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

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 Hope you find what you're looking for!
BTW: AS stopped airing Trigun. Ghost in a Shell took its place sadly

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.

Read or Die aka R.O.D., the anime and OAV Samurai Champloo (This may be a little violent). Saiyuki
These ones are rather bloody... but then again, what do I know? Boogiepop Phantom scares me. (::Wimp: The ROD Anime's not bad at all barring a few mildly bloody episodes that merited a PG rating.

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
Um, check the shipping price. That's usually where they stick ya.
