right... i only really liked the first series, and the first 4 gamses... after that it was sort of silly and more for kids... still interesting but it changed. Have you seen Madoka? The music is done by the same person... its really good!
GU was okay imo, my fave .hack series was actually liminality, that four ep OVA that was actually alloutside of the game,lol. But I also liked sign and the infection series. Moreso with the later ones, I just realy like the character designs XD Haven't seen Madoka yet, although know tons about it. I'm sorta addicted to Kajiuri Yuki-san as a composer so yeaaah...XD I can tell you basically every series she's done stuff for, and also every music group she writes for (like she did Seesaw that did the sign and liminality openings, and Kalafina who did the ending song for Madoka)
lol thats very interesting i like her music and might start watching more series that she contributes music to. I watched some of her live you tube videos and i hope she comes to something like acen (although she's proably too popular for it). You should watch madoka cause its better than you are thinking... it's really a horror/psychological anime not a cutesy magical girl show!
madoka's artwork is really breathtaking and ridiculous at times... if you can get and hd version its worth seeing some of the effects and transitions. speaking of time... isn't Noir with the time chime in the main theme... I started watching it but i didn't think it had enough to it to keep me interested. I think i got more into Excel Saga!
