I have the first Code Geass LE set, after that I'm just buying the ind. dvd's to fill it-I'm currently short the last two vols. I did the same with Lucky Star as well, bought the first LE set and then the ind. dvds-though I still have four vols I need to finish that series. :)

If a series is long I'll wait for a box set to come out, if it's a 6-7 dvd set, it depends on the box and on how long I'm willing to wait to see the series. I like to have the entire series before I watch it, that way I'm not sitting on the edge of my seat going "I can't wait for vol x to come out in two months!" I did that with Fate/Stay Night. I bought the box and vol 1 about the same time Jester did and then collected the indvid. dvd's after that, but didn't watch past vol 1. Jester on the other hand watched everything as he bought it. I sat back and laughed as he complained that an every-other-month release schedule was a form of torture. :D

I'm actually going to come out and admit that I've never seen anything Gundam and just in fact bought my first Gundam series (Anime Legends Collection version). I remember reading reviews about Gundam 00 though. I think the character designer was the same guy that did the characters for Tactics, which I liked. The series looks good, do you know if it requires prior knowledge of the earlier Gundam series?

I still need the last Geass LE. I've been enjoying the audio dramas because I think it's so neat that they took the time to translate those into English, too. ^_^ A real treat.

Which Gundam series did you get? (I think a few of them are under the Anime Legends line.)

Gundam 00 is separate from any of the other series, and while there are little throwbacks and such for long-time fans, it's perfectly enjoyable on its own with no previous knowledge. At least the first season is. The second is a little rocky. ^^;

I picked up the first coll. of G-Gundam (it was on sale at the time).

I still haven't gotten Greenwood yet, but based on your rec, I did manage to pick up the *entire* Utena collection (including the movie!).

RL has been crazy lately, but I am going to start posting to the comm again, and wanted to start by replying to the posts that were left unanswered. But I am sorry that it took me so long to reply!
