    What anime series should I get?

    kk so.. Only DVD series I have is Ful lmetal panic... Everything else I saw online...
    One piece: Around ep 100......... I think 150 but something like that
    naruto: finished
    Naruto shippuden: ep 100
    Bleach: around the 200's, AFTER NEL
    Lucky star: finished
    Hellsing: finished
    FF7 AC: finished (its just a movie but it counts...)
    Gundam: UNKNOWN....
    zoids: A few episodes
    rurouni kenshin: finished
    Code geass: finished
    Code geass R2: watched a few episodes, waiting for it to be out on DVD
    vampire knight: I watched about.. oohh 5-10 episodes.....
    Clannad: didnt see it at all, hurd it was good...
    Devil may cry: finished
    DBZ: Finished (looong time ago)
    DB: few duzen
    DB GT: coudnt finish the first ep......
    Elfen lied: a duzen episodes or so.. forgot.. I know I watched alot

    and many many MANY more... whichI cant remember ~.~;

    So.... What series should I buy from Rightstuf? I wanna start havin series..so yep ^^

    I like: comedy... Lucky star was REALLY good... But, I like it when there are these massive fights.. with all these powers...... With a bit of romance along the way... The character progresses little by little, getting stronger, ect.
    And the storyline has to ROCK.... NO anime's where you see em get stabbed and no blood comes out... thats just shit.... Imagen bleach, Mixed with lucky star, A bit of clannad (hurt it was a really romantic anime) anmd a few more...... thx ^^

    so: Comedy, Fighting, Sword fights AND fist.... , Sad, Funny, bloody at times... Progression throughout the story, Good storyline, Romance.

    So it sounds like you're looking for Action series, Shounen Adventure, and on the side, High School Slice of life comedies....

    For Action, try 'Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex': Action Sci-Fi Cyberpunk drama. A Major award winner in Japan, and easily one of the best Anime series to come out in the past decade... Collection sets for both seasons have been release, and is about to be re-released in a economy collection set for first season.

    Ghost in the Shell - Stand Alone Complex

    Another Action Adult drama is 'Gankutsuou' the Studio GONZO Sci-Fi remake of 'The Count of Monte Cristo' story. Another Major award winner, and easily the best Sci-Fi series ever produced by Studio GONZO. This original GENEON USA release has been rescued and re-released by FUNimation in a much more affordable thin-pack release...

    The Official Count of Monte Cristo: Gankutsuou Anime Site from FUNimation Productions

    Now 'Shounen Adventure' which is dominated by series based on the 'Shounen Jump' published manga series), besides the long running indeterminate length series (e.g. 'Bleach', 'Naruto' and 'One Piece'), the shorter length series have either incomplete stories, or commit the common sin of catching up with the Manga series that they were based on, and die of filler episodes. 'Air Gear' was the last 'shounen' series I've seen. it has a decent story, (but does end with a incomplete story)

    And be forewarned that 'Clannad' is based on a dating-sim console game. If you're into dating-sim stories, 'Clannad' is a good execution of one, but IMHO, 'Kanon' is still the best, and the most famous of the lot...

    I recommend Basilisk to everyone. It is a great anime in every aspect that one can imagine.

    For that matter, the original GENEON USA release of 'Gankutsuou' (which is what I own) is also available at a close out price...

    Another shounen series that I recently completed is 'KenIchi the Mightiest Disciple'. A Martial Arts/High School teenage romantic comedy series. With a cliche plot about cliche Martial Artist training filled with cliche characters, the series is surprisingly entertaining. The series is incomplete, with FUNimation having licensed and published what is essentially only the first half of the series. But FUNimation reports that the DVDs have been selling well, and no doubt they have the option for the 2nd half, so we might see another license announcement for the 2nd half at AX this coming weekend...
