Attack on Titan (TV 2/2017)
Berserk (TV 2017)
Fairy Tail (OAV) Very good Pretty funny, more fanservice than the TV.
One Piece (TV) Masterpiece Tied with Kenshin as best of its genre. The East Blue arc that does the stories of each new crew member is the best. Arabast arc is so slow and stretched. Skypiea arc has very good action. Water7 arc has as much angst as East Blue. I've realized that One Piece is the combination of the best of 2 worlds: Sailor Moon and Dragonball. Though the fights are not in arenas (thank god), it's still 1 on 1 fighting. The fights are always creative, and it uses this style of action to carry the theme of friendship that is Sailor Moon. ^_^ Great songs too.
Owarimonogatari (specials)
Shakugan no Shana (TV) Weak Rather slow with the monster of the week formula. Characters are dull.
Yu Yu Hakusho: Ghost Files (TV) Decent

Seen all Rating Comment
3x3 Eyes (OAV) Decent The anime is too short, it condensed 5 volumes into 7 episodes, and unworthy of the 40 volume epic created by Takada. Read the manga. Hayashibara does a great job voicing Pai.
3x3 Eyes Seima Densetsu (OAV) Good Like I said for above, read the manga.
5 Centimeters Per Second (movie) Good I agree with ANN's review. Good point about how Voices is about maintaining contact, Places is about re-establishing contact, and Centimeters is about living in the present. Third chapter is very unexpected and even the pacing feels like it doesn't belong in the same anime as the first two, how it's like an epilogue instead of a developed chapter. Chapter 2 is good, I like the girl in it and the setting and the rocket launch scene. Very beautifully drawn.
Ah! My Goddess: The Movie Decent Nice stand-alone movie. The 2-person motorbike race looks very cool.
Ai Yori Aoshi (TV) So-so The perfect woman that cooks and cleans and lives to serve you... not that interesting really.
Ai Yori Aoshi ~Enishi~ (TV) Decent Rated it a little better than first series since we get more development with Tina.
Air (TV) So-so First half kinda boring since I didn't really care about the problems of the side characters. :p The far-flashback part is when it gets a bit better. Best to ignore the origin of the story.
Aishiteruze Baby (TV) Very good Most eps are great, some are boring. Everyone speaks in short sentences ^_^. Good ending.
Akira (movie) Not really good Story could've been much better.
All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku (OAV) Good Funny and lighthearted.
And Yet the Town Moves (TV) Good Decent comedy that revolves around Hotori's missteps and misunderstandings. Plenty of chuckles and some LOL moments. Kinda like Azumanga anime without the extremes.
Angel Beats! (TV) Excellent A bit confusing sometimes and has some plot holes. I agree with the ANN review that it could've done a few more back story and Otonashi personally save a couple more individuals before problem-of-the-week formula got boring. But it has genuinely sad moments that stays sad even after it tries to be bittersweet. That is hard to do in media without appearing plain pitiful, thus I bumped it to Excellent from what I would've normally given it Very Good for its flaws. Ending songs are good, Cowboy Bebop's Ed actress sings one of them.
(The) Animatrix (OAV) Decent Fills in a lot of the backstory. Half good, half boring.
anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day (TV) Decent Some characters are annoying. Their guilt feels genuine enough that I feel some empathy.
Appleseed (movie) Decent Typical save mankind scifi scenario. Story is so-so but the CG action scenes are decent.
Appleseed: Ex Machina (movie) Weak Very predictable and boring
Area 88 (TV) Not really good The first series where I watched it first and completely on AN On-demand. Noir moody type but it grows on you. The dogfights are cool.
Attack on Titan (TV) Good Good action, decent characters. Good pacing but there are still so much unanswered after this season that I can't recommend this series until I see more. Too bad the horrors of their situation quickly extinguished the comic relief that is Sasha.
Azumanga Daioh (TV) Excellent Very funny show... no plot really, just day to day life at school and special events. Episodic
Azumanga Daioh - The Very Short Movie Decent Like a preview of the show.
Azumanga Web Daioh (ONA) Good Funny.
B Gata H Kei - Yamada’s First Time (TV) Good How do you make sexual perversion an acceptable comedy? Make the women characters the ones that are perverted. A lot of my enjoyment comes from seeing how Yamada reveals the inner thoughts of a Tsundere character.
Bakemonogatari (TV) Very good An interesting twist to the usual harem anime. Instead of finally becoming a couple with the main girl at the end of the series, it happens near the beginning. The other girls come into the story develop feelings for the guy as he helps them with their troubles, but he's already taken by then. Senjogahara is attractive mainly for her straight-forwardness. No bullshit or mysteries of a maiden's heart with this girl. The different intro songs by the respective subject girl of that episode is cool too. Series is dialog heavy but not boring and to make it not so plain they went ADD with the animation. I got used to it after a few episodes. Cool art too.
Banner of the Stars (TV) Good The story continues right where it leaves off. More focused on the war than Jinto X Lafiel so not as good. The Bebous Brothers are boring to listen to.
Banner of the Stars II (TV) Very good Alright, the focus on the love birds is better than the previous series. Just as good as COTS if not better. Admiral Spoor is awesome. Oh the emotions!
Banner of the Stars III (OAV) Good Aww... so short. But some good Jinto-Lafiel love in it.
Barakamon (TV) Good It's cute, but there seems to be a story with Naru's parents that I wanted to see but was never shown, I think they are alive but not even sure where they live or if there are together.
Basilisk (TV) Good OMG Romeo and Juliet, ninja-style! It could've been much better if they didn't slow down so much half-way through the series and if more people lived. =\ 18 episodes would've been a better length but this kind of pacing is expected from Gonzo.
Battle Angel (OAV) Good Nice action. The plot flowed well, never boring. Too bad just 2 episodes which covered just the start of the manga.
Battle Royale (live-action movie) Decent Without the killing and violence, this movie would be nothing. Curiosity satisfied. Go-go of Kill Bill is in it. :)
Battle Royale II: Requiem (live-action movie) Weak Makes just as little sense as the first and sucks so much more. And Motoki of PGSM is the first to die! WTF?!
BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad (TV) Masterpiece Best slice-of-life anime I can think of. All the characters are very believable, very good storytelling. Good anime ending. I want a Maho Massage.
Berserk (TV) Masterpiece Bloody and intense!
Berserk (TV 2016) Good Worth seeing for the story. This is the period when Guts is alone. Next season his party comes together. I really dislike the CGI animation though, it's crappy CGI like from the 90's. Stiff, ugly.
Black Cat (TV) Decent Train is much cooler before he partnered up with Sven. Darker and more serious while alone and hanging out with Saya compare to the sudden change in character after he starting being with Sven. He became more annoying.
Black Lagoon (TV) Decent Kinda like Cowboy Bebop, but not as good. More of an excuse to show as many fetish girls as possible, with guns. You have your killer maid, killer nun, killer loli-twins, killer Chinese-chick-in-qui-pao (with knives), killer ex-Russian military commander, killer yakuza ojosama. Jungle guerrillas arc was a bore.
Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail (OAV) Not really good I guess I'm supposed to be impressed with Rock's analytical ability, but as it progressed, Roberta's luck and survival-ability just get more and more ridiculous. Plus they made Satsuki Yukino voice an annoyingly dumb character.
Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage (TV) Good Immediate continuation of the first season. More exciting episodes and more Cowboy Bebop similarities; last fight in series is a fight between guns and katana.
Black Rock Shooter (OAV) Bad Kinda like Sucker Punch but no plot/goal
Bleach (TV) Decent At the start, it's cooler than Naruto in the sense that it's not elementary kids fighting. But some of the later battles during the save-rukia arc is pretty boring with too much talking. And by the end, the battles aren't interesting anymore, they are really just power vs power, little strategy, at least for dumbass Ichigo. Naruto is looking strong at the late point while Bleach never evolved.
Blue Exorcist (TV) Weak Bland shounen. Main hero is just as dumb as most shounen but the supporting characters are lacking as well. Mediocre story.
Blue Gender (TV) Bad boring
Bottle Fairy (TV) Good Cute, episodic, useful tool to learn more about Japanese culture. ^_^
Bunny Drop (TV) Not really good Like Aishiteru Baby but more mundane. Baby had more comedy and high school drama. This one was more subtle.
