Re: Death Note vs. Detective Conan

Gyro Zeppeli wrote:Monster is far superior to both. Far darker and more mysterious than either of them. It also is much more intelligent and you get a much deeper look at both the detective and the serial killer.

Though of these 2 series, Death Note is better
100% what Gyro Zeppeli said.

Re: Sonic X (Japanese version)

Anime available in North America has to be liscensed by its Japanese originator to a distribution company like ADV, Funimation, etc. They oversee the English translation, subbing (fan subs are often better), and dubbing.

Re: Shugo Chara!/Shugo Chara Doki!!

Cute does very little for me. I noted Fruits Basket in you sig list. Fruits Basket is one rare exception. Beneath the fluff and powdered sugar, it has something to say.

Re: Who loves these animes?

1.Mirmo - Way too juvenile for me. 2.Gauken Alice - See above. 3.Detective Conan - Caught some of it on Adult Swim some years back. Nothing I'd follow. 4.Flame of Recca - Rented it. Started it. Sent it back. 5.Fushigi Yugi - Only thing on your list I personally find of merit. A long time favorite of...

Re: Anime That Makes You Think

I agree. FMA operates on a number of levels as it appeals to a wide audience. It poses some real questions about spirituality, choices and consequences. Great addition to the list.

Re: Why do some people hate anime?

It is difficult to appreciate something you really don't know much about. They are likely associating it with "cartoons," juvenile anime, or really bad early dubs. They don't have to like it but it is likely that whatever taste they have in books, movies, and tv, there is a correlating anime genre t...
