    It was a show on the kids Channel Pop! I'm not 100% sure if it was an anime but it was about 3 children who had this book with different diamond shaped slots in it and would have to find the diamonds to fit in the book. There was also some sort of rip off team Rocket as well I think. Reply

    I remember it was some sort fight scene. The protagonists (there were two, I believe) were fighting some sort of monster. I somewhat remember them being witches, magical girls or some sort of magically powered girls. I also remember a fourth, smaller "sidekick" type character. It was very dark, likely night time, and I remember it taking place in some sort of wasteland, or perhaps a forest. I do remember there being a large hole that a character was hiding in. I forget completely what the monster looked like, except for one detail; it having an appendage with a stinger on the end of it, I remember it looking sort of like Imperfect Cell's. However, the most memorable part, as well as why the clip was uploaded, was that when stung by the monster, the part of the protagonists body it hit would inflate/expand, I'm certain it hit one of them in the breasts, and I believe the other was stung in the butt. I know this makes me sound like a huge pervert, but it's been bothering me for a while. Reply

    In the early 1990s, I caught most of an animé movie on TV. It involved what were either aliens or robots, possibly made of stone (they were large and definitely grey or beige) that looked sort of like the ones in Laputa: Castle in the Sky but it definitely wasn’t that film. At some point in the film, these creatures (?) talk to the protagonist about time being circular, or at least not linear, and the way they talked in the dubbed version of the film that I saw had them using sentences with verbs of multiple tenses stuck together, sort of like “we were-will be x.” I think the film was made in the late 1970s or in the 1980s.

    Does this ring any bells with anyone? I have had no luck tracing this online. Reply

      Is there anything useful to you on the Time-Travel Tense Trouble page?

      Gandahar (known as Light Years in English)

      You No Take Candle: The mutants said everything in both the past and future tenses (example: "was will be" instead of "is"). The trope is played with because the mutants are trying to tell the main character that he's going to be doing some time traveling. In the English version, they are also terrified of the present, so they fall back on the prophecy and find solace in the past-future.

      @Paul A — Sorry, I didn't find anything useful there. @Erica B — Sorry, it's not Gandahar, and I couldn't find anything on the You No Take Candle page, either. The movie was definitely Japanese in style, unlike Gandahar. Also, the aliens/creatures whatever in the movie didn't give me the impression of being confused or unable to think like a human; they were trying to explain how they perceived things to the protagonist (who I don't remember anything about at all) and the mixed tenses seemed more natural to them.

    Okay, so this is gonna be super vague and I just now am remembering it after who knows how long, but assuming this wasn't a dream, forever ago I feel like I saw what was either a short, no-dialogue animation, or potentially music video, about a girl with wings (I think they were white angel wings) who at first seemed like she was being held captive by the military, but either they were just keeping her safe from something, or one of the soldiers helped her escape. I think I remember a futuristic city that was almost in a gigantic pit, with trains on bridges going across either side of the pit, that appears at the end with her flying there/enjoying her freedom. There may have also been scenes with the girl being taught to fly. I want to say it was anime-esque, but I'm not totally sure. It may have also been a movie trailer. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Reply

      On Your Mark?

      ^ Seconded. It's an "animated music video created by Studio Ghibli for the song 'On Your Mark' by the Japanese rock duo Chage & Aska."

      Yep, that's definitely it. I'm a big fan of Ghibli, so I have no idea how this one went under my radar. Thanks so much!

      I think that snap is from Rosario Vampire

      When I reverse-google searched the image, I found that gif linked on a fanpage to Riruka Dokugamine from Bleach where literally all of the other images were of that character! And considering that the signature on the GIF in the corner credits it to a blog called "teambleach," I'm willing to bet that that's the answer.

