    I downvoted only the ones that had "France" or "Paris" in the synopsis.
    Basically because I'm biased against France and French people, don't hate me :/

    I'd be fine with any except Tasogare, already seen it and not as interested in watching it again.
    How'd you like Tasogare? I downloaded it, but I've yet to watch it. It looked interesting. I skipped through an episode just to get the general feel of it and it reminded me of Another. Not necessarily similar in plot (I don't know much about aside from what MAL says), but atmosphere and art style. And if it's anything like Another that'd be awesome. I absolutely loved Another.

    A shame. Ikoku Meiro no Croisée looks pretty good.

    I'm surprised it's gotten up to 17 votes though, I didn't realize we had so many here that would be on within a few hours of each other. Must have a lot of lurkers?

    That's what I'm thinking too. Last poll I did didn't have nearly this many responses this quickly.

    We had like 5 people talk and suddenly 17 votes, what is this sorcery?

    Totally missed this earlier.

    It's a really good show actually, one of the better I've seen especially considering it's theme, it just doesn't have much re-watch value for me. Same with Kanon, I absolutely loved the show, but I wouldn't want to watch it again.

    I imagine a few people who didn't nominate anything voted and probably some lurkers as well.

    Good to hear. It certainly looks interesting. Yeah, some shows you just don't want to watch again, regardless of whether they're good or not lol.

    Doesn't look like either of my nominations made it into the poll, but I guess it doesn't really matter as I don't really think either would stand a chance winning.

    As it stands I'm rooting for Gankutsuou, because it's just a really solid show, and well worth a rewatch. It even made me read The Count of Monte Cristo.
    Other than that, I'll probably start watching Gunslinger Girl if it wins. I started that a couple of years back, but lost interest after a couple of episodes, and I'm thinking of giving it another chance.
    Maybe I'll rewatch NHK and Railgun if they're voted forth, too.

    What did you nominate? I must of missed it, my bad man.

    Just found your post, sorry about that. I had even seen it too, I just forgot about it when I was combing through the pages finding everyone's nominated shows.

    ---------- Post added 2013-03-17 at 12:42 AM ----------

    Since it's a new page I'll link the poll again. For those unaware, a few of us have nominated some shows to watch and the winning show will be discussed as we all watch it. Should be fun for those who wish to participate.

    I've read the first three volumes of Gunslinger Girl, and absolutely love it. I was thinking of trying to finish the manga before starting the series, but I have something where if I started a manga by buying it I want to finish it buy buying it and not using online readers. If it's voted for I'll gladly watch it though. I heard the show is great.

    I'm with you on rewatching NHK and Railgun, which is why I nominated them.

    That's ok, as I said, I don't really think either would've done well, they don't really grab you just by reading the synopsis.


    EDIT: For some reason my last post disappeared when I tried to edit it. Oh well.

    I was actually going to watch Railgun soon anyway, since I'm watching Index at this very moment lol. (Needed to check it out before april comes, since that's when Railgun 2 is out).

    You have until April 12th to watch Railgun. I'd even check out the manga, only around 55 chapters and it's really good.

    Also, the first half of the Railgun anime is based off of the manga but the second half is JC Staff original work because the manga wasn't far enough. The second season starts around chapter ~32 of the manga with the Sisters arc.

    Just found out there's a spin off for Haruhi that's about Nagato in the alternate timeline where she's a normal girl. I must have this. Definitely buying it as soon as I get the money.

    Who can resist this?

    Yeah don't worry, I'll watch it even if it doesn't get through here. ^^

    I was watching it and I was like; heeeeeeeeeeeey I know that voice. Shiroyasha's (Mondaijitachi) seiyuu also did Kuroko in Index/Railgun.

    I guess I'm not the only one who likes it when they recognise a seiyuu though.

    Didn't even notice Accel World's Takumo had the same VA as Izayoi (Mondaiji) though, moment of shame. QQ

    Every time I hear a voice I like I MAL them to see what other roles they've done.

    Then forget about it and a few days later do it again and end up just as surprised as before.

    yeah after a few roles i tend to memorize someone's voice. Only one time did jun (lelouch whose last name i can't remember) I couldn't recognize. One I've noticed I've watched multiple times (haruka tomatsu) I haven't been recognizing at all. (morg, asuna, sakana to name a few roles)

  19. #17659
    Yeah, same as several other people, I voted no to several series I like quite a bit because I'd rather not rewatch. (Kanon, Tasogare, Trigun, Full Metal Panic) Great shows, just hoping we find the one the fewest people have seen.

    So I'm almost done FMA... can anyone tell me the differences between FMA: B? I know they are pretty different from each other, I just want to know when they diverge. I tried searching this a week or so ago, and I got spoiled about somebody's death, so I'd rather not go into google until I complete FMA...
