Dear /a/,

I swear to you that I'm not a troll. Let me say that first.

I used to be a big anime fan, but was never able to watch anything beyond what was shown on Cartoon Network due to lack of money and having dial up internet. This has changed now and I've decided that I want to get back into anime. The last series I watched was FLCL back in 2003 when Adult Swim aired it. After that, school took over much of my time and I fell out of the loop. I've seen a few episodes of various shows here and there, but I haven't really been into anything since.

Now, my roommate has two full series on DVD. I simply wanted to ask you for a recommendation of what I should watch first.

tl;dr: Fullmetal Alchemist or Tengen Toppa Gurren Laggan?
