Air (TV) Masterpiece The epitome of sad anime. The ending is sad but the entire journey is wonderful, particularly in the latter parts of the story. This is a show that makes me emotional just thinking about it. It is a little "far fetched" but if it draws you in you will likely be lost in it. It's a fantastic show and definitely one of my favorites. The character designs are attractive (IMO), the music (especially the OP) is outstanding, and the visuals are excellent as well.
Air (movie) Decent If this were on it's own, I might rate it a little higher, but it pales in comparison to the excellence of the show. The timing, mood of the scenes, lack of additional characters (except Cameos) , are what is lacking. It's worth seeing as an alternate telling, but there is no doubt about which is superior.
Akane Iro ni Somaru Saka (TV) Good
Asura Cryin' (TV) Good
Berserk (TV 1997) Excellent Solid series with nice art, good animation, and a great story. Only down-point would be the very weak ending which can be quite a frustration if you watch this series all at once.
(The) Big O (TV) Good
Blue Gender (TV) Good
Cat Planet Cuties (TV)
A Certain Magical Index (TV) Excellent
Chaos;HEAd (TV) Very good
Chibits (special) Good Cute little short after the end of Chobits about the two little persocoms. Something you can miss, but it's short so it won't waste your time.
Chobits (TV) Excellent
Clannad (TV) Masterpiece
Claymore (TV) Masterpiece Nice art (backgrounds & character design), animation and story. A dark setting which adds a lot of interest and mystery. The organization of the plot was done very well and the execution of the fights was always fun to watch. I never felt the pace was too slow or drawn out.
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 (TV) Masterpiece
Corpse Princess: Aka (TV) Very good
Corpse Princess: Kuro (TV) Very good
Cowboy Bebop (TV) Excellent Excellent, though generally episodic anime about bounty hunters in space. The character development & interaction is great.
DearS (TV) Decent
Dragon Ball GT (TV) So-so Even for Dragon Ball fans this has got to be the weak link in the series. I commonly say "Super Saiyan 4" was the only thing cool about this series. And that was cool, but not cool enough to save GT from mediocrity.
Dragon Ball Z (TV) Excellent I can't say everyone will love DBZ. It's zany, it's drawn out, and it has it's weaknesses. But in my personal views the show is great. It has great backgrounds, cool character designs, and a lot of fun action. I also think the character development and progression in this series is cool. The plot is repetitive, but this is forgiveable (for me) because I always look forward to seeing Goku & the others rise up to meet the demands of the occasion. I much prefer the dub & the dub music on this show.
Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge (movie 5) Excellent This was my favorite of the DBZ movies, and my comments about DBZ generally apply here.
Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler (movie 6) Decent Not nearly as good as Cooler's Revenge, even though the story goes in the same repetitive "Saiyans overcome" stuff it just didn't feel right to have an ending without the fighting.
ef: a tale of memories (TV) Masterpiece Great series, manages to have 2 almost entirely separate plotlines which are both touching and romantic. It has an odd style to it that manages to be very appealing and plays on the emotions effectively
Elfen Lied (TV) Excellent
(The) Familiar of Zero (TV) Good
Fate/stay night (TV) Excellent Character designs & effects are cool in this series. Very sleek looking and everyone looks great. The combat is nice to watch and I like the character interaction particularly between Shirou & Saber, Rin & Archer.
Full Metal Panic! (TV) Excellent This series has such a great combination of everything. A lot of comedy with Sousuke & Kaname. Great mecha action, and an interesting premise/setting. All the main characters in this show are awesome and have great personality.
Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid (TV) Excellent Same as full metal panic. It does get a little weaker than FMP in the middle but comes back with a strong ending.
Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid (OAV) Very good Decent OVA about Tessa, definitely worth watching once when you get the last volume of TSR.
Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu (TV) Excellent FMP without the mecha. This is a comedy series that stands on it's own though and is totally worth seeing. Personally though, I like the mecha & action so I prefer the regular old FMP.
Fullmetal Alchemist (TV) Masterpiece FMA incorporates everything anyone could want. It definitely shows the dark & lighter sides of humanity equally. It shows real evil especially in the beginning. The combat is more about alchemist wits than about pure power so that's always fun to watch. The comedy is genuinely funny & the plot is intriguing. Ed & Al have to be the best brother paring in anime ever.
Fullmetal Alchemist: The Movie - Conqueror of Shamballa Excellent Not the perfect ending to FMA, but not a terrible ending either.
Ga-Rei-Zero (TV) Masterpiece
Geneshaft (TV) Good This is a fairly good series, I liked it but I haven't bought it because I didn't love it. It's got decent music and an interesting premise but the plot isn't as much a draw as other series. I would recommend it for someone looking for a decent futuristic series with a unique premise, much in the same vein as shows like Blue Gender or Jyu Oh Sei.
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (TV) Masterpiece One of the best looking shows ever, which is also one of the best shows in terms of having some deep philosophical questions behind the premise. Not stopping there, the series doesn't disappoint by having a lot of good action & great music.
Gunslinger Girl (TV) Excellent Great story which makes you empathize with some people who are doing a very evil thing (modifying little girls into killing machines). At every step of the process I want to believe that many of the handlers really are good people (definitely not all though), but the very concept behind the show is pretty disturbing. All of that being said the show is not fanservicy and is a pretty gritty show with some solid action & interesting character interaction.
