    You think that's funny, you should see the titles of the soundtracks.

    First Donut, Second Donut, and Spicy Stewed Donut. Note that's how Donut is spelled on the CDs.

    And yeah, Trigun is another of my favs. I can watch it either subbed or dubbed, I'm indifferent as both tracks were done very well.

    Just got done watching Tenjou Tenge. Great series, terrible ending. It's an open ending, and I hate that. I think they want you to buy the mangas to finish the story line. Still a worthy watch tho.

    I watched Tenjou Tenge a few months ago.. wait.. almost a year ago. It was a awesome series, just made you want more.. Almost like Full Metal Panic! but that series is still going on... the second season wasn't to great, but the first and still watching the third is pretty good.

    I bet you like the fact that the older sister could transform into a hot chick!?! Then threw up when you found out the real Identity of the throwing knives girl huh???
    Sorry with not saying names... Spelling is bad on them.. lol

    Yeah, both caught me by surprise. lol.

    For Full Metal Panic!, the real second season is The Second Raid. Fumoffu was just a spin-off spoof type thing. Thrown in there for no real reason other than to entertain while waiting for TSR.

    the second season was pretty nice. I did laugh my a$$ off.
    I'm all for the "building your spirit" type of anime. Anyone ever heard of Coyote Ragtime Show? I've been watching it on the In damand thing of bright house. And its pretty nice.. got the nice looking chicks and so forth.. lol

    Yeah, I forgot about that one. I actually got it a while ago, but have since forgotten about it. I'll have to dig thru my back-ups and see if I can find it.

    I'm currently watching Ergo Proxy in a 720p rip.

    sweet.. Ergo is like Gilgamesh to me.. I keep watching the first dvd, first few eps., and I forget all about it...
    There is two "goth" type animes I loved the most. Trinity Blood, and Hellsing.

    Started Trinity, but forgot about it. (I do that a lot. lol)

    Love Hellsing. Have you checked out Hellsing Ultimate? It follows the manga more closely, but is largly the same story line so far. Better animation, too.

    Which leads me to more stuff lol: Vampire Hunter D and Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust. 2 great movies.

    I know the feeling on forgot about it! thats why i have so many dvd's in my que... so i don't! lol.. like all ways I've watched the first dvd of hellsing Ultimate, and forgot it.. It was A LOT better then the org. I have to say.

    Vampire Hunter D was great. Both are a top fav. of mine. I really fell in love with Blood. But the series just made me want to wish I never watched it... It was good, but it wasn't as good as the 1 hour movie! lol

    Yeah, exactly what I thought about Blood+, Blood: The Last Vampire was way better. They made Saya(sp?) way too girly in the series. I watched the first 20 or so episodes thinking it would get better, cause some anime does develop slowly (Eureka7 come to mind, doesn't get good until almost the second season, but it was worth holding out for), but I gave up after that.

    @Mand - Did you know there's a new Eva movie on the way? It's in theatres in Japan now. There's a screener floating around. PM for info. lol.

    Evangelion!! anywho I cant wait to watch the rebuild of it.... The CG of New Tokyo rising up from the ground looks amazing!!!

    Samurai Champloo was good great action scenes but the main story was very weak =/

    Currently watching:
    Bleach
    Clannad
    Hayate no Gotoku
    H2O - Footprints in the Sand
    Minami-ke Okawari
    Naruto
    Rosario + Vampire
    Shakugan no Shana 2
    They are My Noble Masters

    Winter season line up kinda sucks =/
    Cold Storm says thanks.

    AnimeNano.com is another way to get info but its all Bloggers

    I wouldnt say huge nor big. Huge/big would mean mainstream and anime is far from it. Its just like any other sub culture here in the US. It has its supports and when they go hard core they go hard core
