Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Movie Excellent
Revolutionary Girl Utena (TV) Masterpiece My all-time favorite anime (and my favorite TV show, period). Every few years I rewatch it and still discover new things. Beneath the fairy-tale/arthouse craziness lies staggering nuance, emotional depth, and subversiveness. (NOTE: The English dub is bad. Like, REALLY bad.)

Key the Metal Idol (OAV) Very good
Jumping (movie)
Immoral Sisters (OAV) Not really good
Howl's Moving Castle (movie) Very good
Hellsing (TV) Decent The plot is mediocre (especially toward the end), and Alucard is a God Mode Sue. But the chemistry between the 4 leads is a joy to watch, and lifts the series beyond the sum of its parts.
Gunbuster (OAV) Very good
Grrl Power (OAV)
(The) Green Cat (OAV) Decent
Grave of the Fireflies (movie) Excellent
(The) Girl Who Leapt Through Time (movie)

Ghost in the Shell (movie) Very good
Genius Party (movie)
Garzey's Wing (OAV) Excellent The ultimate "so bad it's good" anime - quotable and jaw-dropping absurd. Watch it with friends.

Daicon films (special) Very good
Cromartie High School (TV) Very good

Cowboy Bebop: The Movie

Cosmos Pink Shock (OAV) So-so
Comedy (OAV)
(The) Cockpit (OAV) Decent
Clover (special) Good
Cipher (OAV) So-so Unusual, in that it was recorded entirely in English. Don't miss the behind-the-scenes featurette after the credits.
Cencoroll (movie)
Catnapped! The Movie
Cat Soup (OAV)
Castle in the Sky (movie)
Cannon Fodder (movie)
Call Me Tonight (OAV) Cheerful 80's-era spoof of tentacle porn.

Bubblegum Crisis (OAV)
Blood: The Last Vampire (movie)
Black Rock Shooter (OAV) Good
Black Magic M-66 (OAV)
Black Jack: The Two Doctors Of Darkness (movie) So-so Blah. At least Kiriko was in it, so it wasn't a total loss.
Black Jack The Movie Excellent Like a Black Jack OAV episode, just longer and with a higher budget.
Black Jack Final (OAV) Very good
Black Jack 21 (TV) Good Over-the-top even by this franchise's standards, but seldom boring.
Black Jack (OAV) Excellent Dark, gorgeously animated, histrionic medical drama with a truly weird streak. Nothing else quite like it. The English dub is well-acted for its time but makes script changes ranging from "actual improvement" to "WTF?"
Black Cat (TV) Not really good
Beyond (OAV)
Battle Angel (OAV)
Azumanga Web Daioh (ONA) Decent
Azumanga Daioh - The Very Short Movie Decent

Animation Runner Kuromi (OAV) Not really good
Angel's Egg (movie) Very good
Angel Densetsu (OAV) Good
Angel Beats! (TV) So-so
Alien Nine (special) Very good (dub & sub) The show's biggest strength is its overwhelming sense of unease. There's always a sense of something wrong beneath the surface, even in the happier scenes.
Akira (movie) Masterpiece
Air (TV) Decent
Air (movie) Not really good I had three problems with this movie. (1) Like most films based on TV shows, the plot is rushed and many of the best characters and subplots were cut out. (2) Osamu Dezaki was the wrong guy to direct this. His bombastic approach doesn't mesh with a tender story like this. (3) The ending is contrived. The characters all acted like idiots for the sole purpose of making that ending happen.
Aeon Flux (U.S. TV) Very good