Burn Up! (OAV) So-so One of the early chicks-with-guns. Gunsmith Cats is better.
Cardcaptor Sakura (TV) So-so Decided to watch this to see what's so great about it and why so many AMVs of it. Not impressed. Truly a kids' show, but kinda wrong with all the young-old crushes. Her mom and dad were high school student and teacher, wtf. CLAMP really must know what pedo otakus love.
Cardcaptor Sakura Movie 2: The Sealed Card So-so Resolves Sakura x Shaoran's relationship.
Carried by the Wind: Tsukikage Ran (TV) Very good Episodic till the end. A cross between Slayers OAVs and Samurai Champloo. Like Lina and Naga in Tokugawa Japan. Nice fight scenes, funny. Like One Piece, Meow (Nami's VA's role here) has a pinwheel and there's a character called Sanji.
Casshern (live-action movie) Good Apocalyptic future told in a poetic way.. of sorts. Took effort to follow what's going on. Great visuals.
Castle in the Sky (movie) Good Pirates are cool. :)
Cat Soup (OAV) Very good Very weird, it'd be even cooler if you watch it while high.
Cencoroll (movie) Decent Interesting. Like a mix of FLCL and Evangelion
A Certain Magical Index (TV) Decent Watched this after Scientific Railgun, comparing the two, this one is a bit more serious.
A Certain Scientific Railgun (TV) Decent The characters are fun despite little development. Story is alright
Chaika - The Coffin Princess (TV) Very good Follows the scrapped princess formula but more loli. I like the useless brat that is Pacifica more than the weapon weilding naïve loli creation that is Chaika. Lots of questions about the past and Chaika herself that I hope will be answered in season 2.
Chaika - The Coffin Princess Avenging Battle (TV) Not really good Finishes the series, nothing super memorable about it.
Chihayafuru (TV) Good Like Hikaru no Go except with karuta instead of go. HnG has a more interesting story but Chihayafuru has a love triangle.
Chihayafuru 2 (TV) Good Competition after competition makes it feel like Slam Dunk pacing. Hayashibara is in it though :)
Chobits (TV) Decent Tries too much to be sad. I don't get Hideki's robo-love.
Chrono Crusade (TV) Good Too many fillers, if story stuffed into 13 episodes it would've been good. Genuinely sad ending, not pathetic like Saikano. ED song is a favorite.
City Hunter (TV) Good Entertaining, episodic, funny.
City Hunter '91 (TV) Good Didn't really want to watch seasons 2 and 3 so I just skipped to this one. Its got a couple of stories more serious than the first season but still episodic.
City Hunter: Bay City Wars (OAV) Decent Decent stand alone movie
City Hunter: Death of the Vicious Criminal Ryo Saeba (special) So-so Decent stand alone movie
City Hunter: The Motion Picture (special) Decent Decent stand alone movie
Clannad (TV) Weak Pretty boring overall. Fuuko and Kotomi's stories that took up like half the series were the boring stories that I should've expected for watching an anime that was adapted from an interactive game. And those that are not erotic are the worst. Can't believe I still watched the end of it after skipping half of the Kotomi story. Guess I'll watch the alternate story with Kyou (the only interesting girl).
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion (TV) Masterpiece Like Death Note but supernatural powers here have less restrictions than the notebooks in Death Note. And also mecha political action with plenty of hot girls.
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 (TV) Excellent The conclusion to the series. Gets weird and it can't really do the secret-life act for Lelouch since that cat's out of the bag for that. But it redeemed itself with a fitting ending.
Corpse Princess: Aka (TV) So-so The premise isn't that substantial to begin with so it feels forced at times. I don't like any of the main characters.
Corpse Princess: Kuro (TV) So-so Watched it just for the sake of seeing what happens, since it's short.
Cowboy Bebop (TV) Masterpiece It's great. The song "Wo qui non coin" is a favorite. Episodic.
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie Very good Nice stand-alone movie.
Crest of the Stars (TV) Very good The politics of this war, this universe, is interesting. The Abh, an advance race of arrogant humans, expands its empire, makes its neighbors nervous, and war ignites (sounds like WW2 huh?). They're such bastards but can't help but to like them. Love story good, every episode good. Though shoot outs in the last ep became almost unbelievable and cheesy and didn't feel right with the rest of the series.
Cromartie High School (TV) Decent Most episodes are funny despite being so pointless.
Cromartie High: The Movie (live-action movie) Not really good Not as effective as the anime.
Cross Game (TV) Good Great start, then it slows down a lot. At least the ending doesn't leave out any loose ends.
Darker than Black (TV) Decent decent moody atmosphere, story is ok
Darker than Black: Gemini of the Meteor (TV) Decent If you liked the first season, this is worth to watch. Even more lolicon than the first though. The fights are still cool, the setup is still WTF (gate, super-goddess Yin, end of world Evangelion what)? Just don't think too much and take it as it comes.
Death Note (TV) Masterpiece The restrictions and powers of the death note may be stupid at times and obviously made to support the story, but that's just a minor nitpick in this excellent crime drama in the race to uncover the opponent's identity.
(The) Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (movie) Decent It's an okay movie. For Nagato fans. But without much Haruhi (and Haruhi abusing Mikuru), it's not as funny.
DNA² (TV) Very good Great love polygon story. Harem.
DNA² (OAV) So-so kinda sucks, didn't develope the polygon much.
Doki Doki School Hours (TV) So-so Decent light hearted series. Though jokes aren't bad, they keep running the same ones.
Dream Eater Merry (TV) So-so Kind of monster of the week format, lite entertainment.
(The) Eccentric Family (TV) Very good Good development of multiple characters, shows how humanly irrational the supernatural can be. Still can't figure out what is Benten's goal.
Eden of the East (TV) Good The premise is rather over-the-top with a few wtf moments. But the storytelling is good and I like the attention to details on the locations (Tokyo, Yokohama, DC, New York. To be continues with the movie.
Eden of the East: Paradise Lost (movie) So-so Rather bleh ending for the story. I guess it's expected that a plot/plan this complicated will finish poorly.
Eden of the East: The King of Eden (movie) Good Continues right where the TV left off, but still to be continue with the next movie.
Elfen Lied (TV) Very good A guilty pleasure. Extremely explict: flying body parts, full nudity, women and children are not spared. Plus a good plot.
Ergo Proxy (TV) Decent Starts out strong with kinda cyberpunk post-apocalyptic sci-fi mystery with an ass kicking chick. But the second half of it just went EVA-cryptic on me and end of the world crap, weak finish. Pino is a great comic relief and saves a lot of this series. ^^
Escaflowne: The Movie So-so It's ok.
EX-Driver (OAV) Decent Despite having a ridiculous premise, the car chases are pretty cool.
Excel Saga (TV) Excellent Very funny and weird parody. Episodic.
Fairy Tail (TV) Excellent Though nothing new in the sense of shounen anime. The storytelling is well done, emotional moments are genuine, and the jokes are funny. Most of the fight scenes are fairly generic. Basically it's just overpowering the opponent with the same ol attacks. Like One Piece, backstory arcs are the best ones. Edolas arc is like One Piece's Skypiea arc.
Fairy Tail (TV 2/2014) Good Okay arcs, they tend to stretch. Also mediocre fillers. But Fairy Tail still does comedy and sorrow well. The sacrifices of Ultear and Aquarius were really moving.
Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess Standard stand alone movie.
Fairy Tail Zero (TV) Good Good backstory on Mavis and the founding of Fairy Tail.
(The) Familiar of Zero (TV) Good Good harem anime, pretty bold sometimes, would make a good hentai if parodied. Only surprise is how easily some of the characters killed, probably more realistic in that sense. No time to think about morals in the heat of combat.
(The) Familiar of Zero F (TV) Good A decent conclusion to the series. Has all your usual harem antics with an all-star vocal cast.
(The) Familiar of Zero: Knight of the Twin Moons (TV) Good Continuing on with the same wining formula as the first season with good development in Saito and Louise's relationship. The ending is a cop-out though, wtf, couldn't come up with a better explanation than a fairy?
