    need a new series to blow away the holiday. looking for a series that's already finished, something up to 2 seasons. not looking for anything long ass like bleach or naruto or one piece. i've seen and like these, among others:

    Last Exile
    Fullmetal Alchemist
    Banner of the Stars (all of them)
    Cowboy Bebop
    Samurai Champloo

    That's all I can think of at the moment. If someone can recommend a good series AND where to download it, will greatly appreciate it.

    oh and anyone know where to download Battle Angel Alita the OVAs and the manga? Thanks!

    i wouldn't rely on my synopsis since i suck at that kind of stuff but basically

    baccano is a story that takes place in america in the 20s i think... anyways it revolves around multiple characters and how their lifes intersect with each other. but its all interesting because some of the characters are imortals, mafia, assasians blah blah.

    ttgl = super fucking gar mech. if you aren't a fan of mech don't worry its nothing like you've seen. amazing story, awesome art, and yoko's boobs. basically its the story of simon, kid that lives underground like the rest of humanity, with the help of some people he makes it to the surface and saves everyone in the world.

    darker than black, bunch of people have magical powers after some crazy event characters try to discover the mystery blah blah.

    check ANN or anyother site if you want a better summary.

    Take a look at Black Lagoon as well.

    Cliffs: Explosions, more explosions, lots of shoot outs, tits, more explosions.

    Banner of the Stars and Cowboy Bebop were both produced by Sunrise. Samurai Champloo wasn't, but it's a bit of a spiritual successor. I'd look for another series produced by Sunrise if I were you. Check here:

    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/company.php?id=34

    Outlaw Star is very similar to Cowboy Bebop in a lot of ways. Other Sunrise stuff I liked are; My-Hime, My-Otome, Planates, s-cry-ed, and Vision of Escaflowne.

    I usually check baka-updates.com first. If what I want isn't there I'll go to boxtorrents.com or mininova.org. If I still haven't found what I want I'll look on anidb.net to find out what groups released it and then go to their IRC room.

    have you seen the melancholy of haruhi suzumiya? that's another good short one.

    also, what's your definition of short? right now i'm only trying to think of 13 episode series, but if the normal length (26ish) is good too, there'll open things up a bit.
