Bebop is considered the best gateway anime...apparently. Azumanga Daioh arguably too.

Maybe FMA or...I dunno. Tiger & Bunny might work, since it's basically just an anime version of a western superhero series.

Trigun's a good one, too. I recommend Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, though. It's very accessible for non-Japanese, but still has enough anime tropes that it'll ease you into the medium.

I second this, especially Cowboy Bebop and Tiger & Bunny.

Steins;Gate is fantastic.

yup and Psycho Pass isn't half bad either(but not even close to being as good as Steins;Gate)

So can someone give me a little info on Ghost in the Shell? I really know nothing about it (and of course I could just google it) but I'd like to hear some opinions I guess. I've tried watching it on Toonami before but it simply airs too late for me. Basically, is it worth my time to watch it?

One thing I love about Space Dandy is how it says "To be continued..." after each episode, yet each episode seems to be on a completely different continuity than the last.

Does it? I haven't noticed any episode saying that so far. The last one just ended with a shout out to George A. Romero, lol.

Can't wait to watch the new Space Dandy tomorrow. Between this and Rick and Morty, Adult Swim is single-handedly making me wish I had TV again. I never thought I'd say that.

There are Ghost in the Shell movies and TV shows. Movies have unique story with action pack in my opinion while the TV shows are more like crime shows you watch on TV. I'm not even kidding about that part but it is "different" crime shows. You still have to watch the TV shows at the first episode and continue since it is actually series. I could say you could watch any movies in any order but I still recommend watching the first movie first. If you don't like the movie then you may not like other movies but you may like the TV shows.

In other word, TV shows and the movies are different but are not far fetch though.

Umm… Care to have some gravy?

Thanks for the info! It sounds like something I would like, so long as it's got good action. And from what I can tell from the few episodes I've seen, it looks really good in a lot of aspects. I'll be sure to watch it at some point, I will probably start with the first movie like you said.
