One thing I've been noticing lately, with fanservice shows specifically, is that it seems like some of them are going the extra mile to be good shows, even if as just good action shows.  High School of the Dead is a perfect example, it's a legit zombie show, with great action, likable characters and admittedly minimal plot, but it is also loaded to the gills with constantly gainaxing boobs, panty shots, and pervyness.  Strike Witches is another example, titties and panties galore, but it's also a shockingly good sci-fi/alt history war anime.

I'll give HSotD another shot then. I troped Strike Witches and it actually looks pretty good.

Finished Serial Experiments Lain. Good, but not quite as baffling as it's made out to be; it more just has that hard-to-put-into-words quality about it.

Also, for no reason, I'm including this image of Wikipedia anthropomorphised. Kinda odd that Wikipedia is (apparently) that young, especially when you consider that it/she has literally hundreds of articles on sex, pornography, various crimes...

Serial Experiments Lain - If "mind fuck" were in the dictionary, this show would be in the description.

Ha, we were just watching this last night and calling it super mind-fucky. And I enjoy a healthy dose of that, for sure.

An old friend of mine used to call weird anime endings "Lain-ish."

Seen Evangelion and Rahxephon to the end? That's a slightly different, but still interesting type of mindfuck.

I started watching Planetes today.  It's interesting so far, but Tanabe can be quite annoying.

Is it on youtube?
Matthew 22:39 "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." God's own "don't be a dick" rule.

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.

I've been following Persona 4: The Animation, and I just started Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Persona 4 has been excellent so far, with a good balance of humor, action, heartwarming moments, and sheer creepiness. I haven't played the game, but my friend who has tells me it's a great adaptation.

I avoided the first Fullmetal Alchemist thanks to overhype from people I knew, but I really, really like Brotherhood.

Oh, and Hellsing Ultimate, but that got a little too icky for my taste around Episode V.
Edit: Maybe it was IV... Alucard fought Rip Van Winkle and The Major went on a creepy 5 minute rant about war.

Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni!
Brutal mindfuckery, followed by heartwarming friendship.
That said, I've stopped trying to anticipate what people around here want a while ago, I've found it makes things smoother.

Ah, Higurashi. You know, I personally loved it at first, but after a while it got a little repetitive for me. It's good but it's not great, IMO.

Yeah, but c'mon. She's about 4, and surely there are limits?*

CtraK, this is the internet, and she's anime.  Your idea of "limits" is therefore absurd.
