I'd have to agree. It is a true 10 in my book.

I've seen the first disc of Paranoia Agent and would have to agree. Also will have to go back and add some of the early Gundams to the list. They do make you think about war and relationships.

Blue Gender will have to go on the list too.

Glad to se there is still some activity on this thread.

I agree. FMA operates on a number of levels as it appeals to a wide audience. It poses some real questions about spirituality, choices and consequences. Great addition to the list.

You are right. It was quirky in a good way. You were never sure what was "real" and what wasn't.

Yeah, me and a friend think we've figured it out for the most part, but there are still things that baffle us.
