  1. As far as Gateways are concerned, start with Ghibli, then do a Shinkai film or two, before going into other anime. I find Ghibli tends to focus on bog themes with war vs pacifism, environmental custodialship, and the like in general whereas Shinkai delves more into the emotional exploration and development instead (like grief, love, longing, etc). If someone is able to enjoy and identify with both, chances are good you can successfully introduce them to other anime as well. My go to Shinkai films for newbies are Children Who Chase Lost Voices and Your Name.
  2. I considered that actually when the Pluto flyby happened and we saw that Pluto had an atmosphere. That said, I think we should focus on getting established on Mars first before we dream too far ahead. Right now all eggs are in the Blue Planet's basket and a single planetwide extinction event will end us all. One colony at a time
  3. I think I heard the rest of the eight chapter series has been fully greenlighted by Netflix so I'm super excited for it to be coming out! Especially episode 45 and 46. I actually bought the series for that.
  4. Cybersix, a true classic. I was so glad for the rerelease. It was rather well written. The Dragon Prince really is very well animated (reminds me of anime) and has a great story too. I actually enjoy The Dragon Prince far more than Avatar.
  5. Haha, my grandfather had a similar story. Once we were out by the mill and the river place and since we were in the area were going to drop by great grandma's house. Grandpa was with us and while great grandma was getting ready for visitors (she was napping when we arrived) grandpa told us all about the first day they set foot in the house. It had just been built on the farm and his parents were going room to room to inspect but he stood there in the bathroom door for a good 15 minutes just thinking about how he was never again going to have to walk outside in the cold freezing air to use the
  6. For Mecha, I'd suggest Escaflowne (the series...the movie can be a bit confusing for a beginner), the Gundam series (I'd suggest starting with Gundam Wing. It's easy to enjoy and is easily found), and Knights of Sidonia. Action..... Attack on Titan (gorey, you are warned), Yu Yu Hakusho (a classic. Love me some Kurama and Kuwabara ^_^)...Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Not requested but I'm going to toss out there Log Horizon. It's a isekai (trapped in other world) and has a good bit of everything from drama and politics to fighting and strategy, a bit of
  7. I'm old enough that I like to call my sister Old Lady Shaffer (I call myself old lady too and I'm two years her junior!). Started long ago....hard to remember the first. I had to get up on Saturday mornings at 6ish to watch it. We didn't have any good channels on my parents cable tv back then. My oldest anime I've collected is definitely Matsumoto works from the 70s. Real classics.
  8. I think we have a lot of lurkers these days and less people talking. You see a lot of logins of people dropping in to check posts, but never responding. A big part is time. People have less time and money due to governments shutting down the economy (both nationals and locals). You'd think that'd make more time, but without income you can't afford anime, anxiety and depression rates trend upwards, which compounds the lack of interest in activities that used to interest a person. It's a downward spiral. As soon as this nonsense is over I think we will slowly see an uptick in traffic and actual
  9. I'd miss indoor plumbing. That's always ranked at the top of my list. Fun things though? Not sure. I'm kind of woods crafty, and my work life leaves no room for enjoyment in life anymore... probably scuba diving. I'm not much of a breathhold diver and it is one of the few things I still get to enjoy from time to time.
  10. I would suggest the Crest of the Stars series. Crest of the Stars has some battles but a large focus is the developing relationship between the two leads planetside. Banner of the Stars however is pretty much all battles. It is definitely a series worth looking into.
  11. @Ohiotaku I thought it was too! I guess kids are growing up faster than we did lol... I'll add in Moribito (a classic), Galaxy Railways (more action oriented, I initially excluded it because it does have death in it), Solty Rei (good scifi), and Escaflowne.
  12. Yes. There are 2 leads, the Cardcaptors, though it focuses primarily on Sakura.
  13. I think the one you are looking for is The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Beautiful movie which a touch of tragedy in it. @Slade1991
  14. Kaze no Stigma (the author died so not happening), Yona of the Dawn, Engaged to the Unidentified, Snow White with the Red Hair, Otome Yokai Zakura…
  15. Cardcaptors, Petite Princess Yucie (your son may not enjoy that one quite as much but it has some good humor), Reboot (a classic Mainframe), Code Lyoko (french anime but very well crafted storyline), all come to mind.
