Well, people've been telling me to do this for a while now, and I've finally bothered to do it, so here's a thread about anime and manga.

Animes I really like(because I have no other way to start this, feel free to comment):

Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon---original Japanese version only, as the NA dub is horrid. Haruka and Michiru are partners, not cousins, any questions? Oh, yeah, and Fisheye ain't a woman.

Vision of Escaflowne---Zaibach Leopard Twins. Mechas. Need I say more?

Shoujo Kakumei Utena---the most messed up anime I've ever seen, and I love it. Juri is mine and Akio must die.

Nightwalkers---oh, I love it to bits and pieces. I don't want eternity, do you?

Shamanic Princess---it's a piece of free verse poetry turned into an anime, I swear. Besides, Tiara's hot.

Mononoke Hime---awww... da little funky forest spirits are so kawaii! And Eboshi-sama is too...

Manga I really like:

Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon---shoujo manga, plain and simple with really gorgeous drawing.

Clover---I'm not a product of a weird experiment, but I still like it. Is Lan cool or is Lan cool?

Ghost in the Shell---she's a cyborg in Spandex who's got to work under a little monkey dude. 'Nuff said.

Ranma 1/2---boy to girl, girl to cat, boy to pig, boy to duck, man to panda, and the list of odd transformations just keeps going and going, like the Energizer Bunny. I like the anime, too.

A, A'[A, A Prime]---mix up everyone's sex by strange genetic traits and put 'em in space with lost fathers and hang gliders. Boom, you've got X+Y. The other two stories aren't that great, though.

X(sold as X/1999 in the States, so the parents don't think they're buying the kiddies porn)---violence, hot priestess babes, Kamui, random combustion resulting in bath house hosts sitting on a tree branch, crazy priests who want to buy you okonomiyaki, blind seers with slutty sisters, computers in love with humans, the whole bit. Arashii is mine.

I know I've forgotten stuff, but that was my poor attempt. Type away.

I love love love love escaflowne, especially the movie, but the twins only have a small camio in that.

Have you seen Akira? It's very kewl. One of my fave's.

That mononoke one, is that the same as Princess mononoke? I love that one too.

And evengelion, but that's a really weird one.

Unfortunately, the first anime I ever saw was Shinseiki Evangelion. It's all downhill from there, you know... ^_^

Some I count among my favorites: the entire Marmalade Boy series (eps 1-75, yep!), Mononoke Hime, Himeko's Ribbon, the Utena movie, and...heh...um...Ebichu. Oh, geez, and there's a million more, but those are the one's I'm thinking of right now. And yes, yappapa, Ranma is a good one, indeed.

Mmm...I wanna watch Eva again now.

I'm not too crazy 'bout anime, but I'm head over heels about this site.
There are mannnyyy anime sites out there!!! animetop100.com is one, I think. I do like to look at some of it, but the names and words I find are hard for me to spell/pronounce/keep up with! It's cute, though.

I love anime, too! quick question for you, tho...

did you get the Setsuna part of your name from Angel Sanctuary? It's actually kinda like Shamanic Princess, so I thought you might be familiar with it, even tho I didn't see it in your list...

There's a man Chara. in it named Setsuna...you should check it out if you haven't seen it....

>>That mononoke one, is that the same as Princess mononoke?

Yeh. I love it, it's so cute, what with da widdle forwest spiwits, so kawaii... Ahem, yes, I like the Japanese version better than the dub, since I believe dubs are a crime against humanity. What can I say? Sailormoon was my first great anime obsession.

>>did you get the Setsuna part of your name from Angel Sanctuary?

Naw, from Meioh Setsuna from Sailormoon. She's so incredibly hot. I'd be safe in saying that she was my first truly favorite anime character. Just so drool-worthy. I haven't seen Angel Sanctuary. I just decided to not rent it, as it just looked a bit too strange and a bit too much like X. Speaking of X, has anyone seen the movie? It's awful. My best friend almost stopped watching it in the first five minutes. Her brother and I forced her to keep on watching, yet in the end none of us liked it.

I usually like the sub-titled ones better, but i've never had the opportunity to see the orginial princess mononoke. Have you seen the movie for Escaflowne yet? I love it so much. It's different from the series but it's really awesome.

