    Normally don't watch anime, but watched Belladonna of Sadness the other day. Incredible visuals. I was impressed.
    How do you guys like the fit of my new CCP suit?

    Manga was always where it was at. Animes are almost always terrible animated adaptions that cut out many of the character building segments. Watch a good anime, then read the manga and it's almost always better.

    Adding to the thread, these are by far my most favorite animes:

    GTO
    Evangelion
    Code Geass

    I don't know if it's about market saturation...a tour of any otaku's room will attest to the limits of their saturation. Tho yes, by my western perspective I see it as being saturated (and dated) as well.

    Japan is a hierarchical society, many are expected to work while the few are held up high. This tied in with set protocols and the ever present feeling of "shoganai" (C'est la vie) make workers very complacent. The current crop of workers at Disney had the fortunate circumstance of their forebearers unionizing (tho I won't say that's a solution either).

    Many wish the situation would change, but those not toeing the line will be ostracized.

    btw, "gaijin" (foreigners...anyone NOT from japan...and this sometimes includes american-born japanese) are held to a different standard (not necessarily a good one). Maybe this is changing, Hapas (part-asian), once scorned are now quite popular in the media. And of course they can't get enough of Brad Pitt and Beckham hehe.

    and my favorite anime by far is FLCL.

    FLCL was a mind fuck. Haha in a good way.

    ^Dead Leaves is way better than FLCL as a mindfuck...

    Also the studio 4°C works are pretty enjoyable, a ancient collegue of mine 's working with them, that's pretty dope stuffs. Samourai Champloo and Boondocks are also very enjoyable.

    But seriously guys...Naruto?
    I stipulate you to read all the Blade of the Immortal serie instead.

    FLCL is awesome. For many reasons, if not for the soundtrack alone.

    Samurai Champloo paled in comparison to bebop. Hip hop didn't really mesh as well as space and jazz.

    Naruto for me is blah. Blade of the immortal was boring as well...

    Vagabond on the other hand..

    Yeah, Blade of the Immortal had a really great reputation from being simply the best localized english manga of it's time, however Hiroaki Samura's fractured storytelling style/narrative flow and the dragginess of the series in the past two/three years really annoyed me.

    Vagabond is my favorite samurai manga even if it has jumped the shark for me as of 2010.

    tomatous you should read Shigurui if you're into the seinen samurai genre.

    Naruto, Bleach etc. are simply disposable weekly entertainment, and while I'm no fanboy/hardcore fan I do think that as far as disposable weekly entertainment goes there are many other things out there that are far worse. One Piece however is an awesome shonen manga. It reminds me of being a kid back when Dragonball was still being published.

    +1 on one piece, it brings weekly laugh and has a enjoyable entertaining storyline... miss the rest of the strawhat crew tho

    I actually haven't seen many samurai animes besides Kenshin and Ninja Scroll. When I have a good think about it, the anime that I most 'enjoyed' was Dragon Ball Z. Goku going super saiyan will always be an integral part of my life.

    Nausicaa is really good and looks great on blu-ray btw.

    All my favorites have already been mentioned (Akira, ninja scroll,etc...), recently I enjoyed Evangelion 1.11 and 2.22



    No manga thread but my guess is I'm not the only Suehiro Maruo or Shintaro Kago fan .

    I haven't seen or read a whole lot of manga/anime but the whole Naruto world I must say really is interesting. I love watching those episodes, the only problem is that sometimes the powerful guys sometimes don't get the attention they should. They're lead up to being fantastic power fighters, but then one of our main characters freak out in anger and get some strange power to overwhelm them completely.

    I saw Elfen(Elven?) Lied once but its so long ago. Most people found it very good but even though I did manage to see all of the episodes it didn't really catch my attention.

    Do you guys have any other ideas to what a quite newly anime fan can watch that is in the fantasy world without it being too strange? :)
