Black Butler (2008)
woohoo! I love black butler and yes it is mostly because Sebi is awesome. He made household chores fun I mean I now do them thinking I am female version of sebastian, LOL but yeah I have a knack for relating to characters too much. He even won the hottest anime award of I guess 2010 or 9. The best thing about this anime is its artwork and level of details they put into it.
I loved the Sebastian and Grell character and the scenes they had together were fun to watch.
This series doesn't follow manga and has a storyline of its own esp. the second season which I think was amazing, and pretty tightly written. Some people say it was pure for fan service but hell if it does that so what?
May be I am in minority here but I liked season 2 more than 1.
I am waiting for season 3, I heard rumors that it will be launched around 2013 beginning or in the end of 2012. I also read that probably they'll follow manga this time, let's see :)
Oh and this anime season 2 has the most weird ending ever I mean I was like :O in the end don't want to spoil it but watch out for it :D

OVA:
It has lots of OVAs and I believe all of them are amazing and add little bit more sense to the story in my opinion. My personal fav is regarding the Grell and Will's relationship and on 2nd number is the behind the scenes one.

Death Note (2006)
DO NOT tell anyone you are watching it until you are done with it because man people love to spoil it for you. really, no kidding! I was warned and I didn't even do a wiki search on it and it was worth it.
Death note is a fast paced roller coast drama that doesn't slow down at all. Sometimes I was thinking ok now the lead is trapped, there is no way he'll get out and I was surprised all the time, again and again throughout the series.
I even cried during the series you know :'( but anyways I recommend everyone to watch it. It's that awesome!

oh and on visual level, I loved the animation of rain and how they depicted it in the series!

I was bit skeptical before jumping into it but then I watched the pilot and I was hooked.
Fullmetal alchemist takes you to another world where alchemy is a part of everyday life and you can construct, deconstruct and reassemble things in life using transmutation circles. Pretty cool if you ask me.
The artwork is cool, not great as black butler's but story is interesting.
This anime series starts itself following manga and then starts its own interpretation and story arcs. characters are same as manga but somehow I didn't like the ending that much. I mean I was like nooooo! thats the point where I wished it was made in hollywood at least I would have been happier with ending.
This Tv series then go into after-ending in their movie, the conquerer of shamballa, which is good, don't take me wrong but still the ending of that movie is not that great and I kept on thinking I wish it was better!

FMA is cool and is pretty tightly written. Voice actors are awesome.

OVAs:
sigh they are so pointless and I was wondering, what was the point in making them.

I liked Fulmetal alchemist a lot, you can see my rating for it. 9/10 I mean I was very much satisfied excpet for ending so when I got to know that there is 2nd series based on the same characters, I was very very skeptical. wWhy watch a remake but then I was told it was based on manga and apparently has better rating than FMA so I thought to give it a go, just to see what was the big fuss about and why loads of people were shouting FMA: brotherhood is amazing and FMA is not great.
So it started. The first 3-4 episode of brotherhood are really crappy esp if you have seen FMA, and they are felt so jumpy at times but later on brotherhood starts revealing itself and its arcs starts developing. I can't explain the series without FMA so here it goes and yes will make sure there are no spoilers in it. :)

1- FMA has better voice acting than bortherhood where edward has to shout all the time. Its annoying at times.
2- There are jokes in top serious moments which sometimes feel really out of place but thank God don't spoil the moments.
3- Brotherhood has better character developments, better artwork and details regarding character/events are really great.
4- brotherhood in the end is better because of the simple fact that characters and story are great and better. I mean when you watch the series, you will start feeling that villains in FMA are sissy as compared to their bortherhood twins. This series made me sad for King bradley I mean come on, but yes King Bradley's fight was the appex of series for me and in FMA he was so sissy lol.

Fights are awesome in this series by the way. for me best one was king Bradley's and then Mustang's.

OVAs:
pointless as usual, I have yet to watch the movie but I am not that looking forward to it.

Update
Is it me or Tom Selleck looks like a live version of king bradley?

Cowboy Bebop (1998)
Cowboy Bebop is THE anime which you are going to see in almost every anime fan's favorite anime list. It is a setting that we all are familiar with like couple of oddballs, each with his/her own agenda and past are stuck together to continue working as a bounty hunter using a ship to travel from one place to another in a distant future. I loved the music, the mood and finding out the character's back stories is always fun. It is already recommended a lot so if you are new to anime world, this is a worthy anime to look forward to.

Hi everyone!
I have been watching animations (hollywood not asian), live-action movies and Tv shows and I kept myself intentionally away from anime because a: I thought my whole animation sense would go off since anime and typical 2d disney animations are made on different beats and b: Its a huge world and frankly pretty confusing at first I mean whats manga and whats anime and what exactly are OVA's anyway. My geek friend asked me to view inuyasha and bleach and GOD look at the number of episodes they have. wow!
But lately in april 2012, I was given black butler from the same geeky friend who said ok fine, sont watch inuyasha and stop whining about long number of episdoes, watch it and if you feel like it then watch more so phew here I am, reluctantly in this world but wow I am loving it :) I cant believe either. lol

Great taste and I appreciated reading your comments on each--I need to check out Black Butler! As for recommendations, you should try Outlaw Star. Under the radar for most, but it's one of my all-time favorites, and definitely inspired many sci-fi and anime greats. Enjoy!!
