I finally found the Animated Series from way back that I used to love. It's called Revolutionary Girl Utena. Ever heard of it?

It's one of the key 90's works. I've seen a few eps, but never the whole thing. Ikuhara is an auteur, if going by the reactions of the stuff going on in Mawaru Penguindrum.

Realizing that I will probably finish COWBOY BEBOP before the month's end. Thinking about what to watch next. Leaning towards PARANOIA AGENT, which I'd have to buy, but it's short and it's by Kon. On instant, there's also TRIGUN and FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: BROTHERHOOD, but both are rather long and would take a while to get through.

Though I have little influence with you, I have to try and push you towards PARANOIA AGENT.

Paranoia Agnet takes the themes of Perfect Blue and handles them with the daring of Paprika, creating something with more elegance, creativity and maturity than anything else Satoshi Kon has done.

I've seen more movies on your recommendation than most filmspotters. Some of them were good, too!

Because it's short Paranoia Agent is probably worth watching, though I was pretty disappointed with how it panned out. Fullmetal Alchemist is my choice though.

Both Trigun and Fullmetal Alchemist are on Hulu or Hulu+ (not sure which).

I am really enjoying Hulu+, and my wife is working her way through all of Star Trek, from Next Gen., after watching all of Firefly. Me I am going through The Sarah Jane Adventures.
