Been around since the Arrow Pointing Down days. I loved Jeff, Ryan, and the rest of the guys on Gamespot. After they left though, I went with them. Haven't been back to GS since. How To Build A Bomb Ep. 1 was the first video I saw of them after Jeffs firing.
Cowboy Bebop is a great anime to see for someone who isn't all that into anime. On the other end of the spectrum, for a total mind fuck, I suggest FLCL (Fooly Cooly). Just be prepared for off the wall weirdness with that one. Also, FLCL is only six episodes long. Not much of a time commitment to watch it, which is great. Honorable mention: Gurren Lagann.