      Searching her name and "heart" brings up some similar-looking stuff, so yeah, I guess so! Thanks

    It was some sort of childrens cartoon/anime, with a character design reminiscent of Dinosaur King. The main kid, a boy, had some sort of monster/creature like a pokemon or something. I remember in one episode, the creature ran in circles around a city to create a glass dome with layers of glass and something else to make a dome to protect it from a sandstorm or something. I am also pretty sure this show doesn't occur on Earth, but another univese/world, but I could be wrong Reply

    So i have Been Looking for this tv Cartoon series for a couple of hours and really Can not find it. So its about these 3 friends, 2 guys and 1 Girl the guy is somewhat "the chosen one" I think, and they protect the world from these evil people who can turn into monsters. And so can the 3 friends. And every time they like do a mission where they have to protect a ball of monster safe from the bad guys, and then they take it and they get more monsters they can turn in to. And they have like all these monsters on 1 card or Something like that.

    Sorry if this is just really weirdly described, but I tried my best, if you have any ideas please let me know or ask questions. It was on like Cartoon Network, nickelodeon, Disney xd. im not sure it was on one of them it was not so long ago, couple of years ago I saw it last. Reply

      They unlock new monsters everytime they conplete a mission. Then its like the "Ball" they are supposed to protest gives them each a new monster.

      Redakai?

    I remember renting a movie at Redbox sometime in the early 2010's. The movie itself probably came out anywhere from 2009 to 2013, maybe. I remember it was about a boy... and dragons, or something. The one scene I remember is from the very beginning. It was set in 1500s-1800s Japan, and a bunch of men were gathered outside a village and started firing arrows at a dragon that came toward them. One of them said, "those bastards keep coming our way!", or something. I know that's a little vague, but any help is appreciated. Reply

      I'm thinking Princess Mononoke.

      No, unfortunately I know that's not it. I remember looking it up and seeing it got mediocre reviews.

      Edit: I found it. It's called "Legend of the Millenium Dragon".

    It includes a boy who catches the hat of a girl, and the first episode revolve around stone stairs in the outside. The girl is I think from a family of folks with superpowers, with a fat and unruly cat . It has an excellent opening song as well .

    Thanks to those who would help me to recover this show ! Reply

      Look up "anime from the 80s" I found a lot listed

      Finally found it myself, it's called "Kimagure Orange Road" : excellent anime !

And the main monster was red. I can't remember the teens name and I think the title had the words Kaiju or something in it. Reply

    Not 100% sure it's anime but here it goes. I remember watching a cassete between 1997-2000 and I remember a bunch of scenes, in one of them there's a blonde girl, a room filled with portraits and then the room fills itself with blood and i think the portraits change into something creepy like corpses or sekeletons, there's also a scene where a guy(s) is(are) standing on horses looking up at an old mansion where i think the girl was, the movie or sereies is depicted in the 18/19 century i think... But these memories are very old, I was like 3-6 years old so... Any help is welcomed I've had this movie stuck in my meories for more then 15 years... Reply

    I remember seeing it when I was little and there was this kid and a girl and maybe some others that collected stone tablets with monsters inside and the girl was trying to find her father and he was connected to a wolf in one of those tablets or maybe he was the wolf. The problem is that I remember only seeing two or three episodes and the father ending up as the wolf was a bit surreal so maybe I just dreamed of it but I've always wondered if maybe it really existed and if I could see the ending. And I'm pretty sure the kid lived in the normal world and went in the fantasy one whenever he wanted. I probably imagined it but it looked really real and I was always convinced that I had really seen it. And I've had other dreams that looked like cartoons and I remebered they were dreams so I'm pretty sure this is real Reply

      Well we don't know when you were little but it sounds like a Mons Series like Magi-Nation, Kaijudo or Huntik. You might want to have a look over the list.

      Sounds like MonsterRancher, I didn't watch it enough to remember anything about the girl's father, but everything else in your description matches up.

      Most of the things remind me of the Monster Rancher anime, with a few errors here and there (the wolf was a team member, the girl's father was not the wolf but the Big Bad, the kid was Trapped in TV Land inside the Monster Rancher PS 1 game in the first episode and never came back)

      Yes I remembered it looking a little bit different but I think that it was that and since I didn't see it in a long time I misremembered something but it matches up. I think watched it around the time that I watched hunterXhunter but I don't think it was the first time it was airing so it wouldn't help much. I'm glad you know huntik it's one of my favourites :) Thanks to everyone!

