Alternate title for this post: Can I get a little help?
As part of my growth as a geek I try to take on new challenges. For example, A few months ago, I ventured into the Monster Movie genre by watching the original American version of Godzilla. (My review is here: Godzilla King of the Monsters.) Now I am trying to introduce myself to Anime. While most genres have prevalent tent poles to help guide newcomers, I have always had trouble finding an entry point for Japanese Animation. I know it is weird because saying Anime is pretty much like someone saying they want to get into American cartoons. There are so many different kinds, from old school like the Disney and Hanna-Barbera cartoons, to action cartoons, like G.I. Joe and Transformers, to comedy cartoons like the Simpsons and South Park. So in order to be more specific, I was looking to get started with Sci-Fi Anime.
So, like the basic geek I am…I went to Netflix and searched for Anime/SciFi/Movies. This is a good chunk of what popped up. There are a dozen titles there and I have no clue where to start. I am not sure if some of them require previous viewing of a TV series or other movies to make sense. So, if anyone happens to know these movies and would like to vote on the good ones to start with, then please feel free to do so. You can vote for as many as you like. Or, in the comments section, you can right in suggestions of movies I should try to find. Between Hulu, Netflix, Crackle and other streaming apps, I feel I should be able to track down almost anything at this point. I appreciate everyone’s help and look forward to your suggestions.
