Manga and Anime

At the beginning of the month, Michael Jones asked me if I have, or have had, a manga or anime series that I have particularly enjoyed.

 The answer is actually quite a few. My first exposure to anime was back when it wasn't labled as such through daily afternoon viewings of Speed Racer,/Space Battleship Yamato, Gatchaman, and Captain Harlock.

More recently I've been enjoying Attack on Titan (both the manga and anime series), Blood +, and Death Note in the form of anime, though I've also seen the live action Death Note movie.

Other manga that I've liked quite a bit are Astro Boy and other works by Osamu Tezuka, such as Buddha, and The Lost World,  Lone Wolf and Cub by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima, Akira by Katsuhiro Otomo, NausicaƤ of the Valley of the Wind by Hayao Miyazaki. I'm also really fond of the Anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion.

There are others but those are the ones that occurred to me.

Your tastes are almost identical to mine.
Biggest problem I have is trying to find subtitled versions of any anime/manga in Japan so I can comprehend them.
