Been watching FMA:B through Netflix. They have an HD feed too which looks great, though I'm sure not as good as a Blu, but good enough for me :D

For all the hate that Netflix's streaming content gets (from myself as well) they've really stepped up their anime section in the past year or so

Here's a partial list of what's on Netflix (usually the full run too):

School Rumble
Princess Tutu
Eden of the East
Initial D
Baccano
Clannad
Trigun
Naruto
Gunslinger Girl
Kenichi
Full Metal Panic!
Bleach
Highschool of the Dead
Spice and Wolf
Soul Eater
Count of Monte Cristo
Robotech

Adding on to that list:

Ah! My Goddess
Angel Beats
Blue Gender
Elfen Lied
Excel Saga
Fruits Basket
Fullmetal Alchemist (the original)
Full Metal Panic FUMOFFU
Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex (as well as the GitS movie)
Gurren Lagann
Monster
Now and Then, Here and There
Samurai Champloo
The Slayers

Netflix has really become my alternative for streaming anime if either FUNimation, Viz or Crunchyroll doesn't have them available for streaming.

Any comments on Ghost Hunt?



It was an okay one. I didn't think it was scary, then again I don't find any anime to have a horror feel to it.

Isn't the Blu-ray of FLCL just an incredibly obvious upscale and not a true HD conversion?

From what I've heard about the FLCL Blu-Ray release of it, yeah its an obvious upscale but was made in SD so this is probably the best looking FLCL out there yet.I might grab it anyway.

Edit:Heres a blu-ray review of it I found might be worth a look, the picture didn't get a great rating but does mention its probably the best we'll ever get.

I do not doubt, at all, that this Blu-ray release may very well be the best 'FLCL' has looked. It's a dated show, already, and it is transfered from SD sources, upscaled, if you would. I also won't say that this is a "bad" upscale. That seems ridiculous. Rather, I think there are a few other reasons as to why this release earned the score I'm giving it, and I don't think content overload on a single disc is one of those problems, as the three audio tracks (two lossless stereo mixes and a commentary) shouldn't take up that much space compared to a single lossless 5.1 version, and the extras aren't all that lengthy.
FUNimation's 1080p AVC MPEG-4 encode in the show's natural 1.33:1 ratio has as many, if not more, distracting moments than there are ones that seem fine, and the key component is movement. Lines waver like you wouldn't believe on this release. A simple pan can turn the entire picture into a very slight strobe, with lines that can pulse, or move like an animated ocean wave, rippling through an outline, making sure it doesn't stay solid. Some moments even look like the film is seen through extreme heat, like a motorcycle's exhaust or an intense fire, creating a wobble.
But that's not all. Some random thick halos, hefty banding, obvious artifacts (including ones that make skin tones go purple), and extreme stairsteps compound the issue at random. If that weren't enough, there are some random very blurred splotches that make it seem as though some DNR was employed at some point to try to fix a few problem spots. The manga panel sequence in the first episode, as awesome as it is, has an effect similar to a moire, when it's merely a pan on a dot gradient. It's seriously bizarre.
Still, I doubt there has been a home video release of this show that looks any better. Colors can be stunning, a few flares are breathtaking, and there is a nice obvious bump in finer, smaller details. I will not lie and say this release looks amazing. It doesn't. In fact, it's really not pretty at all, but in all fairness, it never was, and it never will be. Sometimes good enough simply is as good as it will get.

http://bluray.highde.../4794/flcl.html

I liked Ghost Hunt, the best way I'd describe it would be like if the X-Files was in like an anime form and more about the super natural.Its slow at times,not that much of an action show thought but more about like part detective/ghost show with lots of the arcs taking from around 2-5 episodes.

Same here (working at 3:30am is fun!). I put myself on the waitlist and then it said the opportunity for me to buy it had elapsed a few minutes later. Confused the heck outta me.

So now I can't add it at all again and I'm getting the runaround with the customer service rep. Oh well. I'm sure by the time my backlog's finished it'll have gone on sale at least one more time.

Oh thank god this is only on DVD. For a second I was going to curse you for making me buy another set I don't need lol.

FU Amazon for dropping these sets so low. Thought I got some great deals this summer, but noooooooooooo.

Having some trouble deciding which one (or two maybe?) to get. I'm still an anime newbie (only have watched Fate/Stay Night to completion and almost finished with Death Note). I've seen various other anime as well but usually just an episode or two or a movie. Like are any of these a must watch/own?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I know I am in the minority, but I prefer the regular FMA. I think brotherhood lacks the emotion and pacing of the regular series (at least the first 10 or so episodes). I would watch the regular series before you watch brotherhood. It is by far one of my favorite series of all time.

Had Gungrave Blu and Witchblade Blu in cart the past few weeks expecting something like this, so was quick to act when the price drops hit. Then added in Welcome to the NHK. Other top picks like the Gunslinger Girl and Spice and Wolf seasons and Claymore (DVD) I already have. Might pick up some others as the month progresses.
