OOh I forgot, Sword of the Berserk!! Maybe my all time favorite for anime. And then that famous one, uh where the guy shoots the arrows so hard it chops off a guys hand. You know what Im talking about.

Yes, the Appleseed story gets pretty convoluted pretty quick. But the animation is so hypnotically beautiful that you just ignore the story after a while.

If anything, the first 15 minutes of the DVD is a good showcase for home theater sound systems and HDTV's.

Quote from: "Jimmy the Fish"
The Cowboy Bebop movie was good. Then I saw the recently released Appleseed movie on DVD.

Holy schnike. The animation was breathtaking.

I thought the animation was almost wooden compared to some other traditionally animated movies. It was like they had this amazing looking visual style and lots of money to work with, but they couldn't hire a decent animator to bring the characters to life.

I'm really enjoying Paranoia Agent.  It's by Satoshi Kon who did Millenium Actress & Perfect Blue.  It's a shorter series (13 episodes) about several attacks on people by a young boy with a bat.  The characters all tie together in some way and the series is very moody and mysterious.  Kn some ways the attacks are welcome by the victims and part of the fun is trying to figure out why.  There are no spiky-haired protagonists (Hi Cloud!) and the whole show has a very creepy vibe.  I'm only 6 episodes into it but I'm definitely recommending this.
