DVDs for Condor  
I looked over some new and upcoming DVD releases for the anime room for Condor (in San Diego in March). I like all of these, but can't afford to buy them all. They're all series, so I'd buy the first volume or two. I want to get some idea of which ones people would want to see most.
Poll #837142 Condor anime room DVD purchases

Which DVDs should I buy to show at Condor?

Elemental Gelade
Ergo Proxy
Full Moon (Magical Throat Cancer Girl)
Midori Days
Moon Phase
Paradise Kiss
Speed Grapher
Strawberry Marshmallow
Trinity Blood

I am assuming that Condor is a generic convention, and not a specifically anime-con.

Kamichu is incredibly Japanese: the idea that everyone is/has a kami, and that the kami surround people. That may make it a good choice, but it may also weird people out.

Paradise Kiss is edgy and fashionable. I suggested it precisely because it is not very Japanese -- it could have happened in the US too. That may make it a good choice because US people can identify with it.

Trinity Blood is visually pleasing, with stretches of violence interspersed with stretches of quiet story. And it is weird. That may make it a good choice because it will present the audience with a chance to get acquainted with the way anime tells stories.

Perfect Hair Forever!

I have all 6 episodes (12 mins each) on my TiVo. It was on Cartoon Network earlier this year, as part of Adult Swim.

meh, aside from Bleach I didn't like any of these.

love for "Magical Throat Cancer Girl", btw.

I'd suggest "Three Days of the Condor", but it's not anime.

I picked ones I know in the poll and ones that sound cute. You should definately get more stuff by Broccoli.
