Samurai 7 Anime Preview!!!

I'm not one to preview anime here at toybot studios. This is why when Danny Choo posted a link to check out "Samurai 7", I was like "meh", another Anime from the Tokyo Anime Festival. However, Danny's description did catch my eye: "just imagine a samurai theme with mechas and sengoku style battleships in the sky - well you need not imagine because you can get yourself along to the official Samurai 7 page and have a look yourself" So I did and OMG, what an impressive trailer it is indeed!! Think of it as a cross between Gundam, Ninja Scroll and Ghost in the Shell. Very groovesome indeed. Now if they can only keep the action high and the talking and existentialism (which all Japanese Anime are known for), then we will have a real winner here. Looking forward to it's release.

You guys are free to debate the greatness of "Akira" or the "Gundam" series, "Macross", "Cowboy Bebop", "Trigun", "Evangelion" or any others. I welcome your feedback. These top four, however, are the ones that stand out in my mind as some of the very best Anime ever produced:

The Original Ghost in the Shell

Ninja Scroll

Appleseed the Movie

Final Fantasy Advent Children
