009-1 (TV) Decent
5 Centimeters Per Second (movie) Excellent This is a great snap back to reality after watching so many high-school lovey-lovey comedies. The artwork is beautifully done. The lighting and movement really feel life-like. The story is a romance, but a more realistic, not-the-happy-ending kind of romance. Not a bad everyone-dies ending, just not happily-ever after. It feels honest and true-to-life. The pace can move a little slowly at times, but those times tend to build up the desperation in the viewer similar to what the character is feeling. Overall, this is a very emotionally engaging story that is well worth the watch.
(The) Abashiri Family (OAV) Not really good
Ah My Buddha (TV) Good Pretty good overall. Yeah, it's another harem/supernatural anime, but the character development is done pretty well, and the overall plot is pretty fun too. Plenty of ecchi moments and goofy scenarios to go around.
Akikan! (TV) Decent
Amaenaide yo!! Katsu!! (TV) Good Great continuation of the first series. Picks up where the first 13 episodes left off. More of the same, with some new characters introduced/developed in this arc.
Amazing Nurse Nanako (TV) So-so Ecchi, ecchi, ecchi! Still not quite sure what to make of the plot on this one. It's good for a few laughs, but don't expect anything that can be taken seriously.
Angel Beats! (TV) Very good
(The) Animatrix (OAV) Decent
Appleseed (movie) Good
Appleseed: Ex Machina (movie) Good
Astarotte's Toy (TV) Good
Asura Cryin' (TV) Good
Asura Cryin' 2 (TV) Good
Azumanga Daioh (TV) Very good Hilarious, cute, and mostly family-friendly (apart from the occasional mild cursing, use of alcohol, and an overtly pedophilic-yet-harmless side character).
Bamboo Blade (TV) Very good This show ended up being better than expected. The characters really make the show. The plot is only so-so fare, but what it lacks in plot, it makes up for in character development. It can be really touching, or really hilarious. Definitely worth a try!
Battle Girls - Time Paradox (TV) Good
Battle Programmer SHIRASE (TV) Decent
(The) Big O (TV) Decent
Black Lagoon (TV) Very good Sweet action series! A bit heavy on the language and violence, but I suppose it could've been even rougher if they wanted it to be. The characters are great, the animation is crisp and smooth, and the voice actors did a pretty good job too.
Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage (TV) Very good
Black Rock Shooter (OAV) Very good Interesting "alternate/divergent reality" (?) take on things. It could've been drawn out into a longer series, but it managed to take care of a lot of the typical "slice-of-life" development in quick montages and keep the story telling & characters in the forefront. The ending is left open, and a lot of explanations are left up to the viewer's imagination.
Blade of the Immortal (TV) Good
Bleach the Movie: Memories of Nobody Decent
Blood+ (TV) Good The story line, pacing, and character development are all great! Visuals and voice acting are done well too. At times, the story can move kinda slowly, but there's usually another build-up of action coming shortly. The plot and characters are emotionally involving as well. While the whole thing may be a bit gory and violent for some, it's definitely got a great combination of drama and intrigue as well.
Blood: The Last Vampire (movie) So-so Kinda short, and the dialog is a little weak. Character development could've used some more emphasis. It's decent in it's own right, but there are better titles out there. It does provide a good fill-in to the Blood+ TV series and a glimpse at another piece of the puzzle.
Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan (TV) Decent Cute, yet disturbingly bloody. Oh yeah, and it's pretty much on the ecchi side of things. Hilarious though.
Blue Exorcist (TV) Very good
Blue Gender (TV) Decent This one moves a little slow at times. OK, most of the time. While it stands as a cautionary tale against today's modern, wasteful, environmentally unconcerned society, it feels a bit too drawn out by the final episodes. There is plenty of action, even some attempts at romance. The characters are developed fairly well. And the overall plot isn't too bad. It just seems to suffer from issues with pacing and rehashing. Still good, but don't expect to be on the edge of your seat much.
Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan Second (OAV) Decent Same as the first... More cute, ecchi, violent comedy.
A Bridge to the Starry Skies (TV) Good
Burst Angel (TV) Good
Castle in the Sky (movie) Very good
Cat Planet Cuties (TV) Good
Chaos;HEAd (TV) Good
Chibits (special) Very good This is a "Must Watch" item if you've seen Chobits at all. Hilariously cute! Plenty of Sumomo antics to go around, with a surprise twist at the end.