The subtitled version of Mononoke Hime can be found on the DVD edition by choosing the Japanese language track with English subtitles. Eboshi-sama's voice is much better that way.

I haven't seen the Escaflowne movie, only the series, which my friend has on VHS, the whole shebang, and I think the series is great. You know they tried to dub it? It failed miserably--too much violence and illegitimate kids, not to mention the whole controlling destiny thing.

Yeah, my friend owns it on tape too, along with all the episodes from evengelion and the movie, and a ton of others i haven't seen yet. He has...i do'nt even know how many. maybe i'll check out the subbed version, but i own the other one so i don't really know if it's worth it.

I have actually seen escaflowne on YTV, and they cut out a few important episodes because of the violence and the voices were all wrong, and it just got me mad watching them butcher it.

I have a new one to add to the list. I just saw it last night and it's really kewl. It's by the director of "Akira" and the animator of "astroboy". Kewl, eh? It's called "metropolis" and it's one of my new favorites. Anyone else seen it?

Manga are comic books, basically. Anime usually refers to the films -- but correct me if I'm wrong.

With my limited experience, and even more limited grasp of the Japanese language, I'm going to have to choose Totoro as my favourite (but I think there's still Ranma and hentai stuff on my hard drive from former roommates, so maybe I'd like more if I bothered updating my video codecs to see it). And I recall both liking and being terrified by The Maxx, which is sort of an American anime. I KNOW I have videos of that, at least. My most favourite part, though, would be some of the music. Yoko Kanno's really worth a listen if you haven't already.

I saw Spirited Away last Friday and liked it a lot. It was beautiful and I found the story to be very enthralling; time seemed to fly, there wasn't a dull moment. I did have some issues with how it ended, not really the choice of ending, but...well, ! don't want to inadvertanly ruin it for someone! HAs anyone else sees it? Want to share?

yeah, I went to see Spirited Away. It made me feel all warm and squishy. My boyfriend thought it was weird, but he just chalked it up to being a Japanese flick. He liked it, though.

The animation was great and the story is definitely different from what's produced in the West. The dubbing was okay, but I prefer subtitles.

anyway, go see it, take a date, or take your little sister. it's something everyone can enjoy

Now, about that classic, Akira. Oh man. my friends and I had a conversation about anime, and well, we decided there's anime that makes sense (and i use the word loosely), and there's anime that doesn't.

Akira, ioho, falls into the latter category. Well, not totally, They Evangelion is totally nonsensical. but Akira isn't quite explicable either. I watched it with subtitles with two guys whose English isn't great, and my sister, who fell asleep during various parts of it. that left me to understand the whole thing, and I thought I did. That is, till they started asking me what was going on. Then I realized I had seen it, absorbed it, and not understood a cotton-picking bit of it.

It had a lot of holes and certain thngs oculd have been explained better. But other than that, it is pretty frickin' cool.

Which version did you see? If you saw the more recent DVD version it makes a lot more sense. Also, we recently got all the books...7 I think, maybe more, and once you read them it allll makes a lot more sense. It's an awesome movie.

And I agree Evengelion made no sense. I was so confused after I watched all the episodes and then the movie. Kind of left me with that "what the hell just happened" feeling.

Wow.....I didn't realize that there were so many people here that liked anime besides me!

About Akira..I saw the recent one on DVD with my friend and it was really good in my opinion, although she had to explain a few parts to me. I also read the first two books of the manga and thought it was good, but I liked the movie better.

Princess Mononoke is another of my faves...I simply LOVE the animation! it's really beautiful. The music's great too, and I just love those clicky heads!! (forest tree spirits, but I call them clicky heads cause that's how they sound)

Also...which do you prefer, dubbed or subtitled? I like the subtitled ones much better because in the dubbed versions, the voices are just plain SCARY! I think that's because the american voice actors make their voices a bit too high. I think they're trying too hard to imitate the japanese female voices, which tend to be higher than the average american female's voice. What do you ya'll think?

