.hack//dusk legend of the twilight's bracelet is not really a sequel to .hack//sign...but it does take place after it...

" Shugo and Rena are siblings who were separated when their parents recently divorced. Even though they don't live together anymore, Rena has the perfect solution: they can spend time together in the online game The World. Shugo and Rena are the winners of a prize campaign, receiving the character designs of the renowned players Kite and BlackRose. Like those heroes of legend, Shugo and Rena's true adventure in The World begins when they meet the mysterious girl, Aura. " from animeacademy.com summary by Madoka

it's a quality show...less episodes than .hack//sign and it feels a lot lighter, but underneath it there is a great serious story line...check it out... :)

You gotta love Hellsing, of-course. It's the anime that reaches everyone. Also, Trigun, FLCL, Evangelion (WAAAAH MY HEAD JESUS MY HEAD), Ghost In The Shell and Naruto.

ok ok, and Dragonball Z. I confess.

I guess I fall into the Sci-Fi & Anime fan club, though I just started really getting into anime about a year ago. I'd have to say my favorite anime is Cowboy Bebop. I also like Trigun, Inuyasha, and Crest of the Stars (my choices are limited to what is shown on cable here in the US).

Both my sons are into alot of the shows on TV {they preferred Digimon over Pokemon,btw}.I admit I get a kick out of a lot of it.
My younger son[11] draws alot & he's got several books on drawing in this genre.He's pretty good ,too.

I do have a question,though.What is the difference between "anime" & "manga"? I'm thinking anime deals with the film medium & manga deals with what's on paper such as books & magazines.Am I correct?

I've got another question.What is it that defines "anime/manga" from other "cartoon" forms?What is it that makes it "anime/manga"?

Has anyone seen the new cartoon on the "cartoon network" called "Megas XLR"?I watch it with my sons & get a kick out of the way they poke at cartoon cliche's & other shows.Last night they had fun with across between "Power Rangers" & "Battle of the Planets".It's also gone after fight promoters portraying that character as a "big head" & tiny limbs.
Btw,David DeLuise[Pete Shanahan] does the voice of "Coop",the lead character.:)

Anime and Manga are two different things, however Anime/Manga is PROBABLY, anime based off of manga, such as......Fooly Cooly, I think that's based off of manga if I am remembering correctly.

I wanted to see XLR, but I can never seem to catch it when it's on. I read about it on animation insider (http://www.animationinsider.net) , and it seemed like it would be very entertaining.

most anime is based off manga...there are only a few exceptions to that rule where manga is based off anime that is out there. i guess the real difference b/w anime and "cartoons" is that anime is made in the asian countries and have a certain look to them that other countries can't replicate...>.<

I remember watching Blue Marine No. 5 (I think that's the name) which was great, utilizing CGI and anime. I also used to watch the original Gundam a little, Princess Mononoke was great and the Animatrix. Other than those, it's not really my bag.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force anyone?

Is Hamtaro Anime? Seriously, I don't know anything about this term, other than I see it related to a lot of sci-fi forums..but I am getting a great education from all of your posts! My family watches a lot of cartoons, but having a 4 yr old, we mostly watch Nickelodeon cartoons like Spongebob Squarepants and such.. but she does like to watch Hamtaro and I was wondering if that fell into this category.. we also love Speed Racer. I hope I didn't sound too naive in this post!

It's very simple:
Anime = Japanese animation.
Manga = Japanese comics/"graphic novels".