(The) Familiar of Zero: Rondo of Princesses (TV) Decent More of the same from the previous seasons but wtf, some people can't stay dead
Fighting Spirit (TV) Good The comedy is really funny, the fights are good but by the time after the rookie tournament, they're not so unpredictable or "new" anymore. Wish to see Ippo and Miyata fight again but looks like that's gonna be like a series finale thing.
FLCL (OAV) Good Slice of boy's life, not bad.
Fruits Basket (TV) So-so It's ok, some episodes feel redundant.
Full Metal Panic! (TV) Masterpiece Best mix of genres I've ever seen. OP/ED songs are favorites.
Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid (TV) Masterpiece As a big fan of FMP, I had to rate this "Masterpiece." But relative to the other FMPs, I'd rate it as "Excellent." Nontheless, a must see for FMP fans for the emotional climax of the franchise.
Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu (TV) Masterpiece Even funnier than FMP. Episodic. OP song is a favorite.
Full Moon o Sagashite (TV) Decent Very kiddy and girly. More in the TV than the manga. Nice ending though.
Fullmetal Alchemist (TV) Excellent Occasional fillers in this 1-quest 51ep action adventure. Ending is rather anti-climatic. The 4th OP song "Rewrite" rocks.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (TV) Excellent This version is a lot better. Almost no fillers, jumps right into the main story. Good pacing, some interesting new characters, solid ending. But for some reason it doesn't feel "masterpiece" level for me. Maybe it seems too... happy for me. With the large amount of characters it had in such grand conflicts, maybe I was expecting a lot more of the good guys to get killed. Oh well, still great.
Fullmetal Alchemist: The Movie - Conqueror of Shamballa Very good Continues where the TV ended, giving it a better ending.
Gantz (TV) Good Very mature (gore and sex). Good action. I understand the main characters never been in that situation before but you'd think they've seen enough TV/movies to understand the situation they are in and not hesitate so much. It's kinda like sci-fi Berserk. The anime made its own ending since the manga is still going.
Genshiken (TV) Masterpiece This series is really about Saki cuz without her it wouldn't be half as entertaining.
Genshiken 2 (TV) Good More otaku-ness but without the focus on Saki it's just not as good.
Ghost in the Shell (movie) Good Cool action movie.
Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence (movie) Good The story is ok, the animation is superb, the children look ugly, but the dog is cute.
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (TV) Very good Pretty cool, much better story than the movies. This is one of those series that's better to watch it in English dub than read subtitles, cuz of all the talking and technobabble.
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society (movie) Good It's good if you're already a fan of GitS and want to see more.
Ginban Kaleidoscope (TV) Very good Predictable Plot but still good. Cool that they spoke English (Engrish) and Russian (Roosian?) when appropriate. Felt that there was a bit too much talking though.
(The) Girl Who Leapt Through Time (movie) Good Good movie that is not too long or not too short for its plot. Time travel is always a fun subject.
Grave of the Fireflies (movie) So-so Sad, but not that sad, just pitiful. :p
Grenadier (TV) So-so The concept of a hot chick removing people's will to fight without resorting to violence has promise, she doesn't even need to have oversized breasts. This series can be much better with a better story/writing but I guess production is counting on fanservice to do everything.
Grimgar, Ashes and Illusions (TV) So-so I got baited into this anime due to a YouTube video describing how realistic the fighting is in this anime. The fights are good but not really that exciting. The rest of the story is ok, characters are standard, emotions are well done, pacing is a little slow. The premise is these people were transported into this world (from our world) without memory of our world. But there is no hint about why or where they are. It seems like a poor story prop to make this a MMORPG instead of a straight fantasy anime. To give the characters no other option to live in that world than to fight sentient creatures. It would've been nice in this season if there's a clue about where and why they are there.
Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl (TV) Excellent An odd slice of life anime with moe done well and good main characters development. The dialog is funny, the characters are oddballs. Sorta harem too.
GTO Drama Special (live-action special) Masterpiece Can't get enough GTO. The climax of the relationship between Onizuka and Fuyutsuki's relationship.
GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka (TV) Masterpiece Very funny, fanservice, outrageous.
GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka (live-action TV) Masterpiece Very good drama with touch of humor.
GTO: The Movie (live-action movie) Decent Just another story.
Guardian Ninja Mamoru (TV) Decent Generic shounen harem comedy. But at least it's nice and short.
Gunparade March (TV) Good A Mech anime that's more about romance than fighting. The characters are surprising cheerful for the dire situation they face. The war against the invading bugs seem as distant to the citizens as the war in Iraq is to me.
Gunslinger Girl (TV) Good Interesting... nice gun battles.
Gunsmith Cats (OAV) Good (dub & sub) Nice action, guns, explosions. Nitty Gritty style with some fanservice. It's kinda like Dirty Hairy.
Gurren Lagann (TV) Not really good After a few episodes in, I've had enough of the whiny little kid that pilot's his mech with spirit. Update, well since Albert and Helly both said I should watch it, I did. It's not bad after the whiny kid part. The ending fights just get more and more absurd.
Haibane Renmei (TV) So-so It's ok, one of those "I hate myself and have no place I belong to" kinda anime. Too slow for me.
Hajime no Ippo - Champion Road (special) Good same as TV
Hajime no Ippo - Mashiba vs. Kimura (OAV) Good Good focus story on Kimura
Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger (TV) Good same as first season
Hanamonogatari (TV) Good Any Bakemonogatari is good. It's always cool to see others solve a problem on their own.
Haré+Guu (TV) Decent Wacky like Excel Saga. Some episodes are really funny, some are just meh. Adult Guu is cool and monster Dama is halarious.
Haré+Guu Deluxe (OAV) Decent Same as before.
Heaven's Memo Pad (TV) Good Interesting case-of-the-week anime. Decent storytelling.
Hell Girl (TV) Good It starts out interesting, but by ep5, I'm wondering if it's gonna be the same monster-of-the-week routine for every episode. In a sense, it kept to the routine of one revenge case every episode, but it got much better by including Hajime-chan and Tsugumi into the story.
Hell Girl: Three Vessels (TV) Weak I was already bored with the episodic vengeance-of-the-week format after the first few episodes of the FIRST season. They really dragged it out for this one: 26 episodes where all but maybe 4 were crap. The second season is a good season to stop on; it had good episodes explaining her helpers' pasts and a conclusive ending. This third season had none of that. Only plus I would say is you get to see Tsugumi again in a couple episodes.
Hell Girl: Two Mirrors (TV) Good Mostly the same episodic style of "normal" episodes of the first season. But there are some episodes that tell the stories of how Enma Ai met her 3 assistants. Those alone make this sequel worth watching if you like the characters. Also ended nicely with Ai finally released from her duty... in the only way fitting for this series: a sad way.
High School of the Dead (TV) Good Ecchi with zombies. Does a good job with both.
Highlander: The Search for Vengeance (movie) So-so There can only be one! Well, no Duncan McCloud, Plot is rather boring and the action could have been better.
Highschool of the Dead: Drifters of the Dead (OAV) Decent Just hallucinations, lame :p
Hikaru no Go (TV) Masterpiece Who'd think the game of go can be so exciting. Intense.
Hikaru No Go: New Year Special Excellent More HnG, though the TV ended it very well already.
His and Her Circumstances (TV) So-so (sub), Decent (dub) Pure shoujo. The comedy is good. Horrible ending. Even more incomplete than Berserk. Could've ended it earlier with 13 episodes if ep26 is just gonna leave it hanging. Too many "review of what's happened."
Honey and Clover (TV) Very good Funny romantic comedy with plenty of one-way love and the angst that comes with it.
Honey and Clover (live-action movie) Good Covers pretty much the first season of the anime. Well done.
Honey and Clover II (TV) Decent I like the first episodes focused on Ayumi. The later ones about Hagu were bleh mainly due to the fact that I just can't believe that shattered glass falling on you can render you cripple for so long. Such bs. :p But I like the honey and clover bread ending scene.
Howl's Moving Castle (movie) So-so There were some harder to understand/believe/plot holes parts. It's pretty and has some good characters but story is lacking.
Hunter X Hunter (TV) Good Where Naruto ripped from, slow pace at times.
Hunter X Hunter (OAV) Excellent Exciting conclusion for a character's quest.
Hunter X Hunter: G I Final (OAV) Good Continues GI, starts rather boring (training) but gets good from the dodge ball game onward. Good ending.
