Is the BBC one Gran Mal or something? Never really looked at that.


Yes, it was called Grand Mall.

I'd say about the same, storywise.

Between BGC, BGCr and BGCT2040, which one was the best?

For me, that is more or less the order.

First BGC was the best... cause that's the only one that kept my interest.

BGC was definately the best,
followed by Ad Police Files,
followed by the AD Police manga,
followed by Metal Skin Panic MADOX-01 (which for some reason is never listed as a prequel, even though the madox suit has been directly referenced),
followed by grand mal,
followed by Parasite Dolls,
followed by Bbblegum Crash,
followed by AD Police the series,
Followed by BGC2040, the worst of the bunch.......

BGC and its related spinoffs were my first favorite anime, and remained there for a long time...

Its still in my top 5, after Appleseed, GITS: SAC, Cowboy Bebop,

probably Spriggan

But it's only one film...... so I am re-evaluating it's position

Samurai Champloo may end up taking it's spot.


I am really fond of Black Lagoon

Coyote Ragtime was really good too.

Macross/Robotech was what started me out, but its become really hit or miss.

Liked Champloo a lot. Spriggan had some good action but I never thought it was super solid as a story.

Do want to see Black Lagoon but haven't yet and heard mixed things about Coyote Ragtime Show.

Which of the Macross series did you see? All of them?

I tried to watch 7. Wanted to see the links between that and the original. It wasn't anything significant into too much into it (I didn't watch too far into it) I admit to a weird liking of some of the music.

Macross 0 was good (only saw the first few but have it).

Macross f was also good (watched half so far).

Macross Plus is one of my favorites.

Other than DYRL, Macross plus is my definate favorite, followed by Zero. Havent seen F. Would have liked more Flashback, but alas, 2 music videos is all we got.

Metal Skin Panic is not related to BGC. That was an in joke because it was Artmic doing the designs, that's all.

GITS is great as in Cowboy Bebop, but even the more recent Appleseed anime was disappointing compared to the manga. IMO.

Dude, when Shinji Aramaki (director of both) says they are related, they are.

Yeah, the appleseed sequal was just kinda..meh It was pretty but the story was lame and kinda derived, especially the crappy matrix ending.

Was really hoping the TV series would be awesome, but that just fell through completely..... sigh

Spriggan, I only read that original manga adpation that viz but out waaaaay back. Liked it, but have yet to watch the movie.

Champloo... zero interest in it.

Black Lagoon, I watched the first handful of episodes and liked it. With a thrid season coming, I need to catch up at some point.

Coyote Ragtime, watched a little more then half of it. Kind of a Cowboy Bebop vibe to it, but not as good, yet still a good show.

Macross rocks, Roboblech sucks.

The original show was good, DYRL was better in some ways, Macross Plus and Macross Zero tie for the best, Macross F comes in next and Macross 7.... poor compared to the others. Mind you, I understand that the story picks up later on.
Ehhh, it was made for the Music fans while Plus was made for the sci-fi mecha fans.

Really? News to me or I forgot. Oh well.

At least it was better animated. That's all there.

GitS? The tv show, like the movies, were reinterpretations. Not bad, but nothing will beat the manga.

I'd still love to see a Megaroad series breaking out from Flashback.

I'm not holding my breath. We'll see something like 20 Gundam series before Tatsunoko wises up on that.
