Hey,

I was wondering if some of you could give me some tips on anime. I saw some avatars with some familiar faces out of some cool anime's and I keep looking for some new seires or films that rock.

The ones I already have or know (no particular ordening)
Cowboy bebop, escaflowne, Trigun, outlaw star, evangelion, of course dragonbal, chevalier de zodiak(have ni clue to the english name), Read or die, I know key the metal idol (but haven't found it yet). Chichiro, Mononoke, neighbour totoro, Porko rosso, Aikira, ninja scroll, fist of the north star, perfect blue, grave of the fireflies, blood the last vampire,Battle angel (books better) some of the less good ones wicked city, guyver these are all the ones i racall so do you have some good tips on new ones?

xd

oh yah forgot samurai X (the new ones and the (better) old series (have 5 of them, this is where he gets his scar <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> too cool)

as for movies; Nausicaa of the valley of the wind, Pom poko or the great raccoon battle, Castle in the sky, Kiki's delivery service (all four from the same studio that produce princess Mononoke & Spirited away), Ghost in the shell (innocence), Millenium actress, Metropolis, Steamboy (to be released in japanese cinemas this year), Tokyo godfathers.

I would advice Silent MŲbius. I especially like the little stories behind all the main characters. Their weren't necessary for the plot of the serie but they make it in my eyes great . SM has also a high grade of herkijkbaarheid (rewatchability ? ).

Another one I can advice is Weiss Kreuz . A lot of action and a somehow intresting plot . Here the main chars have also their own background wich is integrated in the story what makes it for me more intresting .

Gravitation is also a lovely anime but this one is more for girls I gess. A very high sap-grade but also a few dark sides are included. The perfect anime to watch when I just want to sit down and relax.

nice to see u again, polgara. anyway, being a guy, i do watch 'girlish' anime. cardcaptor sakura is a nice watch as well. just that i cannot bear the horrendous malay language dubs. wish they show it in japanese language with english/malay subs.

sakura wars may look like a 'guys' anime but almost all the heros (or should i say heroines) are females.

Noir is a good series, if a little slow.

Appleseed is a good moive.

Janggut: I think you might be somewhat interested in CLAMP's other works, as well (CLAMP is the team of mangaka that did CCS), provided that you don't get freaked out easily by the less conventional themes. (Hey, CCS has blatant homosexuality and borderline pedophilia, after all.) Some of their works are X (also known as X/1999 -- now this one's heavy: homosexuality, blood and gore, necrophilia, some very interesting exploration of human psychology), Magic Knight Rayearth, RG Veda, Tokyo Babylon, Chobits, Angelic Layer, etc.

Oooo....... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ohh.gif" alt="" />

may check it out; IF i can find them. which i believe, according to your description, will be zero chance. better luck getting fansubs, which isn't legal. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/disagree.gif" alt="" />

btw, what's CCS? i know CSS. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

wow! i must be as dense* as hollow brick to not pick up that paedophilic connotations though i did notice the homosexuality bit.

* i must be lucky! not as dense as red brick! woohoo! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

what i like about CCS (thanks, winterfox) is the relationship between sakura & her family & friends (of past & present). yeah, very girlish.

One of Sakura's friends -- a girl, ten years old, just like she is -- is in a relationship with a teacher of theirs. (That's ten-years-old girl and a twenty-something man. They go on dates.) Kaho, formerly in a relationship with Sakura's big brother, is in a relationship with Eriol. (Sure, Eriol's Clow reincarnated, but he's also in the body of a ten-years-old. Kaho is over twenty, considering that she's a teacher.)

Homosexuality: Tomoyo likes Sakura; Yukito likes Touya; Yue is arguably in love with Clow (although, since Ruby Moon's gender is uncertain, Yue's probably is, as well. He appears male, though); Tomoyo's mother was very possessive of Nadeshiko. Cross-dressing: Ruby Moon... well, Ruby Moon's gender is questionable, but it acts like a girl and Spinel Sun asks at one point why it doesn't wear a boy's uniform to school. (Ruby Moon's response is along the line of "But the girl's uniform looks so much prettier and suits me so much more!") Oh, and Touya is apparently bisexual, since he used to like Kaho.

Get used to it; most, if not all, of CLAMP's works have weird elements like these. CCS is positively tame. (Hey, no necrophilia. No overtly suggestive sexuality.) CCS isn't my favourite, though -- it's way too fluffy. I prefer X and Tokyo Babylon so much more.

"Vampire hunter D: Bloodlust" is pretty good. Make sure it's Bloodlust you get though. The first movie was called "Vampire hunter D", and it wasn't nearly as good.

Berserk is excellent as well. Best series I've watched so far.

Ah, GITS - SAC. I've watched all the 26 episodes of it, and am now watching the eleventh episode of the second season (2nd Gig).

Mmm. Long live fansubs!

You mean you don't...? So you have only seen the first four episodes of GITS?

Fansub is a product of someone taking the "raw" anime and subtitle it in English; it reaps no profit, no money, and is done only for collective entertainment.
