I have always been a naruto fan although lately the fillers have made me less interested to follow the TV show. I read it in manga for all the exciting twists and turns.
What really keep me entertained are romantic comedy anime. Full Metal Panic Fumoffu leaves me rolling in laughter. Tengen Gurren Lagann is action-packed but the show is fun to watch and there are thrills in every corner.
how much of TOUCH is really baseball action, versus non sports drama? If there is a fair amount of Baseball action, you may like a slightly older series, which centers on a female baseball team (not softball) trying to make it to koshien. It's called Princess Nine.
Various individuals have uploaded virtually every episode from the past 22 years onto YouTube, in the original Japanese with English ST's... those and all of the movies to date (there's a new one coming out in April, I've heard.)
The quality of the uploads varies, but most of the ones I've watched so far have decent picture and sound (I have a good headset/mic with a USB connection.)
I also like Crayon Shin Chan sometimes... I didn't at first, because he can be a pain most of the time. I don't like the wife/mother, however (she really needs to enter an anger-management clinic); because she beats up her husband in almost every episode. They must have had an arranged marriage...

Stop tempting me to write a parody of Elvis Costello titled "Bump It Up"! Hmm, well, I actually remembered why I wrote my original two. Back in the golden age of BCDB, I was a tool. A lousy, unoriginal tool. Now that I have developed a real opinion, I can write my real favorites. Seeing as how important it is to everyone, I will be happy to write them out.
Fave Anime Series 1. Dragonball Z 2. Pokémon (ONLY first season) 3. Speed Racer 4. Sailor Moon 5. Gundam 6. Yu-Gi-Oh! 7. Bleach 8. Cowboy Bebop 9. InuYasha 10. Astro Boy
Fave Anime Films 1. Princess Mononoke 2. Spirited Away 3. Akira 4. Grave of the Fireflies 5. My Neighbor Totoro 6. Ghost in the Shell 7. Castle in the Sky 8. Kiki's Delivery Service 9. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Mind 10. Whisper of the Heart
As much as I love the traditional style of cartoons, two dimensional characters can be rather frustrating sometimes. Exhibit A:
Bleach is my most favorite anime show ever. It has very bewitch impact on me from it's starting episodes, which has out of queue storyline skeleton. Storyline which i have enjoyed starting to yet are totally epic and so enjoyable, which contain awesome action, adventure, sci-fi thiller, romance and drama like animated stuffs followed by dreadful/fighfull scary anime/manga character. That's why all Bleach episodes always enjoyable to me and i like to pick it as my most fave. anime ever.

In general I tend to stay away from anime. I find Japanese often painful to listen to (literally speaking, it actually gives me a headache), especially when the voice actors lack volume control and feel the need to scream every other word in a sentence. Also, I often find the story to weird to follow and enjoy. However, occasionally I do find a production I like.
As a kid I did love the Samurai Pizza Cats, though of course the American version is quite different from the original. I have been able to watch Spirited Away, though the weirdness factor is really on the edge of being to much. Arashi No Yoru Ni I can watch and enjoy mostly for the amazing animation. Ponyo I find to be a very charming and innocent movie, with a very tolerable weirdness level for an anime.
However, by far my favourite anime would have to be Night on the Galactic Railroad. The first half hour or so I have to get through, but after that its genuinely the only anime I know that really gets to me.

Hi, I would go with asuka langley soryu, a fictional character from Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise. Also that I have found a picture gallery of this anime asukalangleysoryu.com, holding a numerous collection of this cartoon character...
1. Death Note 2. The Prince of Tennis 3. Kuro***tsuji (Black Butler) 4. Love Hina 5. Baka and Test 6. Darker than Black 7. Dragonball Z 8. Blassreiter (you guys have probably never heard of it) 9. Fairy Tail (better than naruto for my own reasons)
I wouldn't jump to any conclusions here. Even if you aren't used to people knowing series you're into, Iwould bet here that a LOT more people will know.
This is just FYI btw (and it is not an accusatory statement or implication, please don't take it as such)- anime fans' various smug attitudes regarding their chosen fandom that seems so prevalent in some places is not welcome here and I usually come down swift and hard on anyone displaying it. Just another reason why he BCDB is such a great forum for fans of all animation ^_^