Hunter X Hunter: Greed Island (OAV) Decent kinda boring
I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying (TV) Good Fun short episodes about otaku-ness.
I Can't Understand What My Husband is Saying: 2nd Thread (TV 2) Good Just as good as the first season.
Initial D (TV) Good 65% racing and 35% love. Pretty good drama.
Initial D (live-action movie) So-so The races are nice, drama is unsatisfying.
Initial D: Extra Stage (OAV) Decent OAV means boobies
Initial D: Fourth Stage (TV) Decent Ah, no Natsuki... but there was Kyoko... but then the last races sucked cuz she didn't appear anymore. So this was more like 90% racing and 10% love.
Initial D: Second Stage (TV) Very good Noooo the car! The "abyss" for Takumi of the whole series. Great drama and angst.
Initial D: Third Stage (movie) Very good A good movie that solidifies Takumi and Natsuki's relationship.
Inuyasha (TV) Very good Very fun series, good story. But like many anime, it's over before the manga is finished and leaves an open ending. It's like Kenshin mixed with FMP. ED song "My Will" is a favorite.
Inuyasha the Movie 2: The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass Decent Movies of TV series aren't as good.
InuYasha the Movie 3: Swords of an Honorable Ruler Good Movies of TV series aren't as good. Exciting intro though.
Inuyasha the Movie 4: Fire on the Mystic Island Decent Usual stand-alone movie.
Inuyasha the Movie: Affections Touching Across Time So-so Movies of TV series aren't as good.
Inuyasha: Meguri Au Mae no Unmei Koiuta (special) Good Just a review episode that sums up the past.
InuYasha: The Final Act (TV) Good though pretty late after the manga ended, the anime came back to wrap it up according to the manga. Decent happy ending.
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? (TV) Good Good pacing, action. Decent characters. Ok story. This is the only RPG anime I like so far.
Jigoku Shoujo (live-action TV drama) Decent Not bad, went a different path than anime so at least it's new material. But the big episodes of the anime is still better. I like the ending song.
Jin-Roh - The Wolf Brigade (movie) Very good I like the German weapons and armor they used.
Jubei-Chan 2: The Counterattack of Siberia Yagyu (TV) Very good More Jubei-chan goodness but the side characters are even more minor this time. The duel while falling off the cliff is really cool.
Jubei-Chan The Ninja Girl - Secret of the Lovely Eyepatch (TV) Excellent Starts off as a wacky comedy/magical-girl-monster-of-the-week fair. Then gets a bit serious without losing its comedy and still felt like the same anime. Good stuff.
Jungle Wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu Final (OAV) Decent Same as before.
Junkers Come Here (movie) Masterpiece Great story. A truely touching movie.
Kaleido Star (TV) Very good Pretty good never-give-up-fight-for-your-dream anime.
Kaleido Star: Good dayo! Goood!! (OAV) Not really good chibi kiddy stuff
Kaleido Star: Legend of Phoenix - Layla Hamilton Story (OAV) So-so Layla's not as interesting as Sora.
Kaleido Star: New Wings Extra Stage (OAV) Good Fool isn't really just a spirit afterall. Wish there was more about his past. :)
Kanon (TV 2/2006) Bad Okay, after Air, Clannad, and Kanon; I've learned finally learned my lesson of despite how popular these relationship-games-turned-anime are, I won't like them and need to avoid. So boring... *zzzzzz*
Karas (OAV) Good Very pretty and exciting action scenes. Ending kinda dumb. What's with these outrageous apocalyptic endings in animes that don't fit it.
Katanagatari (TV) Good Interesting format. One hour long episodes that air once a month. Mostly follows the monster/sword of the week per episode. Beautifully drawn, decent ending. But I never felt Shichika's unconditional devotion to Togame is believable.
Kiddy Grade (TV) Decent First 8 eps are background fillers, then story begins.
Kids on the Slope (TV) Excellent Along the lines of Beck and Nodame (musical people in love). It's also like School Rumble if the kids were more brave about confessing, and less comedy. Good ending even if it's the easy ending.
Kiki's Delivery Service (movie) Very good Entertaining, lighthearted.
Kill Bill Chapter 3: The Origin of O-Ren (movie segment) Excellent wth, this isn't anime. :p
Kimagure Orange Road (TV) Excellent Uber love triangle comedy. Superb characters. Episodic.
Kimagure Orange Road (OAV) Very good Just like the TV episodes
Kimagure Orange Road: Summer's Beginning (movie) Decent A mediocre epilogue.
Kimagure Orange Road: The Movie Very good The love triangle crashes to an end.
Kino's Journey (TV) Decent Easy going series, nothing spectacular, the episode about Kino's past is good, wish they did more of those cuz the other episodes were fairly predictable.
Kite (OAV) Good Super violent with XXX material. The sex scenes made not want to burn it... but in the end, the kickass violence won out.
Kochira Katsushika-ku Kamearikouen-mae Hashutsujo: The Movie Decent Amusing movie much like the TV series.
Koyomimonogatari (ONA) Very good Short stories that happened throughout inbetween the series. You get to see some of your favorite characters again. Concludes with a cliff hanger that leads to Owarimonogatari 2 (I assume).
Kujibiki Unbalance (OAV) Not really good If you pay close enough attention in Genshiken, then you don't need to watch this.
Last Exile (TV) Very good Good story, though when every girl started having feelings for Claus, it didn't make much sense and made the series worse. Lavie and Claus relationship to me should've stayed like Mulder and Scully's relationship; more than love. This series makes me wanna join the Air Force, even if just to be a mechanic. :)
(The) Law of Ueki (TV) Good Superstar cast, interesting fights, funny characters. Predictable plot but I enjoyed it.
A Letter to Momo (movie) Excellent Dealing with the death of loved ones is a common theme in anime. This movie does it pretty well with funny supporting characters. Very heartwarming.
Love Hina (TV) Very good Halarious, still the best harem anime.
Love Hina Again (OAV) Good So so conclusion, the manga did it much better and farther.
Love Hina Spring Special - I Wish Your Dream Good Shameless fanservice!
Love Hina X'mas Special - Silent Eve Excellent The emotional climax of Love Hina.
Lovely Complex (TV) Good Starts out strong, but like many romances it loses some of the fun after the couple finally gets together.
Lunar Legend Tsukihime (TV) Weak Despite Ciel having a cool trident and tatoos, this series is boring.
Maburaho (TV) Good Funny harem anime though it is repetitive at times.
Macross Zero (OAV) Decent Very Nice CG battles, that's about it. The plot is very predictable and boring.
Magic Knight Rayearth (TV) So-so Not bad magic girl anime. There's something cool about girls, swordplay, magic, and mechs mixed together. Overly emotional at times.
Magic Knight Rayearth 2 (TV 2) Weak Girls return to finish what they started.
Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi (TV) Excellent Funny parody anime of parallel universes, more plot and continuous than Excel Saga.
Mahoromatic - Automatic Maiden (TV) Excellent Good job by Gainax to turn something as sexist as a girl wishing to be a maid into something not so demeaning. Fun, meaningful, and entertaining, boobies in almost every episode. ^.^
Mahoromatic: Something More Beautiful (TV) Very good For those interested in how it ends. Wraps it up well, a bit confusing like other Gainax endings.
Mahoromatic: Summer Special Decent Like a filler episode of Something More Beautiful. Watch it before ep10.
Maid Sama! (TV) Not really good I think this is suppose to be shoujo but the characters are weak and almost everything geared toward a male audience. It has some good moments though.
MAOYU (TV) Good Like Spice and Wolf with macro economics. Better in the sense more progress is make than Spice and Wolf but the relationship between the main couple isn't as well done. The battle scenes are like summary instead of actually important to the story. Ep9 does have the best inspirational speech I've ever seen in anime. Lots of story left.
Martian Successor Nadesico (TV) Very good (dub & sub) Funny parody of mech anime. It's like Love Hina in space also.
Martian Successor Nadesico: The Motion Picture - Prince of Darkness Good (dub & sub) More serious than the TV. No "baka" from Ruri. All characters are still true to their nature, even Akito despite his quest for revenge.
