I really like them as well. I'm not a mega-fan of TMM like her, but I like learning about the series a little more at a time. Personally can't wait for the next one on the dubs.
For me, it was probably the third or fourth manga series I started buying (I became an anime fan a month before the first omnibus came out), so I admit it's pretty special to me too. I also saw the entire anime series a long time ago but I think I need to go back and rewatch it.
