Very interesting topic. I’ll suggest other people think of their list before you read everyone else’s, as it may influence your decision. I have no idea why I picked the ones I did. It’s just the first one that came to mind when thinking of the letter. They are in no way the best of the alphabet (or even good).

Earthian
Fushigi Yuugi

Queen Emereldas
Rahxephon

Queen Esmeraldes is the only other one people might have seen. Queens blade related shows probably account for half the question shows overall

Jas, you're missing a selection for 'P' methinks.

Yeah, I remember getting a bit of a nerd rush when Queen's Blade came out if only because I had shows for every other letter of the alphabet on the shelf and it inexplicably irked me that I was missing a letter. Now there is the Qwaser series so we don't even have to rely on "queen"s to prop up our collections. Another bit of trivia that I got from arranging anime is that titles that start with 'G' or 'S' number substantially more than the rest of the alphabet leaving 'A' and 'P' to duke it out for third place.

I did mine without studying anyone else's.

The letter that gave me by far the most trouble was "F". How I finally wound up with what I did instead of Fate/Stay Night, Fushigi Yuugi, or Full Metal <something>, I have no idea. Also my "M" pick when there are so many more high-profile M-shows. I didn't do a punctuation, but, obviously .Hack.

Some questions of nomenclature, too. My first "P" was, of course Patlabor, But then I thought, if I'm using "Revolutionary Girl Utena", aren't I obliged to call it "Mobile Police Patlabor"? And, of course, is it Ah! My Goddess or Oh!...? I worry about these things...

Also, would I be allowed to use either Haganai or Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai? The former is only a nickname in Japan, but was the title it was released under here. Similarly, Hare+Guu is a "J" in Japan. I need some guidance here!

(This is what happen when you show a gamer a game. It's not pretty.)

Miserably busy! hahaha I've got two part time jobs and a full schedule at JCCC!
I'm trying to catch up as much as I can before Jfest, but it's hard work!! -_-;

interestingly enough, I've still been able to watch at least a little bit of stuff.
I've got a friend who's going to be in town for the festival as well, so she'll probably be joining us (if she doesn't get cold feet).

A couple of people may have met her already, actually, since we went to Rebellion earlier this year.
I've missed everybody a ton, and I look forward to this weekend!
