Ya..... I got that sense from seeing the op on youtube. Well I'll give my 2 cents in a couple of days or so. UPDATE Just finished Diebuster, here's some thoughts Gunbuster: 9/10 Diebuster/Gunbuster 2: 8.8/10 (Eps 1-3: Okay, but fun, Eps 4-6, blew me away!) Gurren Lagann: 5/10 If you...

I can't find this manga anywhere. Anyways did the Gunbuster manga finish or is it still ongoing. If it's finished then can someone tell me how many volumes it is? If it's not finished then does the manga correlate to the story of the OVA? THANKS :D

Keep in mind that this other definition is far from what you propose though, if we're to use the Japanese definition because they have dibs on it (as you insist we should) then everything animated is anime, from Mickey Mouse to Evangelion. The fact is that we are not Japanese (most ...

All the users of a word determine its meaning in their various places; this is how the same word can come to have a different meaning in those different places. In any case, why on earth does it matter to you so much that you want to convince people that a word has a different meaning to that which...

No, you're not. You're completely wrong -- for the Japanese "Anime" refers to any animated work, and for everyone else it refers to Japanese animation made for a Japanese audience. That's it. That's how the term is used in Japan and abroad. Your attempt to limit it to a pa...

Anime is not a Japanese cartoon

Anime is not a Japanese cartoon. There are a number of reasons for this. 1. The definition of anime being a Japanese cartoon is something Americans attached to the term in the mid 70's when it started reaching towards a wider audience. The Japanese term (which is the correct term given that ...

Question about Eva 2.0

I am confused about the setting of the rebuild movies. I originally thought that it took place after third impact thus explaining why all the oceans are red but after thoroughly examining 2.0 I saw that all the oceans were not red. This is a screenshot from Eva 2.0 right before the appearance of the...

In fact, I think it's kind of a silly to make GunBuster into a live action work when the whole point of the anime...was to be a tribute to anime. It would be like if you wanted to make a film celebrating the work of Spike Lee, but had every actor in Yellow face. It would make no sense. Well Gun...

Oh, and Christopher Lee as Smith.


please tell me your joking. THE MAN IS 90 YEARS OLD! I can see Samuel Jackson as the Captain and MAYBE Nicolas as Coach but come on a 90 year old man you're obviously joking!

Questions about Eva.

1. I am not sure if any one noticed this in Evangelion 2.0 but when Mari shows Shinji the battle field it highly resembles the ending of episode 26 where Shinji is siting in a chair in the middle of a foggy forest. 2. Why does Shinji appear to be afraid of himself throughout the entire series. 3. Is...
