    The anime I've seen with the most talking is Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex... but the large amounts of speech is in fact one of the plot decives.
    There's nothing wrong with talking in anime, it's the forth most method of storytelling.

    I find anime with hardly any talk to be quite tiredsome, Technolynse comes to mind. No one said a word for the first 15 minutes of the first episode, and the main character doesn't say a word til episode 3. I sure the series gets much better later on, but the lack of words and speaking in this anime really turned me off it.

    Because teasing boys is so much fun.

    Even if it is true that there are many animes that just.....talk and have not movement but there lip flaps, that i cannot take. I agree one of the main talkers in anime is yu-gi-oh. -shudders-.
    But the fact is there trying to cram so much info in one episode that sometimes they dont even do anything, it's modtly flash backs and arguements. it tiresome and believe me i used to watch it, but now i know better, better shows betters plots. GIT:SAC talks....alot but also thats true that it goes majorly with the story, that has a bigger step questioning the laws of physics and exsistence of man/woman.
    there arent many others that i know, well besides DB DBz DBGT DBGT the lost episodes and the 13 some odd movies. but they back up with tons of action and head slicing. lol
    Looking forward to Burst Angel Vol. 3

    typical YGO episode:

    I summon this monster!
    Oh, you fool! I summon this monster to destroy your monster!
    HA HA HA HA!! I ACTIVATE MY TRAP CARD WHICH STOPS YOUR ATTACK!!
    NOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooo......!! Aha, but I have a trap myself which cancels out your trap card!
    Oh yeah!? Well, well, well.... I END MY TURN!!
    I summon this monster and I set all these cards! And then I attack you!
    I activate this trap card!!
    What does that do?
    It allows me to punch you in the face and let me gain a million life points!
    THAT CAN'T BE LEGAL!!
    Read it, stupid!
    *reads* Damn, the card says it and because it says it, I must do it!
    *punches guy in the face*
    OUCH!! But.......
    Huh?
    .......I activate this trap card......
    NOOooo....!!!


    TO BE CONTINUED!!

    anyway....
    is there anything wrong with anime that talk too much?
    though, maybe for some people, too much talk might make things boring
    for anime like Stand Alone Complex and serial experiments Lain,
    the talk, the speech, the debates.... allows the story to unfold

    the Western way of story-telling is basically using actions over words
    ....comic-books and Tarantino flicks....
    let the gun do the talking and so on and so on
    so Westerners want to see more action instead of seeing a bunch of people discuss current events
    they/we want to see blood being spilt rather than a big debate of who did what

    people that have seen movies like"Hero" and "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon" and movies like "Pulp Fiction" and "Face/Off" might see the difference between Western films and Eastern films

    yeah somtimes its hillarious in some animes [dragon ball z for instance] when the good guy and the bad guy just yell at eachother for entie episodes and the story doest progress one bit and theres no actual combat till THE NEXT EPISODE!. Priceless.

    I absolutely agree. both those series and the long speeches allow the plot to unfold and i find nothing wrong with that. plus in GIT:SAC it usually ends up paneling to to oh i forget her name, but you get the point.
    Looking forward to Burst Angel Vol. 3

    I think it all depends on when and what the talking is about. I mean, if it's retarded words that don't add to the show, then they should just shut up, but if it adds to the plot then keep it. Usually I prefer anime which has a lot of talking, yet I do agree that it can be annoying in certain cases.
