There's a con around here every summer which is creatively named "anime con". I went there last year because Yoshihiro Takahashi, the creator of the Ginga series was there. This year Spoony is going to be there so I'm going again since I like some of his videos, even though he's kind of insane.

Spoony was at a con here last summer but I couldn't make it. Hope they try to get him again.

He has calmed down a lot since he got that new girlfriend.

I've had Akira on DVD sitting around for a while and I finally decided to watch it. Good film, but I reckon I'll have to watch it again at some point to understand it fully. My attention wandered a few times during the film, which probably didn't help. I think it's one of the better anime films I've seen.

Well it's a 2-hour-long (I actually don't remember how long it is but whatever) movie adaptation of a manga the size of a phone book. Details were lost, so you might also need to check up a thing or two online to fill all the holes.
Still a good movie, as long as you don't watch it dubbed...by the way, was your copy dubbed or subbed?

Pretty sure it had Jap and English audio. I chose English, as I usually do. I never watch things subbed unless I have to. I think people really blow the whole "crappy English voice acting" thing out of proportion. If you're suggesting the Akira voice acting was bad, I don't really see how. At no point did I think it was noticeably bad. If it makes a difference, I was watching the remastered version, which I gather has a different dub to the original version.

But yea, I rarely watch things subbed. I don't like having to read subtitles because it means I literally can't take my eyes off the screen without missing something.

I've just seen the ending to a really depressing game. The only other mediums of entertainment that I've been that mind blowingly depressed over are anime and music. I already have 2 songs which will depress me for all my life but I need an anime to watch. Can you guys recommend me some really depressing animes?

Bokurano was the most depressing one I've seen
Casshern Sins can be pretty depressing at times, but its not that good
Those are the only 2 I know that are depressing the whole way through

I went to an anime con last summer. Full of sweat and awkwardness and overpriced merch. I'd say they're only worth going if someone you admire is going to have a panel or something.

Scott McNeil gets an invite every year and apparently shows up a lot. Yuri Lowenthal will be there aswell and the cast of TeamFourStar too.

Rainbow is pretty depressing, though it is quite optimistic also.

I read the first manga and I do agree with this there's a LOT of shit going on which requires more then one viewing.

One of my favorite anime films. It gets even better when you think about how anime was at the time it was made. An anime of such quality back then was almost unheard of.

Been watching Baccano! every once in a while. Just got done with episode 5. I quite like it but I don't really have much clue as to what's going on. It just throws several characters at you with no real explanation and they all have their own motives. I assume that's intended though? It's intriguing enough got me to want to keep watching.

Im at the final atrium in Final Fantasy 9. However only Setzer....sorry, ViVi is at level 50. There have to be side quests I missed or some place to grind on enemies. I can't beat Kuja with my current team. I need to level up!

Team im going to take to fight Kuja:
Zidane (currently 49)
Eiko (currently 39)
Freya (currently 49)
Setzer (currently 50)

I changed Vivi's name to Setzer because I thought Vivi was a stupid name. Meanwhile Setzer was awesome in FF6, so I named him after a totally boss character.

If you guys really have some time to blow you owe it to yourselves to watch Maison Ikkoku since it probably the best anime in its genre. Don't be turned off by the fact that it is an anime from the 1980's or that it is 96 episodes long because I swear that it is all worth it. It pays of in the in with the absolute best anime ending of all time.

You really don't, I've finished the game about 5 times and I always beat Kuja around level 40 or so, 50 is pretty optimal at that point. Plus you'll go up about 5 levels while fighting through memoria. Finish chocobo hot & cold if you haven't, after that it's only worth grinding if you plan to fight Ozma.

Ah, cool. I'll need to watch some more today. Been a few days since I last watched any of it. Are their any other animes that have a sort of mafia theme to them? I've always enjoyed gangster films and Baccano seems to be making good use of the theme.
