009-1 (TV) Very good
Quite a good show. Old school styling with modern day effects. Besides that though it is an interesting take on an alternate history of the Cold War if it had not ended. Super spys are the order of the day, and any fan of James Bond-esque type movies will find enjoyment out of this series.
3x3 Eyes (OAV) Good
This DVD has massive amounts of noise that are not present on the second part. They were made earlier than the second part so maybe the masters were just that bad, I don't know. Anyway I consider the first and second parts to be one show.
3x3 Eyes Seima Densetsu (OAV) Good
The animation on this part is much better, and even though it is only three episodes, much more character development takes place. This show has little something for everyone; action, love, fantasy, and monsters. Overall, when watch together it is an enjoyable experience.
5 Centimeters Per Second (movie) Excellent

Slow but very beautiful. It is a slice of life that everyone has most likely felt, even without going through a long distance relationship. Can't say it is really for everyone, but I really liked it. On a side note, imagine if all backgrounds on anime looked this good. Wow!

AD Police Files (OAV) Good
Inherently much more violent and perverted than Bubblegum Crisis this version suffers most in the fact that the stories are too short for the amount of depth that is needed. Animation wise it has some beautiful moments, but overall it is not as crisp as BC, especially the third episode. Still worth a look, but I think its cousin Parasite Dolls does a much better job stylistically.
Agent Aika (OAV) Decent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

In the same vein as Najica Blitz Tactics, though I guess this came before. In the end I don't think it is as effective, as it just becomes a mess of fanservice but never draws you in on an emotional level. Still pretty to look at and has some great action. Still though, something just didn't click as well as other similar shows do for me.

Ah! My Goddess (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4

Pretty much an all around quality show. Some might say it is just another harem type, but it really doesn't fall into those trappings. Like it actually has a story, and even focuses on relationships instead of frustratingly beating around the bush in a circle going nowhere. Okay it beats around a bush a little bit, but nowhere near as much as many in the same category. With the exception of Skuld in a few episodes all the characters are very likeable, including design wise. Remarkably, many of the stories also hit on an emotional level as well. And the well done animation doesn't hurt either.

Ah! My Goddess: Flights of Fancy (TV) Very good

Like the first one, this is a fine series. With even better animation and concise storytelling. It deviates from the first in that there is not a long overall story, besides the love affair that is. So each episodes is basically its own mini story, but they are done very well. I would say that this installment doesn't quite measure up to the emotional notes of the first series, but it's still a lot of fun.

Ah! My Goddess: The Movie Very good

A lovely movie that just jumps right into things, so you may want to at least watch the OAV or the TV series beforehand. Like most movies it has a 'save the world' plot, but the pace isn't too fast nor is it bogged down. I would say the ending suffers slightly from a bunch of techno babble that makes little sense, and therefore makes it somewhat confusing. But overall a very nice movie.

Ai Yori Aoshi (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4

A lovely series which can be both funny and heart-warming.

Ai Yori Aoshi ~Enishi~ (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
AIKa R-16: Virgin Mission (OAV) Decent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1

Sort of a prequel I guess to Agent Aika. It is very pretty, and if you liked the first one you will like this one too. Even though it is three episodes it does tell a pretty complete story in the time it has. That is if you can handle the panties.

Akira (movie) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4

A classic to be sure. From what I understand it is nothing compared to the manga. However it is a great movie none the less. And it certainly doesn't look like it was made in the eighties either. It looks great in fact. If you like style and mature themes be sure to check it out.

Alien Nine (special) Excellent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Bizarre but also very beautiful. Engrossing in just about every way if not a bit ambiguous. And through all the quirkiness it still seems to pull off a very "cool" style. It really should be viewed as a movie in four parts, and not as four episodes. With a bit of maturity as well.

Well done, Well written, and fun to watch. The concept may be a about children, for children, but the story can touch anyone. People who don't like this show are counter-productive in general. :P

Appleseed (OAV) So-so
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Appleseed (movie) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Armitage III: Poly-Matrix (movie) Excellent
Off-site reviews:1, 2

All around pretty good movie, Dub only, but that doesn't take away anything in this case. If you like Ghost in the Shell, you most likely will enjoy this. They are different but the same. And even goes down some avenues where you wish GitS would go. Unlike some others, I found this movie to have a unique point of view or at least an interesting take, and to be highly entertaining.

Armitage: Dual-Matrix (movie) Very good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Would have gotten a masterpiece but some action scenes were left unexplained, and you just can't do that in an action movie. Also you may need to see the OVAs to fully get the whole story.

Avenger (TV) Weak
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

This show is a train wreck on so many levels. Some shows can be vague, yet make you care about the characters. This isn't one of them. Also, how many slow panning still shots must one endure? This show is cheap and generic on almost all accounts. Has a few good fights, and the background art can be very pretty.

Ayakashi - Samurai Horror Tales (TV) Very good
Off-site reviews:1, 2

Divided up into three stories, however they are not all equal in my eyes. The first, Goddess of the Dark Tower is interesting and very pretty. I would rate it between good and very good. The second, the Yotsuya Ghost Stories, is tedious and forgettable. I would rate it between so-so and decent. The third, the Goblin Cat is unique and deviceful. I would rate it between very good and excellent.

Azumanga Daioh (TV) Very good

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Sora Mimi Cake.
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

A fun and quarky comedy. Not to mention cute. This show will bring back memories, both good and bad.

Basilisk (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7; Off-site reviews:1

Pretty characters, some nice fights and good action. It really loses it's way though because it's so darn predictable.

Battle Angel (OAV) Good
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Does no justice to the manga in which it is based on. This is in large part because it is so short. But it is also the only way to see her animated. I wouldn't say they are bad per se, each story does a relatively good job in progressing itself, it is just a typical short OAV, no closure, no real build up. Even so, it is a must see for fans of the manga, just for seeing her in action. The animation is pretty good for its time, and of course the art is great.

Berserk (TV) Very good
(The) Big O (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2
Big Wars (movie) Good
Birdy the Mighty (OAV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2

All around entertaining. Although it has a simple and strait forward story, it goes over each area well, and doesn't linger to much on one thing. Not to mention Birdy has a cute grin.

Birth (OAV) So-so
Black Blood Brothers (TV) Good
Black Lagoon (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1

A great and rather rough action series. Although the events that take place are rather unlikley, there is just enough realism to put you in the characters shoes. A show which everyone is a bad guy, you find yourself pulling for the slick pirates, and the trouble they always find.

Blade of the Phantom Master (movie) Very good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1

This is an action title that is not only pleasing to the eyes, but actually has a nice flow to it as well. Many times action titles have a sort of knee jerk feeling as you progress through the story. However this one seems to keep things interesting enough to actually care where the show is going. Say what you want about the plot, it's not supposed to be deep or intellectual, but it works. Also besides the beautiful animation, it has one of the most badass female characters I have yet to see in anime. That's right, she's up there folks. Close your eyes and imagine the things your ideal female badass can do. She's not far off.

Bleach the Movie: Memories of Nobody Very good
Blood Reign: Curse of the Yoma (OAV) Decent

Has some interesting fights, or should I say some of the moves are pretty neat. Some of the evil character designs are genuinely scary. It's not bad, but decent is about the highest rating this should be allowed to have.

Blood+ (TV) Very good

At it's heart it is really just a pure drama. Although sometimes it can even bog down on the emotional way to much for it's own good. The fact that it has some nice action scenes is really just icing on the cake. The animation can get somewhat shaky during some of the middle episodes, but otherwise it is really pretty. And when the drama works out right, it works out great.

