Recommend me some good anime

Right now I'm looking for some good anime that'll get me by until October/November(not gonna elaborate), so right now I'm using the time to catch up on anime I never finished watching and anime I'd like to try, as of now I plan on watching Sailormoon and Hokuto no Ken, but I'd still like to try out more

What I'm looking for(any of the following):
- No mainstream Shonen anime:Yeah I went there, don't expect me to be interested in shows like Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, etc.(either because I've already tried them and didn't care, or they're way too long for me)
- Some good old school anime(70's at the earliest)
- Magical Girl anime(I really liked Cardcaptors, so I want to try more from the genre)
- Mecha: Any kind will suffice, but I tend to look forward to ones like Big O and Gurren Lagann
- Any more you liked that you want to recommend

It would help If I knew what you where looking for / what you have already seen but nonetheless:

If you're into Action / Supernatural:

Darker Than Black and Black Rock Shooter
Darker than Black has one of the most compelling stories you'll ever see. If you have any soul I would definitely recommend you watch it.

Black Rock Shooter, while it only has an eight eight episode series, and an OVA alongside it, it's very interesting, and definitely worth watching

If you're into Crime / Mystery thriller:

Death Note and Higurashi: When They Cry
Death Note is good. Very compelling in multiple ways, and it just never lets up, always keeps you interested.

When They Cry is ****ing deep story. Very disturbing sometimes, but it's very enthralling.

If you are looking for something cutesy/funny/uplifting:

Azumanga Daoih or Lucky Star
Not much too say about those ones, but they're both pretty funny.

But guys he said he wanted some Old school anime in the magical girl & mecha genre. Everything you two have mentioned came out in the past 5 years or so, and as far as my knowledge goes none of it is magical girl or mecha. HMPH. (Although everything except [imo] Azumangah Daoih & Sword Art Online is pretty good)

Except maybe that Astro Fighter thing. I've never heard of that. Unfortunately I don't like mecha or magical girl anime a lot, so I definitely won't be able to give you any names for some of the old school stuff. I will however give you a couple of good ones that I've seen from recent times which at least fit into the genre you requested;

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica - one of the best anime of 2011. Slow first couple of episodes but once you get into the story it's fantastic. Pretty hard to understand if you don't pay attention mind.

Guilty Crown - A lot of people don't like this because of the ending, but I like it. It's a mecha, the story is decent. The first half is eh, but I really enjoyed the 2nd half, and the soundtrack is amazing. I think it's a lot like Code Geass apparently.

You can if you have no feelings for your fellow classmates.

Okay me neither.

I recommend Revolutionary Girl Utena, if you haven't already seen it. The directer, Kunihiko Ikuhara, also directed the first 4 seasons of Sailor Moon. =)
