Everything I’ve seen, and whether or not I liked it.
♥ = love
× = no love
.hack//SIGN: ♥ I wanted to like this more than I did (as well as the games which I never really got into) but I do like it.
Aishiteruze Baby | 愛してるぜベイビ★★: ♥ so cute and sweet!
Azumanga Daioh! | あずまんが大王: ♥♥ hilarious!
Air: ♥ It’s another Key-game-turned-anime. Good but very sad (U___U)
Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon | 美少女戦士セーラームーン: ♥♥♥ do you really have to ask? LOVE.
Blue Drop | ブルー ドロップ: Kind of nice, but short and a little confusing.
Card Captor Sakura | カードキャプターさくら: ♥♥♥ Very nostalgic for me, super cute, I’m all for non-canon pairings XD
Chobits | ちょびっツ: ♥♥♥ SO much nostalgia and symbolism taken from this series.
Clannad | クラナド: ♥♥♥ The best Key-game-turned-anime so far – hilariously wonderful with sentimental moments (wouldn’t be Key otherwise)
Detective Conan | 名探偵コナン: ♥♥♥ I love love love detective stories and this completely feeds my need for it. Shinichi = ♥!
Di Gi Charat | デ・ジ･キャラット: ♥ cute short series of short episodes – if you were wondering about the Gamers mascots, these are them. I love the Party Night episode.
(Victorian Romance) Emma | エマ: ♥ romance story set in Victorian England. Everything is fairly true to history to the point where it feels a little weird to be listening to Japanese in that setting… the language does switch back and forth between Japanese honorifics and Mr/Mrs so that bothered me a little but if you don’t know Japanese you probably won’t care XD
Excel Saga | エクセル・サーガ: ♥♥ makes fun of several other series and is generally weird XD
Fullmetal Alchemist | 鋼の錬金術師: ♥♥ I like the series, and there are a lot of good things about it, but it’s not a favorite.
Gakuen Alice | 学園アリス: ♥♥♥ cute cute kind of weird show XD Wish the anime was longer, just going to have to read the manga I suppose (^^;)
Gunslinger Girl | ガンスリンガー·ガール: ♥ Nice music, mildly depressing story, not bad.
Haibane Renmei | 灰羽連盟: ♥ a good show, but not a great show. Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Murakami Haruki is better in my opinion (the book that apparently heavily influenced this show).
Hayate no Gotoku: ♥♥ On the surface, a story about an extremely rich girl and her (combat?!) butler, in reality it’s just an entertaining series that references many genres of anime/manga, as well as video games. There’s not much for ongoing plot (it possibly falls under the category of “romantic comedy”, a.k.a. full of misunderstandings and no one actually gets together at any point).
Higurashi no naku koro ni | ひぐらしのなく頃に: ♥♥ full of gore but good all the same. also kind of trippy XD
Higurashi no naku koro ni Kai | ひぐらしのなく頃に解: ♥♥♥ Even better than the first part, so this one gets the three hearts XD
Ichigo Mashimaro | 苺ましまろ: ♥♥♥ oh my goodness cutest show ever. without question. Also hilarious XD
K-ON! | けいおん！: ♥♥♥♥ Possibly one of my most favorite series, ever. Based on a 4coma, about four (later five) girls in a “light music” (pop rock) club at their school. I am Yui Hirasawa. I miss my all-girl high school band… XD
Kannagi | かんなぎ: ♥ I did really enjoy the anime… up until it ended abruptly. Reading the manga now.
Kanon | カノン: I love the story, but compared to the later version of the anime this one isn’t as good.
Kanon 2006: ♥♥ Spent way more time with characters other than Ayu. Love.
Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou | 彼氏彼女の事情: ♥♥ there’s a lot about this series that I identify with, primarily with Yukino.
Kodomo no Omocha | こどものおもちゃ: ♥♥♥ Love this series. Seriously.
Love Hina | ラブ ひな: ♥ I’ll admit it, I only watched this series because it’s something people kept referring to XD But I do like it, despite the weirdness of its situation and the fact that it’s harem XP
Lucky★Star | らき★すた: ♥♥♥♥ I love love love this show! It’s about nothing, basically, but it’s hilarious and I’ve watched it at least three times over by now.
Maria†Holic | まりあ†ほりっく: ♥ Yeah, this show was pretty much on crack? In a good way, but not a great way. Love the OP/ED, love the insanity, but there’s basically no plot. But lots of crossdressing.
Maria-sama ga Miteru | マリア様が見てる: Meh, I’m neutral on this show. There’s nothing I particularly liked about it. It’s full of girls but, eh.
Martian Successor Nadesico | 機動戦艦ナデシコ: ♥♥ On the surface it seems kind of mediocre at the beginning, but it really picks up.
The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi | 涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱: ♥♥ Watched it mainly because of it’s cult status (and Lucky Star referenced it) and it’s pretty good, if short! I’m reading the light novels, slowly.
The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi 2009: ♥♥ Although the dizzingly repetitive Endless Eight debacle turned me off to the new season initially, Sigh was done quite well, and if you cut out at least half of EE’s eps it’s great XD
Minami-ke | みなみけ: ♥♥ Another show about nothing but girls in school and their slightly weird lives. I wasn’t completely entranced with it (I like Lucky Star and Azumanga better) but it has cross-dressing so I have to acknowledge that XD
Minami-ke: Okawari | みなみけ：おかわり: × I only saw a couple episodes of this, but I couldn’t get into it. A different animation company took up the series and so the art and voices changed enough for me to feel weird about it. I liked the first style much better and didn’t bother to continue.
