9.00 (very good) This series is awesome! It's like an American anime! xD I love how it's based on Asian concepts, and the artwork is great. (Not to mention the cool costumes and how real martial-arts styles were the basis for the elemental fighting styles.) It's definitely very well-thought-out, and the plot is engaging and funny. I've seen most of the episodes, and I'm hoping to watch all of them sooner or later.

9.50 (excellent) Definitely one of my favorite Hayao Miyazaki movies. I personally thought it was better than "Whisper of the Heart," even though it's supposed to be the sequel.

Bleach

9.00 (very good) The whole basis of Bleach is so unique, who can't get swept up by it? Kubo's art is amazing, and his great fashion sense and taste in music don't hurt, either. The world of Bleach is extremely well-developed, from the Soul Society to the zanpaku-tos to Hueco Mundo, and everything in between. The anime art's a bit iffy sometimes, but it's an awesome series overall.

Death Note

8.50 (very good) Obata's artwork is stunningly detailed and realistic, and it contributes to the eerie feeling that "Death Note" could happen in real life. While most shonen manga is all fighting and violence, Death Note actually makes you think. It's also interesting because the traditional moral roles are flip-flopped. The law is the bad guy while Kira is the protagonist. It really makes you reconsider what is "right." Sadly, I'm only halfway through the anime. I got bored since I read the manga first. -.-'

Fruits Basket

8.00 (good) The fact that it's based on the Chinese Zodiac really caught my eye. Even though the cast is fairly large, every character is developed over the course of the manga, and there are some lovely scenes that are nothing short of unforgettable. The anime was very sweet, and Ritsuko Okazaki's music is beautiful.

9.00 (very good) ICHIGO GYUNYU! ICHIGO GYUNYU! This series is one of the under-appreciated gems of the world, without a doubt. All the little allusions and references are a lot of fun to pick out, and I love how I can just kick back with an episode and laugh myself silly. (Maybe it's just me, but the anime artwork seems to be better than the manga's. 0.o) I fully intend to catch up on the series, though I'm only through about a third of the anime so far.

Hetalia: Axis Powers

10.00 (excellent) One of the few series I'm actually caught up on. Hetalia is frickin' awesome~! The East Asian characters have officially awakened my somewhat dormant Asian pride. I especially like the Japan x Taiwan pairing because they're so cute together!

Howl's Moving Castle

9.00 (very good) Another one of my favorite Hayao Miyazaki movies. The book was already enjoyable, but the movie made it even better. The quality artwork and great English dub make it one of those movies that never gets old.

Kiki's Delivery Service

8.00 (good) This is an adorable movie! =) It has such a sense of innocence and charm, and is always fun to watch.

9.00 (very good) I'm fond of the manga, and the anime was great! I like the manga-ka's style, and the overall vibe of the series is very cute and funky. =) Kazehaya and Sawako are seriously the most adorable idiot couple ever. xD

Magic Knight Rayearth

7.75 (good) An oldie but goodie. I've read the whole manga, but I'm only halfway through the anime. (I'm interested to see how the storyline differs between the two.) CLAMP's old-school style is in full force here!

Man of Many Faces

Seen: first

Last Updated: Oct 14, 2009

10.00 (excellent) It may be super-short, but I love this little series to death! Akira and Utako are absolutely adorable, and the art is gorgeous as always. The story's thoughts on love were very insightful and thought-provoking to me, and I get a little twinge of nostalgia when I see Akira in X/1999, not to mention his cameo in Tsubasa!

My Neighbor Totoro

Last Updated: Oct 14, 2009

8.75 (very good) Heh, I love the part where Totoro and the girls make the tree grow. The movie is on par with "Kiki's Delivery Service" in terms of cuteness and innocence, and the Cat Bus is awesome. =^-^=

Naruto

Last Updated: Oct 14, 2009

10.00 (excellent) Funnily enough, I used to think this series was totally weird. (Gaara and his missing eyebrows was what did it.) But when I actually sat down to watch it, it grabbed my attention and never let go. I love how the lands and villages are based on natural themes, and the shinobi system Kishimoto sets up totally fits my idealistic imagination. xD The original Naruto is nothing short of epic, though Shippuden feels plotless right about now. Mugen Tsukuyomi = ridiculous. X_X

8.50 (very good) xDDDDDD What can I say? I thought Studio Bones did an amazing job with the anime, and the manga is as side-splitting as it gets. (The panels are always so busy...@_@) It's light-hearted and a ton of fun to read or watch.

8.00 (good) I love the artwork in the manga, though I can't say as much for the anime. =_= I couldn't stand the redesigns they did on the majority of the Leafe Knights, especially poor, poor Kei. Although the voices were fine, the plot got a little convoluted in some parts, and ultimately felt a bit rushed. The manga gets an 8, but the anime gets a 4 from me.

Romeo x Juliet

Seen: partially

Last Updated: Oct 14, 2009

8.50 (very good) This anime is awesomy-awesome! It's far more interesting than the original play, that's for sure. I find it funny that while Juliet's kicking butt as Odin, Romeo's a total pansy. xD Gonzo's art is top-notch, and the opening song is beautiful. I'm halfway through the series, but I'm definitely going to finish it. (Besides which, Tybalt is so cool!!!)

Tokyo Mew Mew

Last Updated: May 31, 2010

8.50 (very good) The first manga I ever read! Mia Ikumi's art style really influenced my early perceptions of what manga should look like, and a lot of my old drawings drew heavily from the aesthetic of this series. I absolutely detest the 4Kids dub of the anime, and am sincerely hoping the original Japanese version will be much better. It seems alright so far, but I know there are some parts later on that I won't like.
