Not going to comment much on Eureka Seven simply because I barely remember it and probably watched it at a bad time. I don't remember liking it all that much, that's all I can say. But, there was some good material in the middle section of the series.
A fellow Eva fan huh? That's great to see. I simply love the series and connected with it in a way I haven't done with much of any thing else, I felt as though I truly understood the characters by the end of it. I personally prefer End of Evangelion as the ending, though and I'll admit that I can't agree with a rating of 7 for it as I find it to be one of the best experiences I've had with anime. I'll never forget the Third Impact sequence Eva Unit 2's battle.
Rurouni Kenshin: Tsuiokuhen is a tour de force as well, though I think you may enjoy it a lot more if you watch the anime series or read the manga to truly appreciate how much the events of Tsuiokuhen changed Kenshin.
Otherwise, not much to say. I wouldn't personally give Gurren Lagann and Code Geass such high ratings, but I can see how they get high scores based on enjoyment alone.
While I enjoyed Steins;Gate for the most part throughout it's entirety I'll just say that the series does pick up as you go along. I can't really say much for fear of spoiling but I suggest giving it another go.
Plan to Watch
First of all, it's not on your list but since you are such a fan of Evangelion I highly suggest Revolutionary Girl Utena sometime down the road. Yes, it is shoujo but since you've seen Kimi ni Todoke and liked it (and the fact that Utena completely destroys the trappings of it's genre) I'll suggest it.
Black Lagoon, Great Teacher Onizuka, Nana, and Haruhi Suzumiya are other series I highly recommend. I also, of course, recommend Monster and Legend of the Galactic Heroes. But, as I'm sure you are aware, they both are time sinks and require maximum attention to get the most out of them. They are, however, entirely worth it as they are two of the great anime out there and I feel most people would agree with me.

First off, that's a huge list. We got 86,8% compatibility. Pretty good I'd say. I think we got similar understandings of good anime after a first look over your list. However I'm not into the older anime yet and I value enjoyment higher than the masterpiece qualities of a show for rating. That might change as I reach 200 completed.
Onto your list.
Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita - The only thing I watch as well. For the first episode it surprised me how spot on the social criticism and witty sentences were. I enjoyed that and hope the show can keep this up.
Aki-Sora - Can't go without some incest in anime. The sequel has more of the same but tries to add some substance, I think. I subbed this for a friends project so I watched it over and over resulting in me being annoyed by it.
Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai - I can agree on your tag to some extend however I felt that the good execution made it work out in the end.
Aria the Animation - I'm looking forward to this franchise sooo much.
Baccano! - The characters are presented so well with just this trainride and not much more happening. If this had 26 episodes... I enjoyed Miria and Isaac as well.
Bible Black - The one hentai you can't deny to have seen.
Black Lagoon - Fair score. Tag sums everything up. ;)
Boogiepop Phantom - As a fan of Baccano! and Durarara!! I'm quite interested in this.
Clannad: After Story - Powerful indeed but Nagisa stays the weakness of this show and the ending is discussable.
Cowboy Bebop - Why no rating? I was curious to see that one.
Durarara!! - I valued this higher just for the fun I had watching it. It has it flaws and the highschool kid focus again was a bit of a bad choice but the cast is just great as a whole.
Fate/Zero 2nd Season - Why did it have to end?! The animation alone makes me puke rainbows...on top the characters and story...
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - Harsh but reasonable explained opinion. I wont agree on that because this show had a continued flow of flawless story telling without one episode being skip worthy. The cast is pretty much the best thing that ever happened to the shounen genre.
Golden Boy - Halt right there. Golden Boy is rated lower than Aki-Sora?! Did we watch the same show? This is the epitome of how a good ecchi show is done.
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Cute girls going batshit crazy with a great overall story and well done story telling. Some scenes scare the shit it ouf you and then Kai comes around to round everything up. Well done.
Honey and Clover - My next josei to start.
Kara no Kyoukai 6: Boukyaku Rokuon - I agree on that tag. This episode felt out of place but looked gorgeous as always. The seventh one is right in place again.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes - It's long and old. Two things making me delay this every time I think about it. That's probably a mistake, I know. I will watch this eventually.
Lucky ☆ Star - It was funny but overall nothing happened. The special is ridiculous check it out.
Mars of Destruction - That's a high rating!
Nana - The most realistic anime I've come across so far. Cast, music and pace all fit perfectly. The ending might be a bummer since we lack closure but I can live with that and will read the manga eventually.
Spice and Wolf - God I enjoyed this soo much. Holo is a great lead and medieval things always fascinated me. A rare setting in anime it seems.
Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo - One of the few instances where time travel is done right. Teaches us not to mess with the things happening to us.
Yosuga no Sora - I somehow compare it with Aki-Sora and this was way better imo. The individual stories where surprisingly entertaining. Stays a mere standard ecchi nonetheless.
Chihayafuru - Pretty fascinating how this manages to make karuta look freaking awesome.
Guilty Crown - Drop it. He stays a wimp. Inori isn't enough to salvage the plot holes and lame main character.
Hellsing Ultimate - Alucard is a freaking beast. This show only gets crazier. Neat bloodfix. Twilight vampire kids can get lost.
Natsume Yuujinchou - If there is one thing you have to watch it's this. The first season is a great introduction into the world of Natsume. The second shines with the best standalone episodes you can get and the slow development of Natsume throughout shines in season 3. Honestly, I dont even have to start season 4 to give it a 10 already.
One Piece - Fishman island arc seems slow and dragging to be honest but as of now One Piece delivered again. It never fails to do so. Epicness comes around.
One Outs - How? Why? This kid has more prodigy vibe than the whole Death Note cast.
Plan to watch
Angel Beats! - Well executed but has some loose ends.
Canaan - Pretty standard action fix. Nothing bad.
Casshern Sins - The epitome of melancholy. The most depressing show I've seen. It's worth the experience.
Freezing - Has no ice.
Highschool of the Dead - Get's way too much hate. Fanservice is overboard in 2 of 12 episodes...for the rest it's a well done entertaining flick.
Kara no Kyoukai 7: Satsujin Kousatsu (Part 2) - Go ahead and finish you Kara no Kyoukai experience. This one comes close to movie 5 and erases the sixth one from your mind.
Katanagatari - Episodic and dialog heavy story of swords. Has well animated fight scenes and a ton of various characters. A great journey. Cheerio!
Voices of a Distant Star - The idea for this was good but I found it too short to captivate me.
Great list overall, some disagreements but that's fine. I highly recommend that you watch Natsume Yuujinchou above everything else. Feedback is appreciated, leave a comment if you like.

