    Japanese culture is fantastic, but anime is a whiff.

    Well for you, specially, Mac, I recommend FLCL. It'll confirm everything you think about in anime, in style. Poison to heal poison.

    If you want to think all anime is whiff then I really have no way to convince you otherwise; I have my opinions on anime as do yours.

    Also, Japanese culture is indeed fantastic.

    FLCL makes no sense. That's its appeal. Also, it's only six episodes long, so there's not much wasted if you don't like it.

    Fruit Lion Claps Loudly

    Watching the above clip of anime I feel like I've already seen it a thousand times, despite having never seen it before.

    If you think you hate anime, try watching Excel Saga first (ALL 26 EPISODES!). Then come back and hate anime rightfully so.

    It took me the better part of a year to finish watching it, because I was so exhausted by it after every 2 or 3 episodes, I shelved it for quite some time before watching it again. But I had to finish watching it, because, well, you just don't really know what's going to happen in that series.

    Except that whatever is going to happen is ten kinds of crazy with mental on top.

    I always thought it was a very monotonous design. I remembered Speed Racer when I was really young, and watched mostly American stuff afterwards. In the late 70's and 80's, anime became popular among the kids, and I just was never into it. The stuff like Speed Racer was very limited in animation (and this is even spoofed on Dexter), while the more serious action-adventure wasn't cartooney at all (and this is what has greatly shaped modern stuff, like the WB produced new JLA stuff. Hard to digest growing up on Hanna Barber's "Superfriends").

    It looked like it was all drawn by the same person, and enter the internet age, I find out that it basically did have a common designer. Manga creator Osamu Tezuka.

    I did like the opening and closing music of Battle of the Planets and Star Blazers. Brings me back to a more carefree time. That was in a time when new cartoons were only one network Sat. morning, and weren't being syndicated (He-Man and GI Joe are what kicked that back off a few years later), so they looked like new shows on the independent station on weekdays, and I didn't realize they were just newly dubbed shows that were a few years old already.

    I suddenly have the urge to wander into threads and ramble on about Sailor Moon.

    I thought FLCL was awesome. Really more of a movie than a series, though.
