    there is a new X-Men Cartoon called "Wolverine and the X-Men" coming out in Spring 2009 I think it's based on the X-Men Evolution visuals? also new X-Men movie called "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" with Hugh Jackman reprising his role.

    American Anime is the form of Anime like Space Ghost CTC, Disney, and more popular like Family Guy and The Simpsons.
    It was the return of Disney and their forces that made American Anime what it is today. I put the fact of there being two different types because of how:
    • Japanese Anime there is more of a kiddish style, bigger eyes, and form of which most of their anime involves teens.
      To where
    • American Anime, is more built towards family and adults.

    oh yeah! its a form of X-Men Evolution. I'll get more on it when they show it at the next comic book event. The big one... And the movie looks to be a good one. Its going to make its way to have X-Men 4 show its face, or the Magneto spin off that is in the "Dark".

    magneto... magenta... its all the same :p

    An amusing anime i just watched was gakuen alice. Its mostly a kids theme, but its fun to watch with a decent amount of humour - its something like a child-aged X-men show. (as in the characters are 10 year olds) mixed with teenaged level humour.

    Just watched Robotech:Shadow Chronicles on Space Channel (Canada). Ahh, I was flooded with memories. I watched the original series back when it first aired in the 80's. Really hope they produce a full series again of this. I read the books years ago and would love to see it put on the screen. I think you can put me down for Robotech as my favorite series.

    nice nice. you are aware that robotech is actually three animes mangled together? they did an awesome job on it, but they actually got three unrelated shows (all macross universe, but not tied together) and did some edits to tie them together.

    Not bagging it out, i only watched it recently and thought to share. i liked it even with the oddities.

    Im all for shojo anime. Cant watch too much serious or action packed anime.
    You should check out Honey & Clover if you havent already seen it very light hearted/comedic the perfect slice of life anime.

    Oh, I knew that they were originally seperate, unrelated, stories, even when I was younger. I'm sure they were great (probably better) in their original Japanese (and I could probably get them if I really wanted to), but as I was 13 or 14 when I first saw the shows, it's how I do and want to remember the series.

    Yeah I saw it. Bebop is one of my favorites. And I also actually like it better in English. It's one of the very rare cases where the english actors did a better job.
