I know, I know, most anime is pretty cheesy and aimed at a kid audience. The ones that actually *are* more adult involve tentacles and unmentionable goings-on. However, a few anime series and movies stand out for me and will forever make me a fan. My favorite anime TV shows are: Rurouni Kenshin (Legend of Kyoto Shishio Saga), and Cowboy Bebop. CBB probably wins out as my favorite because of the marvelous writing, music, and imaginative conceptual production. I don't think I've seen another anime, or any TV show for that matter, that has come close to being so good. If anyone know of another anime with a similar feel, let me know. Oh, and I've seen Samurai Champloo and liked it but feel it still didn't come close. Also, I've been trying to get into Ghost in the Shell: SAC but don't think it's really got me hooked. I haven't really seen any good anime movies lately. Stuff like Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke are asthetically pleasing but aren't really moving in the way they hope to be (at least to me). I never really got too much into the cult classics Akira and Ghost in the Shell either. What I really did enjoy, and I'll put down as my favorite was Ninja Scroll. Nothing like a little ultra violence and hardcore cool. The Vampire Hunter D movie was similar and comes in as my second favorite. Can anyone suggest a similar movie? I haven't really been following anime recently so if anyone has found a gem, please let me know!
