    Because Zeta is the best Gundam series ever...

    Let me guess...you watched Gundam Wing on Cartoon Network? Yeah, I hated it too.

    I am sorry guys. I do not watch much Anime, I have heard of mostly all the characters and series mentioned except for Ghost. Did you mean Ghost in a shell?

    DEFINATELY!


    (Please note that Tkpenalty is an extreme death note addict/fan.)

    I'd recommend downloading the Japanese subbed version and not the dub thats in english. The Japanese sub is far better in every sense... Anyway, I have yet to see an anime that is consistently better than Death Note. Everything else, is wishy washy in comparison. (Kira ftw)

    +1 on hating Gundam Wing. Gundam Wing had a great idea. But it had a really crapped up storyline. Gundam 00 can be called as the spiritual successor with a similar thing going on. (Done MUCH better in this case). On Gundam 00, I note how many things its similar to, FMP (with Gauron/Kashim, but now Sarshes/Setsuna F Seiei), Death Note (the reaction from the world to celestial being), Gundam Wing (with the technology thats godlike + science).

    Hey don't worry about that man. If they get pissy about it, then I'll find a way to clam them down... lol and as Ghost I ment Ghost in the Shell.

    There is a lot of yeah and no's on the whole Gundam thing. I, for one, says "yeah". I'll watch all of them over and over again. I'm big on mech building so the whole Gundam series.

    @jr, get with me on msn and we'll talk anime.. get you in to some good stuff!!!

    All right guys, thought about something here... for anyone that wants a signature picture of "Anime Nation" then chime me a PM. I'll make a custom one for you. This way we don't have bickering back and forth on what needs to be on the "signature".
    @Jr, keep doing what your doing. I'll want to post a signature picture for everything! Anime is our love, and we must remember, its all DRAWING.

    if you love mecha, you need to see macross 7, eureka 7, and gurren lagann (full name is tengen toppa gurren lagann)

    Those are 4 of the best mecha shows.

    Oh yeah they are! I've watched everyone and I'm trying to watch eureka 7. There is one I can't think about right now.. maybe, Mussels, you'll help me.. There was 5 parts that made this one big Mecha. The guy that plioted one of the arms, came to them to find out about his lost sister. I believe they were called "knights"
    And for the others its not voltron! it was made I believe 2006.

    My god man! you knew my weakness! You found the show that I watch in serect! lol nah, its not that.. its full anime there... There was a girl in the tower and later in the first season she came down and she too had her own mecha. They had hot girls also if that helps anyone!?!

    And to set everyone straight, I DO NOT LIKE POWER RANGERS....

    mononoke is another show


    here some info about the show

    Mononoke develops a character who was created in the "Bake Neko" arc of Ayakashi ~ Japanese Classic Horror. It revolves around a mysterious Medicine Seller’s battles with restless spirits called Mononoke. He carries a sword which can exorcise these spirits but is powerless to use it unless the people involved admit to the events that have created the spirits. The elements form (name of the spirit) truth (what occurred) and Regret (what makes the spirits act as they do) must be present. Silence must be broken and those involved must reveal all that has been kept hidden.

    this show is not for everyone

    Cooler: It sounds like a pretty nice show to watch on my standards. I'll have that as one of the 300+ that I want to look at.
    BTW. I was searching for pictures on Google, and I found this Anime site where you can watch anime... Anyone heard of it?!?!

    baka neko means stupid cat :D mononoke is more or less monsters. stupid cat monsters ftw!

    'arc of akayashi' is whats confusing me. many anime use that terminology to seperate the various storylines, so is that part of another show, or actually a full title of a show?

    I think it sounds like a nice little piece to look at my self... Mussels, out of ALL your collection, What do you say to someone who's never watched Anime before to start?
    Or to anyone, Where should a person start when they watch anime?
