Testo beat me to the punch. Metropolis was utterly amazing. It has nothing to do with the Fritz Lang silent version--though there are plot similarities, the anime version takes those simple themes and blows them out of proportion, in a good way, like tentacles and little wide-eyed girls...

There's a channel here - all Anime.

 

I dont know what you mean by hardcore -

whether its violence or simply porn

but obviously the porn doesnt show on tv

 

I watch Cowboy Bebop Trace -

but it is on early morning -

and i havent the faintest idea why

also Samurai 7

 

and lately the Anime shows have suckered me into watching

I'm following Fullmetal Alchemist

(the idea of transmutation fascinates me)

and i feel for Alphonse and Ed Elric

and God(?) Save Our King

which is on tonight

 

and I saw a few eppys of The Count of Monte Cristo

I was telling my nephew

that they took so many liberties with the book

I told him there was no much metallic monster.....

 

They made Mercedes look like a total fool in the Anime

Altho she was a fool, she wasnt that much of a total fool

i'm not even close to being an expert on these types of films and i'm not certain the criteria used to categorize all the different types of animated films,but i really loved:akira,blood the last vampire and princess mononoke.

 

and i think vampire hunter d has some of the best action sequences of any film i've seen.

For great action sequences, I'm all about The Castle Of Cagliostro. 20-odd years old, and still one of the best pop-action films ever made, animated or otherwise.

For "Hard-core stuff" I recomend this anime TV series called Gantz. It was created by some guy who was basically pissed off that Japanese television is becoming more cencored like American TV. So he put everything offensive he could get away with into the series. (i.e. graphic violence, harsh language, nudity, as close as you can get to hentai(anime porn) without it actually being hentai.)

 

Im only partway through the first season myself but it is actually a very good story. Its about these people who, just before there death are essentially faxed into a room by this big black sphere thing called Gantz, and forced to play these games which involve killing these alien like creatures. Most of the party usually gets brutally killed each time.

 

I find it best described as an anime version of the movie SAW.

 

other than that I suggest, Neon Genisus Evangelion. Fucks with your head the first time you see it. the last two episodes are essential the main character going through an acid trip. And the ending movie proves that all life amounts to kitty :happy: . (for those who have seen the movie, its the first live action sceen after his little acid trip experience. ;) )

 

other than that most everything else mentioned is good stuff.

Actually, as far as anime goes, does anybody know if an uncut version of Battle Of The Planets/Ninja Team Gatchaman has ever been translated into English? Every English version of it seems to be based on the original Sandy Frank translation and so dumps most of the violence, all of the bodycount and Zoltar being a hermaphrodite...

An old friend once recommended Demon City. Is this any good?

If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's good. Even if it isn't, it still may be.
