I'm not into the whole anime thing. . .

but I've decided Paranoia Agent, Paprika, My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, and Princess Mononoke(questionable) are pretty good. Especially the Paprika movie. Just thought I'd let you know.

Not at the moment, but Densha Otoko is a real show that is really funny.

Pretty much every Miyazaki movie (Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, etc) is enjoyable by people who dislike anime AKA 'violent porn comics'

Exactly.

I don't really like anime because well, I don't know I just think things like Inuyasha and Naruto are dumb and others come by as boring.(no offense to people who like those shows)

Full Metal Alchemist is good (I hear). Old Tenchi Muyo isn't bad either, and neither is Inuyasha.
Akira was one of the best movies I've ever seen, and it's all anime.

However, I'm nowhere near an avid anime watcher, nor do I think I'll be. Too busy being on my bike Plus, at least in my school, being with some of those guys makes you not want to be into it.

Imagine being in a concert that's a part of an anime convention, and the first smell that you sense is that of countless days of shower-fasting due to anime marathons (and maybe school work)...A room full of many antisocialities is an interesting experience, though 8-bit music is pretty awesome.

I think a lot of anime is "deeper" than many American cartoons, so I enjoy watching it.

I'm currently watching Library War, which is about the government restricting freedom of speech so much that libraries need their own military power. Veeeery interesting. But! The episodes are still being banged out as we speak, so bleh. Shall have to wait for next week's episode. Also watching Vampire Knight, which is a lot more shallow, but hey, a girl's gotta have entertainment and drool over cute anime vampires). Same problem though, I only get to watch it at least a couple of hours after the Japanese people do, and I don't usually like waiting a whole darn week for the next episode (hurrah DVDs). Ah well.

*curls up to sleep until next week*

Akira is cool. The video I linked to above is by the guy who did Akira.

only anime i've seen that i like are ghost in the shell (the series is better than the movies. a bit corny at times but good), cowboy bebop (excellent), and neon genesis evangelion (more disturbing than the beach invasion on saving private ryan).
