Yeah, there's a "SAC: 2nd Gig" series that [AS] is gonna air.


Also, I just came from seeing "Steamboy." It's a pretty damn good movie - though, I've been told it's exactly like 'Akira,' but as I haven't seen Akira fully - yes, I know, how shameful of me - I can't really judge on that particular bit. However, "Steamboy"'s pretty damned gorgeous - the detail is fucking incredible.

Damn, I really hope they relase Steamboy in the cinemas over here in the UK.

And yes indeed there is a second gig of Stand alone complex. So far I have seen up to episode 20 and it is bloody amazing

Also if I have not said so before (or even if I have) I tell you all to read or watch Bleach. Both the anime and the manga are amazing (it would be easier to catch up to the anime as there are only 28 episodes so far and 176 chapters in the manga).  A story about samurai like Death gods (shinigami), what's not to like?

OK, this thread totally needs more love for Elfen Lied.
Elfen Lied is seriously combating Full Metal Alchemist for my favorite anime.

I was going to describe the show myself but I decided to let someone better do it.  This is ADVs description:
 
Quote
Critics have described Elfen Lied as “weird,” (Anime Planet), “surprisingly sadistic,” (Gamerz Edge), and “addictive” (Animesou). No wonder, when you consider what makes this series hum! Lucy, a beautiful young mutant, is bred by the government to be the ultimate weapon. Armed with unfathomable powers, she escapes her handlers, but loses her memory in the process. Fortunately, our young waif is taken in by two well-meaning students. Now, with government killers on her trail, the disposition of a five year old, and a hair trigger for ultra-violence, Lucy and her young friends must unravel the dark secret of her legacy before it’s too late.

Elfen Lied is very cool and vert disturbing (the bit with the puppies was too much for me)

and speaking of violence, what do people recon are the best fight sceens in anime?

This is my list (in no particular order)

-Eva unit 1 and 2 vs 7th Angel (Israfel, the one that splits in two) -Neon Genisis Evangelion

-Rock Lee vs Garaa of the sand -Naruto

-Major Katsuragi vs that tank thing - Ghost in the shell

-Spike Spegal vs Vincent -Cowboy Bebop Knocking on heavens door

-Alucard vs Incognito- Hellsing

-final battle of Macross Zero

-Nicholas D Wolfwood vs Chaple -Trigun

-Yusuke Yurameshi vs Tuguro- Yu Yu Hakusho (dark tournament fight)

There are probably grat fights that I have missed but these are all good to me.

    Also in no particular order:

  • Maggie vs Sonny Wong - R.O.D. the TV
  • Spike vs Ed's dad - Cowboy Bebop
  • Max Sterling vs Miriya Parino - Robotech
  • Gene Starwind vs Aisha Clan Clan - Outlaw Star
  • Big O vs Big Duo - The Big O
  • Big O vs Big Fau - The Big O
  • InuYasha vs Sesshomaru - InuYasha (the first time they fight, when Sesshomaru loses an arm)
  • The battle on the asteroid - Sailor Moon R: The Movie (This is about as good as fight scenes get in magical girl anime.)
Also, I second Pitt's mention of A-ko vs B-ko.

That's all I can think of right now.

I tried to find out what angel it was and failed, but the fight that I always loved was Evangelion episode 19.  Not just one of my favorite fights, but one of my favorite anime moments.

I liked the Naruto vs Gara fight.

Also, if its just general fights:
In Naruto, the fight on the bridge was great

Ok, I forgot to add:
The fight in the directors cut of eva episode 23 (the fight with the 16th angel) always gives me the chills.  They did an awesome job with that.

Also, I did enjoy Angelic Layer, but the fights are too friendly I guess...

This thread has me watching eva again, which I havent done in a while  smile

I don't know if it's the shortest, Nurdy, but it's one of the most one-sided.  Spike isn't even in the same league.  Not even close.

Well, I consider it the shortest but then again it depends on the type anime you are watching. In Bebop or Trigun they pump a few bullets into the bad guy while in Naruto or Ranma they take forever to take the bad guy out.

my how could I forget

Spike vs Andy-Cowboy bebop

A stupid fight but fun all the same.

Well I jsut finished another series. I will probably give it a full review after I have let it sink in.

The series is called BECK and ye it is about music but not that Beck (although when the band get stuff released in America they had there name changed to Mongolian chop squard because of that).

I thought it was a really good anime, and if you can excuse the brief bits of Engrish then it is very watchable.

Too late Wu. Presenting, MrMayat review of..

BECK

Right from the opening, you can tell this is a different series altogether. The character design is very distinctive. Here we have people who look real, with girls and boys in different sizes, change clothes and wear different hairstyles. It is also commendable that they focused so much attention on the details of the instruments. The Gibson guitars look like Gibson guitars, and the Fenders look like Fenders. It is important to highlight the vast array of rock material that is included in this anime. Unlike other series, like Full Moon wo Sagashite, that focus on the music, this one does a better job of presenting a wider variety of songs, therefore making it less likely that viewers will get sick of one particular piece. The music groups used in the series, especially The Beat Crusaders, are very good at their craft. We even get a cameo performance by a favorite of many in the last episode. Suffice it to say, I won't give names.

