    and even "backing up" :o

    Samurai X 1-4 + Directors Cut

    Cowbow Bebop The Movie

    Plastic Little: The Adventures of Captain Tita:
    Welcome to Yietta, a breathtakingly beautiful planet where colonists live on a floating artificial continent. But there's trouble in paradise: A secret military organization is plotting to take control of the planet. A professor sabotages their plans -- at the cost of his own life. Now Captain Tita and her hyper-sub crew are putting their lives on the line to rescue the professor's daughter. It's a planet-wide game of cat and mouse!


    Ah! MY GODDESS! the movie

    Haibane-Renmei 1-4:
    In this wistful anime series, the angel-like haibane arrive in Guri in seed pods that fly into the walled town and grow into cocoons. Their names are derived from the dreams they've had while "growing" inside the cocoon, and they have no memory of their previous life. New arrival Rakka -- full of questions about her purpose and surroundings -- joins Nemu and Reki, oldest of all the haibane.

    Colorful:
    This collection comprises more than 50 short, animated episodes about men, women and their unbridled (and sometimes perverse) lust. The stories revolve around beautiful women on the subway, students infatuated with their teachers, teachers infatuated with their students, the bizarre phenomenon of furries … and much more. Aptly titled, Colorful is a ribald look at sex and relationships.


    Steel Angel Kurumi:
    In this anime thriller, the future of the entire planet is in the hands of a young boy who discovers the existence of -- and becomes the master of -- the Steel Angel Kurumi, a creature made for military use by the Academy. Now, the Steel Angel Kurumi's makers are out to destroy the boy who possesses their weapon.


    Full Metal Panic

    RahXephon (7-Disc Series):
    The year is 2015, and most of the Earth's population has been wiped out in a brutal war. High schooler Ayato Kamina meets a girl named Reika Mishima, who takes him to a secret sanctuary that's a temporary home to the war's civilian survivors. There, a humanoid mechanical weapon emerges from a black egg bearing a mark similar to one Ayato has on his body. And, as it turns out, only the young teenager can pilot this new weapon.


    Now and Then, Here and There:
    Dragged through a time warp by a giant machine, Shu is thrust into a hellish future of slavery and war. There he is captured by an army of kidnapped children. Caught between reluctant soldiers and the madman who has stolen their innocence, Shu fights to save the future. Can one child stop a war?


    Tsukihime Lunar Legend (3-Disc Series) :
    Born with Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, which enable him to destroy anything, Shiki is finally able to live a normal life by wearing a pair of special glasses. But his life turns upside down when he falls for a woman and kills her, or so he thinks. He soon discovers his actions didn't end the woman's life -- she's a fanged creature of the night, immune to Shiki's powers. This collection features four complete episodes from the anime series :rofl:

    bebop, kenshin, rahxephon, haibane, FMP, tsukihime, and Now and Then Here and There.

    Those are all very good.

    I dont understand how Rod can not suggest FMP at the very very least. It's exceptionally good. The other stuff is also very good.

    :rofl: I thought you liked romance anime? How can you not suggest Remniscience? One of the best romance animes ever. Tsukihime also follows from the same vein.

    Samurai X 1-4 is sometimes called Remniscience. I'm not sure if that includes Reflection as well since although Remniscience is 4 episodes, it's split up into only 2 OVAs. Reflections, which is what happens after the 95 ep series, is also only 2 OVAs but 4 episodes.

    Anyway, it tops the top 200 list on animenfo.com and is arguably the best short romance animes ever. I was amazed how much they packed into 1.5 hrs.

    Tsukihime is in the 20s on the list. It's also very good. In fact, everything I recommended is sub 30 on the list so it's all very good.

    here's a link to Remniscience: http://www.animenfo.com/animetitle,315,tjbtjv,rurouni_kenshin.html

    :dunno: I always hear people talking about the quality of their subs, but I've only noticed shitty subbing once ever.

    if you're really anal, you can see differences in video quality and subbing fidelity.

    and since you're investing time into watching it, you might as well spend 5-10 minutes finding the best sub possible :dunno:

    video quality != sub quality

    then again I think I get most of what is said from the audio.. I only look if it's something difficult, and I wouldn't know the difference then anyways..

    uhh what? i assume when TUN says subs, he's looking for the best fansubbing group and each fansubbing group has different video quality. I look for the fansubs with the best video quality and sub fidelity.

    these things are what I look for in a good sub

    1) good video quality. this includes a good source as well as good encoding and filtering.
    2) good editing. this includes making sure that spelling and grammar are flawless, and subs are coherent.
    3) good translation. self explanatory. I'm a fan of literal translations with translations into spoken english only when there's no equivilent or if it will sound better that way.
    4) good audio. self explanatory.
    5) good typesetting. this includes a nice sized/styled font, preferably softsubs so I can edit any mistakes in the subs that are glaring to me, and good color. I'm also a fan of having the colors of the font match the hair color of the person saying them. Some groups do this and I appreciate the touch every time.
    6) good timing. self explanatory as well. The subs have to show up on time. I'm also a fan of stutter stepping, where the subtitles come out as the line is spoken. Lunar is a great example of good stutter stepping. stutter stepping is advantageous because it doesn't spoil what happens before the character even says the line.

    I was talking about the subtitles only. Obviously everyone can tell good from bad video quality :squint:
