Pacing is a good way to describe what makes him so special. Well, not many animes are able to capture the beauty of their motionless originals anyway although I actually prefer the Hajime no Ippo anime to the manga. The music really helps a lot and it's probably not surprising that the best anime also have the best soundtracks.

I haven't watched anime in nearly a year, but here are my favorites:

Rounin Kenshin - Liked all the episodes up to 60... then it just felt like 30 fillers.

Fullmetal Alchemist - Best. anime. ever. At least to me it had everything I wanted, though I admit it did start to drag a little towards the middle.

Naruto - I liked most of the episodes, but out of the 100 I watched about 30 I could have done without.

Hunter X Hunter - Loved the anime and the Spider Arc, then I lost interest during Greed Island.

If you ever rewatch ippo, it's important not to watch too closely. The first season doesn't age as well as it does in my memory.

I watched and liked The Irresponsible Captain Tyler not too long ago. Pretty good too, one of the few animes I've ever been able to sit through without much action.

Wow it seems like a lot of people like Bleach and I haven't even seen it/heard of it before. I will have to check that out! Koi Kaze, Noir and My-HiME sound like some that I'd be into also. Sweetness

The shows I'm watching at the moment are:

Yakitate Japan!
Monster
Ghost in the Shell - 2nd Gig
Eureka Seven
Basilisk

Still watching Naruto, but not enjoying it as much as before.

I've never seen the anime Bleach but the first volume or so of the manga weren't great and I never got with the program.

keep reading, heh. The art in the few volume was really sloppy compared to the later ones and the story really really expands. Follows the same old Shonen Jump formula though. Hero starts with infinite potential. Trains, learns from mistakes, gets ridiculously strong, lotsa fighting and dragged out encounters, etc. . Narutards...i mean, naruto fans will feel right at home.

Exactly the direction I felt it was taking

We knows what we likes.

Very easy to enjoy. I love how similiar they are in some aspects (bleach and naruto that is)... Both heros have the orange/yellow spikey hair and american look, both have the random animals/stuffed or not for humor etc... anyway i'll try not to spoil, but they have quite a few similarities.

PlanetES and Infinite Ryvius are two excellent anime series set in outer space. Fairly deep character interaction, good storyline and unpredictable. You could say they deal with humanity: PlanetES centers around the concept of hope and dreams whereas Infinite Ryvius explores the human nature by creating a small microcosm of all kinds of personalities and various elements of human tragedy: hubris, love, envy, ambition, etc. Both series are very pleasant to watch and leave a lasting impression.

Also very classy but not mentioned often: Gungrave is a story about mafia, revenge, badass action, ambition that transcends friendship, dedication that transcends love, and friendship that might transcend them all in the end. Really good when you're in the right right mood although they should have left out the supernatural parts.

YES! Inital D! That show is so great. I have discs 10 and 11 coming from Netflix tomorrow, having rejoined yesterday for the summer!

Oh, whoops - description:
It's about this guy (around 18 or 19, I think) named Takumi - or "Tak" for short (Tak? Tach? Tachometer? ) who has been using his dad's old Toyota Corolla Trueno 8-6 to deliver tofu across the mountains since he was in middle school, and his dad is the (retired) best street racer in the land, so Tak is an awesome driver, and he beats all kinds of cars that are technically superior (such as a Nissan Skyline ).

My favorite part ever was during the Duct Tape Deathmatch (both racers have their right hands duct-taped to the wheel) when Shingo tapped Tak's car just as he was going into a drift, so he should've spun out, but instead Tak turned the wheel the other way around, shifted into reverse, and cranked his car all the freakin' way around. I know it's a damn animation, but it's so cool! I also like the little ding-ding sound it makes when Tak is racing.

IIRC, the sound is the 55mph marker that old Japanese cars have.

I'd have to say that Battle Programmer Shirase (BPS) is probably one of my alltime favourites "DOGGY STYLE!, IN PUBLIC?" heh...

Uninhabited Planet Survive had me intrigued for a bit (I watched the first four episodes) and seemed pretty nifty.

Although it's not a series per se, Macross Zero was snappy and kept me watching.

Naruto is childish but was entertaining when I watched it.

I looked at my nekocon program guide...and those were the best.

Another good show is the not-ruroni kenshin/samurai X samurai show...it keeps me entertained when I watch it on [AS] and same with the golden-inline-skater-bat-killer show...yeah...

Ah, so it's like a constant dinger that goes off if you go over 55? Good way to keep people from speeding, although it would be more affective if the sound were more annoying. It sounds cool in Tak's car.
