Ok, so I pop in after over a year of no longer using the sight and within 5 minutes I find an anime I want to watch.  So I guess I should pop in more frequently then eh?

Favourite animes - Monster, Texhnolyze, Gungrave, Kino's Journey, Mushishi and FMA.

Other animes that deserve mention (par the obvious): -

Series - Haibane Renmei, Now & Then Here & There, Darker than Black, Basilisk, Higurashi no naku koro ni, Mononoke, Jigoku Shoujo, Red Garden, Claymore, Nodame Cantabile, The Daughter of 20 Faces.

Film - Angel's Egg, Spirited Away, Jin-Roh, Perfect Blue, Vampire Hunter D, Tokyo Godfathers,

OVA - Hellsing, Comedy, Cat Soup, Kakurenbo, Interlude, Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal

About me:

I was born and bought up in the West Country in England and after meeting my husband here on the a-p forum and realising he wasn't a mincing, boy hungry peadophile and/or rapist, married the fella.  I now live in Oregon, which is unfortunately full of hippies and sports fanatics.  When not dodging these unlikely sorts I find myself looking for work and enjoying the longest holiday of my life: waiting for citizenship.  I like the US but miss the UK, most noteably the accent and the food.  I also wish all American's didn't abuse the word "like" in every day conversation, like sod off already.

Weird things about me:

I used to think that eyelashes didnt grow back until consoled by my GCSE science teacher that I was not going bald at the eyes

I still believe that there are four types of grape vines:- seeded black, seeded green, non-seeded black, non-seeded green.

I once dressed up as an orange monk, chanting "I am an orange, I am an orange. Do you laugh? If you don't see anything to laugh at, pretend you see it, then laugh" for several hours.

I have a genuine fear of midgets.

Things I like (par anime): Music (massively), mainly jazz and experimental rock, some singer/songwriter and elcectronica, reading, playing computer games, 19th century French & Russian art, Japanese culture and history, foreign films, stand-up comedians and learning.

Things I don't Like:

The Olsen Twins, hairy women ( I have a fear of them too, but it's not genuine), girls who aim a camera at anything, develop it in black and white and claim themselves a photographer - yeah, ofcourse you are, football hooligans, people who fire me and ants.

I am often rather amused. ;)

And I strive to be at least somewhat amusing -- especially when involved in Gilbert & Sullivan.

Your avatar, on the other hand, is simply cool!

yeah...i actually fiinished watching it a few days ago...i was letting some time pass to comment about it so you wouldn't know it only took me two days to watch. but now that i've confessed let me tell you that it was awesome. i usually hate romeo and juliet endings, but there really wasn't any other way it could have ended. i've already added it to my top 25.

i'm glad your liking d.gray-man. i've only watched maybe two episodes of full metal alchemist so i can't agree or disagree. it wasn't the an anime i wanted to commit to right then, but i may pick it up again in the future.

i didn't waste any time checking out the first couple episodes of basilisk, it does remind me of ninja scroll- can't wait to add it to my watched list. thanks ^_^

i have watched alot compared to some who have been watching alot longer, but i am a stay home mom. so i guess compared to the more usefull employed or school studying people i have nothing but time. i as for the lack of sleep...again, i have kids.

d.gray-man...you could probably faster read it's description than i could explain it, but as to why i like it, i think it's allen's compassionate and corky nature that drew me in. i tend to be drawn to shows where heroic characters step up to defend the helpless. or anything with romance works too (one that ends well, not one that gets your hopes up then leaves you pulling your hair out and thinking wtf at the end).