Blood: The Last Vampire (movie) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

To me this movie is all about style. And it has plenty of it, along with gorgeous animation. Just don't look for much more and you will enjoy it much more.

Blue Gender (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

At first it just seems like a another chessy monster invades Earth flick. But it turns out it has a fairly deep plot line as well. A well executed anime, just when you start to lose interest it changes in small ways to keep things interesting.

Blue Gender: The Warrior (movie) Not really good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Why? Why? Why? It took everything that the series did and made a C movie out of it. And thats giving a complement.

Blue Seed (TV) Good
Off-site reviews:1, 2

Blue Seed is one of those shows that just sort of looks bad on its surface, but once you actually watch it, it's pretty good. I will say it is somewhat of a classic anime storyline, however the story is dynamic enough to keep things interesting.

Blue Submarine No.6 (OAV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Boogiepop Phantom (TV)
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Bottle Fairy (TV) So-so
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

I am not sure what the target demographic is for this show. All I know is I am not part of it. I also don't think the target is seven year olds either. And I will just leave it at that.

Boys Be... (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4

This is a romance anime told from the perspective of three guys. Each kind of goes through their own thing, and what it is to be in love. It is realistic in the sense that it is not just each one of them chasing after one girl, but a whole host of relationships, till they find one that is comfortable. The art and animation are pretty standard but the story is touching.

Bubblegum Crash (OAV) Good
Three more stories, and they are fun to say the least. It's basically a whole other story divided into three parts. If you enjoyed the original then you will enjoy this.
Bubblegum Crisis (OAV) Very good
A classic to be sure, and even after all this time the animation still looks great. Not to throwback or anything, but it really show what many anime are missing today. Cinematic style. Each of these eight episodes tells a different story, although they are all somewhat related, with the first three being the most related. Every one of these is like watching a movie, and most of them are pretty good too.
Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040 (TV) Very good
Certainly more cohesive than the original story. It also focuses on all of the Knight Sabers instead of just a couple. The animation is crisp and clean, with only a few examples where things look over simplified. I would say a downside is it sometimes follows some predictable situations, but it throws some surprises too. If you have seen a Bubblegum anime and liked it, there really is no good reason not to watch this.
Burn Up Excess (TV) Decent
Okay this has some good episodes, but it is also pretty scatterbrained. And when I say scatterbrained I don't mean dumb, though it certainly is that. I mean it just jumps all over the place between trying to be serious and trying to be funny. It can be quite funny, and some of the action is great, but the flow between the two needs some work.
Burn Up! (OAV) Good
This is one of those OVAs that everyone loves to rag on. Lots of boobs, guns and explosions. It's also pretty fun, and worth the time it takes to watch this short video. The animation is pretty decent as well. And the slapstick they throw in seems to strike a good balance.
Burn-Up Scramble (TV) So-so
Scramble just confounds the problems of the first two and makes it all the more evident. If I had to make a number one complaint, then I would have to say that the plot is just strung along so sloppily. There is also something going on with the characters movements, sometimes they look good, but most of the time they look unnatural.
Burst Angel (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Very visually appealing. I wish the boobs would stay the same size though, seems like they get bigger and bigger, then all of a sudden shrink in some scenes. They can keep them big, but sometimes it was too unrealistic. Besides being pretty, the story has it ups and downs as well. It is a fun anime though, and plenty of action to go around.

Castle in the Sky (movie) Very good
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Chance Pop Session (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2

A heart-warming story. A no-holds barred look at the pop industry as well. At least from a wanna-be idol looking in stand-point. But not totally realistic either. Will hold your interest till the end.

(Le) Chevalier D'Eon (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2

I believe it is best to think of this as a fable with some historical background. Getting to know the characters and watch them change is what makes this a pleasure to watch. That aspect was carried off, very well I think. The character designs and costumes are beautiful. Animation is mostly excellent.

Chibits (special) Good
Off-site reviews:1

A cute, short spinoff of Chobits. If you like the small ones then you have to see this.

Chobits (TV) Very good

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Let Me Be With You.
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

While entertaining, this belongs to a genre that often gets bogged down on itself, making for an almost boring experience. I am happy to say that isn't the case with this one. It's hard to explain, but the story does draw you in.

Chrono Crusade (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1, 2

A very well told story, a very well drawn story. While it moves along nicely, some of the characters deserved more screen time, but I guess that couldn't be helped.

Claymore (TV) Excellent
While the ending is controversial, especially for fans of the manga, I think when judged in its own right and as a whole this is an excellent series. It's got action, drama, and is beautifully drawn. I thought I wouldn't like it as much as I did, but once I started watching it, it was hard to stop.
Colorful (TV) So-so
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2

How do you feel when you see panties? Do you pant, sweat, fantasize and screem on the inside? Even sometimes? If you do you may relate to this anime.

Comic Party (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Cowboy Bebop (TV) Masterpiece

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Greenbird, Rain. The Real Folk Blues.
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

It is a masterpiece due to its excellence in execution. Some people always point out that it has weakly strung together plot, and the series is episodic. Well then this is the best "monster of the week" show there is then. Despite the fact that its dripping in style, and music, Cowboy Bebop pulls you into its futuristic world. You care about the characters as they act, well, human. And don't think this is all just a mindless action series, there are some tearjerkers in play as well.

Cowboy Bebop: The Movie Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

A great movie. Entertaining, everything you would expect from the Bebop universe. Why they don't make more Bebop prequel's and interquel's I will never know.

Crest of the Stars (TV) Masterpiece
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Space drama the way it is supposed to be. Little to no sex fanservice, well constructed plot, clash of cultures. It is fun at some times, and tragic at others. I wish there were more anime like this, if you know of any please tell me.

The only down side to this anime is by the end you will start to think girls with pointy ears are cute. :)

Cromartie High School (TV) Very good
Crying Freeman (OAV) Not really good
Cyber City Oedo 808 (OAV) Good
Dai-Guard (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

I got to tell you I was surprised by this one. I don't know if it was the cover art or the silly premise, but I was expecting it to be a peice of crap. But it turns out to be pretty good. Even if a little predictable, it is still entertaining, and not as cheesy as one would expect.

Daphne in the Brilliant Blue (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1
Darker than Black (TV) Excellent
Darkside Blues (movie) Decent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Has some good eye candy. And if it would have explained things a little better, it would have turned out better.

Dead Girls (OAV) Good
It is one of the more inventive ending OVA's out there, and it definitely adds something to the show besides the usual fanservice. Although it has that too. But there is an actual story that is interesting. At times it can be too silly though, and in that way it brings the end of Red Garden down. Still one of the better ending OVA's though.
DearS (TV) Decent
Death Note (TV) Very good

To me, not as good as the manga. Even though it follows the manga very closely, there is something to me that just works better as a manga. With that said the animation is gorgeous, and for those who would rather not read it, I would suggest the anime in a heartbeat. Keep in mind that although the anime will always try to make things exciting, the core of the story is still people sitting around talking.

Demon City Shinjuku (OAV) Decent
Off-site reviews:1, 2

Has some interesting battles in it, and an ending as well as some terrifying imagery.

Descendants of Darkness (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews1

Was looking like a good ending, and screecheecech. Replay button.

Destiny of the Shrine Maiden (TV) Not really good
Devil Hunter Yohko (OAV) So-so

Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Ep.5 is probably my favorite. Made over a five year time period, quality goes up each episode.

Devil Lady (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Great no thought horror. I enjoyied it.

