Oh ok well, one anime I really enjoyed that you may find adventerous is 'Death Note', here's a bit of a plot overline
'Light Yagami is an extremely intelligent young man who resents what appears to be a relentless increase of crime and corruption in the world around him. His life undergoes a drastic change when he discovers a mysterious notebook, known as the "Death Note," lying on the ground. The Death Note's instructions claim that if a human's name is written within it, that person shall die. Light is initially skeptical of the notebook's authenticity, but after experimenting with it, he realizes that the Death Note is real. After meeting with the previous owner of the Death Note, a shinigami named Ryuk, Light seeks to become "the God of the New World" by passing his keen judgment on those he deems to be evil or who get in his way.
Soon, the number of inexplicable deaths of reported criminals catches the attention of the International Police Organization and a mysterious detective known only as "L". L quickly learns that the serial killer, dubbed by the public as "Kira" (キラ?, derived from the typical Japanese pronunciation of the English word "killer", is located in Japan. He also concludes that Kira can kill people without laying a finger on them. Light realizes that L will be his greatest nemesis, and a game of psychological cat and mouse between the two begins.
Misa Amane, another Death Note owner, finds Light. Obsessed by Kira after the death of her parents' murderer, she devotes herself to helping Light, but is captured by L. Light makes a plan involving renouncing ownership of both Death Notes, and all of his memories of them, and turns himself in to L for surveillance. Together, Light and L investigate eight people from the company "Yotsuba" who are using Light's Death Note for their own profit. While arresting them, Light recovers all his memories when he touches the Death Note. He remembers and continues his plan of tricking the former owner of Misa's Death Note, the shinigami Rem, into killing L and his aide Watari.'
I REALLY enjoyed this anime, I DEFINITELY recommend it, infact, I am now actually begging you to watch it, my favourite character was 'L'

Another one I liked was 'Outlaw Star'
Outlaw Star follows the outlaw Gene Starwind and his eleven year-old business associate, Jim Hawking. Together they run a small jack-of-all-trades business on the backwater planet Sentinel III. After the two take a job as bodyguards for a mysterious outlaw, they find themselves the owners of the XGP15A-II, a highly advanced prototype spacecraft, and the caretakers of a bio-android named Melfina. Through the course of the series, the crew grows to include the assassin "Twilight" Suzuka and Aisha Clanclan, a Ctarl-Ctarl and former Ambassador of the Ctarl-Ctarl Empire.
One thing I really love about some anime's are their music, loved the ending songs to this anime.

Another one is I liked is 'Ayashi No Ceres'
Ayashi no Ceres is the story of Aya Mikage and her twin brother Aki who are driven apart by the forces of fate. On their sixteenth birthday, Aya and Aki are called to the family home to be given a special present. What they thought was a birthday party, however, was really a test--one which Aya failed. She was found to possess the reincarnated spirit of an ageless tennyo, one bent on the recovery of her hagoromo and the destruction of the Mikage family. Aya quickly found herself separated from her beloved brother, and hunted by her own family.

I loved Fushigi Yuugi, filled with adventure, romance, comedy etc the same person who created 'Ayashi No Ceres' created this one.
Miaka Yuuki, an average middle school student caught up in studying for exams, is sucked into an ancient Chinese novel titled "The Universe of Four Gods". There she discovers that she is in an ancient country in what is now China, Konan, and is to be the Priestess of one of the four gods, Suzaku. As the priestess, her duty is to gather the Seven Seishi of Suzaku, who are to be her protectors. Once they are gathered, the priestess will summon the god Suzaku and bring peace between the warring lands, Konan and Kutou. But it's harder than it seems. Along the road, many hardships are faced, as Miaka's best friend Yui Hongo enters the book and becomes her rival, the priestess of Seiryuu in the land of Kutou. Who summons their god first is up to the courage and skill of the priestesses and their seishi, as they meet triumphs and tragedies along the way.

Wouldn't call this exactly an 'adventure' anime, it's more of a drama and romance one but I liked it and what the heck, you might too, it's called 'Paradise Kiss'
Yukari is a typical high-school student who listens to her parents and attends school everyday. As she starts to question her way of life, she encounters a group of fashion design students who has a clothing label known as "Paradise Kiss". The group needs to find a model to showcase their designs in an up-coming fashion show and decides to pick Yukari instead. Initially, Yukari was reluctant to be associated with this seemingly eccentric group, but eventually, she realises that they are really nice people. Furthermore, their passion and enthusiasm to follow their ideals and dreams make Yukari realise that she has not been enjoying her life and this motivated her to pursue her own dreams.

