mmm, this sounds really cool, i've got an old akira special edition (in the cardboard box with a cd rom), and the subtitled version is loads better than the the original dubbed, but unfortunately it's subtitles for the deaf so you (dog barks) and (glass smashes) subs. a bit irritating to say the least.

anyone remember project a-ko btw? and fist of the north star, and golgo 13 (sp?), i grew up with those...also - transformers the movie has mostly japanese animators, and it's quality. i think it was orson welles' final film (unicron!!!!!!) and has an excellent hair-metal soundtrack.

edit p.s. - darren aronofsky is pencilled in to do a live action lone wolf and cub.

I like most of Miyazaki's stuff; favourite film ever is Laputa.

Series-wise:

Rurouni Kenshin (especially the Kyoto Arc and the OVAs; prefer the manga though)

Vision of Escaflowne

FLCL

Kodomo no Omocha (or just Kodocha; more fun than the manga)

Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou (His and Her Circumstances)

Did start watching RahXephon but got a bit bored. Neon Genesis Evangelion started off well but I didn't like how it ended.

I liked Cowboy Bebop, but think it's a bit overrated.

Saw a few episodes of Love Hina which were quite funny.

I'd like to see One Piece, as I've been collecting the manga and it's great.

Akira hands down. I'm not a big anime fan anymore, but that one transcends its genre and demands recognition as a great film. You don't have to be a fan of anime to appreciate Akira.

Oh and Fist of the North Star was good fun too I suppose. Gotta love the punchie head explodie.

I want to see ones that are "realistic." Either ones set in modern day that are spy thrillers, or historical ones with Samurai or other kind of battles. I.e. no monsters; no crazy sci fi, etc. Do these exist, and if so, what can you suggest? Thanks.

For Samurai, I would recommend the Rurouni Kenshin OVAs. "Reflection" probably won't make much sense, but you can definitely watch "Trust" and "Betrayal" without worrying too much about the rest of the Rurouni Kenshin story.

I believe there was a remake done of 7 Samurai, as well as a few on the Shinsengumi. Don't know much more about them though.

Anyone get their anime from www.greencine.com ? Amazing selection. Great service if you are anywhere near Frisco. Unfortunately, I had to cancel because I am house poor...

I would highly recommend Peacemaker Kurogane if you are interested in the fall of the Edo period and the Shinsengumi. It is basically a novelization of the lifes of the Shinsengumi.

It is not anime, but the Lone Wolf & Cub miniseries was extremely violent and cool.

It is my favorite so far. Good music, good taste in clothes, good character and storyline development.

Not many Anime are 'realistic' - that's sort of the point, in many ways. Although, I suppose the Samurai ones can be - take a look at Samurai Champloo in that case. It's a bit wacky, what with the hip-hop soundtrack, but in terms of the characters and what actualyl happens, fairly realistic.

Gundam Wing was absolutely amazing. The movie was great too. I really enjoy Rouroni Kenshin but not samurai X. I absolutely love Cowboy Bebop, the movie was orgasmic. Anything Miyazaki shouldn't be missed. Ever. Pom Poko was great, I love spirited Away, Castle In the Sky, and Totoro. Princess Mononoke was THE BEST. It's what got me into anime and definately shouldn't be over looked. A good series is... I can't remember the name... 5 chicks, they fight crime in the future and have huge boobs. It was really popular and aired on TechTv a few years ago. If you want to see some classics, check TCM frequently. They air anime quite a bit suprisingly.
