Ho ho~ what a great site! I've been looking for a site like this. Local anime store clerks fail to make suggestions beyond the mainstream dragonball, naruto, bleach (and occassionally, unusual ones like wolf's rain), so it's great that I can find other fans of the media.
I hope to learn about and watch all sorts of series out there from you all. よろしくお願いします!
My rating system:
5-4.5 - not to be missed
4-3.5 - worth watching/notable series
3-2.5 - has its moments/redeeming features
2-1.5 - uh... there are probably better options out there
1-0.5 - recommend to people to turn them off from anime... for good
