Disclaimer: my anime ratings seem to be skewed towards the high end - this results from the fact that I always research everything I watch pretty carefully and make sure it is something I will enjoy.
The official list of anime/manga that I approve of:
- Battle Angel Alita/Gunnm manga
- Neon Genesis Evangelion original series
- End of Evangelion
- Serial Experiments Lain
- Haibane Renmei
- Now and Then, Here and There
