Been watching Ouran High School Host Club, and yes it's goofy and over the top, but it's hilarious!  And it's got Vic Mignogna, Junpei from P3's VA, need I say more?

Now you're tempting me.

I finished off Martian Successor Nadesico a few days ago, now I've moved on to Cowboy Bebop, which I'm up to episode 8 on. Good show, but hard to watch multiple episodes in a single day.

I started watching Hell Girl and it reminds me so much of Persona 3 and 4 with the dark hour. Basically at midnight, you type into a computer who you want vengeance  on.  It always comes with a price though.  Anyway, it's kinda depressing at times and the episodes always leave you with this intense feeling of a mixture of sorrow and relief - can't really explain it.  It's not the best anime I've seen, but it really makes me think.  I'm really interested to see if I find out more about the Hell Girl, I have a feeling she doesn't like her job so much.

Reading m*****fucking Homestuck.

Is that a real Manga? Or the name of somekind of group or something?

Just finished rewatching Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, and I must say it's one helluva show. Sure, the story's a bit fantastical and preachy for a Gundam show, and the characters are...insane, and it misses a LOT of small, and occasionally big, details it's still very enjoyable to watch, especially for the action sequences, and the story was mostly compelling throughout.

You might want to check out Gundam X and Gundam 00 if you haven't yet.  They are pretty similar to Gundam Wing.

Gundam 00 - Already watched it and love it. Even rewatched a few episodes not too long ago. Still, glad to know someone else enjoyed it.

Gundam X is up next, but it may be a while before I get to it. I watched all 49 episodes of Gundam Wing in 5 days. I need a break, man.

I started watching this over Thanksgiving because I was bored and heard it mentioned a couple of times from friends. It was a great guilty pleasure series, but I only watched the first half of the first season or so. K-ON! falls into the same boat for me - cutesy guilty pleasure anime fun.

Watching Welcome to the N-H-K, I recommend this one fully. I'm only half way through it, but it's comical and actually realistic in this odd way.  I can't explain it, but this ranks of one of my top favs so far.

But at least the characters in Ouran have personality? :P Sorry, I'm a K-ON hater.

Haven't really watched any anime recently, but I did finish Bakemonogatari the other night. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Then I highly recommend Katanagatari.

Oh really? I've never heard of it, but I just looked it up and doesn't really seem all that similar.

I should continue with that one someday. I felt it was too weird at first, but who knows, it might get better.

If you like the anime,  you might want to check out the manga. It goes way more in dept with the characters then the anime. Fair warning though, alot of the chapters are really depressing. The anime is way lighter in feel then the manga.
