Hey, love your profile, remember you on some podcast 2 years ago but didnt think I'd find you on Anime Planet by chance.  Just been having a gander at your reviews now.  You make some great points about shows, when it comes to asthetics and even chactor's psyche.

Right you are: Akira is indeed fanservice for manga fans, and a pretty good fanservice considering how well-animated it is. I have no problem with that. The problem is it's hailed by almost everyone as a part of anime elite, which only creates false expectations because this movie clearly doesn't belong there: it's just a well-animated action flick with interesting yet half-baked ideas and primitive, unlikeable characters if you view it as a stand-alone work.

I haven't watched Batman the Series yet. However, I have watched Animatrix, and they seem to be very similar, at least when it comes to the overall concept. So, if you like Batman, try Animatrix too: it's also not perfect, but enjoyable nevertheless.

Well, the first thing isn't a problem with Utena, at least if I understand correctly what you mean. The characters in the series are all flawed in one way or another yet their flaws make perfect sense, and all of the characters develop in the course of the story. Also, I was never annoyed with how drama & angst were presented in the show or how the characters behaved even though some of their actions were really twisted & immoral - again, because that all made perfect sense.

As for sexual liberties, well, they are present in the anime, and if they put you off, you may very well dislike it. However, I need to mention that Utena herself is not a lesbian - she's perfectly straight, and there's nothing sexually twisted about her: it all has to do with other characters in the show.

Overall, it's obviously your own choice whether to watch it or not. The last thing I want to say on this matter is that in my personal case this anime turned out much better than I expected, and I really enjoyed it.
