If not, then Ghost In The Shell. Anime isn't something I'm heavily into, but I have enjoyed GITC: SAC series 1 & 2 (also got GITC 2 and GITC SSS but have still to watch them after nearly a year). I've also seen Elfen Lied which I thought was great, and then I've got Witchblade, which isn't fabulous, but I'm enjoying. Its taking me a looong time to get through though.
And er, Battle Vixens. I'd like to say I'm embarrassed by that, but I'm not. Its a fun little show. I'm puzzled why its an 18 certificate though. Its not terribly violent and there's not much in the way of nudity/ sex.
I've also got Black Lagoon series 2 (i think thats what its called), but I've only watched the first episode, so I have no idea if its any good.
Laputa: Castle in the Sky. Still a fantastic film, and I think I owe a fair degree of my career and interest in the natural world to it, coupled with my love of machines and Japanese anime and manga.
I had no idea what it was called, and I never saw it for years after the tape broke, but my dad found it on DVD a few years ago and actually remembered it and bought it as a surprise for me! One of my most watched discs now!
Interestingly, the majority of people my sort of age working in my line seem to have seen Laputa about the same time, and it love it - I wonder if it has influenced a whole generation of ecologists / wildlife conservationists?
Looking for Masterpiece 13B Ratbat (will pay reasonably silly money), HFTD Voyager The Fallen (teal version with rip-off face), Generations Deluxe Perceptor. Having a big clear out so loads of Transformers up for sale or trade from G1 to Classics to the live action Movie lines, including ROTF Leader Optimus Prime! Check out my sale thread for more and feel free to PM me to negotiate costs or trades.
Robotech. I didn't even know what anime was. Just that the people looked funny and their mouths moved after they were finished talking.
Roy Fokker died. I was just a kid at the time and it blew me away that an established hero character could die (it never happened on any other cartoon!), and there were touching affects on all the other characters. It left an impression I've never forgotten, that's for sure.