(The) Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (TV) Masterpiece Mixes a couple of genres together with a twist of Haruhi. Even without a solid ending; the comedy, storytelling, and uniquness of this series is enough to earn a Masterpiece rating. "Boredom is a horrible thing. However, Haruhi got up off her butt and did something about it. She set out to change the whole world. While she didn't quite pull that off (yet), she did manage to change the lives of everyone around her. If there's only one thing that's to be learned from Haruhi, it's that doing what you want is the only way to escape all the hum-drum that is modern society. And, most importantly, it lets us believe that if we wish hard enough and take the initiative, maybe something truly interesting will come our way." -FatPianoBoy
(The) Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (TV 2009 renewal) Decent Animates some of the missing story. Endless Summer arc sucks. Missing some of the coolness and funny torment-Mikuru-chan of the first season.
Mezzo (TV) Decent Episodic, best to watch it slowly.
Mezzo Forte (OAV) Decent Saw the no-sex version. The action is good. Entertaining.
Midori Days (TV) Excellent Very funny and surprising. The excellent characters make this great.
Millennium Actress (movie) Decent Well animated and nice story. Wouldn't really watch it again.
Minami-ke (TV) Very good Funny slice of life with occasional touching moments that show how much the sisters love each other. Like Azumanga Daioh. Episodes are composed of multiple short stories that are quick to the jokes. All three sisters are bosses in their own ways. Haruka is the queen. Kana is the general. Chiyaki is the princess.
Minami-ke Tadaima (TV) Very good The same as other seasons.
Minami-ke: Betsubara (OAV) Very good The same as other seasons. Couldn't find an English sub so watched it on youtube with Spanish subs.
Minami-ke: Okaeri (TV) Very good The same as other seasons.
Minami-ke: Okawari (TV) Very good The same as other seasons.
Minami-ke: Omatase (OAV) Very good The same as other seasons.
Mobile Suit Gundam Seed (TV) Very good Decent angsty mecha anime. Some of the main characters are pretty annoying at first. But they develop into better people that cry less. Or die. :p
Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny (TV) Very good More crybabies but you'll get used to them. LOL.
Mobile Suit Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz (OAV) So-so It seemed cooler the first time I watched it.
Monogatari Series Second Season (TV) Very good Yatta! More bakemonogatari! Didnt care about shinobu's arc much. Really enjoyed Nadeko's yandere transformation.
Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit (TV) Masterpiece Awesome fast pace start and fight scenes at the start. Slows down a bit but stays good throughout the rest of the series. One of the more realistic anime in the sense that the people are not crazy or evil. But pragmatic and believe in their own morals/justice.
Motto To Love Ru (TV) Decent Much the same as before, still entertaining
Mujin Wakusei Survive (TV) Excellent Surprisingly intense for a series for kids. Very good characters and development. Excellent ending.
Murder Princess (OAV) Good Good animation, fun characters, decent premise and story though predictable. The opening song is so cool
My Bride is a Mermaid (TV) Good Predictable wacky romantic comedy. Making the girl's family to be yakuza is a funny twist.
My Neighbor Totoro (movie) Good A very kiddy movie.
My-HiME (TV) Decent Sailor Moon with more sorrow, fanservice, and explosions.
Nadia - The Secret of Blue Water (TV) Very good Pretty good, but it could've been even better if they weren't so eager to show Nadia doing "women's work." Also, it'd be better without the epilogue... ;)
NANA (TV) Masterpiece Shoujo anime that shows superb character development and how people's heart can change. So unrequited... sigh.
Naruto Shippūden (TV) Very good Everyone more mature now. Serious battles are fought, people die (and get resurrected). They finally beat the final boss but Sasuke is still a stubborn emo little bitch. Oh well, finally it ended, I can stop following it now. Won't be bothering with Boruto.
Naruto the Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow So-so Started off good. Just got cheesier and cheesier towards the end.
Naruto: Akaki Yotsuba no Clover o Sagase (OAV) Decent A side story, good cuz it doesn't drag like the show.
Natsuiro no Sunadokei (OAV) Weak 2 doormat crybaby girls don't work so well in a love triangle/harem wannabe. Especially if it's only 2 ep long.
Natsume's Book of Friends (TV) Decent Episodic, very much like "Wagaya no Oinarisama" except weaker comedy, no romantic interest (unless you count the yaoi-ness), and no fanservice. More info about Reiko's past would be more interesting too.
Natsume's Book of Friends (TV 2) Decent Very much like the first season. New girl character doesn't develop into romantic interest unfortunately.
Natsume's Book of Friends (TV 3) Decent Like the other seasons of Natsume.
Natsume's Book of Friends (TV 4) Decent Like the other seasons of Natsume.
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (movie) Masterpiece This is what Miyazaki is all about. Great stand-alone movie.
Nekomonogatari (Black) (TV) Good The story about the hottest girl of the series. She's even hotter as Black Hanekawa
Neon Genesis Evangelion (TV) Excellent Very entertaining mind trip.
Neon Genesis Evangelion: Death & Rebirth (movie) Very good More mind trip.
Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion (movie) Very good Pyscho mind trip.
Night Raid 1931 (TV) Not really good An ANN reviewer compared to Ghost in the Shell for WW2 Shanghai. It's kinda like that but the characters aren't as interesting. And the group seems more ragtag than GitS one which didn't help with the slower pace of the story. The historical background was informative though.
Ninja Nonsense (TV) Very good Very funny ninja parody with a cute girl and a perverted yellow ball that talks and flies.
Ninja Scroll (movie) Good Good stand-alone movie.
Nisemonogatari (TV) Good More perverse than season1 for its service to sister-love fans. The first few episodes play like a dating game where you go from one girl to the next to talk/play-see-what-she's-doing, with her. Still as enjoyable.
Nodame Cantabile (TV) Masterpiece LOL, so funny. Great balance of silliness with solid voice acting makes this a gem.
Nodame Cantabile (live-action TV drama) Masterpiece Pretty much covers the first season of the anime. But it left out the music camp arc. The CG enhanced violence looks rather disturbing since it's live action instead of a cartoonish anime.
Nodame Cantabile: Finale (TV) Excellent Decent finish to the series though it still leaves the future not as concrete as one might hope for Nodame, but still close enough.
Nodame Cantabile: Paris (TV) Decent Not as funny and good as the first because Nodame and Chiaki already got together and missing the rest of the funny characters. So really just shows more of these 2's professional development.
Noir (TV) Weak So slow at times... moody, dark, ok fight scenes.
Now and Then, Here and There (TV) Masterpiece The best 13-ep anime I've ever seen. Even though the characters are mostly children, they are very involving and dynamic and they go through very adult and sad situations. The depicted war-time situation is very unforgiving without any of the sugar coating to make it a happy anime. The pacing is fast and the violence is explicit but not excessive. The ending song is a nice slow melody that lets me catch my breath after watching each episode. 13 episodes wraps it up nicely. Bittersweet ending. I love it!
Oh My Goddess! (OAV) So-so Cute love story.
Oh! Edo Rocket (TV) Excellent Classic Madhouse style where a couple of serious main characters with serious problems are surrounded by whimsical characters and friends. Felt like watching Jubei-chan. Sora's voice is the sweetest/most balanced feminine voice I've ever heard. Nice to hear some familiar voices from Ginjirou (Kouichi YAMADERA who did Spike) and Romi PARK (Ed, Hitsugaya, Ueki) as O-ise.
Ōkami-san & Her Seven Companions (TV) Decent Interesting allusions to fairy tails. Some characters have a little dept but this is very much a light fair.
One Piece Special: Adventure in the Ocean's Navel Good Usual movie of a long continuing series. The crew comes to a place, helps the citizens out, kick some bad guys' butts, and go on their merry way.
One Piece: Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island (movie 6) Good A nice movie that turns a mystery into a horror. The pace of the end became rather slow and felt awkard and over exaggerated.
One Piece: Chinjō Shima no Chopper Ōkoku (movie 3) Good Usual movie of a long continuing series.
One Piece: Dead End (movie 4) Good Nice stand alone movie. Nami's outfit is extra spicy. Only real fight is between Luffy and the bad boss.
One Piece: Defeat The Pirate Ganzak! (special) Good Decent OAV to give a general feel of the fighting in One Piece.
One Piece: Django's Dance Carnival (movie) Excellent Ya Jango!
