okay, i have a few choices for a few categories:


adult oreinted (not hentai):


Cowboy Bebop: mature adult themes (drugs, sexuality) handled in a mature way that serves only to highlight the characters traits and flaws, not the substances themselves

Fullmetal Alchemist: makes the viewer consider the idea of mortality and loss, and the consequences associated with obsession over loss. the scene where Ed is willing to commit an act of multiple murder to undo his actions is a highlight of this.

Shigofume (letters from the dead): another darker anime that deals with the loose ends that need tying after death and what motivates people to commit terrible actions. helped me through the death of a loved one.

comedy:

Gurren Lagann: a hilarious romp with overy macho Kamina leading the way. the main character at one point bends time and space itself, just for the purpose of slugging his friend in the face (granted there was a good reason he needed it)

FLCL: a staple of the WTF!?!? genre. its six episodes led a generation of adult swim viewers in a lesson about japanese pop culture, guitar models, and why robots simply kick ass

Hanasaku Iroha: a great coming of age tale, but once you see the scene that spawned the line "I want to sparkle!" you will want to Bonboru "Fest it up!"

action:

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex ; gritty cyberpunk counter-terrorism visual glee. can be hard to follow for the faster paced crowd, but well worth it.

Appleseed (movie): amazing cell shaded masterpiece with great music and a pulse pounding ending. the only problem i had was the stark contrast of a character's red shoes on a dark metal helicopter step (and it was just a second)

Eureka Seven: stunning, simply amazing to see and hear. cannot praise this show enough. the fight scenes are mind-blowing

those nine titles are by no means a full list, just what immediately popped into my mind

obviously im going to name my favorite animes, but i'll give you reasons to watch them aswell.
Bleach: YOU MUST WATCH BLEACH OR YOU ARE MISSING OUT IN LIFE!!! xDD it has a really good storyline, awesome characters, some really badass fights, lovely art and the animeation progresses, and loads of hilarious scenes. it might starts of slow in the beginning of the show, and sure it has plenty of annoying fight scenese and boring filler arcs but overall it is truly a brilliant masterpiece!
The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya: oh em gee, this anime is extremely funny and relateable. well not completely relateable but its really good. a very short anime series but very good. great if you want something lighthearted. also if your concerned the animation in the movie is very good.
Hell Girl: i find the storyline very unique and interesting and gripping. the characters are v pretty, you ought check it out.
