Thanks for the recommendations.

I'll probably check out Rurouni Kenshin first.

I've wanted to watch both Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo for a while.

And Bleach is too long of an anime for me, I can't go through something like that again (ex. One Piece). I'll probably just read the manga for a bit, and if I really really like it, then i'll switch over to anime.

Also, I have an anime i'd like to post on here for you guys.

It's called Gurren Lagann. I'm gonna watch it as well. It appears that Hulu has all 27 episodes.

Gurren Lagann is the shit! I'm not really big on mecha animes, but that series is awesome.

Also, to the OP, if you enjoy Yu Yu Hakusho then I'd check out Hunter x Hunter as well

I watched an anime movie but I can't remember the name of it and was hoping maybe somebody would know. All I remember is that tue main character wears earrings containing the blood of her parents. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated. Phone Post

Alrighty. Since kenshin has already been mentioned, I just want to throw out that I've heard they're doing a live action version...but that's all I've heard.

Baccano! for random prohibition era immortally type nonsense.
Gatchaman - cheesy music, classic storyline, and 70's style clothing. Who doesn't want to be a part of a science ninja team?
Outlaw Star - classic 90's anime, complete with annoying catgirl.
Any of the movies done by Hayao Miyazaki - He's an animation god. Don't question it. I've never heard anyone say they don't like Totoro, and it's a kids movie. Because Miyazaki-sensei is a god.
Paprika - There have been many questions as to whether the movie inception was inspired by this anime movie. But watch it anyway.
Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt - No. It's not a porn. But you will not feel clean about watching it. Definitely NSFW. Think southpark, with crime fighting angels. Foul angels.
Deathnote - people hate it because everyone loves it, but everyone loves it for a reason.
Excel Saga - Weirdest anime ever. I'm still not sure what the plot is.
Record of Lodoss War - Classic classic classic classic classic. Classic. Parn and Deedlit ftw!

There are still others that I feel like I'm forgetting. Admittedly, some of these are older (as in not made in the last year or so) so the animation style might be a bit different than what you'd see with some of the newer stuff, but if you give them a chance I think you'll enjoy them.

Lol at your Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt description. Sounds interesting.

And deathnote sounds pretty cool as well. Phone Post

If you like Miyazaki (and anyone with a pulse should, imo...) check out stuff by Makoto Shinkai (and be prepared to cry....  "Voices from a Distant Star" gets me everytime.)

It's hard to describe panty and stocking. I tried to do it justice. It's weird. But it's hard not to love it. Phone Post

Ok, just watched the first episode of Deathnote and now i'm hooked.

Such an awesome concept for a show. I'm gonna go ahead and add it on to my Hulu queue for later viewing.
