They definitely need to keep the transformations in check for this show. And yes, a villain with clear motivations would be nice too. I love DBZ but it needs to evolve a bit and not do the same things as always.
This seems pretty cool even though I'm not into anime-based games.
Watch it in Japanese. Trust me.
That live action movie was trash lol
Toonami seems to mostly show Funimation's Anime so I wouldn't hold out much hope of getting Fate/Zero or Persona 4 on the channel since those are handled by Sentai Filmworks. As for Future Diary and Attack On Titan, those ARE distributed (or will be) by Funimation so there is hope with those shows. Accel World is by Neon Alley so they're a wild card. Good list!
You're 100% correct. In Japan, "Anime" means animation in general. "Anime" outside of Japan means different things. Like I said in my original post, to me as a Westerner, "Anime" is animation that is produced by a Japanese studio. Some people want to talk about what makes something anime in terms of the presentation (animation, writing, story ect) but to keep things simple for myself, I just consider it animation produced in Japan.
To me, Anime means an animated show/movie/ova ect that is produced by a Japanese studio.
I really liked this show. Thumbs up!
@DeathxThexKidx Of course! The fan sub will just hold us over until then. I own the first 2 on blu-ray and I want to own all four. I can't wait!
Yup! I thought the same thing. hehehehe
This is a really fun show. Thumbs up!
Satoshi Kon was one of the greatest directors out there. R.I.P.
Why Super Dimension Fortress Macross is the greatest love story of the 20th century. Sigh...
I hope this is real. A lot of people don't know that the Akira movie ended about 1/3 through the full story. Hopefully this series will cover the entire Manga.
Good stuff right here. Gurren Lagann is one of my favorite anime of all time. It's really inspirational as this video says.
True but for me, I prefer to watch these shows on my TV instead of on my PC monitor.
I can't wait! Me want now!
I was like you too but I decided to watch the movies anyway. They're much better than the series as far as I'm concerned. I liked NGE but felt it had a lot of problems. These movies are giving me the Evangelion I was expecting.
I really can't think of an anime world I'd like to live in. Most of them are pretty frightening. There's the post apocalyptic worlds which are on the brink of extinction either from a man made disaster or from alien invaders. Or there are the ones set in a feudal Japan that's overrun with demons. Even the Ghost in the shell universe is kind of scary because you have to worry about either a.i rising to dominate mankind or some terrorist group hacking into every...
