    does anyone have any recommendations as to what i should see? i have akira and ghost in the shell. but outside of those i know nothing about anime. come on guys, reccomend something. and a small description as to what you are recommending is about would help a lot.

    I love CB, and i have seen only a few minutes of FLCL, I really liked it, but I can't get over that one girl's lips, other than that from what I saw I thought it was cool.

    FLCL = Furi Kuri or Fooly Kooly. probably the weirdest (in a good way) anime I've seen, but funny as hell. almost as funny as Azumanga Daioh.

    Kenshin - Tsuiokuhen is still my fav. (4 part OVA not the series)

    Read or Die is another favorite and only 3 episodes long.

    what genre of anime are you looking for? romatic comedy? action/drama? action/comedy? fantasy/drama?

    FLCL stands for Fooly Coolly. though it is officically the name of the series, the letters still stand for something

    Will no one speak good things of the Wolf Rain?
    Damn good series, but you'll have to find it online, it's still in japan.
    Check this place out, download the program and then get the anime.

    Wolf's Rain is licensed so you won't find it on animesuki. They stopped fansubbing it at like 20 something. I think everybody should watch One Piece. Now, that's a damn good anime series. I think it has like somewhere around the 130 episode range. I'm going to buy this series when it's released. It's been licensed by Funimation for awhile. Damn Funimation! They are so slow! Another series that I like is Dear Boys. I think it is pretty entertaining even though their physics and dimension are off, it's still entertaining to watch. Some people think it's gay because the drawing remind them of a hentai show or a yaoi show. If you haven't watch hentai or yaoi, then you are ok with the drawing, that is if you let the drawing bother you that much. I don't really care about the type of drawing as long as the show is entertaining.

    I didn't find NGE that interesting. People kept saying that it was good so I sat through all 26 episodes and thought it was kinda dull. I found Shinji hella annoying because he's so weak. Always scared and trying to prove himself to his father. I would say that he's a little mental. Actually, I think all the pilots are troubled kids. That's probably one of the requirements for being the pilot. I guess if you like watching troubled kids become more mentally troubled, this is the show for you.

    Is Outlaw Star any good? Also, I have downloaded some anime, but I want to start buying some, and I don't know where to look. Everywhere I go has a very limited selection. Is there one place everyone goes or does everyone usually have to check several places to buy anime?

    You completely missed the point. :slap: How would you feel if you were ~16 and your coldhearted bastard of a father just showed up all the sudden and told you that he needs you to do something, but that something is to link yourself with a thinking, feeling killing machine? And to boot, your first time out you are nearly killed.

    At 16, most kids aren't stable people. Granted Shinji is a little more depressed than most, but it's not suprising given his circumstances.

    Anyway, to go back on topic, I'll just throw in some of my favorites:

    Neon Genesis Evangelion
    Chobits
    Mahoromatic
    Ai Yori Aoshi (2nd season airing this October in Japan :bigthumb:)
    Cowboy Bebop
    Boogiepop Phantom
    Love Hina
    His and Her Circumstances - buy the manga. The episodes are only good through ~#17 then it gets very bad.
    Mobile Suit Gundam Wing

    The most interesting plot twist of NGE was the Evangelions themselves.

    I need to check out RahXephon.
