PostSubject: Great Japanese Animations You've Watched   Mon 30 May - 14:42

So I'm just kinda curious, and sorta looking for new animes to watch during my free time. What are some of the best animes you've ever watched.
I'll start off with myself. I've watched several animes series and the ones I've liked the most are dealing with modern and sci-fi settings.

Sci-Fi:
1. Macross Frontier - The 25th anniversary restart of the famous Super Dimensional Fortress Macross series, this tribute to the original did not disappoint. The one series where song, transforming fighter jets, and surviving against an alien assault can be combined seamlessly into a gripping tale.

2. Gundam Unicorn - The latest animation spanning the Universal Century dimension of the famous Gundam series. Gundam Unicorn blends breathtaking art-style, excellent characterization, and stunning battles into a exciting anime. Still on-going, Gundam Unicorn is definitely an anime series to watch out for.

3. Gundam 00 - While not quite as high up on my list as Gundam Unicorn, Gundam 00 is a successful attempt to restart the Alternate Universes of the Gundam franchise after the pile of steaming crap that is Gundam SEED Destiny. Again, the high-quality battle footage and art style that is characteristic of the Gundam franchise can be seen prominently in this particular series. The OVA for Gundam 00 is out but I feel it does not live up to the same standards in plot as the TV series.

4. Code Geass and Code Geass R2: Lelouch of the Rebellion - Code Geass is the brainchild of the famous animation group CLAMP. It has often been referred to as a cross between Gundam and Death Note. The protagonist of Code Geass is different from most protagonist in Gundams in that instead of being gifted with a super-prototype machine that is capable of devastating whole armies, he uses his own mind and tactics to pull off victories that would have been considered a lost cause by most other people. Definitely worth watching to see Lelouch become an unmatched magnificent bastard.

Modern:
1. Black Lagoon - Black Lagoon is different from traditional anime in that the point of view of the story is not from a goody-goody two shoes hero, but from a group of mercenaries/couriers that are willing to do any job for the right price, from transporting sex slaves to smuggling in illicit goods. Excellent artwork and incredible detail are paid attention to guns. Definitely worth watching if you're a gun nut or just in the taste for something different.

2. Full Metal Panic - In a contrast from Black Lagoon, Full Metal Panic follows a counter-terrorist group that specialize in mechanized warfare using humanoid robots called Arm-Slaves. The animation style is once again, simply amazing and combat between arm-slaves become absolutely brutal. It also has a spin off series, Full Metal Panic : Fumoffu that is focused on light-hearted comedy and humorous incidents involving the main characters of Full Metal Panic.

My favourite out of all animes I have watched is probably Dragon Ball Z lol!

But if you're wanting those type of animes that doesn't take months to watch:

Byousoku 5 Centimeter Per Second
Spoiler:
 

Genre: Romance, life lessons, Tragedy, bitter sweet.

It's about young love, and how often you slowly drift away from people you love. If you do watch it, you will understand why the title is its title.

I.M.O: The first thing that really fascinated me about this anime, was how detailed it was. Not only the storyline, but the animation. It's the best anime graphic design and life lesson, storyline I have ever seen. It's one I'll always remember. It only runs for 1 hour, but it was the best 1 hour that I have ever spent.


If you have spare 3 minutes?

Draw With Me

Spoiler:
 

It's about a guy and a girl on opposite sides of a seemingly, unbreakable glass. It depicts how it feels like to be in a long-distance relationship.

Genre: Romance, Tragedy.

I.M.O: The old music that was played in Draw With Me (Ai Otsuka - Cherish), Really complimented the animation very well, until the music had to be taken off for copyright reasons. I don't get the same feeling through this music as the old one.

My favourites are:

-Dragonball
I mean the very first one. Dragonball Z and the rest just ruined it for me. It was also the very first Anime I ever saw. I believe this was loosely based upon the story "Journey to the west". If you compare the characters you can guess who's who.
The Story:
 

-Bakemonogatari
Lots of talking, lots of humour, and a pinch of mystery (vampires, curses, gods, etc...). Its based on a Novel and has lots of japanese word-plays. My all-time favourite.
The Story:
 

-Giant Killing
I saw this one recently and I really liked the main-character who's an Ex-Soccer-Worldchampion who returns to become the Manager/Trainer of his old Footbal-Club (which he left to become a Soccer-Worldchamion). Now he has to make them trust him (because almost everyone hates him) and form them into a team that can challenge the Giants of the (japanese) Soccer World. Hence the title "Giant Killing"...
Story:
 

-Black Lagoon
I like the complete Series. I saw the 1st and 2nd Barrage and the OVA. I've also read the Manga as far as they published it in Germany.
Story:
 

-Tiger&Bunny
Something I'm currently watching. I'm curious how this will end. At the beginning I was hooked by the setting: Superheroes are commercialised and earning "Points" is more important then actually catching the culprit (well, you do get points for that, but...) and Tiger is still someone who believes in Justice, while the others around him consider it just as a "job".
Story:

Dang, your right, Draw with Me was awesome.

So I assume she cut off her other arm, so he could use it to draw? I'm also very interested in some sort of part 2 to this, it's touching. Or even some other similar work, the style is nice.


Edit: I also liked .hack and Wolfs Rain. Not exactly japanese..but meh.

Yea, the guy was left-handed and the girl was right-handed, so she "gave" him her whole arm. I wish there was a part two, but the maker hasn't made anything in months.

If you like that type of genre animation, Byousoku 5 Centimeter Per Second is where you should be heading. :]
