5 Centimeters per Second (movie)
Angel Heart (TV) Very good Sequel to City Hunter, and thus has a big sentimental value for me. If you haven't seen City Hunter you won't enjoy it too much.
Attack on Titan (TV)
Bakemonogatari (TV)

Honey and Clover (TV) Very good This is probably one of the most random, yet serious, and funny animes out there right now. During the first minute through the first episode, you'll be like "WTF?!!!" In a good way.

2001 Ya Monogatari (OAV) Decent This is a weird movie on how space travel doesn't work if you can't go the speed of light. To me it was boring. No new concepts.
Aishiteruze Baby (TV) Very good Very cute drama. It does revolve around the kid, but it goes into so much more than that.
Akira (movie) So-so Hard to understand, and just weird in general.
(The) Animatrix (OAV) Very good Adds nice details to the parts left out of Matrix, and some extras about it.
Appleseed (OAV) Very good Despite older animation very enjoyable storyline and intrigue.
Appleseed (movie) Good CG animation makes it feel like you're watching a video game. However, I liked both the storyline and animation. Nothing extremely good, but it was very enjoyable.
Appleseed: Ex Machina (movie) Good The whole movie looks like a cut scene in a video game with really good graphics. But it works, animation or rather CG looks really good, plot is decent.
Ayakashi - Samurai Horror Tales (TV) Very good Classic Japanese horror. If you have interest in it, you'll like it, otherwise it might be a little boring.
Banner of the Stars (TV) Very good Just as good as the first one if not better. Very good character development, and story development.
Banner of the Stars II (TV) Very good Great further development, and even better ending anticipated by everyone. Spoiler - not to worry Jinto doesn't die!
Barefoot Gen (movie) Good Story of Nuclear bombing of Hiroshima. Pretty heavy stuff. The manga is better though. If you want a slightly lighter war anime watch Grave of the Fireflies by Ghibli.
(The) Beast Player Erin (TV) Excellent This series starts slow, but really picks up at about episode 6. There is a big story to this series, and it delivers it well, although without any rush. If you can stand slower series, this is for you.
BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad (TV) Excellent Even thought I didn't really like the kind of music they play, but the story was very enticing and the music got better as it went. Would recomend it to anyone, even if you're not really interested in music.
Berserk (TV) Masterpiece Closely follows Manga and then ends in a cliffhanger (don't worry, Skull Knight will save him). The plot is AMAZING! The most amazing part about it is that it is very belieavable. Nobody is perfect, nobody is 100% good (exept Rickert), everyone seems very human (it they are human...). Get Manga from www.thehawks.org
Beyond (OAV)
Big Windup! (TV) Very good This is a fun Junior high baseball drama. Manga is a lot better.
Black Lagoon (TV) Very good Pretty Cool action, even though at times it can get pretty corny.
Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage (TV) Excellent The coolness continues with more Revy, Rock, Balalaika and others. First ark looks a little weird, but is surprisingly good, and ends just the way it's supposed to.
Blade of the Phantom Master (movie) Very good Kind of rushed, but still good.
Bleach the Movie: Memories of Nobody Good No new development. See your old favorite characters fight, and as always win.
Bleach: Memories in the Rain (OAV) Good A recap of what had happened between episode 1 and 20 or so. The ending is very nice because I think it shows how every shinigami group spends their free time.
Bleach: The Sealed Sword Frenzy (OAV) Good Not bad, but not as good as general series. It's more of a fansurvice to show all of the captains again.
Blood: The Last Vampire (movie) Decent Short and to the point.
Blue Exorcist (TV)
Blue Seed (TV) Very good Character development is good, and humor is good, storyline is very good too. English dubbed version is bad.
Blue Seed Beyond (OAV) Good It's basically a nice fan survice for people wondering what happened to all of the characters afterwards.
Boys Over Flowers (TV) Excellent Nice romance story. Likable characters. Cute and handsome boys.
Brave Story (movie) Good A very typical RPG setting. Too typical. Animation is great though.
Castle in the Sky (movie) Masterpiece One of the best Miyazaki's movies, if not THE best.
(The) Cat Returns (movie) Good Weak for studio Ghibli.
Chrono Crusade (TV) Good It made me dislike Christian god even more than I did before.
City Hunter: Death of the Vicious Criminal Ryo Saeba (special) Very good I think this is the best City Hunter movie, and it really brings out all of the characters in the series, both in terms of action and comedy.
City Hunter: The Motion Picture (special) Good
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion (TV)
Cowboy Bebop (TV) Very good It's good, no doubt about it. But I don't understand everyone's obsession about it.
Crest of the Stars (TV) Excellent Very exiting on land and galactic action. Watched all in a very shor period of time.
Cromartie High School (TV) Good Some extremely funny moments, but the humor gets repetitive and boring after a while. Plus it basically lacks plot other than being funny.
