Use to watch Dragonball Z, some toonami, and some of the movies Sci-Fi channel use to show.  Don'y watch any Anime regularly.

Yeah, DBZ for me as well. Also like Ninja Scroll, Blood the last vampire, Vampire Hunter D, Astro Boy and FIST OF THE NORTH STAR (Venomx, you are not the only one lol), oh and Wicked City and Urotsokidoji (don't know if I spelled that right) were all right.

I finally got into back into my anime collection and watching Yu Yu Hakusho.  I got to finish season 2 and then get into season 3, which I now have.

Small piece of advice: once you get past the Sensui arc, you can pretty safely ignore the rest.  It's pretty bad.  Even the Sensui arc is a little weak.

Also, whatever you do, don't ever listen to the English dub...  It's atrocious, especially Kuwabara's voice.

I've seen Anime stuff over the years.  My first introduction, I suppose if it counts, was Pokemon and Sailor Moon.  But I never was a fan, really.  A buddy of mine is huge into it, stuff like Dragon Ball Z and a lot of anime movies. 

Always seemed a bit 'nerdy' to me.  Not knocking it, as I did like this one movie I saw, but I've always considered myself a 'fringe nerd.'  In the sense that if I'm at say, a comics convention, I'm not necessarily out of place, but I"m not so excessively nerdy as to ask a writer or artist something like, "What was (insert character) thinking on page 34 of issue 29?  And why was he thinking that?"  I'm more into 'regular' cartoons, so to speak. 

But, I did like this one movie I saw on Syfy a whiles back.  Wouldn't be bothered now to track it down, but it was better than I thought it'd have been.

Too late for that.  I've been watcing the show in English dub.  I've heard worse before and personally, I like it.  I do agree that Kuwabara's voice is pretty bad (Not as bad as Hiruma's voice in Eyeshield 21.)

Honestly, aside from one or two characters, the English dub isn't so bad.  I think I was exaggerating with atrocious.  Yusuke, Hiei and Kurama all have competent voices.  But Kuwabara, who was my favorite character, has such an incredibly awful voice (it's probably the least fitting voice I've ever heard in anime, aside from Moro's voice in the Japanese version of Princess Mononoke) it makes the episodes unbearable for me.  In general, I rarely like English dubs myself, as even when the actors are good they usually are not appropriate for the characters (Cowboy Bebop is one example - pretty good voice actors, poor matching of characters).  They also talk in a way unlike how anyone speaks in real life, it's like a phone voice for many of the English anime dubs.  Getting a bit off-topic there...

I also have to say, their translations of the fighting terms are also sometimes ludicrous in the English version.

Not really..
I watched a few episodes of Trigun, which was pretty good.
And, like 2 episodes from Cowboy Bepop, also good.
Oh, an I watched Death Note, but that's about it.

Other than the Studio Ghibli stuff I haven't been keeping up with much anime. I just got bored with a lot of the series in the mid 90's when a lot of it got to be too much of a self parody, without the innovation. I grew up with Starblazers, Battle of the Planets, Voltron, Tranzor-Z, Robotech all the series we lovingly called Japanimation back then. While the animation might look crude now in some of these, they had great stories that just were not being told in domestic American animation. I got to see Akira during its theatrical release in 1988 which is still a high point for me theater wise. I talk to some fans today who are hard-core anime freaks, and they have never seen Akira, heard of it, but not seen it  Question It boggles my mind. 

Some of my favorites:

The Castle of Cagliostro - simply one of the best films ever made period. Does anyone else remember the laser disc arcade game called Cliff Jumper they made out of this that was like Dragon's Lair and Space Ace??
Appleseed
Black Magic M-66
Wicked City
Record Of Lodoss War - 1st series
Giant Robo
Ninja Scroll
Vampire Hunter D
The Five Star Stories
Fist of the North Star - the cult is growing  TeddyR
The Venus Wars
BAOH
Demon City Shinjuko
Lensman - I add this one hesitantly, but I do like some of the bad guy designs, and the then innovative use of CGI mixed with hand drawn cels. Doc Smith would most likely not have approved.

I am sure there are many I enjoyed that I have forgotten over the years.

Worst anime I have ever seen? Hands down Tekken. Half the cast of the game were relegated to a 1 minute cameo if that  Hatred

I recently bought a lot of anime with my Christmas money.  I got a good deal:

When They Cry Complete Box Set (Actually I got it for Christmas, but still)
Baccano! Complete Series
Yu Yu Hakusho Season 4
Midori Days Complete Series
One Piece Season 1: Third Voyage
009-1 Complete Collection

It was a good haul and I have to admit, Baccano! was the best.  It was an interesting take on 1920s New York with rival Mafia rivals battling each other.

I have a few gift cards, so I may be getting some new anime soon (probably sgt frog season 1 pt 2). Otherwise, I've been watching Hikaru no Go, which, given that its basically about a kid learning how to play the japanese board game Go (more or less the equivalent of chess, at least in terms of its intensity) is surprisingly entertaining. Its on Hulu, subtitled only, although it appears they did release a dub.
