As in the perfect example or representation of what an Anime is.

To make it more interesting show some commitment and only choose one.

animeeshun word meaning animation, short anime. Japanese call all cartoons no matter where they are from anime, that includes Bugs Bunny.

That sad I just assume you meant Japanimation.

I have a hard time picking being I started in the 80's but if I had to choose an j-anime that should and would represent j-anime at its best, I have to go with the classic J-cartoon. Touch.

In Our Day, Junior--the old late-80's/early 90's club days, before subtitles, dubs, or corporate VHS companies, let alone DVD or streaming--there was one show EVERY underground US fan had to be devoted to by law, because we'd never seen anything like it before.
Think the cartoon equivalent of Monty Python's first American invasion in '74.

To our generation, Ms. L. Invader WAS anime. No debate about it:

Lucky Star obviously. If you haven't watched it you understand nothing about anime.

That's like asking what the most quintessential song to represent all music is. Too many genres, I couldn't even begin to pick one.

I never saw the anime - does it stay true to Adachi's manga or does the plot deviate or get highly abridged?

Cowboy Bebop. Pretty much the perfect series without having any dull episodes. Music, animation, characters, story are all top notch.

Like Monty Python first appearing in the US in the 70's, the experience of late-80's/early-90's anime blowing open your doors of cartoon perception had a name, a title, a cute face, and a catchphrase to become our secret-password mantra:

You'll have to search around the bootleg-streaming ether for Urusei Yatsura, unfortunately:
Back in the days when only little garage companies could subtitle anime on VHS, AnimEigo put out the entire run on DVD before eventually being crushed by the new big industry.
Fortunately, they got the whole series onto DVD (50 disks and six movies) by '05, but they've been long out of print, and it's not like anyone's going to afford getting the license back soon. Viz talked about it, but...

Best hope to look up the classic "Beautiful Dreamer" movie, or rumored Blu-ray upgrade, as the one that got away from AE's license.

Tell you the truth I don't know wile I am a huge fan of manga I never read touch in manga form..

but the Japanimation did a good job to have you invested in the characters.. it is one of 3 anime in my entire life to have me laughing, crying, and rooting for all the characters. ' even after 100+ EPISODES still did not feel like enough. Only show I felt I would never get tired of.
