    Loved both Vampire Hunter D films.

    Watched Ghost In The Shell but wasn't too keen, maybe if I watch it a second time I'll like it more.

    The Final Fantasy 7 film Advent Children was really good but I still think they could have done better.


    As for series my favourite would have to be Tenchi. Leaves you with a lovely warm fuzzy feeling inside. :p [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1]Ryo-Oh-Ki is the cutest thing!

    Liked Hellsing a lot, darker and more in depth.


    I'm also a secret Pokemon fan.:confused:

    I haven't watched that much Anime, so any suggestions would be appreciated.
    What is your favourite?

    Personally Ghost in the Shell was my favourite anime (in terms of pure story, it's probably one of the more coherent ones out there! :) )
    Other good ones are Cowboy Bebop, Castle in the Sky (my favourite Ghibli production) and I quite like the new Sky High (may be Wonderful Days in the US) for the sheer beauty of it's animation blending minatures, 2D animation, CGI & real world plates

    Yeah, Wonderful Days it was in Norway as well. Saw it in a theater one year ago. It is really a beautiful movie. The motorcycle scenes, the gunfight in the canteen, and that scene where the truck went through the window. And the song was beautiful as well.

    Unfortunately they hadn't made as much of an effort with the story.

    I have seen quite a few mangas, my brother used to be a huge fan, he has kinda gone off them now.

    I have seen Akira a few times, ghost in the shell, princess monoko, shadow skill, street fighter... I admit I cannot remember many of the names.

    I have also sen some very, very sick mangas.
    Some which I could only view for 15 minutes before I had to turn them off.
    It makes me wonder about the people who think them up, surely they must be very disturbed.

    Now, now, remember this: Animé are animated features/series, while manga are comic strips and graphic novels. :)

    Well, that's the standard complaint with most anime isn't it? :rolleyes:
    Either generic paint-by-numbers popcorn sci-fi/fantasy or mental, headcase "make no sense" surrealism. :D

    I didn't 'get' Ghost in the Shell, maybe just because I have seen very little anime. I've also seen some Witchhunter RObin, which seemed ok.

    I think that a lot of it is 'lost in translation' I just take what I enjoy from it and also what I think I would never see in a mainstream movie

    Inuyasha nearly prevented me from getting into anime. For some reason this show is huge but the plot is not anything special and the action/dialogue is mostly for little kids. It was the first anime I had seen, and figuring this was the best one because of it's popularity I dismissed anime's as being anything worthwhile. That was before I got hooked onto Cowboy Bebop. The series is nothing short of amazing, but the final episode was just orgasmic. Another one of my favorite's is Samurai Champloo. I'd have to say that the middle of the series is just about as good as the middle of the Cowboy Bebop season. Depending on how good they end the series it may replace Bebop as my favorite.

    'classic' may be the wrong word - it was the animation equivalent of a video nasty during my time in school ;)
