Ugh! I can't stand Gigantor- especially that theme song; "Gigaaaaantooooor!"
BIGGER THAN BIG, TALLER THAN TALL, QUICKER THAN QUICK, STRONGER THAN STRONG, READY TO FIGHT FOR RIGHT AGAINST WRONG. GIGANTOR. GIGANTOR. GIGAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Or some crap like that.
At least I find most other mech anime I've seen to be okay, like Gundam Wing, Gundam 08th MS Team, G Gundam, and sometimes Big-O, I guess. I still haven't gotten into that particular genre, but I don't count Blue Gender. I like that show, but it's just different.
Wing - Meh/08th - Swell/G - Fantasticly fantastic/O - Decent/Blue - Good from what I've seen of it.
I was thinking about checking out Hades Project Zeorymer, Gasaraki, and maybe Megazone 23.......The whole "is it real or is it a simulation/dream?" thing. I know Hades Project Zeorymer is only 4 episodes, so I'll probably buy it...... I don't want to pay a lot of money for them, but I also don't like to purchase a mere fraction of any series. I always try to get the entire thing. The only show I haven't completed yet is Lupin the Third.
Out of those three I know of Megazone 23 being a wise purchase. I can't remember how long it is but it'll be worth your money IMO. Series like that always[for the most part]are really good and have fantastic endings. I understand you on the whole cost issue with series. Hell, the FLCL DVD's, one of them containing only two episodes was and probably still is $30. But you should finish off Lupin first, fantastic series and the game wasn't too shabby either.
Well, out of these three, Gasaraki, Hades Project Zeorymer, and Megazone 23, which do you guys think is the best? Probably Gasaraki, right?
It's any mans guess. I can't really tell you because you might find one to be better than the other. Why don't you look them up and read up a bit on those series and their story line/plot.

Wasn't Gigantor the first Mech/Sci-fi Anime made. It was made sometime in the 1960s.
Yes it was. As a matter of fact I do belive it is the first ever series to be considered 'anime' ever made. Some of the more ground breaking series is Speed Racer and MS Gundam. Magaziner Z came out a bit later and is over-shadowed by some of the bigger series but it is a good one at that.
Gatchaman is another ground breaker, made either in the late seventies or early eighties. It's a pretty big hit with the youngsters over in japan from what I've heard. Not to mention they have Doremon[spelling] toilet paper as well. Isn't that fantastic when you can wipe your butt with your favorite anime character? Bring me some Gundam toilet paper anyday.
Or better yet, if you hate them you can desicrate them by using 'said toilet paper' on your butt.

SAC is built on kickass art and film direction, throw in a kickin sound track, lotsa guns, and a cute comic relief character in the form of a talkin tank. This shit just comes together like Jesus and grace, and I'm willing to bust out the cash to get it in my DVD player legally. However, SAC is a bit dumbed down at certain points in order to fit in action and fun, but I didn't mind at all.
Seems like we share the same mind. I do get tired of some of the meager filler episodes at times, the ones that reveal character pasts are alright with me though. Besides, who wouldn't want a Tatchcoma?
If you were Canadian, like me eh, you could buy all the booze you want. Or do what I did, work for the Liquor Control Board of Ontario and keep the alcohol outta underaged hands :P
>:*( It's not my fault that the legal drinking age is 21 here and 19 there. No fair.
Sucks to be American.
Filthy CANADIAN EH >:P

Unfortunately, the first anime I remember watching was Pokemon, and damn was I addicted to it.
I'd have to agree with you on that one. Although there is still a part of me that does enjoy the series every now and then, brings back some nice memories. 'Nice' being the key word here.
Oh yes. Behold. The second coming of Wonko. For those that remember me.
Christ, I thought you had given up on the net for good there. Don't scare me like that, I'd rather have you around being your usual self than you gone for over half the year. Since what, April or May?
Okay. I have seven and a half months of Naruto to catch up on. Fuck that, I don't have the time. Anyone got some new anime to suggest? I don't like things like Love Hina, or Maburaho, but I do like Bastard, and other anime's where people get the shit beat out of them. And fuuny anime like FMA is good too.
You should, it'll be worth your time for sure. If anything you should catch up on the episodes at least. I think they are at 145 or something, I can't keep up with it at the moment. I'm not to sure what all you've seen/read series wise so I can't really say.
P.S. I can shoot you in the head from 500 yards. Marine Corps bootcamp kicked ass.

From what I've heard, the original Japanese title translates directly into "Detective Conan", but someone thought that it would be too easy to confuse this anime with "Conan the Barbarian", so they changed the English title to "Case Closed".
Yeah... something like that. More so the guy who made Conan the Barbarian fought against it to have the name changed because of some sort of infringement or some crap like that.

Could I join this fanatic club?
Favourite anime? - Lain SE, Key the metal idol, Hellsing, CC Sakura...
That's a start, now you have to pick a character[technically it's supposed to be four but you're close enough]that isn't taken on the members list. You can find it by clicking the word 'club' in my signature text.
Does anyone know how many episodes s-CRY-ed is? I figure it's around 40 + given the point in the story line which is now at episode 25.
