Sure was.  It was originally a series of shorts shown on Liquid Television (the same program that brought us the first Beavis and Butthead cartoon).  Later, Aeon Flux became its own half-hour program, also shown on MTV.

Also the Animatirx episode done by the Aeon Flux guy was Maticulated (or whatever it was called, the one where they try and bend one of teh robots' the the human side.) not world Record

Matriculated is the word you're looking for, I think.  I haven't seen The Animatrix, though.

Oh, and "the Aeon Flux guy" is named Peter Chung.  If you're a fan of his work, I'd recommend Reign: The Conqueror.  It's an animated retelling of the life of Alexander the Great, with some weird sci-fi elements thrown in.  It's great stuff.

Lupin the 3rd looks quite interesting, I'm into amusing anime the most. Tell me more if possible.

Regin: The Conqueror is the most homosexual display of faggotry ever. 

Lupin the 3rd was decent.  Somewhat funny and fujiko (spelling..) is hot, so plus there.

and my favorite is Cowboy Bebop... Cowboy Bebop bitches!!!

I can't have a favourite anime, the same with music and games and other stuff in my life. You are forcing me to choose between the oddness of Excel Saga and the Coolness of Bebop? Or the pantyshots of FLCL against the rip roaring gun action of Trigun? Begone I would say.

Chung also did the Riddick animated video. Looks like it sucks balls, but visually I'm sure it's gorgeous.

It's like an animated version of those Inspector Clouseau movies.  You'd probably like it, Nurdy.

I haven't seen that.

Chung also did the original opening animation for The Rugrats.

That's an interesting idea, Pitt.  Now that you mention it, Meryl and Millie are somewhat similar to George and Lennie, and the setting is rather Grapes of Wrath-ish.

I don't know if we're allowed to post someone else's review, but here goes. Just something ignorant (and funny) I found on Amazon.com, read and enjoy.

Princess Mononoke

Please! Stop flinging me eco-babble disguised as entertainment for once!! This is perhaps the definition of an overrated disc and in my opininon is very offensive. Parents be warned; while the rating of the movie is pg-13, it clearly deserves an R (unless you think decapitations and bloody regurgitations are peachy for junior). And seriously, who do these asians think they are feeding me and my children their filthy paganism? Pig gods? Umm... no. Pigs are representative of satan, but thanks for trying, you devil-worshippers. Luckily I was able to stop the "movie" before my children suffered too much, but I had to take them to church afterwards, just in case. Don't be fooled; this yet another sad conspirator in today's "entertainment" biz, less intent on positive, constructive morals than on cheap (yet profitable)corruption of our nation.

We should send him a copy of Kite, or better yet some Hentai title and see what kind of a review he igves it.... would be entertaining!

Incidentally I see Trigun and Excel are finally out in box sets; ticks me off since I am exactly half way through Excel and am going to have to pay full price for the rest of it. The two Nadia boxsets that just came out are a real bargain also. $40 for 20 episodes and 2 soundtrack DVDs...not bad!

I've got through all the episodes of NGE, just need to pick up End of Evangelion somtime. I hope it clears up some of the stuff from the series, I'm still in the dark about most of it.

Anyway, Virgin have some Anime in their current sale. What's the verdict on the following:
Generator Gawl
King of Bandit Jing
Gasaraki
Full Metal Panic!
Noir
Najica Blitz Tactics

EDIT- And Martian Successor Nadesico.

Out of those, I vote Noir.  It's the only one on the list I've seen all the way through.  The first few episodes are a tad redundant, and the animation is a bit stodgy, but the overall arc and characters back it up in spades.

Look for numerous Leon refrences.

Lurrr: Only one I've seen is Noir and I reccomend that one. I've done some homework on most of the others though. Before I buy any anime I check them out pretty thoroughly, the only one you listed that I have not looked at yet would be Najica, but I believe Nerdlingus said that was pretty good. Of the others I would say Gasaraki and Nadeisco looked the best to me, but check all of them out yourself, everyone has different tastes in anime,and it is a broad enough medium to satisfy nearly all of them.

That applies to you too M0le; if you have not liked what you have seen in anime/manga you need to try harder! Figure out what genre you like the most and look for it,anime is very broad in what it has to offer.

I have not posted what I've been watching lately so I will update now.  wink Finished both Bubblegum Crisis series, and liked them both quite a bit. I am a sucker for cyber-punk though.  love

Watched the entire Outlaw Star series, the wait was worth it! Very much reminded me of Bebop with some of it's themes,but has it's own voice. I liked the way the story was more continuous then Bebop,but it did make the 'filler' episodes stand out like sore thumbs. Other then a perhaps too happy ending I really,really liked this one a lot. If only they had left that first, bohemian-like ending in there...

