So there we were last night at the video store, about $25 in hand,
looking at the vast collection of Japanamation, with absolutely NO idea
which one(s) to buy. Grrr.
There weren't nearly as many titles the last time I ventured in there.
Unfortunately the local video rental store only stocks the likes of
"Street Fighter II" -type anime's, so I can't try-before-I-buy.
I've noticed that some of the better-looking ones seem to come in
many(!) -part series (like "Neon Genesis"), but at $20-30 per video,
that's more like an investment portfolio, than an evening's
I own "Ghost in the Shell" which we really, really like. I also have
the US movie version of "Armitage the Third" (the Kiefer Sutherland &
Elizabeth Berkley edition)-- another goodie!
<Initiating on-topic re-alignment (since DV's a-gunnin')>
Are there any other SHADOWRUN-ish anime's out there?
I'm looking for something with good artwork, storyline, characters, &
realism (or at least _one_ of the above). Preferably English versions.
Something I can throw at my players would be nice, too. Giant robots
are okay. (Geeze, this sounds like a personal ad!)
I have a number of anime books, including "Midnight Eye:Gokü, Private
Investigator," which has a real SHADOWRUN-y feel to it, plus all of the
(US) originals of "Crying Freeman." But I'm dubious as to how well
these'd translate onto video. I'm wide open to suggestions, here!
Heck, I'll settle for *any* good non-A-Ko-ish (is that a word?) 'toon!
--Fenris, who actually owns 2 A-Ko flicks.
(>) Ahhh. I see your 'crane style' is very formidable.
But it no match for my doggie-style.
