Beginner's Guide to Anime Part 3

If you're a beginner to the world of anime or still on the fence about it (even after reading part 1 and part 2 of my previous articles) then you've come to the right place! All it takes is one remarkable show to get sucked into the amazing world of anime! So whether you like your shows soft hearted or serious, funny or full of action, one of the five shows below is sure to get you hooked. Inuyasha & Inuyasha The Final Act Inuyasha is one of the mainstays of the anime world. The story revolves around half demon Inuyasha and his quest to collect the shards of a sacred jewel shattered by Japanese high school student Kagome. Watching the magical misadventures of these two as they fight demons alongside allies like Shippo the fox boy, Kirara the nekomata (cat-like creature with magical powers), and Miroku the monk is totally addictive. Between the original series, Inuyasha The Final Act , and four movies, this series has everything a beginner to anime could ask for. Your Lie In April If you want to watch an anime that will make you cry it's this one. Telling the story of a piano prodigy who stops playing after the death of his mother, Your Lie in April evolves into a heartwarming tale of music, love, and what it truly means to be happy. Though it does send you on an emotional roller coaster, this anime is uplifting and universally lauded for its incredible storyline. Crayon Shin-Chan If you want to kick back and laugh, Crayon Shin-Chan (commonly referred to as simply Shin-Chan) is the right anime for you. Telling the story of a young and often quite profane little boy, this definitely isn't an intellectual anime. This anime is filled with crude moments and perverted jokes but it's cult status as an incredibly popular anime is well deserved. It is hands-down one of the funniest anime I've ever seen (perhaps only exceeded by Baka and Test ) and 100% worth checking out if you could use a laugh. 
 Samurai Jack If you've watched Cartoon Network sometime over the last two decades there is no way that you've never heard of this show. Recently revived for one final season that was met with incredible reviews, this show tells the story of a Samurai flung into the future by the evil demon Aku. Though this show's status as an anime or cartoon is often disputed by hardcore fans, the quality of this series is not. Watching as Samurai Jack battles evil and tries to return to the past to defeat Aku is nothing short of an incredible journey. Space Dandy Though the previous four entries on this list are all widely regarded anime, Space Dandy is considerably more under the radar. Telling the story of Boobies restaurant regular Dandy, his a-dorkable robot QT, and alien cat Meow, this space "soap opera" follows the crew as the they explore the weirdness of infinite space together. The series is episodic and the focus of an episode can be anything from an eternal time loop to an interstellar space race. Some episodes are better than others but the colorful storytelling and complex richness of Space Dandy makes it a great choice. If you loved (or hated) the anime on this list sound off in the comments section below! Welcome to the world of anime!

New ‘Space Dandy’ Japanese DVD/BD Anime Spots Go International

Bandai Visual has put together a pair of new commercial spots to promote their release of the  Space Dandy  series on DVD and Blu-ray in Japan and though they’re short, they’re sweet. The first one in particular is pretty amusing as it goes with the classic angst filled view of a French presentation, completely with French dialogue, that just gives the whole thing a very different feeling. With a dub airing at the same time as the original version in Japan, the US getting both versions made available and word of the home video release coming in late 2014 at least through Anime Limited in the UK, Bandai Visual Japan is handling their home video release in a pretty good way for those that want it quickly, spare no expense. The show is slotted to begin its DVD and Blu-ray release on April 25th and they’ve confirmed that it will have both dubs and subs on it. The layout is a bit different though when it comes to pricing: Read More... //www.fandompost.com/2014/06/21/new-space-dandy-japanese-dvdbd-anime-spots-go-international/
