Well I like anime Aash Li... and so do thers around here... check out this thread by jedigoku.

I like Masamune Shirow's works...

> Dominion: Tank Police (Gotta love the Puma sisters) :naughty:

> Ghost In The Shell

> Appleseed

> Black Magic M-66

 

The others I like;

> Record of Lodoss Wars (Awesome AD&D Style Fantasy Anime)

 

> Bubblegum Crisis Series (Gotta Love Women In Power Armor)

 

> All The Macross/RoboTech Series and Movies (And the Original Unaltered Works that made up RoboTech like Genesis Climber Mospeda)

 

> Mobile Suit Gundam (Up to and including the F-91 and 0083 Series, I have not seen the G. Seed and G. Wing Series yet...)

 

> City Hunter (Older Series very cool, very funny series.)

 

> Cowboy Bebop (I love Spike's Fighter... and then there is Fey Valantine) :naughty:

 

> MADDOX-01 (A practical and sweet-looking Power Armor that runs on Diesel fuel... good story too.)

 

> The Guyver (I love the whole Bio-Armour theme)

 

> Trigun ($$60,000,000,000 Please!)

 

> Armor Hunter Mellowlink (Older Post Apocalyptic Setting Series)

 

> The Dirty Pair (Kei and Yuri, wear very little, blow up planets, nuff said!) :naughty:

 

> Ninja Scroll

 

> Akira (How could I forget that one... I didn't like it at first but it grew on me.)

 

> SolBianca

 

> Patlabor (Like Hill Street Blues with giant robots.)

Heard of all those, never saw any of them except Ghost in the Shell (love the series)

 

Record of Lodoss Wars

Bubblegum Crisis Series

The Macross/RoboTech Series

 

Yeah saw all those except Lodoss War

 

Mobile Suit Gundam

Got tired of them afterwhile. You can only do so much mecha before it gets old.

 

City Hunter

Havent heard of it... (and no Im not young, I used to watch Star Blazers on network tv)

 

Cowboy Bebop

Faye... nuff said. <3

 

MADDOX-01

Heard of it, havent seen it.

 

The Guyver

hahahahahaha

 

Trigun

Love trigun. It would be 100 times better if it got rid of the angst and drama. I love that cat in the show that appears everywhere.

 

Armor Hunter Mellowlink

Sounds sorta familiar.

 

The Dirty Pair

Is that like Dirty Pair Flash?

 

Ninja Scroll

Never saw it, but I know of it.

 

Akira

ugh.

 

SolBianca

Love this anime!

 

Patlabor

I saw this one once, but I dont remember anything about it. <_<

Aash Li, All the Shirow anime I would recommend, both the old and newer remakes are pretty good. Dominion is a classic. ;)

 

If you like fantasy stories like LOTR, and get a chance to see it, Record of the Lodoss Wars is really, really good...

That is why I stopped watching the newer series myself after a certain point, but the old ones still have a place in my LD and DVD collections. ;)

Sort of, the older series is what I was referring to. I have not seen Dirty Pair Flash yet, but I believe it is the same series, story wise, just modernized a little.

 

City Hunter... what can I say the hero is James Bond one minute, and if a pretty girl walks into his line of sight he becomes anything but suave and debonair... some really humorous scenes abound in this series. Some of the Laws of Anime are readily apparent in this series.

 

Maddox-01 is a movie about a normal guy who gets possession of a prototype diesel powered suit of power armor, and then chaos ensues.

 

Patlabor, well like I said it is Hill Street Blues with the police in giant robots. A little more cerebral than most, which adds to it's novelty to me. :D

Go to the fan art section section. That's where the anime is.

Fanart is never considered anime ED.

I am of the school of thought that unless it is animated, it isn't anime...

 

If you made 24 frames of fanart and turned it into a 1 second movie clip then your fanart could be considered anime.

 

Most fanart fits more into the Manga catagory... but that is just me most likely. :D

 

EDIT: @ Cyborgninja what is Naruto like?

 

EDIT 2: Put in a missing word... response to Aash Li's post below! :D

Ghost in the Shell - Stand Alone Complex

Haibane Renmei

Berserk

Record of Lodoss War (the one in 13 parts NOT the one in 26)

Has anyone seen Elfen Lied? I have heard it should be really good.

For simply *the* wierdest hentai movies ever, I would reccomend:

 

Yurotsukodoji - I saw this once because my cousin rented it. I liked it because Im a fan of utterly bizzare scifi. hehe And Im probly spelling it wrong, because I can never remember the spelling...

 

and I think Demon City Shinjuko is another anime thats just really wierd and hentai, but Im not sure.

 

Yes! Someone else has seen Haibane Renmai! I absolutely loved that series! The last half of that series I cried through nearly every episode.Very angsty but also bittersweet. :)

 

Oh, and before anyone goes and gets Loveless, I warn you its Yaoi, though there is no sex or anything, its just got two guys kissing and snuggling in it. ^_^; But its really pretty good as far as yaoi goes.

 

Samurai Champloo is pretty good too, Ive been enjoying it. I really like Fuu.

 

FLCL is probly the most random anime ever, besides Paranoia Agent. I really liked FLCL, or FRCR as it would be in Japanese (no l in their kanas)

 

Paranoia Agent anime's bizzareness fails to be able to be expressed with my current set of words. lol

 

As for movies Im an utter fan-girl (the near squealing type) for Hayao Miyazaki's movies. And Howl's Moving Castle was no exception. I got to see the original movie as an English subbed version before it came to the US. hehe I also liked Princess Mononoke, but not as much as Spirited Away - I still cry during the ending of it, and Ive seen it 4 times. ^_^

I like certain shows, but I find with anime you have to wade through a lot of crap to find the good stuff. Here are the ones I got into, although there are others that I have liked over the years.

 

Films:

Ghost in the Shell 1 & 2

Patlabor 1 & 2

Macross: Do You Remember Love (probably a little before the time of some of you :) )

Ninja Scroll

Akira

 

Series:

Macross (SDFM, Plus, Zero, not 7!)

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GiG

Samurai Champloo

Patlabor

Cowboy Bebop

 

Shows I enjoyed as a kid:

Astroboy

Starblazers (a.k.a. Space Battleship Yamato)

Speed Racer (a.k.a. Mach Go Go Go)

Battle of the Planets (a.k.a. Gatchaman)

 

And even though it isn't anime, I love Samurai Jack. :)

Starblazers/Space Battleship Yamato was my most favourite "cartoon" when I was little, then Transformers came along. hehe. I still love the anime though.

 

I still call those two cartoons, even though I know they are anime now...

I know its just semantics, but most people dont consider x-men or other marvel comics cartoons anime.

 

Anime is just the Japanese word for animation, and they are both the same thing in concept in that they are both animated, but dont go around to anime-cons and call the xmen/fantastic 4, anime. :p

I think I get the same type of reaction, but most people are tending to place it in the same category as "hentai" rather than anime....

 

I think alot of the mis-informed either associate anime to the extremes... ie - the "fluffy" side in jedigoku's case, and the hardcore demon-porn in mine.. hehehe... :eek:;)
