Similarly, because I am several years out of the anime/manga scene, what would be the geekiest shows to be into circa today? It's okay if they haven't been brought over into English yet, but at least being in fansubs would be good.
(Yes, I realize these answers would vary from geek to geek, but I'm trying to get a general sense here.)
Thanks absolutely tons; this community is awesome!
(And absolutely no offense meant to any geeks in the audience. Everything is said with love, not to mention appreciation of your expertise.)

I figure he probably left a couple consoles back home, though, so I'll refer back here when need be. Really, thanks again!