Durarara!! (TV) Excellent
Eden of the East (TV) Excellent
Eden of the East: The King of Eden (movie) Very good
Elfen Lied (TV) Very good Blood & Dismemberment. Lots of it. And naked chicks. Despite (or maybe because of) all the graphic details, this is actually a very well written emotional drama and love-story. It's got its cute moments, but overall, pretty serious. The "villains" are perhaps a little cliched, so that part of the story is a little lacking. The ending (if you can stand the gore that long) is perhaps a little weak and leaves some open questions, but is also pretty powerful at the same time.
Ergo Proxy (TV) Very good A journey of self-discovery in a decaying civilization. That's probably the simplest way to sum up this series. It is rather beautifully done for being mostly dull, muted, dark and drab colors. Several of the characters are actually quite endearing too. But, like many thought provoking anime, this one seems to suffer from pacing as well. It just moves too slow at times. Although that does add to the quiet-desperation atmosphere of the journey. Even so, there are times when the audience will be leaps and bounds ahead of the characters in comprehending the story. Still worth the watch, though.
Escaflowne: The Movie Decent
Eureka Seven (TV) Very good Wow! Probably one of the best mecha-related romance stories recently. There is plenty of action for mecha fans. Even sky-surfing for the surf/skate/snowboard crowd. Not to mention a bit of sports, pop music culture, and teen idol action. It's also a great military drama with conspiracies, factions, and conflict hiding around the next corner. And it has a great mysterious religious connection involved in the story as well. Unlike most mecha series, the emphasis really isn't on the mecha, although they do play a significant part in the story. The characters and their relationships take more of a front row, and are very well developed. This is definitely one series not to be missed!
Excel Saga (TV) Good Plenty of craziness to go around with this one! There's a story-line behind the madness somewhere (I think). Somehow they managed to keep the insanity entertaining for 26 episodes. It's almost impossible to keep track of how many other series they make use of or poke fun at. It's kind of a tongue-in-cheek joke pointed at anime in general. A must-watch for any otaku (they're the only ones who will understand a lot of the "inside" jokes anyhow!)

Futakoi Alternative (TV) Very good
Ga-Rei-Zero (TV) Good
Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight! (TV) Good
Gantz (TV) Very good NOT FOR THE FAINT-OF-HEART (or stomach). Between the foul language, sexual content, violence, and graphic deaths, this series could turn many viewers away pretty quickly. The characters have good development and back-story for the most part, and the overall plot makes for a captivating story. Seeing how the main character(s) change and mature through the ordeals presented to them makes the series worth watching.

Last Exile (TV) Very good This could've been a superb epic story if the ending had been a little better. It just felt like the plot kind of unraveled a bit at the end. It was still a very gripping tale though. Definitely NOT all sunshine and roses. Although, with the darkness, there was always a glimmer of hope to hold on to.

Master of Martial Hearts (OAV) Decent Typical chick-fighting action. I was expecting the plot to go in a different direction than it did, but it was not a bad surprise. Pretty dark ending though.
(The) Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (TV) Very good
(The) Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya (ONA) So-so
Mermaid Forest (TV) Very good Uplifting this is NOT. While it is a romance, it's also heavily tragic and even gruesome at times. Not to say that those are bad points. In fact, the darkness of the story, or rather all the sub-stories involved, make this almost an epic experience. There is a good balance of dark and light in the story telling. Not everything turns out happily-ever-after. But in a story dealing with immortality and the loneliness and isolation it brings, too much "happy" would ruin the mood. Overall, this is an exceptionally well done story for those who can stand the more gruesome parts of it.
Metropolis (movie) Masterpiece Interesting story, smooth and beautiful animation, great jazz soundtrack... Lots to love about this movie!

Penguin Girl (ONA) Very good Another insane, hilarious series. Ridiculous barely begins to cover most of the show. It's great for a laugh though, and the characters are all pretty lovable in their own ways.

(The) Place Promised in Our Early Days (movie) Decent
Popotan (TV) Good This is a cute, heartwarming story that manages to make dandelions a little more interesting. The characters are fun and lively, although there are still serious and mysterious parts of the show as well. Though not all of the plot mysteries are revealed in the end, it's still a great little story. Oh, and there's boobs. Lots of boobs. Well, ok, so it's the same sets of boobs, but they make lots of appearances. Hey, it's not tagged as ecchi for nothing!

Spice and Wolf (TV) Very good Who would've though that a story about economics would be so interesting! While there is a heavy dose of pseudo-educational material included in this one, the overall story and characters are charming and captivating as well. The worst part of the series is that it is only 13 episodes long. Here's hoping for a season 2!

xxxHOLiC (TV) Excellent
Yomigaeru Sora - RESCUE WINGS (TV) Excellent This has got to be one of the best "real-life" anime's I've ever seen! The characters and scenarios are very well developed and believable. The circumstances really draw you in. Things don't always end perfectly, but that realism makes this even better.
Yonna in the Solitary Fortress (movie) Decent
Zaion: I Wish You Were Here (ONA) Good A bit short, but I'm not sure if it would've been any better if it had been longer. It's a semi-tragic love story at its core. There are a lot of unanswered questions in the plot and character development, but it's a fairly satisfying story in the end.
Zakuro (TV) Excellent