Densha Otoko (live-action movie) Good It's an interesting movie, especially interesting is the reactions of the blog readers all over Japan. However, the main character is such a big whimp that it really distracts from the story.
Descendants of Darkness (TV) Weak All I expected was decent plor and/or yaoi, but it didn't have either.
(The) Dog of Flanders (movie) Very good
Doraemon: Nobita at the Birth of Japan (movie) Good
Doraemon: Nobita in Dorabian Nights (movie) Not really good This is one of the weak Doraemon Movies. (I don't think you can find it in US.)
Doraemon: Nobita to Kumo no Ōkoku (movie) Very good This is one of the best Doraemon movies. (I don't think you can find it in US.)
Doraemon: Nobita's Animal Planet (movie) Very good This is one of the very best Doraemon movies. (I don't think you can find it in US.)
Doraemon: Nobita's Dinosaur (movie) Bad This is probably the worst Doraemon movie. (I don't think you can find it in US.)
Doraemon: Nobita's Genesis Diary (movie) Good One of the better Doraemon movies. I thought it was great how this "Genesis" totally involved evolution. That's right America! That's how you teach children evolution!
Dorami & Doraemons: Robot School's Seven Mysteries (movie) Decent Entertaining. (I don't think you can find it in US.)
Dororo (live-action movie) Good A pretty good movie as long as your expectations are reasonable. However, the plot is pretty standard, so can't say it was great.
Elfen Lied (TV) Good *sigh* Too much blood and bodyparts-flying-off for me... It matches it, but just too much.
Emma: A Victorian Romance (TV) Very good A classic that very beautifully and accurately portrays victorian era with a romance between two people from diffrent social classes.
Emma: A Victorian Romance Second Act (TV) Excellent
Escaflowne: The Movie Excellent I don't know why people didn't like it. I thought it was soo cool.
Eureka Seven (TV) Very good I can't say it's a masterpiece, but it's very enjoyable nevertheless. First ~5-7 episodes don't really pull you in, but as relationships deepen and emotions heat up you will be drawn in. Just be a little patient. And after that it's extremely enjoyable. I'll have to spoil the ending a little though: it's not very well executed ending, but none of the main characters die; so you can relax and simply enjoy it without worrying much.
Fake (OAV) Very good Very cute, especially if you have read the manga (now available at Borders).
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (movie) Very good Exellent CG, brings back everybody's favorite characters. However, plot is pretty shallow... Still very enjoyable.
Flying Phantom Ship (movie) Decent Very old. Very predictable.
Fruits Basket (TV) Excellent Plot is pretty deep and very interesting, art is cute, main characters are all very likable, there is some action and enough drama. Exellent series!
Full Metal Panic! (TV) Excellent The best combination of comedy and giant-robot genre. Very funny at times without being really stupid, encorporates fair amoung of drama, and there is a lot of action, especially towards the end.
Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid (TV) Excellent The best out of three series. It really adds a new dimension to all of the main characters and their emotions. Really brings out the drama, and yet has a lot of action. Plus some question from the previous series are answered.
Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu (TV) Excellent Nothing about giant-robots, and everything about comedy. I cried because I was laughing really hard. Extremely funny, one of the best if not the best comedy anime out there.
Fullmetal Alchemist (TV) Masterpiece One of the very few series that in whole can be called a Masterpiece.
Fullmetal Alchemist: The Movie - Conqueror of Shamballa Very good Actually a pretty good conclusion to the whole story. Exept I would rather have it end slightly differently, but oh well.
Galaxy Express 999 (movie) Very good Animation classic. For people who don't want to see all 113 episodes of the TV series, this is a shorter version. A much much shorter version. It explains everything from the beginning to the end. The only downside, there isn't really enough time for all the cool planets, but I think the shortness kinda makes up for that.
Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo (TV) Excellent "Count of Monte Cristo" by Alexandre Dumas itself is fabulous story so read it. Unusual coloring of Anime, but very good when you get used to it. The voice of the Count (plaid by the same guy who did Alucard from Hellsing) is just soooo good. I don't know why they modified the ending by making it worse than it was in the book... Very good upto ep 20.
Genshiken (TV) Very good Very very funny, even if you know nothing about the otaku culture.
Ghost in the Shell (movie) Good Too philosophical to be entertaining. I found it often boring. Animation is superb, however.
Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence (movie) Excellent Animation and music are simply something else... the content is again too philosophical, and often boring, or very hard to understand what is really going on, or why it's so important. But watch it at least just for the beautiful animation.
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (TV) Excellent 1st GIG was great, even though it's complicated. 2nd GIG is just as good and complicated. Watch each GIG all at once or you will be lost in the intrigues.
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society (movie) Very good Great further character development, very difficult and philosophical story.
(The) Girl Who Leapt Through Time (movie) Excellent
(The) Gokusen (TV) Very good Starts out a little slow, and that weird dog is annoying, but then picks up and is very enjoyable. Plus helps shed light onto Yakuza world and lingo.
