My favourite of all time will always be GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES. So devastating, so authentic, so real. It's no easy feat to make it all the way through, but it's an enrichening experience, one that left me a babbling mess of boogers, drool & tears. I could hardly focus on the screen most of the time, I was crying so much. I took four breaks to make a stiff gin & tonic to soften the edges. My, that's the saddest, most eviscerating thing I've ever seen!

Recently, OSEAM and MILLENIUM ACTRESS have been very good. Last year's Academy Award winning SEN TO CHIHIRO NO KAMIKAKUSHI was a beautiful little piece of fantasia from Miyazaki Hayao. Highly recommended.

I would also recommend ONLY YESTERDAY, which TUGS at the heartstrings - and our own memories of childhood. I cried and cried and cried, especially at the end. Again, we're talking bubbles & bobbles & beads of tears & boogers. Not because it's a sad, depressing flush like 'FIREFLIES,' but because of the nostalgic melancholia built up throughout the picture, realized w/ good faith, love & happiness in finale. Younger audiences may not appreciate it so much, as they're still making their memories (then again, they may, as these forums are full of old souls, bless you all ^_^ ) - but for those of us who know what it's like to sit in a window & recall our years long past - growing up, pains & all - the film strums all the right chords that resound in the halls & chambers of our very hearts.

As for series/OVAs:

KITE: UNCENSORED - Wow. Just wow. Brilliant, tough-as-nails, slick action & one of the finest fusion jazz scores I've ever heard in ANYTHING, Anime, live-action or otherwise.

CHOBITS - Haha, can't go wrong w/ CHI-POWER! ^_^

TOKYO UNDERGROUND - Very sweet, stylish stuff. I imagine you'd enjoy it.

I, also, enjoyed the FINAL FANTASY UNLIMITED series. That was really great.

Oh, and I agree - GRAVITATION is a fantastic series. It's warm, affecting, w/ gr8 music & fun characters.

As a sidenote: DeadOrAlive! Your Hontaro siggie scares me! Evil! ^_^

Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, Lost Exile, Witch Hunter Robin, Wolf's Rain, Naruto, Hack//Sign, GunGrave, 3x3 Eyes, Now and then Here and There, Getbackers, Scryed...are some really good ones. Another really strong favourite candidate right now is Samurai Champloo!

Azumanga Daioh is indeed hilarious.

I’ve only listened to that Anime’s Soundtrack (which is spetacular). I was curious to watch, but it’s not in my list of priorities. Is it really worth it?

If you ask me, YES!

👍

I mean, two guys helps a girl looking for a samurai that smells like sunflower. One is a quiet and mystic sort of type, the other is straight on and have a real groovey swordfighting/capoeira style going on. What can go wrong?! The "mood" of the anime is a bit on the darker side if things, somewhat like Cowboy Bebop, if you've seen it.

Which reminds me, is there anyone here who knows if the song played in episode 14 is available somewhere. That part just... got to me...

😭 :?