Diamond Daydreams (TV) So-so
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Dirty Pair (OAV) Decent
About as episodic as you can get, but that's not a bad thing. It's fun, standard, violent, sexy action from the 80's and 90's. Downside, it's standard and predictable. Still worth popping in for a random episode from time to time.
Divergence Eve (TV) So-so
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2

It had a lot going for it, and a lot going against it. Shame really.

DNA² (TV) Good

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Blurry Eyes, Single Bed.
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

This one has some real laugh out loud moments. A good time in general. The length of this is perfect as well, as it wraps things up before they get boring.

DNA² (OAV) Good
Off-site reviews:1

Puts a real ending on the TV series. While a little bare bones, it's still a good time, although these last three are very much more in a serious manner.

Doki Doki School Hours (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1
Dominion Tank Police (OAV) Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

The last two parts really shine. However, the work as a whole builds an effective atmosphere, and one that overall will be enjoyed.

Doomed Megalopolis (OAV) So-so
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1
Dragon Ball (TV) Decent

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Mysterious Adventure.
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Certainly one of the best turn off your brain, turn on the fun anime out there. It can't be denied the impact on the US market either.

Dragon Ball Z (TV) Decent

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Fighter, Tapion.
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Same as my comments for Dragonball. Only I would add that it is even more drawn out out and you get the "hurry up and wait" feeling.

Dragon Half (OAV) Decent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Funny, but has a lot of 'in the know' jokes. And sometimes they just don't work. Good light hearted fun though.

Dragon Knight: Wheel of Time (OAV) Decent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1

The character designs in this were really neat I think. Though that might just be my soft spot for fantasy styling. The story itself is pretty jumpy though, and since this is an edited version of a hentai it is easy to account for those jumps. Still it watchable for the eye candy alone.

Eden's Bowy (TV) Good
Elfen Lied (TV) Very good

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Lilium.
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4
Ellcia (OAV) So-so

Don't be fooled by the ADV cover art. The show is not that crisp looking. While the show itself does have some good points it is hard to look past many of the bad ones.

Ergo Proxy (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6: Off-site reviews:1

Such a stylish anime, and a dark one at that. When in a world filled with black it makes the colors that do appear so much more vibrant. Although there is plenty of action to go around, this is mostly a psychological series. And as far as apocalyptic stories go I can't think of one more beautiful, both visually and audibly.

Escaflowne: The Movie Very good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone (movie) Excellent
Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance (movie) Excellent

ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Brilliantly hilarious. Unabashedly boisterous. And completely nuts.

Fafner (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews1

Can be confusing at times, actually a lot of the time it can be. Even with that though, the show ends up with some very touching moments. The characters designs may not be for everyone, but the animation is top notch.

Fate/stay night (TV) Very good
All told it has a fairly standard story as far as anime goes. I think succeeds in it's execution though. The animation is decent, but not great. The character designs are mostly well done, with some exceptions. But I found myself going through these episodes pretty quickly to anticipating what comes next, and that's got to count for something right.
Fight!! Spirit of the Sword (OAV) Not really good
Off-site reviews:1

It's short, the animation isn't that great, and the story is left hanging. It's not that it is really bad, just that it isn't really good.

Fighting Fantasy Girl Rescue Me: Mave-chan (OAV) Decent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1

Basically a a big otaku fantasy come to life, with some references to Stratos 4 and Yukikaze. Not really much to offer other than cute girls in neat outfits. But then again, it's only 30 minutes long, so that's pretty much what it is setting out to do.

Figure 17 (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (movie) Very good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Should probably see this on technical merits alone. The story is ok, but is mostly just action, which is what this set out to do, so I guess that's okay. Not really Pixar level, but excellent none the less.

(The) Five Star Stories (movie) Good
FLCL (OAV) Very good

ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4
Fruits Basket (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

In my opinion a classic story of a stranger bringing a family closer together. And a very well made one I might add. Put together in such a way that it is a breeze to watch. It has a little something for everyone, but at the same time doesn't do it in a stereotypical way. Or at least it feels that way.

Full Metal Panic! (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Great scifi action, with a hint of comedy thrown in. One of the good things about this series is that the plot always seems to move forward in a way that makes sense. It gives a good amount of background on all the major players, and despite a lot of nonsense remains rather realistic compared to most anime. The animation is way above average. And of course all the women look great.

Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid (TV) Very good
Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Pure comedy with the characters of the first series. I must say it works rather well. Despite the ever present clichés, it has it's laugh out loud moments.

Fullmetal Alchemist (TV) Excellent

Galaxy Angel (TV) Decent

ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2

The episodes can be pretty hit or miss. But when they hit they can be very funny. Lack of any plot at all brings it down a bit, but it is still a good time

Galaxy Angel A (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1

Parody doesn't even start to describe it. As with the others, it is just a whole lot of fun. It is a hit or miss thing, but it never strays to far off the mark. If it did, then you probably didn't know what you were getting yourself into.

Galaxy Angel S (special) Decent

A riot as usual. And the girls act so darn cute as usual.

Galaxy Angel Z (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2

I actually thought this was an all around better flowing show than the first. And I thought it was more funny as well. It also had a couple of episodes that were slightly serious and gave just more depth to the whole idea really.

Galaxy Fraulein Yuna (OAV) Not really good
Galaxy Fraulein Yuna Returns (OAV) So-so
(The) Galaxy Railways (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2

A high quality space opera. And like all good space operas it is also quite tragic.

Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo (TV) Masterpiece
A rare anime in which both style and substance are present. The episodes flow nicely into each other, always advancing the story, and once you start watching it is hard to stop.
Gantz (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Gasaraki (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Pretty good, but can get quite boring at times. The pacing is just plain off throughout the whole show.

Genshiken (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1
Genshiken (OAV) Excellent
Genshiken 2 (TV) Excellent
Getbackers (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Just a whole bunch of fun with this one. And there is nothing they can't get back!

Ghost Hunt (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2

This has clear arcs of stories that range from one to five episodes. A few of them are even scary, but all of them are entertaining. It's kind of a lame name I know, but once you start watching Ghost Hunt it is very easy to get into. The animation is above average, the character designs are cute, but could use some work, but more than anything watch it for the fun factor. it's a very enjoyable series.

Ghost in the Shell (movie) Excellent

Ghost Talker's Daydream (OAV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1
Giant Robo (OAV) Decent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Ranging from a classic to modern phenom in time period. The animation quality will also vary accordingly. From show to show it just seems piece together with little to no explanation. However it is fun, and its good out weighs its bad. Also some very well used themes can be found here.

Gilgamesh (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, Off-site reviews:1, 2

Dark, very dark.

Gin Rei (OAV) Decent

The favorite character of Giant Robo returns, Gin Rei. This is mostly set up as a comedy/parady. And some of it works, and some don't. The last show is the best IMO.

(The) Girl Who Leapt Through Time (movie) Excellent
An excellent film with a good message. The animation is fluid and natural, the backgrounds are detailed and realistic, but the character designs are slightly simple but still adorable. Even so it's a neat movie, that will make you laugh, smile, and possible cry. It wasn't quite so emotional with me though, and it is missing something that keeps it from giving a 10, but I can't put my finger on it.
Glass Fleet (TV) So-so
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1

Okay, some things really bug me in this series. Like breathing in space! That is just one thing, but suffice it to say that if you don't put some extreme realities in your back pocket, you will never enjoy this series. Fortunately, when the series focuses more on the human drama, this series actually shines some. Unfortunately, that drama doesn't connect everytime it is supposed too, which is shame because the character designs and costumes are gorgeous.

(The) Gokusen (TV) Decent
Off-site reviews:1

Don't go into it expecting gold, and you will enjoy it better.

