Actually, anime is short for 'animeshon'.

I don't watch Avatar though because I'm not 13 years old.

Oh come on, it's a pretty good show

In fact, it benefits from not being Japanese because it carries with it more maturity than the average shonen anime and isn't littered with bad jokes and fanservice.

Avatar has gags and sometimes it is funny but it doesn't try or force the jokes. The focus is always on the characters and their development.

Isn't that what good anime is about?

Plus the well choreographed action scenes are sweet too.

I've never seen a full episode so honestly I'm just talking out my ass on that subject. I don't plan on tuning into Nickelodeon anytime soon, tho.

It get's a lot better in the second season IMO because Earthbending and Earthbenders are badass. Not to mention Toph is one of my favorite characters in the series.

Some of the episodes in the first season seem a bit pointless because they're almost entirely character development instead of plot advancement. They ditched that for season 2 though because by then we already connected with the main cast and even the majority of the villains.

It also is one of only a few series I've watched that wraps up nicely. Avatar is as atypical to Nick as you can get.

That intrigues me. I may delve into this series a bit.

Each season is less than 20 episodes and there are three seasons so it shouldn't eat up as time as other series


Anyway, who has seen the original Hellsing series and who agrees Alucard is the most badass vampire character of all time?

I've been considering getting into Hellsing, but yes Alucard is badass

It has a similar premise, but I wouldn't say it 'ripped it off'. They're very different in terms of content, style, and tone.

The monster who fights other monsters premise has been used in a bunch of things. Vampire Hunter D can't copyright that idea.

Off the top of my head I can think of:

Hellsing
Soul Reaver
Angel
Blade
Blood+
(True Blood?)

And the idea was inevitable. It's just "Hey, what if in Dracula, van Helsing was also a vampire?"

Prepare to have your favorite anime changed.

I just finished it last night, first thoughts are pretty damned awesome (though [SPOILERS] last ep or 2 got a bit stupid with all the dying and not-quite-dead-ing going on)

Loved it, but not sure whether i'd rank it over Cowboy Bebop. Obviously both are pretty damned similar but I think the mushrooms ep of Cowboy Bebop just nudges it to first over Samurai Champloo.

Champloo is visually better than Bebop, mostly because it's newer and had higher producton values. But I agree that Cowboy bebop had a lot going for it that Champlooo doesn't. The plot in CB is better IMO. That, and despite being a hip-hop fan, Jazz is more epic. 23 Skidoo, hepcat.

why do anime guys get away with that!

First of all, the only thing Hellsing has in common with those is vampires, which have been found in many many works of fiction for a very long time. Second, I'm pretty sure Hellsing was around before Blood.

But they're not even similar.

there are no original animes anymore like they had with monster rancher. meta bots, gundam wing escalfone, or things like beyblade.

Oh, so you're joking, then.

This is what irratates me about some anime fans, modern anime is ripping off something else, wheather its vampires, mechs, magic, or other shit like that. I'm sure someone mentioned it before, but just because they have a similar plot/style doesn't automatically mean it's a ripoff of an older anime.
Oh, FYI, Hellsing {The OVA} is the shit, Boobs, Blood, Nazis, Star Wars references for the lolz, you can't go wrong with that, but don't just take my word for it.

Also, this may be me, but everyone seems to missing another anime with is somewhat similar to CB,It's long, underrated, forgotten cousin, Outlaw Star, and If I remember correctly, it was the same studio that made CB.

That's enough plugs for one day.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

They don't even have that, really, especially a similar style. just vampires.

Well, you ain't been 'round these here parts long. Everyone knows that one. I still love that show. People seem to compare this show to Cowboy Bebop a lot because they think of it as a space bounty hunter show, even though Gene and Jim aren't really bounty hunters. They take odd jobs and happen to catch a bounty in like two episodes, one of those episodes having nothing to do with that beyond the one scene where Gene apprehends the guy (Death Rob), and the other pretty much being a filler episode about their tight money situation.

I think when I was 13 I had the tendency to respect my elders.

And looking back, I think I had pretty good taste in music when I was that young. As far as I remember, my favourite band was Radiohead.

Where do you guys usually go to watch anime?

For the longest time I've never actually found a decent site to watch anime, I'm fairly certain there are legal databases of the shows to watch.

I figure I might as well try to get into series that aren't adaptations of manga. I might even start watching Saiyuki and various other shows I haven't seen in forever like Yu Yu Hakusho.
