As much as it shocks people to learn if they have met me, I am a huge fan of Sailor Moon, (with the exception of SuperS). And, believe it or not, I liked it for the storyline, especially Stars.
The only thing that could have made it better would have been a giant robot.
Other than Sailor Moon, I like most anything Gainax (furikuri, furikuri!) Nadia, (fuuuriiikuuuriii) Eva, (Fuuuuuu....) even occaisonally Ebichu...
Oh yeah, FLCL is in there too (Furikuri=god of all things kickass
But back to the topic of magical girl anime... Jubei-Chan, Shamanic Princess (Mmmm, blood magick), Ayashi no Ceres, Key the Metal Idol, Vampire Princess Miyu, and in a sort of twisted way Kite and Lain.
Just don't try watching these expecting happy happy sparkly joyfulness.
I am the very model of a modern angsty nemesis. 8)
