I agree with @xelra, most proper animer ever made. I really feel like it can appeal to non-anime fans, if I had one to recommend for them it would be this one for sure. (and Monster too)

This is probably the best anime, or best show in general, ever made.

It has many detailed characters, a really deep and thoughtful story. But the most important part and what makes this a fantastic SciFi epos is its demand for realism. It gives you that feeling of "Mhmm, that could really be like that." and "Damn, why didn't I think about that.".

It's a real SciFi flick and not just another Fiction piece that gets labeled SCIENCE Fiction.