I understand the difference between Anime & manga now.I basically was wondering about the difference betwen that particular art form as opposed to other artistic styles.I know the artform originated in Japan,but is there a set of "technical" guidelines as to,say,character depictions & representations{i.e,large eyes,tiny nose &mouth}?
I mean I've seen some cartoons with a lot of "oriental"names in the credits,yet, they didn't quite strike me as looking like the usual anime I've seen.Particular show names escape me at the moment{figures:rolleyes: }.
Or is it a simple matter of where it's produced?Sorry to be a pain,but I find this artform facinating.Thanks!:)

i'm such an anime fan its rediculous...i've been into anime for almost 10 years now. in fact i'm a japanese major as well. my interests in anime have dwindled and my interest for the past 6 years is in japanese music...

but i still love anime...here are my favorites:

Tonari no totoro (my neighbor totoro)
Bubblegum crisis (the new one, not the old one!)
Fruits Basket
Marmalade Boy
haibane renmei
lain
last exile
cowboy bebop
tenchi muyo
sen to chihiro no kamikakushii (spirited away)

i've seen like over 2000 titles..my ex boyfriend worked for AIC (they made tenchi muyo and el hazard)

i also loove manga..but i only read my manga in japanese so you may or may not know these titles:

hanazakari no kimitachi e
eroica

there's others but i could make this list three miles long...

yeah hamtaro is anime. just like our tv shows here in the us, there is anime for adults, inbetweeners, children, and toddlers. hamtaro is aimed towards toddlers/children.

While those kinds of character designs are very common, they are not 'requirements' for anime/manga. If it's Japanese and it's a comic, it's manga.

Sailor Moon ended after FIVE COMPLETE SERIES, so I'd say it was it's time.

Though I am annoyed that they didn't bother to air the final series on television. They say that it was because of the three new sailors introduced that actually disguised themselves as men in their human forms, and then became female when they transformed.

They already had done some damage to the shows that got onto the air. They made a male character a female (because this male, Zoicite, had a romance with another male, Malachite), they made two female lovers, Uranus and Neptune, into extremely loving *cousins* and... I forget the rest, but suffice it to say, they changed some stuff.

Yes, you need to check alot more out.

Anime Covers a wide range of genra's from western to Sci-fi. And thier's NO shortage of Sci-fi in anime.


a SHORT list of personal favorites (all in Original language, I avoid dubbing in general [with a few exceptions where they actually are doing direct translations, but usually it's a horrid hack up - ie Sailor moon])

Naruto
Gundam (all of em)
Kenshin
Shamen King (non Foxtv version)
Trigun
Macross
Bubble Gum Crisis
Ghost in the shell (film and tv series)
Inuyasha
Ranma 1/2
Tenchi Muyo
and so on, and so on.......

I'm a fan of pretty much the more popular animes:
Dragonball Z (Hostile, it's nothing to be ashamed of, it's an anime classic)
Dragonball
InuYasha
Rurouni Kenshin
Gundam Wing
Witch Hunter Robin
Miyazaki Movies: Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away

Well, I don't watch a lot of anime, but I've seen enough to have a personal top-five:

1. GTO - Onizuka is simply the single coolest fictional character, ever. There's a lot to like about the anime in general, but sadly it pales in comparison to the manga series it was based on (plus it ends halfway through the story and tries to make up for it with a rushed tacked-on "ending" which is not from the original story and leaves a lot of plot threads left hanging). Aside from that, I love it. If I'd never read the manga I wouldn't really have an issue with the anime version at all, I think.

2. Figure 17 - I won't recommend this to everyone, simply because I know a lot of people will probably be bored out of their minds. Me, I love its leisurely pace and subtly progressing character development. Also, the action sequences, while never really the focus of the story, get pretty cool (and tense!) towards the end of the series. It's got great music, too.

3. Azumanga Daioh - Because it's hilarious. In an extremely weird way. But then, I'm kinda weird. Never really cared for the opening song, though.

