    my 2 sense, (taste being one of them)

    I'll give it to Ramiko Takahashi, she comes through with her stuff. I have to say Lum is possibly THE cutest anime girl in the known galaxy, (dah-lingggg!!!). And let's not forget Ranma nibun no ichi! Not to mention a slew of other manga she's done, (doesn't she do like 4 a month or something). But, as great and talented as she is, (she gave us Happosai, forchrissake!) I have to say my fav. would be Go Nagai. C'mon gang, don't tell me you don't know Go Nagai! Perhaps the most influential artist of Japanese mangas since Astroboy! On his roster he's created Mazinger Z, (the first giant robot manga) Keko Camen, Hannapai Bazooka, (wich was sorta lacking, but still really cool), Matashiri family, (hilarious), Violence Jack, and more notebly Cutey Honey, (cowada-i-yo), and my favorite, DEVILMAN!!!! the later of the two titles i've named just come out with new titles themselves. Anyway, that's my opinion. But then again, I didn't really like Ninja Scroll better than, say, Those who hunt elves. Akira was cool, but i hate when people talk about it, and I hate Neon Genisis, (cause of the last episode). So, who am i to judge?

    P.S. a show you should REALLY check out whenever you get the chance. "the ping pong club". It's been called the "monty python of anime". Nuff said

    just for you quistaquay........

    Some of the more notable artists/creators include Masamune Shiro, (ghost in the shell I'm sure you've heard of, Apple seed, Dominion tank police, etc.) Katsuhiro Otomo, (akira, Wings of Honiomese, other noteable stuff htat I can't remember cause it was so long ago....) the guy who made "Crying Freeman", (pick up anything this guy does. The artwork is beautiful, and it's usually an indepth yakuza story with guns, honor and all around wickedness) The guy who does Gunsmith cats, Riding bean, (he has a fascinatino with hotrods// Wich are kinda hard to come by on the slim Japanese streets,//and guns// Wich are outlawed in Japan.// So most of his stories take place in USA) Some really good anime titles that i like are: All purpose cultural cat girl Nuku Nuku, Ping Pong club, Key the metal Idol, Please save my earth, Ranma Nibun no ichi, devilman, maison ikkuku, kimagori orange road, uresai yatsura, SD gundam, (believe it or not, I've never seen any of the gundam on TV, or Japan, just the chibi. Go fig) SD Devilman/ Mazinger Z is just as funny. EVERYTHING SD IS GREAT!!! IF YOU EVER SEE ANYTHING SD< GET IT FAST!!! SD RUL#Z!!!!! I love pokemon! any anime translated from the stories of the artists mentioned in any of my posts is generally good, and you should look into it. i have tons of titles I could suggest if you would like. But this should be enough to satiate you hunger for now.....

    I did a search on Google for uresai yatsura and it threw up lots of Star trek TNG sites - when i figured out why i was laughing out loud. Next time i need anime pointers I think i will sit down and watch TNG

    sippity

    as far as i know the only other thing that fujishima does besides ah my goddess is, you're under arrest...and if you liked video girl AI, you'll probably also like "DNA squared". It's a show i really enjoyed (until the last episode, wich totally didn't end the way i wanted it to so i hate it and made my own!) and NO, the Devilman was NOT crying on the last episode of VGAI, he just had something in his eye! IT WAS ALLERGY SEASON FORCHRISSAKE!

    Katsuiro Otomo
    Sci-fi to the top! Is him still alive? I heard he's dead...
    anyway Quistaquay I suggest you to try I's if you haven't red it yet!
    if you want cool sci-fi you MUST read "EDEN", "BLAME!", "FORTIFIED SCHOOL" and "SPRIGGAN"!
    Spriggan's OAV is really COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!!!
    Rumiko, what's her best manga? hmmmmmmmmmmm.....
    Urusei Yatsura or Maison Ikkoku?
    Maybe I like better Maison Ikkoku!
    Akane, have you read Her new manga, the one titled "Inu Yasha"? I did, but I didn't like it so much... sob
    It's only at its third number but... it's like an icecream with no taste...

    mangaka

    i have to be honest that i really don't pay attention to their names, buuuuuuuuuuuut...

    MASAKAZU KATSURA's style is good. always good. i"s kinda ended stupid though... well, if devilman's right about dna, maybe it's just his trend.

    the guy who does hunterXhunter and yu yu hakushou is good too. unique style that i enjoy. he has his off days though.

    Yukito Kishiro is good stuff if he's the guy (correct me if i'm wrong) who did Ushio to Tora. that manga is da bomb. great style. love it. i like stories about the supernatural.

    hmmmmmmm, who else...
    that's all for now.

    ah yes, almost forgot

    ping pong club. hilarious. i've read a few. although a little sick, it's freaking great. i own one of the videos. i think i like the mangas better.

    oh yes, and a thing about eva. yes, last episode was not that good, but i hope you've seen the movie. it all comes together much better. i love weird religious spins on animes, especially when you don't see them coming. eva seemed so innocent and care free at first. just another mech anime like gundam, but then it gets so weird.
    i love it because i find religious fanatacism facinating (se7en anybody?).

    ah well, sorry. it's a bit off topic.
