Anime

that's right. Anime. Do you watch it, what are your favorites or do you just HATE all of it?! I personally love some of it and hate some of it. My favorites are:::: Mushishi, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Death Note, Wolf's Rain, Trigun, FLCL, Haibane Renmei, Afro Samurai, and I think some are missing. Let's talk about it!

  • I used to love anime! Actually, I never really watched much but I read a lot of manga. I haven't much in the past few years though. I miss it.
  • STUDIO GHIBLI. HOWLS MOVING CASTLE, SPIRITED AWAY, PRINCESS MONONOKE, CASTLE IN THE SKY, NAUSICAA, THE CAT RETURNS, PONYO, MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO, GRAVE OF FIREFLIES. ZOMGS. my favorite movies of all time. they are genius.
  • I've only seen Howl's Moving Castle (which also used to be my favorite book, I haven't read it since 5th grade though) and Ponyo. And Kiki's Delivery Service which I love. Ponyo was adorable but what was up with the ending??
  • haha ponyo was good but not up to par with the others. Howls is my favorite, check out spirited away, it will blow your mind. and princess mononoke.
  • I've seen Grave of the Fireflies and it might be one of the most depressing movies i've ever seen. what about AKIRA and Ghost in the Shell (the movie)?
  • oh god i know it is heart wrenching. i felt a little less attached being an only child and never knowing that "sibling" bond. i haven't seen either of those. YET.
  • DO IT! Classics. Ghost in the Shell is ultimately better (Just the first movie!) But, you have to take into consideration, AKIRA is a movie adaptation of a set of Graphic Novels, 6 actually, that were all over 200 pages each (they went up to like...500 or more I think). So to fit that all into an hour and a half long (or however long) movie means a lot has to be taken out. Its still a classic though and must be seen!
  • I'm waiting for that anime about Buddha.
  • is that a real thing or are you just hoping they make one? buddah is awesome.
  • I used to watch anime quite a bit a few years ago, the ones I've liked: FLCL <!-- s:heart: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/heart.gif" alt=":heart:" title="heart" /><!-- s:heart: -->, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Ghost In The Shell (everything), Samurai Shamploo, Cowboy Bebop <!-- s:heart: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/heart.gif" alt=":heart:" title="heart" /><!-- s:heart: -->, Millennium Actress, and a few others I can't remember.
  • ah sweet, those are some of my favorites too, though I haven't seen Neon Genesis. I've never heard of Millennium Actress.
  • I need to get on ghost in the shell. i hear it's fantastic.
  • well it was a ground breaking anime! So was the graphic novel! The artwork is incredible along with the story line. I'm not a huge fan of the series but the first movie was amazing. seriously, you do!
  • My friend Darien is very into Death Note..."I'll take a potato chip....and EAT IT" I really prefer the manga, though...a self-diagnosed readophile.
  • I do love manga. Death Note; I wanted to hate it so badly when I first watched it but I couldn't. Its too incredibly smart with fantastic characters. I haven't been able to watch any other anime since seeing that. Its like my Animal Collective of anime. Because I couldn't listen to another band for months after hearing AnCo.
  • welcome! You should go post in the introduction section so we all can say welcome! And you could tell us a little something about yourself. I haven't seen Bleach either and have heard great things about it. I also rarely have the time to watch tv/anime.
  • I hated Death Note, it was so pretentious and pompous. It just went on and on, and they just pulled so much crap out of their ass to fill it. I never read the manga, nor would I ever. Which actually makes me recall Gantz, now that's one that I liked, although the manga suffers from randomness (as do most of them I presume). I stopped reading at Ch 300 something, I'll pick it up in a few years when it's over, hopefully. Millennium Actress is a film, with a soundtrack from the godly Susumu Hirasawa.
  • i'll have to check those out. I'm kinda bummed that you hated Death Note but I can understand why. I thought it sucked balls after the twenty-two episode or whatever when the plot crashed (you know what I mean.)
  • My fav anime is DeathNote. L RULES!!!!!!!!!
  • kids are for cartoons!
