Don't haze! Really, the first "anime" I've seen was probably Pokémon... a while ago, meaning years ago. Not too long ago, my work schedule had me staying up all hours of the night and I was able to catch some programming, specifically Bleach (new) and Fullmetal Alchemist (again).

Bleach intrigued me because the point I caught it in featured a different character or two for a couple episodes at a time. I didn't even know what it was called until I'd seen 4 episodes (never caught the beginning). I like it for the fight scenes, stories of friendship, bouts of quirkiness, and even sad/deep moments.

I found a site where I downloaded all the episodes and have seen it from start to finish in Japanese. I know much prefer to see subbed rather than dubbed anime. While it doesn't look as silly as live action movies, I felt the voices were off and have found that the subbed lines may be completely reworked to try to fit the targeted viewers rather than the original intention... poor Hitsugaya-teichou, he's been belittled the most.

I really couldn't watch just that series over and over, I do have limits. But it did inspire me to try to find more anime to watch. It's why I joined Anime-Planet, I like the recommendation database.

But I'm probably not the best anime fan. I'm not into the cutesy ones. Romance is ok, but I'd prefer it as a subplot, not main idea. Robot/futuristic(mecha) doesn't seem appealing yet. Animated or not, samurai stuff interests me. Drama/tragedy should be ok. And definitely, anything that can poke fun at itself. Suggest away!

Hmm, So all I can really think from that would be like Shura no Toki, Basilisk, and Ninja Scroll (TV), Samurai 7.

Funny/Silly, I like those as well, FLCL, Azumanga Daioh, Excel Saga, FMP: Fumoffu, School Rumble, are my top favorites. 

I don't know if you've seen them or not but they're pretty good

Yeah Soul Society was the best..the surprise of what Bankai is, awaiting for Ichigo's bankai, hollow taking him over...as for now i think Kubo exploited all ideas :/ There's nothing new in manga either. Bleach is now concentrated only on Ichigo vs xxxx
