I dunno, they seem prone to hand biting.  *chomp*

On a somewhat related note, I see you're mostly going through my Top 25 
list again. :)  My anime-viewing habits have been a bit awkward lately, 
but there's a new season afoot, so I'm trying to ramp up (and finish 
last season off).

Biggest show with buzz right now (at least in American circles): 
Samurai Champloo.  It has about half the team that worked on Cowboy 
Bebop (including director Shinichiro Watanabe) and is supposed to be 
meshing samurai culture with hip-hop music (which sounds bizarre until 
you remember that Cowboy Bebop meshed futuristic, space-bound bounty 
hunters with 1940s jazz music).  Show was licensed a long time ago, but 
people in the know will still be able to download it after its 
broadcast in mid-May.

Official site (with trailer):

Oh yeah, one other thing - they've announced that at A-Kon this year in 
Dallas, the very talented and popular group Do As Infinity will be 
performing.  If anyone is nearby, I highly recommend them.
