   Here a video that was shot by the people from Trends in Japan CScout Japan Tokyo Toy Show 2009. 

It nice to know that it's not just video games and anime that come out of Japan.
| |
I know I do allot of these top 10 list, but here I go.

1. X-Men (TV Series).  If you are a hard die comic fan of the 1990’s X-men comics you need to see this show.  It's just the best.


2. Tenchi Universe.  Again here's my review.    http://www.animevice.com/tenchi-universe/11-5225/user_reviews/?review=17


3. Star Trek: TNG.  If it were for the strong cast I would have put DS9 at number 3.  


4.  Star Trek: DS9.  This show is one the most underrated sci-fi shows of all time.


5. The Wonder Years.  The most regluar show on my list.  I grew up with Kevin when this show first came on the air.  That why I love this show so much.  I just wish they would have DVD box set to all the seasons all ready.


6. Spawn.   I wish they would finish the story line from the late 1990’s show.  Can’t wait for the new show. 


7. Mystery Science Theater 3000.  When you talk about funny this show is bar done the funniest show I seen on TV.  Also I specially love the shorts that they would make fun of.  They are just priceless.


8. Voltron.  I know this is base off of Go Lion anime, but I think of Voltron has more of american type of show because they change so much of the show that came from Japan.  That's why I didn't put this show on my top 20 favorite anime of all time.  Also just look at the videos of the two shows  intro theme songs and then tell me with show would want to see. 



9. Tenchi Muyo. Again the new Muyo Esp. that came in 2003 are only OK. I would recommend that you want the old DVD to Muyo. The one's from 1992 show. That way you get some the best of Tenchi.


10. Jem. This story is about a all girl rock group that has lead singer that has secret holographic persona.  This is another one of my guilty pressures.  I need to by the box set the show when I get a chance.

I done the worst animes I think that are out  their.  Now I would be my most favorite ones.  

1. Tenchi Universe.  Here a link to my review of Tenchi Universe.   Tenchi Universe.

2. Tenchi Muyo. The new Muyo Esp. that came in 2003 are only OK. I would recommend that you want the old DVD to Muyo. The one's from 1992 show. That way you get some the best of Tenchi. 


3. His and Her Circumstances. The manga name is Kare Kano. This anime has such a strong cast that any of the minor characters in this anime could have their own show and it would be really good.

4. Maison Ikkoku. The best love story in anime between adults.


5. Blue Seed.  This anime put the United States in a good light.  Most animes tend not to do that.  Some of best of Blue Seed happens after the show.  During Omake theater shorts.  Some of them are funny and some of them are really serious.  The one should not watch is the one with Momiji grandmother.  If you seen this short you know what I talking about.

6. Golden Boy.  Golden Boy is guilty pressure of mine.  The manga version not so much.  Let just say they take Kintaro Oe really nasty/sick fetish form the anime and make it a main stay in the manga.  That’s was really not good idea.  This one not for kids.  Both the anime and manga.

7. Oh My Goddess.  The story is really sold and just wish more animes were made like this one.

8.  Cowboy Bebop.  This is show you should watch over and over again and not get tired of it.

9. Hana Yori Dango. Aka Boys Over Flowers.  For one thing it’s a great Shojo title and another thing this anime got my little sister into reading manga.  All in all that is a very good thing. 

10. Hellsing.  What a anime that dose a good job with the vampire gene Outside of Vampire Hunter D.

11. Tenchi in Tokyo.  I know Tenchi in Tokyo was the worst of the three Tenchi shows, but it still Tenchi and you have to admit the art style was not that bad in this show.

12.  Maria-sama Ga Miteru.  I love the slow pace of the show.  It really works for this show.  I just wish Right Stuff would lower their price on the season box set.  They didn’t English Dub it so cost should be that high.  Some one tell Ellen Degeneres that this show out their so she can put it on her web site.  

13. Revolutionary Girl Utena.  This is type of anime that I can watch over and over and still get something new from it each time.

14. Outlaw Star.  Two words why I love this show.  Gene Starwind.  

15. Princess Nine.  Bad News Bears meets A League Of Their Own and it words perfectly.  I hope some one brings over Taishou Yakyuu Musume when the time comes.   At least I would buy it.

16. Lupin the 3rd TV or what lupin fans like to say is the Red Jacket series.

17. Strawberry Eggs.  You think this show would be really creep show, but it really dosent go that far.  

18. Martian Successor: Nadesico. Thanks to Giant robot week on CN or may have miss watching this one.

19. Kimagure Orange Road. This one would have been in my top five if they would dub it in eng and not just have eng subtitles.  Also if you watch the movie Kimagure Orange Road: I Want to Return to That Day It would be one of the most pain full movies you well ever see in your life.  It hurts even thinking about it.  Just heart-wrenching.

20. Diamond Daydreams.  This anime that could be on Lifetime and it wouldn’t be a problem.

I played the game at my local gameworks a couple of days ago and I wasn't that good of a game.  I been posting alot about this game on my blog site for awhile now and I been wanting to play this game and better be careful what I ask for because I got it.  First of all the game is very easy to play.  I was doing 10 to 13 hit combo right off the bat.  I pretty average fighting player and I know I can do that many combos in any other game desides Killer instinct and that game is nothing but combos.

The game is really unblanced.  You could beat it with Ryu if you wanted to.  I played has Chi-li and Ken Washio.  I wanted someone to take the game from me and start playing it and I had no takers.  My brother play me and he stop playing after 10 minutes and he let me beat him.

I hope when this game comes out here that it's a 20 dollor game.  I wouldn't pay a cent more for this game.

Next time Capcom try to parter with a anime company to do a fighting game try anime company like AIC or Clamp.  Hell at this time I wouldn't even mind if you brought over Namco x Capcom to home console market in the United States.   It only has four buttoms to play with has well.  Every fighting game now days has at lest six buttoms.