    Anime time, people. I remember an OAV from the mid-'90s that had a strange title, Two Words, starting with A, not Japanese or English; it was like a made-up word. I don't remember its signifigance to the plot. The plot did have a blind woman trying to help solve a case involving a serial murderer. She had extrasensory abilities. Of course, she wound up becoming a target and the climax of the film had her dangling from the ledge of a building, with the main male hero trying to hold her up. This was also the anime's cover art. Reply

      Bump! I can't seem to find this anywhere. I'm sad that I can't think of any other details about it, like voice actors, the distributor, anything.

      Are you sure it's not one of the Detective Conan movies?

      Bumping because I'm curious.

    I liked one cartoon from my childhood that included a bunch of animals: a lion, who was a king, a bear, a wolf, a white female rabbit, and a penguin. They had to rescue other animals and it was basically a competition. The winner was celebrated at the end of each episode. I remember the penguin defusing a bomb. I think it might have been an anime but I'm not sure. Does anyone remember something like that? Reply

    I remember this anime where there were these two guys, one smart and one strong, who were not at all friends. Then at night something from their computers started to glow, with a female voice talking to them, making them heroes. The smart one was blue and the strong one was red. They fused and became a superhero, then stopped a villain. I only manage to remember watching it on dubbed channel with lots of other animes as well. Reply

    I don't remember if it was an anime or not, but I distinctly remember watching it as a kid. The two main characters were girls and had magical powers. They fought monsters. They transformed like sailor moon and one had a white outfit and one had a black and pink outfit. I remember they said some cheesy line about "get back to the abyss from where you came" or something like that. I think it aired on YTV in the early 2000's Reply

    I remember one of my absolute favourite cartoons as a child (in the 90s) was about this boy and this creature. The creature was shaped like a human but it had a large, puffy face and it carried a striped umbrella which he could spin, and I think it allowed him to fly. The creature had entered the boy's/our world through his closet. I watched it in Arabic and it was called "Sumbul" (how I pronounced it anyway). I have tried to find it with no luck.

    I've been trying to find a lot of old anime that i used to watch but one that I cant put my finger on is this one that I think is either early 2000's or late 90's. I remember this one scene from it that creeped me out (I think it made me stop watching it but now I'm really interested). There was this guy crying because his wife died and then this creepy monster thing showed up. The monster asked the guy if he wanted his wife back. The guy said yes so the monster brought her back as this robot thing that then proceeded to kill the guy and crawl into his body. The whole scene happened in a foggy place, and the monster had a huge smile. I'm fairly certain it was dubbed but I cant remember the names. Reply

    There's this anime where the characters use familiars made out of the elements to fight each other.

    I don't remember much about it but the main guy could summon a fire fox and one of side protagonists had an ice wolf.

    Also, I think the witch from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles was in it too but not sure. Reply

      Did you watch it dubbed in the early 2000s, or subbed online? Also, if you think that Yuuko was in it, you could check a list of CLAMP's other works, but the premise you've shared doesn't sound familiar. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Clamp_works

      Super huge guess here, but could it be Shaman King?

    I remember reading it so long ago, the protagonist was a freckled(?) short dark blonde haired glasses wearing girl who didn't understand the big deal of relationships and the like, or wanted one really badly. it involved cell phones, dealing with rumors and her meeting a girl with a bad reputation, she had long black hair and isolated because it was rumored she had sex with guys. last time i read i was near the part where the protag starts to realize something is off with her feelings towards the other girl. I think it may have had something to do with strawberries in the title? Either way it was maybe about ten chapters and unfinished, but it seemed to have been created Very Long Ago.

    Things I remember about it, very old art style, like Yu Yu Hakusho, with all the little things about 90s manga. The protag had these really iconic dad glasses! like these : (http://d111vui60acwyt.cloudfront.net/product_photos/44937467/silver_20Oculos-Vintage-Eyewear-Frame-Myopia-Glasses-Clear-Lens-Women-Spectacle-Frame-Men-Eyeglasses-Optical-Glasses-Frame_20imatterial_large.jpg) The other character looked at lot like hell girl but with dark eyes. Their school outfits were a plain short sleeved button up blouse with plaid skirts. It was under the Yuri tag.
