Hi Folks, I don't know how all the 'old movie' talk resparked my fledging interest in anime ... but it did. After finding DVD copies of 'Plan 9 from Outer Space' and 'Attack of the Killer Tomatoes' for my sister ... I started looking at the anime offerings again. I have Princess Mononoke (Stunning), Spirited Away (Simply Outstanding), Kiki's Delivery Service (not up with the 1st two - but still pretty good fun), and Castle in the Sky (which I don't really care for very much). I was thinking along the lines of Cowboy Bebop - the Movie, Ghost in the Shell, and maybe Akira. (Grave of the Fireflies sounded a little too depressing.) Decent choices as a next step? Or is there something better I should be considering? Evangelion? (Which the heck one?) Ninja Scroll? ??? <bonus question> Are these Amazon 'zShop' things for real? Offering a 7 disc Cowboy Bebop set for $35?? (The 'normal' Amazon link is 6 discs for $99 vs retail of $180.) </bonus> Thanks! RonL.
