I'm really bored and I know there's a lot of Anime nerds out here who have seen live 414514354 series. I want to watch a series and I'm not too picky about which type it is.

I do like it to be funny (not too serious), and a good watch overall.

I seen:


Bleach
Naruto
Death Note
School Rumble
Ai Yori Aoishi
Shuffle!


So, prescribe me a drug to fill my anime need.

COWBOY BEBOP.

COWBOY BEBOP.

And, in case it didn't register with you the first two times:

COWBOY BEBOP.

It will blow your mind away. Be sure to watch it in English, as it has perhaps the best English dub ever. I've yet to meet someone who didn't like Cowboy Bebop.

Pandora Hearts is great once you get into it and get half way through the first series. There are also some very witty personalities you can't help but to be keen on. Google it and watch a few episodes. Although compared to your afore mentioned anime's I would say it's maybe a little more mature and the style is vintage anime, with lesser laughs than the one's you've seen, I would recommened anyone who likes anime to watch it regardless!

Fullmetal Alchemist is pretty good, and it could have it's funny moments =D

I only watched a couple episodes, but FLCL is a great one. The art has this weird but cool style, the music is great, and also the characters are quite fun. Also, it's very funny, even when there are some breaking the fourth wall moments.

I did start of Soul Eater, but I never finished. I look to finish the series later on.

It looks like I'll watch Fullmetal Alchemist. I've heard a lot about it and you guys seem to enjoy it so I guess I'll give it a shot.

I didn't like the dub as much as the sub, though I will admit it was better than most. As usual, I recommend watching it in whatever language you prefer. :/

Also, I personally recommend Hellsing. It's like the essence of awesome in anime form.

Code Geass is the one you're missing ;)

Sure, if you want a boring and slow storyline, terrible character designs and a neverending stream of Pizza Hut ads.

Watch K-ON!. You'll be better for it.

And nobody has mentioned Gurren Lagann yet?
You watch Naruto and Bleach but not Gurren Lagann?!!!

It's funny, action packed, and so epic that it literally defies logic and does the impossible.

"JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM!!!"

"Go Beyond The Impossible, and kick reason to the curb! That's the Team Gurren way!"

"Don't believe in yourself! Believe in me, who believes in you!"

If you like Naruto and Bleach, this anime will blow you out the water and kick your ass back in there.

Seriously, check it out.

-Fullmetal Alchemist DUB
I'd say, the dub is superb. I like watching RAWs and SUBs, but the first anime's dub is excellent. There are jokes that don't exist in the Japanese original, and the voice actors got it spot on. :D
I just LOOOVVVVVEEEEE Armstrong's voice~!

-Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
Since it isn't dubbed yet.
The first half wasn't that good because it's too fast and the jokes were kinda forced, but when LIIIIINNNNGGGG came, the show turned upside-down and epic.
I WANT MAI LIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGG YYYYYAAAAAAOOOO.

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
This may offend some people here, but don't bother watching the 2003 anime. It doesn't follow the manga, while Brotherhood does and seems to be getting far superior even 24 episodes through.

Gurren Lagann
You must watch this. In fact, just about everyone on the planet needs to watch this in one point of their lives. It's an amazingly uplifting series, with action sequences that put Hollywood to shame and lovable main characters. Fantastic animation.

Clannad
Another absolute masterpiece. This series could make you cry a lot later on. Love the characters also. Again, fantastic animation.

Toradora
If you like romance even a little bit, this is a must-watch. Basically the great anime equivalent of the chick-flick romcom.

Clannad
Another absolute masterpiece. This series could make you cry a lot later on. Love the characters also. Again, fantastic animation.
I back this recommendation (then again, I'd recommend Clannad to everyone from elderly to 8 year olds -punched-). It's very funny and whimsical earlier on, and still has its humorous touches later on. Clannad's story will actually intrigue you; I don't think you'll mind the seriousness too much once you get deep into the whole story. Yes, it's a huge tearjerker, but it's also heartwarming, and funny at times too.

3 words. Law. Of. Ueki.

Oh, and as you see in my sig, watch Case Closed. In fact, I can sum up the plot to you and you decide:
FROM EPISODE 2 OPENING:

My name's Jimmy/Shinichi Kudo, and I've always wanted to be a great detective. Over the years I've worked at perfecting the craft and pressed almost everyone. Except maybe Rachel/Ran. But then some bad guys ambushed me, slipping me some kind of poison that was supposed to kill me, but just shrunk me down to a child. Now what I'm I going to do...

And, where's One Piece, just wondering.

And if you like sports mangas, trust me, Eyeshield 21 is the only one that manages to cross decent.

Phantom : A young man regains consciousness in an unfamiliar room with no memory of who he is or how he got there. His past is lost - and his future belongs to Inferno, a violent crime syndicate that’s waging bloody war on the mafia underground. The organization gives him a new name - Zwei - and teams him with their top assassin, the enigmatic Ein. They call her "Phantom", and she'll teach Zwei all he needs to know about his new life as an Inferno operative, starting with lesson number one: kill or be killed.

Give Clannad/After Story and Ah my Goddess a try. I'd recommend more, but many of my favorites are less humorous.

This. Watch TTGL. Do it.

And also, you should look into Trigun.
