Cool! I first saw it on borrowed VCDs and then later got the remix, which is much better. I was hooked on the music from the opening credits.

Whenever I watch a series I try to watch it straight through to maintain the story. Last weekend I watched the first season of “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” on Friday and then Ghost in the Shell SAC on Saturday and SAC 2nd gig Sunday. Sometimes I love not having a life.

\:D I'm interested in Ghost in the Shell: SAC, but I haven't gotten around to trying it out yet. Also need to try Fullmetal Alchemist, my sister tells me. By the way, how was The Sarah Connor Chronicles? I've read positive things, but I'm always a little wary of TV shows that need special effects, because either they're trying to substitute the effects for the story or the story's good but the effects just can't keep up.

What other anime is in your favorites as far as music? While I have collected certain shows, I'm far from deeply entrenched in anime as a whole. Besides just for music, what are your favorite shows?

I really enjoy Cowboy Bebop. Couldn't stand it at first, but one fated night when I was too lazy to reach for the remote, I sat through an entire episode and things just clicked. I've watched the series and movie numerous times.

I've fallen asleep the first time I've tried watching several shows, and I think this was one of them. I'm glad I gave it another try. On the second disc now. \:\)

If you liked “Ghost in the Shell” then you will defiantly like SAC and SAC 2nd gig. If you haven’t seen any of them their timeline is Ghost in the Shell, Ghost in the Shell 2, SAC, SAC Solid State Society, and then SAC 2nd gig. Wikipedia has a good synopsis of the timeline in the 2nd gig entry. They even postulate that Appleseed occurs in the same universe at a different point in the timeline.

I have yet to see Full metal Alchemist. I should, as many people rave about it, but the few episodes I’ve seen on the Cartoon Network didn’t impress me. Probably one of those best watched straight through.

I liked “The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” I first watched it on DVD not during the season. The first season was only about 9 episodes but it’s been renewed and I think the second season starts on September 8. At first I only watched it for Summer Glau because I really liked her in “Firefly” but the whole show sort of grew on me. There are lots of things going on at the same time but the show manages to hold it together well. I’d say it’s much more story than special effect driven. Although I do like the whole story I probably wouldn’t stick with it without Glau’s character.

Except for Appleseed and Cowboy Bebop I haven’t paid much attention to the music past the opening credits.

For scifi anime I like the Ghost in the Shell stories SAC 1st gig the most; Cowboy Bebop; Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040.

For funny anime I love the Galaxy Angel series and “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.”

For drama Death Note is good.

For fanservice it’s Divergence Eve and Misaki Chronicles.

I will look into all of those. For Galaxy Angel, which one? Just Galaxy Angel, not A, Aa, S, X, or Z?

I hadn't even heard the term fanservice before. Nice. \:\)

You guys watch TV series for the music?? Can't say I have ever found a series that had music where that alone made it worth while.

It's an exception, not a rule. Most shows are primarily mood music and singles from established bands, so yeah, it's pretty rare to desire the soundtrack.
