Your favorite animu?

What are your "essential" anime titles? Not necessarily your favorites, or classics, but must-sees? Overlooked gems, series(es) that influenced you?

Obviously taste plays a factor. Personally, just to share, I loved Outlaw Star and FLCL back in the day. I'm sure lots of people will cite Haruhi, Death Note, and Lucky Star...or classics like Love Hina, Cowboy Bebop, Macross, Golden Boy, etc.

Please recommend 3 titles that resonated with you. Pic related, I'm desperate to build my collection.
