Anime Threads?

Are there any anime oriented threads here?

I tried searching for anime but could only find a single or two threads on a specific animated movie.

Re: Anime Threads?

I didn't see any, but you could start one here. A quick search turned-up a few posts, but there does not seem to be a dedicated thread for it.

Cool. Thanks. I did check there first but didn't see it so thought to ask.

I love anime but I am not an expert. There are a lot of anime movies out there but some are not as great as others. Just like hollywood!

So, thought to see which movies folks recommended.

Re: Anime Threads?

It's a popular movie style, and I've started watching a bit myself. It may prove to be a popular thread, but I'm less than a novice when it comes to appreciating anime. I watched a lot of Japanese cartoons as a kid, and anime has grown-up quite a bit since the old Speed Racer*cartoons. Good luck!!

*I'm assuming that Speed Racer qualifies at least loosely as anime, but this probably proves how little I actually know about the subject.

Re: Anime Threads?

I do own a lot of anime dvds. Mostly all the movies from Studio Ghibli. They are wholesome family oriented movies that my kids enjoy.

I also have others which are not kid friendly (lot of violence such as Akira and Bleach).

yes. The movie mentioned "The Secret World of Arrietty " is a Studio Ghibli production and it is very good.
However, I thought the earlier movies such as the below were better. If you liked "The Secret World of Arrietty", check out the below movies from the same studio.

My Neighbor Totoro
Kiki's Delivery Service
Princess Mononoke
Spirited Away -- this won best animated Oscar
Howl's Moving Castle
Ponyo

Speed Racer is a good classic. Also, BattleTech.. They were my early childhood entries into Anime..

I guess we can make this thread an anime thread.. lol

Re: Anime Threads?

Vudu has (or had?) free episodes of some anime series; I've watched several of them and really enjoyed a few. I must agree that some of them are "wholesome." It already looks like an anime thread would be popular; good luck and thanks for the suggestion!

Re: Anime Threads?

For those interested in anime series (tv shows in Japan) and/or anime movies that are now available on dvd/netflix/blockbuster, check out the below.

Beware thou, they are not "Disney" (Rated G or PG) type animated series/movies since they mostly have a lot of violence and have topics equivalent to R rated movies in Hollywood...

Cowboy Bebop
Ghost in the Shell
Fullmetal Alchemist
Death Note
Clannad: After Story
Gurren Lagann
Darker than BLACK

For now this will do..

yeah, the thing with anime is that half is good for the family (rated G or PG) and the other half due to violence and due to other items equivalent to a R rated movie in Hollywood, a thread is good to have where people can talk about the movies and you don't "accidently" pick a movie you didn't really want in your collection.. lol
