Very much recommend checking out One Piece episode 283 english dubbed of course.

Forgot to add that One Piece 278 english dubbed should be watched before the one quoted above.

Enjoy.

I'm not a big fan of those, but
  • Space Battleship Yamato
  • Galaxy Express 999
  • Gundam
came to mind immediately. They are all classic in Japan.

And have you heard of Ultraman?

Don't know if this is a classic but I recommend checking out

Michiko & Hatchin - OFFICIAL OP Trailer



Many might not be aware of this but back during the era of the titans like U Nu of Burma, Nehru of India, Sukarno of Indonesia and of course NASSER of Misr, they gathered together in 1955 in what was became known in NASSERIST circles as the concept of Bandung Jamia/Afro-Asian Asabiya.

Sukarno called it a gathering of the colored people of the world, in that they realized that they not only had to deal with racialismo not only from the imperial NATO nations but also unfortunately from their own people, massah's overseers and slaves. Nehru might have a claim to being Aryan but none of the Founders would have won a Nordic beauty contest and none of them wanted to eugenic their wards to create such a group.

A big part of that meeting in 1955 was "cultural cooperation" and from that came many Afro-Asian orgs based in NASSERIST Cairo that brought together groups from of course the Non-Aligned bloc but also the Soviet Asian bloc; the Sino bloc; and Japanese from the capitalist bloc.

Anime has sometimes been criticized for having characters that look very Euro but the linked to anime may be something more along the lines of what Bandung Founders would have liked to see the up and coming generations produce.

If anyone is interested in the literary side of Chinese science fiction, I suggest you pick up the recent English translation of The Three-Body Problem. It honestly puts most recent American novels in the field to shame, which is why it won the Hugo Award last year.

I don't like the sequel, The Dark Forest, quite as much. I think because it uses a different translator.

The Three Body Problem by Cixin Liu is excellent Chinese science fiction.
