Good/bad anime thread
« on: January 16, 2012, 08:18:31 pm »
So, do some of you guys watch anime? I admit I'm kind of picky about mine, but then again I don't get to sample everything out there. My favorite anime of all time is Black Lagoon, and possibly whatever the fuck this is:

I haven't watched that much, but I love Cowboy Bebop.

Cowboy Bebop is one anime I want to watch when I get the chance. I've read some of the manga, but I don't follow it as well.

As much anime as I have seen, I have not seen Cowboy Beebop.  It's not particularly high on my list of priorities, either.  :P

Bebop is regarded as among the best anime series of all time. If you have yet to do so, watch it. Samurai Champloo is by the same director and quite good, too.

Oh, and Miyazaki's works. Awesome.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex is excellent as well.

Cowboy Bebop is pretty awesome. As is Hellsing and Drifters.

I thought Hellsing was kind of meh, because Alucard gets rather annoying after a while being essentially immortal and all. I've never heard of Drifters.

Though I have heard Afro Samurai is interesting.

Drifters is by the same person who did Hellsing. Take a few famous people who died violently (Toyohisa Shimazu, Oda Nobunaga, Jean de Arc, Rasputin, Hannibal, Scipio Africanus, Anastasia Romanov and others), place them at the head of two opposing armies in some weird fantasy world and let them fight it out. Also add in fantasy Nazi Germany and Hitler for fun.

No love for Outlaw Star?


The manga of Angel Sanctuary is also excellent, but I hear the OVA of the first 3 books wasn't particularly well done.  The story is 20 volumes long, though, so see if you can find it second-hand or borrow it from a friend.

And once again, I find myself running into an anime thread and bellowing 'Legend of the Galactic Heroes' at the top of my voice. Seriously people, this is one of those must see things, a grand sprawling space opera with the emphasis on the opera (note; does not include singing though opera is visited by the Kaiser). 17th Century Prussia Vs modern republican democracy IN SPACE. And the Prussians aren't automatically moustache twirling, opera cloak billowing villains for once either. Just some of them.

No love for Outlaw Star?

I'll give some love, if only because I spent all of sophomore year styling my hair like Aisha Clan-Clan (braided down the back with a large ring tied at the end. I used an old bracelet. Word of advice, simple bracelets work best. It took me forever to undo the damned thing when I used one that had faux jewel studs on it.).

No one has mentioned the madness that is Death Note yet. "I'll take a chip...and I'll eat it!" With the most dramatic music, cut away, and color saturation they could think of. Light had chips, L had sweets, and Misa had a most puzzling oral fixation involving lollipops.

Blood+ wasn't bad. Despite what she did to Riku I felt incredibly bad for Diva at the end.

Some of the Tenchi Muyo series will also get a pass. He never went to Tokyo in my world.

Revolutionary Girl Utena, both movie and series. Any movie that ends with
(click to show/hide)
gets an automatic passing grade in my book.

Dragon Ball/DBZ will get mentioned for the sheer nostalgia factor. I remember setting my vcr to record episodes that aired at midnight on toonami. Nothing happened after the Cell saga. Nope. They ended on a high note and
(click to show/hide)

Points to toonami for trying to alter the lesbian content in Sailor Moon by making them "cousins" and then leaving in most of the scenes that made it blatantly obvious to the contrary. I do believe they also turned the prettier member of a gay couple into female for the dub.

I have Shin Chan on DVD. Don't judge me or I'll sic Action Bastard on you.

I'll also admit to passing fondness for Inuyasha and Trinity Blood. If I was up and they were on I'd watch them.
Matthew 22:39 "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." God's own "don't be a dick" rule.

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.

Let me see... Cowboy Bebop, Outlaw Star, Full Metal Alchemist, DNAngel, Saiyuki, Witch Hunter Robin, Spice And Wolf, Weiss Kreuz, Serial Experiments Lain, Paranoia Agent, Ghost in the Shell, I'm getting into Puella Magi Madoka Magica (for those that haven't heard of it, think Sailor Moon with the safeties off.  Blood, gore, Anybody Can Die [and messily], and the fights are fucking acid trips) wicked fierce, I'm really getting a kick out of the Persona anime...

And anything Miyazaki is exquisite.

That's pretty much my list.

Edit:  I forgot about the Gundam series... Wing was my first love.  Cultural Catgirl Nuku Nuku too, along with Hyper Police!

There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

I must be the one person on earth who just... doesn't like Cowboy Bebop. The only thing it's remarkable for was having a dub that didn't suck. The show wasn't awful or anything, but it just never impressed me in the slightest.

Aside from that, I like everything Priestling just listed except Paranoia Agent. Just... bleh. Madoka, however, was pretty amazing.

And it is a crime that the thread has gone on this long without a mention of Lucky Star.

I'm more into the mecha genre, so stuff like Gundam 0080 (especially watched at Christmas), Code Geass, Tekkaman Blade, Escaflowne, Eureka 7, Gaiking LoDM, Gear Fighter Dendoh, Ginga Senpuu Braiger, Da Garn, Gunbuster and Rahxephon. For non-mecha shows I loved Baka to Test, Azumanga Daioh, Dragon Half, Enma-kun meramera and Now and Then Here and There.
