I just finished watching Elfen Lied. I loved it so much that I actually went out the next day & bought the entire collection on DVD. It's such an amazing series. I'm about to start on Clannad & Boku No Pico.
I had stopped watching Anime for a couple years, and that was the first one I came back to. I just fell in love with it. I even let out a super manly cry on the last couple episodes because I really connected with the characters. I felt so bad for Mayu & even for Lucy because she couldn't help what happened to her.
I personally loved the ending because it symbolized the ending of Lucy & the beginning of Nyu.
A few picks of my favourites, in no particular order:
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica
Haruhi (especially Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu movie)
Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai
Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai
Higurashi no naku koro ni
Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
To Aru Kagaku no Railgun
Serial Experiments Lain
I am watching a lot of anime and I'm actually starting an anime community forum right now with a group of people. I'm developing an anime review system built on top of XenForo, so hopefully it works well. If anyone is interested in testing the site when we're ready you can PC (PM) me. Don't want to advertise with a link here.
I used to watch a lot. I have about a terrabyte of downloaded shows. I only keep up with a few now, and read a few manga's. I actually admin a manga forum, well...co-admin anyways. I provide free hosting to them. They're trying to become the next big manga viewer site; they just need to get a manga viewer up rofl http://mangaknight.com/forums/
Same here. I used to be so into anime, that I thought Escasflowne, and Ronin were greatly designed. Whoever hand drew those works - I hope he/she/the team was paid well. I was also into Dragon Ball Z, until right after the resurrected Buu saga.
Which reminds me - I hate the new idea for the next Dragon Ball movie, mostly because Buu and the resurrection of buu is that case of "from one ear to another it goes." Now, the Cell saga is a season I would not hestitate or even mind to pay $5/$10 at my local theater. Cell was deadly, vile, and downright evil. And the voice for 'Perfect' Cell - perfect choice. Perfect.
