Rewatching Anime

I watch fansubs. I admit it. But I also make sure that I buy shows I watch when they come out. I've got a much too long checklist of DVDs that I'm slowly working on filling. Lately I've been re-watching Angelic Layer as I get it on DVD and I'm really happy with how it is showing up for another viewing. Some shows I buy I start rewatching and find I just can't get into them quite as much. The ones I watch and watch over and over again are the ones I'm most happy about owning.

What shows do other people find they love rewatching again and again?

I find that I tend to re-watch the comedies more often than the long series with specific story-arcs (Full Metal Panic! Fumoffu and Nurse Witch Komugi-chan Magikarte come to mind).

It's probably a time thing; I think that, to really appreciate any show which draws its storytelling and emotional power from its long story-arcs, then you're kind of bound to watch the episodes in the arc, as opposed to the more comedic shows, which you can just generally pick up anywhere in the series timeline.
