You all heard it, this is the law so I want to see actual discussion in here and as always try to lead by example.

Frankly the series is awesome; it is action packed and has a certain "coolness" factor to it. The main story line has a lot of depth and even the filler episodes are good because they fit so well into the series. The series has one of the best bad guys ever and Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky 4th is as original as they come. The music is my personal favorite of any series out there and had pizzazz.
Rurouni Kenshin - (Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal)
The closest thing I have seen to a complete series. The graphics are awesome and the character design is tight. I feel the story line is very enjoyable and even though a bit slow at first it left me wanting to see the rest of it all the way through not to mention Alex Rowe is the freaking man. The music scores were good and I even thought the dub was top notch.
These are just my top three, with all the anime I have seen it is hard to just pick 3 as so many are so close but these are mine so enjoy.
Probably the best OVA set I have ever seen. The cinematography is top notch and you have to watch it twice just to pick up on it all (the cinematography that is). It tells the deep and tragic story of a young samurai and is simply the standard in samurai movies. Lots of action, even though at the end I would have liked to see more sword action but that is my personal preference. Can't say the musical score left an impression on me but that may be because the story had me so locked in.
