    Several anime have made extra special impressions on me.

    Story: Blood+

    Beautiful art: The Time Promised In Our Early Days

    Sexy girls: High School Of The Dead

    The artwork of Blood+ could be described as naive at best. In fact, it bothered me at first since my first exposure was with well drawn animes like Cowboy Bebop (another fave), but as time went by and I got into the characters, the art stopped bothering me and it all became about the story line.

    The Time Promised In Our Early Days has so many beautiful scenes in it. Frames and sequences that belong in an art museum. The story is dense and difficult to follow. In fact, I'm not sure I could explain it even in broad strokes. But perhaps that's at least in part due to being distracted by the gorgeous animation.

    High School Of The Dead is basically about a group of high school teens running away from zombies. I never thought a cartoon could give me a hard on, but the girls in this anime are very well drawn and we frequently get gratuitous upskirt views of the girls, all of whom seem to have gigantic breasts and the tiniest of waists. 

    Advice on similar animes I might enjoy appreciated.

      I'm not very good at picking favourites, but a couple that stand out in my mind at the moment:

      I really got into Ergo Proxy at one point, largely because of the world in which it takes place.

      For visuals, Tekkonkinkreet is probably the movie which left the strongest impact on me, and it's hard not to like Shiro as a character. Miyazaki/ Ghibli films also rank well -- there's a reason so many people add them as favourites even amongst those who aren't that into animation --, but somehow Tekkon still stands out.

        Anime has been such a large part of my life for so long, it's very difficult to choose. But the series I thought of when I saw this thread is Last Exile. I'm talking about the original, although Fam has it's merits. I watched it with my brothers on TechTV, the channel that would later merge with G4, about 10 years ago. I could go on and on about it.
