I've been reading "Deadman Wonderland" and "High School of the Dead" at OneManga.
IMO - They've been fairly good.
I watch anime when it gets shown here (Australia). ABC2 has shown a few shows during the past couple of years - Noein, Ergo Proxy, Afro Samurai, Death Note & Code Geass. The cable network has also shown a few shows on different channels - Black Lagoon, Fullmetal Alchemist, Naruto, GITS SAC & Blood+.
IMO - They have all been pretty good (Fullmetal Alchemist is my favourite show).
Anime shows are usually different to the Manga, so I can't necessarily recommend the books, but I would suggest that people watch the shows I've listed above.
