    it's difficult for me to give any real opinion, since all i can do is watch the op and read the description and some comments. but the comments on anisearch were quite negative overall, and i usually trust at least a few of those people.

    we'll see^^


    edit:
    btw Demoneyes, i'm nearly done watching Angel Beats!
    and i don't really know what to say.. i actually really enjoyed watching it so far, but there are many striking flaws.
    the logicial mistakes and inconsistencies are countless, the drama parts and character stories are for the most part way too short, unrealistic and excessive, the background story is kinda unique and interesting but it feels like the story writer(s) got confused by it them selves after a while, the humor is sometimes in rather inappropriate moments and most of the story and character "twists" didn't surprise me at all.

    but i still like it! hmm^^
    i guess that's mostly because the humor (even if it may be inappropriate or excessive in some moments) is very well done most of the time, i had quite a few good laughs, and i simply love Tenshi^^ she's cool, strange and cute at the same time
    the action parts are very good too, although that's only a small bonus for me personally.

    oh and new wallpaper for me

    original artwork <-- not done by me of course, i only edited it since i prefer dark backgrounds.
    will probably continue to edit it though when i feel like.

    Hm really? my overall search for it gave many good reviews but overall the anime felt a bit sluggish at points, anyways it fits the tags you were looking for quite well so its worth bringing up.

    Quite so, i guess they didnt quite get as much of a budget seeing as its only what 12 episodes? 13? it diverges alot from the manga who starts before Otonashi even gets into the picture, kinda think its good thou that it wasnt too long, they couldnt have prolonged it much anyways (was my feeling about it anyways)

    So Sy, I got addicted to that Kanon, Last Regrets theme...

    Here's the theme from Spirited Away, one of Miyazaki's most famous Anime films, played by the composer:

    If you like Last Regrets I think you will like this.
    I mean, I hope you do <3

    like i said already, it's definitely nice to get some tips, even if not all of them may fit
    Quite so, i guess they didnt quite get as much of a budget seeing as its only what 12 episodes? 13? it diverges alot from the manga who starts before Otonashi even gets into the picture, kinda think its good thou that it wasnt too long, they couldnt have prolonged it much anyways (was my feeling about it anyways)
    i didn't knew there was a manga o.O i thought the anime was the original in this case.

    and i think 24 instead of 13 episodes would have been a good choice. there are just way too many characters with their own story to get all of them done nicely in addition to the actual story with all it's twists, action and humor. you can really feel how the characters are going short because most of their stories have to be introduced, dealt with and finished in one single episode, plus humor and background story in every one of them. that's not how you create interesting, deep and original characters. and i think that's one reason why some of them feel so unrealistic and exaggerated.
    and most of the characters still didn't even get their own story, even if they are supposed to be interesting and unique persons.
    Grats
    thanks^^

    not bad, but it's not as beautiful and melodic as Last Regrets or Roaring Tides imo. although that may just be my subjective opinion, since i associate those two with scenes and emotions.

    i'm listening to Angelic Break Beats atm
    one of the best anime soundtracks i've ever heard. sadly it rarely get's played in the actual anime.

    Noooooooooooooooooo one Summer's Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.
    It's so melodic and haunting ='>
    I prefer it to Last Regrets, but it is a close thing. I think I just like the tune, from 1 min and 25 seconds in, to 2 mins 55 ish is beautiful ;]
    Roaring Tides went to my favourites, but Angelic Break I didn't like as much ;]
    Not bad, but not beautiful..

    A suggestion for you to try to watch from what your list has on it is The Wallflower, its a really funny parody that is just awesome! I mainly just watch rom-com myself and I have to ask is the Kanon 2006 different from the original? Most of what I've seen says its just a remake of it. And does anyone that reads these forums know if they ever plan on dubbing Vampire Knight Guilty like they did with the first season? (if you have info on VKG please post a link to your answer, no link means I don't have to get my hopes up... lol)

    i haven't seen the original and of course it's just a remake.
    BUT! the remake is awesome. the graphic and animation of the original is pretty bad and the one of 2006 is simply beautiful. the sarcastic humor of the leading character (which is one of the best parts of the anime) is not really present in the original version. the drama parts are not nearly as touching and the original version is restricted to 13 episodes, while the remake has 24.
    that's what i heard and read from some people at least, but the lenght and the new graphics are already good reasons to watch the remake.

    if you want a comparison:
    original Kanon: Ayu | Shiori | Amano & Yuichi
    Kanon 2006: Ayu | Shiori | Amano | Yuichi
    the old ones are just.. eew *shivers*

    i can't really say anything certain to the differences, but Kanon 2006 has one of the best endings from all the animes i've seen, although that's probably highly subjective.

    well, good luck xD

    Wallflower is pretty epic, read the manga and watched the anime, good stuff.

    Oh and Hellsing Ultimate rocks, much better then the first anime series.

    Hmmm, haven't seen Visions of Escaflowne here, that's a nice one as well.

    Aaaah, can't believe i forgot Saiyuki.... legendary.

    i've watched it. overall nice anime, but gets really long-drawn-out imo and there are a little too many teen-girlish scenes^^
    it's good, but not one of my favorites. everyone who may like big more-or-less-robots mixed with romance in an untypical fantasy setting should give it a try.

    Omg I finally found someone that likes The Wallflower!!! I never thought it would happen lol I've been suggesting it to my friends forever it seems...

    If im correct the "first" one with the story is a game, then the manga and anime...and i think all diverges

    Yea, in a way your correct but it would require them to create alot of more screen time for each and everyone which they probaly didnt have the content for, i guess it was intended as a short and bit touchy story and not a prolonged one....althou i would watch it and like it as much if it was 26 episodes i think it fits quite well with 13

    Has anyone mentioned Cowboy Bebop yet? I feel terrible that I forgot to list that its one of my favorite animes.
    and Yoko Kano did a fantastic job with the music for the whole series.

    I'd throw in Read or Die and Gantz if they aren't already mentioned.

    Read or Die is about these three "sisters" that have extensive control over, well, paper. One sister primarily turns paper in to animals (wolves, lions, covers a plane with a huge bird and lands it) the other sister turns it into Weapons mostly, bows, swords, etc, and the third, and youngest, just straightens out the paper and is like a fucking ninja. Its awesome-sauce.

    Gantz... I don't even know how to explain this one. Its about dying, being revived, getting a suit that augments your physical abilities, and going on missions to kill aliens. You don't find out why until pretty late, but it makes you think. '

    I'd say Air Gear, but that seems to fall into yours 15 and under category of what you don't read/ watch.


    And I'd also have to say Tenchi Muyo.

    Third Edit: Someone pointed out my memory lapse, so I fixed it.

    Its an amazing Anime with lots of Action and a bit of humor.
    Even the story line is (imo) very unique.
    Definitely worth watching (season 2 recently started as well).
    Winner of the Award: Troll of the year 2010... apparently.

    I watched Kampfer a few days ago found it to be quite amusing, story is a bit off during season 1, hopefully season 2 will come along (soon) and fill in the blanks the ending was a bit fail imo, but loved the characters, especially Shizuku Sangou <3 (as seen in my avatar! <3<3)
