, ecchi crap. Ah! My Goddess is also a harem/comedy, so not very serious (tho it's kinda like Tenchi Muyo in that it's a comedy/harem but still has a decent semi-serious backstory that keeps it interesting and going).
    Oopsies!

    Eden of the East - Maybe.
    Attack on Titan - First ep is funny, but I liked it. I think my friend wanted me to watch it with him.
    .Hack - The odd episodes I saw on TV seemed boring. I dunno if I'll delve into that.
    BECK - No.
    Summer Wars - Has a bit of the art style I don't like. Maybe.
    Ghibli - I think I've seen just about every Ghibli film, or at least the ones that are the most popular. Princess Mononoke is my favorite.
    Heroic Age - Looks interesting; maybe.
    Break Blade - Started this one last night. It's okay so far. I will continue to watch.

    I liked/like Tenchi series except for Tokyo. That shit was whack.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think I could sit through a child's show. I'd rather just collect. OuO

    You know I've seen Princess Mononoke...

    Didn't we watch an ep or two of Stein's Gate together? No.

    I was thinking of Fate/Stay Night. I always liked how it looked.

    I don't know any new Gundam series.

    as the authority on good animu here at onrpg, I have compiled you a list of animu that you should probably watch instead of sailor swoon.

    akira, berserk, gantz, ghost in the shell, ergo proxy, lain, cowboy bebop, neo tokyo...

    that's about it. enjoy not watching them.
