Macross Zero has some damn nice animations & cgi.
Last Exile is a great series.

reason: loved the old TMNT and the latest ones look really cool ;)

I should add: I hate "anime faces" with a passion. There is nothing more annoying than watching some great action scene with heads getting chopped off while blood and gore spills everywhere, then 5 seconds later some girl makes a comment and the hero makes this stupid distorted face while screaming or doing something else stupid.
Kenshin, Inuyasha, and Full-Metal Alchemist would be so much better if they didn't have that crap.
PS: I didn't fit the word stupid in there enough so: stupid stupid stupid.
Berserk - This guy has a bad attitude and a big sword but the story isn't all hack and slash. Lots of emphasis on fate, dreams, and the lengths people will go to fulfill them.
Cowboy Bebop - Great characters, great stories, and a ton of style. A series about bounty hunters in space.
Escaflowne (series and movie) - Japanese schoolgirls are always getting into the strangest predicaments and this story makes no exception. Somehow there is a massive celestial body near earth that we never knew about and there are people there who still rely on animals for transportation but are somehow able to build giant mechs.
Macross Plus (movie or OVA) - It's about artificial intelligence, Japanese pop music, and test pilots who fly airplanes that are actually robots in disguise. It also shows how we should be weary of computers because they will strangle us with power cables!
Rurouni Kenshin OVA (the first one) - Beautiful music and a touching if violent retelling of Kenshin's earlier years. The OVA has different character designs from the series and has the advantage of being a drama instead of a "fighting anime." It is far more realistic than the television series. This should really be watched AFTER the TV series.
Azumanga Daioh - A series of cute stories involving high school girls. It's funny.
Full Metal Alchemist - The Japanese try to follow the first law of thermodynamics but seem to be violating it for about 50 episodes before they try to make up an explanation.
Gun Grave - Zombies and the mafia? It's nowhere near as bad as it may sound.
Record (oops) of Lodoss War OVA - It's fantasy and it's pretty good.
Rurouni Kenshin TV series - The story of an assassin trying to live and atone after the Meiji revolution. Lots of fighting and many philosophical arguments as well as some silly comedy. The real story ends somewhere around episode 62. All of the episodes after that point are not really worth watching and were not a part of the original story.
Scrapped Princess - A decent story with decent characters and some nice plot twists.
Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.
