    Know any more animes based on Egyptian or Greek Mythology?

    (Original post by AngryJellyfish)
    Surprisingly few (that I know of)... a small number take some inspiration from them, e.g. Saint Seiya from Greece, or Yu-Gi-Oh! from Egypt. Then there's Korokoro Pollon, but you won't find English subs for that beyond the first episode. The only other thing that springs to mind is Tezuka's Cleopatra... which the US licensing company subtitled 'Queen of Sex', just as a warning. :p:
    But what about this season's Kamigami no Asobi!? It has managed to combine Greek, Norse, Egyptian and Japanese gods with that most high-brow of genres - the multi-coloured bishie fluff reverse harem!

    There's also the delightfully terribad Hermes - Winds of Love movie, and Arion (which I haven't actually seen).
    Ullysses 31 is based on Homer's The Odyssey .

    Generally stuff based on Greek / Roman / Egyptian mythology isn't the best.

    I took to Facebook to ask for other suggestions, because I knew there HAD to be more than what Cara and I first posted. Forgot about Unico, and moving away slightly from mythology and onto Ancient Greek-themes in general, we came up with Hashire! Melos and Alexander Senki. :p:

    YES. I didn't like it at first- (Maybe because I found the drawings a bit weird :/ ) But I really like it now. <3

    Been watching Samurai Champloo & Girls und Panzer. Finding Girls und Panzer a lot more enjoyable which makes me question my taste in anime.

    Hey Guys;

    Well, I watched the first episode of K a few weeks back but kinda left it for a while.
    Before I watch the second episode, is the anime any good?

    I'd say so, I saw the original and it was pretty good, yet the OVA is about an hour long each, it's in my list and I still need to finish the last episode after about a year XD.

    Ping Pong is SOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOOOD
    The ending of an anime has a huge impact on how I rate the show. And that was an absolutely perfect, fantastic ending. I don't know if it would be correct to really call it a 'sports' show since it doesn't focus on the technical aspects. But it does take a really good look at all the drama, fun and responsibility that is involved in investing oneself in a sport.
    This anime made me feel so incredibly happy and it is just so good in so many ways.

    Also I loved this in the final ep (not-really-a-spoiler)

    Long time no see indeed, and welcome back! Yeah, I can't quite believe how long I've been on TSR... slightly longer than I've been an anime fan. :zomg:

    The rabbit show is Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?, one of the Spring season offerings which is due to end soon. I only watched the first episode, but it looks like a standard 'cute girls doing cute things' slice of life show. :p:

    Oh my gosh, my childhood show is back :O. I'm anticipating this . One thing that's bugging me is the art. They made the bodies so thin!!

    Who's excited for this? most probably me XD
    Definitely looking forward to this remake. Oh, the nostalgia.
