shipuuden is back on track since 115 I think it was. I have started watching full metal alchamist the new one. It just shows different perspectives of the same story line.
The new FMA is following the manga, where the first one diverged very quickly and went its own direction.
Some of my favorite anime are: Gankutsuou, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Beck, Full Metal Panic, Hellsing, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Toward the Terra, Ghost in the Shell, Code Geass, Macross Frontier, Mobile Suit Gundam, Zeta Gundam
I'm watching Hetalia Axis Powers right now though and it's quickly climbing up the ranks in terms of favorites. It's so cute. TTwTT
