Samurai Champloo


That actually turned out to be a much better series than I thought it was going to be when I started it. It left me with a lot of questions and a desire to see more, just like Bebop, which I think may have been the point and the marker of a great story.

Enjoyed Nausicaa and Princess Mononoke(lot of cameo voices). Star Blazers series was one of my favorites- loved when they fired up the Wave Motion Gun.

More recently, my kids got me watching Attack on Titan. First season was good, then it seemed to get boring- less about the giant man eating titans and more about the human characters.

I also watched Soul Eater all the way through with them. Not bad.

I've been watching pretty all of it and just about every series mentioned since I was in highschool so for over 20 years.

Now that I'm in mid 30's and getting older I still watch about 5-6 shows per season with 4 seasons year round.

Been really cutting back on purchasing physical media unless I really liked it to death, just don't have the time anymore to rewatch shows now that I'm working 50 hour plus work weeks.

Been really into buying and reading light novels that a lot of the current shows are based off of.

Recently about 2 weeks ago saw in theaters The Saga of Tanya the Evil Movie it was a 1 night only showing across 500 theaters most were close to or sold out. It just came out in Japan back in late Feb and was brought over so quickly and was a hugesuccess. Been keeping up with the Light Novels so that I can continue the story until they make another season.

One series I'm really into recently that ended a few months back but just received the latest Novel is Goblin Slayer. Now this is not a franchise for the faintess of heart.

Their is a show for everyone but it's sad that many series just don't hold up today, or once they ended the buzz wore off and it's forgotten forever.

Good series.


The other one you are referring to was called Space Carrier Blue Noah. It was redistributed as Thundersub.

Did you guys see a live action version of Akira is in the works? I’m not sure how I feel about Akira being redone. It’s one of my all time favorite films and kicked off my obsession with motorcycles.

I can’t wait for the live-action Akira! Ghost in the Shell was so awesome I can’t imagine why they haven’t flooded the market with more live-action anime!!

Sarcasm aside, if they can replicate the magic of Alita: Battle Angel, great. Otherwise, people need to get drug out in the street and slapped silly.

Today’s audience can’t handle the subtleties of shows like Akira, Alita, Venus Wars, GitS, etc.

IMO these stories demand reflection, introspection, and the atmospheric presentation requires savoring.

I get that they’re out for money, but maybe things don’t necessarily need a live-action counterpart.

Wow, you mentioned Venus Wars! That's the anime that got me hooked on the genre.

So true. Comparing the storyline of Sailor Moon to the stuff on TV is like comparing the LSO to the Kardashians.

I have a copy of the Space Battle Ship Yamamoto live action movie. It was really faithful to the show in how the WMG fired.

Haven't seen that one yet.

I have seen the Star Wars Holiday Special. It is not as good as Captain Harlock. Hell it is worse than the commercials that accompanied Captain Harlock. The Kool-Aid man would have added more flair, then they could have used a Hawaiian Punch!

I used to watch more, but I still do. Some will recognize my long-time avatar of Gunslinger Girl Henrietta and her P239. I even ordered a P239 through the IOP because of that, although her pistol was 9MM and mine is 40/357.

Probably my enduring favorites are Serial Experiments: Lain and Haibane-Renmei. Really, pretty much any slice-of-life series or something not too fantastic is what I like.

Started watching Attack on Titan over the weekend based on the recommends here. Interesting show, got about 6 episodes in so far.
Only season 1 available on Netflix.

I had personalized TRIGUN plates on my car for two years. I let it lapse when I switched cars and someone else got them.

My daughter got me this for Father’s Day.

That's strange. They used to have both seasons available.

I saw only about 25 episodes for S1 on Netflix.
Looking on Wikipedia, there appears to be 3 seasons.
