Satoshi Kon's Paranoia Agent
Buy from Amazon.com
Satoshi Kon's Paranoia Agent
A young woman who designed a best selling line of stuffed toys. An oversexed reporter who can't pay his bills. A popular schoolboy who's losing his mojo. A teacher at war with her split personality. They're all connected somehow. They're all part of a complex equation. And they all got hit over the head. It looks as though some kid on roller blades is prowling the night knocking people senseless with a baseball bat.
Satoshi Kon's Paranoia Agent
Satoshi Kon (Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers) has teamed up with Madhouse Productions (Metropolis, Captain Harlock) to come up with a surreal series that's hard to define, and impossible to deny. Is it FLCL meets Twin Peaks? We're not sure either. Paranoia Agent is in a class by itself. It's brilliant, and it's out to give anime in general a severe concussion.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Buy from Amazon.com
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
This TV series (based on the characters created for Momaru Oshii's groundbreaking movie) is an astounding and eye-opening joyride through a cyberpunk universe of human-prosthetic hybrids and cutting-edge military technology. Masamune Shirow's elegant and frightening vision of the near-future is compelling and extraordinary, his work is on-par with Blade Runner and William Gibson, and Stand Alone Complex culls more from his seminal manga than the movie was able to.
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Despite the limitations of television and budgetary constraints, the animation never ceases to be fluid, and there's plenty of computer enhanced imagery to go along with the hard-hitting action. Yoko Kanno's amazing soundtrack adds to the flavor and helps catapult this series to super "must-have" status.

Cyber City Collection
That is the premise for this bone-crunching, ultra-violent Anime noir flick, loaded with characters who are sadistic and cunning, giving this film depth and texture. Three criminals-turned-cops stumble upon a plot by the government to create a lethal army of super-cyborgs that are equipped with psychic powers. Under orders of their superior, the three must put a stop to the government's plans -- or die trying.

Demon Lord Dante - Dante Resurrects (Vol. 1)

Demon Lord Dante - Dante Resurrects (Volume 1)In no time, Ryo discovers that he's caught in the middle of an epic war for possession of planet Earth. On one side stands a satanic cult bent on resurrecting the hideous Demon Lord Dante. On the other side is a secret cadre led by Ryo's own father. Can Ryo make sense of things before it's too late? Why does he get the sinking feeling that he might be a demon himself?

All of this should tell you one thing. Go Nagai is back in town. Yes, this series is based on a manga drawn by the creator of DEVILMAN. It's jam packed with demons, monsters, naked ladies in peril, and a whole lot of the ultra-violent. Sit back and enjoy the ensuing carnage. They just don't make Armageddon like this anymore.

Ren & Stimpy
For those of you too young to remember what a really good cartoon is like, Ren and Stimpy simply changed the world forever and catapulted Nickelodeon from a kids network with zero ratings to a network that got college kids to cut their classes to race in front of the TV set to watch this one show.

Ren & Stimpy defined cutting edge and showed how far you could take a cartoon. Just do not watch while drinking coke, unless you want to pay for new shirts!

Kasugai Wasabi Roasted Green Peas
Oh man, are these things addictive. There should be laws against this stuff. These are dried green peas covered with wasabi (a green, spicy horseradish paste that usually goes good with sushi), and while that might sound gross (to the uninitiated), believe us, it's really amazing.

Now admittedly, this isn't for everyone. You've got to enjoy the feeling of your mouth burning with flavor, you've got to love spicy food.

But wow, if this isn't the greatest snack ever invented, well then we don't know what is. Drink lots of water with these guys and then when you're addicted, upgrade to the BIG BAG!
