Wow. People like their Scryed and Cowboy Bebop. At least Gundam's still ON the list.

Scryed went #1 for 6 months I think, but I've heard that it was knocked out of the top spot by Onegai Teacher.

Alright Inuyasha. People say it's popularity is fading but there it is, at a respectable and admirable #5.

Scryed starts out...average.

Then it gets really good, but the music always kicked ass.

Hmmm.

Guess I'll have to see what:

* Scryed
* Full Metal Panic!
* Fruit Basket
* Onegai Teacher
* X

are all about!

And, Inu Yashu moves up my list a bit to obtain.

Can Sakura Wars Action Picture be any good?


Wow, Belldandy is holding her own!
