Anime Relations: Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, Black Lagoon, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai, Clannad: After Story, Toradora!, Bakemonogatari, Katanagatari
Recently the AoD Top 10 Anime Thread has been revived. With that, I ended up revising my top 10 favorite anime series a bit. And since my old Top 20 Anime Series List is a little over a year old now, I figured I'd do a quick update. Not much has changed in the list. I ended up expanding it to a Top 25 and with that nothing from the old list dropped off, although some shows dropped quite a number of places in the standings. Also, no big explanations of the each show this time around. Just a quick list. And I decided to just start at #1 this time instead of doing it countdown style. Anyway, here's the list:

1. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
2. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
3. Toradora!
4. Black Lagoon
5. Bakemonogatari
6. Haibane Renmei
7. Gurren Lagann
8. Azumanga Daioh
9. Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
10. Kimi ni Todoke
11. Shakugan no Shana
12. Kaleido Star
13. Genshiken
14. Baccano!
15. Cowboy Bebop
16. Nodame Cantabile
17. Outlaw Star
18. Moyashimon
19. Neon Genesis Evangelion
20. Elfen Lied
21. NANA
22. Zero no Tsukaima
23. Paranoia Agent
24. Sora no Woto
25. RIN ~Daughters of Mnemosyne~

This is also becoming something of a schedule of anime that I am showing to my girlfriend Dez. We have already watched Haruhi and Toradora! together and are currently watching Higurashi Kai. That means Black Lagoon is up next on the list. Although a friend is currently barrowing my DVD's of the series so we might just skip to Bakemonogatari if he doesn't get those back to me soon. We'll see. And it's actually our 4th month anniversary today so Happy Four Months Dez! I love you lots and lots! ^_^

Well, looks like this might be the list for a while. Only series so far that I think might have a really good chance to break into the list next year is probably Katanagatari. I'm really enjoying the series a lot. Clannad might make it up there too whenever I get around to watching the second season. Maybe I'll re-watch season 1 with Dez and then go into the second. There are also a crap ton of movies and OVA's that I'd like to watch with my girl (in no real order):

Voices of a Distant Star
The Place Promised in Our Early Days
Sweat Punch
5 Centimeters per Second
Eve no Jikan
Detroit Metal City
Pale Cocoon
Nekojiru Gekijou
Millennium Actress
Dragon Half
Aru Tabibito no Nikki
Tokyo Marble Chocolate
La Maison en Petits Cubes
Super Kuma-san
Spirited Away
Noiseman Sound Insect
Mizu no Kotoba
Jungle Emperor Leo: The Movie
Howl's Moving Castle
Amazing Nuts!
Dogs: Bullets & Carnage
Glassy Ocean
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
Dead Leaves
Girl Who Leapt Through Time
Tekkon Kinkreet
Tokyo Godfathers

We should just watch a bunch of those together so we can actually have an Anime Compatibility rating with each other. I'm thinking we need at least 15 things together, maybe. That was enough to give me a rating with Bulatao. We have 10 things in common and rated on our lists right now, but I guess that isn't enough.

Anyway, that's all for now. Laters!
