    Ghost In The Shell

    Today I watched a fantastic film/anime called Ghost In The Shell.
    Its one of the first anime films i have watched and I really liked it!
    Confusing in places but reasonably understandable. It reminded me slightly of The Matrix with the robots and stuff.

    If you like Sci-Fi or Anime i suggest you give this a shot.

    Have it on good old VSH but have not watched if for a long time now, bought it when it first came out and have not watched it since then.

    Will have to dig it out and give it another viewing over the weekend.

    Ghost in the Shell was one of the first proper anime's I watched and I really did like it. I liked it because it made me think and its a nice change for an action themed film to do that.

    I think its on the list of must see's when you want to get into anime. I'm just trying to get around to watching Akira now as people keep telling me I need to see it.

    aint it manga when its dubbed

    yeh its a classic, and definately a mind expander, much on a par with the idea's and stuff out of Apocalypse Now,

    both films had my mind blown for ages.

    Akira is the next one u must see, been out for years, try and get the jap version tho, as the UK manga makes no sense at all really

    Ghost in the shell is VERY enjoyable, and makes you think in a whole other way.

    Apocalypse now is a true classic in the sense of the word, can there ever be another film quite like that...............

    TGITS is a classic

    akira can be a really confusing film if you dont understand the true meaning of the film and the subbed english version is better then the dubbed

    classic manga is a masterpeice of work all hand drawn etc

    btw another title to look for is appleseed and all of the dominion tank police series numbers 3 - 12 (1+2 are old promos)

    I have been told to get hold of a copy of Full Metal Panic by my friends at anime-city forums. They say that it a good place to start if your wanting to get into anime and you love sci fi. which i do.

    Akira you have to watch several times to understand it.

    If you want SERIOUSLY DISTURBING then watch Urotsukidji.

    GITS - stand alone complex series is better than the film imo.
    I dont like sig pics so i turn off sigs Which doesnt help when i dont know what ive written here! DOH!

    Cowboy Bebop is the best way to get into anime imo But im biased cause it got me into it.

    I'll agree with Bindi...... you might wanna try either Cowboy Bebop or Outlaw Star Mojo mate. They've both got a nice fast pace to them, are packed with action and funny to boot!

    If you like shows about vampires, witches, the occult, etc then I'd recommend you give Witch Hunter Robin a try. From what I've watched I love it! Its character development seems pretty damn fine so far and its got enough action thrown in to keep me happy

    I've decided I'm not after a whole series. So are there any films out there which i should look out for. Apart from Akira.

    I really liked Blood - the last vampire personally. But its way too short.
