I'm from London, England and have lived here all my life. When I'm not busy working I guess I spend most of my free time hanging out with friends, playing video games and of course watching anime! I started watching Anime around 18 years ago. I remember a friend showing me Fist of the North Star and I was hooked instantly.

I've been meaning to update my brief profile ever since I joined AP... but for now I will just add my Playstation 3 ID: Icey7  So if you also have a PS3 feel free to add me.

So I just finished Tokimeki Meorial. It was a good romance, although predictable, I enjoyed it a lot. The one thing I did not like was the ending. I mean, he never kisses her, never tells her he loves her, and he moves away, and you never know what happens after that, besides them calling each other. It wasn't a bad ending, just wasn't very good either, I mean, it could have been a hell of a lot worse, he could've not picked any girl at all. O well, still a great series, so ty for the rec. 

As for Gundam 00 songs, I had no trouble finidng them, jsut had trouble downloading them, but its all good now. As for FMA, definitely check it out. I may have rated it a bit too high, but it is still an awesome show. Just don't expect a lot of romance, but you can expect an epic series. Also, if you do pick it up, watch the movie after the series, it is the conclusion. 

As for your stalled series, tell me if Noir is any good if you do pick it up. My friend wants to pick it up, and asked me how it was, but I haven't seen it or really heard people talking about it, although I do plan on watching it.

 A good show though you should check out is Aishiteruze Baby. It was a very good "fuzzy feeling" series. There was a a lot of "true romance" in it, which made me like it a whole lot more. I actually wish they would make a second season, it was really good. The only thing that got a bit annoying was the child, but, kids are annoying, so it was all good.

Another good series would be Blue Gender (although I may have already rec this to you, can't remember). It is a post-apocolyptic show, with a lot of action, romance, and a good bit of drama. The begining is mostly action, suspense, drama, and a bit of romance, but towards the end there is a good bit of action, a lot of drama, romance, suspense, and some mindfuck is mixed in there. Overall this is one of my favorite series, and should definitely be

I was looking for the song too, but awhile ago, so it wasn't there for me to get. Thanks for the news though, I will pick it up. Also, thanks for telling me Spice and Wolf 4 came out. I looked over it on Baka-update, downloading it now, along with the second version of bleach 158.

Tell me how ef is too. Just about everyone who has watched it praised it, was waiting for someone with the same prefernces to watch it and tell me how it is. Also, enjoy Code Geass.

*edit*  Also, do you know when the op to Spice and Wolf will be out, was looking for it and was unable to find it.

Wow I completly forgot about TAMNM. Everytime I watch a new episode I can't wipe the stupid grin off my face. I saw the first couple of episodes of Hatekno Yugi and thought the same as you, I just don't feel it. As for Spice and Wolf, I did a wikipedia of it so I could find out the op song, and it is going to be 13 episodes plus and OVA. It will be a fantasy, but will focus less on swords and magic, and more on trade, and dialogue, which isn't a problem. Also, his apprentice is a anime only character so there may be a love triangle, if there wioll be romance. Like you said, you can start to see it develop but it is way to early to see what it will be like.

As for Black Lagoon, towards the end(last arc) you see more of a relationship establish, and you get the feeling that Rock and Revy like each other, just gotta sit through all the engrish. The show always put romance aside for action. If there will be another sequal then I can really see it being a romance/action.

Give Gundam 00 a little bit of time,once you get deeper it starts to eperate itself from SEED. You should really give Code Geass a try. It is pure awesome, and thinking about  the first season, I rated it too low on my top 20. The second season will come out after episode 25 of Gundam 00.

About Samurai7, I really enjoyed the beggining, but towards the middle it started to get boring and played out, but it did finish strong. It is one of those series that you think you can predict, but it ends up doing something else, for the better. It is hard for me to recommend this one. If you want to watch an action, then a definite yes, but if you are looking for a lot of romance then no. Every now and then they throw romance into the mix, especially towards the end. Overall it is probably 70% action, 20% romance and 10% comedy/other. However if you want to watch this for the romance then don't pick it up.

Well, I still have not finished Tokimeki. Over the weekend my modem died, so I just got a new one. Since I had no internet I was watching shows I already had downloaded, so I finished Sumurai7, which I think fiinshed strong. I thought I had predicted the ending, but I only got about 30% correct, was very good, and added a nice twist to the samurai anime. I am on episode 20 of Tokimeki so I should have it fiinshed once I am done watching all the new shows this week.

 Soeaking of new show though, three series have really stood out. Rosario+vampire, True Tears, and Spice and Wolf. Now, I did say that all True Tears was, was a bunch of kids crying and complaing, but after watching this weeks new episode, I feel this will be a very good romance, and I have high hopes for this one.

Spice and Wolf has also become a favorite of mine, I just love the relationship between the characters, love the setting, and love the sound. For anime, sound is a huge thing for me, if it has a great ost, then it makes the experience mnore enjoyable. Also the op for Spice and Wolf is made it to my #1 spot.

And good old Rosario + Vampire. Even though right now it jut you monster of the day type deal, I am really enjoying it, and eagrly await new episodes (especially next weeks!). 

Last but not least Gundam 00. Every week this series continues to amaze me, with the exception of this week (recaps suck). Well thats what has been going on with me, what are your impressions on the some of the series you picked up?

Agreed about Shuffle! but it would also be boring as hell if there were no conflicts in the story. As for the new shows, I LOVE GUNDAM 00. I was always a huge fan of Gundam, but this series is just so bad ass. The inner ecchi in me is also really enjoying Rosario to Vampire. True Tears is ok, it is just starting to turn into a giant whine fest, all they do is complain, and everything is over dramatized, I will still watch it, but I am expecting this one to be a serious drama, which I don't mind, I just hate when they do the whole over dramatization of school type thing. 

Lets see, H20 is ok, I just don't really like to see romance/harem when the characters aren't at least in high school, I mean, I am not really big in the whole loli type deal. After watching episode two of They are my noble master, I am probably going to be hooked on that series. I was cracking up all through out, but I was also a little wierded out by the relationship between all the siblings... there all very... feely. 

Well thats what I think of the new series that come to mind, starting tommorow, I should have all the new episodes that came out this week so far watched, so I should pick up Tokimeki. It's tough having so many anime I am watching at times, expcially since they all are really great, I can't really priortize one. O well, guess I am blessed if thats the only thing I am worried about, to many good anime shows to watch...
