Samurai Champloo is a brilliant series (and Cowboy Bebop too if you by some chance haven't seen it)

Bebop leaves me cold. Dunno why.

Recently I've been enjoying Dragonball Z on the remastered American DVD box sets. They've been cropped to widescreen, but they look as good as I could've hoped for and they have the original Japanese audio with excellent English subs. The cropping is silly and pointless, but as DBZ isn't exactly high art it doesn't greatly affect the composition. Worth a punt if you're a fan.

Seen both, big fan of Bebop. One of my all times favs shame they didnt make more. Maybe not drag it out as long as dragonball z (even tho i loved it!) or Naruto. Top stuff especially the film.

Such an epic show. For years was my fav show. Even when they aired really poor sagas like the Garlic Jnr one! Just one complaint how many times did the writers get themselves in trouble and bail themselves out with the spitit bomb!

As I mentioned in the CRT thread, you can watch it on Sky on channel 195 from 8pm on Sundays, next week is ep 3 so get the first couple and you can catch the rest on tv.

Giant Robo is absolutely awesome and you can get the R1 boxset of it dirt cheap.

Also recommend -

S-Cry-Ed
Witch Hunter Robin
Heat Guy J (boxset for the full series is only £7.99 at Play i think)
Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Highlander: The Search For Vengeance

I love Stand Alone Complex. Solid State Society will be out soon, but I think I'll wait for that to appear in a sale. Speaking of which, thanks for the heads-up about the Heat Guy J boxset at Play, Ghost Dog. I've never seen it, but £7.99 for the complete series is too good to pass up.

Thanks for the heads up.

Unfortunately I don't have Sky so I'm out of luck in that respect. Thanks again though.

I'll second that recommendation. I finally got around to watching my R1 DVDs (after having paid full price for the individual volumes when they first came out) earlier this year and it was an excellent show. I haven't seen the Ginrei Special though, which I can either buy separately or I could just buy the box-set of the whole show (which includes the Ginrei Special) at the same price!

I also watched Kaze no Yojimbo recently after DeepDiscountDVD finally shipped it to me (ordered it in last years 20% off sale). That was an interesting series, one that gets better as it moves along and you become more accustomed with the style (think Trauma Center or Phoenix Wright videogames, where characters slide in and out of the screen against a fuzzy backdrop). It's basically a mini-mystery adventure, one that unfolds through a central figure who works both sides of a small town which is run by two opposing mobs.

Been a very long time since I've seen Ginrei special (about 1 week after the UK VHS release ) but from what I remember it was amusing, and a little bizarre.

Thanks for that Ghost Dog, just placed an order for this as it sounded like it was up my street and a bargain to boot.

The only Anime I've got around to watching recently is FLCL. Anyone else seen that? It's completely mental and it's the only anime show where I've had to go over to the English dub because the gags come so fast that I couldn't keep up with the subtitles.

Before that I watched Blood+ (TV spin off to the OVA DVD) which was pretty good.
