Is it worth it to try and get my hands on Cowboy Bebop? I like the 1st episode.

If you want to waste your time watching lesser shitty anime, then by all means.

well, here's what I liked about Cowboy Bebop:
- Really nice animation and drawings.
- Somewhat interesting and well-developed characters.
- Convincing world and atmosphere.
- Despite that most episodes are unrelated to the main storyline, they're still fun to watch.
- Mad Pierrot ftw

here's what I didn't like:
- Very little story development. Most episodes are just fillers and have no relation to the little story this series has (but like I mentioned, they're still decent).
- The little pieces of the main storyline are unclear and not very original. Ending is disappointing as well.


There is an OVA as well, that takes place somewhere between the last few episodes, but I haven't watched it. But after seeing the ending of the series, personally I'm not that interested in the main story anymore.

Still, it's a good anime, worth watching.

Ok then what do you recommend? I liked the bits I saw of Ghost in the Shell.

Just give it a shot and stop thinking about watching it for days.

Only anime shows I've felt any interest in over the years are Pokemon (original TV series) and various hentai.

so clearly jgrp is a goddamn anime connoisseur. his opinion might as well be law here.

(cowboy bebop is entertaining enough but not deep or life changing. music kicks ass, though. it's only 24 episodes so you might as well try it out)

Fix'd

But seriously, if you wanted to watch some anime and not get your feet wet in some anime episode series, you could try some movies. I'd recommend Satoshi Kon and Makoto Shinkai to watch.

Note that I haven't mentioned Hayao Miyazaki since most of his movies consist of underage girls saving the world, with the occasional shotacon hero thrown in.

Bam.  Sigged.

As far as anime goes, I haven't watched a lot, but a HUGE amount of people seem to think FLCL is good.  It didn't do anything for me, but it's only 6 episodes, so it might be worth watching.  If you're not opposed to gratuitous violence and nudity, the 13 episode Elfen Lied might be alright to look into.  If you want a funny anime with some pretty trippy sci-fi aspects, check out the 14 episode Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.  And if you want to get a feel for THE anime of the 90s, try watching the Rebuild of Evangelion movies.  Two have been made with a planned two more in the works.

I can suggest quite a few titles too, but perhaps this would better be done via PM or in a new thread.

Nice animes:
One Piece (pretty obvious)
Karas
Afro Samurai

Question: Any way to watch the anime Fairy Tail for free?

I have a bit of a problem :S I have Win7, a cracked version, and I need a registration crack for it. The reason is after 3 days my current registration will expire, leaving my pc pretty much fucked. I have stuff backed up so thats not a problem. What you got for me SF?

BUY original win7 like I did.


Why cracked version? Use trial version + infinite rearm.

EDIT: At least it's kinda legal.

Torrent/burn another cracked version of win7. I don't believe in paying microsoft for software directly. Or if you're unsure, ask any Asian friends of yours what to do. They'll know.

There's a thing called "WAT remover", which completely removes the activation part of Windows. You could try that.

Also, I heard you can somehow extend your trial for another few months without the use of any 3rd party programs.
Haven't tried it myself: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-7/extend-the-windows-7-trial-from-30-to-120-days/
