    RE: Top 5 Anime Series

    Yeah, I certainly will. Some of the newer Gundam series put me off Gundam as a whole to be honest as they often seem to be about angsty kid pilots (probably taken a page from Evangelion, though the Eva pilots were likeable) as opposed to the original series, which did indeed feature young pilots, but I did like the character development a lot. Great for its time; 1979. Did you ever see it?

    I'm also able to check out 08th MS Team soon I think, so I'll keep that in mind.

    RE: Top 5 Anime Series

    Hmmm... I have a lot of favorite shows but I'll make a top 5 favorite recently watched animes. Which would be the following:

    -Steins; Gate
    -Canaan
    -Angel Beats
    -Highschool of the Dead
    -Last Exile
    "(21:31:30) Kokirininja: will she notice the globs of glue....?
    (21:31:56) TheMachetejoe: Nope! I'm as stealthy as a mouse...on bear adrenaline."
    "(18:42:32) Hannah: I like to giggle when I sit in chairs."
    "(19:46:20) lloydSSJ4: I was contemplating my similarities with Fred Luo, while making a sandwhich."

    (23:27:52) Mantis: I'm thinking of banning the whole of the Philippines from the site.
    (23:27:56) Mantis: The whole bloody country.
    (23:28:05) Mantis: Because that's where most of the parasites come from.

    My top 5 would probably be these (excluding Outlaw Star, it's always #1...and an extremely naughty yet actiony fanservice anime (hint: s2 the main character becomes a girl))

    1. .hack//sign
    This definitely isn't for everyone. I watched it back on toonami and fell in love with the main character. It's the story of a textbook enigmatic kid that gets stuck in a virtual reality game when they go into a coma, and follows some of the other players within the game that try to figure out what's going on.

    2. Cowboy Bebop
    Guns and stuff

    3. Chaos;head
    A schizophrenic shut-in stumbles upon a gruesome murder scene by the "New Gen" serial killer, meets a bunch of weird girls with swords, and discovers some crazy delusional plot. This is probably HORRIBLE dubbed.

    4. Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei
    Literally "So long, mr. despair", this follows the humorous tales of a suicidal schoolteacher. Again, definitely not for everyone and most likely a pathetic dub.

    5. Rurouni Kenshin
    Swords and stuff

    RE: Top 5 Anime Series

    I've only seen 3/5 from your list. Rurouni Kenshin is one I remember seeing on Toonami (gonna rewatch it at some point, thats a lot of episodes though..) and .hack//sign on adult swim along with cowboy bebop (both of which I've re-watched recently). I really did enjoy the concept of .hack//sign and Mimiru is probably one of my all time favorite anime characters but I just found the show to be pretty slow at times .hack//roots was a big change of pace in that aspect but I still find them hard to choose between. I think .hack//sign did a lot better with their characters stories and personalities. As for angel beats I really did enjoy the show. The ending was really sad. Actually brought a few tears to my eyes.. :'(

    I loove Mimiru! Tsukasa is forever my favorite though... I think all of the .hack// series are pretty good, sign just sticks out as my favorite. As for Angel Beats... yeah I cried :'( it was REALLY good though, I especially liked TK and Kanade.

    1. DeathNote - Talk about great & memorable characters, subtle psychology, madness, humor, and a great plot, not to mention the greatest evil laugh since Snidley Whiplash!

    2. Soul Eater - Funny characters, evil villains, a good plot, weird as anything drawing style, and an interesting concept.

    3. Outlaw Star - Good plot, funny and engrossing characters, nice setting. Only drawbacks are the relative shortness and the voice actor for the best character: Aisha.

    4. Gantz - Dark, short, and bloody; just the way I like 'em! Plus, character growth! Never would've seen THAT coming!

    5. Berserk - Perfect for fans of violent anime with a good message. A pity about the fan disservice.

    RE: Top 5 Anime Series

    Another one of my infamous Top 5 lists! I'll try to limit myself to one anime per genre.

    5: Colorful: This is an odd adult anime I heard of at Colossalcon 2011 in Sandusky, Ohio. There's no clear-cut plot, but the running gag between all the male characters is to try their hardest to get the "perfect panty shot". No joke. Though it may seem simple, it's the simplicity, charm, and heavy humor that won me over. A good one to watch in-between 100+ episode series.

    4: Soul Eater: When I first heard of Soul Eater, I dismissed it as another "Naruto-esque" anime and didn't think much of it. It was when I actually watched it that totally flipped my opinion. I wasn't a huge fan of the ending, but everything about Soul Eater was crisp and lean for a 50 episode anime. Character development is huge, the voice cast is stacked, the action and humor gauges are balanced, and a surprising lack of filler makes Soul Eater one of the best animes in recent history.

    3: Elfen Lied: This is about as dark of a plot as you're going to get, in my opinion. There's not a single episode of this anime that lacks some sort of bloodshed, gore, or an otherwise depressing moment. It's this darkness that really touches your inner psyche, but instead of making you depressed, it makes you somewhat melancholy and somewhat...vulnerable. It's a crazy phenomenon that I've never felt with any other show (except maybe Evangelion), which makes Elfen Lied that much more memorable.

    2: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: Epic. That's all you can really say about TTGL. There's ALMOST never a dull moment: there's either a fierce battle going on, a serious character development moment, or even both going on at the same time with this anime. The balance of triumphant and mellow moments give Gurren Lagann a full-bodied flavor, and the climbing suspense throughout is more than enough to anticipate what happens next. Very appealling for younger and more mature audiences alike.

    1: Outlaw Star...Do I really need to say anything about this one? Well, maybe a personal point. As far as I'm concerned, this was THE show that got me into anime. I remember getting home from school every day to watch my daily dose of Toonami. Sure, there was DBZ, Dragonball, Tenchi (I think), and even Sailor Moon, but none of them held a flame to what Outlaw Star brought to the table. Everything, from the opening motivational monologues to the next episode bump, captivated me instantly. With Toonami's movement to the weekend in 2004 and its utter demise in 2008, as well as the discovery that Cartoon Network TOTALLY BUTCHERED the Toonami airing of Outlaw Star, all these factors kept spooring me on to buy it for DVD and experience the magic all over again. Bottom line is, I would be hard-pressed to name a similar anime that held so much nostagic value as golden as Outlaw Star did for me.

    (Sorry for the length...)
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.
