I used to be fairly into anime years ago, it started when I watched Akira and Ghost in the Shell, then shows like Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, and I'd been a big fan of Ghibli. I used to watch quite a bit years ago, but stopped watching it after I had a harddrive crash and lost my little collection. I'd still keep up with some anime movies, Ghibli or Satoshi Kon's stuff, but that was about it.
Then sometime last year, a friend introduced me to Attack on Titan.

Holy crap, I was impressed! It was one of the only shows I'd actually keep up to date with while it was still airing, I didn't even do that when watching Breaking Bad, I waited until the 5th season was over then watched the whole season over a weekend. But for Attack on Titan, I couldn't wait!
Watched a good few shows since then, Steins;Gate and Monster were two of the best things I've ever seen! I've even got my girlfriend into anime now too, she absolutely loved Death Note, Tiger & Bunny and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Currently, we've just started watching Fate/Zero and I'm half way through watching Ergo Proxy.
Anyone else watch a bit of anime? Any recommendations?
Attack on Titan is awesome, and I can't wait for more. The first season had me constantly stumbling over my own expectations. Lots of "WTF JUST FUCKING HAPPENED" going down, for sure.
I like Gundam, too. Like, a lot. Somebody* over here is supposed to make a thread about it, but he has bitched out due to inevitable .
*Dont make me give you a 4ARM to the face, bro.