liking the profile pic, id like to know from which anime is it from
-Gintama - this is the most overrated anime ive seen, way longer than needed... it does have some funny moments i guess
-Jigoku Shoujo- i thought the artstyle was ok for its time, nothing too impressive though... season 2 is a bit better an it has a great ending but its still quite repetitive, havent seen the final season yet
-One Piece- i might give this a second try... if it ever ends
-Toradora- ill probably watch this next, i just hope that Kugimiya Ries voice doesnt annoy me, the only time ive like her was when she voiced Phantasos
-Angel Beats- yeah its overrated but its still a good anime, i actually liked Yui even though i usually dislike that type of character... anyways it had good animation, great soundtrack an memorable ending imo
-Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai- i didnt like this one that much, it was fine but most of the character were very annoying an the crying in the final ep was overdone
-Deadman Wonderland- Ganta was annoying but the rest of the characters were good
-Durarara!!- i thought this anime focused on the wrong characters and the plot wasnt that interesting
-Kemonozume- that animation took some time to get used to an that villain was very annoying, the rest of the caracters were interesting
-Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica- i agree its another overrated anime but its quite good, it has great animation, an intriguing plot, good action scenes an a memorable ending
-Mirai Nikki (TV)- yukiteru is one of the worst anime characters ive seen, the last part was retarded an it almost ruined Minene, my fav character from that anime... well overall it was fine i guess
-School Days- the art was low budget an the main characters were terrible but it had an engaging plot
-Spirited Away- i loved the characters an animation, its my 9th fav anime
-Tokyo Magnitude 8.0- i thought this one was quite unique, almost cried at that ending
-Elfen lied- i dont think its that bad, it has a good animation for its time and the soundtrack is impressive but the unnecessary nudity an some of its characters kinda ruined it
-Oruchuban Ebichu- Hamtaro on crack
Plan to Watch
-Cowboy Bebop- its not a masterpiece imo but among the ones that i know in this list, this one wold be the best
-Ergo Proxy- its very confusing but the characters are interesting an the animation is very nice
-Gintama'- this one doesnt have any plot progression an the "serious arcs" were boring
-Higashi no Eden- interesting characters an engaging plot, the movie sequels arent that good though
-Persona 4 The Animation- very repetitive first half, action scenes are quite weak an predictable ending
-Spice and Wolf- interesting characters an nice animation but the plot isnt that good, sequel is a bit better

