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.

Thanks to Twelve Kingdoms I started to watch anime with english subtitles (because czech subtitles are available only for 25 episodes)..and then I joined anime websites in english:-)

I see,you gave Twelve Kingdoms 4,5 stars..

but Kenshin only 3 stars..I know the serie was a little childish, but I liked it more than both Ovas..I often smiled during the serie, but the first Ova made me cry..and the second Ova made me even depressed..

now I am watching my sister's profiles..

it seems, I have different taste in anime..but there are exceptions (Miayzaki):-)

I am still beginner..but the more I watch anime, the more I know my top five is really the best for me..

Hey there sister Ta-chan!

Just thought I would add you to my friends list, and perpetuate the sisterhood further.

TBH, I can't believe that we have such similar tastes in anime! I'm watching Mushishi at the minute, and it is a complete sensory treat! The visuals are stunning (go, go HD), the audio is perfect and the seiyuu are perfect.

And to have found someone else that has seen Angel's egg ^^

Now that's what I call good taste in anime. I just started watching Darker Than Black based on your recommendation.

sorry it took so long to comment back, i've been extremely busy the last few days (nothing out the ordinary, just pulling puzzle pieces from the garbage disposal and building blocks from the toilet).

anyways, i do think d.gray-man is getting very interesting and allen is looking very suspicious. 

i see your watching vampire princess miyu, what do you think of it? it was the very first anime series i ever watched and i loved it at the time. if i was watching it now for the first time i don't know if i would like it as much.
