Re: Japanese Anime

It depends on what generes you are most interested in. Anime is an entire medium so it has any genre under the sun you could want.

For starters I'll just mention a few of my personal favorites.

Monster- (medical/crime drama, mystery, action)
Planetes (science fiction, romance)
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (Science fiction, police drama)
Haibane Renmei (Drama, mustery, slice of life)
Rumbling Hearts (romantic drama)
Kurenai (martial arts, comedy, slice of life)
When They Cry (Higurashi no Naku Koroni) (supernatural, horror, mystery)
REC (romance, comedy)
Welcome to the NHK (drama, comedy, romance)
Baccano (action, comedy)
Kanon (2006) (drama, comedy)
Ergo Proxy (science fiction)
Rideback (science fiction, mecha)
Kemonozume (action, romance)
Cowboy Bebop (science fiction, action)
BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad (music, slice of life, romance)
Infinite Ryvius (science fiction)
Blue Gender (science fiction, horror)
Real Drive (science fiction)
Aquarian Age (supernatural, action)

As for some currently airing ones, I'm following:

A Certain Scientific Railgun S (Not recommended unless you've seen the first Railgun series)
Attack on Titan
Majestic Prince
Photo Kano
Red Data Girl

Samurai Bride (Not recommended unless you've watched Samurai Girls)
Space Battleship Yamato 2199
Space Brothers

Most of these can be found here or here streaming legally.
