Ok lets try something new, i'll start off and you guys post in a similar fashion, and be sure to include a couple of pictures just to get the reader going, also be sure to clariy if it's an ova, movie, or series! If this works then we'll be moving on to bigger and better things. My Recommendation: Armitage III: Poly-Matrix (Movie) Synopsis: "In 2046, the overpopulation of Earth has led to the colonization of Mars—with the aid of the "first type" androids, men were able to begin terraforming the unfriendly environment of Mars and build the city Saint Lowell. Seventy years after the start of colonization, the city is completed and inhabited by great numbers of people and "Second type" robots, much improved versions of the "First types". Ross Syllibus, a middle-aged policeman from Chicago, flies to Saint Lowell using a space shuttle. Syllibus asked to be transferred to the Martian Police Department to escape from his past and haunting memories of his previous partner being killed by a robot. At the Saint Lowell's space port he is to meet his new partner—a young woman named Naomi Armitage. On the same shuttle as Syllibus travels Kelly McCannon—"the last country singer in the Universe". As the shuttle nears the terminal, a mysterious man is seen entering the cargo section; soon after this, the intruder is noticed and the alarms go off. Later, as Ross gets off the shuttle, he witnesses a disturbing scene at the airport. He bumps into the mysterious man with a big suitcase and two guards. Soon after that, Armitage orders the men to stop and get their hands up. Puzzled, Ross notices a few drops of blood spilling from the mysterious man's suitcase. The two robot guards are killed by Armitage and the mysterious man is wounded, but flees. However, he leaves his suitcase behind—inside of which is the dead body of Kelly McCannon. To everybody's surprise and horror, McCannon turns out to be a robot: a new, never-seen-before "Third type" android that is superficially identical to humans." ~Wiki Why I like it: This movie pretty much set the standard for cyber punk animes. It's a little like bladerunner which I've never watched but have always heard about so if you scene it then I guess you know where im going with this. It's one of the few animes that has mech fighting scenes outside of the gundam/robotech universe which is a nice fresh breath of air. It's got a legitimate love story that isnt all sappy and dull like most animes tend to draw them out. Why you should watch it: If you like blood and big explosions then this is the anime for you! It's alot like the ghost in the shell series but it's not overly dry in the movie compared to the OVA which doesnt have big hollywood voice overs but it does have a linear story line that isnt too hard to follow and the music really sets the vibe with it's upbeat fast tempo. There are a few nude scenes which new animes tend to avoid now a days so it does feel directed towards a more mature audience.
