Another awesome movie like Battle Royale would be "Versus."

Hilarious.

Almost forgot, "Samurai Fiction," too.

Yeah, I don't think so. Characters like Kiriyama really ruined the novel, I felt he was better in the movie, because he comes off less like a character created by a 12-year-old or something, and more like a weird sociopath, which is far more realistic than how he's portrayed in the novel. You can understand why they just omitted his backstory completely when they made the movie -- because it's stupid as hell. The movie is better because it omits all the stupid and poorly written backstories.The graphic novels were also pretty bad, but there's nudity, so I guess that's enough incentive for some bother with it. Wasn't enough for me, though. I'd recommend everyone just read the Running Man, the Long Walk, and Lord of the Flies [all of which undoubtedly inspired Battle Royale], and skip over the awful novel and graphic novel.

I agree that the second movie was terrible, though. Jesus Christ. It made zero sense.


I seriously disagree. Kiriyama being turned into "generic terminator kid" was one of the worst things that was done for the film, right along side "former teacher is the one running the program and Shinji deserved to be killed in the beginning"". He was much more frightening after I learned that he was incredibly smart, was in the class (instead of some hired gun) and really didn't care about picking off his fellow classmates after flipping a coin. He thought ahead and took out each kid coldly and efficiently in a realistic manner, unlike the movie's "RWAR! I CAN WITHSTAND BULLETS AND EXPLOSIONS JUS CUZ!" guy

A good deal of the kids just hunt themselves for cheap plot convenience and the silliest of deaths in the film (two kids jump off a cliff) actually became rather tragic in the comic.

I wasn't watching the movie for snuff film antics, I just wanted some hard core drama. I didn't get alot of that there, but both the book and comic worked really well for me (the fact that the comic got really graphic in its depictions didn't hurt either) and both had the luxury of time so we could get to know the kids, and the twisted world they lived in.

I've always called "Versus" the closest thing out there to "Devil May Cry: The Movie". It's no surprise they got Ryuhei Kitamura (the director of Versus) to script the cutscenes of DMC3. Another fine film by him is Godzilla: Final War which features gun katas, matrix fu, Godzillia kicking the crap out of the silly american version, and the living embodiment of Mayor Mike Haggar, Don Frye.

Has anyone here seen Sukiyaki Western yet?

Lets just say it raises more questions regarding the Shana/Yuji/Kazumi/Konoe relationship, as well as problems regarding Silver (one hell of a plot twist, btw).  As for animation...I have to say the quality isn't as good as the first, but its gotten better.  The fight scene where Pheles and Margery attack is probably one of the most intense in the series, if not the.  So, if you liked the first one, you'll more or less like the second.

As to where to find it, try www.lolipower.com, DDL#3.

IMO burst angel was good. Rahxephon is classic and of course soul taker and dirty pair flash. I like ST because it is a good philosophy based/psychological anime. And Dirty pair because... Who doesn't want a laugh? H20 is a really good one I'm waiting on more translations it is really surprisingly sad bit well written. Shadow Skill and G Gundam also. Yuyu Hakusho shoulda been left on Adult Swim.... Irrumatus aesinae.


Pandas on the storm.... Pandas on the storm.... Into this house we roam. Then to the streets we run. When the peeps aren't having fun it's to us they first shall come. Pandas on the storm... YEAH!

How can you like trinity soul, when only 3 episodes are out, and IMO, not very good ones... geno

I must admit that Trinity Soul is going too slow! But I like the style, the effects, the music of the opening and ending, and because Persona series are my favorite franchise of Megaten.

Anyway, I just think is going too slow by now, but I sense something bigger and cooler later on the anime.

Trigun is my favourite hands down. I love it how you can always tell when someone has watched it from someone who has just looked at pictures. anyone whos watched it will say its got a good story and characters, but anyone who hasnt will say its crap and just full of gunfights, and i do not just make this up, i have tested this theory out and it works

Right now I'm waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay into Miyazaki's late 70s mini(well as "mini" as you can get with compendious anime)-series Future Boy Conan, a surprisingly heart warming post-apocalyptic story about a kid who pretty much raises himself after his grandpa dies on a small island after the world is destroyed in some sort of "magnetic war."  I guess its based off of an Alexander Key novel called "The Incredible Tide," which I incidentally had the pleasure of reading in seventh grade, after which I promptly forgot all about it.  Apparently its an *extremely* rare novel and was only in print (in English I suppose) for a few years in the 70s as is my understanding.  <------- Digression

Other than that its all been Kagaku Ninjatai Gatchaman!

And of course the new Hakaba no Kitarou series that's airing in Japan right now... Whenever they get around to being uploaded on Youtube that is...