Grave of the Fireflies (movie) Masterpiece "CLASSIC. Warning: this is a film that will tear away at your heart. If you have any human compassion in your soul to begin with, you *will* shed tears, many of them, before the end of this film." - abunai (another Anime News Network user)
Gravitation (TV) Decent I didn't like the music.
Gravitation: Lyrics of Love (OAV) So-so Much weaker than series. Also it's not really necesary to watch it.
Gunbuster (OAV) Decent This is old style Robot anime. It has a historical values (as a history of mecha anime), but story is simplistic and cliches are abundant.
Gungrave (TV) Very good Watch it from ep 2. The first part is very interesting and enjoyable, however the second part is full of hopelesness, and is much less enjoyable.
Gurren Lagann (TV) Very good This series are condensate of all the clichés that there are, and yet it is very unique and good. I recommend this to anyone young or old (who wanna feel a little younger).
.hack//Legend Of The Twilight (TV) Good Funny to watch.
.hack//Liminality (OAV) Weak Don't bother.
.hack//SIGN (TV) Decent Great animation. Even better amazing soundtrack. BUT the plot is really weak.
Haibane Renmei (TV) Excellent Very strange series. But good.
Hand Maid May (TV) Decent Typical harem anime with one guy and many cute girls aiming for him.
Heat Guy J (TV) Very good Very enjoyable. Get it at http://anime-4ever.org/index.php?s=bt&loc=1
Hellsing (TV) Excellent Can be sometimes hard to grasp, but coolness of main character makes up for it.
Hetalia - Axis Powers (TV)
Highlander: The Search for Vengeance (movie) Decent Kinda disappointing. The animation is great, but plot just isn't there.
Hitsuji no Uta (OAV) Not really good Compared to manga (which is now available in Borders) the picture quality is very poor, and the music and use of music is bad. Just read the manga.
Howl's Moving Castle (movie) Masterpiece A movie after which you will feel better.
I''s (OAV) Weak Very weak, especially compared to manga.
Iblard Jikan (OAV) Decent Just to clear things up, this should be watched the same way as walking through an art gallery. Nothing happens, just watch one beautiful panorama after another.
Initial D (TV) Very good Animation is pretty bad, storyline is simple, and some episodes were in Chinese. But despite all of that you just get sucked in!
Initial D: Battle Stage (OAV) Good Recap of most Battles, well arranged.
Initial D: Extra Stage (OAV) Very good Cute, nice, and exiting as all Initial D is. Plus there is some bonus nudity for guys ^_~.
Initial D: Fourth Stage (TV) Excellent Animation gets much better again, and storyline does too.
Initial D: Second Stage (TV) Excellent Animation is significantly better, CG for cars is better, and again you get sucked in.
Initial D: Third Stage (movie) Very good Nothing special, more battles and saving a girl. But again, you can't not watch it.
INTERSTELLA 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem (movie) Good Done by the same guy who did Galaxy Express 999. It's a musical, there are no words but only cheezy techno music. But when you get passed the music (which might not match everyone's taste), it's surprisingly good. I recomend it for everyone.
Inuyasha (TV) Excellent Very strong in the beginning, but gets a little weaker in the middle, and towards the end. Exellent character development and character relations.
Inuyasha the Movie 2: The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass Very good Not bad, plus there is that KISS scene!
InuYasha the Movie 3: Swords of an Honorable Ruler Good A little better.
Inuyasha the Movie 4: Fire on the Mystic Island Decent I expcted something to conclude the series from this movie, but it was separate from the series, just like the other Inuyasha movies. And it's not any better either, kinda boring actually.
Inuyasha the Movie: Affections Touching Across Time Decent I would say it's pretty weak storywise.
Jin-Roh - The Wolf Brigade (movie) Excellent Very dark movie from the beginning to the very end. But very good never the less. Just don't watch it unless you're fine with being depressed after this.
Jyu-Oh-Sei (TV) Good I liked the original idea. Animation was good. But they really rushed the series. There could have been so much more development.
Kaiji (TV) Good At first this seems to be like Akagi. Same art (same Mangaka), and similar premise. It even manages to grab you in a similar (but no the same) way. But then the ending just goes horribly wrong. Also there is no badassness. There is pain, desperation, human emotions that Akagi lacked, but Kaiji is not a badass.
Kakurenbo - Hide & Seek (movie) Decent This... basically bad guys win... and continue doing bad stuff.. so I didn't get, what was the point?
Kekkaishi (TV) Excellent Very likable characters, and slowly but surely developing strong overall plot.
Kemonozume (TV) Decent Very unique animation style, and pretty unique story. However, it's just too weird for me.
Kiki's Delivery Service (movie) Masterpiece Another Miyazaki's classic. Very happy movie.
Kimi ni Todoke - From Me to You (TV) Good Very cute and sweet series, but about angsty.
