Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Aria and Area 88 were all shows I watched on /tg/ recommendation, all of them were awesome in different ways. Although the LoGH spin-offs were kind of pointless, and with Area 88 the OVA is vastly superior to the later TV show.

I've kind of gone off most recent anime, but a few good ones I'd recommend:

1) Hellsing Ultimate - Still slowly coming out, much better than the older Hellsing series. Watch this one in English it's loads better.
2) Cowboy Bebop - Everyone will tell you to watch this.
3) Black Lagoon - Once again stylish and violent. Modern crime shenanigans.
4) Baccano - Prohibition era hijinks, story may seem disjointed, but ultimately is really good and worth the watch. Watch this one in English, the accents make it that much better.
5) Tengen Toppa Gurren Laggann - Are you AWESOME?! Do you like GIANT ROBOTS?! If not watch this and you will be both. No description can really give it justice.

I'm gonna leave it at that, really. I've watched a fair bit of good stuff and a fair bit of bad stuff. Two things I hate above all else:

1) Story? What story? LOOK AT THE BEWBS!
2) Anything whose description starts with "It's a slice of life anime" There are a few rare exceptions, but a lot of them made my eyes bleed.

Hope this helps.

im personally liking log horizon at the moment, but its probably not for everyone

the basics are that members of an online game one day wake up to find that they've been transported to a world pretty similar to the game (not trapped in the game, physically transported to a new world)

theres also a tabletop game coming out fairly soon (in japan) that im hoping gets translated

It is funny watching people talk about 'dropping' it already, or anything else really.

Disclaimer: Don't look under this spoiler if you think like /a/.

I'd suggest Sword Art Online, another in the trapped-in-mmo genre. Lot of stress and people freaking out. Main guy suffers from being a loner and a fair bit a psychological damage along the way. Yes, the second season is not as good as the first, and /a/ also hates characters that are better than the average person. Also completely subverts and avoids most typical anime bullshit in the romance. Some people hate this show, and /a/ hates it with an unmatched passion. If they doesn't sell you on it, if you like Log Horizion and .hack or simalar things, you might enjoy it. If you like fun and don't mind powerful characters, you might like it. And yes, the author did write an unofficial fap-chapter that is not canon and yes glop is the Japanese onomatopoeia for the sound they think that makes. ..They did rush through the plot with time skips in the first season just to tell that 'arc' in one season though, and the second season is drawn out and less interesting since it was a shorter 'arc'.

My issue is that it feels like every show now has to have a harem element and no clear cut answer. It's why I really liked sword art season one. But then season two the slight hints of a possible harem that were rejected come back in full force.

I loved stuff like outlaw star where yeah it could he a harem but if the other women really do feel anything for gene it's hard to tell.

Lemme pull up my recommendation list.

-Cowboy Bebop
-JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
-Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (NOT the other anime adaptation.)
-Baccano and Durarara (technically in the same universe.)
-Black Lagoon
-Monster
-G Gundam
-Samurai Champloo
-Rurouni Kenshin (up to a certain arc)
-Yu Yu Hakusho
-Fate/Zero
-Dragonball and Z, but only Kai for the latter, and if you didn't grow up with it you'll probably dislike it.
-Death Note (not great, but decent.)
-Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
-Big O
-Ouran High School Host Club
-Sword of the Stranger (a movie, but a damn good one if you like fight scenes.)

Those are just the ones off the top of my head that come to mind.

ANTI-Recommendation list
-Fullmetal Alchemist, the original adaptation from 2003. It's just an inferior anime overall, and the story takes a turn into so much pointless angst and grimderp that not even the stellar English dub can save it.
-Jormungand. Overrated and chock-full of every anime cliche you can imagine. It's a poor-man's Black Lagoon.
-Evangelion. It's a nice character study, and for the development of anime as a whole it was important. But in comparison to what's come out since it's release it just doesn't hold up anymore.

Hyperdimension Netunia (Amusement was had, I believe I was drinking as well at the time)
Attack on Titan (Don't get attached to people in this show.)
Accel World (Fun. Digital world stuff. Main characters do grow as people)
Sword Art Online (Nice and fighty trapped-in-VR thing, determination and yelling happens. MC is derp level not working with others or getting help, but very protective of people.)
Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero (shit I forgot I hadn't finished that one, I remember it was fun and I likes the world setup)
Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan (glad I'm going back through these, another I need to finish up, also recall liking it and characters)
Legend of the Legendary Heroes (Enjoyed, but not sure I could recommend since it never got further seasons, leaving me with unresolved-plot blue-balls.)

Not that guy, but I hated Code Geass.

Dude, his disregard for females was his whole appeal to them in SAO, he treated them like everyone else in a world full of MMO players with more males than females hitting on them all the time. The fact that they then respected the other woman and left him be, and that he never had bullshit string-along indecision kept it firmly out of the harem bullshit.

Just because everyone is evil doesn't mean that they can't also be good characters.

What I am basically saying is that stories in which everyone is a shade of black can still be narratively fulfilling. Even more so with Code Geass because the main character is unambiguously evil, but if his plan succeeds then the world *will* become a better place.

Evangelion's a bit too blunt though, I mean holy fuck; they slather Judeo-Christian references on that shit like it's nutella on toast yet we're supposed to not take them as religious references?

Like, it's at the point where I'm completely bamboozled at times trying to mentally convince myself the angels are not meant to literally be angels, but rather aliens that are called angels for reasons.

just because it's about as subtle as your average tornado in a card house doesn't mean it's actually trying to say anything at every turn. Anno outright admitted using symbols etc for shits and giggles. I'm not calling it symbolism, because most of the time it isn't (We DO have symbolism in the show too though. Like I remember an early episode when shinji was going to the bath and I think freaking out over the penguin or something and he appears buck naked in the door way. Then Misato removes a strategically placed beer can to reveal a strategically placed jar of tooth picks. That's the level that the symbolism in Evangelion is at folks.)

Eren Jaeger waited. The lights above him blinked and sparked out of the air. There were Titans in the Wall. He didn’t see them, but had expected them now for years. His warnings to Cernel Erwin were not listenend to and now it was too late. Far too late for now, anyway.
Eren was a survey corps for three years. When he was young he watched the daddy leave and he said to dad “I want to be on the basement daddy.”
Dad said “No! You will BE KILL BY TITANS”
There was a time when he believed him. Then as he got oldered he stopped. But now in the Trost distict of Wall Rose he knew there were Titans.
“This is Erwin” the green smoke crackered. “You must fight the Titans!”
So Eren gotted his manuver gear and flew up the wall.
“HE GOING TO KILL US” said the Titans
“I will bite at him” said the titan and he ate the Tom. Eren stabed at him and tried to cut him up. But then the beerd titan bite and they were trapped and not able to kill.
“No! I must kill the Titans” he shouted
The smoke said “No Eren. You are the Titans”
And then Eren was a Titan.
