    I remember seeing the business library showcasing the entire DVD box set of GITS. Not sure if some arrangement can be made for us to borrow that, and whatever series they might also have, for the screening.

    GITS itself has 5 movies: Original, Innocence, Solid State Society (SSS), The Laughing Man & Individualist Eleven.

    The original should be easier for a general audience; Innocence & SSS has a truckload of quotes from mostly philosophical books and ideological books. Can very easily get a brain concussion if you are not into such stuff Evil or Very Mad

    On the contrary if you are into such deep thought topics, then it is probably the best (because it's the only) anime that seeks to deeply engage its audience intellectually. <--- Me

    GitS:SAC (the TV series, that is) has standalone episodes interspersed between the the complex episodes (aka the laughing man arc). its basically a high-tech cop show with a little philosophy here and there. should appeal to the general public more than the original movie; which i find to be more philosophical. one thing about GitS:SAC though is that some or most of the story has its foundation in politics, which i find hard to follow.

    for those interested in the deeper themes, GitS:SAC also has entire episodes dedicated to the tachikomas and their AI, questioning whether they could be considered sentient or not...

    Not a good idea to show Solid State Society straight off the bat, people who've yet to wtahc the main SAC series might find themselves lost. I think thr ogiginal GiTs would be more accessible, or at least the first SAC compilation movie.

    Or perhaps another Mamoru Oshii film, like Patlabor and Jin-Roh, both of which I feel number among his better works.

    I'd still vote for Eureka 7.

    But still, Lina Inverse is still pretty cool. I remember when they were showing it on TV and I saw her first use Dragon Slayer. Downright epic. Those were good times.

    haha, at the age when they first aired slayers on TV in sg, i wished i could throw fireballs at people. LOL. Not to forgot squid-brain gourry, who had to detach his physical blade before he could use his sword of light in times of "emergency". and also naga and her super ego laughter...

    btw, the 3 slayers series are on close-out/bargain bin at rightstuf... possibly at its cheapest for anyone who's interested...

    Yep, Rightstuff.com is an online vendor based in the US, specialising in anime DVDs. manga and assorted US anime merchandise. the good thing about them is that they always have pretty good sales on DVDs almost all the time, so their prices are cheaper than Amazon's, though they tend to be a little slower

    *hint**hint* anyone interested in buying DVDs online? I'm looking for lobang to share shipping costs.

    Whoa reading the whole topic and still unsure... We're going for FF7AC or FF7ACC??? Because ppl most likely want to see the ACC, but we can only afford AC version... ACC is Blue-Ray only T_T
    Or are we going to buy the AC DVD and screen the ACC fansub Wink)

    Yeah I'd like to see ACC too, but unfortunately I don't have blu-ray player (or money to buy...) T_T I do have my first print limited edition copy of AC though! Original Japanese only. ._.

    I'm not sure if we have the facilities to show blue ray. Or as what hai suggest, that'll be rather dangerous. Since we will be promoting getting the legal DVDs for anime during the event. So chances we just showing the AC is quite high T.T

    ara, i don't suggest anything, just asking, since i know it's dangerous too.

    just some random info, iirc, last year Resident Evil is BlueRay also... Someone actually bring the PS3 to help the screening. 4got his name though... is he maincomm this year?

    and have we decided the 3rd one? or discuss a little more?

    i heard fansubs were sent letters for that series, and now it seems like that isnt any reliable sub groups doing it. i did watch a few episodes though... the "digimon" was quite the WTF...
