My GF and I like Fruits Basket a lot. Just the other day we started discussing how "poly" it seemed. The anime is only 13 episodes long, while the manga is much, much longer and is still being added to, I think. I've only seen the series, but based on those episodes, it's a pretty good example of balancing multiple friendships/relationships (and working on understanding yourself and others). I was certainly cheering the V relationship they refused to resolve in the classic romantic comedy love triangle ways.

My first anime was Record of Lodoss War, followed by Ninja Scroll. That was a lifetime ago it seems.

Recently I sat down and watched Afro Samurai and was very pleasantly surprised.

Next up is Samurai 7. I've head it's good, but haven't had a chance to sit down and really watch it.

Cool.

If you watch it subbed I think there are over 400 episodes and dubbed is up to 200 now.
Ok. Kind of like Bleach; I've watched pretty much all of it, (haven't seen the last episode or 2, I'll get to it soon); the first 200 can be found dubbed, the rest are subbed.

Ok. I'm finishing off Rozen Maiden. It is pretty silly, I admit, but I kinda got hooked. Once I'm done that, I'll have to decide what to watch next.

I have yet to see any of those, laugh :-). I think I've heard good things of Lodoss and Samurai 7 though.. one of these days :-)

I watched Elfen Lied recently. The opening song just stuck in my head so long, laugh :-). It was awesome but just so sad sometimes.

I love Studio Gibli for sure. I saw part or all of the first episode of Fullmetal Alchemist. Was ok but I wasn't really feeling it. Right now, I'm watching Ergo Proxy, which I think has some similarities to Elfen Lied, minus most of the sexual interactions which I sorely miss :-/.

If you like My Bride is a Mermaid, you should try Rosario Vampire. It sounds like the same cast and has the sense of humor. It does include a little more T&A

Gamerboy likes the more depressing, but amazingly well done kind. Gunslinger Girl, Noir and WitchBlade.
I like the more upbeat colorful ones. Saber Marionette J, (I haven't finished this one yet, I love the semi poly arrangement), Kiddy Grade, BubbleGum Crisis, (the newer version) and Rune Soldier, (which reminds me of D&D).
Right now we are watch Needless, which is ridiculous and amusing.
A guy in an anime chat site recommended I take a look at Witchblade, so I started watching it. Just finished episode 15 and glad I took him up on his recommendation :-). Incidentally, do you (or anyone else) know where I can locate the song that's starts just as Reina and Shiori prepare to do battle with some Xcons? It's about 20 minutes and 20 seconds into episode 4 (may be in others as well, I just know it's in that spot), which can be seen on funimation's official channel here:

I particularly liked the siren like voices near the end of it...

Gurren Lagann is the only one that I have watched all the way through, but it remains my favorite television show of all that I've watched.

Never seen that one, but I read the beginning of the story on wikipedia, looks interesting; may see it later :-)
