This is an attempt to list the anime series I have seen. I'm sure I'm forgetting many series and I am always watching new shows so this list will probably grow indefinitely. Defying the impossible, I have tried to condense these shows into a short description to give some idea of what the anime is about.

To the right of the table is what I own of these series.

The titles are in alphabetical order. You can scroll through the titles (which is fun =D) or you can jump to a specific title with the menu at the right
