I can see you're into the bleaker series. Well, I put off Kino's Journey some time ago because it was rather slow, I've been toying with picking it back up, again. That said, I also kind of want to watch some .hack now that you've got me thinking about it. I'm ashamed to admit I didn't watch Tenkuu no Escaflowne because I wanted to see better art when I first attempted. If I recall correctly, I was watching a number of early 2000 shows back to back and I was sick of it, that said, I did like what I saw; and I usually don't like Mecha. Then again, it was pretty cringe at times.
