Anime

Lets say hypothetically there was this guy, and this guy always hated anime. Lets also say that this guy has never actually watched anime before, so he doesn't actually know if he hates it or not. What would be a good place to start if this guy wanted to try it out?

Second Hellsing.

Ninja Scroll (dubbed). Be amused as the familiar voice of Lion-O struggles against the evil tentacled machinations of a pussy snake.

With a similar vibe - behold the sweary outtakes of the Thundercats voice artists...

I know what you are doing. You are trying to get us nerds to out ourselves, so that Keith can tell us to untuck our shirts and make fun of our schlurps.

Oh but, anime!

I'm not a huge fan of the genre, but I've been exposed to "Cowboy Bebop" and "Ghost In the Shell"

Both have feature length movies and a TV series. Both are available on your favorite torrent site.

+1 on Ninja Scroll
also consider Gundam the early series like 0080 0083 etc...
Grave of the fireflies it's a sad story
Street Figher is good too

Avoid
Akira (I dont care what ppl say this shit makes no sense)
Dragonball Z went on way to long and the story makes no sense

Ninja Scroll is definitely a good way to go
I would also recommend Cowboy Bebop, Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Blood the Last Vampire, Demon City Shinjuku... I like Miyazaki films but that might be too girly for ya, though if you respect the environment you may like Princess Mononoke.

Avoid things like Bleach, Naruto, probably Sailor Moon, and other such lame series.

I've been completely irritated by most Anime I've seen. I especially hate the bad redubbing of dialogue.

I did enjoy Grave of the Fireflies, but even it must be watched in Japanese with subtitles or the bad sound and dialogue make it unwatchable. It's an anti-war film about two children experiencing the firebombing of Tokyo during ww2.

If you're making recommendations here, let us know why you like it, how much pot you smoke, if you have hair down there, and if you are one of the people who think Batman is the greatest movie of all time. I'd be willing to check out others if I thought they were going to be worth the time.
