HOWEVER, Eden of the East? SO. COOL. I'm SO glad I'm watching it (and I was the one who suggested it xD). Can't wait to finish this (probably WAY too short) series!

Eden of the East is a really amazing anime. The story line is one of the best I've seen in a long time and I love the animation and character design.

I recently finished Magica Madoka..... @____@ .... Wow... got to say.... it was NOOTTT what I thought it would be like when I thought, "Oh a Magical Girl anime!" T___T scary.... but AWESOME!!!

Starting, "The Familiar of Zero"

Persona 4: The Animation
Everything I could've ever asked from Atlus. Even includes a lot of inside jokes from the game, and makes their own.

...
Was going to list more, and then I realized, I don't really watch anime.

I'll prowl through this list for some good ones haha.
Currently working on: Rose Lalonde
No set day order yet for Kumoricon, but tentative cosplay is:
fem!Scout, Rose, Quote
Always open for reworking. Only issues I'm concerned about is Quote's gun and fem!Scout's gun; Never worked with props.

Re-watching 'Sailor Moon' and remembering why I love it~
Also watching 'Tiger & Bunny'~ <3

Tiger & Bunny sure is great, I watched it right when it was getting aired and man, the wait was awful.

I've re-watched it once, and I love it to death.

I just finished Shin-Chan, and am now starting Elfen Lied.  I'm sure I missed an episode or two, certainly parts here & there, and I've yet to see the last one.  Plus, it'll be in English, so I can catch what's going on easier.  Yay Kira Vincent-Davis!

Now that that's done, I just found Ouran High on Netflix, so I'm gonna re-watch that, especially since I missed the first 2 or 3 episodes.

I'm re-watching Samurai Champloo for the 3rd or 4th time, and I still love the hell out of it. Samurai Champloo and Tiger&Bunny are the only animes I've cared to re-watch and well, Samurai Champloo is defiantly my favorite anime... Ever.

Just watched Canaan, all in one sitting (only 13 episodes). Wow, really enjoyed it. Beautiful animation, an excellent balance of humor and intensity in the story, and some really great character/relationship development, complete with a couple tear-jerking adieus. Had my eyes glossing over at multiple instances. A beautiful, well-paced anime. Highly recommended.

Another - great horror story. You can't predict where it will go, and once you get hooked you won't be able to stop watching it until the end.

THis Spring has been good. There are about two shows each day that I like to watch. Some more than others, some just depend on how I feel that day if I want to bother/deal with watching a particular show.

My "A" list for this Spring; Dusk Maiden of Amnesia, Hyouka and finally found out about the name today, oooooh..., Kids on the Slope I might become a jazz fan, not just a Jaz fan, Tsuritama,

Call this the A minus or B plus list; Space Brothers, Bodacious Space Pirates this one almost gets the A listing but I think the writers need more story telling ability as well as all their knowledge of space related trivia, Mysterious Girlfriend X, Medaka Box.

And then there is always Naruto Thursdays...

Recorder And Randsell do not get on the Spring A list, because it was on my Winter A list, and it just continues.

Nyarko-san get a C. It's just too been there done that sort of show. I am more interested in actually reading Lovecraft's novels than watching this show currently.
Have Fun

^ I'd echo the recommendations for Dusk Maiden of Amnesia and Mysterious Girlfriend X, and will have to give the others a try. :)

And I'd give it a B-, but you're right about Nyarko-san (or Nyarlko-san, or Nyaruko-san, or whatever)... they rely too heavily on worn-out material, especially the "hypersexual girl chases uninterested partner" motif. Wonderfully weird at times, though.

I'm also watching Sankarea and Dusk Maiden of Amnesia. A little too lighthearted from what I adored in Another from last season, but I still enjoy it. c: Tsuritama is currently my favorite of the spring anime. I've already cosplayed Haru to a convention since I loved it so much. <3

I have compiled a list of anime that's available on Netflix that I either want to watch or have seen a couple of episodes and never finished.  They are:

Desert Punk
Fruits Basket
KenIchi: The Mightiest Disciple
Rosario Vampire
Sgt. Frog
Shuffle!
Soul Eater
Witch Blade
xxxHolic

Does anybody have any recommendations on what to watch first?  (Oh, yeah, I'm still trying to finish off 5 other series, 2 of which are getting close to being done, and one of which will take quite some time to finish, so this probably won't be happening for a while yet).