There are 23 shows that we have in common.
Angel Beats!: I'm surprised that you only gave it an eight. I really loved Angel Beats, I think it struck just the right balance between humor and seriousness, it had an interesting concept, and the art was fantastic.
Code Geass: I really liked this one because of it's strategic atmosphere, but at the same time, it had a lot of flaws, especially r2.
Darker than Black: I disagree with your rating. The only reason I gave it a nine instead of a ten is because I thought it dragged on a bit near the end.
Death Note: Not much to say here. Fantastic show! We both seem to agree about that.
Fate/Stay Night: Seriously??? 6???? how? I really enjoyed this one. It had a great plot, interesting characters, good fight scenes, good animation, and excellent music. I'm not sure how a 6 is justified!
Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works: I can understand you decision with this one. The story was a mess and it was rushed.
Fate/Zero: I was excited when I heard this was being made! and with my favorite anime composer, Yuki Kajiura, writing the music no less. I wasn't disappointed either. The show was very well put together, connected to Fate/Stay Night nicely, and had excellent characters and character development. I rated it quite highly, but it seems there was something about it that didn't quite bring you all the way.
Fullmetal Alchemist: This was the first anime I ever watched. I still love it. It might be a 7 in your eyes, but to me, it will always be a ten for its excellent characters and plot.
Fullmetal Alchemist: the Conqueror of Shamballa: I was very disappointed with this one. I'm surprised you didn't vote lower! How could this be just as good as Angel Beats, Code Geass, or Fate/Zero?
Ga-Rei: Zero: Outside of a strange first episode, an excellent story. Still makes me cry. You've underrated it.
Higashi no Eden: It was a little disjointed at times, that's true.
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni: Yes, it can be quite confusing, but what's fun about it is that, if you really pay attention, you can begin to piece things together. Hardly a 6!
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai: This was beautiful, the show puts together every lose plot thread established in the first season and brings everything to a nice conclusion. Again, if you really pay attention, every stray, unanswered question left to us in the first season can be answered in this one. I recommend you watch both seasons again!
Mirai Nikki: I had read the manga too. It's a good thing they came out with a real show.
Mirai Nikki (TV): A very nice adaption of the manga. The show stayed quite true to the manga too.
Mouretsu Uchuu Kaizoku: Yes, the show is a little silly, but aren't all comedy animes? What's nice about this is that, unlike other comedy animes, the show takes itself seriously. It was well put together and featured fantastic art as well.
Steins; Gate: El Psy Congroo :)

I would rather not put tags on my list like that, there's no room. Just do it based on your opinions and how our scores compare please. Thanks.

Bakemonogatari - Agreed with your tags. A freakin' amazing anime.
Ga-Rei: Zero - Ah, that pocky scene. Same reason I found this anime. Thankfully, it has a lot more to offer then just yuri fanservice, be prepared.
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - If you enjoy this series, pick up the mangas. They do everything the series did and better.
Toradora! - Starts off average and develops into a really great romance/drama. Trust me, starting from episode 12 on it really blossoms.
Yuru Yuri S2 - More moeservice is fine with me.
Angel Beats! - We both gave it a 7. This anime had a lot of flaws but it's good sides were undeniable as well.
Another - Glad to see someone with a low score on this. This anime went from pretty good to just shock valued shit, and it's sad that it even gets a score above 8.00 on here.
Clannad - "This series just proves anything from Key sells" Um, no. Maybe your expectations were too high but that statement.. I don't even understand it. You haven't even seen anything else from Key. When people praise Clannad for being emotionally moving and what not, about 90% of the time they're referring to the second arc of After Story, which starts around episode 11. You only made it to the highschool arc. Give After Story a shot and see where it leads you, because believe me, no one praises a sob-story harem for nothing, and After Story deserves all of its praise.
Code Geass - A trainwreck. Started off strong with a lot of key elements then just threw them all out and gave us the worst cliffhanger of an end ever. (For R1, at least.) Why this gets scores like an 8 is beyond me. I just stopped caring after episode 18, which is where things stopped making sense.
Deadman Wonderland - The Elfen Lied of 2010, or something like that. I didn't find it to be above average like you did.
Death Note - Went from intense and godly to barely watchable. Unless it stopped at episode 25 I don't really see where all the 10's come from, glad there's someone else who may think the same.
Durarara!! - Agree 100% with your tags. The characters really made this show. Hell, one of them taught me a life lesson.
ef - a tale of memories - Not 10 worth imo, but still a beautifully tragic love story (at least one of them was.)
FLCL - I really need to rewatch this. I don't see where all the hype comes from.
Highschool of the Dead - Enjoyable watch but clouded up with a loose plot and fanservice. Your tag for Highschool DxD fits in well with this anime, too.
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica - I feel like I'm in the minority who felt the ending couldn't have been better, especially considering all the suffering the meguka went through. Anyways, my favorite anime, so I'm pretty bias towards a lot of things. Hoping for a sequel as well.
Mirai Nikki (TV) - I guess trainwrecks are entertaining. Welp. You love most of the characters while I hate pretty much all of them. (Akise and Minene barely being exceptions) I can see why someone may find them all likeable... no I can't.
Sono Hanabira - yuri hentai is always a good thing.
Spirited Away - My first Ghibi movie. We agree on the rating.
Yuru Yuri - Pretty much everything you said in your tags. This anime is hilarious and I'm bias towards it and I ain't even sorry.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - Picks up somewhere around episode 20. I forget where because I always found this anime to be a thrill ride. Give it a go, it's not ranked #2 here for no reason.
Clannad: After Story - You only got to episode 7.. no. After Story pretty much takes everything that Clannad lacked and kicks it up a notch and does it right. At least make it to episode 10 and if you really hate it drop it at 20. That's where all the praise comes from.
Plan to Watch:
Elfen Lied - Crappy shock value. Fanboys try and say "look past the gore and nudity and look at the real message" when that "message" isn't even presented right. "Humanity is cruel, humans are cruel, everyone is capable of love and hate, everyone is human despite what you see on the outside", nice messages to sugarcoat and overall terribly done anime.
Pandora Hearts - Skip the anime. Read the manga. Get to chapter 74. Sob.