One Piece: Mega Mecha Soldier of Karakuri Castle (movie 7) Decent Nothing special, but Nami's bouncy breasts totally ruins her image. :(
One Piece: Nejimaki Shima no Bōken (movie 2) Decent Usual movie of a long continuing series.
One Piece: Take Aim! The Pirate Baseball King (movie) Good A funny little special with voice-overs done by Buggy and Bon-Clay.
One Piece: The Curse of the Sacred Sword (movie 5) Very good Better than most other OP movies. Kept a good pace throughout the movie with some good drama and comedy and Zoro being the badass that he is.
Oreshura (TV) Very good A triangle/harem done well. Nothing revolutionary but nothing sucked. Funny and sincere. Extra point for a solid ending where the guy actually declares for a girl.
Oruchuban Ebichu (TV) Very good Hahhaha, so funny. ^.^
Our Home's Fox Deity (TV) Good Entertaining series with plenty of fanservice. Episodic, no real villain.
Ouran High School Host Club (TV) Masterpiece Reverse-harem hilarity. Of course, shoujo anime does much better drama and story than the opposite harem type animes. Good stuff. Ended very well.
Outlaw Star (TV) Decent Very predictable though still decent. Some fillers are really funny and much better than the regular story.
Owarimonogatari (TV) Good Excellent new stories, including new characters, filling in the blank during Tsubasa Tiger, and Oshino Ougi continuing her meddling for unknown reasons.
Paranoia Agent (TV) Good The trippin ending fits well with the mind trip that is the rest of the story. Kinda sad, the chief's wife.
Passage of the Stars - Birth (special) Good Nice story about Lafiel's parents. You know, in COTS, when Plakia tells Lafiel to take the shuttle and leave with Jinto, she uses the tone/style that a mother uses to her child. My Japanese class is helping a lot cuz I would've missed this subtle detail if I only understood the subtitles.
Peacemaker (TV) So-so Promising at first but became pretty boring until the last 5 episodes.
Peach Girl (TV) Excellent Angsty love triangle. Momo-chan reminds me so much of Kaname of FMP.
Penguindrum (TV) Very good Interesting anime. A fairly original female lead that is a bit twisted. Most of the characters are messed up somehow. The dark story really needs those three penguins as comic relief. Eva style psychological ending that is OK.
Perfect Blue (movie) Good Plays with your mind but never leave you lost.
Petite Princess Yucie (TV) So-so Watched the second half of it on AN On-demand. Generic shoujo but nice touching ending.
(The) Place Promised in Our Early Days (movie) Decent very pretty, but seemed kinda too long. Compress it to 60 mins would be more the director's style.
Planetes (TV) Very good Most realistic sci fi anime (no sound in space).
Please Teacher! (TV) Decent Bumbling love starved teacher... it has some good dramatic moments.
Please Teacher! (OAV) Decent Pretty funny OAV actually.
Porco Rosso (movie) Good A fun movie. Lighter than other Miyazaki's. No real villan.
Pretear (TV) Good magic-girl/male harem turns out to have some nice twists.
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon (live-action TV) Masterpiece If you don't mind the cheesy transformations and fight sequences, the characters and story is totally awesome. Think GTO Drama without the teachers, with magic girls, tripple the friendship, angst, and romance, and with the threat of world annihilation. Enjoying this makes me realize I'm a 7 year old Japanese girl. ^.^
Princess Lover! (TV) Not really good Generic harem but the main girl is so annoying to me.
Princess Mononoke (movie) Very good Violent girls are hot. O.o
Princess Nine (TV) Very good More shoujo than sports. Cheesy at times but all good. My 200th "seen all" title. :)
Princess Resurrection (TV) So-so The pace of the episodes seem slow. So kinda boring. But the characters are cool, well, not counting the generic uncool main male character. Something about a long golden hair, evil red eyes, goth dress no-nonsense chick that wields a chainsaw that is just irresistible. Actually impulsed bought her chainsaw figure for cheap ($50) but purchase was canceled due to out of stock and I'm still tempted to get it from elsewhere at the more expensive ~$70 online stores. So awesome.
Puella Magi Madoka Magica (TV) Decent Heavy on the loli with death and despair after the halfway mark. Overall, its generic and good that it's short.
R.O.D -The TV- Good The touching episodes that try to make you cry doesn't work for me. The action is cool though.
RahXephon (TV) Bad Flat characters, slow pace, boring.
Rainbow - Nisha Rokubō no Shichinin (TV) Decent I never thought a non-hentai anime could make sex so unappealing :p. But yea, child abuse, sodomy, forced prostitution... a real bummer. The first half about the group in disciplinary school was slow and pitiful. But the second half about their lives outside of jail was interesting and I like how one story's side characters help transition into the next story.
Ranma ½ OAV Good Like the TV but with only solid episodes.
Ranma ½ (TV) Good Good romantic comedy with no resolution and an enormous cast.
Read or Die (OAV) Very good Nice action packed OAV.
Record of Lodoss War (OAV) So-so Somewhat ghetto but still decent.
Revolutionary Girl Utena (TV) Very good So weird, yet good. Never ending symbolizms. Like watching a twisted version of Sailor Moon.
Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Movie Bad WTF, Utena-mobile?
Rocket Girls (TV) Very good Why do even good shows gota seem lolicon nowadays.
Rosario + Vampire (TV) Not really good Generic harem anime, some entertainment value.
Rosario + Vampire Capu2 (TV) Not really good Same as last season and no resolution.
Royal Space Force - The Wings of Honnêamise (movie) Good Realistic characters and good storytelling.
Rumbling Hearts (TV) Masterpiece Angst filled love triangle. Intense melodrama.
Rune Soldier (TV) Good First hint of a bigger plot didn't appear until like ep16. Nontheless, every episode is funny and entertaining.
Rurouni Kenshin (TV) Masterpiece My all time favorite! I enjoyed the "filler" episodes too except the dumb Fensui mini-arc at the end.
Rurouni Kenshin Part I: Origins (live-action movie) Good Was surprised to find out about this movie. Watched it within 3 days after. It more or less season1 with some of the character back-stories left out and some characters covering multiple roles. It's what you can expect squished into 2 hours. The Jin-e duel is just like the anime's, good fight to watch.
Rurouni Kenshin: Reflection (OAV) Excellent For those who want the animated ending. Though different from the manga and condensed the whole Jinchu arc into 30 mins... it's still good. Just not the same calibur as the rest of Kenshin.
Rurouni Kenshin: The Motion Picture Very good Like a mini-arc from the TV. Yahiko cries :_(. The scene of Kenshin standing among the bodies of the dead and the wails of the mourners is pretty powerful. Excessive use of the same flashback scene though.
Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal (OAV) Masterpiece The first anime I watched that got me into anime. Before it all anime were just cartoon to me. The begining is still a gut wrenching scene no matter how many times I watch it.
S.A (TV) So-so I guess this is shoujo reverse harem. But everything of this series is fairly mediocre. Main male is a super jealous type, I guess the author likes those.
Saber Marionette J (TV) Good Nice comdey/action.
Saber Marionette J Again (OAV) So-so So so OAV, but it does explain how Tiger gets repaired for season 2. Lime is so much like Sailor Moon.
Saber Marionette J to X (TV) Excellent After watching J to X, it made Saber Marionette J the only robo-girl-love series I like. The way it ended fits how Otaru views his Marionettes; as his daughters. This is how it should've been in Chobits: if I was Hideki and I take care of a naive girl (Chii) who knows nothing of the world but automatically attaches to me, she would be more of a daughter to me than a lover. Kudos to Otaru for agreeing with me :). Excellent ending for the series.
Sailor Moon (TV) Good With the monster of the week formula, Sailor Moon somehow developes a good story about love and friendship. Dubs on TV
Sailor Moon R (TV) Decent The fights between Chibi Usa and Usagi are always funny. Dubs on TV
Sailor Moon R: The Movie Decent Nice stand alone movie. The Senshi Tribute AMV I like used clips from it too.
Sailor Moon S (TV) Good My favorite season because it developes the other Sailor Senshi the most. They become much more than just supporting characters and have dreams, challenges, and worries of their own. By now the transformation and finishing move scenes are so repetitive that I just skip them.
