{     Twelve Anime That Even Anime Haters Can't Hate Completely     }    

1. Spirited Away
2. Cowboy Bebop
3. Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
4. Daft Punk: Interstella 5555: The Story of the Secret System
5. Perfect Blue
6. Grave of the Fireflies
7. Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade
8. Princess Mononoke
9. Speed Racer: The Original Series
10. Akira
11. Blood: The Last Vampire
12. Ghost in the Shell


I can not disagree with the list as a whole, but many of the titles are by the same writer/creator, which makes me feel the list is not stable. Also , I used to be a big fan of anime, would believe some of those are expendable, also perhaps some person titles I would believe people would like should be on there, perhaps also a few more series.

Just a thought.

I hate anime, and I hate all of those on the list.

Anime characters are cute, but the shows are so badly made. Like, when they talk, they don't friggin' move! They're like statues! After like 2 minutes they change position but then stay in that position for another few minutes! It's so CRAPPY! Also, when will they ever make an anime show that doesn't involve magic and weird creatures! Why don't they make a couple of anime shows that are just about the problems of everyday teenage life!? (or something like that) Also, I find that at a certain age, anime becomes really boring to people in Canada or the U.S. (and other parts of the world) because the attachment to the show disappears. Why? Well, all the anime I've seen is always based in Japan or China (don't get me wrong, it's interesting learning about different cultures) but it gets tiring because life in Japan is different from Canada or the U.S. Like, shrines for example or the different traditions that the Japanese have, we don't do them so we really don't feel like we have an attachment with that way of life. You grow out of it because you grow out of that way of life. I used to love anime but, ever since I turned 12 or so...anime has just been a total turn off. It sucks like shit now. Oh, and is it just me or is anime getting crappier and crappier as time goes by?

People who aren't anime fans, but appreciate film will always agree that Miyazaki is the only good thing to happen to anime. While I agree that Miyazaki is a talented man, he works with feature length films, and that limits him. There is one anime series that surpasses Miyazaki in many respects, and it's called Kino's Journey.

Now, for the list. I don't think it's a very good list. Most anime viewers agree that the single best anime ever created is the Samurai X OVA, which is very reminiscent of classic Kurosawa movies. Perfect Blue was good, but director Satoshi Kon went on to do better things like Millenium Actress and Tokyo Godfathers. Speed Racer has novelty value, but it's actually very boring when you sit down and watch it. And Blood: The Last Vampire doesn't belong there at all; thankfully Blood+, a series based on the film is much better.

Hmm as said prior the list is extremely Miyazaki (Ghibli) based. I was (and still am) a major anime fan. (Age 18 F) I haven't actually heard of some of those titles, but after a quick search on the net they don't seem as great as this page makes them seem.

One makor problem I've found with anime is the American (Western) Voice actor/actress's. I'll use Inuyasha since it was mentioned as something that must die earlier, But Kagome's Voice Actress deserves to be shot >_>

Now for my flaming of Marianne, (Err I mean response) The stand still concept isn't consistent throughout all anime, or even most, I personally have had very little problem with it. The only annoying ones that I can think of being Dragon Ball and Naruto, where you're right. 5secs of fighting matched with 15 minutes of talk >_<

You say that anime is limited to magic and wierd creatures. But then say they're restricted to Japan/China? Most Anime I've seen usually focus the magic and wierd creatures to fictional worlds? I'd say you're anime vocabulary is quite limited if you haven't come across a school life or a mech based show.

No matter how much you want an American based anime, you have to acknowledge the primary audience is the Japanese populace. As for growing out of anime, you're correct but I doubt it's anime related. Do you watch the latest Disney works? Or have you grown out of them?

I guess it's just a matter of opinion. As I said I'm still and anime fan (not an anime nut) but I assume the comprised list above is slightly outdated.

Which Ghost in the Shell? There's two seasons and three movies (the second season, as well as Innocence and Solid State Society were fantastic). A few others I'd probably add to the list personally are:

1. Serial Experiments Lain.
2. Texhnolyze.
3. Haibane Renmei.

That's a pretty serious cluster since most of the same individuals worked on all three, but they're definitely my favorites as well as being the ones I recommend to people I know who dislike anime in general.

fuck anime. i hate it. my friend was obssesed with. he was 150 lbs at the age of 10. :[ [i am a anime hater btw if u havent noticed.] i really dont see the thing about anime. people say its sad. not really. my friend forced me to watch at least one anime that was suppossed to be sad. it wasnt. it was, however, very annoying and made me angry.

so to all u anime lovers out there, screw you, get a life, maybe even get some friends, and put down that remote.

to all of oyu anime haters......ANIME HATERS FTW!!!!!

Fuck all you anime haters! Who the hell are you to tell us to get friends and get a life? We have a life and friends. You aren't our bosses.

Hell, you're the ones who need to get an fuckin' life and friends instead of whining about anime and its fans. They have a eight to like and love whatever the hell they want.

You anime haters better grow the fuck or burn in hell.
