Recomendation time. I've lurked a while, might as well try it.
Here's the thing. I haven't watched and liked a new anime since Gankustuou came out, whenever the hell that was. Here's what I'm planning to watch already:
Mononoke, Kaiji, and Akagi. Currently reading Vinland Saga as well.

Here's what I've seen/read and loved:
Death Note (so sue me)
Cowboy Bebop
Samurai Champloo
Kino's Journey
Paranoia Agent
Various Osamu Tezuka works
All of Miyazaki's films

Here's what I DON'T like:
Trigun (used to but now it's annoying), Gungrave, Gurren Langan, 99% of shonen, mecha, shojo, and comedy; Pumpkin Scissors, Black Lagoon. No interest in anything else by the guy who did Monster.

Sorry that's long list of stuff. Is there anything I haven't mentioned that I should check out?
