Hey! I usually only watch Pokemon, and DBZ and I just started watching Strike Witches; I'm not really into Naruto or One Piece, but I'd like to start watching more. What are son good titles to look at?

Pokemon and DBZ isn't too much information to go off of, but if you have access to Hulu, you might want to check out the following: 
InuYasha - InuYasha: The Final Act
Soul Eater 
Samurai Champloo 
Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
Gurren Lagaan 
Last Exile   
Fullmetal Panic - FMP: Fumoffu - FMP: The Second Raid
School Rumble 
Negima - Negima?!
Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts 
The Slayers - Slayers Next - Slayers Try - Slayers Revolution / Evolution R
Gunslinger Girl - GG: Il Teatrino 
Bubblegum Crisis
One Piece (a lot of episodes out) 
 
That's the stuff I have seen.  There's other stuff up there that I haven't seen that you might like, too.  Stuff I plan to see sometime soon like: 
Ramen Fighter Miki 
Bamboo Blade 
Spice & Wolf 
Eden of the East 
House of Five Leaves  
Baccano  
Black Cat
Corpse Princess 
D.Gray Man 
XXXoholic 
Darker than Black 
Claymore
 
There's probably stuff I am missing, too.  And, if you don't have Hulu or don't like watching anime on your computer, all are available on DVD for purchase or rental (netflix).

Have you tried Code Geass? I just recently started watching that, as well as Clannad(but that's more of a drama series.) Not sure if that's your type, Shasta.

Sure thing, after I finish it. I'm a few episodes away from starting After Story. I have to say, I was kinda reluctant to watch Clannad(I'm watching it with my sister, since she wanted to watch anime. So, I picked Clannad) cause I thought it would be a chick flick-type of anime, but it's actually touching.  
 
I can't get those Dangos out of my head! D:

I really hate anime requests with ambiguous borders, so i guess I shall just name a good one I finished watching: Darker than Black (or the first season thereof). Studio BONES and a score by Yoko Kanno along with low-level magic powers and espionage. Watch it.
Post by Guyver (3,406 posts) See mini bio Level 14

She does like it lol. She doesn't want me to watch the rest of the series without her. 
 
Okay, dude. Looks at her gigantic ears O_o

Strike Witches, DBZ (but no Naruto or One Piece) and Pokemon is a weird combination to say the least.  I can't really target anything at you other than maybe giving Naruto another shot if you like DBZ and checking out Bleach.

@UsachanMaN:  Yeah, but DtB's story is a bit more comprehensible.

@DocHaus:

Well i always loved pokemon and DBZ (From my child hood) I watched strike witches while i was sick, and it sorta stuck. I'm really open to watch anything  
(Nothing with heavy nudity though)

@Sha:  I left off anything with a heavy amount of fan-service (exploitation of the female form) and nudity.  You're likely going to want to avoid the following series:  

Queen's Blade 
Ikki Tousen - (plus IT: Dragon Destiny, Great Guardians, and Xtreme Xcutioner) 
Ladies vs Butlers 
Seikon no Qwaser 
Eiken 
  
There are some others like Charger-girl Juden Chan, Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou and Girls Bravo that will probably also offend although to a lesser degree than those above.
