    Here's how I'd rank what I've seen from this list:

    Excellent (must see):

    AnoHana

    Full Metal Alchemist (Brotherhood is better than the 03/04 series)

    NANA

    Sakamichi no Apollon (it's an ongoing series, so rank is based only on what's aired so far)

    Great (you'd be missing out on something amazing if you didn't watch):

    Hanasaku Iroha

    Baccano

    Bakuman

    Beck

    Clannad

    Code Geass

    Kimi ni Todoke

    Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

    Natsume Yuujinchou

    Nichijou

    Very good (just a step below great, but still really enjoyable and totally worth your time):

    Angel Beats

    Durarara

    Gosick

    Hell Girl

    Higashi no Eden

    Hourou Musuko

    K-ON!!

    Azumanga Daioh

    Lucky Star

    OreImo

    Paradise Kiss

    Rozen Maiden

    Strawberry Marshmallow

    The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

    Welcome to the NHK

    Kimi to Boku (first season really belongs in "good," this placement is due to the much better second season)

    Good (not anything too special, but worth watching):

    A-Channel

    Ano Natsu de Matteru

    Ao No Exorcist

    Baka to Test to Shokanjuu

    Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou

    Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko

    Kaichou wa Maid-sama

    Kobato

    Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai!

    Rec

    Recorder to Randoseru

    Romeo x Juliet

    Shugo Chara

    So Ra No Wo To

    Tamayura Hitotose

    The World God Only Knows

    Umineko no Naku Koro ni

    Yuru Yuri

    Hetalia - Axis Powers

    Decent (not a waste of time, not a bad series at all... just not especially memorable or noteworthy, at least for me):

    Accel World (it's an ongoing series, so rank is based only on what's aired so far) (close to moving up a rank)

    Astarotte no Omocha

    Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai

    Hanamaru Youchien

    *D.Gray-man

    *Soul Eater

    Special A

    Minami-ke

    So-so (still not a total waste, but pretty flawed):

    Acchi Kocchi (it's an ongoing series, so rank is based only on what's aired so far)

    Kamisama no Memochou

    Kuroshitsuji

    Uta no Prince-sama

    Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (I finished the first season, but he humor didn't appeal to me at all, so I didn't watch more. You may feel differently; humor is so subjective)

    A * indicates a title I didn't finish for whatever reason.

    1. Shugo Chara

    2. Rozen Maiden

    3. Romeo x Juliet

    4. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

    5. Pokemon

    6. Lucky Star

    7. K-ON

    8. Kaichou wa Maid-sama

    9. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

    10. Fairytail

    11. Clannad

    These animes are really good!

  • 9 years ago

    Of those, I have completed the following:

    Angel Beats: An excellent 30-episode show that got crammed into only 14 episodes and really suffered as a result. Still good, but carrying a lot of wasted potential. The production quality, at any rate, is amazing.

    Azumanga Daioh: A classic moe comedy show. Not much of a story, but definitely worthwhile for the jokes and the historical value.

    Clannad: Slice-of-life romance done very right. People who need fast-paced plot or action in their anime might want to stay away, but everyone else should totally watch this (and no, you don't get to skip any parts). Probably the best production quality I've seen in any anime.

    Code Geass: My single favorite anime of all time. It's smart, it has some of everything, and the pacing is brilliant. Not for kids, though.

    Fullmetal Alchemist (2003): A classic fantasy adventure anime and an excellent example of writing and worldbuilding. Not to be missed, unless you can't stand violence.

    K-On: Another moe comedy show without much plot. It's longer than Azumanga Daioh and the production quality is better, but the jokes tend to be weaker.

    Lucky Star: Yet another moe comedy show without much plot. This one is full of otaku humor and thus is not for the uninitiated. Quite frankly, Azumanga Daioh and K-On are both better and more accessible.

    Oreimo: This one has even more otaku humor than Lucky Star, and likewise requires you to be familiar with the culture. The drama ranges from effective to ridiculous, but the jokes tend to be very sharp and the production quality is good.

