wow not heard of any of those speedy will have to look into them,
I have tried slayers, Gundam, Those that hunt elves as well but they did not really hook me a series I am currently trying to watch is Vandread which seem ok.
I am not so much of a fan of the really cheesy stuff hence I am totally hooked on Cowboy bebop at the moment, as i have only just discovered it :)

*ready for flack* i prefer dubbed really personally I have found the voice acting very good in the dubbed editions, though the ability to pick between the formats (dubbed or subbed) on dvds is quite funky :)

subbed!!!! Dubs usually completely bastardise the experience. I literally cringed at the Love Hina dubs, the accents are horrid :D

Having had the subs running sometimes while wathcing some of them than I realise what your saying SPeedY as there is some variation, but I still think in series like GITS: Stand Alone Complex watching with it subbed makes it alot harder to follow, as there are complex dialogues and plots, combined with alot of action.

You know it! :p

I suppose it does depend, just in my experience I've always watched them in Japanese/Subbed (as they were intended so to speak) first before even listening to the dub track, so it seems strange and sometimes ... f-ing horrid :D

btw, if you don't like cheesy stuff, I think from my list you're best off starting with .hack//SIGN, the plot is awesome and there's definitely no cheese (unlike Love Hina which is uber cheese :D)

Play.com have Vol1 and 2 for £14.99 each including delivery. Vol1, Vol2 and there's more info at http://www.dothack.com/ :)

Cool will have to look it them I dont mind a bit of cheese Ranma 1/2 is crawling with it, but some of them dunno I they are just lost on me. Glad they are availble on play its the only one I have really found to sell region 1, though I am gutted as they appear to be out of Escoflowne the movie ultimate editions :'( and I can't remember if amazon.com will ship dvds to the UK.

the manga dubbed version of Ghost in the Shell is ok - the voice acting is pretty bland, but that blandness works for the film, aiding in the idea of the cybernetic indifference, etc etc. BUT, in my most humble opinion, I would stick with subtitles anyday, the original voice acting tends to be pretty sexy (and if the blandness was supposed to be there, it will be in the original anyway)

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
