    Wow, that's like saying you like food, so suggest something good to eat. Give an example of things that you like about anime and I'll be happy to suggest some shows that I think you would enjoy.

    I agree with Prelude but I'll give a couple of suggestions if either of you need a starting point. A light-hearted comedy that's classic anime is Love Hina. A classic that's more serious and action filled is Cowboy Bebop.

    Remember that there are all types of anime and it's not just for kids. Do a little homework before you watch a random show.

    The only anime worth watching is Dragonball Z. Teehee.

    I definitely would recommend Cowboy Bebop if not just for the absolutely amazing sound track. Love Hina's a good series and the mangas are quite humerous. If you're in to completely random nonsense I'd vouch for Excel Saga also.

    Garfield and Friends - good ideas
    The Simpsons - even more good ideas

    oh, thanks for the list, indigo0086. i'll try to watch them all.
    Prelude, i agree, i didn't describe what i wanted exactly. That's because i've just discovered how big anime world really is and i really don't know what i want/like. So far the best things i've seen are `ghost in the shell`, `death note` (3 eps), ohh, and ranma 1/2 is pretty good. Right now i'll watch anything, so just suggest something you like best.

    ...I didn't put monster on the list...

    *jumps off building*

    although a manga to anime adaptation it is one of the most compelling stories I've ever seen animated. No one holds a candle to Monster cliffhangers, appropriately named.

    The simpsons isn't anime, while it is one of the greatest works of animation in history (american or otherwise), it isn't what is generally accepted as anime.

    Luckily there are no japanese stuff in my TV channels atm.
    It is just too... "silly action movie with happy ending" and no jokes... boring.

    How did Japanese get a whole word for THEIR cartoons?
