You don't like that, do you, Mr. Undead Marine! RRRRRR!'"

Remind me to tell you the story behind the cat spirit in the tank later, Sean. Now, Ghost In the Shell sort of reminds me of another anime, one that was set in the near future, the early 2000’s:

Patlabor:The Movie – Opening

Premise of this anime was that in the near future, mecha were being used for everything; construction, etc… And there was a special police division that dealt with issues with mecha. Think of it as sort of being CSI:MegaTokyo. It was a lot more realistic then a lot of mecha animes. And here is another old anime I remember watching:

Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water – Opening

It’s a little hard to describe this anime, especially since I started watching 2/3rds of the way through it. The story revolves around Nadia, an ex-circuis performer, and Jean, a young French inventer. They sort of get swept up in events and ends up on the Nautilus, piloted by Captain Gloval Nemo, fighting Neo-Atlantians. Eventually, they learn, um, the secret of Atlantis, Nadia’s mysterious past, and so on. Good anime, actually.
