    I might be dredging this one up and necroposting, but hey, this thread is still on the front page...

    So, I saw an anime ani-gif and the source was mentioned and figured I'd check it out. There are (only) twelve episodes (so far), I meant to sample the first few, then report back here. I wound up watching all 12 eps in one go just now. A-friggin-mazing.

    It's called: High School of the Dead. It is what it sounds like. A couple high school kids are at school when the zombie apocalypse goes down and they then fight their way to safety.

    Now, I have to call it out for what it is. Actually, I'll (partially) quote Victor:

    "The chick was busting out of her top and jumping up and down while the big robot zombie... thing was eating her friend."


    Yes, it is loaded with fan service, there is the improbable, physics defying anatomy and a lot of gratuitous upskirting. Only one episode containing nudity, but still NSFW and DEFINITELY not for kids. But I got to tell ya, it was fun to watch, fan service aside. Given its somewhat adult nature I won't link it here, you can Google it. I have heard that it is on the Zune Marketplace.


    On to some others I have watched and enjoyed. Ghost in the Shell, Cowboy Bebop, Vandread, Burst Angel, Slayers, to name a few. My favorite however has got to be Full Metal Panic! 49 episodes across three seasons and one OVA so far... there's too much to say about it so you can check the link. The story is great and although there hasn't been any new animes since 2005, the manga is still going strong so there could be more.

    Hey, get a load of this. Guess who started writing again and has a spot in the fan fiction subforum?

    You got to check out Ergo Proxy. Sadly it only has 2 seasons, but it's the best anime I ever seen. Here's the trailer for it. I know some of the episodes are on Youtube.

    Thanks for the lead! It looks like this series is available via Hulu+.

    Oh yes, High School of the Dead...my favorite character is Kohta Hirano, which is incidentally also the name of the creator of Hellsing~I'm a girl and effing love this anime/manga...Saeko is the best!! So besides H.O.T.D & Hellsing/Hellsing Ultimate, here's my list of reccomendations:

    Cowboy Bebop: space western
    Fullmetal Alchemist/FMA: Brotherhood = epic.
    Ergo Proxy: LOVE
    Noein: To Your Other Self: Sci-Fi and beautiful imagery.
    Serial Experiments Lain: Sci-fi
    Boogiepop Phantom/Boogiepop & Others(Live action Prequel): awesome!
    Shiki: Vampires taking over a remote village=lots of blood, lots of death/philosophical arguements
    Neon Genesis Evangelion: must see
    Code Geass/Code Geass R2: oh yes, we need more of this (CLAMP did the character designs!)
    Fairy Tail: I'm pretty new to this one, but it's enjoyable Shonen
    Katekyo Hitman Reborn: not translated in English (the manga is) but the anime is pretty sweet
    Anything by CLAMP. This would include xxxHOLIC, Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles, X, &ct
    Death Note: If you like shows like Sherlock, or detective stories with supernatural elements, please see this one. the animation/VA is PERFECT. (I'm a Madhouse fan)
    Wolf's Rain
    Scrapped Princess
    School Rumble: for silly over the top humor and situations.
    Ghost Hunt

    If I think of more, I will definitely post again!

    Sword Art online is a fairly good one I recommend. It came out last year and supposed to be dubbed by aniplex this year.
    If the zombie invasion happens, the first place I'm going to is Taco Bell for some chalupas. It's the last place anyone would go to.

    So I noticed that Ghost in the shell is now on Netflix in the UK. I find t hard to find the time too watch a whole movie.
    Is it worth plunging through the barrier to entry in order too get too the gooey anime tv show inside? Do I even need to watch the movie?
    Will Crowbar reply too my post (I've missed you on here old bud)?

    So many questions but I promise only one more, bar attack on titan and sword art online is there any other good anime I should check out on Crunchy roll.
    If anybody answers Naruto they get a kick in the nuts and/ or any other genitalia possessed. Nt because I'm above it, I was a narutard once, but because I said GOOD anime.
    Pip Pip!
