Urotsukidoji is super old, it was released here in England in 1989, you may know it better as Legend of the overfiend or legend of the demon womb. It's pretty hardcore manga though so I'm just warning violence and sexual content so I won't be posting a trailer for this one.

Edit: actually the triler is pretty clean so here it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKb8mrxpFPQ

Perfect Blue maybe Black swan in US was released here in 2000 and is described as " a startling and powerful film. If Alfred Hitchcock partnered with Walt disney they'd make a picture like this". It's done by some of the people who worked on Akira and Ninja scroll and is about identity theft and pretty gritty. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0Rj7nn0ZVs

Dead Leaves is the newest of the bunch in 2004 and is by the producers of ghost in the shell. It's about earth in the near future where the only humans that remain are clones. The story is kinda hard to follow though as you're just bombarded with colour. Here's a trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YV_DY0BGscE

XXX??, yeah I suppose it deserves it, ours is just an 18 though, I think you have stricter rating systems over there, ours only goes up to 18. Have you seen it Seph?

Yep. Well XXX over here means you have to be over 18 to rent or buy it. I've seen most of those types and i have more than a few of the non violent adult anime (yeah i know what a shock right? :lol: ).

Ahhhh yes, I knew it by Legend of the Overfiend. I really categorize Hentai as being separate from Anime.

"Newer" to me is anything that was released in the late 90s and sooner.

lol. I think demon beast invasion was the first of that type i saw and frankly its a sub genre of hentai i'd rather avoid. I don't like horror anime and even less xrated horror anime. Most of the anime i get is from the dollar store and is all from the mid 90s.

Somehow I knew this thread would get into hentai eventually. Some hentai is decent...it just depends. Mystery of the necronomicon is actually pretty good and has a good story...of course, not for children. La Blue Girl freaks me out...that tentacle business is disgusting and unfortunately very popular in horror hentai. Black Gate is also decent, as is Behind Closed Doors. Again, no one under the age of 18 should be watching this stuff.

I forgot about Appleseed.
It definitely deserves a place on my list.

Some family dollar and dollar generals do, not as much as they used to. I found a bunch of anime at the Biglots chain of stores but half the time they'll have the entire series but one volume lol.

Cowboy Bebop! Greatest anime of all time! NOTHING EVEN COMES CLOSE! I'm also partial to:
Inuyasha
Cardcaptor Sakura
Pokemon
Chobits
Anything by Satoshi Kon and Miyazaki

To be honest the older i get the less i like some anime. The animation just isnt that good. Give some good ole american Animation any day (although most of those cartoons are drawn in Asia anyway) E.G.

Batman the animated series
Spongebob
The Simpsons
Animaniacs
Looney Tunes
and most of the old Disney stuff.

To be honest I had a friend that pretty much ruined me on anime....I'm finding it harder and harder to watch saturday nights on adult swim for that very reason.

Probably because teh anime adult swim shows these days is crap they know will be popular. I miss it when they showed stuff most people only knew about from fan subs and such. I forgot Big O which was thought up when the company that made it was animating Batman the animated series.
