    Hi, Wisp! I go to animecons, too, but I get bored way too easily so I rarely go now. I'm a fan of cosplayers but I don't cosplay, it costs a lot of time, effort and not to mention money.

    I think we otakus really did come across Sailormoon, that anime being the hit anime series in the '90s together with its rival Dragonball Z. However, the first anime that really got me hooked was Yaiba, followed by Slam Dunk (which I've watched 7 times!). And then came Slayers which got me really addicted and which would become one of my fave animes of all time. And then came the Gundam series. I've caught a few episodes of Gundam X After War and I liked it immediately but the first one I've watched down to the last episode was Gundam Wing with Duo Maxwell as my crush (blush blush).

    I'm not into CLAMP, though I must admit that they did a fine job with Code Geass. Oh, and I commend them for Magic Knight Rayearth, too.

    Fushigi Yuugi has nice soundtracks. The concept of a modern girl transported to old China to serve as its priestess is good but I find the anime on the whole too cheesy.

    I only have one word for ranma 1/2: CRAZY!

    Record of Lodoss War reminds me of LOrd of the Rings...

    I hate Love HIna.. Well, I hate harem anime!!!

    I don't like Hitomi, either. (Escaflowne)

    Rurouni Kenshin-nice but it's not something I'd watch over and over again.

    LOL with you being pressured to watch Gravitation! I was tricked into it, too, bymy friends who are yaoi fans but fortunately, I wasn't able to watch the whole anime. It makes me want to barf.

    Big fan of Streetfighter when I was a kid but lost the interest for it while growing up.

    Princess Mononoke is probably my favorite animated film ever.
    Spirited Away was good, but not as good as Mononoke. Some trippy moments in that one, but a lot of anime has that certain unexplained quality about it that seems really weird, especially if you're not used to anime.
    Howl's Moving Castle was also good, probably even more trippy, but very magical. Howl was.. a complex character.
    Cowboy Bebop, probably my favorite anime series. Weirdness, sci-fi jazz/blues mafia stuff.. It's cool.
    Kodocha, funny and perky and weird. Lots of gags, some melodrama, but it's still good. Wish the rest of the series was being dubbed into English. Yes, I prefer dubs over subs.

    Skip Beat and Fruits Basket are AWESOME, Bakiryu. So, actually, is Ouran

    Hi, Wisp! I go to animecons, too, but I get bored way too easily so I rarely go now. I'm a fan of cosplayers but I don't cosplay, it costs a lot of time, effort and not to mention money.
    It is ALL of those things, but I'll tell you what - performing in contests and posing day after day and getting to act, sometimes, in character is SO worth it. My group is a bit ... well, we're very picky about our costumes, so it usually is h*ll. I guess that's why we love conventions so much, why we're not so bored of it? We work like hell the month before, and then - it all pays off!

    Go to a big convention. Those are so fun.

    It was TOTALLY Sailor Moon that hit me off - well, that, DBZ, and yep - then Gundam Wing (OH DUO <33)

    Fushigi Yuugi is cheesy, I'll give you that, but I started watching it in middle school by renting it from our anime rental place (I KNOW, RIGHT?)- it was one of the few complete series they had- that, and Rurouni Kenshin (I actually HAVE watched that more than one time through).

    I like Love Hina because it was a bonding experience for my brother and I. Not awkward at all. When you're raised around boys, you just have to learn to roll your eyes and laugh at the BOYS who laugh at the boobs.

    You know, yaoi just doesn't appeal to me. I loved (I forgot this one ) Revolutionary Girl Utena (a soft shoujo ai) because it had a plot, but Gravitation is just like one big soap opera. The characters were TOTALLY unappealing to me. Sad day.

    Streetfighter I love because I love the games. XD

    Why not try "Yamato Nadeshiko Henge" (aka The Wallflower)? It's so hilarious. I rememeber reading the manga late at night and laughing my head off. Haven't finished reading Fullmoon... Have you read "Shinshi Doumei Cross"? It's also by Arina Tanemura.

    I like "Lovely Complex" when it comes to shoujo anime.

    As for me, I'm currently addicted to Trinity Blood.

    I looove Ouran. It's just so sweeet. I have a long list of anime I've seen since last year but my favourites (that I've seen more than once) are;
    Hellsing (anime) and I've watched the first OVA twice
    The magic users club (both the OVA and anime) numerous times. It's just so sweet and funny
    Ouran (watched it again recently)

    I'm also a Miyazaki fan. Howl's Moving Castle is my favourite film.
    I want to watch Deathnote, I've seen both films but I want to finish reading it before I watch the anime .
    No doubt but there is none other beeste comparable to the mightie dragon in awsome power and majestie, and few so worthie of the diligent studies of wise men - Gildas Magnus, Ars Draconis, 1465

    My favorite anime series is "Monster". Killer storyline and characters! "Mushishi" comes in a close second. It is the most dreamy piece of art I've watched in a while. I felt like crying in almost every episode. Sadly most of the commercial series overshadow this fantastic ones...
