man, that sounds like a lifetime of sitting down and watching tv......

Or just 20 minutes a day. ;) For some time.

Anyway, there are some more sentimental openings I loved in the past. :D What a sentimental person I am! 8)

Hmm...didn't think a forum with an average age of 40+ would be regularly watching kids cartoons either... :)

True. When I watched Astro Boy I was 8 years old. I'm 53 now.


Sweeeet, and human 8) And there was a nice song fir the third episode in Japanese :D

Astro Boy had the best song:

There you go Astro Boy.
On your flight into space.
Rocket high, through the sky
What adventures soon you will make.

Astro Boy bombs away
On your mission today
Here's the countdown, and a blast off
Everything is GO Astro boy.

Astro Boy as you fly,
Strange new worlds you will find
Atom sound jet propelled,
Fighting monsters high in the sky.

there's exceptions, though:






more intelligent people wonder why they cosplay and put it on the internet, or allow it to get on the internet. I suppose these two are the more intelligent type?.......

just look at their pondering countenances.....

Well, I liked those. :D But for some reason all those fans are too thick-legged, no one from the  sailormoon series has such. :D



And what is that?

The Japanese are actually light-skinned...like china.

And I think they like to seem light-skinned and use powder, too...just look at those geishas that are considered the beauty ideals.

They are actually normal, but our society loves skinny models that die from hunger. Like this.

nah, probably just the media likes it.

ok yeah, that looks a bit weird. So their feet is actually a part of their leg instead of something that connects to their leg....... i'll have to take a note- how not to draw  ;D

I'm nearly 40 and have watched a lot of anime in the last few years  8). There's a lot of junk (e.g. Speed Grapher, of which I could only stand to watch one episode), but a few shows definitely approach the level of high art. It helps if you understand the Japanese visual style and dramatic conventions, of course, which can be rather more sophisticated than those in Western animations.

Top recommendations:
1. Haibane Renmei
2. Azumanga Daioh
3. Boogiepop Phantom
4. Gunslinger Girl
5. Planetes
6. Fruits Basket
7. Genshiken
8. Niea_7
9. Gundam Seed

Of the anime shows I've seen, these should satisfy any intelligent adult who can overcome their preconceptions. Mushi-shi may also warrant a spot on this list, after I finally see the whole thing.

I liked Hellsing, though it didn't live up to its potential. Chobits is good too, but I didn't like the fudged mystical ending, too often seen in this genre.