King of Thorn (movie) Decent
Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World (movie) Excellent Sequel of the TV series. Goes just like another episode. This episode didn't feel like the material was already digested and spoon fed, so I liked it a little better than the main TV series.
Kino's Journey (TV) Very good I've read many opinions comparing Mushishi to Kino's Journey, but personally I liked Mushishi much better. Kino's Journey is a very good piece, but while watching it, I sometimes felt like I was spoon fed already digested opinion. Mushishi made me think more. Make sure you watch Mushishi, whether you liked this or not.
Last Exile (TV) Excellent Animation quality is superb, storyline is exellent, character development is very good, and ending is very appropriate. Also: "I must warn you that it contains one of the most unsettling - even outright terrifying - villains of any anime I've seen." - abunai (another Anime News Network user)
Last Order Final Fantasy VII (OAV) So-so I watched it just to be able to understand Advent Children better. But it was crappy nnone the less.
Like the Clouds, Like the Wind (special) Good A movie that reminds me of Ghibli (since some of the staff is from Ghibli, no wonder). Pretty good historical comedy/drama, but nothing more than that.
Love Hina (TV) Very good One of the first in harem-comedy genre. Good one with likable characters, and a good ending. (the OVA)
Love Hina Again (OAV) Very good Good ending to the series that everyone was expecting.
Love Hina Spring Special - I Wish Your Dream Good Just another special, nothing really gets anywhere.
Love Hina X'mas Special - Silent Eve Good Same as above.
Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro (movie) Excellent Yeah, Miyazaki's work!
Mahoujin Guru Guru (TV) Good Funny, especially for people who did all the earlier RPGs. But gets a little boring after a while.
(The) Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (TV) Decent I don't get why people are so crazy about this. It's decent, but nothing oh-so-special. Funny, but not as much as Fummofu. Random, but doesn't even come close to randomness of FLCL.
Mermaid (movie) Good A short movie with strong metaphores about I think communism. I'm pretty sure that that was what inspired Tezuka Osamu.
Metropolis (movie) Weak I really liked the 60's 70's animation style combined with CG, but I think the plot is pretty weak.
Millennium Actress (movie) Good As a movie it's a good movie, but I didn't find it to be a masterpiece.
Mirage of Blaze: Rebels of the River Edge (OAV) Decent
Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: Apocalypse 0079 (OAV) Good Enjoyable mostly because of the whole thing being CG animated. It's like watching a video game on X-box 360.
Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: The Hidden One Year War (movies) Good Same as above, but here we get a little more story and emotions.
Mobile Suit Gundam Seed (TV) Very good As anyother mecha anime it sucks you in.
Mobile Suit Gundam Seed C.E.73: Stargazer (ONA) Good Almost totally unrelated to Gundam Seed, except some characters run through this one too. It was pretty good until.... it just suddenly ended.
Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny (TV) Good Worse than the first one due to an extreme annoyingness of the main character, but still ok.
Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit (TV) Excellent The action scenes surpass Samurai Champloo. Other than a few (~3) filler episodes, plot is solid and it draws in. Animation is beautiful.
Mushi-Shi (TV) Masterpiece Very hard to describe, because this anime is something you need to watch and feel. The first three episodes it looks like the writer is still trying to figure what it's gonna be about, but then it just gets on the roll. Lets just say that my step-father, aunt, and even grandmother who before this only liked Miyazaki's movies liked this anime.
Mushishi (live-action movie) So-so Severely butchered and changed stories put together, that have lost most of the charms of the original. Don't bother.
My Neighbor Totoro (movie) Masterpiece Adults might not understand it too well, but kids will love it and watch it over and over. It's just so Magical!
Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok (TV) Good Unusual interpretation of nordic mythology... I always thought Loki was the bad one. But series is entertaining and characters are likable, though too much remains unexplained...
Naruto Special: Battle at Hidden Falls. I Am the Hero! (OAV) Good
Naruto the Movie: Legend of the Stone of Gelel Good Though cheezy, much better than the first movie both in terms of character development and fight scenes.
Naruto the Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow So-so VERY cheesy, lame character development. The only enjoyable part was after the ending credits where Kakashi sees his favorite Ichaicha Paradaise being made into a movie.
Naruto: Akaki Yotsuba no Clover o Sagase (OAV) Decent
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (movie) Masterpiece I liked the movie better than the awfully long Manga. Very well made and good ending.
Neon Genesis Evangelion (TV) Very good OVERRATED Decent beginning, good middle, and then it just goes into philosophical and psychiatrical discussion, and it becomes virtually impossible to comprehand...
Neon Genesis Evangelion: Death & Rebirth (movie) Decent Recap of the Series, boring if you've seen the series.
Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion (movie) Good Good until about 1/3 way through the second one, then boring stuff starts, then the end is very... uh... metaphorical, but really weird. But at least it's the end.
