[QUOTE]Dennou Coil[/QUOTE] [QUOTE]I'd also recommend Tôkyô Magnitude 8.0[/QUOTE] Nekros and Hague know their animu very well and I cannot second them enough. [QUOTE] Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo -> Not quite up to the style of the request, netherless is still quite a well achieved movie. THE WORLDO! [/QUOTE] This too. Also, second hand info, but I've been strongly recommended [i]Michiko to Hatchin[/i] (very in the vein of CBebop) and [i]Kaiji[/i] as well. Finally, on my own I would like to add 2 more, I don't know how much they relate to your expectations, Tai-pan, but shit be quality material here: - One is [b]Aoi Bungaku[/b], animu adaptations of 6 Japanese literature classics, which is a quite a novelty for original sources, instead of the usual manga/light novel/eroge ones. Pretentious smartass stuff, now with 100% more bishie, as character designs are provided by specialists on the subject Kubo Tite, Takeshi Obata and Takeshi Konomi. [:2ch_gets:] Snarkiness aside, it is really worth watching to see their interpretation of each story (and extract your own from there), the rather high production values and the remarkable change in style each story brings about (most prominent being the one between the 2 first stories "Ningen shikkaku" and "sakura no mori no mankai no shita"), so it hardly gets stale. - The other is, [URL=http://www.crunchyroll.com/library/Time_of_Eve][b]Time of Eve[/b][/URL] ([i]Eve no jikan[/i]), by Yasuhiro Yoshiura who previously made on his own the shorts [i]Pale Coccoon[/i] and [i]Mizu no kotoba[/i], both very recommended as well (in fact "Eve" can be partially seen as an expansion on the latter). It is basically another story centered on humans living with robots programmed with Asimov's three laws, but told from an intimistic and personal PoV (for both humans, robots and their relations) instead of the trite "machines rebels against us" theme. Very touching, specially (for me) chapters 3 and 4. EDIT: Also, it is getting movie format and theatrical release this spring, with new stuff added whatsoever. *Anxiously waiting for a 2nd season* PS: And yes, this post served as an excuse to show the new avatar and tag. Sue me. :p *lurks off again*
