Well, off the top of my head.


Another Miyazaki film is My Neighbor Totoro.


Outlaw Star is kinda like Cowboy Bebop. Both are space action shows with bounty hunter/wiseass characters in charge. It is available in three 2-DVD sets or as a box set with all three sets together. From Bandai.


I've read Sorcerer Hunters is pretty good and entertaining if you like Those Who Hunt Elves. It's on four DVDs from ADV.


Metropolis is always a good movie to pick up.


Neon Genesis Evangelion is a personal favorite. But this is just a plug for my show! 8 DVDs or as the Perfect Collection box set from ADV.


I hope this helps a bit.

Hey, no prob! I'm glad I can help out a girlfriend shopping for her boyfriend. My girl does not know where to begin at all, and really has no interest in anime or transformers (as my name indicates), so knowing there are girls out there who are interested is very cool.


Disclaimer: I'm not trashing my girl at all, so if she read this, she can't kick my ass. You're awesome, honey. Don't hurt me.....:lol: :lol: :lol:

i've finally decided to buy him Boogiebop Phantom, according to many reviews the movie is great, great mecha, well done plot.....and since he's not going after any series that look like Cowboy Bebop this time, i'm getting Boogiebop.


oh, and i discovered that he's buying me the DVD set of Serial Experiments Lain :)- :)- .......my personal favorite! :D
