The goal:
Recommend me the best Movie/OVA/Short Series I haven't seen.

Run Time:
I am setting a tentative date of July 31st, at 11:59pm eastern time as the end, but may need to change it some due to time constraints (you never know).

Rules:
1) Only one entry per person.
2) The Movie/OVA/OAV should either be a standalone feature or the beginning of a set of titles. I don't want you recommending me, as an example, Samurai X Reflection if I have not seen the series already.
3) The max runtime is 150 minutes or 6 episodes on average.
4) Only titles that I have not seen will be eligible for entry into the contest. Refer to the MyAnimeList link in my signature as a way to make sure I have not seen it, and to gauge what I like.
5) Hentai titles are not eligible for this contest, so nothing 18+.
7) Must be a title I can actually find and one that has been subtitled if it is unlicensed.

After I get through watching them all, I will chose a winner based on which title I liked the most.

The Prize:
Choice between: Desert Punk or Berserk Remastered Edition

I will contact the winner after the contest is over to get your address.

Good luck everyone!

Pffff... I fear I don't know anything that short which you haven't already seen. :diss:

Wait a minute... you haven't seen Gunsmith Cats?

DAMN! There goes my pick. Oh well. And yes, Mnemosyne kick all sorts of ass and has the best damn yuri scenes ever in anime.

Anyway, with zero hopes to win, but I'll give this a shot.

Zettai Shougeki ~Platonic Heart~. Just beware of the ending episode, cuz it has caused tremendous psychological damage to me for several days.

I'll go with that.

Shorter titles can be though to find since I tend to watch loads of them. Glad you were able to spot on though!

Going with one of the last Studio Ghibli movies I've yet to see? Probably a good move :lol2:

Was waiting for someone to recommend Mnemosyne, since it seems like it could be quite the interesting OVA with all that violence and sex :d^_^b:

Oh I'm ready for it! How is it compared to the series? I'm always leery of these condensed versions.

Don't worry about it. Even if someone has never seen the series, the story still makes sense. There's lots of new animation especially the last 30 min. My only gripe about it is some of the minor character introduction is rushed but other than that, this movie is entertaining as hell.

Gunbuster is an old-time, traditional sci-fi/mecha tale by Gainax. It's a six episodes long and the final episode is in black&white, you don't see that to happen usually. Much better than the sequel.

I've been meaning to watch that for a while now, so thanks for the recommendation nakano!

As I have just finished Gunbuster it is time to announce the winner. It came down to Pom Poko and Gunsmith Cats at the end, and I am unable to really chose a winner between them. So I'll do as I normally do and take the easy way out. 42317 and PrfsrSnapesAngel have both won, congratulations!

Since both of you won I will open up the DVD choices to not only include Desert Punk and Berserk but also Ghost in the Shell: SAC Season 1 as an optional prize (I happen to have two of them as well). I have both of your addresses already so just let me know which box set you would like.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest!