Golden Boy (OAV) Excellent
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Freaking funny. Great dub I might add for it being fairly old.

Golgo 13: Queen Bee (OAV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Worth a watch. Has some good art, and even the plot isn't too bad. But it's corny as all hell. Like bad.

Grave of the Fireflies (movie) Masterpiece
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site:1, 2, 3

Truely a depressing anime, it deals with the firebombing of Japan during WWII. It follows a brother and his little sister, and there lone journey to survive. A anime that will stand the test of time, it deals with the horrors of war, and the will of the human spirit to endure.

Green Legend Ran (OAV) Decent
Off-site reviews:1, 2

Reminded me of Now and Then, Here and There. Would have gotten a higher rating if it were not for some glaring errors. With that said, its still worth seeing if you like scifi.

Grenadier (TV) Decent
GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

It has its ups and downs. But most of the stories and episodes are pretty good. The ending was kind of lame, considering how cool most everything else was. Makes me think that they were maybe planning another season, but just decided to end it. Oh well, it is good for a laugh.

Gundress (movie) So-so
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Gungrave (TV) Excellent

Gunslinger Girl (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2 , 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4

While at many times it seems to be a harsh tale, each story has a certain emotional significance to it. Therefore what seems to be tragic can at the same time be very heart-warming.

.hack//Intermezzo (OAV) Good

I don't consider it so much as a real sequel of .hack//SIGN as the encyclopedia suggests. However it does give some much needed background on Mimiru. So that is always welcome in my book.

.hack//Roots (TV) Decent
.hack//SIGN (TV) Excellent

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Key of the Twilight.
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

At first seems kind of confusing and boring. But as the show moves on, it seems to draw you in, and make you care about even the most stale of characters. By the end it becomes an intriging and fully engaging show. Really glad I stuck with this one. Not to mention the characters are easy on the eyes and the music is great.

Haibane Renmei (TV) Masterpiece
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4

Exquisite beyond words. Who? What? Life? Death? Good? Bad? A combination of all the above? The walls in all of our lives are too high to climb, especially by ourselves, and who are we to ask the gatekeeper for passage beyond. If you are sometimes finding yourself searching for the definition of beauty, this anime will certainly point you in the right direction.

Hand Maid May (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4

From the extent of the description you would think this is the most cliche show in the world. And to some extent it is very cliche. I just think it was made well. It went down some paths but steered clear of the obvious plot traps. Not to mention it is pretty funny as well, and the girls are easy on the eyes. But the humans of this world, save one, actually handle things fairly maturely and realistically. So I like that.

Harmagedon (movie) Weak
Off-site reviews:1, 2

I wanted to like it more. But if your interested in the one of the precursers of psychic warfare it is a must see.

Hell Girl (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Episodic, but each one is pretty interesting. The second half you slowly get introduced to an overarching plotline. Problem is, if you are only interested in that one aspect of the show, then it can get a little repetitive and frustrating. Perfect anime you can pop in anytime non-marathon style and still know what is going on though.

Hellsing (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site review:1, 2, 3
Heroic Age (TV) Very good
(The) Heroic Legend of Arslan (OAV) Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 1

A very good fantasy world. Delves fairly well into the life of running and keeping a kingdom. Ends abruptly.

His and Her Circumstances (TV) Very good

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Peaceful Days, The Miyazawas, Nocturne.
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

As a romance a somewhat unique and refreshing show. A show that proves you don't have to have all the fancy glitz to make a good anime, everyone should get around to seeing this. Beware though, downs include hella filler, and an end that just ends...

Howl's Moving Castle (movie) Very good
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Ikki Tousen (TV) So-so
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Loosely based on the novel 'Romance of the three kingdoms'. The operative word is loosely. Oh, yeah and it's fairly pointless as well. Made by JC Staff, is what works for it though.

Immortal Grand Prix (TV 2) Decent

Infinite Ryvius (TV) Good

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: My Will, Fukai Mori, Dearest, Every Heart.
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

I give it a Good because of its tried and true methods. It is too long, too drug out, but it does have its great moments, so it is not a waste.

Inuyasha the Movie 2: The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass Decent
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
InuYasha the Movie 3: Swords of an Honorable Ruler Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1
Iria - Zeiram the Animation (OAV) Good
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Some very nice animation, and pretty character designs on this one. Interesting plot, and unique worlds. Doesn't have many surprises, but it is pretty and the music is quite good as well.

(The) Irresponsible Captain Tylor (OAV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1

A more serious side, and although some will say it deviates to much from the working formula, I say it was a welcome change. Beyond that, it turns out to be quite touching. That's not to say there are not laugh out loud moments, there are, I can guarantee that.

(The) Irresponsible Captain Tylor (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

At first it just seems to stupid to be true. But then people start to grow on you in short order. It turns out to be a bunch of fun, and the support cast is just as great as the lead. Don't even get me started as to why this is a classic.

Jin-Roh - The Wolf Brigade (movie) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

People always seem to find something to complain about this movie. Not me, I thought it was pretty darn good. You should see it.

Kakurenbo - Hide & Seek (movie) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1

Short and sweet. Getting the rating on eye candy alone.

Kaleido Star (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4

Pretty good story with solid animation that can be touching at times, especially towards the climaxes. I must say the first season is better than the second, though it is essential to watch both. I would say the second season has moments that are, how should I say, frustrating for the viewer. Nevertheless it pulls together and ends the story nicely. This show can be light-hearted at times, but also comes with a serious message that we all can relate to. Follow your dreams, no matter what. It's a must watch.

Kaleido Star: New Wings Extra Stage (OAV) Good
Kamichu! (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1

A very nice slice of life drama about a cute little God. It certainly has it's touching moments, but often it feels like it's missing something. A wonderful fantasy land with vibrant colors and weird happenings. You will also find yourself smiling quite often.

Karas (OAV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2
Karin (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7; Off-site reviews:1, 2

A neat little show in my opinion. Although there is nothing particularly astonishing about it, it is still really fun to watch and has some great laugh out loud moments. With pleasing character designs that are both the status quo and not at the same time. The English dub is weak the first volume, but gets better after that.

Kekko Kamen (OAV) So-so
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Okay I admit some of the jokes on this one are pretty darn funny. But they get old quick, to the point that you know exactly what will happen before it does. And once you get over the great looking nudity, there's not much left.

Key the Metal Idol (OAV) Good

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Into the Night.
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Ki*Me*Ra (OAV) Not really good
Off-site reviews:1, 2

The animation actually isn't half bad. But the story needs, well, more time. As is it just jumps all over the place and it's hard to get attached to any of the characters.

Kiddy Grade (TV) Good

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Mirai No Kioku.
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

A solid good show in my opinion. Switches from being overly simple to very confusing so that is sometimes a problem. Almost all of the character designs are very pleasing.

Kill Bill Chapter 3: The Origin of O-Ren (movie segment)
Kino's Journey (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Kite (OAV) Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4

While very explicit, it does have a pretty good story. A little too short, and spends a tad too much time on the sex scenes. Beautiful though.

Kite Liberator (OAV) Decent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

One thing I can say about this is it is inconsistent. The backgrounds are beautiful one minute, and just simple the next. The same can be said about faces. As far as the story goes, if you are just going into it for the action and gunplay, then you will probably have a good time.

Koi Kaze (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1

I won't lie to you, this one can be a little creepy. But then again, if your not a little uncomfortable watching this then your probably missing out in a way that the creators intended. At its heart though it is an endearing story. And it's one that may very well happen, so it is believable as well. This is not something you show to someone new to anime though.