Evangelion is NOT totally nonsensical, you just have to see it about 6 times before any of it makes sense ;] And I didn't like Akira at all...I think I got it, but it just didn't do anything for me.

has anyone seen "perfect blue" its wicked!!
i saw metropolis (is that how you spell it?) i thought it was great! the part at the end where everything is going on and blowing up and all you can hear is the "i cant stop loving you" music? they got that from face-off. i love that bit.

would somebody explain to me what ghost in the shell is all bout? the moral, if you will? i've read the book, i've seen the movie - i just dont get it. uuh

i love anime and manga. i love the art - i love the stories... i love it!

but!!

the guy who runs my local comic book store does not. he says its all perverted (which i don't agree with) ok fine he has his views... but he stocks hardly any manga comics because of this. and there is a big demand for it where i live. he only sells it if it becomes popular. things like yu-gi-oh and pokemon and those damn spinning top things... if we want manga we have to order it through them. so we can't browse or anything. does anyone know any good sites where i can browse and buy?

cheers! great thread!!!

In good news, 'Spirited Away' won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. hurrah! It's back in cinemas, so check it out this weekend! I am now avidly seeking more Miyazake films. If you know of any, lemme know. I heard good, good things about 'Laputa.'

'Ghost in the Shell.' I saw that a year or so ago, and I still don't quite know what it's about. Something about a Robocop, cyborg sort of thing. It didn't help that I saw it after midnight and fell asleep for parts of it.

Cowboy Bebop is also in movie theaters now. I would like to see it. My sister is an avid fan. When I go home, she keeps me awake by watching it on tv at odd hours.

Wow! I didn't know there were so many manga and anime lovers. I'm a big fan of all of Miyazaki Hayao's work, so I love...

- Princess Mononoke
- Spirited Away
- My Neighbor Totoro
- Kiki's Delivery Service

...to just name a few.

I used to be a big fan of Sailormoon and Ray Earth. Chobits has always been one of my favorites because it's just so adorable!

Spirited Away

By no means a chick flick! It's such a nice movie that gets to the heart if you know what I mean
The summary:
Chihiro and her parents are moving to a new town, and on the way the get lost and end up by a theme park that is not working anymore. There, the father smells food and they find a little town full of restaurants. The parents start eating, and ignore Chihiro's pleas to stop. She goes around the city and find a big building, then she meets a boy who tells her to leave before it gets dark. She runs, and finds that her parents have turned into pigs. She then realizes she can't leave because the way is covered by water.
With the help of the boy, called Haku, a woman, Lin, and the man who works at the boiler rooms, Kamaji, Chihiro gets a job at the bathhouse for 8 million gods, which Yubaba the witch runs. Her name is changed into Sen and she has to struggle not to become a totally different person by having her real name stolen.
She learns a lot about the soul while working there, and even finds a kaonashi (no face) find happiness.
Then she can return home with her parents.

Very rough, but that's the idea
HOpe it helps!

Love,
Leni

girlnextdoor, Cowboy Bebop is a rocking anime. I got the Best Sessions DVD for Christmas, and I love it.

I've fallen out of the anime loop, mostly because in Canada, we don't have the Cartoon Network, and I miss out on all the cool anime, because most stations here play Pokemon, or YuGiOh, stuff that I'm not particularly interested in.

My friends and I downloaded Samurai Deeper Kyo on a whim, and its pretty cool if you dig samurai plot lines.

I love Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi. I saw it in Japanese, and Mononoke Hime a few years ago in the theaters, and while both are fabulous, I love Spirited Away much more. I never get tired of watching it.

wobblyheadedjane, I'm also in Canada and don't even have cable! I live with my boyfriend so we can't afford it...

Anyway,if you really want to get into anime again...you can always download them off of kazaa. That's where I got most of my anime (and also off bitTorrent). You should download some of the anime I mentioned, I'm sure you'd enjoy it!

They've got a MIDI of Ultra Relax. What more could anyone ask? I <3 Shinohara Tomoe, even though I can't really be bothered watching anime.

I just finished watching Chobits, a new Clamp series. It was really sweet Even though the guy is a bit perverted, but tries not to be the story is really nice So if you get a chance to watch it, do. It's 26 chapters long only

Love,
Leni
