Jin-Roh - The Wolf Brigade (movie) Masterpiece Intelligent, well-written, well-executed character drama; everything is stellar-artwork, amazing animation; characterizations, plot including twists and turns; poignant emotional moments; will leave an indelible impression in my memory
Kino's Journey (TV) Masterpiece Although artwork is unremarkable, the story far makes up for it. Surprising, bizarre, sometimes disturbing studies in possibilities of facets of human nature. An illuminating look into the human psyche. A must see for stellar intelligent, intellectual entertainment.
(The) Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (TV) Masterpiece Watched Volumes 1-3; Brilliantly crazy; great situational and character driven comedy; more subtle storytelling makes it a cut above other series; very attractive artwork and great animation
Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal (OAV) Masterpiece
Cowboy Bebop (TV) Excellent one of the premier, must see anime series; although episodic, characters are distinctive, appealing, cool, well-developed and sympathetic
Death Note (TV) Excellent lucky enough to start watching from episode 1, will watch to end; smart, well animated battle of wits plot; American VAs well cast; I especially like the VA for L.
Ghost in the Shell (movie) Excellent
Gunslinger Girl (TV) Excellent
Gurren Lagann (TV) Excellent
Karas (OAV) Excellent visually fantastic, good story, very nice character designs, great fighting sequences
Spirited Away (movie) Excellent A cliche-free children's movie. Very unlike and incomparable to American animated children's movies. Simple, subtle, unsentimental, but compelling story. Fantastic artwork.
Sword of the Stranger (movie) Excellent
Tokyo Godfathers (movie) Excellent excellent story, surprising humor throughout, especially in the facial expressions of Miyuki; great color-rich hues of dark browns, good animation; quality animation and artwork for an anime movie
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust (movie) Excellent
Witchblade (TV) Excellent
Akira (movie) Very good worthy of being called groundbreaking, still relevant anime, however, pervasive nihilistic atmosphere not to my taste for repeat viewing
Black Jack The Movie Very good very good plot, great medical details; melodramatic preachy talk lowered the rating
Bleach the Movie: Memories of Nobody Very good enjoyable watching practically all the characters in action; standard bad guy, wished he would have been more original and interesting; Ichigo and his gang were fun as usual
Blood: The Last Vampire (movie) Very good very good horror action story; very good artwork and animation, amazing use of CG; quite clever in the dub version that characters are seen speaking Japanese and that dialogue is subtitled; definitely can tell there's more to the story; some details not explained or very little explained; should have been longer or should have cut out extraneous parts
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion (TV) Very good
Fullmetal Alchemist: The Movie - Conqueror of Shamballa Very good not as good as the series, but wraps up some loose ends satisfying (except for more development between Ed and Winry - I wanted something way different than what actually happened)
Hell Girl (TV) Very good
Howl's Moving Castle (movie) Very good visually spectacular first half, then plot didn't make sense after the halfway mark; romance underdeveloped
Macross Plus (OAV) Very good
Ninja Scroll (movie) Very good
Noein - to your other self (TV) Very good watching from episode 1 from reruns currently running on sci-fi; enjoyable; liked the sci-fi plot; Karasu is sexy in that classic angry, broody masculine way
Perfect Blue (movie) Very good very good suspense plot
Read or Die (OAV) Very good
X (movie) Very good Very confusing if you haven't read the manga like I have, especially the 1st 1/2 hour to an hour. Very stylish looking, great animation. Some relationships revealed at the end made the characters more interesting; worth reading the manga if you want the complete story
Appleseed (OAV) Good
Kai Doh Maru (OAV) Good
Kiki's Delivery Service (movie) Good lovely artwork, but what's the point of the story? If Kiki needed to leave home to train as a witch, how does running her own delivery service accomplish that?
Negadon: The Monster from Mars (movie) Good
(Le) Portrait de Petite Cossette (OAV) Good great visuals; a good story about an unhealthy love affair that includes a nice twist
Speed Grapher (TV) Good
Strait Jacket (OAV) Good
Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie Good
Tactics (TV) Good
Tenjho Tenge: Ultimate Fight (OAV) Good
Street Fighter Alpha (OAV) So-so
Twilight of the Dark Master (OAV) So-so
Dead Leaves (OAV) Not really good Bizarre, Ultra-violent, Ultra profanity-strewn, plausible plot, ultimately too extreme for my taste, non-ending
Street Fighter Alpha: Generations (OAV) Not really good