4. Kare Kano (aka. His and Her Circumstances) - This would've made it higher up on my list, if the second half of the series had kept up the quality of the first half. It's got a great atmosphere, likeable characters and a storyline which keeps you watching. Oh... and great music. It's just so unbelievably frustrating that the second half of the series is not up to par. Not only is there an overall drop in quality, but - what the £¤%!! is up with the constant re-capping??!! A series only 26 episodes long does not need a clip show! And certainly not after only 13 freakin' episodes! And most certainly not a clip show that is comprised of 100% clips with no new material what so ever!! And especially when this goes on for not just one, but one episode and a half!!! And especially when there already is a lengthy, extremely excessive re-cap of the entire story thus far at the beginning of every stinkin' episode!!!! ...ahem... I did mention that I actually like this show somewhere in there, didn't I? :o

5. Grave of the Fireflies - This probably deserves to be on top of the list, but since it's a list of my personal favorites rather than a "all-time best" list, it will never get there for the simple reason that I can probably never watch the whole film through again. I've seen it twice (once before and once after I bought the DVD), and the feeling it left me with, both times, is not exactly something to be described as "pleasant". To put it mildly. But it is a great film.

Now... Why I am even typing this stuff up? Who's gonna care, ever? Answer: I'm bored. :D

the haven't got any of the mature stuff as yet like cutey honey or tale of the overfiend, but i'm currently watching some classic Battle of the Planets...

don't know if any other cable provider is doing this with their on demand services, but comcast users that like anime, check it out!

Anime is animated manga, mostly with parts of the manga left out. That's why manga's better.

Anime:
- Hellsing
- Tekkaman Blade
- Tekkaman Blade II
- Teknoman
- Gundam Seed
- Gundam Seed Destiny
- Guyver
- Generator Gawl
- Gundam Wing
- Dragon Drive
- Angelic Layer
- Neon Genesis Evangelion

That's what I have atm.

Anime is animated manga,Actually, anime = (Japanese) animation while manga = (Japanese) comics. Not all anime is based on pre-existing manga.

mostly with parts of the manga left out. That's why manga's better.Yeah, I noticed this big-time with my all-time favorite, GTO. I liked the anime when I saw it, then I checked out the original manga and it was so much better. (I'm glad I watched the anime first though, that way I got to enjoy both versions where otherwise the anime would probably have been dissappointing.)

Finally, an anime thread! Thank you! *worships SHIN*

I LOVE anime in almost all forms, from the mecha of Eva to the high school relationships of KareKano to the insanity that is DigiCharat. The only ones I can't tolerate are the super-sugary cute ones and the "harem" ones (Tenchi, etc).

Let's see, I'm currently working on Full Metal Alchemist (excellent), Witch Hunter Robin, and the Read or Die TV series (also excellent).

Anyone seen Paranoia Agent? I'm debating whether or not to get it.

Also, anyone seen either Ghost in the Shell 2 or Steamboy? I heard both were quite nice visually, but lacking a tad in the story, especially Innocence.

Other anime is DBZ but I grew out of that during rhe Buu saga, it got to repetetive and boring. And then they ruined it in DBGT when they turned Goku into a kid :S

i had a small infactuation with digimon at one time... i liked the first season, S2 was ok, S3 sucked, and S4 had a good theme song...

a good classic is Sailor Moon, and i'm talking bout the unedited version with the hot, nude, female monsters, and Uranus and Neptune are a lesbian couple (and not cousins).... but i have to say, my all time favourite anime is Thunder Cats.... there's nothing better

big anime fan here!! :D as MG said, we dont really get alot here in England :( but my favs are dragonball z, fav sage is probably frezia saga. DBGT is just not good, the animation is terrible and the plot is a bit odd. also i love gundam wing, i watched gundam wing endless walz a couple of years ago but i'm gonna try and buy it seeing how i dont think toonami is planing on showing it again :rolleyes: also i love escalflowne, its such a shame it was so short though! i've heard that there is a movie out using the same characters but a different plot so i'm gonna try to look into that...

the only Gundam series i liked were G Gundam, which doesn't follow the other series, and Gundam Seed, which is supposedly an alternate universe to Gundam Wing.... my friend is a huge Wing fan... she knows all the True names of all the piolets, including that one that is like the most sought name in anime history, Trowa's i think, or it could be Duo or Maxa.... i don't remember, but i'll ask....

