I stopped really watching anime around 3 or so years ago, although recently started watching a few anime shows recently, but one of the shows that I loved before I stopped watching was Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. What it lacked in logic and sense, it made up with it's epic action sequences and great characters.
On a similar note, I got Portal 2 through Steam the day it came out and freaking loved it. Such an amazing game.
Also, for those not in the know, Chell is the name of Portal's protagonist.
