Bottle Fairy yes. Gokusen maybe. But Ginslinger Girl had its fans. They're all very strange people, but all the same.
Oh, and you forgot 2x2=Shinobuden. Funny first episode, pity the rest were scheiße

What is needed is for 2007 and 2008 to be at least as good
, if not better
, than 2006 for one to say that there has been a revival in the fortunes of anime. 2003-05 had their good shows, but the majority was just plain, honest scheiße
, much the same as a decade beforehand when all the good stuff were oavs, and thus there was very little of it around. 1995-96 saw a revival, mostly in tv anime, so if the pattern holds, 2008 should be legendary.
