Man, there are so many good shows to recommend, just from the things posted in this thread Joshua should have enough material to last him a while. (If all of the DEEP ghost in a shell plot doesn't scare him away for life  :p )
Legend of the galatic heroes (LoGH) has been mentioned before, with all the valid sidenotes regarding the show. Even so, let me add a suggestion to the recommendation; sample the show by watching the first movie first (it's 1 hour long), that takes place a bit before the main show, called "My Conquest is the Sea of Stars". If you find that to your taste, then the call to watch all wooping 110 episodes or not is much easier to make. Because imho, LoGH is absolutely worth watching for all of its 110 (+50 something side episodes) duration. But I can also understand that it might not be to everyone's taste.

You still acted like you are under the same kind of persecution complex though.
My intention was not to offend, and I apologize for having done so unwittingly but you seem not to conceive that perhaps there are nerd communities that don't take themselves so seriously as to get offended for what was a mere joke about our nerd passions, I mean, we are a community about space pew pew, good grief!
"All of the anime you watch that is not from studio ghibli is stupid crap" "no no, I didn't meant to offend, I just merely came into this thread to share with everyone how much I dislike a form of entertainment that you enjoy." "Gawd stop getting so offended and being passive aggressive."
No sure, you are totally being reasonable here. And you contribute so much to the topic at hand.
Good grief you are making bad posts. Suggestion for self-reflection: Don't go into threads about hobbies that you don't enjoy for the sole purpose to act like a jerk and tell everyone how much you don't like their hobby. And especially don't tell someone they're being too serious and oversensitive after you literally went out of your way to tell them how much 'idiotic crap' you think their favorite sort of entertainment is.

Because you know why not? It makes you look like a bloody immature wanker is why. And the world would be just a little bit nicer of a place if people could just act less like jerks and apply the 'live and let live' motto to their lifes some more.
Now be on your way and enjoy whatever thing you enjoy being entertained by.

Okay, some random things I like:
Person of Interest

If you are interested in something along the lines PoI's action sequences (esspecially when you think of Root and Shaw*), might I suggest Noir from 2001?

The series follows the contract killers Mireille and Kirika from their meeting under suspicoious cricumstance to uncover what links them together.

EDIT: and its 26 episodes, so rather short time committment

The series is a bit slow at first and has some proudction value difficulties in the beginning (e.g. re-use of shots) but it quickly passes. The action is somewhat slower than PoI and lacks the high-tech angle that defines PoI, but the mystery is engaging and presentation is very interesting (dare I say, cool? I dare to) and appropriately film noir-infused. The soundtrack is very good and memorable, and a particular favorite of mine (just writing this brought it back).

* (note: I've yet to see Season 5 of PoI)

Det. Bullock there is no need to keep coming back to a thread about something you dislike in order to... I don't know, defend your honor, or something?  I can't see a reason why this conversation is still going.  You guys should probably drop it, so everyone can stop having to watch pointless bickering from either side!

I hope this thread results in Joshua finding anime that he will enjoy watching.

I think that would be a nice outcome.

I had to look it up, I am glad of it.

Quote
Anime director Hideki Takayama took great artistic liberties with the Urotsukidōji story, mixing elements of horror, violence, and sadistic scenes of rape not present in the original work. Maeda himself stated in an issue of Playboy Japan that he found the anime to be repugnant, cruel and sadistic, yet brilliant. He also said he admires Takayama's take on his vision. The anime series is most famous for being the first in the tentacle rape genre, though only one scene in the first OAV actually contains any tentacle rape.

I mean, whats not to like?

Okay, some random things I like:
Westworld
Person of Interest
Battlestar Galactica
The Last Kingdom
Elementary
Sherlock
Game of Thrones

From the little I know about such TV luminaries, Ghost in the Shell should be pretty much right in your Westworld wheelhouse.  The already-mentioned Trigun is a classic if you're looking for the Western side of things.  Something I haven't seen recommended yet that might scratch a Game of Thrones itch would be The Twelve Kingdoms: it starts with something of a standard "girl sucked into mystical fantasy world" premise, but overall it fits in the high-fantasy mold and delves into the politics of its setting pretty heavily. (The very good Escaflowne has a similar setup, only it adds in romance and magic and giant robots and catgirls and all sorts of other fun stuff.  Killer soundtrack too.)  Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit is another great fantasy title by the same director as the GITS: Stand-Alone Complex series.

And on the crime/psychological side of things, there's absolutely no higher recommendation I can give you than Monster.  It's the story of a brilliant Japanese brain surgeon practicing in Germany whose decision to save a young gunshot victim's life comes back to haunt him in unimaginable ways.  It spends a lot of time exploring the age-old question of what drives someone to become evil, and its main villain is one of the creepiest mother****ers I've ever seen despite almost never needing to lift a finger himself.  It's a bit of a long haul at 74 episodes, but boy does it suck  you in.

saw a lot of mentions of the 1995 Ghost in the Shell movie and not one mention of its 2004 sequel which is one of my favourite movies of all time.
Isn't that one mostly 90 minutes of Batou and Togusa quoting philosophy at each other, with a few sad Basset hounds?

Only if you weren't paying attention, and also didn't notice any of the gorgeous set pieces.

Psycho-Pass is also great in terms of crime/psych.  Heavy shades of Minority Report.  Relatively new, gorgeous, good pacing, not terribly long (26 episodes for the first season, which is the best).

To be perfectly honest I've never seen it myself, but most fans of the franchise I know weren't particularly keen on it.  Plus I greatly prefer the Stand-Alone Complex series to Oshii's original film, so I'm not sure how much I'd dig him cranking the Oshii-ness up to another level.

I'm not much of a fan of it either. Taken on its own, its still pretty good (albeit a bit too meditative for my tastes), but it's very much a departure from what the first movie and SAC have established the franchise to be and what to expect from it.
