I don't really know what to put here so I'll just add whatever.

So I been watching anime since I was young; however, around 2006 or 2005 , I have a crap memory, I started getting more into anime. I recently took a break from anime but now I'm starting back.

I'm a really laid back person and like to chill I'm always up for watching some new anime that I haven't seen or heard of before, main reason I'm here. I really wasn't going to participate much when I first decided to join the site but for some reason I couldn't help myself.

Oh yeah and as you can see some of my personal information maybe vague but that's mainly because I'm paranoid.

I like all types of anime, pretty much open to all genres but I do prefer the slower more relaxing ones or something that makes me think. The more unique the better!

Since you can't tell what my top 5 are from looking at profiles yet I decided to list them here temporarily, might actually end up making a top 10 list.

Kino's Journey

Bartender

Comedy

Pale Cocoon

Diary of Tortov Roddle

I don't know what else to put so I guess I might put some more info later.

I see. Well, I had never heard of it until I saw the DVD and I was like.. Hmmm.. my dad said I could buy three but I had only two I had picked out so I was like, what the heck. So I bought it and I thought it was adorable. The names are pretty cool even though they are named after ingredients and such. I am weird. Maybe I will put Kino no Tabi in Trouble Chocolate's place... Hmmm..

My top five are: Cardcaptors, Fullmetal Alchemist, Ouran High School Host Club, Princess Mononoke, Trouble Chocolate. Though I am thinking of changing Trouble Chocolate to something else, but I can't decide what to put in it's place. >.<

It is really nice. So far I was like, "Am I the only one who thinks these shows were awesome?" ^_^

My top 30 list pic is from Shigofumi; good series to check out for a Kino fan ^_^ The art itself is fanart from this "archlich" fellow. ("licheus" on deviantart apparently) It's a pretty distinct style; he's really good.

I want to add to my last comment that the dialogue in Legend of the Galactic Heroes is really fantastic and engaging. The character's scripts are rather meaty--lots of things to say, but they mention very interesting things.  Even though the anime is fictional, they seem to speak very realistically.  Like if I were in that situation, I'd think the same thought or say the same thing.  The characters just seem closer to human than I've seen others. And when the characters make jokes, they're actually funny; I enjoy the humor when there is some. Just seems like a special kind of humor.

I don't really see strong dialogue like this in recent anime, but if I recall correctly, Legend was a novel series before it was an anime. 

OK i'll shutup about that now. ^_^! I need to study for quiz.

Uh oh I feel a rant coming on. XD I wonder if this will all fit on the same comment.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes is well worth the watch!  That was the last anime I've seen that I purely enjoyed.  After that, the other anime I've been watching (like Code Geass) have felt more and more average and less exciting.  Maybe I should have watched Legend later to save the best for last. xD

I am the same; I don't tend to watch long series.  I usually stick to 26-episode series.  Why did I watch Legend?  I just have a natural love for scifi with a heavy, engaging plot.  I like space battles and the political/social differences between two opposing colonies.  In this case, the Galactic Empire and the Alliance.  But the anime also had to present some interesting characters, and I have to say, the two mains Reinhard and Yang are brilliant.  Reinhard reminds me of Yagami Light in some ways, and Yang reminds me of L because of awkward habits.  But they've got more matureness about them, and I wouldn't compare Legend to Death Note too much.  I don't know what to compare this masterpiece to.

But I'd be lying if I said Legend didn't drag sometimes.  There is a strong emphasis on character and plot development in this anime, as I've implied.  It's highly intelligent, political, and downright fascinating, but takes patience to get into!  The beginning of the anime takes a while to sink in.  First of all, you're immediately introduced to a ton of characters that it might seem a bit overwhelming.  And next is the old animation that tends to bug people, but honestly, the characters REALLY look their parts!

I'd say at least watch this up to episode 20, and if you're quite interested by then and got the feel of the anime, you must continue this epic space opera.  It takes some dedication to finish of course.  I got someone else into it and he seems to be enjoying it quite much.

Tytania is coming out soon, which is directed by the same director of Legend.  I don't think it could surpass Legend of the Galactic Heroes, but I'm excited for it nonetheless!!
