Recommend some anime

I was never really into anime but I saw a video of an old Toonami promo called "space" and I remembered Cowboy Bebop which I only saw bits and pieces before the magic of DSL. I finished the sessions and I gotta say it was pretty awesome, specially the music. Rush is the ultimate fight song.

Too short though, I'll probably check out Watanabe's other anime and Akira, but are there any other good ones I should know about?

You should try watching Berserk. It's only 25 episodes but you'll be shitting bricks by the end. I was definitely scarred haha.

And as for movies Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away are the shit.

Fist of the Northstar

the madmax/kung-fu goregrind/pure blasting brutality/intense massive bombardment/brutal blasting tornado/demolishing thelimic force of anime.

actually the storyline got fucked in the movie, the series is way more detailed and has awesome character development. motherfuckin' RAOH.

"Neo Tokyo has become an over-ripe fruit that's begun to
sink. But there's a new seed germinating inside. All we have to do is wait for
the wind to blow, and the fruit will fall into our hands.
Wait for the wind called Akira"

Seen this movie about 30 times, unfortunately they're working on a live action remake. :(

Scratch that.

In June, 2009, it was reported that Ruairi Robinson had left the project and the film was "Dead as a doornail".

the 1st Ghost in the Shell was boring imo, though the series is a bit better. it dabbles too much with philosophy and shit. my tatest on anime is pretty much dated since since i've lost interest but these are the essentials for me:

Akira - the start of cell animation
Barefoot Gen - an ultra gory and emotional historic animated movie about the bombing of Hiroshimia
Fist of the Northstar - the best shit you will ever watch.
Urotsikodoji - the beginning of tentacle hentai

as for series, besides that were mentioned - go check out Basislisk

man i was soooooooooooo into death note, that series went on forever but i watched every single episode i think! the second half felt like they were really pushing the limit of 1-plot-detail-per-show, but the characters were awesome.

i seriously love old pokemon shows...but maybe thats just nostalgia

if you want a funny and interesting animation style, check out SHINCHAN. its basically an american show voiced over anime, because they changed the translations to include political/cultural jokes. just check youtube i guess

Samurai X reflections and also the two part Samurai X motion pictures are great. the actual Anime sucks balls due to conflict with the original creator and his company.
Reflections get's pretty depressing.

and these are two of my favourite Hayao Miyazaki films
