He-Man isn't anime.

Howl's Moving Castle is. It's quite good as anime goes. All the Miyazaki movies are.


I don't really think that He-Man can be considered anime. I'm 50+ and enjoy a lot of animation and anime.


Yup. My father in law is one of our Netflix Friends - and his queue is just a subset of ours or things we have already rented. Kind of funny to see him renting Firefly or Veronica Mars. But, for the first 3 months of his Netflix membership, his queue was just The West Wing, one season after another.

We had to wave him off though when he added Deadwood to his queue. That c%^#s$%&#r would not have been a hit in his household.


My dad is so cute.

His queue is full of stuff like old Clint Eastwood movies. The same ones he's watched for 30 years on Sunday afternoon television or whatever. He's stuck in a time warp.


I don't care for Miyazaki or Akira. I liked both Ghost in the Shells, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, Steamboy, The Hobbit, AniMatrix, Ninja Scroll, Aeon Flux (Peter Chung), Dark Fury, and Cowboy Bebop: The Movie. I am not into most anime films or shows. Batman: The Animated Series is pretty good. Heavy Metal also has some parts I like. Most animes are lacking in emotional depth. They have about the same significance as a video game.


I'm 50 years old and have been watching anime since Speed Racer and Astro Boy. My 30 year old son also watches anime, but thinks I'm nuts because I watch Naruto. Anime is why I signed up for Netflix 2-1/2 years ago.


none of my parents are on yet but, they rent movies from blockbuster like 3 times a week.

I tell them all the time they could save so much money by going online.


I'd just be nervous is if the folks were getting the fetish anime titles.

I have my son on my Friends list, and he has the highest "similarity" factor of all my Friends. I watched some Cowboy Bebop on his recommendation, and found it to resemble Firefly thematically. He sometimes takes my recommendations for old classics.

But he like Tarantino and I don't, so there.
