It's not that I don't want to watch it, it's just that I'm hesitant to do so because I guess I'm afraid that I'll end up not liking it, or being bored out of my mind by it.  I've heard so much good stuff about it, but from descriptions of the show (both here on A-P and on places like ANN and AniDB) it just sounds dead boring.  No one I've ever encountered has actually talked about what the show's good qualities are or what it's even about, they just say that it's amazing.  I'll probably end up watching it sooner or later, but all this hype about it has got me a little suspicious, that's all.

xxxHolic has nothing to do with anything in its name, which is weird; its kindof a morally ambiguous show.  Its kindof weird, because it's superficially deep; there are interesting questions posed, but it's not overly philosophical.  I really enjoyed it. 

The Kenshin OVAs are a must though; the series is seriously lacking, but  Trust and Betrayal was amazing.  I checked my pm's and nothing yet, but I'll check again later.

I've heard a lot of great stuff about Mushishi, but for some reason, am very reluctant to watch it.  Not a clue as to why.  As for the other's I'll add them to my list; its getting rather long and I'm a few titles behind, but I'll catch up eventually.

Recommendations....well, it really depends on what sort of show you're looking for.  As far as basic necessities go, I'd say watch Genshiken (the whole franchise, not just the first season),  and Cowboy Bebop is an absolute MUST

Oh oh oh.....you absolutely HAVE to watch Rurouni Kenshin; I'm starting the series, but you need to see the prequel OVAs "Trust" and "Betrayal."  It's in my top 5 now, and its quite possible the best thing I've seen in recent months.  Too bad you can't get it on box though; I had to get mine on demonoid, and the quality of the rip is pretty bad.

You should also watch xxxHolic, and the Higurashi franchise (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai) 

But yes, I do tend to watch more comedies than anything else...I happen to like a good laugh .  If there's anything else I can recommend, give me some specific criteria and I'll see what I can do.  Anything along more serious lines you might recommend?

Yeah, I got a rec from you on box, so i figured i'd follow the link to a-p; your favorites seem to be a bit heavier/deeper than mine, but no less entertaining by any means.

And yeah, the rating can be a pain; I started once, but the browser froze midway through, so I just left it for another day   <.<  

...I'll probably do it soon, since someone has now reminded me. (thanks, by the way)