Now and Then, Here and There (TV) Masterpiece At first animation seems childish and unsophisticated, but behind that a very deep and touching story unfolds with nothing childish in it. This will really make you think.
One Outs (TV) Excellent Amazing one from the same director Yuzo SATO who did Akagi. The same atmosphere, and grabs you after second episode. Same suspense and same bad-ass-ness. I can't wait for him to make something else. If you liked Akagi, this is a must. Also a little easier to follow, since more people are familiar with baseball than with Mahjong.
Ookiku Furikabutte ~Natsu no Taikai-hen~ (TV) Excellent
Origin ~Spirits of the Past~ (movie) Good Very predictable plot, but good animation and soundtrack.
Pale Cocoon (OAV) Good The future they paint seems too unrealistic to me, especially the whole concept of loosing historical records. We try to preserve records as well as we can, and I doubt we will ever stop doing that.
Paprika (movie) Decent
Paranoia Agent (TV) Excellent This is a very weird series, especially the last two episodes. Very good nevertheless.
Peacemaker (TV) Good Starts out kinda goofy, but this is one of the bloodiest animes out there. Very good character development and story telling. If you want continuation, Manga is available at Borders, though the story gets darker.
(The) Place Promised in Our Early Days (movie) Not really good Animation is great, but that's about all there is to it.
Planetes (TV) Excellent Very realistic portrayal of the future and it's space development, both technology, politics, and people wise. I recomend it to anyone.
Please Teacher! (TV) Good Another one of typical harem series, with a little twist. If you like harem anime with tons of big boobs and nice ass, with romance, this is for you.
Please Teacher! (OAV) Good If you like the series, this is just some extra, with one extra beautiful lady.
Pom Poko (movie) Very good Too much treehugging, but very enjoyable anyways. Good job, Ghibli.
Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea (movie) Very good I didn't feel much of Miyazaki's magic in this one. Maybe I am just in the wrong age group, but because I was expecting like his previous movie this did dissapoint.
Porco Rosso (movie) Masterpiece My favorite Miyazaki Hayao's work.
Princess Jellyfish (TV)
Princess Mononoke (movie) Masterpiece Miyazaki doesn't usually portray much death, blood, and distruction, but this has it all. Great story, action, and even some romance. With great portrayals of ancient Japanese gods and spirits, maybe slightly harder to fully understand for Americans, easier for cultures with some leftover of ancient gods and spirits of the nature.
Record of Lodoss War (OAV) Very good Classic. Even if you don't watch it, get the opening, it's called "Kiseki no Umi" the best anime opening I've heard.
Requiem from the Darkness (TV) Good This is pretty good if you like Japanese historically themed titles. Not outstanding though.
Royal Space Force - The Wings of Honnêamise (movie) So-so From what I've heard I thought it would be better. However, to me it was boring even though the lead voice actor is absolutely great.
Rurouni Kenshin: Reflection (OAV) Very good Good conclusion to the Kenshin TV series. Sad thoughl.
Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal (OAV) Masterpiece Probably the saddest and the best movie I've seen.
S-CRY-ed (TV) Very good Good character development, good plot and very interesting story development.
Saber Marionette J (TV) Good Pretty entertaining and enjoyable.
SaiKano (TV) Very good This anime made me cry so many times. Don't watch episodes 11-13 and you will be a much happier person.
Samurai 7 (TV) Very good Doesn't live up to the original film by Kurosawa Akira. Beginning is very good, but middle is weak, and when you think it would have a happier ending than the original film, it doesn't. But if you look at it separately, and not in a comparison, it's very good.
Samurai Champloo (TV) Excellent One episode will be simply halarious, where another will be just weird, and occasional episodes will be very serious. Nice ending too.
(The) Secret World of Arrietty (movie) Very good
Seikimatsu Darling (OAV) Very good Very funny in all the aspects, great comedy.
Slam Dunk (TV) Very good One of the better sports animes out there, after about 7th episode really pulls you in. And later you're just rooting for everyone. Anime ends right before the national tournament, if you want the continuation download Slam Dunk Manga 1-30 torrent.
Slam Dunk (movie) Decent It's more of an extra episode than a movie. Nothing better than anime, maybe slightly worse.
Slam Dunk: Shōhoku Saidai no Kiki! Moero Sakuragi Hanamichi (movie) Good Same as the above.
Slam Dunk: Zenkoku Seiha da! Sakuragi Hanamichi (movie) Good Same as the above.
SOS! Tokyo Metro Explorers: The Next (movie) Very good Short movie, with a unexpected ending. Definitely watch it.
Spice and Wolf (TV) Excellent Similar feel to Mushishi, although there is more continuity between episodes. I can't say that the plot or the animation is something spectacular, but everything is well made, comes together nicely, and creates a unique atmosphere and attachment to characters.
Spice and Wolf II (TV) Excellent
Spirited Away (movie) Masterpiece It's definitely a masterpiece, but I can't say I like it more than other Miyazaki's works. I think it's overrated.
