Hi. First post.
I'm bored. Not that I've seen everything out there, but I've watched about every america series I can stand, I've saturated myself with dozens of anime series, and now I'm looking for something new to pique my interest. Preferably something easily accessible (not some super rare russian sand animation or something ;) ).
To give a general idea my (questionable) taste (in no particular order) leans toward:
futurama - fun(ny)
old simpsons - fun(ny)
cowboy bebop - great characters
flcl - amazing animation + characters
family guy - stewie fun(ny)
escaflowne - cool
hajime - entertaining
invader zim - good stuff
champloo - amazing animation (at first)
miyazaki/ghibli - some of their stuff = amazing. others = meh
- totoro - love it. great characters
- spirited - love it
- mononoke - really like it
- porco - like it
- howl's - like it
I'm looking for something fresh and new (like bebop was for me 8 years ago). Not necessarily mainstream, but stuff that is clearly quality (none of this aquateen/12oz mouse budget stuff. No offense, that dialogue is funny and all, but...). I don't mind independant animation, but I'm looking for something more series/studio driven. I'm not opposed to america or japanese animation if someone has a rare gem, but I am saying I sort of feel like i've reached the end of those roads.
