This is one of my favorite anime. It is one of the first shows I've watched that made me addicted to anime. It has a great plot that shows a wonderful story of friendship. I personally liked the music from the original anime, but story- and art-wise, I prefer the remake. ^^

I love this show! I hope they end up making new episodes. There's a lot of stuff that happened in the back i think with the creator? But I don't know exactly what. I read conflicting stories, anyone can shed light on this?

This has got to be my favorite manga/anime (only season 1 though). I really liked the plot and twists and I was always looking forward to the next episode/chapter. The music for the anime was also good. I didn't really like the second season though. ^^;;

I really enjoyed (and I still do) reading this manga. I love the art – it’s very detailed! Character development was great and the plot is quite unique and well-orchestrated. I always look forward to the next chapter. ^_^

This is my favorite manga of all time~! I really love the art~ When friends ask me for a shoujo manga, I always recommend this first. This is perfect for people who are just starting to read manga. It’s short and it leaves the readers happy and satisfied after reading it. I’ve always wished (and still does) that this would become an anime one day. I really love it to the point I bought the translated manga. ^_^

This show is quite dark and gloomy. It took me a few episodes to actually get into it, but as it progressed, I was drawn into the plot and was curious about what's going to happen next. In my opinion, the animation is good and the series has several good twists to it. ^^

Houtarou Oreki sticks to his motto until he joins the Classic Literature Club (古典部 Koten-bu) upon his sister's request when he enters high school.

Even though the cases were 'simple' compared to your typical mystery anime, this is what makes Hyouka unique. They mostly solved negligible mysteries but the riddles still sparked my curiosity. The animation was splendid, too~ ^^

This anime definitely caught my interest from the first episode. I think the plot is quite unique and it's a good anime to watch if you just want to relax and not think too much. ^^

It took me a while to start watching this anime. ^^;; I like it because the protagonist is not the typical weakling. The art is good, too~

I liked SAO but season 2 was getting pretty boring for me. If you want my opinion I'm more 50/50 on it. Season 1 had a lot of cliche moments and season 2 wasn't really necessary. It's like hack// but not as good.
