Deliicious chinese cartoons
This' the upcoming season
It's kinda long, but I only really watch a couple hours a week these days..
If you liked Mnemosyne, consider Kite (original, or Liberator), Karas, Kara no Kyoukai, or Mardock Scramble
idk about Netflix availibility, never use it.
I feel I should post in this. I have recently seen two similar series, and will give a small view of them.
1. Elfen Lied (13 episodes) - Psychological, Graphical Violence, Action? - Human Mutations/Genetics
I'm not really good at classifying genres, but I'd have to say it's psychological graphical violence. Some of the positives is that it does delve into a lot of psychological themes - racial vilification, social alienation, revenge and regret, the question of whether one born evil or if it is a circumstancial result, superiority complexes and childhood bullying.
It was the first extremely graphic anime I have seen, and while it was at first a bit... "This is messed up," it did not retract from the story. If you're okay with heavy amounts of blood and violence, bullying, and murder in a story-sense, the story is definitely enjoyable, and encourages you to consider different situations visible in some humans' realities. It deals with potentially real-life themes.
In addition, being 13 episodes long, it can be watched quickly, and has a general conclusion to its story. This is a plus for me, as I am looking for animes with a conclusion, and limited length.
Unfortunately, due to only being 13 episodes, it does leave the ultimate conclusion out of it. The primary story with its characters is concluded, but there are further questions that allow the story to continue with other characters, which wasn't of primary concern in this series. It also includes a question for one of the main characters at the end, which is a drawback.
Ultimately, I really enjoyed the questions it made me consider, the viewpoints of certain harsh and violent events and possibilities, and feel somewhat for (and against) some of the characters. And the story was decent and flowing as well. No real filler episodes, and always moving towards the conclusion.
I'll postpone the other anime until another time. The problem with other animes I've seen (Dragon Ball/Pokemon/InuYasha/some of YuYu Hakudoshi (spelling???) is that they are 95% filler episodes, and there is no real conclusion. Sure, InuYasha had a conclusion... After 195 episodes, most of which had no impact on the overall story! (I did enjoy InuYasha, as a light-hearted, sweet and fun story, but really want something that cuts the filler, and actually has good pacing and a visible conclusion that it hints towards.
I was told about one recently. Let's see, hmm...
*digs thru inboxes*
here we are! The English translation is "Hell Girl". The show is called "Jigoku Shojo". I saw a trailer and it def interested me. 26 episodes long.
"Synopsis: Somewhere in the vast sea of the Internet, there's a website that can only be accessed at the stroke of midnight. Known as the Jigoku Tsushin, rumor has it that if you post a grudge there, the Jigoku Shoujo will appear and drag whoever torments you into the inferno. Very little is known about the girl - all we know for sure is that she lives with her equally enigmatic grandmother, that three magical straw dolls accompany and serve her, and that whenever a posting on the Jigoku Tsushin moves her, she becomes the Jigoku Shoujo"
That was funny, I've only seen a couple of those.
I've only seen a couple of these too, but I think it's only been the Vegeta and Nappa moments. My friend Cheeto has watched all the Abridged episodes. They may be on season 3.
I like my Elfquest
Totally mistook "3 fingered" as something else.
More Anime when I was a kid,
now get off my lawn!
"Kimba" made me think of simba.
Now consider the phrase, "My uncle? He is in the simba!".
In Kenyan, that's fine.
In Swahili, well, not so much.
Strange that the same part of the world, one word would have two relevant, but vastly different, meanings.
The misunderstandings over the years would have been epic.
