Re: Japanese Anime

Been a while since I watched any anime, so my suggestions might be dated.

Cowboy Bebop is absolutely fantastic. I cannot help but watch it every time it's on tv, and I own the series. And the music is just perfect.

I liked Evangelion a lot, but I got quite annoyed with it towards the end. It's still great, but I don't think I will re-watch it any time soon.

I second Forbin's vote for anything Miyazaki: a wonderful moviemaker. I love every one of them, but Porco Rosso is my favourite.

Also, I have a fondness for Leiji Matsumoto's works: Captain Harlock, Galaxy Express 999, and above all Space Battleship Yamato. Very 70s, but powerful stuff. I understand there have been some remakes, but I never watched them.

Start with "Grave of the Fireflies", and then move on to "Now and Then, Here and There"
Yikes! Anybody who starts with Grave of the Fireflies may kill themselves in a fit of depression before they can move on!
Yeah, I had the same thought.
