Kenshin is seriously one of my favorites.

The series is alright and I haven't seen all 95 episodes or so but the OVA's OMG! I love them, it captures everything I mean in such brilliance.

I heard there were 2 new OVA"s that came out apart from the 4 already out. I'm not sure yet I haven't checked into it.

I don't like Sailor Moon because of the one hit kills. Like I've been getting beat down yaddah then Blam I power up 1 hit kill.

I like DBZ because its kidna suspenseful it can drag on at times but thats just what they had to do to make it last since it was a TV series and not a movie.

Also Trigun is one of my favorites along with cowboy bebop. Cowboy Bebop has such deep descriptions of the characters and their lives that you get very involved. Also in Trigun getting to know him in the end is quite fascinating.

There is alot I like about Anime, it can have a great story and you can bring anything your imagination can think up to film. :)

Just my thoughts on the subject ;)

I love Japanese animation, but I only like the adult oriented ones. And I don't mean porn for crying out loud, I just don't like the kiddie story and animation for things like DBZ. I own like 65 Anime DVD's. Favorites as examples are of course Kenshin (the 4 part beautifully animated and bloody ones - not the kiddie series) Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Stree Fighter 2 the animated movie, Patlabor 1 and 2, Blood, Macross Plus, Ninja scroll, Wicked City, Spriggan, Kite, Angel cop and Perfect Blue to name a few.

LOl Angel Cop and Ghost in the Shell should be considered Hentai :p

I mean in Ghost in the Shell I believe she fought her best when naked.

Awww that's cute, you've obviously never seen hentai or you wouldnt be saying that haha. Hentai is hardcore pornography... but anyway....Alot of regular movies (hollywood) have nudity, just like regular adult oriented anime. It's normal and not considered hentai heh.

Grave of the Fireflies and Wind Named Amnesia are two of my favorite anime movies.

If tentacle rape turns you on, then it's time to look into Hentai. For that, you need a solid guide though. For that, I reccommend http://www.somethingawful.com/hentai/ (Only thing that'll top that is a naked woman throwing darts at a ballon to a tape of barking dogs... )

Laputa was my first ever Anime and that was pretty wicked. DBZ is wicked but I agree with whoever that it gets a bit boring fighting one enemy. Like when Goku powered up the spirit bomb for 5 episodes and then took another episode to figure that it hadnt worked. Then they did the whole 6 episodes that was an equivalent of one minute there time. That was amusing :rolleyes:

:rofl: :shrug: :asian:

And I thought I was the only one who loved that movie. Do you have it subbed or dubbed? To my amazement the DVD (besides missing a menu) only has the dubbed version.

You've got the DVD?!?!? I can't find it anywere! If the dubbing is well done I prefer dubbing, but alot of older anime have awful translation and I prefer subtitles. I only have the dubbed version on tape of SF 2 the animated movie.

The first anime I ever saw was a show called Voltron. I'm not even sure if anyone remembers it. Then came Thundercats - not sure if that was an anime, but it seems pretty much like it. Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z were the ones I paid the most attention to for the most amount of time, but now I'm into a lot of different ones: Yu-Gi-O, Rurouni Kenshin, Yu-yu Hakusho and Outlaw Star. I've also seen Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away - Tell me I'm not the only one here who loves those.
I'm not in any way claiming to be an expert on any anime, though I have to say I've got extensive knowledge in the realm of Dragon Ball Z. I've got just a long enough attention span, y'know?

Like I said the DVD isn't a really good "DVD" its just the movie without any featuers or even a menu.


On another note Cartoon Network just jumped back a ton of DBZ episodes AGAIN. grrrrrr

Nope Tekken sucked. I own both. Well it doesnt suck... it just doesnt hold a candle to SF2 the animated movie. Tekkens animation isnt as good, the story isnt as good, the soundtrack isnt as good... I could go on.

Keep in mind there are 2 street fighter animations. We are talking about Street Fighter 2 the animated movie not Street Fighter Alpha.

If anyone's interested, some names of really good recently released (past year) animations are Blood, Berserk (the series) and Spriggan. All available for rent at places like Rogers and sometimes Blockbuster.

Mononokes a favorite of mine. Got a wall scroll hanging of it right now. (Damn hard to find em at the local amine cons). Currently am working thru the DVD's of Kenshin and Urusei Yatsura. (Hey, I'm a sucker for a gal in a tiger stripe bikini) :)

hell yeah i remember it!

Dude! I was scared I was the only one who remembered it, and I'm only fourteen!
None of my other anime-freak friends have even heard of it, much less seen it.