Kujibiki Unbalance (OAV) Good
ANN reviews:1

These 3 episodes are pretty random, but are made that way by design. Even so, it is fairly well done and even has a few good laughs. Not bad for being a story within a story.

Kujibiki Unbalance (TV) Decent

Legend of Himiko (TV) So-so
Off-site reviews:1

I won't lie to you, I love the character and costume designs. Unfortunately, it seems this anime had quite a low budget. And both the animation and storytelling are quite schizophrenic.

Lost Chapter of the Stars - Birth (special) Good
Love Hina (TV) Good
Lunar Legend Tsukihime (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Very well done, and finally a relief as well, as it deals with relationships in a serious manner rather than a silly one. Even if it is built around a fantastical background. As usual with anime I like, I think it should have been longer, it certainly had enough material to work with. But I really have no problem with the way it ended.

Lupin III: Part II (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1

Classic comedy in the vein of Bond, only as a thief. Really one of those you either like or don't like, but not so much in the middle.

Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro (movie) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

A side of Lupin you will never see in any other movie.

Magic Knight Rayearth (TV) Good

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: A Wish I Can't Give Away.
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

The girls go on a long journey, but it doesn't seem like it takes forever to get there. A classic getting stronger and finding your true self quest, and it's done rather well. The animation can get a little shaky in the middle episodes, but the show is interesting enough to make up for it.

Magic Knight Rayearth 2 (TV 2) Good

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Embracing the Light and Shadow.
Off-site reviews:1, 2

This one sort of wraps things up from the first season, as it makes an ending that not even the girls will regret. The animation is also noticeably better, however the atmosphere is much more dark, so it is a shame we don't get many more light scenes. Designs are great just like the first.

Magic User's Club (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Well by the time the TV series rolls around certain aspects of the show can become tiresome. It still has it's charming and fun moments, but all around it just doesn't work as well. It's not bad, but no where near great.

Magic User's Club (OAV) Very good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

A fun little show. I think it is good in the fact that it takes some used before formats, yet it still feels fairly fresh. The story is interesting and it accomplishes what it sets out to do. Oh, and the music is nice as well.

Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi (TV) Very good

MAPS (OAV 1994) Decent
Mars Daybreak (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Defines mindless action. Can be fun at times though, and I think it certainly was pretty. Beware of plot holes you can drive a submarine through as well. Otherwise it is my kind of anime, albeit a total waste in potential.

(The) Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Unmistakably unique, pretty to look at, and laugh out loud funny at times. Not to mention this will probably appeal a little bit to just about everyone, as it really jumps across genres often. But it doesn't do it in a wierd way, in fact it feels quite natural. Making this a must see for just about everyone.

Mermaid Forest (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Good, and gets better as it goes along, but then it just stops. Haven't seen the 91' OVA which is supposed to be it's sequel, so I don't know if that wraps things up or not.

Mezzo (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Mezzo Forte (OAV) Decent
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Nice character designs, but the story can be hit or miss. Actually at times it can be quite funny.

Millennium Actress (movie) Very good

Moeyo Ken (OAV) Weak
Off-site reviews:1
Moldiver (OAV) Not really good
Off-site reviews:1, 2
Moonlight Mile (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1

I think the key to this is not going into it with the wrong expectations. By the title and summary you might think it was about the noble efforts to better mankind through space travel. This is wrong. It is about two adrenaline junkies looking for the ultimate fix, and doing everything they can to find it. That is not to say there are not some good technical aspects and even hints at the profound. Just expect lot's of sex, vulgar language, and moral ambiguity. The art is unique and the animation is above average.

MoonPhase (TV) Very good
ANN review:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8; Off-site reviews:1, 2

All around a pretty good time. I think it does well in balancing out between pure comedy, and the more serious drama. The direction this takes however, is not for everyone. And perhaps only "J-fans" will be the ones whom get the most.

Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit (TV) Masterpiece
Mushi-Shi (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Great art, animation, and storytelling. The plot is episodic in nature, and as such they range from masterpieces to very good. Regardless the show is just excellent all around. If your looking for a highly artistic, yet deeply meaningful story, all wrapped up in 25 minutes, look no further.

My Beautiful Girl Mari (Korean movie) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2
My Dear Marie (OAV) So-so
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Well some of the parts were funny. Best episode was the last one. Nothing is solved.

My Neighbor Totoro (movie) Excellent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4
My-HiME (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Sometimes switches between cute and serious on a dime, but otherwise very entertaining. Must say you do end up having feelings for more than one character. Although it is not a magical girl per se, you like the adventure you have with these girls and their powers.

My-Otome (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

In a way I think this is more entertaining than the original. It is sort of an alternate universe/future/spin-off type of storyline. But even with all of that the story stands on its own two feet quite well. The story has a clearer evolution from beginning to end, and I think that helps the viewer get into the story a bit more. Like HiME it also has both the extremely cute elements and the mature ones mixed together.

My-Otome Zwei (OAV) Very good
ANN reviews:1

Sort of picks things up where they left off, and adds a neat little self-contained story. Just as entertaining as the first, with great animation. The only downside is there is a lot going on, in a short period of time.

Nadia - The Secret of Blue Water (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10; Off-site reviews:1, 2

A genuinely great story. With the exception of five or six episodes in the middle which are just too silly for words. The animation has its ups and downs, but in general is very good for its time. The character designs, and the expressions everyone has really brings this show from being on your TV, to being in your home.

New Cutey Honey (OAV) Very good

I don't know what it is, but I thought it was a pretty neat series. I think it is because it is not trying to be something it's not, which makes it easier to have fun with. The down side to this is it has no real ending, but it is still worth the watch.

NieA_7 (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Probably Tokoro's weakest ABe work. Strangely enough it is also one of the most down to earth. It is a pretty good time though, but the humor didn't always pan out the way it should have. It is actually a very relaxing series.

Nightwalker (TV) Good

Noein - to your other self (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1, 2

In my opinion a fairly typical scifi plot. However as an anime this was pulled off very well, with the exception of some pacing issues. Character designs are not typical, but still remain to be cute.

Noir (TV) Masterpiece

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: At Dawn, Canta Per Me, Chloe, Melody, Solitude by the Window.
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4

A lot of people give me wierd looks when I say this is a masterpiece. Maybe I am biassed, but it is only because I enjoyied this anime immensely. And I don't care what people think. This is about 2 (4) female assassins, one of which has lost her memory. On their quest to find out her identity, as well as carry on with their job as assassins, many fights and plot twists follow. Good fun. Some people will find this one boring though, and at points it does slow down, but to me it was just fine, I am pretty patient. Me, I love it. The gun fights are great, the story is great, and the characters are drawn well. Oh and remember it is a cartoon too, okay. Not everything has to physically make sense. ;)

Now and Then, Here and There (TV) Masterpiece
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Well when you finish the first episode, you think that you will be in for a cool cute scifi adventure. You think. Well you can throw that notion right out the window. This is a serious series, and it deals with serious issues. Expect to dabble in the depths of insanity, douse yourself with the horrors of war, moisten with the mania of rape, and sop up the deluge of human despair. Did you get all the water references. Prepare yourself for this one. I love you Lala-Ru.

On Your Mark (movie) Very good
Off-site reviews:1, 2
Once Upon a Time (movie aka Windaria) So-so
Off-site reviews:1, 2

Good production quality for time period. And fairly tragic. But either to much stuff was skipped over or was poorly executed to produce the proper dramatic effect.

Parasite Dolls (OAV) Very good
Off-site reviews:1

Stylistic and dark, this is three stories told over a six year period. Surprisingly, it keeps viewers attention, and neither rushes the story line nor makes it obtuse. Exceeded my expectations. Also looks great.

