The Anime Thread.

For people who like anime.

MCEazy 06-22-2008 09:57 PM

lol, well jap powerpuff girls aside, lets list which anime series we're currently watching.

One Piece, Monster, Bleach, Naruto: Shippuuden, Urusei Yatsura, Azumanga Daioh, Getbackers, To-Love RU, xxxholic: kei.

Kalyx triaD 06-22-2008 10:11 PM

Did Naruto's 'All Grown Up' episodes hit here yet? I don't watch the show but I liked the jump in time, and it may have me play catch up with the series. Characters actually aging throughout a series is something I really like to see in animation (DBZ's Gohan being the most famous case). Bleach is something else I wanna catch up on, for some reason Rukia's design is 'attractive' to me.

MCEazy 06-22-2008 10:31 PM

no not yet, the first series is still playing here i believe (i rarely if ever watch dubs so i'm not 100% sure) It was awesome to see gohan go from a lil kid at the beginning of dbz, to 5 years old training w/ Piccolo, beating cell at 10, then teen gohan and Great Saiyaman, then being an adult in GT. Fuk u don't see character aging to that extent much these days.

I think it's the hair.

I usually wait for dubs, though the scripts gets hacked at times, I appreciate the efforts of our homeland studios bringing us some anime. Doing anime VO was a dream job of mine a while back (still kinda is). These days studios are much more respectful during translation, keeping original OP/Eds and scores as well as Japanese linguistics (-Kun, original names, pronunciations).

MCEazy 06-22-2008 10:47 PM

yes and it's certainly good to see companies out here trying to keep anime's intact from the move from japan to a north american audience, it wasn't always like this tho ie. cardcaptors :rant:

Kalyx triaD 06-22-2008 11:30 PM

lol I heard Cardcaptors got shredded, that and Yugio. I wouldn't have watched the series anyway but the changes were borderline disrespectful.

U-Warrior 06-22-2008 11:35 PM

Only stuff I've seen outside of adult swim is Akira, Steamboy, Tank Police, Vampire Hunter D, Steam Boy, and Grave of the Fireflies.

Although I do enjoy pretty much everything thats been on AS.

Akira FTW :D I really want to see GOTF, i heard it was really sad.

Vietnamese Crippler 06-23-2008 12:00 AM

I'm watching way too much crap to mention and quite a bit burned away on DVDs that I still haven't touched.

However, some notable mentions are: Bleach, Naruto Shippuuden, Code Geass R2, Kure-nai, Nabari no Ou, and One Piece.

Too bad Naruto and Bleach are in the middle of fillers right now :'(

4Kids came and raped, literally raped, Yu-Gi-Oh. I'm talking raped it so hard, it wasn't even the same show. They fucking had the balls, the balls, to totally ignore the first season because there were little to know card games invovled in those first episodes. So we never got to learn how Yugi and co got together and everything.

Very pathatic.

I got so pissed that they stopped it right in the middle of the Hueco Mundo arc, I just went online and downloaded all the chapters for the manga after the point they stopped :mad:

MCEazy 06-23-2008 12:43 AM

yeh i've seen pics of Nel's true form from the manga, she's fuken hot. Hopefully they'll end this filler arc soonish, it's kinda boring.

Drakul 06-23-2008 01:28 AM

I'm not a hardcore anime lover but I do love Urusei Yatsura, Dragonhalf and Armitage III.
I've tried watching others but I didn't enjoy them.

For Christmas, I got the Salaryman Kintaro box set. I think it's the entire series, actually.
On Christmas morning, when I was opening my gifts, I picked it up as it was still wrapped and my mum tells me my sister told her I liked it so I begin opening it and the first rip reveals its an anime. Not enough to tell what anime it is but enough to know it is one. I instantly think it must be a bunch of Urusei Yatsura, DragonHalf or Armitage dvds and start mauling the wrapping paper to uncover more only to find out it's an anime I haven't heard of. I appreciated the gift and the fact it was anime (at least my family know what I like) and gave it a spin the next day. I think I watched the first two episodes but I never got round to it again.

