    I'm a bit of an anime addict. Some of my recommended Anime (not strong on films - I tend to prefer the TV series):

    TV series:
    Last Exile - Still airing. Steampunk flying battleships, superb visuals.
    Initial D - 'realistic' Japanese boy racer antics
    Cowboy Bebop - Starsky and hutch/Magnum PI in space?
    Ghost in the Shell TV series - slightly different than the film, better.
    All old School UC Gundam
    Gundam Seed and Gundam X - more modern but slightly less emphasis on 'realism'
    Rah Xephon - Modern big mecca show, Evangelion esk but better
    Inu Yasha - Cutesey (well, by my standards) girl loves half demon ninja thang.
    Hack//sign - about people playing an mmorpg. Slow paced.
    Wolfs Rain - wolves (able to turn into people) searching for paradise in a future world extinct of wolves.

    Films:
    Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust - same people as Ninja Scroll.
    Ninja Scroll - classic Demon vs Nija stuff.
    Ghost in the Shell - Futuristic, slightly cyberpunk. Somewhat short.
    Wrath of the Ninja - similar vein to Ninja Scroll
    Most of the Big TV shows get film versions.

    Never heard of escaflowne??? I dont believe it. Go and check out at least episodes 1-5, and i have a feeling you will be hooked. If not, then there is no hope.
    I'll download them in sept when i get to my uni house. I dont like buying anime straight off cause its very hit and miss tbh. If its good - ill buy it, it not it gets deleted.
    I dont like sig pics so i turn off sigs Which doesnt help when i dont know what ive written here! DOH!

    Oh yea, i enjoyed the series better than the film. I thought the film was too short But the series is just one h00ge long film cut up basically. I love those bug things (forgotten what they are called).

    Yeh, thats fair enough. I always like to watch a few episodes of an anime series before I go out and buy it. That way if it sucks i dont bother, but most of the time they dont. Except for Yu-Gi-Oh, I am so happy I didnt buy any of that carp.

    Yu Gi Oh is hilarious the kiddy one on sky one

    as for Escaflowne. 1 - 5 will be more than enough. whatever u do dont get all 26 at once, cos ull watch them all at once... and BAM 8 hours of ur life are gone
    but... its strangely refreshing to come away from p