Patlabor 2: The Movie Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 3

A story of political intrigue, set against some beautiful animation and art. Focus is mostly on two characters.

Patlabor WXIII (movie 3) Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

A pretty stand alone story as far as I am concerned. I don't believe the art and animation are as good as the the other films, but is still way above other anime. The story is actually fairly interesting as a drama, if it were not for one far-fetched idea that just brings the show down a bit.

Patlabor: The Movie Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2

The giant robots aren't the stars of the show. Even so, they introduce many characters, because of length, we don't get to know all of them as much as we should. Great animation, solid story.

Peach Girl (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4

An interesting drama to say the least. Some shocking things happen in this one, although at some points those same things can get kind of annoying. It's a back and forth kind of show, and can really keep you guessing. The ending isn't bad, but there is one thing I would have liked to see played out during the end. On the other hand, I am not sure if I could handle anymore of Peach Girl.

Perfect Blue (movie) Masterpiece
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

One of the best psychological thrillers out there. It is a movie so I don't want to say to much, but it deals with a star and her "Stalkers". It is a real mind trip. Everyone should see this movie. Oh, I mean every adult should see this movie.

Pet Shop of Horrors (TV) Good
Petite Princess Yucie (TV) Very good
Off-site reviews:1, 2

In one word, this show is CUTE! And done so in a way that is easy flowing and easy to watch. And because you can get involved with the characters, it makes the end of the story all the more touching. This ended up being much better than I had expected.

Phantom - The Animation (OAV) Good
Piano (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Okay this is about as slice of life as a title will ever get. And while most slice of lifes still have an overall point, this one is not as obvious. Mostly because it throws a few curve balls at you to knock you off track.

Ping Pong Club (TV) Good
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

This is not for everybody. In fact it is one of the raunchiest and crude anime there is. At the same time it can make you laugh very loud. Sure some of the gags get old after a while, but they still mix things up enough to keep you interested. If you are interested in silly crude fun, you need to watch this.

(The) Place Promised in Our Early Days (movie) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4
Planetes (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Plastic Little (OAV) Decent
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

As animation quality goes, this is very good to excellent. The story here is actually kind of fun as well, it's just that you get the feeling that we are being rushed through all the scenes. It's a shame really because this had some potential. It at least needed two more OVAs, or even a series. Still worth a watch though. Unless lots of well drawn naked breasts turn you away. Forgot to mention that.

Please Teacher! (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

I don't know whether to laugh or be creeped out sometimes. Maybe both. But it definitely makes you want to keep watching, and overall it's worth it.

Please Teacher! (OAV) Good
Off-site reviews:1, 2

An erotic conclusion. Finally!

Please Twins! (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Pretty good, although not quite as emotional as Please Teacher! Has some very funny moments, and also doesn't have a male character who is lame.

Please Twins! (OAV) Decent
Off-site reviews:1, 2

The vollyball scene is pretty funny. As a conclusion however, it still felt a little dry.

Princess Tutu (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

I believe some people over-rate this. And some people totally under-rate it as well. It is a very good story and a well thought out animation. Also if you like classical type music you will find the selection satisfying. One defect, in my opinion, is the pacing can sometimes lead nowhere or very little. I don't mind slow pacing, as long as it is moving in a direction.

Pumpkin Scissors (TV) Good
Has a pretty intriguing and engaging story that stays interesting almost all the way through. Along with a very good dub, this show switches perfectly between the cute and the serious, and the character designs match. Overall, a very fun show and should be watched. Beware it has a very weak ending, which is a shame, and that brings my rating down considerably, but it is still fun enough to get there that it shouldn't matter.
Puni Puni Poemy (OAV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

The perverse parts are actually pretty funny, everything else, not as much.

R.O.D -The TV- Masterpiece
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews1, 2, 3

Just a wonderful piece of entertainment. As a work of fiction it keeps the story interesting through out the entire 26 episodes. The action scenes are amazing as well. But what really sets this great action show apart is the fact that it will still remain quite touching at times. It is a story/plot that really takes off, never looks back, and makes no apologies.

RahXephon (TV) Very good

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Hemisphere, Solitudes.
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
RahXephon: Pluralitas Concentio (movie) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2
Read or Die (OAV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Absolutely beautiful and entertaining. A mix between the real and non-real, a mix between James Bond and The Craft, while at the same time unlike both of those. All the while keeping the flow going strong without being confusing.

Red Garden (TV) Excellent
The cast of characters really comes together to make this show. I dare say I even got a little emotional at the end so that says something about how they build these characters for the audience. The animation is crisp, but the character designs are not for everyone and will take some getting used too. This show will reward those who have a little patience.
Reign: The Conqueror (TV) Bad
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1
Requiem from the Darkness (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Movie Very good

Very well done visual imagery. It really takes you through the steps, yet remains in the abstract. The sexual overtones are extremely clear yet done in a tasteful way. More than I expected, less than I wanted, this still gave me more than I was looking for.

RG Veda (OAV) So-so
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Haven't read the manga, but it seems as if this OAV is incomplete and a bit rushed. The animation goes from very good to not very good.

Riding Bean (OAV) Decent

Rozen Maiden: Träumend (TV) Very good
Rumbling Hearts (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

A rare serious anime love story. One that will have you close to tears at many points. The story was handled well, and the you will develop feelings for the characters, whether you want to or not.

Rune Soldier (TV) Decent

ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Just a whole bunch of fun. And a little bit of everything in it as well. Gotta love them girls!

Saber Marionette J Again (OAV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2
Saber Marionette J to X (TV) Decent

Beats an environmental message over your head a bit too much.

Sailor Victory (OAV) Weak
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1
Sakura Diaries (OAV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

The animation seems very dated, but the character designs are pleasant enough to look at, and surprisingly realistic. Where it really falls short is the fact that Urara puts up with an enormous amount of unfairness, and on top of that she is a massive ditz. That really takes away from her nice persona, which leads one to believe the reason she is so nice(she is very likable don't get me wrong) because she doesn't know any better. That really took some of the punch out of the story for me. But it is worth it for the funny moments, and the serious drama splashed with fanservice.

Sakura Taisen: Ecole de Paris (OAV) Good

Okay animation, new cast, andgood dub. Still it lacks.

Sakura Taisen: Sumire (OAV) Decent
Off-site reviews:1

Great animation. And a moving farewell also. But that's all it is.

Sakura Wars (OAV) Good

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Opening.
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Fairly decent animation, neat character designs. Story is really just the beginning and introduction to the greater series at large.

Sakura Wars (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2

The animation can't compare to the OAVs at all. But the story is more linear, so it is easier to get into. Can still be very hit or miss though, but has its moments.

Sakura Wars 2 (OAV) Very good
Off-site reviews:1

Better animation than the first OAV, so everything is even more pretty. This focuses on individual stories, and each one is quite good. Altogether this is a lot of fun.

Samurai 7 (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Great visuals, good story. Its just that by the end a feeling that it could have been so much more lingers....

Would recommend to anyone.
Samurai Champloo (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2
Scrapped Princess (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1, 2

A fantasy anime that won't leave a bad taste in your mouth. It also flows right along, so it is easy to watch too. The action, character designs, and plot are all excellent. The downside is only that it is very predictable, but by no means boring at all.

Serial Experiments Lain (TV) Good

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Duvet.
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

A great look a cyber-deism and the creation thereof. Very good plot and choices in music. Has some serious pacing problems, art quality varies, and sometimes tries to hard for its own good. But it is a neat little show that is excellent to watch two or three episodes at a time.

