My Number 1 Favorite Anime Ever is no other than....
I love this anime because it is a combination of action, romance and mystery...
Overview: Blood+ is the story of Chiropterans (the name of the order of biological classification that bats are in, this is the most likely reason for the vampiric creatures being called "Chiropterans" ) and Chevaliers (a vampire like creature) on how they inhabit the earth and their motives of living.
Also the things that makes me love this anime is that I love vampires story...^_^
Theres a ton I love but Naruto is number 1 for me.
I really didn't get interested in anime until I found Naruto. Enjoying it opened me back up to older stuff I'd seen be really didn't get into at the time. I rewatched movies like Akkira and Ghost in the Shell and started the dragon ball series 15 or so years after it was popular in the US.
Anime is good stuff lots of stuff to choose from and something for pretty much everyone

I've never heard of either galaxy express or iria. Galaxy Express looks awesome I think I'll check it out. I'm curious though, have you watched any of it recently? Sometimes a lot of these don't age well.
I guess I basically like the stories and animation of these. They were a short series, maybe about 6 episodes. There is a basic compilation into a movie of both series. But I like the full series. You can watch these over youtube, which I just found out this week. Ageing part, I still like watching them. Robot Carnival, which is a movie, is another favorite. There are those that I watched years ago, I'm talking like 18 years, on the syfy channel, back when I had cable, such a long time ago and technology was so different, that have aged like you are referring to. There is one Roujin Z which I still like from that time period. I think the weird oddity of Robot Carnival and Roujin Z is what still makes those two enjoyable for me to watch.
There is so much good anime now as it has gotten better over the years.
I was able to watch the first episode of galaxy express 999 on crunchyroll and it was pretty awesome. Its got that Voltron art style which is very dated but I feel holds up really well. I'll have to finish up the series and try out some of those others you'd recommended.
