Yeah, I get the games and the anime confused all the time, sorry about that ^__^;
I've been meaning to check out Ghost In the Shell, ever since I saw my uncle wearing a t-shirt of it, I've been curious as to what it's like. (Does it have a manga? every time I've been in BooksAMillion I haven't noticed it being there.)
Trigun is really funny, (it does have a bit of swearing, just a warning.) I saw the first few episodes on youtube. I can see why it's popular.
Theirs quite a few good animes out, It's just a matter of what you're really interested in at the moment.
