Agreed with all your points except .hack//Sign, but that's okay since it's not everyone's cup of tea. However, there's a lot of worse shit than Death Note. Want an anime with a promising first half that blows up in the ending? Try fucking SOUL EATER. ...or Original Fullmetal Alchemis...

Watching and being disappointed by Umineko no Naku Koro ni . Good, but could have been fucking amazing with a better director and a doubled episode count. Too much was squeezed in too fast, and the director tries too hard to copy his success with Higurashi, by giving people (usually Maria) *...

Finished Noein. This series was a real mixed bag. There were things I loved about it...things I didn't love about it...and things that were whole-heartedly "meh." Without too many spoilers: Atori bugged me. I didn't know why he was around after a certain point. And his continuing e...

Put Noein temporarily on-hold to finally continue Welcome to the NHK. Brilliant show. It's hilarious, and yet the drama and characters are awesome. The episodes that dealt with otaku culture and eroge were really well-done satire. I have a feeling that if I were a bit more of an otaku I'd be...

Still watching Noein, and I still have absolutely no idea how I feel about the series. I'm well over half way done with it, too. 15/25. It's starting to become "Quantum Physics: An Animated Textbook on Pseudoscience," but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I wish the animation...

Currently watching Noein - Mou hitori no kimi e. Seems good so far, the animation goes from excellent to terrible at times, but at least the fight scenes are well-animated. The sci-fi seems a bit too silly to be "sci-fi," but I'll reserve judgment until I get done. Love the characters,...

Yeah, he probably had his longer. But he did have that brief CURLEH MUSTACHE interlude, which I never bothered to shoop onto mine.

I recently started watching Stewart and Colbert since I'm a sucker for political humour, and I actually like that Stewart's show is taken somewhat seriously. Because by watching the Stewart/Colbert hour I can actually consider myself informed on current events and not be bored to death. That...

Yu-Gi-Oh!'s not that bad at all if you aren't talking about the 4kids dub...or, should I say, the second and third seasons weren't that bad. The rest was pretty bad. But for those two seasons, it's better than Naruto and Bleach... As for me, I don't really hate any anime. Though ...

I actually haven't seen any of the series' that you're considering, but I would like to highly recommend Cowboy Bebop. While it has a plot, the plot is rarely touched on in favour of standalone episodes that favour character interaction. The animation is excellent for a 90s series, and t...

Yeah, there's an anime called Romeo x Juliet, but apparently it wasn't very good or something, and didn't follow the Shakespeare plot at all. Never saw it myself. ...and why is R&J the play that gets the most attention of his? It's not my favourite Shakespeare story by any means,...
