    And that it's so popular makes me hate it even more. Seriously I wish someone could take all such things and put it in an active volcano. >:p

    Watched you say...

    - The Mysterious Cities of Gold (awesome imo)
    - My Neighbour Totoro (wanna see that again just to remember it)
    - Sailor Moon (please don't hate me)
    - Pokémon (though I stopped watch it when the 3rd generation Pokémons came)
    - Sonic X (saw some episodes, meh, I like Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog better)
    - Animatrix (worst anime ever, the plots were just random and shit)
    - Boondocks (saw some episodes, some are quite funny and some are just crap)
    - Cardcaptor Sakura (boring)
    - Cowboy Bebop (decent)
    - Steamboy (pretty good)
    - Spirited Away (pretty good)
    - Some kind of a movie about a human boy and a girl robot, and there was a war between humans and robots. Cannot remember the title name though. It was quite good.
    - Berserk (saw two episodes, the plots were confusing)

    I can't remember if I have seen more anime movies.

    I saw this anime movie when I was about four, but I can't remember the title. It was about this girl who was the lost princess of an advanced technological civilization that inhabited a city that was in the sky. Has anyone seen a movie like this? If so, tell me the name of it please.

    it's called "castle in the sky" or "Laputa"
    Eventhough it's for kids it's a great Movie like every movie made by the animation studio Ghibli

    Well I watched/read:
    - Elfen Lied (great but really sad story)
    - Hellsing (vampires, guns, blood ... what else do you want?)
    - Serial Experiments Lain (well ... it was very confusing to me, but it was good ... I think I didn't get everything in that series)
    - Bleach (it was very stylish, but it really sucks now)
    - Death Note (just great)
    - Higurashi no naku koro ni (the first four epiodes were really creepy but it got worse after the second arc...)
    - Blood+ (pretty good)
    - Black Lagoon

    and some more

    If you've seen one episode of a show where people pilot giant robots, you've seen them all.

    I'm not much of an otaku. Mostly, I read manga online. Tsukihime, Angel Heart, Full Metal Alchemist, Bleach, Yu-Gi-Oh! (which makes for infinitely better manga than anime), Naruto (same thing as Yu-Gi-Oh!), Death Note, Claymore, Black Lagoon, and then a few others that I can't remember right now.

    As far as Anime, Witch Hunter Robin, s-CRY-ed, FMA, Blood+, Ghost in the Shell, Cowboy Bebop, Big O, Samurai Champloo, Steamboy, and probably a few others that I can't remember.

    As a matter of fact, Howl's Moving Castle is based on a book by some English (I think) woman.

    Sorry, i'm not a closet anime/manga nerd. Hell the only comic books/graphic novels I have are Star Wars.

    But, I do watch a teeny tiny bit of anime and that comes in the form of Cowboy Bebop, which I love. That and i'll watch Astroboy if there's nothing else on very late at night.

    Those are really the only animes that i'll watch. The rest are either too confusing or too wierd for me, and I can't be arsed with them.

    Mind you, as a small child I DID fall in love with anime in the form of Monster Ranchers... if you can count that as anime >.>

    Monster Rancher was sick. So was Escaflowne. And all the other anime they had on Fox Kids before it became FoxBox, or YTV.

    TV or manga:
    Minami-ke (full of randomness)
    Minami-ke Okawari (done by a different studio, season 2)
    Lucky Star (randomness)
    Evangelion (obviously Gendo needs to see a psychiatrist, he is shown CONSUMING Adam in the 11th volume of the manga. Volume 10 and 11 are full of shonen ai, Kaworu kissing Shinji part was a bit gay. Manga is going to use the End of Evangelion ending.)
    Gundam Wing (omae wo korosu)
    Mobile Suit Gundam (TOBE GANDAMU!)
    Kidou Senkan Nadesico (leet opening song, You Get To Burning)
    G Gundam (leet, only super robot Gundam in the entire series)
    Naruto (good at first, like the wave country and chuunin exams arc were good)
    Bleach (same as Naruto, only the soul society arc was good)
    3x3 Eyes (manga, gorey, but realistic that way duh)
    Yu-Gi-Oh (yami no game series, the whole card thing after that became stupid)
    Pokemon (1st generation was leet, watched it when I was a kid zomg!)
    Doraemon (timeless classic)
    Super Robot Taisen OG (lol this actually has its own anime)
    D.N.A^2 (manga, pretty good)
    I"S (manga, ummmm a little bit too long winded)
    Dragonball (manga, good before the introduction of saiyans)
    Mahou Sensei Negima (manga, not finished yet)
    Love Hina (both manga and anime)
    Cardcaptor Sakura (lol watched its English dubbing as a kid)
    Initial D (not too bad, really)
    Slam Dunk (the series stopped suddenly wth)
    Yu Yu Hakusho (I reckon Bleach ripped its idea off IMO)
    Video Girl Ai (manga, only got first 2 volumes)


    Movies:
    Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz (about as stupid)
    End of Evangelion (kimochi warui)
    Nadesico: Prince of Darkness (Ruri appeared in like 90% of the screen time)
    Naruto the Movie 1-3 (pretty good, ninja action-filled instead of giant monsters vs giant monsters like recent Shippuuden episodes)
    Bleach the Movie (not the Diamond Dust rebellion)
    Toki o Kakeru Shojo (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, good music, very very good storyline)
    Laputa, Castle in the Sky (Studio Ghibli stuff are always good)
    Spirited Away
    Howl's Moving Castle (don't really like this too much though)
    Kiki's Delivery Service
    Nausicaa of the Wind Valley (interesting idea)
    Grave of the Fireflies (very very sad story, I actually did cry at the end)
    My Neighbour Totoro (huh)
    Porco Rosso
    Pom Poko (k this is bad)
    Whisper of the Heart (not too bad slice of life)
    Princess Mononoke (epic)
    The Cat Returns (ummmkay nekomimi)
    Tales from Earthsea (typical storyline)
    Byosoku go Shenchimetoru (very very detailed and nicely colored scenes, I like this one very much)


    And probably some others I have missed out. Don't think I'm an otaku. Don't think I'll include stuff like Words Worth *ahem* and Night Shift Nurses...

    Monster Rancher was a good game(the classic PSX one), but didn't really like the show itself :(.

    Funny, I never played the game, but I enjoyed the show a lot.

    The same can honestly be said about Digimon. I know that it was a stupid fad, but I really enjoyed the show itself, it was well done, and the first season (plus movie) was like heaven for me as a kid, and how they reintegrated the kids (and Digimon) into the real world was pretty sweet, I mean 6/6/6 and that whole bit? Pretty brilliant for your average kids anime cartoon...
