Haha yeah common sense to put in my favorite genres and such oops. I don't really watch much anime and have recently been trying to get into it so i don't really have that much of a preference on genres but from the anime I've seen my favorites so far are E7, Baccano!, Berserk, FLCL, Tiger and Bunny, and Cowboy Bebop.

Well, I went looking through the list of stuff and found a good starting point for shows to look into. It's in whatever order I happened to write them down in :D

Eden of the East (although the movies will push it above $25), Mahoromatic (full metal maid + I'm Home), Boogiepop Phantom, Last Exile, Elfen Lied, Chrono Crusade, Ouran High School Host Club, Pumpkin Scissors (the series just "ends" so if you don't like that, steer clear), Welcome to The NHK, Rahxephon, Rozen Maiden.

And for good measure, here's the items saved in my cart that meet that criteria:
No. 6, Allison & Lilia, A-Channel

Not sure why everyone is hating on S2 of Gunslinger Girl. It introduces some strange changes like art and VA in S2, but I didn't find the animation or story to be that terrible. Note I've never read the manga, so maybe that's where the hate comes from. It's not as great as S1, but I enjoyed it. I only bought the blu ray versions, no experience with DVD versions.

Any reason to get this if you own :dvd:GITS:SAC S1+S2 + :br:Solid State Society? I mean, a whole season wrap up in 2hrs seems like it misses a lot, yeah?

Since :br:Individual 11 may pop up in Day 11/12, same question? :D


I had picked it up just to see some of SAC on blu-ray, but so much of the story was removed, it was an unsatisfactory viewing experience, so I would say skip them.

You get a +1 for the Rose avatar though. :)

Princess Tutu was a great anime. I thought the choice of music was excellent.

If it wasn't then that was pretty much half the anime. ;D

I agree. S1 is way better, but S2 is still worth a watch. Triela and Claes get more screen time in S2 <3

I also found S2 to be be good on its own merits despite the lesser quality of animation when put up against season 1 (one of Madhouse's best looking). The story actually hews closer to the manga, which I started picking up in newer omnibus format after watching both anime seasons. And I especially welcome (ymmv) the focus on Triela/Hilshire vs. Pinnochio. Other things like J. Michael Tatum taking over as va for Hilshire are an even trade at worst.

Yeah that's what I thought. I bought Eureka 7 Vol. 3, 6, 9, and 10 special editions a few days ago because they were dirt cheap. Looked for the other volumes but they are really expensive so I guess I'll bite on collection 1 and hopefully get collection 2 for a good price later on.

Hellsing Ultimate is worthwhile? Really? Unless they completely changed it from the last volume of the manga, which made no fucking sense and threw everything out the window in a rush to get it done then I'd beg to differ.

Like with any list you can't make everyone happy,considering everyone has a different opinion. This list does forget a lot of stuff like with any list, but is mostly solid if you ask me.

I can't comment on the ending, but I can say that what I've seen leading up to it so far is fucking superb. Hellsing is supposed to not make sense. It would just be weird otherwise... haha

I don't remember when I bought Noein but I really love that show.

Also, my wife went on rightstuf to buy me Clannad and After Story on bluray for X-Mas while logged in as me. I got an email saying my order was received even though I never put one through. :D I'll still acted surprised.

Does anyone know if the Moribito blu ray is an improvement over the dvd?


I know this was two days ago, but I don't think anyone has replied to this. I don't own the dvds for this show, but the Blu-Ray looks amazing, I would suggest buying it if you really liked the show and will watch it again.

Hellsing ultimate is not yet finished...... and at the time of the pic upload it was at 8 [10(final) is coming in a few weeks] and up through 8 it is quite entertaining.

When I saw claymore on the list I was skeptical, but I like the 1-2 sentence blurbs about each anime, nice share.

Thank you for posting the list, I appreciate it. I'm constantly looking for anime recommendations, but I haven't had time to look through lists and figure out what I might be interested in. I tried to do this last night and earlier today based on what Rightstuf has for sale and didn't get too far.

That said... I've watched a few animes a number of times (Ghost in the Shell and Ninja Scroll probably more than any others) and seen Akira, Tekkon Kinreet, Princess Mononoke, Paprika, Blood: The Last Vampire, Spirited Away and Castle of Cagliostro at least once each. I own, but have yet to watch: Samurai Champloo, Sword of the Stranger, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Nausicaa and Casshern Sins. There are probably a few titles I'm forgetting, but these are the ones I remember off-hand. I love Ghost In The Shell, Tekkon Kinkreet, Blood, and Spirited Away, but didn't like Paprika, and the pacing/story of Princess Mononoke is a bit dull for me. Also, as much as I like Ninja Scroll, the gratuitous sex and violence is a bit much.

Based on the plot of Freedom, I think I'd enjoy that quite a bit, as well as the Soul Eater series and possibly Appleseed (not sure if I should go with both films, or just try Ex Machina). I considered Grave of the Fireflies, but it just seems really depressing, and for some reason, I recall ruling out 5 Centimeters Per Second this time last year when Buy.com had their sale.

If anyone would be able to provide additional recommedations based on this post, I'd really appreciate it. I'm always looking for more intellectually-stimulating (and fun!) anime. Thanks in advance for any ideas/recommendations 8-)

They are on one of the T1-3 lists. Only $10 off as a bundle, it seems. Its Aniplex, so wont be a huge discount.

I loved the first Appleseed and the music is awesome, have the album. Appleseed Ex Machina :br: gets really cheap often, so that's an easy pick with no regret. I have the :dvd:Steelcase LE of Appleseed, never could find a good price on the :br:. I'd recommend both. DVD of Appleseed is so cheap used. Camel shows :br: of Ex Machina down to $9.99, that's when I got it but it's only $11.49 right now, beating Rightstuf.

More recommendations that I did not see on that list, but I enjoyed and thought I'd share maybe someone else does too: Zone of the Enders and Star Ocean EX. ZoE is only the same universe as the video game, it's a prequel and there is no need to have played the game. Star Ocean on the other hand, is basically the first 2 (of 4) discs of the PS1 game. Problem is they never brought it back for a 2nd season so I'm sad :( I've heard they did 5 JP voice CDs with same VA's to finish it, but I need subtitles, heh.

Edit: Barrels.
