"Great" anime you've only seen once...

What are the "great" or "favorite" anime titles that you've only seen once (if possible, provide a reason)?

You know, the titles you'd put in your top five, top ten, top twenty... top whatever all time favorites list. I'm sure we've all rewatched a title because we enjoyed it... but there must be some that you'd consider great but have only seen once, right? I'm not alone in this, right?

I bring this up because I was at an impasse on what to watch this morning and was scrolling through all the titles I owned to see what I felt like... then I realized there were several I'd consider as a fave but never rewatched.

These are Cowboy Bebop, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, Berserk, and One Piece. I have no idea why I never rewatched CB or Berserk (the latter could be because it's such a gripping series and I'm afraid I'll end up marathoning it). For Kiminozo, I'm too much of a pussy to rewatch that one and for OP, I've read the manga and am currently reading the manga again as it comes out in Shounen Jump so in a loose sense, I'm rewatching it.
I'm not dumb, I just have a command of thoroughly useless information.

I'm currently watching Monster and I'd rate it in my top 5, but it's like a 74 episode series.
Out of the favorites that I've only watched once would probably be:
The Twelve Kingdoms
Gantz (that might be too much for you though)
Scrapped Princess
Record of Lodoss War OAV
FMA movie: Conqueror of Shamballa
Chrono Cross

I saw a VHS Guiver anime back in 91-92, it was pretty cool. Never seen it advertised again, but I can remember the best parts of the movie/episode.

I've been wanting to see Saber Marionette, based solely on the opening sequence. I saw a few episodes several years ago but they were in Japanese with no subtitles.

There was some anime titles that I've seen only once and are some of my favorites. the reason for me is becuase once I know like the whole story, there's like no point to see them again because if i watch it again I already know what will happen at the next few minutes before it's even there. Well....that's me.

Please explain why you consider Kimi ga Nozomu Eien great. Because that one had me wanting to strangle someone. D:

Full Metal Alchemist is a great series,but once you've seen it there's no point in watching it again,since you know all the secret and conspiracies

Excel Saga and Kino's Journey are the two that come to mind. I really enjoyed both and I want to get around to watching them again. But my problem is not enough time. I have trouble keeping up with my monthly anime viewing as it is without trying to re-watch old series.
When if doubt, stop and think... "What would Warney do?"

hmm.... Honey and Clover I guess. Not rewatching as I'm holding out some hope that the next time I'll see it will be on a licensed DVD.
