The correct answer to "what is Ghost in the Shell about?" is "Cops in the future track down a hacker. Also, there's tits." Fatty Sideburns would do well to learn this.
"In the future, existentialist cyborg cops try to track down a hacker, as told by an autistic nationalist who loves guns and tits."

Was that TV's Frank?
I'd love to hear what Leno's 60+ audience thinks of this new direction.
Anyone know any of them?
Did they ever say what bobble breast figures are called?

If it was redubbed with Andy and Conan supplying lines, I would totally watch anime.
Ghost Stories is probably the closest you'll get.
Oh come on ROUS, you make it sound like you were never part of our college Anime club. Like you never dragged me to Anime club in the first place! You know you loved Evangelion, Trigun, Cowboy Bebop and the first season of the Ghost in the Shell series. Don't try to deny it. You watched anime, you mainly stuck to the good anime though, none of the weird "teenage girls who transform and are naked all the time" stuff.
Rodents of Unusual Size
Yes, but then I discovered that most of the people we were hanging out with were nuts, and every subsequent anime fan I met proceeded to be even more insane than the last.
so you turn your back on the entire genre? (not that "genre" is the right word here as there are genres inside of anime)
What's next? Are you going to say that you hate Firefly and Lost if the new "V: The Series" sucks? Are you going to say that you hate all versions of Dune just because the more recent books aren't as good?
How can a fan base decide whether or not you like something. There are rednecks out there that like sci-fi, there's Democrats that voted down gay marriage that love the works of Orson Scott Card, is that reason enough to say that all Science Fiction is to be completely ignored? True, I don't like any Card past the less heavy Ender books, but that doesn't mean that I turn my back on the entire genre. I just move on to Scalzi and Gaiman(though of course Gaiman hasn't actually written any sci-fi really)
Wow, I didn't know I felt so strongly about this. Basically I think that there's some anime that can be seen as good. There's anime that isn't weird, or it's weird for all the right reasons. Hell, you wrote a review saying how much you loved "Paprika" within the past year. That's Anime ROUS. You watch anime. You may not watch a ton of series and you may not watch it obsessively, but you watch anime. Just be a snob about it and say that you don't watch bad anime. I love being an anime snob. I can say "Oh, I don't Watch anything made past 2005!" and come off as a jerk and no one seems to care.
ahem. I apologize for saying that Democrats are against gay marriage. I'm sure there are some, but it is a much more Republican point of view.
Sorry, I got carried away.
Rodents of Unusual Size
Yeah, sorry for changing my opinion since ten years ago. You're right, I should totally not turn my back on anime wait what.
You know, if anything makes me never want to see anime again, it's the fans I have met that are total freaks AND THIS FORUM.
I have a wallet!

Gad Guard was a pretty good series, although its quality had little to do with Arashi's skirt size.
Boy's in bikinis
Girls in computers
Oddly, the first and only good anime is about the difficulties of feeding fish.
Wow, NBC has already scrubbed their website of Coco.
