Just Anime » Supernatural punks anime (again?)

So the ghost on supernatural was called Shojo today. A japanese ghost that you could only see if you were drunk. So as you probably know shojo is a type of anime/manga targeted to young women (who also watch supernatural due to the male leads) so I guess the idea here is you have to be drunk to like shojo? I don't know..they had to kill it with a samuri sword blessed by a shinto priest. I think they did something with anime before though I am not sure. Either way rather hilarious.

Just Anime » Cowboy Bebop or Ghost in Shell?

@sickVisionz: hmm I like to think about the meaning of it all and best way to live ect. I think that kind of thinking is important and interesting. I own books on the philosophy of science and religion actually. So my tastes are a little different. The second GTS movie I felt smarter coming out of it than I did going in. But some of my science teachers called philosophy intellectual masturbation so I understand where you are coming from. I always liked to think and talk about ideas though *shrug*

Both of these shows are certainly great and far and away better than 99% of anime both are worth watching (unlike bobobobo say or much that comes out now), but you asked which one was better so...

Just Anime » Cowboy Bebop or Ghost in Shell?

@sickVisionz: wow really? I loved both of the Ghost in the shell movies. Such great philosophy. Cowboy bebop had great style but not to much substance and the ending seemed lazy to me.

Just Anime » Why is Ghost in the Shell considered a dystopia?

I will have to try to find the screened article that mentioned it...but they called it a dystopia over their. Akira I would say comes closer to a dystopia but I don't think we know enough about the world as a whole to say (at least from the movie) I have never watched fist of the north star.

Just Anime » Why is Ghost in the Shell considered a dystopia?

I have never really considered Ghost in the Shell a dystopia. To me things like brave new world and 1984 are dystopias. In these you have extreme government control which you do not have in Ghost in the Shell. A very urban environment filled with technology does not immediately mean dystopia (or at least shouldn't) by that logic the republic of the first Jedi films are dystopias. Honestly the future shown in Ghost in the Shell (at least in Japan, not big on the American Empire) doesn't seem that bad to me. An ability to live almost forever, cool technologies for entertainment and advancement of knowledge.

Just Anime » Cowboy Bebop or Ghost in Shell?

hmm if the type of anime you like normally is dragonball and pokemon (to anime I don't like at all) I would suggest bebop. I personaly find Ghost in the Shell (movie especially) to be a much better show.

Just Anime » uminekio do I even want to know what this show is about?

*blinks* WHERE HAS THIS SHOW BEEN ALL MY LIFE?? That description just made me INCREDIBLY interested in this show. Has this been imported to America? This has all most everything I love in Anime. Crazy scary situations that you wouldn't get away with in a non Japanese show. Magic and fantasy, and a crazy thought provoking plot that seems like it can be interpreted in multiple ways. I need to see this NOW!

Just Anime » uminekio do I even want to know what this show is about?

so ran across some you-tube clips on uminekio recently. Like this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i11jo9cQY9s

Now either this is a great horror anime.....or it is utter ridiculous and disturbing for the sake of disturbing crap....do I even want to know?

General Discussion » Pick A New Watch & Learn!

Ug yu-yu hakusho is winning sigh...not a show you can learn anything from just a DBZ clone and just as silly, pointless, and pointlessly long. Ah well...usagi drop, fam the last exile, or count of monte cristo are much better choices.

Off-Topic » Japanese fashion influencing america?

Hmm ok then. For some reason it didn't let me know when I got replies to this thread. Interesting. I was actually born in 78 but I had forgotten the knee high socks I used to wear, though I think as a male we pushed the knee high socks down..hmm that has odd connotations now doesn't it heh.

To bad women wearing kimonos in America would be cool ;). But yes the first time I see hose for men I'm going to revolt...ug to be a man in the colonial era. No thank you.

Bug Reporting » issues with adding a list

So I was trying to add a list, and after I had added several things to the list made comments on each one using the add to list bar at the bottom (thank you for that made building of the list much easier) it then after I said save list went to updating and tried to update for a good 15 minutes with no changes. I eventually closed down the firefox browser. Can anyone else add lists currently? Did I go about adding the list incorrectly? I didn't put anything in the text box above...

Thanks!

Quests » moe anime....no k-on really?

The other I think I found from that site...oh wait no haven't found the first one yet. Wow. The one you hinted at here good show? Don't normally like moe but Anzumanga which I would call moe I really enjoy...

So hint for the first one on the list? Now to find the romantic anime

Quests » moe anime....no k-on really?

ok so I am at a loss on the moe quest....I assume the quest is older so this is older moe anime but the ones I immeaditly though of...Dihao, K-on, were not on this one...and the hints I found on this board so far didn't help any. The only other band show I know is beck and that is so very NOT moe. I suppose hariuhi suzami could be one but that is new...hmm how old is clannad that is moe...ok going to check these but any hints would be welcome (man I know to many moe anime for this being the genre that I don't like...)

Off-Topic » Japanese fashion influencing america?

So I don't normally notice fashion...I'm a guy after all. But I have started to see the kind of knee or thigh high socks and tights around in America that before I only saw in Japanese media. It seems to be confined to the tween or younger set right now, but I expect it will move up as time goes on. Most recent one I saw was an interesting American iteration. Jeans but the Jeans were rolled up to the knee so white and pink cloth socks could be seen that had a bow wrapped around the back of the sock and tied in the front. Girl was about 8 and it was actually amazingly cute....and very Japanese.

Anyone else noticing this and what do you think about it? I'm kind of dreading it moving up the ranks to older people..I mean in pics the whole knee high and thigh high stuff works but in real life I have found it doesn't really look all that attractive I mean just go ahead and wear full tights....