Shadow Skill (TV) Not really good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1

This one is just all over the place. The fights were uninspiring, and not even in the least bit fluid. The story was at times interesting, but I don't know how to say this, it was just handled very badly. Probably the best moments were the ones that were meant to be comedic, and there are not many of those. There is one character design I liked though.

Shadow Star Narutaru (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

A dark and disturbing tale. Can get a little confusing though. And I think it has trouble deciding on whether to stick to a main plot or to become episodic, and since it's only thirteen episodes, thats a problem. Otherwise it is highly enjoyable for those of us who like twisted storylines.

Shakugan no Shana (TV) Good
It's not like like it is bad or anything, in fact it excels in many ways. So it not a waste of time to watch. On the other hand, it does little to stand out, and you get the feeling that you've watched this show before only with less polish. So I guess it does what it does very well.
Shakugan no Shana Tokubetsuhen: Koi to Onsen no Kougai Gakushuu! (OAV) Good
Shamanic Princess (OAV) Decent
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Has a very nice style to it, but the story itself can be confusing. Only six episodes long they decide to show the beginning of the show on the last two episodes. I suggest you watch the last two episodes first, and then start on 1-4. Other than that, it is very lovely, and in the end you'll just wish you could get to know the characters even more.

Shattered Angels (TV) So-so
She and Her Cat (OAV) Good
Off-site reviews:1
Shigurui: Death Frenzy (TV) Decent
Shingu: Secret of the Stellar Wars (TV) Very good
Silent Möbius (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

When I first saw this I thought they just don't make anime like this anymore. And that is somewhat true. I must say it is a pretty good classic style scifi show. That not to say it doesn't have some serious flaws, including a storyline that rarely makes sense especially towards the end. But a good romp nonetheless.

Silent Möbius (movie) Very good
Silent Service (special) Decent
Off-site reviews:1

A Japanese wet dream. And an anti US film to boot. For an anime though it does depict fairly realistic(I use that term very loosely) naval weapons.

Slayers (TV) Good
Slayers - The Motion Picture Good
Slayers Great (movie) Good
Slayers Next (TV) Good
Slayers Return (movie) Good
Sol Bianca: The Legacy (OAV) Very good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Worth the watch if not for designs itself. Could have been a lot better if they made a full series out of it. Too bad.

Solty Rei (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7; Off-site reviews:1

Some people say it starts out slow, and I can kind of see that, but really I think it is just right to set up meaning to the characters. Because in the end you really do feel a connection to these characters in front of a sci-fi background. And as far as satisfying entertainment goes, this fits the bill. The animation is good, and the character designs are pleasant. I found myself surprisingly pleased with this show.

Someday's Dreamers (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Sorcerer Hunters (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Sorcerer Hunters is a fun romp into the fantasy realm. Mostly a cute comedy it does have some serious moments. The final episodes as well as episode five are recommended if that is what you are looking for. The dub would be tolerable if it were not for whoever did Tira, that was just bad. It also should be noted that the dub changes the script way to much, at least for my tastes. And I am pretty lenient when it comes to dubs.

Sorcerer Hunters (OAV) Not really good

Just complete fanservice with no substance whatsoever. Fluff is one thing, but this is just obvious pandering. Couple chuckles, but otherwise not really needed.

Soul Eater (TV) Good
(The) SoulTaker (TV) Not really good
Space Pirate Captain Herlock The Endless Odyssey (OAV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3, 4

A refreshing show in the sense that it does not make the lead any more bad or good than he really is. Strait up honesty about the indifference held within society. Add in a solid scifi plot, and you have a very good show.

Speed Grapher (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Highly explicit, but I believe done in a way to truly explore the failings of human nature. I thought the story was pretty good, and remained entertaining, even though a couple episodes were missteps. If your not squeamish, I would say go ahead and give this one a try.

Spice and Wolf (TV) Excellent
Spiral (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

First of all, there is no end. At least no conclusive one. Otherwise it is a fairly good detective type story. Although the animation can get kinda cheap sometimes.

Spirited Away (movie) Masterpiece
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

My second favorite Miyazaki movie, it really does take you to a different place. A triumph in uniqueness, he really let loose on this one. Deals with a little human girl whose parents get taken away, now she must go into the spirit world to find them. Some take care of her and become friends, others just view her as a bug. Great stuff for the imagination.

Spriggan (movie) So-so
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Starship Operators (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4; Off-site reviews:1

A well put together scifi story. And that is all you should take it as, a single story. A well balanced story, mixing politics, space battles, and the relationships of the crew. While there is a lot of room for development, the story works the way it is.

Steam Detectives (TV) So-so
It's not a bad anime per se. In fact some of the episodes are pretty darn good. But looking at it overall, it's a highly mediocre series. It's not the kind of series that you will get super excited to watch, but there are worse things to do with your time.
Steel Angel Kurumi (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2
Steel Angel Kurumi 2 (TV) Not really good

Off-site reviews:1
Stellvia (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Truly a great anime. Well it has a little of something for everyone, but for scifi fans this is a must see. During the course of the plot it has many opportunities to really take a turn for the worse, but thankfully it never does. It is also remarkable how fresh this anime feels throughout it's entire run. It never seems to get boring or boged down which is something you rarely see in a 26 episode series. It also has the ability to be cute and serious at the same time without being cheesy. A great example of a good anime.

(The) Story of Saiunkoku (TV) Excellent
Excellent show. The beginning, middle and end are good. The story here is what drives the show. Surprisingly, the viewer can make this show as complex or as simple as they like. The story itself is complex, but not so much so that just about anyone won't be able to get the basic premise. The art is crisp, but the animation nothing spectacular. The characters, many of which you will love, and the story drive the show.
Stratos 4 (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Still ? on how I should rate this, any input is welcome. I definitely enjoyed the series though.

Stratos 4 (OAV) Good
Off-site reviews:1
Submarine 707R (OAV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1

Makes me want to play Silent Hunter III, so its good in my book. Slightly inaccurate and unrealistic, but beautiful to look at. Also the ending is never explained, so that is another disappointment. Based on the 70s manga, its rushed. But fun none the less.

Super Atragon (OAV) Very good
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 1

Much better than I expected. A must for any scifi/naval geek.

(The) Super Dimension Fortress Macross (TV) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Best by test.

Sword Art Online (TV) Very good
Sword of the Stranger (movie) Excellent
Texhnolyze (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2

A visual feast. Can be a bit confusing and a tad boring until episode 8 or so.

(The) Third: The Girl with the Blue Eye (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9; Off-site reviews:1

This show is clearly cut into arcs of about 4 episodes each.The animation runs from pretty standard to breath taking. Then again, much of the show takes place in the desert. Where this scifi show succeeds is in the story, and how the main character progresses through it. With the exception of an annoying narrator, the pacing of the show leads you to keep watching. Although not the highest quality, it certainly is a quality show.

Tide-Line Blue (TV) So-so
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1

Well it has some cool mechanical and ship designs. The story, while it does flow, it is just so "blah". I don't know how else to put it.

Tokko (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1
Tokyo Godfathers (movie) Excellent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Well Kon's done it again. The movie is not only very funny at times, but very interesting. The animation is of course top notch. Kind of starts off on a semi-weird premise that seems like it might get boring, but after 15 minutes you can help but being enthralled into this movie.

Tokyo Majin (TV) Good
Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpucho: Tou 2nd Act (TV) Good
A Tree of Palme (movie) Decent

Must stop previous music before playing new. Click to play or stop music. Now playing: House of the Rising Sun.
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Could get a tad boring at times. Good technical merits though.

