Hmmmmm, I haven't read a good anime post in a long while so im going to start one.

What is everyones favorite series ? Have any suggestions on what to watch next ? Where do you get yours and by what means ?

My favorite animes are :
Prince of Tennis (115 episodes and counting)

Ryome Echizen is a freshman tennis player in Seigaku high school. He is a prodigy tennis player who has just arrived from America. The series follows the story of him, his tennis comrades and rivals from district to kantou to national tournament of tennis and their goal to be the best in Japan.
This is probobly my favorite anime. The tennis matches are intense believe it or not and it goes in-depth with so many characters its insane. Currently being subbed by anime-otakus with bit torrent links @
Naruto (76 episodes and counting)

The story follows trouble maker Uzamaki Naruto and his team of ninjas in their quest to make ranks. They go on various missions and have numerous battles, very intense with a great story line.
The Series can be found @ while is the first to release each episode every week.
Full Metal Alchemist (25 episodes and counting)

The main character is a famous alchemist named Edward Elric, who loses his little brother Alphonse in an accident. Edward manages to contain his brother's soul in a large piece of armor suit. However, merging the soul and body of the dearly departed comes with great cost, so the two brothers must embark on a journey to find a mysterious power amplifier which can reduce the cost to manipulate objects greatly.
This is probobly the most emotional anime I've seen, it has a strong storyline along with highly developed characters. The series is very serious but has alot of comic relief as well. It can be found @
One Piece (89 episodes have been subbed and continue to be however 150+ have been released in Japan)

It was a time when pirates ruled the seas. Several bands of pirates were battling over the great hidden treasure, One Piece, which was left by the now legendary pirate captain, G. Roger. There was a young boy who admired the pirates. His name was Luffy. One day, he mistakenly eats the devil's fruit and turns himself into a rubber human being.
Ten years later Luffy sets out to find some Nakama "a friendship that cant even be described as 'best friend'" and become the Pirate King. This anime has a superb storyline along with character development. It's also very unique with all kinds of stuff happening you never though would. Very good.
Hajime No Ippo (76 episodes)

The last in my anime hall of fame, Magunochi Ippo is an ordinary high school student in Japan. Since he spends most of his time away from school helping his mother run the family business, he doesn't get to enjoy his younger years like most teenagers. Always a target for bullying at school (the family fishing business grants him a distinct odor), Ippo's life is one of hardship.
One of these after-school bullying sessions turns Ippo's life around for the better, as he is saved by a boxer named Takamura. He decides to follow in Takamura's footsteps and train to become a boxer, giving his life direction and purpose. Ippo's path to perfecting his pugilistic prowess is just beginning ... I haven't completed this anime but it's got me hooked. A great story with unique characters and intense fights. The only BT link i found was @ which has all 76 episodes in 1 file (15 gigs :-\)
*Note you can also find some of these animes on IRC in their subbers irc channels, #anime-otakus @ does Prince of Tennis, #kaizoku-fansubs @ does One Piece, and #anbudom @ subs Full Metal Alchemist and Naruto.
