Default Let's talk about anime!

Yeah, I didn't even know how to pronounce anime before, now I'm addicted to it. So I was just curious about who all watches and likes what animes. Here are the ones I've seen (the first two being my faves):

InuYasha
Cowboy Bebop
Chobits
Wolf's Rain
Ranma 1/2

The last two I have only seen a few episodes of, but...yeah. Which ones does everyone else like?

In full agreement here . Take a look at Ghost Hound, which also involved Masamune Shirow, creator of the GitS awesome universe (don't forget the third movie: Solid State Society), it's a very special thing. A deeper version of "Serial experiment Lain". I would label it "mature anime" (not in relationship to nudity or swearing, but rather the content and topics covered).

<*^_^*>

Loved that!

I watch tid-bits here and there, I haven't the money to buy anime, nor the time (or connection) to torrent it. However, I watched:
Flame of Rekka
Naruto + Shippuden (skipped the crappy filler)
Bleach (skipped filler)
Basilisk
Parts of GITS:SAC 1st Gig
Noir
Evangelion
Pokemon
Big O
Witch Hunter Robin

And, of course, Yu-Gi-Oh the Abriged Series from LittleKuriboh, over on YouTube.

I like anime, particularly how it's not all 'kid's stuff'. Animation is the media for many tales to be told. I mean, you wouldn't knock Animal Farm just because it's a cartoon, that's not for kids.

hehehe Nice ideas guys! If it's okay, I'm gonna add some funny quotes that I like too from my two fave animes:

Cowboy Bebop:
Spike:
  • How much is this? *confetti explodes in crook's face*
  • You take too long to take a shit!
  • Bang
  • I love the kind of woman who can kick my ass.
  • *Swordfish crashes in front of taxi* Hey, taxi!
  • What's the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge.
  • *oil drips in front of Spike* Don't do that!
  • *Spike has a hangover and is playing with an egg. Egg spills because someone ran into him. He punches the guy.* You spilled my egg. I needed that egg.
  • My ship works better when I kick it.
  • There are 3 things I hate - kids, animals, and women with attitude. So tell me, why are all 3 of them neatly gathered on our ship?!
  • *Ed jumps into a vase and fits perfectly* She's a trained seal. Maybe we can sell her to the Martian circus.
  • *Elektra says not to lay a hand on Vincent* How about a foot?
  • I'm just watching a bad dream I'll never wake up from.
Jet:
  • Shit! This piece of junk!
  • Spike, you slug! You could check in once in a while!
  • That's really unique, Faye. Is that a mugshot or your version of Picasso?
  • And so ends another episode of Wasting Time with Faye.
  • It's not like I'm old enough to be your father! I mean, I could be your boyfriend! Ugh, open mouth insert foot.
  • *Faye blasts out of the Bebop with her own ship* You're supposed to open the hanger!
Faye:
  • And so ends another episode of Wasting Time with Jet.
  • At least uncuff one hand! I can't even go to the bathroom this way!
  • You know the first rule of combat? Shoot them before they shoot you!
Ed:
  • Lunkhead, lunkhead!
  • I think I know, I don't think I know, I don't think I think I know, I don't think I think

Julia
  • It's all a dream...

Vicious
  • You shall shed tears of scarlet.

InuYasha:
Sesshomaru: So Tetsusaiga has gotten heavier.
InuYasha: It's a lot heavier you stupid jackass!

Kagome: SIT!!!(x20 or so)
*rock falls on InuYasha's back*

Kaede: Get off ye duff and find some information on the Sacred Jewel!
InuYasha: In case ye haven't noticed, my back is out of commission thanks to all those sit commands!

Kaede: That imitation was pathetic.
*InuYasha falls off fence*

InuYasha: Miroku, show a little effort and get off your butt!

Chobits:
Teacher: You're average-sized.
Chi: Hideki is average-sized!
Hideki: Chi! You don't have to remember that!

Ranma 1/2:
Akane: What, me? Marry that pervert!
Ranma: What do you mean pervert?!
Akane: You saw me in the nude you lech!
Ranma: Wait a second, you walked in on me! Anyway, you were taking a good look at me too! Besides, it's nothing for me to look at a naked girl, right? I mean, I look at myself all the time. And I'm better built to boot.
*table slam*

My favorite :
- Bleach, I love the opening songs.
- Chobits, always makes me laugh
- Full Metal Alchemist
- Inuyasha
- Saiyuki
- Escaflowne
- Kenshin
- Love Hina
- Cowboy Bepop
- Hana Yori Dango (although I prefer the book than the anime)

I used to love Naruto, but it got boring after a while.
