DNA^2 is a really good sci-fi romance from the mid 90's that not many people have heard of. It's really hard to find though. I had to go to several stores to find the complete set, and I'm not even sure it's an authentic copy. There is an English sub and a dub as well.

Also, Golden Boy. It's a 6 episode OVA from the mid 90's. It's kind of a harem, but not exactly. It's just a fun romantic comedy that focuses much more on the comedy side. Also, there is no nudity, but I still wouldn't watch it with kids.

Sailor Moon (its a classic show, manga is super and there is a remake coming out this year)

Maison Ikkoku (the best romantic comedy/romance)

Perfect Blue

Akira

Revolutionary Girl Utena/Adolescence of Utena (another mindfuck like Evangelion but more theatrical. contains shoujo-ai too)

The Vision of Escaflowne

Great Teacher Onizuka

Serial Experiments Lain (mindfuck!)

Ah! My Goddess the Movie (yes, you can watch this without knowing anything 'bout the series, trust me)

Now and Then, Here and There (NOT for the fainthearted and one of the most moving animes ever)

Please Save My Earth OVA's (but the manga tells the whole story of course)

Ghost in the Shell (full series including movies etc.)

Shamanic Princess

Slam Dunk

Magic Knight Rayearth 1 and 2 (part 2 was VERY different from the manga!)

Memories (by the same person who made Akira)

Glass Mask (watch the 2005 anime...the manga was started and is set in the 70's though and is still ongoing)

X the movie (okay, this movie is complete garbage but the art is gorgeous and the music is psychedelic. manga is just excellent, but it has been on hiatus for 14 years!! but still, if you want to read the manga, read Tokyo Babylon FIRST, then X...both do contain light shonen-ai though, nothing physical though)

SoldierSangria has a pretty darn good list there... I'd recommend those as well as Fusihigi Yuugi.

Well, thanks to the first part of your comment...But gosh, in my opinion Fushigi Yugi is one of the absolute worst anime and manga ever. Just horrible, horrible series! I found this commentary on a website where you could formerly read the manga...I'll link it to you. It really sums up my hatred of the manga, and even the anime.

I would have recommended 12 Kingdoms and Saiunkoku Monogatari, but the OP said only series up to the 90's...But both these shows are superb, especially 12 Kingdoms which I personally consider the best fantasy anime/light novels of all time.

Anime based off of old manga like Jojo are also welcomed.
BIG fan of hand drawn/cel animation.

*cheers*


Hi! Looks like you've got lots of suggestions! I'm going to close this now because we already have a thread for requesting recommendations. Here's the link for future reference, if you end up wanting to request other recommendations:

/forumtopic-7173/recommend-me-an-anime-read-first-post

(That's also one of the "sticky" threads near the top of the Anime forum, so even if you lose the link, it should be easy to find the thread)
