Which anime series are a must-watch?

Westerners watch the “Dragon Ball Z” series and love it. But they’re not so crazy about Japanese anime.
This is because what makes American TV shows great is realism, while a lot of Japanese anime series distract from this idea with really weird stuff that just doesn’t work in America.
Anime like “Lily and her limps”, for example, addresses topics such as gang violence (isn’t comparable to ‘Mad Men’ or ‘Breaking Bad’) and terrorism (pretty terrifying).
Those subjects don’t strike me as suitable for American audiences who are used to watching other types of television- especially those younger generations who never even dreamed reports on 9/11 would happen in their life time.
