when I was in college, I was introduced teh the great jappanese animé, but it sems like it has been ages asince somethign good has come out.

Princess mononoke rocked, but since then studio gibli has done done "disney" movies.

Ghost in the Shell was mind blowing and pre- matrix. Ghost in the Shell 2 was without any decent action sequences and wnnabe sci fi themed. ( the ideas were not mind blowing)

Akira, was great, but since then the studios have switched to a "cheaper" animé style. Any frame from this film is an art work in it's own right. But modern Animé seems to me like a cheap rip off version of teh art sytle that Akira was. I think it would be better for a japanese studio to pool thier money and come out with one great film a year than to come out with 4-6 films that S\/CK.

I have taken my Anime thirst to the series, to be honest. I am seeing again the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex season 1, season 2 will be next, and I must say I quite liked "Noir" too. As for movies, I don't know what is new, to be honest. Maybe I should.

There are a few good ones out. Elfin leid, Death Note. Cowboy bebop is one of my favs. I'm not as hardcore as some. I cant watch them with the subtitles and such.

The animé scene (so to say) has changed a lot it has become hard to find a nice "new" animé, I have almost given up and skipped to just reading mangas. But in the category of series i would agree on Elfen Lied, Blue Seed, Code Geass, The vision of Escaflowne (the movie is also pretty good, it's much darker than the series which was a very nice surprise, i definitely recommend watching the movie), Samurai Chammploo (for Edo era Japan and a bit of hip hop twist, it's just hilarious), Witch hunter Robin (because the soundtrack is just awesome)


(waouh and done with my first post [Big Grin] )

Yeah...my friends made a purist of me that way. ;P

However, I really haven't watched very much anime since my college days. (In part, fueled by common viewings with said friends.) I should probably throw more in my queue - find something novel for the summer. [Smile]

Speaking of Anime, here's what the well-dressed 21st Century Ninja is wearing.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
