Anime the way I remember it!
on 30 September 2014
I used to watch a lot of anime. Back when it was a little less 'mainstream' (nothing wrong with mainstream, don't get me wrong!), only the wildest and most spectacular stuff got translated, so I was introduced to Japanese animation by the likes of AKIRA, Urotsukidoji and Ghost in the Shell, and eventually enjoyed stuff like The Guyver, Evangelion and Dirty Pair Flash.
Unfortunately the more stuff came out, the harder it became to find anime to my tastes. These days there tends to be a lot of high school 'ecchi' (risque) and teen-focused stuff dominating the medium. This is fine, but not for me. So my anime days (aside from the occasional Miyazaki movie) were pretty much done.
Until I saw Black Lagoon.
The wit, violence and action which got me into anime in the first place are all here and as strong as ever!
Highly recommended to anime veterans, and newcomers too!
