I think Soul Eater is one worth checking out.Found it pretty entertaining. Air Gear is good also
I would suggest Gundam Wing to anybody who doesn't mind hearing the D word and is okay with giants Robots. It's only got 45 episodes, but I thought it was really good. Can't say about the other Gundam series, because I've only seen Wing.
As much as I love the Anime, I would not suggest Ronin Warriors unless you like cheesy lines, corniness, it being only 39 episodes, and pretty stale animation. Gawsh, I love that show so much. Yes I'm weird like that.
Oh yeah, and an annoying brat WHO WILL NEVER LEAVE THEM ALONE. That's one of the few things I hate about that show.
To be honest, I've heard of almost none of these animes people are talking about. But maybe I'll check them out eventually...

Anybody that likes Key's works or relationship-driven anime in general should check out Clannad (and Clannad: After Story). Very heartwarming in places, very sad in some, and funny in others. Also has a great soundtrack. Highly recommended.
I also back up Cobalt Latios' recommendation of Gurren Lagann. Pretty much the anime equivalent of Saturday morning cartoons. Very hot-blooded and fun to watch.

Ouran High School Host Club!!! It's a great anime, I thought I would hate it since it's about Pretty Boys and stuff. Thought I would hate it then I watched it and I was shocked at how I liked it even at the odd bits where your like umm what? But It's really funny great music and is a good anime.

Recommending the 1st Pretty Cure sereis(cuz thats the only one I've seen). I haven't watched the subs, but the dub is really faithful to the Japanese episodes, and a reaally interesting series also.
If you like movies like the day after tomorrow, you really should watch Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 the second episode just aired a few days ago, it's pretty good, but more of a serious anime.
i would suggest Shin Mazinger Shougeki! Z-Hen. its a retelling of the original and it follows the original manga storyline which is more dark and violent than the old 1972 Mazinger Z. if any1 is gonna watch it just a little heads up, episode 1 will most likely confuse you or w/e cause it show bits of whats gonna happen in the future.
I would suggest Tokyo Magnitude 8.0.
It's fairly new, and they finished making the ep. so you wont have to wait for the new releases.
At first I wasn't going to watch it because it sounded a bit plain at first, but I'm glad I watched it. It became one of my new favourite anime's of all times.~
It is a REAL tear jerker. I honestly haven't cried that hard in a long time.
It's basically about a girl who goes to a robot exhibition when a sudden (and powerful) earthquake hit's Tokyo. And they have to survive the 'after shock' of it and get back home. Trust me, watch it.
I would suggest (even though most people know about it) Gurren Lagann.
That anime had a way of just firing people up! And had real twist's.~ Honestly when you watch it you're going to be like 'Wow, I wasn't expecting that'. But of course in a goos way.xD
Some people thought there were 'too many filler's'. But personally I really didn't find there were any. Only time I thought there were was a bit of the ending and around the middle where they did a 'recap' of the series.
Anyway, it's a great anime. Powerful, great animation, both dubbed and original Japanese voices were amazing, and a good (yet sad) ending.
It's a mecha anime, but even if you're not really into that I'd still suggest it. This anime is what made me like mecha more.
I would also suggest Neon Genesis Evangelion. I still have maybe like 3 more ep. to go.xD But it's it's it's just so wonderful!!! <3
Although I have to warn you, this is more for people that have a taste for psychological anime with some gore here and there.
At the beginning it may seem pretty slow, but that's what makes it so unique. It doesn't jump into action right away. Nor is it a 'filler'. It's laid out just right. The creators of Evangelion are just amazing story tellers.
Throughout the anime, you'll see another world. But the way it was written with so much detail is incredible. It's as if it did exist in this world at one point. Evangelion was named one of the best anime's in the 90's. There are also some movies (which I haven't seen yet) but I hear they are good.~
Anyway watch it.8D
Anyway, I have A LOOOOOOOOOOT more suggestion's, but I'll see if anyone actually read this.xD
@The Doctor I love your signature.xD May I ask where the clip is from? Like a movie or something. c: I like those types of scenes where it's all glitched and freaky like that.xD
No anime suggestion thread, not matter how many years old, is complete without School Days.
But yeah, Gurren Lagann all the way. And Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.
This goes for the characters too. Some of the scenes are beyond cheesy, but they just... work. You will watch the hamming and you will like it.
I'm seeing a lot of mainstream titles getting recommended here, though... so in an effort to try and make things a little more varied: anyone know of any more obscure titles that don't get the hype and recognition they may deserve?
Anyway, I would love some recommendations on anime that don't suck*.
For a frame of reference here are a few of anime that don't suck: Outlaw Star, Bubblegum Crisis, Ranma 1/2, Sailor Moon.
*Don't suck in this case meaning similar to anime I like
I guess just anything that doesn't usually appear in most people's list of OMGSUPERFAVORITE anime series? Old anime that have been forgotten in the passing years count, too.
No I think I saw a small clip of the last few ep, and it looked pretty good! o:
But I guess I just really like Evangelion, it's just so original and f'd up.xD
I love those sort of things.~
Gurrn Lagann was the SHIZZ!!
ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWA.
I kind of liked FMA better than FMA:Brotherhood in some ways.xD Which one was your favourite?
EDIT: I know what you mean...
Hmmm well I can't remember very much titles ATM but here are some...
Nabari No ou
Tokyo Magnitude 8.0
Ergo Proxy (don't know if that's considered mainstream?)

If I were to recommend something that's slightly more obscure then... Kaiji. ParaChomp will back me up on this one. Don't let the art style deter you, this is one hell of a suspenseful show. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
