I love LOVE Wolf's Rain and Beck! Two classics I've seen a couple of times! I'm like so excited someone mentioned those shows. 

Wolf's rain is fricken amazing hands down, and certainly has a lot of rewatchabilty for me too along with Spice & Wolf.

I don't think they're mentioned enough. I think people forget about them because they were overshadowed by some of the more popular animes of their time ie Fullmetal Alchemist, Inuyasha, Cowboy Bebop, Bleach etc. Not that it's anything new. But they are sadly easy to be forgotten about over time, and it's hard to find anywhere to stream those two especially. I own them both on disc thankfully. :)

Another show I have seen a few times is, Witch Hunter Robin. I will forever love that show. 

Trust me I am an oldie anime queen when it comes to anime from the 1980s- early 2000s. I loved shows like Big O, YuYu Hakusho, Candidate for Goddess, etc.. Also, Cowboy Bebop though...it has its own level of respect and I am glad it is a very memorable anime.

Yah I feel like I am a old anime person to not that I like all older anime more then newer stuff I love the newer stuff as much if not more then the older 90s stuff. Its just I grew up with the 90s so it is ingrained in me. There is a;so no question that a lot of older anime dose have more rewatch value then the newer stuff.

I can re-view Digimon's anime for forever. It exudes greatness and that is why it's an epic series. As you can tell, I've been a lifelong fan since 1999. Yeah, Digimon are the champions!

I remember when the first Digimon movie came out in theatres. That was lit and I fangirled so hard. I use to have a crush on Matt and when they showed them in the new DigiDestined group. I was so happy. Now I know they came back in Digimon Tri; which I have not finished. But I wouldn't mind rewatching Digimon (selected seasons).

I'll confess I've never seen Digimon.

That movie was a good one when I was a kid as well. It wasn't even advertised as anime in America, but I knew it was along with most people viewing it I am sure since Digimon was not really mainstream

Oh no no. It was definitely advertised in America. At that time Digimon and Pokemon were pretty well known on kid's WB channel when it existed. Pokemon was obviously the most popular out of the two. But Digimon held its own with fans, just died faster.

Pardon me on that I mean yes they were both popular, but not everyone viewed them as anime, but just as animation more, or less. Digimon did take a backseat to Pokemon which in my opinion it deserved more, but then I loved the series still do today.

Gotcha! Yeah, that was considered as just cartoons. That I definitely agree with!

Of course at that point I already knew they were anime so did a lot of people who saw the movie from what I can imagine.

Guilty as charged for that yes. The one's I usually can watch over and over and never get bored are these five (well technically six if you count both FMA series): 

Samurai Champloo

FMA (Brotherhood and original)

Dragon Ball Z

Gundam Wing

Sailor Moon

I know the feeling it is hard to pin point until you see them pop up somewhere, or you really really like them since there is so many out now.

Yes, either cause I liked it so much I wanna watch it again (Ex: Steins;Gate), usually within a year. OR it's been like 3+ years and I want to see if the opinion I had towards it initially still holds up or if my feelings have changed about it (Ex: Death Note and Higurashi). Both still hold up quite well btw.

But yeah, I rewatch shows occasionally.

Honestly it really depends on the anime. Most of them; yes I would. One series that I've probably watched over and over and over is Ouran High School Host Club

Lately however I haven't rewatched any anime that I've seen just because I have so many that I still need to watch, lol.

I'm yet to rewatch an anime but I've rewatched plenty of TV shows and movies. I may go back and rewatch some of my first or favorite anime eventually.

I won't doubt or disagree a lot of non anime shows are easier to rewatch since they tend to be more episodic. A serial plot is once but because it makes you feel overall more fulfilled afterwards it is over then you have less desire to see it again unless it was truly epic.

So, ever since stumbling onto this topic. I have been thinking of my past and how much of a weeb I was. I am starting to recall other animes I've seen at least twice. One great series that I have seen a few times, Last Exile. I was excited when Last Exile made a comeback but different characters for the most part. Yet, I had trouble finishing it.

That is a freaken awesome one for the ages. I honestly need to sit down with it again myself now.
