    Well I meant series but yeah Akira was good (at least I thought it was only a movie)
    DBZ rocked when I was younger, but when I see it now I'm over it. I still get goose bumps when Ichigo enters his "Bankai" or his "hollow" form, and when Naruto gets serious and his chakra goes nuts :rockout:

    Plenty of good ones. Spice and Wolf came out this year and was surprisingly good for also being a lesson in economics. Claymore was a top one last year although they screwed up towards the end. Can't go wrong with Fullmetal Alchemist even if some parts don't make sense.

    But all-time fave I'll probably have to go with "Scrapped Princess." It has pretty much everything in it, and just when you think you know what's going on, a few episodes later you realize you didn't. I think a lot of people avoid it because it has "princess" in the title.

    Why are Jap better? Apart from being unable to understand them? (not that I like either)

    Hellsing is nice though, plus there is a series of Ghost in the Shell so it's valid. Back in the days I used to love the Guyver and Battle Angel Alita as well. And I still love Lupin the 3rd.

    because they edit the hell out of them for english, and it just doesn't sound as good (imo). The energy level seems to be cut down too, when in english they sound like little kids, but in jap versions, the men sound like men... not little boys... watch an episode of Naruto or Bleach in Jap, then the same in English... I think the voices in the Eng ones are horrible actors too... just I dunno, lol you got me going on a tangent now about it.
