Well, I do like the animation but the only problems I have is sometimes it is hard to tell (depending on the series and the artist) who is male and who's female. (Freeza from DBZ is one example. Along with a couple of others I can't think of right now.)

Other than the animation it's mainly the story. I think the Japanese are very good at telling stories, and they are somewhat better at story telling then Westerns are. Don't get me wrong, there is a countless number of American movies and TV shows that I like. But the Japanese always seem good at crafting a very well thought out story. That's one thing that I like about them.

I ended up buying 3 movies of the horror genre and Astro Boy. The clerk gave me a perplexed look. I'm sure he originally assumed I was buying it for someone else but then I pulled out my Astro Boy wallet... :astro:

:lol:

When the next movie comes (I like to be positive! :tezuka: ), if your wallet is worn out, you'll have your tatoo... :D

In fact it's always the customers who start laughing and make comments when one of their own selection is a family feature. I keep wondering why they do that, I mean many of the best movies of all time are family features!

Interesting that some customers would do that! I would never have thought so, I'm more the kind of person to shut up and do as if there is nothing strange even if I do feel a little embarrassed inside; I don't feel that way anymore though.

I'm too busy trying to stay positive about the Pluto movie coming out to think about that other weird Americanization. :p

By the way, its studio is still doing quite well:

I was 4 years old in 1982 when it appeared on the ABC in Australia and was hooked. I remember 'singing' the opening title where the only words I got right were 'astroboy, astroboy, he err rarr roo wung giggi garrrrrrr'.


Sortof like when drunk people try and sing Auld Lang Syne on New Years Eve. I seriously had to look up the lyrics for that as every shindig Ive ever been to has had the singing of it strangely comparable to the way I used to sing Astroboy.......

Oh yeah, the 'Neverending Story' title song was another one I used to nail....


'Neverending store - horey......nya nya nya nya nya nya nya nya nya'

Anyway, what was the topic of this discussion again?

I'm on it! Next short term goal! It will go great with my " I'd rather be watching Astro Boy" novelty plate!

:lol:
That's was pretty much the same for me, I was in kindergarden and since they were half days when I got home Astro Boy was on. (Before 'The Little Prince" but sadly no one remembers that show.) :( Anyway, I didn't speak alot of english at that point either, so I pretty much sounded the way you described singing the Astro theme song.

Oh yes, I would say a Pluto movie counts! :D Thanks for the hope! :hyo:

Novacain, you never cease to surprise me! :lol:

As for the Astro Boy theme song, I remember I could hear the words well in the opening song, but could barey understand anything in the ending one. :eek: It's always difficult to understand when sung by a chorus, even if it was a good one.
