    I'm a big fan of Love Hina and Cowboy Bebop, and I've seen the first DVD of Dot Hack, which is interesting.

    My favorite of all time though is Macross Plus.

    Those Who Hunt Elves is a lot of fun, too. :D

    I'm pretty selective or I guess I just don't watch much anime anymore.

    Used to watch Kenshin about 4-5 years ago (before it became US mainstream a la Cartoon Network). GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka) is also pretty nice.

    Now I watch Naruto...where the heck is ep 73?!!! I'm gettin impatient haha.

    Well I've been kind of wandering watching older Anime stuff since Cowboy Bebop is no longer making anything new. I came across a series on MTV2 the other night called Heatguy J. I really like it and think its on par with Cowboy Bebop on many levels.

    Gundam Wing was good...Trigun's good. I liked Vampire Hunter D. I haven't watched that much stuff, but I liked a lot of what I've watched. Some of it is total crap though.

    I personally love Cowboy Bebop, but most other anime I've seen I don't like. Except hentai. Can never get too much hentai.

    Hmmmm...

    Currently active stuff I am collecting (all sub btw. I HATE dub):

    Mezzo DSA (damn good!)
    Inu Yasha (good show, but its dragging lately)
    Read or Die TV
    Ghost in the Shell TV (Kusanagi Rulez! ;-))
    Juuni Kokki (I do hope they make more of that show)
    Onegai Twins! (still waiting for that OAV)
    Chrno Crusade (While I like the show, I think that Studio Gonzo chose a horrible voice actress for Rosette, I would have liked the girl that did Chidori Kaname's voice in Full Metal Panic (another great Studio Gonzo show) much better)

    My biggest disappointment lately was the new Tenchi Muyo! OVA 3 Series. Now I thought after the yucky Tenchi Tokyo we were through the worst, especially now that finally the people that wrote the original OAV are back on the team again but no... Now they even **** up the OAV. Very disappointing considering that Tenchi was what got me into Anime in the first place.
    Cheers,

    classics

    I can't believe that nobody mentioned Akira or Ninja Scroll. Truly anime classics.

    Well I like those, but...

    Those are, as you said classics. Same as Bebop or Evangelion. I only mentioned the stuff that I am currently collecting (which are shows that are currently running on Japanese TV and are being fansubbed). That doesn't mean that I don't have those two and a lot of other stuff in my collection that is older.
    Cheers,

    Ahmed

    Well it is Anime...

    ... although the "storyline" *cough* *cough* sucks and the drawing quality/artwork is sub-par to be friendly. So it does count. Given the content they could have cut the show down to like 40 episodes without missing any of the storyline......
    Cheers,

    DBZ is japanese..... unfortunately, a good example that even japanese can produce low quality animation, not just Saban.
    With Kenshin you will be disappointed, there is not much fighting going on in there, if you compare the TV series to the OAV.
    Cheers,

    I have to say I liked DBZ (Although I thought DB GT was a bit crap). But then the only Anime I have watched is DBZ, Gundam Wing and Pokemon (if you can call it Anime). The UK does not get much Anime compared to countries like the US.

    www.animesuki.com

    There you can get fansubs of current anime that is not licenced. So its perfectly legal.

    I like Starblazers. Hopefully, I will get another movie for my birthday next week. I also used to watch another older anime (Battletech??) but haven't seen it in years. Oh, and Speed Racer (the original, not the new junk).

    I think perfect Blue is one amazing film. Different from most anime, but pretty awesome. Battle angel alita is one of my faves. Oh, Ranma is good for a laugh too!

    have you ever read the manga for alita? i know it's cliché, but it really is tons better than the anime. the anime is decent, but can't hold a candle to the original. plus there's so much more story that happens after what's covered in the anime.
