Yeah... My list can keep going, too, and I jump around a lot, depending on my mood. XP

I need to add Baccano! and Steins;Gate to the top of my anime list now. I really love those two shows. Easily in my top 3. :3

^ Yeah, the Claymore manga is really good if you like dark fantasy action series'. :3 I would definitely recommend it. I don't blame you for wanting a book in your hands to read it. With Claymore, I don't read the chapters as they're released online, but I wait for the volumes to be released here(which is twice a year. ^^;; )

Oh, I see Steins; Gate here? *o*
Nice one, Kicchu! A great anime that certainly deserves to be on the top! :3
And Aoi Hana and Girl Friends... Just lovable, I like the both as well. Shiho Huit

Edit:
An update to my list: Tiger & Bunny; Fresh Pretty Cure; Fate Stay Night; Angel Beats!; Toaru Kagaku no Railgun; Monster; Girl Friends; Aoi Hana (anime & manga). <- A bunch of them, I know. Some I watched months ago, but I'm updating just now.

^Yay! Someone else that likes Steins;Gate! This makes me really happy! ;O; I've tried suggesting it to some people I know, but it seems no one is interested(except maybe one person who's too busy to watch it now... gotta make her watch it later on. >D )
Yeah, they're both really cute, too! :D I'm also really glad that they're bringing Girl Friends over to the states for me to put on my shelf(and to help spread their lovable-ness to others. ;P )

----------

Hmm, looking around my room and at my list, there's been quite a few series' I've watched and really enjoyed since I posted on here. Some of which include:
Simoun
Solty Rei
Angel Beats! (Which I even got my nephew into. LOL )
Hunter x Hunter remake
Chihayafuru
The World God Only Knows

Manga wise, I've started collecting Arisa and I really like it. But I've only read 3 volumes and people are saying it starts to go down hill around there. ;___; Guess I'll see. Ahahaha...
I've also started reading The World God Only Knows manga. :3

LOL So it's about the same for you? I've thought about having my nephew watch it(also by force), but he's not good at reading subs and can't sit still very long with few exceptions. ^^; Though I did pique his interest by showing a few scenes. LOL And for a couple days we both were going around saying, "TUTURUUU~" XD

Aww, we really need more Steins;Gate fans. ;__; Time to start mass forcing people to watch it. XDD
Tuturuuuu~! Hehehe, it's strangely addicting! XD
Me, too! :D Though I've also been trying to rewatch it all again before CrunchyRoll takes it down and I have to wait for who knows how long for the DVDs. TT^TT
Also, what are your thoughts of a movie being green-lit already? I kind of have mixed feelings. I think the ending was satisfying enough to not need a direct sequel, but I'm all for a Suzuha timeline story! :D

Yeah! Let's start the world domination using Steins; Gate! xD Totally agreed, comrade! o/
Well, it would be really cool. The anime's end was certainly very good. Maybe some OVAs? ;]
Anyway, those guys need to do something about the Suzuha timeline, or the others "endings" (not much important, but meh). Nao Yuuki

Yeah, it's one of those rare endings that you just get a satisfying feeling from after watching it(and having to go through such a depressing number of episodes! DX )
I'd like some OVAs, too! :D That would be perfect for doing some of the other "endings". :3 Apparently there is going to be at least one more episode released next year with one of the bluray releases. :/ Wonder what it'll be about. I just wish they'd release more information about the movie. All we know is that it's not a rehash of the episodes and that it's something that will appeal to fans of the game and anime. :/ *Curious* If it is a Suzuha movie, I don't think I'll be able to contain my excitement. lol

Do what?
Yeah! It was definitely sad and tear-jerking. I don't know about you, but the second half of the series made me really uncomfortable. xD Though watching the series through again, the first half is feeling uncomfortable to me. I keep shouting, "NO! Don't do that! It'll lead to this, which will make this happen and it'll cause THAT to happen! Idiot! I told you not to! >O "
Out of curiosity, which characters are your favorite if you can pick? :D

Well, I'd say Makise, Okabe, Daru, Mayuri, Amane and Moeka. xD

Yes! You should! It'd make the world a happier place! :D
Then that just shows how great the atmosphere was. XD Ah, I love shows that really incite emotion in me that well. <3
Yay! Someone who likes Moeka! :D I like her, too, even though she's the most hated character in the show by a landslide. XDD I felt sorry for her by the end. ;__; I also like Okabe, Kurisu and Suzuha. At least for the top 3-4. :3

Also, have you seen some of the LE merchandise they're releasing at Comiket? http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2011/12/11-1/limited-edition-steinsgate-goods-produced-for-comiket-81

I really want that lab members pin. ;__;

Her role in anime was incredibly surprising (more like as cool) and, somehow, something deep. I totally understand her side, so I think she is a interesting character.

I want it all! xDD

*spoilers for those not familiar with Steins;Gate*

Spoiler:
You're totally right. Her role really is deep... and very depressing because she could easily be someone in real life. A lonely person on the verge of suicide is saved by someone claiming to give her life a meaning and a place to belong. In a sense, that's very much how cults are formed, and by using charming words they are able to brainwash the unsuspecting people, making them willing to do pretty much anything. ;-;

Hehhe, I want it all, too! xD Though I've really been wanting the pin! XD

Try to put this into spoiler just to avoid any confusion. :3
But yea, this is a fact. I think it's more like "idiot" to hate her.

YES! I'm glad we seem to share similar views on the subject! :D Poor Moeka *hugs her*

Steins;Gate was a very good show...I just haven't got around to finishing it. It's in the top five priority for 2011 shows I need to finish or regularly watch.

Vision of Escaflowne


I watched that recently and I have to say I really loved it eventhough I would like to see Inuyasha-like ending more, now it´s kinda in sad tone. And its very interesting how much they were changing the original concept, I read the mangas and they all are a lot different than the show and characters actually were.

Vision of Escaflowne


I watched that recently and I have to say I really loved it eventhough I would like to see Inuyasha-like ending more, now it´s kinda in sad tone. And its very interesting how much they were changing the original concept, I read the mangas and they all are a lot different than the show and characters actually were.

its hard to hate really. Great music from Yoko Kanno. Some of the most unique mecha designs ever, wonderful characters. But despite it all it went through quite a few changes. It was originally going to be directed by the same man who directed G-Gundam, meaning Van would have been even more hotblooded than ever.
Originally the anime was a hit with young women alot more, so the movie was made darker and more violent to cater to young men. Since I love it so, mission accomplished. Despite all of this, the show didn't do so well in Japan, which explains why its original episode run from 56 was cut down to 26 episodes. The series itself was only a hit over here and in some parts of Korea I believe. The heavily edited version we got on Fox Kids for a time back in the early 00's didn't help matters but it did serve to get me into it that's for sure.

I know where you're coming from with the whole Inuyasha ending thing but I tend to think of Escaflowne as Inuyasha done right

Yea, the concept used to be more like gundam in middle ages. But I like how the series turned out in the end, the mangas based on concept really weren´t that good. It´s not the first anime that had budget problems...but still those 26 episodes were very good.
The movie hit a different note and I like it "differently in a good way" than the series.
