    Anime Anyone? (Top Ten List and General Discussion)

    Well, judging from how many people seem to like Anime around here, I felt this was appropriate. I was thinking of doing a specific show... but there is so much Anime, it would just be wasted space.

    So, I give you my top Anime list:

    1. Karin

    2. Bleach

    3. Love Hina

    4. Happy Lesson

    5. Inuyasha

    6. Dragonball Z

    7. To Love-Ru

    8. Sailor Moon

    9. Death Note

    10. Strawberry Panic

    Side Note:
    Don't know if this is what you wanted in the test forum, but I thought I give it a shot.

    I don't know if these shows qualify as anime or not, but there were some Japanese-made cartoons I remember seeing on TV when I was a kid. Back when I was in third grade (1966-67), WGN-TV had an afternoon kids' show on called "Rocket to Adventure." Hosted by a local actor named Ray Rayner (dressed in a cliched 50's-style space suit, of course), this show presented several different cartoon shows from Japan, all having an SF theme. There was "Gigantor," about a boy named Jimmy Sparks, who with his enormous robot Gigantor, went on fantastic adventures and battled a variety of bad guys. There was another one called "8th Man*," about a human-looking robot named Tobor who could run exceedingly fast and disguise himself as other people in the blink of an eye, just by willing it.
    And, of course, there was "Speed Racer," which I discovered in the early 70's.
    (*The show's title comes from the fact that Tobor was the eighth robot built by his human creator. )

    I haven't watched too much anime - besides the obligatory Pokemon back in 5th grade - but from reading about it on wikipedia, Ghost in the Shell looks pretty cool. I've never seen an episode, though, because it comes on at 4 AM on CN.

    Favorite anime, let's see. There's so many shows I like, even though I've only recently gotten more seriously into anime. Here's a short list, in no particular order:

    -Rozen Maiden

    -Cowboy Bebop

    -Black Lagoon

    -Chobits

    -Planetes

    -Ah! My Goddess!

    -Gunsmith Cats

    -Hellsing

    There's many more, but I can't remember them all and I'm at work so I can't check my collection. Btw, Mikey, I could recommend a couple of shows to you: Kanokon (new show, only three subbed eps so far), and Shuffle!. Shuffle! is based on an H-game, and it pretty much plays like a game, right down to the music (no H-content, though ). It starts out pretty bland and boring, but about half-way through it really gets into some serious drama, and revelations about everyone's seriously effed up pasts.

    Most reviews I've read for Kanokon were pretty negative, but I found it utterly hilarious. A well-endowed (naturally ) upperclassman infatuated with a weeny younger guy, and she's not shy about it. In fact, other girls in his class call the guy The Great Ero-King because of her shameless antics. Also, it turns out she's a fox spirit.

    I actually already watch Shuffle... It's good, but I don't exactly find it likeable... I don't know why, but I just don't.

    My favourite anime in no particular order: Cowboy Bebop, Rozen Maiden 1st season, Kekkaishi, The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi, Chobits, Ghost in the Shell and GitS: Stand Alone Complex, Minami-ke and Minami-ke Okawari, Shakugan no Shana 1st season, and Escaflowne.

    Honorable mentions: Serei no Moribito, Full Metal Alchemist, Gundam Seed, Samurai Champloo, Fate Stay Night, Lucky Star, Manabi Straight, Black Lagoon.

    On-going anime that will probably join my favs list once it's finished: Kure-nai.

    Bleach might have been up there, except the whole Bount-arc really annoyed me - extremely.
    Why is everyone who drives slower than me an idiot, and everyone who drives faster a maniac?

    I liked the Bount-arc. I thought it was a clever filler arc. It did have some downfalls, but other than that, I enjoyed it.

    So what annoyed you about it?

    I find it annoying/frustrating when characters take one step forward and two steps back. Though from my point of view it's more like Ichigo took 5 or 6 steps back. What I found most annoying was how Ichigo was suddenly getting beaten up by villains who used to be weaker than him. I would have felt better if Ichigo getting was getting beaten up by villains stonger than the bankai Ichigo.

    Though I have to say I just have an annoyance with the Bount-arc as a whole. There are individual parts I did like. eg. Hatsugaya.

    The only thing that annoyed me about it was that it added more "main characters"

    How many are there now? 50?

    I know it's a bad joke, but seriously, how many more backstories of characters do we need?
