I'll add it anyway since I like D&D (I played 2nd Ed and 3rd/3.5, currently playing 5th Edition).

The second season of Attack On Titan is great. Of course.
It was slightly better than the first.

You got a fairly good anime list @henriquejr
You will have some good times coming ahead. And welcome to the beautiful and sometimes weird world of Anime world.

From the list aka your plan a few comments:
Code Geass (2007) - overrated mediocre trash, I'd skippit
Elfen Lied (2004) - also overrated, but slightly above mediocre
Fate Stay Night - not sure which Fate(s) I did watch, it's mish mash of annoying whatnot
Robotech - for all I remember that's not anime
Steins;Gate - this one is a mustwatch nearmasterpiece! do it now please.
Sword Art Online (2012) - didn't watch it yet, apparently not as good as King's Avatar
Tales of Symphonia - you should play Tales of Berseria before watching this for better experience

I could add. But,you have a big list already.
Still,I can recommend these few.

Kill La Kill
A somewhat over the top little series. Very cool fight scenes. Has a lot of humor.
Good artstyle.

Fullmetal Alchemist - Brotherhood
For a long time I was avoiding this series. A mistake on my part. It is perfect for,getting into animes.

Koutetsujou no Kabaneri
From the creators of Attack on Titan. Not as good. But the visuals are top notch.

Death Parade
Interesting mystery/horror series.

I say watch the first Fullmetal Alchemist, then wait a couple of weeks, then watch Brotherhood.

They start the same way (about first dozen of episodes tell the same "intro" in both series) but the story branches in totally different directions. One is better than another and vice versa. To this day I cannot say which one I like more, both are fantastic.

For anime entry, firstwatch of a sort, I'd still suggest Death Note as it raises a question what would you do if you had one. Would you use it to get rid of that annoying aunt? Irritating neighbor? Evil chief? Hell half of the town that's getting on your nerves, politicians, lawyers… So many choices (and consequences) to make!
But FMA is also good, especially if one is underaged.

I'm watching Death Note on Netflix. I watched it until Episode 12:

I found 2nd Season quite as good as the 1st one. I fear telling you more about it and ending up spoiling some things

Thanks very much. I'm glad to hear that it kept up the quality.

While I don't expect Uzumaki being a part of this anime series nor I expect it'll make my brain rolling 100% like Uzumaki did, I'm already drooling!
I don't know if anyone started following this one, but so far it's a damned masterpiece. We can argue that art is simplified, but every short story hits the bullseye. It does feel as a work of love even if the budget wasn't high.
Can't praise it enough, the year couldn't start more spectacular for me.

Warning: don't binge it, take at least a day of pause between episodes.

Oh boy, watching Devilman Crybaby. Crazy stuff happening there. The first minute or so the art looked a bit simplistic, but that disappeared soon. In fact, it is quite stylized with lots of nudity and gory stuff, while (best of all) heart-pumping beats kick in all the time in the background. Not for the faint of heart but I'm enjoying it.

Did not get to watch Junji Ito Collection,yet.
Did watch Juuni Taisen,which was a good series to watch. Better than what I expected,lets say.
Hoped to see a bit more action,or more of the battle it self. But,the backstories where a nice compensation. Not complaining much.

Netflix seems to be on a mission to push the envelope. Seen the Beserk remake? I was dumbfounded with what was going on in Episode III. I won’t spoil it but wow.

I wasn't a big fan of anime but recently I watched Code Geass. I seriously couldn't get enough of it when I binged it a few summers ago. It fascinated me with its mix of political intrigue, supernatural powers, and giant robot action (with a sprinkling of high school comedy).

To this day I'm not sure why Lelouch impressed so many people. IMO the whole thing is overrated. Maybe it feels unique enough to anime newcomers?
You'll probably be happy to know Code Geass will receive the third season this or next year. No, I don't know what, why and is it a prequel or "midquel" considering the story had it's closure.

It's not Lelouch that impressed people, it was the setting, the mysteries, the enormous cast, the romance stuff, the soundtrack, the AAA voice cast* and the amazing usage of "Sunrise Tropes" (which you would only recognize if you watched previous Sunrise series).

Anime fans were hyped about the series before the first episode came out, it was Sunrise A team with one of the best anime writer and a well known director at the helm.

*they pretty much hired the most popular voice actors at the time…who only got more popular.

Just finished Clannad After Story for the first time today. I give it 9/10's for both seasons.
A Place Further Than the Universe is the best airing one I'm watching.

I watched a few episodes of the first season and dropped it soon. Dunno why is that show so popular. It's setup was not my pair of shoes, then again I can't cook.
I'm not saying the show sucks, it's just the specific theme it covers is not attractive to me.

You should play Final Fantasy 15.
