NOTE~Mods could lock this if i can possibly get some good suggestions

Well its a request i have to those whose seen lots of different anime.
Im trying to look for a anime that people hasnt seen much is very good.

Ive overall seem tons of anime, so dont really care for those very new ones since im watching many, so any from last year and before. (Not too old though please)

Some genre im looking for.... (DOESNT matter if licensed or unlicensed since i could get it elsewhere)
-Action/Adventure (looking most for adventure anime) (Erementar Gerad/Last Exile/ El Hazard)
-Romance (Chobits/Zero no Tsukaima/Ichigo 100%)
-Mecha (Zegapain/Gundam/Kenran Butoh Sai)
-Fantasy (A genre im really looking for) (Kyou Kara Maou/Zero no Tsukaima/Haibane Renmei)
-Space/SciFi (Really enjoy anime in this genre... Vandread/Crest of the Stars/Cowboy Bebop)
-Ecchi (Dont mind if there is a story but dont really want since ecchi anime dont usually have story) (Maburaho/Godannar/Hand Maid May)
-Drama (Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien/Gungrave/Izumo -Takeki Tsurugi no Senki-)
-Magic (DN Angel/Edens Bowy/Magikano)

I am looking for anime with certain stories that are not like naruto/Bleach with just continues action only
-Kyou Kara Maou (Intersting a kid goes to a different world and becomes king.. wierd to get flushed down a toilet though lol)
-Trinity Blood (Vampire anime with revenge of lover..) (Nice to see anime like this with a similar story with even the main guy getting a new love)
-Fate Stay/Night (Interesting story if youve seen it)
-Vandread (I thought it was intesting since it had every genre possible lol... Its a space anime with action and adventure with even romance)

Overall i dont mind any anime as long as its not ridiculous and not too new with MAINLY a good/strange/intersting story. (After i hope u read this long thing, please dont even post naruto/bleach/Deathnote or those widely known since im sure everyone seem them.)

Kino no Tabi is a great adventure anime. Lots of places she travels to.

Now & Then, Here & There is also a great adventure/action anime.

Alien Nine is also a good science fic/coming of age anime if your ok with being totally confused by the ending of the anime, but if you want the whole story you would have to get the manga.

Gravitation is a good romance series. I've not watched the whole thing yet, but what I've seen is excellent. Sunnapia1 on YouTube has the first few eps with Englisg subs.

I'm not sure what all you've seen, but here are some random off the beaten path suggestions you may not have heard of.

Mahoraba ~Heartfull Days~ - a fun bishoujou romantic comedy
Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha - Imagine a well done magical girl anime targeted at an older audience with all the filler cut out, and you have Nanoha
Kanon (2006) - Well done slow paced romantic comedy anime
Genshiken - Story of an oddball college anime fan club, very funny
Rozen Maiden - Internet and CR favorite anime about goth loli dolls that come to life
Revolutionary Girl Utena - shoujou-ai from one of the sailor moon directors, this used to be very popular when anime was starting to get big in the US several years ago, but has since vanished from the mainstream. One of my fav animes of all, though it doesn't really pick up till third season.

id suggest
Rozen Maiden
Elfen Lied

Midori no Hibi (romance, comedy)
Beating angel dokuro-chan
DearS a bit similar as chobits AT FIRST but yeah, its not chobits.....
zero no tsukaima
ikete tutari
melancholy of haruhi suzumiya

Kino no tabi is great but it just lacks a main plot/storyline,

hope there will be some good suggestions here with note so many ep just love "short" animes

Here's a few more I didn't see on your list:

Escaflowne - Shoujou mecha fantasy, unusual character design and great story
Onegai Sensei - one of my all time favs
Onegai Twins - not quite as good as Onegai Sensei, but still very good
Dual - comedy mecha anime, loose parody of Eva
Mai Hime - One of the best animes I've seen in the past couple years, sort of magical girl meets mecha type thing
Air - If you enjoy Kanon, this is from the same people and very similar in feel
Pita Ten - fun magical gril type anime, one of my "guilty pleasures"
Simoun - Just started this myself, an odd sci-fi bishoujou type anime, I would highly recommend based on what I've seen so far.
3x3 Eyes - classic anime about a tibetan demon and her defender, watch both series

If your desperate, I'd highly recommend giving Utena another chance. Episodes 1-13 are the foundation for the series, 14-24 is basically filler and not essential viewing (though it does add a little), 25-33 is the "meat" of the series, 34-39 is the epic finale.

I think you're problem maybe you've been in the subculture too long and you've seen most of the quality stuff that's known at all. I'd recommend digging in deep to whats being fansubbed right now and see if there is anything good happening off the radar.

This is an okay list that may point out some stuff you've overlooked. I don't necessarily agree with it point by point, but it's one of the more complete lists I've seen to do date.