One aspect which may be criticized is the pace. Although no one expects Beck to be "guns ablaze" since it is not action-themed, there are times when it feels like nothing of real substance is going on. There is also confusion about some of the characters: at some point we have a very relationship-oriented plot, and then it is suddenly forgotten, leaving you wondering why such an interesting element of the story was omitted. Another part that I found a bit puzzling was the ending; it appears that Studio Madhouse had constraints with time or money because they decided to use a very Gainax element and finish the series with plenty of stills. Don't get me wrong; it was done in a very tasteful manner but does seem a bit of a cheap solution.

All in all, the Beck experience is a very uplifting one. We finally have a story that focuses on popular music and exploits it well, without missing a beat on character development. If you want good music, then look no further.

A An anime for everyone who's always wanted to join a band, are playing in a band or just fiddling their air guitars.

David A: With a mentioning of the infamous Young Man's Cowboy Association and watching The Teddy Bear Bomber blundering time after time again as well as Jet dressed like some Neo-Stoner, I must agree with you.

Mayat: GASP! A review? I am shocked!
I'd like to see that anime at some.

Curse you Mayat, curse you six ways to sunday.

However I will agree with what you said. As such there is not much that I can really add. Only thing that could get annoyign was Maho's and Ryusuke's English but that was abit of a minor point.

I think one of the reasons it works well is because I could relate to it. I never formed a band myself but like the main character I do remember when I stoped listing to light hearted pop and started listing to more meaningful rock.

so I also give Beck an A

The Engrish parts were my favourite bits. It especially enhances the most awesome parts of the theme song too; like when they try to sing "You are the sun, you are the star" - Classic.

I LOVE the works of Osamu Tezuka, including Tetsuwan Atom/ Astro Boy, Jangle Taitei Leo/ Kimba the white lion, Black Jack, Hinotori/ Phoenix and Metropolis.

FLCL's pretty coolly  smile

And I went to Anime Boston last saturday. I met Melissa Fahn (who according to the IMDB, has changed her name to Meliss Charles? What the heck?), voice of Gaz from Invader Zim (a great show, IMHO, what do you think of it, David A., Nurbot and Wu_Konguk?), Eddie from Cowboy Bebop (who I took a picture with a woman cosplaying as her), Rika from Digimon Tamers, Betty Boop in a 1989 TV special called "Betty Boop's Hollywood Mystery" (which is available on DVD, BTW) and others.

It's a stage name.  Lots of actors don't use their real names.  Voice actors in particular often have more than one name that they use.

Invader Zim?  I've never seen it.

Eddie?  Her name is Ed, or Edward (or Francoise).  She's never called Eddie.  Have you ever even seen Bebop?

Also, I think it's odd that you'd mention both FLCL and Melissa Fahn in the same post without mentioning that Melissa Fahn was the voice of Eri Ninamori.

Well I was finnaly able to see the last two episodes so I can now do a review.

Tenchi Muyo Ryo ohki OVA 3

Well it took them a damn long time to bring this out. So was it worth the wait? Well in someways yes and some no.

The animations has been improved and the character models slightly tweaked but it does look very nice. The music is still as nice as it ever was so that was nice.

Now for the story. Well I feel this is the weakest of the three series (although that may change when i watch the whole thing through in order again). The whole thing was orginally billed as the Choujinshi war (goddess war) but that did not really feature til the final episode.

Some may also know that another character was added to the Tenchi household. Noike is the adopted daughter of Seto who is Ayeka and Sasami's grandmother. As for the character, well she is ok but they could of developed her more. In fact I would say that is the main problem with OVA 3 is the lack a true character developement.

The best was kept for last. Now while Kagato is still the best villian, Z wa still pretty cool. The battle sceens in the last episode were very cool. they also resolve a few things in the last episode but they also cause alot more questions to be created.

All in all it is still better than most stuff out there but it could of been better.

B+

Oh and as for who Tenchi choose

I've seen the first half or so of the series, and I'll probably get around to watching the rest of it eventually, but it's not really that high on my list of things I want to watch.

Despite what some people seem to think, Eva is not the be all and end all of anime.

Eva is an amazing piece of anime work and if possible should be seen. However David A is right it is not the be all and end all. Actaully I don't think there is any anime like that which is why I keep coming back for more.

Now for wu's you should try and see these anime list

Akira
Ghost in the Shell
Neon Genisis Evangelion
Beck
Princess Mononoke (hell any of the studio Ghibli films)
Tenchi Muyo
Cowboy Bebop
Hellsing
Trigun
Elfen Leid
FLCL
Grave of the Fireflys
Great Teacher Onizuka
Jin Roh
Macross zero
Macross Plus
Mahoromatic
Sai Kano
Ruroni Kenshi
Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust
Wings of Honnamise

There are probably more but that is a fair list for now.

As for Inu Yasha. I really have not been able to get into the show but perhaps I need to see more episodes (I think I have seen the first 30 so far)

Nice list (what I've seen of it anyway), but I notice some glaring omissions, like Crest of the Stars and Record of Lodoss War.

Yeah, you really have to see more of it than that to appreciate it.  There are major recurring characters that haven't even been introduced yet at that point.

Really?  In terms of story and pacing I thought that it was quite good.  It's like an animated novel broken up into half-hour long chapters.  Also, the relationship between the two leads was one of the most endearing things that I've ever seen on television, anime or otherwise.

This is something that I'd show to people who aren't even anime fans.

 
Quote

I have friends who claimed not to like anime before seeing Lodoss War, and are now anime fans.

It's anime that's directly based on Dungeons & Dragons.  That's two of my favorite things right there.  Plus, Lisa Ortiz is in it.  Three things.
