The origin of my avatar: Space Knight Tekkaman, from back in the day (i.e. the fabulous '70s).

You can see a little of it if you play Tatsunoko VS. Capcom (Wii).

Generator Gawl, and maybe Record of Lodoss War.

Also, anything Osamu Tezuka.

Kara No Kyoukai for example, I really enjoyed. Being a fan of a lot of the TYPE MOON stuff since their first anime title, Tsukihhime, I really enjoyed their stuff. they apparently had all these concurrent and parallel worlds going on and a lot of it didn't make sense, but it was interesting to watch a series that had a lot of the tsukihime (and a few Fate/Stay night) characters appear in this weird parallel world series. The visuals were ungodly lush and it was pure eye candy for me at the time. I only wish they made the OTHER Fate movie (I think you can find the mock preview, "Fate/PROTOTYPE" if you search for it). as well.


Aw yeah. You sir, have good taste especially on Fate/Prototype, I really want to see more of male Saber, nicer Gil, even more badass Lancer, and Rider.

Answering the question, I feel that GTO is falling in the back of everyone's minds. Same goes for Monster (well, not really, since Johan is still plaguing everyone's nightmares).

Pandora Hearts and Kaiji come to mind as well.

I finally got around to Watching the Record of Lodoss War OVAs again this weekend.

-Story is still as good as I remembered.

The animation holds up fairly well, (Especially the Dragon designs, remember I'm talking about the OVAs not Chronicles of the Heroic Knight), but still uses quite a few Animation shortcuts in it. (Static images, stock footage they reuse for random Knight deaths, etc)

I would love to see a Dragonball Kai Redo of this, (use the same audio track but redo the animation with modern techniques)

These are amazing, and I wish I had managed to buy them back when it was possible to easily do so (i.e. in the late '90s). On the other hand, let us never mention the TV series. Ever.

Not quite related, but also fun: Those Who Hunt Elves.

ZOMG. GTO is awesome. Great Teacher Onizuka, for those of you that might not know. It was one of the series, (along with Gokusen) that kicked off the whole genre of TV and anime series about the whole misfit teacher who ends up saving the school, and turning a group of crappy gangster-ish kids into respectable students! GTO was great, but I have to admit, I liked Gokusen a liiiiiiiittttttle better. Pandora hearts was also good, but needed more.

Two more for the list:

Cromartie High School and Gakuen Alice. Gakuen Alice kind of reminded me CCS. It was very cute and fun, but had this weird way of wishing you could make it oh so much darker due to the subject matter.

Thanks for reminding me of those. :)

It's truly brilliant. It's from 1997, but if you can find the remasters and don't mind the older art style, it looks gorgeous. There's some repetition that happens before all of the fights, but other than that there's not a whole lot else I can say bad about the show.

I bought it myself a couple weeks after I finished it, which is pretty much the highest form of endorsement I can give a show.

I don't know if you'd like it (might not be your thing), but I think you should at least give it a shot. It's really, really good.