Another one that is not adventerous (Sorry) but I liked is 'Peach Girl', more of a drama, romance and comedy anime.
Peach Girl is about an average high school girl, Momo Adachi, who everyone thinks is a beach bunny / slut because of her tanned skin. The actual reason she is so tanned is because she was on the swim team and tans very easily. She likes a boy, Toji, who she heard only likes non-tanned girls. This causes her to question who she is and have low self esteem. She spends a lot of time trying to remake herself into the girl she believes he wants. However, she has a friend, Sae, who likes to go behind Momo's back and make her life terrible, mostly by trying to take Toji away from her. All the while there's another boy, Kairi, who is in love with Momo.

InuYasha isn't too bad either, plus it's under the 'adventure' genre.
Higurashi Kagome, after being pulled down a well by a demon, finds herself in Feudal Japan, where she learns that a powerful jewel has been reborn inside her body. After the jewel shatters in an attempt to retrieve it from one of the many demons who was after its power, Kagome must join forces with the half-demon Inu Yasha (also after the jewel's power) to track down the shards of the jewel before its power falls into the wrong hands.

SAMURAI X (Rurouni Kenshin)
|Re: What Anime Show Should I Watch? by ibkaye(f): 9:09pm On Jul 28, 2009|
She already has two of those animes on her 'already watched' list.
Yes, try rurouni kenshin, another good anime.
|Re: What Anime Show Should I Watch? by grafikdon: 6:29pm On Jul 31, 2009|
Gai Rai Zero: Kuro
Valkyria Chronicles (ongoing)
Welcome to the NHK
Phantom: Requiem to the Phantom
Ryoko's Case File
Try to watch the original Japanese versions with subs. The English dubs are generally repulsive.

You can try out Basilisk (Its short but you'll love it, Romance/adventure)
The Law of UEKI is more of comedy but cool.

|Re: What Anime Show Should I Watch? by loktarogar(m): 3:51am On Aug 04, 2009|
I would recomend Neon Genesis Evangelion to you. It has just about 26 episodes and while the graphics may not be all that great, it should make you feel a certain emotion if you watch all the episodes.

Yuki's earliest memory is of a stormy night in winter, wherein she was attacked by a vampire, And then rescued by another. Now 10 years later, Yuki Cross, the adopted daughter of the headmaster of Cross Academy, has grown up and become a guardian of the vampire race, protecting her savior, Kaname, from discovery as he leads a group of vampires at the elite boarding school. But also at her side is Zero Kiryu, a childhood friend who’s hatred for the creatures that destroyed everything he held dear, is now determined never to trust them. This coexisting arrangement seems all well and good, but have the vampires truly renounced their murderous ways, or is there a darker truth behind their actions. Is Kaname's infatuation with Yuki the beginning of a forbidden romance, or is it something in her forgotten past that draws him to her. Because in this world of secrets, nothing is as it seems. And the price of misplaced trust may even be worse than death.

Do you also read mangas?
|Re: What Anime Show Should I Watch? by ibkaye(f): 7:53pm On Oct 13, 2009|
|Re: What Anime Show Should I Watch? by michelin89(f): 7:56pm On Oct 13, 2009|
I have parakiss and peach girls in mangas. Believe me they are much better.
|Re: What Anime Show Should I Watch? by ibkaye(f): 7:59pm On Oct 13, 2009|
michelin89:Yeah, I read the parakiss manga as well as watching the anime, couldn't get my hands on the peach girl manga though, books are always much better right?
Which manga did you prefer?
|Re: What Anime Show Should I Watch? by michelin89(f): 8:25pm On Oct 13, 2009|
My best of all times is Kodomo No Omocha by Miho Obama. I have this mangaka's entire collection. I just have three more mangas to go (7.50 euros each).
I have tons of other mangas. i think I have spent about 300 euros on mangas since I started a few years ago. I'll provide the complete list soon.
|Re: What Anime Show Should I Watch? by ibkaye(f): 8:31pm On Oct 13, 2009|
That's alot of money, manga's are usally about £7 here, sometimes I just read the scans online, what genre's are you generally into?
|Re: What Anime Show Should I Watch? by michelin89(f): 8:34pm On Oct 13, 2009|
I started from shojo. Now I am into tougher stuff but definitely not shonen. As for Miho Obana I'd buy anything even though it were about cats.
|Re: What Anime Show Should I Watch? by ibkaye(f): 8:38pm On Oct 13, 2009|
I started with the likes of dragonball z and sailormoon, I'd say I prefer the tougher ones too now, then again it depends, have you found yourself crushing on any of the characters?
|Re: What Anime Show Should I Watch? by michelin89(f): 8:39pm On Oct 13, 2009|
Akito Hayama and Ryo Saeba.
