Ill say it once like i did to another person, Work + college suck ass!

You have not really convinced me to watch this movie but since i don't take much convincing, i may have to break out of my protected shell and face the unknown that is, innocence.  Though on a different yet related subject, what is your fav episode of GITS?  To be honest i have 2, and one is poker face i believe, where the episode tells the story of how the sniper, Saito, first became part of the team.  Another great episode is the one where they hide cocaine in the lil toy animals and in that episode, Motoko offers sex to a boy who is is curious about her having sex if she is a robot.  Will never forget that scene.  Now that i think about it, i really like all the episodes in the 2nd gig.  Kuze is just a great protagonist.

Hakusho has influenced much of the anime we know today.  It really influenced bleach, some claim bleach copies Hakusho to much, and it even influenced Naruto.  I'm sure it also impacted many other animes as well.  I mean, Hakusho's main arc is a tournament and then from their the arcs are built based on defeating a strong guy then moving onto an even stronger villian.   Dbz and Hakusho are closely related in that aspect.  Reminds me of kenshin now that i think about it.  But nonetheless, it is simply classic.  Greta fights and witty humor throughout the entire anime.  Also great dub and it stays true to the characters the entire time.   It may seem long but it goes by real quick.

So then you agree with me Motoko's character does her injustice? Well if its about Batou......I may have a change of heart but doubt it.  I'm just to accustomed to the series design that i don't see how i could like Innocence's unfamiliar design.

Ha, indeed they wont disappear ever.  I give you that.  Though Kenshin is a pretty great series.  When i watched it, i had the feeling that this anime could appeal to multiple different people.  It has many different genres and pretty much has just about everything awesome.  I forgot about Kenshin honestly though, it is about 90 eps if i remember.  Also another one to consider is Yu Yu Hakusho.  That anime is about 112 eps.  Yu Yu Hakusho is a classic.  There are a lot of girls who even like the series.  I used to think kenshin was better but after just recently watching Hakusho, I'm not so sure anymore.

As I've learned, these unknown series tend to be rather surprising in quality.  Like i just watched Planetes and it was simply brilliant.  The story was phenomenal.  I could not believe i never heard of the series before and was shocked to see the count was rather low for such a good series.  There are some surprisingly good series out there.  Though i have a hard time with 12 ep shows.  Like i don't think it's quite enough.  Now 26 ep is almost perfect for me.  There is usually a great story and plenty of character depth to satisfy my needs in 26 parter.

The ending to Mnemosyne was rather plain.  When i think about it though, there really was no "plot" to the anime so technically there was no proper way to end it.  The anime was just one big angels vs immortals face off and who could kill who.  Aside form the face off, you had torture and sexual content and there is the story.  Having said that, the ending did not bother me really.  The series was satisfying enough i did not really even think about the ending i was so ecstatic about all the chaos.  I mean, i could not believe when Rin went through a FUCKING plane engine.  Yes she is immortal but i did not think even she could survive that.   She lost her memory because of it but it was awesome.  Just an awesome anime.

Also cool to see ya like manga.  Grant it, it's not much but its cool.  Berserk, good man for reading that.  Also Franken Fran is a pretty goofy series.

Let me give a different take on Innocence.  From the looks of it, the visuals may be very unique but they seem way out of the franchise for me.  Like, overall through the series and all movies, i would say the animation has been true in each and overall the same.  Then comes along this movie that appears like a totally different making.  get what im saying?  Well i should not really be judging it since i haven't seen it.  Innocence, to me, is one those animes I want to watch because it is part of my favorite series yet i will never look forward to watching it.  Thus i will probably never watch it.  I mean, Motoko looks like a totally different being, her look is inconceivable!

Err my mistake, I did not know how else to put the "hardly no other series" bit.  So basically, like you said, you don't stick with one genre and explore many others through multiple series?  I understand the fact of wanting to watch short series.  I have watched a few myself and sometimes i just want something simple, like a 6 part series or something.  If you heard the story was incredible, would you even consider getting into the series?  Example (One Piece).  Though most series with many episodes are shounen and really popular, hence the long running.  So then, do you just stay away from popular series and find the "hidden gems"? 

Ahh i see.  My list doesn't seem that daunting either.  As much as i enjoy anime, im glad to have accumulated a nice list which looks promising.  Though i take my sweet time with watching some series, unless it is extremely impressive.  If so then it only takes me a few days to power through it. 

LMfao, just saw this, was thinking about the anime when i wrote about a 6 part series above, but Apos is on your hate list.  I was pissed when i saw that he was a......half breed.

Never read the manga.  Though i did try at one point but it was basically the equivalent to read a book with no pictures.  I mean i dont mind books at times, but that is not what i wanted.  It was not real appealing to me like the anime was.  The anime was genius.  Especially the 2nd gig, that was by far my favorite one.  Though there were some high crimes in the first one that were very cool.  Great series overall. AS for the movies, the 1st one is a classic.  Can not go wrong with it.  Never saw the second one.  I have this inner feeling that it will ruin ghost in the shell if i watch it.  Ill still be a huge fan of the series, but the movie wont live up to what i have labeled GITS already.  AS for the 3rd move GITS: SSS that was a sweet movie.  Very well played out and still through a couple loops in there.

Yeha i figured you watched many movies and hardly no series.  I can see your view on long series.  There are to many things that can go wrong in a series for one to be disappointed with it.  Liek maybe the ending will suck and you wasted all that fucking time.  I have watched idk around 60 movies out of my count.  Movies just go faster and you still have a good plot and fond characters, if the movie is a good experience.  Sometimes a series is daunting but a movie you can watch on a whim and it wont take long.   SO i feel ya on that.

though i dont think your watch list i big enough.  Think you'll ever get around to denting the big list?

Motoko Kusanagi fans UNITE.  Sw your sig in forums and thought to comment about it here.  Looks to be Motoko, i think ive seen the pic b4 but it looks sweet in a sig type form.  She is a badass female for sure.

Also, you have watched the same amount of anime yet only...3 weeks O_O.  well i looked and there is alot of specials and such and hardly no episode count i guess.  It looked funny when i first saw it.  till next time.
