AQUA INTEGRAL EPISODE PROJECT L [i.e. Best episodes of Aqua Teen Hunger Force ellipses For All Time] (50-41)


Their names were: Shake zula, the mic rula, the old schoola. If you wanted a trip, he’d bring it to ya. Frylock he was on top, rocked you like a cop. Meatwad was up next with his knock-knock. Meatwad, got the money see? Meatwad, got the honeys see? Drove in his car, lived like a star, ice on my toes and my fingers and I’m a Taurus. Cuz they were the Aqua Teens. They made the homies say ho and the girlies wanna scream.

ANIME TOP TEN (LIST #1) - #6: Vision of Escaflowne (1996)


Director(s): Kazuki Akane
Screenplay: Shoji Kawamori
Music: Yoko Kanno
Everything comes together so well in Vision of Escaflowne. First of all, there's a great and wonderous new world created on Gaia, a mix of midieval, Renaissance, and steampunk motifs. You really get a good feel for the world and its people (and beast-people). It's a world whose secrets unravel as the story moves. I really like the Guymelefs, the giant combat armors that are like magic machines, and the combat and lore. Themes of fate, love, and loss shine a light on the story and characters. Yoko Kanno's soundtrack is gorgeous, providing sweeping, powerful context to the actions on screen. It really helps to lift the series above similarly well-crafted works into an exciting epic journey.


It's been years since I began writing for Otaku Revolution, and some of you regular readers (all two of you) may still be in the dark as to what taste in anime I have. So, though it's an often-changing element of my anime fandom, I've decided to make a list of my favorite anime, ranking them for all to see, and justifying my choices.


When people make top ten lists of their favorite anime, they tend to make the same mistake. That is, they group together TV series, OVAs, and movies. A TV series and a movie are two different beasts. You wouldn't lump together live-action TV series with live-action movies, would you? Would you even lump together American or other Western animated productions together, TV shows with movies? Of course not. But for anime, somehow this tends to be the way we do things. Well, I, for one, refuse.


Audio: English: My Favorite English VAs in Anime


Audio: English
With the Audio:English series, PenguinTruth takes a critical look at the English
dubs which grace some of anime's most defining series in North America.


As somebody with a critical eye on anime English dubs, I'm often at odds with a reputation for "hating" dubs and dub voice actors. But the truth is, there are plenty of very talented voice actors working in English dubs of anime. I'm fond of quite a few of them and have definite favorites. I've even been able to rank them in their own "tiers". But let's put tier rankings aside, because this is just a list of the dub VAs I like the most. I've also listed the roles I like them in the most.

Top 15 Dragon Ball/Z/GT Moments (EDITED)

So, yeah, I thought I would write about my favorite (animated) parts of the Dragon Ball franchise. It took a while to gather (and in some case, make) clips to go with these entries. There are a lot of good moments in the franchise, even though the overall quality varies, and I'm sure there are plenty of good bits I've overlooked. If you feel I've missed good ones, please do comment and explain why.
