That's my point; I get more then enough of that in real life, so I just can't handle large doses of it in my entertainment

Yeah, I know As**taka is fighting it, and the whole point of the movie is that people should move past those feelings of anger, but I still maintain that everybody is royally p**sed off through most of the movie. That's why my favorite character was the Monk, even though he was terribly immoral, at least he was cheerful about it.

I love anime these are my favorites.

Dragonball/Z. I hate the dubbing version!

The original Gundam. I think a day after 9/11 this was taken off the air.

Cyborg 009. Recently added.

Bio Boosting Armor Guyver. Only 12 episodes made but still one of my favorites

Pretty much anything made by the guy who did "Princess Monoke"

That's all I can come up with at the top of my head.

Why avoid the Evangelion movies?  They're thought provoking and visually stunning, and fit very well with the rest of the series.

Anything by Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli.

The entirety of Evangelion.  I actually shelled out $200 for a boxed set of this, that's the most I've spent on anything, ever.

Perfect Blue

Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade

Wings of Honneamise

Samurai X (The Rorouni Kenshin OVAs, four episodes.  Sooo..good..)

Serial Experiments Lain

Dominion Tank Police!

Hrm.  I've got more, but can't think of it off the top of my head.  I think this' a good start, though.

Everything else has probably been said.

Some of my favourite anime, in no particular order...

Vampire Hunter D - Loved his "sidekick"!
Captain Harlock - Still own a copy I've was bought whe I was 7!
Cyber City OEDO 808 - Very cool
Urotsukidoji - Legend of the Overfiend - very nasty
Project A-Ko - Superhuman schoolgirl action...with a bloody big space battle! Smashing!
The Guyver - 12 parts of bio-boosted warfare!
Streetfighter 2 - Anyone spotted Akuma sitting under a tree in India?
Doomed Megalopolis - Yasunori Kato is one of my fave bad guys!
Macross/Robotech - Transforming war machines and space battles, groovy!
Dragonball/Z/GT - Only problem I had was in GT and Vegeta's bad "Porn actors" moustache!
Tenchi Muyo! - How many girls fancied him? Lucky sod...
Armageddon - Nice theory of where we come from and why.
Urusei Yatsura! (Those obnoxious aliens!) - Just mad and all over the place, but I liked it!

But I can't stand Pokemon. Complete crap designed to sell a product, rather than a cartoon that inspired products to be made, the best slating I could give it has already been given in the Chinpokomon episode of South Park.

I think that my favorite Anime wether it be a movie/series would be in this order:

1. Chobits - Perfectly animated beautiful romantic scifi.  Bought an imported 3 DVD copy from Japan recently.

2. Vampire Hunter D - I hate the new one, but the orignal is a pure classic.   Fantastic story and also very well animated.

3. Angelic Layer - Don't know how many people have seen this, but it is great!  It's about fighting robots...but tiny robots.  You just have to see to understand.

4. Ghost In The Shell - Do I really have to say anything else?

Seems to be a big trend here but I have to go with Perfect Blue and Ghost in the Shell on principle.  Awesome stuff.  Ninja Scroll=a guilty pleasure as well.

Akira was good, but I've always thought that if it was just based around guys with motorcycles I would've enjoyed it more! :-p  Also although it was a enjoyable, I didn't think Spriggan was very good as a stand alone movie.  It just required too much knowledge of what was going on outside of the movie [ie the manga] and that just frustrated me to no end.  

The movie 'X' did that as well, and I also liked it but found it too much based on the comic.  Also 'Blood: The last vampire'' was pretty good but too short [45mins or so] to be really enjoyable; I kept waiting for something to happen after it finished, and when it didn't I almost started crying!

I guess that's why Akira and Ghost in the Shell stand out so much more: they can operate outside of their manga-based world, and stand on their own two feet.

Some big time favourites that haven't been mentioned yet are Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within [not sure whether it should be classed as Anime, but it's japanese so I'll count it!]  I thought it was fantastic and shouldn't have bombed as much as it did at the box office.

Another one is the Animatrix.  How could you possibly go wrong with pretty much every single legend animator\directors in the business.  I saw this at the cinemas before reloaded came out and couldn't help thinking ''f**k me, this is awesome''  I mean i could have come up with something more meaningful, I'm sure, but it kinda blew my mind.

In terms of Animated series [and movie spinoffs]  Neon Genesis is the be-all-end-all.  It is awesome!  Also Cowboy Bebop is pretty good, as well as Gunsmith Cats and Hellsing [crazy vamp that kills stuff]

Um..Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within was not from Japan.

>>>Um..Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within was not from Japan.

Still, pretty much everyone involved in it was japanese [behind the scenes that is] including the director and has many conventions of what would be considered Anime instead of a western animation, therefore I am still counting it.  Not to mention that alot of the content is Japaneseish in basis [The Gaia theory amongst others.]  And it's based on a Japanese game series.

When I watch a behind the scenes featurette that has pretty much every person as Japanese, I tend to think it's Japanese [Not to mention that the two main songs in the end were Japanese, or by Japanese, or in Japanese]

So you'd forgive me for thinking this was a Japanese-based movie!

It was written (for the screen) by Americans.  It was directed by two Japanese men.

All animation nowadays is done overseas anyway (I'm not talking key animation, but the actual animation itself), so that arguement is invalid.

It starred Americans.  This is not a Japanese movie, and is definitely not anime.  But this' just semantics anyway.
