I've gone nerd mode: Getting into anime/marvel/dc animated movies
Got bored one night, couldn't find anything I wanted to watch online, for some reason I picked Justice League: Doom (2012 version). I really enjoyed it and it intrigued me to get further into animated series/movies.

I then watched Batman: Under The Red Hood, a more dark mature DC movie, and it was phucking awesome.

From there I looked for suggestions on more stuff. Got turned onto a few anime series and am watching Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion.

Pretty phucking good so far. I'm 9 eps in and liking it.

I'm gonna have to check out that batman flic

Snowmayne 03-21-2012 05:15 PM for your streaming needs.

That shit is fuckig awesome.

Have you seen samurai champloo?

That might be my all time fav

It was inspiring

Also cowboy bebop

Afro samurai


And full metal alchemist: brotherhood (this one isn't for everyone, more of a kids thing but I like the philosophy and ethical bullshit that comes up)

Really it's the ethical philosophical aesthetic stuff that I feel like anime holds over all other genres.

Also the movie spirited away was pretty epic

Snowmayne 03-21-2012 05:31 PM

yea man I've seen all the normal American stuff at one time or another.

use to watch cowboy bebop, inuyasha and full metal alchemist all the time on Adult Swim when it was good.

Seen Afro Samurai as well.

You should check out this Code Geass, its really good and only keeps getting better with each episode. Amazing story line. I'm addicted.

Nice, Justice League pwns. I watched the cartoon when I was a kid.

You should download some Batman the Animated Series. That shit is TIGHT.

Watch Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion online (TV Show) - on 1Channel | LetMeWatchThis

For anyone who is interested

Jester4yall 03-21-2012 06:15 PM

cowboy bebop was awesome, I haven't seen any of them in awhile tho

Snowmayne 03-22-2012 06:18 PM

21 Episodes into Code Geass, 5 more to go in this season. 25 eps for S2 and its over.

Might give Full Metal Alchemist a go next or something else thats been recommended to me.

Geass is awesome though.

samurai champloo is fuckin sick.

Snowmayne 03-24-2012 05:07 AM

ok someone needs to nerd out with me so I have someone to talk to about my new found obsession, anime.

as usual, I get a lot of information from the misc so heres a really good thread with great links, info on shows, recommendations and all that.

Bokura wa anime fans, the *Official* Anime Discussion Thread - PART 2 - Forums

Code Geass season 1 was absolutely amazing. Mind blowing an anime could draw me in the way season 1 or as they call it in anime r1 did.

Starting r2 today, 25 archs to go.

also, this site is amazing for streaming.

Dang no flash on iphone

Snowmayne 03-26-2012 05:48 AM

finished all 50 episodes, pretty brilliant show. the first season and a large part of the second season are on par with some of the best shows I've ever seen as far as the story and writing goes.

trying to decide what to watch next. FMA: Brotherhood, Cowboy Bebop, Death Note, Samurai Champloo and Darker than Black are my current choices.

The thing that I find great about getting into Anime is it's opening up so many new shows for me to watch, and theres tons of different genres of Anime.

Totally nerding it up.

fenderbender 03-26-2012 06:50 AM

cowboy bebop, trigun, samurai champloo, full metal alchemist

LOVE that these shows are getting talked about. 4 of my favorite shows.

love that terry said batman TAS too. Legit as fuck show.

next one on my list is Claymore. also Outlaw Star.

i highly recommend Golden Boy, for a super funny great anime. its all on youtube.

id recommend bebop or trigun for the next show mayne

Snowmayne 03-26-2012 07:03 AM

I think I'm going FMA Brotherhood.

btw heres a great site to stream anime

Watch Anime Online | English Dubbed / Subbed Episodes

fenderbender 03-26-2012 08:35 AM

FMA is a fucking great show. absolutely love it.
brotherhood is a little darker than the other series i believe. might be a little "young" or w/e depending on what youre lookin for. Then again you said you liked inuyasha lol so youll probably like it.

Geeno 03-26-2012 06:50 PM

I can't wait for Netflix to post the 4th chapter of gmail brotherhood

Such intense ethical phIlosophy

Sir-Ex 03-26-2012 10:19 PM

This thread convinced me to download the Ranma 1/2 series.

I'm gonna have to check some of these other ones out too.. I'm thinking a drunken anime night is in order. (lol and not an alone drunken anime night either, although such a thing shouldn't be some cases)

Totally recommend Ranma for anyone who likes more slapsticky comedy animes.

Snowmayne 03-27-2012 04:16 AM

you guys that have been into past anime, are you hardcore enough to watch it Japanese the way its meant to be watched, or do you watch English dubs?

I did Code Geass in dubs. Might try my next anime with subs this time, i dunno.

fenderbender 03-27-2012 05:20 AM

all the animes mentioned in this thread have godly english dubs, so i prefer them.

jap audio is hit or miss for me.

also i tried like three times last night but my page kept getting fucked up

do yourself a favor and watch Ghost in the Shell.
i recommend the show first, then the movies... but at the very least watch the first movie