Seems that you rate much lower than me. This is gonna be fun. Anyways:
Good job for not having a << On-Hold>> or a <<Drop>> list. I kinda tried that. And failed.
Anyways, here are some suggestions off your <<PTW>> (bolded ones I recommend highly)

First off, nice tags. They're almost as funny as mine.
Moving on, I can see Ed from Cowboy Bebop is annoying you. Don't worry. They try to keep him out of the series so nothing interferes with the general badassery of the characters. It's also nice to see someone who's enjoying Mushishi. It has to be one of the most relaxing anime I've ever seen. I especially love how naturalistic it is in portraying its spirits.
Going to your completed list I see you didn't fall in love with 5 Centimeters per Second though you seemed have an aversion toward the theme itself than the execution. I personally didn't mind the theme but I found myself wondering why Shinkai opted to tell everything to us when Voices and Place Promised mastered the art of show, not tell.
Speaking of flaws, I really enjoyed Angel Beats! myself in spit of some serious problems. Unfortunately said serious problems kept it down just enough for me. I guess people were expecting the plot to have some direction. It's kind of funny when you think about it though because Eden of the East had a similar problem. It meandered about in an episodic manner when the whole point of the series was started by a conspiracy theory. Yet Eden of the East doesn't get as much flak for its lack of direction as Angel Beats! does. Huh.
So these days I just try to avoid hype though I see that wasn't the case with Puella Magi Madoka Magica. I'd think you'd notice the amount of attention toward Bakemonogatari and Clannad as well but I guess not. And by the way, I detested Bakemonogatari for all of the wrong reasons. Mainly, the animation or lack thereof. How am I supposed to appreciate Hitagi's beauty or Nadeko's cuteness when I can't even see them half of the time they're supposed to be on screen?! This is blasphemy. This is madness!
Ahem. All 300 jokes aside, I see you've watched School Days and plan to watch Rumbling Hearts. Be prepared for School Days' rating to drop because Rumbling Hearts is pretty much everything School Days wishes it actually was. Likewise, you might notice a big difference in quality between Shuffle! and Mashiroiro Symphony. While the former has a much more ambitious setting, the latter treats its audience and characters with respect. Personally, I prefer a well-written story and Mashiroiro was just that. It was such a soothing experience that to this day it's the only fanservice harem anime I'm keen on promoting.
There are some other things in your PTW that don't sit too well with me but for the sake of time I'll rant about it only if you ask me. For Texhnolyze, just make sure you can keep your attention up really high and you're good.
And by the way, I wouldn't have dropped Railgun if there was a "scene" between Kuroko and Mikoto. Then again, the has anime voice miscasts and overused humor to the point where it became somewhat serious for the show. I'll stick with the manga.

