Hmm...it's gotta be M.D. Geist:Deathforce, or Masami Obari's magnum opus, Voltage Fighters Gowcaizer.

Kidding aside, and not in any real order, these are the ones that stick out in my mind:

NGE
SDF:Macross
Riding Bean
Gunbuster
Bubblegum Crisis
Nausicca

I'm really enjoying Madoka Magica right now, but we'll see if it becomes a favorite.

I think my favorite moment in anime is anytime Kenshiro uses one of his techniques and the instrumental version of "You Wa Shock!" plays, but I don't need to watch a scene like that 80+ times, so I haven't been able to sit through that series.

- Code Geass
- Eureka Seven
- Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
- Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai
- Lucky Star
- Haruhi Suzumiya
- Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai
- Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Not a huge fan of anime per se but I do enjoy the occasional Ghibli film and Cowboy Bebop.

Not very original choices I know :unsure:

NGE's a given, as I've come to this forum.

In somewhat the same vein, I have also enjoyed:
Martian Successor Nadesico (absolutely hilarious)
RahXephon (so like NGE, and yet so unlike - definitely not a clone)
Gurren Lagann (just such fun to watch, and good characters too)

Other Sci-Fi stuff:
Cowboy Bebop (pleasant, but I won't rave about it like some do)
Fullmetal Alchemist (both versions - I clearly prefer the earlier one)
Redline (a film that's fun, but very disposable)
Akira (a classic, and it's clear why in spite of the odd face proportions)

More domestic:
FLCL (so exhilarating - another classic)
Azumanga Daioh (if you ever simply want a reason to smile, just come here)
Kare Kano (an affecting love story beautifully told until it peters out before the end)
Madoka Magica (a really dark subversion of the genre - very equivocal ending)
Haruhi Suzumiya (watch in chronological order for best effect, I'd say)

Weird - just weird:
Mindgame (a film that's haunting me; I need to watch it again before judging it)

Waiting on the shelf:
Ghost in the Shell (two movies, not series)
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
Daily Lives of High School Boys

If anyone wants to know, I prefer dubs to subs when available, as my ancient brain isn't so good at the multiprocessing required by subs :P.