she wasn't in S3.... S1 is from the beginning til they return to the human world for good... S2 is when Kari and TK are in Middle school and they have the digi-eggs and Gatomon digivolves to Nefertimon and Patomon digivolves into Pegasesmon.... S3 is when they have all those new kids and digivolving is called digivolution and they have to slide those blue card through their digivises.... and S4 is when those 5 kids are in the digiworld and actually turn into digimon.... they each have certain element and Human digimon form and Beast digimon form..... i've seen all 4 seasons.... the first season was really long and that kinda through me off, especially the airing sched for the new episodes... but as long as TK and Kari were little kids and Matt, Sora, Izzy, Mimi, Tai, and who am i missing? anyways... any episode with the original 8 digi-destined is all the first season....

SM is so erotic and gory, that half of the episodes couldn't even been aired in America cause of censoring, hell they weren't even translated... no my friend, if you want to see the true SM, you have to watch it in the original Japanese.... i think there are even a few hentai scenes.... oh, and i look almost exactly like Saturn, except i'm fatter and darker....

YuGiOh is starting to get redundant and predictable, and even though you can tell dual masters is older than YuGiOh by the technicolor quality, i find it them too similar.....YuGiOh, like DBZ, has been Americanized and has lost all the original appeal it had when it was first produced in Japan... as a matter of fact, Japanese animators don't consider YuGiOh, DBZ, and even Pokemon, as Anime, but rather American kiddie cartoons now-a-days

i dunno, but Tommy Oliver was one hott Ranger, even if he did like the tights too much, i mean seriously, how many ranger powers can one guy take? first he's evil and green, then he's good and green, and he's good and white (loved his talking sword, Sabba, btw), then he's good and red (Zeo), then he's good and Red (Turbo), and he make's an encore presentation as good and red (Zeo) at the ten season anniverasary epi... and then he come's back one more time as a Dr. of paleantology and the Black Dino-Thunder Ranger.... Tommy must really like those tights.... i believe teh current season, S.P.D., is S13 **calculates different typre of ranger since 10yr. annaversary and now** yea, S13.... (yes, i know, i'm a huge PR geek.... that never ceeses to amaze me).... speaking of which, about 12 yrs ago, there was an anime on CN that came really late, like 0100, that was an anime version of PR, i can't for the life over me remember what it was called.... i was like 5 when it came on

My wife is a lot more into anime than I am. She'll go up to the anime festivals at Univ of Michigan every once in a while with her old college roommate. I like Cowboy Bebop, Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Digimon (seasons 1-3, never got to see season 4). I thought Lupin The Third and Case Closed looked good but only got to see a few episodes. For Anime movies, the first Ghost in the Shell movie was really good. Didn't care much for the second one but I can't quite put my finger on why. I really liked Metropolis. Just rented Steamboy the other day. That one was excellent. There was another movies I saw a long time ago that I really liked too. I think the title was Castle In The Sky or something like that. It's been a while so I can't remember exactly.

THREAD RESURRECTION-I haven't seen any recent anime threads, so I'll just try to bring back this one.
I just got volume one of Fullmetal Alchemist and I CANNOT STOP READING IT!! It's scary. I do the same thing with Neon Genesis Evangelion whenever I'm in the school library. Reading volume three of that stuff is totally weird;) . Anyways, I really like Neon Genesis Evangelion, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. I used to like DBZ but now I've picked up on something that really creeped me out (its about Nappa). I also finally noticed that while the fights are good, the plot is unbearable because they recycle so much, and not in a beneficial way, either. Mobile Fighter G Gundam is great, but I'm still waiting for another series along that timeline. Gundam Wing was good but it was hard to follow because of all the politics and the fact that the five Gundam pilots didn't seem to have other lives or interests in them. (But a Gundam would own an EVA:p ) Right now I'm exploring stuff through my school's anime club. (We've been watching Dual and DNangel)

If you have not yet seen Eureka 7, WATCH IT NOW! It was animated by the same studio that did FMA and Scrapped Princess, so the animation is top notch. It has the basic plot of young boy meets all-powerful mecha (that...surfs on air), but there's also a cast of interesting characters, great music, and yet another slowly unraveling, mysterious/evil military plotline that makes it an excellent anime. Haven't finished it though - only on ep 33 - so I don't know if the ending will be as strong as the rest of the series.

