Yay! I got my copy of NGE: The Perfect Collection today. Unforunately it's in NTSC, but I can still watch it in black white if I fiddle with the tracking on my TV.

However, despite its flaws I prefer NGE to the majority of crap on the TV.

I've never heard of Mysterious City of Gold, played 7 Cities of Gold on my old commodore,does that count?  Guess not. Is that like Speed Racer era stuff David A.? Did it ever show in the U.S. at all? I think I must have been watching Marine Boy instead, it was my childhood religion...

Oh, and Wonguk, we get Wolf's rain on Adult Swim every Saturday, eat your heart out!  big grin I don't think I will be mentioning it in the same breath as Bebop though even if it is pretty to look at.

As far as I'm concerned, that counts.  I've always associated the two in my mind.  Of course, in the anime, the natives don't pop like balloons when you poke them.

Oh my, no.  The Mysterious Cities of Gold was made in 1982.  Speed Racer was first shown on American television in 1967.  That's a different era altogether.

Did it ever show in the U.S. at all?

Yeah.  If I recall correctly, it was shown on Nickelodeon.  This was back when Nickelodeon didn't suck, of course.

Yeah, Wolf's Rain is a great looking series, but for some reason, it just doesn't do it for me; which is odd, because I'm usually into werewolf stuff.  On the other hand, one of the characters is voiced by Sherry Lynn, so I'll probably keep watching it anyway.

Wolf's Rain IS very pretty.. But I find it to be very dull. It isn't quirky and distinctive enough for me to have enough interest in it. I'm more attracted to animation like Dead Leaves, FLCL, Excel Saga.. You know.

Techincally, it's not "werewolf" stuff, but I know what you're talking about.  Unfortunately for me, now that I'm home from college, I'm usually out Saturday night.  So I guess I'm stuck with seeing only the first two episodes of Wolf's Rain...until I get to a high-speed connection, that is.  Or when they put it on someother time during the week.

I knew that someone would try to "correct" me for using the word werewolf.  The wolves in Wolf's Rain may not be werewolves in the traditional "if one bites you, you turn into one when the moon is full" sense, but they are wolves who can turn into humans, and that's close enough for me.  They remind me of the Garou, from Werewolf: The Apocalypse.

Changing the subject, whats the Newtype magerzine like?
I'm thinking of getting a couple of issues on import so was just wondering whether it was worth it.
Or... is there a publication in the uk for anime?

Back to Wolf's Rain. I finished the series a couple of days ago. It is a very beautiful looking anime and Yoko Kanno's music is wonderful as usual.

It is kinda slowly plotted. Some episodes are great while others just drag along. One thing that bothered me was the recap episodes. Most animes have one recap episode during the series this had 4, one for each of the wolves (well except Kiba they gave his to the humans).

It was an ok series but no Bebop.

Now lastly I will say

Matsume ShirowGod of character designs
Yoko Kanno God of anime music
Production I.G Gods of animation

Put them together and you've got quite a pantheon for a series. Need;ess to say I am enjoying GITS SAC.

I'm not sure which Anime threwad to ask this, so I'll put in this one because I'm lazy.

I've got to episode 17 of NGE, but I have been told that it would be better for me to watch the two movies ('End of Evangelion' and 'Death and Rebirth') instead of the last six episodes or something. What say ye all, what should I watch?

Technically it is the last two episodes. The movie End of Evangelion is the last two episodes The movie is spilt in half with two sets of credits. The movie has the two epidoes Air and Sincerly yours/My pure heart for you. However I would suggest watching the whole thing as it gives a more rounded view of the series.

however I would not bother with Death and rebirth. Death is the series recapped (a few little extras thrown it) and rebirth is the first 20 mins of the end of Evangelion so totally not worth it.

You ought to watch the last episodes and then the two movies. That's what I did..
Anyway, Newtype is a good magazine with a visual emphasis. It comes with great omake and its subject matter isn't limited to anime. It's also quite big. That said it's too expensive for my tastes..

Thanks to the miracle of online DVD rentals, I finally got to see the first disk of Serial Experiments: Lain.  Good so far.

I've ordered the others.

Still have not seen all of FLCL and it is hellishly expensive with those #$%^& 2 episodes per disc!!! ...but I have seen enough to know me likey very much!

Go slow on Lain Melllvar, it will fry your brain if you are not careful. I don't mean the Excel Saga "Let's take a blowtorch to your brain" but more of the kind where you wake up in the middle of the night after watching some of it and you go "WTF? WTF was that scene again? WHAAAA???" Happened to me at least twice.  frown Had to explain why I was up at 3 AM playing with the DVD player. That series is messed up.It gets worse the second or third time through too, you start to notice things in the background and such that you missed before... Not a shippy fest at all though, I only remember crying once.

