The villian was some sort of golden metal man, and he seemed invincible.

It had a somewhat defeated, depressing theme to it, and I seem to remember something about Blue being in the title.

Sorry if this is really vague, any help would be great.
Can you give us more detail?
Each detail you give are pretty vague.

From the description, it sounds somewhat like Genocyber.
Was it gory and violent? Were they split into episodes on a disk?
Who was the protagonist? What did he/she look like, what kind of powers, etc?

Sorry about the vagueness (again), I feel if I could remember alot more I'd probably be able to find it myself, thus why I came here. Also sorry for putting it in the wrong forum, it was late and I guess I didn't look well enough.

Anyway, I do remember one of the headhunter's marks was still able to talk after he was decapitated. The main character road around on a hover style bike, can't remember what he looked like.

I seem to remember both twins having long, flowing, wavy hair. One of them possibly had aqua hair, and the main character had some sort of day dream sequence of her at the bottom of the sea.

I think the villain was made up of metal rings, as if he wasn't a whole shape and he threw golden boomerang-esque weapons.

It was definitely a one of movie, not a series...and this was back in 1999. So the 8 years are probably adding to the vagueness.

now my turn

okay there's this anime involving mecha, it could be something between 1980-1995 not sure lol i used to watch as kid..

but the character can control the mecha with the movement of his body. It's Similar to Wataru but instead of standing on a dragon and holding onto the horns, this character stands on a 6 point star (Star of david) and does a motion with his hand (palm against side of fist) and "pulls" out a bright yellow light resembling a sword..



here's the pic of a card of it..

Spoiler for CARD OF ANIME =):

That's Madou King Granzort.
ANN's title is wrong btw. It's spelled Madou-oh, but read Madou-King.

It aired in between Wataru and Wataru 2, with the same animation staff. That's why it resembled Wataru.
(Even the same director and character designer)

Does anybody know the name of an anime that is like .Hack? However this anime portrays 3 people who are champion characters together in a party.

I think the main characters were high school classmates and they were very close. They would log into a world with characters that are champions.


Heh, vague description I know... but ive only seen one episode! Any help would be appreciated.

There's also the .hack//Liminality that came with the games, but those are all .hack series rather than "like .hack".

If you've at least seen one episode, when you say "champions", do you mean like a warrior class? Do you mean like the champions of justice? Was there an evil villian or bad guy of the day?

Byousoku 5 Centimeter

ADD] You can read the 13-page thread here. It's quite popular due to the fame of the director.

Cheers.

Classes such as... Warrior/Mage.. etc. I believe the anime is similar to .Hack, however, it is not a sequel, or part of the franchise that is .hack. With just having seen one episode, I cant really tell whether they where heroes of Justice, or just over-powered protagonists... but yea, hope that helped.^_^

There are few other online game related anime other than .hack...
Master of Epic The Animation Age, and RAGNAROK THE ANIMATION.

Neither of them fits your description though.

More importantly... are you sure that is the premise of the show?
And not just using online gaming as a joke material for one episode, like NHK ni Youkoso episode 16?

Question

I am trying to find the name of an anime from most probably 80s (most probably not reaching to early 90s, but still possible). I don't remember many things about it, unfortunately.

The following information is not guaranteed for 100% accuracy: It is most probably a movie (I remember my family renting it as a single video tape). It was a dramatic anime. The story was about the struggles of a lonely kid (a boy). It was most probably passing in Europe, or it was giving that impression. The kid might have a pet with him (possibly a dog). Its Latin name might have only one word (the name of the kid). And, if it affected me as a dramatic story, so it is highly possible that the kid dies at the end of the anime.

I checked Anidb, checked most of the anime movies starting from the late 70s and ending at the early 90s. Unless I missed it, then it is most probably not listed there. If anyone remembers any info on that, I would be really glad if you can share that. And, thanks in advance...

Ok, so... the only descrition you have is that it's a dramatic emotional anime with a kid and a dog? Uh, can you provide a bit more information than that? Like... what the story is about? Was he looking for his mother? Was it mostly about the friendship between him and the dog?

There are several in the World Masterpiece Theater series that might fit your description... such as Dog of Flanders, or 3000 Miles looking for mother (Dagli Appennini alle Ande).

If it's Dog of Flanders, The main character's name is Nero, and he has a dog named Patrache .
It is a very depressing, dramatic story. Much of the anime is actually original story line, covering what happened to Nero before where the original novel took place.

There are two versions of this anime.
The 1975 TV series, and the 1992 theatrical remake. The one you are looking for maybe the theatrical remake.

It is possible that there is a woman involved (it can be his mother, she might be dead, or missing, or another woman might be involved, so many possibilities since I don't remember any further), and similarly, he might be searching for someone. I've checked the animes you have mentioned, neither seem to be correct (in terms of the characters, stories, and the dates).

maybe its movie version of "3000 Miles looking for mother" a.k.a. "Marco" . However, Marco don't have a pet dog but a small monkey.

With a kid, a dog, a sad story and a mother search involved, the only I could think of was Meiken Jolie, in Europe "Belle and Sebastien". However, it's a tv series and not a movie.

Sorry, neither seem to match. Although the animation style seems familiar (for Marco), the one I am trying to find is from the 80s and it is a movie long.

It seems, once again, I have to check in detail all the animes, this time starting from the 70s, in both anidb and animenewsnetwork sites. Luckily, weekend is coming...

It's gotta be about Remi(Alone on the world), so one of these I guess?
Ie Naki Ko, Ie Naki Ko Remi or Chibikko Remi to Meiken Kapi.

It sounds a lot like the famous Remi book at least.

It looks a lot like the Dai Mahou Touge style, but I think it might be from one of the Fairy Musketeer Akazukin episodes.
Not 100% sure though, but I remember seeing an ep with that scene not too long ago in some series.
