Despite it not showing up on my sig...I watched Voices of a Distant Star which was recommended on My AnimeList as Gunbuster-like. Very true and recommended at only 25 minutes for Gunbuster-lovers (which hopefully is everybody)
Also am up to ep 17 of Astro Fighter Sunred now that I have a machine that will play them. Love those short Cromartie/Detroit Metal City comedies.

Finished Speedgrapher last night on Netflix, I dug the show because it was very adult, and by that, I mean it wasn't porn or fanservicey, it was just made for an older audience
Also, I am one episode away from finally finishing True Mazinger, I watched eps 1-21 a year ago and I watched 22-25 last night. I was getting super-tired so I decided to finish the last episode when I am more awake. Great show.... for people like me who dig older looking stuff full of Go Nagai goodness
Realizes that I now have nothing to look forward to since Battlestar finished
During it's first release back in the day, I stopped watching Revolutionary Girl Utena around #13 'cause there was like some delay getting the rest out or something. So I thought I'd pick it up again.
Watched 3 on Sunday, then having the night to myself last night watched another SEVENTEEN! I liked it a lot, lot more this round. I fast forwarded through the "prog rock walk up the stairs" every time there was a duel. That's like almost 2 mins an episode!
So the first 13 eps were super solid. Then after that when the Black Rose showed up I was worrying it was getting into the Sailor Moon formula of "someone easily defeated turns evil every episode" but as soon as I started thinking it they mixed it up with the Black Rose not accepting one dude because he was actually too good which I thought was super sharp. So yeah, I'm super diggin' it and understand why a couple of you guys are fans.
Last night I watched the first 11 eps of Aquarion. Decent little show with great mech designs done by the guy who did macross.
I'm gonna finish it, but I can't see myself rewatching it. I'll sell off the dvds
I'm due for a Utena rewatch too. I'll probably get the remaster that TheRightStuf is putting out later this year and watch it then.
I saw the first episode or two of Aquarion a while ago and thought they were pretty cool. But it didn't look like a classic.
Last night, I started watching Gantz. I'm only 2 episodes in, but I'm not liking it so far. The designs are nice, but the animation is terrible. Is it supposed to be a comedy? Because the bad guy they're fighting so far is something out of a comedy. But the rest of the series is like an action series that's trying way too hard to be "hardcore". Both Elfen Lied and Black Lagoon were way better than this.
