As you can see from my list I am watching quite a few animes at the moment. But maybe a lot of them should be "on hold" because I haven't got all the ep's.
I am really enjoying "Witchblade" and also Wataru (recommend the OAVs because the TV series are a bit repetitive). I really love Gonzo stuff and I can't wait to buy Shangri-La^^

Currently watching a few things:
~I'm re-watching Sailor Moon R in Japanese and I have to say, I like it more in Japanese. There is something almost charming about the silliness of Usagi's voice and actions. That said, I still prefer manga Usagi. :P
~ Motto! Ojamajo Doremi - I'm a big fan of maho shoujo and this anime is actually pretty good. There are some things that bother me from time to time (certain gender binaries), but it is very charming and has a lot of heart. I like how the show focuses on everyday mundane relationships and how these are important. I also like how even the "bad" characters get a sympathetic backstory. Recommend to anyone into maho shoujo. :)
~ Toradora - I was recommended this one and so far I am enjoying it. I like how the characters are more than meets the eye and their characteristics seem to be the result of stuff that has happened to them, rather than just being the tsundere for the sake of being a tsundere or being ms.sunshine for the sake of the appeal of those happy go-lucky characters. I really like the main male lead. I think out of all the characters, he is the one that smashes through stereotypes most (the girls still have a ways to go, but perhaps the show will resolve that before it finishes). Him cooking, cleaning, and sowing stand out the most, but I think what makes him great is that he's a well rounded character. He has his selfish moments, but he also is a very kind guy. Sometimes too kind even. There were a few moments I wish he would have reacted more angrily. Still, like I said, he breaks down stereotypes fairly well and I enjoy him for that reason. :)
Also I recently finished watching Kannagi. It's ok. It had it's funny moments, but ultimately it is ruined by trying to appeal to the otaku crowd with too much silly fan service. Also, I did not like how Nagi basically quit her job because Jin was jealous. So much double standard bull shit right there. Oh and the ending, I did not like how much saving he did. She was basically moping around (avoiding spoilers here) and he went on his white horse and told her, that it's ok and he believes she is who she is. Not cool show, not cool. A goddess needing to be saved by a teenaged boy? No thank you.

I noticed all the episodes of Hime-chan no Ribbon have finally been uploaded, so I'm watching that now. I decided to rewatch the first 15 episodes too because it's been so long. It's just as cute and charming as I remember and Hime and Daichi are quickly becoming one of my favourite anime couples. I wish more couples were done like them. Both are so mischievous and spunky, yet both are also very sensitive. I'm so happy I tried looking if the episodes were back up. I can't want to marathon all 61 episodes in a matter of days. xD
I''ve also been watching One Piece on and off again. It's probably going to be off now that I'm obsessed with Hime-chan. I just made it to the end of Thriller Bark recently. I do like the anime quite a bit, but I really hate how dragged out it is compared to the manga. I'd prefer more filler than being forced to watch as the anime does 10 minutes of Nami/Ussop/Chopper running around/away whereas in the manga that was just a few panels. ;__; The next arc looks even slower too...