I just finished watching, "Angel Beat" .... I don't get the ending. Dx They should have made it 26 episodes, not 13.... so much more plot could have been installed in there.

Finally watching K-On! for the first time and have found it surprisingly good - I'm usually leery about things that get really popular, because then can be hit or miss for me.  This is one of those times where it lives up to the popularity.  Or whatever. 

Also, Boogiepop Phantom.  After reading the light novels first, it makes a heck of a lot more sense than just watching the anime alone would do.  Confusing at times, but it's interesting to see when and where I'm able to pick up on 'hey, that's so-and-so!'.
2014 Plans: Sakura Shinguji (Sakura Wars), Battle Royale!Sakaki (Azumanga Battle Royale crossover), and IJN Kongou (Kantai Collection) for sure.  Others still being debated.

I think that can be said about 90% of the series that have 13 or so episodes...

True. But the last few 13 episode animes I've seen actually stood as a complete story, Angel Beats was just.... wtf ending plot wise. xD

Really...?  I've had the complete opposite experience...  High School of the Dead was the worst violator of that...  I wanted to BECOME a zombie just so that I could eat the show's creator as punishment.  ;D

Currently re-watching:

Genshiken - Ogiue's intro is just hilarifunny!
Kannagi - I have a thing for Tomatsu Haruka  :D
Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi - This one is always fun to watch. This series made me really respect Tomokazu Sugita as a voice actor.

Just finished:

Ano Natsu De Matteru - Not bad  ;D

I apologize in advance for the length of this post. 

I am currently watching on Hulu:

1) Princess Tutu - The story is more complex than I thought it would be.  I haven't watched all of the episodes yet, but, I did watch the ending already.  For me, personally, it has one of the best endings to anime that I have seen.
2) Accel World - I like this one quite a bit.
3) Eureka Seven: Astral Ocean - It's disappointing that there are not much of the prior Eureka Seven characters in this one.  However, imo, it is still one of the better animes that I have watched this summer.
4) Romeo x Juliet - I am actually watching this series in both subtitled and English dubbed forms.  So, it is taking me longer than normal to get through the series.

Shows I watched earlier this year on Hulu:

1) Ouran High School Host Club - I liked it okay.  It wasn't as funny as I was hoping it would be.
2) Guilty Crown - I had a real love/hate reaction to this one.  There were some great parts to the anime, but, there were also so many contrived coincidences and characters sometimes seemed to randomly behave in whatever way that the plot dictated.  In other words, it was more of a shock-and-awe, plot-driven anime.
3) Is this a Zombie? - The lead male character was a pervert.  I found three of the lead female characters annoying.  They were constantly accosting the guy even when he wasn't doing anything wrong. However, some of the comedy moments worked for me.  I thought that the main magical girl outfit in this anime was well-designed, fashion wise. Also, after having to watch so many magical girl transformations in animes over the years, I found it amusing to see a male character have to do the magical "girl" transformation. As well as, the lead male character can be downright sweet and caring some of the time.
4) C3 - The fan service/ecchi was annoying, but, the lead male character wasn't a pervert and the premise was intriguing.  I really liked this one, overall.
5) Ultra Maniac  - I liked it okay. 
6) Darker Than Black - Season 2 - I liked the first season better. I didn't like that there was so little of the season one characters.
7) Pandora Hearts - I actually saw the first 3 episodes of this at the 2011 Kumoricon.  So, I was happy to see that this anime title was on Hulu.  I had a somewhat mixed reaction to this. Not really the love/hate reaction that I had to Guilty Crown, it was more that I was just disappointed some of the time. In general, I liked it overall, though.
8) Future Diary - A really brutal anime.  I did like the ending.  The way that they resolved it worked for me.
9) The Legend of the Legendary Heroes - This had some really great plot points.  I loved the tragic friendship between Sion and Ryner.  However, to me, Ferris was a very annoying, unlikable character.  She was constantly attacking Ryner, calling him a pervert, when he a) wasn't a pervert and b) wasn't doing anything wrong.

