Another Slickdeal. Can anyone suggest what's good? All I can say is that I thoroughly enjoyed the Cowboy Bebop series. I have no idea what's good after that.

escaflowne was the only series I really enjoyed. The rest are all odd or the endings suck.

anything directed by Miyazaki is going to be awesome, plus ghost in the shell and ninja scroll.

Escaflowne, summarazied. (If I remember correctly.)

Episodes 1-20 or so: slowly progressing plot in that traditional Japanese "circular" storytelling style.
Episodes 21, 22: HOLY SHIT WE HAVE NO MORE MONEY WE NEED TO END THE SERIES RIGHT NOW!!!!

So basically everything in that list is "Le Suck?"

'Super Dimensional Cavalry Southern Cross' and 'Genesis Climber Mospeada might ' might be interesting because they form 2/3 of the basis for Robotech. Other than that the only thing that looked interesting was Nadia...

yeah, the rest looks like 80s, kid stuff, pseudo-hentai, and video-game based. Although, you could always check titles on imdb or amazon for reviews and such.

Most anime qualifies as such ... but the stuff that is good is really good.

Looks like someone forgot about Ninja Scroll. Or whatever that one flick was.

(Man it ruled!)

Hmm...I think ninja scroll holds a special place in your heart as it was one of the first to infiltrate the American market with appeal. If you watch it again, you may find it lacking, after having seen something else. I was very disappointed with 'ninja scroll'.

However, anime is more entertaining to me than evocative or emotional. I liked bastard, but only because I was present during the U.S. premier release at GenCon. Talking with the guys who did the sub-titles and their talking about all the undertones and references to american culture had them giddy. Or, maybe it was the 72 hours without sleep to get it all translated. Smile

Ditto. Same with Vampire Hunter D.
