You MUST watch: (snip assorted recs)
*** For the goofiest ever, yet strangely compelling: Kyo Kara Maoh.
OMG, Conrad's a-a-a-rm!!!
Excellent all-round, but dark: Fullmetal Alchemist Col. Roy Mustang
was my favorite character.
A very nice ( brilliant animation) historical-contemporary fantasy blend
(which you can do when you have reincarnation) : Otogi Zoshi I liked
this one a lot, despite certain plot flaws.
And now for something completely different: Fruits Basket Shy
Japanese high school girl heroine.
Guilty pleasure: Mirage of Blaze. It's like canonical slash.
Contemporary Japan: Hikaru no Go I adored the Heian Go-master
Best ever quasi-historical I've yet seen, if you can find it:
Saiunkoku. Young girl makes good -- by her brains! -- in a land
resembling ancient China. Excellent on every level.
The adventures of a Goth girl to whom all fans can relate: Wallflower.
*Everything* by Studio Ghibli
Edo-period historical, with hip-hop (and it works) : Samurai Champloo.
Heian again: Shonen Onmyoji, but there only seem to be 2 discs
available, very frustrating.
Contemporary -- a fan club in a regional Japanese college, Genshiken
Wonderfully observed characterization.
