One thing that happens often with me is that I want to watch things over again. The most recent series for me was Angelic Layer. I really enjoyed it when it was coming out and it just works so well for me on a number of levels.

So what are people's favorite shows to rewatch a few times. What things would they like to rewatch, but don't feel they've waited long enough? (like Saikano for me)

I don't go too far out of my way to re-watch shows, but I usually watch whatever episode of Cowboy Bebop that happens to be on Adult Swim. For me, that's probably the most re-watchable show there is.
I want to see Azumanga Daioh and Kimagure Orange Road again soon.... generally I buy what I re-watch, and I'm not gonna make an exception with these two great shows. So it's not that I haven't waited enough (it's been almost a year since I started KOR.... I think) but that I'm too broke to get them.

I recently re-watched Berserk. The first time I finished it (spoilers ahead) I thought Griffith had been manipulated by the God Hand into becoming Femto.... but after the second time, I'm saying, "No, they did manipulate him some, but he went along with it on his own. He wanted all that to happen. That bastard! That evil bastard!" It was quite an experience re-watching the first part of that, knowing what was going to happen... seeing young Griffith again, with his unique helmet......

I re-watch and re-read shoujo like a mofo. Just about all the good ones.

I just re-watched Furuba but this time in Japanese. And I must say, it's equally as funny 'specially the pervy older dog-zodiac cousin. I did like Torhru more in Japanese and the Yankee and Vibe girl more in Japanese though. I found Yuki's older brother's parts very very fast and had to pause and rewind a lot. One big problem w/ the Japanese version was that Yuki's very high girl voice made my hair stand on end but as w/ Kenshin, the more I watched it, the more it became natural. Eventually, it sounded fine. (Which Hamano said would happen)

One big reason I watched it again was because H-sensei said the end was more touching in Japanese. While I did feel the URGE to cry at the end,there were no actual tears. But I did not get that sad during the English version at all. But still, no actual tears folks, I have no heart. Blame it on Berserk. But it was more touching...so Hamano wins another one. Damn you sensei! Damn you...

I can't even say how many times I've seen Heat Guy J all the way through....4? 5? 7? I really don't remember. But it's definately the one I've seen the most of. I might as well buy it someday when I have a better job.

hamano's most rewatched:

Princess Mononoke
My Neighbor Totoro
Kiki's Delivery Service
Grave of the Fireflies
Jin Roh
Ah My Goddess Movie
Battle Athletes Victory
Fruits Basket
Original Bubblegum Crisis Ep. 8 Scoop Chase
Revolutionary Girl Utena Ep. 7 Unfulfilled Jury
Cardcaptor Sakura - the episode with the Silent Card
Samurai X Trust&Betrayal OAV
Sailor Moon R Movie: The Promise of the Rose
Mezzo Forte (Hey, I'm a guy, OK?)

That's it, off the top of my head.
All of these score very high on story, music and voice acting for me. I'd probably rewatch SuperGals over and over when I own it someday... Oh, I should rewatch Junkers, Come Here again soon...

I'm on my third time around on Boogiepop Phantom. I just finished Haibane Renmei several weeks ago and already I feel like watching it again so I guess that means I should buy it.

I've watched Mononoke, Totoro, Nausicaa and Only Yesterday several times each. Although it was beautiful, I could only watch Grave of the Fireflies once, because it was such a downer. Oddly enough, once in the theater was enough for Spirited Away as well.

I've watched Boogiepop Phantom and Lain all the way through several times each, simply because I was catching on to something new in each one each time I started again. I watched Paranoia Agent twice before lending my fansub copies to my brother, and I'll probably rent the US DVD releases before I get my fansubs back.

Same goes for Samurai Champloo. I have saved copies of all the fansubs, which is rare for me because I usually delete them after I watch them. But I'll likely rent the DVDs to see it all again once they're all released. I did the same thing with Last Exile. I watched the English version of FLCL on Adult Swim and ended up renting them again to watch them in Japanese (which made more sense to me for some reason). I also watched Excel Saga repeatedly when I rented it (keeping it out for a while) and will likely buy it at some point as a good laugh in reserve.

I bought Samurai X for the specific intent of watching it repeatedly. And I have. And it's just as good every damned time.

Also, BGC. I own the original Bubblegum Crisis, Bubblegum Crash and BGC Tokyo 2040 and have watched each one repeatedly. I rented Parasite Dolls and watched it several times before returning it. I'll probably watch 2041 repeatedly when it comes out. The BGC franchise is one of the coolest.

These days I'm repeating less, simply because I'm downloading so much new stuff and renting so many new US releases that I have no time for repeats.

Lets see:

Fruits Basket
RahXephon
Evangelion
Berserk
Samurai X OVA (Trust and Betrayal)

I've seen all of those several times in both languages.

Samurai Champloo is the only anime that I've seen that I watched repeatedly before the whole thing was even released on fansub. The first half is better than the second half, unfortunately, but the end was satisfying, if not spectacular.

One added thing I've found with some shows, how much I catch the second and third time around that I missed in earlier viewings. I'm finding it bigtime with Fullmetal Alchemist on Toon Network right now. There are so many things that they just shove in front of your face very early on that I just compeltely missed. Things that end up being important to the story towards the end.

it's really nice to see storytelling that is that well planned out.

When u see something again, it isn't a big a blow as the first time. Get what I'm saying?

Hmm. I do. But the first viewing did nothing. Nothing. Second time around I knew what to expect yet I was touched more than the first. That was my case.

I wonder, has there ever been an anime where the characters look part frog? Part fox, part raccoon, sure, but part frog? :)