Wow, our anime compatibility is high. 75.5 %
Angel Beats - I actually quite liked this anime. It had a good balance of drama and comedy. The downside was that it had too many characters (WTF everyone disappearing offscreen). Although I can see how the anime being rushed can degrade its score.
Another - I have to somewhat agree with the score. It wasn't too scary, and the mystery wasn't that good either. It was definitely interesting the first 7 or so episodes, but the rest of the show was pure black comedy. The ending was stupid too. The only reason it got an 8 for me was because of the first half.
Baccano! - I loved this show. The characters were all interesting and the unique storytelling kept me watching. Although, I actually watched the dub instead. It's America, I want to see them speak English.
Clannad - I actually dropped this one. It just felt so boring and slow-paced. It didn't help that I hated Nagisa. Tomoya was okay.
Code Geass - I actually liked this series. The mecha action was nice and there was strategy involved. However, I could see why people don't like this show since there were asspulls (lol Lelouch predicting Schnizel's entire conversation).
Death Note - The first half was really enjoyable but once Near and Mello came into the picture it jumped the shark.
Dragonball Z - C'mon, the absurdly long episodes were part of the charm! Who doesn't want to waste 5 minutes seeing Goku turn SSJ3!
Durara! - Someday, I will watch this.
Fate/Zero - Aww, I actually liked Fate/Zero. Kiritsugu was so badass if controversial and everyone else was cool too. I didn't see very many of the cliched wimpy characters that plague many an action anime.
FLCL - The plot did feel like being on crack. I thought that was part of the charm though.
Gosick - I dropped it because it was boring. There was very little mystery and more asspulls. It just seemed as if Victoria didn't even need to spend any effort at all.
Hidan no Aria - I loved Riko too, but it was admittedly too cliche for my tastes. And I hate tsunderes. HSS was the only thing that kept me watching.
Higurashi - DId you watch the second season? Because then everything makes sense.
K-on! - You must hate moe.
Nanoha - The first season deserved a 6 if only because of disappointing fight scenes, the second one was the best, the third I haven't watched. From what I heard it was love it or hate it.
Madoka - I loved this show. imo, the plot was really engaging. And why does everybody hate QB? He's awesome. Great villain.
Naruto - The first half was decent, then filler hell came and ruined it.
Neon Genesis Evangelion - This really was love it or hate it. It could be called overrated, but I liked the psychological stuff and dark atmosphere. Before, I only watched happy stuff (I didn't watch much stuff back then) so it was a nice break.
School Days - C'mon, the entire series was worth it to watch that guy die. And boy did it deliver.
Shakugan no Shana - The plot was pretty nonsensical so I can see why you gave that score. Shana was a complete Tsundere and Yuji was a wimp. In hindsight, the series was nothing special. If you hated this season don't watch the train wreck that is the rest of the series.
Shuffle! - I plan to watch this. Is it really that bad?
Steins;Gate - Okabe was awesome, the rest of the characters were all interesting, and I loved the plot. BTW, your tag left out SONOVABITCH.
Harahi Suzumiya - Aww, I liked this series. It was such a different take on slice of life and I loved Kyon. Endless Eight is a big killer though.
Naruto Shippuden - Almost everything about this series is crap. Agree with the score. Fillers are killers.
Nichijou - Is it really that bad? I've only watched one episode so I'm wondering if I should continue it.
You've watched a lot of stuff, and a good variety too. However, our tastes are almost completely different. So much for compatibility (albeit, I don't watch as much anime as most people do). You grade way harder than I do. From what I've seen, you really hate shonen and moe.
Darker than Black - Eh, I liked it. The protagonist is cool, the plot's interesting, and the fights are done really well. It seems it might work for you too.
Fullmetal Alchemist - THis is a must-watch. I'm surprised you didn't put it on your list.
Full Metal Panic - The protagonist is hilarious, and the mecha action is done really well. Fumoffu and the Second Raid are the best seasons. The first season had iffy animation.