Sorry, I can't help you with the Newtype question Nerdy, the last magazine I had sent to me was 'Highlights' back in grade school I think.

I popped into HMV yesterday and had a look throught their Anime section. Some of them I'd seen. But I would like to know what peoples opinions of Helsing are. It looks interesting but I didn't know if it was a series or just films.

Hellisng is a 13 episide series. It is based on the manga by the same name. The series uses the first two books of the manga. From what I hear the manga's creator did not want them to make any more episodes unti he had finished the series in manga form. Thsi is a real pity because the series is really cool and highly recomended. (the mangas are better)

Lain was great I thought, I'm fully prepared to have my brain messed with for the remaining episodes.  When I'm feeling flush, I'll bite the bullet and buy them.

I just got through the Cowboy Bebop Movie, which I thought was pretty good.

The only thing better than the Cowboy Bebop TV Soundtrack collection is the Cowboy Bebop movie soundtrack. Yo Pumpkin Head is on constant repeat in my walkman.. Though the rendition of Ave Maria from Blue is unerringly beautiful..
Panties? In Trigun? o.O;; Uhmm... Not a panty-centric series, that..

I've had a look back through this thread, and going on Evan's review, I've ordered Neon Genesis Evangelion for rental.

I'm going through the volumes, instead of getting either "End Of Evangelion" or "Death And Rebirth".

I do have anime, but I've not watched it for a long time (just the usual: Akira, GitS, Perfect Blue, Wicked City, Urotsukidoji I, II, and III, Golgo 13).

 I second that Hellsing recc. Bigtime!...I just love that series. wu_konguk has a problem with the dubs for that one not sounding properly english enough for his british ears but as an american I didn't notice that. The dub is one of the truly best dubs I've ever seen, maybe THE best. The show itself has some really good characters and some truly stylish gore,nice soundtrack to go with it. If you like Vampire Hunter D and such this will rock you hard!

Totally agree with what Melllvar and Evilunch said about Metropolis; I've yet to see it all at one go but I did enjoy parts of it quite a bit. I really was getting into that robot detective too, such a pity. The soundtrack was decent too, that selection for the finale worked fine for me.   smile

edited: Melllvar, I hardly put Perfect Blue in the category of "the usual thing"... Is Golgo 13 any good? Is it like Lupin the 3rd at all? I'd like to get a handle on that show before I plunk down my piggy bank, opinions please.

With Hellsing I will say that some of the Brittish accents were pretty bad. I did however like Mr Freeman's Alucard. As wiht most anime I recomend the sub over the dub.

Anywho. I finished Ghost in the shell: Stand alone complex. I must say that i loved it. Teh characters seem a ittle more true to their manga counter parts adn the Tachikoma's are pretty cool. The animation is beautiful (as to be expected from Pruduction I.G) and Yoko Kanno's score is as wonderful as always. The plot is quite interesting adn I am very interested to see how they are going to progress the story in the the 2nd gig.

If you get the chace watch it.

now if you don't mind. I'm going to flood the anime pic post with soem of Mr Shirow's work.

I've lost touch with the new anime releases. (Damn you military service!) Anyway, are there any "must watch" anime right now? Currently "acquiring" GiTS:2nd gig, Gantz and Midori No Hibi.

BTW, I've something to confess. I've never watched NGE and Tenchi Muyo.  tongue

Me either MrMayat, don't feel bad. Heck, I've yet to see Trigun, which seems to have cult status in some parts now. Not a lot of "must see" stuff in region 1 that is new that I have seen. Some decent or better shows though, like Wolf's Rain and Witch Hunter Robin;I hear some people raving about Full Metal Alchemist but like GITS: SAC that isn't 'officially' here yet.

Right chaps, I have now finished watching the love to hate/hate to love Najica series.

I'll keep it short.

It was good, a dodgy, sad(ish) ending but with the impressions I'm given, thats quite normal for anime.
Either way, it was an enjoyable romp although sometimes I found myself cut between wanting either more panties or more story but thats just the way it is.
I wanna sequel to it, if not then atleast a movie/OVA.

You have to be kidding me! Trigun is a wonderful anime, and I'm sure a lot of people here would agree with me. The plot is fully developed, and the characters are always interesting. Ah, forget that. Just get the anime, and you'll see what I mean.   big grin

Perfect Blue I liked because it was kinda different.

I've not seen Lupin The 3rd, but Golgo 13 is not bad at all.

I have three vids of Aon Flux (they did the World Record section of The Animatrix, I think).  Pretty bizarre.

Aeon Flux was made for MTV (I went through a phase of getting the MTV Animation vids, including The Maxx, which I thought was great).
