My two picks would be from the very old anime series:
- Ginga Nagareboshi Gin (Available on fansubs only, is that ok?)
- Galaxy Express 999 (Available for free on CrunchyRoll for USA citizen)

Hopely the old animation style won't bother you. When watched, how did you liked those?

By the way, the already recommended Gunsmith Cats and Iria: Zeiram have less than 10 episodes though. If those aren't accepted, maybe you want to change the recommendation? Though, it seems Acmurphy may have accepted those nonetheless.

It shouldn't, I happen to have a preference for older titles so those should be fine. Thanks!

Well there were quite a few episodes entered into the contest this time around, and we finally have a winner!

The best first episode contest goes to... CommonDeer with his recommendation of Welcome to the NHK! None of the other series were quite able to make me want to continue watching like NHK! did. So nice work and let me know which box set you would like.

There were a number of interesting entries and a couple of series I will probably continue. I'll undoubtedly get to talking about them in the watching now thread, so suffice to say, thanks for participating everyone!

Congratulations to CommonDeer! NHK certainly has an interesting premise, but overall I didn't like the manga (haven't seen the anime). I think if you ever want to try quit spending your time in anime/manga, you could try NHK therapy.

It was rewarding enough to be able to participate and hear Acmurphy's comments. Nice that you commented every suggestion. If you liked Silver Fang (Ginga Nagareboshi Gin) and are going to continue, I would love to read your review of it in Animetric's anime section. It's only 21 episode long. That anime is definitely my favorite anime of all the time (nostalgy included)! I have seen it partially as a kid and completely when an uncensored DVD box was released in my country. However, I would like to hear the thoughts of someone who doesn't consider it to be an instant classic.

You're not the only one. I never thought I'd even win a flower pot with my recommendation of Gunsmith Cats, because I absolutely dislike the series.

Congratulations, by the way. :d^_^b:

You sly dog, you've gotten creative with your recommendations! Though your technique is a strange one it seems to have worked out for you rather well 8)

The Gunsmith Cats are as popular as fresh rolls. I dunno why.
Hm, okay, I can see that it might have a certain appeal.
But I was rather appalled by it starting like a light-hearted action comedy that later turned out all blood and guts. Well, maybe not that extreme... but it became totally serious and wasn't fun anymore. BurnUp W was kinda similar: Sexy police action comedy in the beginning (with disturbingly misogynic uniform designs), later come terrorists and massacer a whole police station. :blink:
I don't mind either-or, but in combination I find it inappropriate.
