Can anybody suggest any anime for a newcomer please?

Basically, my friend is really into anime and has been trying to get me into it to. So I said I'd give some shows a try. I just wanted to know what shows/movies you guys would recommend. I would like suggestions from pretty much all genres but am keen on some more comedy-light hearted stuff and action heavy stuff too but I'm open to and would like to check out any other stuff new and old. So yeah, recommend any good series or movies. I've already seen quite a few Studio Ghibli films and liked them. Maybe some more mainstream stuff and some hardcore stuff too. If possible could you please catagorise suggestions. Thanks a lot in advanced and I appreciate any suggestions.

    Shingeki no Kyojin - one word Amazing! it's still ongoing and the second season is coming out soon! (Action)

    Full metal Alchemist (FMA) - Classic but make sure you watch the real ending - switch to "Brotherhood" version (The manga didn't finish so the first anime made up an ending for me the read ending was soo much better!) (Action)

    Here's two to get started...virtually tonnes out there! When you say main stream.....One Piece, Naruto, Bleach. But these are long....I absolutely love One piece....but you have to give it some time to grow on took me more than 50 episodes before I became interested in it!!....and now I can't seem to get enough.