Sailor Moon Sailor Stars (TV) Decent If you compare the first season with this final season, you can clearly see how far the girls have come and grown. Usagi's devotion to Mamoru is tested. This season is her biggest emotional gauntlet. In ep194 when she breaks down and cries and Seiya says, "Am I not good enough?" .... priceless scene, almost cried myself. And it gets worse before it gets better, poor lonely Usagi. Happy ending though, of course, for this 200 ep series that as a whole I'd consider a masterpiece.
Sailor Moon SuperS (TV) So-so An entire season focused on Chibi Usa, not very good.
Samurai Champloo (TV) Very good Similarities shared with Bebop; always traveling, always hungry, always short on money, with pasts that haunt them. Episodic, every ep is entertaining.
School Rumble (TV) Masterpiece First episodes are like Azumanga Daioh focused around a love triangle. Later a plot developes. How can heartbreaking angst be so funny?? Great jokes and timing.
School Rumble Sangakki (OAV) Not really good There is too much skipped between 2nd season and this one so it feels weak, incomplete. Also that ErixHarima no longer looks probably makes me sad. Unresolved ending, boo
School Rumble: 2nd Semester (TV) Very good Not as good as the first season. Don't like the side stories much, the basketball stuff or Ichijou. The episodes that focus on Harima's triangles are still the best.
School Rumble: Extra Class (OAV) Good Like regular TV episodes. Set before-during-after Season1.
Scrapped Princess (TV) Masterpiece An exciting 1-quest series that feels non-stop.
Shamanic Princess (OAV) Decent Pretty characters, nice fight scenes, the rest is mediocre.
She and Her Cat (OAV) Good Thought it's very much like Voices of a Distant Star... no wonder, it's by the same people. ^_^
She, The Ultimate Weapon (TV) So-so Everyone's so sad and pitiful. Got kinda sick of it and just wanted to see the end.
SHINOBI - Heart Under Blade (live-action movie) Good Different storyline but still somewhat just as good as the anime.
Slam Dunk (movie) Decent It's nice to cover one complete match within 30 mins instead of doing 2 mins of game time using 20 mins of animation.
Slam Dunk: Shōhoku Saidai no Kiki! Moero Sakuragi Hanamichi (movie) So-so Lighter than movie 2.
Slam Dunk: Zenkoku Seiha da! Sakuragi Hanamichi (movie) Decent A nice emotional game.
(The) Slayers (TV) Very good Fun slapstick comedic fantasy series with a touch of drama and action. Makes me want to play more RPG. What I love most about it is how the good guys battled the boss in the last episode, how it's a well planned attack involving everyone. Not some stupid 1 on 1 arena fighting. Supposively, Lina's voice is closest to Hayashibara's normal speech.
Slayers - The Motion Picture Good Probably the better Slayers movie in that large list of movies. Gives some history on Gourry's sword.
(The) Slayers Evolution-R (TV) Weak Conclusion to annoying mascot's quest. Nothing special.
(The) Slayers Next (TV) Excellent The best of the Slayers series, dramtic climax, Lina's choice in the last episode makes it even better.
Slayers Return (movie) Decent Funny stand alone movie
(The) Slayers Revolution (TV) So-so Nice to see more Slayers, but just a so-so story with an annoying mascot type character.
(The) Slayers Try (TV) Decent Rather a let-down after the superb Slayers Next season. The story is dragged out longer and not as interesting. The ending sucks.
Soul Eater (TV) Decent Weird premise, similar to Naruto but faster action. Stories about other students that aren't the main characters are boring and the ending was dumb.
Speed Grapher (TV) Decent The first half is good. Then it went into monster-of-the-week mode and things seems slower and boringer. I used VLC's "faster" playback option a lot then.
Spice and Wolf (TV) Decent Nothing spectacular about this. But it makes me want to play more Settlers of Catan.
Spice and Wolf II (TV) Not really good No development really except for vocal acknowledgement of of their feelings. No serious danger either. I didn't quite follow the backstabbing part from Abe at the end of that story. Partly because it seemed boring and I watched a lot of this season at 1.5x speed. But I don't think I missed much. And no conclusion, they didn't even make it to Yoitsu yet after all those dreams and premonitions of what happens after getting there. Seems like the novels are finished so maybe I'll just read those...
Spirited Away (movie) Very good Not the best Miyazaki movie IMO. The animation is excellent, the movie is funny, story is good, but the sudden love stuff seems unnecessary.
Steins;Gate (TV) Very good This must be what the mind of a schizophrenic is like. First 10 episodes is just them doing experiments and character development, but never dull. After the shit hits the fan, you feel some of that mental fatigue from Okabe as he jumps around fixing the timeline (does he even sleep?). There are still some parts I don't really understand but you can just call it time travel bullshit and leave it at that. Time machines sure are convenient.
Submarine 707R (OAV) Decent Not bad naval battles. 707's captain's wife is a hottie. His daugther depicted as one also but that's just wrong. :p
Summer Wars (movie) Excellent A good movie without anything too out-of-this-world.
Sword Art Online (TV) Weak Felt like I needed to watch this super popular anime so I'd be in the loop. Started it, stopped for a long time, and finally finished it. The main character is boring, the girl is so generic. But the ending is good enough closure for me to not want to watch any of the other seasons.
Tachikomatic Days (OAV) Good Funny, cute. ^^
Tenchi Forever!: The Movie So-so Slower and more melodramatic than the other 2 movies.
Tenchi in Tokyo (TV) Not really good A boring, monster-of-the-week style storylines.
Tenchi Muyo! (OAV 1/1992) Good The first. Good plot and character developement.
Tenchi Muyo! GXP (TV) Bad I got sick of it pretty quickly, but decided to finish watching it anyways.
Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki (OAV 2/1994) Good Continues the OAV and keeps it good. That techno BGM in the scene when Zero-Ryoko is suspended in the night sky in front of the moon... I really want it but never been able to find out what it's called.
Tenchi Muyo! The Night Before The Carnival (OAV) Good funny episode
Tenchi the Movie - Tenchi Muyo in Love Good Nice flashy movie. But the plot is weak.
Tenchi The Movie 2 - The Daughter of Darkness Good The only Tenchi movie I like, really.
Tenchi Universe (TV) Decent Re-tells OAV1 in a streched out 26-ep series. So lots of fillers, some good, some bad.
Tenjho Tenge (TV) Decent The first fights were cool. Especially the bathroom fight. The flashback stuff is rather boring.
Tenjho Tenge: Ultimate Fight (OAV) Decent The Aya-Maya fight is rather disappointing. Was hoping they start tearing each other's clothes off but the scene ended early and didn't show the rest.
Those Who Hunt Elves (TV) So-so Slapstick comedy that's mediocre.
To Love-Ru (TV) So-so Regular harem ecchi goodness. At least the main character is honest enough to himself that he likes the status quo.
To Love-Ru (OAV) Decent Much the same as before, still entertaining
Tokyo Godfathers (movie) Very good Pretty funny.
Toradora! (TV) Excellent School Rumble without the extreme absurdities. Nice to see Horie Yui doing a different type of character: a super happy-go-lucky one. But her character, Minori, was the weakness in how this love drama concluded. If she like Ryuji also and she already knows Ryuji likes her, it was sad that she gave that up for her best friend. But I guess that's only something best friends can do. Maybe she just knew Ryuji and Taiga were the better match but... bah, stupid selfless people.
Trigun (TV) Excellent Vash is a space cowboy Kenshin.
Tsukimonogatari (TV) Good Focused on the sisters and Yotsugi.
(The) Twelve Kingdoms (TV) Very good The story is good, the first half moves quickly. Good characters, lots of characters. It spends a lot of time to setup the background of some later characters and that was kinda boring until the characters got to Kei.
Vampire Princess Miyu (OAV) Not really good Mostly dull. I guess I rated it on a curve that horror anime back in those days have slow pacing like this.
Vandread (TV) Decent Harem in space with your typical girls and a main character who's not interested in girls... Hibiki is so annoying. Catchy ending song.
Vandread: The Second Stage (TV) Decent Pretty much the same as first season. Not much character development, just storyline progression that ends with peace.
Video Girl Ai (OAV) Good Good love-triangle but it gets too weird in the end. Another great work for Hayashibara.
