    I didn't really like Teen Titans that much, they're all like wierd and then you just get Robin from Batman and it's like.... wtf?

    Spirited Away was AMAZING though. One of the 5 anime movies I've ever been able to sit through.

    Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, FLCL, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Cowboy Bepop, Samurai Champloo, Vision of Escaflowne, Elfen Lied (I think), Outlaw Star, Gundam, Sailor Moon, Simoun, Digimon, Tengent Toppa Gurren Lagann (I think), s-CRY-ed, Rozen Maiden, just off the top of my head. The manga versions came second, if at all.

    No. The reason anime are usually just adapted manga is because manga are safer. Anime have comparatively HIGH production cost, with no guaranteed return. Making anime out of manga is just safer.

    In my English class we had to bring in an item showing how Shakespeare was relevant in modern society.

    A random girl brought in information about some Shakespeare manga. Apparently this company did manga adaptations of a bunch of Shakespeare's plays, with Hamlet due out soon.

    Made me laugh, sounded pretty interesting.

    Not all of them are like that. Well, haven't watched all of them, but for example I'm pretty sure Rozen Maiden manga is before the anime, cause Kirakishou wasn't even shown in the anime, just some copy of hers. Anyways, yeah, there should be some exceptions in which the anime came before the manga (I'm stupid, I know, I should've said that most of the animes are based on the manga before them, not ALL of the animes ><), but that doesn't change the fact that the majority of the anime is based off on manga and not created before the manga or anything like that. But you're right, yeah. Must admit that you're very knowledgable on the whole anime-manga thing, which is very cool ^_^.

    If Rozen Maiden started as a manga, people wouldn't always be whining for a third season. I'll look it up, though.

    Edit: So it did start as a manga. They really should work on the 3rd season, lol.

    I like CLANNAD due to the artwork and the story. Avatar was quite a good show, although I don't really care what would happen next. A lot of you may bash me on this one, but I love Lucky Star due to the Childlike (Their about 16-17 yrs. old) characters.

    My favorite anime is "Welcome to the N.H.K." as most of you have realized it's not what-so-ever mainstream anime. But i like it because it has a very interesting sense of humor, and it has a fairly good representation of the world.

    Check Wikipedia if (probably) haven't heard of it, it's more somber then most though, and most who are interested in the actiony types like Naruto will dislike it.

    A close second would have to be soul eater which is nothing like N.H.K., i like it mainly because of it's great humor, and it's extremely unique art (My avatars from it) it's still in the production though, and probably not coming into English for awhile if ever. (You can see the subbed ones still though)

    The Naruto and Bleach anime suck because of the useless filler arcs, and you'd better be talking about the Japanese versions of all of those. [highlight]Especially[/highlight] One Piece.

    Lelouch Vi Britannia, the 99th emperor of Britannia, dies.

    Every single anime on that list is either some japanese commerical shit to make kids buy toys or simply shit.

    Animatrix is awesome.
