Scenes that sold you on the anime you were watching

Rurouni Kenshin was hands down the best anime during the peak of Toonami. Its also one of the few anime to exist where it has an English Dub that doesn't sound awful in fact the English dub is probably on point with the likes of Dragonball Z, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Yu-Gi-Oh in terms of great English Retranslation

But the scene that turned Rurouni Kenshin from a great anime to the highest shelf possible type of anime was pic related. I know people hate the word "Kino" but this...the hype was almost fucking legendary

I would give this a shot if it wasn’t for the heavy censorship. Kenshin dealt with serious topics such as drug abuse, prostitution, and extreme violence. From what I what I read Toonami heavily censored all of it. It’s a little dissapointing to hear, I do enjoy a good dub but I think I’m gonna skip this one.

They did a good job with the ones you mentioned but I have to Add OutLaw Star and Zeta Gundam. Those two were so good, I can’t watch it in Japanese anymore.

Kenshin's storyline takes place in a "What If" Alternate Universe during a post American Civil War world and Opium Trafficing hitting it's peak

It's the closest you'd ever see to an animated adaptation of The Last Samurai

The dog scene is where the weight of Shinichi's situation sank in for me, and I realized how much development was probably going to happen between him and his new friend.

Plus the music in that scene was extremely fitting. The weird unearthly warbling synthesizers forcing themselves on the purity of traditional orchestra instrumentation, it was exactly what was happening in context to the story.

The death scenes in Another were pretty graphic for an anime and I wasn't expecting that. Hooked me on it.

Reminded me of this. I don’t like dubstep but really liked the soundtrack. Was very fitting.

Don’t get me wrong I did watch Kenshin albeit a long time ago. I was just hoping I could appreciate it in a new language. The censorship bothers me more than I like to admit.

That's such a sweet thing to read his thoughts, I never saw that before. Next to You is my favorite track in the series.

Lol that was me, I downloaded a ton of Joshiraku gifs a few weeks ago and had been looking for places to post them.

Joshiraku would have been better if you didn't need to be Japanese to understand all the word play and locational references
A little too jappy for a western audience but I guess I still enjoyed it. I mean I watched the whole thing. Also goddamn that ED was pumpin

That's like saying sushi would be better if it had hotdogs and ketchup in it.

It's a Japanese show about Japanese entertainers making Japanese jokes. If you didnt get it that's fine but dont knock it for being what it is.

I feel like this scene right here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0YfDFJj0zM is the most popular scene that sells people on the concept of Parasyte


Alright then how graphic are we talking here like put in on a spectrum to something of something equally or more graphic like Elfin Lied.


If all you watch is Hentai Anime I recommend DeerS. If you ever wanted to see a Tumblr feminist go into cardiac arrest show them a show where Humanoid Alien women live to be treated as property and sex objects.

>Genndy Tartakovsky swears on his fucking life he did not watch a fuck ton of Gurren Lagann when pitching Samurai Jack season 5 to Adult Swim.

My friend who is a big anime fan told me that Gurren Lagann like Kill La Kill is a weird example where there are some absolutely remarkable moments in both these shows but then seemingly out of nowhere...the budget just magically disappears and the animation quality just fucking kaplummets

Is this true?

Not really, Gurren Lagann episode 4 (where your picture is all from) was notorious at the time for its animation but that has more to do with the episode's guest director's style than the budget exploding.

Oh that scene is great! I wish I could watch parasyte for the first time all over again.

DeerS you say? I'm very interested.

Entirety of episode 4 of Excel Saga. It was back when the Anime Network was only on On Demand service for Comcast (like early 2000s), so I saw "Excel Saga" and went like, what the hell. why not.

Holy shit I didnt know what I was going into but I was fucking sold.

I’ll check out out. I don’t actually watch much hentai and just browse through them to see the scenes I’m looking for. I’ve only actually watched a handful of them. Honestlyly I didn’t even seen that gif before watching it but if I had would have seen it sooner.