It's currently airing on adult swim on Cartoon Network, I think on Saturday nights.

Hey guys, I got a question. I'm not exactly an anime fan, but there's this show that I watched when I was younger that's, well, a damn good childhood memory. The problem is I don't know its English name.

Anyway, the story is about this young guy who creates a Gundam-suit-type thing out of clay, and some magic people turns it into a real Gundam-suit-type robot for a mission that the young guy is sent on.

The mission is this: there's a 7-levelled mountain nearby that's surrounded by a rainbow and it has been corrupted by evil dudes, and the young man's mission is to, obviously, defeat the evil dudes. Now, the main evil villain controls 6 evil henchmen who then control the lower 6 levels of the mountain, with the main evil dude controlling the 7th.

Each episode basically has our young hero, aided by a flamboyant girl and a gruff country man with a big chin, walking into a certain village on the mountain that's being terrorized by the henchmen of the leader of that level of the moutain. In order to defeat the henchmen, the young guy must summon his gundam-type robot with his sword, and save the day.

The chinese title translated into english word-for-word roughly says "Magic Dragon Fighter" or some such.

So...anybody know what I'm talking about?

When i finnished watching all my favourite sci-fi shows, i needed to find a new genre. I found sci-fi anime. Its not fairytales for children or stupid series for little girls as i thought. Although it was dificult to find the right animes for myself. Thats when i realized i could build a website for people like me, trying to find the right sci-fi anime. So far there are 10 series which i strongly recommend, can anyone suggest another series?

wow thanks!!! im a huge anime fan and a sci fi fan. so thanks.
Macross Frontier seems to be awsome anime. wanna see it. i heard from a guy know that gundam series are very complicated.

Macross Frontier was really good, but make sure you watch Macross Zero OVA first, because there's tie ins to the series.
Dennou Coil was a cool series set in the near future, I remember watching it around october last year and the Halloween episode was really awesome. I might have to see it again. :D Reminded me a lot of hack sign but better.

Oh I don't stick with strictly scifi anime. There's a a lot of good mahou, horror and fantasy stuff out there.

Sailor Moon and .Hack//Sign i consider sci-fi :) Those are good ones, too bad they ended though, haha... I liked Dragonballz, but other than that, i don't like that much anime.


Yes, you need to check alot more out.

Anime Covers a wide range of genra's from western to Sci-fi. And thier's NO shortage of Sci-fi in anime.


a SHORT list of personal favorites (all in Original language, I avoid dubbing in general [with a few exceptions where they actually are doing direct translations, but usually it's a horrid hack up - ie Sailor moon])

Naruto
Gundam (all of em)
Kenshin
Shamen King (non Foxtv version)
Trigun
Macross
Bubble Gum Crisis
Ghost in the shell (film and tv series)
Inuyasha
Ranma 1/2
Tenchi Muyo
and so on, and so on.......

Loved both DBZ and Tench Muyo as a kid. dont want to see the live action DBZ and never got into DB:GT. But i'm watching (re watching) Tenchi online now. :D. Ryoko can be my space pirate anyday :P :D

other than that, i don't watch any anime

Anyway whats everyone's favorite anime?

We'll i havent really seen many Anime's but i think it might a toss up between Ranma 1/2 and Naruto, but i might lean more towards Ranma 1/2

I do however intend on watching a bunch of new anime's next year :D

Naruto's alright, although I don't watch it. The last time I saw Yugioh was the end of GX. Never could get into the new stuff. It's sort of gone the way of Pokemon, overdone and all. That's just my opinion though.

I finished watching Highschool of the Dead 3 days ago. I really liked it but apparently it wasn't popular in Japan so there likely won't be a second season.

