they looked more like characters from western cartoons of the 1930s.

It was done by the same fella who done Astro-Boy, so that's what they looked like.

Robotech: Shadow Chronicles

I was trolling around movies on Hulu when I saw this.  I'm a pretty big Robotech fan, so I thought I'd check this out.  Unfortunately, this film is pretty terrible.  The animation is decent enough, though a little to obvious on the CGI in some spots.  The worst part is the terrible voice acting.  Most of it is forced and the dialogue is cheesey in a lot of spots.  It is cringe worthy in a lot of places.

The story also doesn't stand on it's own too well.  I knew who a lot of the characters were because I've read the Del Ray books.  None of this background information is covered in the movie though, so I wonder if most fans who haven't read the books would know what the hell is going on with the story.

The last thing I will comment on is the new technology that the Robotech Expeditionary Force is equipped with in this film.  Apparently it includes breast implants for all the female characters in the movie.  They all have laughably big ta-tas.  I know this is an anime cliche, but it seems out of place considering that wasn't a feature of the original series.

Well, after trawling through some stuff on anime-planet, I thought I would be brave and watch Elfen Lied. There's a lot of gore-more than I thought there would be although I desensitised to it pretty quickly, and more nudity than was needed, but overall, I thought it was really good.

Given the number of (nested) spoiler tags in that message I'm not particularly surprised to find no pay-off at the bottom.

(It only takes the 'quote' button to see that there were no [img] tags anywhere in the post.)

I wish they still called anime "Japanimation" then I probably would have some slight respect for it.

Say what you want about that show, man.  Wendy Hoopes kicked ass!  She gave a performance that was right up there with the best of Tara, Tress or Cree.  Triple threat of Quinn, Jane and Helen?  The villain, the partner and the mom?  That means that like 70% of the show was just Her and Tracy Grandstaff.

Ok.  Back on topic:  How's Soul Eater?

Bamboo Blade

When I was looking for some new anime to watch on Funimation's YouTube channel this series caught my eye; I'd seen quite a few school based anime before but none of those concentrated on their sporting activities. While it may be based in the school's kendo club it isn't necessary to know anything about the sport before hand as it is fairly easy to figure out what is going on and the sporting activities just serve to advance the story as it is primarily a character based series.

The club's coach isn't having much luck, he can barely afford to eat and there are few people left in the club after a couple of older members intimidate new members without ever contributing to the club. Things change when Tama-chan joins, she may be a young girl but she has been practising kendo at her father's dojo since she was a small child and her strong sense of justice leads to her confronting the boys and easily defeating them, this leads to their departure and the team bonding together.

As the series progresses the members of the club train for a series of competitions which provide them with a series of challenges to overcome both in the sport and in their outside lives. The series contains plenty of mild humour and the action scenes were well done making the sport look pretty exciting. Being animated it could show the characters in ways not possible in a real kendo match; I liked the way the bars on their protective masks were shown as transparent enabling us to see their faces in a way that would not be possible with the real equipment. The characters are all likable and distinctive and while the main storey follows the five girls in the team the two boys in the club aren't neglecting and take an important role in the story. I really enjoyed the series and will certainly consider buying it if it gets a region two PAL DVD release.

These comments were made after watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.

Why didn't anyone tell me how awesome Stand Alone Complex was?

What, they did?

Well, anyway, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex is an absolutely top-notch show. And Tachikoma's are the cutest lil' things ever. And I want to marry the Major.

I feel bad because this is kind of like a plug.  To deflect that I will not include a link.  That said:  I just checked out funmation's youtube channel.  Those magnificant bastards have uploaded entire series on there.  Any FMA episode on You tube, right now.  There are many bad things I can say about funmation.  Lagging behind in joining the 21st century is not one of them.

Isn't The major a Gynoid?  They'll be pumping those things out like hotcakes in another 20 years.

This may result in the reproductive extinction of the human race, but we'll all die in the arms of Cybernetic supermodels.

I bet she was from a clone, though.

Soul eater

This is exactly the kind of Anime a 30 year old man should not watch, and that won't stop me.  Here are your run of the mill rag-tag bunch of ultra-cool teenagers with everything to prove.  They'll face impossible odds relying on each other, one turns into a weapon, while the other does the fighting, as they try to rid the world of evil people and eat their souls, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah; boob jokes.  If you've seen Shamanic Princess or the like, you know the skinny on the story.  Nothing groundbreaking in the plot, but the execution is pretty fun.  Fight scenes have that face-first punk-rock cartoony feel that FLCL had, plus there's a good supply of friendly nightmare fuel.  Everything in the choreography is ultra-slick.  The characters while falling back on their stereotypes are nothing too objectionable, if you can handle deliberately over the top delivery.  I also really like the atmosphere which is lofted somewhere between Nightmare Before Christmas and Majora's Mask.  So far (episode 6) pure fun visual fluff.

If you are in the US you can also see a lot of series on Funimation's Site. Some of their YouTube series are US only but not all, so if you try one and it doesn't work just try another series. They don't leave stuff up forever on YouTube so if the series you like is there watch it all fairly quickly... or save episodes for later.
