Pretty cool to be able to meet someone in the acting business.
It is pretty cool, but at the same time, kind of shocking...she's like an OC neat freak...and has a hard time wrapping her brain around the concept that not everyone has the same opportunity as she does. Not a bad soul, just a little psychotic is all.

Well this is my first time posting to this thread.

I really don't care for anime because there are so many shows that are just repulsive, but I think I've come to really appreciate a certain few over the years.

One which I've just gotten into was Witchblade, which lasted for one season of 24 episodes. The visual effects were not the greatest and some of the characters were ridiculous, but I've become very attached to the story as it progressed. Unlike Cowboy Bebop, one character really developed throughout the series while the main character and her daughter had an interesting relationship.

The main character, Mesane, was a bit too childish for me, but she had a strength about her that became much more apparent as the series came to its end. She loved her daughter and it was their interaction that the very joyless individual, Takayama, became more concerned with personal integrity than in his company prospering. He was a very complex character to me and his growth throughout the series was very well done in my opinion. The daughter, Riohco, was only six years old and acted exactly like a Jedi. She was unbelievable as a character, but I had to give much credit to the voice actress because her lines were VERY well spoken. She would have been better being ten or older, but age had little to do with it.

Witchblade is not so great on an episode-by-episode basis, but if you see the entire series, many say that the series became more enjoyable as they went through to the ending. It had a sad ending, but it came to that end very well and it moved me... (alright, there were moments when I actually cried... I'll admit it was that great)

I think many folk who say that about anime, get the rough end of the stick from shoddy places like Adult Swim. Theres also anime out there that is only anime because it came from Japan. If that makes any sense.

Of course Darth, without knowing what genre you like, I cant make any reccomendations on what I liked in those same types.

Whoa, didn't expect this thread to get buried under all the others in such a short span of time.

I guess that I've seen some of the 'high end' Anime that my sister had bought. I liked CB, but the only other one I could simply stand was Trigun. She also had a lot of fantasy series which never aired in the US, I believe and not dubbed in English.

Witchblade took place in Japan, but I think the characters were close enough to American to be believable. I can't see Cowboy Bebop being voiced in Japanese, but a series in which takes place in a foreign state shouldn't be re-dubbed in English. That simply detracts from the anime because the dubbed versions often have terrible voice actors.

I have really come to like dramas where the characters take first stage; not the fantasy or sci-fci aspects. Modern or not-to-distant future plots are also what I prefer over other-world or super-exotic locations. I know that Witchblade and Cowboy Bebop have little in common, but I really like clever humor, character development, and I don't have issue with Japanese voice acting if it fits the setting. Any reccomendations would be appreciated

If you don't like Japanese themed Anime, then I'd recommend anime that doesn't take place there. I know that sounds pathetically simple, but it often makes english dubs and such more believable.

Cowboy Bebop and Trigun are the classics, but I recommend the new Hellsing Ultimate OVA series, Gundam 00, Maybe other gundams (but they are a much older taste of anime being many of them are about 30 years old), Gunbuster, Diebuster, FLCL, etc.

Mainstream anime that hits Adult Swim isn't always the greatest, but they are specifically chosen for their appeal to American audiences. I'd find a list of everything Adult Swim has played and just pick and choose between them.

Theres a new anime coming out called Shikibane-hime (translates to something like Undead Princess). Kinda has a resident evil (movie) feel to it. Not sure when it airs, I just saw the trailer the other night.
Lolol.

It's been out since October. The last TV episode has aired and the LAST episode comes out with the final DVD in August. It's an enjoyable series, however, try to finish season 1 ASAP. Season 2 > Season 1.

I actually like the anime version better than the manga! The characters and storyline seemed a little more shallow than in the anime.

The first episode of the new Valkyria Chronicles anime aired in Japan on April 4th. I doubt many of you here are very familiar with Valkyria Chronicles since most of you don't have PS3's, but it is arguably one of the best exclusive games for the PS3 right now, and Lynk will back me up on that. Anyway, they made an anime adaption of the game and having seen the first episode, I'd say it's definitely at least worth checking out if you're a fan of the game.

If you've played the game, then the art direction will seem a bit off for you, and so far they take a few liberties with the story, but for the most part it still holds some of the game's charm so far. While the anime will probably focus on the main story and characters of the game, it looks like it will really flesh out some of the support characters that you never really got to know in the game. I'm not 100% positive but I think certain voice actors from the game, are reprising their role on the anime as well so that's cool. (fyi - the NA and EU versions of the game also had the Japanese audio)

So yeah, if you're looking for something new, check it out, and if you have a PS3 and you don't have Valkyria Chronicles I will gut you in your sleep, and I think GameStop is having a sale on VC for $30 right now, so get it. Also if you want to know more about the game, check out a review written by Lynk Former.

Edit: I just watched the trailer below, and kind of dumb on their part, but there is sort of a plot spoiler in there, so you probably wont wanna watch past the 2:00 mark of that trailer if you haven't played the game.

Did anyone ever end up following Viper's Creed? I heard it was by the guys who made Appleseed and thought it must be good by default or something? >.>

Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae's closing up and it's been a disappointing season. The plots were far-fetched, characters too wacky and the whole Jigoku Tsuushin company feels a whole lot less mystical than it once used to. Sad, but I still look forward to a Season Four.

