    Any good anime?

    Ever since my friend showed me some anime, I couldn't get enough of the stuff. But its becoming a problem.Ya see, theres a lot of anime out there, but the only channel I can find some of it is on the [adult swim] block. And theres little shops that sells anime where I live. What should I do?

    There are Internet/Mail Order sites that you can purchase Anime DVDs from, as well as mail DVD rental shops. It also pays to look at some of the Anime magazines (such as USA NewType) to look over the series previews to see what kind of series might interest you...

    yeah
    Best Buy

    anime DVDs = the average is around $20
    anime box sets = around $30-40 (most of them has the DVD with a plush, an OST, or maybe some pins included)
    anime complete collections = ranging from $50 to $150
    manga = $10 (selection is limited; Peacemaker, Chrono Crusade, etc)
    the joy of sitting on your ass, watching anime all day = priceless
    I love my girlfriend.

    I sugguest taking a good look back on the series you liked and using that as a backbone for exploring new titles.
    Ask yourself why you liked them, what elements of them did you like and use that as a start. Look for different anime from the same studio/original writer/creator/character designer/genre etc. Stay with what you're familar with first, and then start branching into different types of anime and different genres. Check out interent pages like fansites, reviews sites and talk to other fans about different series.
    Checking out Newtype as Len suggested is a good idea too.

    That's what I did when I was an Anime newbie with only Evangelion under my belt.
    Now the type of anime I like now is nothing like Eva at all.

    In terms of anime movies I can realy recommend Appleseed. Not the classic type of anime but the classic artwork style mixed with advanced 3d animations. Good plot as well.
