      If you like rape and snakes coming out of vaginas.

      Don't let that stop you from liking the movie, It came out of nowhere and absolutely kicked @$$.
      The rape scene was the only way that the first "demon" was weakened enough to be defeated. and I don't exactly recall the snake coming from her ******, I remember it being a tattoo that encircled her body and came to life...Ie those scenes weren't in there just for the hell or gratuitousness of it , they were integral to the plot.

      Gunsmith Cats is the only one that caught and kept my attention long enough.
      Hot chicks with cool firearms and badass cars. Yeah, that's a show for me.

      If you liked Cowboy Bebop, and you haven't already, try Samurai Champloo (subbed not dubbed)...you won't regret it

      El Hazard: The Magnificent World OVA is my favorite anime of all time. The english dubbing is fantastic, it's the only anime I've ever seen that I prefer in english. I guess that's not entirely true, the Cowboy Bebop series and its dubbing were incredible as well.
      Riding Bean and Dagger of Kamui are excellent old school titles, and thanks to youtube I'm up to Bleach Episode 43 in less than a week. I also want to continue Naruto (only at episode 47) and pick up Samurai Champloo. Alot of catching up to do.

      Many Bleach fans like myself are opposed to dubbing Bleach. Since the story is mainly centers around Japanese superstition and culture. Not only the dubbing is bad, the translations are awkward and difficult.
      They changed "shinigami" into Soul reapers when they translate as "Death Gods." I think the translators are afraid that it would offend Christians if they use "Death + God" together.
      Then all those special attacks like Byakuya's "Senbon Sakura" would sound really stupid directly translated into English.
      Ban-kai sounds really cool in Japanese, wonder how are they going to translate that..

      Any of you guys watch Rahxephon? It's basically the layman's Evangelion. Similar themes, but the animation is smokin' on it. After watching it, it's hard to go back to Eva, but Eva clearly has the better story.

      ...so close...less than 40 episodes behind. I will catch up...I gotta finish the bount arc still.
      Probably have to start reading the manga hopefully the local library carries it. I started watching the dub, and was fairly content, but it was once a week, so I just started watching it on youtube. I still watch the dub just to watch it since its the only thing good on tv at that time. But I do think the naruto dub turns me off, I cant get into it at all.
      ALso tried watching prince of tennis, but the way sports fictional movies are, they get too predictable

      though many people disliked the Bounto Arc...i still felt it necessary because as somone stated the anime can't past the manga...like it or not it made the Vaizard/Arrancar Arc well worth the wait...
      i finished Prince of Tennis last month (178 eps.) i have no life...
      currently watching:
      Prince of Tennis OVA's
      .hack//roots

      The Bounto arc is completely TV only, does not touch or effect anything in the manga. Its a filler since the manga is only a chapter every 1-2 weeks and each TV episode can cover 9-12 chapters in 25mins.
      I'm actually afraid that in 2 months the anime will go into filler mode again because at this pace, they will catch up to the manga. Probably why no episode last week.

      Ninja Scroll = Awesomeness

      Agreed. This is the only anime I own on DVD.
      It's actually pretty depressing to me that in the ~10 years sine I first saw it nothing has come close to Ninja Scroll in over all awesomeness
      I have to add that the animation in Appleseed is probably the best I've ever seen.

      CNs been cutting back on Anime lately. The keep having little things making fun of how they get no money out of it, like the one lately was about "If blah blah was like wall street what would it look like" w/ family guy, ATHF up top rising making profits w/ anime at the bottom at a steady 0
      The other was someone wrote in about why there wasnt much if any adverts for Blood+ and they just flat out replied about anime not bringin in money

      strangely enough I am enjoying the bounto arc. But a distant relative of mine got tired of bleach after the soul society arc. But he only reads manga, since he doesnt have time for watching the anime.
      I guess if it goes into fillers, it'll be like naruto with that 100 episodes of filler my friends all talked about.

      wow this thread popped up under my nose...good to see this here...i was worried there wouldn't be any anime fans here. ANYWAY i don't like much anime now because they are series and the whole point of a series is to rake in money. They are usually cheap and the story is dull. I like full movies or small series. The only large series i like (that i can think off from the top of my head), is
      Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex (amazingly done by my favorite artist masamune shirow).
      FLCL
      Samurai Champloo
      Dragonball z (up until the Mid "Boo" Series).
      FLCL
      Mahoromatic

      Movies..
      Nausicaa
      Princess Mononoke
      Ghost in the Shell (even though its not truely done by shriow)
      Ninja Scroll (movie not the series)
      Petshop of Horrors (IF YOU CAN FIND IT DEFIANTLY WATCH IT!!!)
      Grappler Baki
      AKIRA
      can anyone suggest some new anime movies for me to watch?

      for nausicaa fans: read the manga as well. the manga's better

      skimmed through it...you know the weird thing is...i've seen both the dubbed and subbed version and i liked the dubbed version better...even though its more "americanized", (less information on the story and more strength on the comedy). Im weird that way...but then again the first time i had scene it i was an child and didn't understand complicated storylines yet...so thats probably why.
