Avoid One Piece, Bleech, and Naruto. a) Those are a bit childish b) They are long, One Piece is already twice as long as DBZ with no end in sight.

That's the best part of it :)

DONT avoid One Piece, it's simply amazing. Seriously. My mind was blown way too many times and my feelings were a goddamn rollercoaster during the 3 weeks that took me to watch all 400 episodes (vacation rocks)that were released at the time. So many awesome things... 

Also, read the manga, it's wayy better than the anime (which is so good already). Oda's drawing later on became quite beautiful.

I agree.  I LOVE OP.  It took about 20 eps for me to really get into it, but once I got reeled in, there was no looking back.

Why is the manga so good? isnt it just like a comic?

It's the perfect blend of comedy, action, creativity and characterization.  Most Shounen manga gets stagnant and repetitive after a while, but OP, at least for me, has been the exception.  I also like the fact that Oda does a lot of research and incorporates mythos from other cultures into his storylines.  The manga's been out since 1997 and yet there's still a ton of material to explore and major revealations yet to come.

Damn I hate spoilers!!! I was doing some research on some of the anime and read comments about them only to have people spoil the plot!! damn you internet!!

My advice is pick 1 or 2 anime's and watch them. If you like them see what others have recommended.

This one guy on youtube Anime Zone - gigguk. I tend to agree with his reviews 9/10 times. He's also reviewed most of the better anime's IMO, and the video's themselves are kinda funny. At 5-10 minutes each, they give you a good sense of the quality of the anime without spoiling anything. I'll try to embed the code, the video below is Death Note's review

What do you think about the Anime Zone review then?

What exact spoiler did you read? If it's about the end, it's not really a spoiler, it's a fairly obvious conclusion.

BTW, I'm not sure if people recommended this as it's a fiarly new Anime, but Baccanno! - It's....wow, it's f***ing good, it's about the lives of Immortal people who can only be killed by each other.

You know, he gave that anime a bad score, but in all honestly, it was f**king great. I mean it's not a traditional anime, it was just a "pocorn flick", but it was so damn good and funny. So much just didn't make sense, but who cares?

Avoid anime all together and save yourself from wasting a lot of time for no reason at all.
