    The Animatrix.

    So, who watched The Animatrix? I thought it was rad, and I normally
    don't even like Anime. I can't wait until the next installment comes
    out. I've watched the first one about 3 times. It's so great.

    It's like a prequel to The Matrix (done in Anime-form). This installment
    is about how the machines rose up against the humans.... It's
    really cool. There's an anime-boobie in it, too...

    It comes out on DVD June 3rd.

    it sucked, typical over-preachy anime. You can tell a cliche story without the cliche preaching.

    Considering its Anime your lucky to get away with a boobie - it could have been a tentacle.
