Boys Next Door
My favorite anime is Elfen Lied. This anime might not be for everyone. Some people think it's too depressing and gory for their liking. It fits me just fine, especially since I'm so "emo." In my honest opinion, Elfen Lied gives you something to laugh about, cry about, and get angry about. The art is great, the girls are really cute. The music isn't the traditional jpop or jrock. Most of the songs, excluding a couple, are instrument only (Piano, violin, and what seems to be a flute). The characters are great, and easy to fall in love with, except for this one chick.
My second favorite anime would have to be FLCL. Before watching Elfen Lied, I never thought I liked any anime more than others, but I realised that I really enjoyed FLCL far more than other anime. FLCL is sometimes favored by alot of people, mostly because it's been aired on Adult Swim, and so all the anime "noobeh boobehs" choose it as one of their favorite shows, even though 99.9% of them don't even know what the hell the show is about. FLCL is different. You won't understand anything the first time, or most things the 3rd time. The show goes alot deeper than some people think. Some people take it literally, without giving it any though. "A robot that came out of a kid's head?? How stupid!" It's not THAT simple. It's creator is extremely different than others. FLCL is one of the few anime that turns into manga out of nowhere, or where the characters themselves recognize that they are in an anime. Also, another reason why most people don't understand it, is because alot of it comes from Japanese culture, I myself was confused at the 5th episode where Naota and his father were shooting at each other. The music is great. Granted, it IS jrock, but The Pillows are pretty cool, and almost all of their songs are great. I still have to get the soundtrack.
As for any anime after that, it's fair game, but some of my favorites include: Wolf's Rain (despite a crappy ending), Cowboy Bebop (despite being overplayed), Bleach, etc...
Most anime I've seen is from Cartoon Network, meaning Adult Swim, and some archaic Toonami shows as well. Most, but not all, thank God.
Edit: By the way, for all the n00bs out there. That's how you write a post in favorite thread. Most people (just look above) just list their favorite shows, with little or no explanation. When someone asks for your favorite show, it means tell us about it and why you like it. No one asked you to list a thousand shows that you like, with a sentence saying how you think it's cool or whatnot. It turns into a spam thread, and thus pisses off the mods. This is why "favorite" threads are no longer allowed (even though people still make them).
