    I looked at some Naruto pics on Google...looked to young for me
    Does anyone know what time Cowboy Bebop air's on Adult Swim?
     
  9. Blehhh :ugh:. They say that CB is one of the the best dubbed anime out there, but it was more worthwhile for me to buy it and watch is subbed.

    What does "subbed" and "dubbed" mean?
    I'm kind of new to anime..

    subbed = text translation like in foreign language films

    dubbed = original voice actors have been replaced by english (or alternate language) voice actors

    Man i spent like an hour on google trying to find a trailer for Naruto...
    I didn't get anything..

    I was switching though Cartoon Network and Wolf's Rain was on, but i didn't watch it cuz' i was falling asleep.

    People say X TV is good too...

    Hmm....i have a long way to go.

    The Cowboy Bebop movie is awsome, the animation is alot smoother and better looking than the series too..Have yet to see Ghost in the Shell though...

    The Cowboy Bebop movie is IMO not worth watching if you haven't seen the series. It's not going to make much sense.

    The Ghost in the Shell movie is standalone though - you don't need to have seen the series to understand the movie.

    Watch the series first. The movie's good, but it doesn't really add much to the story.

    imo the cowboy bebop movie was ok... the series is a lot better. so if u were to choose between bebop the movie or ghost in the shell the movie, definetely go with ghost in the shell.

    gits is more of a thinking anime, bebop is fun times
     
  23. you really do need to see the CB series before you see the movie. so get GitS first...then get Stand Alone Complex, watch all of that, then go see Innocence, then get CB, then watch the movie, and THEN tell me which is better...cuz you seriously can't pick one >.>

    Ya you cant pic. I still need to see GitS but CB is totaly worth your money. If you want to get it on DVD wait for the new releases because there remixing the sound so it works on 5.1 surround sound

    Cowboy bebop is awesome, its a good introduction to anime. The music is awesome and its not going to break your mind.

    GITS is excellent, I saw it well before cowboy bebop. Put it on the must see list next to akira and when your ready Neon Genesis..
