So the other thread went on into the oblivion that is nonexistence, so I thought I'd go ahead and create another thread.

So what's everyone watching? What's coming up in the coming months that we should look out for? Was anyone annoyed by Gundam 00 S2?

Discussion commence!

I'm trying to find time to catch up on some classics like Lupin III and Samurai Champloo

I finally watched Cowboy Bebop earlier this summer but haven't seen anythings since

I can't recommend Ichigo Mashimaro enough. I caught it two years ago and, risking the title of Loli-fan, I absolutely fucking love it.

The soundtrack, for those you who love J-pop, is the fucking royal jelly. Every song I've heard is the best I've ever heard.

S2 of 00 was disappointing but tolerable to me. I liked some of the gundam designs.

Haven't been into anime as much lately but I've started watching Canaan and Umineko no naku koro ni and both are suprisingly entertaining and have kept my entrance through the first 3 or so episodes. I would recommend both. Umineko is a murder mystery (think Clue.. in a mansion, people getting picked off) with a touch of fantasy/paranormal. Canaan reminds me of Noir a bit, young girl assassin but the overall plot escapes me at the moment.

Decided to rewatch Eureka 7 as I'm currently 'collecting' Gundam 00... very very slowly...

Waiting for the newer episodes of Hajime no Ippo to slowly come out as well.

I wish Bandai would make another non-Gundam show as good as Eureka 7 (or Geass). I fucking loved it. Gundam 00 is a total joke starting around the halfway point of season 2.

I'm paused around episode 12 of Gurren Lagann, trying to find other stuff to watch too...

I have Witchblade sitting on my external HD but for some reason I haven't watched past episode 3 or 4 or someshit.

Heh.

This is honestly, mostly old stuff, but I've really enjoyed these few series over the last few months with the g/f. Can't recommend these enough.

Dennou Coil
amazingly unique anime. great concept! The animation is just too good.

Fruits Basket
good, solid story. great characters, even if a little cute.

Lovely Complex
great love story. Lots of funny moments. Starts out slow, but really has
a unique way with the animation. Loved it.

Melancholy of Haruhi Suzuhima
amazingly good anime. great characters, awesome story.

Haibane Renmei
just finished this one, a little slow, doesn't do much, but man, its
really unique, again, superb characters. Some very 'omg' moments. Love the
emotional intensity in this one.

Irresponsible Captain Taylor... even though all the Japanese stuff says it's "Tylor", but whatever.

Sometimes old shows you've never seen before are just as good as newer shows you've seen several times.

Tylor was the first anime comedy I could really get into. It was nice to see something trying to be funny without being stupid school kids and something that had a very endearing cast. Cryburn and Andressen are win.

I'd totally recommend the first season of Haruhi. Season 2 is quite literally stuck in a loop.

No seriously, the gang is caught up in a time loop created by her and the past 5 episodes have been the same exact thing with minor alterations and no resolution. I have no idea who thought this would be a good idea for TV.

And yeah, Gundam 00 S2 was pretty weak compared to season 1 and it even got progressively worse.

Try Bounen no Xam'd, aka Xam'd: Lost Memories. It's made by the same folks that did Eureka 7, and it's got a similarly grand tone.

On the plus side, next episode is supposed to be the end of the loop, thank god.

It sucks. Avoid it for now.

Series I've enjoyed lately are Boccano!, Kekkaishi and Black Lagoon...sadly that's all I'm coming up with anime wise. I haven't seen any good ones lately.

Im downloading a movie right now called Nitaboh. Not sure what it's gonna be like but I like the story summary and told the soundtrack is beautiful

Also been watching Phantom - Requiem For The Phantom as well as the new version of Full Metal Alchemist. New FMA is quite the departure from the first series and I think I like it, while Phantom is pretty much another girls with guns in the same vein as Noir, but mixed with The Professional and a little Gungrave as well. I'm lovin' it.
