[thechat] Next Anime Step?

Hi Folks,

I don't know how all the 'old movie' talk resparked my fledging interest in 
anime ... but it did.

After finding DVD copies of 'Plan 9 from Outer Space' and 'Attack of the 
Killer Tomatoes' for my sister ... I started looking at the anime offerings 

I have Princess Mononoke (Stunning), Spirited Away (Simply Outstanding), 
Kiki's Delivery Service (not up with the 1st two - but still pretty good fun), 
and Castle in the Sky (which I don't really care for very much).

I was thinking along the lines of Cowboy Bebop - the Movie, Ghost in the Shell, 
and maybe Akira.

(Grave of the Fireflies sounded a little too depressing.)

Decent choices as a next step?  Or is there something better I should be 
considering?  Evangelion? (Which the heck one?) Ninja Scroll?   ???

<bonus question>
Are these Amazon 'zShop' things for real? Offering a 7 disc Cowboy Bebop set 
for $35?? (The 'normal' Amazon link is 6 discs for $99 vs retail of $180.)
