    Default In search for classics...

    Oi.

    This past holiday season, I've bought loads of anime dvds. As I've strolled through mountains of titles, I came across several interesting titles that where classics, but I finally bought two discs that seemed to appeal to me. By then I didn't know why.

    The two discs were compilations of several titles. I bought them because each had titles that seemed very good watch. I didn't really care what was the other titles on the dvds. I checked them out after I bought them. Well, thats how I buy dvds, really.

    On one dvd was Princess Mononoke. On the other was Castle of Cagliostro. Like I said earlier, it seemed to appeal to me. I know Princess Mononoke was a major classic, but later, when I checked the other titles, I was really shocked. I just bought a compilation of Miyazaki classics. Animes which inspired many mangakas and western animators.

    The titles, to name a few, where Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Winds, and Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro. Shocking, all those in two dvds...

    Anyway I am currently searching the market for other classics, not only Miyazaki's works, but others as well. I'd like to ask you guys for what classic title you know, and who the creator is.

    Im currently looking for the works of the creator of Paprika, and the works of Osamu Tezuka.

    Thanks for your help.

    P.S. I know its shameful, but I bought them using clandestine channels. You, of course, know what I mean.

    We just watched My Neighbor Totoro again this weekend -- it was just the thing, at the end of a long day. Another Miyazaki, that. It was originally in theaters as a double-feature with another title from the same studio but different director, Grave of the Fireflies. Also a classic, but ... um, let's just say it's not one to watch if you're feeling mentally fragile.

    Another classic: Project A-ko, I forget the creator. Hysterically funny -- and the best joke's at the end, when you realize who A-ko's parents are.

    Other classics: Ghost in the Shell (original movie), Akira, Spirited Away.
    Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.

    Yep, yep. My Neighbor Totoro was also in one of the dvds I bought. Others were Kiki's Delivery Service, Whisper of the Heart, Porco Rosso, Ponyo on a Cliff, Panda! Go Panda!, Grave of the Fireflies, and several others.

    Thanks for the pointers. I've watched GitS before, but I'd like to have a copy. I've also watched Grave of the Fireflies some years ago... such a sad movie. However, I haven't seen Project A-Ko, so I'll be hunting that

    *blink* You bought the Studio Ghibli collection, didn't you? No official compilation of all those works above exists... it's actually a very well-branded pirated compilation that happens to deceive many people into thinking it's legit.

    In any case, you might want to take a look at the voting for the Top 10 Anime and Manga of all time at the Japan Media Arts Festival a couple of years back.

    @dizzcity: Don't use that term... I prefer to refer to it as clandestine

    Checked out the link... I actually have most of them, and I didn't know they were at the top 10! O_O
