(*The last thread here was dead as of a month ago, and I didn't want to rez it, so . . . *)

I thought it might be fun for people to itemize their DVD and literary libraries for fun.

What do you own? What do you really wish you could own? What do you wish you could give away? Any recommendations for people new to anime/manga/hentai?

I see we have some overlap, Stereo. I've seen quite a few of the ones you list, or parts of them. I mostly have a number of Miyazaki movies (Spirited Away, Nausicaa, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, and Howl's Moving Castle), but I've also got Tokyo Godfathers; Steamboy; Metropolis; Now & Then, Here & There; Memories; and probably a couple of others I can't recall at the moment.

I do want to get Grave of the Fireflies, Millenium Actress, and the newer release of My Neighbor Totoro, as I have an old version that was released without the original Japanese, and the dubbing is mediocre.

I consider myself an all-around movie buff, rather than an anime fan, though.

If someone is curious about anime, I would definitely recommend they start with Hayao Miyazaki's work (Spirited Away is probably his best). It's the most accessible for someone unfamiliar with the style, and the recent Disney releases actually have quite good dubbing work, though the subtitled version is still usually better.

don't have a library of Dvd's to really share I am one of those people who can watch a movie once, watch a movie twice if needed, but can't watch most movie's a third time. so i have no Dvd's i just rent

As for anime I only watch Naruto even though it may seem childish I just got addicted to it and just have to keep watching it but i am able to control my addiction and stick on to Naruto

For an animation student, my animé collection sure is pretty lame. I'm a big Miyazaki fan (just got Nausicaä... it's awesome).

Practically everyone else on my course is way into Animé, and I really should start borrowing some of their DVDs, because if I find something I like, there's a whole lot more of it to find.

I've got Samurai Champloo, Fruits Basket, the first season of Inuyasha, and I had Trigun but my friend stole it back from me.

I want Cowboy Bebop, desperately.

stevenback7: I watch Naruto too, I'm 23, don't feel bad. It's a fun anime. Especially now that it's FINALLY in part two. [Smile]

Grave of the Fireflies is pretty good but it's also quite sad. I just can't bring myself to watch it more than once. I think I would have to really be in the mood to watch it again. I think this anime really gives you an idea of what things were like in post WWII Japan. If you haven't seen it yet and plan to, have a box of kleenex handy.

I'll have to go through my collection to see what I have and don't have. The ex had some anime that went with him when he left so I might need to fill in a few gaps.

I also have some anime series on VHS which I might, when I'm feeling rich, trade in for DVDs.