Spriggan (movie) Good
Steamboy (movie) Very good Despite all the hype an average movie, with average characters, average very predictable plot, and average story development.
(The) Story of Saiunkoku (TV) Very good Nice Chinese Historic drama. It has a nice plot with plenty of political intrigues, total bishie fest, and fair amount of action as well. Also unlike Fushigi Yuugi, there is nothing annoying about the main heroine.
Strawberry Eggs (TV) Weak Amusing.
Street Fighter Alpha (OAV) Not really good
Sukisho (TV) So-so Plot is too jumpy and doesn't flow smoothly. Not enough details. Sometimes funny.
Summer Wars (movie)
Sword of the Stranger (movie) Very good Somewhat interesting movie with very good action scenes. But it comes short on character development.
Tachikomatic Days (OAV) Good Very short few minute clips entirely on Tachikomas, it's worth watching.
Tales from Earthsea (movie) Excellent Doesn't have Hayao's magic in it, but a very solid and good movie, especially if you have read Ursula LeGuinn's "Earthsea" novels. And if you haven't, you should.
Those Who Hunt Elves (TV) Very good It doesn't make much sense in the beginning, so just enjoy the comedy; but they explain everything later.
Tide-Line Blue (TV) Good Enjoyable with well developed characters, plot, and it's short.
TO-Y (OAV) Not really good It was weird... I kinda got what it was about, but the whole thing was so out of the blue without any explanation of what how and why was going on that.. I couldn't enjoy it. Maybe the fact that I've never read the manga has something to do with it.
Tohai Densetu Akagi -Yamini Maiorita Tensai- (TV) Excellent From the beginning I disliked the art. But by the end of the first episode this series got a hold on me and I had to watch the next episode. Very exciting and much more than a usual anime about sports or a game. Just make sure that you read a little bit on mahjong rules, that way you will actually somewhat have a clue to what's going on (unlike me when I started watching it). But even without knowing anything about mahjong, it's very enjoyable.
Tokko (TV) Not really good I read the manga http://animewaves.net/index.php?goto=m-tokko and compared to manga it's just not living up to it. The animation is low budget, the music is crappy low budjet. I can only hope that the plot will be worth watching it.
Trigun (TV) Masterpiece Trully explores the meaning of being a peacemaker. Great character development, great storyline. A lot of humor, a lot of tears (especially at the end). You will really get sucked in.
(The) Twelve Kingdoms (TV) Masterpiece It starts out slow, but then picks up (around episode 6) and then it's absolutely great!
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust (movie) Excellent I thought it was really cool. Also well dubbed.
(The) Vision of Escaflowne (TV) Excellent Exiting series, with an interesting concept, story, character development, and ending.
Voices of a Distant Star (OAV) Excellent Amazingly this movie is made by one man, from plot and scenario, to all of the animation and Japanese voice acting (his wife dubbed the girl). For a short animation that it is it is good, and I don't know if it could be better in that limited amount of time.
Whisper of the Heart (movie) Excellent I can't quite say it's a masterpiece, but it's definitely worth seeing.
Wolf's Rain (TV) Excellent Wolves are so cool in this anime. The story is interesting as well, but slightly too far off in terms of fantasy.
Wolf's Rain (OAV) Good It concludes the series with pretty expected conclusion. But even though expected, I didn't like it.
X (movie) Worst ever It's hard to say why is this movie so bad, even compared to the series. The character development is impossible in such a short time with so many characters, and there is just so much unexplained, and the ending is really bad as well. Just bad.
X (TV) Very good Very different from the movie and actually good. At first I didn't realize why I liked this series so much, even though the plot is really weird. Then I realized it was because of the characters. They are extremely well developed and likable. I recomend this a CLAMP classic.
xxxHOLiC the Movie: A Midsummer Night's Dream Decent Kinda dull.
Yugo the Negotiator (TV) Weak Uh... he gets tortured, then he gets respect, then he gets tortured again, and then he gets respect again.... Plus their portrayal of Russia could not be more WRONG. I mean seriously, if you're wearing KGB clothes after 1990, you're just gonna get laughed at, nobody is gonna let you in anywhere.
Zaion: I Wish You Were Here (ONA) Very good I thought that this was really good short series. Story wasn't too deep, but everything else compensated for it.

Will not finish Rating Comment
3x3 Eyes (OAV) Decent Chinese accent is cute and all, but still boring.
Adventures of Tom Sawyer (TV) Good Retelling of the classic. It's a children's anime, and when I was a child I liked it.
Afro Samurai (TV)
Ai Yori Aoshi (TV) Not really good Typical "perfect girl & perfect guy + all other girls that like him and push him down." Everybody's so perfect, it's boring.
