|Excellent series, cross between CBB and FMA. Best use of non-linear storytelling I have witnessed in a long long time. Just plain fun to watch (watch it all in one sitting).|

|First season of an superb action series. Exceptionally violent and exceptionally fun to watch. :D|

|Great second season, is some ways better, in some ways not. There will be no 3rd season (at least until there is more manga which probably wont happen).|

|Pretty much best ever. Space Jazz is epic.|

|Apparently there is epic chip eating here. And apples. Oh, and nihilism, forgot to mention that one, lots of it.
For the record, I watched this all in one sitting with out urinating.|
|First series I watched (not counting the original dragon balls). Quite funny. Illustrates perfectly the horrible confusion of adolescence. Good choice for the FTA game.|

|So I havent quite finished this yet, but the first part of the serries up to about 8 was one of the most amazing anime experiences I have had. The direction the produces took was not entirely what I was expecting and seems more like Huck Finn than anything else (there was some awesome potential which seems to have gone untapped).
So, I finished it, yes I can see why people might not like the ending, but personally, I enjoyed it. I found the ending to be satisfying. Trippy is definately a keyword for many of the episodes, surprisingly good at getting you to think about what is real, fortunately has the good sense to give you a definitive answer in the end.
I give this a 9 for actually being though provoking and engaging. The artwork and animation are excellent (I watched the h264 subs by shinsen).
Edit, upgraded to ten for parity with other ratings.|

|Alternate title is Beyond the Clouds: A place promised in our earliest days or summat. Awesome artwork. Story is so so, but the art by itself is worth it.|
|Last Exile||Series||Complete||26/26||10+||[info] [notes]|
|One of my favorites. Great setting awesome action, good story and excellent character design.|
|Legend of the Galactic Heroes||Series||Complete||110/110||S+||[info] [notes]|
|Absolutely amazing. Based on a series of books by Yoshiki Tanaka. Very long but very worth it. Central Anime has the only English subs since there has been no official effort to bring LoGH to the english-speaking market.|

|So the first few seasons of this were great and actually had some nice tension and setup etc. Unfortunately it should have been terminated with a happy ending after no more than 3 seasons. As it stands there is just too much and the plot goes away, hence why it is on hold and probably never to be finished. And now permanently abandoned.|

|Most OTT depiction of middle school emotional terrors evar.|

|At the time I watched this it was a good series and I enjoyed it. Not quite as high a rating as I might have given it then, but still very funny. The philosophy in it is ok, but I find that that is the least interesting part of the whole thing|

|After this nothing can ever be epic again.
Bit disappointing if you know that other endings were considered.|
|Visions of Escaflowne||Series||Complete||26/26||8||[info] [notes]|
|Good series, fun to watch, but since it is in the same genera (sorta) as TTGL it has to receive a lower rating. Story is not everyone's cup of tea.|
