Here's the Death Note Opening 1, sorry for odd video site, it's VERY hard to find now with Viz attacking so many sites, a few months ago I'd just have looked it up on Youtube. Strangely they haven't touched any videos of the second opening....

I've been meaning to watch Bleach, Dragonball, One Piece, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Gundam.
However, there are so many iterations of the latter two that I have trouble discerning what to watch. I've also heard the dub of One Piece is pretty bad.

One Piece has a great dub now that Funimation is behind it. Bleach is...not so great. The anime version has too much filler. I'm gonna rewatch it someday and stop at Episode 63, where it really should've ended. Dragonball's great, though. Make sure to watch it uncut!

Fullmetal Alchemist has two different adaptions that are similar until halfway through. The Manga-faithful adaption is FMA: Brotherhood, while the show titled Fullmetal Alchemist goes becomes its own thing halfway through. You can't really go wrong with either, they're both very good. Though most seem to agree that Brotherhood is the better of the two.

As for Gundam, as I just told Retro yesterday, you can start anywhere with the main series so long as it isn't a sequel - Zeta Gundam, ZZ Gundam, and SEED Destiny are the only true sequels. And even then, they're sorta standalone, with completely different tones and styles from their predecessors. They're the Final Fantasy of the anime world, basically. Every show is self contained, with only certtain elements conecting them together.

Normally, though, I recommend starting at the beginning with the original Mobile Suit Gundam. Not only is it a classic, and the source for much of the connecting elements throughout the franchise, but you'll then be able to watch the OVAs (08th MS Team, Stardust Memories, War in the Pocket, MS Igloo) which are arguably better than the longer series. Be warned, though: It has lower production values even anime of its day. It did not have a very good budget. I also think it has a much better english voice cast.

Gottcha. Did Funimation redo the entire show, or just where 4Kids left off?

Good.
Also, on Bleach I have a friend who is obsessed with Bleach, but he says to just skip over the filler.

3 different mecha shows are coming out, plus the continuation of Gundam Unicorn and Code Geass: Akito The Exiled. So yes, I'm very, very excited.
