    Definetly. Rurouni Kenshin is great. Also as others have said. Samurai Champloo is excellent. You already said you liked Cowboy Bebop (which I also am a fan of). Samurai Champloo is created by the same people so if you liked that style you should check it out. I really enjoyed it. Most of the shows other people have named are really good shows to check out.

    I would recommend "Hajime No Ippo", or as it is called in America, "Fighting Spirit." It is a boxing anime centered around the journey of a timid High School student, Ippo Makunouchi, who enrolls in a boxing gym after a boxer saves him from some bullies.

    The DVD releases are over halfway done(they are on episode 55 of 70 something). However, the dub isn't all that great and the subs get some of the termonolgy and references wrong. At one point they mention Sugar Ray Leonard, but the subs say Raynard and there is another point where some of the boxers are demonstating a boxing technique and the subs incorrectly lable it.

    This is probably my favorite manga right now. Even though it is over 70 volumes long and still going it has GREAT pacing. The only downside to the anime is it stops RIGHT before the best fight of the series takes place. But unfortunatly it was up against Final Fantasy Unlimited at the time and couldn't compete.

    Maybe you guys have seen it. Anime comes out pretty late where I'm from: Gun X Sword. The character designs are excellent but the storyline is abit of an acquired taste

    Aquired taste? I heard Van was a cheap imitation of Vash the Stampede.

    Visually he looks more like a lankier version of Spike Spigel. Not sure whether he can be compared to Vash in terms of visuals or characteristics. I wish I knew how to post images, that way you'd know what I'm talking about. He's more like Spike because he seems pretty laid-back but not as happy. Also he has this vengeance thing going. I watched it only for Carmen 99 anyways

    Spike.

    Not the similarities in hairstyles (well, Van never takes off his hat so that's pretty hard to notice) and eye colour (red)

    And here's the lovely Miss Carul or as she prefers to be called, Carmen 99 for her...ahem...size of her assets and the number of tools she keeps hidden. I apologize for the lack of good pictures. Gun X Sword doesn't seem well circulated around the Net as of yet. This is the 215mm figurine I intend to get once it hits the streets. Its about 45-50 USD. Worth it?

    It's just another mecha anime. Basically, they compete in a tournament of some sort with their mechanized vehicles. It's mediocre, in my opinion.

    Seems like a cool enough concept (though I'm sure done before) but I think it just needs better writers.:o


    I am basing my judgement off of one and half episodes,though.:(

    Latest I've seen is this show I dled from the net called....Uta....urm....Utawarerumon(?). Typical fantasy styled Harem affair with fluffy tailed girls, elven girls, winged girls, assortment of other girls I've yet to see but probably exist. I'm told it was based on a Strategic RPG with some H elements. The series is that, I suppose, sans the H like Tsukihme and Fate/Stay Night though I'm a fan of neither
