    Movies have a much higher animation budget, so they can go all out with the eye candy. Some movies are meaningful and are part of the story, but you are right in saying they are basically 2 hour fillers. :o

    yeah most are fillers now adays, thats why I stick to old school anime where alot more of them were actually movie based, ala Miyazaki when he used to pump them out, ninja scroll, even the "fillers" were quite interesting for Macross and the likes back then in the late 80's and 90's

    <- :bowdown:

    Agreed about the filler statements. It's pretty much hit or miss.....

    BTW. Which series are you fellas hoping to see a movie from?

    Hopefully they have a Battle Angel Alita (sans James Cameron), Bubblegum Crisis, or Samurai Champloo headed our way.

    When you watch AIR movie it totally sucks towards the anime AIR.TV serie, its like [​IMG] a compressed car, of the series. Its only nice when a movie is a true 'follow up' or 'stand alone'

    OR

    You can say you either watch the series or the movie but not both. Or
    Read the book , but not watch the series or the movie.

    Combinations usually suck because the movies don't follow the books, like LOTR everyone says the books are better then the movie. But enough rant.

    The anime in movies usually kick ass because the eye candy is awesome. In air t.v series i like the clouds better drawn then the ones in real life. AKira is so fricken well made, the point for me is basically to have a smashing good time, if you don't watch both you can have an exellent night of watching anime movies.

    I want a feakin movie for fafner.
    :hs:

    You have movies like the rahxephon movie and end of eva that really add alot to the story and then you have junk like the blue gender movie that is just pure shit.

    Its pretty much hit or miss.

    I found the Air Movie to be pretty damn good. It took out a lot of the characters but focused on the main story.

    RahXephon movie was much like BG movie in that it was pretty much a recap :hsugh: It had some good new scenes but half of it was old animation.

    Fafner has Right of Left :hsugh: :wtc: It's pretty decent :hs:

    But how the Fafner series ended.... it was just like Gundam Seed almost :eek4: I want a little more to see what happened after :hs: I thought Right of Left was going to do that, but it was the exact opposite yet still good.

    Just wanted to bring a noticeable mention to End of Evangelion. The movie finished the storyline superbly and was eleventy-bajillion times better than the series.
