|Anime||Might enjoy if you liked...|

|Full-Metal Alchemist Brotherhood (FMA)||Mistborn, Final Fantasy|
|Sword Art Online (SAO)||Ready Player One|
|Cowboy Bebop*||Star Wars|
|Neon Genesis Evangelion (NERV Eva)|
* On my to-watch list
Miyazaki / Studio Ghibli (a.k.a. "The Classics")
I consider Miyazaki / Studio Ghibli to be its own subcategory.
I wouldn't recommend those to someone who is only casually interested in Anime. From my point of view it takes a fair investment - 3 or 4 movies - before you have enough exposure to the cultural paradigms to enjoy it
- Princess Mononoke
- Spirited Away
- My Neighbor Totoro
- Howl's Moving Castle
Then again, I think you kinda have to have seen some of these to understand the way gods and spirits
- Pacific Rim was a terrible movie, but its story was probably taken from NERV.
- Inception is pretty much the live-action adaptation of Paprika
- Haven't checked myself, but The Lion King is maybe a rip of Kimba the White Lion
- Jame's Cameron's Avatar is NOT Avatar
To Watch list
Some notes to myself of ones I want to investigate and possibly watch...
Fairy Gone - recommended by Jon. I started but didn't finish because some episodes weren't available.
There must be an anime similar to Elantris. Seems like a perfect fit.