We share... GOD!! 42 animes?! this is going to be a huge work... if i get to comment on all of them :)
Out of the 42 shared our overall scores diffen in 2.29, wich is a hughe gap. Still we have a compatibility of 61.2% wich is not that bad.
I do like the interactive stuff you have in your profile. And i thank to any divine stuuf you belive for you to have tags.
Let's get to business:
->Uchuu Kyoudai: I don't follow this one but i've heard a lot of good things about it. You are the first one i see to complain, but if it really is that slow pased, i'm glad i didn't even consider in watching this.
->Kokoro Konnect: Interresting premise, the first episode is really something. Still too soon to place a score. But it bumps me that this season is filled with "hish school" placed animes.
->Personal Rec: Try Hyouka (or Hyôka) is very well made.
->5 cm per seccond: I do understand why most people find hyperrealism so boring. Is hard accept that reality is not the fairy tail we all want it to be.
->Afro Samurai: An anime series, with samurais with weird afros, and the main character is a samurai... named Afro... Clever.
->Akira: Totally, i've heard the manga has no plot holes. But at least the animation was very well made.
->Angel Beats: Here is the problem with this series: It was suposed to be 32 episodes, but arround episode 6 or 7 it was decides to cut down the episodes to 12 (the 13 was an arrangement), if the series had as much episodes as origuinally planned, the character development and the drama would have been a lot better. Considering that, the studio made a very good job givving it an proper ending.
->Arakawa Under the Bridge: Ahh... the jokes may be kind of... stupid. Yeah. But is still a fun show. The seccond season is just lame. In there i hates
->Baccano!: Master piece. The most confusing plot i've ever seen. Yet very VERY entertraining.
->Black Lagoon: I'm not a fan of mindless action ->Dropped
->Blood (saga): I'm still wating for the last release of the saga. The i will decide wich score to give to the overall show.
->Chihayafuru: For me, this was the best show of it's season. Gladly, there will be a seccond season soon!!
->Clanad (series): Thank you! You placed in words what i'm triying to say since i watched the series.
->Code Geass: Is a must watch, still mecha, still high shcool, stil kind of scy fy... ahh... i'm still not so deep in the plot to write a proper opinion about it.
->Cowboy Bebop: You have to respect the classics. By far, one of the best shows i've ever seen.
->Darker than Black: Then the next time skip the third and go for the fourth episode. You wont regret. :) (also, skip the seccond season)
->Death Note: Huh? No tag? I'm guessing the 5 is becouse the seccond half onf the series.
->Durarara!!!: I'm so not going to arge about this show. I do understand is hard to get.
->Escaflowne: You say it's emo... and you gave Evangelion a 9....
->Full Metal Alchemist: I prefered the seccond series, but each person is free to choose their likes.
->K-ON: What?! a 7 and an 8?! Is just a bunch of girls drinking tea. Suposed to be a music anime, but it only have 2 or 3 tracks!!!
->Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai: The best harem ever made, You should try the manga since it's going to be a looong time before we get to see another season.
->Midori No Hibi: Every boys dream... wen we are young boys that is.
->Nazo No Kanojo: They had to cut it early, other wise it would have become a kind of hentai stuff.
->Neon Genesis Evangelion: Though i already tagged this before, but you prove my point: The pnly way to like this show is IF you relate to (any of) the characters, you made it. I didn't.
->RahXephon: In my PTW. Iv'e heard is farr better than evangelion.
->Sakamicho no Apollin: Is an eargasm. Just amazing.
->Slayers (1°, Next and Try): Those 3 where the best of the series. The seccond was just amazing.
->Spirited Away: Yup, you have to watch it again. I bet the score will rise.
Oh! Here it is:
->Hyouka: Yeah, the main character makes you remember a lot of other MC of previous series. But i want to encourage you to give it another try. It gets better and better... I'm serious.
->About all the other in your Dropped list, i can say most of them are here becouse you where dragged by Fan boys/girls of those shows, wich is always a bad way to start a series. Most of them, you can (if you feel to) give them another try, but this time watch them by your own perspective, not the idealizing view the fan's have about it. Why i say that? Becouse you are loosing a lot of good series just of the over hype you where givven beforehand.
All that i had to say, it's been said.
I can say you really enjoy watching anime, but some of your scores are really hard considering the overall development of the series.
Aaany way. It was a joy to comment your list.
If you have something to comment about what i say, feel free to post a reply in my profile, but don't do it here: Is disrespecfull to the other users.

-YuGiOh Zexal - It's at least better than 5D's :p
-YuruYuri 2 - We have different tastes, as you seem to not like moemoe shows where I love them. So I have to question why you're watching this.
-Baccano - One of the best anime EVER. The dub is especially fantastic. I wish you'd learn how to spell "immortals"
-BRS (TV) - God, so many issues with this one. I loved the OVA, it was interesting to me, but the TV series failed all expectations, over dramatized everything, and became tedious for me to watch...
-Clannad After Story - I won't bother commenting on the first series, but it kind of hurts to see someone rate AS so low because of the ending, where the rest of it was great. But, hell, if you didn't like it, watch the movie then.
-Cowboy Bebop - One of the greatest classics ever.
-Cowboy Bebop The Movie - But why the hell did you give the movie a 10 and the series a 9?!
-Death Note - From what I've heard, Near was meant to be hated, so he did his job.
-Elfen Lied - Really? Alright, I'll give i to you that it was a bit over the top, and I've heard the anime is way to condensed. Oh well.
-FMA Borotherhood - I've always liked this one better than the original.
-Sacred Star of Milos - You didn't even give it a score? I thought that if you took it away from the series, it wasn't half bad.
-Papakiki - I haven't seen Usagi Drop yet, but I'm inclined to disagree on this one. But, hey, I kind of wish everyone wouldn't compare one anime to another because they have similar stories, so that's just me.
-Sacred Blacksmith - I have to agree this one was off, and it ended rather abruptly. But I guess I enjoyed more than most... I tend to do that TT_TT
-Shuffle - Yeah... okay.
-The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (Both Seasons) - This is one of my most favorite series ever. I've also seen the Endless Eight a million times. I'm like that. You should watch the movie, it's done fantastically well. And if you find enjoyment out of these, you should read the novels, as a third season may not come anytime soon, and the anime only covers 4 novels and parts of 5 and 6 out of a current 10/11.
-Toradora - I don't understand what you were trying to say here, but this was a great series and you gave it a 10, so I guess I won't need to know.
-All the Yugiohs - I'm confused on what exactly you saw these as, 5D's was the worst... GX is my personal favorite, I realize not everyone's favorite, but hey.
-YuruYuri - One of my favorite moe anime. I have a thing for the genre, if people don't like them (K-On and such) then why dot hey watch them? I relaize you at least enjoyed YuruYuri, but I'm just sayin'
-Upotte - I won't make you finish this, but you were two episodes away from this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Fw0QfGzhXE
-Eden of the East - This was a very intriguing series for me, and the movies were pretty cool, too. I hope to see more, as the second movie was a bit open-ended, but yeah. You should definitely give this a go soon.
-Spice and Wolf - I hope you're prepared for long periods of people talking about the medieval economy. I liked it, and I've been buying the novels, too. I realize it's not everyone's cup of tea. If you don't like it, the series is still good for the relationship of the main characters, as their interactions are done very well. Also: Watch it dubbed!

