As long as we're talking about other anime, I have to recommend Hajime no Ippo(Fighting Spirit). www.dynamiteglove.com for more information.
Necroth, not dating ourselves too much, I hope.
As for DBZ, back in my civie days, a little weed went a long way. My favorite DBZ joke: How many DBZ characters does it take to change a lightbulb? One, but it takes him 12 episodes to do it.
Boondock Lee, you actually forgot an art. Tai Lee, the compatriot to Princess Azula, has the dim mak real. Of course, I'd like to see someone hit that many pressure points/nerve clusters that quick, that accurate, in a real fight.
By dating ourselves, I mainly mean that I am in my late 20's and most of those commenting on anime here are probably at least 5 years younger than I am, if not 10. And they probably don't remember or have never heard of FotNS. Or, if they have, they classified it with 3x3, Macross or Akira, as a relic of anime days gone by.
My kids love Avatar and we watch every new episode...Ang with hair, he, he, he.
FotNS best scene is when the fat guy EXPLODES after being poked a few hundred times at super fast speed.
Also, bonus points to anyone who has seen the LIVE ACTION version of FotNS. Talk about cheesetastic.
As for Anime, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, and Hellsing are my top 3 series'. Everything else is just candy.
Tenjo Tenghe is pretty fricking cool.
Try The Guyver: Bio-Boosted Armor anime. That show is awesome. It has a good sci-fi plot that casts a more interesting theory on the evolution of humanity, with good ol' fashion violence and no cheesy dialogue. For the most part anyway. It has some pretty creative villains that aren't just evil for the sake of evil, but have interesting backgrounds and personal motives that are more human, and these motives conflict with some of the other villains agendas, adding new dimensions to the unfolding story. It's one of the better anime series to be sure, it's worth checking out.

The DBZ English dubbing was atrocious, but it did have its moments...
Cowboy Bebop is good, as was Outlaw Star, though I owned both subbed, not dubbed. For that matter, we were buying the subbed DBZ/DBGT because the english dubbed sucked nutsacks (not to mention even the "unedited" Funimation copies were edited).
And, again...I am pondering why my brain is shutting down everytime I mention anime....I think it hates me for reliving the past.
