I recently started watching "One Piece". It's a kids anime show. We met some kids from Northern Japan at school and I asked one to recommend something and he said "One Piece" so I finally got around to watching it. I was addicted almost immediately. It's about a young adult (I think he's between 18 and 22) and he wants to be the world's greatest pirate. To him a pirate adventures the world and seeks treasure. He's not into plundering and stealing (though some of the other pirates in the store are). But, he's made of rubber. It's a long story how he got turned into a rubber human but you'll just have to take my word for it it's really really funny and nearly all the characters are over the top in some weird and wacky way.
For example because he's made of rubber if you shoot him the bullets just stretch through his body and then bounce back. He can also throw a punch like 100 feet. Also the first guy he recruits carries 3 samurai swords, one in each hand and one in his mouth.
I'm not sure if it will make it out in America but I hope so because it rules!!!
