RapidEyeMovement's Anime

take a look at RapidEyeMovement's Manga

I started this list when I was much younger. My tastes have changed a little, so I've been trying to rewatch things and re-evaluate them when I can.

Seen all Rating▲ Comment
Fullmetal Alchemist: Seven Homunculi VS State Alchemists (OAV) Weak
Romeo × Juliet (TV) Weak (dub & sub)
Rurouni Kenshin: Reflection (OAV) Weak
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.
Animation Runner Kuromi (OAV) Not really good
Armitage: Dual-Matrix (movie) Not really good
Black Cat (TV) Not really good
Death Note (live-action movie) Not really good

Vampire Knight (TV) Not really good
Wata no Kuni Hoshi (OAV) Not really good
Angel Beats! (TV) So-so
(The) Animatrix (OAV) So-so
Black Jack: The Two Doctors Of Darkness (movie) So-so Blah. At least Kiriko was in it, so it wasn't a total loss.
Cipher (OAV) So-so Unusual, in that it was recorded entirely in English. Don't miss the behind-the-scenes featurette after the credits.
Cosmos Pink Shock (OAV) So-so
Deadman Wonderland (TV) So-so
Fullmetal Alchemist: Kids (OAV) So-so
Kowarekake no Orgel (OAV) So-so

Fumoon (movie) Decent Hokey yet strangely riveting old Tezuka special.
Gall Force - Eternal Story (movie) Decent
(The) Green Cat (OAV) Decent
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.
Knight of the Iron Dragon (OAV) Decent
(The) Laughing Target (OAV) Decent
Mighty Orbots (U.S. TV) Decent Creative, colorful, shockingly well-animated Saturday morning goodness.
Occult Academy (TV) Decent

Self-portrait (movie - Osamu Tezuka) Decent
Shinesman (OAV) Decent
Slipstream (OAV) Decent
Sonic Boom Squadron (OAV) Decent
Soul Eater (TV) Decent (dub & sub)
Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko (OAV) Decent Above-average fluff. Yohko herself is an awesome character--strong, crafty, sarcastic. Anime needs more heroines like her.
Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko II (OAV) Decent Ditto.
Steamboy (movie) Decent
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust (movie) Decent
Yōsei Florence (movie) Decent
Yu-Gi-Oh! (TV 1/1998) Decent
Angel Densetsu (OAV) Good

Eternal Family (TV) Good
Fake (OAV) Good
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (TV) Good
Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence (movie) Good
Kikumana (movie) Good

Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine (TV) Good
Mad Bull 34 (OAV) Good Total guilty pleasure.
Megazone 23 Part II (OAV) Good

Twilight Q (OAV) Good
xxxHOLiC (TV) Good
xxxHOLiC the Movie: A Midsummer Night's Dream Good
Aeon Flux (U.S. TV) Very good
Alien Nine (specials) 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.
Angel's Egg (movie) Very good
Black Jack Final (OAV) Very good
Crest of the Stars (TV) Very good
Cromartie High School (TV) Very good

Roujin Z (OAV) Very good
Saint Young Men (movie) Very good
Stink Bomb (movie) Very good
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 Jack The Movie Excellent Like a Black Jack OAV episode, just longer and with a higher budget.
Cowboy Bebop (TV) Excellent Saw when I was younger and had a shorter attention span. I'd probably appreciate it more now.
Garzey's Wing (OAV) Excellent The ultimate "so bad it's good" anime - quotable and jaw-dropping absurd. Watch it with friends.
Grave of the Fireflies (movie) Excellent
Magnetic Rose (movie) Excellent
Memories (movie) Excellent
Millennium Actress (movie) Excellent
Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit (TV) Excellent (dub & sub)
My Neighbor Totoro (movie) Excellent

FLCL (OAV) Masterpiece (dub & sub)
Mushi-Shi (TV) Masterpiece
Perfect Blue (movie) Masterpiece
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.)

Tokyo Godfathers (movie) Masterpiece
Whisper of the Heart (movie) Masterpiece (dub & sub)
Battle Angel (OAV)
Beyond (OAV)
Black Magic M-66 (OAV)
