Also, Gantz is the worst translation of a *good* manga to anime I've ever seen. It has more standing still and talking than Yugioh and DBZ combined!
*Edit I finished Gantz. And yup, pretty pissed off. Its bad that I enjoyed the last 4 filler episodes better than their *adaptation* of the canon manga. Its like the same thing that happened with Hellsing. Just goes off on some stupid tangent to try to bring closure to a story that just fucking started.
The latest volume of Hellsing released is hilarious too. It's an entire volume of a fight between Alucard and Alexander. Nothing plot-wise really happens in it. And it took, what, 2 years to come out?
But the Hellsing Ultimate OVAs are spectacular.
In general, the definitive anime are Cowboy Bebop, Akira, Azumanga Daioh, any Miyazaki film, and Evangelion.
Feel free to expand on your own though.
edit: the Deathnote manga is fantastic. The couple of volumes leading to the end were pretty slow but HOLY SHIT what an ending. Funny thing is, you can spoiler-but-not-really it by saying "The hero wins"... After all, who the hero in the story is is up to interpretation.
