Ok all you anime watchers. For a newbie like me, what is one amine series is a must watch? I did watch Afro Samurai back in the day. I enjoyed it and always want to start something else, but never really knew what good ones to watch.
Can't go wrong with a classic like Naruto. Jojos Bizarre Adventure is really great. These have many episodes though. I really enjoyed Devilman Crybaby and there's only a handful of episodes

Depends on genre. Anime is wide, weird, & plentiful.

Whatever you're into trust me there's an anime for that.
OK, I guess I didn't think of that - I liked Afro Samurai. I guess I could compare it to movies, I like action movies like John Wick, Ip Man (well the first two), but tend to dislike action heroes movies (Marvel, DC, Guardians of the Galaxy stuff) Not a fan of time period stuff either (Don't hate me everyone...but Lord of the Ring, Harry Potter). I love Quentin Tarantino Movies. Does that help?

Assuming most people here are car people.... Initial D is a good one. Just don't watch it dubbed. It's pretty fucking bad dubbed.

So based on that:
Definitely Golgo-13 series and if you wanna go OG, Sonny Chiba as Duke in live action.
Macross (all)
Trigun
Cowboy Bebop
Patlabor(1 movie)
Lupin III
There plaobaly are newer ones but these should be a good foundation for action styles.

I have always heard Cowboy Bebop is great - I think I might give that a go, might try Ghost in the Shell too. If I get into it, I will check out some more recently made Anime. I'll try the classics first. Thanks everyone!

No prob.

I will second the Initial D with subtitles is infinitely better than the terribly dubbed versions. Soooooo much is lost in the English voice actors lack of expression that Japanese needs. Also a bunch of lines are completely out of context in English so that doesn't help.

Currently rewatching Cowboy Bebop as a refresher since the live-action is coming out soon. Really really hoping that Netflix doesn't fuck it up ...
They're gonna fuck it up. The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel doesn't need a re-paint.

I'm kinda worried about the Bebop live action getting proper fucked, but so far, netflix has done good with whatever they've dipped their hands into.
You may not have seen the live action Death Note :)
