3x3 thread

Let's have a 3x3 thread. Pick nine pictures to represent your favorite anime, manga or both and then put them together into a mosaic using this site:
http://bighugelabs.com/mosaic.php
Usually what people do next is rate the other charts in a "x/y" formula. "x" being the number of shows you liked, "y" being the number of shows you watched from the specific chart. You can do that, but that's kind of boring so we can just comment on each others choices or the mosaics themselves. You can also ask for recommendations based on them.

Here's my own chart:

I also have some charts with anime on them but mixed with non-anime/manga stuff, so that might be off-topic.

There are so many anime I like it's really hard to just pick nine, but I think this is a pretty good representation of shows that mean a lot to me, in no particular order..... other than Eva being the center of it all. Otherwise, feel free to mock or like my tastes. ^_^

there's a lot I recognize on the other lists, but a lot I don't too, Mr Tines, what are the ones in the top left and the bottom center?
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

Which image went where was more or less arbitrary and i probably could have made it prettier, but whatever.

Simoun (from the first few seconds of the OP) and Dennou Coil (a piece of "live action" fan art).

Also 2.5/5

For some reason my work computer is blocking all the images besides tehdonutking's so let me say for yours I've seen '97 Berserk, Cowboy Bebop, read Clannad, and read Azumanga. What is that kitchen show it looks familiar for some reason; is it Nia_7? You have quite a few shows I've been wanting to watch for a while though. Thanks for making me feel worse it's taken so long to get to them!

Anyways, this was really tough. I left out some manga I adore like Sanctuary and some anime I love like Brigadoon. Probably could've made a manga one and an anime one. These are all movies or series I've read or watched numerous times though.

Mr. Tines: I've seen that one before on /a/. Love Mushishi, Tutu and Eva. Liked Dennou Coil and Gankutsuou but wasn't really a fan of Simoun. I'm actually watching Mouryou no Hako right now

hui43210: Big fan of FLCL. Liked Akira, LotGH, Berserk and Revy is best girl. Thought Raxhephon was so-so and am watching Eurek Seven right now as well. Didn't like Code Geass.

Teh Donut King: Really like this one. LOved Penguindrum, Bebop, Utena, TTGL and Penguindrum. Liked the rest.

I cheated a fair bit with Host club and The Wallflower but seriously the two are so close in my mind and came at the exact same point int my life that I cant separate the two, they are equally great.
Also yes, putting the grasses on was necessary.

Yes -- "here is one I prepared earlier" in truth. I note you skirting past the non-shoujo magical girls, though.

For yours, I dropped FLCL, and haven't watched Casshern, *gatari, nor bottom middle (Angel's Egg?)

@TDK : 2.5/3

@MuscleRobo : If those are all manga, then 0/0, I'm afraid (and at best it would be 1/1 if that's an old Gundam I've seen). I watch my japtoons far more than read them.

@Rosenakahara : 4/4

Yeah, I haven't watched Nanoha and Yuki Yuna. Bottom-middle is Angel's Egg and I don't know what you mean by gatarti.

Top right -- given your reaction, I probably misidentified that, as well as having finger trouble writing "*gatari".

@Director Black: You don't upload to the forum; you host on your preferred image site and put a link.

My scores:
Javik 5/6
Tines 4/5 (also 4/5 as revised)
hui43210 4/4
TehDonutKing 6/6
MuscleRobo 0/0
@Rose - sorry, can't see yours because Tumblr's IPv6 implementation is seriously broken, and so my IPv6-enable system only sees half only half their servers (it's been like that since last year, in spite of people complaining).
EDIT - got to see Rose's on another computer: 4/4

Ah no, it's not Monogatari. It's Tatami Galaxy.

What exactly are you having problem with? Create the mosaic, copy it in into imgur. Then use the link with the image itself and put it in brackets.

Is this supposed to be a guessing game? I feel like some of the images chosen are deliberately cryptic, and no one is listing the shows represented in their mosaic.

Well, I'll play along, my list is easy mode though as I haven't watched that much anime.

Titles  SPOILER: Show
Gunbuster, Patlabor, Evangelion
Ghost in the Shell, Serial Experiments Lain, Record of Lodoss War
Berserk, Hanasaku Iroha, Kyousougiga

I think you're a bit paranoid. I recognize almost all the anime posted so far. Some of the titles are just less known in general, but if you know them you'll easily recognize the pictures from them. Besides, you can just ask others.
