Pam - I just finished watching the entire FMA-Brotherhood series on disk. LOVED it. Heard it is more 'true' to the manga.

My favorite anime tend to be pretty eclectic.

First, and all time forever favorite is the Saiyuki series. Sadly, I don't love the anime as much as the manga (and everything that Minekura-sensei does!) but it's still excellent and I can't wait for the Gaiden portion to come out.

The rest tend to be a bit of a toss up, and liking the anime doesn't always coincide with liking the manga for me.

Initial D - Drift racing, with a main character voiced by my all time favorite seiyuu. I've watched this series at least a dozen times.

Soukyuu no Fafner (released as just Fafner in the US) - A fantastic mecha series with an amazing relationship between some of the characters. It's kind of an Evangelion lite, and Kazuki doesn't annoy me as much as Shinji does. (I do like Eva! Fafner is just a bit easier to watch without brain melting.)

Gungrave - I don't even know where to start with this one. Um. Gangsters? This anime is awesome and full of guns and violence.

Yukikaze - Short and awesome. It's another mecha type show, sort of, in that it involves fighter pilots.

Chrono Crusade - This series broke my heart, but was still amazing. I expected something much lighter when I started watching it, but loved it intensely all the same.

Last Exile - Airships! A great story and gorgeous animation. I didn't think I'd love this either, but I picked it up for cheap and I'm so happy I did.

L/R (Licensed by Royal) - A spy show that's pretty short, and was sadly overlooked when it was released. The dub is amazing and the characters are wonderful.

I could go on, but I won't. I also love a lot of the traditional favorites (Bleach, Cowboy Bebop, ect) but I wanted to give some love to shows that aren't mentioned as often.

I liked the xxxHOLIC anime, but it doesn't cover the full story of the manga--at least not right now. I think I'd heard a rumor that they might do another season later. I love the opening song! And it was so fun seeing all the characters animated. I have a soft spot for Watanuki...

I am part of a tiny anime club that spreads the cost around a little bit. That's how I got to see Utena and Sailor Moon. And xxxHOLIC, come to think of it.

I've been meaning to watch the XXXHolic series! I've read the manga, and it was fabulous.

I will have to get torrenting perhaps (or Netflix'ing if I want to be good and legal about it lol) soon!

I just started watching Shugo Chara the other day on crunchyroll.com, and I'm up in the air on it so far. It seems cute, but I'm not sure if it can hold my interest for 100+ episodes. Haha

I love Revolutionary Girl Utena! And Sailor Moon and Chobits and... Fullmetal Alchemist is also one of my favorites. A bit mainstream, I guess, but I still like it.

Looking at your list, other manga and/or anime I like that you may enjoy are:

- Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle (by CLAMP)
- xxxHOLIC (by CLAMP)
- Emma
- CardCaptor Sakura (by CLAMP--Do NOT get that goddawful butchered American version called "Cardcaptors." CardCaptor Sakura has a m/m pairing and a one-sided f/f pairing, and Cardcaptors essentially cuts out all relationships to avoid those pairings.)

I know I'll think of more later, but these are my favorites off the top of my head. ^_^

-Revolutionary Girl Utena (all time, hands down fav!)
-Kannazuki No Miko
-Chobits
-Bleach
-Strawberry Panic
-Vampire Knight
-Paradise Kiss
-Maria-sama ga Miteru
-Rozenmaiden
-Nana
-Fruits Basket
-Pitaten
-Sailor Moon
-Simoun
-Scrapped Princess
-Popotan

I know I'm missing some, but I really used to be more into manga than anime. I've been slacking on keeping up with either as of late. Hopefully I'll see some good recommendations from you lovelies though!

Loveless... Oh yeah! I wish the mangaka would stop messing around and get her monthly chapters published though. The release of the manga seems to have realllllly slowed to a crawl. I'm worried because Kouga Yun has a history of walking away from her manga series, leaving them unfinished. No, no! Don't do that to Loveless!

