wow not heard of any of those speedy will have to look into them,
I have tried slayers, Gundam, Those that hunt elves as well but they did not really hook me a series I am currently trying to watch is Vandread which seem ok.
I am not so much of a fan of the really cheesy stuff hence I am totally hooked on Cowboy bebop at the moment, as i have only just discovered it :)

*ready for flack* i prefer dubbed really personally I have found the voice acting very good in the dubbed editions, though the ability to pick between the formats (dubbed or subbed) on dvds is quite funky :)

subbed!!!! Dubs usually completely bastardise the experience. I literally cringed at the Love Hina dubs, the accents are horrid :D

Having had the subs running sometimes while wathcing some of them than I realise what your saying SPeedY as there is some variation, but I still think in series like GITS: Stand Alone Complex watching with it subbed makes it alot harder to follow, as there are complex dialogues and plots, combined with alot of action.

You know it! :p

I suppose it does depend, just in my experience I've always watched them in Japanese/Subbed (as they were intended so to speak) first before even listening to the dub track, so it seems strange and sometimes ... f-ing horrid :D

btw, if you don't like cheesy stuff, I think from my list you're best off starting with .hack//SIGN, the plot is awesome and there's definitely no cheese (unlike Love Hina which is uber cheese :D)

Play.com have Vol1 and 2 for £14.99 each including delivery. Vol1, Vol2 and there's more info at http://www.dothack.com/ :)

Cool will have to look it them I dont mind a bit of cheese Ranma 1/2 is crawling with it, but some of them dunno I they are just lost on me. Glad they are availble on play its the only one I have really found to sell region 1, though I am gutted as they appear to be out of Escoflowne the movie ultimate editions :'( and I can't remember if amazon.com will ship dvds to the UK.

the manga dubbed version of Ghost in the Shell is ok - the voice acting is pretty bland, but that blandness works for the film, aiding in the idea of the cybernetic indifference, etc etc. BUT, in my most humble opinion, I would stick with subtitles anyday, the original voice acting tends to be pretty sexy (and if the blandness was supposed to be there, it will be in the original anyway)
