samurai jack, its not quite anime but it has so many elelments of anime in it. beautifuly made but not finished.
i have watched a few epidoes of Baccano! and i think its a good series, its like "DRR" mixed with cowboy bebop set in a different time.
im not sure how popular negima once was or is but i have watched most of the series (i sill have to watch the last episode but i have not been in the mood for it so its on hold for now)
i really just wish that i could have been around for when all the series i liked where popular, i would have made so many friends...
but kurohime i have a few volumes of the magna and its a good funny series that does not take away from the story with the humor.
the one series i think deserves allot of attention is the .hack sign, with a beautiful musical score and artwork it is a very underrated series.
