Asking people

If you must ask people on a forum or IRC for recommendations, it's impossible to give useful answers without knowing what kind of thing you like. First check your profile to make sure your mylist and votes are publicly visible. Then give a link to http://anidb.info/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=mylist&uid=<your_uid_here> - you can find your uid number in brackets after your nick in your myplace. This should give people a rough idea of the kind of thing you're after.