We share two anime on our Favorites list, so that surely says something haha. Also I really like that Koyomi x Hitagi picture you have there.
Anyways here goes.
-ef - a tale of memories - I absolutely loved this series. Romance genre done right. Also I'm a huge fan of Shaft. Be sure to check out its sequel, melodies, afterwards. It's equally good, if not more emotionally stirring.
Completed (I'm just gonna run down your list by score):
-Fooly Cooly: There really isn't much more to be said about this. Gainax really knew what they were doing with this one. Sad that it only lasted for 6 episodes though.
-Clannad: Similarly with the above mentioned tale of memories, this was a very heartwarming, yet sad story. One of KyoAni's best works, along with AS. The character designs did bug me a bit, though (no pun intended).
-Keion: Yet another KyoAni production that I thoroughly enjoyed. Very solid all-around as a SoL, yet it was really season two that made the series.
-Toradora!: I'm a fan of J.C. Staff and Rie Kugimiya tsunderes, really. Right amount of humor, yet that ending seemed a bit off. Still my favorite RomCom though.
-PMMM: An interesting take on the Mahou Shoujo genre, that's for sure. But it worked. Yet another wonderful Shaft production. Interesting how they used a lot of German names, something I've actually been curious as to why they did that for a while now.
-Ouran High: I didn't think I would like it. Boy was I wrong. Can't say I've seen another reverse harem that I liked even nearly as much as that one.
-Bakemonogatari: This, in my opinion, is one of the best works of all time. Thus the reason for it being atop my Favorites list. The sharp dialogue, combined with the fascinating art techniques, one of the main reasons that I love Shaft so much. Also, that ED theme.
-BRS: Okay, I love supercell and all, and I also love Hana Kanazawa, but that series left much to be desired.
-OreImo: Ahh such witty humor, that show really made me look at myself, and it left me absolutely hysterical. Those final OVA episodes though, showing us a totally different side of Kuroneko...yet another wonderful Hanazawa character.
-Chobits: It didn't really work for me, to be honest. Something about the MC, I just couldn't get myself to like him.
-S&W: Ahh yes, economics. Solid romance between Horo and Kraft, just what I'd expect from a title from that genre.
-Haruhi S2: Endless Eight, why did I watch all of that...Definitely favored S1 over the 2009 version, thats for sure. Especially the whole space battle episode against those gamers.
-Yuru Yuri: At first, that title kinda turned me off. But no, it wasn't just some fanservice loli lesbian crap like I expected. haha. Season 2's looking quite promising.
-Lucky Star: That OP theme. Sad that Aya Hirano isn't really voicing characters now, I liked her acting/songs.

