    oh, snap!

    SEQUEL! :toast::toast::toast::D

    i think i'll wait til a few more eps are out, and then gladly get it - the wait between eps would kill me.

    if you like Claymore and the Black book brothers... check out Chrono Crusade Its a pretty good anime. I really got into it. Sorta felt like Trigun type feel..

    I.r.a. What do you use to dj??? and when you do, is it a lot of anime stuff or what??

    Also guys. I want to add a section to the first post. "Noobs of Anime" I want to know what everyone has to say about how to get someone into Anime. Anything and everything. PM me if you want or add it here.. I'll try and spend more time going through the 9 pages! God, 9 pages in 3-4 days.... We must like the stuff!?!

    my housemate is a perfect example of irrational anime hate. Her first anime was evangelion and FLCL, and she thinks they were crap and confusing - mostly she hated the endings.

    She refuses to watch any anime at all... except pokemon 'its a cartoon, not anime' - because its in english.

    Anime beginners should buy/download dual audio eps, so they can listen to the english (horrible) dubs until they get used to reading subtitles.

    most anime are series, not movies. The movies are often sequels/remakes of a series.

    More info - Naruto and bleach both fit your requirement, but 'military' is a loose term. The japanese dont have an army thanks to world war II, so military might not be the best term here.


    GITS is probably good like muffin said.

    Full Metal Panic... real good military, Madlax, and also Gunperade.. and Ghost in the Shell i don't know if the last one is spelled right..
    Madlax is a girl that lost her memories and trying to find them while being a mers. pretty deep
    and I haven't watched much of Gun.. so i really can't say, but it was good so far...

    and Mussels I know your feeling.. my ex-fiance watched Esaflowne and was like wtf... so she wouldn't watch any more anime with me.. but then started because of her brother.. lol

    trigun great plot and action, devil may cry-the show is just wicked, Samurai Champloo- great action and funny at times, Inuyasha- if you like watching demons getting hacked up, i liked it, if i remember gungrave was good its been a while since i've watched it, vampire hunter d- awesome movies, i thought the second was the better of the two, of course the final fantasy movies-the spirits within was very militaristic, the second one was based off of FFVII need i say more, and of course death note you may have already seen it but it is by far one of the best ive seen in a long time

    i only just watched trigun - great action show with plot, but its not 'military' - theirs no armies beating each other up.

    Samurai champloo might do it, its a mix of samurai and comedy