    Rozen Maiden: An interesting and somewhat bipolar show that breaks a lot of molds. Surprisingly family-friendly given the premise, and definitely worth a watch.

    The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya: Very smart and well-executed, but driven entirely by characterization and humor rather than plot, and therefore not everyone's cup of tea. Be careful you understand the issues with the chronology and Endless Eight before watching!

    I'd start with

    Angel Beats!

    Clannad

    Ano Natsu de Matteru

    Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

    K-ON!

    Most of the ones on that list are pretty decent, but those are the major ones that stand out.

    Edit: If you watch Higurashi (it's not in your list, but it's essentially the prequel, although not necessary to watch) then want to see what happens in Umineko, I highly recommend that you just skip the anime and read the visual novel. It's a ton better, trust me.

    Not knowing your preferences in the anime genres, it's quite difficult to say which you might like from the list you gave. Though there are some very good animes that most people like (I'll give the ones I've seen myself and those I've heard/read more about):

    Angel Beats - definitely one of the best animes out there. A very interesting plot and execution, sad story.

    AnoHana - another very good anime, has a deep meaning and is quite sad.

    Baccano - although I haven't seen it myself, I've heard and read lots of positive stuff about it.

    Clannad - one of the bestmodern animes, with an even better 2nd season. Quite sad.

    Code Geass - together with the 2nd season, the anime tells an interesting story. There is mecha action (I generally hate mecha anime, but this one didn't bother me at all!), super-powers, mind-games and such things.

    Durarara - a very popular anime, still haven't completed it though.

    Full Metal Alchemist - haven't watched it myself, but it's widely praised by anime fans.

    Hell Girl - although this isn't a VERY good anime, I consider it to be worth mentioning. There are three seasons, each episode has a different story, but each of these episodes contributes to a deeper story, which is revealed throughout the season.

    Kamisama no Memochou - another interesting anime. A high-school boy helps a little girl solve mysterious cases.

    Lucky Star - liked by many people, but not my piece of cake.

    Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica - this anime... I really recommend you to watch it. Used to be one of the highest-rated anime until recently. I didn't dislike it - it just seemed too over-rated to me, but it's worth watching.

    The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - the legend of the anime world - definitely a must-watch for an anime fan.

    Umineko no Naku Koro ni - worth watching, but has lots of gore. It has a psychological aspect, though. As someone mentioned, there's also the Higurashi series, which are considered better than Umineko.

    I've left out the Shounen Jump series, because they don't suit everybody's tastes, and I left out the ecchi titles - also a matter of personal preference. Some that I didn't mention before, but are worth trying:

    OreImo, Ao no Excorcist, Soul Eater, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Azumanga Daioh.

    That list is HUGE!! And you are worried that One Piece is too long. LOL. I'll list the ones that I have seen that are worth watching.

    Durarara

    Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (this is the one with the good ending)

    One Piece

    Soul Eater

    Some others:

    Tiger & Bunny

    Casshern Sins

    Gurren Lagann

    Ao No Exorcist, READ THE MANGA, yet another series with a filler ending.

    Depends on what type of anime do you like. But here is my recommendation:

    Angel Beats

    Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (is not too bad but a lot of ecchi in it)

    C3 - Cube x Cursed x Curious (the storyline is good, but there's ecchi as well. Quite violent and bloody, the story left with a cliffhanger though, hope there's a season 2).

    Clannad (didn't see this yet, but I heard that the sequel ''Clannad After Story'' is really sad)

    Code Gease

    K-ON!! (this is season 2), watch season 1 first (called K-ON! *with one exclaimation mark*).

    Pokemon was good but it gets boring after a few hundred episodes (so avoid this after a few seasons)

    Tamayura Hitotose is a really relaxing anime (slice of life). About a girl who loves photography and uses a camera that her late father used to use. It was a heartwarming series. But if you don't like it, then you can drop this anytime (only 12 episodes). But watch Tamayura OVA episodes (4 of them - they are short) first.
