shingeki no gunzet attack on mangatutorials
Golgo 13 (also on Netflix) is really good imo
Monster is very good, but it's a slow moving series and I don't think it's ever been dubbed into English.
I like Golgo 13 as well, but eh... it's not the first thing I'd think of to watch with the missus. It's a pulp thriller about an emotionless, unstoppable hitman.
Kemono no Souja Erin
Seirei no Moribito
Sword Art Online
I'm not entirely sure FLCL and Kemono no Souja Erin are dubbed, but they are still very well done anime. If you liked all that other shounen crap, you'd most likely like Sword Art Online. It's fairly popular and just recently dubbed. Twelve Kingdoms and Seirei no Moribito are based on novels, so they are very well written and are really fun to watch too. Seirei no Moribito has some of the best background art in an anime I've seen as well. Lemme know if you need any more recs.
I watched FLCL on adult swim when I was younger so Im pretty sure its dubbed.
ya FLCL is definitely dubbed. And i would also recommend FLCL it influenced me a lot when i was younger
I have FLCL on dooveedee. It's well dubbed, mucho greatness and ultra hyper strange-good.
It's a bit hard not to suggest the obvious classics here, but Cowboy Bebop and GitS are popular for good reason. If you like really weird things (Ala FLCL), then Dead Leaves and Red Line are some more (short but sweet) classics. I know at least two of those have been brought up, but they have my vote, anyhow.
About not wanting to see mecha stuff; I don't blame you. Almost all mecha series from the last couple of years have been garbage. I wouldn't let it colour your opinions on the older series, through, most of them do not behave quite as much like the power rangers, as the modern Gundam series do.
As a rule of thumb about such things, I'd say if it looks like they put all the effort into the robots and the characters are super boring bishes, let it pass. If the characters look interesting and the robots look goofy as smeg, it's probally a good-un.
I personally think XXXholic is an awesome English dubbed anime. I prefer the English dub to the original Japanese VA's.