Also got my hand on the Boogiepop Phantom set. They said it was a bit like Lain and I have to agree, but it really is it's own monster. The time jumping aspect of the plot really played hell with my ability to grasp what was going on.  frown This one is like Lain in that you will probably need to see it a few times to get it all straight in your head. Pretty good but can be quite creepy in spots. I reccomend it not simply because it was decent overall but because there are really not that many horror-oriented anime out there, so this is worth a look. Also they way the blurred the edges was an interesting animation choice and definitely had an impact, if you are interested in seeing various forms of animation. Made it quite surreal at times.

I still don't see why people compare the two.  Aside from the fact that they're both anime, and they're both sci-fi, I don't see many similarities.

Some of my favorite episodes were the 'filler' episodes.  I think they did a good job of balancing between the ongoing storyline and the stand-alone episodes.  At no point during the series did I feel that the characters were wasting time when they should have been searching for the galactic ley-line.  Yet, at the same time, there were plenty of episodes that were self-contained enough that someone who had never seen Outlaw Star before could enjoy them without needing a lot of explanation about what was going on, or who the characters were.

But thats just me! Don't take my word for it, I like it because of its abundance of panty shots and cheesy action scenes, perfect Stella material  big grin

Noir on the otherhand is excellent aside from the flashbacks, but I find they're only really that bad on the first disk.
Hopefully they'll make a sequel (yeah right) or an OVA or whatever to tell what happened next, kinda of an epilogue or something.

I've said alot about macross 7 recently, and now that I've seen the whole series (and focusing specifically on the last 3 major episodes, I'd say it just might be running neck and neck with this for corniest ending to an animated production.

Well I finnaly got round to watching Masakai Kajishima other anime "Duel: Parrallel trouble adventure"

I did enjoy it alot but I do wonder if Kajishima can do an anime series that does not involve the main male character to be surrounded by a harem of women. This is not the only similarity to the tenchi series (even the light hawk wings make an appearance). I will alos say it shares alot with Eva at least with the style of robots and how the combat sequences are shown.

It is a fun little quirky series and I do recomend it. Also the similarites to Tenchi may not be coincidental. The fact that the final robot in Dule looks almost exactly the same as the one in GXP and even has the same abilites.

On a final note. I would also like to recomend Peace Maker Kurogane. ##It is one cool anime.

The similarities to Tenchi and Eva were intentional.  I've heard Dual described as both a cross between Tenchi and Eva, and a parody of Eva.  There's more to it than that, however.  The parallel universe aspect isn't taken from either of those series.

The appearance of the Lighthawk Wings did take me by surprise, but it was a pleasant surprise.

I haven't seen GXP yet, so I can't comment on any connections between the two, whatever they might be.

OK... Now I'm confused. Which thread do reviews go to? This one or "Anime on Trail"?

Anyway, if you guys liked NGE for its religious undertones, I reccomend "Haibane Renmei". I'd post a link to my review on it, but I'm feeling lazy.

BTW, does anyone notice that torrents are getting slower and lesser these days, or is it just me?

Any anime thread will do I think except for the picture thread which is usually quite arousing I mean, interesting.

Anyways, my question, could someone recommend me a film/series/don't really give a shit what it is aslong as its
  • Futuristic
  • Violent
  • has bad language
  • more violence, including blood n' guts
  • the occasional sex scene
  • etc, etc, etc..

I need some hardcore anime and manga, problem being is that I don't get much spare time these days to spend trawling through every review on the net - the shame eh?

I haven't got around to seeing Macross 7, but your comments make me feel OK about not shelling out the money for DVDs.  Macross 7 has a pretty pronounced love/hate dynamic to it among Macross fans.  One of things I like most about the original Macross is the "believability" of it.  I can believe music as a culture shock, but not as some actual weapon as it seems to be in Mac 7.  The mecha designs also seem goofy to me.  Pink girly mecha?  Mecha with guitar parts for controls?  They seem more Gundam than Macross, which I don't really care for. 

If I could see the series on the cheap I'd probably check it out, but I'm not interested enough to pay good money for it.

This thread started out as a review thread and as it predates the other, I think reviews can go here.

Now a question. Does anyone know about Hanaukyo Maid Tai? Just wondering if it is worth my effort.

Also I have been trying to track down information on the live GTO series. All I know was that it's finale was the most watched show in Japanese history.