My-HiME | 舞-HiME: ♥♥ There’s a lot to like about this show, but it felt hard to get into, to me. I haven’t gotten around to watching My-Otome yet, although I intend to.
NANA | ナナ: ♥ good, but along with ParaKiss Yazawa Ai makes me want to strangle her characters.
Neon Genesis Evangelion | 新世紀エヴァンゲリオン: ♥♥ Do like it, kind of a head trip. XD
N・H・K ni youkoso! | N・H・Kにようこそ！: ♥♥ Pretty interesting series about a hikkikomori (shut-in) and the girl who’s trying to save him. Well, sort of.
Noir | ノワール: ♥♥♥ female assassins? HOW AWESOME IS THAT. Plus Yuki Kajiura music? ♥ yesplz.
Ouran High School Host Club | 桜蘭高校ホスト部: ♥ Okay so it’s reverse-harem, but it is funny XD Also I watched this on TV in Japan as it was being released so it has nostalgia value.
Paradise Kiss | パラダイス・キス: ♥ good, loved the idea and the music but the ending? eh.
Pretty Cure | ふたりはプリキュア: eh, neutral. It’s a really typical magical girl show, with characters I didn’t particularly care about, but didn’t hate either. Admittedly, I’ve only seen about 10 or so episodes, but somehow that seemed to be enough…
Puni Puni Poemi | ぷにぷに☆ぽえみぃ: ♥ short, but hilarious.
Ranma 1/2: ♥ To be honest I haven’t seen every episode of this series yet, but I like what I’ve seen so far in a sort of “yay this is fun and passes the time :D” kind of way.
Rozen Maiden | ローゼンメイデン: ♥♥♥ There’s a lot I like about this show but really? It’s dolls! XD Can’t go wrong.
Rozen Maiden ~träumend~: ♥♥♥ Second season, good as well.
Saishū Heiki Kanojo | 最終 兵器 彼女: ×× I really wanted to like this series. I just… I remember being completely repulsed by it. I finished it, but my god was this depressing and not in a good way.
Saki: ♥♥ If you don’t think mahjong can be Epic, this series will prove you wrong. Featuring a nearly all-female cast (most of whom seem to have crushes on each other), this unfinished storyline is pretty entertaining XD
Samurai Champloo | サムライチャンプルー: ♥♥♥ The music in this series is AMAZING. Also other good stuff. XD
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei | さよなら絶望先生: ♥♥♥♥ Love this series! Parodies/criticizes various aspects of Japanese (and Western) culture in a dark way, totally worth a watch but may be confusing if you don’t know much Japanese/Japanese culture)
School Rumble | スクールランブル: ♥♥ Cute, funny and kind of weird XD
School Rumble Second Semester | スクールランブル二学期: ♥♥ Just as good as the first season XD
Serial Experiments Lain: ♥♥ it’s hard to explain why I like this show, but, I do.
Shoujo Kakumei Utena | 少女革命ウテナ: ♥♥♥ SO much to love about this show.
Shugo Chara! | しゅごキャラ! : ♥♥ I like this show more than I was really expecting to, and it’s still going on. It’s kind of a group magical person anime, and the characters are pretty likable and interesting as a whole.
Skip Beat! | スキップ・ビート!: ♥♥ I really like this story as whole, but the anime left out a lot and ended strangely. Hopefully there will be a second season, but it’s almost better to just read the manga, which I am doing.
Strawberry Panic! | ストロベリーパニック！: ♥♥♥ a show full of yuri? with no boys to be seen? oh yes please.
Tantei Gakuen Q | 探偵学園Q: ♥♥ Admittedly I like the drama of this better than the anime, but the series is still good.
Tokimeki Memorial ~only love~ | ときめきメモリアル ~Only Love~: ♥♥ This is yet another adaptation of a galge/eroge/dating sim – stays light and funny throughout.
Toradora! | とらドラ!: ♥♥♥ Love this series! Funny, realistic personal relationships. Based on a light novel series, which I am now attempting to read.
Trigun | トライガン: ♥♥ Really good series, especially if you get to see all the episodes in order… XD The ending was kind of a sad/hopeful mix. Worth watching.
Tsubasa Chronicle | ツバサ・クロニクル: ♥♥♥ Okay I avoided this series for as long as I could. AU CLAMP characters? Meh. But unfortunately it is love, I cannot deny it XD Fay <3 <3 <3. So sad season 3 got cancelled.
xxxHOLiC: ♥♥♥ This is too short! And with
no real not much continuing plot! But I love it anyway. Freakishly skinny characters ahoy!
Yakitate! Japan | 焼きたて!! ジャぱん: ♥♥♥ a series full of puns and similar humor, the theme is… making bread! If you thought there would never be an anime about baking… well, you were wrong. And it’s pretty hilarious, to boot.
Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei | 【俗・】さよなら絶望先生: ♥♥♥♥ I cannot recommend this show enough! Second season, just as great as the first!
