Do I have to explain myself?

My exposure to anime has been what TV has offered hereabouts, and judging from that it's about badly drawn teenage japanese girls with too-big eyes, regardless if it's afternoon- or night-programming.

If you can recommend stuff to leech that might alter that conclusion, go ahead.

(And WTF is VR-5?)

Ah, it sounds like you've only seen things like Sailor Moon. :-) Which has it's appeal, mainly the Lolita factor, but is still kind of lame.

On the movies side, what springs to mind is Wings of Honneamise, Perfect Blue, Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' On Heaven's Door (aka The Movie), and Ghost in the Shell.

For TV series the first things to come to mind are Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, and Full Metal Alchemist.

But there are many other good shows - those are all fairly recent, so the visual quality is high. There ar some older shows which are still good, like the original Macross, which just don't look as good due to the older techniques.

You can also scan my collection and ask me about anything that sounds interesting.

Tokyo Godfathers is probably worth mentioning too. It's a Christmas story, so expect what you'd expect from that kind of thing.

Oh, and VR-5 was a rancid, hideous, terrible 'sci-fi' TV series from several years back. I think it was on The SciFi channel, or maybe WB or UPN or something. The concept was so *dumb* it is hard to describe...

Basically lead woman has some kind of magical VR system that lets her enter the mind of a person she calls on the phone... Yes, it was that bad.
