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 just read your Hellsing/Afro Samurai Recommendation. It is very likely the most intelligent sounding thing I've ever read on this site.

No problem! People on the forums can complain about pretty everything. Personally, I think your approach to the question is brilliantly done considering you've allowed for multiple choices and are separating the movies/ova/series, also the fact the pretty much only pulled series that the forum members where talking about.

I love the "accidental harem" aspects of SZS, I think that's one of the best parts of the show.

I think it's great your posting and contributing to the forum. It's a shame you don't have people locally you can share your interest in. I know how it feels, I've been moving around the U.S. alot lately and I don't really know anyone well enough to invite them over to watch anime. :(

That's nice to hear, too!

 BTW: Love the animation poll (although my post already says as much).

I love the humor and design of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. Also I think it's great that Nozomu always freaks out when a suicide attempt almost succeeds. Doesn't look like he's quite ready to be shuffled off the mortal coil.

Np.In fact I just felt myself compelled to stop by,and type some praises).Cause u top is the first one I wanted to approve so far :).Not like I actually searched thro..

Corcerning Haruhi I still don't fully understand how did it manage to get into mine.Usually I'm a little bit prejudiced when it comes down to any really popular series..Haruhi's style is no good too.Well,guess this show's merely too amusing and original :).If u don't expect something very deep,I'm pretty sure that u shall enjoy it a lot as well;).
