Any anime fans? (in Off-topic)
I started thinking about anime while thinking about songs that make me smile ... I've been watching anime for a little while now and I just wanted to get an idea of who else at CB was into it. I like stuff like:
Those are just some of the more recent ones ... I'm not even going to get into the older stuff :P Who else is out there?

Full Metal Alchemist
That's usually what i watch.
Stuff I'd Reccomend.
Ghost in the Shell
Street Fighter (not alpha, the original)
Legend of the Over fiend (If you can get past the, er, adult side of things...)
Fist of the North Star
GitS: Stand Alone Complex
Magical Shopping Arcade (Watch the first episode only to set the scene. It sucks, the rest are brilliant!)
Final Fantasy Unlimited
I'm sure there's more, I just can't think of any more at the moment!
Hey, there's nothing wrong with the classics! Galaxy Express 999, Venus Wars, Robot Carnival....

ninja scroll is the bomb... probably my favorites.
Magical shopping arcade was great. Im big on the older movies like, Robot carnival, Lensman, L.I.L.Y Cat, Tank Police.
Full Metal Alchemist
thats about it

Ha. anime??? Apple-seed was good breaking ground for many films to come........ but chaps..... gilgamesh????. too spacious, Spriggan was pretty tight... Akira, still ridged. Gantz would be all right had it not been severely slashed by the "lights on nobody's home" people in editing. G.I.T.S. still okay.. although i still find something left to be desired. Someone please let me know if they find something outside of the typical moral driven storyline. :)

To Add To The List:
Rurouni Kenshin ~ Outlaw Star ~ Inuyasha ~ Wolfs Rain.
I was thinking of checking out Wolf's Rain ... you like it?
September 23 2005 3:54 PM EDT
The rest were mentioned from others all ready
Anything with big robots or Ninjas
I liked Wolf's Rain, though some people I know found it too depressing. Give it a try.
I heard that Wolfs Rain is from the creaters of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo.
My vote goes towards GL's suggestion of OnePiece, what a HOOT! that anime cartoon is.
For anyone not in the know OnePiece is a kid with a rubber body who is trying to become a renowned pirate. First part of the description kind of makes me think of that guy from Fantastic 4.

Samurai Champloo = sucks
Outlaw Star = sucks
Hajime No Ippo is my fav anime and 2nd fav manga.
Berserk is my fav manga the series good but nowhere as good as the manga.
Bleach love both the manga and anime.
Appleseed has the best animation but the story is a little lacking.
here's my list of most of the amine I've seen.

You can't really judge anime being sucked just because you didn't like it you know... I would say it 'not interested to it, or that kind'.
Samurai Champloo was pretty good for a samurai-action type of anime. (Although the rap and all that stuff makes it kinda weird, but it's supposed to be half comedy anyway). Seriously, if I have to choose between Samurai Champloo, Peacemaker Kurogane, Samurai Gun, Samurai 7 and maybe Shura no Toki, I'd choose Samurai Champloo or Samurai 7 anytime.
For me, I don't really like classic anime myself (like very old stuff, lupin, astro boy, and the like)

I just realized that GL mentioned Magical Shopping Arcade (Abenobashi Mahou Shotengai), it's really a crazy sci-fi parody, definitely one of a kind, great stuff.
Oh and not to forget, FLCL.
