I watched Legend of Galactic Heroes: Golden Wings recently. Widely considered the black sheep of Logh, I must concur but it is still worth a watch. The seiyuu are different and far inferior. The animation style is completely different as well, eschweing the kickass realistic style of the main series and going with a cutesy typical anime style with giant eyes and a cartoonish drag queen villain. So why watch? Well firstly it is told from Seig's point of view so we get a lot more insight into him as a character, what motivates him, the impact Reinhard and particulartly Annerose made on him. Things hinted at in the main series are shown much more clearly, we also get a little bit of Reinhard/Annerose's early childhood before they met Seig. It was worth the first watch cause of this, however unlike the rest of Logh I probably won't revisit it.
just finished nisemonogatari and bakemonogatari last week
those series really need their own thread in the theatre lounge section because i would love to discuss them in depth
im watching nekomonogatari kuro now
and ill probably be looking for something else to watch soon
although the quickly flashing visuals that made the monogatari works epic was also one of the most annoying parts
because i always had to keep pausing and rewinding when it moved fast
but thats only a minor complaint about perhaps the greatest anime of all time
i decide .to watch arakawa : under the bridge because its on crunchy roll
which is my preferred method of watching anime (i mainly watch on my android phone so crunchy rolls app is popup free and very easy to use)

It's not quite as bad as Zetsubou sensei was with that. Zetsubou does that to an insane degree. It would throw full paragraph similarly timed frames. I found it borderline impossible to understand parts of that show at regular speed.
Arakawa fortunately doesn't do that. It's more easy going.
Just finished watching the Chuunibyou OVA, it was as good as I expected Really can't wait for the movie and the sequel
I just watched the movie Nerawareta Gakuen. I had never heard of it, GG happened to sub it, so I watched. Absolutely spectacular, short of Redline, the best animated anime I have ever seen. Beautifully written, symbolism rich, with a near perfect cast of characters.
I finally got off my ass and watched Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki. I could not agree more with everyone else who posted; it's a masterpiece, as great an anime as I have ever seen. Definitely Hosoda's best movie to date. No small feet, considering the brilliance of Summer Wars.
I'm also watching Ro-Kyu-Bu! right now, which is getting a new season this summer. If you like moe stuff, it's a pretty fun watch, if you ask me. No idea if anyone will like it for the basketball based plot, though I somehow found it interesting, as well. At least, it manages to go for more than just a cute cast and makes me wonder what will happen later in the story, which is more than good enough for my expectations.
Re-watched Death Note with a friend, it's so nice that they didn't have to care about fitting it into a special number of cours. Luckily I forgot a bit already, even when the outer plot couldn't really be forgotten. The second part isn't as bad as I had thought at first.
Four episodes into Hellsing Ultimate, some antiqued blood effects, the rest is very good stuff far.
