    You have to watch all of Cowboy Bebop, I thought the first 2 DVDs were a bit meh, but the final 4 were epic, a truly great work. Haruhi also tops, really enjoyed it, Midori No Hibi (Midori Days) is pretty decent, but too short and just ends, Haruhi is quite similar in that regard, just not enough eps to fit in the whole story. NGE is a classic, but I don't rate it that highly if truth be told. Chobits as discussed. The others I haven't seen, so can't comment.

    Recommend Cowboy Bebop, Love Hina, Onegai Teacher, Nadesico, Escaflowne, GTO, Haruhi.. Have seen many more, too many really now I come to think of it.

    Robotech, so gun.

    Watched all the typical one's as a child.

    Cowboy Bebop has the most epic final episode out of any show I've watched, love it. The film's good too.

    Trigun would be a personal fave.

    Haha Geg you legend, the Lupin movies are amazing. Watched a bunch of them with my friend Az who is a total anime freak and got me into watching it, has been good times.

    Death Note was split for me, the first half of the series was amazing and then a big plot twist occured and it went ****.

    As for what I own:

    Hajime no Ippo (Best series, got me properly in to Anime and still my favourite)
    Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann (only one that I place on a level with Ippo)
    Full Metal Panic
    Samurai Champloo
    Cowboy Bebop
    Afro Samurai
    Basilisk
    Bleach

    and probably gonna get this Code Geass if I get into it. Will watch the first episode today

    I know a lot of people who love Trigun, I thought it was solid, but not awesome.

    I've only heard good things about Full Metal panic, worth it?

    I'd say so, very funny series and has a pretty interesting story. Great characters as well. Though at parts it just gets dark out of nowhere for a couple of eps and then goes back to being funny. Also there are three parts, Full Metal Panic, FMP: The Second Raid and then fumoffu which goes inbetween the two which was a 12 part filler series which was just all comedy. And it is definitely one of the funniest things i've ever seen in my life.

    Should really finish all of them, they're excellent series.

    You guys should read Ai Kora, the manga that the author of Midori no Hibi's currently making. It's way funnier than his first effort.

    Haruhi was just something KyoAni made in their off-season, between their big visual novel projects, Kanon and Clannad. Nobody knew it'd get that popular.

    They're making a second season, btw, but it keeps getting delayed for some unknown reason. It's based on the fourth novel, which fans, who've read the novels, say is the best.

    Death Note is legendary awesomeness. Part II is quite mediocre, though.

    Bleach is good, harmless fun.

    Don't know which plot twist you're talking about, but if it's the timeskip, I agree.

    Definitely. The first season is a bit off, because Gonzo are pretty ****e producers. They omitted some stuff from the novels, and added some meaningless filler. Still pretty decent. Fumoffu and TSR are awesome, though.

    Anime List, Manga List.

    They're both incomplete due to my laziness, though, and the Manga List has only A-M included.

    Haha, I'll try looking at Death Note later today, read the first few bits of Bleach yesterday, and will get round to watching Haruhi, got home late last night, watched RAW and then fell asleep watching Dexter...but it's sat on my desktop waiting....so i'll get to it soon.

    Loving the Bleach Filler arc at the moment as well. usually "filler arc" is something that makes me cringe but on this one they seem to have learnt from the mistakes of the cake shop debacle and said "Alright, we need to pad out some time while Tite writes more manga, and our last attempt was roundly farted on, so this time instead of doing that we'll write a completely different storyline that makes absolutely no sense in the canon timeline of the series but we'll introduce a few badass new characters, have Ichigo and everyone have all of their best powers and we'll eventually have them war with soul society again"

    ****. yes. Anything that means more Soi Fon is fine by me

    edit: hahaha, looked at your manga list Sriram, see we have read a lot of the same stuff. Ichigo 100%, dire. xD Read the first chapter thinking it may have something to do with Kurosaki (was still a anime/manga nub at the time) and then couldn't not finish the story. But damn. lol japan is about the only thing I can say
