I have negative appreciation for it.

Doesn't everyone want a Totoro and a Cat Bus around?!!!  (Hmm, I suppose 
there are people who don't. but....)

I've seen about a third to half of  (bah, can;t think of the name of it--it 
doesn;t have Giant Robot, it's  space SF anime, the the characters are the 
members of one or more teams out collecting space garbage....) and will 
eventually watch the rest of it, I liked Crest/Banner of the Stars and wish 
that the Engllish print text translation weren't  in  Really Bad Trendy 
Teenage Jerk Spiek (major disappointment there, the original won the Seiun, 
so I have a diffucult time believing that the translation is accurate to the 
tone...) ...
