Most people here, in the Czech republic, when hear about anime, imagine Pokémons.
But anime is far more complex than this one and as every art comprises from all quality stuff – ranging from excellent to awfull…
I don’t wanna write about anime and its history – there are people who are entitled to this much more than me.
I would like to show you some of my favourite series – not all of them, of course, since there is not enough time or space for that.
So – lets begin:
Full metal panic I., II., Fumoffu
This serie is really something. A teenager, profi mercenary comes to Japan to protect one girl. He becomes her schoolmate and begin his “undercover” mission. But he imagines “undercover” quite different, than we do. His first day of the school – he comes inside and have lots of guns, granades and knives hidden. If he suspects that someone broke into his locker, he blow it up by charge, rather than simply open it. :-).
It is really funny serie and I give you a little taste of it – a fan cut from YouTube:
It is really just for show, it is understandable, that when you don’t know the plot, you won’t have as much fun as you could have otherwise.

Ghost in the shell I., II.
A legendary serie, inspiration of the Matrix creators. From rather dark and creepy future, where most of the people are rather cyborgs, with artificial brains and bodies.
This serie has everything: great plot, detail characters, fun, action, and so..

And the last one:
The main character is a vampire – Alucard (try to read it in reversed way!). He works for secret organization Hellsing, located in the UK and he eliminates all of the “hell spawns”. Really cool character and with his gun, he can perform really effectively :-).
Here is the intro:

Well and that is all! It was only a little, but if you liked it, there is a whole world of interesting movies and series, which waits just for you! Welcome to the world of imagination!
