@themcnoisy: That's actually the best place you could take a break in the series as after that Episode 27 is an interlude episode, which has a few new scenes but is mostly a recap of the series so far.
From 16/08/15 I’m going for sober for six months to raise money for the Princess Alice Hospice. Donations can be made here and anything you can offer is greatly appreciated: https://www.justgiving.com/Stephen-Butler5
Wish me luck!
@SteveButler2210: Watched 21-26 of metal gear alchemist tonight and it was brilliant. Gonna watch Claymore from Monday next week.
So I will let your good self and @Jaz007 pick an anime movie for me to purchase if that's ok. Is death note an anime movie or just the real actors version?
@themcnoisy: There are technically two anime movies in addition to the live action movies, but I wouldn't recommend getting them the anime movies are just shortened versions of the actual anime.
For the movie to purchase. Porco Rosso is one of my favorite, if not my favorite anime movie.

@Jaz007: @themcnoisy it's very different to what you've been watching so far, but I'd have to agree I do love me a bit of Studio Ghibli magic, and Porco Rosso is a cracker. That or Princess Mononoke (my personal favorite SG creation), although some people find that a bit too long / slow.
No one put a bid on porco rosso on ebay. Thanks (currently £3.25 I think) come on ebay!!!
Bought ghost in the shell 2 for £1.86 including postage. Madness.
Metal Gear Alchemist 27-39 bidding with the vendor (wants £4.50 plus £1.50) I've offered £4.50 will I win how exciting!!

@themcnoisy: Never even thought to use ebay for dvds, those prices are mental!
Its getting serious in Full metal Alchemist - and pretty Chilly to boot.
&%%£ SPOILER £%%&
Saleem Wraths Son is a brilliant choice of enemy good going the writers. Unsure how his shadow capability is a mirror of his name Pride but I can wait to find out. Its also nice to see the voice Wrath was talking to way back in the earlier episodes in an oh yeah way.
The overall plan of Father and the bad guys is now on the table. Its awesome.
END OF SPOILER
Thanks for recommending the series its fantastic and the journeys of the Elric brothers have more than taken up my gaming time. Everyone should watch it.
Macross plus the movie on order and fma 40-52 ordered as well.
May get a subscription service as this is getting expensive.
@themcnoisy: Don't forget that we do have a spoiler tag.
@Jaz007: What is it? I have no idea.
An orange is the color orange.
(Spoiler)spoiler tag, just replace ( with [ (/spoiler)

@themcnoisy: ah yeah that was a brilliant reveal, totally unexpected (by me at least)! Things start to seriously amp up from there on out. In fact that's one of my favourite things about FMA - apart from the very occasional slip, the pacing is absolutely flawless throughout, which is impressive for a series spanning over 60 episodes!
And agreed, it is absolutely essential viewing for everyone. It's without a doubt one of my favourite shows of all time! The only reason I wouldn't say it is my favourite is that there are a couple of other things I'd probably put as a similar level. But anyhoo, glad you're enjoying it!
EDIT: but yeah you really should think about a Netflix sub. You must have spent £40+ on FMA by now in under a month, when it's all on Netflix and the first 30 days are free. BUT, at least if you build up a strong anime DVD collection, you are arming yourself with the right tools to steer your girl down the path to great taste as she gets older! I've been slowly indoctrinating my little sister with video games and anime for years now haha

OH. Also, important tip here, from now on don't totally skip to the next episode after the end credits start to roll, as there are bits shown after them that don't actually appear at the start of the next episode, and there are at least a couple which you need to watch otherwise the start of the next episode won't make sense. So when the end credits roll, fast forward them instead of skipping to the next episode!
Hi guys, never noticed that this thread was a thing, glad it is though. If you're British and grew up in the 90's and early 00's then chances were that your experiences of anime were similar to mine. You see back in the day the Sci-Fi channel (when it was spelt properly, not like Syfy) every Thursday at midnight would run double bills of animes, the very concept of these cartoons from Japan that had potential sex and violence in them was mind blowing to my 14 year old self who grew up on Tom and Jerry and Bugs Bunny (now that I think about it, those had just as much violence as the animes lol). So religiously every week I would watch to see what they would show next, I do remember the the first two I ever saw where Devil Man and Goku: Midnight Eye. Some were hit and miss but I remember the first one I really got into was Shadow Skill. I was really into fighters at the time so seeing an anime that was about martial artists in an ancient fantasy land was right up my street (terrible English dubbing though). Of course it wasn't long before the classics came to my attention, such as Akira, Ghost in the Shell and any Studio Ghibli film. What amazed me about some of these animes were how it got under my skin in certain ways, whether it be through it's story or it's imagery. Some of it wasn't for the best though I do remember one that actually made me physical sick, I ended up waking my mother that night after she heard me vomiting into the toilet. I of course didn't tell her that I was watching something that was too young for (think I got a day off school for that as well ) needless to say I haven't watched that film since lol.
I'm not sure if anyone else mentioned it, but definitely try this manga, tate no yuusha no nariagari, it is fairly new and ongoing with chapters released monthly. It is an mmo style plot with psychological themes.
Also Kingdom is nice if your into action, it's got a very good plot.
I'll take the Vita to the grave with me, even if Sony won't.
@adf86: Hahaha a day off school for accidentally watching some dodgy anime. Brilliant! Was it Urotsukidōji by any chance?
@adf86: There was anime on channel 4 on an evening before sci-fi.
My mum and dad made poor choices in the early 90s with our cable provider and got BSB (before sky bought them out) and we literally had a junction box on the Window sill with A-B-C-D-E on it. You physically had to rotate the dial. We only got 4 channels on that as well. One of them was a movie channel but unfortunately no Sci fi.
