Actually, if you look hard enough, there's probabaly an store that carry animes titles around your somewhere around your neighbourhood.

Anime are sooooooo much more superior then American comics and cartoon.

Take Spawn for example, one of the most popular comics in North America, but it is a spin-off from "Guyver: Bio-Boosted Armour" which is like Japanese Manga from the early 80s.

And the stories of anime are actually changing unlike the always "super heros" theme of the North American comics. If any of you guys seen Evangelion before, then you know what I'm talking about, but it did seriously pissed off some Christian society in North America

If you are an immortal, do you "rot" simply because of the

A warning though, Japanese people really likes to tie "porno" to their anime, so choose wisely. But if you stick with the big titles, then you should be okey.

BlueElectron, the word is "Hentai" in Japanese. Anime is just like what we have in live action films. Drama, comedy, action, etc. and Porno as well. Hentai can be avoided as any porno film can, as its usually hidden off in the 18-or-older section.

I know what hentai is, but seriously though, almost every single anime out there have some form of "sex" in it, even the non-hentai one.

And the scary thing is, most of the anime are not rated back in Asia, they're only rated once they are translated and published in English.

Blue, you can make the same assumption about live action films here too! Most of them have some sort of sex in the as well.

And I say bah to the translated stuff. Subtitles is by far better.

That's because sex is spoken of more freely in Japan than in the more "Christian" parts of the world. Same thing with nudity. It's widely accepted and most of the times goes along with the story. Ever seen DBZ? The parts where Goku (original DB series), and Gohan change back from the were-apes. Their clothes are torn to shreds, so obviously they are going to be naked (unlike the Hulk, whose muscles rip off all but a very versatile pair of shorts.) Then when they stand up, there's a well placed branch (by the American editors) over their butt. Most of the sexually oriented material is put with the adult videos, but you should expect a little nudity, or sexual innuendo, just because the culture allows it.

PS what about the Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama, or South Park? They have bare butts, sexual innuendo, and the such in their cartoons, too?

My friend, on that notion, I'm sorry to inform you that you're wrong.

Having a family background compose of entirely of Asian culture, I know that for a fact, most Asian cultures are much less open then general white cultures, the topics of "sex" was and still is consider a "taboo" for them.

Hell, in the early mid 80s to early 90s, when students come across the human sexuality unit in CALM class back in many asian nations (including mine homeland of course), the teachers usually avoid teaching the unit, and tell student to study the text by themselves.

Beside, sometime you have to question Japanese approach to the issue of "sex". After all, they do have the biggest and maybe the sickist porn industry in the world. They DO like to associate sex with every form of public media, and I believe they do it in a subtle yet perverted kinda way, not the "clean, safe, positive" kinda sex that people would prefer.

I don't know if anyone understands what I'm saying, but I hope that I made sense.

Wasn't there some kind of sex thing in the original Pokémon theme song, which was, of course, changed in the American version? I heard that somewhere...

I'm a bit of an anime fan myself, titles like Ghost in the Shell and Fist of the North Star offer a refreshing change to the same old crap we get here. The fact that most of these films have some sort of sexual innuendo doesn't bother me, though. I really don't see what the big deal is.
The only problem is that the TV companies here don't seem to want to show them.(Pussies). I bought a few on video, but shelling out 15 for a film every time you want to watch anime is too expensive,(especially if each one is just a half-hour installment of a 12-part series) and the video rental agencies here never have manga either. It's not too bad if a group of friends are into it as well and you can share videos.
I think the problem is that most people here don't take animated films seriously, they think that animation is only for comedy and children's programs. Think of the resources that went into films like Pocahontas etc. If that kind of money was put into anime....(druelling at the mouth).
By the way, did anyone see the live action version of FoTNS (crap) and Crying Freeman(excellent)?

Hey Gurgeh, have you tried finding some place that carries fan-subbed titles? These are normally cheaper than the commercially subtitled versions. Plus, you can find anime online as well. Some places carry files of entire episodes.

The original Japanese opening (which is FAR FAR FAR better than the quite good US one), has the line that goes something like "i'll travel far and wide and under the skirt of a girl" *scream*. It's the opening shot, which in the Japanese version is where we get the fast pull back of Charizard, Blastoise and Venussaur, then Pikachu runs past that girl. Strangely, he DOES run past, not under. It's got excellent music though. Get the Japanese CD if you can.

Actually, the new Jolt League intro looks cool too.

If you're intrested, as of the Jolt League eps (Gold/Silver series), according to the titles, Ash has the three new starter Pokemon (Crocodile, weird poo onlegs thing, and the other one), pluis Squirtle, Bulbasaur and Charizard. Misty is holding Togepi. Brock's there (yaaa) but we don't see his Pokemon. I think someone might have kept Tracy's Meril though. (Although they should keep his Scyther. He was a bad-ass).

Actually, isn't Bulbasaur his most loyal Pokemon? He's not cocky like Squirtle. He's not in love with him liek Pikachu. He's just there, reliable, dependable, and yet incapable of using his solar-beam attack more than once a season. Tsk.

Oh, and Team Rocket get Snubble. I think. And Tracy stays with Prof Oak (don't scream too loudly).

Still let's hope that Squirlte and Bulby don't evolve eh? Okay, so Blastiose is cool, but Venusaur is the ugliest thing I've seen since, well, Victreebel.

I just couldn't see Bulbasaur with the same attitude (stubborn, yet loyal) as a Venusaur (Victreebel is definitely the ugliest, but Venusaur is definitely in the top 10), Squirtle will never disown his formal Squirtle squad members (which is why he still keeps the glasses) I still think Ash is a dumbass for letting Pidgeot go, but what's worse is that he doesn't catch any new ones (but maybe once or twice a season.)

What makes it even more stupid was the fact that Pigeotto was about the only Pokemon that Ash actually caught (apart from Caterpie), using Pokemon, and Pokeballs, rather than just being nice and having them follow (Squirtle, Charmander, Lapras, blah blah).

And I think Squirtle just keeps the glasses cause they look cool.

Anyway, how does Ash catch the snot on legs and the other two gold/silver Pokemon? Does someone drop a pie, Ash makes a new one, and they are so overwhelmed by his niceness that they just tag along?

And who gets to keep Scyther? Eh?

Snot on legs as in Primeape? He caught him fair and square (Charmander beat it down with Rage).
