Anime Advice Needed and Appreciated

Well now that my time watching Texhnolyze is almost up I'm looking for a new anime series to start watching.

What I've seen:
NGE
Bebop
2 of the Gundam Series (can't remember their names)
GitS SAC 2nd Gig
DBZ ::bows head in shame:: from my younger days.
RahXephon
Gungrave
Paranoia Agent
Texhnolyze (almost done)

Types of Animes that I like:
Any, so long as it has a good story.
But I particularly like serious/dark anime

I don't like:
"kiddy" anime
hentai (unless it adds to the overall development of the series)
Anime that isn't dubbed in English (I'm not being racist here, I just don't like to read subtitles the whole time)

Any help you kind folks good give will be greatly appreciated.
Danke

My first impression says "get thee to see FLCL (storyline)...Now and Then, Here and There (very serious)...and Berserk (good doses of both)."

And regarding your signature, if those 5 minutes of Naruto were from the first two episodes, I'd seriously re-evaluate your opinion of the series.

Much agreed on the Naruto part. When you get up into the 130-133 episodes, it'll blow you away.

I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but Monster is a very good, serious story well worth watching.

There's also Yukikaze (though only 2 DVDs have been released in the 2-3 years since the first was made), The Twelve Kingdoms, and Tsukihime (sp?)

You could be right. I thought that Naruto was along the lines of DBZ where you had 10-20 episodes with virtually nothing happening. I'll reevaluate tonight when Naruto comes on Cartoon Network.

Are you German? You confused me a bit!

[B]Anime that isn't dubbed in English (I'm not being racist here, I just don't like to read subtitles the whole time)[\B]

So what language do you want you anime in? Or did you mean anime that isn't "Subtitled" in English.

I hate the Gungrave video game, however I loved the anime series.


Kenshin
Peacemaker
Berserk
Scryed
Twelve Kingdoms
Arc The Lad (it was decent as far as the story goes)
Escaflowne
Vandread
X
Record Of Lodoss War (1st pick)

I caught a brain fart so I hope that this helps you!

Gah,you all forgot the greatest anime series of all time! Slayers!Slayers Next and Slayers Try are also great

Scrapped Princess(storyline)
Elfen Lied (Storyline,very dark.There's hentai but not too much)
Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni (Also very dark and a storyline that keeps you wanting more)

I'm not German (I live in the state of Georgia, USA), but I'm teaching myself the language this summer in preparation for my trip to Europe next summer. My "summer project" if you will.

I would prefer my anime "dubbed" in English, because I can't read Japanese and hate looking down to read and looking back up to see what the characters are doing. (sorry got my terminology confused)
