Fantastically animated with a sandbox world type of feel. Two brothers, Kuro and Shiro, fight to keep control of the streets of Takaramachi from groups of warring gangs. Some amazingly well animated fight scenes.
Sword of the Stranger
Follows Kotaro, a young boy who is hunted by a group of swordsmen from Ming Dynasty China for mysterious reasons. Among the group is a fearsome Western fighter named Luo-Lang, whose only desire is to find a worthy opponent. Due to circumstances, Kotaro and his dog meet Nanashi, a nameless ronin who is haunted by memories of his past which have led him to avoid drawing his sword ever again. Again really well animated fight sequences
Absolutely brilliant. Truly unique in its animation, story, and execution. Best viewed while high as a kite, but view it regardless.
Upon reaching the train station to death, a dejected soul is informed that he is ‘lucky’ and will have another chance at life. He is placed in the body of a 14-year-old boy named Makoto Kobayashi, who has just committed suicide. Watched over by a neutral spirit named Purapura, the soul must figure out what his greatest sin and mistake in his former life was before his time limit in Makoto’s body runs out.
A Letter to Momo
Momo Miyaura is a shy and imaginative 11-year-old girl who is suffering because of her father’s recent death and the resultant extreme changes in her life. From the big city of Tokyo, Momo’s family moves to her mother’s childhood home, a remote island named Shio where she stumbles upon another world of beings.
Wings of Honneamise
In an alternative Earth, a young astronaut participates in a controversial fledgling space program. Well animated and wonderfully fleshed out world.
Memories is made up of three separate science-fiction stories. In the first, “Magnetic Rose,” four space travelers are drawn into an abandoned spaceship that contains a world created by one woman’s memories. In “Stink Bomb,” a young lab assistant accidentally transforms himself into a human biological weapon set on a direct course for Tôkyô. The final episode, “Cannon Fodder,” depicts a day in the life of a city whose entire purpose is the firing of cannons at an unseen enemy.
The Rebuilds of Evangelion
4 part film remake of the Evangelion TV series, of which 3 parts have been released. Covers the same basic story arch but is notable for its stunning animation. Parts 1 and 2 are exceptional, while part 3 seems to have suffered from a weaker storyline.
Last Minute Addition: Metropolis
Filled with the stylings of art deco, 20’s swing styled jazz, and references to sumerian mythology, Metropolis is a wonderful experience in any genre. Taking place in Metropolis, a multi layered city reminiscent of a hybrid cross between “Blade Runner” Los Angeles and a level out of “Sonic 2″ where robots serve man as a segregated lower working class. Keichi and his uncle are thrust into a world of mystery as they stumble upon a newly developed robot girl Tima, who just might be the link between two worlds
Honorable Mention: Origins Spirits of the Past
Takes place on a future Earth where genetically engineered plants have taken control of vast portions of the biosphere. Two friends, Agito and Cain, live in the tiny and relatively primitive Human zone. After the stumble upon a relic from the past deep within the woods, they are caught up in a conflict between radical human factions and sapient plant life. I thought it started very well and established a very interesting world but petered out toward the end

