    Hey what is your favorite short anime series (13 episodes or less). Mine are: Kino's Journey, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Haibane Renmei & Lunar Legend Tsukihime.

    Not counting OAV's, then Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu! stands out. Then in a cluster are: Pretear, Black Heaven, and Generator Gawl. Then Samurai Girl Real Bout High School

    With Haruhi getting another season, it won't be a short series anymore, but if you're technically counting that as a short series, I'll have to revise my list to put Tenchi Muyo Ryo-Ohki OAV1/2 at the top, blowing all others out of the water.

    I second that. Afro Samurai was incredible. I can't wait to see what happens next.

    I also got to mention Tank Police New Dominion (still need to see the last two or three episodes), A.D. Police, The Guyver, FLCL, New Fist Of The Northstar (Most which the last two episodes of the goriest, bloodiest anime series I have watched to date) and Karas (well I'm not sure how amny episodes this will have but it can't be that long if it takes years for them to come out. lol And I got to watch the trailer to Part 2 today)

    Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid and Full Metal Panic! Fumoffu?

    And if you count both of Black Lagoon's seasons, as 2 separate series, then I would add:

    Black Lagoon and Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage

    I'm surprised that you didn't say TSR, seeing as how it is only 13 episodes long, is what you listed as your #1 favorite anime on your top 10 list, and since you count each of the FMP series/seasons separately anyways . Unless, of course, Haruhi somehow became your new #1 favorite anime within the last couple of weeks .

    OMG! How could I forget my no. 1 anime Full Metal Panic! TSR I guess I forgot all about it because it seems longer than it really is when I watch it. ^_^

    Yeah, I was wondering why you didn't list that . I was even about to say something like: "WOW! This Haruhi anime must be something pretty special for you to like it above TSR ." LOL
