Kamina compels you to die before half the season is over and kill off the only mildly interesting character on the show.

Hellsing Ultimate is win, regular hellsing is not.

It's the Hellsing OVA. Both the OVA and the regular series are good. Higher quality than the Adult Swim bullshit that people get shoveled down their throats.

I saw the first two episodes on the Scifi channel but then I kept forgetting to watch Animonday so I got way behind! So now, I have not gotten to episode 8 yet xD

Dude It depends on what you like.

Do you like action, great story, romance, ecchi(soft hentai), or comedy.

Deathnote - Battle of wits, the main character is an anti-hero, epic story.
Samurai Shamploo - Episodic, epic sword fights, mediocre story
Fullmetal Alchemist - Contains a bit of drama, epic fights, magic, and epic story.
Sword of the Stranger - Epic sword fights, great story, a movie that is currently competing for the oscar's animation category.

FMA=overrated mainstream anime

.....although I did love it before it became mainstream

FMA. Although, Death Note is probably the easiest one to find eps for.
Just go to Deathnotetv.com and they're all there.

Naruto, Im sorry it's a predictable answer but it is enjoyable, not to farfetched like a lot of animes and has a good measure of action, drama and comedy, most of all it wil draw you in fast so you don't have to wait  like my friend used to say "it will get good" referring to Bleach, yeah i said it what are you going to do =]

Good to see you here MB. Why does nobody seem to like Dragon Ball Z around here? Is it shunned or something?

Go and watch that, Dragon Ball first if you want, but I started on Z and was fine. But you should probably stay away from GT, it wasn't done by the original writers so it wasn't as good really...
