I've never watched an anime.. never found much interest in the idea of one, but I would like to give one a try. I'd probably prefer one that is with english voice actors, more serious (with a really good story, plot, etc) and probably the more 'real' looking (less cartoon-ish) the better.

With that in mind, what would you suggest would be a good one for me to start with? Are there any in particular that really fit the bill that I outlined above?

To save Prak's breath, you should have checked the already-existing threads for a recommendations thread. It's on the top of the sticky threads.

Embarrassingly enough, I don't have anything in mind that meets your requirements. There are plenty of serious animes out there, but "real-looking?" And are you expecting to find a good dub online?

That's probably not as big of an issue. I just think that if it looked too cartoon-like it would be difficult to get into it. I'm just guessing here since i've never watched one before. I saw a youtube video for this one which looked kind of interesting: .. the look seems kind of futuristic and 3d animation (re: Final Fantasy Spirits Within), more realistic animation than say naruto

Yea it's pretty realistic...if the future was really gonna be like that.

That anime is top-notch IMO tho. You should check it out if you're into deep storyline and detective type shows.

And please don't save prak's breath. Let him use it all up so that we can be rid of him.

Bah. The Recommendations thread is there for a reason.