Trigun (TV) Excellent

Click to play or stop music. Now playing: Korn. Yeah I know it isn't in the show, but it fits.
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3
Trinity Blood (TV) Good
Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE the Movie: The Princess in the Birdcage Kingdom Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1

Pretty much a stand alone arc of the Tsubasa story. With nice animation it is still too short. It is an interesting time though. But you might not want to watch it unless you are somewhat familiar with the story. At least if you want to get the most out of it.

Tweeny Witches (TV) Good
Tweeny Witches: The Adventures (OAV) Good
(The) Twelve Kingdoms (TV) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5; Off-site reviews:1, 2
Twilight of the Dark Master (OAV) Good
Twin Signal (OAV) So-so
Off-site reviews:1

Although not very good, it was fairly fun at times. So since it was short, it was a good fill up your time, turn off your brain, type anime.

UFO Princess Valkyrie: SPECIAL (OAV) Decent
Off-site reviews:1

Besides the recap, it's basically just another 25 minute episode. We get to see some of the characters in unusual situations.

UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie (TV) Good
Ann reveiws:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

First things first. If you have a fetish for girls with animal ears, or girls with wings, or anything along those lines, do yourself a favor and watch this anime. The character designs themselves are pretty good I might add, but it may be due to the overwhelming variety that is thrown at you. As to the show itself, it is pretty standard and predictable. That is not to say it doesn't have it's funny moments. Overall it is very convivial and easy to watch.

UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie 2: December Nocturne (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1

Very much the same kind of humor as the first one, only this time you get a little more history on the girls. The karaoke episode should not be missed, as there is a very beautiful song that is sung. Also the struggle in this one is a bit more epic.

UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie 3: Bride of Celestial Souls' Day (OAV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2; Offsite reviews:1

We get some more background on yet even more characters. But by this point it really is a "been there before" affair. Still, it is light fun.

UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie 4: Banquet of Time, Dreams, and Galaxies (OAV) Decent
Off-site reviews:1

Well, basically two more episodes of cute girls and not much else. And the one thing you want to get resolved never does.

Utawarerumono (TV) Excellent
This is a real good fantasy anime. The story is always evolving, the characters are interesting (and well drawn), the animation is above average and if it were a book it would be a page turner. The only downside is it can be slightly confusing toward the end, and occasionally the hand drawn and CG don't mix (other times they do though) very well. Either way, it would never be a waste of time to watch this series.
Vampire Hunter D (OAV) Decent
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

As a horror vampire flick it is pretty standard. And as an 80's anime, the animation still could have been slightly better. Even so it maintains a well enough interest level.

Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust (movie) Excellent
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Visually stunning, and a great story. It just makes you want more, which is a problem. A little more explaining needs to be done on these fleashed out characters. Nevertheless I think as entertainment goes, you can't get much better. Also, D is cool as hell, so don't go out thinking you are a vampire after you watch this no matter how much you wanna(<--news item).

Vampire Princess Miyu (OAV) Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

I give it an extra up since the animation is good for its time. Unfortunately it still falls in many of the trappings OVAs seem to always fall into. Too short, and poor character development. Although perhaps the main character is eventually fleshed out more than usual, but then it ends.

Vampire Wars (OAV) Weak
Vandread (TV) Very good
See Vandread: The Second Stage
Vandread: The Second Stage (TV) Very good
It's a fun story that is not nearly as annoying as I thought it would be. There is fan service but it's not all the time. They talk about the differences between men and women but they don't get over preachy. The character designs are all pretty and unique for the most part, though the non leading men all seem very generic. The animation is solid and the CG even looks pretty good. Overall a very nice fun show.
Venus Versus Virus (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1

Generic much? It has some good art, it's just so utterly predictable.

(The) Venus Wars (movie) Decent
Off-site reviews:1, 2

Some pretty good scifi action. The animation goes from good to bad, as to be expected from the time period.

Vexille - 2077 Isolation of Japan (movie) Very good
(The) Vision of Escaflowne (TV) Excellent

Voltron (TV) So-so
Voogie's Angel (OAV) Not really good
Off-site reviews:1, 2
Wandaba Style (TV) So-so
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Very silly, and very pointless. Tries hard but falls short most of the time. Has some cute moments though.

Weather Report Girl (OAV) Decent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Proof positive that tits and ass will always prevail. :)

(The) Weathering Continent (movie) Decent
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

Gorgous animation and art. The story concept isn't bad, but they could have done so much more with it.

Wedding Peach (TV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; Off-site reviews:1, 2

A show that has some pretty good and entertaining episodes, but also has a fair share of repetitive and pointless ones. Especially in the beginning. But one should be well aware of those kinds of things when watching this type of show. Overall though it is a charming show, that perhaps should be taken in small doses.

Wedding Peach DX (OAV) Decent
Off-site reviews:1

Totally a 'for the fans' OAV. Basically four stand alone stories, however with better animation and a huge heaping of fanservice. So much obvious fanservice in fact, that it left me scratching my head when considering the original series this is made for.

Welcome to the NHK (TV) Excellent
Whisper of the Heart (movie) Masterpiece
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

My all time favorite Ghibli movie, Miyazaki longside Yoshifumi Kondô team up to make one of the best animes of all time. I really don't want to ruin this movie for anyone, but if you ever have the chance, watch this. It may mean more to teens and adults though as I don't think what is expressed is always worded out. This is not to say kids won't like this movie, they just most likely won't take away as much, if they were a bit older. This movie really pulls the ole heart strings if you know what I mean.

Wicked City (movie) Good
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

A bit dated by todays tastes, but an interesting precurser none the less.

A Wind Named Amnesia (movie) Very good
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

Quite a good story about human nature which sometimes gets off track. Mostly due to the fact that it is a movie and there just enough time to discuss everything. But it does what it can very well. As usual the main characters relationship should have been explored more. The story is well enough that you do care what happens though.

Witch Hunter Robin (TV) Good

Witchblade (TV) Very good

First off, I think the character designs in this are awesome. Sad part is, that there are a lot of Witchblade-type characters brought up throughout the show, but they don't all really get a lot of screen time even though the designs are so cool. The show itself is pretty good too. While action oriented, there is plenty of human drama and story development going on as well. And while I don't think you will ever hear anyone call this show deep, I do think you will hear them say it is highly entertaining.

Wolf's Rain (TV) Decent

(The) World of Narue (TV) Good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1, 2

I guess you could call this one generic, because it certainly covers all the standard bases. However, it does it in such a cute way that it really wins points in that regard. So it's not a bad time at all. Just wish it was a little longer actually.

Wrath of the Ninja - The Yotoden Movie Decent

XXXHOLiC (TV) Good
XxxHOLiC the Movie: A Midsummer Night's Dream Very good
ANN reviews:1; Off-site reviews:1

An interesting hour long story. One thing I think it does well is create a good atmosphere. The animation is above average, and the character designs are great. Okay, Yûko's character design is great. The others you either get used to them and enjoy them for what they are, or scrap you eyes out.

Yugo the Negotiator (TV) Decent

Yukikaze (OAV) Decent
ANN reviews:1, 2; Off-site reviews:1

Grade A animation, beautiful scenary. Not to mention a gorgeous rendition of advanced avionics. A must see for fighter buffs. Problem is that the story is contrived and confusing. I would have enjoyied this so much more if they had made the story just a little more straight forward. Too bad. :(

Zone of the Enders (TV) Good
Off-site reviews:1, 2, 3

The beginning can be a little shaky, but it turns into a fairly standard, fun time, if you can get to that part. I guess it grows on you.
