I want to read all the Dragon Ball and DBZ manga because I've heard really good things.

How was Fate/Stay Night? I've heard it was pretty good.

I've also been wanting to check out Rurouni Kenshin and Gundam SEED.

Kenshin is fantastic. You should definitely check it out.

I've seen all the ones I quoted. I've also seen:

Full Metal Panic! (Not TSR, but I've seen Fumoffu too, which was eh)
I! My! Me! Strawberry Eggs
Green Green
Death Note
Fullmetal Alchemist
Excel Saga
Outlaw Star
Gunslinger Girl
Puni Puni Poemy
Saikano
Gankutsuou
Azumanga Daioh (though I love the manga more)

.hack//SIGN I have the DVDs for but I have yet to finish them. I also want to see Liminality because I saw the first OVA when I bought the first set of PS2 games but I never got to finish them because I never bought the rest.

Eden of the East I want to check out from what I saw in that trailer that was up I think in the movie thread.

Honey & Clover I've heard of and want to check out.

GTO I have all of the manga for. I haven't seen the show yet cause I heard it cuts short at like less than midway through the manga, and I think the manga's hysterical too.

Hellsing Ultimate I need to start watching finally. I have the DVDs that are released on my wishlist but I know they're missing the most recent three in America because Geneon's USA division closed down or something.

Paranoia Agent was recommended to me by TGS but I haven't seen it yet. Maybe he'll be down to watch it again with me when he comes back down from school in may.

Trigun I still have yet to finish actually. I'm retarded.

I also want to check out Gundam SEED. It'll be the first Gundam series I watch but I've heard it's good.

I started Full Metal Panic but I'm not the biggest mecha fan and eventually lost interest.

I read all of the Death Note manga so probably won't be watching the anime. It became a chore to read towards the end of the time jump. The anime probably cut out a lot of unnecessary bits. Tried watching the live action drama but it was too horrible to watch much of.

Started Full Metal Alchemist as well. Remember liking. Not sure why stopped. Think it was one of those where I was watching it week to week as it aired in Japan and just forgot to keep getting after a while.

I had a friend who kept recommending Saikano but his way of selling it to me was "the saddest thing I ever saw." Wasn't too anxious to watch.

My biggest issue with Death Note was trying to get a sub after they licensed it because they pulled it from pretty much everywhere. That and the manga ending was better from what I saw. Much better. And I always say no to live action dramas. I saw the one for GTO and that was a mess.

Saikano is actually pretty damn depressing. Seriously depressing. The other hard part about it was that for some stupid reason the sub group that put it out had like the hardest to read subs ever because they were outlined with bright neon colors. Ugh. I do recommend it though. If you only see it at least once.

Another one I want to check out that I saw the first few eps of was The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Shit was funny.

Death Note committed what I consider to be one of the cardinal sins of storytelling: killing off a character, only to replace said character with a crappier version of the old one. Overall it was pretty good, though. Death Note was the show that really got me back into anime.

And yeah, Haruhi is really good. I like how they aired the show totally out of order, as well. Plus Kyon is voiced by the same guy who voices Gintoki in Gintama, so that's cool too. Kind of in the same vein as Haruhi, but note really I guess, is Lucky Star. I find it to be relentlessly hilarious, but it's kind of...juvenile, I guess. I'd recommend it, but that's cause I have weird tastes.

As for a list of stuff I've seen(I'll probably forget a lot, but I'm trying to remember what I had pre-hard-drive-failure):

07 Ghost
A Certain Scientific Railgun
A Certain Magical Index
Bakemonogatari
Bleach
Baka to Test to Shokanju
Baccano
Black Lagoon
Buso Renkin
Cowboy Bebop
Samurai Champloo
Durarara
Darker Than Black
Death Note
D. Gray-man
Fullmetal Alchemist
FMA: Brotherhood
Gun x Sword
Gintama
Soul Eater
Sengoku Basara
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Gankutsuou
Dragonball/Z/GT/Kai
Naruto
Naruto Shippuden
Needless
One Piece
Rouroni Kenshin
Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei
Trinity Blood
Hellsing
Hellsing Ultimate
Hayate no Gotoku
The Melancholy of Huruhi Suzumiya
Trigun
Maria+Holic
xxxHolic
xxxHolic Kei

Hmm, I know I'm forgetting a ton.

Also, is it correct to assume, judging by your lists, that neither of you have seen Baccano? I strongly recommend it.

Think I saw the first ep or two of the GTO drama. I find it really hard to watch a drama of a series you already know in anime form. Was excited to see the Honey & Clover drama, being one of my favorite anime series. Absolute shit. The characters were completely unrecognizable and they changed the entire story. Again I only lasted an ep.

Nodame Cantabile is the exception. The drama is about as good or maybe better than the anime. Great exposure to classical music as well.

Two other dramas based off anime/manga I've enjoyed (without having watched the anime first) were Hana Yori Dango (which led me to actually read the entire manga run after) and Hanazakari no Kimitachi e.

Other than those I've seen a number of other dramas which weren't great. But I swear Japan only has 20 or so actors. There hasn't been a show I've seen where I wouldn't recognize another actor or two from another show.


I started The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya but I got confused by the ordering. I started watching the air order but then I went back and started watching by number order and then just gave up. I did see the end...according to one of the orders I know.

I think that only helps to bring it more into the reign of awesome. I really need to take the time and check that show out again.

FLCL is probably my favorite anime ever.

I've been keeping up with the FMA manga/watching FMA: Brotherhood. It's really good! I definitely recommend it.

Funniest manga I've ever read.. probably Azumanga Daioh!

I wish I finished up Gankutsuou since I really like The Count of Monte Cristo.

A lot of my friends tell me I should watch Lucky Star because it's "hilarious." Same with Haruhi. I'll probably try over the summer.

On another note, last summer I watched "The Girl Who Lept through Time." The story was mediocre, but the animation was really good. I'd recommend it.

Forgot about Azumanga Daioh. Added to my list.

Really enjoyed The Girl Who Lept through Time. I have the newest movie by that director sitting on my comp though have yet to watch: Summer Wars. Looks good. He also did the first couple Digimon movies and revisits his visual depiction of internet in this movie.

Wow skimming over those lists I realize I forgot about 15 animes that I've seen. Just goes to show you most anime is forgettable I guess.

Of the lists I didn't see these two listed though:

Gantz and Blue Seed

I watched Blue Seed a long time ago on the action channel when I was like 11. It was my first anime really that wasn't you know, DBZ.

Gantz was something I watched fairly recently but got bored of pretty quickly.

Also Grave of the Fireflies was FUCKED UP.