Shows I tried but couldn't get into:

1)Binbogami Ga! - I found the two lead characters annoying.
2) High School DxD - Lead character is a pervert and the anime seems aimed at guys.
3) Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine ---- Fujiko has a clothes issue in much of the 1.25 episodes that I watched... In that, she's not wearing any, much of the time.  It's really rather distracting, annoying, and it takes away from the story.  As much as I liked the Castle of Cagliostro, I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in watching nekkid Fujiko.  I do wish that there were more anime's featuring adult characters.  But, not in this way. So, definitely not in this way.
4) Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere - Aimed at guys.

A couple of days ago, I looked at Comcast On Demand and went to the FUNimation area. I watched episode 7 of My Wife Is A Mermaid; this show is funny! I wish I had started from the beginning, though...

2) High School DxD - Lead character is a pervert and the anime seems aimed at guys.
Hey I'm a guy and I didn't like this one either.

^ ...is that one High School of the Dead?  If so, it's not that it's aimed at guys, but fans of zombie movies, shows, and video games.  Aside from the somewhat-stereotypical fanservice being used, such tactics were used because the guy who created the series is more known for hentai.

5) Maria Holic - Really unlikable lead male character (who dressed as a girl). For me, personally, one of the most unlikable lead characters that I have seen in any anime. He was just such a cruel, mean-spirited character.

Personally, I thought this series was great, partially because he's a jerk.  It should be pointed out, as well, that he's not the main character; that would be Kanako.

High School of the Dead is a different anime series.  I haven't watched that one yet.

For me, personally, one of the things that I tend to like about anime series is that in many of them, the characters tend to be more complex than the characters in U.S. TV shows and movies. In other words, characters in anime series are often times more "shades of grey" than their "black-and-white" U.S. counterparts.   A good example of this would be Martian Successor Nadesico which has some of the main characters' enemies behaving in normal, human ways, like in the Nadesico movie, where some of the women in the opposing army demanded that the guys put clothes on Yurika out of basic decency.  Or, when the opposing military leader surrendered and stated, "Can you guarantee the safety of my men (troops)?" --- Paraphrasing, don't remember the exact dialogue.

So, for me, a seemingly black-and-white villain and/or jerk in an anime is a bit of a turn off. Though the writers in Japan tend to think up reasons why, so-and-so, behaves the way he/she does and the reasons are usually well thought out explanations.   However, it is usually revealed late in the season or series. Personally, I prefer it when they reveal it more early on, like in Gosick.  The lead female character, Victorique, is a bit of a Sherlock Holmes jerk type.  However, you know, early on, why she ended up that way, because of the way her family had treated her.  She hadn't experienced much love in her life.  Kujo is her first real friend and companion.

Anyhow, I finished watching Princess Tutu. While the cat character was somewhat annoying (and creepy), I enjoyed the series for the most part.

I liked Accel World's 24th episode.  It worked as a season ender or a series ender because it wrapped up most of the most important and pressing plot points. I hope it gets a second season.

I have gotten up to episode 14 of Gosick, and really like it for the most part.  I am also watching Glass Mask and am trying out Campione!

Oh, also I pre-ordered the funimation version of hellsing ultimate.  I've already watched it with subs but I liked it so much it would be a nice thing to add to my collection to show off to friends (not that many visit me anymore )

Oreimo 2 (Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai, or My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute) has been the best show of the season thus far, but it needs more Kuroneko. (^_~)

Anyone else have a favorite for this season?
This is my serious voice. Otherwise, I'm just another anime fan, not a moderator.

I know it doesn't count as an anime, but I've been watching Beast Wars lately.  I love the innuendos, and was shocked to find out that Blackarachnia was voiced by Venus Terzo.