Sorry this took so long. I got caught up in a few things and then Sword Art Online light novel decided to suck me in. Good reading!
Hyouka - About to try and finish this one. I heard it gets better.
Onegai Teacher - An oldie but a goodie. Make sure you check out Onegai Twins if you like this one.
Zero no Tsukaima - One of the few anime that I have started AND finished in one day.
Another - Good thriller mystery. Could have done without everyone going mad though.
Astarotte no Omocha! - I thought this was really cute. I actually like the MC in a harem for once!
Baccano - Couldn't stand Isaac and Miria
Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu - Working on it. I have to quell my justice complex in order to watch. It's kinda unfair...
Bakemonogatari - Could have done without the endless dialogue and kanji flashes, but I know why you gave this a ten.
Boku no Pico - ...But you're a guy and you watched this!?
C³ - Dropped due to lack of plot and too much fan-service
Chobits - Love the art.
Cowboy Bebop - Classic
Dog Days - The second season just started airing. I love this cause it's an anime based off ninja warriors. Made me LOL so hard.
Dragon Crisis! - I'll finish this eventually
Elfen Lied - I liked it
FLCL - I didn't get the jokes...
Haiyore! Nyaruko-san - Lol yeah... we have totally differing tastes when it come to harems.
Howl's Moving Castle - Miyazaki, Hayao is an anime god.
Katanagatari - Enjoyed this one more due to reduced endless dialogue and no kanji flashes.
Naruto - You finished. I'm impressed. I dropped at like... episode three? lol
Neon Genesis Evangelion - Overrated
Rozen Maiden - LOL thank you for reminding me that I need to watch this one soon. It's so far down (alphabetically) on my PTW I keep forgetting it!
Sankarea - All the interruptions in story-line pissed me the hell off.
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu - too much fan-service... I really, really wanted to love this too. Ended up with a six for mixed feelings. Some of the episodes were epic.
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia - The ending was rushed but satisfying. Most entertaining first episode I've seen in a while.
Ah ha! So you watch one episode of the airing anime to see if you like them, then marathon the hell out of them once they are done airing. Not a bad use of your On Hold list!
Hagure Yuusha no Estetica - Couldn't get through the first episode of this one.
Natsuyuki Rendezvous is my fave of the season so far... and it isn't on your list.
I see no problems here.
Good thing I kept updating, the power flashed during the storm!
Ano-Hana - Good drama
Ghost Hunt - Make sure you watch it dubbed. It's WAY better
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni & Kai - Highly recced! When the anime resets, just think of it as an alternate time-line
Kaze no Stigma - I liked it.
Kuroshitsuji - Really good. Also read the manga
Pandora Hearts - See my Kuroshitsuji comment
Tsuritama - Highly recced. This one was my fun! spring anime.
Natsume Yuujinchou - Watch the first season before san and Zoko. LOOOOOOooooooooooooove this anime! It's my fave!
Your list is a little hard to read. I'd try another font color. Pink, white, or grey would be my suggestions.
I noticed you like a hell of a lot of harem and school life anime. That's all well and good, but there is way more out there. Here's a few things for you to try.
Rurouni Kenshin - Samurai/Historical anime at it's best! In my top twenty
Gintama - Really, really funny AFTER the first 15 episodes it starts to get better and better.
Chrno Crusade - Most epic ending. EVER!
Full Metal Panic! - Chock full of comedy and a pretty good plot also! In my top ten!
Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World - THE smartest anime I have ever seen. In my top ten!
Mugen no Ryvius - Dystopia 101
Sakamichi no Apollon - The best anime from the Spring season in my opinion. In my top ten
Gankutsuou - Most innovative art I have ever seen in an anime and based off a famous, really good, classical novel!

Oh, someone who knows how to rate properly (not that I agree with your scores!).
Accel World - Fat dude looks wonky. Sticks out more than CG in Macross Frontier lol
Gintama - One of the funniest anime I've seen yet. Hard to justify any long-running shounen nowadays being better than this.
Honey and Clover - Watching my favorite romance ever. Kudos if you end up liking it. Fuck all if you don't.
Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou - Do you know how excited I was when I learned Tomokazu Sugita was voicing one of the characters? I witness disappointment.
Durarara!! - Ah yes this show that is not bad, but rather painfully average throughout it's entire run. I hate Izaya with a passion of a thousand suns. Not even more Celty fanservice could have saved the show. Shame.
Howl's Moving Castle - I think this is Miyazaki's weakest attampt.
Kiki's Delivery Service - :( low boredom tolerance?
Kimi ni Todoke - Slow, uninteresting, meandering with no payout. This is not how a good shoujo is written.
Mirai Nikki - Evolves into a clusterfuck and I'm talking about the more tightly-written manga too. I think you might like Code Geass or Guilty Crown.
My Neighbor Totoro - Watch it. You've not even covered a single facet of Ghibli's material. Ghibli is more than just Miyazaki and sadly most people don't realize that.
Ouran High School Host Club - Actually pretty good. Enjoyed this quite a bit. Bishies with personality are fun.
Paprika - This movie is all about style. The substance is lacking compared to other Satoshi Kon films, but it's still all good.
Tokyo Godfathers - Same here, it's just a nice heartwarming romp of a Christmas film. For me, in terms of his overall work, I rank it second to Paranoia Agent.
Tsumiki no Ie - Poignant and sentimental. One of the best things I've seen, anime or not. Length doesn't matter. It tells a better story in 12 minutes than most anime in 26 episodes.
Elfen Lied - Only 3 more episodes >_>
Lovely Complex - Pretty sure this had less flowers and shit than Todoke, but whatever floats your boat.
Mermaid Forest - Got into this before I even know who Rumiko Takahashi was. Ehhhh.... It's funny when I think about it. Where did all her talent from the 80s go?
[Plan to Watch]
Cowboy Bebop - Watch it.
Katekyo Hitman Reborn - Burn it.
Monooke - This series is good! Make sure you watch the Bakeneko arc in the Ayakashi series first though.
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei - Hilarious. So OTT that you can't help but laugh.
SKET Dance - Poor man's Gintama.

What do you think you're piloting? Great Mazinger? Dangaioh? For Pete's sake, this isn't some robot cartoon whose main character is an autistic kid or some punk. - Kiichi Goto, Mobile Police Patlabor

No. I think sisgood got you covered. It's just that she hasn't editted her post yet.

Oh huh, you're right. Sorry, I didn't catch that. Carry on then.
