Im pretty middle ground on naruto. I dont think its great, but it is watchable.
Never watched bleach before.
Death Note has been really good so far.
And the site Prinny posted is my guide haha.
If your after a good anime with fighting watch Hajime no ippo/Fighting spirit

Theres also THIS SITE its always worth looking round a few sites
I don't trust any list that says Moribito is better than Cowboy Bebop.
It kinda gose off what anime is rated higher

IE X anime gets one score at 10 is over Y anime that gets 20 at 9

But its a gudie really
The top ten is not a top ten animes ever
Wow no one has said any of these 10/10 animes yet

Elfen Lied
Spice and wolf
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (deemed the most epic anime ever, it is)

These are all short series anime. Elfen Lied is only 13 episodes and is the goriest/beautifulest anime ive ever watch.
Spice and Wolf is a great plot focusing on economics, trade, and peddling rather than the typical staples of fantasy such as swords and magic. Doesnt sound good but trust me its amazing
And about Tengen... Just watch it.
What, no one mentions Cromartie High School?

Kyle (Napalmbrain) has mentioned most of my favorites, but I would add "Samurai Champloo" to the list, highly recommended.

There's also FLCL, Witchblade, Genocyber, and KARAS.
