I think everybody should read this before watching the movie, because i don't feel like the film provides enough information about the storyline. And we get all these douchebags like Spoony complaining that the movie makes no sense.

I still haven't read the manga, but I loved the movie. I've been wanting to read it for some time now, but I've never really gotten around to it. Is it exactly the same as the movie, or are there any differences in the plot and characters?

Well, it was only $20, so I can't really complain. Also, I liked the other SMT games that I played, so I expect this one to be good too.

Now an epic game for PS2, FF12. Fucking. Epic. Nuff said.

Ugh, I hated FFXII, it was one of the worst in the series. Nothing is as bad as X-2 though, that made me want to throw a brick at my TV.

They weren't produced in Japan.

It's been forever since I watched that series. Perhaps it's time I break out season one and give it a spin through.
Speaking of oldschool Anime, anyone else remember Magic Knights Rayearth? When I was about 14 it was one of my favorite series. Spawned just about the best RPG game the Sega Saturn had to offer.

Plus Caldina helped quench the furious desire brought about by puberty. <3

Aside from seeing a few episodes when I was a kid, I don't remember much of this Anime aside from the notorious Gundam Mechas. I've met a few people who swear it's the worst popular Anime series, which has kind of deterred me from checking it out...
Mech related, I've yet to watch much of Evangelion despite owning it for so long. It seems as if people either love it or hate it, I've yet to hear someone who wasn't from one extreme or the other.
The character "Gendo" has increased my desire to pop-in the series, as if I were to shave my mustache, age another 20 years, and become an Anime character, I'm pretty sure I'd look a great deal like him:

Sorry to bother you guys, but I just had to share this:
I just watched the fifth episode of Lilpri and my jaw hit the floor.
It eerily reminded me of episode 6 of Sailor Moon and why it was axed from the international series.
Thoughts?

Its a lot different from the movie. I won't spoil it, but its 6 volumes/2000 pages total long, and Akira shows up and starts doing things in the second or third volume, while in the movie they didn't show him a lot.
Its a huge story and the film is basically a condensed version.

So even if one has seen the movie, they're not going to be able to predict what is going to happen.

I know it's a new anime series but wouldn't anyone consider Fairy Tail to be a soon to be top tier series right up there with One Piece,Naruto & Bleach.

It's by the author of Rave Master if that rings any bells

I got 42. But one of those I shouldn't have gotten. I tried to write 'Serial Experiments Lain' and for some reason after I wrote 'se' I got the answer 'Soul Eater' right.

And man. Anime theme songs are terrible, aren't they?

I got 45 on the quiz, and I didn't even watch 90% of the anime's I got.

The majority of the time though I read the manga or had seen images from it before

I can't believe I missed Tsubasa Chronicles

I couldn't spell Rurouni Kenshin right either

If it had a lot of little girls I usually missed it, except for Lucky Star, and Sensei Negima

I got 73 and had SO many "D'oh! I should have known that one!" reactions when I was done.
20 minutes is NOT enough time to ID all those anime.

And man. Anime theme songs are terrible, aren't they?

Some are good, some are bad, some are EPIC.

Surprised how many I remembered simply from the character designs. I missed a bunch though due to forgetting how to spell some of the titles due to panic.

sjdjdjdjd

Naruto and Bleach where the only ones I remembered by the song and not just the actual characters and style themselves.

They were the only ones I actually watched enough to remember it. Berserk struck me to cause I watched an episode recently.

Yeah there is only like 30 episodes of the actual anime episodes which is about 2 arcs but i tell you it's off to one hell of a start and the fights are quite exciting too especially the Natsu vs. Gajeel fight,if anyone wants to check out a preview or so check out some AMVs on youtube,there isn't much but there are some.

Lol, it's a shounen. Of course you're gonna get horribly drawn out fight sequences, and to make these last as many episodes as they can they'll level the villains in "form sequence". Prime example: Freiza, Cell and Buu.

But at least DBZ was good.

Each form in DBZ ushers in a new epic battle

In other series like Bleach it's just a gimmick that usually renders the fight before it void

I like Bleach but most of the time the 'ascended' form isn't all that impressive.

My favorite is Wabisuke (Apologizer). Everything it hits doubles in weight, and with each successive hit it doubles again and again. Plus it's user's hairdo is tight.

I agree, some of them are really cool like the above mentioned and I thought Soifon's two hit kill shot was neat and suited her well.

Other's, most disappointingly the protagonists, are very simple and are something uninspired like Rukia's is 'Ice' and Ichigo's just shoots beams.

All the 2nd string characters are much more inspired oddly enough

forgot to add that some of them were dead give aways. you wouldn't even have to have seen the show to know the characters. a good number of re-occurring characters as well.

it was more obscure titles and less main stream it would be a lot more fun.

That's definitely how I got most of them.

If it hadn't shown the character, I would have gotten maybe... Five?

I always skip the opening credits when I'm watching a show. Unless the song is really good, like in Bebop.
