Are you looking for exclusively a series or films as well? There's not a whole lot of series I consider particularly WHOA AMAZING so I'll offer both.

Movies:
Perfect Blue. (Has sexual assault references so it might not be appropriate for everyone)
Steam Boy.
Ghost in the shell and Ghost in the Shell:Innocence.
Kiki's Delivery Service
Princess Monoke
Lupin the 3rd, pretty much any of them.

Series:
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Gintama
Umineko No Naku Koro Ni
Lupin the 3rd
Tenchi Muyo
Ruroni Kenshin
Sailor Moon
Paranoia Agent

[QUOTE=ArdentTenue;4609130]Death Note (best anime ever.)[/QUOTE]

Nope.

Cowboy Bebop
Galaxy Express 999
Vampire Hunter D
Ninja Scroll
Tenchi Muyo
Trigun
One of the Gundam series, probably
FullMetal Alchemist
Some Dragonball Z and Sailor Moon is essential
Anything by Miyazaki

I'll limit to just 5:

Texnolyze (think a more thoughtful deathnote)
Now and then, Here and there (full of emotional punch due to paralells to man's inhumanity)
Paranoia Agent (hard to think of a better 13 part series)
Utena Series (a must see for fans of symbolism)
Berserk Manga (the most violence you can pack on a manga page and still going strong 25 years later)

That's Sam, Sam likes to be a butt head occasionally but deep down he's a good person.[/QUOTE]

I protest! My goodness floats gently on the surface for all to see. I am a paragon of virtue!

He means nothing by his comments but being funny and giving us laughs.[/quote]
