i think code geass is a very good anime. not to 'make believe' but very action packed and interesting. i think the chracters are drawn very well and the plot is very interesting. its only 25 episodes long but its a very good anime. worth the watch.
also samurai champloo, as said before, is VERY good. it kind of shows you Japans rural side and although its pretty gory and such, its very good and VERY funny. its also full of action and if you like crazy/amazing samurai fighting scenes then you'll love this anime.

I realise it's been sixteen months since this question was asked, but anyway...
Personally I think the best answer would be Crunchyroll. It's a legal streaming service showing licensed anime. You can watch for free, in which case you get commercials in each episode, or you can subscribe and you don't get the ads.
I wonder if Crunchyroll works in Japan? Some shows (not very many) aren't available to me because Crunchyroll does not have the UK distribution rights for that show. I would expect that Japanese TV networks own the JP distribution rights for a lot of the shows, so those shows might not be available using Crunchyroll if you are in Japan.
To prolong my procrastination, I'll contribute to this thread a bit more, since no one has posted here in a while.
Good series I've watched (These are more oriented toward adult viewers) 1. Cowboy Bebop!!!! 2. Samurai Champloo!! 3. Ghost in the shell!! 4. Trigun 5. Evangelion 6. Fullmetal alchemist (I only own the original anime series, don't know how good the new brotherhood is) 7. Paranoia agent (this was quite thought provoking as well) 8. Gantz (Only for adult due to quite a bit of violence and adult theme. Apart from that, the story line is quite interesting, but if you can take the violence, go the manga. If not, watch the live motion picture) For younger viewers 1. Doraemon 2. Hartori (The cartoon series) 3. Conan (When is he going to solve his own mystery and become a grown man again? Its been going on for soooooooo long)
