I'd have thought that getting you arse kicked is a bigger insult and easier way of losing honour than saying "I'll never forgive you"... I find that irritating too.
Can't really say I've watched that much anime, but it's all over the manga.
Howl's Moving Castle
My Neighbour Totoro
The Cat Returns
Princess Mononoke (rubbish)
Pom Poko (what the hell?!?!?!?)
Perfect Blue (sheer genius!)
Naruto (first 26 episodes)
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (more genius)
Laputa Castle in the Sky
Millenium Actress (again, what the hell?!?!?!?)
Yu-Gi-Oh! (not as good as manga, been turned into kiddy crap)
Samurai Deeper Kyo
.hack// Legend of the Twilight
(and I recommend all of these!
