Rewatchability Watch (Umm...wait What?)

As some of you know, my mobile home was destroyed by an anarchist suicide tree back in November. Because I had moved nearly everything into the spare room because of some floor repairs, and because the spare room was destroyed quite efficiently. I lost most of my collection, including nearly all the DVDs and tapes I had. After I had paid for my tuition and books and was putting money aside I pondered replacing some of the Anime DVDs.
The purchase list was short. Rewatchability is a rare commodity.

Van Dread....yeah I picked up the thinpack. This show really ought to have been mediocre at best but it is one of the most satisfying shows of the last 10 years. I will certainly rewatch this.

Welcome to the NHK....the loss of the entire set gave me a chance to pick up the last disc (which was not available singly after Funnimation picked the show up midway through.

Lucky Star is apparently no longer in production...though I can probably get it on line.

Days of Midori which I mentioned briefly here is a spectacualrly good show with one of the worst premises of all time.

Full Metal Alchemist didn't get replaced as much as completed. I'd never picked up the third and final pack for reasons unrelated to the shows quality. Now I've watched the whole thing and it would have surely been on the list. I'll have a separate post on that later.

There was little else that I considered shelling out for, though I may pick up Black Lagoon at some point.

Zone of the Enders was on loan at the time...which is fortuitous as it is long out of print.

UPDATE: Inexplicably deleted the mention of Gurren Lagaan.

Also, Crest/Banner of The Stars was not destroyed.

1 That's quite a short list!

That's quite a short list!

Yes it is.
In fact as I type this is slightly shorter than it ought to be, but still.....
Part of the problem is financial. I've had to be very discriminating and there is also the fact that some of he older shows I'd like to see again are just gone.
I've enjoyed a lot of stuff but I don't rewatch much.

I've also bought a fair amount of stuff that's new to me or I'd only seen the first few episodes of.

Spice and Wolf
His and Her Circumstances,

Fate Stay Night,
This Lovely Yet Beautiful World
Hidemari Sketch
and Evangelion
which I've seen the very beginning of and very ending of and have long wondered "WTF!?"

3 "This Ugly yet Beautiful World" was a waste of your money, I'm afraid. Most of those others I haven't seen.
