Just wait till you get to the marijuana episode. And the one with the mine...I'm still not over the one with the mine.
Yeah the weed episode's great, but I remember the visuals as something more similar to an acid trip than a marijuana high. Oh well, simulating a pot high is pretty boring, especially if you're watching it while high.
The Japanese don't really "get" how drugs work. It's almost cute. It was way closer to an acid trip than anything else, yeah.
A friend of mine who was teaching in Japan told me that Psilocybin mushrooms are really easy to get and basically legal and everything else, even weed, is pretty tricky. That could explain it.
Japan doesn't get smuggling straight from the source and their punishments for smuggling, use, and possession are even more insane and draconian than ours.

I started this show but never finished it; I still feel bad because a customer of mine would come in the shop I worked at and lent me cool stuff like graphic novels and anime. He was sort of my sole remaining connection to anything Otaku at the time. Anyway I moved and totally forgot to give him back his Samurai Champoloo DVDs before I left. They were just DVDRs but I still feel bad and I have no way of contacting him. Anyway, if you're reading this, guy, sorry 'bout that.
Personally I liked Cowboy Bebop and Space Dandy a little more, but I loved the mix of hip hop and samurai culture. It was like a fun and colorful Wu Tang.

This was the last decent anime show I've seen. Have there been ones since? I haven't really kept up with it because it's all a bunch of shit from what I've gathered.
If you liked SC then you'll like Space Dandy. It's the same show but in outer space, which sounds like Cowboy Bebop on paper, but it's different.
Other than that, I don't really know. I really did enjoy Attack on Titan; even though it falls into the same navel gazing shit like Evangelion (and an even bigger MacGuffin) did it's still very pretty to look at
For the this season, One-Punch Man, Concrete Revolutio, and the current Gundam (Iron Blooded Orphans) are good.

Yeah, the problem with anime is that there are like 80 new shows a year, and maybe five of them are any good. That's not a bad number (US network TV is largely the same) but it does make it really hard to pick out the decent stuff when there's a mountain of shit to sift through.
Anyway, yeah, watch Space Dandy. But give it a few episodes, because it takes a little while before you realize what the producers are really up to.
You'd think we'd have it pretty good in the US then; I'm sure the amount of low rated or cancelled bullshit never goes overseas (I'm just assuming that Japan and England have some channel like our PBS that showcases content from another part of the globe) so ostensibly you're left with the good stuff, or the popular stuff, but usually the good and popular stuff. And that's how Cartoon Network got Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo in the first place. But the way their lineup is now, you'd think there wasn't any good anime at all (except for One Piece but that show's old as dirt.)
Nerd Info: Guin Saga is actually based on a series of fantasy novels. The longest series of novels by one author in the history of mankind. The author published 152 Guin novels, and the nain story still hadn't concluded when she died.
Given her level of dedication, she probably wrote four additional novels between her death and cremation.
As for the anime, it's pretty boring. There's a guy in a leopard mask who looks like King from Tekken and he goes on quests and stuff. It's only like 20 episodes so guessing they didn't adapt the whole thing.

Oh yeah, I agree. The names and synopses from Netflix are enough for me. Still, I wish I had just one good show to remind me of when I would rent series 2 episodes at a time from the video store and dub them with my brothers.
Cool! Don't think I knew that. So much talent on this little restaurant at the end of the universe.
Can we ask what you've worked on?
Even if you normally watch dubs, you have to watch the Baseball episode in the original Japanese, (presumably with subs).
Five for a fun series.
Hmm, without doxxing myself too much? Hard... Lots of big sfx tent poles going back to the mid 90s, and a lot of cg-character driven movies that were terrible but made a lot of money 😊
oops, that was meant as a reply to iz above
Didn't you work on Delgo, or was that someone else?
Cool! I was working on a project that unfortunately never got off the ground, mostly because the people I was working with were constantly high on the drug the show was about (I don't condone drug use, but cocaine, beer and adderall are about all that's good for actual writing) and anyway there were some "animated" sequences written throughout; my "boss" basically wanted it to be another Xavier but mostly live action. So I messed around creating various CGI models that never got used. It was fun, even though nobody will ever see them..
Cartoons = dumbed down infant picture books. Grow the fuck up.
Movies = waste of money explosions fests you pay too much money for.
Nothing matters except work and money.
I did work on Garfield.
and...Garfield 2: A Tail of Two Kitties.
kill me now
someday, someday i'll remember that reply button
I know you gotta make a living, but still...
oh, I've worked an some Oscar-winners too (for Visual Effects), even held our collective Oscar in my hands a couple of times, so that makes up for the Garfields and...others that pay the bills, as you say.
I turned out watching Tale of Two Kitties one day when I was stuck in a hotel.. the CGI animation is very impressive and there's actually some pretty funny stuff in there! I mean, it is what it is, but it was more entertaining than the movie adaptation of Tale of Two Cities.
Billy Connolly and Bill Murray are always better when you are high

This was such a wonderful series, I finally got around to watching it a few months ago. So many songs and visuals with emotion...