I might try it out again this week. Is it any good? I prefer quirky anime, usually.

U-Warrior 06-23-2008 01:35 AM

Bleach and Shippuden are the ones I'm following right now. Even reading the mangas every week at onemanga.

Drakul 06-23-2008 01:36 AM

While we're here and since I mention Urusei Yatsura, BBC3 dubbed a few episodes for the special "Japanese Weekend" they had a year or two ago.
They called it "Lum the Invader Girl". Ataru was voiced by Matt Lucas from Little Britain and a few jokes where placed in that only those living in the UK would get.

I've heard of it but have yet to see it, i know its something about a guy who used to be the leader of a biker gang but retired to have a family and now is a single father since his wife died giving birth or something.

MCEazy 06-23-2008 01:41 AM

jcmoorehead 06-23-2008 09:41 AM

Neon Genesis Evangelion is definately my favourite show. I managed to watch it without knowing anything about it so I didn't know how much people rated it or about the stupid merchandising by Gainax so I was able to enjoy it for what it was.

Watched the first Rebuild Of Evangelion film a short while ago and it was incredible.

Also a fan of .hack//SIGN, Ghost In The Shell (Film & Stand Alone Complex), RahXephon, Hellsing, Big O, Noir, Fullmetal Alchemist, Full Metal Panic, Death Note, Karas.

Anime is further proof that Japan is a country full of crazy pedophiles.

I was refering to the fact that they also stopped the story when it was getting good in the manga too. Just at a different point.

Well, at least the "filler" in the manga is 100% relevant to the entire story and it only lasted for 10 chapters :p

Back to the story next week hopefully :D

Hello, I am the only person in this thread that watches Yakitate!! Japan.

Requiem 06-30-2008 01:05 AM

I will only watch Anime if it is in Japanese with english subtitles.

That said, the only anime I ever liked:

Gungrave
Helsing
Gundam Wing (the -original- series.. fucking badass)
Afro Samurai (yeah I know.. not really anime in the traditional sense, and not in Japanese, but badass anyways)
Samurai 7 (I think that's the name)

And that's about it.. not big on it.. absolutely hate the kiddy-style stuff with over-exaggerated expressions and retarded characters. I dig more of the gritty realistic, or crazy dark stuff ala Gungrave or Helsing.

Same for me, there are very few series i've seen that are dubs (about 3-4 out of 193).

I love gritty realistic series like monster and dark shows like helsing and elfen lied but also love funny and or romantic comedy's like love hina for instance. I like to watch pretty much any genre of anime except for yaoi and most mecha.

The Genius 07-01-2008 03:04 AM

is ghost in the shell any good? what about blood+?

MCEazy 07-01-2008 03:10 AM

I found the blood + movie awesome and the series boring as hell, both GITS movies are worth seeing but I haven't seen much of Stand Alone Complex (the series) to know how good it is.

Redeemer 07-01-2008 12:53 PM

http://myanimelist.net/animelist/Mazzy_Sensei

Yes i am a nerd. If you havent watched Evangelion then you're a fool. Cowboy Bebop also owns, as does Gungrave and Trigun.

I havent seen any blood+ stuff. Ghost In The Shell movies are ok. Pretty over-rated in my opinion. 2nd one was better than the first.

Kalyx triaD 07-01-2008 01:34 PM

Ghost in the Shell is the shit. The first movie is cool and the second season of the series (2nd GIG) is special to me.

Can someone explain Deathnote to me in 50 words or less? I've yet to catch on to the series.

McLegend 07-01-2008 02:04 PM

Death note is the best Anime ever shown on Adult Swim.

Kalyx triaD 07-01-2008 02:08 PM

I see, I will begin to catch up.

Thanks for providing the site, i've been looking for somewhere on the net to put my anime list :D
