Cowboy Bebop (TV) Excellent A classic, must-see anime.
Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger (TV) Excellent A highly enjoyable additional season to HnI/Fighting Spirit. The latter half of the series though focused entirely on Takamura, so Ippo fans may be disappointed.
Fighting Spirit (TV) Masterpiece A shocker. I really thought I would hate it, and it currently ranks number one on my anime. Ippo is amazing. Fighting music is awesome. Sat on the edge of my seat during some fights. Some people may get turned off by the animation style, but it really does suit the boxing gym characters.
Hatsukoi Limited (TV) Excellent A surprisingly fun ecchi high school romance. Normally avoid ecchi like the plague, but the situations were so funny and felt mostly real, and the characters interesting, that the fanservice was only a minor annoyance. A very pretty anime, too, with a soft palette, and the characters are very distinctive looking.
Emma: A Victorian Romance (TV) Masterpiece Absolutely beautiful story of an upstairs/downstairs relationship in Victorian England, of all places. Stunning detail. A lot of love went into this anime.
Salaryman Kintaro (TV) Good Actually would've rated it higher, except the whole mother/daughter fighting over Kintaro, with the daughter being 14, and then having the daughter be a nude model and having salarymen drool all over her completely put me off the anime. I managed to finish it out, but by the end, I had sort of lost all interest and stopped rooting for Kintaro. In a weird way, it was almost a harem anime for adults with all the women fighting for Kintaro's affections.
Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage (TV) Excellent An even better second season with creepy "vampire" twincest and simply kickass gun-toting nuns. Also a trip for Rock back home to Japan that doesn't really go all that well.
Fruits Basket (TV) Excellent Another classic, must-see. Pretty boys, great story, cute animals, good humor, and just a very touching anime.
D.N.Angel (TV) Good Bishie eye candy that I almost dropped in the middle due to episodic plots, but am glad I stuck it out through because the friendship developments that come later on are really well done.
Ceres, Celestial Legend (TV) Decent Bloody violent anime, especially shocking after watching not nearly as violent Fushigi Yuugi. Also creepy incest. Yech.
Basilisk (TV) Very good Completely predictable R&J type anime. But ninja magic powers are fun.
RahXephon (TV) Masterpiece Complex, beautiful, and above all, a love story. I normally find mecha very uninteresting, but RahXephon managed to snag a top 5 spot of my all time favorites. Episode 19 will rip you apart.
Cardcaptor Sakura (TV) Very good Drags a little long in some places with filler, but a really adorable children's anime without being over the top cutesy.
Aquarian Age - Sign for Evolution (TV) Decent Eh. The band's music was TERRIBLE. Action scenes were fun though. And the soundtrack (minus band songs) is pretty awesome.
Descendants of Darkness (TV) Decent Ehhhhhhhh... shounen-ai, of sorts... but it didn't really keep me interested. However, watching the dub provided no end of hilarity with the terrible voice acting and actor choice.
Detroit Metal City (OAV) Excellent Fabulously crude and hilarious. Totally ruined my vocabulary for the time being with all the cussing. Marathoned this and laughed all night. Don't be eating during any "Demon Jewel" scenes, btw.
Read or Die (OAV) Excellent It's ME. With magic paper powers. I can't help but love this anime.
Hellsing (TV) Good Liked the first half, didn't like the second half so much. Found out later, second half was not canon. Enjoying the OAVs a lot more, plus the animation is better in the OAV.
Batman: Gotham Knight (movie) Good Mix of good and simply all right. I do appreciate them keeping the original B:TAS VA for Bruce.
Azumanga Daioh (TV) Masterpiece One of my favorite series of all time. Great school comedy with hilariously memorable characters.
Oreimo (TV) Not really good Overall this was rated Not Really Good because I loved half of it and despised half of it. It also ended up in the not worth buying side because there's just too much bad over the good. Loved the otaku fandom jokes. Hated the sis-con crap.
Toradora! (TV) Masterpiece Possibly the best romantic comedy anime ever made. Unpredictable, amazingly real, complex characters, non-stereotypical behavior and story. I probably cried as much as I laughed.
Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok (TV) Very good Pretty good magical boy anime. And I like the incorporation of Norse mythology.
Antique Bakery (TV) Excellent Really well done and sticks pretty closely to the manga story. Some people were bothered by the CG animation backgrounds, but I didn't mind, especially since the manga-ka does very limited background art. I love Ono; he's so cute!
Ouran High School Host Club (TV) Masterpiece Satirizes the bishie/reverse harem anime splendidly. I loved Haruhi, the anti-stereotypical female lead amidst a sea of beautiful, silly men.
Shonen Onmyouji (TV) Very good So glad they decided to finish releasing this in the US. IIRC, this was marketed as shounen-ai-ish, but it really isn't. It's a story about friendship, even if the anime is full of bishounen spirit guardians. I really enjoyed this anime.
Mononoke (TV) Masterpiece The Medicine Seller returns from Bakeneko/Ayakashi: Samurai Horror Tales in five more short arcs with more exquisitely lovely paper art.
Fake (OAV) Good This needs to be expanded into a real series. It would be SO much better. One of my favorite manga, and they took the least interesting, most blah storyline out of it.
Baccano! (TV) Excellent Unique setting in 1930s America and great animation. Bloody violent. Literally.
Mushi-Shi (TV) Excellent Utterly gorgeous relaxing anime about a man who travels around collecting various "spirits" or helping people escape/deal with the effects of them. Hard to marathon, easier to watch 1-2 eps. at a time.
Black Lagoon (TV) Very good Very good action anime with modern day pirates.
