2007 in Review: Best Media

Note that these things are not necessarily from 2007, but just that 2007 is when I read/watched them. Also note that this is not an exhaustive list of everything I watched, but what I felt was "OMGAWESOMESAUCE."

For reference, I do keep a booklog, although I haven't yet added everything I read during the Fall semester for class. Yes, I know. 294 is a lot.

TV Shows
Heroes, season 1 (2 wasn't nearly as good)
Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, seasons 1-4 (although, 2 and 3 were best)
Samurai Jack, seasons 1 and 2
Avatar: The Last Airbender, seasons 1-3
Grey's Anatomy gets an honorable mention because season 4 was being so much better than season 3 was

Kiki's Delivery Service
Porco Rosso
Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Movie
The Departed
Marie Antoinette
Linda, Linda, Linda
Hot Fuzz
The Importance of Being Earnest
Sophie Scholl: The Final Days
(I need to keep better track of what movies I watch throughout the year)

Anime Series
Ouran High School Host Club
Welcome to the NHK
Princess Tutu
Romeo x Juliet
Black Lagoon
Sayanora Zetsubou Sensei (Goodbye, Mr. Despair)
Romeo x Juliet deserves and honorable mention because it started out amazing. I need to ignore the episode that made me stop, and see if it returned to awesomeness.
