Akira
Ninja Scroll
Pokemon
Lain

One deck in Netflix Queue:

Doh forgot Trigun, it's on the Queue. And the Kids have the DVD with the Hamtaro Christmas special on it, but thanks for reminding me.

If she likes chobits ... hmmm, anything else by clamp should be alright. Maria-sama ga Miteru is pretty good shoujo. Hmm, what else ... ohhhh Honey and Clover, you'll enjoy that.

Oh, and watch Kino no Tabi because it is that damn awesome.

Hmm, one last thing, you can try the anidb, or animeplanet. Animeplanet has a recommendations database so it should be more useful to you.

Have you seen Samurai Jack?

Ghost in the Shell is good, as is Samurai Champloo.

Tenchi has several series that I can't recall but they're cute.

Check into the Hack.-- series also.

shojo eh? Very Happy

His and Her Circumstances, Marmalade Boy, Hana Yori Dango, Saikano, Kodocha, Fushigi Yuugi, Rayearth, Love Hina, Honey and Clover, Suzuka, Paradise Kiss...hrmm that should keep you busy for awhile. Don't forget to watch Tokyo Godfathers, it's a Christmas requirement...and you are also required to get Densha Otoko the live action. You will NOT be disappointed.
(note: some of the above mentioned are fansub only)

Ruroni Kenshin.

The Series, as long as it sticks to the story arcs, is awesome! The US releases included a bit too much filler material (fluff), though...

The movies are also good. They have a much darker tone, though.

The fact that he has Ranma 1/2 in the queue should keep him busy FOREVER.

If she likes Chobit, she'll probably like Steel Angel Kurumi. Same kinda Blade Runner "Can artificial humans love" kinda twist.

Personally, I enjoyed Onegai Teacher and Onegai Twins (as well as Girls Bravo) - even though they're mainly eye candy for the guys, the Japanime writers just can't help leavening their fun with a serious twist or two to the storyline. You just have to have the patience to get past the adolescent humor.

I also highly recommend Irresponsible Captain Tylor. Oh, and if by "Miyazaki (everything availble in the US)" you mean the Disney versions, drop the $40 for the Studio Ghibli archive set (that's how much I paid for mine on eBay). Its subtitles are more than adequate (if you're watching dubbed, chances are you're missing inflection and meaning that were in the original tracks - even if you have to read the subtitles to catch the words, the emotion comes through), and its pretty much everything. Don't forget The Cat Returns, which isn't Miyazaki but is from Studio Ghibli.

Hellsing, Escaflowne, and Samurai Champloo are all sure winners. I'd make sure you throw them on your list, as I recommend them highly. You have Cowboy Bebop listed... have you seen the movie? If not, it's worth picking up.

Also, don't bother with Outlaw Star. The ending was forced, and it had some of the worst character development I've ever seen.
