Here are some shows I recommend;
-Steins;Gate: starts off as a slice of life type, then quickly branches off from that. Really good time travel sci-fi.
-Cowboy Bebop: great space-western series
-Higurashi no Naku Koro ni: This one takes a while to get, they don't tell you what's going on. By the second season, it really pulls together and makes a great horror anime.
-Great Teacher Onizuka: an ex-gang leader is now a school teacher, helps students, hilarity ensues. This one is great.
-Madoka Magica: Great magical girl anime with a dark twist.
-Welcome to the NHK: A shut-in and a high school girl trying to help him. Really funny.
And here's a couple films I adore;
-Paprika, Perfect Blue: both horror-ish anime films by the same director, Perfect Blue more so. Both leave you thinking about their subject though though.
-Summer Wars, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time: Summer Wars is a really cool concept. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is basically an instant classic, I definitely recommend you try it.
Anything by Studio Ghibli, like Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, Totoro, etc.
