I won't spoil the end for you but you'd better have a handkerchief or 2 handy when you watch it.
After a google I've heard of Gundam Origins, which looks good, but I take it I can't stream it legally anywhere?
That first Thunderbolt film is by far my favourite Gundam that I've seen (the AL released stuff). Such a great film. But yeah it's dark.Would also cautiously recommend Gundam Thunderbolt, which is occasionally streaming on Bandai's official Gundam youtube channel, but be aware that the first film is pretty grim.
AL made an agreement with 4oD and a few of their shows have been put up on it. Unfortunately it's not the easiest thing to search for anime on buts theres a few gems on there including a few shows that havent had their physical releases yet like cardcaptor sakuraWhat!? It's on 4onDemand?? I never would have checked there (I suppose I should have checked that streaming thread though, I didn't know we had that!), but that's great!! I'll take the OVA as I love those hour long eps!! Thunderbolt sounds great too, thanks people

Indeed. Including The Dragon Dentist. I highly recommend that one. It's dub-only on All4, but you can watch the sub on Crunchyroll. It's two 45-minute episodes.AL made an agreement with 4oD and a few of their shows have been put up on it.

I'd have to go with Patlabor. Its grounding in a very recognisable and believable near-future setting (more a combination of near-future AND retro now, I suppose) and a wonderful cast of characters set it apart. The world and the characters are just so well realised, it’s really a joy to watch. Eva, while a bit of a different beast in how meta it is, is certainly top-tier as well though. It's a very long time since I watched FMP, I should really watch the damn blu-rays I bought a couple of years now, I remember enjoying it well enough the first time around but I can't say it left a very lasting impression.Just curious, what's the peak of this kind of robot anime in your opinion, @ayase, or rather what's your personal favourite? I can remember you mentioning Bubblegum Crises and Full Metal Panic being worth a watch too, right? I watched Evangelion not too long ago, and really liked it a lot.
Haa, that's brilliant.I have the old US Geneon DVD singles of Samurai Champloo with box (I even have the bandana somewhere!)
Kawajiri is an artist, as far as I'm concerned. I love Ninja Scroll, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust and his Animatrix short film "Program" especially.I just bought Cyber City Oedo 808. I'm not sure I've mentioned it on this forum much but I do actually quite like some of these sorts of old Kawajiri OVAs and the like...
