My Upper Tier as it stands now:

I just wanted to list my favorite shows again.  Mostly because a couple dropped off the list since the first time I did it.

Rah Xephon- Rah Xephon still tops all with it's amazing relationships.  Wonderful characters and beautifully handled interactions (especially that between Ayato and Haruka) carry this show for me.

Revolutionary Girl Utena-  I like Utena.  Once again the characters stand strong.  Most of them are deep, complex people.  I also like the surreal elements that show up throughout. 

Crest of the Stars- There was some talk at some point of moving Fate Stay Night above this show.  But I can't do that until I give Crest another watch through.  I owe Crest that much for Lafiel's sake if nothing else.

Fate Stay Night- Like all of my top tier shows, the characters and relationships drive this one for me.  The beautiful but painful ending doesn't hurt either. 

Off the top:

8th MS Team-  Don't get me wrong, I still love 8th MS team, and I worry that I'm doing it a disservice.  I really enjoy the love story, but any time they're not together the show just falls a little short.  It certainly has its moments, but I don't think I can keep it in the top any longer.  I think the Middle tier is more clearly its place.

Infinite Ryvius- This show didn't survive the rewatch.  I still think it is a good show, but I didn't get far enough through it this second time to get to the points I really liked.  I know most of the characters are good enough to make it a very enjoyable show, but most of them really don't start that way.  I'll probably give it another shot, but for now it probably stands below some other shows that were in my middle tier when I first watched them.