Ai Yori Aoshi ~Enishi~ (TV) Not really good A perfect boy and a perfect girl in love with each other... the basics of storytelling is that not a single character should be perfect, because human mind can't believe that, and thus can't relate. Now when there are two perfect characters it becomes really boring (I don't enjoy fan service).
Azumanga Daioh (TV) This is just not my type of TV show.
Bartender (TV) A very slow paced anime about people's feelings about bars and alcohols. Too slow paced for me.
Basilisk (TV) So-so ummm.... Romeo and Juliet ninja style. Basically everyone kills everyone while two lovers try to get togather...
Black Cat (TV) So-so
Blood+ (TV) Very good So far good, but kinda turning out too long and weird.
Bokurano (TV)
Captain Tsubasa (TV) Decent Soccer anime, pretty good at first, butcan get boring later on.
Cardcaptor Sakura (TV) Weak
Case Closed (TV) Very good Very entertaining, even after considering that if anybody got or was present at the scene of so many murders, that person is a walking disaster. However, when it goes over 400 episodes it kinda gets old, plus the drama part of the series, barely moves forward at all.
Cat's Eye (TV) Good
Chobits (TV) Decent I didn't understand what people liked about it. It has some entertaining moments, but for me it just got boring enough to simply quit it.
City Hunter (TV) Good
City Hunter '91 (TV)
City Hunter 2 (TV)
City Hunter 3 (TV)
Clannad (TV) So-so WAY overrated. This is a drama/comedy about a weird girl and a guy who helps her out of boredom. Oh, and there is also a ghost from a comatose girl that wonders around the school... Characters are nothing spectacular, plot doesn't grab attention, animation style is the annoying big eye one, atmosphere isn't the type that I like. I watched a few episodes, scanned some more ones from the middle and the end, then deleted it.
Clannad After Story (TV) So-so Same as Original series, with one good story about a cat who wanted to stay with one of the characters. Boring.
Cluster Edge (TV) Decent I don't really mind it being gay.... but the whole story seems shallow with shallow character development, and shallow plot. It gets worse and worse with every episode.
Conan, the Boy in Future (TV)
Darker than Black (TV) The OST is amazing, animation is great, but those things can't replace a good plot, which this lacks.
Densha Otoko (live-action TV)
Dog of Flanders (TV) Good Old classic that should make you cry.
Dokonjo Gaeru (TV) Not really good
Doraemon (TV 1/1973) Good Good for kids. (I don't think you can find it in US.)
Dr. Slump (TV) Decent
Dragon Ball (TV) Good I actually like this part of the series much more than "Z" and "GT" parts. Goku is still relatively weak, and fighting against relatively human enemies.
Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibōken (TV) Decent
Elemental Gelade (TV) Looks like someone liked Laputa Castle in the Sky (by Miyazaki Hayao) and wanted to make it longer, but didn't have enough talent to actually make it good.
Ergo Proxy (TV)
EUREKA SEVEN AO (TV)
Excel Saga (TV)
Eyeshield 21 (TV) Another sports anime, this time about Football... ooptie do...
Fafner (TV) Weak
Fushigi Yugi (TV) Very good
Galaxy Express 999 (TV) Good Classic, Tetsuro visits some very interesting planets, and I think it's a great anime for kids to start learning about morals of this world. However, it's just too long (113 episodes). Fortunately for people who like this but don't want to spend 20min x 113 = 37.7 hours on this series, there is a movie with the same name and it goes through the whole series pretty quickly (without those awsome planets, but saves you a lot of time).
Ganba no Bōken (TV) Good
Gegege no Kitarō (TV 1/1968) Good Very enjoyable old anime. It's a classic about obake.
Getbackers (TV) Decent Superpowers are kind of cheezy, but characters are funny.
Ghost Hound (TV)
Ghost Hunt (TV) Decent
Ghost Slayers Ayashi (TV)
Ghost Sweeper Mikami (TV) I only watched the first episode, and it looks like episodes will be pretty much the same. However, that first episode was soooo funny!
Gintama (TV) So-so uh... it was too stupid to be really funny.
Government Crime Investigation Agent Zaizen Jotaro (TV) Decent
GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka (TV) Good I liked Live Action (J Drama) version better, but it's cool.
Hataraki Man (TV) Decent
Hayate the Combat Butler (TV)
Heroic Age (TV)
Hetalia World Series (TV)
Hime-chan's Ribbon (TV) Decent Typical magic girl series, but was fun to watch when I was a kid.
Ikebukuro West Gate Park (live-action TV)
Infinite Ryvius (TV) Good
Intrigue in the Bakumatsu - Irohanihoheto (TV) School kids with superpowers fighting against monsters. Watched two episodes, wasn't interested enough to continue.
Jungle no Ouja Taa-chan (TV)
Kaikan Phrase (TV)
Karas (OAV)
Kiba (TV) Good Another one of the Magical-Boy-in-a-magical-World series, but this time at least main character isn't annoying. We'll see how it turns out in a longrun, but so far it's not bad.
Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo (TV) Very good Very nicely done detective series. Good character development, very enjoyable, though might get a little repetitive after too many episodes.
Kiteretsu Daihyakka (TV) Very good This is too much like Doraemon, but also pretty enjoyable. A classic.
Kochira Katsushika-ku Kamearikouen-mae Hashutsujo (TV) Good Old funny classic. But you might not get much if you've never been to Japan.
Kodocha (TV) Good
Legend of the Mystical Ninja (TV) Worst ever
Lil' Red Riding Hood Cha-Cha (TV) Good Aimed at the younger audience. Pretty typical "magical girl" anime with a little bit of twist and more comedy.
Lupin the 3rd (TV) Good Classic TV series. Can be pretty cool, but did get boring for me.
Magic Knight Rayearth (TV) Not really good
Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi (TV) Not really good
Martian Successor Nadesico (TV)

Mobile Suit Gundam Wing (TV) Just never got into it.
Moonlight Mile (TV)
My-HiME (TV)
Naruto (TV) Good
Negima! (TV) Decent "10 yr. old Harry Potter kid (Negi) + Negi's graduates magic school + Teaches at an all girls' school + girls range from cute to straight up hot + Negi has some interesting magic powers (like when he sneezes it sometimes blows clothes right off girls) but he isn't supposed to use magic (sorta like Harry Potter when he's outside school grounds) + this isn't really a math formula at all + did I mention it's by the guy who did Love Hina? = Fan Service... Fan Fuckin' Service... I mean this thing is just a Fan Service vehicle... " by Webby "MagisterNegiMagi isn't really Harry Potter porn as much as it is Love Hina on crack, with magic and cards. And when I say crack, I mean lots and lots more girls than Love Hina has. " by IonFONE
Nintama Rantaro (TV) Very good Very fun to watch, too bad it's hardly available. (I don't think you can find it in US.)
Noir (TV) Bad
One Piece (TV) Good Everybody keeps saying it's awsome, but I can't get into this series, it's repetitive, and slightly too childish for me. Also waaay too long.
Orphen (TV) So-so
Ouran High School Host Club (TV)
Outlaw Star (TV) Good
Peach Girl (TV) Decent I like the art (guys are cute) but if the storyline progresses like in the manga, then the girl will swing one way and another waay too much and after a while it will get boring.
Pokémon (TV) Weak
(The) Prince of Tennis (TV) Good Sucks you in in the beginning, but then gets a little repetitive.
Puni Puni Poemy (OAV) Bad
Ranma ½ (TV) Good Very entertaining, but Manga is better.
Record of Lodoss War: Chronicles of the Heroic Knight (TV) Bad OMG the English dubbing on this is just soooooo horrible!!!
Revolutionary Girl Utena (TV) Weak I don't know what people see in this, I thought it was repetitive and boring.
Rurouni Kenshin (TV) Very good
Sailor Moon (TV) Weak
Sailor Moon R (TV) Weak
Saint Tail (TV) Not really good
Salaryman Kintaro (TV) Good Old Classics with the atmosphere.
Samurai Deeper Kyo (TV) So-so Just couldn't bring myself to finish it... didn't really grab me.
Sazae-san (TV) Decent The classic of Japanese family animation. Fun, but if you watch more than one ep a day can get repetitive.
Sherlock Hound (TV) Decent
Shonen Onmyouji (TV)
(The) Slayers (TV) Good
Soreike! Anpanman (TV) Decent Breads fighting germs.... Fun for kids though.
Speed Grapher (TV) Decent Good start, but it just goes downhill from there.
Steel Angel Kurumi (TV) Weak Typical robot-big-breasted-girl-loving-her-master anime targeting guys' ego.
Swiss Family Robinson (TV) Good Another retelling of the classic story. When I was a kid I liked it.
Those Who Hunt Elves 2 (TV) Good Repetitive, since the first part was about the same thing... That's why I dropped it.
Tokyo Majin (TV)
Toward the Terra (TV)
Trinity Blood (TV) Decent At first I thought it would be very cool and funny, somewhat of a mix between Hellsing and Trigun. But as of now it's neither really cool nor really funny... so I am debating whether I should continue watching it or not. And... I didn't. I heard ending sucks as well, because in the end they don't really explain anything.
Urusei Yatsura (TV) So-so Funny, but doesn't make too much sense at a times, I'm not a fan of it.
(The) Wallflower (TV)
Wedding Peach (TV) Awful OMG... this is probably the wors series out there... Um so basically three magical girls transform into brides and defeat monsters with their.... bouquets. And I think they are ... middle schoolers... yea. Bad.
Yamato Takeru (TV)
Yomigaeru Sora - RESCUE WINGS (TV)
Yu Yu Hakusho: Ghost Files (TV) Very good Very good character development even though it might be a little repetitive. Plus some characters are just soo cool (not the main one).