Atm I am tossing up whether to rewatch Desert Punk or rewatch Trigun.

I saw the posts about brotherhood too and I'd say definitely watch it. The two obviously start very similar because FMA did start with the original manga story but later got ahead of the manga writing so stick with it. I had friends who stopped watching it after the first couple of eps and later regretted it.

I accepted your friend request :)

I already started watching FMAB up to about episode 15, and i understand why your friends wanted to do that, not so much with brotherhood cus im really enjoying it,t but with the original i wanted to do this stop at about episode 5 or 6, i'm really glad i stuck with it :D

Don't know what Desert Punk is about so i will say Trigun as i watched that last year

Watched Ghost in the Shell movie last night, was decent enough, is Stand Alone Complex better or worse?

Both the original manga and all the anime versions can be quite heavy with its philosophical subtext, that is where does the soul begin? The 'ghost' in the title can refer to the soul.

Major Kusanagi is a full-body replacement cyborg, the only original biological parts of remaining are her brain and spinal cord. Also, there are androids that differ from Kusanagi in only one aspect. Their brains and spinal cords were grown in a vat and were programmed like a computer with highly advanced AIs.

If you don't mind the subtext, you might enjoy it.

FYI, the original movie has one direct sequel Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence.

Stand Alone Complex has 2 seasons and a movie. The second season is called Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG and the movie is called Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society.

The original movie and its sequel are not set in the same universe as SAC and its sequels. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - The Laughing Man is repackaging of certain episodes of SAC and Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG - Individual Eleven is a repackaging of certain episodes of 2nd GIG.

I'm a huge Yu-Gi-Oh! fan. I love Seto Kaiba and how he resembles Tony Stark/Iron Man. Actually, I don't know who came first.

Other than that, I like Peach Girl. I write fan fiction for both and I am also starting my first Stargate story: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2502044/K5Rakitan

I haven't been able to get into that sort, however I am a sucker for slice of life and then extremely gory. Polar Bear Cafe (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhJmK-58z_s), is my very very favorite but I totally dig Hellsing. Every time I go to Naka Kon (Anime Convention) however, they always pull out Ghost in the Shell, its funny thats its this iconic movie concidering Akira (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQnw35kR6Pw) is like a legend in Anime...perhaps I am too old as the release date is 1988 and Ghost in a Shell 1995. Hetalia (http://www.youtube.com/show/hetalia) is pretty funny as well if you are into history at all.

So been wondering this myself lately, if you had to chose the best anime opening what would it be? ie whats your favorite?

for me its a toss up between, nightmare - the world (death note opening 1) or sambomaster - seishun kyosokyoko (naruto opening 5), with asian kung fu generation - haruka kanata (naruto opening 2) & yui - again (fullmetal alchemist brotherhood opening 1) as runners up

honorable mentions are dragonball opening and also pokemon opening

I used to watch DBZ and a few other popular movies back in high school (a little over 10 years ago :eek:), but haven't watched much since. Recently watched Avatar The Last Airbender which got me interested so I've started watching Bleach. I have access to it via Hulu+ (with Subtitles) or Youtube (dubbed, but poorly). I wish I had access to high quality dubbed versions, as I greatly prefer this...especially when I'm doing other things so kinda half watch and half listen to the shows.

There are a couple of good sites around that just focus on anime dubs, i've been watching Cowboy Bebop & Neon Genesis Evangelion on there which i will finish both on saturday, now i've enjoyed Cowboy Bebop more than Neon Genesis Evaengelion however Neon Genesis Evangelion is really good too

As for Bleach Yeah i'm only a newbie to the show aswell i'm only on s4 seasons 2-3 were great but Naruto/Naruto Shippuden) is still the best anime out there (imo)

however i've yet to see inuyasha

It's the first anime I saw that wasn't Sailor Moon or Dragon Ball (Z). I like the characters more than I like the show sometimes, if that makes any sense.
