Boys Over Flowers (TV) Good When I saw that I was showing something called Boys over Flowers at Sugoicon a few years ago, my heart sank. Happily, I was pleasantly surprised that this shoujo actually has a likeable main character who isn't simply a whiny girl who bemoans her romance issues or needs rescuing. In fact, most of the cast is pretty interesting and likeable. I'd watch more of this in a heartbeat, but it's just not something that I would buy.
(The) Story of Saiunkoku (TV) Excellent What Fushigi Yugi should have been! A likeable female protaganist, lots of pretty boys with personality, cute interactions and politics!
Elf Princess Rane (OAV) Good Wandered in on this at a con, and it seemed like it would be a good show for those pining for more Dragon Half. It was over-the-top comedy, completely pointless, and in a fantasy setting. I just wish I'd seen the beginning. Planning on buying this to add to my collection of comedy fantasy.
(The) Legend of the Galactic Heroes (OAV) Masterpiece This is possibly the most amazing anime I've ever seen. I can't judge for sure since I've stopped watching it temporarily due to the death of a character. I'm scared to see the psychological repercussions on his friend and how it affects the war. Everything is thought through, realistic, and even minor characters are developed.
Coyote Ragtime Show (TV) Good This is basically what you would get if Cowboy Bebop and Outlaw Star had a kid, and you added in some goth-loli robotic assassins and Ocean's 11. Somehow it works out, and is a lot of fun. The fact that the main character is is insanely charismatic pulls the show together.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Legend of the Supermutants (OAV) Excellent This is amazingly, incredibly bad. In fact, it's so bad, that it's one of the most amusing anime I've ever seen. Combine oldschool TMNT, Transformers, a bunch of anime cliches, and a bunch of B movies, and you have this gem. Highlights include: Krang letting all of the foot soldiers go on vacation (Hawaiian shirts included), NASA portrayed as McDonalds munching idiots, Splinter being able to do ANYTHING, Krang and Shredder bickering like a married couple, and so much more. Bonus: Turtles hitching a ride on the space shuttle.
Angelic Layer (TV) Good This benefits from having lovely CLAMP character designs. It's pretty cute, and the battles with the dolls are fun to watch. However, some of the plot devices are silly (I'll refrain from spoilers), and one of the characters comes off as a creepy pedophile, though he's not. I'd watch more if given the chance, but from the first disc, it was nothing special, and not something I'd buy.
Golden Boy (OAV) Very good Perverted, hilarious, fun!
Maze (TV) Low quality...yeah...but it's kinda funny :D
Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage (TV) Very good Loads of fun, haven't finished since I realized it was licensed...too bad Geneon died.
Fighting Spirit (TV) Masterpiece I really like the characters...enough so that I like watching this despite not being a fan of boxing.
Elfen Lied (TV) Good Honestly, I rather liked this one for the violence. It's the sort of thing I would watch in a bad mood to blow off some steam.
Kimagure Orange Road (TV) Very good Another romantic comedy that I ended up screening at a con, this one I actually bought several discs of. I'd call it the best romantic comedy anime I've seen, simply because it's the only one that I liked enough to buy. Since the license expired, I plan on buying the rest of the discs as soon as I have the money.
Dragon Ball (TV) Good Amusing, but not enough so that I would actively hunt down more of it.
Daddy Long-Legs (TV) Decent
Den-noh Coil (TV) Excellent
KenIchi the Mightiest Disciple (TV)
Lupin III: Part II (TV) Very good
Mushi-Shi (TV) Excellent
