I was never a large anime fan. I just never really had the time to get into it. A month or two ago, a friend of mine convinced me to try Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I got hooked pretty quickly. I kept hearing terrible things about Fullmetal, but I went back and watched the original series and it made me a sad, sad person.
Anyway, as I was saying, I did really enjoy the Brotherhood series. It got me wondering what other good anime series were out there that I'd be able to enjoy. Remember, I've never seen any other series before, so if you have a favorite or something you'd reccomend, new or old, I'd love to hear it! I have too much time to burn =)
edit: And then, of course, I find sy's list. I really need to pay more attention.
