Jesus Christ, that's a lot of fucking anime. And here I am not able to stand ANY of it.
why did you watch it all, then?

« #441 : 09-28-2010 06:04 »

Jesus Christ, that's a lot of fucking anime. And here I am not able to stand ANY of it.

What do you not like about it? I know it is not everyones thing. I was just wandering. I find well done anime more enjoyable to watch then a movie with people. Maybe you watched some really lame show. I do not know but I could recommend some good anime if you are interested in giving it another chance. The show "Cowboy Bebop was rated the best anime ever in anime insider magazine. You should look into it. I know the name is a little odd, but the show is amazing.

I honestly don't even think it's the writing or the voice acting (although in several animes I've seen those have also been a huge problem), but rather that the animation style just doesn't appeal to me, and the characters almost always seem unrelateable to me.

To be fair, I haven't seen many animes, just the ones that they show on Adult Swim and such, which I know is not a fair representation. I just have despised all anime I've had easy access to, which makes me wary of wanting to actively seek out and buy other anime that people tell me is better.

The animation style? Good to know that all animes look the same

Space Pope
« #444 : 09-28-2010 15:28 »
« : 09-28-2010 15:29 »

I didn't say they all looked exactly the same. But there are clear similarities in the animation styles of all anime, at least in every single anime I've ever seen, and I've seen quite a few. It's that particular look that's common between them all that I just don't really care for.

« #445 : 09-29-2010 01:07 »

I know what you mean, it is an art style. Your not the first person I have heard say they are not fond of the animation style. It is true however, that there is a large difference between artists.

You obviously haven't seen that many if you think that.  Does Shin Chan look like Cowboy Bebop?  Does Blood+ look like Astro Boy?  :nono:

DOOP Secretary
« #447 : 09-29-2010 13:48 »

yes, they all look the same, just like american animation all looks the same

What size HD tv do you have, I was just wandering?

Shawshank Redemption is a great movie, I have never seen North by Northwest.

« #451 : 09-29-2010 17:40 »

I have no TV... just a home cinema.

« #452 : 09-30-2010 01:35 »

I do think that you should try and get into the storyline. Do not focus so  much on the animation if it ruins it for you. Let yourself get drawn into the story line. You may find yourself enjoying anime. If everyone watched the right kind of anime, I think they would enjoy it. It is just a matter of finding your niche. The next thing you know you might start liking other genres of anime. What animes have you seen that stick out in your mind. I am curious.

Wait what is a home cinema, maybe that is retarded question. I was thinking of like a lcd tv and surround sound. I am quite confuzzled.

DOOP Secretary
« #453 : 09-30-2010 01:40 »

Surround sound and a HD projector + canvas.

« #454 : 09-30-2010 01:44 »

Wow that sounds feaking awesome. What does a HD projector coast? What size canvas do you have? One more question, then I will stop:). Is that as clear as an HD tv, or a little less?

DOOP Secretary
« #455 : 09-30-2010 02:31 »

it's at least as clear, if you have a proper projector.

« #456 : 09-30-2010 03:25 »

I think I am going to look into this. It sounds bad ass.

Space Pope
« #457 : 09-30-2010 04:18 »
« : 09-30-2010 04:48 »

That I can think of, I've seen Death Note, Bleach, Naruto, Fullmetal Alchemist, Dragonball Z, the movies Spirited Away and Howl's Flying Castle, um...I know I've seen others but can't think of them right now.

The only one of those I at all liked was Spirited Away. It was okay.

You obviously haven't seen that many if you think that.  Does Shin Chan look like Cowboy Bebop?  Does Blood+ look like Astro Boy?  :nono:

Just thought of a way to prove my point. Find me one anime that if I looked at a screenshot from it, I wouldn't be able to tell it was an anime.
Exactly. There is a similarity between the animation. I didn't say it all looks exactly the same, but there is a distinctive look that makes it easy to tell whether something is anime. Find me the exception and I'll relinquish my point.

« #458 : 09-30-2010 05:29 »

I have to say the show Shin Chan is very different than most. I do not think it resembles your typical japanese anime. I am not saying necessarily that it is a great show either. I like it, it is pretty retradely funny.

DOOP Secretary
« #459 : 09-30-2010 10:49 »

okay josh, make your pick:

which of those was/were made in Japan.

Fallback Guy
Space Pope
« #460 : 09-30-2010 14:31 »

josh, that was a terrible list of shows.  Dragonball z and naruto are terrible, and bleach doesn't strike me as terribly good either (haven't seen but a few eps, but they didn't hook me). Death note is ok, if you're into that "I'm a super-emo serial killer lol" thing. Full Metal Alchemist is the best of the batch, but it's not the greatest series either, and if you don't catch it from the beginning, you won't really know what's going on in a typical episode.

In a nutshell, shit list. But saying you don't like anime because of that list is like saying you don't like american TV because you've seen a few episodes of American Idol, Medium, one of the CSIs, and a few random episodes of Lost. News flash: Adult Swim, and most of the other american networks, basically show mainstream anime. Aren't you the one who's always saying you hate mainstream stuff, whether it's music or movies or tv or what-the-f-ever? Well, anime is no different. Try some stuff off the beaten path. There's plenty of it streaming online for free, if you don't mind subtitles.

@Bend-err: The second one.

@Gopher, you're right.

Anyway, I watched the first two episodes of Cowboy Bebop last night, and it was...alright. I might watch a few more episodes to see if I get sucked in. I watched them dubbed, btw. Sorry, but I'd rather watch dubbed than subbed...hearing the Japanese language starts to bug me after a while. It's a very...differently spoken language than our own, and it can throw off the way I read the subtitles and make it seem very weird for me.

Fallback Guy
Space Pope
« #462 : 09-30-2010 17:51 »

Dubbed is usually fine; some minor series get incredibly terrible dubs, which both cheese them up with poor voice talent and dilute the story considerably with bad translations. Cowboy Bebop is not one of those series; in fact, few of the series I really like have half-assed dubs, because, well, quality production houses tend to demand quality throughout the process, including english language dubs.

DOOP Secretary
« #463 : 09-30-2010 17:52 »

Josh: yeah, but the 1st one too, and the 4th was a japanese-american co-production... so much about all looks the same...

I hear you josh. I actually preferred dubbed for the most part. I do not mind subtitles and Japanese though either. Then again I am learning Japanese, that may have something to do with it. I can go either way. Also Cowboy Bebop is made by Bandai and I like the American voice actors who do Bandai. They normally use really good voice actors.  The quality of the dub really depends on the company.

Just got X-men Origins: Wolverine (blu ray/DVD combo).  It wasn't as good as the other X-men movies, but I got a good deal on this.

The Wolfman was a good remake.  Blood, gore and action were cool, but the story just wasn't as iconic as the original.  It's a descent remake, nonetheless.
