    The only Anime I can think of reccomending right now that no-one has probably mentioned already is Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040. The name doesn't make a lick of sense, but basically all you need to know is that it's in the future and there are semi-organic robots called "Boomers" which are meant to fill the jobs that no-one wants, and occasionally they turn evil and ugly, so these hot chicks in cool mechanical armor show up to beat the crap out of them. If that doesn't pique your interst, then the show probably isn't for you. ^_^

    Unfortunately, I didn't get to see the entire show (I never got around to the last volume or two). My brother had the entire series on DVD but he ended up selling it. He apparently had mixed feelings towards the ending, but his overall opinion of the show was fairly high, and I liked the first few volumes I watched quite a bit.

    For the OVA, Geneon went with what they felt was right. For the series, they decided to take the opinion of the creator of R.O.D. He said he always pictured that Yomiko would have a brits' accent. So they went with that. And besides, the Voice Actors from the OVA were no longer availible because of some union labor mumbo jumbo that kicked in a year or 2 later.

    Gungrave! I can't believe I forgot that too. Full Metal Panic is good too. Azumanga Daioh is sometimes really funny and other times just plain retarted, just like Excel Saga. Bleach is cool I guess. I haven't seen enough of it to properly formulate an opinion.

    The Read or Die OVA was good, I liked it quite a bit. It has fluid animation, some inventive action sequences and an enjoyable plot. :up:

    The thing duzn't play the whole concert all the way through for some reason. But the rest of it is there you just have to poke around a bit. Not the most spectacular concert I've seen but it's still good :D

    Sweet! Thanks. :D

    As for recommendations, you've already seen some good series'. If you liked Street Fighter V, you might want to check out Street Fighter 2: The Animated Movie. It's the best anime based on a fighting game, IMO. Although, the Fatal Fury Motion Picture was pretty damn enjoyable as well.

    Blood: The Last Vampire is a great little film with a really high production value, and some of the greatest atmospheric lighting I've ever seen in an anime.

    Teropterids are evil beasts which pose as humans and live only to drink human blood. Fortunately for the human world there are groups dedicated to destroying them. A brooding and mysterious girl named Saya is the best teropterid slayer there is, and now, in 1960's Japan, she is sent to a U. S. army base which may be infested...

    Ever heard of one called Betterman? I got the first 5 eps and thought it was decent. I don't quite know how to explain it though :confused: :)

    *#!!"@*****!!!!^%[email protected]! The hotmail ain't workin so I can't get to my image hosting for the Betterman pick I found. Well here's the link to it.

    http://www.animegalleries.net/img/160851

    The guy in the back is Betterman and the girl is Hinoki.

    hmmmm.....................somewhat mech, somewhat magic, set in the future. A guy can change into a dragon kinda thing but no one knows who he is so they call him Betterman.

    A schoolboy ,Keita, who is lame, and has no life, reunites with an old freind. The freind is a girl with pink, green, and brown hair. She works with people who invetigate weird stuff and drives a nueronoid (sp?) thingy. It takes two pilots to operate so the schoolboy has to help her.

    Some weird stuff happens and they think something called Algernon has somn to do with it.

    It's more understandable when you see it. It's weird tryin to explian it.

    Hmm, name a series that's comparable. Is it Manic and crazy like FLCL, EoE or Dead Leaves? Or is it creepy and sombre like Boogie Pop Phantom or Lain?