If I had a PS3, that would be one of the first games I got. Do you think the Anime will make sense if you haven't played the game?

It's kind of too early to tell, from what I can gather having just seen the first episode it looks like it will be going over the entirety of the story, it doesn't look like it will leave gaps where you would need to have played the game to understand it. Just as an aside of sorts the game's main story unfolds over 18 chapters/stages give or take a few side missions and the anime is scheduled for either 24 or 26 episodes, so it is pretty easy to see how the story can be broken down. I would think the target of the anime would be to present the story as it is told in the game, but add the fleshing out of characters that played more minor roles in the game. I guess in short, I would think it'd be easy to follow along with the story without playing the game, even though you should play the game because it is awesome.

Hmmm, I'm gonna have to go with... Yes? I started Nocturne and haven't played it in a month, been so busy hopefully I can play it again soon. Wasn't there a Persona based anime already?

It took a bit of getting into, myself, I'll admit. An acquired taste of sorts.

You can get killer deals on it at best buy. Seriously. Get all 6 discs while they are cheap.

Sometimes things are a little uninspiring as compared to western animation works, and sometimes even for quality it sometimes pales in comparison. However, anime has a life about it that seems to keep pulling me back to it.

Eureka 7 is sort of a hi tech fantastical type of series...the kind with a life I sorta wished I had in middle school to high school. Ultimately, I found it was about ...humanity. Adapting and living. Times that change. Not unlike our reality.

Black Lagoon. You're a girl, so I think you'd love it that the main character Levy is so...bold. (I'm putting it kindly, here.) ---or it may just seem too odd. At the very least it's a lot like watching an action flick, just a hell of a lot funnier.

Also, IF you bother to look into the origins of witchblade, you'll find that it actually came from American comics--at least to the best I know. (have a few issues) Same sort of group that came up with Fathom, and even helped with Tomb Raider comics.

Also, if you want to sample anime in full without spending $$$, go to
www.anivide.com. VM me and we can chat if you want. I'd love to chat with you as one who likes anime but am not as into it as other people are. You won't have to worry about me innundating you with just...stuff.

Eureka 7...it's about the future, and a bit of sky surfing...and some odes to music tracks (kinda gets me since I have musicians in my family and, hey, I can appreciate that). Might not be all that appealing to you, but you never know until you give it a try.

Ranma 1/2.......... hillarious.

QFE

If you have Sci Fi, I think they still do show anime on mondays...ani-mondays.

Street Fighter is a good series for reaching American audiences. You can even rent from a video store.

I'd recommend Robotech as well. It's an older series. (I got a couple of comics from back in 1986 for a steal at my local flea market) Sort of like gundam.

Bleach...modern life ...with the supernatural and sort of samurai esque thing going on outside the mundaine life...and hillarious.

One piece...mix in pirates and that sort of time period, some samurai or ninja elements, some kung fu stuff...and a whole bunch of goofy loony stuff...some royalty...you'll get the picture.
Naruto...mmm Ask chevron 7 locke for more info. Then I'll give you my take.
Blood the last vampire (movie) or Blood + (series)
A cute young swordswoman chick living a normal life for a highschooler and coming to terms with her inner vampire. Japan based, but very American feeling considering the movie involved a plot with the US government.

I might say full metal panic and full metal alchemist (no relation).

There is. I only saw the first episode, but it's related to P3.

Wonder if I should resume....

Blood+ is based in Okinawa where there is an American naval base. Hence the heavy American theme running through it.

Witchblade started out as a Dark Horse comic series back in the mid-90s (I believe). So, its one of those odd occurances where the Japanese turn a western comic into anime. Though I think I like their version of Witchblade better.

Eureka 7 is great... but only if you watch it with subs. The dubs still make me gag. >.>

If both of you are looking for a Persona-anime, then trinity soul is not for you. If you're just looking for anime content related to Persona, i guess it wouldn't hurt.

I guess. What does it have? Just some Persona cameos here and there and few references to the games?

It has a similar concept and is set on the same world, but there is no Persona-switching, the Personas are more ethereal than corporeal when summoned, fights are lackluster, no Shadows, etc. Pretty much no reference to the game except for Akihiko who appears regularly after ep 13. It's also contradicted in a certain aspect by P4 so maybe it's not canon lawl.

It's less about kicking ass with Personas and saving the world (which is what the games are all about) and more of an analysis into the concept of persona itself. Still enjoyable though.

Watched through all the episodes of Hetalia: Axis Powers yesterday, there are 11 episodes but they are only 5min long. I though it was hilarious, the countries was potrayed in a good and funny way. The beginning of the show is a little chaotic, but it's get better later on. It's a web show, so it should be legal to link it here. I downloaded it to get better quality, but watch the first episode to see if it's seem interesting.

And today i finally started watching Maria+Holic, have seen the first three episodes but still haven't made up my mind if i like it or not. First episode was pretty funny, but the two other were more boring. Will probaly give the show one or two more episodes but if it still haven't picked my interesse i will drop it

@Ma ping: Watch the rest of Code Geass ^^

In the battle of kawaii, K-on! wins... Haruhi is definitely cool though. Love the series.

I might resume it, then.

I never said K-On was better than Haruhi.

And Yuki plays a Gibson SG, not a Fender Telecaster. You fail at guitar recognition.
