You got any other recommendations of animes with characters like Yoko from Gurren? I'm liking the series, entertainingly childish, though a bit much in the face. Even the cute one (the princess) doesn't annoy me in this, at least she has her strong points!
Little bit off topic, but did anyone catch the Death Note film on Film4 at the weekend?
I never knew it was on until about an hour after it started.
Part 2 next weekend
I've seen Death Note films 1 and 2 and they are not bad at all. Eagerly awaiting film 3's release as I do not know how they can make a film 3 (however it is implied in the booklet you get with the death note 2 boxset).
AciD303, i'll come back to you once I have had a good think Something tells me alot of titles I'll mention (Appleseed) you've already seen!
Quickly, you can check out Detroit Metal City, the female president of the band in that anime is quite....erm....forceful..shall we say.
EDIT for ACID303: Hrm...you can try Bakuretsu Tenshi Angel (I think is the title), El Hazard OAV (for the spunky Shayla-Shayla) and Kara no Kyoukai for Ryougi who isn't spunky but is slightly insane with murderous intent (and uber "eyes of death").

Michiko to Hatchin (from the first 2 or 3 eps I've seen, the lead woman is kinda crazy, sassy and doesn't give a damn! lol)
Tetsuwan Birdy Decode (Birdy has both a weak side and a, "I'm gonna arrest you no matter what" attitude)
and if you not seen it, Claymore None of the ladies there are weak or feeble or apologetic. They just beat the crap out of stuff!
Ahh ok 0iD I was curious about your opinipn on the show, even though I think it is quite...quite terrible.Originally Posted by 0iD
OMG THERE'S AN ANIME THREAD?!?!?!
Why did noone tell me about it xD
Which ongoing anime are you guys watching at the moment?
Gundam S2 <-- Epic
Clannad ~After story~ <-- OMG <3
White Album <-- Not bad but the main char keeps switching interests X_X
Kurokami <-- So so
Not that many good ones this season but Clannad + Gundam makes up for it Lots of second seasons of animes and most of the ones I haven't watched so I didn't bother watching the second season.
FMA 2nd season coming out after Gundam finishes !:O
I quite like Kurokami, nice bit of brutality to offset Maria-Holic, which is stupidly funny and offset White Album (drama/romance).
The problem with White Album is that it's fallen into the harem trap. I hoped it wouldn't go that way but it has and am really disappointed with it. I no longer can understand Touya and therefore the centre character for the series is lost for me and all that is left is the pathetic Yuki, the stealing Misaki and some other bit part characters. I shouldn't rag on it so much but...i had such high hopes for a slow, romantic drama of the two protagonist overcoming the massive hardship that is Yuki becoming an idol.
Oh word of warning to EVERYONE: DO NOT WATCH COSPRAYERS!!!! I cannot un-see what I have watched. I want my time back.
And yeah I was watching White Album and the first few episodes looked really good but now it's just girls being all over him :/ *Sigh* Guess that's why you cant count on eroges on becoming good animes (Well some are xD)
Can't believe you're not watching Clannad though... I guess I just love it too much and complain when I see people not watching it xD If you are watching it then give it some praise! It's gonna be getting sad here on :/
First two look good. Never been into the sword fighting animes (Kenshi was perhaps the exception, and that was more Samurai), it usually just makes for really crap sword-fighting scenes, but I'll give it a go if you recommend it!
EVERYONE: DO NOT WATCH COSPRAYERS!!!! I cannot un-see what I have watched. I want my time back.
So....Cosprayers < = Chobits?
How come you don't have Forbidden Planet in the where to buy?
and Forbidden planet international has a (very small) collection of memorabilia http://www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk/
Yes Cosprayers is MUCH MUCH worse than chobits but on a different level. Chobits was annoying for the chii~~ buisiness, Cosprayers just does your head in with the constant repetition, obvious scenes that do not need explaining (over and over)...it's just terrible.
Don't get me wrong, I love animes with fighting in them - depending on how it's done, of course - but its the sword-wielding ones that tug my goat because it's usually a clash of swords (clang clang clang) intertwined with guff dialogue not too dissimilar to "yo momma..." ... and if one of them doesn't die there and then, you know you're going to have to put up with another scene just like it later on!
Can probably say the same about any anime, or film for that matter, but I just think the sword wielding animes should just forget about the swords and just have 2 characters shouting at each other face to face, and be done with that!
