I recently moved to PA from CA, and it's great to find anime people here. ^_^
Favorite anime EVAR, OMG: Probably Yami no Matsuei (or Descendants of Darkness, or whatever you want to call it; it was nice that they translated the title correctly, though, none of this "Weiss Kreuz = KNIGHT HUNTERS" crap. I mean, really. Where are the knights?). I also really like Meine Liebe, but not a lot of people have heard of that one.
Current stuff: I just finished Samurai Champloo (like, ten minutes ago) and I liked it a lot, mostly because of Jin, and the fact that THE FIGHT SCENES WERE WELL-ANIMATED. *weeps with joy* For someone whose first anime she watched in anything even vaguely resembling a dedicated fashion was Dragonball Z... this was nice. I'm also watching Tsubasa:Reservoir Chronicle, Bleach and Kyou Kara Ma-Ou, which are adorable, well-plotted, and completely cracked-out, respectively.
Recs would be nice, for either anime or manga; I like anything by Yuki Kaori or CLAMP, and also Death Note, Shaman King and Hellsing. Supernatural and sci-fi stuff is good, too.
Also, does anyone have information about conventions in the Pennsyvlania area? I've been looking, with a staggeringly limited amount of success...
