When was the last time an anime excited you?

Following the theme of last week's Hey Answerfans, how long has it been since a commercially available(ie: licensed) anime seriously excited you? Not just something that entertained you, but something that will remain memorable (in a good way) for many years to come.

We've also snuck in a demographic question at the end.

How long has it been since a new anime was released in North America and seriously excited you when you watched it?
There's an anime currently licensed, but not yet released, that I've seen fansubed that really excites me. 1253 out of 4198 (29.8%)
