People seem to forget them but the best examples I can think of are Eureka Seven, Cowboy Bebop and Trigun.
Trigun has a lot of elements that people who aren't fans of anime may find to be turn-offs but it is a good demonstration of those elements not being horribly overused/abused whilst highlighting the juxtaposition with intense plot that characterises the best anime out there.
Cowboy Bebop really speaks for itself by this point in time.
Eureka Seven is one of the best anime I've ever seen and I stand by that. At no point does it mess about with elasticated character design, it has a good moral centre and demonstrates how young main characters can be utilised in dynamic and creative ways. It is filled with giant robots, robust visuals, memorable moments and is a good example of what anime does better than every other genre in film. It places great characters inside an intriguing and evolving plot alongside strong, memorable and creative visuals.
Oh, and it is one of the few times when children are written as children. It is traditionally very difficult to write children. Film tends to go the wrong way by making them too cutsey/irritating/serious and anime falls into a lot of those pitfalls too. Eureka Seven is one of the few times when children feel genuinely distinct from adults and they deal with their problems like kids do.
(It also has a bit of corniness to it which is something found across a whole swathe of anime.)
Though I can see why you wanted to mention Fate/Zero. That image is golden.

I've never been a fan of Spice and Wolf. It is good but romance is rarely enough to get me interested in a plot and there's no mistaking that the biggest focus and strength of the series is the relationship between the leads. Oddly enough I don't mind Gosick which has a similar concept with the heart of the story focussing around the main characters interactions but it had the strength of the sleuth element backing it up.
I'd still not watch it twice, though.
Either way, all good suggestions, except perhaps for Ninja Scroll... which, if I remember correctly is the one with the woman with a snake in her cooch. I can't take that movie seriously. Perfect Blue is the one about the pop-star gone mental, right? It's a good film and I love the use of shared madness, that's so rarely utilised in film. Berserk is always a classic as is Ghost in the Shell. I prefer the remake of Vampire Hunter D to the original though and whilst I've heard good about Beck I've yet to dive into it.

That's not it at all. I love law and political matters, I simply dislike shows that revolve around a back-and-forth character dynamic. I've seen them before and I find them to be disappointingly unambitious. I see characters just as strong as those in the genre placed in far more imaginative/inventive/tense situations where the plot is more dynamic.
It just isn't the kind of story that interests me. The same with soaps and most sit-coms.
