Hmm … how come I know I am getting the same look I got from the rental store guy …

Anyway … looking for suggestions for Anime available in US that I can rent … buy … etc.

My first experience with Anime was Ronin Warriors / “Samurai Troopers” … from there I’ve enjoyed Sailor Moon, The different Dragon Ball series, Yu-Gi-Oh (*blush* I know … I know ... my husband thinks the same thing) … and recently started watching Inuyasha and Full Metal Alchemist. FMA is probably as dark as I’d like to go.

Just looking for suggestions of titles … and thought this would be the perfect place to ask.

Thank you in advance! ~ K

Ew. Don't watch Full Metal Panic. Save yourself the sanity.
Then again, Inuyasha is pretty bad too... as is DBZ.

But I'm just spewing my opinion

I would highly reccomend any films by studio Ghibli, in particular;

Princess Mononoke (Violent. No more than FMA, though)
My Neighbor Totoro (Only if you want something so cute your face will melt. tongue.gif)
Spirited Away (Not my favorite, but it is definitely one of the biggest films of the past several years)
Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind
Grave of the Fireflies (I reccomend 1 box of kleenex)


Aside from that;

Haibane Renmei A tame series and truly gorgeous work of art.
Fruits Basket- A relatively simple and standard Shoujo anime about how one person can effect others' lives. Lighthearted, and emotion-diving. My personal favorite.
Azumanga Daioh- Cute, funny, completely pointless in every way. Kind of like seinfeld; it's a show about nothing, and it's frigging hilarious.
Noir- An action series, really good for little else than to watch the wonderful fight scenes. Violent, but bloodless.
Cowboy Bebop- Depending on the episode it can be anywhere from G to 13/R-ish material, but it's a generally fun series. Salty language, some bloodiness, etc. Watch it and worship Ed.

Satoshi Kon's film- "Millenium Actress"

That's all I can think of at the moment.

I reccomend no more trollage. >>

Um...depends on what you like I suppose. I see Sailor Moon was on your list. If you truly liked that I would reccommend other shoujo anime such as Card captor Sakura. Also Full Moon wo Sagashite. FMwS is not licensed in the USA but you can find downloads of it online and plus there are import DVD's you can buy online which is what I did. I reccoomend that you have kleenex by you when you watch the last quarter of the show though--->gets pretty emotional and sad. Oh and Love Hina is good too. Each episode seems pretty pointless but it's funny in its own way.

Trigun is a really good series, but I have only seen some of it so I don't know how violent it really gets. I never saw anything as bloody as FMA can be though. I think it is on Adult Swim on Sundays at like 1:30 if you want to check it out though.

Hmm I can buy the box set of "Trigun" on Amazon for $150 ... or on e-bay for $2.00 *chuckles* Would $2.00 even pay for the pirated DVDs they are printed on? Will look into it, thanks for the suggestions ~ K

Samurai Champloo (This may be a little violent).
Chrno Crusade (Don't watch this if you're very religious)
Gankutsuou (Is it available yet? Probably not. Check anyway.)
Last Exile

Gash Bell (dubbed name Zatch Bell) is a completely bloodless anime as far as I've seen. It's a kids anime, so how much violence could there possibly be? They show it on Cartoon Network at 9:30 on Saturdays. You might not like the dubbed voices though. One Piece is another harmless anime...as far as I know. It airs right after Zatch Bell. These are just suggestions happy.gif Hope you find what you're looking for!

BTW: AS stopped airing Trigun. Ghost in a Shell took its place sadly sad.gif

Ummm... FMA is a kids' anime as well. As is Naruto, Rurouni Kenshin, InuYasha, YuYu Hakusho, etc. Not very un-bloody.

Heck, there are very few anime I can think of that aren't targeted towards kids.
Ironically many of the adult aimed series I've seen have less gratuitous violence/blood/nudity, etc than the kids' series. Go figure.

These ones are rather bloody... but then again, what do I know? Boogiepop Phantom scares me. (::Wimp:smile.gif The ROD Anime's not bad at all barring a few mildly bloody episodes that merited a PG rating.

It's a great anime, but definitely not for the faint of heart.

Ahh, Elfen Lied . . . the opening sequence to Elfen Lied is one of the things I liked most about it (it hooked me into the anime before the anime itself even did the job). The imitation of Klimt is nicely done, a good concept. The other parts, however, I'm not so fond of since I'm female, but I'm sure Bacon appreciates it. tongue.gif But it's incorporated into beautiful artwork all the same.

But yes, with your search criteria the way it is, DO NOT look up anything on Elfen Lied, unless you're really really curious.

There aren't many very good anime productions that aren't violent or bloody or provocative. Aside from everything already mentioned, "Wind: A Breath of Heart" isn't all that violent at all, but it's not very good. Episodes are about 10 minutes long.