Oh wait sorry I mixed up what the thread was about. So yeah that shower scene was what sold me on hotd. This was probably what sold me on NHK. The detail in this show is pretty great. I love how he plays that mmo with the catgirl which is clearly 100% attended to a mithra from ffxi complete in wardrobe.

Oh boy boy. I have some for you

Berserk (1997)


This scene I originally watched on some really old AMV. It was so hearbreaking and disturbing that I had to watch it. (For those interested: Berserk Fight Song AMV).

Ninja Scroll The Movie


This one I also watched first on an old AMV. (Hallowed by the name - Ninja Scroll).

The fact that the fucked up scenes remained fucked up draw me since I knew western cartoon rarely displayed explicit violence.

Also this kind of anime made me into a fan since they are in the category "those japanese people are insane". So, because this anime fit into that category I knew it was worthwile.

Rurouni Kenshin First OVA

Kenshin tries to protect the women of the caravan.


I saw this scene on a computer store. Some nerds had the pirate version of the four set of ovas in cds. I recognized Kenshin but I was puzzled by the new artstyle, darker tone and blood. I had to see it. One of the nerds was talking about the ova and explaining to the others the differences between the anime series and this.

Tai returns to the Digiworld and says goodbye to his sister.


The whole episode had better animation that the rest of the series. The guy who directed The girl who leaped through time also directed this episode. (Mamoru Hosoda). And only this episode of the Digimon Adventure series.

In his own words the relationship betwen the siblings in the episode reflects more like old lovers finding each other again than just kids being kids. There's a romantic triangle: Koromon representing a young girl and now Tai girlfriend's, Kari the mature woman and Tai former girlfriend's, and Tai the older man who is with the young girl now (Koromon).

First time I saw that scene was off Kazaa. Someone did a really nice AMV of that scene and “Until it Sleep” by Metallica. I’ve been looking forward for ages but haven’t been able to find it. Just wanna make a webm of it.

Wow thanks. I did not expect it to be this bad though. I can definitely say Nostalgia played a good part in me caring about this AMV. Back then, AMVs gave me access to watching anime without having the dvds. I think that was a major reason why people cared about AMVs in general.

The state the AMV is in still has that nostalgic charm to it but I think i might try to recreate it instead of turn it to a webm.

I don't know how I could have forgotten this.
I had always heard that JoJo was bombastic, dramatic, there was posing and 6'5" musclemen, but this scene definitely sold me on the whole package. I never expected Dio to just stroll out of the carriage calmly and quietly, but DOING ALL OF THIS FOR NO REASON, especially the delayed hair flip/pose at the end just fuckin slayed me.

I was rewatching the dubbed Digimon movie a few months back

Tai's sister Kari near the end of the 1st OVA in the film almost gave me a fucking anxiety attack because there is this scene where Kari is just sitting out in the street sobbing as Parrotman is being an absolute dick to Greymon and the surrounding architecture and Kari who has absolutely no fucking idea what to do proceeds to just start aggressively blowing her little toy whistle hoping it'll wake Greymon up but she's so fucking weak that its actually making her choke the more she tries to blow on it.

Parrotmon...Ravioli Ravioli if you so much as hurt this Loli I am going to fucking Explodi.


Cell's Imperfect Form absolutely fucking wrecking Piccolo in the Funimation dub will always be my favorite scene and credit to Tana from TFS he does a fucking AMAZING job at voicing Imperfect and Perfect Cell almost to the point where you can't even tell the difference from the voice actors.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzlYcFtzaew Falkner's soundtrack makes every scene absolutely must watch. Also the last line of dialogue Imperfect Cell tells Piccolo before blowing a massive hole in his chest causing Piccolo's body to propel into the fucking ocean

>I would absorb you Piccolo but I have more then I need from you in my cell structure already...you're just...refuse
