soc_puppet: [Homestuck] God tier "Heart" themed Dreamsheep (Sheep of Heart)

Finally - finally - I have finished watching Wedding Peach. I forgot how much I'd enjoyed the manga, and the anime followed suit pretty well (in terms of enjoyment; I can't remember whether all of the plot points mirror, though I suspect they don't), though it got pretty intense towards the end. The OVAs were a nice refresher, though not without problems.

The important thing is, it's time for me to start watching a new anime! And boy do I have a lot to choose from.

Anime I've watched part or most of but haven't managed to finish for whatever reason:
* Cardcaptor Sakura (I'm close to the end of ...season one? All the episodes with the first ending, I think.)
* Tactics (I got about half-way through and then got bogged down when it switched from Monster Of The Week to Actual Plot Type Things Maybe)
* Getbackers (I got half-way through and then got distracted by I don't even know what)
* Yu Yu Hakusho (I got bogged down in the Dark Tournament, because it was going on for-fucking-ever; seriously, it's more than a whole season long, and tournaments are not my biggest draw in anime)
* Maria-sama ga Miteru (
* Kaleido Star (I watched a few episodes and it wasn't holding my attention enough; possibly I was just out of sync with anime storytelling cliches, though, since it is very much that)
* xxxHOLiC (I don't even remember why I stopped watching)
* Grenadier (I am judging myself hard enough for everyone, okay)
* My OTOME/My Zhime (I think there was romance-subplot-related embarrassment squick on the horizon, so I pursued something else for a while; now I can't seem to find the DVDs (or for Mai HiME, which I actually enjoyed rather a lot), which distresses me; there may be Cleaning in my immediate future.)
* .Hack//Roots (I think I got about half-way through this? My brain is insisting that I did, and then quit because the MC was Making Bad Choices, but I remember very little about the series itself :/ That may be A Sign.)

Anime I own all of but haven't really watched any of yet:
* Cowboy Bebop (I managed to miss all of its Adult Swim and/or Toonami runs, and it's one of the Big Names)
* Rahxephon (Just picked this one up recently from Half Price Books. I know nothing about it besides the disc summaries and one AMV I saw. It looks cool and well animated, at least?)
* El Cazador de la Bruja (HPB purchase. Read about it on Okazu; the third of what Erica Friedman categorized as BeeTrain's "Girls With Guns On The Run" thematic trilogy.)
* Noir (See immediately above. The first of said thematic trilogy. I've already watched the second, Madlax.)
* Sukeban Deka (I'm pretty sure I read about this on Okazu as well, but damned if I remember anything about it. Badass lady character getting into fights. Also it's just a movie rather than a whole series, so.)
* Mononoke (This looks really pretty? And I'm pretty sure I remember at least one of my friends here loving it...)
* Saiyuki (I've actually seen a bit of this, but it's been so long that I'm not counting it.)
* Antique Bakery (Well. I know it's GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY and did I mention GAY, and also probably food porn? I don't usually go for contemporary dramas, but I have heard it's very good.)
* Big Windup (I followed the manga for a good while, and relate to Mihashi so hard. Sports anime about baseball with a main character who has an anxiety disorder (I think), and also there's hella gay subtext. Also, the lady who formed the team is hella badass and awesome and I might have a tiny crush on her.)
* Saint Tail (I've finally read all of the manga! The anime may take a little while to get through, though. Minor point against: No dub track. I like to crochet while watching, and dubs make it easier on me.)
* Utena the Movie (...Yeah, I have no idea. I found it at a Planned Parenthood Book Sale a number of years ago before even seeing the series, and I still haven't watched it.)
* Toward the Terra (Another one I have almost no idea about. It also appears to be in its original packaging, and I'm not entirely sure I want to change that without learning more about it.)

I think that's it? I've. I've got a lot of watching to do. I need to figure out what I'm in the mood for.

(Way up high on the Definitely Gonna Watch This list is Tokyo Godfathers, since I checked it out from the library today. So at least that's one decided.)

Cowbow Bebop. <3

Rahxephon is good stuff too, particularly if you can squash the "this is an Evangelion clone' annoyance for the first several episodes. Giant singing mecha!

Tokyo Godfathers had some language that read as pretty transphobic to me, but I quite enjoyed it despite that. (Features a character who is maybe transgender and maybe transvestite and the maybes are where it comes in, IIRC, but I saw it on an airplane somewhere between 20 and 30 hours awake, so my recollection is seriously fuzzy.)

Well, they're very good. :D

I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on them, after you've watched it.