I love Fullmetal Alchemist, both the manga and the anime. I've just started watching Fullmetal Alchemist - Brotherhood on Cartoon Network. Has anybody else seen "Brotherhood" and what did you think of it?

I hadn't heard of Nyan Koi! before, but it sounds fun! GOTHICLOLLIPOP, you said it ended too quickly. I just read that they announced a second season after the 12th episode of the first season. Were you able to see two seasons of Nyan Koi! or is only one season available? (I'm hoping that there's more Nyan Koi! available than you saw and that it ends better.)

Hellsing is one of my favorites, too. I really like the music--I have both of the soundtracks. I also have a little Celes Victoria action figure on the bookcase with my DVDs ^_^ You know, Celes was one of the characters I had always thought about cosplaying...

Some of my other all time favorites are Fruits Basket, Fullmetal Alchemist, Trigun, Loveless, and Cowboy Bebop.

We just finished watching Nyan Koi in our anime club, which I really liked, although I thought it ended too quickly. I just started watching Samurai 7, and it looks like that's going to be a good one too.

I recently have seen Vampire Knight. Awesome series.
I've heard of Monochrome factor. Just never had the time to really check it out.

I love Trinity Blood. It's also a fantastic vampire series.

But I think the series that really takes the cake for me right now is Blue Dragon! Oh my gosh! It's exactly like the DBZ style and I knew that Akira Toriyama had some influence behind that series! Ah ha! Hehe!

Thanks again, LadyTroll! Now I have new titles to look for. I'll look for Perfect Lady Evolution, Trinity Blood, and Black Blood Brothers. (I still have to find time to watch Gakuen Heaven though.) I like most vampire stories, but if Vampire Knights is sad, you're right--I wouldn't like that.

I really enjoyed the manga Vampire Game, but I don't know if they made an anime of it. It's not yaoi and the main character is a female, but it does have some pretty young men.

Some of My Favorites:
* Hikaru no Go
* The Slayers
* Ouran High School Host Club (thanks for the recommendation LadyTroll!!)
* Ghost Hunt
* Fullmetal Alchemist
* Descendents of Darkness
* Wallflower
* Prince of Tennis (Guilty pleasure [I love how their clothes blow off when they get super-super-super powered up] and my favorite anime ever for yelling at the TV!)

Fallen Favorites:
* Inuyasha (Favorite until the author didn't know when to end the story)
* Bleach (Anime is dragging with filler on Cartoon Network right now. Manga is still good.)
* Naruto (100 episodes of filler kinda killed my enthusiasm)
* Death Note (Loved it until the author killed my favorite character)

Full Moon wo Sagashi.te (added the . because of the stupid profanity filter ^_^;) is my favorite, and the great thing is, the manga is completely different from the anime, so you can enjoy both equally!

Yeah that's similar to what I do, I got tired of waiting and read the manga but sometimes I don't like knowing what's gonna happen in the anime because I read the manga. So for One Piece I am not gonna read past where they are on the anime, well I am REALLY far behind on the manga anyway chapter 157 out of 509 so yeah I got a ways to go.

Well episode 92 aired last month, I have to go check if episode 93 has aired yet, it has been a while I wonder if they are taking a break. And yeah Junjo Romantica is taking a break, they are going to see how well the series sells and maybe have a second season. I really hope it does well I love that series. I really don't have a favorite genre. I think I like a little bit of everything.

I believe to be extra-ordinary I can't do it without God and I have to do what the ordinary person refuses to do.

I also think we can do anything if we are willing to pay the price and take the time that our goal requires. Are you willing to pay the price and spend the time to gain your goal?

I believe to be extra-ordinary I can't do it without God and I have to do what the ordinary person refuses to do.

I also think we can do anything if we are willing to pay the price and take the time that our goal requires. Are you willing to pay the price and spend the time to gain your goal?
