Hi everyone,
thought I'd start a thread where you can recommend anime. Because if *most* of us are into Tenchi there's gotta be at least some common ground! So, I'll start with a new/old favorite: Galaxy Express 999

Crunchyroll Summaries wrote:
"On the road to Megalopolis, Tetsuro is encountered by Count Mecha and watches as his mother is killed. Ironically, he is rescued by a woman who looks remarkably like his mother, and they set off on a journey on the Galaxy Express 999. He begins his trek towards the planet where he’ll be able to receive a mechanical body."

Despite the fact that I quoted the official summary, I love this series. It's just so beautiful! I saw the movie many years ago, and am just now getting to the TV series. It's all available on FUNi's video portal, or Crunchyroll. I love stories of adventure, and I like space - so, this show is perfect for me. Plus, since I like old stuff, the dated feel to the show is great! Despite being '70s, the music and animation are top-notch for the era (almost, but not quite, on par with the movie's animation quality). The music is BEAUTIFUL.

Seriously, folks - if you're into oldies give this a try. Maetel is the classic anime girl who's still got it 30 years later.

Come on, you guys gotta be into stuff that's not Tenchi - even if it's NOT anime, recommend something.

I always really liked Gundam Wing and Yu Yu Hakasho. I haven't branched out very much to tell the truth. Tenchi's really been the only anime that I've really connected with. I'm afraid I don't have many good suggestions. I'm sure someone here could come up with a couple of relatively unknown suggestions.

I can't blame you for only really branching out into the Tenchiverse, that's enough in of itself XD

Anyone ever see the movie "Doomed Megalopolis"? Hee hee.

Any for a show, I'd recommend "Rome". Only two seasons, but being a history major, I found this show to be as accurate as possible, if the Romans had English accents. PERFECT SHOW, historically, cinematographically, acting, everything about it. Crazy it was canceled, funding issue. HBO hasn't quite recovered.

Whereas anime is concerned, hmmm...
If you're bored, try giving STM another shot!! Seriously. Not as bad as you'd think. I'm not into the epic battle and powers that essentially give meaning to the show, instead I enjoy the harem theme and fillers. So STM actually wasn't too bad if you're more interested in the "show" aspect of anime.

Has anyone else seen Shin-Chan? I actually found this to be quite amusing.
