    mononoke is set during japan's edo period, which stretched from 1603 to 1868.during this
    time, the tokugawa shogunate governed from the capital city of edo, now know as tokyo.
    they established a new order in which the samurai were brought under theit rule, as were all those
    beneath them

    the term "mononoke" was also left untranslated.mononoke differ from other japanese spirits in name,
    and scholars like to argue about what differentiates them beyond this.
    "spirit" is and adequate definition

    I just remembered now
    Girl from Hell
    One of the best. Its an horror anime. The hell girl get revenge for you by taking the one you want to take revenge on to hell,in exchange for your soul going to hell after you die your natural death. You contact her by her website which appears at midnight.
    Really a must watch.

    depends on their interests. I love death note, because psychology interests me. Its all about human vs. human, and not superpowers or giant mecha.

    People who want mecha, eureka 7. People who want mecha combined with... awesome and win? macross 7.

    People who want mecha and love over the top action/upbeat shows, its gurren lagann.

    Each show is different and suited to a different person - reviews rarely carry across the 'soul' of a show, and you have to watch them to understand them. If i were to tell you a summary of gurren lagann it would sound stupid - but the excellent way it pulled it off makes it one hell of a show if you go in there with no expectations, anod no clue whats coming ahead.

    There was 2 live action Death Note movies from what I took from the pictures.. my internet is slow because of downloading or I'd post places to find them...

    @mussels, I'm there with you on that.. but it was made by the japanese so I believe it could be all right... when the Japs make remakes of anything they do a good job.. Hell, most of the horror flicks I watch and love have been from japan... but don't ask me to say the names! lets just say they where the org. and us Americans screwed them up!

    Just thought I would let you guys know, ADV Filmes (the biggest anime film producer) has chose to be Blu-ray exclusive. However, I've heard from a lot of people anime movies don't look good in HD.
    Cold Storm says thanks.

    Gundam 00 is the first Gundam series to be shown in purely HD :)

    Gundam Wing was made to be a lot more...showy I suppose. It was meant to appeal to the kids, which is why they missed out 99% of the technology and went for purely action.

    If you watch the original Gundam, yes the Gundam is powerful, but it's NOT invincible and it shows stuff like it running out of power. Problems in development. That kind of thing. There is a lot more depth to the mecha side of things. Wing is just action and story. Nothing more.

    Gundam 00, I guess you could say is there chance to get Wing right. The Gundam are essentially invincible, however any one who has watched Episode 15 will notice that they are not all that powerful, and there is still technology behind the Gundams that we have not seen yet.

    Wing was as much a failure as G Gundam in terms of being an actual Gundam series. Well at least that's my opinion, and the opinion of many others.

    Yes, watch the length of time of download...it you think it's takin too long its probably a virus. If it looks like pron it is probably a virus. Stick to the anime and it's (mostly) safe.
