And the solution is to "report" the post & let Julien deal with it, as several of us already have, rather than to quote the offending link in your own post, so that it will be around even if he removes the original. (That's what the little exclamation point button in the top right corner is for.)

Me? I just wrapped up the 6 episode OVA Golden Boy. What a phenomenal, borderline pornographic take on anime. I spent the majority of my time just laughing my a** off.

try to read the manga since he took longer to finish that than the movie. It does go in an interesting direction. I'd need to read that again and watch it some time. I would like to start reading AKIRA club book I have. I have too much to read :oops:

I've been meaning to read the manga as I've been told it explains a lot. But, 6 volumes at $25/volume make it quite an investment. I may just re-watch Akira: Special Collection (1988) [PILA-1086] until I completely understand it, or I grow to absolutely hate it.

I'll add some modern stuff I've been watching or finished watching recently:

Hyouka: Fantastic series 9.5/10 for me.

Currently watching:
Flowers of Evil: Also fantastic, art house-rotoscoped title with dark tones.
Attack on Titan: An extremely popular anime that has been purchased for hollywood remake it seems. Watched first episode, and well it lives up to it's hype. Fans of Berserk will enjoy this.
Space Brothers: I need to continue watching this ongoing, I stopped around episode 40 but was because I became busy. But this series gives the definition of character development.

Space Brothers is a totally amazing show. One of the best shows in ages.

I'm currently watching Mobile Suit Gundam: Mastergrade Box [BEAL-934]. Its pretty rad. This is, AFAIK, the most fancy version of the movies released before they went crazy with re-recorded the dialogue, replacing sound FX, and converting to a 5.1 mix. Video quality is flawless and considering how rough the source is for this very cheaply animated movie (most footage is culled from the TV series) I can't see any reason to want anything better than LD. The number of sides is...a little crazy, I guess (8 discs for three movies) but its worth it.

I took me a couple of days to figure out how to use the Photo CD. I didn't realize how proprietary they were and also how support for the things had disappeared. IFAIK its literally impossible to view them on a 64-bit Mac so I used a PPC Mac Mini with Photoshop CS2 to view them.

Aku no Hana is amazing indeed.
May absolute fave this season.
I also enjoy Photokano a lot.

Popped in Giant Robo to watch again. So love that series. It was remastered on Blu-ray in Japan recently. Debating on getting it though because it features the AnimeWorks dub, not the LA Hero/Manga Entertainment dub (the dub on the US LD and VHS releases.)

Sure I shouldn't care since I usually watch the Japanese language with subs, but in the off chance that I have to watch the dub (like with my nieces and nephews who can't read that fast) it matters!

Giant Robo is sooooooo great. The commentaries on the DVDs are great, but of course I prefer the LDs.

I keep passing over Photokano but I will definitely give it a go now :)

Love KOR, especially the movie "Summers Beginning". When I was younger I had a fan translated version of the novel (I'm assuming now it was a light novel trans) it was based on, which was fantastic as well.

That sounds very interesting. I may try to find that. Are novelizations of anime series common? Or did the novel come first?

Not sure, I believe it's the Shin Kor ones could be novelizations, this looks like it :

The one I remember reading was the storyline that was in Summer's Beginning, I think, the one with the accident/time travel elements.
