You are evil Galeros
The only series I can actually watch that goes over the 50+ rule is Yu Yu Hakusho because lolnostalgia and it so far matching up to my remembrance of it. Even if it did take a while to hit it's stride.
I remember starting Yu Yu Hakusho...
I think I left towards the first tournament arc or something.
Oh it also gets points in my book for having a fairly good dub. Granted I mostly went with the dub this time around because I don't like the text the DV Ds used for the subtitles.
I think the only series that I've seen that went above 26 episodes was Cardcaptor Sakura.
Not gonna argue there.
I'm watching Weiss Kreuz, but no one else has seen it here...
I'm still working my way through Hokuto No Ken.
Like many, I finished Madoka last week. I didn't anticipate that ending. It's been a pretty good show on the whole, and while it might not have brought anything new to the table as such, it certainly took old things and displayed them in new ways.

If Rachel is in the dark and trying to find out where Jimmy went for the entire run of Detective Conan, I can't continue. I keep thinking I want to see more, but I don't. I want to see the two to six hour film/film trilogy adaptation.
I respect the drama that's it's trying to explore here, but it's too up front for the super-long form. If the story is going to keep going for as long as it makes money, the plot arc needs to either change at a good pace or back off to the background. This appears to be on pause and in your face.
For the ongoing series format I'd want to either bring Rachel in in the secret (why is her knowing any more dangerous than Dr. Agasa? other than creating dramatic irony that is) or let her be satisfied with Jimmy telling her, "look, I saw too much, I'm on the run and under cover, I'll be back when it's safe." There's still room for tension in there, it's just not so direct.
I can't keep going when it's just going to tease a bigger story without actually telling it.

SLANDER AND LIES. But It's been a while since I watched any.
MY college's anime club did Yaoi night a while back and whatched a few episodes. Technically not Yaoi, but it's chock full of Bishees.

Second disc of Detective Conan has the equilibrium I was wanting. Now I can enjoy the individual episodes.
Black cat I started much later in the series and then went back to a little before Kisa...Now I'm rereading the whole thing. I'm at machi's story now—almost to the scene where Yuki breaks the chalk. my favorite!
I got all sidetracked by Alton Brown's book ''Feasting On Asphalt". I'm stopped at Tohru and Kyo having lunch with Shishou.
oh i like that part too...AHH i like all of it!
also it's bad for me. I've started answering Hai! again, and I have not done that since highschool.
I watched the first episode of The Tatami Galaxy yesterday. I really like the way it looks.
Edit to add: I think I am on about episode 6 or so. Sometimes it makes me sad but I still like the way it looks. And I like that the repetition has variation.

Well, I am looking up on episodes of Mahoromatic.
I'll definitely finish it once I get a new OS.
Thread revival...? Can I do this or are cobbies doomed to forever not discuss anime and manga again.
The only series I really like that cobbies might be interested in are Fullmetal Alchemist, One Piece, and Silver Spoon. The latter is a slice of life manga by the author of FMA about a boy who goes to an agricultural high school. FMA has been discussed earlier, although I lean towards the manga and the second anime.
As for One Piece, despite the fact that it's shonen and absurdly long (660-something manga chapters at the moment, and at best only 2/3s done with the series), it's a very humorous series about a guy who wants to be the Pirate King, with some discussion of ambitions and racial equality thrown in there. There's some Arc Fatigue, but it's amazing how everything ties together if you stick it through. The only issue is that despite the fact that's it's the next DBZ (or better) in Japan, the 4kids dub ruined marketability in the west; Funimation has dubbed up to the G8 arc, which is the big filler arc after Skypeia. They have subs starting up ~100 episodes later, but by the time you get through all the episodes, they should have dubbed episodes up to Water 7.
Ahem. I've never seen Cowboy Bebop, Neon Genesis Evangelion, or Madoka Magica. I plan to fix this over the summer.

I got into a school-gate argument the other day while out shopping. A mother was saying she was not going to let her 10-year old lad watch the Spirited Away DVD somebody gave him as a birthday prezzie because nothing good comes out of Japanese animation.
Um. <shuffles feet> I genteelly blew up whilst butting in. What's childhood without being fascinated by the weird and scary? Heck: I'd had Watership Down read to me before I was 10! And watched it soon after. Anybody going to tell me Spirited Away is more HONF filled?

I should've been in this thread a long time ago. Not gonna go into a long spiel about likes/dislikes; you should be able to get a good sense of the former from my page. Right now, I'm much more into manga than anime, mainly because I don't have (or, honestly, make) the time to sit down and watch anything. Reading Mahou Sensei Negima!, The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service, Dance in the Vampire Bund, and Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei, and waiting for the final(?) volume of the Evangelion manga to surface.
Mahou Sensei Negima! ends in a very unsatisfying note, just a head up.
To be honest, there are not a lot of manga that I admit to liking, except these:

I really liked the manga of Fullmetal, a lot more than the original anime.
If you liked FMA, then you will like Silver Spoon as well.

How well does it match the trope?
