Aria: The setting is amazing and the characters are good too.
Evangelion movies: They are pretty good, don't really know how they compare to the series but they are good alone.

Itazura na Kiss - At first I didn't think I would like this Anime but after watching an episode or 2 I fell in love with it. One of my favorites for sure.

Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch R2
i'm inferring that you saw the first season of code geass. it's a great series so you should definitely finish it, i'd say it's even better than the first season! :D

Fullmetal Panic? Fumoffu - A great comedy series.

GITS 2nd GIG - An even better series than Stand Alone Complex, which is saying a lot.

My Neighbor Totoro - My favorite of Miyazaki's movies

Clannad- If you like cute moe anime and heartwarming drama, this is your show.

Durarara- Has some of the best characters (Shizuo, Izaya) EVAR.

Fullmetal Alchemist- The original series on it's own holds well (Even the early episodes are better done than their Brotherhood counterparts)

Higashi no eden- Complex but intruiging spy mystery.

Usagi Drop- Sweet little series.

Clannad After Story- Sad at some point, but definitely worth it.

Steins;Gate- Time traveling! Yay! Seriously. It's at first all fun and games, but it gets serious halfway.

Toradora- It's fun and games, except for the final conflict. Really funny though.

Angel Beats- One of the best anime I've watched. Seriously.

Kekkaishi- Although really long, I must admit that the animation is pretty good.

Ah! My Goddess!- Classic. Although it has average artstyle, because it's pretty old, the story is very intruiging.

Vandread- Epic. Action, girls, it's there.

Full Metal Panic: second Raid OVA: I liked that episode. Especially because Teletha's my favourite character on that show. But your enjoyment of this episode depends on your liking for Teletha.

Kaiji- asides from the pacing problems, this is sweet.
The Skull Man- I was the one to recommend this one. My only 10 on my list.
Beelzebub- this is pretty good, but they seem to be messing up with fillers, or so I heard.

@kickthebucket
Damn, I don't know 99% of these o.O

Lovely Complex was OK. Maybe a bit overrated.
Monster- just watch this. Great thriller, but a bit predictable...
Princess Mononoke- Miyazaki, what else?
Trigun- subtly changes from a comedy/action to a drama/action masterpiece

Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu Ni! - Continuation of an epic anime.
Minami-ke - Great comedy.
Kamisama Dolls - Only starting this one but I definitely recommend it.

That was a really hard one since you already watched most of the anime I did xD

Although I've never seen any of your PTW anime, I have heard many good remarks about Ouran Host so if you take the opinions of others into consideration, you might want to give that a spin.

@Angel_Beats even though he posted quite a few times

The Clannad Movie was pretty interesting and a good ending if you didn't like After Story's ending.

Full Metal Panic Fumoffu? and The Second Raid were great watches so if you enjoyed Full Metal Panic S1 have at it.

Kaminomi's Yonin no Idol is short so go ahead.

Minami-ke is one of the better slice of life comedies imo.

Shakugan no Shana 3 is a high priority watch at the moment although if you're the type that likes to watch anime in bulk, wait until it's completed.

Tsubasa Chronicle from what I remember was a great spin on Cardcaptor Sakura even though it's an entirely new anime world and has no relation to CCS's plot.

Steins;Gate. Definitely one of the better anime this year, and perhaps my all time favourite. Either way, really something I recommend watching soon.

I've heard good things about Aria, but haven't actually watched that myself so I can't really recommend it. I do plan watching it very soon though.

The Place Promised in Our Early Days- great film, and if you liked Shinkai's other work you should enjoy it

Natsume series- awesome slice of life series with great characters.

Usagi Drop- another awesome and heart warming slice of life (and it's only 11 episodes).

You also have One Outs, Shiki, Voices of a Distant Star, Haruhi movie and many other great anime on your list.

steins;gate but the person above me already recommended that to you. shakugan no shana is another good choice seeing that the last of the series is airing this season. lots of action and drama/romance if you're in to that kind of anime.

