I felt like updating my list. Fear it, or it might eat you. Now in an all new shiny box!

Favorites:
Heat Guy J
Chrono Crusade (Only series I've bought manga of so far.)
Full Metal Panic
Cowboy Bebop

Stuff I like:
FLCL
Samurai Deeper Kyo
RahXephon
Crest/Banner of the Stars (Not that I'd watch them again, but they were decent for a once over)
Berserk
Black Jack
Geneshaft
King of Bandit Jing
Vandread (Corny and funny. Why not.)
Wolf's Rain (I like wolves. Nuff said)
Kiddy Grade (Love how it got more interesting every disc.)
Fruits Basket (HYPER! woot)
Samurai Champloo (Heh. Bizarre.)
Yu Yu Hakusho (Will see it unedited sooner or later.)
Fullmetal Alchemist (Nice pacing. Well done.)
Spiral (This show is cooler than it should be. I'm usually not much for detective stuff.)
Slayers (Mmmmmmhmm. Corny. But fun.)

Sort of liked:
Dirty Pair (+flash) (Saw some on cinemax. No plans to rent)
ROD movie (AS) (Dont care for the tv show)
Scryed (Interesting, but too cheesy.)
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (has some annoying parts, not my favorite show, but a decent one at any rate.)

Stuff I don't care one way or the other about:
Witch Hunter Robin (AS)
Jin-Roh
Inuyasha (too...loooooong...) (AS)
Case Closed (AS)
Lupin (AS)
Kikaider (AS)
Armitage 3: poly-matrix (cinemax)
Alien 9 (Too short)
Gundams
Lain (OK, it wasn't bad, but I still don't care)
Divergence Eve (I'm still watching it, but it's not that exciting.)

Stuff I didn't like:
Super milk-chan (AS) (was that supposed to be a show or a sedative?)
Trigun (AS)
Blue Gender (AS)
Evangelion (Characters that make me want to beat them over the head with a spiked stick. Fun.)
Azumanga Daioh (yes, I know you all loved it.)
Reign (AS)
Animatrix (I liked all the movies...but what the hell was that? I loved Matrix Online too.)
Aeon Flux (MTV2. Big barrel of suck.)
Hellsing (Aside from Blade, I'm just not into vampire stuff.)
The Big O (AS)
Gungrave (Crime stories can usually kiss my...)
Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi (Sure, I like jokes being done to death. Somewhere were I don't have to hear or see them.)
Dragon Ball (all of it)
Ghost in the Shell (1 or 2.)
Noir (Impossibly long drawn out melodrama. Woo.)
Paranoia Agent (How many ways are there to bore an audience...)

Dude, Aeon Flux was on the regular MTV like...five or six years ago, lol! I used to catch it. I liked it back then...but the animation style freaked me out for some reason (the episode plots didn't help). And if ya didn't catch it on another thread, Aeon Flux the Movie is coming out this year (Reign is by the same creater, I believe--not as good as Aeon Flux). I do believe this was during the time when MTV occasionally had a bit of its old style and originality. A really small bit. *snort* That is long since gone...

And why am I the ONLY one who ever lists Bastard!! as a favorite? That anime rocks! (Of course, it appeals to my ever-so-slightly twisted sense of humor. And my love for villains. *sigh*)

Maybe if I'd seen it earlier I might have liked it. I'm undecided on that. Reign, though, is just crap.

I don't know, I kinda liked that one, but it was pretty forgettable.

Indeed.

*gasps and has an anime-fanatic moment* How dare you! *giggle*

I think it was partially forgetable for the open ending. *sigh* I love Bastard!! I have up to volume 7 of the mangas. :P

*sigh* I guess it may be because it was the first anime I really liked, had a guy losing his clothes a lot (and after seeing chicks losing their clothes all the time...), and combined action with humor. And again, I'm a big fan of villains and anti-heroes.

I'm a big fan of the voice actor that does Spike (Cowboy Bebop of course) and Mugen (Samurai Champloo)...

He's the best anti-hero ever IMO. (And yes, I know his name already.)

Is it a game where we make each other feel guilty?

If so, I better not, I play it a lot with relatives and friends. And I'm horrible at it. :(

Just messin' with you dude. Guild Wars is a PC game, neh? I saw the marketing boxes (or at least the empty ones) when I was at EBX or was it Gamestop? Anyway, I'm not much for PC games, I have an XBoX and a PS2, but I don't play as much as I used to. :(

Consoles are certainly easier to deal with wrt expenses. I guess I just grew up gaming on PCs. I get free rent currently too, so I can afford it.

(That, also, explains why I can't afford any consoles....stupid PC :p )

I just never felt like gaming on a TV either....they're big and ugly. HDTV I might do now that mom got one.

If I ever get my drivers license (which should be sometime in the next few months...I'm 26, heh) I'll probably have better job prospects. (Was a weekend night auditor at some hotels for around 7.5 months, just quit. Wanted my weekends back and some semblance of a sleep schedule.)

I'm not surprised at this....good game bad PR. They should not have done the public beta so early, and they should not have let the final release out so buggy. :p

It was a lot of fun, and I might consider that Station Access thingy sometime.

Heat Guy J box set for $135! Sweet. I ordered it.

(Yes, it's legal, of course. It's also on Amazon for $150.)

Releases on the 19th and Overstock doesn't keep inventory stocked...they get what they get :)
