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 knew you'd cave sooner or later, but i guess sooner won! unfortunately i have no idea how many eps there are (i'm on # 67), i just helplessly wait around for the new ones to come out.

i really did enjoy full metal alchemist, so much that sometimes when i'm watching other series i wonder why the retards don't just alchemy to fix their problems. just seems like the obvious solution to me, but what do i know.

i'm still interested in watching kino's journey, but so far i can't find it, so i'll have to wait it out.

thanks for checking in on me:)

Haha.  Screw the equality in the workplace in this scenario...if there's a cute chick running around in full plate and a badass sword, I want to see her plow in some face, not sit around twidling her thumbs for half the damn series.  ><

You've done yourself a favor...Fate/Stay Night is exactly like this:

Shirou: "You mean I must fight in a seven man deathmatch?  Bullshi--I mean crikey!  I shall prevail with the power of friendship!"

*Shirou defeats foes through kindness, love, and affection.  If said defeated foe is female, then she comes to live with him and joins the harem.*

And the cycle repeats for 24 episodes.  Oh, and Shirou happens to summon the most powerful swordsman in the world's history (supposedly), but refuses to let her fight because "women should not fight."  Or something.  I tried not to pay attention since he rotted away half my intellect just by watching.  I'm recovering very slowly, but I think there has been permanent damage.

No, it's really not.  The entire final arc is a total and utter waste of time, and being that it's a good 10 episodes...yeah...

Higurashi Kai is easily one of the worst sequels I have ever seen, anime or otherwise.  It begins well enough, and even the third arc (despite its number of cliche elements) is passable.  The first season was an amazing ride of chaotic violence melded with a hazy but intriguing story; the second is some retarded crap fit for the Fate/Stay Night crowd.  I sincerely wish I had left off Kai after the 3rd answer arc simply to keep my favorable impression of the series in tact.  ><
