you really really need to see it........
Champloo... zero interest in it.
Out of curiosity, why not, not big into fuedal japan type stuff?
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.
I still need to get the second season, the end of the first, with Remy and the assisn chick blowing up half the city trying to kill each other in an roaming gunfight was too cool for words...
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.
If it weren't for robotech, you never, ever wold have seen macross, or really any anime for that matter. The popularity of Robotech is what paved the way for pretty much the entire manga/anime import industry by creating a fan base wanting more.
And regardless of what ever else, Macek was fucking brilliant, he took three completely unrelated series, and melded them together to become something epic on a scale never before seen on american tv. Its just a shame that every project he has done since has kinda stalled. Robotech Shadowchronicles was actually pretty fucking badass.
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.
Honestly, I love it for the military aspect of it. That the planes transform into giant robots is my least favorite part of the entire thing. Would prefer them to just remain planes.
But yeah, Plus beats Zero just because Zero wasted waaaaaay to much time on the hokey hippy magic crap.
