Woah! xD Haha, You really reminded me of how quickly time passes! :p Yeah, I remember talking with you, and even if I didn't it's easy enough to scroll down a little bit and see my ridiculously long comments :p (I usually use irc to have longer, more interactive discussions, these days). I still pretty much think the same of High School of the Dead; it's a solid comedy horror/zombie flick that I think some people are just too sensitive about, because of the ecchi. "Over the top" should be one of its tags, and proudly. ;) 

As to City Hunter...hmmm. :)

Well. I really enjoyed it for the first...hmmm...30 episodes or so. After that, I became very frustrated with the repetitive nature of the show. In general, I've found as I"ve watched more anime these last two years, that the shows I enjoy most are those that get me thinking, provide some sort of an intellectual challenge, or an "ah ha!" moment, or gets me into a contemplative mood. While I do love the characters of City Hunter, the laughs alone weren't doing it for me; the main "story" or relationship, whichever you'd like to consider it, was progressing ridiculously slowly, and the standalone episodes became somewhat predictable, because you could usually count on saeba being badass and winning the day. By far, my favorite episodes were the ones that showed character development, but it honestly became a struggle for me to finish the show. I took watching it pretty slowly, and usually only watched some of it after I'd finished a heavy show, and just wanted something to really relax with. Season 4 ('91) I thought was particularly strong, especially with the "cinderella" episode, and the episode after that about saeko.

In the end, I'm glad that I got through the 4 seasons, because it enabled me to watch Angel Heart. Angel Heart was a much more enjoyable show for me, one of the best I've seen recently, in fact. I think it took the best of City Hunter and focused it, while finally giving us the answers to some things we've always wanted to know.  I loved the more plot and character oriented aspect of Angel Heart. I thought that they seamlessly developed the characters, allowing for serious moments as necessary, while adding in humor AS APPROPRIATE. One thing that I didn't like about City Hunter was that, too many times, it broke up some serious moments with really awkward humor that I thought just ruined the atmosphere . I think they attained a much better balance in Angel Heart. And even the "standalone" episodes were very enjoyable. Whereas a lot of City Hunter standalone episodes came across as cliched "save the mistress" sorts of scenarios,  they did a good job of making some truly sincere and heartwarming episodes that had some thought put into them.
