i think i'm getting addicted to anime, so suggest me something good to watch.

Wow, that's like saying you like food, so suggest something good to eat. Give an example of things that you like about anime and I'll be happy to suggest some shows that I think you would enjoy.

so am i =D
what have u watched?

I agree with Prelude but I'll give a couple of suggestions if either of you need a starting point. A light-hearted comedy that's classic anime is Love Hina. A classic that's more serious and action filled is Cowboy Bebop.

Remember that there are all types of anime and it's not just for kids. Do a little homework before you watch a random show.

10-27-2006, 12:02 AM
The only anime worth watching is Dragonball Z. Teehee.

10-27-2006, 12:37 AM
I definitely would recommend Cowboy Bebop if not just for the absolutely amazing sound track. Love Hina's a good series and the mangas are quite humerous. If you're in to completely random nonsense I'd vouch for Excel Saga also.

Garfield and Friends - good ideas
The Simpsons - even more good ideas

10-27-2006, 10:30 AM
My favorites (in no particular order)
Cowboy Bebop
12 Kingdoms
Now and Then, Here and There
Ghost in the Shell:Stand alone Comples (specifically 2nd gig)
Haibane Renmei
Requiem from the Darkness
Argento Soma
Victorian Romance Emma :D
read the reviews on my anime list http://www.animenfo.com/myanimedb.php?userid=3730

There are more not on the list for some reason, if I find them I'll post my reviews.

What can I say, you flipped my switch

Naruto (episodes 1-135)
One Piece
Rurouni Kenshin
Love Hina
Full Metal Alchemist
Great Teacher Onizuka
Cowboy Bebop
Detective Conan
School Rumble
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

10-27-2006, 10:48 AM
oh, thanks for the list, indigo0086. i'll try to watch them all.
Prelude, i agree, i didn't describe what i wanted exactly. That's because i've just discovered how big anime world really is and i really don't know what i want/like. 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. Right now i'll watch anything, so just suggest something you like best.

...I didn't put monster on the list...

*jumps off building*

although a manga to anime adaptation it is one of the most compelling stories I've ever seen animated. No one holds a candle to Monster cliffhangers, appropriately named.

I see no "The simpsons" in the last two lists!!!
Do you even know, how many quotes of Homer Simpson there are in Cboard? :D

10-27-2006, 10:50 AM
The simpsons isn't anime, while it is one of the greatest works of animation in history (american or otherwise), it isn't what is generally accepted as anime.

anime is, well, japanese stuff.

10-27-2006, 10:53 AM
Luckily there are no japanese stuff in my TV channels atm.
It is just too... "silly action movie with happy ending" and no jokes... boring.

How did Japanese get a whole word for THEIR cartoons?

you obviosly havent' seen a lot, have you?
ok, let's not flame here. anyone esle can suggest something?

10-27-2006, 10:56 AM
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.

10-27-2006, 10:58 AM
yes! i've heard really great things about it! and i have it on my hard drive right now =)
ohh, and i also heard gungrave is pretty good..

Offtopic, but...

My favourite American Cartoons!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (the original series)
Batman: The Animated Series
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.

10-27-2006, 10:58 AM
My favorites:

1. Agent Aika
2. Najica Blitz Tactics
3. Ikki Tousen AKA Battle Vixens
4. FLCL AKA Furi Kuri or Fooly Cooly
5. Tenjho Tenge

10-27-2006, 10:59 AM
Dante, how could you forget futurama ? =)

10-27-2006, 11:05 AM
I still only like The Simpsons and Garfield and Friends.

Dante, how could you forget futurama ? =)

Regretably, I've only watched 1 episode. :p

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

10-27-2006, 11:16 AM
=) no i don't, but i it works with (!) too :)

10-27-2006, 11:18 AM
What does :wq do? :D

10-27-2006, 11:20 AM
downloads the best anime to my hard drive =) j/k
it's a vim command to save and quit

10-27-2006, 11:34 AM
Full movies worth watching:

Ghost in the shell
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.

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 :rolleyes:) 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. ;)

exellent suggestion, Prelude. i'll watch what i can get :)

10-27-2006, 01:00 PM
Just as a side note. Most of the stuff I recommend can be found on animesuki.com. If not, then it's been licensed and you need to pay.

10-27-2006, 01:17 PM
Do you speak Japanese, Prelude ?

10-27-2006, 01:22 PM
>Do you speak Japanese, Prelude ?
A little.

My Dad's got this friend who says he knows a little ancient Greek, by which he means that he knows enough to read the Illiad and Oddesy, in Homer's tongue, so how much is a little, Prelude, and how's that progressive story going on :p

Just enough to know how to answer that question so that I can maintain a proper level of etiquette while still avoiding the usual requests to "say something in Japanese". ;)

>and how's that progressive story going on :p
You'll see in the next installment. :p

10-27-2006, 01:42 PM
Gilgamesh is another must. I did a double take with that anime. When I first watched a few episodes I dismissed it because it looked wierd, then whne I came back a second time I marathoned like 22 episodes in one day. It's a great anime, disturbing towards the end though.

10-27-2006, 01:49 PM
>> You'll see in the next installment. :p

Looking forward to it :D Any chance I could get a copy of the last few installments? I think I've lost track of them.

10-27-2006, 02:24 PM
I like Hentai... :)

10-27-2006, 02:57 PM

I'm sorry, what are you talking about?

Watch Lupin the Third.

10-27-2006, 03:51 PM
You'll have to figure that out yourself, citizen. It's anime related though.

10-27-2006, 05:18 PM
anime confuses me =\

10-27-2006, 08:20 PM
Same. That's why I watch Hentai! :D You might want to watch some, if your over 18 (even though I'm 16) :)

10-27-2006, 08:27 PM
anime is silly

10-27-2006, 09:00 PM
Calling people nerds while you use linux and program... that is just wrong on so many levels.

Then again if you mean nerd as in the revenge of the nerds sorta way, then right on!

I watch Bleach religously with my girlfriend. Thursday afternoons I make sure that I get off on time and down load the new episode as soon as I can.

10-27-2006, 11:41 PM
I'd watch bleach but my parent wont let me dl anymore vids till we get a new isp without data transfer limits

11-01-2006, 11:27 PM
These titles are good:
1) Generator Gawl
2) Project Arms
3) Armitage
4) Berserk
5) Black Heaven
6) The Count of Monte Cristo (no, you haven't seen THIS one)
7) Desert Punk
8) Devil Lady
9) Elfen Lied (EXTREME blood/guts)
10) Gantz (EVEN MORE EXTREME blood/guts)
11) Neon Genesis Evangelion
12) The Vision of Escaflowne (series is better than the movie)
13) Full Metal Panic (there's at least 2 series of this and another one coming)
14) etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc

These hentai titles seem pretty popular:
1) Bondage Game
2) Stepmother's Sin
3) Bible Black (4 volumes)
4) Anyone You Can Do... I Can Do Better
5) Oni Tensei
6) Crimson Climax

I work in an anime store. It was my first exposure to anime, and I was hooked. I don't generally watch hentai (I liked the plot in Oni Tensei though), but I like the anime.


11-02-2006, 03:10 PM
Bible Black is the best Hentai!!!! I would reccomend it if your into Hentai.

11-05-2006, 02:38 PM
I like Bleach, Chobits, and Ghost in the Shell. There are so many ideas that could made from Ghost in the Shell. They already have that active camouflage at Tachi Labs. Chobits is...damn I want a perusakon.
