I have to say my favorite series so far is the gundam series. The fighting with big mecha is pretty slick, imho. There are a few other series I like that have mecha, such as Full Metal Panic and Eureka Seven. Does anyone else like these types of anime? if so or if not, post your favs, and tell us why...

Hmmm...it's really hard for me to pinpoint just ONE favourite anime series. I've watched alot, and I typically download new fansubbed anime. Rarely do I ever watch an anime dubbed, as most anime fans usually prefer, so I don't usually favor the ones that are mainstreamed in North America. Mostly because I've already watched and enjoyed them the previous year or two ago. I can say that recently I thoroughly enjoyed the sequel to Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (When the Cicadas Cry), which is named the same with the addition of "Kai" (Answer) at the end. It's a really unique suspense/thriller/detective type anime with a dash of comedy. Not your average storyline... comparatively to movies, it's something like The Butterfly Effect, all throughout the 2 seasons. The first season had some elements of horror in it, whereas the second season was a bit more subdued, so if you can handle a bit of psychotic behavior with bloody goriness, then I'd highly recommend watching Higurashi.

I am a fan of watching fansubs, and don't really care for the dubbed versions. I haven't checked out Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, I might do that. Sounds kind of interesting.

Bleach I love this anime very much, their style is totally different from other sword-slashing anime. If you have seen Samurai X, it is more like it but the twist is their katana transforms into a powerful weapon. Sometimes i imagine myself wearing a katana, and shouts "Bankai!", and suddenly the katana will transform into a powerful weapon. And thats all because of this anime.

I am a fan of both of those anime. Although the current eps of Bleach are starting to drag along kind of like what happens in DBZ and Naruto. =\

Oh Shiet! GUNDAM!! I love the gundam series. Having one of those is pretty sicken. That advance technology, big mecha figthting one another, you have to say that is pretty intense. My favorite gundam series is the Gundam seed and Gundam seed destiny!!! I even have the game!! I think that should make another season or at leas t an ova not a remake

I didnt watch too much (but i will more and more ;-D) anime. But i like all of them. It depends on my mood what kind of anime i like more. One of my favourites is Chrno Crusade. It has a deep meaning which take my mind, but it has lots of funny situation. I just love its story and how they made it out. And the ending... Man. Just one word. Wonderful. If i wanna just entertain i watch GTO or Onegai Teacher. They are really funny and made me laugh for long long minutes. Maybe i can say i like these three the best. But i like Rozen Maiden, Scrapped Princess, Tenjou Tenge. OMG and much more too :-DD

My favorite Anime series would have to be Bleach. It's still an on-going series but the whole concept of the Zanpakuto having different powers and the different levels one can achieve is mind-blowing. My favorite character in Bleach is Kuchiki Byakuya because he is calm,cool and has long hair.His Bankai is something to be awed about as well. I never really liked the Gundam series but i cant say im not a fan of Machines. I liked Ninja Robots and Yamato Takeru.
