Title: Lets see some Anime
Post by: Kat Rocha on June 17, 2008, 01:49:55 PM
I love anime. But ya gotta admit that, just like everything else, there are some great films, and some really big turds out there As well,  there are some classics that are great but flawed in their awesomeness (similar to the Gene Wilder Wonka.)

So, I suggest some classics that people may have in their collection or are relatively easy to get a hold of.

Vampire Hunter D (the original) a classic, great fun, but also kinda bad.
Demon City Shinjuku... it.. just... begs... for... it.
First episode or two so of Record of Lodoss Wars. Again, very fun, a classic... but flawed in it's awesomeness.
First episode or two of Bastard. Lots of oportunity to make Twisted Sister references in this one.
Any other suggestions?

I always thought the Cowboy Beebop movie(while being on of my favorites)could make a good riff.

Or how about on of the Inuyasa movies?

I'd second the Cowboy Bebop movie, as much as I love all things Bebop it does have that over the top actiony tone that can usually lead to great riffing.

The Tenchi Muyo movies might work, Ghost in the Shell could work if for no other reason than the fact that it inspired the Matrix.  I'm trying to think if any of the Miyazaki films could work, just as further evidence that even great movies can be riffed.  Castle of Cagliostro maybe.

I think Spirited Away could be a good one. It's just so bizarre, what with the parents turning into pigs, the muck monster going for a bath, and the big-faced grandma (look familiar Mike?  :P)...I think the boys could have a ball with it!

Well, two problems.

First of all, there's a heck of a lot of titles out there. And a lot of them are very obscure. Once you move beyond the stuff that Adult Swim shows... with only a handful of exceptions most titles are going to be too obscure for the guys to make any money back. Sure, it might be great if they riffed, say, Sakura Diaries but I doubt anyone but me on this site owns the thing.

Problem Two- what version do you use? Look at the Alien board for a sec.  See the number of "what version do we use?" posts. Now imagine if the guys riff say, Neon Genesis Evangelion.  "I've got  the Platinum version!" "I've got the first release!" "I got the Chinese version!" "I downloaded mine!" It'll be the root cause of Torgo's ulcer.

Hey, if Mike and the guys find a good title, I'll buy it. But I don't know it they can find one that'll work.

(BTW: at some point, a fan riff of Akira will be released, once the editor finishes with it.)

The Cowboy Beebop  and Inuyasha movies have only ever been released in one format and they would both make great trax.

What about some Dragonball Z films. Now that is riff worthy...

Anime is not all for children. There's quite a lot aimed at adults (and I don't mean the porn). Like everything else, it just depends on which series/movie you pick.

I do understand about the question on which version. That's why I tried to suggest titles that (to my knowlege) had very few or only one release on DVD to try and make it easier.

Their intended audience isnt the point. The adults that watch anime tend to be raving lunatics and their opinions shouldnt be considered on this or any board.

*ahem* yeah okay.  I don't think I fit into the raving lunatic category, nor do any of my anime-fan friends, but whatever.
