With apologies to Slowhand for the late intro post,
I’m coming to back to Anime and Manga after a 10 year absence for various reasons. Now that Anime Network VOD is available, along with all of the online streaming services, I’m getting caught up with all the series and movies I’ve been missing.
BTW I’m DVD/Blu-Ray Region 1.
Favorites so far (alphabetic list, not by preference)
Ah! My Goddess 5 Episode OVA ("Collector’s Edition), Movie, Seasons 1-2
Allison and Lillia
Eden of the East, Series + Movies
Fruits Basket, Anime plus Manga (#1 favorite so far)
Full Metal Panic Seasons 1-3
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
Girls Bravo ((hey - there’s no accounting for taste, right?)
Kanokon (see Girls Bravo)
Polyphonica Season 1
Spice and Wolf Seasons 1-2 plus Manga and light novels
Strike Witches Season 1
I have pretty much everything in that list in DVD or Blu-Ray.
Elfen Lied (excellent but disturbing, like The Seventh Seal)
Anime I’d like to have
Polyphonica Season 2, “Polyphonica Crimson S”
Strike Witches Season 2 UNCENSORED (FUNimation’ online stream is censored)
So far all I’ve found are streaming videos online - subtitled, low quality. I’m not sure about the legality of viewing them, let alone downloading them. Besides, everything is in MKV containers/AVC video High@L5.1, which many players/authoring programs can’t handle.
