If you're a musicfag, here have some more links:
Everyone's familiar with Josh's music.
josh's anime sheet music collection
Probably the most completely collection.
Ichigos is pretty popular as well
Ichigo's Sheet Music - Game and Anime Sheet Music
Anime Sheet Music for Piano - PandaPatrol
I recently happened across this little site. It's not in English, but it has quite a lovely collection of VN OST transcriptions.
Another useful resource
myanimelist.net - anime directory, recommendations, characters, details of anime, keep track of what you've watched, etc. often called MAL. Voting system, genre, studios, etc. Useful to find more things to watch.
anidb.net - similar to MAL
vndb.org - database for visual novels
anime-planet.com - similar to MAL. Also does manga as well. Approximates how much anime you've watched.
animenewsnetwork - useful for news/updates/information. pretty decent resource for information. encyclopedia of anime, manga, etc.
tokyotosho.info - new releases of just about everything, sometimes called TT
bakabt.com - one of the best for finding torrents that have seeders. yeah they're that good. No licensed anime/manga though. bakabt also has lots of OST collections as well.
useful for music as wel
animetake.com - from TT, also has DDL if you really want to
only if you're desperate and cannot download.
mangaupdates.com for releases
aaaaaa fuck it
Just about everything you need. onemanga is now defunct, but I think everything else about this is accurate. Disregard the parts talking about /a/, but it's a useful pictorial guide.
Really can't find anything to watch? Try these. Even sorted out by category, approximately, for your viewing pleasure. Kind of old, but still valid.
Want to read some manga? Here you go.
How about light novels?
Also, BakaBT has torrents for archived versions of the translated light novels as well
If you like visual novels, and/or want to start reading them.
Also relevant for updates and stuff
DDL site for VNs, if you don't feel like torrenting. EDIT: nevermind, since megaupload is dead, this source is now irrelevant.
