I've wanted to watch Neo-Ranga for years, or did when I was younger. Just got through the first two eps (which are 15 minutes each, a nice change of pace) and thus far, it's kind of cool because its effectively a big kaiju story.

Marathoned Eden of the East eps 3-10. Dang. Really enjoying this show. I'm also re-watching the Gunbuster/Diebuster stuff. I never actually finished Diebuster. I think I stopped at episode 4. I'm enjoying Diebuster more, but I really don't feel the two mesh well.

Finished Eden of the East, and loved the ending. Now I've got to watch the movies.

Also finish RahXephon again, gonna try and re-watch the movie, though I can't recall thinking much of it. RahXephon, for all the slight improvements it makes to the formula, still falls a little flat at times. Mostly because I've seen this all before.

Finished Gunbuster 2. Eh, it's well done, but it doesn't do much for me. I have to admit, though it was more fun to watch than the original Aim for the Top! was.

I'm considering trying to catch up on Gundam AGE, but I somehow doubt its worth my time.

Trying to catch up on Gundam Age, still not fond of the character designs, but I do like the new enemy mobile suits.

I watched the first Eden of the East movie, and I think I'm gonna have to buy the 2nd since its not on netflix. Maybe I can find a copy at Ohayocon (that isn't CRAZY expensive as dealer's room anime tends to be)

I'm also re-watching The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (which I still love), but I think the dubbed order of the episodes hurts the impact of the series compared to the original Japanese air order.

I never really considered myself a "fan" of anime, but I've always liked it. I just started watching a series on Crackle called "Blood +." Personally, I think it's great. I got completely hooked after watching three or four episodes, and I'm at episode thirteen now. Has anyone seen this? If so, what do you think?

Something about anime and vampires never clicked with me. I think I watched some of Vampire Knight (my gf used to read the manga) and it was sort of so-so. I'm not that big a fan of the two Vampire Hunter D animations or Hellsing either.

Finished Nanaka 6/17, it was a fun show.
Also finished Gunbuster & Zaion I Wish You Were Here from Netflix.

Started on Sister Princess, looks like a cute & fun show.

Of course since all the girls are cute, that helps (and as usual the dub voices are cute as well).

Is this a continuation of Blood+? If so, I might be interested.

After RyanClark mentioned getting season 3 part 2 of Sgt. Frog I've started watching the show through Funimation's website.

It's an awesome show, very funny and the dub team does a great job.

Started on To Love Ru from Netflix (DVD).
Looks pretty funny & full of fanservice.
Though I kind of wish it was dubbed.

Why is it always the total goof, that has no clue what to do with a girl (or is afraid if girls/allergic to girls/etc) that gets all the smoking hotties to fall in his lap (sometimes literally)?

Because otherwise we all know where the story would go.

I watched To Love Ru and it was pretty dumb/funny. I never checked out the second season, but it's on my list of stuff to try and watch this year.

It's great! :D

I'm watching Gundam AGE, just to have something to watch, really. I hate the character designs, but I have to say there are enough cool concepts in the show to keep me interested (even if it took like 9 episodes to do it). The downside is none of them are being utilized in ways that give them room to breathe, and sadly AGE isn't as good as 00 was.

Because I'm on a Gundam kick, I watched Eps 10-15 of Age (thus concluding the first generation's story). Well, it's meh. I don't like it as much as Gundam 00, but that's kind of obvious. The nice thing, though, is that there are two more generations to go through, so maybe the show will get better.

It's not so much terrible it's just that it doesn't make use of cool concepts and I still don't care for the character designs.

Weirdly I checked out the Gunpla anime that was to commemorate the Gunpla series I found it to be infinitely more enjoyable (despite idiotic simplicity). Which means I probably could look even further beyond the flaws of AGE if it just looked better.

Re-watching Eureka Seven and I caught episode 16 of AGE, I think I might like this a little more now...but who knows where it'll go.

Finished what Netflix had of To Love Ru. It was pretty fun for the 13 episodes.

Hopefully the rest gets brought over soon.

I recently finished Blood +, and I loved it so much I'm watching it again. I read some descriptions of Blood-C, but it didn't seem like I would enjoy it much. I'll check it out anyway, just because. I am interested in seeing the animated movie that came out before the series, Blood: The Last Vampire (I think that's the name; my mind is kind of scrambled right now), and I found it cheap. This series will definitely end up on my shelf someday; though I found that they haven't released the entire series yet.

Still slowly watching Sister Princess.

Also got Gatekeepers 21 from Netflix, pretty decent so far.

Has anybody watched any of Guilty Crown? I wasn't interest initially until I saw some animation from it. Thus far (eps 1-5) it's been pretty fun. Anybody up to date on this show, and if so, does it stay pretty decent and/or get better?

Hmmmm... last year I rewatched Eureka Seven, Trigun, and Tenchi Universe.


Right now I'm slowly making my way through rewatching Cowboy Bebop and watching Space Pirate Captain Harlock (on Hulu, also slowly).


Sherlock Hound is on Youtube. I should really watch that - Miyazaki directing several episodes and all.
