Saiyuki Reload and an assortment of other new series

Series I'll be following (in order of how closely I'll follow them):
Full Metal Alchemist (4 episodes so far)
I'll be following this one. It's highly recommended. There's humor, character development, a probably interesting plot. People who liked Naruto would probably like this.

Gilgamesh (4 episodes so far)
Dark, gothic-ish. Something about terrorist sabatage, causing something or other to the world. Main characters be two siblings, sister and brother, who (by episode 3) start showing powers they didn't know they had.

Battle Programmer Shirase (1.3333333 episodes so far)
Each episode comes in three parts o.O hence the number. I'm following this one because it has a hacker. Animation is kinda crude (well, the people aren't curvyish like some other series) In the first episode, he used a cellphone to dial home and write/compile a program that destroyed another hacker. It appeals to the geeky side of me, despite the impossible.

Ai Yori Aoshi ~Enishi~ (3 episodes so far)
Continuation of Ai Yori Aoshi. Still the soft, gentle anime the original was. And because the original was so good, I'll be following this one.

Planetes (3 episodes so far)
It's ok. Story of a strongwilled, somewhat naive girl who goes into outer-space... to become a garbage collector. Not what she expected. Good if you're interested in anime series that develop characters. There's humor as well. And diapers.

Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito (3 episodes so far)
Ehhhhhhh. I dunno. It was a hentai game turned anime series? ::blinks:: whatever, action, relationships, and characters are interesting. And there's flashy magic.

Galaxy Railways (1 episode so far)
Looks very very interesting. Trains in space? I like the idea. Waiting for more to be fansubbed (sigh)

Mahoujin Guru Guru (3 episodes so far)
Ok, this isn't really _new_, but Anime-Keep is fansubbing this again (previously fansubbed by some other group). But it's funny. Very very very much so. Think RPG game, and then make the characters stupid and weak. And the bad guys funny.

Shingetsutan Tsukihime (3 episodes so far)
Interesting. Dark, involves vampires. Looks interesting, I want to know more about this weird boy who can see the breaking lines of things. (was that this series? I thought it was... yeah.)

Gunslinger Girls (2 episodes so far)
Senpai liked this, and ehh... I guess it isn't too bad. Kinda weird....

Other series (may or may not follow, we'll see):
Saiyuki Reload (2 episodes subbed so far - 4? raw)
Just watched the first 10 minutes of the first episode. It looks good, although the (perversion? nah, not really, differences, more like) make it interesting. Although it looks like it might turn out to be dragonballish and somewhat plotless. ::prods xella with a paw:: is there a plot?

I don't know. Quick skim through showed... weirdness. Saw something that looked like gladiator. Or something. ::shrugs:: I'm following too many series anyways

Kousetsu Hyaku Monogatari
Weird stuff, dark, unappealing animation. I think it's a compilation of ghost stories. Or something. First episode was weird.

Weird. Very weird. It's apparently the story of a boy who goes to a high school for delinquents. Only skimmed the first episode and saw some guy eating pencils. o.O

Peace Maker Kurogane
Looks too much like Rurouni Kenshin or Samurai Deeper Kyo, despite the fact that I haven't seen either. But those series just don't appeal to me. Probably because Lily babbles about it too much, and I tend to go for things that are unique and rare and stuff.
