    So anyone watching shana III??
    It's nothing short of epic and fairly unpredictable unlike most shounen shows where we know the hero will just kick the bad guy's but, but in shana its hard to predict any moves because there are so many players in the game with such different strengths that watching all of them in stage is a wonder, and the music plays in perfect symphony...

    Alright Anime Nation, I need your help. There's a anime that I recall watching years ago that was pretty damn sweet, but the name eludes me. Here's what I remember:

    There's a small fishing village/town
    Aliens begin to attack the village
    The aliens didn't know that the village was preparing for their invasion for quite some time
    The town is kicking their asses
    Almost everyone in the town is a badass

    I'm pretty sure it was a late 90s anime, but I can't remember the name of it for the life of me! The animation was pretty damn good to boot! Please Anime Nation, help me out!

    Definitely not Tsuritama, for reasons said here. The aliens were pretty huge, but got wrecked by the townsfolk who were normal sized if I remember correctly, so not a mech anime. I think it may have been subbed by Dattebayo? Don't take my word on it though.

    The main character wore an all black school uniform and never smiled, I think.

    EDIT: Found it! It was Shingu: Secret of the Stellar Wars, made in 2001. Here's the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bM0J26C1Uc

    From what I remember it was pretty damn good. It's been bugging me for over a year since I reformatted my computer.

    I like the style, i watched a lot of 90's anime, like slayers, ranma 1/2 (late 80's early 90's), and many, many more, moe had not be discovered yet but there are many treasures to watch like nadia too or even now and then, here and there from 99...

    Anime these days is mostly romantic harem fanservice comedies that rely mostly on sex appeal to sell...

    CS, fantastic children is a fantastic modern retro anime, you should give it a try, it's something not much different from Nadia which i watched last year and it was great for it's more than 20 yo...

    Edit: BRS ep 5, totally vicious, this one takes no shortcuts to hand down a beating...

    And best part:
    Insane Black Rock Shooter??
    BRS is already badass and vicious, but IBRS??
    Shit will get crazy...

    I bought a BRS nendo at around the time the OVA was released. I don't really like the other...otherworld characters though.
