I know what is on our holiday menu this year – sushi, soba noodles, and a honey glazed ham… And what better way to celebrate the downing of food, than with chopsticks inspired by the Neon Genesis anime series.
While the first Starship Troopers movie brought a lot of attention to the bug menace that threatens the universe, subsequent movies didn’t fare as well. There was a very well done animated series that ran about eleven years ago, and it had some critical acclaim, which is probably why the next entry to the SST universe is going to be an animated feature.
Cartoons are awesome, and a big part of cartoons is that show open. Superman flies around, cheetara beats up some mutants and Ash tries to catch some pokemans, all while some rockin’ music plays. This is not a list of ‘the greatest animated shows’ just the greatest opening sequences! What follows is a list of animated show intros, each more awesome than the last.
I have no idea what is being said here, but the pictures sure do look pretty.

Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai is an extremely influential piece. It has spawned hundreds of other works. Some, like the Magnificent Seven are practically the same movie, transposed to a different time and place. Others like Oceans Eleven and the Three Amigos are send-ups or riffs on its structure. So when I first heard that an anime series had been made based on Seven Samurai my head filled with questions. How faithful would this be? How can you take an two-hour-long film and stretch it over twenty-something episodes? These were all intriguing questions. Of course as you can see from the date of this article, not so intriguing to cause me to drop everything and go watch it, but alas Netflix instant watch makes connoisseurs of us all.