@TowardTheStars

You seem to have you eye on some pretty good stuff; I don't think there's anything on your PTW that I wouldn't recommend (unless I haven't seen it). That said, the list of anime I would recommend the most would go as follows:

Mawaru Penguindrum- Could be my favorite anime of 2011 so far (that's a tall order considering we got Madoka Magica and Steins; Gate, another you should watch, this year). This gets my biggest recommendation, although I could be biased by the fact that is the show I'm watching right now, nevertheless, very though provoking.

Anything Miyazaki is a must watch. Don't ignore Castle in the Sky, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, or Nausiscaa

There is no way you won't enjoy Kaiji or Eden of The East. If anything they are at least, very fun.

Serial Experiments Lain, Akira, and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei are pretty good, but you need to be in the right frame of mind to enjoy it properly. (Save these for when you feel artsy-fartsy)

@Angel_Beats

That first episode of Mirai Nikki was pretty Boss. Check it out.

Watch Penguindrum. I cannot get tired of recommending this to anyone. Mystery, intrigue, comedy, romance, symbolism, allusion, penguins, suspense, danger, penguins, randomness (but in a deliberate way), and penguins, this anime has it all.

Kara no Kyoukai 5 is the best one, don't miss it.

FLCL is my all-time favorite; it goes without mention that I would recommend it. What's cool about this anime is that you can enjoy it at almost any level. It could be a really deep story about puberty, coming of age, etc..., or it can be about robots hitting each other in the face.

Welcome to the NHK is a brilliant, brilliant dark comedy with a loveable cast of nutcases and strong social commentary.

Mawaru Penguindrum is the best currently airing anime right now, I definitely suggest watching it.

Kimi ni Todoke 2nd Season: Since you've already seen the first season, you definitely should check this season out. Things wrap up in this season. Sawako is her same awkward self. :P

Natsume Yuujinchou: Ohmygosh, this show is a masterpiece. I bet you, one episode and you will be hooked.

My Neighbor Totoro: A classic. I'm kinda surprised you've never seen this before - it's a touching story.

Wolf's Rain: The plot is unique. You'll be on the edge of your seat when you watch this show! :D

MAL says we have a "Very High" compatibility. That means that my suggestions are mathematically more likely to agree with you.

Watch Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei; at the very least, I can say you have never seen anything like it before. It's got the manic energy of FLCL and an eye for color and composition befitting any work by Shaft or Akiyuki Shinbou.

@gigglingidiot
You have a lot of good stuff here; it would almost be easier to say what you shouldn't watch, but that's cheating.

Anime that stands out includes:

-Death Note (it's just very surprising to see such a popular anime on someone's PTW). The show itself is worth a look. It isn't very deep but the execution is near flawless, if you ignore the slightly less good late episodes.

-Haruhi (see Death Note). The only fault I can give this show is the Endless Eight (but you can just turn that into the Endless Four and you would still get the gist of it, and besides, the movie kind of validates Endless Eight out of how amazing it is).

- NHK: This is something of a must-watch. I command you to watch it.

-Beck: This will remind you of the power of youth, dedication, and taking the future and putting in your hands.

-Gurren Lagann: If Beck is dedication, then Gurren Lagann is passion. Every frame of this anime is dripping with it and damned if it isn't contagious.

@ Angel_Beats :

Natsume Yuujinchou - Definitely a great watch. I first started the series around two years ago and just kind of stopped watching after 2 episodes for no apparent reason and recently picked it back up again since a new season came out and I figured that it had to be good for all three seasons to rank so high. It kind of dies down when you get to the next two seasons, but in my opinion I thought that this had a really genuine feel about it and it was also a really relaxing watch.

Ookiku Furikabutte - Ah Oofuri. How many times have I rewatched this? ... Probably only once, regardless, I thought that it was an amazing series. I've never been much of a fan of watching sports, but I always found every episode to be fairly exciting and it never really left you bored.
