Haibane Renmei, Figure 17, and Cowboy Bebop for me.

But mostly I would like the current skins to work in the forums. Which they haven't done for a couple weeks now. Neutral

Mushishi, Bakeneko, and Samurai Champloo for me. I would love to have a skin with the paper art-style from Bakeneko. Mononoke is probably my most wanted license at this point.

See, favorite anime and anime skin I would like most are different things for me. Except in the case of Mushi-shi. I want vibrant colors and beautiful art, nothing too dark to look at, and so while I debated Figure 17, I ended up not voting for it as I worried it would look too...dull? Same with Haibane Renmei in some ways.
I picked Mushi-shi, Fushigi Yuugi, and Spirited Away. Or Totoro...?
I was debating between those, they would be ones I would love looking at for awhile.

I voted, but I really aren't interested in this sort of gimmick. I'll stick to the default one- doesn't turn too many heads when I'm in a crowded room.

Definitely. It was hard to choose, but that one was a must for me. I'd just love to see something stylistic from that series. I also picked Last Exile (cause I'm biased toward Range Murata's art) and Mushi-Shi. There were so many others I'd like to choose, like Lain and Figure 17.

Agreed. It would be nice if the special skins would work on all of the sections of the site.

As for me, it's ARIA, Death Note, and a write-in vote for Shugo Chara.

Lucky Star and Hellsing, preferably the OVA.

R.O.D., OMG, and... I forget the third one I picked, but I don't think it had a three letter acronym.

I ended up voting for Mushishi, Princess Tutu, and Spirited Away. Fushigi Yugi was also a top pick of mine but I just didn't know if the source material would be good enough so I picked Princess Tutu instead.

Anyway, here are some random thoughts on some of the suggestions so far...

Berserk, Cowboy Bebop, Fushigi Yuugi - Nice Series that would make good backgrounds, but I'm not sure the source material would be high enough quality.

DragonballZ, Elfen Lied, FLCL, Sailor Moon - If I could vote against these I would.

Evangelion - Too familiar as it is, no need to flood my eyes with even more of this.

Gankutsuou, Ghost in the Shell - Nice visuals, but I didn't really get into the series.

Haibane Renmei - Just way too plain.

Last Exile - Wonderful visuals, but I think I've already had my fill.

The Place Promised In Our Early Days - Nice visuals, but god was that a boring title, couldn't even finish it.

Totoro, My Neighbor - Timeless

I voted for Black Lagoon, Oh My Goddess, and X "TV". I'm a bit saddened as I see the ones that are leading the votes are too obvious really. Kind of makes me wonder why bothering to have nominations when you know it'll come down to a small handful of more current and popular titles. Oh well. I would have voted for Aria but I knew it would have more the OMG and X.

Lucky Star is winning now? Aw, nuts. Mushishi would be cool, and it was winning when I voted, but Lucky Star is a really polarizing show. I don't even find the art that appealing.

I was just wondering if there was any way to enable a function that would allow us to upload our own personal skins just like with how we can upload our own avatars? I'm a computer noob, as I've mentioned countless times, so I'm not sure if this is even feasible or not. Just kind of tossing the idea out though.
