Seriously WTF, they should remove the rest of the characters in HM and make it the McGuirk half hour of fun and enjoyment.

You think he's that cool, huh? Well, McGuirk would get his ass kicked by Big O. And that show just plain blows

Lupin the Third is awesome for its time.... unfortunately that time is 30 years ago so........ it leaves something lacking when we watch it now.

Hey, at least Big O doesn't hide the fact that they stole the theme song from Flash Gordon!

Now that I know Lupin III was done before GI Joe and Transformers, I think it rules a lot more. I thought it was entertaining before, although I think having the one dude run around with his sword is pretty lame.

I miss Blue Gender as well. I never knew what was going on because I didn't follow the series closely, but man, it was really cool.

I really want to watch some more Yu Yu Hackusho. It used to be Adult Swim and now it's earlier in the day when the play Dragonball (Z). Unfortunatly, they keep on playing the first season over and over, which ends with my favorite character about to begin the fight of his life, and that aggrivates the hell out of me. WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENS NEXT!?

Peoples' opinions on anime are like assholes: everyone's got one and they all stink. There are always die hards for any series. Personally, Big O's suckage was mostly from bad translation. There are some animes that you just shouldn't watch in English.

McGurk kicks ass, the rest of the show is okay. That's my stinky opinion anyway.

i enjoy home movies due to its badness- except for the two freaking kids, perry and whoever.
though the best episodes always have lots to due with mcgurk.
big O and lupin III should be replaced with invader zim's scarey monkey show. that would rock.

99% should remain in japanese. The only good english dubbing I've seen unfortunately has been dragonball, dragonballz, and the miyazaki films.

Well, there are a few good dubs worth mentioning. As a rule of thumb, Pioneer tends to do a rather good job with their dubbing, the Tenchi Series and Cowboy Bebop being notable examples (Bandai ran Bebop, but Pioneer dubbed). There are however some groups out there that should never, EVER be allowed to dub. Manga comes to mind, as does Media Works. Then again, Media Works anime in general are shitty. They have their breadwinner Ruroni Kenshin and that's about that. And even that is dubbed shitty.

Actually Record of Loduss Wars sucked in Japanese, but was a whole lot better in English.

For example in english when someone screams No:

Nooooooooooooo

In Japanese when someone screams No:

no

Its like they sucked all the emotion out of the subtitled version.

I cant stand any of the Dragonball series- its takes 47 episodes to get through one fight- and the whole plot around that fight is usually very thin. And whats with the talking pig? Greatest action cartoon my ass- Transformers kicked its ass- hell Transformers Beast Wars kicked its ass- and that sucked.

A show i do like tho is Inuyasha. Blue Gender was great because it had all cool things- like giant bugs, Mech suits and lots of bllod and killing- all on top of a really cool plot. I started watching towards the end of the series- but I still caught on and really enjoyed the show.

Lupon 3 is just boring- no matter what decade its from. Its like a Cowboy Bebop on seditives.

Yu Yu Hackusho is a cool show- but they started it over just as I was getting into it.
