I guess for me, part of what I loved about the over-budget look (I liked this in Resurrection F too) was that it was the complete opposite of a lot of Super's TV anime version's atrociously bad animation that wouldn't pass muster for most so-so series (especially if you saw the TV version like I did, I think the blu-rays upgraded it a bit), nevermind one of the most legendary anime series of all time. Broly is kinda how I wish the whole series looked.

Spoiler:

I can get the disappointment at seeing Vegeta and Goku fighting Broly cut so short, I was hoping Broly and Frieza would throw down more than they did, but for me it also papered over it because this finally canonized Gogeta, was the first time we saw Gogeta as a non-SSJ, and I totally expected the gag where they fuck it up and get Fat/Skinny Gogeta because that's part of the "thing" whenever Fusion comes up.

I think at the time too, I was starting to worry that we weren't gonna get Green Broly, and then he came out while fighting Gogeta and I Shiny/thrilled 'ed

The weird part of it is that the writer actually has talent for writing sports anime. I thought it would just be a throwaway tits-and-ass anime, but it treats the concept super seriously, builds an entire faux-sport out of it, actually has character development and storylines and it was like "Why?"

Has anyone seen that sequel series they've made to GITS: SAC? The reviews are a bit confusing.

I have them all on the backlog but one of my major gaps is that I've never even seen the original GITS Lurking/sketchy

BTW, you don't need to, SAC is its own thing (it actively tried to be a middle point between the original manga and the films).

This is every '80s mecha/fighting anime stereotype, but it sure looks nice:

I rarely post here because my anime tastes are eclectic and I rarely watch whatever is the "new hot thing" this season. That's not because I'm a snob or anything -- my first anime was literally "STREET FIGHTER II: THE ANIMATED MOTION PICTURE" unless someone counts syndicated episodes of VOLTRON in the 80's -- it's just how I roll.

So aside for random Lupin the Third TV specials I was catching up on, the latest anime series I am watching is a classic, "Here Is Greenwood" from 1991-1992. It's a weird romantic comedy OAV series, and probably my first one. I'm midway through it and it's been...interesting.

The third episode had a reference to "Castle of Cogliostro," one of the best known Lupin the Third movies, though. I can't ever escape him! Laughing

I actually own every single Lupin III TV special, and animated film, released from 1978 to 2003, thanks to various releases (many of which are now out of print). I have a few more here and there (like the recently dubbed 2011 TV special or some of the post-"Woman Named Fujiko Mine" films) but it recently hit me that I have that entire run on DVD now.

I finished "Here Is Green Wood." It was only 6 episodes but I work and do other things (like write comic reviews online). It, along with "Kimagure Orange Road" and "Maison Ikkoku" was usually on the short list of "romantic comedy anime" back when I was getting into the genre in the 90's, and it's easily the shortest. I've seen a lot of anime with some romantic subplots but it's really my first one which wasn't a fighting/shounen/superhero/supernatural/satire style thing. It's pretty nutty to be honest, and in some ways is very much a product of 1991-1993. But it's probably aged better than some shows.

The gist, for anyone unaware, is that Kazuya has entered an all boys high school in general, and it's weirdest dorm in particular, in Green Wood. He joined late in the semester due to a variety of ailments, due in some part to the fact that his older brother (who is also the school nurse) married his first crush. As he tries to get over this, he's joined by three of the weird residents of Green Wood; Shun, a typical "boy who looks like a hot girl and is played for laughs due to this," Mitsuru, a self-confident and self-described "ladies man," who razzes Kazuya a lot, and Shinobu, an icy and aloof intellectual whose cousin is a vengeful mafia hanger-on. Most of the episodes are self contained, dealing with Kazuya's intro, Shinobu's cousin, filming a "Record of Lodoss War"-style D&D satire, and being haunted by ghosts of lovesick schoolgirls. The final two episodes are where things get a tad more serious as Kazuya finds his "second love" with a delinquent named Miya. Geeks may be interested to know that Kazuya is voiced by Johnny Yong Bosch under a stage name, better known as the second Black Ranger, Adam Park, on MMPR. Other VA's of some renown are Lex Lang, Wendee Lee, Sam Reigel and Julie Ann Taylor.

It's a fine fit for my eclectic and totally random (and mostly old school) anime collection.

I finally caught up on Sega Lord X's video game content on youtube, so now, it's time to start the great Bleach rewatch. I watched the series once, never finished the final arc before it was cancelled, and never watched the filler segments or the movies (which I intend to do both this time).

After many years and much saving, I am finally binge watching InuYasha. It will be quite a long haul. Cool

Thanks! It's become the 2nd longest TV series I own on DVD, second only to "Married...With Children." But it's only a few episodes longer than the 1987 "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" cartoon, which I binged about 2 years ago. It's just a matter of taking it one day and a few episodes at a time with my 50+ hour a week work schedule. As of today I am 8 episodes in and liking it fine. Thumbs-up

Well, good luck! It's becoming a classic, I think.

Forgive the off-topic, but why do you have "Marriage...with children" on DVD?

InuYasha is already a classic, and a well known, popular anime. I just am continuing my trend of only getting into certain "hot" anime about 5-10 years past their peak of popularity.

As for "Married...With Children," I just love the sitcom and found it very funny. I started watching it as a kid in syndication and still know many of the punchlines by heart. That doesn't mean I agree with the philosophies of the characters as being accurate to life, of course. But a sense of humor is unique and I like it. As a kid it was a dream to own a series like that, or "Batman '66" and when the opportunity arose, I jumped on it. Binging gives me more control than syndication (especially since I missed a lot of the last 2-3 seasons).

This probably goes without saying if you've seen it before, but...

The Soul Society Arc of Bleach is so effing HYPE

@Datelessman: I see. That was very interesting (no sarcasm intended).

Going back to the topic, I'm watching Double Decker because of its exhuberance, ¡I missed this kind of enthusiasm in character design! (in spite of things like the protagonist's face being so stilyzed he kinda looks like Voldemort in some sequences). It's to buddy cops what Tiger and Bunny was to superheroes. There's this huge city that feels both glittering and industrial, a drug that gives some people destructive mutations so it's popular with violent criminals, and a special police corps to deal with those through high-powered and sometimes chemical weaponry, where our regular policeman protagonist with dreams of grandeur and buddy cop adventures gets transferred after accidentally getting involved with one of their operations.

My only complaint is that i barely have gotten past the second episode because my wifi is too shitty to watch it on high resolution.
