    Although I'm going to break the rules a bit, but not by much considering Korea has a huge hand in animating a lot of so called Japanese animation, is a Movie called Wonderful Days. It's a beautiful Korean Animated, Directed, and Produced Sci-Fi movie. It's probably the biggest self-credited Animated work that has come from Korea and it's worth it's weight in gold. It's pretty rare to find, but if you're in europe, or import, the dvd is available over there.

    Offtopic, but...

    My favourite American Cartoons!

    • Silverhawks
    • Transformers
    • Mask
    • Centurions
    • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (the original series)
    • Spiderman
    • Batman: The Animated Series
    • Animaniacs
    • Tiny Toons
    • The Simpsons


    Yeah, a lot of them are from the 80s and early 90s.
    For some reason modern cartoon animation in the USA isn't as attractive as anime anymore.

    Regretably, I've only watched 1 episode.

    Oh btw, don't you need an exclamation mark (!) at the end of the wq command?

    Full movies worth watching:

    Ghost in the shell
    Appleseed
    Pat Labor ( 1 or 2 )
    Jin Ro
    Princess Mononoke
    Perfect Blue

    "Steam Boy" and "Wonderful Days" are both on my shelf waiting for a rainy day.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    >So far the best things i've seen are `ghost in the shell`, `death note` (3 eps), ohh, and ranma 1/2 is pretty good.
    GITS is good, Ranma annoyed me after a while, and Death Note so far is fab. If you like the anime you should read the manga as well.

    Let's see, recommendations. Since you like Ranma, I'd say Tenshi na Konamaiki. The art is funky, but I tolerated it and found a really good series. Bleach is good, but the voice acting in the recently started English dub SUCKS! If you can get a hold of the Japanese version, do so. I always recommend Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu because it's just plain good, and if you like that then you'll probably like Shuffle!. If you like mystery/horror (somewhat like Death Note), Higurashi no Naku Koro ni is good. I'm a fan of Outlaw Star, but it's kind of hit or miss, and Cowboy Bebop is good. One that a lot of people miss out on that turned out to be pretty entertaining is Dragon Drive. Be on the lookout for Utawarerumono in English (I think the name is something like Shadow Warrior Chronicles ) because it's very good. I was thrilled and dismayed to hear that it was licensed because the story was just starting to really take off in the fansubs. Inuyasha is a story by the same person who did Ranma, you might like it. I'll mention more as the come to mind, I'm not thinking anime right now so I probably missed several great ones.
    My best code is written with the delete key.