(The) Vision of Escaflowne (TV) Decent Has good potential... like a very ghetto FMP that's missing the comedy.
Voices of a Distant Star (OAV) Very good Very touching, very pretty animation. It's also cool to see for once it's the guy instead of the girl that has to wait at home this time. Though it looks like he's entering the fleet to chase her, at the end. Too bad just 1 episode.
Welcome to THE SPACE SHOW (movie) So-so Very much a kids movie.
Whisper of the Heart (movie) Excellent "Country Roads" in Japanese *thumbs up*
Witch Hunter Robin (TV) So-so The first half is cool... afterwards it just isn't cool anymore.
Wolf Children (movie) Very good Good movie about being a single mom and growing up with doubts. One of those movies that would only work as an anime. Transforming between wolves and cute kids would be weird in live action.
xxxHOLiC (TV) Good Good episodic anime. The comedy between Watanuki and Doumeki is what makes this anime. The Zashiki-warashi's crush on Watanuki is cute too.
xxxHOLiC: Shunmuki (OAV) Decent A 2-episode every-character-gets-screen-time story. No big development.
Yakitate!! Japan (TV) Excellent Every episode is outrageously funny.
Yawara! A Fashionable Judo Girl (TV) Excellent Very good storytelling with great humor. I feel guilty though for enjoying a series that depict being a girly-housewife to be the dream of a girl who has the potential to be so much more (world champion). I know that's part of her appeal to men. But it feels demeaning to women in general.
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou (OAV) Weak I guess anime in which nothing happens isn't for me.
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou: Quiet Country Cafe (OAV) Weak I guess anime in which nothing happens isn't for me.
Yona of the Dawn (TV) Good Checked it out and thought it be a heavy reverse harem melodrama but glad it kicked into an Scrapped Princess style adventure at the end of the first episode. Like most anime, the gathering of the team are the best episodes, which is all that this season is. I'm afraid it wouldn't be as good in the future episodes. But at least Soo-won is a very good anti-villain that you still can't figure out what he's ultimate goal makes it hard to hate him 100%.
You're Under Arrest (OAV) Decent Intro to the TV series, light comedy, episodic.
You're Under Arrest Second Season (TV) Good More of the same of Season1, nothing really developes in terms of the relationship between the characters until the last episodes. Still enjoyable.
You're Under Arrest: No Mercy! (OAV) Good The pair work for the LAPD with similar characters. But this time with real firepower.
You're Under Arrest: The Drama (live-action TV) Very good Less comedy, more drama. 9 episodes only so never feels slow.
You're Under Arrest: The Motion Picture So-so Serious tone, very different from the series. Not funny :(
your name. (movie) Masterpiece Saw this movie first on the airplane. It's not super deep or epic but almost everything about it is perfect. How Taki and Mitsuha fall for each other could've used more development but that might have slowed the movie down too much so that part was handled by a montage of their body swap antics. Watched it twice on LAX-TPE, again on HKG-KUL, again on KUL-TPE, and again on the way back TPE-LAX. One of those companies I can always watch again. Could be ported into a 13 episode series easily too.
Yugo the Negotiator (TV) Decent A lot of talking and luck involve. Or maybe he's just that confident.
Zipang (TV) Good The only anime that I know of that deals with the military side of WW2. Too bad it's a "to be continue" type of ending.

Will not finish Rating Comment
Angel Heart (TV) Not really good The first episodes have good pacing, but after that, it slows down and gets really slow at times. Finally gave up on it at ep33. Not much comedy.
Avenger (TV) Weak
Baccano! (TV) Like Durarara, I don't like these series with a ton of characters. Only saw the first ep.
(The) Big O (TV) So-so
Bodacious Space Pirates (TV) Weak Promising after first couple episodes. But it got boring after she became the captain officially. Too light, pirating to them is putting on a show instead of real life and death situation. Even after picking up the princess, the pacing and action just seem too slow.
Burst Angel (TV) Bad So bad I could only skim the first 5 episodes in fast forward mode. Monster of (every two) week style. Poor storytelling. Acting/dialog so bad that even in Japanese to a non-native speaker it sounds bad.
Buso Renkin (TV) Saw the first arc, didn't really feel like watching the rest. It was okay, predictable, annoying stereotypical main characters.
Case Closed (TV) Decent Watched almost all of the 51 episodes on Adult Swim. Then I skipped to ep376 and watched the RAW. It seems that Conan is still small after 376 episodes and his friends still dunno he's Jimmy/Shinichi. :p
Claymore (TV)
Darker than Black - Kuro no Keiyakusha: Gaiden (OAV) Looks like it's going into the loli-mindless-robot-love path. Also can't find anymore episodes, oh well.
Destiny of the Shrine Maiden (TV)
Digimon Adventure (TV) Awful
Dragon Ball (TV)
Dragon Ball GT (TV) Bad
Dragon Ball Z (TV) Bad
Durarara!! (TV) It's got some entertainment value but I really don't like series with too many characters like this one. Gave up on it after a few eps, skimmed through the last episodes to see it's really still the same. I just wanted to see what happens with Celty so looked up its Wikia.
Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino (TV) So-so Saw the first 3 eps; the girls being used as investigators instead of assassins, so that's kinda boring and less killing action than the first season. Fansubbers being slow so probably won't bother watching the rest.
Hayate the Combat Butler (TV) Weak Not much substance to this wacky anime. Nagi looks too young to be a highschooler, feels pedo. Sigh, the direction anime is going. :p
Jing: King of Bandits (TV) Bad Watched the first 9 episodes or so of it on Anime Network On Demand before I cancelled my cable service. But it was pretty boring.
Kill la Kill (TV) Weak I watched some of this, and then skipped to the end because I couldn't handle another Gurren Lagan anime but I guess I still wanted to see what happens.
Kochira Katsushika-ku Kamearikouen-mae Hashutsujo (TV) Good Saw some while in Taiwan. A couple episodes were outrageously funny, most were chuckle-funny. Too bad too obscure/old/many episodes for fansubbers to do the whole series in English.
Lupin the 3rd (TV) So-so
Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic (TV) Not really good Hard to say if I like this or not, but it wasn't compelling enough for me to keep watching it after a few episodes.
Mao-chan (TV) So-so
Mobile Suit Gundam Wing (TV) Decent
Mononoke (TV) Awful Too metamorphic and skipping around scenes of dreamlike trip to be enjoyable. Might work if I was high.
Mushi-Shi (TV) Watch first few episodes. Nice animation, slow paced storytelling. Hellaury watched the rest and he didn't like it so I most likely won't finish.
Najica Blitz Tactics (TV) Weak
Naruto (TV) Decent The next DBZ. The first season/arc is the only good part really. The rest feels slow but I guess that's cuz I have to wait a week for each new ep but I didn't have to when I started watching it until I caught up. I'm not a fan of arena fighting either. Stopped watching somewhere during the find-sasuke fillers. And saw the last eps before shippuden.
Oban Star-Racers (TV)
Pokémon (TV) Bad
(The) Prince of Tennis (TV) Have all, saw some, not enough drama too keep going. Seems bland.
Sakura Wars (TV)
Shaman King (TV)
Slam Dunk (TV) Decent Watched a lot of it in Taiwan long time ago, would like to watched the end of it at least. Eventually. But too lazy to get it right now... and the near future.
Slayers Excellent (OAV) Decent
(The) SoulTaker (TV)
Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko (TV) So-so Thought a show with Megumi HAYASHIBARA , Minami TAKAYAMA, Satsuki YUKINO, and Yuko MIYAMURA voicing the lead characters would be awesome but so far (ep 6) it's been boring. Fansubbers seemed to have dropped this project.
Stellvia (TV) Weak Like watching a school-yard comedy in space, without the comedy. Boring characters.
Tenchi Muyo! Ryo Ohki (OAV 3/2003) So-so Much like the previous 2 OAVs, pacing is slower. Not funny at all. Ryo-Ohki is so annoying as a humanoid, cuter as a cabbit. :p
Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE (TV) Bad drags so slow, gave up on it after watching the first 10 eps, and skipping to ep25 and saw that it's still not getting anywhere.
You're Under Arrest (TV) Good Saw about half of it. Light, episodic, funny.
