>oh yeah,well then is naruto anime?
Yes, though there's a raging debate about whether it's good anime or not.

>He says Believe it every 5 seconds
Yea, that's because of the English dub trying to make up random gibberish to account for the random gibberish that Naruto says in Japanese. In the Japanese version, it's "dattebayo" instead of "Believe it!". It's actually a meaningless phrase ending to make his speaking style more mischievous sounding, which makes "Believe it!" seem even more ridiculous. Kind of like how some anime characters use "nyan!" or "pyon!" to sound cuter, but good dubs don't try to translate them. :icon_rolleyes:

That's the single biggest reason I refuse to watch Naruto in English.

>I only watched it in Japanese, I'm scared of how bad it must be on American TV.
It's tolerable, but not for the whole run of the series. I'd probably be able to take it for about 50 episodes.

They said that dbz was really amazing in Japanese, and it had way more blood and cussing and stuff.They said that when goku would make a fist in america, it would actually be the "the bird" and they would just censor it out.Heard that goku and the gang sounded like girls, or whatnot.

I love Bleach. It's my favorite anime to date. I have just recently started watching naruto again after like 70+ episodes of filler. I have seen rurouni kenshin up untill about episode 70 (Been a while. I watched untill the end of the second major story arc.). I have seen other animes but can't really think of them right now. As of now the only anime I keep up with is Bleach and the new Naruto.

Oh...And as for Dragon Ball, I lost interest after the Freza Saga. When they gained the ability to destroy whole planets it just got a little out of hand. What was next? Grow strong enough to destry an entire galaxy?...

This thread saddens me. You guys (with the possible exception of ~s.o.s~), need to taste some real anime and stop talking about some of the crap that's been dubbed. Here's a list of good ones you can get dubbed (watch them in Japanese with subtitles):

Neon Genesis Evangelion
Trigun
Outlaw Star
Full Metal Alchemist

Now stop being losers and watch some real anime! ;)

I forgot all about these. Loved Full Metal. Didn't like the end too much though. Outlaw Star and Trigun used to come on CN a few years back (when I used to still watch that channel). Watched Neon Genesis a few years ago. Don't remember too much from it though. Most of the other stuff on your list I have never even heard of. From my short list you are probably able to see what types of anime I like. Any recommendations based on that? Keep in mind that Bleach is my favorit anime (Fansubed version).

>Keep in mind that Bleach is my favorit anime (Fansubed version).
You can't go wrong with Bleach. Even the English dub is decent (though it's better in Japanese). If you like Bleach, you'll probably like Darker than Black, Claymore, and Utawarerumono. All but the last are still unlicensed and available on AnimeSuki.

Claymore episode 8 is the most shocking episode i've seen for a while...
don't worry i will not spoil it ;)

Man,vash is cool. They sell a lot of games from japan at videogammecentral.com.They had some Naruto in Japanes, and some rurouni kenshin.devil may cry 4 and dbzbt3 is gonna be sweet too.

Thanks! I just finished watching the first 9 episodes of Darker than Black. It's okay. I prefer more swordsplay though. Just watched the first episode of Claymore and it seems like it is going to be pretty good. I am in the process of getting Utawarerumono. I read the story info at anime news network and it seems like it will be pretty good.

Have you ever seen Tsubasa Chronicle? I didn't even know that there had been another season released...

Oh yeah man,that really helps me out.Has anyone bought any of the foreign games? There was some game that I have been looking for........can't remember......

You guys need to play that psp game:Final fantasy7 Crisis Core.It is really good and it has insane graphics.

0

yes.. here.. I love anime/JAPANIMATED.. ahihihih:twisted:
Anime provides a window into another culture.. that's why I idolized Ozamu Tezuka.. I learned martial arts & principle of zen from watching anime also the traditions of shinto + wider asian mythology..

Why do I get the feeling you haven't watched all these? These aren't your favourites, this is a long list of all animes.
0

If by anime, you mean those cartoons then I like Justice League Unlimited. I also used to watch Martin Mystery until it ended.

0

My favourites have to be:
- Chrno Crusade
- Vampire Knight
- Hantsuki
- Kanokon (friend showed me it, found it funny)
- Basilisk
- Dragon Ball Z ;D (used to watch it when I was a kid)
- Vampire Princess Miyu

All I can think of at the moment.

I don't watch anime, but anime video games are awesome. I love Tales of Symphonia, Tales of the Abyss, Tales of Vesperia, the Star Ocean series, and the Final Fantasy Series. Any one agree?

0

You've got another one :D .... I am somewhat of a recent addition in this club.. but I have covered several series... FMA, Death Note, Gundam Seed, Code Geass, Naruto (and Shippuuden), Bleach, Trinity Blood, Last Exile, Higurashi Ni Haku Koro Ni (and Kai), Samurai Champloo are among my favourite ones....

0

but some of my favs are Death note bleach naruto shippuden and dbz

Serial Experiments: Lain
In my avatar picture, it's the ultimate show ever made. I've even had some of those "hallucinations" before, and have known someone like Lain; making it a rather intense watch.
