MANLY ANIME
« on: July 07, 2010, 01:17:35 pm »
MANIME. YEAH. C'MON, LET'S TALK ABOUT SOME MANLY ANIME/MANGA. NONE OF THAT BLEACH OR NARUTO OR LUCKY STAR JUNK. NOOOOO SIR. I'M TALKING FIST OF THE NORTH STAR, OR COWBOY BEBOP. PULSE-POUNDING, BALLS-TO-THE-WALL TESTOSTERONE BOMBS OF AWESOME. LETS GET THIS DISCUSSION STARTED


(I apologize for the all caps thing)

But anyway, yeah. Ghost in the Shell can be pretty dang manly sometimes. I also just watched the anime version of Highlander, it was friggin awesome

It's true!

God, I'd also agree with Cowboy Bebop, that show was manly to a level of hotness!

I just now noticed the use of the "MANIME" in the original post.  I have to say, I find this use of language to be MANTASTIC.

Watched Amazing Nurse Nanako, it was meh reppy.  Not ecchi enough for me, and probably too short to really get into. 

Needless on the other hand..  That is some MANLY anime if I've ever seen it, thanks for the tip ~.^  More ecchi then A. N. Nanako, mhmm.  I have a hard time watching it however, with all the manaction going on.  I'm too used to my ecchi high school drama shows :/

Berserk was good recommended manly anime.  If you want a show that is set in medieval times of fighting with swords on horseback, and no ninja magic, this is for you.  Its a decent path to self fighting anime.

How about manga?  Or do we need a manly manga thread?

Toriko ( opinions may differ on that) and To-Love-Ru. To-Love-Ru is like a romantic comedy from a guy's side of view.


Im not exactly sure if those have anime's yet, just reading manga here.

There's a lot of anime women that are in what I would think of as manly. I mean they are certainly not targeted towards women. Not josei, shoujo, etc. Crud, can't think of the name now. So let's start with Gunslinger Girl. Is Mezzo the right name? THe girl there was the fighter. Their office is like an old VW bus on the roof?

Pots, the Slam Dunk manga printed in Shounen Jump seemed pretty fun.

It's actually just a manga for now. It would make a pretty brutal anime, though.

Like when Brock hits on all those ladies and whenever Ash saves some Pokemon or in the movies.