I am from Minnesota and belong to the Ojibwe tribe. I didn’t grow up on a reservation or anything but we did eat these foods when I was a kid. I live in New York now and I realized that people really don’t know much about indiginous foods – I can get an Ethiopian or Cantonese meal delivered in five minutes but wild rice soup? Forget it. So I thought I’d share some of my fav recipes with you guys. (I might be a little homesick.)
This is a staple grain and it’s soooo healthy. It’s nutty and flavorful – many people on reservations still farm it in the traditional way. This is how we most often ate it, as a salad with nuts, berries and greens. http://blog.streaminggourmet.com/2011/08/28/wild-rice-cranberry-and-almond-salad/
Wild Blueberry Bannock
This is a dope breakfast food. Wild blueberries taste very different than supermarket ones – much sweeter but way smaller. You can make the bread without the berries to dip in soup, it’s crumbly and perfect for broth. http://sundaycrush.com/wild-blueberry-bannock/
I couldn’t actually find a recipe for a traditional stew but it’s pretty straight forward. Scoop out a pumpkin. Put more pumpkin, meat, veggies and broth in the pumpkin. Bake. Eat.
This is a plate that you would typically see at a ceremony or pow wow. The fish is almost always fresh caught and fried with a particularly light batter. you can get traditional batter here: http://redlakenationfoods.com/index.cfm/mixes-batters
I don’t know anywhere else where people eat june berries. But in the summer, in my grandmother’s house, that’s ALL YOU EAT. Juneberry jam, syrup, pie, muffins, cookies…you name it. They’re tart and small and super tasty. http://www.midwestliving.com/recipe/pies/north-dakota-juneberry-pie/
It’s exactly what it sounds like – fried dough. It’s best when it’s crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside and piping hot. At a pow wow you get them in these little paper bags and they just melt in your mouth. http://www.manataka.org/page180.html
This is my favorite thing. You can put anything on top of fry bread; sugar, salt, chocolate, cheese. But the most amazing and popular thing is to just make a taco. Meat, beans, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheese, sour cream and salsa all on top of a savory donut. I’m so surprised this hasn’t become a trendy food craze yet. I am keeping the dream alive that day will come. http://tohbis.com/food.php
There’s many traditional items I didn’t add for but wanted to mention: Maple Syrup is huge, we have giant get togethers where we all go out and tap the tress and boil the sap together. Also, fiddleheads, squash, morel mushrooms, wild game like deer, turkey, beaver, even bear. Not many people still live in the traditional way but a lot of families like mine try to at least keep some of the old ways incorporated into our lives. Hope you guys enjoy a couple of these, miigwech! (that’s thank you in Ojibwe) You can find more recipes here: http://birchbarkbooks.com/all-online-titles/original-local UPDATE: My cousin saw this and knew it was me right away. We haven’t talked in like, 10 months and I had no idea he was an imgurian – So there you go, anonymous internet identity blown and thesis confirmed that all Ojibwe’s know each other. HA!

Two years ago I met this girl…
She was very intriguing to me, though I couldn’t explain quite why. On the surface she was no different than any other woman, and yet, there was something I liked about her. A LOT.
She liked me too, and we began to hang out more and more…
But it was always platonic. We were just friends. Just two close friends who had moved to this city around the same time and had formed a familial bond with each other as we discovered our place in it.
But then everything changed….
And not just when the Fire Nation attacked. As things can, sometimes, I began to feel something else for this beautiful brunette. Lucky for me, she felt it too.
It began quickly…
I even posted about it a few months back. Got lost in user sub….like all my posts….anyway, so we began to date.
Eventually she told me something one night that I had never heard before
Sure I’d had girlfriends, but never anything so serious, and never anything so passionate. Lucky for me she said it first because I was too nervous to do it myself (I’m a wimp like that)
But of course I said it too…
I damn near screamed it!
And ever since, things have been a fairy tale…
*Que cliche* [eye rolling intensifies]
So tonight I’m asking her a question…
To tell the truth I’m more than a little nervous.
But I’m mostly excited!
You would be too if you were me! I’m asking my best friend to be my wife. I’m asking her to put up with my shit for the next several decades, until we’re both old and smell funny and look even weirder. And I can’t wait to get started….you know, if she’ll agree to that deal. (It might be a tough sell given how much better looking than me she is =P)
Le Bling Bling
Just to show off. It’s a new ring with a diamond that used to grace my grandmother’s hand. She and granddad were married for 57 years, so I hope it’s got some charm still left in it! Wish me luck Imgurians!
By popular demand, here’s my angel
Everyone wants to see a picture of her, so here she is! It’s my favorite photo of her because I snuck it in while she wasn’t looking (she’s very private, and it turned out like this =)

Bought a few boxes of “video game” stuff today while out at memorial day garage sales and wanted to share the unboxing.
Date: Wednesday, 28 May 2014 15:06
Opening the three boxes.
Wow that’s a lot of NES games.
Close up of the NES games.
Hmm, lots of handheld stuff and some SNES games!
Pulled out some of gameboy games, nice!
I was told this was buried under the nes games.
I’m so happy about those boxed Zelda games!
Close up of the Atari box, it’s stuffed full of games!
Yup, just a few nes games.
Thanks for looking!

I thought imgur would enjoy some mindfucks to ponder whilst you’re at work! Message me some of the mindfucks you come up with whilst you’re probably meant to be working and I’ll make an imgurian edition. Full credit goes to this thread. I just enjoy browsing them and sharing them with imgur! http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/24amul/what_is_the_biggest_mindfuck_ever/
