Pick an Anime for Barkey:

Has Starship Operators been mentioned yet? It's fairly hard sci-fi, no cutesy stuff, no demons or magical powers. A tv network sponsors a war (as a reality show) and... it's interesting.

I didnt know if he was a space opera fan, but since you brought it up I might aw well mention Toward the Terra, Heroic Age and Legend of Galactic Heroes

EDIT:

Saw a snippet of one (forget the name) where a JDF Aegis Destroyer goes back in time to WWII and have to make some hard decisions about who to help in the war, or just to try to stay out of the whole thing. Introduction clip had me riveted.

Zipang is that series.

Irresponsible Captain Tylor - Hilarious space opera

might as well mention Martian Successor Nadesico

Star Blazers is fun, but my memories of it are faint, same with Robotech.

Star Blazers is GAY, watch original Space Battleship Yamato as its not bastardized by america.

I'd recommend Macross over Robotech as well :p

Thanks

and for those who recommended Drrrrrr (Durarara) i'd say get Tokyo Tribe 2 . It hasYakuza, Street Gangs, and a melding on US hip-hop culture and old japanese gangs as well as Chinese mafia.

I really like fma, saw the original anime and the movie, still need to take the time to watch brotherhood. I think ill still like it, I don't really read manga, I have 40k novels for my reading fix.

Brotherhood is different enough from the first anime that it will feel fresh yet still the same story. Its good.

I don't read manga either, odd considering how much I love books. Unrelated, but read Watchmen. Do not watch the movie.

How the fuck did I forget Death Note?

Watch Death Note.

Seriously.

Watch.

It.

Samurai Deeper Kyo is good as long as you stick to the comic. Too many people get forgiven for being dickweeds, but aside from that...

So I'm halfway through FLAG, I like it enough to finish it, but some things are kind of bugging me.

No government anywhere would ever just give the disk containing all the specs of a classified weapon detailing all of its internals and the production involved. No way in hell would they do that.

And the pilots need to quit being so damn sulky.
The AR-15 is responsible for 95% of all deaths each year. The rest of the deaths are from obesity and drone strikes.

I see the Awesomeness.
Isn't by the same group who did Gasaraki? Their characters always seem kinda whiney.

Not to mention the hair, god damn the hair.

And the commanding officer saluted the photographer when they first met, that really irked me.

Yeah animes are terrible when it comes to getting military stuff right. Granted I don't claim to know how to do it right myself, but I do know they get it wrong, and how.

Have I visited this thread yet?

Whatever. I recommend Angel Cop. Make sure you get the dub.

The subs of it are good as well just because it becomes Hilarious in Hindsight that they licensed that series at all, considering what it's about.

Barkey doesn't like Moe?

Well I'm shocked.

Well more shocked since I haven't seen him on the left side and figured he'd gotten fed up with this place and left.

In terms of suggestions: hahaha no I have none.

Sailor moon... Hmmm I assume it's about nautical adventures by night? an animated nocturnal Moby Dick perhaps?

Nah, I just stay here in OTC and Films since there's no IJBM anymore and Yack Fest sucks.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes is a fantastic Space Opera, RahXephon is great too, but probably not up you alley. La Maison en Petit Cubes, is a beautiful short.

Pronounced YAK-you-luss
Yeah, it'd certainly be interesting to see what you make of Galactic Heroes, Barkey. Hope you don't mind a long series with dated animation, though.

@Barkey: I figured as much, and realized I had some dyslexia on direction. And now I'll read through this to see if any seem interesting to me because I suspect we have somewhat similar tastes.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
